Writing Behavioral Objectives with guest speaker: Allan Harris
Ready to add behavioral objectives to your training in order to create trace-ability and linkage between your training and the evaluation of training? Join our ATD Las Vegas Chapter on July 21st at Nevada State Bank. Guest presenter, Allan Harris of Zions Bank Corporation will teach participants how creating strong objectives allows L&D professionals to better target training toward specific behaviors...creating better outcomes in the end.
Allan has been in L&D for more than 20 years as a designer, facilitator & manager. He has worked with all levels of learners and leaders using a blended approach to training solutions.
Does your Learning & Development team have a vision? Are you able to build alignment around that vision at all levels of the organization and get buy-in from C-Suite? Do you have an opportunity to champion execution of that vision? If you answered no to any of these questions, you will want to attend this session!
To create a highly personalized learner experience, you will respond to the Work of Leaders Profile, which focuses on tangible steps directed at leading a group or organization toward desired outcomes. The profile is the foundation of this session and therefore completion of this assessment prior to the workshop is essential. The profile is leadership-specific with in-depth information, including tips, strategies, and action plans to help leaders become more effective. You will have an opportunity to share with your fellow L&D colleagues what works and what doesn’t work in your company or organization.

Connecting is a skill you can learn and apply in your personal, professional, and family relationships."

Do your metrics and measures spotlight issues, or are you simply measuring errors and volumes? Best-of-breed companies are using root-cause analysis, issues logs, and scorecards to improve efficiency, resolve upstream challenges, and organize work cross-functionally to improve performance across various departments throughout organizations. What are you waiting for? Let’s get started!
In this session, ATD Chapter Members will uncover potential areas for performance gaps, plus root cause analysis steps, tools, models, and examples.
The performance metrics discussion will specifically address ways to overcome “fear factors”: resistance, cynicism, increased workload, not performing as expected, and results will make you look bad.
Our guest speaker will be Steve Hodgson, CPP, CPLP.
