    More about the session:

    As organizations prepared for their upcoming year, no one planned for the speed and severity at which radical change would come and alter our focus to the immediate need. Management faced disruption to businesses and lives in general. Faced with this new reality, and the global change that is occurring, management continues to be faced with disruption and uncertainty that requires flexibility and the ability to pick up the pieces of what remains and attempt to fit them back together. The question facing all organizations today is if their management teams are prepared to support their teams in a way that supports their new organizations?

    This webcast will discuss the changes in management’s role and how to succeed in today’s ever-changing environment:

    • Building and enhancing trust
    • Culture through a time of change
    • Why emotional intelligence is more critical than ever
    • Management’s responsibility in driving strategic engagement
    • Access a self-assessment to determine the gap between yesterday’s skills and today’s

    Who Should Attend:

    Talent Development professionals and business unit leaders faced with driving the outcomes of their organization while managing their teams in the chaos of today and strengthening them for the future.

    About the ATD Forte Executive Webinar Series:

    Although we've had to postpone the ATD Forte conference, we continue to work hard to create value for our talent development community. We’ve reached out to our conference presenters to see if they'd be willing to share their experience and expertise via webinar; the response was overwhelming!  

    On select Fridays from at 12:00pm, an executive from some of the largest organizations in the world will present relevant content with practical takeaways all talent development professionals can utilize.  

    We hope you’ll join us. If you miss a session, we will be posting them to our ATD Forte YouTube channel. Be sure to subscribe so you can easily keep track of the videos we post.

    Better eLearning with Chatbots 

    Chatbots are apps built to interact with users as an autonomous messenger app i.e. Facebook messenger. As most people would assume, a chatbot is something only app developers can do. Luckily, that’s not the case today and anyone that can browse the Internet, can easily setup a chatbot with the use of several available authoring apps. Now imagine, what if you could gather information from your SMEs through a chatbot or what if you could enhance your eLearning content with a chatbot? These are questions that hold the promise of highly engaging learning experiences. In this session, we’ll discuss two powerful apps that required no knowledge of programming languages and won’t break your budget.

    By the end of this session you will be able to:

    • Explain how chatbot technology works
    • Identify two apps for easy chatbot development
    • Explain the various uses and integrations of chatbots for L&D purposes

    Online learning does not need to be considered less impactful than traditional, face-to-face learning. The best online experiences are those that are motivating, flexible, realistic, supportive, collaborative, and replicate in-person activity. 

    Individuals working in online environments often feel disconnected from the community, and adult learners desire connection and community a great deal.

    As interactive and real-time experiences continue to evolve online, instructors and trainers are able to create environments that allow students to be both self-directed and group-oriented.

    In this talk, hear and see what adult online learners have to say about many of the common tools instructors and designers use to engage them in community-building and engaging experiences, as well as how to develop communities of practice in online environments.
