Corporate Training

There is quite a bit that corporations can do in the area of corporate training. Corporations are providing additional training for their employees. Emotional Intelligence is one training area. Successful managers need high Emotional Quotient (EQ) or Emotional Intelligence (EI) to work effectively.
It is the ability to see emotions in self and others, to talk about different emotional responses, and to use information to make intelligent decisions (Goleman, 2000). I read an article on EQ that said, “people good at managing relationships tend also to be self-aware, self-regulating, and empathetic” (Goleman, 2000, p. 33). This article also said “at the highest levels of the company, where differences in technical skills are of little importance. In other words, the higher the rank of the person, the more emotional intelligence capabilities are needed for decision making effectiveness” (Goleman, 1986, p. 94).
For a manager emotional intelligence is needed to be successful and to work in a team (Goleman, 1986). The article stated that the core competencies required for emotional intelligence are “the perception of emotions in one’s self and others, the understanding of these emotions, and the management of emotions” (Feldman, 2001, p. 4). For me to be successful I need to be able to work in a team. Most companies rely on teams of employees working together.
During my research I found an article that discussed university classes in emotional intelligence. One article stated:

A current trend in education is to teach students about how their emotional intelligence can have a positive or negative effect on their career. Many universities are now offering courses in interpersonal relationships and emotional intelligence in an attempt to prepare students to be leaders. Leaders cannot…...

...The first thing I would do in the training seminar is a documentary program. This is where employees would learn about each foreign country’s history, culture, institutions, geography, and economics. I would use videotaped and Web-based presentations to help the employees get a visual understanding of each company’s culture. (Kreitner, 2009, p. 107) In doing this, I could focus on each aspect of the business and how it is interpreted in a foreign country. For example, I would have them watch the previous day’s news on the Web so if a client wanted to talk about current news, my sales personnel and executives would know what they are talking about. It is important to know what the current events are. It can be local sports news, the weather, or entertainment new. It is very important to know what is going on. You cannot afford to sound like you don’t know anything about the foreign country you are doing business with. I would also try to get my employees familiar with the other culture through exposure to a series of simulated intercultural incidents, or typical problem situations. (Kreitner, 2009, p. 107) An example would be an incident when you have to answer why people in a certain culture respond a certain way. You could have several answers to choose from and you find pick until you find out the correct answer. When you pick the correct answer, the feedback is extensive, describing similarities and differences between the two cultures. Gradually, the trainee......

E-Learning and the Changing Face of Corporate Training and Development

...E-Learning and the Changing Face of Corporate Training and Development Max Zornada As much as  is critical to a manufacturing supply chain environment, e-learning is critical in a knowledge dependent supply chain environment. Larry Pereira, Motorola Internet technologies and the advent of e-learning applications in many organisations have made a fundamental difference to the way organisations deliver training and development content, activities and experiences to their employees. Some of the organisations at the forefront of deploying e-learning technologies have been global corporations and/or transaction processing intensive organisations, who typically have difficulties assembling their staff for traditional classroom based training activities, either due to logistical difficulties or because of the impact this would have on work flows and business continuity. Such organisations have developed approaches to e-learning and competency development that overcome the logistical problems of conventional training by making innovative use of e-learning. This paper examines the approaches used by several leading global, Australian and Asian organisations, including Cisco Systems, Motorola, Qantas and several others by drawing on a field study conducted by the writer during –. It attempts to identify some key emerging trends and practices in the field, and lessons that can be learnt from the experiences of organisations reviewed, for the successful deployment of e-learning......

...How training and development supports business growth Introduction Tesco is the largest British retailer and is also the world’s third largest grocery retailer with outlets across Europe, USA and Asia. The business began in 1919 with one man, Jack Cohen, selling groceries from a stall in the East End of London. Jack bought surplus stocks of tea from a company called T.E. Stockwell. T.E. Stockwell and Cohen combined their names to brand the tea Cohen originally sold – TESCO tea. In 1929, the first Tesco store opened in north London. Tesco has expanded since then by a combination of acquisition of new stores, retail services and by adapting to the needs of consumers. Tesco has net profits (before tax) of around £3 billion. Tesco’s primary aim is ‘to serve the customer’. Keeping existing customers happy is important, as they are more likely to return. This is more cost effective for the business than acquiring new ones. In the UK Tesco now has over 2,200 stores ranging from the large Extra hypermarket style stores to small Tesco Express high street outlets. Tesco’s original product range of grocery and general merchandise has diversified to include banking, insurance services, electrical goods as well as telephone equipment and airtime. This move towards ‘one stop shopping’ means customers can meet all their purchasing needs from one place. Tesco has also expanded its customer base through its website which attracts one million regular users. As the company has grown...

...rethink how they can train and develop their workers to be able to function in such a dynamic, ever-changing working environment. At the same time, it was important for employers to develop new skills too, to compete in the global market and be competitive (Noe, 2008). So as to cope with these changes and uncertain financial times, training and ongoing learning as part of the employee’s job profile have been given priority, where the time and expenses involved are now being considered to be investments in human capital, allowing companies to realize the full worth of these “assets”. These practices and policies are being taken up by most companies in countries of the western world (Tovey, 2008). There are a number of factors or events which have brought about this shift in thinking where companies and organizations have policies which pertain specifically to the enhancement of employees’ training and encourage ongoing and lifelong learning. The principle behind these policies, one could speculate, is simple and to the effect that these organizations hope to harness and cultivate the strengths and ambitions of employees by providing extensive training and help in the development of the ability of these employees to reach their ambitions within the company over the years to come, and thus offset the costs as investments into human capital, an organization’s most valuable asset (Stone, 2008). As advancements are made into technology and science, organizations continue to......

...Training a Cost or an Investment How do you view training and development in your business? Do you need to quantify and measure it? Is the value you place on developing your staff and management purely monetary or is there a greater benefit to the individual and to the organisation? In a study carried out by the International Institute of Management Development 80% of respondents were unable to quantify the effect of development. Yet millions of pounds are invested, in management development alone, each year in the UK. It just doesn’t add up. It is engrained in all good businesses to test, measure and know their numbers. So why spend millions without knowing the result. So what is the value of training? Many organisations say they now agree that their work force is their greatest asset and so investing in their development is both necessary and worthwhile these organisations place a high value on training. However, some still see training as a necessary interruption to work and productivity and place very little value upon it. The fact is that the value of training is and always has been difficult to measure. However we find that in organisations which place a high perceived value upon development the real benefits are far greater than in those organisations which do not. Changing the perception of training in an organisation is like changing any cultural belief but it can be done by ensuring that the true value of this work is communicated clearly......

Safety Training. Some of the methods that might be used to identify training needs are: 1. Surveys 2. Interviews- gender sensitivity training 3. Skill Matrix Gender sensitivity: Identifying the needs: We have used the interview format to identify this.

All information must be kept confidential, and the interviewee will be assured of this. The interview will be semi-structured. Some questions are: 1. Do you think men and women with equal efficiency can do all kinds of work? 2. Are women paid less as compared to their male counterparts? 3. Do you feel your work is not taken seriously and/or your say is not considered in decisions by male colleagues? (ask a female employee) 4. Have you ever been sexually harassed at the workplace? 5.

...or taking part in his/her chosen sport. If a stationary level of performance, consistent ability in executing a few limited skills is your goal, then engaging only in your sport will keep you there. However, if you want the utmost efficiency, consistent improvement, and balanced abilities sportsmen and women must participate in year round conditioning programs. The bottom line in sports conditioning and fitness training is stress, not mental stress, but adaptive body stress. Sportsmen and women must put their bodies under a certain amount of stress (overload) to increase physical capabilities. click here to read the rest of this article Weight Training Ideal Weight & BMI Better performances can be the product of a number of factors. This product is primarily the outcome of efficient technique, the progression of speed and the maturing competitive attitude on a sound basis of general endurance, all round strength and general mobility. The development of all round strength is best achieved via circuit training and then progressing this through weight training. A method of determining if you have an ideal body weight is to calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI). To calculate your BMI divide your weight in kilograms by your height in metres squared (weight ÷ height²). The normal acceptable range of this measurement is 20.1 to 25.0 for men and 18.7 to 23.8 for women. A more accurate assessment of your ideal weight takes into account your body composition....
