Exploring the Possibilities of Real-Time Collaboration in a Virtual Landscape
We don’t teach content; we teach people. That’s why it’s time to start focusing on context. People are drowning in all of the free content that is available since the Internet arrived in 1995. It’s time for an update: Make Training A Want To (Not A Have To) gives you the insight and tools to reverse engineer the ultimate training in order to facilitate learning experiences that create measurable results with your people and compelling reasons to apply the learning. This changes everything.
Today’s training has to be energizing, interactive, fun, and full of valuable content, too! But too many trainers still stand behind a podium—a 20th century practice. It’s time for an update: this experience gives you the insight and tools to help design trainings that create lasting impact with your learners. Content is the loser here; because it’s NOT about “what” people learn. This is about becoming a context expert. Discover training practices that go against standard practice.
You'll walk away with critical and practical strategies to change the learning dynamic:
· Engage learners with our unique and highly-researched Learn-Say-Do-Reflect Model to increase engagement, retention, and fun.
· Improve your training atmosphere, increase retention to 90%, and create a consistent system for all trainers and facilitators to do the same.
· Be a part of the art and science to make training fun again.
· Learn how to become a strategic partner and performance consultant for your organization, not just a trainer.
If you are tired or bored with ineffective training formats, attend this session to transform any training session into an easy-to-apply and unforgettable experience, which will make you look like a hero!

Join L&D Philadelphia & the Meet the Author Series run by local training guru Theresa Hummel-Krallinger for her monthly "Meet the Author" at the Pyramid Club of Philadelphia. This month, David Bookbiner, will join us for a discussion & meet & greet on his book - the NEW ROI (Return on Individuals). More information to come soon!
Ask anyone from the CEO to the shipping clerk about the organization's most valuable asset, and you'll get the same answer: "The people!" However, when it comes to the valuation of that organization, especially in terms of intangible assets, items like patents and trademarks wind up seeming to be more valuable. How can that be? Simple: They're more quantifiable.
In The NEW ROI: Return on Individuals, David delves into placing a more quantifiable value on the human capital asset - the most valuable asset in every organization. Additionally, he explores universal ways to promote even greater workforce value including creating difference makers, increasing employee success, improving happiness, reducing toxic employees, generating innovation by building trust, embracing and improving corporate culture, and much more.
