ATDChi Networking Dinner
Date: Thursday March 10, 2016
Time: 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Title: Value: How Are You Demonstrating It?
Description: Do you find it challenging to describe the value of your time and skills in ways that are meaningful to your clients? Whether you an internal or an external consultant—and isn’t that all of us?—this session is about how you can effectively communicate the value of your work graphically and in a story that will set you apart from your competition.

You will find out what others have done and discuss the implications on your own work, get a detailed description of what constitutes value so you can better define what you offer in ways that are detectable and different, and get practice transforming what you do into outcomes clients see as meaningful.

Date: Thursday, March 10, 2016
Time: 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Title: Employment Engagement Surveys: Helpful or Hurtful?
Description: Recent Gallup survey data indicates that less than 30% of employees are engaged in their work and this number hasn’t moved in over 25 years of Gallup surveying. They have also found, through extensive corporate interviews, that 7 out of 10 managers are clearly not effective or good at managing and leading (1 out of 10 is a “natural” and 2 out of 10 can be trained to be good).

What conclusions should we draw from their observations? Why are so many employers investing in surveys but not necessarily in changing their work places?
