When you reach your fullest potential, you can effectively develop the talent around you, giving your organization the ultimate competitive advantage—a workforce that is prepared to face the demands of today’s ever-changing business environment.– Association for Talent Development (ATD)
Organizations today face an overwhelming leadership challenge. Demand for leadership support far outstrips the resources most organizations have to meet it. As a result, new leaders, critical projects, and transformations fail more often than they succeed.
A bustling hub of talent development
Come May, talent developers and professionals from around the world will flock to Washington DC for this year’s ATD Conference. 2018’s conference drew a crowd of over 10,000 professionals across hundreds of industries – from finance moguls to healthcare powerhouses – so it’s no surprise that ATD is admired as the world’s most comprehensive talent development conference.
With over 400 exhibition booths, hundreds of talks and sessions, and a stellar lineup of keynote speakers (we’re talking Oprah Winfrey – hold the applause), you’ll find no shortage of knowledge surrounding best talent development practices. ATD provides an unparalleled opportunity to peek behind the curtain of the industry’s leading talent development organizations and see how they’ve nurtured success from the ground up.
Sustainment and democratization – why does it matter?
Our goal at AchieveForum is to empower people to lead successfully in turbulent business landscapes. We need to shift our mindset from preparing a few leaders for specific situations to helping all leaders succeed in every situation. It’s time for a new approach.
Sustainable behavior change requires a completely different model. Our research shows that 90% of effort in the Learning & Development sector is expended on learning methodologies and individual support while most impact comes from environment and group behavior. Quite simply, without sustainment change initiatives will fail.
Join us May 19th at 4:30PM for our session on Leadership Development That Lasts. Hear from Scott Bohannon, AchieveForum CEO, and Ellen Foley, Executive Consultant, about first-hand experiences, best practices, and how to make it all stick. See how we’re pushing boundaries, learn about our Behavior Catalyst System Simon (brand new to industry!), and work with us in understanding the importance of democratized access for all.
Get to know AchieveForum
While you won’t want to miss our session (spoiler: we’ve got some giveaways up our sleeves), there are other ways to connect with us at ATD. We’ll be located at Booth 518 from start to finish.
Beat the crowd and schedule a 15-minute chat with AchieveForum ahead of time to learn more in a one-on-one setting. Meet our client directors, try Alliance and Simon demos, and get ready to dive head-first into a new approach to leadership.
