Returning as last year’s Newcomer of the Year, we didn’t know what to expect at this year’s Association for Talent Development International Conference and Expo in Atlanta, GA. We were committed to better focus, clearer branding, better materials, and even more emphasis on building high-quality relationships with our clients.
We were overwhelmed by the response!
Here’s what we experienced;
Companies all over the world want to build cultures of Compassionate Accountability.
They are yearning for a way to harness the positive potential in conflict.
They want more than theory and superficial prescriptions.
They want real strategies, real tools, and real behavior change.
Visitors to our booth got to try out our assessments, get live debriefing, and look through our training curriculum and support materials.
Using our experiential floor model, we demonstrated concepts “in action” and walked people through how to use compassionate accountability strategies to address their most pressing conflict communication challenges.
There was no down-time at our booth – we were busy continuously, keeping our team of eight on their feet! Part of it was that people wanted to go deep, spend some time, and really get to know our models and systems. Part of it, we guessed, was the intuitive appeal and attraction of conflict without casualties.
Nate’s workshop, Conflict Without Casualties, was full and the response was tremendous.
If you were at ATD and visited our booth or are part of our Next Element extended family, THANK YOU for your support and passion. If you didn’t make it and want to join the movement to transform negative drama into compassionate accountability, we’d love to hear from you.
See you next year in SanDiego!
