The learning is still here, just everywhere.

At the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) people from around the world had the chance to look and explore thousands of tools that will be used at work, in homes, while in transit.  More than the Internet of Things (IoT) these technological wonders are being brought to market in a seamless manner to the end … Continue reading


Broaden & Build your (learning) way to success

Learning must impact the bottom line, consider that “80% of CEOs surveyed say their top strategy to enable digital transformation is to reskill current employees” (CLO Insight Summit, September2017).  Employers are not finding a talent pool filled with qualified applicants and learning can step up and meet this need to grow a changing and evolving … Continue reading


It took a dance for me to see..

You should know I am writing a book framed by the many blog posts I have written about learning, strategy, design, and improving human performance.  About 3 months ago I suddenly couldn’t write a thing.  I found myself using the time to develop project proposals, try new marketing ideas and efforts, and other “stuff” that … Continue reading

Strategically Social is tactically terrific!
