    ATD EPA is proud to participate in the ATD Regional Webinar Series. This collaboration of 6 ATD chapters (including Eastern PA, Greater Philadelphia, Mid NJ, Northern NJ, Long Island & New York City) is bringing together the best of our networks to provide world class presenters and content.  We look forward to sharing these webinars with you throughout 2021!

    Assessments are commonly used in L&D programs, from entry level training courses to high level leadership programs. The number of organizations that offer assessments has grown and the assessment options have grown with them. But which one do you use and when? 

    Participating in an assessment can lead to an insightful view of self-discovery and personal growth, yet the vast number of assessment options available today can also lead to some confusion. Confusion about which to use, how to handle debriefing the results and how to built a path forward using the assessment data. 

    Although assessments have been with us for some time now and used in development programs worldwide, their increased availability and targeted focus makes it ever more important to pick the right tool for the required need. This event will explore the role and value of using assessments in your programs, how to choose and use them, while discussing the relevance of assessment certifications.

    Welcome to the Pennsylvania Executive Education Series sponsored by your ATD chapter.  Every 2nd Wednesday of the month we'll be presenting a thought leader in executive education coming from our most prestigious academic institutions and organizations across the state. 

    These events are intended for organizational leaders who view talent managment, organizational development and training from the C-suite impact.  If you're a leader in your organization, network with like minded individuals and learn how others in similar roles are driving talent in their organizations.

    Session Description: 

    The Culture Puzzle: Harnessing the Forces That Drive Your Organization’s Success

    In a world where businesses change at a dizzying pace, what can leaders do to build flexible and adaptive workplaces that inspire people to achieve extraordinary results? The answer lies in recognizing and aligning the elusive forces— or the “puzzling” pieces —that shape your organization’s culture.

    With thirty years’ worth of research, teaching, and consulting experience, Mario Moussa brings a wealth of experience to creating nimble organizations. A globally recognized management expert, he will explain how to access the full power of your culture by harnessing the Four Forces that drive it.

    Vision: Embrace a common purpose that illuminates shared aspirations and plans.

    Interest: Foster a deep commitment to authentic relationships and the organization’s future.

    Habit: Establish routines and rituals reinforce "the way we do things around here.”

    Innovation: Promote the constant tinkering that produces surprising new solutions to old problems.

    “Think of the Four Forces as the water, soil, sunlight, and skill it takes to make a garden healthy and productive,” he writes in his new book, The Culture Puzzle. When leaders nourish their teams with support and encouragement, they are rewarded with a bountiful harvest. The most successful companies satisfy employees’ thirst to do meaningful work, gain respect, and be part of a vibrant community.

    Participants in this session will be introduced to the four-part Culture Evaluator. The results will guide them in building the kinds of companies that serve all stakeholders and thrive in a world of constant transformation.
