    A little about our book…

    Over 1.6 Million copies of Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell have been sold since 2008.

    Malcolm Gladwell addresses the question ‘What makes high-achievers different?’ The answer is too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: their culture, family, generation, and idiosyncratic experiences of upbringing. He shares the secrets of software billionaires, ice hockey pros, why Asians from the Delta region of Southern China are good at math, and why the Beatles maybe the greatest rock band ever. Outliers is simultaneously delightful, illuminating, entertaining, and brilliant.

    Testimonials about the book:

    "Outliers is a compelling read with an important message: by understanding better what makes people successful we should be able to produce more successful (and Happy) people.” – Economist

    “Insightful…If enough people read and ponder the implications of Outliers, perhaps that can help begin the much needed process of turning around current counter-productive attitudes toward education and toward life.” – Thomas Sowell, Washington Times

    FAQs:

    Q: What if I didn’t read the book or only read part of it?
    A: Join in anyway. We can be your live version of "CliffsNotes®" for learning.

    Q: Where do I get a copy of the book?
    A: You can order your book on
     Amazon.

    Q: Why join a book club discussion?

    We’re a few weeks in to our “shelter in place” world and uncertainty lays ahead. As we adjust to our new normal, have you thought, “what’s next?” Join us for a webinar to look at individual strategies to help yourself be at your best. In this hour, we will gain strategies in three areas that will help you take control where you can:

    • Focus: Where are you putting it? Where do you have control to put it?
    • Self-Management: Take control with your mental, emotional, and physical states and refresh and reenergize yourself.
    • Connection: Engage others with empathy, clarity, and purpose to help minimize unproductive areas that are out of their control.   

    Join us to connect, grow, and discuss how to use this time to define what is needed today and later, as normal takes on a new meaning.

    Due to current health protectiion directives, we are 
    bringing you excellent programs via webinar.

    With the "overnight" conversion of workplace dynamics, leaders need support in understanding the new REMOTE environment their employees are working in and the change management challenges they face.

    Understanding the needs of our employees (and ourselves) will allow us all to create new norms to optimize the remote experience for employee engagement and continued productivity. The new normal is there is no new normal.  As Ray Bradberry said, you have to jump off the cliff and build your wings on the way down and many leaders are feeling like they are doing just that. 

    • Learn how going virtual will impact your culture now and in the future
    • Obtain best practices to keep employees engaged
    • Review the top challenges with going virtual and understand how to address them

    An exploration of tools and techniques to facilitate outstanding virtual events!

    In our March 2018 learning event, GoTo webinar guru Cohrena Bahr suggested that virtual meeting activities need not be limited to polling and chats.  We subscribe to her mentality that one should design a virtual training session with the same approach as one were to design an instructor-led training session, and explore ways to apply online technology to achieve those goals.

    Today's discussion: Brainstorming.

    Brainstorming is a powerful activity that generates a slew of ideas for the class to explore.  But how can you create a virtual brainstorming session that sticks?  Training and Technology SIG Leader Paul Venderley has some ideas.  Let's explore them, and see if they work for you!

    Agenda:

    ATD-OC's Virtual Happy Hour will be divided into two discrete components:

    1. the tools and techniques presentation.  
    2. the online discussion between participants to discuss how they might apply the information shared in that presentation.


    About our Facilitator:

    An ATD designated Master eLearning Instructional Designer, Paul Venderley has spent the better part of his 20 years in L&D applying forward-looking techniques to create engaging learning programs.  His diverse portfolio includes webinar, leader-led, and blended learning projects for clients within the mortgage banking, education, non-profit, and manufacturing industries.

    Look for Paul at an ATD-Orange County meeting, where he is an active leader pulling the strings behind the scenes of our monthly learning events.  He’s revived their Training and Technology Special Interest Group, applying his affinity for eLearning to coach teams on the design and development of eLearning projects for various Orange County non-profit organizations.  

    Or you may find him in other places where learning and development enthusiasts congregate: he is a 2019 Learning Solutions presenter, co-facilitating a discussion on the application of online resources to support a synchronous blended learning environment.

    You’ll definitely find him at Crane Morley, where he’s collaborating with instructors at the Southern California Gas Company to redesign their current weeks-long instructor-led programs into a streamlined training initiative that blends multiple web-based training modules with practical hands-on training.

    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.

    “An engaged learner is a learning learner” – Anonymous

    Are you an in-person facilitator suddenly forced into the world of virtual sessions? Or, do you have mad skills designing or delivering webinar training or VILT (“Virtual Instructor-led-training”)?   Whether it’s a timely refresher or a much-needed survival guide, this session is for you!

    What is a potluck session?  Instead of food, the audience brings their ideas about the topic and participates in the discussion.  What better format for a virtual session! You will hear—and share—great ways to keep learners engaged during virtual training.  

    Bring to the session a tip or best practice for engaging virtual learners.  Your tip can be big or small, easy or more involved to implement...all ideas are welcome. Your tip can be:

    • An idea you’ve used effectively in the past
    • An idea you’ve seen someone else use effectively
    • An idea you’ve never used or seen used, but you’d like to find out if any one in the group has used.

    We hope to see—or hear (if you are not at a webcam)—you there!

    Watch this video to learn more and hear your options for sharing your tip: Tip Number 1

    Our Moderator

    TD-OC's 2020 VP of Talent Development, Lynn Nissen will moderate this event.  With over 10 years’ experience working in a variety of L & D capacities, Lynn excels in creating engaging learning solutions that achieve business goals.  As a presenter, Lynn’s goal is to create interactive learning experiences that provide practical, useful take-aways.

    Due to the current recent developments and recommendations regarding COVID-19 by the CDC, this event is postponed. We will alert you when it is rescheduled.


    Our learners are used to incredible experiences, using the best technology, all while helping them learn and perform better.  As the talent development field adjusts to changes in learner expectations, we find ourselves not only the curators of content and objectives, but custodians of the learner experience.   Where does a module interface lose our learners?  Which activity, while pedagogically sound, confuses program participants? 

    The field of Learner Experience includes new theories, approaches, and technology that intersects our own and can advance how we deliver training. 

    This workshop is designed to help you identify those tools, practice using them, and put together a plan to apply those tools when you get back to your job.

    "Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”

    -- Abraham Lincoln

    Today's discussion: An Ounce of Preparation - GoToTraining.

    The best webinars run seamlessly behind the scenes.  How can you prepare your web meetings so that your participants move from presentation to poll to activity without any delay or facilitator fidgeting?

    ATD Orange County uses GoToTraining for all its events.  In this session, we'll take a tour of GoToTraining behind the scenes.  What features are available?  What should you do in advance of your session?

    A little about our book…

    Power, position, property. Critical to human development, history, and society. We are hardwired to want more in the name of personal survival. Today’s workplace is filled daily with battles over information, relationships, and authority. Everyone is fighting for survival and today’s fight is psychological safety. Turf wars are productivity and morale squashing activities that employees engage in – most without any conscious thought to their choices.

    Territorial Games analyzes 10 insidious and instinctual acts of gamesmanship and supplies positive strategies to protect yourself, move out of the game, and assist others with awareness of the trap that has them by the limbic system.

    A little about Annette Simmons…

    “Once upon a time, story was banished from business. Then Annette Simmons came along to show us the error of our ways. This book is a smart, practical guide to tapping the power of narrative to improve your business and your life.”
        
    - Daniel H. Pink, Author A Whole New Mind

    “It’s not as hard as you think! Annette Simmons lays out the storytelling agenda in clear, simple steps. You can (and you must) tell a story if you expect to succeed as a marketer. This book ought to help.”
          - Seth Godin, Author Outliers

    Annette books include The Story Factor, Whoever Tells the Best Story Wins, and of course, Territorial Games.

    For some webinars, a significant challenge is just getting people talking and interacting with the content.  In this Happy Hour, we'll walk through a few activities designed that (should) do just that, and open up the discussion to explore activities that you've successfully used.

    Agenda:

    ATD-OC's Virtual Happy Hour will be divided into two discrete components:

    1. the tools and techniques presentation.  
    2. the online discussion between participants to discuss how they might apply the information shared in that presentation.

    “The Mentor Chain: Professional relationships for career growth” is an overview of how to create and get the most out of a mentor program. Employees and leaders know why mentoring is important, but lack a systematic curriculum to structure and cultivate relationships. In this workshop you will learn specific methods to recruit and onboard participants, make matches, ensure engagement, and evaluate success.

    Attendees will learn how to build, launch and scale a mentor program. We will discuss how to align it with the organization’s vision, potential problems that can arise, and how to create a culture of mentoring. We will also cover tactics to help managers become better mentors and employees become better mentees. 

    This half-day workshop will focus on creating a mentorship program using ATDOC as a case study – exploring methods of matching recent college graduates with experienced members. The outcome can be applied to any organization’s unique focus for amentor program (i.e. change management, innovation, retention, management development, newly onboarded employees, intra-division, inter-division, etc.).

    Intended Audience

    This program is for L&D and HR professionals interested in building a mentor program.

    Outcomes

    At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to setup and execute a mentor program.

    Takeaways for Participants

    The audience will also receive Mentor Matchmaker’s worksheet for relationship building.

    In environments where more and more organizations are competing for resources and attempting to do more with less, talent developers, HR professionals, and learning leaders are facing increased pressure to show how training investments contribute to strategic business measures and add bottom line value.

    1. Identify multiple measures of learning impact
    2. Discover best practices for measuring how learning is transferred to the job
    3. Explore ways to evaluate the business impact of learning
    4. Increase your credibility as a strategic business partner

    Multi-Week Social Media Series

    Wednesdays Beginning July 15


    In this age of digital curation, how you manage what others know about you is crucial to establishing your professional brand.  We all know of LinkedIn, long established as the professional’s online networking tool. And perhaps we’ve set up an account with the social media juggernaut Facebook, but are we maximize these tools as branding resources?  Or are we tossing stuff against our newsfeed to see what sticks?

    We’re well aware of the perils of designing training without a well thought out approach. Such courses are usually a waste of time, money, and effort, and leave participants with little to show for their participation. The same can be said for what we do with social media.

    ATD-OC is pleased to announce the return of its Summer Social Series, a collection of five webinars exploring the social media universe. We’ll apply the ADDIE model to our online communication efforts:

    • Analyzing which of the myriad of tools available will best support the digital curation of our knowledge and skills
    • Designing content to engage our audience
    • Implementing social media accounts (we'll most likely focus our conversation on LinkedIn, but may get a few other platform experts to join us)
    • Evaluating the results of our efforts

    We’ll discuss why a presence in the major social media platforms is neither a gateway to success nor a waste of time, and how we can maximize our presence in those platforms. But perhaps most importantly, we’ll dive into these platforms to explore their -- and your -- potential in furthering the strategic development of your professional brand.

    Attendance is an exclusive benefit
    for ATD-Orange County Chapter Members.
