      Training & Development (or Learning & Development) is a subset of HR focused on improving group and individual performance through targeted initiatives to develop employee skills. In the past, L&D (as it is often abbreviated) was considered “nice to have” at a company; now, it is imperative. My background at the NBA was in Learning & Development, working with internal High Potential employees to skill up, as well as with individual NBA/WNBA teams to put L&D programs in place for their employees.

      Think about what you’ve learned, as well as your own experience as an employee. Then, answer these questions:

      • What development opportunities have you had in a job you’ve held?
      • Why do you think L&D is so important as organizations grow and change?
      • Why are performance appraisals important for employee morale?
      • Share an example of a positive or negative experience you have had with receiving feedback.
