    San Diego, CA (Sept. 19, 2013) — Blanchard® research has shown that today's workforce wants to be more in control of its learning journey and is driving demand that learning and development be done differently. The Ken Blanchard Companies®, a global leader in workplace leadership development, has announced the release of The SLII® Experience, a new learning design for its flagship product Situational Leadership® II (SLII®), the world's most taught leadership model. Backed by research and validated by more than 30 years of client work, SLII has been relied upon by some of the best organizations in the world. Most leaders gravitate toward one leadership style, but research shows it is more effective for leaders to choose the appropriate leadership style depending on the situation. SLII teaches people to use the right style at the right time. It improves the quality of conversations and strengthens relationships. It helps leaders to be more in tune with their people's needs and aligned with their own intentions. "The SLII Experience is a different way of learning that prepares people to lead differently," says Ken Blanchard. "It develops authentic, inspiring leaders whom others want to follow." The SLII Experience immerses people in SLII quickly, deeply, and effectively. Based on a leadership model that teaches leaders to use the appropriate leadership style in response to the needs of the person and the situation, the new experience provides a fast-paced, results-focused design based upon proven content and research. Unlike traditional classroom training, participants learn fast and practice slow so that each participant can experiment with the key skills and concepts and build confidence in using them back on the job. Once in the classroom, learners move through a dynamic flow of activities. Short, rapid learning scenarios and skill-building focused on real work issues challenge participants to demonstrate their familiarity with the content. A faster pace of learning paired with reinforcement over time, The SLII Experience is focused on greater learning retention and achieving desired behavior outcomes. Some of the key features include An SLII Fitness Test that measures leadership intelligence and results in a "before, after, and back-then" approach Video episodes produced in a modern television-program style, which depict realistic workplace scenarios in an entertaining way that engage participants with the content A mobile app that helps leaders quickly "diagnose" a situation and practice the right leadership style A self-paced 12-module online game called "The SLII Challenge" that allows learners to reinforce and deepen their skills while accumulating points An online learning portal with access to all of the videos, worksheets, and reinforcement tools, which learners can use back on the job with their teams Self-paced elearning tools further reinforce and internalize the material and provide support in teaching the concepts back to their team. Providing access to a participant’s team members is a partnered approach that gets an entire team speaking the same leadership language. "We're excited about the game-changing techniques in its learning design that engage, evoke, and express those common challenges we all face in the workplace from time to time," shares Pat Zigarmi, coauthor of Situational Leadership® II and cofounder of The Ken Blanchard Companies. "The SLII Experience teaches new behaviors for addressing those challenges." About The Ken Blanchard Companies The Ken Blanchard Companies® is a global leader in workplace learning, productivity, and leadership effectiveness that is best known for its Situational Leadership® II program—the most widely taught leadership model in the world. Because of its ability to help people excel as self-leaders and as leaders of others, SLII® is embraced by Fortune 500 companies as well as mid- to small-size businesses, governments, and educational and non-profit organizations.

    VANCOUVER, WA – Sept. 25, 2013 – Convergence Training, a leading producer of industrial training products and operational efficiency tools, announced today the addition of 30 new titles to their pulp & paper training course catalog. The computer-based courses, which include titles such as "Tissue Making Basics" and "Yankee Dryer Safety", are designed to provide foundational knowledge of pulp, paper, tissue, and corrugated manufacturing processes and equipment. The new courses reflect a recent initiative intended to grow Convergence Training's pulp & paper catalog to 200 courses by the end of 2014. Each 10-40 minute course features a combination of video-based instruction and interactive knowledge reviews. Course topics vary in detail, from general paper machine safety to more specific topics such as wet end chemistry and forming fabric design. The courses provide an introduction to common pulp and paper manufacturing and converting processes and target newly hired workers, sales and marketing teams, and even experienced personnel starting new positions within a plant. "Manufacturers are always looking for ways to speed up onboarding or plant startups," says Randy Kohltfarber, Convergence Training Owner and President. "These courses explain, very effectively, and with great visual presentation, the key stages of the paper or tissue or corrugated board manufacturing process. It’s a really efficient way to make sure that your entire team fully understands the function and hazards of each piece of equipment in your plant." Convergence Training is a familiar name in the pulp and paper industry, having long produced highly-customized operations and process training for industry leading manufacturers. "We’ve been doing this a long time," says Kohltfarber. "The custom training we produced in the past is usually machine-specific to our clients, however, we always knew there was an opportunity to create affordable, paper-specific training material for the broader industry." The inspiration for the new courses was drawn from decades of industry experience and customer feedback, and the content itself was developed by Convergence Training’s long-tenured and highly-experienced team of industry veterans, 3D animators, and media professionals. As Kohltfarber explains, "We’re in a unique position to be able to make really effective training on these subjects that can have a significant impact on safety, maintenance, and operational efficiency." The 30 new courses are available now from Convergence Training’s paper, box, and tissue training catalog. Short previews for each title and pricing info can be found on the Convergence Training website.

    WALTHAM, Mass., Nov. 5, 2013 — Brainshark, Inc., the leader in cloud-based business presentations, today announced that more than five million presentations have been uploaded to SlideShark by users around the world. SlideShark is Brainshark’s popular app for viewing and showing PowerPoints from the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Launched just two years ago, SlideShark has since seen explosive usage. The app solves a major problem for mobile professionals – as PowerPoint, the No. 1 business presentation tool, doesn’t render correctly on the iPad. SlideShark eliminates garbled decks and frustration, letting iOS users view PowerPoints the way they’re meant to be seen – with fonts, animations, graphics, hyperlinks and videos intact. To get started, users upload a PowerPoint to their free, secure, online account, and SlideShark converts the deck into an iOS-ready file. Brainshark is also announcing additional major milestones and traction for SlideShark, including: 150 million slides uploaded to SlideShark. More than 8,700 presentations uploaded each day (steady rate in 2013). One SlideShark presentation viewed every 3.6 seconds (more than 25,000 viewed every day). More than two million app downloads (two downloads/min., 24x7). Corporate and individual users in 150+ countries – from Canada to China to Saudi Arabia, and nearly half the countries in Africa. NASA also used the app under the ocean to train for asteroid exploration. Rated 4.5 stars out of 5 in Apple’s App Store, based on 4,000+ user reviews. SlideShark is a top “Productivity App” in the App Store, and is in the top two percent of all one million App Store apps, based on downloads. More than 25 industry awards, including most recently, Gold-level wins in both the Stevies’ American Business Awards and International Business Awards programs. Within the last month, SlideShark was also named a winner in the Golden Bridge Awards and Small Business Influencer Awards programs. Free with business upgrades available, SlideShark serves as a platform to securely distribute, track and manage presentations in the cloud. In addition to faithfully rendering PowerPoints, the app has cemented its status as a presenter’s best friend. Users can broadcast their presentations live over the Web, view slide notes while presenting, access content from popular cloud storage providers (Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, EMC’s Syncplicity, Citrix ShareFile and Microsoft SkyDrive), and more. SlideShark Team Edition, the business version of SlideShark, enables companies to apply permissions-based access to content; centrally manage, distribute and update presentations; and track content usage in the field. Organizations including Cleveland Construction, Delta Dental, Denver International Airport, Guerbet LLC, Heartbeat Ideas, Nerium International, the Networking Toolchest, Nine Network, Teledyne Marine Systems, Visionix and hundreds more rely on SlideShark Team Edition for their presentation management needs. “The 115 members of our sales team are equipped with iPads, yet PowerPoint is – and always has been – the tool we use to build presentation materials. We wanted sales staff to be able to access and give presentations instantly from their mobile devices – without having to ‘dumb down’ and rebuild all their PowerPoint assets to function in an iOS environment,” said Warwick Sharp, group sales operations manager for Nine Network, a top-rated television broadcaster in Australia, and part of Nine Entertainment Company. “SlideShark Team Edition solves this challenge for us. In addition, as a TV broadcaster, video quality is very important to us. SlideShark lets us display high-resolution program clips that are embedded in our slides – effortlessly and intact – for maximum impact with advertisers.” SlideShark Team Edition has reached all corners of the globe. Technology resellers worldwide – including En Pointe, Softchoice, Tech Data and more – have inked deals to resell the app to their customer base. “We’re excited to announce these milestones for SlideShark – chief among them, the fact that the app has hit the 5 million upload mark, a testament to its value and continued innovation,” said Joe Gustafson, Brainshark’s CEO. “As the industry standard for showing PowerPoints from iOS devices, SlideShark continues to solve business challenges for mobile presenters around the world.

    INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. – November 19, 2013 – Corporate Visions, Inc., the leading marketing and sales messaging, tools and training company, today announced it has acquired Executive Conversation, Inc., an award-winning business and financial acumen sales training company. This deal further expands Corporate Visions’ customer conversation system and makes it the industry’s largest provider of consulting and training services for helping companies deliver selling conversations that create more opportunities and win more profitable business.  For more than 20 years, Executive Conversation has been helping sales professionals elevate their confidence and credibility when conducting persuasive business and financial conversations with senior decision makers, including C-level executives. This ability has become increasingly important as C-level executives and line-of- business leaders now require business and financial justification for even modest investment decisions. Salespeople must have the financial skills and business know-how to add value during these critical conversations. “The addition of Executive Conversation will bolster our world-class customer conversation skills training lineup, which will now feature three of the best offerings in the world: Power Messaging, Executive-Focused Selling and Situational Sales Negotiation,” said Corporate Visions CEO Joe Terry. “Corporate Visions has focused on creating sales and marketing messaging, tools and skills to break the status quo and create differentiation, while Executive Conversation provides the skills to support the business and financial rationale to validate decisions. Through this acquisition, we now create and deliver a complete approach for conversational selling to our customers.” Jim Melillo, co-founder and chairman of Executive Conversation, added: “Corporate Visions was by far the best fit for our company moving forward. We share the same passion for enabling salespeople to be more effective in their customer conversations and provide complementary offerings that will give companies a more holistic approach to both improving conversation skills and increasing deal-closing impact.” A just-released study by TrainingIndustry.com found that companies rated “understanding customer business needs” as the most important sales training topic. The research also indicated that high-performing companies rate “training on executive selling skills” and “financial acumen” as critical sales skills more than twice as often as average-performing companies do. These results emphasize the importance of the types of skills training provided by Executive Conversation. “Understanding the best practices of high-performing companies helps other organizations more effectively align their sales skills training,” said Ken Taylor, chief operating officer at Training Industry, Inc. “For many years, we’ve recognized both Executive Conversation and BayGroup International, now a Corporate Visions company, as two of the world’s top training companies. Incorporating these complementary curricula into one organization brings tremendous value to the marketplace.”  The Executive Conversation acquisition follows Corporate Visions’ acquisition of BayGroup International, the leading negotiations skills training company, in April 2013. The expanded Corporate Visions portfolio now covers a complete customer conversation continuum – from creating value at the beginning of a sales cycle, to confirming that value with executive buyers and capturing it during negotiations. “B2B selling still comes down to a series of conversations. Early in the sales process, your reps need to be provocative; in the middle, your reps need to build and prove differentiated value; and late in the process, they often have to elevate their conversation to the senior-most executive levels,” said Jim Ninivaggi, services director for the sales enablement practice at SiriusDecisions. “Companies that enable their reps with the content and skills to have these conversations will position themselves to create a sustainable competitive advantage. Corporate Visions’ recent acquisition of Executive Conversation, and previously BayGroup, positions the company well to offer solutions for each of these different conversations.” The Executive Conversation acquisition was officially completed on Nov. 8, 2013. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. About Corporate Visions, Inc. Corporate Visions, Inc. helps global business-to-business companies create more sales opportunities, win more deals and increase sales profitability by improving the conversations salespeople have with customers. Companies engage Corporate Visions in three key areas: Developing differentiated messages that concentrate on customer needs; Deploying tools that support critical steps in the buying cycle; and Delivering sales skills training that enables salespeople to create, confirm and capture more value.

    NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2013 – One in three employers expect turnover to rise at their organization in 2013, according to a survey by AMA Enterprise, a division of American Management Association. In fact, five percent think turnover will increase significantly, 28 percent somewhat; 58 percent expect no change, and nice percent don’t know. AMA Enterprise, which provides organizations with assessment, measurement and tailored learning solutions, surveyed top managers and executives from nearly 1,000 U.S. employers. “We had an unusually strong response to our survey, which was conducted during the holiday period,” said Sandi Edwards, AMA Enterprise Senior Vice President. “Based on our findings, there’s a widespread sense that more workers will be on the move this year, and this will be due largely to a revived job market, which nearly two out of three of our respondents feel confident about.” “The good news is that there’s growing confidence about the economy and the job market,” Edwards said. “The bad news is that there’s also growing disgruntlement among employees, which is likely to result in increased turnover.” Are companies ready to cope with a mounting loss of employees? Of those that anticipate higher turnover, organizations seem evenly divided on how well they are prepared.  “Regrettably too many companies admit they’re not ready to deal with the probable challenge,” warned Edwards. “And a great majority say they’re only ‘somewhat prepared,’ which leaves them highly vulnerable to the loss of talent.” Edwards advises employers to tune in to employee sentiment and have one-on-one career discussions, particularly with high potential and high value employees. “Let them know how they contribute to the success of the firm and what role they play both today and in the future.” The survey was conducted Dec. 18 to Jan. 6, and respondents consisted of 977 senior-level business, human resources, management professionals and employee contacts drawn from the AMA database of contacts. About AMA Enterprise With more than 85 years’ experience and headquartered in New York, American Management Association is a global leader of comprehensive talent development. AMA Enterprise, a specialized division of AMA dedicated to building corporate and government solutions, transforms enterprise-wide talent to fuel a culture of innovation, high performance and optimal business results.

    NEW YORK, Feb. 11, 2013 – Two-thirds of U.S. employers are concerned about gaps in their organization’s management ranks, according to a survey of nearly 1,000 companies by AMA Enterprise, a division of American Management Association. Only 28 percent of respondents are confident their companies have sufficient leadership depth and no significant gaps in management. “With widespread expectation that employee turnover will increase as the job market improves, organizations are taking a hard look at their management bench strength,” said Sandi Edwards, Senior Vice President of AMA Enterprise, which provides organizations with assessment, measurement and tailored learning solutions. “And in most cases they’re finding their pipeline spotty or weak.” Furthermore, few employers (19 percent) regard themselves as well prepared to deal with either rising turnover or management departures, according to the survey. “For several years now organizations haven’t paid sufficient attention to retention or turnover,” Edwards said. “But years of complacency may be giving way to costly turmoil and loss of key players. Most organizations just aren’t ready to deal with it.” Employers need to be proactive, Edwards advised. “Don’t wait for the bad news from your high-value employees. Talk to them now and address their aspirations. Counteroffers usually don’t work or compensate for years of taking people for granted.” “There can also be a ripple of consequences when leadership succession isn’t well planned,” said Edwards. “The gap left after a sudden departure can trigger a spike in customer defections or dissatisfaction, a slowdown in productivity, increased hiring and training costs, and general uncertainty for the people who remain in the organization”. The survey was conducted from Dec. 18 to Jan. 6 2012, and respondents consisted of 977 senior-level business, human resources, management professionals and employee contacts drawn from the AMA database of contacts.
