Tonight Pat Wagner joined us again. Pat is “closing up one tent in order to open up another.” We’re grateful that she came back to impart more wisdom. Pat was joined by Jill Hurst-Wahl, Paul Signorelli, Diane Huckabay, and Maurice Coleman.
Pat is an educator, not a fixer. She began with a story about a situation that was presented to her which required “training.” When she looked into the situation, she found one where the management had tolerated bad behavior which training would not fix. She is pro accountability. If an organization is not willing to be accountable, it will continue to have the same problems.
Pat, in her storytelling, connected to the conversation we had started early in the show about diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, acceptance, and belonging. That thread of diversity ran through the entire show!
We want to thank TalkShoe for the background noise that they added in. It was like being on an old-fashioned party line, where two conversations were overlapping. Thankfully, we were all good humored about. We also played a game of telephone because Pat could not hear Maurice. Ah…technology!
Remember you can listen to T is for Training on the TalkShoe website or wherever you get your podcast episodes.
Addendum (05/08/2022): Here is a resource that Pat mentioned during our conversation: List of Learning Theories compiled by Richard Culatta.
