Guy Wallace has worked diligently to video-capture the diverse range of HPT researchers, scholars, practitioners, and authors. His stewardship has ensured that these voices are not forgotten. For Wallace, I’m sure that thousands of hours dedicated to curating the insights into helping organizations to strengthen human performance is a labor of love.
In the first iterative collection process, Wallace developed the practitioner and legacy series:
HPT Practitioner Video Series (2008-2018) – short 2-10 minutes, following a script. Intended to show the diversity of HPT Practices and HPT Practitioners.
HPT Legacy Video Series (2008-2018) – longer 15-40+ minutes, interviews also following a script, with added stories of other NSPI/ ISPI’ers from the earlier days of the Society. Intended to show the diversity of HPT Practices and HPT Practitioners, and to capture the stories of the people who influenced us.
Now Wallace has circled back to capture those he missed but even recapture previously recorded voices using in-person and Skype recordings:
HPT Video Series (2019+) – is a continuation of the first two types of videos in this series, but with less focus on capturing NSPI/ISPI members – and expanding out to any and all who use Evidence-Based Practices in Performance Improvement.
Because he still actively teaches at conferences and travels to organizations, Thiagi continues to be well-known in the HPT and Learning & Development communities. With the substantial turnover in the fields, new and future practitioners will eventually say, “Who is Thiagi?” or even attempt to pronounce “Sivasailam Thiagarajan.” Now we can share the Thiagi videos.
You can find the list of these videos on HPT Treasures on the following page: https://hpttreasures.wordpress.com/hpt-practitioner-videos.
