    This session teaches strategies to recognize and embrace human qualities in leadership. Highlights include the need to move away from the robotic, one-size-fits-all approach and focus on leading people by understanding their fallibility, and acknowledging the challenges of change. The presentation "unlocks human potential," by teaching a transformative perspective on leadership that will inspire leaders to adopt a more effective approach. By doing this, leaders are better equipped to engage, attract, and retain all generations of employees.

    Learning Objectives

    • Implement new strategies to make change and drive performance
    • Learn why change is so difficult and how to overcome it
    • Use a powerful yet simple process to increase engagement, teamwork and loyalty
    • Unlock empathetic leadership skills which drive accountability and encourages diversity and inclusion.

    Every organization wants to have high-performing teams. However, few leaders truly understand the impact that one good (or bad) manager can have on a team. Our research shows that behind almost every high-performing team, it’s the manager - no matter their background or expertise - who make all the difference by doing three common things.

    We invite you to join David Nelson, Master Trainer and Head of Product at Lead In 30 for an engaging and interactive ATD Chicago webinar on March 20 at Noon Central where he’ll discuss how managers can become what we call “the 3rd leader” through:

    • Clarity - Creating, Defining, and Reinforcing Key Results.
    • Alignment - Don’t Settle for Awareness, Create United Action.
    • Movement - Identify Perceptions that Inhibit Action.

    Come and learn how you and the managers in your organization can create teams that feel inspired, focused, and empowered.

    David Nelson is the Head of Product at LeadIn30. David brings over thirteen years of experience as a consultant, speaker, and facilitator, primarily focusing on leadership development and learning design. His passion is to transform complex ideas into accessible and engaging learning experiences for everyone. Along with facilitating courses for many of the Fortune 500, such as Google, Workday, Prudential, Costco, & Under Armour; David speaks to over 5,000 people annually. As a speaker, he has shared the stage with prominent thought leaders such as Dan Pink, Liz Wiseman, Greg McKeown, Charles Duhigg, and Dan Medina. His approachable style and insight make each event informative and inspiring.

    This program is for everyone who designs, facilitates, or manages online learning programs, including elearning, webinars, virtual classrooms, websites, computer-based job aids, social media, anything that involves technology - which a great deal of learning today does. I believe it’s critical to consider accessibility, disability, and usability in online learning, because without understanding the types of assistive technologies learners may use and how to design with inclusion in mind, you may end up unintentionally excluding your learners from your training program. So in this session, we’re going to learn how to create accessible online learning, and also learn how to evaluate our existing courses for accessibility. Participants will leave with templates and resources to get started on course accessibility right away!

    • Understand types of disabilities and assistive technology, as well as challenges experienced by disabled learners
    • Learn how to create accessible online learning (with practice activities!)
    • Learn how to evaluate accessibility of existing online learning
    • Bonus! How do I convince others to prioritize accessibility?

She holds several certifications such as Talent Development (CPTD), Human Resources (SHRM-SCP), Accessibility (CPACC), and Diversity & Inclusion, and speaks regularly on accessibility and disability inclusion in the workplace.
