Do you want to share your story?

In a world where traditional L&D practices have become a bit, well, outdated and ineffective, it's high time for a change. You see, the days of just managing training and turning boring PowerPoint presentations into eLearning modules are behind us. We truly believe that L&D professionals and teams are capable of so much more. That's where our blog comes in. We're on a mission to explore and celebrate modern L&D practices that not only inspire but also make a real impact on how L&D pros do their thing. We're all about practices that go beyond ordinary and aim for the extraordinary.

What We're Looking for in an Article:

1. Authenticity: Keep it real, folks! Share your experiences and insights straight from the heart. We want your article to be relatable and down-to-earth.
2. Evidence: Back up your ideas with solid proof. We love articles that are well-researched and can stand up to scrutiny. Give our readers something substantial to sink their teeth into.
3. Usefulness: Make it practical. Explain how your insights can be put into action in the real world. We want our readers to walk away with something they can use.
4. Simplicity: No need to complicate things. Keep it simple and straightforward. If you can explain a complex idea in an easy-to-understand way, that's golden.
5. Expertise: Show that you know your stuff. Share your knowledge, examples, frameworks, or your own unique ideas that prove you're an expert in the field.

A Note on the Process:

- Outline Review: We like to stay efficient. We'll ask for an outline upfront to make sure your article fits with our blog's vibe. It's a win-win that saves everyone time.
- Multiple Revisions: We're all about quality. Expect a few rounds of revisions to make your article shine. We want it to be the best it can be.
- Headline Decision: We'll have the final say on the headline. Our goal is to make sure it grabs attention and speaks to a wide audience.
- Use of AI: We get that AI can be helpful. If you're using it, just let us know where and how it fits into your article. Transparency is key.

With these friendly and straightforward guidelines, we're here to create a space where modern L&D practices can shine, inspire, and make a difference. We're excited to have you on board, and we can't wait to see what you'll bring to the table!
