A Note from Rob: Planning for 2022

Hello ATD WV Members, and Guests;

On January 8th, the Board of Directors met to discuss our vision for 2022 and beyond. I was very proud of how well the Board very quickly took ideas and concepts and molded them into actionable goals and plans to grow our chapter and prepare us for a great year ahead, and to give us an amazing footing for the future. 

Our 2022 Operating Plan is now available for all our members and is available under the "Our Chapter" section of our chapter website. I encourage all members to check out what we have planned for this year. 

Additionally, we've enhanced our chapter website in several other targeted areas, if you haven't clicked around the site, I'd encourage you to do so. We have new sections for our Chapter By Laws, as well as position descriptions and term information for all our Board members. If you wanted to know what is involved in serving your chapter, this information is for you.

We'll be making additional improvements over the year, and doing much more to engage our membership and grow our chapter. All of us on the Board are excited for the year ahead, and I look forward to seeing you at one of our events in the near future. Here's to a great 2022!

All my best;

Rob Hoitt
President, ATD West Virginia

    Productive Relationships Predict High-Performance

    Learn How to Build Agile Teams Where Relationships Thrive
    Doesn’t it seem like some managers and teams make “it” happen, no matter what “it” is? Even in uncertainty or times of crisis, they find a way to turn opposition into opportunity. They transform the stumbling blocks of conflict and misunderstanding into stepping stones for success. For these high-achievers, building collaborative relationships is priority one. Whether in-person or dispersed, they understand that members of their teams can go further together than they can alone. The good news is that you, too, can leverage the power of relationships and drive results.

    What You Will Learn During the Webinar:
    ■ How to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of individual motives and strengths
    ■ The ability to tailor communication-based on individual motives and preferences
    ■ Understand diverse personalities and how that can trigger conflict
    ■ Discover your strengths and deploy them at the right time for the right reason for greater effectiveness

    Due to the personalized nature of this webinar, participants will be sent a brief pre-work assignment upon registration which will allow them to take the Strength Deployment Inventory 2.0
