HPT Video with Patti Shank PhD

Just yesterday Patti and I finally met face-to-face after knowing each other for about a decade via Social Media. I was part of the Program Committee that invited her to speak at ISPI Charlotte – which she did yesterday – and THAT video will be coming out soon.

So since she was in town – so to speak – I took advantage of our proximity to drive down to Charlotte from my new home town up in the Beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains to record this video interview with her for my HPT Video Series.

Patti knows her stuff – and her stuff is informed by the Research. I look to her when I have questions about what’s what and what’s right – and you should too!


Check out this video – hot off the editing suite this morning… 48 minutes in length…

Patti’s books – 9 of them – all on Amazon – can be found – here.

My HPT Video Series

The HPT Practitioner and HPT Legacy Video Series was started by me 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, the Value Chain 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.
