@TisForTraining 303: Culture Eats Strategy

Howard started by telling us the inspiration for the book and then dug into the neuroscience behind “making someone’s day.” (page 34)  Yes, science! And there is a boomerang effect and ripples. Wow!
How can we make everyone feel like a VIP? Howard gave us his VIP model (p. 127).  We need to observe what is happening around us, identify a need or opportunity, and act.
We spent the rest of the show telling stories and highlighting how people’s days have been made better.  Howard shared stories from the book. We shared stories – positive and negative – from our work lives. We even talked about how introverts can make someone’s day (chapter 6).  The conversation was interesting with lots of information, and uplifting.
You can listen to the show on TalkShoe of wherever you get your podcasts.

Upcoming Episodes (Jan./Feb. 2022)

The next three episodes of T is for Training continue our practice of featuring an interesting mixture of guests and topics designed to inspire positive action among our colleagues in training-teaching-learning.

Howard Prager, a cherished colleague from ATD (the Association for Talent Development) will be with us this evening (Episode 303) to discuss his book Make Someone’s Day: Becoming a Memorable Leader in Work and Life and how it applies to our training-teaching-learning environments. Howard, as he notes on his own website, “is President of Advance Learning Group, an author, speaker, executive coach and leadership consultant who strengthens people and organizations through insightful talks, workshops, leadership and management programs.” Additional information about Howard and that engaging book is on my own website.

Maurice Coleman

We’ll be turning everything on its head here at T for Episode 304 (Thursday, February 10, 2022) when we put show host Maurice Coleman at the center of a conversation about trainer-teacher-learners as lifelong learners to celebrate Maurice’s achievement in having recently returned to school to earn a B.A.

Casey Davis, author of Digital Civics and Citizenship: An Applied Approach, joins us for Episode 305 (February 24, 2022) to discuss the themes in his book and how they apply to our own work in training environments across the U.S. Casey is an educator with more than 20 years of experience working with diverse learners in a variety of settings and is among the colleagues I’ve met through the ShapingEDU community, under the auspices of Arizona State University.

All three hour-long episodes will be recorded, as usual, at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT on the dates listed in this preview. Archived recordings will be posted here on the T is for Training blog.

@TisForTraining 302: Say Yes To Say No

On this first episode of 2022, we had Jared Bendis, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Diane Huckabay, Paul Signorelli, and Maurice Coleman.  This entire episode was Jared and Jill talking about U.S. copyright and education! They provided explanations, great examples, and occasionally dug into the weeds.  It was glorious!  What is missing from the recording are the visuals of the nodding heads as Jared and Jill agreed with each other, and the looks when they got into the details. Every educator, teacher or trainer should listen to this episode. You can listen to the episode on TalkShoe or wherever you listen to your podcast episodes.
