    Level 1 - Smile Sheets? Huh?

    Level 2 - Did I learn anything during training today?

    Level 3 - Why are you here testing me, I went to training months ago...

    I've never even have heard of Level 4 and Level 5 assessments, let alone seeing one done.

    Do you have similar questions when it comes to writing and performing assessments? Or, do you want to be able to write assessments that really test the important items and give you data you can use to determine the effectiveness of your training? If either of these questions' answers is "YES!!!", then the ATD Las Vegas Chapter has an event for you. Our own chapter's member, Wes Miller will be leading The Las Vegas Learning Lab on May 25, 4-5:30 pm to discuss writing effective assessments. Come join us.

    Minimalist Leadership for the Modern Workplace: Four practices to double your team's performance without doubling your effort


    Onsite, remote, hybrid… Gen X, Millennials, and now Gen Z. The modern workplace is more diverse than it has ever been, and it’s not just location. Everything is different than it used to be, and with newer generations entering the workforce, everyone is different, too. The common refrain: how do we LEAD when things are so different than they used to be?

    What we used to call “leadership” is no longer serving us. Just look at all that’s happened with The Great Resignation.

    We’re all looking for ways to be effective without working around the clock. Being a leader or manager doesn’t have to mean taking on extra work, especially when your team has questions or doesn’t know how to get something done. You don’t need to be their gopher! What you need is to be a MINIMALIST LEADER.

    In this session, discover four practices that will empower you to double your team's performance without doubling your effort. Discover what it takes to transform your team of doers into a team of leaders. Discover what it is to be a leader in today's workplace and leave the session ready to be a Minimalist Leader.

    Session Objectives:

    • Examine the traits a person must demonstrate today to be viewed as a leader by the people they work with (HINT: this is NOT what it used to be)
    • Distinguish four minimalist leadership practices to embody the traits from LO # 1 and employ with any team to double their performance without doubling effort required by the leader
    • Identify the next actionable step each participant can take to bring these practices to life in their professional situation

    We all grew up with knowing the phrase "Reading is FUN-damental". Our parents and teachers used the phrase to get us excited about reading and opening our minds to new possibilities. Well, now that we are professionals, Reading is STILL Fun-damental. The Las Vegas Library of Learning invites you to join us in reading and discussing "Measurement Demystified: Creating your L&D Measurement, Analytics, and Reporting Strategy" by David Vance and Peggy Parskey on Wednesday, June 29, 4:00-5:30 p.m. 

    Most people find measurement, analytics, and reporting daunting—and L&D professionals are no different. As these practices have become critically important for organizations’ efforts to improve performance, talent development professionals have often been slow to embrace them for many reasons, including the seeming complexity and challenge of the practices. Few organizations have a well-thought-out measurement and reporting strategy, and there are often scant resources, limited time, and imperfect data to work with when organizations do attempt to create one.

    Measurement Demystified: Creating Your L&D Measurement, Analytics, and Reporting Strategy is a much-needed and welcomed resource that breaks new ground with a framework to simplify the discussion of measurement, analytics, and reporting as it relates to L&D and talent development practitioners. This book helps practitioners select and use the right measures for the right reasons; select, create, and use the right types of reports; and create a comprehensive measurement and reporting strategy.

    Recognizing the angst and reluctance people often show in these areas, authors and experts David Vance and Peggy Parskey break down the practices and processes by providing a common language and an easy-to-use structure. They describe five types of reports, four broad reasons to measure, and three categories of measures. Their method works for large and small organizations, even if yours is an L&D staff of one or two. The guidance remains the same: Start small and grow.

    Measurement Demystified is a great first book for talent development professionals with no prior knowledge of or experience with measurement and a valuable resource for measurement experts. Those adept at lower levels of training evaluation will grow their knowledge base and capabilities, while measurement experts will discover shortcuts and nuggets of information to enhance their practices. A more comprehensive treatment of these important topics will not be found elsewhere

    You can purchase the book at both the ATD Store - https://www.td.org/books/measurement-demystified or Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/Measurement-Demystified-Creating-Analytics-Reporting/dp/1950496899/ref=sr_1_3?crid=3L9FHAH02UKRC&keywords=measurement+demystified&qid=1646494414&s=books&sprefix=measurement+de%2Cstripbooks%2C250&sr=1-3.

    We all grew up with knowing the phrase "Reading is FUN-damental". Our parents and teachers used the phrase to get us excited about reading and opening our minds to new possibilities. Well, now that we are professionals, Reading is STILL Fun-damental. The Las Vegas Library of Learning invites you to join us in reading and discussing "Confessions of a Corporate Trainer" by Jonathan Halls on Wednesday, August 31, 4:00-5:30 p.m. 

    Embrace the Gritty Reality of Training

    Ever watched half your class stomp out on you? Fallen asleep facilitating a creativity workshop? Planned a bulletproof lesson plan then dropped it 10 minutes after you started? Don’t worry—it’s fine to confess.

    If you have faced a surprise in the training room, chances are Jonathan Halls has seen it too. As a result, he doesn’t pretend to be a shiny happy trainer anymore; his 25-plus years of training and facilitating in 25 countries have taught him not to stress over a less-than-flawless class—and helped him focus less on himself and more on letting his learners shine.

    In Confessions of a Corporate Trainer: An Insider Tells All, Jonathan tells relatable and charming stories of what corporate training is really about, drawing from his highly rated train-the-trainer workshops and hundreds of honest conversations with like-minded trainers.

    He recounts the curve ball he was thrown midway through a change management workshop in Zagreb, Croatia—and how it showed him the futility of overplanning. He shares the time a fire alarm disrupted a training program he led in Washington, D.C., and how he embraced the interruption. And he reflects on what conspires to knock trainers off their game (psst: demanding clients, heavy workloads, and frequent travel are only a few of the culprits).

    Discover the gritty reality of training. Confessions of a Corporate Trainer will entertain you, challenge you, and remind you why you as a trainer are so important in today’s workplace.

    Confessions of a Corporate Trainer is the recipient of a Gold Star Award from the Nonfiction Authors Association Book Awards Program.

    You can purchase the book at both the ATD Store - https://www.td.org/books/confessions-of-a-corporate-trainer or Amazon -https://www.amazon.com/Confessions-Corporate-Trainer-Insider-Tells/dp/1947308920/ref=sr_1_1?crid=2ACO2WWJ7GUHC&keywords=confessions+of+a+corporate+trainer&qid=1646494830&sprefix=confessions+of+a+corporate+tra%2Caps%2C114&sr=8-1.
