Editor's note
There have been some fascinating responses to my question about
what makes a great learning and development leader. The ability
to step into the shoes of the learner, in depth knowledge of the
discipline of learning and development and a healthy dose of
political/ business acumen are some of the suggestions so far.
Find out how you measure up to members' ideals or add your own
thoughts on what makes a great L&D leader at:

Trainer's Tip: Performance Targets that Motivate
"Setting performance targets can have a negative effect on the
ability of the workers to achieve them. The workforce perceives
performance targets as the management telling them what they
should be doing. Telling people what to do makes them resist
doing what they have been told, for no other reason than they
have been told what to do." Read more of Peter Hunter's advice
on how to set motivational performance targets.
