You may have noticed a lack of new content lately. That's because I've invested my time in some different avenues over the past few months. It's my hope that these efforts will bring lasting value to the Talent Development community. To that point, I'm very excited to share that I've written an issue of ATD at Work titled "Execute a Hackathon to Solve L&D Challenges".
In this guide I share the lessons I’ve learned from leading and implementing a Talent Development hackathon. This information can mean the difference between an event with poor outcomes and one that allows an organization to break through silos and achieve its goals.
Writing this guide has opened doors for my career. It has lead to speaking events and allowed me to connect with people throughout the Talent Development community. My hope is that through this guide, you will run an event that inspires your organization to create lasting change. That it will open doors for your career and help you achieve your goals.
Here's an excerpt!
Thank you to my amazing family, friends, and the editing team at the Association for Talent Development for helping to make this happen.
I'm working on a post to help learning teams manage their project intake process. Its focus is to help you prioritize your work and ensure that it's aligned with the strategic goals of your organization. Look for it here in the next few weeks.
Additionally, I have joined the advisory board for Seton Hall University's Customer Experience Certificate Program. As an advisory board member I'm dedicating time over the next couple of months to review the program and provide feedback. I'm very excited to complete the certification and apply CX methodologies to my work and share them with you.
Lastly, I'm starting a podcast! Rory Sacks and I have a few episodes recorded and are in the process of editing and finalizing our first few episodes. Stay tuned for the official launch!
