    Government workers - FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL and CONTRACTORS - provide critical services and products for all citizens and guests using their in-depth knowledge, expertise, and (in many cases limited) resources. During these difficult political times, the DC Metro Chapter of ATD wants to discuss and share emotional coping strategies and resources for everyone who may be feeling anxiety and frustration at this time in this history due to difficult political times. In this discussion we will explore what emotional intelligence is, how it shows up, and how to balance the 5 composites and 15 elements to cope in the with the current political situation.

    Adelle J. Dantzler is a certified EQ-i2.0 facilitator/coach. She has taught and coached hundreds of federal employees and others on how to balance the emotional intelligence composites and elements to succeed in their work. Adelle has also worked as a federal government employee, consultant, and contractor for 11 agencies over the period of 30 years and appreciates the dedication, achievements, and challenges that government workers experience.

In order for us to feel fulfilled in our work, we need to be clear about what is important to us, drives our passions, and provides meaning to our lives. This session will help you develop clarity and understanding on what is important, determine how best to make impactful career decisions and develop strategies to make sure you are making career decisions and choices that are in alignment with your values. You will leave with webinar with the ability to develop your own Values Board to display the stories that depict their values. The Values Board is a tangible reminder to reinforce and maintain focus on your values.

Through an interactive tour of current brain science, you’ll learn what makes people tick and how you can best engage people based on that insight. You’ll walk away with:

    • A model of what makes people tick, based on current neuroscience and cognitive psychology
    • Best practices in training development, based on recent neuroscience research
    • Universal practices that can help you improve both your work and personal life

    Venue: C2 Technologies, Training Center, 1919 Gallows Rd., Vienna, VA 22182 

    If you’ve been to C2 before, we’re actually in the other building— 1919, which is perpendicular to 1921. We’ll be in a training center on the ground floor. Although the address is Gallows Rd., the entrance to the building is on Boone Blvd. If you've just turned off of Rt. 7 onto Gallows Rd, with Olive Garden on your right, take the next left onto Boone Blvd., then turn right into the first driveway. 1919 is the building to the left. Parking is over to the right, and it is free. After you enter the building, go to the left to find the training center. We’ll have signs to guide you. If you have any trouble getting in, call or text Claudia at 703.217.3517. Closest Metro Stop: Tysons Corner (Silver Line): You can walk through Tysons Corner mall to Route 7, cross the street, and walk to 1919 Gallows Rd (which is actually on Boone Blvd). Probably about a half-mile walk. In addition, there’s a shuttle bus that leaves the McLean Metro at approximately 5:30 and 6:00 p.m. and arrives at Tysons International Plaza (1919 Gallows Rd) about 20 minutes later. We can coordinate rides back to the Metro after the meeting.

    Emotional intelligence or EI is the ability to understand and manage your own emotions, and those of the people around you. People with a high degree of emotional intelligence know what they're feeling, what their emotions mean, and how these emotions can affect other people.

    For leaders, having emotional intelligence is essential for success. After all, who is more likely to succeed – a leader who shouts at his team when he's under stress, or a leader who stays in control, and calmly assesses the situation?

    Increasingly, coaching professionals are using EI assessments to help their clients gain insight into the following EI elements:

    1. Self-awareness.

    2. Self-regulation.

    3. Motivation.

    4. Empathy.

    5. Social skills.

    During this interactive session, participants will take a quick EI assessment, learn their EI strengths and development areas and practice coaching each other.

    Have you been receiving requests to design diversity and inclusion trainings? Diversity and inclusion has different meanings for different people, which makes this request all the more challenging. Consider that as instructional designers we hold a dual role when receiving these types of requests. On the one hand, we have the obvious request: design an implicit bias training or maybe cultural competency training? Perhaps the topic is emotional intelligence? On the other hand, we know these trainings alone cannot move the needle—we also need to ensure our training content and delivery is inclusive and that these diversity and inclusion learning objectives align against strategic objectives and include a change management strategy.

    To tackle this challenge, come explore this topic with expert panelists: Marlo Thomas Watson, Marcella Peralta Simon, and Julia Morelli. The panel discussion will be facilitated by the co-director of the instructional design CoP Natasha Roberts, CPLP.

    Come ready with your questions!

    Developing leadership competencies can only get us so far in improving leadership. Adult stage development theory provides insight into how we can transform leadership by expanding leaders’ capacity for engaging in more complex and diverse perspectives. Research at Washington University and Harvard University proves that there are stages of development that adults can achieve, much like the developmental stages for children. As people progress through the developmental stages, they perform more effectively in complex environments. Research has shown that organizations that are looking for transformation typically succeed when their key leaders have attained later stages of adult development. This is one good reason for anyone working within organizations to be tuned to what is possible at each stage. Now that this approach is hitting the mainstream, it’s a perfect opportunity for our community to learn the possibilities of adult stage development for ourselves and those we serve. In this interactive and reflective session, you will walk away with:

    • Clear understanding of the differences between horizontal and vertical development and how to apply both in developing leaders
    • A summary of the key stages of adult development and what is possible at each stage
    • Techniques you can use for the vertical development of yourself and the leaders in your organization
