The article lists top selling books including "Telling Ain't Training," by Harold D. Stolovitch and Erica J. Keeps, "Career Contentment: Don't Settle for Anything Less!" by Jeffrey Garton, and "10 Steps to Successful Project Management," by Lou Russell.
The article focuses on the importance of workplace relationships to the success and satisfaction in the workplace. The professional relationship that has the most impact on work experience is the relationship with immediate supervisors. It is noted that a good model for workplace relationship would be the one that addresses the needs and wants of both the manager and the staff. In fact, the professional relationship between managers and their staff can be effective through a practical process that enables both parties to identify mutual obligations and expectations.
The article presents a global workforce survey conducted by SkillSoft Corp. which shows that 74 percent of workers have been asked to do tasks without having received pertinent training. According to Kevin Young, general manager at SkillSoft, training shortage can lead to poor proiect control, over-running of costs, and lower productivity. The survey found that customer service and operations teams were positions that highly need more training. It is noted that that one of the key issues that organizations are facing is a war for talent both from a retention and attraction point of view.
The article evaluates the Amazon Kindle developed by Amazon.com Inc.
The article presents a study "Workplace Conflict and How Businesses Can Harness It to Thrive," by CPP Global which shows that conflict can increase creativity and productivity in the workplace. The study included 5,000 full-time employees in Europe and North America about their attitudes toward conflict. According to the study, 85 percent of employees reported dealing with conflict to some degree, while 49 percent of respondents said that personality clashes and warring egos were the primary causes of workplace conflict. The study found that 76 percent of respondents identified positive outcomes from conflict.
The article presents a survey conducted by Adecco S/A which asked leaders to list their priorities during an economic slowdown in the U.S. According to the survey, the first priority was generating revenue and the second was pursuing growth opportunities. Leaders noted that generating revenue becomes the top priority during the economic downturn. Rich Thompson, vice president of talent management at Adecco, was discouraged by the results which reflect a growth through cutting mentality at many organizations.
The article focuses on the use of competency models in training of business enterprises. The models were introduced by David McClelland which aimed at defining the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required for high performance. According to Christine Dolan, senior director of leadership development at Pepsi Bottling Group, the models shape the work from selection to career planning. In fact, the importance of competency models to business effectiveness has been confirmed in various studies. It is noted that competency models help leaders to lead their teams by supporting employees to reach their maximum potential.
