2 1,000 Quotes: Self-Confidence
3. The Way I See It... Know Your Score
4. Case Study: Bitesize E-Learning at B&Q
5. The Challenges for UK Management

Editor's note
This week's interview with Chief Executive of the ILM is enough to
make all but the most cynical training and HRD professionals'
hearts skip a beat.

Ince explains how UK management must move away from the tradition
of cost-cutting, control techniques into something that sounds
rather more like people development.

He prescribes a management style that focuses on nurturing and
developing talent, giving responsibility to staff and encouraging
innovation, with big benefits, he maintains, for business.

And if this isn't enough to convince managers of the benefits of
training and developing staff, then maybe the latest research from
the IIP will have a persuasive effect.

The study shows that the main staff motivator is not cash, it's not
even the workmates, but something that managers will find is a lot
closer to home.
