    If you have spent any time in the training industry, you know that visuals are a serious asset. Visuals have the power to help our learners absorb information more efficiently, effectively, and for longer periods of time (Gutierrez, K., 2014). So, whether you are working with a graphical designer or alone, it is a good idea to strengthen your understanding of how these assets work! 

    In this session, we will explore readability, expectations, aesthetics, and how to communicate graphical design concepts to each other. In addition, you will receive a shareable job aide to for conducting constructive criticism on your own work in these three areas. By the end of this session, you should have a firmer grasp on how to make effective graphical design choices based on best practices and empirical research.

    Cari Kelly has a BFA in Graphic Design and a Masters in Instructional Sciences, plus years of designing. She works for the Office of Marine and Aviation Operations here in Kansas City.

    In this highly stimulating, interactive event, Andi Burgis explores the correlation between the perceptions, beliefs and judgments our work teams have about each other and the results they achieve. Through unique experiential exercises Andi will demonstrate the extent to which a team’s perceptions about their skills, resources, business environment and each other open up or close off possibilities to what it is they want to achieve.  Participants see for themselves the relationship between what a team thinks to be true and the impact on the goals it establishes for its performance.

    Value to Members:  This program has a high level of transferability back to work teams.  Participants will leave with specific tools to uncover their own team’s deep-rooted beliefs and effective ways to break out of any limiting beliefs, thus setting goals and objectives aligned with a team’s natural capacities. 

    Biography:  Andi Burgis has spent 28 years using experiential based training to develop highly functioning work teams through her company, Challenge-U, LLC.  Andi’s work with numerous Fortune 500 and diverse local companies has given her first hand experience to the challenges facing the corporate world in the development of teams and leaders.

    Andi's current passion is in partnering with horses  as teachers to develop the non verbal communication and emotional intelligence so critical for success in the workplace.
