    Change is everywhere and constant. It’s not going away anytime soon, so we’d better get good at dealing with it.

    Change Management is often reduced to a method or process, but it’s more than that. It’s about people. Join us for an interactive session to explore how to think about change, how people really experience it, and how you can immediately apply practical change tools, resources and principles.

    This program has been designed especially for you by two seasoned OD consultants with deep experience in transformational and evolutional change efforts in pharmaceutical, biotech, healthcare services and technology industries.

    Come learn tried and true concepts, insights, and tools, and gain a new perspective on change management. Learn from local experts Christine Young and Julia Urbanchak along side your local L&D colleagues. And enjoy the scenic beauty of Temple University's Ambler campus as well. Breakfast & coffee provided. Registration and information here on our site!

    Thanks to Joe Urbanski for a thought-provoking, paradigm shifting, and above all - engaging workshop today as part of our Summer of Learnin 2018. Thanks to Drexel's Goodwin College of Professional Studies for hosting us and for ATD Philadelphia for the partnership in putting the event on. A quick highlight of Joe's main takeaways:

    1. Culture is important. CULT ture that is. (Or as they say in the military & business - culture eats strategy for breakfast)

    2. There of lots of ways to make "mandatory training" feel engaging and useful. 

    3. A lot of "non-mandatory training" - well, feels like it's mandatory.

    4. You can give your participants a choice - to be engaged or to be a prisoner. But that choice is yours to make first.

    5. If you want to make people want to take training you need to learn what motivates each one of them.

    6. We learn through discovery. We remember through reinforcement and repetition. 

    7. Content? No, CONTEXT is king in training.

    8. Training & Facilitating don't mean the same thing.

    Thanks also to everyone that came out and had a blast alongside us and Joe.

    Our June monthly workshop will take place on Saturday June 9th from 9am to 12pm at Drexel University's main campus. Join L&D Philly and the Philly chapter of ATD for the most dynamic and engaging workshop you will see all year! Details and registration at ldphilly.com

    Make Training a Want to (Not a Have to)

    We don’t teach content; we teach people. That’s why it’s time to start focusing on context. People are drowning in all of the free content that is available since the Internet arrived in 1995. It’s time for an update: Make Training A Want To (Not A Have To) gives you the insight and tools to reverse engineer the ultimate training in order to facilitate learning experiences that create measurable results with your people and compelling reasons to apply the learning. This changes everything.

    Today’s training has to be energizing, interactive, fun, and full of valuable content, too! But too many trainers still stand behind a podium—a 20th century practice. It’s time for an update: this experience gives you the insight and tools to help design trainings that create lasting impact with your learners. Content is the loser here; because it’s NOT about “what” people learn. This is about becoming a context expert. Discover training practices that go against standard practice.


    Learn from locally based, but nationally recognized training leader Joe Urbanski about how to think differently when it comes to the training we provide learners.
