    Review one (or more) engagement surveys over the past few years, and you may be inclined to believe that engagement is at an all-time low.  ATD-OC has quoted Gallup's statistic that 70% of the workforce is disengaged, and we ought to do something about that.

    Rich Hazeltine is joining us to dispute that.

    Not that we ought to do nothing about engagement.  We absolutely should.  And most of his January webinar will address just that. 

    After reviewing 2019 engagement surveys from several agencies, Rich will discuss what happens if we don't monitor or nurture engagement.  He'll illustrate methods to improve engagement throughout any generation (including those much-maligned Millennials), including Amazon's principle of working backward.  You'll leave with an Engagement 2020 survey to help you document the "Why," "What," and "How" of engagement within your organization.

    Facilitated by: 

    Rich Hazeltine is an executive coach with over 20 years of operations, organizational effectiveness and leadership development expertise. He is a veteran of hospitality, retail and e-commerce including 7 years at Zappos.com. At Zappos Rich built the leadership development program and the enterprise EQ (Emotional Intelligence) program. He also designed multiple performance tools inside a strong culture with a fluid organizational structure. 

    His behavioral science company, Rich Integration, focuses on using technology to design and align people strategies with business strategy and results. Rich holds an MBA, CPLP and certifications in coaching and change management that help his clients align their people for performance.

    Every year brings new developments to the talent development industry -- either in the field of learning and development, or in the workforce which we serve.  

    Tonight we're pleased to talk about these developments with ### Orange County talent development leaders.  We'll explore the trends that are impacting talent development, and how those trends have been incorporated (or not) into the training conducted at each panelist's organization. And we'll take a brief look into the future, hoping to catch a glimpse of how L&D could be impacted by the innovations that are making headlines today.

    We'll look at three sets of data:

    1. Learning and development trends and patterns identified in ATD National's State of the Industry report
    2. Innovations, both new and ongoing, that continue to impact learning and development strategy
    3. The future of work, as outlined by ATD National's Future of Work report.

    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.

    Application On The Job:

    Explore the role of the product manager and how the responsibilities align with the role of learning system owner or designer.

    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 and we have to find a way to ensure our solutions have a way to cut through the noise and gain our learners' attention, all while maintaining the integrity of our instructional design.

    This requires a new set of tools, methods, and skills around experience design. 

    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.

    Application On The Job:

    • Explore how our learners have changed and the way that changes our roles as learning professionals
    • Identify the processes for empathy interviewing, write scripts, and conduct interviews
    • Create a script for persona development, gather inputs, and put them together into something your team can use during design
    • Identify the pieces of a learning journey map and build out a sample journey map
    • Create a script for usability testing your courses, systems, and experiences and what to do with the input you get

    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. 

    Join now, if you are not a member.
