Editor’s Letter W elcome to the third issue of Accelerate. This issue focuses on a customised approach to the things we do. When we tailor our products to our prospective customers, when we create plans that factor the people within the teams that support us, when we create activities that allow for modifications that suit our needs, it ensures that we have a better fit between what we do and the results we achieve. We are thrilled to feature :• Tom Schafer who has created and/or facilitated over 115 learning programmes and been the guiding force behind AmeriCredit’s innovative institutionalisation of learning styles; • Ray Pendleton who shares what organisational readiness for change looks like; • Deon van der Vyver who outlines how you can develop an effective pay structure; • Ron Thomas who argues the case for a good onboarding programme because first impressions count • and much more. Accelerate is for anyone leading, coaching, engaging and growing others. Our focus is on all things related to the development, growth and inspiration of people within teams and organisations. Accelerate aims to create a balance between professional and personal development and to have broad appeal whether you work in business, government or academia, regardless of practice or industry. This Issue We hope that Accelerate will be an essential part of your professional life. PEOPLE LEADING BUSINESS Issue 03 | May 2015 We welcome any feedback.
