    Shifting Mindset with Dennis Stauffer
    Friday, January 19, 2018 ~ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
    Radisson Hotel Roseville ~ 2540 North Cleveland Ave., Roseville, MN

    Shifting Mindset

    The powerful yet underused strategy to promote positive change,

    drive innovation and just get along

     Change is hard, and the barriers to success are subtle and often hidden. Yet some individuals and organizations do it routinely, while others struggle. Trainers and talent managers have a role to play in the complex dynamics of change, as expert guides. Guides who shape not only skills and behaviors, but mindset—the complex web of assumptions and beliefs that influence our decisions.

    In this interactive session, you will explore a rigorous research-based approach to mindset. One that provides a strategy for facilitating innovation and change, and a lens for evaluating the impact of training and development more broadly.

    You will learn:

    • To use mindset to gauge how change ready your organization and people really are.
    • Ways to shift mindset to optimize innovation and dramatically increase value creation.
    • How mindset fosters conflict and how to use mindset to diffuse it.
    • Why an understanding of mindset is essential to highly effective leadership.

    Come prepared to rethink how you think. Y

    ou will leave with a powerful new set of tools.


    Presenter: Dennis Stauffer

                                 12 Steps to Building a Successful                                Talent & Development Business

    Friday, February 16 ~ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

    Radisson Hotel Roseville ~ 2540 North Cleveland Ave., Roseville, MN

    This presentation will be based on the presenter’s ATD March 2017 published book, The Complete Guide to Building and Growing a Talent Development Firm. Dr. Cohen will first give a high-level overview of all 12 steps needed to establish a sustainably profitable TD business, but then only focus on the 4 or 5 in which the audience is most interested. The 12 steps fall into three overall pillars: first Getting Grounded (1. Understand the Industry Dynamics, 2. Figure Out What You Want and Need, 3. Define Your Purpose, 4. Create a Business Plan and Structure, 5. Put Together a Strategic Plan, 6. Develop Your Offer); then Creating Momentum (7. Establish Your Operating System, 8. Market and Sell Your Offer, 9. Serve Your Customers); and finally Looking Ahead (10. Recognize Future Trends, 11. Establish Your Growth Plan, 12. Exit the Business).

    At the end of the session, attendees will not only be able to list the 12 steps, but also have gained insight into how to:

    • Determine the business they want
    • Set up their business for success
    • Create a compelling offer
    • Operate their business effectively
    • Grow their business profitably
    • Move forward with their next steps

    As requested, the application of these steps to running an effective internal corporate development department will also be discussed. Ample time will be provided for questions and interactive dialogue. Attendees should think ahead of the session which steps they would most like to spend the most time discussing.

    Presenter Steve Cohen is the Founder of Strategic Leadership Collaborative.
