    Most exceptional leaders intentionally engage in habits and even hobbies that improve creativity and innovation, boost personal productivity, build empathy and understanding, increase personal credibility, and positively impact the morale and enthusiasm of others. We’ll explore the habits of leaders such as Bill Gates, Padmasree Warrior, Eric Yuan, Sheryl Sandberg and other top leaders, and how these habits support inspirational and visionary leadership.

    This interactive session will help you strategize about the habits that support your own professional goals:

    • Explore habits of leaders that support creativity, innovation, and diverse perspectives
    • Examine habits of leaders that build empathy and emotional intelligence
    • Evaluate habits of leaders that allow leaders to build morale and engage others

    Come ready to engage in conversation with your colleagues. Group yourselves informally based on your interest in a particular topic (topics compiled by Annie Liao, Former Director Educational Outreach, MakerGear 3D Printers). There will be plenty of time before and after the group discussions to mingle, meet new colleagues and share news at this mid-year milestone. Bring a deck of business cards!

    Small Group Discussion Topics

    Leveraging Learning as an Incentive for Employee Retention: With employee turnover rates climbing, L&D leaders can play a strategic role in increasing retention. Discuss how to demonstrate the cost of attrition to an employer to get their buy-in, as well as explore ways to position learning opportunities as an employee benefit through messaging and value propositions.

    Overcoming the Challenge of Limited Time: So many training needs, so little allocated time! Discuss ways to increase learning opportunities through various micro learning opportunities and on-demand options. 

    Evaluating eLearning Trends: A discussion about emerging trends, and what's working and what's not worth the attention in the eLearning space. Use the opportunity to share rubrics individuals use to determine whether or not emerging technologies or trends are worth incorporating into your development plans. 

    None of the Topics of Interest to You? Start your own small group conversation!

    By 2020, nearly half (46 percent) of all U.S. workers will be Millennials (Lynch, 2008). As a talent development professional, what are you doing to engage these learners? Still doing the same lecture and expecting learner’s engagement? Try jazzing up your training by incorporating virtual reality (VR). VR offers an immersive environment that enables all generations of learners to improve skills and change behaviors through realistic practice. 

    Boingo Wireless has used VR in its teambuilding training to build cross functional communication and stronger relationships. And, VR technologies have become more mainstream. Learning professionals should consider how they can use it in their own organizations.

    At this session you will:

    • Explore how VR can impact the stages of group development
    • Explore how VR can impact global talent development
    • Explore how incorporating VR with training will strengthen the talent pipeline
    • Discuss ways to incorporate VR into your learning projects
    • Discuss the skills gap and how incorporating VR in training can fill it

    Your Facilitator
