    Let's share our thoughts on Michael Bungay Stanier's The Coaching Habit!

    Join the Madison-area L&D community to share perspectives and applications from the thought-provoking game-changer, The Coaching Habit.

    All are welcome to attend this free event! When MBS presented at our first virtual conference, he took us on a neuroscience journey through engagement. His book has some of those topics sprinkled in as he digs into some of the most effective (yet seemingly simple) questions and mindsets you can bring as a coach. Our hour together will be spent sharing take-aways, stories, and how these concepts might play out for you! 

    Jan Szmanda

    Jan is a facilitator for the State of Wisconsin who loves to build meaningful connections with the teams he works with. Some of his favorite topics include team effectiveness, coaching, EQ, resiliency, and many more. You might have seen him in the background of events or through emails as he is currently the VP of Technology for ATD-MAC. He is excited to build on some of the great conversations from the virtual conference!

    If you haven't gotten your hands on the book yet, check out MBS's website!

    The Post Pandemic Puzzle:
    What Will Training Look Like?

    As more and more people head back to the office, many of us are faced with the challenge of adopting a hybrid learning strategy. We need to juggle the needs of in person, virtual, and asynchronous learners. This is no easy task and every company will have a different approach.

     In this discussion-based session we will explore what we know right now and how others are adapting to the challenge of returning to the office with so much unknown. We will also look into the proverbial crystal ball to explore what might be coming next and how you can continue to adapt

    Mike Stefonik

    Mike recently surpassed ten years in the talent development and has spent that time in various roles ranging from facilitation to managing training and is currently an instructional designer with Sentry Insurance. With his experience he likes to think about the way people learn and apply his training. He is currently on the ATD-MAC board serving as the VP of Marketing and obtained the CPTD in January of 2020.

    With a complimentary SDI 2.0 assessment, this training aligns with the ATD competency model in a very unique way. It’s the only assessment that measures both personality and behavior, and it uniquely does so in the context of relationships. Our webinar gives a complete view of who you are at your core, shows you how to prevent conflict, provides visibility into the strengths you bring to your work, and provides real-time insight to adjust your approach with others for better results. 

    Here at Core Strengths, we call this Relationship Intelligence (RQ). We believe in it because we’ve seen how this insight improves collaboration at Fortune 100s, how healthcare teams use it to build trust, and how global tech firms rely on it to strengthen team productivity and engagement. But most of all, we’d like to partner with you on this webinar because, in times like these, we could all use more meaningful connections with each other.

    Michael Brown

    Michael is a Master Facilitator at Core Strengths who has spent over 10 years consulting, training, and implementing transformational leadership programs for senior-leaders at organizations such as P&G, Goodwill, Hershey, and more. He is an author, executive coach, and keynote speaker. His book, Fellowship: Servant Leaders Serving Leaders, helps managers quickly strengthen relationships with their team members to serve their growth and development. 

    Michael holds a B.A. and a Master of Arts in Strategic Communication and Leadership from Seton Hall University. In his free time, Michael makes divots in fairways, fly fishes, mountain bikes- all while coaching kids' world championship soccer teams (okay, they might not be world champions yet).
