My team and I are happy to be back after our short summer break in July!
This month, we’re going to take a look different aspects of Leadership and Leadership Development. Many of us have probably already designed and/or facilitated leadership development programs. In case you’re interested in further developing these skills, ATD National offers a great certificate program on August 17/18 in Los Angeles on Creating Leadership Development Programs.
But what about your own leadership skills? As Talent Development professionals, we’re expected to assume leadership positions in organizations, and to provide leadership to our clients.
We have two great learning events coming up this month that give you tools to strengthen your own leadership skills: Decision making and personal resilience. On August 20, TEDx presenter Dave Jensen will talk about research, as well as personal experience to help you apply a simple process to improve the quality of your decisions. Here’s a link to his engaging TEDx presentation on the Leader’s Paradox.
On August 29, our workshop on Personal Resilience will teach Participants the importance of resiliency and we will practice new techniques and behaviors that will enhance our ability to quickly recover from stressors and challenges and maintain positive functioning.
Last, but definitely not least: ATD-LA is looking for new Board members. The Call for Nominations is open until August 31. Please get in touch with us if you or someone you know is interested in getting involved.
I’m looking forward to connecting with you at one of our upcoming events.
Katrin Kaehler, ATD-LA President
