Are You Ready for Personalized Learning?

Cornerstone On Demand

When my family moved to Florida eight years ago, we bought a house with a pool. We loved looking outside at night with the pool light on; peaceful and beautiful. But a few months later, the bulb burned out. Rather than call the pool guy, my husband went on YouTube and learned how to replace the bulb. I was a new CLO in a large healthcare system at the time and witnessing him turn to YouTube boggled my mind.

Kicking The Ant Pile

HR Hardball

I think most of us would admit that being a control freak is a frustrating (and ultimately losing) proposition. At work, our ability to “control” things is usually more dependent upon the company cruising on auto-pilot, business as usual, allowing us to have some sense of security in our ability to manage our day. But the reality is that your employer has the same tenuous grasp on control as we do – it’s all situational; it’s an illusion that gives you a false sense of comfort.
