Myths, publishers, and confusion

Clark Quinn

On twitter the other day, I was asked how I could on one hand rail against myths, and on the other work with orgs who either sell or promote DiSC and MBTI. The problem, it appears, was a perception that I’m deeply involved with orgs that perpetuate the problem. I thought I’d try to clarify all this, and make sense of myths, publishers and confusion.

Let’s be honest — so-called “rapid” authoring tools aren’t really rapid at all.

That’s because I want to see if what I’m trying to say comes across better in speaking than in writing.

An L&D Challenge?

Clark Quinn

A colleague and friend posted about masks, and I weighed in. He suggested that it’s really a learning issue. I’m not sure I agree, but I thought it might be interesting to explore.

Audio blog #2

Doc Searls

[link]. Yesterday’s audio blog post (again, not a podcast—I already do two of those ) had 81 visits during that day and another couple dozen this morning. It also got one response on Facebook, a few on Twitter and a couple by email and other channels.
