    You Are Not Your Attitude – So, Get Up on the Other Side of the Bed! 


    EVENT DESCRIPTION

    Attitude is not good or bad in and of itself. It is the relative position you take to the circumstances that surround you. The key to creating an effective attitude is learning how to take the best possible position in order to get you where you want to go. We will discuss the critical role of emotion as the fuel that fires our attitude and powers us forward and how your paradigm informs the journey.

    Here's to a great night of discovery!

    Discussion topics:

    • Learn what it takes to see attitude as a tool
    • Using attitude to overcome worry and stress
    • Leverage your attitude to realize your personal goals and life desires

    Building Culture and Driving Change - Messaging in Challenging Times


    EVENT DESCRIPTION

    This chapter meeting will focus on the Change Management pillar of ATD's overall competency model.

    Tell the truth – do you welcome disruption in your personal life, in your work team, in your organization? Embracing change is not a natural human reaction – fight or flight are more common responses, even when cracks are showing in the status quo. In a world moving at internet speed, changing to meet new threats and take advantage of new opportunities is necessary, but how can leaders make the pace manageable and do their best to ensure successful transitions for individuals, teams, and organizations?

    Critical communications consultant Bryan Rutberg will share his playbook for helping leaders and their organizations drive change while building a change-embracing culture. Bryan’s work with organizations from local nonprofits to Fortune 500 companies when they need to plan just the right message and to drive it with a targeted and inclusive communication plan. He’ll share stories and tips from his 20-year corporate career and his subsequent experiences as the principal of 3C Comms, a Seattle-based critical communications firm.

    Participants in our monthly meeting will learn key ingredients to driving successful change including:

    • Clear, thoughtful, and directive communications
    • Building a strong and positive messaging framework
    • Developing a management vision and style including adaptability and learning as key pillars

    As always we will have time for questions.


    Speaker Bio - Bryan Rutberg

    Bryan is a strategic communication professional serving leaders and organizations with critical messaging needs. He takes great pride in finding the right story when the stakes are high.

    Bryan works with executives and organizations on high-stakes communications, including role-switching leaders seeking greater success, teams driving key initiatives like mergers/acquisitions, and organizations launching new products or programs. In addition to bespoke consulting, he offers workshops and group coaching on message development, storytelling, and public speaking skills.

    Over his 25+ years as a professional communicator, Bryan climbed the ranks at HP, McKinsey & Company, and Microsoft, where he ran the Executive Briefing Center and served as speechwriter to a member of the company's senior leadership. In addition to his professional interests, Bryan has served on community and nonprofit boards and regularly volunteers for causes close to his and his family's hearts. Bryan received his MBA from the Kenan-Flagler School of Business at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and earned his BA in English Literature from Georgetown University. He lives in the heart of Seattle with his wife of 25 years and their two dogs, Raven and Spotty. Two amazing grown children, Jamie and Teddy, remain in the Puget Sound region.

    THE COACH APPROACH: Leveraging Coaching to Improve Performance


    EVENT DESCRIPTION

    Whether in the role of coach or client, use of the key skills of coaching (effective listening, asking powerful questions, and providing direct feedback) can lead to greater performance through its focused, goal-oriented approach. Regardless of the type of coaching, how it’s used, or for which industry, the customized nature of coaching is ideal to move a “coachee” from the current state to a desired future state as measured by the goals set within the coaching engagement, in turn raising the performance and engagement level of the client as well as that of the coach.

    This interactive session will provide tools and job aids for your tool kit, whether you have experience with coaching, don’t know anything about it, or are somewhere in between. Bring your questions, curiosity, and open mind to start leveraging coaching in your work for greater performance!

    After the session, participants will be able to:

    • Describe and apply the three key skills of effective coaching;
    • Implement a coaching process for increased performance; and
    • Evaluate performance through the use of coaching.
