Slow and steady professional development

By |2022-03-10T17:53:12+00:00March 10th, 2022|Charting Your Course 2022, Professional Development, Self-Directed Learning|

When you work in L&D, you’d think that learning would come easy. But we have the same challenges as people in other fields in trying to remain abreast of changes and to continuously improve our knowledge and skill. While L&D folks aren’t generally required to log development credits, the field is changing so much that [...]

Celebrating a decennial anniversary

By |2022-02-12T05:42:38+00:00February 12th, 2022|Uncategorized|

On February 12, 2012, I obtained a business license for Learning 4 Learning Professionals and officially began the consulting chapter of my career. Ten years ago today. It seems like we’ve lived way more than a decade in the last decade, but I’m proud to be part of a field that makes a difference – [...]

Be self-directed, but don’t learn alone

By |2022-04-07T02:08:20+00:00February 3rd, 2022|Charting Your Course 2022, Self-Directed Learning|

One of the biggest myths about self-directed learning is that it’s done alone. Picture the determined leader holed up reading and note-taking, or the undiscovered athlete practicing a sport for hours, experimenting and self-critiquing, or the up-and-coming professional staying up late to watch tutorials and fine-tune their work. But it’s likely that these solitary activities [...]

By |2022-04-07T02:12:37+00:00January 19th, 2022|Charting Your Course 2022, Learning Goals, Self-Directed Learning|

My goals for 2022 include deliberate choices about my learning projects (apropos since I’ve been preaching self-directed learning quite a bit in the last several years). I’ve charted two projects so far – one of which serves an immediate need, and one of which is [...]

Opening the door to 2022

By |2021-12-09T22:16:16+00:00December 9th, 2021|Ruminations|

The following is my contribution to the Learning Guild's ebook, 2022 Predictions from L&D Practitioners. Download it to see an array of predictions from other practitioners (accessible with free membership to Learning Guild). Do you remember that scene in the Wizard of Oz where Dorothy has just landed in Munchkinland? She’s gone through a tornado [...]

Making learning a habit

By |2021-09-14T20:03:20+00:00September 14th, 2021|Book Reviews, Self-Directed Learning|

If you read into the background of notable people who are exemplary lifelong learners, you can find some common ground  – they read quite a bit, they set goals, they experiment, they cultivate curiosity, they schedule time for learning projects (rise early, set aside time before bed), they walk or exercise when they need to [...]
