Insight On Business the News Hour

The Iowa Business Journals and The Advisor

We sit down for a relaxing conversation with Jolene Goodman from the Iowa Business Journals and she surprises me with something called The Advisor that is being published on a weekly basis in several communities in the Greater Des Moines Metro. We kick things off moaning about how so many small business people don't have the time to really dig into marketing and advertising and often make choices that do not reflect their customer base.

Only The Best Make It - The Trainer Certification Program from Tero International

I sat down with Deborah Rinner the Vice President and Chief Learning Officer of Tero International to talk about the certification program that is unique to Tero. What they do to find top quality talent and then train them to consistantly go out and train their clients seems exhausting. But, in the end, the company develops people like Candice Johnson whom you will also meet here. Of Candice, Deb said, "Who she is as a person is what we look for as we develop the talent to go out and represent our brand among our clients." Clearly this is a team that understands it's more than simply learning...it's also in the DNA of the perspective trainer.

What software should you use? How do you keep it all current and flexible? Some serious considerations and here we visit with Ned Flynn from Aureon HR about saving time and effort by using software.
