ATDChi Event
Title: Modern Mentoring Skill Building Clinic: Building Your Learning Network
Date: Thursday, April 14
Time: 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM
Description: Are you ready for modern mentoring?

Forget the one-to-one relationships that are for the few and the elite. Forget mentors and proteges that fall into and are limited by defined roles and expectations. Forget programs that are highly structured, tightly controlled, and designed with a shelf-life.

Welcome to the 21st Century and modern mentoring. Today, mentoring is about open, flexible and dynamic learning relationships where anyone can take part, anyone can connect to share information and insights, and anyone can be a learner or advisor. This is the modern mentoring, and it is here to stay.

During this interactive session, you will learn how to build your own learning network, or your own personal board of learning directors. Specifically, you will:

  • Participate in an “Ask the Expert” exercise
  • Learn about the factors that define modern mentoring
  • Examine generational issues related to mentoring
  • Discover ways to bring a modern approach to mentoring to organizations

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.

ODN Chicago Event
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?

Together, we shall develop a broader perspective that will generate a larger range of innovative, possible interventions. Join us to up your ante and change your game.
