 Want to reduce accidents? Battle harden your troops! New recruits bare the brunt of injuries during battles, in this article Safety World inc explain that the situation is much the same in industry and how to battle harden your employees for action
 Having the confidence to apply Lack of confidence is often all that stands between a competent professional and the world of management. Abeceder associate Cheryl Donnison explains how coaching can help to build confidence.
 Learning From The Past - Looking To The Future This article Abeceder Associate Sue Heward uses a popular and familiar model – the Learning Cycle with a seasonal twist, to reflect on our learning from 2005 and look at our choices and practical steps for 2006. The article will describe what the model is, why it is important to individuals, particularly if you are a manager and how to use it to benefit ourselves and others.
 When Managers Collide Every business needs good managers, but good managers don't always get along. In this article Abeceder managing director Michael Millward suggests some solutions for when managers collide.
 How do you learn How do you learn about how to use a new product or technique? Do you tear off the packaging and start to try the item out, or do you read the instructions fully before making a start? Your choice of method has a lot to do with your preferred Learning Style. In this article, Abeceder associate Sue Heward explains Honey and Mumford’s Learning Styles and why they are important to you and your business and how to use them.
 Do you know how much the lower paid section of your workforce really costs you? Business concerns expressed about retaining employees typically centre on specialist skills and key senior jobs; but, asks Abeceder Associate Linda Ryan, what about the lower graded section of the workforce, is this being managed as cost effectively as it could be? Employees at the lower end of the pay scale are key to business profitability, and employment policies designed to retain this group can generate real benefits.
 Assessment Centres Assessed While the use of assessment centres is on the increase (according to a recent CIPD survey, 34% of employers surveyed had used them), the importance of adopting good practices cannot be over-emphasised. Assessment centres aim to provide ‘accurate’ assessments but this can only be achieved through careful and effective design and implementation. In the third of several articles on competencies, Abeceder Associate Gayna Deacon takes a look at the purpose of assessment centres, as well as the ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ to using assessment centres for selection as part of a wider competency-based recruitment and selection process.
