    Learn How to Build Agile Teams Where Relationships Thrive

    For high achievers, building collaborative relationships is priority one. In-person or dispersed, they understand that members of their teams can go farther together than they can alone. The good news: you too can leverage the power of relationships and drive results.

    Prework: Before the Workshop

    Take the SDI 2.0 assessment — a $125-dollar value!

    Relationships Intelligence is powered by the Strength Deployment Inventory 2.0 (SDI 2.0). This award-winning, scientifically validated assessment provides four views of a person. It reveals why they do what they do, and how they relate to others. Experiencing the SDI 2.0 assessment for yourself and being able to review your unique results during the workshop will be the key to unleashing relationship intelligence for you and your teams.

    What You Will Learn During the Workshop:
    • How to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of individual motives and strengths through your SDI 2.0 results
    • The ability to tailor communication based on individual motives and preferences
    • Understand diverse personalities and how they can trigger conflict
    • Discover your strengths and deploy them at the right time for the right reason for greater effectiveness

    Who Should Attend This Workshop?

    This workshop is for leaders and team members who want to learn how to:
    • Empower your team to see the early signs of conflict and resolve it
    • Build a team that can see all sides of an issue, make timely decisions, and deliver results
    • Communicate with clarity to all different personality types
    • Help your team build resilient relationships—with or without in-person interaction
    • Results

    The pace of change in many organizations often exceeds the speed of learning and development teams. Customers want, (and need), learning solutions deployed in days or weeks rather than months or years. In these situations, instructional design processes, including iterative and agile approaches, are often viewed as a hindrance to deploying content. This interactive session will include ways to apply learning science and build great learning experiences while avoiding perceptions of getting bogged down in the instructional design process.

    What Attendees Will Learn from the Session:

    • Identify how to obtain the minimum information necessary to build great learning solutions
    • Apple techniques to streamline the design process while focusing on the business goals and risk management
    • Integrate change management into your learning design considerations
    • Handle common challenges that impede delivering a great learning experience

    Presenter

    Dr. Gary Rauchfuss has over 2 decades of experience in instructional design and is a program manager and instructional designer in the Federal government, focused on the application of learning science to modernize workforce development programs. Since 1999, he has held diverse public and private sector instructional design and learning management positions. Gary also serves as a lecturer in the Master’s in Instructional Science and Technology program at California State University Monterey Bay. He also serves as an advisory board member for the Master of Education in Learning Design and Technology program at the USC Rossier School of Education. Gary holds a PhD in Education from Capella University, and a MS in Education from the Old Dominion University.

    What’s the difference between "plans" and "planning"?
     
    Dwight Eisenhower said that one of these is “worthless,” while the other is “everything.” Are you confident you know which is which? If you’re uncertain, that means you’re like most people, and that also means this webinar is for you.
     
    Come join award-winning training designer and author Scott Provence as he explores how to analyze and develop training material for complex, ever-changing organizations. Participate in hands-on activities as you learn a brand-new way to assess training needs and spark communication throughout all levels of your organization. You’ll leave with a free and ready-to-use template for successfully planning the next big development initiative for your teams.
     
    Perfect for designers, trainers, and HR leaders, this session will show you how a simple 30-minute exercise can help your organization calibrate its Learning and Development priorities, even when those priorities are constantly changing.
     
    Participants Will Learn:
    • Why training needs analyses often fail to make it past the planning stages
    • Why stakeholders and learners often disagree with what a team’s biggest challenge is
    • How to tell the difference between simple, complex, and chaotic tasks
    • How to tell the difference between a need best solved with training versus a need best solved by systemic change
    • How a 30-minute exercise can jump-start conversations and collaboration throughout an organization

    Wouldn’t it be great to know how to introduce a gaming dimension into the corporate training programs you design or deliver? What would it look like to include game elements such as points, levels, challenges, rewards, and Easter eggs to drive participation, engagement, retention, and to achieve a measurable ROI?

    This hands-on, LIVE webinar takes you through the 5-step process of gamifying a training program. You’ll learn how to:

    • Define your measurable business objectives and determine how Gamification will help you to achieve your objectives
    • Weave analogies and stories to make the training stickable – so that players remember facts and transfer skills to real world scenarios
    • Create the right mix of ingredients and next steps in your learning activities to allow the participants to acquire knowledge and skill
    • Identify the game elements (points, badges, leaderboards, etc.) and game mechanics (chance, competition, collaboration, rewards, etc.) you will use
    • Construct a consistent, attractive - even charming and captivating - cohesiveness that ties the entire project together
    • Answer the question:  Is it fun?

    Gamification of real-world training and development is a powerful technique which can motivate people and help generate loyalty to your organization, its products, and its message. At its core, Gamification is about finding the fun in the things that we have to do.

    When learning is fun, people remember, apply, and return to the learning.

    About the presenter:

    Jonathan Peters, Ph.D. is an international professional keynote speaker, trainer, author, and copywriter. He believes that change is inevitable, adaption is vital, but success is optional. He works with those who pursue the option of success.

    For instance, his book, Cavemen Can't Market, shows how some companies continue club prospects with their pitches. They fail to realize that in the current era, consumers are in charge. Consumers, sales teams, employees – anyone we're trying to reach – must now be "wooed."

    Communication has been core to Jonathan's pursuits, first as a writer and professor, and later as a marketer and professional speaker. His current pursuits center on how leaders, marketers, and salespeople can utilize persuasive elements and new technologies to not only inspire, but also to compel people to action.

    His entertaining, energetic, edgy, and enlightening style not only makes learning fun and inspiring, but also memorable and applicable.
