    New Year's Eve is still a few months away, but ATD Detroit is hard at work planning some great events for you in 2020.

    The first one on the schedule is one of many members' favorite events - the Annual Knowledge Share, happening on Tuesday, January 14th, 2020 at 6:00pm at the MSU Management Education Center in Troy. This event is special because of who the presenters are - You!

    We're looking for 5-6 presenters to share their knowledge through three 25-minute tabletop discussions. For each session, you'll present some unique information on a talent development topic of your choice. Then you'll facilitate questions and discussion among the 5-7 participants sitting at your table. After 25 minutes go by, all the participants switch tables and we do it again! Three sessions, three groups of participants learning what you have to share!

    The topic options are endless! We've had presenters talk about a new talent development app or software platform, social media best practices for your career, generational philosophies in the workplace, soft skills, volunteer opportunities, and more! 

    All you have to do to present at the Knowledge Share is complete and submit the application form (www.tinyurl.com/ATDShare) by November 25th! We'll select 5-6 submissions shortly after the deadline passes. All members are eligible to apply!

    If you have any questions, contact the VP of Events Kim Randall at vprograms@detroitatd.org. Can't wait to read your submission!

    At their June meeting, the ATD Detroit Board of Directors unanimously voted on a set of proposed changes to the chapter Bylaws.

    The new Bylaws must first be approved by the membership in an online vote before they can take effect next year. Under the current Bylaws, members must be given 30 days to review any proposed changes to the Bylaws before an online vote can be held. 

    Chapter Members can find the current and proposed Bylaws in the Members Only section, under "2019 Chapter Bylaws Proposal." Note: this page will require a member log in.

    The member vote will take place online during the week of July 15th. More details will be provided closer to the vote. 

    For any questions about the proposed Bylaws or related action taken by the Board of Directors, contact Michael Haynes, chapter President Elect, presidentelect@detroitatd.org.

    Dr. Esther Jackson, our chapter President wanted to share some notes from ICE in Washington DC this year! 

    ATD ICE 2019 soared to new heights this year with Oprah Winfrey, Seth Godin and Eric Whitacre as back-to-back keynotes for three days during the conference in Washington DC. Oprah reminded us about a few life mini-lessons:

    • Do what you have to do until you can do what you want to do.
    • Decisions drive by your ego will land you in trouble: Ask yourself, "Would I be doing this if my name was not on it?"
    • You can't use money to change and improve the lives of people: You must change the way a person thinks, the way a person sees themselves, and the way they choose to move forward.
    • Change the paradigm of whatever your talent is to look at what and how you're offering to be of service beyond you - in your relationships, in your work, etc. 

    Each keynote highlighted a different theme that resonated with me as they all connected to create an "AHA Moment" which was the central theme for the conference.

    Looking forward to ATD taking it back to Denver as we wonder how they will top 2019's line-up! 

    Dr. Esther Jackson, President, ATD Detroit Chapter

    The following post is by Diane Fox (ATD Detroit President Elect), sent live from the ATD International Conference and Expo (ICE) in Atlanta, Georgia.

    Day 3 started on a positive note by participants learning the upside of stress. It might have been pouring outside, butit didn't stop anyone from pushing through to get to the convention hall.

    In the second keynote session, Dr. Kelly McGonigal - famous for her Ted Talk about how stress is actually good for people -expanded on the notion that there is really no such thing as bad stress. Kelly's research suggests that in stressful moments people can accept and harness the stress, let it bring out our best selves, and learn and grow from it. What talent development professional doesn't want to learn and grow from their experiences? Kelly also noted positively that stress makes us kinder, more social, and makes us want to help others.  Her charge for us - turn stress into energy that we can use.

    Concurrent sessions continued today with the longest day of the conference and literally hundreds of options to choose from.  The big buzz around today's sessions came from Bob Pike and Becky Pike Pluth, who in separate sessions demonstrated a great trainer's toolkit and used UMU.com for interactivity in sessions. 

     Several board members attended the #leadlikeagirl session lead by Tacy Byham, CEO of DDI.  Tacy inspired the women (and men) who attended the session to understand that there is a confidence/competence link and gave four action steps for women to continue to lead strongly. It was truly inspiring and I'm charged up to bring these lessons back home!

    Tonight, about a quarter of the 10,000 attending the conference will expand their professional network in the brand new Georgia Aquarium. They will mix and mingle with each other, and perhaps some new exotic friends! They will have access to over 500 exhibits and there will be no shortage of food, fun, and dancing!

    Day 2 started with such passion and excitement. Thousands of Talent Development professionals waited in line to get into a crowded theater to hear first from Tony Bingham, ATD President. 

    Tony's key message was for organizations to continue to embrace micro-learning. We need to rethink how we are delivering micro-learning so that it's more than a "just in time" learning solution.  

    The buzz moved through Tony and into the anticipated opening keynote speakers: Mark and Scott Kelly (you might have heard of them - they're the only twin brothers who ever traveled into space!). Their funny, entertaining and informative session kept the audience intrigued as we learned about space travel and how they became successful. The key takeaways were that we should compartmentalize what we can control, and separate that from what we can't control in order to stay focused on achievable goals. They also talked about how we must always strive to take risks and work hard to achieve real success.  "If we don't take risks, we don't go anywhere."  It's an incredibly valuable message in this world!

    After the keynote sessions, the expo opened this morning. The expo holds an endless supply of vendors to help Talent Development professionals meet their needs and provide critical solutions needed.  It doesn't hurt to have a bottomless supply of giveaways as well, in order to make the experience interactive and fun. We love free stuff! Concurrent sessions continue to provide us with knowledge and key takeaways that we'll surely be able to apply back home in our organizations.

    ICE is awesome! You gotta come with us next year!

    The following post is by Diane Fox (ATD Detroit President Elect), sent live from the ATD International Conference and Expo (ICE) in Atlanta, Georgia.

    The ATD International Conference and Expo has begun with 10,000 professionals descending on Atlanta!  Where else can you find people more dedicated than to give their time a weekend to learn and grow?

    Five board members (Diane, Laura, Kristy, Valerie, and Tarnisha) started their morning with Chapter Leader Day meetings, where sharing best practices gave our leaders awesome ideas to bring back to the chapter. We also learned about the strategic side of things by thinking about ways we can run the chapter more like a business, and how to make strategic business decisions for the best outcomes for the chapter and its members. We rounded out the morning with a ton of networking and celebrating our fellow chapters with awards.

    CPLPs had a CPLP breakfast this morning where we were the first to learn of a new framework that ATD and ATD-CI have developed to give L&D professionals a clear and progressive learning path for themselves. It will also help professionals better understand their own career development paths. This path could start with taking an ATD education program and might end all the way with earning the CPLP credentials.  More to come soon on this as ATD works with chapters and employers to roll this out.

    Last but not least, the concurrent sessions have started.  With hundreds of options each day it's hard to chose a session, but ATD has a great app that keeps our sessions planned.  Pro tips for future conference attendees: talk to others to find out whothe "can't miss" speakers are, and divide and conquer among your team. You can always listen to sessions you miss after the conference ends through the ATD website.

    There's a loud buzz in the air for participants that will last for the next fun filled days to come!

    The following post is by Diane Fox (ATD Detroit President Elect), sent live from the ATD International Conference and Expo (ICE) in Atlanta, Georgia.

    The ATD International Conference and Expo (ICE) pre-conference programs have started with excitement in the air and a peachy Atlanta, Georgia welcome to pre-conference attendees.  

    As Atlanta reaches record temps for this time of year - topping out over 90 degrees - 800 attendees are heating up their excitement in the classrooms. ATD offers almost 50 choices for attendees who want to make the most of their conference experience and join the excitement early. If attendees want a deep dive into content, certificate programs that range in length from 2 to 4 day programs, including 4 master certificate programs.  Nine different 1-day or 2-day workshops are also offered.  

    The pre-conference option offers flexibility for everyone by giving the option to either attend independently or accomplish two goals at once by staying for the full conference. A majority of attendees do end up staying for the full conference.  

    The wide range of topics meet a variety of Talent Development professionals needs, with all the learning offered in one easy place. Experts in the industry such as Jack and Patti Phillips share how to measure ROI, and Mason Holloway continues to share his knowledge on Human Performance Improvement.  

    As it’s already hot outside, the passion for learning with our peers keeps our inner-selves ignited!  

    Have you considered attending an ATD education program?  Even if it’s not during a conference ATD offers online and in person options in a variety of locals helping expand the knowledge of Talent Development professionals everywhere
