T&D: Reflections on 40 Years in the Biz

I Started in T&D in 1979

So 2018 ends my 40th year in the biz.

The T&D Biz – a.k.a.: L&D.

As I ponder those numbers I keep going back to that fateful day back in September 1979 when I attended my first NSPI Chapter meeting – and my boss signed me up to be on the newsletter committee. I’ve posted about that before. Here is one of those Past Posts.

The people I met there have had a HUGE influence on my professional beliefs and practices.

I have attempted to recognize and thank quite a few individuals for their contributions to my professional development, in two ways.

My First Friday Favorite Gurus Blog Post Series

I did this series monthly for over 3 years. And I’ve added to it just this past year.

I may pick it up again – as there are others who have continued to influence my professional practice. And I should include them too.

I have a long list. Lucky me.

Reflections Are Good For The Soul

Indeed. And I will continue to do so.

Thiagi taught me that.

Thanking those who mentored me requires Paying it Forward.

The late Geary A. Rummler taught me that.
