Dear HR, Training and L&D Teams,
Content Strategy: Part 2: Ask relevant Questions
Our 4 part Content Strategy articles will be based on why TLMM emphasises on the importance of designing best content to equip participants to have the ultimate training knowledge.  Part 2 is about Asking Relevant Questions.
  • Why is it important to convey this training message? This speaks to purpose.
  • Where on the training material should the message appear? This speaks to context.
  • Who is the audience? This speaks to the precision of the message.
  • What are we trying to say? This speaks to clarity.
  • How do we convey and sequence the information for maximum impact? This speaks to persuasiveness.

Content Strategy Part 1: Getting Started

Dear HR, Training and L&D Teams,
Content Strategy: Part 1: Getting Started

Our 4 part Content Strategy articles will be based on why TLMM emphasises on the importance of designing best content to equip participants to have the ultimate training knowledge. Part 1 is about Getting Started

  1. Definition of content: Content can be anything that answers a question employees need an answer to in order to improve performance.
  2. Curation: While content is king, context is queen, and we must provide a structure and form to this content so employees can find it, access it, and use it quickly and efficiently.
  3. Delivery: No effective content strategy is complete without a clear strategy for getting this content into the hands of employees with no barriers and no friction.
Until our Part 2 of Content Strategy, hope you learnt on Definitions of Content, Curations and Deliveries.
Happy Learning.

Future of HR - Trend 1- 2019

Dear HR, Training and L&D,
Thinking of what's the latest trends adopted by HR experts globally? We know...we know....start small, your company is not ready, culture 'not there yet'...bla.bla..bla... STOP IT! Get out of your seat and start doing something for a change (be resourceful)
FUTURE of HR - Trend 1- 2019
1. HR joins marketing in defining the company 'brand.'
Just as marketers prioritize the consumer experience, HR must consider the employee experience, which should always play a starring role in reward, benefit and communication strategies. For example:
• Does your company clearly and frequently communicate its mission, values and culture in a variety of channels?
• Do you leverage technology tools to build internal portals and platforms for sharing information and encouraging your employees to be your best advocates?
• Do you offer — and promote — opportunities for mentorship, volunteerism, task forces and other internal programs that can leverage employee interests and strengthen bonds across organizations and silos?
• Are you developing recruiting practices that map to your company's brand and underscore the value of a customized approach and personal touch?

Is It TRUE? People remember 10% of What we read


Dear HR, Training and L&D,
Remember a time when you just could not remember that point? TLMM team has faced this countless times. So we decided to find out why we can't remember what we read?
Is it TRUE? People remember 10% of what we read
Fortunately, wisdom has come down through the ages, from Aristotle to Pliny the Elder to Sophocles to Confucius. This wisdom can be best summarized as that people remember:
  • 10 percent of what they READ
  • 20 percent of what they HEAR
  • 30 percent of what they SEE
  • 50 percent of what they SEE and HEAR
  • 70 percent of what they SAY and WRITE
  • 90 percent of what they DO.
Is this TRUE? We are still doing test on ourselves to ensure this is rubbish and one human can certainly remember if the environment and the person permits it.
