    Facilitating learning is a strange kind of business, from the outside it often looks like an easy thing to do “You just watch folk doing stuff then ask a few questions”, while from the inside it can be one of the most physically and emotionally draining tasks you’ll ever undertake.

My oft-repeated question is “How do you measure the effectiveness of the training / programmes / learning you design?” Now if I was designing learning that could be Read more...
  5. Some suggested remedies to help cure Customer Service Blindness in your organisation

    Customer Service Blindness I may be naive, but I don’t experience many occasions where customer-facing employees go out of their way to provide poor service.

  6. Teamworking Skills: Its about Compatibility, not Cloning

    With the (soccer) World Cup  in full swing it’s probably no surprise that this months blog is focused on Teamwork and Teamworking Skills  (we did contemplate drama but decided that not all the on-field acting was entirely wholesome).

  9. 5 Questions to explore your thinking about cultural differences!

A quick answer please - I’m looking for your first response. Ok…the three things are a panda, a monkey and a banana.” There are two obvious links - and I’m sure Read more...
