There you will be able to join the following groups (and many others) to Connect, Share, and Collaborate with others sharing your specific interests.

 

Creativity and Innovation SIG

Creativity has been declared the new core competency of business. Creativity's product, innovation, is the only sustainable competitive advantage left to organizations in the emerging Creative Knowledge Economy. In this exciting but demanding new era, most workers' success will depend on increasing and harnessing their creative thinking power, and then turning good ideas into practical innovations. One of the trainer's most important new roles will be to help people become more creative and increase the organization's capabilities to innovate. Our Creativity & Innovation Special Interest Group (C&I SIG) is a unique resource to help you gear up to meet the future. Periodic learning modules on a wide variety of creativity- and innovation-related topics are delivered to your computer desktop periodically. Plus you have the opportunity to interact electronically with other SIG participants to accelerate your learning by sharing insights and experiences. Any current ASTD-Puget Sound member can join the C&I SIG at no cost. All that is required is a willingness to learn and participate. To register, send a request to william.wurtz@coachingforcreativity.com.

Trainer's SIG

Senior Training Practitioner SIG

ASTD Puget Sound has received many requests from our more senior practitioners to provide a forum for those with extensive experience to tackle more complex issues that require a greater depth of experience in order to give and receive value. This is our first ASTD-PS event/offering with restricted attendance. This SIG is open to those with at least 10 years of experience as a Training Practitioner, and/or at least five years of experience as a Training Manager or Director. Participants will determine the topics and learning events, expected to include discussing challenges, sharing successes, exchanging ideas and resources, and making referrals and recommendations for training products/services. The Senior Practitioner SIG met for the first time at F5 Networks on May 8 and had a lively discussion around "What Do You Need" and What Can You Give," and again on June 26, when we experienced a Team Coaching session in support of our own learning group. Requirement: Those with at least 10 years of experience as a Training Practitioner, and/or at least five years of experience as a Training Manager or Director
