    The Association for Coaching (AC) invites ATD NYC members to attend their upcoming complimentary event.

    The Association for Coaching (AC) is delighted to welcome global thought leader Tatiana Bachkirova to New York for the first AC event in the region, hosted by Columbia University's Coaching Center of Excellence. Join us for what will no doubt be an insightful and thought-provoking evening where we will explore how we might develop beyond competencies to a higher level of professional development. Complimentary event for members and non-members.

    About the event 

    The Association for Coaching (AC) is delighted to invite you to our complimentary launch event on the East Coast, hosted by Columbia University's Coaching Center of Excellence. Join our coaching community and renowned author and international speaker, Tatiana Bachkirova, for an evening event 'Being a Professional Coach: more than just competencies’. 

    In complex professions such as coaching, competence frameworks serve some purpose, but also suffer from limitations. In this talk, we will discuss what professional coaches, who need credentials and cannot change existing systems of assessment, can do to comply with traditional expectations but also develop beyond this to a higher level of professionalism.

    We are assessed at many points of our life – there is no escape. It can be very stressful and sometimes may seem unfair. An element of the subjectivity of the assessors involved in this process is inevitable but not the main issue. It is what is being assessed that is mainly problematic. Drawing on philosophical pragmatism we will explore ways to mitigate the pressures and enhance our genuine growth as professionals.

    This event is a complimentary event offered to ATD NYC members and non-members.

    Program Description:

    Microlearning is a rapidly growing trend in the L&D/TD world, with scores of recent articles, presentations, and products touting its benefits. Microlearning's advantage is that it can deliver smaller content assets to workers in the workplace, while they are on the job. That makes it far more flexible than traditional, one-time, up-front courses and more appropriate for today's more volatile work environments.

    But shifting our learning efforts, from the confines of a course to the more dynamic workplace setting, affords us many more options and opportunities. It forces us to redefine what outcomes we want, what content we provide, and where and when workers will use it.

    If we stick to our traditional course design principles, our Microlearning will have little impact. If we are willing to adapt to the new, just-in-time venue, our Microlearning will justify--and far exceed--its hype.

    So how do we do Microlearning right?

    In this session, Hal Christensen, co-chair of the Performance Support SIG, and longtime learning innovator, will model a simple, but effective, Microlearning solution to answer that question and provide guidance and resources to help you:  

    • Avoid the key mistakes Microlearning designers make.
    • Embrace the three mindset changes inherent in Microlearning that will revolutionize how you think about training and learning.
    • Identify and map out the workflow for a job in order to determine which Microlearning content and assets workers need.
    • Design a simple, replicable Microlearning solution. 

    Join us on February 21st and witness the true potential of Microlearning.

    We are offering both in-person and virtual options. 

    In-person: Our in-person session can accommodate 30 people. Because of building security requirements, registration will end 2 days prior to the event. 

    Virtual: Our simultaneous virtual session can accommodate up to 99 people and registration will remain open until the event begins.

    Chatbots are automated instant messengers that analyze user input and generate answers accordingly. You can learn how to create your own customizable chatbot for Digital Learning purposes.  They are one basic way to use AI to automatically answer frequently asked questions (FAQs).  The idea behind this project is to use a chatbot as a learning resource in a learning activity or as a performance support tool at work.

    Using chatbots in Digital Learning can be a refreshing addition to learning activities, and the method shown here does not require any programming knowledge. Creating your own chatbot can be a helpful exercise to become more acquainted with AI and how it can empower your training strategies as a learning professional.  

    In this session you will learn the basic steps in setting up and utilizing chat bots in your learning initiatives and the best practices to make them an effective tool in professional development.

    Whether you're networking, interviewing or promoting your brand in your current role, it is important to effectively showcase your talents and leave a powerful impression regarding what you have to offer.  You want to focus your listeners on what you do and how you do it.  The easiest way to do that is to tell them a memorable story.

    Every learning organization needs a defendable learning and performance strategy.  This strategy needs to unfold intentionally across the learning journey addressing a comprehensive learning and performance strategy.

    To realize peak performance, organizations must consider five fundamental moments of learning need.  These "Five Moments" comprise the full spectrum of learning and performance support requirements.

    An organization is competent to the degree that it is gaining and sustaining effective performance at every changing moment. These "Five Moments of Need" provide the overarching framework for performers to become and remain competent in their individual and collective work.

    In meeting the 5 moments of need, we find that organizations typically journey through three levels of maturity.The Performance Support Maturity Model incorporates the best practices of performance support into their offering, optimizing existing practices to enable peak performance, and delivering measurable business value. Any organization can enter anywhere along this spectrum depending on their needs and the maturity of their learning strategy.

    Join Bob Mosher senior partner, and the Chief Learning Evangelist, at APPLY Synergies, a strategic consulting firm that specializes in helping learning organizations design, develop and measure effective learning and performance support strategies to meet the 5 moments of learning need.

    Applying a UX Methodology to the Assessment Experience

    Digitization is affecting user expectation both narrowly and broadly.  Creating a scalable, valid and multi-method digital assessment experience for emerging leaders presents both challenges and opportunities for the entire assessment approach.  In a recent project IBM applied design thinking and ongoing sponsor user feedback to evolve a richly engaging digital approach to identifying, developing and selecting emerging first line leaders.  Out of that iterative design process evolved a self-paced offering that delivers a highly interactive end-to-end assessment and development experience for the user, pipeline and selection insight for the business, and a corps of global debrief coaches to support. 

    This user-centric platform is already delivering high levels of satisfaction as measured by net promotor scores [NPS] of 54.  Better still, offering a digital assessment has reduced costs by 800 percent over the traditional assessment center approach, which makes it highly cost-efficient to deliver at scale.Additional advantages have been gained by allowing those with an interest in a leadership role to directly enroll in the program and self-nominate.   This has the potential to enrich our pipeline of candidates, support bias mitigation at the very start of the pipe and enhance our efforts to further our culture of inclusion.

    Program Description:

    In today’s complex and rapidly changing environment, it is necessary to collaborate with others and work across departments, geographies and teams to get things done; oftentimes without the formal authority or title to do so. Influencing is a key skill required to operate under these conditions. In this Influencing for Results workshop we will focus on what it takes to influence other people to create win/win outcomes through partnering and planning.

    If we want to manage up, persuade a key stakeholder, or influence a decision for an internal consulting project, then we must be able to understand what influencing is and how to do it effectively. Influencing at its core is about moving people from resistance, to compliance, and ultimately when done well, to commitment; meaning they are all in with their heads, hands and hearts. Most people believe that individuals are born with a natural charisma and the ability to persuade others; however being able to influence others is a set of skills and attitudes that anyone can develop.

    The ideal approach is one of creating a shared vision and then motivating others to achieve it while creating win/win outcomes. It takes pushing through our comfort zone and planning so we do more than offer advice or take control and truly understand what it takes to get a successful outcome.

    Key Takeaways

    In this workshop participants will learn:

    *  What Influence is and why it’s so important in today’s business environment;

    *  The difference between persuasion and influence and how both are necessary and important;

    *  How individuals can enhance their own leadership presence to strengthen their ability to influence;

    *  The six components of credibility and how to manage and increase credibility for effectiveness;

    *  A framework and 5-step model for holding influencing conversations that result in win/win outcomes

    *  Tools and tips including an influence planner and strategies for overcoming resistance
