Need better results from training? I help you apply targeted,          scientifically-proven tactics that deliver needed results.

Too much training lacks the elements needed to learn, remember, and apply. Too much instruction actually makes it harder to learn! Not okay!


Here's the thing. Research points us to tactics that are proven and improve outcomes. Research may be hard to read (I love it but I’m weird) but the tactics are easy to apply. So, I apply research-driven tactics from training, cognition, educational psychology, information design, usability, and other fields. I explain and show these concise, actionable, and easy-to apply tactics in my books and courses. And of course, I use them myself! 

I can help you immediately begin to apply these tactics through my books and courses.


Here are a few comments about my books.


This is the book I wish I had back when I was recruiting and developing instructional writers. Based on science, her book presents clear and urgent advice.
