Mindset, behaviour, values and the ability to reflect, change and grow are all valuable characteristics - but are they being nurtured?While it's easy to slip on the rose-tinted glasses when looking at the challenges of business 20 years ago, it's fair to say that the landscape has significantly shifted in the last couple of decades.
The NAACP bestows the annual Image Awards for achievement in the arts and entertainment, and the annual Spingarn Medals for outstanding positive achievement of any kind, on deserving black Americans. The NAACP's headquarters is in Baltimore, with additional regional offices in California, New York, Michigan, Colorado, Georgia, Texas and Maryland.[6] Each regional office is responsible for coordinating the efforts of state conferences in the states included in that region. In 1905, a group of thirty-two prominent African-American leaders met to discuss the challenges facing people of color and possible strategies and solutions.

The Race Riot of 1908 in Abraham Lincoln's hometown of Springfield, Illinois, had highlighted the urgent need for an effective civil rights organization in the U.S.
On May 30, 1909, the Niagara Movement conference took place at New York City's Henry Street Settlement House, from which an organization of more than 40 individuals emerged, calling itself the National Negro Committee. The conference resulted in a more influential and diverse organization, where the leadership was predominantly white and heavily Jewish American. According to Pbs.org "Over the years Jews have also expressed empathy (capability to share and understand another's emotion and feelings) with the plight of Blacks. As a member of the Princeton chapter of the NAACP, Albert Einstein corresponded with Du Bois, and in 1946 Einstein called racism "America's worst disease".[21][22] Du Bois continued to play a pivotal role in the organization and served as editor of the association's magazine, The Crisis, which had a circulation of more than 30,000.
An African American drinks out of a segregated water cooler designated for "colored" patrons in 1939 at a streetcar terminal in Oklahoma City. In its early years, the NAACP concentrated on using the courts to overturn the Jim Crow statutes that legalized racial segregation. The NAACP began to lead lawsuits targeting disfranchisement and racial segregation early in its history. In 1916, when the NAACP was just seven years old, chairman Joel Spingarn invited James Weldon Johnson to serve as field secretary. The NAACP devoted much of its energy during the interwar years to fighting the lynching of blacks throughout the United States by working for legislation, lobbying and educating the public. The NAACP also spent more than a decade seeking federal legislation against lynching, but Southern white Democrats voted as a block against it or used the filibuster in the Senate to block passage. In alliance with the American Federation of Labor, the NAACP led the successful fight to prevent the nomination of John Johnston Parker to the Supreme Court, based on his support for denying the vote to blacks and his anti-labor rulings. The organization also brought litigation to challenge the "white primary" system in the South. The board of directors of the NAACP created the Legal Defense Fund in 1939 specifically for tax purposes. With the rise of private corporate litigators like the NAACP to bear the expense, civil suits became the pattern in modern civil rights litigation. The NAACP's Baltimore chapter, under president Lillie Mae Carroll Jackson, challenged segregation in Maryland state professional schools by supporting the 1935 Murray v.

The campaign for desegregation culminated in a unanimous 1954 Supreme Court decision in Brown v. The State of Alabama responded by effectively barring the NAACP from operating within its borders because of its refusal to divulge a list of its members. New organizations such as the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) rose up with different approaches to activism. The NAACP continued to use the Supreme Court's decision in Brown to press for desegregation of schools and public facilities throughout the country. By the mid-1960s, the NAACP had regained some of its preeminence in the Civil Rights Movement by pressing for civil rights legislation. In 1993 the NAACP's Board of Directors narrowly selected Reverend Benjamin Chavis over Reverend Jesse Jackson to fill the position of Executive Director. In 1996 Congressman Kweisi Mfume, a Democratic Congressman from Maryland and former head of the Congressional Black Caucus, was named the organization's president.
In the second half of the 1990s, the organization restored its finances, permitting the NAACP National Voter Fund to launch a major get-out-the-vote offensive in the 2000 U.S. During the 2000 Presidential election, Lee Alcorn, president of the Dallas NAACP branch, criticized Al Gore's selection of Senator Joe Lieberman for his Vice-Presidential candidate because Lieberman was Jewish. Alcorn, who had been suspended three times in the previous five years for misconduct, subsequently resigned from the NAACP and started his own organization called the Coalition for the Advancement of Civil Rights.
Alcorn's remarks were also condemned by the Reverend Jesse Jackson, Jewish groups and George W.
The Internal Revenue Service informed the NAACP in October 2004 that it was investigating its tax-exempt status based on Julian Bond's speech at its 2004 Convention in which he criticized President George W.
As the American LGBT rights movement gained steam after the Stonewall riots of 1969, the NAACP became increasingly affected by the movement to suppress or deny rights to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. This aspect of the NAACP came into existence in 1936 and now is made of over 600 groups and totaling over 30,000 individuals.
In 2003, NAACP President and CEO, Kweisi Mfume, appointed Brandon Neal, the National Youth and College Division Director.[46] Currently, Stefanie L.
Since 1978 the NAACP has sponsored the Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) program for high school youth around the United States. When right-wing media maven Andrew Breitbart publicized a maliciously edited video of a speech at a NAACP-sponsored Georgia event by USDA worker Shirley Sherrod, the mainstream press recycled his libel without properly vetting it, and the organization itself piled on without properly checking what had happened.[48] NAACP president and CEO has since apologized. 21.Jump up ^ Fred Jerome, Rodger Taylor (2006), Einstein on Race and Racism, Rutgers University Press, 2006. 22.Jump up ^ Warren Washington (2007), Odyssey in Climate Modeling, Global Warming, and Advising Five Presidents. 30.Jump up ^ AJCongress on Statement by NAACP Chapter Director on Lieberman, American Jewish Congress (AJC), August 9, 2000. 33.Jump up ^ "President Bush addresses the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's (NAACP) national convention" (video).

The Barnard College Library recently completed a move to a temporary space in the college’s former gym while a new library building is being constructed. Rutgers University librarians took a perhaps more traditional approach to art in the library by developing a permanent gallery space. Teaching information literacy to art majors can often be a dicey prospect, given the emphasis on studio work over traditional written research in many fine arts degree programs.

They were particularly concerned by the Southern states' disfranchisement of blacks starting with Mississippi's passage of a new constitution in 1890. In fact, at its founding, the NAACP had only one African American on its executive board, Du Bois himself.
In the early 20th century, Jewish newspapers drew parallels between the Black movement out of the South and the Jews' escape from Egypt, pointing out that both Blacks and Jews lived in ghettos, and calling anti-Black riots in the South "pogroms". Storey was a long-time classical liberal and Grover Cleveland Democrat who advocated laissez-faire free markets, the gold standard, and anti-imperialism. In 1913, the NAACP organized opposition to President Woodrow Wilson's introduction of racial segregation into federal government policy, offices, and hiring. It was influential in winning the right of African Americans to serve as officers in World War I.
Because of disfranchisement, there were no black representatives from the South in Congress. Southern states had created white-only primaries as another way of barring blacks from the political process. The NAACP's Legal department, headed by Charles Hamilton Houston and Thurgood Marshall, undertook a campaign spanning several decades to bring about the reversal of the "separate but equal" doctrine announced by the Supreme Court's decision in Plessy v. Board of Education that held state-sponsored segregation of elementary schools was unconstitutional. These newer groups relied on direct action and mass mobilization to advance the rights of African Americans, rather than litigation and legislation.
Daisy Bates, president of its Arkansas state chapter, spearheaded the campaign by the Little Rock Nine to integrate the public schools in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Johnson worked hard to persuade Congress to pass a civil rights bill aimed at ending racial discrimination in employment, education and public accommodations, and succeeded in gaining passage in July 1964. The dismissal of two leading officials further added to the picture of an organization in deep crisis. A controversial figure, Chavis was ousted eighteen months later by the same board that had hired him. Three years later strained finances forced the organization to drastically cut its staff, from 250 in 1992 to just fifty. On a gospel talk radio show on station KHVN, Alcorn stated, "If we get a Jew person, then what I'm wondering is, I mean, what is this movement for, you know?
Bush (president from 2001–2009) declined an invitation to speak to its national convention.[31] The White House originally said the president had a schedule conflict with the NAACP convention,[32] slated for July 10–15, 2004.

The report focuses on dozens of projects conducted as part of the program Assessment in Action: Academic Libraries and Student Success (AiA) by teams that participated in the second year of the program, from April 2014 to June 2015. Information literacy initiatives for freshmen and new students underscore that students receiving this instruction perform better in their courses than students who do not. Libraries improve their institution’s general education outcomes and demonstrate that information literacy contributes to inquiry-based and problem-solving learning, including critical thinking, ethical reasoning, global understanding, and civic engagement. Each participating institution establishes a team with a lead librarian and at least two colleagues from other campus units.
Kara Malenfant, contributor to the report and a senior staff member at ACRL, noted, “The benefits of having diverse team members working together are clear.

The 'Legal' department focuses on court cases of broad application to minorities, such as systematic discrimination in employment, government, or education. Through the early 1900s, legislatures dominated by white Democrats ratified new constitutions and laws creating barriers to voter registration and more complex election rules.
Mary White Ovington, journalist William English Walling and Henry Moskowitz met in New York City in January 1909 and the NAACP was born.[14] Solicitations for support went out to more than 60 prominent Americans, and a meeting date was set for February 12, 1909. It did not elect a black president until 1975, although executive directors had been African-American. Storey consistently and aggressively championed civil rights, not only for blacks but also for Native Americans and immigrants (he opposed immigration restrictions).
Six hundred African-American officers were commissioned and 700,000 men registered for the draft. United States (1915) to Oklahoma's discriminatory grandfather clause that disfranchised most black citizens while exempting many whites from certain voter registration requirements. The NAACP regularly displayed a black flag stating "A Man Was Lynched Yesterday" from the window of its offices in New York to mark each lynching. The NAACP lost most of the internecine battles with the Communist Party and International Labor Defense over the control of those cases and the strategy to be pursued in that case. Since southern states were dominated by the Democrats, the primaries were the only competitive contests. Intimidated by the Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service, the Legal and Educational Defense Fund, Inc., became a separate legal entity in 1957, although it was clear that it was to operate in accordance with NAACP policy. He followed that with passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which provided for protection of the franchise, with a role for federal oversight and administrators in places where voter turnout was historically low. Benjamin Hooks, a lawyer and clergyman, was elected as the NAACP's executive director in 1977, after the retirement of Roy Wilkins. They accused him of using NAACP funds for an out-of-court settlement in a sexual harassment lawsuit.[26] Following the dismissal of Chavis, Myrlie Evers-Williams narrowly defeated NAACP chairperson William Gibson for president in 1995, after Gibson was accused of overspending and mismanagement of the organization's funds.

Jackson said he strongly supported Lieberman's addition to the Democratic ticket, saying, "When we live our faith, we live under the law. On July 10, 2004, however, Bush's spokesperson said that Bush had declined the invitation to speak to the NAACP because of harsh statements about him by its leaders.[32] In an interview, Bush said, "I would describe my relationship with the current leadership as basically nonexistent. Most notably he boycotted the 2004 funeral services for Coretta Scott King on the grounds that the King children had chosen an anti-gay megachurch.

Libraries are helping to drive this change by supporting and hosting open journals, and the result of this conversation—and the potential transition to an Open Access system—will have serious implications for both the library and research communities. Most importantly, the forum will address the impact of this transition on libraries and what roles exist for libraries to influence the conversation and its outcomes. The target audience for the workshops is academic librarians with responsibilities related to coordinating and teaching in the areas of scholarly communication and information literacy. ACRL has formed a small review team, separate from the current presenters, to consider applications and conduct telephone interviews.

Nayar, published in the Journal of Contemporary Thought (Summer 2010), by way of a discussion with Dr. ACRL seeks to expand our pool of presenters by recruiting experienced individuals to join our existing team.
Presenters must be able to participate in a training session, currently being created, for presenters of all ACRL professional development licensed workshops. The group will select new presenters for 2016-2017 and notify all applicants by Friday, June 17, 2016.

Her TED talk, “Why It’s Time to Forget the Pecking Order at Work” is the 20 minute introduction. It also means creating a library organization that allows and encourages people to do good work. Along the way, I have been fortunate to be able to have many exceptional colleagues and to make some small contributions.
Ford of the University of Illinois’ Mortenson Center, this quarterly feature will focus on providing a global perspective on academic and research library issues.
The novel is set in the 1970s but many of themes, especially diversity, are still very relevant today.
Yet, my involvement with ACRL has eased the transition from graduate student to information professional. Through ACRL, I found a great mentor, I have participated in meaningful and knowledgeable discussions, and I feel that I am part of an innovating organization.


Since my position tends to be very narrowly focused, I make a great effort to be involved in the larger library environment and ensure that I am engaging with my fellow colleagues. Chicago: Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of the American Library Association, 2015. I look forward to seeing the accomplishments surrounding the newly approved strategic goal area, New Roles and Changing Landscapes. Over a 14-month period, the librarians lead their campus teams in the development and implementation of a project that aims to contribute to assessment activities at their institution. I know some people don’t love his writing, but this book changed the course of my life; it inspired me to become a librarian.
Librarians have an opportunity to stand in that role as the person who cares, who inspires a student to stay. So I consider it my role, my calling, to do everything I can think of to make the library and the university a better place to live, work, and learn. The term will expire at the conclusion of the 2019 ALA Annual Conference in Washington, DC. They not only need to meet fundamental business targets, but must be dynamic problem solvers who know how to roll with (constant) change.Leadership and management skills really matter - and this includes mindsets, behaviours, values and the ability to reflect, change and grow. Men who had been voting for thirty years in the South were told they did not "qualify" to register.
Walling, social worker Mary White Ovington, and social worker Henry Moskowitz, then Associate Leader of the New York Society for Ethical Culture. While the meeting did not take place until three months later, this date is often cited as the founding date of the organization. Jewish historian Howard Sachar writes in his book A History of Jews in America of how, "In 1914, Professor Emeritus Joel Spingarn of Columbia University became chairman of the NAACP and recruited for its board such Jewish leaders as Jacob Schiff, Jacob Billikopf, and Rabbi Stephen Wise."[19] Early Jewish-American co-founders included Julius Rosenwald, Lillian Wald, Rabbi Emil G. Warley in 1917 that state and local governments cannot officially segregate African Americans into separate residential districts.
White published his report on the riot in the Chicago Daily News.[23] The NAACP organized the appeals for twelve black men sentenced to death a month later based on the fact that testimony used in their convictions was obtained by beatings and electric shocks.
This was designed to protest segregation on the city's buses, two-thirds of whose riders were black. 449 (1958), the NAACP lost its leadership role in the Civil Rights Movement while it was barred from Alabama. Committing to the Youth Council may reward young people with travel opportunities or scholarships. At the same time, he began graduate studies at Duquesne University where he earned a master’s degree in education administration in 1982. ACRL will reimburse the presenters for travel costs for workshop presentation to include flights, hotel, ground transportation, and per diem for meals. This is a great opportunity to share and hone your specialized expertise while contributing to the development of the subject literature for more general collections.
I was at the first ACRL conference in Boston, though all I remember about it now is that Kurt Vonnegut spoke and there was a great party at Boston Public. Get your copy of this book, full of case studies and examples of innovative strategies to encourage library use and academic success among international students, today! The story reminds us of the importance of protecting intellectual discourse, of questioning the world and society around us, and most of all, of encouraging others to do the same. As an academic librarian, I am part of an organization that exists to enable the students to succeed. Perhaps that improvement is something major, like championing the implementation of a new mentoring program for library faculty or participating in drafting a new strategic plan, or maybe it’s something minor, like guiding a student at the reference desk to articles about the depiction of the Indian caste system in Bollywood films. They must have a working knowledge of investment opportunities available to the endowment and other long-term investment funds, and of benchmarks used to judge fund performance. It provides L&D teams with the perfect chance to step back and think about what has led to current organisational successes, before sharing those stories and successes.There is nothing more satisfying at work than thinking over your recent activities and realising that there is a lot to be proud of! We'll be digging into Towards Maturity's data to see what it tell us about changes in onboarding practice, as well as picking out some practical ideas that could inspire change in your own organisation. Seek, support and develop leaders right and you'll have more engaged, productive, and profitable businesses. Top performing L&D teams are 3-5 times more likely to be delivering improved productivity and agility today and have much to teach us. I have had the pleasure of working with them and their customers for a number of years and have seen first hand their commitment to identifying and sharing great practices that really work.
The goal of the Health Division is to advance health care for minorities through public policy initiatives and education.
The Court's opinion reflected the jurisprudence of property rights and freedom of contract as embodied in the earlier precedent it established in Lochner v.
Over the next ten years, the NAACP escalated its lobbying and litigation efforts, becoming internationally known for its advocacy of equal rights and equal protection for the "American Negro". Although states had to retract legislation related to the white primaries, the legislatures soon came up with new methods to limit the franchise for blacks. He served in the role of adjunct spiritual director at Saint Paul Seminary from 1984 through 1991 and associate spiritual director at Saint Vincent Seminary, Latrobe, from 1989 through 1996.
Ed has donated much of his private research collection to my library, including his own work on utopian literature, and noted that Nayar referenced my own 2006 book, The Information Commons Handbook, in this article.
The candidates must also have experience in the management or oversight of investment funds in a business setting and must be able to contribute to the preparation of semi-annual reports on the performance of the fund to the ALA Executive Board and Council.
This assessment differs from personality assessments as it is not intended to label a person and have them work well within that label.
So it's no wonder that companies spent nearly $31 billion on leadership programs last year. It provides contemporary measures that focus on performance improvement and great tactics that help L&D teams become more responsive to the changing needs of business.
This research highlights the fact that L&D teams must develop new mind-sets and skills, quickly. In the 21st century, I think it is important for LIS literature to reach an academic audience across disciplines, and I am delighted that my books and articles have been cited over a thousand times, including references in research articles by cognitive psychologists, anthropologists, historians, and contemporary philosophers, such as Pramod K.

Instead, it measures your level of energy based on your attitude, or perception and perspective of your world. Benchmarking can help you get started on your way to winning and help you clarify what's been successful - here are 6 perfectly valid reasons to use it.How benchmarking can helpWe are not promising that benchmarking will definitely lead to trophies in the cabinet.
It leverages the data of its in-depth Benchmark Study, the largest learning technology benchmark in Europe.
We must practice what we preach and use that learning to help others learn how to learn.The ability to keep learning and keep applying new learning is essential in order to survive in this current agile business landscape. 86 (1923) that significantly expanded the Federal courts' oversight of the states' criminal justice systems in the years to come. It is good for ACRL to set an example for how a professional organization can embrace open access. Secondly, the scale of the work ahead, as 95% of respondents want to improve induction with only 39% meeting that goal. Also, just 23% agree that their L&D teams have the skills to use technology for business advantage. These are tried and tested approaches that we've used in partnership with our clients to produce effective and award-winning learning interventions that deliver impactful change.1. With such a big gap between aspiration and performance, the induction challenge seems daunting but there is evidence that learning innovation is turning the tide.
Here are six compelling reasons why benchmarking can help turn the possibility of being an award winner into a reality:1.
These aren't the only source of future leaders, of course, as many other potentials are already in-house, out there to be recruited or returning to work after having children.
The Towards Maturity benchmarking process gets organisations, and L&D in particular, thinking on the right track.
Incredibly, ‘Top Deckers' are 50 times more likely than the lowest performers to improve talent strategies to keep their best people. However, the world of work is changing and organisations are increasingly looking for more modern approaches to learning that support the fast-moving world of work and the needs of an increasingly digital workforce. The vast majority we talked with were frustrated by the lack of transfer back to the job after managers had participated in training. It’s a great place to start, if you want to establish a strong foundation for change.
Work with the subject matter expert or the business customer to identify the main objective of the programme. Using real life ideas can help inspire new approaches that will make a difference in your own situation.
This will not only help you design the programme, but will also help you measure its effectiveness. It's very easy in today's busy world to not make time for reflection, yet reflection is critical to success.
Inspiration by example We've identified four techniques used by organisations in their induction programmes that relate to the tactics of the top performing organisations highlight in the Towards Maturity Industry Benchmark Report.
First, it seems there's a lack of measures put in place for management and leadership training. The purpose of the Show is to inform and inspire L&D professionals to improve not just their personal performance but that of their organisation.
They are three times more likely to use benchmarking as a performance improvement tool - benchmarking against the tactics that improve performance.
By benchmarking you enable yourself to reflect, take stock and focus on the activities that really make a difference.2. While every organisation is different, examples of good practice and innovation in other companies can offer inspiration for change. Secondly, it seems that the learning strategy many apply to management and leadership training is often out of sync with the audience's needs. By reflecting on and analysing organisational performance, activities and practices, L&D can identify organisational strengths and areas of high performance. The leading sports retailer has been providing online onboarding since 2013 with more than 25,000 employees, across the 19 countries going through the programme.
Data from Towards Maturity reveals that 83% of new starters like to learn at their own pace, with 44% using their own mobile to learn.With this in mind, Sports Direct used the Adapt multi-device responsive elearning framework for its online content. Receive your Personalised Benchmark report analysing current performance and tailored action plans valued at £300 - free until 15 July.
Just as importantly, benchmarking identifies weaknesses and those areas of low performance. It means employees can access the elearning on a smartphone or tablet, giving them maximum flexibility. You can read more about Sports Direct's approach to induction in Inside Learning Technologies & Skills magazine. Only 39% offer mobile content, and 30% have no plans to implement social media for leadership development. It's no wonder then, that there is a lack of transfer from learning to doing, if the learning doesn't fit in with everyday lives and habits in the first place and isn't focused on supporting performance there and then. Towards Maturity data reveals that 87% of Top Deck organisations agree that top managers are involved in promoting learning, compared with an average of 37%.UK infrastructure company, Story Contracting features a video message from the company owner and Chief Executive, Fred Story in its new online induction. This isn't to say there aren't some great examples of modern, blended, performance-focused leadership development - there are some cited in Towards Maturity's paper. The not for profit organisation champions better work and working lives and has been setting the benchmark for excellence in people and organisation development for more than 100 years.
Pinpointing strengths and weaknesses enables L&D and business leaders to really hone in on performance.
What can we learn from these?How leadership solutions can #makeithappenIt's time to close the gaps and deliver the type of learning solutions that will engage and really help leaders.
Reinvent the InterventionIn the ‘Aim for Action' step you established a reason for implementing your learning programme. To really help them, we need to offer easy to find performance support that is genuinely useful and relevant to leaders and managers' points of need. Benchmarking does what it says: it provides organisations with a benchmark to measure themselves against others.
New staff and partners joining Specsavers are able to earn a virtual coin by completing the company's new induction course. You can use it to see how you are performing on various aspects of organisational practice compared to others. The business then makes a real cash donation to the charity chosen by employees in proportion to the number of virtual coins earned.You can read more about the Specsavers' approach here. But we also need to help develop those deeper skills and behaviours in ways that fit with leader's (crazy) lifestyles.
For example, have you properly embraced mobile learning and are reaping the kinds of benefits that some organisations are enjoying? As a baseline, that means moving away from solely ‘event' based learning - three-day workshops or long online courses - and embracing more resource or micro-learning approaches that provide short challenges and tasks as nuggets that help build skills and insights over time. Will that raise awareness, instil attitudes and change actions?One way to fuel creativity for your blended learning project is to ask, "How would an advertising executive tackle this problem of awareness, attitude or action? What are the top performing companies in the Towards Maturity benchmark doing in terms of mobile learning?
An average of 48% of Benchmark respondents reported that elearning not being tailored sufficiently was a barrier to success. We would say that providing simulations, interactive videos and meaningful games can make smart use of a leaders' precious time, and build the competence and confidence leadership roles require - so ROI for L&D too. How would they get people to change?" Advertising agencies live or die by their ability to drive behaviour change. It can be really useful to know what characteristics top performing companies have in common and what is driving their success.5. United Biscuits (UB), the company behind household names such as McVitie's, Jaffa Cakes and Penguin, wanted to make sure its induction programme was relevant to both new starters and any existing employees who might access the training. UB used video of real employees talking about their jobs to add relevance and authenticity to the content.You can read more about the experience at United Biscuits in HR Grapevine magazine. Supporting or providing social spaces for informal learning and sharing is key too - the how will depend on who your audience is and how they currently work together.Measurement comes into play here as you have managers, teams, and peers providing tailored feedback about performance and application. This report gives clear, insightful indicators about your strategy's current strengths and how that compares to your peers.
But leadership and management development is often holistic, and ongoing - like a journey rather than a series of interventions. The aim is to help L&D professionals focus on one area of action that will help them deliver impact.
To track what tools, learning, and performance support is used by an individual is a bit of a red-herring - especially if you're genuinely offering it up to help them in anyway that works for them. And, if improving induction is your focus, there are more ideas in Sponge UK's Rough Guide to Induction.
There has to be some bigger, business goals to be measured, alongside the individuals' performance or growth targets, and it might take a little while for the data to come in for these.
Louise PasterfieldManaging Director, Sponge UK Louise has more than 20 years' experience in learning and design and is passionate about making elearning absorbing so staff can apply what they have learned immediately into the workplace.Her interest is in how best to harness technology so people can learn, grow and make a difference to their organisations.
Why not make use of the employee newsletter, write a speech for the CEO, prepare cascade toolkits for managers or shoot a video for the Intranet?Now that you have a list of the possible channels for reaching your audiences, take some time to think about your different audiences. In terms of those millennials as future leaders - don't leave it too late before you start developing them.
For each unique audience group, consider how you want to change awareness, attitude or action. In Deloitte's report on this generation, Not only is this generation notoriously flighty and ready to up and leave within two years, but 70% of those ready to jump ship cite lack of leadership training as the reason why.
Now consider what the best method is for affecting this change.In the final step, you'll need to organise the mix into a co-ordinated campaign.
Campaign for Change When delivering positive, lasting change there are no ‘silver bullets'. Just think about how that Personalised Benchmark Report will help you deliver better results.Unsure if you are ready?Benchmarking will help you make up your mind if you should enter an award this year or wait until next year when you have had a chance to build further on current successes. So to attract and retain talent, and build leaders of tomorrow, open up those digital, multi-device resources -  simulations, diagnostics, videos, podcasts, tools and more to anyone who's interested. If your organisation wants to meet the aim, you'll need to campaign for change!A campaign is a set of interlocking, co-ordinated activities using different media and different channels to achieve a shared objective.If your aim is important, it's time to take the fresh interventions you listed and put together a time-phased and audience-specific campaign.
They use multiple channels over a period of time to change your awareness, attitude and activity. As you plan your time-phased, audience-specific communications, start with your aim and work from there.
If your organisation wants to meet the aim, you'll need to campaign for change!Think about how you can design your communication plan. Tweak one or two elements or add an extra ingredient into the mix.Finally, communicate your results within the business.
