    Topic: Code Names

    Description: Looking for a different way to engage your team? Team building virtually can be tough. So let’s observe how we can turn Code Names into a fun virtual experience (with hopes to get you involved and play for ourselves). Games can be fun, challenging and an excellent way to connect with your team. We make this even more impactful as we highlight how we “play” the game and connect it to how we can do our work even better by playing on a bigger team. We may not think we have time for games, but when we can better understand each other, we communicate better and do better work. This can also make us more appreciative of those we work with and more resilient as a team in preparation for our next challenge!

    Looking to explore new leadership development possibilities? Share best practices? Develop meaningful relationships with other leadership development practitioners also working on their craft? Building on the great conversations from the first 2016 series, join us for the follow-up series of the ATD Central Iowa Leadership Development Special Interest Group from 8:30 am -10:30 am. 10:00-10:30 will be time to connect with other participants and 8:30-10:00 we will have inspiring conversation. Our goal is to create the space for people to connect, explore and to transform. It will be up to all of us to make this group what we need it to be.

    Topic: Resilience

    Description: Boy, we thought it was hard to go into lockdown: Parents were suddenly home schooling. Kids, pets and spouses were our new co-workers. Homes were converted to offices and offices were closed. Work and home lives were affected in ways we never expected or had experienced before. And the list goes on.

    NOW we wonder when and how we will be able to navigate our way out of it! Frankly, we are wearing and tearing a bit.

    Our resilience runs lower!

    Our emotions run higher!

    It’s high time to look at our energy, because here's the thing:

    When we nurture our fire, we burn bright. If we don’t, we burn out.

    When we ground ourselves, we stay calm when the stuff hits the fan.

    When we let variety into our lives, it carries us forward like a fresh wind.

    So let’s find out together how to keep our fires burning: Join us

    - to explore your personal habits,

    - to share what works for you,

    - to let others inspire you, and

    - to support each other in creating rituals which nurture, ground and refresh us while dropping habits that drain us.

    Looking to explore new leadership development possibilities? Share best practices? Develop meaningful relationships with other leadership development practitioners also working on their craft? Building on the great conversations from the first 2016 series, join us for the follow-up series of the ATD Central Iowa Leadership Development Special Interest Group from 8:30 am -10:30 am. 10:00-10:30 will be time to connect with other participants and 8:30-10:00 we will have inspiring conversation.
