Hostage at the Table
By George Kohlrieser
Stay at home and join in the fun! Our meeting is VIRTUAL.
The ATD-OC President’s Book Club is open to non-members too! It’s a great way to learn more about ATD-OC, learn important skills, have fun, and meet some of our wonderful members.
What is our agenda?
Some come to talk, some to listen, all to experience the moment.
A little about the book…
Conflict is part of human behavior that stems from a basic fight-or-flight instinct. Unfortunately, conflict is something many avoid at all costs and this leads to negative emotions that derail manager, leaders, and organizations. By applying proven techniques and psychological insights used in hostage negotiations in business successfully resolve conflict, problems, build relationships, and create healthy environments at home and work.
An excerpt from the book:
The feeling of being held hostage is particularly apparent in interpersonal relationships when power, authority, or position are abused or unduly feared…
Conflict is everywhere around us – in our personal lives, in our professional lives, and in the world at large. This is a reality. The good news is that we can learn to manage it so that the idea of conflict has positive rather than negative connotation.
George Kohlrieser is an organizational and clinical psychologist. He is professor of leadership and organizational behavior at the International Institute for Management Development (IMD) and a consultant to global organizations around the world.

Alternatives to the Creative Cloud (Training & Technology)
While the cost associated with Adobe's Creative Cloud is well worth it for graphic and marketing professionals, they are a bit expensive for those of us who use the products sparingly within our training content. For those of you who want to modify the rare vector image or edit the occasional photo, fear not! There are some tools that can support both our needs and our budget. We'll share them here.
Developing a leader throughout their career requires several shifts in mindset, skills, and metrics as their span of influence expands. Explore the different levels of leadership, what is required at each, and how to prepare leaders to be successful at each level.

Have you ever attended—or maybe led—a presentation or training session where time got away from the facilitator?
Continuing the discussion from the SIG Micro-Conference, anyone who facilitates anything needs a good sense of what a minute feels like...and what two minutes, three minutes, five minutes and so forth feel like as well. What’s more, we need the ability to accomplish our goals no matter how the timeframes, we think we have, shift.

Perhaps you’ve been astonished to receive an accurate “personalized recommendation” from an online retailer. Or maybe you’ve heard about how Fitbit has collected the biggest set of heart-rate data ever and medical researchers are now using this data. These kinds of uses of big data and analytics have arrived and it’s more important than ever that L&D and other performance improvement professionals understand what’s happening, why it’s important and what to do about it.
In this presentation, we use case studies to delve into some important concepts, principles, questions and precautions that L&D and performance improvement professionals should be paying attention to.
What are data science and analytics?
Why are these important?
How are these being used today in general and in L&D, education, and performance improvement projects?
Who are some thought leaders you should be paying attention to?

Regardless of your job title, if you’re working in the training industry, particularly in a production capacity, you need an online portfolio. Why do you need a portfolio?

This month, we seek to enhance our members' abilities to demonstrate adaptability and model personal development.
Our learners have changed. We can’t afford to solely focus on business impact and performance. We now serve an audience made of consumers. These consumers are used to incredible experiences, using the best technology, all while helping them learn and perform better. The new theories, approaches, and technology intersecting within our field can feel overwhelming and impossible to stay on top of. In this time of change, you can use the framework of a product manager to tackle all of these new approaches and technology and prepare yourself for whatever comes next.
Explore the role of the product manager and how the responsibilities align with the role of learning system owner or designer.
