Them Grow or Watch Them Go: Career Conversations Employees
economic conditions, unemployment levels, or any other business
factor imaginable, your best employees - the ones you need
most - want one thing from you, plain and simple: To support
their growth and development. Study after study confirms that
development is the single most powerful tool managers have
for driving engagement, retention, productivity, and results.
Yet, learning leaders know that career development is frequently
the thing that gets sidelined unless or until the organization
demands that some form be submitted during regular review
Colleague and friend, Beverly Kaye, founder and co-CEO of
Career Systems International (www.careersystemsintl.com)
and bestselling author on workplace performance, and Julie
Winkle Giulioni, co-founder and principal of DesignArounds
have co-authored the new book,
Help Them Grow or Watch Them
Go: Career Conversations Employees Want, which
sheds much needed light on what managers can specifically
do - within the time-starved, priority-rich, pressure-cooker
environment in which they operate - to support employees'
careers. It comes down to this: Engage in short, ongoing conversations
with employees about their career options, needs, and passions.
It's really that simple... and that complex.

Opportunities to Attend Training Ain't Performance (TAP) Workshop
In November 2012, Harold Stolovitch will be conducting two
one-day Training Ain't Performance workshops for the Canadian
Society for Training and Development (CSTD). The first will
be held in Toronto, Canada on November 14, and the second
will be in Calgary, Canada on November 26.
More and more 21st century organizations are transforming
their training entities into workplace learning and performance
(WLP) support groups. This very involving one-day workshop
introduces you to the basic concepts of performance consulting
- a systematic process that allows training professionals,
OD or HRD specialists and even managers to analyze a request
for training or any other type of intervention and determine
whether or not it is necessary/sufficient. It includes materials
and exercises that deal with human capital and performance
engineering. The workshop guides you through a thinking and
decision-making process that sets the foundation for becoming
a true workplace learning and performance consultant. You
leave with a set of skills and tools that are highly valued
in today's competitive environment.

a Jump Start on Holiday Gifts For Your Employees
what to give your employees this holiday season? Give them
the gift of knowledge! After 10 years, this best-selling book
has been updated, expanded and enhanced to reflect almost
a decade of progress to give readers a fresh look at what
works and what doesn't in the world of training and learning.
Fans of Telling Ain't Training will be relieved to
find that its lively, user-friendly tone has been carefully
preserved. In fact, this is a book that faithfully practices
what it preaches, engaging the reader from page one and immediately
involving them in the first of many try-it-yourself exercises
in learning. This second edition adds a new section that addresses
technology and learning conceptually and provides rich examples
and pragmatic considerations. The ultimate goal of the book
is to offer the reader an opportunity to break through learning
barriers, to separate learning myth from research-based findings,
and to dispel counterproductive beliefs and practices that
harm the instructional process.
