ATD 2019 – Are You Ready to Take Action?
Where can you meet Oprah AND Unboxed in person? Only at the world's largest talent development conference, of course! The ATD 2019 Conference is fast approaching, and we’re excited to join L&D professionals from across the country. Come say hello to us at Booth #1425!
Starting with the End in Mind
Once the conference is over, the question becomes, how do you take your new learnings and opportunities and really make an impact back at the office?
Consider this: without reinforcement, 50% of information is forgotten within one hour and 90% is forgotten within a week. It seems disappointing that you might walk away with only 10% of the inspiring content you hear at ATD.
If you keep that thought going, of that 10% of information that you remember from ATD, how much of that are you going to use to implement change for your learners? How much of what you implement will learners retain? And the million-dollar question, how much of what learners get trained on will impact their performance and ultimately your company’s bottom line?
Well, enough of that glass is half empty stuff! There is hope and you’ll be amazed at how easy it can be to implement the change your company needs.
The answer is simple and yet overlooked: Action-oriented learning. It’s the transfer of knowledge and ideas into real, on-the-job, actions that translate into better performing employees. Learning should never be a one-time, static event. Following the intake of new information, a learner should immediately have an action or a way to put into practice what was just learned in order to reinforce and retain that information. While this is not a brand-new idea or concept, it is difficult to put into practice for a variety of reasons including lack of buy-in, funding, or time.
Our goal for the ATD 2019 conference and training in general, for that matter, is for you and your learners to take meaningful action that will positively impact behaviors and your company’s goals.
Hear from Leaders at LinkedIn and Hilton
Any learning philosophy is only as good as its results. We'll be featuring our work with L&D leaders from LinkedIn and Hilton, and the success they've had with action-oriented experiences to engage and challenge modern learners while driving large-scale change.
Join unboxed's panel discussion on principles of the modern learner on sunday, may 19th from 1:30 - 2:30 p.m. ET
Email email@example.com if you’d like us to save you a seat!
Experience a One-of-a-Kind AR Demo
We also can’t forget to mention our Booth #1425. Stop by during the expo hours to experience some of the ways we’re using AR in training today. You can also meet some friendly Unboxed team members and pick up some “action-oriented” swag.
