I have been working in a large corporate setting since 2011 and I spent several years writing about it. These are my thoughts, ideas, and just me documenting some of the things I've experienced. You may find solutions to problems, just thinking through the problems, and more.

You may notice the posts end on March 23rd, 2016. That's because I have been exploring other interests in my spare time which do related to Learning & Development a lot. Mainly I have been working on Exprance, Sacramento web design agency, but there are also some other side projects I've worked on.

One of my jobs at the two big organizations I've worked at (Robert Half & DaVita) is to create videos for the IT department. IT software is boring and learning about changes and how it affects jobs isn't fun. To make it more interesting I have worked on many releases to create a marketing/training video. It's a marketing video because it helps sell the changes and make it more interesting. It's training because it also shows some of the details about the upcoming changes.

The videos for IT departments are neither fully marketing nor fully training. They don't go into the details of the changes, which job aids help cover, but they do make updates sound more interesting.

I have recently decided as part of my side projects is going to be to help other organizations create similar videos for their releases. They are a huge benefit to organizations and their IT departments. You can learn more on my App Marketing Video web page with more details about the marketing/training videos.

Now for some of the content I've written about on the L&D side of things.

For Fear of Failure

What keeps you from trying something new? I grapple with this question in my work life and home life. We tend to stick to the things we know which keeps us from trying new things. You’ve seen that right? If you’re in L&D then the answer should be yes, but this isn’t about L&D. My theory…
