Dear Readers,


Providing practical insights to improve the workplace is what we strive for here at WorkforceXpert. 


Margery Weinstein’s article on “The Coaching Culture” provides just such insights. But first, she makes several provocative statements -- including: “…the inability of a manager to coach means that the manager shouldn’t be a manager.” And, “In a coaching culture, no one should be too senior and lofty to learn a new skill—and to be able to use that new skill to work with those they manage on finding workable solutions.”  These truths frame her practical recommendations on the best ways to utilize individual talents to maximize overall results. 


In this month’s article from Edward Hubbell, he encourages all instructional designers to get to know ADDIE.  Who? Read on to learn more about the five phase process recommended for diversity training: Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation – or ADDIE for short.
