Dallas ATD Learning & Development EDU Special Interest Group

Hosted by: Amanda Preston, Lisa Bevington, and Julie Mitchell 

Monday, January 8, 2017 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Presenter: Robert Bee

How do most L&D professionals improve?

Adjust practices through feedback!

What if we receive feedback but do nothing with it?

You may have a blind spot, and should you continue, you risk losing credibility and learners will disengage!

Blind spots develop when others know something about you that you don’t even know about yourself. What’s worse, is blind spots can be the demise of a L&D professional! Blind spots can include verbal cues, mannerisms, or even the way you say things, to name a few. By not addressing your blind spots you’ll inevitably inhibit growth in yourself, and potentially degrade the learning process for your learners. Acknowledging your blind spots will increase your self-awareness which means you will be more influential during the learning process for the staff in your organization.

In this session, you will be introduced to:

  • The Johari Window and how effective feedback can assist with identifying your blind spots.
  • Strategies to reduce or eliminate your blind spots, so you can provide your learners the best learning opportunities.
  • How to assist others on their journey towards self-awareness and reducing or eliminating their own blind spots.
