Why are We so Caught Up on the Millennial Discussion?

The last few months have been interesting. It seems that everywhere I go there is a discussion about Millennials. From who is a Millennial to how to best deal with them? I have also been receiving calls asking whether we offer training on how to “deal” with Millennials. This is definitely a generation that is disrupting the system.

When your team is struggling, do you become a better manager?

My favorite NFL coach nearly always uses the following statement after a team loss. “We have to coach better.” It’s pragmatic and accurate.

Need to Grow? Don’t just train. Install and commit!

‘Installation’ is not just for software! The most productive and successful sports and business teams install playbooks, strategies, and skills that vary with the environment, competition, and initiative. Companies install – and pay greatly for – technical platforms that require daily use in order to maximize their value. The same is true for sales and leadership training. But most of the time, we view training as a chance to learn a couple ‘nuggets’, despite the fact that (research proves) we literally forget 85% of the content within 90 days. Why do we do this to ourselves?

Diversity Training Brings Corporate Values to Life - Part 2

Recognizing the Value of Diversity
Hall added, “Everyone agreed that any new training needed to focus on the human side of diversity and the personal toll insensitivity takes on individuals and teams. A key criterion was that the training had to be grounded in the company’s values and address actual situations that managers have already or may encounter in a BNFL Inc. plant.”
