Emotional Intelligence 2.0

Drawing from the research of Travis Bradbury and her experiences at the ATD International Conference and Expo, Katie Swinn will take us on a journey through Emotional Intelligence 2.0 and how it is the foundation for anything in life and leadership.

Katherine (Katie) Swinn over 15 years of training experience.  Her love of training began when she became a certified Red Cross Instructor and a diving instructor for Scuba Schools International.  She received a Master's Degree from UNLV in Workplace Learning and Performance.  She currently works for Bureau of Reclamation in Boulder City where she designed, developed and delivered over 25 courses.  She is certified in DiSC, MBTI, Bronze Kirkpatrick and Verbal Judo.

Making Learning Stick - Learnatics

With an average of only 15% that attend our training actually make a change in behavior, how can we as learning professionals help our learning stick?  Bringing information and research from MindGym, we’ll discuss how to create “learnatics.”  Learnatics are those that are enthusiastic and passionate about learning that become internal evangelists that help drive transfer within the organization.  What is it about that 15% that drives the transfer?  We’ll discuss how to leverage their drive and learn how to broaden those traits with other learners.

Jason Gardner, CPLP, is the Administrator of Organizational Development at Southwest Gas.  His department provides leadership and talent development to more than 2200 employees in three states.  Prior to joining Southwest Gas, Jason spent more than 13 years of experience in the gaming and hospitality industry.

He has delivered programs to a broad range of employees from front line staff to executive level leaders, using various methods and platforms from webinars and e-learning courses to classroom facilitation and instructor led training.  As one of the first CPLPs in Southern Nevada, his work product submission was in the Delivering Training area of expertise, where his passion lies in maximizing the potential of every employee.

Action Learning 

Amanda Rael will facilitate a breakout session on Action Learning. As learning professionals we are constantly fighting a battle to justify leadership training, prove ROI/impact, or just get people to take time away from their work to gain additional skills. That is where Action Learning can help! In Action Learning, a team is brought together to solve a current workplace problem. While they meet, an Action Learning Coach will point out learning opportunities and in doing so, helps the team members become self-aware, and in building new skills. Action learning is about questioning and reflecting. The benefits include solving organization issues, immediate transfer of learning, team learning, and leadership skills. Join us in this session to learn more about action learning and participate in a short Action Learning session.
