    The Work of Leaders: Bridging the Chasm from Idea to Implementation


    Friday, April 28th, 2017 @ 11:30am
    Facilitator: Julie Chance


    An estimated 66% of corporate ideas are never executed and as many as 90% of well-planned strategies fail. Clearly it takes more than a good idea or strong strategy to realize results. Using the framework of Vision, Alignment and Execution, we will explore how leaders at all levels can engage, energize and mobilize their team to bridge the chasm from idea to implementation and achieve the results they desire. After this session, learners will be able to:


    • Discover the leadership best practices required to bridge the chasm from idea to implementation

    • Explore ways to shift your leadership style to meet the needs of the situation

    • Identify tangible steps to align your team around a common vision.

    Progress Over Perfection: How to Measure Sales Effectiveness


    Thursday, May 4th, 2017

    6:00PM - Networking & Sign-In
    6:30PM-8:30PM Presentation



    Facilitator: Billy Bob Brigmon

    17548 Dallas Parkway
    Dallas, TX 75287

    Just South of the III Forks restaurant, off the Dallas North Tollway in Dallas. Find directions here.


    Measuring outcomes only (quota attainment) provides an inaccurate and easily manipulated view of sales effectiveness.  Sales Enablement allows us to expand our measurements beyond the financial metrics.  Justifying the value of Sales Enablement should be much more about proving progress than striving for mythical perfection.  In fact, Toastmasters has developed a certification process for another highly subjective domain, public speaking, which we can use as a template for sales effectiveness. 


    Join us to learn about measuring if what you’re doing in Sales Enablement is working, and to share some ideas, in an interactive discussion where we’ll learn about Sales Enablement together.


    About the Presenter:


    Billy Bob is an accomplished enterprise software sales veteran. Since 1995, Billy Bob has been focused on achieving enterprise software sales success by finding innovative ways to help customers buy.   In his current role at Workday, Billy Bob leads their efforts to recruit and prepare emerging sales talent to drive growth and innovation.

    Coaching as a Transformative Learning Process

    Friday, May 5, 2017 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

    Facilitator: Ed Rankin



    Participants will learn how a reward-winning leadership development program used coaching to effectively augment other learning/teaching modalities.

    • Learn why integrating coaching into learning programs is important and how it can be accomplished successfully. As we know, training as an event, is not as effective as learning implemented in a process.
    • Coaching can extend the learning gained through more traditional settings like a classroom or online meeting into an applied setting, like the workplace.
    • The primary principles of the coaching process and examples of coaching integrated into more traditional teaching/development settings will be reviewed.


    At the end of the session, the participants should be able to:

    • Understand how coaching can be a learning process
    • Identify opportunities to integrate coaching into learning programs

    • ·         Make better, faster decisions as people are aligned and on-board
    • ·         Leverage the skills, talents and opinions of all team members
    • ·         Ensure conflict becomes productive and healthy versus draining and damaging
    • ·         Focus on the results versus self-interest and politics
    • ·         Create a competitive advantage and sets your organization apart
    • ·         Eventually become “A Best Place to Work”

     

    Join us for this interactive, engaging SIG where we will explore the behaviors that create a high performing team, give you practices to bring to your own organization and insight as to why this concept has been embraced and widely accepted around the world.

    Story design is a comprehensive approach to instructional design from analysis to delivery. It’s incredibly practical, efficient and, most of all, effective!


    Learning professionals seek to affect behaviors through their training, but often one of the most powerful tools to changing behavior—story—is ignored…or tacked on superficially. Crafting an embedded, powerful story that concretely connects to learning can be elusive. Join ATD Dallas and Rance Greene for this live 3-session online workshop and sharpen your abilities to discover, design and deliver stories that connect with and move your audience.


    Rance will demonstrate stories for learning and you will gain the skills to design and develop stories for your own company/clients. In-session practice and short assignments will give you the opportunity to begin implementing story design quickly and learn from fellow-participants. Job aids and resources will cement what you’ve learned in the sessions and boost your confidence to start story designing right away. Get ready for instructional design training like you’ve never experienced before!


    Session 1 - Discover

    • Use a simple analysis process to mine for stories that support business outcomes
    • Create an action list and an audience profile
    • Present a strong case for stories in training and communications


    Session 2 - Design

    • Move seamlessly from analysis to design using case studies, story premises and metaphors
    • Craft stories with relatable characters and strong conflict that concretely connect to behavior change


    Session 3 - Deliver

    • Develop stories using creative delivery methods
    • Get started with some simple steps towards moving stories center stage in your training and communications

    Gamification for Learning and Development: Deconstructing the Psychology of Games to Engage Learners


    Presenter: Jonathan Peters, PhD



    When: Tuesday, May 16th, 12:00PM - 01:00PM CST


    Location: Virtual Webinar

     

    Webinar Description:


    Wouldn’t it be great to know how to introduce a gaming dimension into the corporate training programs you design or deliver? What would it look like to include game elements such as levels, challenges, rewards, and easter eggs to drive participation, engagement, retention, and to achieve a measurable ROI?


    This hands-on program you will learn the 5-step process of gamifying a training program. You’ll learn how to:

    • Define your measurable business objectives and determine how Gamification will help you to achieve your objectives
    • Weave analogies and stories to make the training stickable – so that players remember facts and transfer skills to real world scenarios
    • Create the right mix of ingredients and next steps in your learning activities to allow the participants to acquire knowledge and skill
    • Identify the game elements and mechanics (chance, competition, collaboration, rewards, etc.) you will use
    • Construct a consistent, attractive - even charming and captivating - cohesiveness that ties the entire project together
    • Answer the question: Is it fun?

    The Gamification of real-world training and development is a powerful technique which can motivate people and help generate loyalty to your organization, its products, and its message. At its core, Gamification is about finding the fun in the things that we have to do.


    When learning is fun, people remember, apply, and return to the learning.

    Lennox: Innovative Strategy for Onboarding Successful Territory Managers


    Presenter: Vickie Ashmore,
    Manager of Curriculum Design & Development
    Lennox Industries


    Tuesday, May 16, 2017
    5:30pm-7:30pm

    Registration:
    Members - Free
    Non-Members - $25


    Description:


    Vickie Ashmore is the Manager of Curriculum Development at Lennox Industries and leads a team of exceptional Instructional Designers.  Her numerous leadership positions over 28 years at Lennox  include Dealer Business Consultant and Marketing Manager for the Eastern, Canadian and Southeastern sales Regions.  She has a degree in Finance and Marketing from UTA. 

      

    We hire great sales people at Lennox, but no matter how many blue-chips we recruit, they still have to be trained to become true professionals.  Every pro athlete trains hard.  The same applies to sales personnel.  Great salespeople are made, not born. 

     

    In order to succeed in the Territory Managers (TMs) leadership role, our salespeople must master both building relationships and selling HVAC equipment to contractors.  This learning curve often takes as long as two years.  Prospective TMs must literally learn on the job.  It’s the classic catch-22.

     

    To keep our new salespeople motivated, we have developed a custom curriculum that blends online and instructor-led classes and made it all available 24/7 through our Learning Management System. The goal is to increase our sales productivity in the shortest possible time.

     

    Does it work? We tracked total sales revenue and the percentage of sales quota achieved by program graduates versus non-graduates.  Over three years, sales revenue for graduates is 7% higher and quota achievement has improved by 10%.

    You don’t want to miss this session to learn about Lennox’s innovative strategy for onboarding successful Territory Managers.

    If you coach people (and you should be, regardless if you’re a people leader or not), you probably coach the way you were coached. A lot has changed in the coaching world, and we’ll discuss how to get commitment from people when coaching, rather than just cooperation or, worse, compliance. Coaching is also the single most effective activity a sales organization can engage in to positively impact sales. Come and get a brief overview of coaching with Bob, and start exploring how you can significantly impact your organization. After this session, learners will be able to:

    • Understand the misconceptions around coaching

    • Learn that coaching is a long conversation with many discussions

    • Expand their ideas about where coaching can be applied

    • Learn how to follow-up properly on coaching conversations

    Bob has 20+ years of experience in the fields of electronics, sales, and training.  He is presently the Director of Sales L&D at NTT DATA, and his team is responsible for improving the performance of the sales group by directly impacting the behavior of sellers and sales leaders.  Bob has an MBA in Global Business, is originally from Boston, and is a die-hard fan of two baseball teams – the Red Sox, and any team that’s playing against the Yankees.
