Informal Learning: Fitting the Context of Today’s On-The-Go World

June 5, 2013 | Joel Gendelman, Jerry Eonta

Informal learning, although difficult to quantify, is a critical component of skills development at all stages of the employee lifecycle. As much as 75% of learning in the workplace occurs through informal methods, or tacit knowledge. To this end, organizations and leaders need to shift the focus away from formal training programs and traditional methods such as classroom instruction and begin to harness the power of informal learning in their organizations. Not only can informal learning methods be cost-effective opportunities to build employee skill-sets, but many variations and techniques exist that organizations can leverage.

BlogWant Vs. Can

Those Who Want to Lead vs. Those Who Can

May 15, 2013 | Warren Bobrow | HCI

I’m not a big fan of leadership theories or any of the mysticism that surrounds what makes a great leader. Yes, we need people to direct employees and inspire others in the organization (personally, I think the second one comes from individual employees, but that’s a topic for another blog post), but exotic hypotheses about how this works have not been supported.

BlogTraining Without a Hammer

Training is Not a Hammer

May 9, 2013 | Roy Pollock | HCI

My father used to say frequently, “To a young boy with a new hammer, everything is a nail.” Unfortunately, for many young managers, training is a hammer and every sort of performance challenge is a nail.
