"Chances are, you’ve heard of eLearning and the benefits that it offers. The fact is, online learning allows students to access their learning materials at any of time of the day, from virtually any location. This makes eLearning a flexible alternative to traditional learning styles, including classroom work."
Today, we are in the midst of another fundamental rethinking of what organizations are and for what purpose they exist. If organizations existed in the execution era to create scale and in the expertise era to provide advanced services, today many are looking to organizations to create complete and meaningful experiences.
I would argue that management has entered
a new era of empathy.
This quest for empathy extends to customers, certainly, but also changes the nature of the employment contract, and the value proposition for new employees. We are also grappling with widespread dissatisfaction with the institutions that have been built to date, many of which were designed for the business-as-machine era. They are seen as promoting inequality, pursuing profit at the expense of employees and customers, and being run for the benefit of owners of capital, rather than for a broader set of stakeholders. At this level, too, the challenge to management is to act with greater empathy.

I had opportunities to lead people. I read about leaders. None of those were where leadership began for me. My leadership was …
Research shows mindful awareness practiced regularly can become a trait. Here are seven skills/traits combined as the COMANDS model for great leadership with effective results. Here is a brief summary....
The traditional view of management is to drive results at all costs. Be hard on employees and they will perform. That employees’ personal lives don't matter, as they have nothing to do with work.

Today’s managers need to tap into other motivators to get results and inspire the best performance from employees.

Since Code for America's inaugural year in 2011, 28 municipal governments have participated in the (CfA) Fellowship Program. Last year, officials from 80+ cities attended the annual CfA summit in San Francisco, when the Code for America civic innovation community gathers in person for three days of collaborating, connecting and learning.
One of the main things that these municipal governments have in common is their willingness to innovate. Many have Chief Innovation Officers, who are charged with translating ideas of government innovation including open data initiatives, which are developed to identify better ways to use technology and spark the kind of citizen engagement that leads to action.
For all of the cities that have embraced the Code for America ideal of open data and transparency there are numerous governments that haven’t. But why? ...
