I Believe in the Value of Connectedness

Tom Spiglanin

While every organization in the world is unique, most have characteristics in common. All employees are ultimately connected to one another through a common purpose to succeed and fulfill the mission of the organization.

I Believe in the Many Emerging Roles for Learning and Development Professionals

Tom Spiglanin

The 70:20:10 framework helps to put the work of learning and development (L&D) organizations into perspective within the whole of employee learning ( previous article ). Learning the multifaceted “ropes” is necessary to become a valued employee.

I Believe in the Inverse Relationship Between Experience and the Value of Formal Learning

Tom Spiglanin

If Learning and Development organizations (or anyone, for that matter) are going to facilitate learning in the changing workplace, it’s vitally important to understand how employees actually learn.

Tom Spiglanin

Small Changes Make a Difference

Tom Spiglanin

In my previous post, I mentioned how my role in workplace learning and development (L&D) had fundamentally changed this past year. My optimism ultimately derives from several sources, most profoundly my personal learning network of colleagues around the world.
