    Getting into Blockchain

    Location: WeWork at The Jones Building, 708 Main Street 10th floor, Houston, Texas 77002

    Proceed to the 10th floor upon entering the building

    Blockchain appears poised to disrupt the learning and development landscape. From an L&D perspective, organizations can utilize Blockchain as a way to document learning inside and outside the workplace while reshaping incentive programs. Tokens can incentivize employers to offer more and better training while rewarding employees for engaging in learning activities and reaching higher levels of competency.

    In general, Blockchain functions as a distributed ledger that allows transactions to be available to the public and verifiably accurate but not controlled by any one entity. Augment Blockchain with a smart contract, which automates transactional processes with minimal involvement from a middleman, and the power curve of who controls information begins to migrate toward a more equitable landscape. This technology stands to disrupt traditional processes in L&D and a number of other important industries.

    Learning Objectives:

    "Getting into Blockchain," presented by Fred Stawitz, will discuss:

    • How Blockchain works
    • What makes it particularly unusual compared to traditional modes of electronic storage
    • How it can benefit training and development efforts

    Participants attending this session will:

    • Learn how information is stored and retrieved from Blockchain
    • Identify the characteristics of Blockchain that make it so disruptive
    • Envision ways to utilize Blockchain in a learning and development environment

    A Coaching Mindset: Tackling Challenging Conversations that Drive Organizational Results

    Location:  Strategic Ascent, 14701 Saint Mary's Lane, Suite 125 (Ashford 5) Houston, Texas 77079

    Coaching - is it worth it?

Companies with highly engaged workforces, where coaching conversations are a part of the culture, outperform their peers by 147% in earnings per share. (Gallup)

    Learning Objectives

    Attendees will be able to:
    • Identify what’s at stake when leaders don’t coach
    • Summarize the impact of coaching and the economic benefits to the organization

    General Meeting: Beyond Behaviors: Shaping Mindsets for Successful Organizational Change


    In today’s business world, shifts across markets, technology and competition are constant. In order to thrive, organizations must take on change and manage it a rapid speeds. With any change, discomfort and resistance are typically the focus. Talent Development Leaders who look to understand their organization’s identity and internal capabilities can shift the “change = pain” mindset to capitalize on opportunity that lies within the disruption.

    By shifting the organization’s perspective of business transformation, and treating discomfort as positive tension, talent and performance teams can leverage internal change processes to drive the level of performance needed to manage and sustain successful change across teams.

    Learner Objectives

    In this session, participants will: 

      • Define mindshare in Talent and Learning
      • Discuss why mindshare is critical for moving beyond learned helplessness and normalizing the abnormal: zero-sum, win-or-lose sustainability performance in organizations.
      • Discover how authentic change processes use much more than just traditionally accepted behavior management in organizational change.

      • Discuss how leveraging disruption as opportunity is key to changing the game internally in organizations.

        Topic

        According to the TD.org article, “Sales Enablement Solutions to Elevate Your Bottom Line” ATD has implemented a Sales Enablement Certificate to develop your skills in creating sales talent development solutions that have a positive impact in the context of a broader sales enablement system. To align with the mission to ATD International, TD Houston is bringing you sales training content to help you create programs for your sales teams.

        As talent development professionals, we are familiar with the DiSC model. But did you know that this model also works well when training sales teams how to sell more? DiSC behavioral styles show up at the sales table and if the salesperson doesn’t understand the various styles and how to adapt, they can lose the sale, which impacts the company’s bottom line.

        In How to Use Everything DiSC to Help Your Sales Teams to Sell More, Toni Harris Taylor demonstrates sales trainers and influencers how to increase sales by learning how the various styles behaviors influence the buy/sell process.


        Learner Objectives
        In this session, attendees will learn:

        • How to help the learner to understand who they are and what gives them energy in the sales process.
        • How to teach your sales team to effortlessly and consistently fill their business with clients by reading the prospects buying style and providing personalized strategies for how they buy.
        • How to increase your team’s sales by speaking the prospect’s language which moves them to action.

        Participants will be able to:

        • Understand how DiSC applies to the sales process.
        • Discuss with sales management the value of teaching DiSC to their sales teams to increase sales and profitability.

          Keynote Speaker: Jane Bozarth, Director of Research for the eLearning Guild
          Topic: 
           “Show Your Work: The Payoffs and How-Tos of Working Out Loud”

          We’ve all had the experience of finishing a workplace project to find out someone had already done it, or struggling to learn a new skill to find out too late that someone in the next department has an extensive background in it. As training practitioners we spend a great deal of time talking about how people learn, and how to help people learn, and how to use that learning to help organizations improve. But “learning” often looks like doing, and talking with others about what we’re doing. In this session we’ll look at what to narrate as well as how and when. The bottom line? To improve workplace learning and knowledge management we need to stop saying, “Tell me what you do” and start asking, “Please show me how you did that?" This keynote, chock full of examples, will help you understand what to share, and where, and when, and how we as workplace L&D practitioners can support better knowledge sharing across our organizations and our discipline.

          Speaker:  Jane Bozarth has spent more than 2 decades in Learning and Development, from classroom trainer to online learning designer to eLearning Coordinator for North Carolina, USA state government. She's the author of many books, including "Social Media for Trainers", "Better than Bullet Points", and "From Analysis to Evaluation". Her abiding interest is in social and collaborative learning: the focus of her doctoral dissertation was tacit knowledge sharing in a community of practice. This interest inspired her latest book, "Show Your Work: The Payoffs and How-Tos of Working Out Loud". Dr. Bozarth currently serves as Director of Research for the eLearning Guild.

          According to TD.org article, “8 Ways to Add Purpose to Your Next Meeting,” when meetings draw employees away from day-to-day tasks but fail to reach their intended outcome, it has huge costs to the organization. All too often, this happens because meetings lack purpose or are simply boring.

          Fact: The forgetting curve shows that participants forget almost 70 percent of the information they were taught in this classroom-style training just one day later.

          Put those two facts together, and that’s a tough ROI to swallow, especially given the opportunity cost of lost revenue.

          So how can talent development leaders breathe new life into their training and keep it from being mundane and boring? Simply put, talent development leaders need to Get Drastic and create a fresh experience for their participants.

          In the seminar, Your Training MUST Be D.R.A.S.T.I.C.! Participants will learn how to drastically revamp their training strategies, so that your participants are excited, engaged and ready to execute!

          Participants will learn:

          • The definition of D.R.A.S.T.I.C. as it applies to training and why you as the trainer must get drastic!
          • Tips and tricks to engage your audience and have them wanting more.
          • How to breathe new life into your training so that even you are excited to deliver it.

          At the end of this sessions, participants will:

          • Breathe new life into their training and create a drastically different experience for their audience.
          • Implement new tools that will “Wow” your participants and have them wanting more.

          According to TD.org article, “8 Ways to Add Purpose to Your Next Meeting,” when meetings draw employees away from day-to-day tasks but fail to reach their intended outcome, it has huge costs to the organization. All too often, this happens because meetings lack purpose or are simply boring.

          Fact: The forgetting curve shows that participants forget almost 70 percent of the information they were taught in this classroom-style training just one day later.

          Put those two facts together, and that’s a tough ROI to swallow, especially given the opportunity cost of lost revenue.

          So how can talent development leaders breathe new life into their training and keep it from being mundane and boring? Simply put, talent development leaders need to Get Drastic and create a fresh experience for their participants.

          In the seminar, Your Training MUST Be D.R.A.S.T.I.C.! Participants will learn how to drastically revamp their training strategies, so that your participants are excited, engaged and ready to execute!

          Participants will learn:

          • The definition of D.R.A.S.T.I.C. as it applies to training and why you as the trainer must get drastic!
          • Tips and tricks to engage your audience and have them wanting more.
          • How to breathe new life into your training so that even you are excited to deliver it.

          At the end of this sessions, participants will:

          • Breathe new life into their training and create a drastically different experience for their audience.
          • Implement new tools that will “Wow” your participants and have them wanting more.
