A most amazing source of information in leadership! I am a full time graduate student studying health administration. I have a nursing background. I found this site while writing a short essay for an HR course! Fabulous content and I recommended your website it to my peers.
Of course I cited you, naturally, its drilled into our graduate brains 🙂
Don, thank you for my free education for the past 10 years. A colleague put me on your web page and I never looked back. The information game me the tools to advance from an employment counselor to the Human Resources Manager of Yamaha Motor Corporation, Marine Division.
I was downsized last year middle management is becoming an endangered species. So I am back to upgrade my skills and learn more from you, I see you have not stopped learning and evolving.
thank you for sharing information on leadership development. i am currently the employment counselor of my company and it sure helped me a lot in sharing some insights to my employees. however, some sections on your leadership development especially the motivation and character topics cannot be viewed because the compression is unsupported or invalid. can you please check it. thank you.
I cannot find any errors in them. I don’t use “compression” in any of my pages, so I’m not sure why you are getting the error messages. Note that both of the pages are set up the same way the other pages are, thus I’m not sure why you can load some of the pages but not others.
The Motivation page does have a YouTube video inserted in it, but that does not explain why the other page will not load.
Thanks for all of your excellent resources related to learning and performance. I’m looking for data about the percentage of performance problems that can be solved by training. I’ve read somewhere percentage breakdowns, but am unable to find at this point.
I don’t have the reference, but it was Rummler & Brache who estimated that training accounts for 10 to 20 percent of the potential for changing performance on the job. Of cource this can vary widely from organization to organization.
I was just on “Big Dog & Little Dog’s Performance Juxtaposition” on a page called “Leadership Styles” and I saw a graphic called “Power Style” and it brought back a few nice memories. One of my predecessors was sent back to ensure the creator of the graphic actually survived to create it (and obviously the creator did survive to draw it). I wasn’t privy to all the details of her task, for obvious reasons, but I remember her showing me a very similar graphic and her being incredulous about having to go back to make sure it is created. I didn’t know where else to comment about it so thought I would do it here. FYI, me stating I am a time traveller often gets a response so vicious that it gives me a headache, so I am going to leave you with this (because it doesn’t matter), time doesn’t travel in a straight line, that is simply the way we interpret it. Time travel is not invented in the year 2009, it is simply discovered, it is manipulated in the year 2021 and is done without technology. We look back on you chumps in the same way you look back at people in the past for not figuring out gravity. But, since I know you are sceptical, I will give you a piece of disposable evidence: Your fate, or destiny, or whatever you want to call it is controlled by you fully. More fully than you realize. You are not just the driver, you are the road, the engine and the cesium. However, your fate (a terrible choice of word by me) is a very calm water. If you want to change it then you have to make an impact on your own life. We were taught it in physics as putting our finger in a calm pool and causing waves. To prove it, we were told to try and get a reward by any means we see fit. Some kids used a chig (child friendly gambling – translated), others messaged family members, others started a band (seriously), and all of us affected our fate purposefully in the same way we do in our past. Now we have to fix ripples we create ourselves, but it is easy. I am only here to make sure a middle aged woman in a red jacket doesn’t speak to a bunch of RAF lads. Just to be nice, I anymore going to give you a slice of information I remember from this period in time. On the 5th of July, some time today, 2014, the Israel and Hamas will agree a ceasefire in the Gaza conflict. They agree to a temporary cease fire that the Israelis honour despite 7 attacks that are not covered by the western press (after which they launch a sexy counter that I had to write about in college history class).
