    Which one of these did you want to be when you grew up?: 

    • A instructional designer 
    • An OD practitioner 
    • A business consultant
    • An HR partner 


    We're going to guess option E - none of the above. A lot of people back their way into a job and a career. Our resumes may look neat and tidy, but our lives, and our careers, really are not. 


    If you find yourself at work wearing a hat that includes word or phrases like "training", "organizational", "human resources", "performance", and you don't have a formal background in instructional design or education, you belong at this event. Local expert Joe Willmore, fresh off of a wave of global engagements with ATD, will guide participants through a day long seminar on how to analyze and design for employee performance.

    Part one will focus on front-end analysis. With a very hands-on approach, you will learn to to identify and quantify business goals, assess performance, create objectives in measurable terms, and spot and fix performance gaps.

    Part two will zoom in specifically on performance gaps and understanding top performers. This more detailed, focus session will give you guided practice in using the tools and techniques experts use to diagnose, remedy, and measure employees' work on the job. In addition, you will learn that the fastest way to improve performance is to identify exemplars/top performers, and also how to observe, measure, and interact with them so that their success can be translated into a formula that works for others.


    Registration opening soon. In the meantime, check out the other great events coming this Fall!

    Thanks to Joe Urbanski for a thought-provoking, paradigm shifting, and above all - engaging workshop today as part of our Summer of Learnin 2018. Thanks to Drexel's Goodwin College of Professional Studies for hosting us and for ATD Philadelphia for the partnership in putting the event on. A quick highlight of Joe's main takeaways:

    1. Culture is important. CULT ture that is. (Or as they say in the military & business - culture eats strategy for breakfast)

    2. There of lots of ways to make "mandatory training" feel engaging and useful. 

    3. A lot of "non-mandatory training" - well, feels like it's mandatory.

    4. You can give your participants a choice - to be engaged or to be a prisoner. But that choice is yours to make first.

    5. If you want to make people want to take training you need to learn what motivates each one of them.

    6. We learn through discovery. We remember through reinforcement and repetition. 

    7. Content? No, CONTEXT is king in training.

    8. Training & Facilitating don't mean the same thing.

    Thanks also to everyone that came out and had a blast alongside us and Joe.
