Onboarding, give it a year!

By Henriette Kloots | 25 August 2019

I have to warn you, before you start reading this. It is not just about learning. It is also about my first year as a mum. But just to be clear, it is not a blog about being a mum. There are a lot of those out there, and I am not that type. It…

How to utilise the L&D playground

By Henriette Kloots | 9 May 2019

I have been doing extensive thinking around the success and failure of learning programs. Of course we can never allocate failure or success to one particular factor. I think there is an L&D playground with so many factors to take into account, that this in itself might be the reason for some failure of learning…

Stop saying your employee with burn-out is an incident

By Henriette Kloots | 30 November 2018

I visit a lot of organizations throughout the year. I like to do that, because it always gives me insights on trends within organizations. About what things are specific for them and what are issues every organization is struggling with. Think about digital transformation, more prototyping ways of working and what are we going to…

The power of a training design

By Henriette Kloots | 27 September 2018

2 weeks ago I attended a very special training program. A whole weekend, or actually 3 days, no phone, no smartwatch (Yes…) 50 strangers, 2 trainers and more importantly no idea what to expect. For years friends have encouraged me to go to “Be The Change”, in the Netherlands famous for the tv show “Over…

Pink Coat a year down the line

By Henriette Kloots | 27 September 2018

21st October 2016 Pink Coat’s 1 year anniversary has led to a lot of congratulations and amazingly sweet messages. Thank you so much for that! According to you guys the first year has been as success. That’s my assumption based on your reactions. And they made me blush. I hadn’t realized it that much to…

Two words for L&D: Analysis and self development

By Henriette Kloots | 27 September 2018

2016 has been an interesting year for the world of Learning and Development. We have seen major changes in the workplace of the L&D industry, more and more people starting their own business, independent consultants going back on the pay roll, more and more technology providers emerging and people struggling to find their way in…

Learning 2017: Blog 1. Key take aways.

By Henriette Kloots | 27 September 2018

Keep things short and simple is the message. We don’t read lengthy articles and watch video’s longer than 30 seconds. Unless it truly touches our intrinsic motivation. With that in mind I have cut my complete set of notes from Learning 2017 into 5 blogs. This first one is about my 4 take aways. Learning…

Learning 2017: Blog 2. Smart people saying smart things at Learning 2017

By Henriette Kloots | 27 September 2018

Sometimes quotes and oneliners of speakers are enough to get a lot out of. I always get inspired by specific things people say. Whether there very conscious of choosing their words like Michelle Obama or whether they also like to try out new things like Julian Stodd, words are always somehow chosen in the brain…

Pink Coat needed a breath of fresh air

By Henriette Kloots | 27 September 2018

2017 was quite the year… First of all, for me personally as I became a mum. Because of my leave I have had something I never had in my life. 3 weeks of doing nothing, and being unable to do anything. And then 3 months of not working. That gives you time to reflect. After…
