[FLR] What Apple Teaches In Its Ultra-Secretive Training | Friday Leadership Report

Happy Friday, 

 

Like many of us, I grew up on Sesame Street. Jim Henson and his team created a creative, interesting and memorable way for us to learn our “ABCs.” 

 

Next week is National Learn @ Work Week. According to the Conference Board of Canada only 31% of employees receive formalized workplace training. Watson Wyatt Worldwide discovered in their research, that companies that took training seriously, have on average a 30% higher shareholder return than their peers. Investing in people is just plain good business.
