    How a 'Putting People First' Culture Drives Business Results

    Program Description:  

    Hal Rosenbluth said it best in the title of his best-selling book, The Customer Comes Second: Put Your People First and Watch 'em Kick Butt.  Rosenbluth  pioneered the concept that when companies care about their employees those employees care about the customers, which in turn drives high performance in companies.  The concept of servant leadership also puts employees first.  In the book, The Bridge to Growth: How Servant Leaders Achieve Better Results and Why It Matters Now More Than Ever, author Jude Rake points to research that supports the principle of Putting People First as a means to achieve sustainable business results.  Even most companies espouse in their annual report that their employees are their most important asset.  Yet, as intuitive as this principle is, why isn't it a more common practice?

    At this Leadership & OD SIG meeting, we will hear from 3 dynamic CEOs – Joel Anderson (Five Below), Dan Calista (Vynamic), and Hal Rosenbluth (New Ocean Health Solutions) who truly believe in creating a "putting people first" culture, what that culture looks like, how it drives business results, and what they have done to create such a culture.

    As a result of this program, we hope you will be inspired by the work of these dynamic CEOs and leave with some ideas that you can apply in your current organization to create a 'putting people first' culture or enhance your existing culture which, in turn, will enable the organization to achieve its goals.

    We will also have ample opportunity for an interactive discussion through a question and answer period.

    Commuting to an office, settling into the same old cubicle, and cranking out the work 9 to 5? Not so much the default any more. More and more of us are coworking – and “coworking spaces” are definitely not all the same. What does “coworking” mean? What are the different experiences found in the places that offer what they call coworking? What is the role of community?

    PANMA presents a panel discussion of this important phenomenon as it happens in our area. You’ll hear from:

    • Alex Hillman, co-founder of Independents Hall, better known as IndyHall, and Anaia Daigle, IndyHall Tummler
    • Nick Winkler, founder, Work2gether
    • An additional space, TBA!

    While these places have some common characteristics – shared desks, various amenities, access to wifi/printers/conference rooms – are they really all alike, with differences only in style? And if they different, what makes them different? Get the perspectives and insights of people operating 3 of the Philadelphia area’s coworking spaces and come away with some new insights of your own.

    Western society lauds extraverted leaders and their accomplishments. However, introverts make great contributions and can be effective leaders, too. As technical communicators, many of us are introverts or work with a lot of introverts. As introverts, we may not believe or recognize that we have innate abilities that can provide a foundation for strong leadership skills, and we certainly don’t seem like the extraverted leaders that are the norm in Western society. Introverts possess a quiet confidence that commands respect. When we leverage the innate strengths of introverts; analytical skills, ability to think outside the box, and strong powers of concentration, we gain recognition as a leader and influencer. Attendees will:

    Discover general and specific insights gained from personality and temperament typing

    • Understand what drives their co-workers
    • Identity their strengths and weaknesses
    • Learn how to harness their innate skills
    • Start their leadership journey

    Attendees will benefit most from the presentation if they know their Myers-Briggs/temperament profile in advance. I recommend taking the tests at humanmetrics.com and keirsey.com before attending.

    We'll send the GoToMeeting link to registrants right before the event.

    Intended Audience

    This program is for L&D and HR professionals interested in using gamification to improve their learning and training programs.


    Spend a day learning from the #1 rated Gamification Guru Monica Cornetti and become a better, higher-rated, and considerably more effective trainer, teacher, instructional designer, or human resource professional!

    This program is like no conference or workshop you’ve attended. The Sententia Gamification LIVE Certification is a complete immersion experience designed to leave you creatively inspired and technically masterful.

    • Be prepared to come and PLAY FULL OUT for the entire day to dramatically improve your learning and development results and significantly increase your credibility and influence and a professional.
    • Simply defined, gamification uses game mechanics and rewards for non-game applications in order to increase engagement, transfer knowledge, and create loyalty. Gamification is about motivational design, and is the process of using game mechanics and game thinking in non-gaming contexts to engage users and to solve problems.
    • Gamification is founded in the fundamentals of human psychology and behavioral science, and rests on three primary factors: motivation, ability level, and triggers.
    • Gamification is not about simply rewarding points and badges, but rather understanding and influencing the human behaviors which companies want to encourage among their employees and customers. Gamification includes a robust set of game mechanics including chance, competition, collaboration, knowledge sharing, badges, points, leaderboards, status, achievement, exploration, teamwork, and so much more.


    At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

    • Understand how key concepts found in behavioral psychology and game design can increase learning and engagement.
    • Have a five-part process for gamifying a learning program.
    • Demonstrate a return on investment for your gamified learning program.
    • Takeaways for Participants
    • Game the System™ “game board” of the 30 necessary steps for creating successfully gamified learning programs
    • All handouts and ancillary tools

    Sententia Level 1 Apprentice Certificate for attending the seminar and one upon completion of a case study for framing for each registrant (will occur after completion of the certification program and analysis and feedback of a case study under the supervision of Monica Cornetti)

    Sententia Level 1 Apprentice digital badges with metadata about the program and work completed for certification for employers, recruiters, and potential clients

    Provide HRCI, SHRM and ATD recertification credit documentation for each registrant

    Moment of Truth: Not all business professionals get access to unlimited budgets. Okay, no one really does. Somewhere, sometime, we all end up searching for a tool or resource to help us get the job done. Not all tools, though, bring the same value. And every job requires a different tool or toolkit. So where can we find the best free or low-cost resources to help us achieve our goals? Well, we could spend countless hours searching on the internet. Or posting in vein on LinkedIn. But wouldn't it be awesome to find things from our peers - to hear and see what others use when their budgets run dry?

    Join the Learning & Development professionals for this one of a kind event in November. Open mic time! Bring your favorite tool(s) and get 5-10 minutes to talk about it in front of your peers, showcasing how it works and how it helps you claim "mission accomplished". Topics include:

    • Project Management Tools
    • e-Learning Development Tools
    • Audio/Video editing tools
    • Text to speech tools
    • Photo, Video, and Music resources/libraries
    • Budget & project tracking
    • Apps
    • Presentation Gear/Equipment
    • Storage/File Sharing
    • Collaboration/Meeting Tools
    • Analysis & Mapping Tools
    • Other ideas?

    Everyone who registers and wants to demo a product - please contact us at info@ldphilly.com We'll provide you with a rubric to follow so you stay within your allotted time and provide the most value to your peers as you demonstrate your wares. 

    Featuring a live demo by the team from Padcaster:

    Professional Development

    In times of constant and accelerated change, leaders must prepare today for the impact of artificial intelligence on the workforce. By 2030, McKinsey predicts between 75 to 375 million people will need to switch jobs and learn new skills due to the adoption of automation in the workplace.

    Beyond learning new skills, workers will also need to learn how to work side by side with AI. Gartner predicts that by 2022 one in five workers will have a digital assistant as their co-worker. So the issue is how can leaders and in particular HR leaders use AI to their advantage to re-imagine business processes, up-skill the workforce (starting with the HR team members) and promote responsible AI by managing the trust, legal and ethical concerns that accompany AI.

    This session will focus on the following ways HR can lead in the age of AI:

    • Share recent Future Workplace research on the deployment of AI in HR;
    • Identify how HR Pioneers are using AI to enhance the employee experience in recruiting, on boarding, career development and coaching;
    • Recommend new HR roles being created and how HR can lead the the AI revolution in the workplace.

    "How to Leverage or Shift a Strong Organization Culture"

    Program Description:

    Many business leaders and members of the Learning and Development community intuitively understand the value a strong culture offers companies. As L&D professionals we frequently view our work (e.g., designing and delivering training programs, organizational development initiatives, etc.) as contributing to the development and reinforcement of a culture that drives business results.

    However, if business conditions change, necessitating a different organizational strategy and direction, changing the organization's culture can be very difficult.

    Join us for a presentation by Mark Pagenkopf (Director, Organization Development for Ricoh Americas) to hear how they dealt with shifting their culture and the challenges they faced. We will then have a robust roundtable discussion facilitated by Amy Dinning (Learning & Development Manager for ARRIS).

    We will also have ample opportunity for an interactive question and answer period.

    At present, the workforce is 29% Boomers, 23% Gen-Xers, and 45% Millennials. Bad news: what captivates one group is turning off another. Worse news: you can’t just target the final decision-makers with your marketing. During the sales process you–or maybe only your website–will touch all three generations. How do you adapt your marketing and sales pitches, so they are effective regardless of who is receiving them?

    In this fast-paced, action-focused session you will learn:

    • Your own generational blind spots that are sabotaging making a connection with older or younger clients
    • The one piece of research you must do before talking to a decision maker
    • How to accommodate contradictory needs of different generations in one sales pitch
    • How to update your visuals, websites, interactive activities, and even your CRMs so they get your message across to all generations

    Anna Liotta teaches you how to “tickle your audience without ticking them off.” [I didn’t get the exact wording of your slogan] This is a must-attend session for speakers of all generations–well, only if you want to close more business.

    About our speaker:

    Anna Liotta, MA, CSP, is an award-winning keynote speaker and best-selling author with a deep understanding from 20 years of research on how generational demographics and dynamics affect every aspect of business success.

    Early in her career, Anna identified a common theme: a fundamental lack of understanding between different generations within an organization hinders trust, alignment and bottom-line outcomes. This led to her life’s work of helping people develop practical strategies for optimal communications across generations.

    Annaʼs most impressive generational credential however is that Anna is the youngest girl of nineteen children. This means that every Thanksgiving, graduation, or wedding is a fascinating case study in multi-generational communication.

    The founder of The Generational Institute™ and author of Unlocking Generational CODES, © Annaʼs clients range from the PGA of America to the NBA, from Amazon.com to the Womenʼs Foodservice Forum.

    • We’ll be presenting an innovative new way to measure and map “Brand” and “Culture.”
    • We’ll be presenting simple exercises that measurably improve employee engagement.
    • We’ll be explaining practical tactics that organizations can use to improve improve business outcomes.
