    Meet Mary Hoftiezer, Volunteer for 2023 President-Elect

    Mary, what kind of talent development work do you do?

    I completed my master’s degree in Learning Design Technology at CU Denver last spring and have since transitioned to contract work through Evolution Learning Design Group, LLC.  I work to create engaging, people-centered learning that helps businesses meet their learning needs.

     

    How have you benefited from being an ATD Rocky Mountain Chapter member? And what motivated you to volunteer for the President-Elect role for next year?

    I started my Instructional Design journey in 2019, while I was still working in public education.  Being a lifelong learner, I explored opportunities to utilize my educational background and teaching skillset in another, related field.  I came across Rocky Mountain ATD chapter in the process.  I knew that getting involved with a professional organization would be a way to learn more about the industry and network with other professionals.  I have learned, connected, and grown professionally and personally through the chapter.

    I am volunteering as President-Elect in 2023 to give back to the chapter that has helped me.  I also believe that this is an opportunity to continue to promote the many benefits of ATD and to work with a fantastic team of board members and members.  I also strive to continue to provide value to our members. 

     

    Are you willing to share a fun fact about yourself?

    I am a Colorado native.  I am also an avid endurance athlete and have completed hundreds of triathlons.  When I am not engaged in helping the world work better, I enjoy swimming, biking, running, and being outdoors.

    It's not too late: Register for the November 2 program today!

    Most if not all of the employees we serve as talent professionals are currently going through transformations driven by a variety of forces:

    • pandemic pivots
    • the launching of disruptive technologies 
    • hybrid work environments

    Based on these facts, if you visit the ATD website and do a fast search on upskill and reskill, you’ll find multiple resources for talent professionals around how to do just that… for others.

    Insert a bit of irony here, as it tends to be true that even as many are navigating the latest evolution of the various skills needed for the future for the clients and employees we serve, there are glaring questions many may be forgetting to ask:

    • What about us?
    • What should we be focusing on to develop ourselves?
    • What trends might I want to consider for an ever-evolving future?

    The reality: it is as critical that you focus on your own capacity to upskill and right skill in order to be able to meet future demands of doing the same in service to others. To provides some high-level guidance and to begin to grow our understanding of just what this will entail, we’ve put together a panel of talent professionals to explore this topic. The discussion will highlight:

    • emerging trends in adult education, organizational culture and HR management
    • thoughtful consideration of future possibility
    • tactical ideas for actions to consider for your own journey

    Our blended panel will offer perspectives for corporate talent professionals, talent management consultants, and HR professionals working with talent processes.

    Unique Opportunity: Participate in a "Workshop in a Box" Pilot on September 28.

    Hummingly is partnering with the ATD Rocky Mountain Chapter to pilot a new "workshop in a box" product they've developed. When it goes to market, an organization could purchase this kit and easily facilitate it themselves for their team, just using what's in the box. No need for a "certified" or thoroughly prepared facilitator to get the intended benefit.

    Why participate in this pilot? For starters, participants will see how this workshop is designed to be easily facilitated and scaled. Additionally, participants will learn the workshop content as a participant -- optimizing team cohesion and wellbeing. Of course, you'll also provide some feedback to Hummingly about the workshop. Everyone benefits from the experience!

    Did we mention that this is a FREE event for participants? This unique opportunity is brought to you by the chapter's Instructional Design Special Interest Group; however, everyone is welcome (even if you've never participated in the group's events in the past). We'll even provide pastries, snacks, and coffee.

    Click here to register, learn more, and view the "workshop in a box" agenda.

    Meet Kara Sand, September Program Speaker on the Power of Purpose.

    Kara, how did you become focused on purpose-driven leadership and team development?

    I believe that we each have a purpose(s) in life. I was fortunate to have mentors early on in my career that encouraged and inspired me to explore my identity. My journey to understanding my values and vision ignited a passion to help others. My job allows me to guide leaders and teams so they too can uncover their life purpose and align it with their career goals. No matter what you do or where you are in life, you can live out your purpose in each moment.

    Are there misconceptions about purpose that you frequently encounter?

    Many people believe that you only have one purpose in life. Depending on the person, that may or may not be true. You may find that you uncover your purpose and then it evolves as you change and grow through life. And that is perfectly fine! There are no hard rules when it comes to your purpose!

    Are you willing to share a fun fact about yourself?

    I love to meditate! I find that when I am grounded, calm, and connected, I can more gracefully navigate life – and enjoy it. Meditation has benefited me so much that I want to share it with the world! I created a YouTube channel, Serenity Meditation with Kara, where you’ll see short guided visualization videos.

     

    Register here to join us for this interactive session led by Kara Sand on September 7.

    Meet Elizabeth Bayee, now the Director of Certifications for the ATD Rocky Mountain Chapter.

    Elizabeth, we're excited to have you on board as the Director of Certifications! What interested you in this role?

    I participated in the study group in the Summer / Fall of 2018. I enjoyed learning the capability model from my peers in the cohort, as well as the many guest speakers who had specialized in a specific area of the model. I kept my account active and have been a “ghost” observer of the activities and cohorts since, with a sincere desire to jump in some time. Fortunately, my work schedule has changed and given me greater freedom with my time and I was excited to see the opportunity to give back. Participating in the Summer/Fall 2018 cohort was exactly what I needed to keep my study of the capability model on track, and truly prepare me for the exam. I am excited to give back to others who want to take that next step and desire to learn through the community to achieve their goal of passing the CPTD exam.

     

    Do you have any specific plans/ideas you're eager to start working on?

    Yvonne and others have pioneered the CPTD study group. The ATD Rocky Mountain Chapter was one of the first to put forth the cohort idea and saw the eagerness and interest in the ATD community. It has grown and become recognized as an investment that is worth making. I am standing on the shoulders of all of those who have gone before to bring this opportunity to a national platform. I look forward to continuing the efforts and since I will be a new set of eyes, looking for opportunities to refine and grow what is already in place.

     

    Tell us a bit about your journey earning your CPTD. 

    I saw the opportunity to expand my learning from where I was in the capability model, successfully using the competencies in the “Developing Professional Capability” section of the model. I desired to expand beyond that niche. When I looked into the CPTD, I saw that the two other areas, “Building Personal Capability” and "Impacting Organizational Capability” aligned with the goals I had within my role at the company I was working for at the time. I put together a short proposal, and I was fortunate that my manager also saw the potential opportunity of expanding my skill set and seeing where it would impact the organization in a direction they were also hoping to strategically expand. 

     

    Are you willing to share a fun fact about yourself?

    It rarely comes up that I get to tell this story…My husband and I spent two years doing yoga at the park with professional wrestlers. I was traveling for work and met Dimond Dallas Page (DDP). (I might be dating myself here, lol. This was in the WCW and WWF era). He shared with me that he was trying to find yoga techniques that could help fellow wrestlers, as well as the average person. As he was learning more about yoga and what would work, we would go through sessions every Saturday in the park. DDP has been at our house for holiday events and sends me a birthday greeting every year.

    Meet Dr. Britt Andreatta

    Featured speaker from the ATD 2022 conference, and speaker for our chapter program on August 3, Wired to Resist.

    Britt, what attracted you to brain science?

    Even in high school, I’ve always been someone who likes to help others be better. Honestly, neuroscience was introduced to me in therapy –learning about the amygdala hijack started my ongoing curiosity. I started learning about the neuroscience of learning to better my own craft. And then I knew I had to share what I was learning.

    My first book was on the brain science of learning, Wired to Grow: Harness the Power of Brain Science to Learn and Master Any Skill, which has become a go-to source in the learning industry. 

     

    How can leaders better introduce change?

    I go into depth on this in my book Wired to Resist. What I learned about studying the neuroscience of change is that we're biologically wired to look for all the things that could go wrong and what we could lose.

    The basal ganglia takes repeated behaviors and turns them into habits, which is really a well-grooved neural pathway. But it takes, on average, 40 to 50 repetitions to get there.

    Change can go much more smoothly and effectively when leaders understand some of these biological components. They can design it better, they can announce it better, and then they can support people in moving through it more quickly. Because, ultimately, we are a resilient species, but we need a little support to be our best and be most adaptive.

     

    Are you willing to share a fun fact about yourself?

    I love fly fishing. It's the most Zen-like thing I do. Every summer I commit to two or three weeks in Montana and you’ll find me on the best blue rivers -- they’re called Blue Ribbon Waters. I’ll start in the morning and six, seven hours go by and I won’t notice the time transpired. It’s just so beautiful. And I do catch and release, so in my heart I go back and I catch the same fish several times in a row.

     

    Our August 3 program, Wired to Resist featuring Dr. Britt Andreatta, is shaping up to be the chapter's BIGGEST program of the year! Don't miss out -- you can learn more and register here.
