Questions leaders need to answer about culture and learning

first_img continue reading » Most managers and executives would likely agree that learning and development is an important ingredient in the future success of their organizations, and most folks would tell you that professional development opportunities are an important consideration when evaluating potential employers.However, that doesn’t always translate into meaningful learning and development efforts within organizations. Take, for example, this diversity training, from learning and development mastermind, Michael Scott…Now, this lack of meaningful and substantive organizational development isn’t necessarily from a lack of willingness or effort (though sometimes it is). Often, it’s simply a matter of folks just not knowing where to start or even really how to start thinking about it. 24SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img

first_imgThe Taifa Stars, fourth East African team to qualify after Uganda, Kenya and BurundiTanzania  3 Uganda  0QualifiedUganda Kenya Burundi Tanzania Dar es Salaam, Tanzania | THE INDEPENDENT | Tanzania’s Taifa Stars have qualified for the 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) after a convincing 3-0 win over Uganda Cranes in a Group L game qualifying game played in Dar el Salaam on Sunday.Tanzania became the fourth team from the CECAFA region to qualify for for 2019 Afcon after Uganda, Kenya and Burundi who qualified on Saturday for the first time.Although the Uganda Cranes had already qualified, coach Sebastien Desabre’s side where hungry to remain unbeaten in the qualifiers.

Miami Man Who Damaged Police Cars Says Group Recruits People to Incite Violence at Protests

first_imgLopez claims to belong to a group called the “Southern Slaves,” which he told officers “actively recruits people to violently protest the government.”Officers were able to identify him by investigating videos of the protests posted on social media and comparing them to his own profile photo.The arrest report states that Lopez told interviewing officers, “Walking around the city won’t do anything, sooner or later you have to turn to violence.” A man charged with damaging several police cars during a recent George Floyd protest in Miami claims to be part of a group that purposely encourages violence at such demonstrations.Miami Police arrested 21-year-old Marco Lopez on Saturday, after an investigation that lasted for several days.According to authorities, Lopez confessed to breaking the back window of a Miami police cruiser with his skateboard during a protest on the night of Saturday, May 30.They say he also admitted to damaging the rear bumper of a second police vehicle, and to spray painting a third.last_img read more

Skiing is simple

first_imgYou stand balanced on the center of the turning ski and pressure it through the turn. At the end of the turn, you switch to the other foot and repeat. You do this on mellow slopes, on steep slopes, in open bowls, in trees, on sunny days and on days you can’t seek the forest for the snow.That’s it. You balance on a ski sliding down a hill.Skiing is simple.I’m only half jesting. Watch a great skier on the hill and notice how they seem to simply stand on their ski riding down the hill. In essence, they are doing just that.The trick to balancing lies in remaining centered and using the whole of the ski’s running surface against the snow. This holds true for any skier at any ability level.Think about it for a second. Running across the ice of a frozen pond, it’s hard to keep your balance. Try to make a quick turn and, boom, you’re down. Running across a field, it’s easy. Run across the same field when it’s wet and it’s easy until you have to turn or stop. Then you have same problems as on the pond. Not in the same extreme manner as on ice, but the control and effort to stay upright falls somewhere between the dry field and ice. If your runners have cleats, you grip the wet grass and turn with ease. If you put on a pair of skates to cross the pond, it’s a piece of cake. Zip.Think about the skates on the pond. It’s easier to skate when you engage the skates against the ice. Just wobbling along trying to stay upright is difficult. Push and glide, the effort returns a semblance of balance. You engage the skate blade with the ice. Stay balanced over the skate and you remain upright. Go too far forward or too far back and boom, you’re down. Plop. Sounds a lot like skiing.Sounds a lot like surfing and skateboarding too.Sounds like any athletic activity. To stay upright, you remain centered. You stay engaged in the action.Go back to a wedge. Find a mellow slope and make a few turns. Watch how to start the turn in a wedge, you have to engage the uphill ski early, before it starts to turn or move into the fall line. To be smooth, you stand on it evenly and glide the ski all the way through in big sweeping “C” shaped turns until it is running across the hill and then step on the other ski, the uphill ski and repeat the effort. As you ski along, still in a wedge, watch how easy it is to turn if you keep turning. In other words, stepping from one turn to the next like you are running down stairs. Never let the ski run in a traverse. Starting a turn out of a traverse becomes more difficult.Now speed up the turns.What happens?Your skis match, go parallel. The parallel turn is a natural extension of the wedge turn.When someone makes a wedge turn, they use the non-turning ski, the ski riding on the inside of the turn, for balance like training wheels on a bike. Once you stand comfortably on the turning or outside ski, you don’t need that inside ski for balance. The faster you go, the more the outside ski grips and the less you need the inside ski for balance.As on a bike, a certain amount of speed is your friend. Gravity pulls us down the hill. A turning ski is working against gravity and converting gravity into turning motion. The more turns you make, the slower  you go. More turns means more of the acceleration of gravity has been co-opted into turns.See. It’s really simple. Stand on the ski. Make lots of turns. Control your speed.Keith Liggett is a Fernie-based writer.last_img read more
