Training & Development Summit in Boston, MA
April 23 & 24, 2018

Event Workshops Include...

Five Tools to Own Your Career & Build an Engaged Workforce (CERTIFIED SEMINAR)
Presented by Taura Prosek Director, Bus. Dev & Executive Coach, Stewart Leadership

Pre-approved for 1 hour of general recertification credit toward PHR and SPHR recertification through HRCI. Also valid for 1 PDC for the SHRM-CP or SHRM-SCP.

Program overview:

Employees today are seeking career management and career development support and resources and many organizations aren’t equipped with the knowledge, tools, and resources to meet this demand.  In a similar way that leaders are responsible for determining the future vision of the organization, employees are responsible for determining the future of their careers. By arming our employees with some tips and techniques to take ownership of their careers, a more engaged workforce will result. A career management framework will be presented including the topics of discovery, personal branding, and networking, and synergies will be identified between performance management processes and systems and other leadership development efforts.

Learning Objectives:

  1. A career management framework will be presented that can be customized for implementation at any organization.
  2. Career coaching questions will be created to support the career conversations between hiring leaders and their employees.
  3. Participants will share ideas and best practices related to incorporating career management, development, and advancement into current talent management systems and processes.



What if Everything You Know about Personality Styles Training is Wrong?
Presented by Merrick Rosenberg, CEO & Cofounder, Take Flight Learning

It is Time to Rethink How We Teach the Styles in the Workplace

The DISC profile is one the most commonly used assessment tools in corporations around the world. And yet, while people find it interesting – and why not, if there is one thing that people like to learn about, it is themselves – awareness does not often translate into sustained behavioral change.

This highly interactive and engaging session will focus on the following:

  • Why this is the perfect time to introduce or reintroduce DISC training to your organization
  • Turning classroom-based DISC training into a fun and engaging experience
  • Transforming DISC training into a process not an event by reinforcing the learning throughout the year
  • Refocusing DISC training from awareness to results
  • Repackaging the styles to shift from empty letters to metaphoric symbols
  • Revitalizing training to involve the participants
  • Reallocating time from profiles and graphs to skills and application
  • Rebranding the message to shift from learning about letters to learning skills and applying principles
