Management Training and Development

Friday, October 19th, 2012

Decades of psychological research have established what good school teachers intuitively know about the most effective ways to reach their students and help them understand new concepts and ideas. For example, there are a number of simple principles that will help learning be more effective:

1) Make the learning relevant. We remember things better when they matter to us, and we are more likely to pay attention to a speaker or a topic when we can apply it to our own work.

2) Make sure the learning can be used immediately, as we quickly forget things that we don’t regularly practice. Have you ever been on an IT training course but then forgotten how to use the system or program because the course was 6 months ago?

3) Keep the learning interactive. Trainers need to ensure than “talk with”, rather than ‘talk at’ their participants. This is achieved by asking questions, challenging delegates to think and using creative ways of involving them through exercises, discussions and reflection.

4) Limit the use of DVD/Videos. Few things are more passive than watching television. Of course, there are excellent resources available in this medium, many of which will be very helpful. It is just important to make sure this is not the primary means of communication. For example, think about using brief clips to illustrate points, or break up a training session with humour.

5) Review. Spend the first five minutes of every new training session reviewing what occurred in the previous one. This technique can help link tie important themes together and promote integration of the training program as a whole.

6) Space out management training sessions. Very little is learned by cramming things in. Make sure that after a training session the participants have an appropriate amount of time to put into practice what they have learned before embarking on the next piece of learning.

7) Encourage participants to read around the subject. Provide additional reading materials, books, articles internet sites etc to enable the participants to further their development.

The Best Industrial Flooring Option

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

You might be searching for the wrong solutions because you may not be aware of innovations in materials for industrial flooring, however. That might leave you considering the traditional commercial flooring options, which may be lacking some aspects you need.You may consider the durability and non-porous qualities of floor resin options or the shiny look of a urethane concrete floor, but what will the floors look like several months from now? Rubber flooring is not the right option for industrial flooring applications for a number of reasons, even though they offer slip-proof safety for your employees. Tile floors can look stylish, but they can be high maintenance and get slick when wet. Is there an option in industrial flooring that offers everything commercial operations need?

There is an extraordinary flooring product for industrial and commercial applications that is highly durable and offers strong protection. It is hygienic, non-porous, easily wipes clean and there is no-downtime because it cures in less than an hour in temperatures as low as Zero! What’s even better is that it offers a safe, anti-slip flooring surface that can withstand forklift traffic or harsh chemical spills and it keeps looking as new as the day it was installed for months and years later. Because it is easy to repair, it offers a long life of easy maintenance. It is industrial flooring that will last the lifetime of your commercial or industrial building. Does it sound too good to be true?

Silikal is a reactive seamless flooring product that contains enhanced MMA, but don’t mistake this product for the standard MMA products that are on the market. The Silikal reactive resins are developed, manufactured, sold and installed to the strictest quality standards and environmental standards under ISO guidelines 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2005. You might not know what the difference is in some products, initially, but you can see the difference several months after they are installed!

When it comes to industrial flooring choices that offer the best protection for your floor and the most benefit to your pocketbook and your employees’ safety, Silikal flooring has everything you are looking for. Not only is the easy maintenance and repair more cost effective, but consider the fact that Silikal flooring is the last floor you will ever need for your commercial or industrial building! In addition, your employees are safer, with fewer slip and fall accidents, which might mean lower insurance premiums.

Because it is more sanitary and hygienic, Silikal flooring is better for food processing businesses, but it is non-porous, which means that dirt, water or harsh chemicals can be mopped clean, without damaging the floor surface. Silikal flooring is available in a wide variety of colors and designs, to fit any industrial or commercial application. That means your industrial flooring will be easy to clean, yet still look new for many years, unlike any other flooring choices you might be considering. Silikal flooring will be the last flooring installation you will ever need to worry about purchasing for your industrial or commercial building, so you can see the potential cost savings it has to offer.
