    July Chapter Meeting

    2017 Excellence in Practice Award Winner Presentation

     “I can’t wait until my performance review!,” said no one ever.  When managers view the performance management process as HR making them fill out lengthy forms, you have missed the target. In top leadership meetings the key question was asked, “Why can’t our people just have conversations and connect?” Connection Conversations has changed the forms to cards and is being woven throughout the culture. Conversations drive engagement, which drives career development, which drives performance and results. Come play cards in this June session and we’ll have a conversation about what really matters in Talent Development.

    August Chapter Meeting

    3rd Annual Top Trainer Throwdown

    Background of the Throw-down

    The name is based on those hokey staged wrestling events where they start with eight men in a ring and all but one will be “throwndown” or eliminated. In the ATD Kansas City Chapter 3rd Annual Trainer Throwdown, YOU, members of our chapter, will compete against each other to see who can “throw-down” their best training technique, tool, or method. Four competitors will have 12 – 15 minutes to prove their stuff and take away the title of 2017 Top Trainer.

    The audience will decide who will be the winner by determining:

    ·         Was I entertained?

    ·         Did I learned something of value?

    ·         Was I engaged?

    ·         Did I find the presentation original or innovative?

    Upon the completion of this event, the competitors will have the additional benefit of:

    ·         Enjoying a FREE chapter meeting

    ·         Winning prizes

    ·         Showing us what they’re made of! 

     Lunch will be provided.

    To throw your hat in the ring as a competitor, click here to submit your name and describe your session.
