Webinar: Talent Development Professionals Community Hour
Start 2021 off on the right foot with a community hour of your fellow Talent Development professionals.
Come reconnect with or meet new colleagues in the Greater Cincinnati TD community and brainstorm about the challenges and topics you'd like to pursue this year.
What is Community Hour?
An hour where we discuss a problem, question, or something you would like to brainstorm. We’ll get through as many of these as possible, during the meeting, and you can leave with solutions. (Example: Susie keeps having scope creep, but isn’t sure why. Others will chime in with how they avoid this.) This heavily relies on community participation.
What do you need to do?
Come prepared with questions you may have, a topic you would like to discuss, or something you’re struggling with, so we can help you!

Learning Leaders SIG Jan. 27: Evaluating Learning Impact
The 2019 McKinsey article, “The Essential Components of a Successful L&D Strategy” revealed only 40% of companies say their learning strategy aligned with business goals.
The number one reason for failure is lack of alignment. A possible solution is Impact Mapping. Impact mapping has three components that may be able to help us achieve a better success rate. The components are capabilities, job performance and organizational outcomes.
In our January session we will discuss how we can understand the goals of the stakeholders to make learning more impactful in our organizations.
