| || Volunteer Appreciation Week|
Dear I4PL Colleagues,
This week, Canadians recognize volunteerism across the country and it's an important reminder that we have incredible legions of volunteers who make the heart of I4PL beat. Our beloved volunteers take part in initiatives that range from leading Chapters and sitting on the Board of Directors to undertaking projects small and large that elevate the performance and learning community.
This year, we will be recognizing volunteers by issuing digital badges that can be added to a LinkedIn profile, email signature and shared on social media. We see firsthand that volunteers raise each other up as well as I4PL as a whole, benefitting all of us; a rising tide lifts all boats.
My sincerest gratitude to all who contribute to I4PL.

| || One Day Left to Contribute to the Thought Exchange!|
We are reminding members to take part in a week-long, interactive discussion on Thought Exchange, April 4th-11th. Thought Exchange is a B.C. start-up that has created software for real-time and asynchronous interaction among large groups, allowing them to up-vote and down-vote ideas thrown out by group members, while remaining anonymous. It has been used for community consultation, to get feedback from employee levels that might otherwise be shy to share their real thoughts, and for 360 processes. Board directors, Chapter leaders and the I4PL members were invited to participate in an exchange that flows through three steps:
1. Share — answer open-ended questions about the I4PL Purpose and how we embody that through our actions
2. Star — review ideas from other stakeholders and rate the ideas you like best
3. Discover — learn what is important to the community as a whole
I4PL Members — if you haven't logged in and need the link, please email us here.

| || Performance and Learning in the News|
An eLearning grading scale might not be the first thing you consider when designing your online training strategy. However, it's a fantastic motivator and a great way for corporate learners to assess their own performance. We know that simply completing an online training course is not enough. There's very little satisfaction in that, for a start. It's unlikely to make a corporate learner want to pick up the next module and do their best. Corporate learners want to aim towards a learning goal and see how far they have come given all their time and effort.
Employers are well aware that employees are key to the future of their enterprises. For employees' true potential at work to be unlocked, however, they must be willing to look forward — potentially beyond the company. A growth mindset puts employees in charge of their career trajectories and can help prepare both workers and employers for a business climate where change is the only constant. Learning leaders play a key role in helping employees realize their value to themselves and the business by teaching how a growth mindset drives decision making, risk taking and career pathing.
Millennials have grown up with everything personalized, from ringtones to news feeds, music selections and coffee orders. So in the workplace, their preference for learning styles often revolves around a system that is catered to them. A Bridge study showed more than 85 per cent of millennials prefer to stay and grow within a company.
Leadership development efforts typically begin by honouring the ancient Greek exhortation to know thyself. Virtually all leadership development programs start with a self-assessment or personal reflection activity. However, these assessments can lead to a bias that places people in limiting boxes. The self may be far more fluid than has been assumed, and we may have paid too little attention to organizational culture as a powerful molding influence on leadership development.
So many businesses jump into buying a learning management system without a plan or understanding of what they need from it and how it can support their training. An LMS is a software system designed to align all of your training initiatives in one place. It allows businesses to organize, automate and track the key aspects of a training program.
