This post is inspired by Brian Washburn’s post A Word Cloud from 147 L&D Professionals 6 Word Memoirs. To quote him directly:
The post itself featured 6-word memoirs from 25 L&D professionals and there were a dozen or so comments with additional memoirs. I also posted this particular blog in the ATD LinkedIn discussion forum where more than 100 other L&D professionals added their own brief memoirs.
Here’s the word cloud (I created it in the shape of an apple since we’re all teachers in one way, shape or form):
If you recall, Brian said he got responses from over 100 L&D professionals from the ATD LinkedIn Forum. On May 8, 2014, ASTD changed their name to ATD.
ASSOCIATION FOR TALENT DEVELOPMENT
Can you find the word talent anywhere in the word cloud?
How long did it take you to spot development?
Did you see potential?
As far as I can tell, we think we are The Association of Learning and Performance.
And we believe our motto is People Helping Others.
What do you think about this word cloud?
