    PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    There are numerous triggers of anxiety at work.  Learning and development should not be one of them; however, employees may feel overwhelmed by the prospect of selecting the right learning opportunity from a seemingly countless number of options.  As L&D professionals, we can help reduce the anxiety brought on by the amount of choice, if we:

    • Challenge self-perceptions of learning styles
    • Educate employees on learning terminology
    • Align time commitments and assessments with employees' goals and availability
    • Capture feedback on learning opportunities
    • Provide best practices for learning in different instructional modalities

        BIOGRAPHY

        Dr. David Paredes is an Adjunct Lecturer in Purdue University's Learning Design and Technology graduate program.  He has over 20 years experience in the field of corporate learning and development.

        Giving back to those who give

        Non-Profit Training Day is ATD Hawkeye Chapter's way of saying “Thank you” to all in our communities who give through your work and volunteer efforts.

        Like our award winning program in 2020, our 2021 Non-Profit Training Day returns as a virtual event so we can learn together while also being safe.

        This year, our theme is centered on "Thriving Today: as a Leader, as a Team Member, and as a Volunteer."  We are excited to announce that Heather Woody will be our keynote, which will start the day strong before we move into 90-minute breakout sessions.  As always, the event's sessions will share skills and strategies to apply in your professional or volunteer positions and focus on topics that will further your personal and professional development.

        • Steve Wilson - Managing Conflict: Navigating Areas of Disagreement
        • Skye Mercer - Leading in Times of Uncertainty
        • Angie Chaplin - Everyday People, Extraordinary Leaders: It Doesn't Take a Title to Make Things Happen

        PRESENTER
        Mike Faber

        DATE AND TIME
        June 11, 2021 at 8:00AM

        PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

        Professional (formerly known as "Soft") Skills are the bedrock of great leadership and value-added learning and development.  Without these skills, TD experts can fall victim to training to numbers rather than empowering people.  Mike Faber is the Director of Learning & Development at Fivetran, and has worked in the L&D field for three decades.  In his presentation The 5 Professional Skills Every TD Professional Needs, Mike highlights why these skills are critical to corporate training professionals.  As a benefit to attending this workshop, you'll walk away with tangible action steps that you can take to improve in each of the five key professional skills.  To practice what he preaches, don't expect a slide-heavy monologue from Mike!  This will be a working event, with the chance to share your own experiences in a collaborative, engaging discussion.

        BIOGRAPHY

        Mike Faber is the Director of Learning and Development at Fivetran, a company based in Oakland, California, that automates data integration from source to destination, making data instantly accessible and easy to analyze.  Prior to Fivetran, Mike held learning and development positions with Charles Schwab and Co., Great-West Life, Worldplay, and Zoom.  Before finding his way to L&D, Mike was a TV sportscaster, financial consultant, newspaper columnist, and gameshow host.  Mike has written for numerous online and print publications, and is the author of two books on leadership and sales skills.  Mike and his wife Tracy will celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary in 2021 and live in Parker, Colorado.  Mike can be reached at Mike.Faber@fivetran.com.  To read one of Mike's articles click here.
