About me, in my words
I have worked as a training consultant and instructional designer to business and industry for more than 30 years—even before “instructional designer” was a field of study or a job title, I was doing it. I began as a script writer in the non-broadcast video arena and very quickly began to receive requests from companies for assistance with training development.
The most important thing I have learned about workforce training is...
that thorough analysis of a problem, including motivational issues, is critical. Training related to performance problems may not be the answer, or the only answer. A good consultant seeks to identify and address all factors that impinge on workforce productivity. I believe this approach works in harmony with good educational design, and is integral to advocating for my clients and the workforce audience.
If I were not an instructional designer, I would probably...
be a political speech writer, organizer, or behind-the-scenes communicator—because I am impatient for change.
