Multi-dimensional Perspective

Each week the GoodPractice team takes a mundane learning and development topic and brings a fresh perspective, asking insightful questions, and challenging common notions. If only the profession had this ability from the beginning. We'd surely have progressed far further, faster. Well worth a weekly listen -- and don't be fooled by the titles. Most conversations go into far more interesting spaces.

A learning/performance go-to

An incredibly valuable resource for understanding how to support learning and, ultimately, performance. The approach is warm, the content practical. A true contribution to understanding - and supporting - how adults ultimately learn and apply that learning.
