Digital Literacy: Building expertise in critical, everyday digital activities

The digital skills gap is not only real, but it's broader than we have thought - it goes beyond typical IT and DevOps skills into every day digital technologies. As new technologies are adopted across all functional areas in an organization, tasks automated, and new jobs created, more and more employees must be digital literate. Yet getting there is not always easy. New hires frequently don't have all the skills needed for success, only 11% of organizations have all the digital skills needed to succeed, and 51% of organizations don't have a strategy for managing and developing skills in a digital world.

But where are you on your leadership journey, and where do you go from here? Over John's many years of teaching about leadership, that question exists at the heart of so many leaders. Everyone wants to know where they stand and how to get to the next level.

Based on the 5 Levels of Leadership paradigm in his book, Developing the Leader Within You, and then expanded further in the book, The 5 Levels of Leadership, John will explain how leaders can understand and increase their effectiveness.

To lead well, you must embrace your need for continual improvement, and the 5 Levels provide a leadership GPS to help you with your journey. You must know where you are, to know where you're going.

The 5 Levels at a Glance:

  • Level 1: Position—Learning to lead yourself – through priorities and self-discipline
  • Level 2: Permission—People choose to follow you because they want to; giving you permission to lead them
  • Level 3: Production—Producing results - knowing how to motivate other to get things done
  • Level 4: People Development—Reproduction: Identifying, developing, and investing in future leaders
  • Level 5: Pinnacle—Transcending one's position, organization, or even industry

11/10/2016 AMERICAS Making Competencies Work for You: You've Built a Competency Model, Now What? More Info Play

Making Competencies Work for You: You've Built a Competency Model, Now What?

An effective competency strategy supports short and long term organizational success because it allows for the alignment of talent/behavior with business objectives. Formal models reflect the organization's mission and values provide a common language to describe not only the KSAs (Knowledge, Skills and Abilities) for success, but often the intangible attributes that often are the qualities that "make or break" an individual's success in a specific role or with the organization in general. Informal modes are when competencies provide a language for managers (and their HR partners) to set goals and provide feedback on qualitative performance expectations which are often difficult for people leaders to articulate. At times, you may need to assist your internal stakeholder groups in how to speak the language of development and identify "informal" competency models that can be used to align learning to what's important to individual stakeholder groups. These competencies can answer the WIIFM question for decision makers and for ICs who need convincing to spend time on their development. During this workshop you will learn how to use content mappings more effectively to focus users on relevant development tools.

University Points: The Gamification of Training and Beyond

Ten years ago, Fallon Health began a Learning Points program with the goals of increasing tracking of employee learning and to encourage an ongoing culture of learning. Within the past few years, we adopted the Maestro Learning solution and then added the SumTotal Talent solution - participation in this program has exploded. During 2016, our Learning Points program has been rebranded into the University Points program — building off the internal name of our integrated suite (elixHR® Platform/SumTotal Talent/Succession/Maestro). In addition to rewarding employees with points for learning, employees also gain points for completing their performance evaluation tasks on time, and for completing parts of their employee profile — information that is essential for good succession planning metrics. And, of course, the program wraps up with recognition and prizes at the end of the year! Do you have what it takes to be a University Points Guru?
