HPT Video Matinee with Deborah Stone

HPT Video Practitioner: Deborah Stone

This video was shot in 2011. It is 6:57 minutes in length.


This Video Matinee Series will be published on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the duration of 2019.

The HPT Practitioner and HPT Legacy Video Series was started by Guy W. Wallace in 2008 as a means of sharing the diversity of HPT Practitioners, and the diversity of HPT Practices in the workplace and in academia. The full set of videos may be found and linked to – here.

HPT – Human Performance Technology – is the application of science – the “technology” part – for Performance Improvement. As the late Don Tosti noted, “All performance is a human endeavor.”

Whether your label for HPT is that, or Performance Improvement or Human Performance Improvement, it is all about Evidence Based Practices for Performance Improvement at the Individual level, the Team level, the Process level, the Department level, the Functional level, the Enterprise level, and at the level of Society/World.

HPT Practitioners operate at all of these levels, as this Video Series clearly demonstrates.

Although ISPI – the International Society for Performance Improvement is the home of many HPT Practitioners – the concepts, models, methods, tools and techniques are not limited to any one professional affinity group or professional label.

ISPI just happens to be where I learned about HPT – and has been my professional home since 1979.

Weekend Reflections 2019-06-15

I’ve been feeling that I’m somewhere between totally useless and useless lately.

Which was the plan.

This first knee replacement was going so well, that of course, the other knee started giving me some pain. Luckily I have that scheduled to be taken care of very soon.

My schedule has been fairly unimportant, as I’ve kept almost everything off of it during my recovery. I’m scheduling entire weeks for being off. And I mean really off.

There’s a reason that I’m feeling somewhere between totally useless and useless lately.
