Learning Transfer Strategies: Super Charge Your Training
February 19, 2019 | 7:30 - 9:30 AM | Mercer Island Community Center
It is not unusual for training to be designed without much thought to how an organization will evaluate learning impact. Incorporating Learning Transfer Strategies into instructional design supercharges your training. It provides ways of evaluating training success and making sure desired behavior changes stick. How much of the training you deliver is quickly forgotten and never applied? This has little to do with what happens before or during training delivery and everything to do with what happens afterwards. This interactive session draws on the group knowledge to identify why you want to use Learning Transfer Strategies, what they are, and how the effectiveness of them (and associated training) can be measured. Participants will have an opportunity to identify Learning Transfer Strategies they can incorporate into their own training initiatives and ways to measure the success of related behavior change.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
Louise Sportelli is an executive coach and freelance trainer with over 20 years’ experience working with executives, mid-level managers, and teams to improve performance. Her current focus is on creating effective training, delivering great workshops, and coaching executives and others to set goals, take action, and achieve more. She gets a real kick out of seeing clients experience that “aha” moment when they realize a new approach produces concrete results. She has experience working for and with multi-national corporations, non-profit groups, and small businesses, an M.Ed. in Adult Education and Training from Seattle University, and holds an International Coach Federation’s Associate Coach Certification. Outside of work, she enjoys snow skiing (as often as possible), hiking (but not backpacking), visiting the great museums of Europe (and drinking wine afterwards), and reading fiction (happy endings preferred).

Your Personal Dashboard: Recognizing the Signals Before You Crash
February 21, 2019 | 5:30 - 7 PM | Virtual
Our bodies did not come with early warning signals. We don’t have idiot lights on our forearms that tell us when our blood pressure is elevated, our HRV is low, or when our sleep is not sufficient.
While we do not have red flashy lights, we DO have indicators of our own stress and/or wellbeing. To be completely effective, limit our own counter-productive behaviors, and to be more resilient--we need to be aware of our own personal dashboard.
During this interactive session with guest facilitator, Brian Nelson, we’ll discuss how to use a personal dashboard in all aspects of our lives (physical, mental, emotional, and environmental). Participants will explore how to recognize indicators of stress, fatigue and non-resilience in order to make changes before experiencing poor performance or moments of regret.
Here's to a great night of discovery!
Brian Nelson, Leadership Consultant, is co-founder of Grit360, a consulting firm for mental skills, character and leadership development
