    Temple University Japan Campus (TUJ) Continuing Education will start offering professional development and training courses in Osaka Center from October 1, 2011. 

    Below are few details about the program:

    Quality Education and Practical Skills
    Instructors hold licenses and professional degrees in their fields providing students with practical skills and knowledge that can immediately be put to use at the workplace.

    Documented Knowledge and Training
    Student Assessment Reports and Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are given to those who successfully complete course requirements at the end of the term. CEUs may also be applied towards earning certificates in: International Business Communication, Management Fundamentals, Executive Office Administration and International Business Management.

    Unique Learning Environment
    The common language at TUJ is English providing students with the motivation to always speak in English to their instructors, classmates and TUJ staff. Course instruction is in English and students come from different cultural backgrounds creating a natural international setting that fosters a diverse exchange of ideas and perspectives.  Organizations and companies whose employees are in these types of learning environment often see a big difference in improved work performance and motivation in their employees, which in turn translate into more positive business results.

    Course Schedules Designed for Working Professionals
    Courses are offered on weeknights and weekends to accommodate the modern day working professionals' schedules. An online course on International Business Management is also offered for the busy executive, allowing interaction with Tokyo- based students and an instructor teaching from Canada. In case of relocation from the Kansai region to the Kanto area (or vice- versa), students earning certificates also have the added benefit of transferring CEUs earned in either campus so they can complete their certificates and continue their studies.

    Free Placement Test
    There is a free English Placement test for non-native speakers who are not sure about their English levels. Beginner to upper- intermediate levels are offered to accommodate students' needs and to help them feel comfortable communicating in English in the soonest possible time.

    TUJ's Continuing Education is committed to providing high quality education and professional development training to those who need to meet the global challenges in today's business world. There is no doubt that working professionals equipped with advanced levels of English communication and business knowledge become more productive and effective in supporting their companies' global vision- valuable assets to any organization.

    The Bigger Picture:
    Developing Training Programs that Support Business Strategy


    Chief Learning Officers and other business leaders who deal with talent, learning and performance management are often called upon to drive corporate strategy, developing people in support of business goals and strategic work processes. Successful CLOs do this through several means:

    • Designing learning programs that are aligned with business goals and drivers.
    • Enhancing the talent and learning strategy to drive business results by offering content that supports the need for agility in the market, and can be easily updated and adjusted.
    • Gaining buy-in from other senior executives on investments in learning and talent management by tying them to (and delivering) measureable business results.
    • Providing business unit managers with direction and stakeholders accountability for the dollars spent on training and development.

    The result: training that keeps your team energized and moving the organization toward its mission. Done right, training aligned with business goals becomes second-nature. Guiding our clients to create these comprehensive programs is what we do best. Contact us and answer 3 simple questions about your program to get started.

    Five Reasons Training Fails

    TrainingEveryone in the learning and development business has at least one training story that’ll make you cringe or weep. These are the programs that may have cost a lot but generated low-to-no results, suffered from ill-fated design and delivery plans, or had non-existent follow-up.

    As training professionals, we want to be acutely aware of the potential trips and traps that could derail our well-intentioned programs for good. Here are five common reasons training fails…and how to avoid them:

    1. Training is not always the answer. But you already knew that. Make sure the team requesting or getting training is truly receiving what it needs. Maybe the call center needs job aids or performance support toolsundefinedand not more customer service training.
    2. Identify and know your audience from the outset. The more you know about the business needs of the group and managers, the more prepared you’ll be to deliver efficient and effective training. Spend time with the leaders and managers of the business units you’ll be working with to discuss and agree upon needs and expected results.
    3. Start small and get a win. When you show upper management a success story with a small group that requires small capitalization, then your chances for more dollars for more programs grows. Then you can tackle larger groups and show bottom-line results knowing your method works.
    4. Consider the need for ongoing training and follow-up. One 2-week session may not change the world, but combined with an online discussion board, job aids, coaching and mentoring, it could provide team members with access to resources long after the formal training is over and employees are applying their new skills to everyday issues.
    5. Make sure your stakeholders are invested. No buy-in from upper management and business unit leaders often leads to epic training failures. Get buy-in up front, keep stakeholders in the loop about the small wins the team makes after the training, and take the time to reinforce the value of learning to your organization’s overall success. And tie that success to business metrics of importance to your company, not just training metrics that matter to the training department.


    How Do You Identify High Potentials?

    High PotentialToday’s organizations find it challenging to locate and put in place a new generation of leadership that is both proactive and pragmatic. Disproportionately this new generation of leaders will come from the pool of people within an organization, often referred to as “high potentials.” But here’s the rub: By what criteria do we decide whether somebody is a high potential suited for a leadership position?

    Sam Bacharach, McKelvey-Grant Professor at the School of Industrial & Labor Relations of Cornell University and author of more than 10 eCornell online courses in high-performance leadership, suggests five criteria for selecting high potentials in his new whitepaper Criteria to Identify High Potentials in Your Organization. Dowload it online at eCornell.
