Book Announcement: Answers For Ethical Marketers Published as a Guide to Good Business Communication

When I started my public relations and marketing career journey, I thought ethics and values always entered the equation. Every professional, journalist, and media outlet practiced ethical conduct. Naive, I know!   What I’ve learned quickly, and, in some cases, with a big lesson attached, is that ethics and values are a personal choice and a professional practice. Defining your values and applying your good judgm...

Are You Making This Mistake with Your E-Learning?

A lot of e-learning is compliance-based and often how it has to be delivered is a bit rigid. I’ve heard plenty of examples where some compliance training requires X number of seat hours to certify the completion of the training. This is ridiculous because the seat hours are completely disconnected from whether the learner demonstrates any semblance of understanding. But, like I said, that’s not going to change. And as an e-learning developer, you’re stuck. Outside of compliance training, anothe...

Why There Are So Many Bad E-Learning Courses

Like many organizations, we have to take compliance training. And when I heard we had a 3-hour harassment course coming, my first emotional response wasn’t positive. Why do I shudder thinking of taking a 3-hour e-learning course? We all know why. I hear all the time that e-learning courses are boring. This isn’t 1995. What’s going on? We have conferences that teach us how to build better courses. We have an industry full of experts whose whole existence revolves around pointing out boring e-lea...

Mindfulness Without the Bells and Beads- #MindfulSocial with @mindfulclif

The word “mindfulness” has become a trendy catchphrase these days, and some avoid using the “M” word altogether because it feels woo woo, or icky. The thing is, whatever you wanna call it, I can tell you that these simple techniques work, and. I was intrigued by Clif Smith’s title. Mindfulness without the bells and beads because, like him, I’ve learned a lot about the value of these skills for productivity, and wellbeing, As scientists study the effects of these practices on our brains, and phys...

The E-Learning Course is Done. Now What?

You built an e-learning course and the client is happy. Now what? There’s a lot that happens between getting the course uploaded and then delivered to those who need to consume it. And then after that, what happens next? Here are a few ideas. Implementation Strategy Once a course is built, it needs to be rolled out to its intended audience. Often this part of the course construction is out of the hands of the person who builds the course. However, it’s still a major consideration and many cli...

Book: Generation X

Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture is weekend reading for anyone who wants to understand me and my generation. I was born in 1965 – right at the beginning of the transition from “Boomers” to “Xers.” I’m glad my parents had me in 1965 instead of 1964, where I’d spend my life arguing (maybe with myself) that I’m not a boomer. A millennial friend of mine didn’t know anything about Generation X, so I sent her a copy of the book. I suppose I was teasing her too much about being a mi...
