ATD 2014 Session: W106
Judy Ravin | May 07, 2014 | Video

Globalization demands that leaders navigate a multitude of training styles, each one impacting the degree to which the trainer is able to engage, motivate, and achieve the highest level of skill acquisition and carryover. Trainers at corporations with multinational team members have an additional need: to ensure maximum learning transfer for every member of their diverse team, including those for whom English is a second language. This session provides actionable tools for using language cues—verbal, written, and visual—so trainers can achieve optimal results for both native and non-native English speakers alike. These practices not only level the playing field for all training participants, they also ensure investment in human capital is optimized to its greatest potential. These training techniques will help you subject matter carryover after the training experience, regardless of subject matter content.

Creating Highly Functional Virtual Teams

ATD 2014 Session: W206
Jennifer Hofmann | May 07, 2014 | Video

Can a virtual team be as effective as a co-located team? This is a question that organizations are debating, and the arguments on both sides are very compelling. Factors like work-life balance and organizational savings need to be balanced with the value of face-to-face collaboration and managerial oversight. Whether you personally embrace the concept or not, chances are you will participate as a virtual team member during your career. The reality is, a virtual team can be very effective if the correct conditions are met and maintained. It's about putting together the right personalities, ensuring they have the right tools, and leading the team successfully. After discussing the arguments for and against establishing a virtual team, this workshop will use real life examples to address six key enablers for success.  At the conclusion of the session, you will be able to: identify the profile of an effective virtual team and its players, know how to engage existing team members when selecting new team members, confirm the right technologies and processes are in place to ensure success, create inter-reliability, trust, and teamwork, identify and manage issues before they become destructive, establish credibility while maintaining the right balance of oversight and empowerment, and create team-building opportunities across the distance.

Intercultural Communication: Leaping Over Boundaries

ATD 2014 Session: TU115
Ken Gimm | May 06, 2014 | Video

As organizations become more global, they come across more challenges in intercultural communication. As a result, a wide range of communication problems emerges as individuals come together from different religious, social, ethnic, and educational backgrounds. Unfortunately, a lack of intercultural communication skills deters collaboration. In this session, you will hear how intercultural communication skills training can be applied to people from different countries and cultures. You will learn how to act, communicate, and change your paradigm for synergistic cooperation. You will learn to identify and assess intercultural communication problems in your organization and develop the insight to apply best practices that have been proven in Asia. You will learn: Culture and language are not the main barrier, the common causes of dysfunctional intercultural communication, the transformative skills that enable you to leap over intercultural boundaries, and the best practices in developing cultural intelligence using African, Asian, European, and American examples.

Training the World: Using Archetypes to Create a Practical Global Learning Strategy

ATD 2014 Session: TU206
Richard Mesch | May 06, 2014 | Video

Virtually all large organizations are global, and facing the challenges of creating learning interactions that are beneficial and comprehensible to diverse audiences all over the world. Some organizations take the 'pray' approach, by creating learning for one geography and praying other audiences will get something out of it. Other organizations burn through huge amounts of money creating custom learning for every different geography. Isn't there a better way? Can't effective global learning be created in a way that doesn't break the bank? This session focuses on a pragmatic and reasonable approach to global learning design that utilizes archetypes, focusing as much on the commonalities between learning styles as on the differences. The Global Archetype approach adapts well-established cultural preference models and combines them with insightful learning models. The result is three primary Global Learning Archetypes and six secondary archetypes that allow training to be designed once and used around the world. This session focuses on: how the Global Learning Archetypes were created, how the Archetypes can be translated into design specs that any learning team can use, and how organizations are using the Archetypes to deliver globally while controlling cost.
