For those in charge of mentoring programs, their own development often gets short shrift.

Michael Coates | January 16, 2015 | Video

English may be the language of global business, but everything changes when corporate goals require the provision of e-learning materials in alternate languages. The most forgotten secret of successful multilingual training and development is the need for a global language translation strategy. Are you training diverse audiences, such as non-English or second-language learners; expanding your corporate reach into new countries; providing e-learning resources in more than one language; experiencing delays and inconsistencies; and/or receiving complaints regarding previously translated training materials? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, this session is for you. Discover the foundational components of a successful global language translation strategy and will arm you with specific action items pertinent to your organization's learning objectives surrounding e-learning. Building upon their published whitepaper on the same subject, the speakers will share practical steps for implementation based on industry best practices and client success stories.

Janice Burns | January 15, 2015 | Video

Your organization has invested in enough high-tech and no-tech learning assets to fill a catalog. You understand the math. It's all about 70-20-10 and you want to do more with technology to drive all three. How do you select and leverage the right assets, not only to save time and money, but also drive better learning outcomes and performance? It's not enough to just assemble the right parts and pieces, you want to gain support and sustain it as well. During this session, the speaker will help you identify the right blend of technologies to bring formal and informal learning together. You'll learn how to create a visual snapshot of a high-tech, high-touch development program and receive a template to present your program in a compelling way. You will leave with ideas, insights, and tools to use with social media, mobile support, games, and simulations to sustain learning, so your organization gets the most out of its training dollars, and your learners get what they want. You will understand how you can use high-tech to assess gaps in high-touch skills and learn new approaches to design personalized development programs to address those gaps. Determine how technology can help you gain buy-in and commitment from key stakeholders to achieve measurable results. Basic knowledge of 70-20-10 or formal and informal learning components will maximize the dialogue and learning in this session.

ATD 2014 Session: M309
Karen Hough | May 07, 2014 | Video

Getting outside your normal working and thinking mode is critical to creating elegant, meaningful solutions for your organization. Learn how to frame innovation so that your team can experience a whole new paradigm for thinking, based on the skills of improvisation, which leads to more creative, flexible, and adaptive work. We not only examine creativity—we apply it to real situations so that the information is useful rather than theoretical. You'll learn how improvisers can be so creative in risky, stressful situations. We will examine how creative and innovative people and organizations interact, how they manage risk, and the most effective ways to implement creativity in a culture. You will engage in improvisational exercises, small-group discussions, and intense challenges.

Harnessing the Power of Personalized Leadership Development

ATD 2014: Session W116
Tacy M. Byham | May 07, 2014 | Video

Personalized leadership development holds great potential to drastically change the learning experience. It taps participant engagement, promotes ownership, and builds independence and confidence, while maximizing the leader's learning potential based on their individual needs, abilities, and preferences. Today, learners have access to diverse content and are making their personal preferences known regarding what is included in their training and the format in which they receive that content. They want to focus on learning that is unique to their current situation taking into account where they are in their careers and in their lives. At the same time, we need to ensure that they are achieving their behavior development goals. In this interactive session, you will learn the five practices for harnessing the power of personalized leadership development: personalized content, personalized insight, personalized practice, personalized performance support, and personalized learning environment. Additionally, you will network with peers to share personalization successes and tips for incorporating the new mixes of face-to-face, social, electronic, virtual, and on-demand learning.
