Brain science has infused adult learning, training, and development with a set of tools that enable learning practitioners to create learning experiences in bold new ways. One of those tools is Cognitive Load (CL). Through deconstructing principles of CL and applying them to sample and current learning projects, participants will enhance learning experiences by creating ways to anchor them in the brain.

2020 has called all of us to reflect and grow in ways we couldn’t have possibly imagined. The day-to-day that seemed so routine and predictable has been flipped on it’s head in 2020. Leaders have now been asked to support their teams in a global crisis while still being required to deliver great results to our customers, clients and patients. Leaders have been called to walk the fine line of tending to the people on their teams while still ensuring that individuals are living in a high-state of accountability. This complex balance has challenged everyone to some deeper personal reflection and called us to new levels of greatness when it comes to our ability to move forward with uncertainty. In the midst of pivoting to the “new normal” and making sure tasks are still completed, many have turned down the dial on our own wellness and mindfulness. In this session, leaders will come to understand a simple and practical model for gracefully leading teams through the 5 stages of crisis or uncertain times which will help discern moments to grow accountability in the individuals they lead Leaders will review the core concepts of the No Ego philosophy and learn the common sources of drama at work to ensure everyone they interact with is understanding how their mind works and our common defaults in times of stress that can amplify into grander problems both physically and emotionally. Lastly, leaders will learn some simple tools that fuel connection and clarity that help prevent division, judgment and disconnection from teams especially in a more virtual world.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

Research has shown that learners remember 12% of what they are exposed to through training, and yet we spend such pain-staking time developing the content for it. How do we increase that knowledge retention and motivate a long-term personal commitment in our learners to their development? Join fellow members to brainstorm how performance support tools can shrink the learning gap and increase engagement after the formal training ends.

Feedback is a critical part of performance. The way you give and receive feedback directly affects the outcomes of your team. If you’re like most people, the feedback you provide is often vague, inconsistent, nuanced, and generally ineffective. To unlock real performance improvement- you must learn how to utilize feedback effectively. It’s a game changer for your team. In this session, Amber will teach you how to give feedback that is timely, specific, and simply more effective. She’ll share how to set meaningful performance expectations, address unmet expectations effectively, and performance feedback timelines and processes to improve performance. She’ll provide you with a set of tools that you can begin using today to deliver feedback, to not only transform your team, but your entire organization. So, if you’re ready– let’s go.
