Establish a Common Performance LanguageAll of your training, recruiting, evaluating, and quality efforts will be so much easier when everyone involved speaks the same performance language!

As long as HR, training, the business units, and the quality people are speaking their own languages you are bound to have conflicts, misunderstandings, and inefficiencies that sap the human spirit and the bottom line.

And, according to Mager Consortium and Dr. Robert Mager’s world-renowned work, it’s as simple (not easy) as defuzzifying your fuzzies and speaking skill, will, and hill.

(Dr. Robert Mager pioneered innovative processes leading to the performance-based training that has positively impacted the work place today. Those innovations have been published and taught in workshops all over the world and utilized by many of the world’s top businesses.)

This evening, we are fortunate to have Rex Conner share his approach for establishing a common performance language.  You'll walk away with a framework for reducing subjective language and begin applying that methodology within your own organization.

You can attend this event in-person or virtually.
(Upon registration, you will be required to indicate acceptance of our
Photography Release that appears at the bottom of this page.)

(Virtual attendance is identified in the registration type.
All other registration types are in-person.)

Drive for Success - Working Wardrobes

Have something in your wardrobe that you haven't worn for over a year?  Feeling inspired by one (or more) of the Met Gala outfits, but don't have room in your closet for a new outfit?

ATD-Orange County is proud to once again support Working Wardrobes in their mission to help men, women, young adults and veterans overcome this difficult challenge so they can achieve the dignity of work.

This May, we're asking you to dip into your closet and pull out that one (or two) item(s) that you just aren't wearing for work anymore.  Bring it with you to the May Learning Event, and we'll contribute it to Working Wardrobe's Professional Clothing and Accessories Drive. 

Further details about this professional clothing and accessories drive can be found on the Ideas and Insights blog, here.
