The Certified Professional in Learning & Performance (CPLP) is the premier qualification of the Talent Development field. Awarded by the Association for Talent Development (ATD) Certification Institute, only 500 currently hold a CPLP demonstrating their high competency in the TD profession.
In this networking event, a panel of CPLPs will discuss their experience obtaining and maintaining a CPLP and how it has contributed to their professional and organizational life. Among the questions they will address are:
Bring your questions about the CPLP to add to the discussion.
In addition, ATDChi will be kicking off a CPLP initative with the support of our Gold Sponsor, CARA, to support our members who have decided to add CPLP to their credentials. Join us to learn how ATDChi continues to Advance, Build, Connect and Engage the Chicagoland TD profession and how you can participate.

In this day-long interactive workshop, stories and analogies will illuminate how the adult brain learns without getting mired in unnecessary details of brain architecture. By understanding why and under what conditions the brain shies away from learning and resists new behaviors, you will discover new approaches for learning and growth. You will also explore ways to stimulate adults’ brains to be curious, to seek new learning and new ways of doing things. This workshop emphasizes brain-aware approaches that incorporate research on the embodied, analogical brain. Through a variety of activities, you will share and build on your current best practices, and you will explore new and expanded approaches to add to your repertoires for fostering optimal learning.
The following learning objectives determine the outcomes of this workshop:
Workshop leaders’ latest book Facilitating Learning with the Adult Brain in Mind: A Conceptual and Practical Guide (Jossey-Bass, 2016) will be distributed during the workshop at no additional cost.
