    The chapter partnered with Resources Unlimited to offer members a comprehensive two-day DISC Certification train the trainer course held in September 2015. Hosted by Jeanette, Training Manager at Logix Credit Union, we had several excited participants. You could be the next host of a future certification course, and get a special deal as the venue host, click here if interested. Checkout those smiling facing in the graduation photo below.

    Happy participants shared: " Excellent workshop.  I took this session as a "tune up" for DiSC , as I had not used it in a few years.  Judy's session far surpassed the session I took 10 years ago or so!  Thank you so much."

    "Thanks Jeanette for sending the pic and for hosting the workshop. Meaningful class, awesome group of women, and flawless facilitator!"

    "Exceptionally well-done session.  Judy has tremendous insights regarding the assessment and usability of EverythingDiSC, as did the participants. I'll definitely be on the lookout for more wonderful experiences brought out by ATD!!"

    "Loved the workshop! Very enlightening."

    Special Renewal Offer and My Leave of Absence

    This month, my team and I would like to extend a special invitation to our former members to discover ATD-LA’s new event formats at a discounted rate. All lapsed members will receive an email with instructions to redeem this discounted rate.

    This year, we implemented many changes for our chapter, such as:

    • Updated chapter website
    • Short "TEDTalk" style chapter meeting
    • More networking time
    • Certification programs, such as DISC (09 24/25)
    • Monthly themes for events

    Increased membership numbers and the feedback we received showed us that our members like and appreciate these changes. We’d love to invite our former members back to experience our new event formats for themselves.

    On a personal note, September will be my last full month in my role as President. My husband and I welcome our first baby who will make his big entrance in early November. We’re very excited.

    I will start my ATD maternity leave in mid-October. Anthony Lewis, our 2015 President Elect, will take over chapter leadership a bit earlier than anticipated. Anthony and I have partnered in our efforts to lead the chapter and to implement change for the past year. I’m very glad to leave the chapter in his capable hands. I look forward to continuing my work with ATD-LA in 2016 in my role as Past President.

    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.

    A few more days, and we're officially in Summer! 

    We have two exciting events planned for this month: On June 18, we'll host our Half-Year Mixer. As we're already half way through 2015, we'd love to hear what you've done best so far and what challenges you encountered. Come join us at the June Mixer for an exchange of ideas and to make fresh connections.

    On June 19, ATD-LA proudly presents LA Learn Tech, a one-day mini conference on Learning Technologies. We have five engaging keynote speakers lined up to present on topics such as the psychology of learning, training program management, LMS administration, and the latest trends in e-learning.

    Meeting venues

    ATD-LA is looking for low/no cost venues for chapter meetings, mixers and, above all, our 2015 Holiday Party. If you know of any venues that might be a good fit, please let us know! We appreciate your help.

    My team and I are looking forward to connecting with you at one of our upcoming events.

    ATD-LA's Board of Directors has reviewed the Chapter Bylaws and proposes several changes. These changes reflect the new chapter name (ATD Los Angeles), as well as updates in the titles and number of Board positions and the protocol on how to conduct Board meetings.

    Please take a minute to read the document. The voting is going to take place during our upcoming Board meeting on 06/13/2015, which is open for all members to attend.

    Spring is finally here! For me, spring is a wonderful time to declutter and make room for new things.

    I love filling my mind with new ideas and inspirations - and May is a great time to do exactly that. ATD hosts its International Conference and Exhibition (ICE) on May 17-20. Renowned experts are going to talk about current trends in talent development. ATD-LA will keep you updated on the conference and help you find other professionals in your area who are going to attend.

    We are very interested in hearing your thoughts on current trends and developments in our profession. Throughout the month, we are going to have discussions with you, online and offline, to hear your opinion on this topic. What do you think is essential for us to know that probably wasn’t as important a few years ago? 

    For me, the first thing that comes to mind is probably Learning Technology. That's why I am excited about our June event highlight: ATD-LA's first L.A. Learn Tech Conference. We have five excellent speakers lined up to discuss different aspects of learning technology. If you ask yourself questions like ‘How do I get my LMS up to speed quickly?’, or ‘Should I incorporate mobile learning into our offering?’ this might be a great event for you. 

    Let's get inspired by fresh ideas and current trends. I'm looking forward to hear your thoughts.

    Happy May!

    Katrin Kaehler
    President
