My 2010 Challenges, Plans, and Predictions January 30, 2010Posted by cjescribano in experiments, social networking, training industry.
In response to the Learning Circuits Big Question for January, here are my challenges, plans, and predictions for 2010:
My Biggest Challenges:
Same old challenges as always:
- Finding enough time to do everything I want to do
- Scheduling too much stuff so that even the fun feels stressful
But I just went to a Productivity workshop, and if I really am able to save 11 hours a week, I just may get some stuff done this year. Stay tuned.
My Major Plans:
For the past two years, just coincidentally, the projects I’ve worked on have all been in leadership development. Somehow, magically, my path has led me in that direction. So, this year, I’m going with it. I will continue to work on the Defense Senior Leader Development Program. In addition, I’m going to read, research, and compile knowledge on leadership development. Hopefully, this will give me a solid foundation from which to write articles and give presentations.
Also, I want to read more this year. As a starting point, I’m going to try to speed read Newsweek every week and Fast Company every month. And for fun, read the novels that my friends recommend.
Based on what I’ve seen in various blogs and publications, I predict that we will see greater integration of social media into blended learning and e-learning products. Also, this adoption of technology will continue the move away from event-based learning toward more just-in-time learning. Learning professionals need to broaden their skill set to include an understanding of all the new technologies and how they can be used to help people perform more effectively.
