New, Evidence-Based Training Design and Adult Motivation Strategies

Richard Clark, EdD, Co-Director, Center for Cognitive Technology, University of Southern California
  •  What have we learned recently from neuroscience and cognitive science that we can apply now to increase training and performance improvement program effectiveness? 
  • How can we apply the latest research in online and multimedia learning to improve the impact of technology-based training? 
  • What have we learned in the past decade about how to motivate others and ourselves?

In this preview of his April 21st keynote speech at THE Performance Improvement Conference, Dick will describe what we have learned in the past decade about the “mental architecture” adults use to learn and how to apply these insights to improve training.  He will describe ways to implement evidence-based strategies that increase effectiveness of multimedia & online instruction by 20-45%.

Becoming Whole through Work: The Benefits of Interiority for Increased Productivity and Satisfaction

Hugh Leonard

Most training programs put the focus on knowledge and skills for external results. Interiority at work puts the emphasis on gaining access to our inner energies while doing our work for increased productivity and personal satisfaction. These inner energies are the bases of centeredness within, personal stability, concentrated attention on our tasks, creative and worthwhile contributions to the organization, trustworthy relationships and wise decision-making.

This interactive presentation covers the theory and practices of Interiority. Hugh explains why, in our present frenetic social and business context, Interiority is a vital capacity for sustaining ourselves in our busy world, especially at work.

  • 40 years as an executive coach, OD consultant and spiritual director in U.S. and Japan.
  • Expert in inter-cultural workplace collaboration, team-building & conflict-resolution.
  • Book on “Interiority at Work” coming out early in 2012
