    Member's Guests and Non Members Welcomed

    ATD-LA’s Member Appreciation Day is your opportunity to network with colleagues and experts. Meet with the Board as they share news and information about the chapter. This event is limited to 50 participants.


    As the global leader in performance improvement, FranklinCovey has partnered with ATD-LA to bring members and non-members this session.

    Strong cultures are conscious creations

    Where are you coming from and where do you want to go? We provide the connection and help you to choose your own organizational culture. Based on the people, the processes and the unwritten rules of the organization. This is the way to develop a culture that is authentic and true. Without that conscious choice, all you can do is rely on what is “in” at any particular moment or the whim of the day. Culture is a constant, so ensure that you steer it consciously.

    Leaders are the key

    Behavioral change among employees requires the organization’s leaders to be consistent in leading by example. Only then can you break the cycle of old patterns and habits. That’s when you work on #winningculture

    Employees are only willing to bring their own behavior in line with the corporate ethics if they trust their leaders. So leaders must themselves display the desired behavior, they need to deliberately encourage it among their employees and be consistent in correcting undesired behavior. They need to grasp and accept their choices with all the consequences. Only then will they gain the confidence that the corporate ambition is authentic and genuine.

    The session will feature the impacts that culture has on businesses.
