first_imgIncreasingresponsibility for T&D rests with line managers, but how much time do theyput into it and how effective is their involvement? Sue Clark asks across-section of organisations for their experiencesGaryMilesProgramme director, Roffey Park Management InstituteOursurvey of 180 line managers and team members in 1999 showed that the majorityrecognise development as an effective way to improve performance, increasemotivation or bring about change.Thekey types of development interventions most commonly used are coaching,feedback, counselling, on-the-job training, mentoring, help with the selectionof courses, work shadowing and arranging visits to other organisations.However,the survey revealed that nearly 30 per cent of line managers spend less thaneight hours a month developing others, while 47 per cent spend between eightand 16 hours on development.Timewas cited as a major barrier to effective coaching and development, whilefeedback was hampered if the culture in the organisation did not encourageopenness.Therewas also a mixed response to the idea of reward for developing people. Some seedeveloping others as a normal part of their job while others believe theyshould get a financial reward linked to team performance.Evaluatingthe development of others also appears to be a significant challenge and linemanagers clearly need more help with this.GlendaMartinTraining and development manager, Boots the Chemist, IrelandI’mnot surprised by the figures from Roffey Park, but you have to focus on theother aspects of development beyond the recognised training and developmentthat goes on between the individual and his or her line manager.AtBoots development is one of the key elements of their job, but it is often doneindirectly, for example by facilitating learning through buddy systems whereindividuals meet with their peers and share information. The line managers willset these groups up and monitor them but they won’t actually take part.Moredirectly, line managers provide coaching and leadership, and they cascadelearning down.Theyare also part of projects and working parties where groups will co-operate toachieve a goal. Developmentactivities are sandwiched between pre and post briefings that focus on how totransfer any learning back into the work place.Theirrole in training and development is crucial to the organisation.ChrisJefferiesHead of training, First QuenchThereis a danger where a training and development function exists within anorganisation that line managers, consciously or not, will not view T&D aspart of their job, especially when they have other priorities.Weemphasise the role of our line managers’ involvement in development byequipping them with coaching skills. Thenwe have a process whereby the line managers become self-sufficient. Theyidentify any training need and then solve it from their own resources.Anindividual from the team will provide the expertise to develop others, theT&D function equips them with the skills.Forexample we have been running a cascade programme where an evangelist or coachis chosen from each training event to pass on the skills to the next group. Itstarted at board level and is working its way to our 20,000 staff who are basedat 2,500 retail units around the UK.Itis a bit of a trade off, a compromise on quality. But we need to deliver agreat deal to many people rather than a little to a few.Trainingin our organisation is like fishing: we teach our people how to do it, ratherthan give them the fish.MikeSpillerGroup personnel and training director, Granada Food ServicesLinemanagers play an important role in training and development within ourorganisation as we believe it is the most effective way to improve performance andmotivation. It is sufficiently important to be included in the job descriptionsof all line managers.Professionaltrainers instruct managers on how to train, and they have developed modules andmaterials which enable the line managers to conduct the training with theirteams.Andas we promote training as a line responsibility, our trainers report to themanaging directors, thereby ensuring the training of line managers and that oftheir teams is focused on the needs of the business, individuals and teams.Wealso encourage line managers’ own development using internal and externalsources.Ifa line manager is being developed then it is more likely they will beencouraged to develop their own staff.However,training only becomes really effective when it is owned by line managers and islinked to business, individual and group needs.KirstenBarclayHuman resources manager, Welsh Development AgencyManytraining and development experts believe that individual training needs arebest identified jointly by the line manager and individual team member.Butif the individual and manager are best placed to identify individual trainingneeds, does it necessarily follow that they are best placed to identify themost appropriate means of addressing the need?Managersand their teams are often not aware of the different ways that learning canoccur and inevitably fall back upon the trainer-led course, neglecting otherlearning methodologies such as project work, CBT, professional networks, eventhe precursor of much CBT – directed reading!Nonetheless,devolving HR to the line means that managers increasingly have a role inidentifying and addressing training needs in their teams.Theinevitable next step is devolving some if not all of the training budget toline managers for their local level training.Ideallymanagers will then have an explicit objective in their annual appraisal –developing team members.

first_img(AP) It’s now official—NBA legends Gary Payton and Bernard King will enter the hall this September. Here is an official rundown of the class.•Gary Payton: A lock-down defender who is one of the greatest point guards of his generation, a nine-time All-Star, NBA Defensive Player of the Year, two-time gold medalist and the face of Seattle Sonics basketball. He has an NBA championship as well (Miami 2006).“When I started playing basketball and got in the NBA I just wanted to be a guy in the NBA doing something,” Payton said in a televised interview on a stage in Atlanta with the other inductees. “But even as my career went on and started getting better and better I still never thought about being in the Hall of Fame.“When I think about it, I don’t even feel like I’m here now. It’s such a dream.”•Bernard King: The Knicks swingman was one of the greatest pure scorers of all time. He averaged 22.5 points per game during a 15-year career and had some monster playoff runs, like 1984 when he averaged 34.8 points per game. This was long overdue, glad to see it happen.“I’d like to say this was a dream, but you can’t dream of something like this,” Kings said from the Hall of Fame stage.•Richie Guerin: A native New Yorker who played for the Knicks, is a six-time All-Star guard known for his feisty style of play.•Roger Brown: One of the great players of the ABA all time, a four time All-Star in that league.•Oscar Schmidt: The Brazilian legend should already have been in, he is a five-time Olympian who remains the only player with more than 1,000 points in the Olympics.•Russ Granik: David Stern’s former right hand man for years. Helped clear way for NBA players to be in Olympics.•Also in are Rick Pitino (college coaching legend), Jerry Tarkanian (college coaching legend), Dawn Staley (WNBA legend, three time gold medalist), Sylvia Hatchell (North Caronia’s women’s college coach), Guy Lewis (University of Houston college coach including the Phi Slama Jama years), and George Raveling, the longtime college coach enters on a lifetime achievement award.

first_imgNewly re-elected Donegal County Councillor Albert Doherty has called for the appropriate authorities to outline a plan for the ‘urgent repair work’ that is required at the Barrack Hill play park in Carndonagh. The Sinn Fein Councillor said it was now time for the Donegal County Council to undertake an immediate audit on the site to ensure the safety of parents and their children coming up to the summer holidays.Speaking to Donegal Daily, Cllr Doherty said: “The Barrack Hill play park has a powerful potential to deliver for the local area and over the course of the election and in the past grave concern has been raised about the safety of the play park and the condition that it is in currently. “I have asked and written to Donegal County Council and have called for the immediate maintenance and repairs that are required on the site,” he added.“It is now time for the authorities to sanction funding and proper investment for the Barrack Hill play park.”Doherty added that the main roadway to the play park was ‘far from inviting to family and children’ and was ‘unwelcoming’ for those who wished to pay their respects at the local graveyard nearby.He continued: “The area is also an entrance avenue for those who wish to pay their respects to their loved ones at the nearby graveyard and it is unwelcoming at present and I have outlined this to the council and there is an urgent need for significant snag list of repairs to be carried out. “We have the potential to make it a safe facility and make it an attractive invite to those who wish to use it.“I think as we approach the holiday season we will see more families looking to use the area and the priority must be for use to make the area safe for them and that is why maintenance must be carried out as soon as possible.”Immediate repairs needed for Barrack Hill play park – Cllr Doherty was last modified: June 5th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Carndonaghlast_img read more

first_imgWho takes the action is as important as the action being taken.Two people can both call on the same prospective client. One of them can have deep business acumen and situational knowledge, while the other lacks both of these. The results will be as different as you might imagine, with one succeeding, and the other failing. It’s important that you be someone who knows how to create value and make a difference.Two salespeople can both have a face-to-face sales call with that same dream client. One of them is an exceptionally good listener, is prepared, and has carefully crafted questions that will help them and their prospect discover things together. The other is winging it, hoping to make a connection. The professional always outperforms the amateur.Two different people both want success. One is an optimistic, abundance-minded person who believes that opportunity is limitless. This person believes that their success is going to take hard work and dedication, but that that success is inevitable. The other person is a scarcity-minded person who waits for luck to find them and bestow upon them her riches. Your attitude and your belief systems are your operating system. It can’t be full of viruses.Actions alone doesn’t always dictate the results. The reason some people produce better results is that they have done the work to become someone who can generate those better results. They worked harder and longer than others were willing to so they could become a person who can produce the results you see, even though you didn’t see the years of work they put into chipping away at the parts that weren’t the best version of themselves.Who you are counts for more than what you do. You have to be someone worth buying from, someone worth doing business with, someone who acts a positive force. Character counts for far more than any tactics, tricks, or hacks you might be tempted to employ to produce better results faster. Get the Free eBook! Learn how to sell without a sales manager.

first_imgKlopp deflects agent comments on Liverpool exit: It was German humour!by Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveJurgen Klopp has brushed off comments from his agent saying he could leave Liverpool because of the weather.The Liverpool manager’s agent Marc Kosicke suggested in a recent interview that Klopp could be tempted to switch Merseyside for a hotter destination.Speaking on the eve of Liverpool’s Champions League opener against Napoli, Klopp said: “There is nothing in that story.”He wanted to make a joke so now I have to be serious.”It is German humour but obviously nobody got it…I am completely fine with the weather.”Let me spell it out, the weather has never been a reason for me to choose a city and it’s certainly not a reason for me to leave the country.”Maybe at the moment (in England) it’s the most healthy weather in the world – we have enough rain, it’s cool, pretty much the opposite of this room!”There’s nothing in that story. He’s my agent and my friend.”When I speak about the weather it was about the wind which can have an effect on football, but that is not allowed in England. But that is not to a reason leave the country. I am fine.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_img‘Rest in Peace’ is a term much in popular use and is sighted characteristically on the social media portals. Whenever a known person departs for their heavenly abode, members of a particular social media group immediately take to expressing sorrow and grief and quote “RIP”. Thi has actually become a social ritual. But the person for whom this ‘RIP’ is being used has no effect from such expressions. One fails to understand what the actual usage of such expression is. Then why it is being used at all? The mind seeks an answer to this logical question. Also Read – A special kind of bondTo understand this aspect a little more in depth, one needs to understand the basics of the Sanatham Dharma which is largely in practice by the majority of people in this country. It is believed that there is only one great soul which is referred to as the “Paramatma”, the God, the Father. Each and every living creature is part of this God and ‘Atma’ present in each human and other living creatures are always eager to get attached to the ‘Parmatma’, whenever it leaves the physical form. The body is like the clothing which one keeps changing and the ‘Atma’ never dies, it never ceases to exist. Hindus and some other believers across the world subscribe to the notion of rebirth and reincarnation. At the end of one’s physical life graph, the balance sheet of the good and bad deeds decide the fate and the course of the next birth. More good deeds clocked by one during their lifetime means a better life in the following rebirth. It is directly proportional to the quality of the next life. It is the effect of ‘Karma’. Human life is the supreme one among all living beings. The ultimate ‘Moksha’ can only be attained through human life. ‘Moksha’ refers to the end of the life cycle when the soul is permanently attached to Parmatama and finally merges it with. There is no reversal here, no rebirth that one must undertake after the Moksha is attained. India is a land of Rishis, Munis, and Sadhus and noble souls always thriving to attain Moksha. Kaliyug (the age we are living in today) makes room for some dilution of the spiritual values. Nevertheless, spiritually elated people in each and every city, town, and villages of India are constantly seeking the ultimate Moksha and leading a simple and spiritually rich life towards achieving the main aim to attain Moksha by means of ‘Tapasya’. Also Read – Insider threat management”Hinduism” is arguably the oldest socio-religious way and dictum to lead life. It is rather a way of life more than a religion and is followed by Christianity and Islam. Unlike Hinduism where after death, the body the dead is burned, in Christianity and Islam, it is buried. In Hinduism, it is believed that as soon as the heart stops, the soul or the “Atma” leaves the body and gets attached to the ‘Parmatma’ or God. In Christianity and Islam, a person’s dead body is buried and both these faiths don’t believe in rebirth. Thus, the ‘Rest In Piece’ concept evolved with burial practiced in Christianity and Islam. Adaptation and exchange of good values across faiths and religious systems will improve the quality of life and enrich it. At the same time, it is to be remembered that such an exchange should not dilute or erase one’s own values or hurt one’s faith which should not be overshadowed by such adaptations. So, RIP all faiths and religions without blurring the basic tenets of one another! (The writer is a senior Veteran Officer of IAF, and former Additional Director General, Prasar Bharti.
