When senior executives ask you to provide training, do you take a note of what they want or challenge them to define the problem? In this week's episode of the GoodPractice Podcast, Australian learning performance architect Con Sotidis joins GoodPractice CEO Peter Casebow to discuss the new role of L&D professionals.

We'll be speaking about asking difficult questions, building credibility, and what to do when 'training' isn't the answer.

Then, in part two, we discuss Con's technique for smart curation. If we're all going to act as curators, both personally and professionally, how do we make sure our content is reliable?
