L&D Cartoon – Too Busy To Learn

Learning and Development Cartoon - Too Busy To Learn - L and D Generous

Does your organisation suffer from being ‘Too busy to get better’?

Ok, once again, it’s the end of the week, so it’s time to lighten the mood with a Learning and Development ‘Friday Funny’.

In fairness, this one isn’t that funny at all (especially as I suspect that many of you probably bang your heads on the wall trying to get people, from front-line to C-suite, to engage in Learning and Development initiatives, only to complain that they/their team/the organisation isn’t performing at its best), but it does quite nicely illustrate how Continue reading

L&D Cartoon – You can’t measure everyone’s capability the same way!

Learning and Development Cartoons - Not everyone can be measured the same way - L and D Generous

You can’t measure everyone’s capability the same way!

Ok, it’s the end of the week, so it’s time to lighten the mood again with a Learning and Development ‘Friday Funny’.

This one is an oldie but without doubt one of my all-time-favourites, beautifully illustrating how you just can’t apply the same system of capability measurement and be sure that you’ll get a fair or accurate result.

It’s just a shame that, Continue reading

Learning & Development Cartoon: Teaching vs Learning

Ok, it’s the end of the week again, so it’s time for another Learning and Development related ‘Friday Funny’ before we all break for the weekend.

Here’s a good one that quite nicely illustrates the difference between teaching and learning and that I’m sure my fellow Learning & Development tragics will appreciate.

I’m afraid I can’t credit the artist as he or she didn’t sign their work – my thanks anyway to the mystery cartoonist.

Learning & Development Bingo

Learning and Development Bingo Card - L and D Generous

The lighter side of Learning and Development…

It’s been a while since I posted something on the light-hearted side, so here’s my Learning & Development version of ‘Board-Room-Bingo’.

The next time you have a long Learning and Development related meeting organised, grab your unique L&D Generous bingo card and let the hilarity commence!

I’ve tried to include as many of the most common (and somewhat cliched) L&D terms I can think of, including SME, Learning Outcomes, Balanced Scorecard, Skills Needs Analysis, Adult Learning Principles, etc. However, I’m sure I’ve missed out LOADS of obvious ones so, if you can think of any, please add them in the comments below.
