    Join ATD EPA for our professional connect discussion on Zoom.

    As we all work through some of the new normals in our lives, its important to leverage our networks.  Your chapter wanted to provide a forum for us to network as professionals and share best practices for similar challenges we're all addressing in our unique work environments.

    Join your member colleagues to share the challenges and productive answers being discovering.

    We'll consider some of these questions to get us going and hopefully a more organic discussion evolves.

    1. What questions do you have moving forward relative to your job and how you will function when COVID is "over"?

    2. Are you anticipating changes/backlog/new procedures?

    3. How are you preparing your workforce for any changes you might be anticipating when you go back to your "brick and mortar" office?

    4. What benefits have you seen, since we all have been implementing the "remote work life" on a regular basis?

    5. What apps are you now using, new or existing, to help you while telecommuting?

    For any questions about this event, email us as director@tdeasternpa.org

    ATD Eastern Pennsylvania is proud to participate in the ATD Regional Webinar Series. This collaboration of 6 ATD chapters (including EPA, Philadelphia, New York City, Mid NJ, Northern NJ, & Long Island) is bringing together the best of our networks to provide world class presenters and content.  We look forward to sharing these webinars with you throughout 2020!

    Session Description:

    A key differentiator of a high performing organization is a culture of accountability. To instill that culture, we look to the leaders to hold their people accountable – through clearly communicated expectations, follow-up and feedback (hopefully combined with coaching). But what if employees were to take the primary responsibility in holding themselves accountable. How much more powerful would that be? Yet we don’t see a lot of this in organizations.

    In this program we will explore how employees can take ownership/personal responsibility (we’ll call it self-accountability) and how to create an environment where employees see the value of holding themselves accountable.


    Learning Objectives:

    • Learn the behaviors that define/demonstrate Self-Accountability (BRAND model)
    • Recognize the fallacy behind certain phrases and their relationship to Self-Accountability
    • Understand why Self-Accountability is not displayed more in companies
    • Learn how to instill Self-Accountability in others (3 Rs)

    Session Description:

    This presentation will help learning professionals glean insight on practical yet valid ways to tell the story of learning impact. It will present an approach that is based on roughly reasonable use of evaluation data and business operations data. Collectively this information can be used to highlight value creation, identify improvements and associate learning to business outcomes.

    Learning Objectives

    At the end of this session, participants will be able to apply this on the job:

    *  Understand evidence as opposed to proof.

    *  Review the types of evidence available to L&D.

    *  Learn how to collect, report and discuss evidence to tell the story of impact.
