    Orlando Campus


     

    Dr. Bobby Hoffman, Associate Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Central Florida (UCF) and author of over 50 publications and four books, will be joining us to discuss human motivation. His presentation will highlight how the beliefs we have about ourselves can be used to implement science-based strategies that cultivate work engagement and peak performance.

    Hoffman brings a unique perspective to ATD members because before earning his PhD and becoming a prominent motivation researcher, he spent 22 years in training and organizational development working for the world’s most successful companies including GE, KPMG, NBC, and the National Basketball Association (NBA).



    During the presentation Hoffman will discuss performance improvement strategies based on the latest research from psychology, education, business, athletics, and neuroscience that he simplifies in his latest book “Hack Your Motivation,” which will be given free to all attendees as part of the regular meeting admission fee.

    Session participants will learn:

    • How to debunk the 7 most common motivational myths
    • The 3 motivational influences that must be embraced to enhance workplace learning
    • The top 5 self-beliefs that impede or accelerate work performance
    • The most important clues that reveal if a person is self-sabotaging
    • The psychology behind procrastination, learned helplessness, and the “freeloader” effect
    • How to distinguish motivational issues from knowledge and experience deficits
    • Implementation strategies to overcome the frustration leaders have engaging staff.

    The overall goal of the presentation is to assist participants in the identification, analysis, and mediation of motivational challenges related to optimal performance and achievement motivation.

    *Light refreshments and snacks will be provided.


    Attendees receive a copy of Dr. Hoffman’s new book “Hack Your Motivation: Over 50 Science-based Strategies to Improve Performance” use a conversational style, humor, and stories from his own life and those people he has met along the way to transform scientific findings into easy-to- understand and quick-to-use strategies (Hacks) that can be implemented to enhance personal and professional development.


     Dr. Hoffman is different from the hundreds of other “self-appointed” motivational gurus. Beside his Ph.D. from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, he worked in performance improvement and leadership development for 20 years before becoming a professor who specializes in motivation research. For the last two years he was the person that reviewed, approved, and scheduled all the research presentations on motivation for the largest gathering of motivational researchers in the world! Plus, he published a textbook on motivation that was a #1 category seller on Amazon.com in 2015. In addition, he is on the editorial board of five scientific journals and is a regular contributor to Psychology Today.

    Are you excited about training games and activities but anxious about losing control, wasting time, and being attacked by participants?




    Based on 20 years of field experience and research, Thiagi shares with you three important secrets of effective training facilitation:

    Flexible Facilitation. Identify seven critical dimensions of activities-based training (including pace, intensity, competition, and playfulness). Learn how to select, maintain, and balance appropriate levels of these dimensions.

    Handling Disruptive Participants. Recognize participants from hell and their disruptive behavior patterns. Learn strategies for discouraging such patterns and specific tactics for handling each pattern.

    Debriefing. Identify the importance of the debriefing process for linking the training game or activity to the workplace reality. Learn a powerful six-phase model for maximizing learning from experience. 

    *Light refreshments and snacks will be provided.



    Dr. Sivasailam “Thiagi” Thiagarajan is the founder and Resident Mad Scientist at The Thiagi Group, an organization with the mission of helping people improve their performance effectively and enjoyably.

    Thiagi served as the editor of ISPI's Performance & Instruction for more than 10 years. He has written a monthly GameLetter for 15 years; it currently appears as the GameBlog on this website.

    Thiagi has twice been elected the president of the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI), 27 years apart (in 1979 and 2006). He has also been the five-time president of the North American Simulation and Gaming Association (NASAGA).

    As a global nomad, Thiagi has lived in three different countries and has conducted training workshops in 21 others. Earlier in his life, he has been a high-school science teacher, street corner magician, researcher, editor of a professional journal, keynote speaker, college professor, USAID project director, and writer.

    Participate in this workshop and learn about a unique instructional design approach developed and field tested by Thiagi. Learn to use eclectic principles from extreme programming, agile software development, improv theater, creative engineering, and self-organizing complex systems. Stop using your grandfather’s ADDIE model and jump the curve to Thiagi’s continuous, concurrent, creative, co-design approach. Find the wisdom in such provocative ideas as letting the inmates run the asylum and building airplanes while flying them.


    Workshop Content:

    Module1. An Experiential Introduction to RRID. Deconstruct a training activity and use the template to immediately design your own activities.

    Module 2. Training as Performance Improvement. Select suitable performance improvement interventions to speed up and support training activities.

    Module 3. Step by Step? Combine, omit, modify, loop, iterate, and rearrange design steps to achieve agile design.

    Module 4. Content, Activities, and Objectives. Use validated templates to rapidly incorporate existing content resources in effective and engaging activities.

    Module 5. Changing Roles. Improve your training design by transforming participants into co-facilitators, co-designers, coaches, and evaluators. Also, transform the trainers into facilitators.

    Module 6. Evaluation and Continuous Improvement. Integrate six types of valid evaluation techniques with all design steps. Use the evaluation data to prove and improve the training package.

    Module 7. E-Learning and Virtual Classrooms. Adapt and apply the 4-Door™ approach to rapidly design e-learning courses and LOLAs (Live Online Learning Activities) to instantly design effective training webinars.

    *Lunch, light refreshments and snacks will be provided.
