It seems to happen in a lot of workplaces. Someone is difficult. It can be a client, peer or (gulp) your boss. Or it could be that incommunicative guy in the mailroom, the gossipy fundraiser, the surly receptionist or the aggressive fill-in-the-blank that puts a crimp in your day.

As training practitioners we spend a great deal of time talking about how people learn and how to help people learn and how to use that learning to help organizations improve.

In this session we’ll look at what to narrate as well as how and when. The bottom line? To improve workplace learning and knowledge management we need to stop saying, “Tell me what you do” and start asking, “Please show me how you did that?"
