Don't miss out on this opportunity to enhance your skills and contribute to the success of your organization. This will be an insightful and inspiring evening dedicated to the fascinating world of behavioral science!

    March Topic

    Behavioral Change Techniques: Too often, the percentage of learners who apply the skills they learn is excessively low. As talent development professionals, we all want to see this percentage skyrocket. This month, the ATD's Behavioral Science SIG will examine effective strategies and interventions to facilitate actual behavioral change in professional development contexts. Join Jay Johnson as he leads a conversation on developing best practices for inspiring real-world results through training and talent development programs.

    What's a SIG?

    Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are small groups of members who share an affinity for a particular aspect of Talent Development. Whether it's a specific approach, a certain skill, or a common role in the industry, a SIG helps bring chapter members together to share in an interest.  

    Anyone can start a SIG - all it takes is a shared interest and a meeting place! To learn more, contact the Chapter President, president@detroitatd.org.

    Join for an in-person networking and a fantastic presentation!

    Priti is a TEDx speaker on The Art of Receiving Feedback. This started with a behavioral study Priti created and completed while working at General Motors to evaluate the effectiveness of teaching feedback to my leaders and peers. The success of this study has now brought Priti to deliver this talk on a global level outside of General Motors, benefiting a variety of audiences, from adolescents to executive leaders. I Priti explores the transformative power of feedback and how it can shape our personal and professional lives. Through insightful anecdotes and practical advice, Priti highlights the importance of embracing feedback as a catalyst for growth and self-improvement. Please join Priti for an interactive, engaging workshop to help us ignite the conversation of how we can handle feedback to improve our quality of life and become stronger leaders.  

    1. Discover ways to address unsolicited or solicited feedback productively.
    2. Explore obstacles within ourselves that limit us from receiving feedback.
    3. Evaluate our unconscious "trust circle" we currently use to assess the validity of the information we receive and the potential to expand our resources to receive candid feedback

    How can you begin whispering in your clients' ears about improving performance with non-training solutions, while continuing to develop skill-and-knowledge interventions?
