TrainingZONE Newswire #325 – Training Investment Up; Emotional Intelligence; Coaching for Results


TrainingZONE Newswire - Issue 325
20 September 2004

1. Feature: Understanding Emotional Intelligence
2. Paul Kearns: Coaching for Results
3. The Way I See It... Train to Retain
4. Training Investment up 50%
5. Training Boosts Job Prospects for 70%

Editor's note
Leadership thinking has moved away from the old command and control
management style. In recent weeks TrainingZONE has featured the
likes of ILM chief Gary Ince and Naked Leader author David Taylor
espousing the benefits of a management style that focuses on
developing and facilitating staff. This week on TrainingZONE we
carry a case study of one housing association that put its managers
through a facilitative leadership course and felt the benefits
across the organisation. And staying with the leadership theme,
Michael Massey explains the theory behind emotional intelligence
and its part to play in leadership skills.

Elsewhere in the news this week is further evidence of expansion in
the training market, with the CBI reporting that UK businesses are
spending more on training than last year. And with unemployment at
a 20-year low, recruitment firm director Pauline Godley explains
the economic imperative that companies train to retain.
