If so, or even if you attended and would like a refresher, the ATD Cascadia Chapter July meeting is your chance to learn about some fascinating key take-aways.

    With such topics as instructional design, learning science, leadership development, and talent strategies, you can expect to explore plenty of intriguing subjects with our panel. And, we’ll dive deeper into these areas during break-out discussions. 

    Come sharpen your professional toolkit in our welcoming community. We hope to see you there!

    Overview

    Articulate Storyline is an eLearning authoring tool that’s simple enough for beginners, but powerful enough for experts. Storyline allows you to create interactive and professional-looking eLearning courses that can be published to web servers, video servers, and/or SCORM-compliant Learning Management Systems.

    Performance Consulting – Partnering to Create Lasting Results

    This is a 2 day course July 23rd and July 30th.  When you register here you are registering for both days. 

    Intended Audience

    • Learning and HR professionals interested in shifting their work from a solutions focus to a results focus.

    • External consultants who would like a refresher and who seek lasting outcomes from their work.

    • Managers and anyone else who is frustrated with the lack of long-term results many initiatives deliver.


    Overview

    Have you ever found yourself working on a training initiative when you knew it was unlikely to solve the real problem?  Perhaps you’ve heard about the importance of being a strategic partner “to the business” but are unsure what exactly that means or how to go about it.  Have you overheard your internal or external clients express frustration that a training program “didn’t work”?

    When business leaders come to L&D for help, they often have a solution in mind – often times, it’s the wrong or incomplete solution.  In this two-session workshop, Dana Pratt will guide you through a process of evaluating requests, identifying business and performance needs, and building long-term client relationships that can help you shift away from “order taking” and toward a proactive approach that will make you a valued partner in driving positive business outcomes.

    Objectives

    Day One: Performance Consulting – It’s About the Business– By the end of the first session, you will be able to:

    • Define Performance Consulting and articulate the difference between the role of the client and the role of the consultant

    • Differentiate between transactional, tactical and strategic work and determine whether a situation requires a strategic or tactical response.

    • Identify business, performance, work environment and skill/capability needs.

    • Evaluate the opportunity gap by determining the SHOULD BE and AS IS state for business and performance goals.

    • Explore causes of performance gaps or barriers to improvement.

     Day Two: Performance Consulting – It’s About the Relationship – By the end of the second session, you will be able to:

    • Articulate a three-part approach to building client relationships and commit to action steps to enhance effectiveness.

    • Use powerful questions to influence client decisions.

    • Prepare for and manage intake meetings

    • Proactively identify strategic opportunities

    • Form action plans that support application of the skills and concepts shared in the workshop.

    Creative Problem Solving for T&D Professionals 

    Intended Audience

    • Learning professionals seeking to re-charge their creative energy

    • Training team members who seek to address strategic problems 

    • Any individual who will benefit from learning and applying strategic thinking and innovation skills in their role

    Overview

    Are you looking for new ways to solve problems and issues in your organization? Are you frustrated by mandates to “Think outside the box” that fail to provide the space, resources, and support to discover your original ideas?

    For T&D to serve as a strategic partner, it’s necessary to think beyond obvious solutions. Businesses easily get stuck thinking “We’ve always done it this way.” We tend to think of innovation as a magical property or some inspired idea. Or that only certain individuals have the gift, and thereby get to innovate for the rest of us. However, innovation rarely happens by accident.

    During this workshop, D.J. Netz will offer alternatives (traditional and unorthodox), best practices, and frameworks for developing fresh approaches to solving pernicious problems and addressing unmet needs. Along the way, he’ll share his experiences with collaboration, getting buy-in, and generating useful and unusual ideas that stand out.


    Objectives

    During this workshop, participants will have an opportunity to:

    • Interact with a robust set of strategic and innovative thinking tools 
    • Explore methods for driving innovative thinking within their organizations 
    • Identify actions to stretch their personal creativity


    About the Facilitator

    D.J. Netz is a senior instructional designer for GP Strategies. For thirty years, D.J. has conducted needs analysis and consultation for mid-size and large organizations, crafting solutions that balance technology with scalability. Along the way, he has developed innovative and popular courses for critical thinking, leadership, and sales training in classroom and online environments.

    He is a two-time Brandon Hall award winner and has served organizations such as General Electric, Gulfstream, Comcast, Sony PlayStation, Facebook, SAP, and Intel. He teaches courses on corporate training at Portland State University, and he is the past president of the ATD-Cascadia Chapter. D.J. has a Master’s degree in adult education, and he has been certified in Six Sigma problem solving by the American Society for Quality.
