    Location change!  PDR Work + Place

    Visitor parking in 2 Houston Center garage is accessed from McKinney Street. From the main building lobby level P1, take the elevator bank to Floor 39.

     In today’s workforce, we work more often than ever before with other cultures across the globe – we even state that a “Global Mindset” is the desired competency for both ourselves and our leaders. Against this backdrop, “When Cultures Collide and using Values for Transformation” will discuss why it is important to know your own culture, understand other people’s cultures, promote engagement through values, and build strong working relationships.

    The presentation will explore the work of the Barrett Values Center (BVC) and its Seven Levels of Consciousness® model, which applies to all individuals and human group structures and how they grow in stages of psychological development. We will examine the model through a lens of striving for self-actualization in our organizations by understanding values – both our own and those of the people we work with.

    Participants attending this presentation will learn:

    1. What it means to be Culturally Aware on the Global Stage: why it matters and what it looks like in the US, India, China, and the UK.
    2. Cultural Norms and the Five Key Dimensions (from Aperian Global) – using cultural intelligence as a resource for improved cross-cultural understanding.
    3. Introducing the Barrett Values Model – from Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to Levels of Consciousness.  
    4. Evaluating case study to understand working globally and valuing differences when involved in a mutual project

    Utilizing material from BVC, participants will plot the values of two companies in order to review their similarities, as well as any differences they might need to be aware of that could be potentially limiting for the new merged company.

    Description: The ability to use best practices for writing eLearning narration scripts to produce sound, effective narration can increase learner retention and engagement. However, an understanding of how to effectively apply narration to eLearning has the potential to expand flexibility to instructional design and delivery which supports learning retention and engagement. Additionally, connecting the benefits of both self-narration and outsourcing narration can help determine which approach is best for a particular project.

    Increase learner engagement and retention by using voiceover narration correctly in eLearning training programs. In this presentation, participants will learn:

    • The benefits of using proper narration
    • Best practices for writing narration scripts
    • How narration can expand options for presenting eLearning training material
    • The difference between poor narration and effective narration
    • Simple techniques for getting the narration right on the first go-around
    • How a professional narrator can simplify work life and make you happier
    • The shocking truth about cost
    • How to find and select a voiceover narrator
    • Audio File Technical Considerations
      After attending the presentation, participants will be knowledgeable of the benefits of both self-narration and outsourcing narration and be able to determine which approach is best for a particular project. For outsourcing, participants will understand how to estimate the financial cost of budget planning, and how to find a narrator. Participants will have an understanding of specific audio file technical specifications such as file parsing requirements, naming conventions, file type options, and bit-rate requirements.
