    Have you ever wondered what CPLP was about?  Ever wondered why I would become CPLP certified?  Ever wonder if there was any way of defraying some of the costs associated with becoming CPLP certified?    As an employer, ever wonder what the value is to having your team CPLP certified?

    These questions and so many more will be answered in a webinar on May 9th from noon until 1:30.   Trish Uhl owner of Owl’s Ledge will be leading the webinar.  Trish helped write the questions for the first CPLP test and travels the world coaching people on CPLP and preparing them for the test.

    Join us for part or all of the webinar.  This is a no cost  webinar.  Register at,


    Join us on June 10th at noon to chat with our very own Hawkeye ASTD members who are CPLP certified and those that have taken the test and are work on phase 2 of their certification.  These “rock stars” will be available to answer questions and talk about why they made the choice to seek CPLP certification.  


    Questions?  Please contact Marcie Van Note at or 319-270-2004.

    June 13---Graphic Facilitation and Meeting Facilitation presented by Joan McIntosh in Dubuque. A little about the session:

    Have you recently seen someone bring their meetings alive by using colorful charts in creative ways and thought … “I want to do that!”  What if you could support your client’s innovation needs by bringing professional and practical tools and techniques?  Is this that moment you’ve been waiting for to refresh your personal design and flipchart skills?

    Please help us promote this event, too. Click here for a printable flyer.

    The quality most needed among teammates amidst the pressure of a difficult challenge is collaboration. Becoming a collaborative team player requires a change in four areas:


    1.Perception: See teammates as collaborators, not competitors-completing one another is more important than competing with one another.


    2.Attitude: Be supportive, not suspicious, of teammates-if you trust people, you will treat them better. And both you and they will be more likely to create collaborative relationships.


    3.Focus: Concentrate on the team, not yourself-author Cavett Roberts points out, "True progress in any field is a relay race and not a single event." If you focus on the team and not just yourself, you will be able to pass the baton when necessary.


    4.Results: Create great victories through multiplication-collaboration has a multiplying effect on everything you do, because it releases and harnesses not only your skills but those of everyone on the team.


    The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player, John Maxwell
