Fabulous

Just reviewed the episode on Behavior Change and Instructional Design.This is a key element most new designers miss. Training is NOT about content. It's about the end result of what the learner applies to the job - what they know and do. We need to work to ensure that we keep the main thing the main thing. Keep up the good work. Bravo!
