HPT Video 2022 – Sebastian Tindall

I first met Sebastian via the L&D Pivot to Performance video series I did with David James in 2021. I was very impressed with his thinking and approach to Performance-Based L&D, and knew that I wanted to chat with him in this video series.

Adapted from Sebastian’s LinkedIn Profile

Sebastian Tindall believes that people are the best asset that any organisation has, and that getting the best out of them is the single biggest competitive advantage. This is why he has spent 15 years working to support organisations achieve their aims through people centric projects.

Just like any department L&D must be grounded in organisational data, tied to deep performance metrics, accountable for results and ultimately must evidence true organisational impact. He has spent many years understanding and demonstrating how L&D can really contribute to organisational performance and that has helped to shape the people professional he is today. He is always eager to connect with people who are actively innovating in the people development space and he frequently share his experience in global publications, conferences and podcasts in the hope of reaching more L&D professionals.

Sebastian’s experience is not limited to people development, as he has experience in HR business partnering and the wider people space. This broad foundation has allowed him to broaden the scope of his role in many organisations that he has worked in, and his mindset has always been to “add value where you can and not just where you should.”

By way of credentials he has been recognised through the following : CIPD Level 7, FLPI and TAP cert qualified, and he holds a degree from the University of Manchester.

Guy’s HPT Video Series

The HPT Video Series … formerly known as 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 their HPT Practices in the workplace and academia.

The full set of videos – over 160 – may be found indexed and linked to – here.

HPT – Human Performance Technology – is the application of science – the “technology” part – for Performance Improvement.

As a former colleague has 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 might operate at any of these levels, as this Video Series clearly demonstrates.

This Series Has Evolved Since 2008

These videos were first posted on Google Video, then they were moved to Blink, and now they may all be found on YouTube. And my name for them has changed as well…

HPT Practitioner Video Podcasts and HPT Legacy Video Podcasts

– Practitioner Series – short 2-10 minutes, following a script. Intended to show the diversity of HPT and HPT Practitioners. (2008-2018)

– Legacy Series – longer 15-40+ minutes, also scripted, with added stories of other NSPI/ ISPI’ers from the earlier days of the Society or others who were of great influence. Intended to capture the stories of the people who influenced us. (2008-2018)

– HPT Video Series (2019+) – is a continuation of the first two types of videos in this series but with less focus on capturing NSPI/ISPI members – and expanding out to any and all who use Evidence-Based
