3 - Training, Performance, Social Workshop Notes - Harold Jarche
The workshops are designed to give just enough structure, without constraining personal and social learning. We curate what we think are the essential resources on a topic and also provide additional links and resources for those who are interested.

For those attending the workshops, the more they give, the more they get.

Even for the most technically specialized individual, it would be naive to think he or she wouldn’t derive some benefit from interacting with others online.
I’m part of a community. When I first started blogging, no one read my blog because I hadn’t told anyone about it. Then I linked to another blogger in one of my posts and she shared it with her readers. Then everything just snowballed. Sure, my blog is tiny, but I really feel like a part of a community. We can disagree, support one another, and go off on tangents from each other’s posts.
