  1. Are you Prepared for Post-COVID facilitation - will it be the same but different?

    Are you Prepared for Post-COVID facilitation - will it be the same but different?                               The prospect of returning to face to face facilitation has been a dominant subject in the training conversations I’ve had recently. It’s a rich subject for debate due to the broad range of opinion and attitude amongst those Read more...
  2. Be careful how you sell your “Fresh Start” – Do you have the tools to make it a success?

    The early months of 2021 have presented our customers, and organisations around the world, with a host of opportunities to declare that it’s time for a “Fresh Start”. A performance or operational reset that allows them to put the past behind them and declare that they are ‘starting from day one’. It’s a great way to get team members Read more...
  3. Can Executives Improve Listening Skills by Switching off Video Cameras and Playing Games?

    A couple of pieces of research this week have made me think. The first was from McKinsey - The Executive Guide to Better Listening - https://www.mckinsey.com/featured-insights/leadership/the-executives-guide-to-better-listening The premise is: Strong listening skills can make a critical difference in the performance of senior executives, but few Read more...
  4. Time for Team (re) building? Here's some advice for selecting Icebreakers…

    Time for Team (re) building?  Here's some advice for selecting Icebreakers… Just about every work conversation I have at the moment involves people from the L+D community anticipating a return to face-to-face or hybrid (face to face and on-line) delivery of learning. As I said in last month’s blog I’m counseling an approach which makes no assumptions about how employees and colleagues will be when they return - there Read more...
  5. What are the Implications for a Return to Work and the Time of Hybrid Learning?

    What are the Implications for a Return to Work and the Time of Hybrid Learning? There’s a definite sense that we are now entering a new phase in how the learning and development sector responds to the pandemic. The restrictions placed on face-to-face learning have, in some geographies, relaxed and made real the possibility of some return, (with appropriate practical safeguards of course). However, I’m not hearing any Read more...
  6. Are you Dancing at the end of The Change Curve?

    Are you Dancing at the end of The Change Curve?                                 "The Change Curve” is one of those models which seems to have been around forever. It’s been a useful tool in explaining everything from personal grief after a loss, to understanding the response when we implement Read more...
  7. Living with this 'Normal' Provides a Positive Creative Environment

    Living with this 'Normal' Provides a Positive Creative Environment I think of myself as a ‘Creative’ - somebody who makes a living from creating new things that have value to my company. There are millions of Creatives out there, you almost certainly know somebody in some field who fits into this category; so it always surprises me when people misunderstand the creative process so badly. One of the most Read more...
  8. Gamification, Experiential Learning and the Challenge of Virtual Learning

    Gamification, Experiential Learning and the Challenge of Virtual Learning Education has always been a fertile space for the creation of new terminology and models. Applied in the right spaces these concepts and semantics help us to more-accurately define what we do, but applied more casually they obscure real and important differences in approach. The pandemic has driven a great deal of learning on-line, and created the Read more...
  9. Developing Curiosity and Agility at arms-length?

    Developing Curiosity and Agility at arms-length? Last week my colleague Graham Cook, MD of RSVP Design, passed me a report to read, suggesting that it was highly relevant to how we support our customers in developing new business strategies for a very different world. The survey was compiled by Survey Monkey and, as you would expect, makes much use of data gathered from US companies. 2 key Read more...
  10. Challenges and Successes in On-line Experiential Learning

    Nobody working in the learning and development field can have avoided the need for some radical rethinking over the past seven or eight months. The initial rules banning most face to face contact have been replaced by more nuanced restrictions, but not before a massive migration, and corresponding up-skilling, to on-line and virtual ways of working Read more...
