    Creating Materials in Sync with the Brain

    Transferring knowledge is a core skill in talent development. Most facilitators and instructional designers focus on what information to cover without regard for how the brain processes that information.

    This session will introduce participants to the field of Cognitive-based Information Design (CID). CID (pronounced “sid”) puts the research on human perception and cognition into action by providing a systematic way to improve visual communication, print materials, and electronic resources.

    Learning CID principles is a great way to strengthen your communication skills. Whether you are a manager making slide decks for meetings, an instructional designer building e-learning courses, or a facilitator creating handouts, CID can help you engage your audience, focus their attention, and retain what they've learned.

    This event supports several elements in the ATD Competency Model, including
    Instructional Design, Training Delivery, and Knowledge Management.

    About the presenter, Phil Ransom

    Phil Ransom helps executives design & deliver their written and spoken messages with vision, purpose, & clarity, in their voice, so they and their companies thrive.

    Cognitive-based Information Design enables Phil to design messages consistent with how the brain processes information, and Phil is CID certified as both professional writer and presenter.

    Using CID, he helped a Milwaukee CEO prepare talks delivered in 2017 in Monterrey, Mexico, Beijing, Shang Hai, New Delhi, and several US Cities.

    He’s repurposed annual reports as collateral pieces for donor and volunteer recruitment. He’s designed capital campaign materials and an array of fund-raising documents for his non-profit clients. 

    A Wausau attorney client released her first book in late 2019 -Phil was her editor- and he’s now collaboratively developing mastermind group materials and social media presence. 

    Phil learned early-on that well-told stories are often the best way to make a point. His aim is always that listeners hear, understand, and then DO! Soft-spoken, light-hearted, yet compelling, he simplifies the complicated and presses courage into the faint-hearted.  He’s secretly hoping these CID insights benefit you for years to come.

    The Business Case for Emotional Intelligence

    When emotional intelligence first appeared to the masses in 1995, it served as the missing link in a peculiar finding: people with average IQs outperform those with the highest IQs 70% of the time. This anomaly threw a massive wrench into what many people had always assumed was the sole source of success—IQ. Decades of research now point to emotional intelligence as the critical factor that sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack.

    Emotional intelligence is the “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results. Emotional intelligence is made up of four core skills that pair up under two primary competencies: personal competence and social competence.

    What you will learn:

    • What it means to be an emotionally intelligent person
    • Learn strategies to manage emotions
    • Reading body language with emotional intelligence
    • Managing your emotions in the workplace

    The Emperor's New Clothes - Fooling Ourselves about Training Impact


    Session description: Two hundred years ago, Hans Christian Andersen showed in his short story "The Emperor's New Clothes" how easily people can fall prey to something that is not true. Over the last 30 years, research into how we learn has proved that many things we take for granted in L&D don't hold up to scrutiny and that it is time to radically rethink how we teach people. In this thought-provoking session, we'll explore three key learning science concepts and how recent developments in learning technologies can use this science for dramatically better learning outcomes.

    Don't Just Tell - SHOW Your Impact on the Business

    Session Description

    Everyone in leadership is responsible for making an impact on their business. In order to make an impact, you need to be a strategic leader who makes smart data-driven decisions even if you are mired in the day-to-day tactics of the business. We will discuss WHY strategic leadership is so important in the L&D function and compare tactical with strategic leadership characteristics. We will review WHAT leaders do to show up and stay strategic. We will see HOW to be more strategic by creating a custom Impact Blueprint™ that you can use to demonstrate alignment between a learning investment/initiative and the corporate goals. We will select your smart metrics to demonstrate business impact.

    Session Learning Objectives

    • Develop the foundational skills necessary to come across as a strategic partner to the business.
    • Create a development plan for taking your strategic leadership to the next level.
    • Create a strategic plan that supports what the organization is trying to achieve.
    • Identify the areas where learning can impact the business in ways that matter.
    • Connect learning’s efforts to business results using business data.
    • Make smart decisions and keep learning as you go to ensure you stay on top.

    Pre-work

    To the session bring:

    • A laptop
    • A personal development plan you are comfortable sharing
    • An example of a current learning investment/initiative for which you want to assess business impact.
    • If available, bring a list of metrics you expect the investment to impact such as operational metrics, business metrics from your annual report, and any other KPIs. Your metrics will be confidential to you and not shared publicly.

    Authentic Confidence: The Secret to Loving Your Work and Leading an Unstoppable Career

    Ego, arrogance and narcissism commonly describe ineffective leadership. Nobody likes a show off, but it also doesn’t work to shrink into the shadows. Communicating the appropriate amount of confidence in every situation is an essential leadership skill and Authentic Confidence is the secret.

    Creator and Confidence Coach, Ben Fauske had significant confidence issues early in his career and he was miserable. After years of studying confidence, he discovered a pattern used to overcome confidence issues and find success. He has since taught thousands of leaders how to elevate their influence and enhance their leadership brand. Leaders are either looking to find confidence (91% of new leaders have significant confidence issues) or learning how to coach confidence in others.

    Ben will be sharing his latest research and strategies in this session. He will also be launching his book Authentic Confidence: The Secret to Loving Your Work and Leading an Unstoppable Career with Morgan James Publishing in May of 2020.

    In the Authentic Confidence Session you will:

    • Understand the biology and core beliefs of world-class influencers.
    • Learn the Confidence Profiles and how they impact talent and team development.
    • Increase the clarity of your communication in building culture.

    Learn how to find, lead and coach Authentic Confidence.
