Learning and development community
This is our community for professional colleagues, partners and other enthusiasts with who we share various interests around LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT, and the argument that people are the greatest asset any organised community can have. We hope to create a vibrant community of progressive thinkers committed to developing human resource capacity through education, training and substantive attitude change. Please feel welcome to share your thoughts in the various discussions of interest and let's make the journey together. See you soon; and "let us never fear to think".

Henry Ford, (1863 - 1947) many years into running FORD, a company he set up from scratch, said that "the only thing worse than training your employees and having them leave is NOT training them and having them stay".
Apart from making work a joyous experience, an organisation's commitment to learning and development determines the extent to which its people benefit the business; the business' ability to take advantage of opportunities, and how effectively it deals with various challenges as they come.
This is the stuff we hope to engage about here.
Before you ask a question or begin a discussion however - please make sure to search for a similar question or discussion. You can search these by their title or tags. It is also okay to answer your own question, and it is, obviously, also expected you will participate in discussions that you start, without necessarily taking a leadership or moderator role.
Please avoid asking questions or raising discussions that are not relevant to this community.
Try to ask questions, give answers, or make discussion contributions in a way that you are sure will make us all better people. We depend on each other for this.
To prevent your questions and other contributions from being flagged and possibly removed, avoid asking questions or making contributions that are uniquely subjective, emotive, or otherwise offensive.
As much as possible, answers should not comment on other answers. Instead, add your own comment or answer to the on-going discussion.
If you wish to include a link to external content, don't just paste the link. Instead, give context and overview to what the link is about even if it's just a copy/paste. Links are welcome, but should be complementary to answers, comments and discussions; they should be references for further or additional reading.
When a question or answer is upvoted, the user who posted them will gain some points, which are called "karma points". These points serve as a rough measure of the community trust to him/her. Various moderation tasks are gradually assigned to users based on those points.
For example, if you ask an interesting question or give a helpful answer, your input will be upvoted. On the other hand if the answer is misleading - it will be downvoted. Each vote in favor will generate 10 points, each vote against will subtract 10 points. There is a limit of 200 points that can be accumulated for a question or answer per day. The table given at the end explains reputation point requirements for each type of moderation task.
Not just anyone can do this. The goal of forum is create a relevant knowledge perspectives around what is important for users.
