The Future of Training and Development

While attending the ASTD International Conference and Expo in Dallas in May 2013, I was interviewed thanks to TrainingPros. I was grateful for the opportunity and humbled by the experience. 
Key takeaways:
- Focus on your strengths.
- Attend the tracks and the expo for connections and inspiration.
- Spend time in the business.  Understand your business partners' needs and pain points.
- Leverage technology - use it yourself before trying it in the professional arena.
- Collaborate with other Training and Development professionals as much as possible.
- Apply new learnings as quickly as possible.

How awesome to be interviewed. Couldn't agree more about spending time in the business. The unfortunate part is that we often view that opportunity as an inconvenience, or sub par, assignment until we are a few years on the other side of the experience. As L&D professionals we've got to get in there and gain some street cred!

I couldn't agree more, Lauren! I hope you're getting a lot of operational exposure in your new role. I'd love to hear what you've learned so far.

These are amazing and great tips but I feel that they are too general and vast to cover. I feel that there could have been more specific dvice and the topic could have been expanded.
