Message from Will Thalheimer
Dedicated to empowering learning professionals
to get the most from learning
Hello Everyone! Welcome! This is Will Thalheimer and this website is Work-Learning Research, the central location from where I do consulting and share research-inspired articles, advice, and other practical content. It is a labor of love and also the way I make a living.
To my fellow learning professionals, let me say thank you for your interest in my work! Over the years, as I hear what you are doing with the kernels of my work, I feel blessed and inspired!
Recently, after some recent soul-searching, I realized, more than ever, how I want to spend my work time. I want to empower us as learning professionals to get the most from learning.
With that in mind, I’ve begun rebuilding the website to help you better find what you need. Stay tuned! And of course, consider signing up for MY newsletter, and feel free to contact me through the Contact Page.
