HR: Human Resources

HR:  Human Resources

“Because I’m a people person.” I will never forget my college professor telling our class that this was the worst answer to the interview question “why did you get into HR?”  She was right, of course.  However, over recent months I’ve heard many HR horror stories that make me wonder if some HR professionals need to re-visit their roots. 

Increasing Knowledge Transfer

Increasing Knowledge Transfer

One of the biggest challenges of designing a workshop, a class or program is determining how best to help people transfer the skills and tools they acquired into their jobs.  I read recently that if you give students approximately 15 minutes to reflect and write about what they have learned at the end of your training day the odds of transfer increase by 25% or more.  Outside of the classroom, I believe there is great possibility to apply this principle as well.
