    Did you know that about 45% of Americans make resolutions for the New Year? Unfortunately, about 22% of resolutions fail after about a week, 40% after a month, 50% after 3 months, 60% after 6 months, and only about 8% ultimately accomplish them. 

    So how do more of us join those 8%?  What lessons can we learn from them? In this interactive session, we'll discuss how elite goal-setters stay focused and complete the objectives they set to achieve.

    Austin Bauer will lead us in this interactive session on how to avoid the distractions, stay focused and achieve the goals we set for ourselves. Join us and put yourself on the path to a successful 2020!  

    At this session  you will:

    • Determine the goals you want to set for 2020
    • Recognize and avoid fear-based responses
    • Learn how to stay the course in stressful situations
    • Come away with tips and resources to enhance your career

    How do you establish the “right” learning strategy in today’s Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (VUCA) organization? What are learning leaders looking for from their teams, their learners and their vendor partners that will help build sustainable impact on their businesses?

    Every organization and industry has unique characteristics that inform the strategy behind their learning and development efforts. At Panera, these characteristics include:

    • Moving from a public, founder-led company to a privately held corporation
    • An industry that celebrates when turnover is below 100% annually
    •  A massively distributed, deskless hourly workforce (140k and growing)
    •  Significant churn of senior executives (3 CEOs in 18 months)
    • Brand threatening external crisis ranging from eColi to data security breaches…
    • And an unwavering commitment to become a disruptive force for good through our food
    • This discussion will pull the curtain back on how learning strategy is really made and help you think through what you can do to help the modern learning function succeed.

    Key Takeaways:

    • What factors learning leaders consider when building a strategy
    • Investigative methods to help ensure leadership buy-in for training initiatives
    • What the learning team should be thinking and doing to maximize their contributions and grow their own careers
    • How leaders see the role of vendor partners in delivering value through the learning function
    • A look at some of the training methods and techniques Panera uses to address the challenges of their industry

    Five interesting facts about diversity*:

    1. Ethnically diverse companies are 35% more likely to outperform other companies...

      Yet studies show that resumes submitted with with non-white sounding names are less likely to get a callback.

    2. Gender diverse companies are 15% more likely to outperform the average company...

      Yet there are fewer Fortune 500 CEOs who are women (4.1%) than those named David (4.5%) or John (5.3%). Two single male names outnumber an entire gender!

    3. Diverse companies bring in more revenue...

      Actually, 15 times more sales revenue than companies with the lowest levels of diversity.

    4. 83% of millennials are more engaged at work when they believe their company fosters an inclusive culture.

Similarly, diversity breeds more creative and innovative approaches to business. According to a 2011 Forbes study, 85 percent of 321 large global enterprises (companies with at least $500 million in annual revenue) agreed that diversity is crucial to creativity and innovation in the workplace.

    From Articulate to Augmented reality, choosing which e-learning product to use for a specific job is a challenging task. Many of us default to what we know, or what our organization has always used, but this lack of adaptability can be limiting and costly. There are more than 110 e-learning tools out there, all claiming to be the silver-bullet solution for every online learning situation. The truth is that there is no single product that fits every project, and you can limit costs and development time by selecting the right tool for a specific job. This interactive presentation will teach you how to select the most cost-effective e-learning tool, based on instructional methods and content requirements. Employing these practices will help you create engaging education for your learners and stay up-to-date on new technologies, while not breaking the bank.

    By the end of the presentation attendees will be able to:

    1.     Provide examples of instructional methods used in effective
    e-learning.

    2.     Select instructional methods and identify e-learning requirements based on content.

    3.     Compare and contrast different types of e-learning design tools through rapid prototyping.

    4.     Create a basic cost-benefit analysis of a selected e-learning design tool.
