What can I learn in 1-to-3 hours?
You'd be surprised. L&D offers many learning opportunities annually presented by up-to-date, well-versed consultant-trainers. We welcome employees, supervisors, and managers to constantly renew their skill sets.
I'm already an experienced manager. What can you teach me?
If you have management down cold, please consider attending and help others develop by sharing your experience and knowledge. Newer employees appreciate hearing from you and lessons-learned-the-hard-way.
Could I invite my employees to an L&D session as a team-building experience?
Yes, if you're a manager or supervisor, attending a L&D with your employees is an excellent opportunity to team-build. By attending a session with your employees, you're sending a clear message that you value life-long learning.
What sessions are offered?
We've redesigned the Working Smarter: 2012-2013 L&D Session Guide. Using your feedback, we added new features within the guide to create a roadmap to learning. The session guide is published as a PDF which means it's searchable. Plus, we've added links within the guide to give multiple ways to find and register for great learning experiences.
How do I use this guide?
We've added several new features to the session guide to make it easier to find the best learning experiences for you. You can find sessions within the Working Smarter: 2012-2013 L&D Session Guide:
I filled out an online survey about learning. Did anyone read it?
Yes! In fact, because of feedback from our customers, we've made many improvements.
How do I register for a session?
We've made it easy to register. Next to the session time we've added a "Register Now!" link. Clicking it takes you directly into the Minicourse Registration System (MRS) for that session. Just select the session that best fits your calendar, click the "Register" button, and you're done!
