    ATD SCC is delighted to present:

    Talent Management in a Turbulent World

    With the Distinguished, Award-Winning

    Rhodes Scholar:


    Roopa Unnikrishnan

    Head of Strategy, Harman International 

    At a time when a 280-character tweet can change your bottom line, and a natural disaster can have a disastrous impact on your supply chain, how is a talent planner supposed to plan? How does a talent professional create a sustainable and change ready organization that can thrive in the “Whitewater of World-Wide Turbulence?” 

    Roopa Unnikrishnan, Harman Strategy Executive and Author of The Career Catapult, will discuss the realities of translating strategy into operational plans. Roopa  will outline why workforce and operational planning must occur simultaneously to fully integrate both in the core business strategy.

    Roopa will explore these topics in the workshop:

      • Why the success of the business relies on the depth of strategic workforce planning
      • How to shift workforce planning from an independent annual process to an every-day behavior
      • How to follow and analyze trends to drive talent development 
      • How to foster cross-functional, higher-level strategic discussions to influence core decisions
      • How to use insights to drive skill development critical for organization success
      You will leave with a framework for how to create a consistent partnership with your strategy partner to make an integrated approach to business goals and talent planning.

      Coaching Community of Practice (CoP) Meeting

      Thursday, December 12th, 2019

      9:15AM - 11:00AM

      How Can You Succeed if You Don’t Know Who You Are?

      Coaching through the Lens of Identity: A Growth Adventure for Coaches and Clients

      Presented by:


      Larry Ackerman


      Location: Norwalk Public Library, 2nd floor

      1 Belden Avenue, Norwalk CT 06850

      PARKING: There is a small lot behind the building (first driveway on Mott, on right as you enter from corner of Belden and Mott.) There is also a parking garage across the street and around the corner, across from the Mall, behind the post office. 

         

      Our group's mission is to share best practices and explore trends and new approaches in the field of coaching within an organizational setting.

      This workshop is for coaches who want to understand how to tap into the value-creating power of personal identity as a lever for positive change and growth.

      Participants will learn how to:

      • Help clients connect what they do with who they are
      • Realize client outcomes that have greater staying power
      • Engender a greater sense of trust and commitment from clients
      • Utilize the identity discipline to help sharpen their professional brand

      As a coach, you help people make optimal choices in their professional and personal lives. Yet, what often lies at the core of a career, leadership or relationship challenge is an identity challenge – a lack of awareness regarding one’s unique, value-creating potential and how to bring it to life. This session will help you address this fundamental challenge in revealing and pragmatic ways.
