Learning is the Key to Successful Capital Formation

“Learning is the human capital accelerant of the enterprise,” writes Michael E. Echols, Vice-President of strategic initiatives at Bellevue University, in the April 2016 issue of CLOmedia.com. According to Echols, a significant segment of the country’s corporate culture believes that human capital formation only includes the process of training or developing new employees. Echols contends that if recruitment and retention were added to the quotient, the country wouldn’t have such a large gap between job applicants’ skills and unfilled positions. Echols is referring to the U.S. Labor Department statistic of 5.6 million unfilled jobs at the end of December 2015. This gap reveals a serious problem in aligning job applicants’ skills with company employment needs—and here’s where learning skills comes into play, says Echols. In the past, the major reason for the gap could be traced to the scarcity of job applicants with advanced technical skills. This appears to be no longer the case. According to Burning Glass Technologies, a company which describes itself as “Developing the World’s Leading Technologies for Matching People with Jobs,” employers report a need for “soft or baseline skills”—writing, communication, problem-solving and organization.[1] This current job alignment gap provides an excellent opportunity for learning leaders [...]

Confident Kitty Cat Coaches Pups on how to Become Service Dogs

Ever imagine that your furry feline friend could teach a class? Well the friendly staff at Support Dogs, Inc. in St. Louis, Missouri, apparently did!  Support Dogs, Inc. is a national not-for-profit organization that has taken to utilizing an unlikely tutor in teaching their cadets in training.  It’s very important that service dogs aren’t distracted while guiding individuals with disabilities such as those with mobility problems or people who are deaf. What better way to desensitize the cadets than to distract them with a fluff-ball of a cat named D-O-G (Dee-Oh-Jee)? This black and white fur-ball is employed by Support Dogs, Inc. in order to help their service animals become acclimated to diverse surroundings, including being around animals. D-O-G teaches the service animals patience and conditions them to become comfortable around other animals. D-O-G is a bold little mouser who does not hesitate to tussle with service dogs’ leashes or even their tails, only to drink and eat out of their bowls afterword! All of this helps the service dogs become more familiarized to dynamic environments, potentially including being around multiple animals, and in turn provide better support for their owners. The Grand Poobox makes life easier for cat owners [...]

Learning Is an Ongoing Journey – Especially for Learning Professionals

Learning is an ongoing journey with a destination of constant improvement. In the workplace, Lean rules and principles are structured on the pursuit of learning that is shared, recorded and transmitted to every member of the organization. In an August 19, 2016 informal interview at the University of Stellenbosch Business School in South Africa, Adv. Kevin Malunga, Public Protector of South Africa, refers to his own learning journey as “a work in progress” and states that “he is still learning from what he does every day.”[1] In the interview, Adv. Malunga provides a number of important observations that he’s learned along the way: Integrity always wins no matter what comes in your way or is thrown at you. Progress is a process of trial and error. It is a situation of some you win and some you lose, but you keep on walking. Teamwork is important and comes from the ability to motivate and galvanise people into a team. Learn from mistakes and the mistakes of others. Embrace diversity. Differences can be a source of strength (and weakness) whether it is racial, cultural or religious. South Africa is still struggling with this, but should realise that we can learn a [...]

Learning Professionals Must Be Learners

Learning is a Lifetime Pursuit for All Professionals Any professional who considers learning a lifetime pursuit will never be left behind in today’s highly competitive marketplace. This certainly holds true for learning professionals. In today’s Information Age, no one can afford to retire their brains and ingenuity if they want to stay current with their profession. The fact is, whatever you learned last year or even a few weeks ago, is already outdated. If you are employed by a forward-looking company or organization that practices Kaizen or constant improvement, refresher courses and advanced seminars are regular events requiring mandatory attendance. For Lean organizations, the learning process is an ongoing journey or adventure of discovery whose destination is constant improvement. Along the road are oases or refresher stops—seminars and workshops where shared learning takes place, or where management and staff take time to reflect on what they’ve learned. In an excellent article that appeared in the November 8, 2016 issue of Chief Learning Officer, titled “Learning Professionals Must Be Learners,” author Elliott Masie writes, “Imagine eating in a restaurant where the chef never tastes the food. Risky, right? We want our cooks to adjust, tweak and improve the cooking experience by [...]

Complex Treatment Planning

We can help you gain patient acceptance for complex treatment plans. Treatment planning for diseased teeth is a complex endeavor. Thorough dental history of the patient, clinical testing, and radiographic examination are all required to make an accurate diagnosis prior to treatment planning. The process that follows in choosing the best path for treatment is exhaustive and meticulous, and is benefited by the expertise of an endodontist. By partnering with an endodontist, dental practices can ease their workload and reassure patients that their oral health is the most important thing. The Treatment Planning Process When creating a treatment plan for a tooth affected by post-treatment disease, endodontists essentially have four avenues to consider: do nothing, extraction, non-surgical retreatment, and surgical treatment. Doing nothing is generally not the best choice because by avoiding the problem, the patient is allowing for the progression of disease and further destruction to supporting tissue. Extraction and implantation is a viable option in some cases, but dental implants are rarely equivalent in functionality to the natural tooth and have their own complications. On the other hand, extraction without tooth replacement often causes uncomfortable alterations in the dentition and supporting tissues, as well as possible decrease of [...]
