    Winter Social: Mind The Gap Step Thoughtfully Into Building Your Career in 2020

    If you’ve ever boarded the Underground in London, you probably remember hearing “Mind The Gap.” Passengers hear this phrase each time they board or exit the train. This simple, repeated reminder helps passengers thoughtfully enter and exit as they journey to their next destination. Whether you are starting your journey in Talent and Development or traveling along your path, we invite you to join us for a networking event to kick off the new year. Mingle with others who share your passions. Take a glimpse at programming to come. Join in honoring those who excelled in 2019 and will be receiving annual learning achievement awards. Prepare to make some thoughtful plans and “Mind The Gap” in your development planning for 2020. We hope you won’t miss this evening of fun.

    • Webinar

    Join ATD Nebraska for this free webinar The talent development profession demands that we become educational consultants and not merely order takers. Whether you are a team of one or twelve, role clarity is paramount in this field to influence your customers or stakeholders, whether your project is beginning or needs to implement sustainability. The Six Boxes Model provides a relatable, visual metaphor to define the division of responsibilities ranging from expectations and feedback to skills and knowledge of desired content. Establish boundaries of accountability and ensure your curriculum infuses the learning preferences of your participants.

    Learning Objectives:

    • After reviewing an illustration of the Six Boxes Model, ATD Nebraska participants will identify two key responsibilities of TD professionals.
    • Given a hypothetical scenario, participants will determine the best approach to hold stakeholder(s) accountable in establishing learner expectations.
    • After completing a brief terminology section on learning preferences, the participants will be able to recognize at least two potential communication styles to optimize learning from a set curriculum.
    • Following an introduction to Whole Emergenetics thinking as one of several models for learning styles, participants will demonstrate at least three motivational differences for learning based on seven unique thinking and behavioral attributes.
