I’ve known Kevin Kruse for many years. He and I met at a meeting of the Society for Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Trainers (now L-TEN) over a decade ago. Since that first meeting, we’ve co-presented on the topic of evidence-based training, worked together when he was a CEO of one of his many companies, collaborated on parts of his ground-breaking website/blog eLearning Guru and frequently meet up at speaking engagements.
Kevin is great, always friendly, focused and willing to share his knowledge and ideas. Since that time, Kevin was instrumental in the name change from SPBT to L-TEN (an organization which he headed for a number of years), he has become a New York Times Best Selling Author of the book We: How to Increase Performance and Profits through Full Engagement and has been speaking around the world on management topics to packed houses. He has recently authored a new book and has even started an interesting concept called LEADx. Kevin flipped my usual questions around and start with answering the question about giving advice to graduates going into the workforce.
