Social Media for Trainers: Filled with Great Ideas and Techniques

Learned vs. Learners

ID Reflections

I have been deviating from the key themes of this blog, i.e., learning, performance, training and collaboration, for some time now. However, the deviations have been topics that moved me deeply, and I did not want to write about them in a separate blog. In the future too, I see this blog being intermittently peppered with posts unrelated to organizational learning but delineating experiences that are of personal import. They are as much a part of me as all things learning. And this is the trigger for today’s post. But I digress. Predictable, measurable, trainable!
