    The Power of Habit:  Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business By Charles Duhigg (2012)


    Please sign up by March 16 at www.astdmemphis.org, so that we can turn in a count to the restaurant. Food and beverage costs are on your own. Feel free to have dinner or a light snack.

     

    Did you make New Year’s Resolutions that you’ve already failed to keep?  Are you falling back into old, comfortable habits—even if you don’t like the outcomes you are getting?

    Join fellow ATD-Memphis members for dining and  discussion of Charles Duhigg’s book The Power of Habit.  While habits often determine our own personal success, habits are also what comprise corporate culture, national culture, community culture, and family culture.  Consequently, if we want to make changes either individually or as part of a culture, habits might be the best place to start.


    OVER 60 WEEKS ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST

    
 “In The Power of Habit, Pulitzer Prize–winning business reporter Charles Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. Distilling vast amounts of information into engrossing narratives that take us from the boardrooms of Procter & Gamble to sidelines of the NFL to the front lines of the civil rights movement, Duhigg presents a whole new understanding of human nature and its potential. At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, being more productive, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. As Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.”  (Amazon.com)

    Training from the View of the Learner

    We all know that training must meet the needs of the organization. But what about the needs of the learner. In this dynamic session, you will see the importance of meeting one type of audience - sales professionals - at their level of need.  See how the training should look from their point of view. Consider how to use available tools to engage sales teams.

    While this session focuses on sales professionals in particular, the information presented can be applied to most occupations.

    Hello, I'm Pattie Barnes, National Sales Director for SpokenHere Communications.  How unique that my career is broken into 15 year segments. For my first 15 years I worked as Formulations Chemist for Maybelline.  I spent the next 15 years in sales in the printing industry. My last 15 years have been in the language industry beginning with sales and now as the Sales Director for SpokenHere.

    Need to brush up on your Adobe Captivate skills? Or learn them from scratch?

    Dive in and learn how to use Adobe Captivate in this hands-on series of workshops. You don’t need any experience with this engaging software to join the class; learn beginning and advanced techniques along with best practices. Get slick production tips, tricks and best practices that will make your e-learning the best it can be. Receive expert guidance on building lively customized interactions, screen characters, innovative quizzes, high-quality recording, and effective collaboration with other software.

    Do I need to attend all three days of workshops? It depends on your level of use -

    Current Captivate 8 users

    • Pick and choose the days you want to attend.

    New Captivate 8 users

    • You are highly encouraged to attend all three days if you're new to Captivate 8, even if you have used previous versions of Adobe Captivate. The changes to the tool are THAT significant!

    What should I bring? You should bring your laptop with a working version of Adobe Captivate 8. (Note: Captivate 8 is a significant change from earlier versions, so be sure to have Captivate 8 installed. Prior versions do not have all the features of Captivate 8.)

    What if I don't have Captivate? You can download a free 30-day trial version of Captivate from Adobe.com. If you have an expired trial on your laptop then, rather buying the product, you can take out a month-to-month subscription via the Adobe website.

    What are the workshop hours? Each workshop will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 4:00 p.m., with an hour break for lunch.

    Will you feed me? Yes! We're not like most workshops where you get a map of nearby restaurants as part of your packet. We want you to get the most from this training, so we're providing a hot lunch each day of training.

    What about dinner? We're glad you asked. On Wednesday evening, May 6 (day three of training), we are conducting an e-Learning Round Table discussion and dinner with three e-learning gurus. If you register for two or three days of training, you can attend the dinner for FREE! You'll still need to register for the dinner just so we can include you, and we'll tell you how in an e-mail after you register for the workshop. Seating at the dinner is limited to 50 participants, so register for this workshop no later than March 29 to be sure you get a seat at the dinner. Beginning March 30, we will open up dinner registration to those not attending the workshop.

    WORKSHOP CONTENT

    If you're new to Captivate or you simply plan to absorb all there is to offer, register for all three days, pack up your laptop, and come spend three days with us. BUT, if you want to pick and choose the days you want to attend, that's OK too. Pick any one or two days you want. We're flexible!
