HPT Video 2021 – Mike Taylor

I’ve known Mike only through Social Media for probably about a decade. He is one of the most prodigious producers and curators of L&D content I’ve come across. You should be following him already!

Adapted from his website

Born with a life-long passion for learning, Mike has the great fortune to work at the intersection of learning, design, technology & collaboration.

In addition to learning, he loves helping others do great, fun and cool that bring out their inner rock star. His personal tag line – “Ask. Learn. Share.”  – is reflected in his Learning Resolution post.

Mike is energized by breaking the ice and connecting with other people and enjoy speaking about learning, visual design, e-learning, performance improvement and anything else that can relate to those areas. Check out his Speaking/Presentations page to get an idea of what that looks like.  He is also a huge advocate of narrating your work to share and help others do great things!

There are so many aspects to learning and training that he is passionate about. The biggest one is to get the best result as efficiently as possible. In short, this means that all things being equal ‘less is more’!

Join him on Twitter where he shares and discusses learning,  technology, design and performance related topics. Or subscribe to his newsletter to stay up to date with the best things from the intersection of learning, technology, and social media.

You can get in touch with him anytime  to explore working together, talk shop or whatever else is on your mind.

Every Friday he posts a weekly recap of the best articles, posts, and resources he finds from the intersection of learning, design, and technology. Check that out here.

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 HPT Practices in the workplace and in academia.

The full set of videos – over 130 – 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 might operate at any of these levels, as this Video Series clearly demonstrates.

Although ISPI – the International Society for Performance Improvement is the professional 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.

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 Practices in Performance Improvement regardless of any affiliation with ISPI or not.

3 Questions Answered By An L&D Giant: Dana Robinson

Last year Mirjam Neelen and I supported the L&D Conference organized by Matt Richter and Will Thalheimer by producing 9 short videos, where we asked 3 Key Questions:

Dana Robinson has retired after more than 40 years as a highly acclaimed consultant, speaker, and author specializing in the areas of performance consulting and strategic partnering. Dana’s most recent position was as the Lead Performance Consultant with Handshaw, Inc., partnering with this firm to build capability to market, sell, deliver and enhance the performance consulting and strategic partnering services developed by Dana and her husband, Jim Robinson.

Dana and her husband co-authored the first book on Performance Consulting which was published in 1995. They are acknowledged as bringing the performance consulting discipline into the day-to-day application and practice of people within the Human Resources, Talent Development, and Organization Development fields. Their firm, Partners in Change, was based in Pittsburgh and for many years they also had an office in Toronto. With her global clients, Dana brought strategic partnering capabilities to people in Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America.

Dana is the recipient of numerous awards including ASTD/ATD’s Distinguished Contribution Award, the Thomas Gilbert Award from ISPI for Distinguished Professional Achievement, and was inducted as a Fellow into the Leadership and Organizational Development Hall of Fame. With her husband, Dana has co-authored seven books that have been collectively translated into more than two dozen languages.

Dana’s version of ‘retirement’ includes volunteer work, participating in two book clubs, taking courses at her local university, and travel with her husband providing time to be with family and friends. She will continue her quest to be a life long learner!

I Get To Choose

If I’ve Un-Friended you, Un-Followed you, Dis-Connected you – THIS is probably at the root of my reasoning.

The granddaughter at bat (2019)

Life is just too damn short to waste any time with some people’s total nonsense that is more than just a little dangerous to other people.

I get to choose.

The End.
