Blogging with TrainingZone


As Jon mentioned in the Editor's Blog, you may have noticed some changes following TrainingZone’s big upgrade. The most major of these changes is the removal of Discussion Groups. If you previously ran a group, we want to apologise for not making you aware of this sooner. Unfortunately, while we’ve been seeing more and more excellent content from members on the site, groups were very quiet when compared to other areas, especially Any Answers and Blogs.

The NATURAL way to accelerate learning

No child ever learns to walk by sitting through a PowerPoint presentation or by reading a book and yet we sometimes limit our learners by limiting the methods we use in training. My interest in accelerated learning and neuroscience has led me to change the way I train over the years.

From my early years as an IT trainer in the nineties to the present day, as a trainer of trainers, I have tried a variety of ways to make my training both memorable and impactful.

Conflict at Work


There are different types of conflict at work.  There’s the Personality Clash type of conflict – you just don’t get on with everyone; there’s one particular person who rubs you up the wrong way and inevitably you have the occasional quarrel and even a blow-out every once in a while.


Another type of conflict is when you fundamentally disagree with what another person is doing and you might call that a Values Clash.  


Evaluating Engagement

Is employee engagement worth it?  It’s a simple enough question and the answer is unquestionably yes!  We could stop there and make this one of the shortest articles ever to grace the pages of Training Zone but for those who may have concerns that employee engagement is a fluffy nice to have rather than a business imperative, perhaps we better expand a little.

Let’s start then with a few quotes gleaned at random from the internet.
