    "Knowledge is Power"-Using knowledge management as a winning tool to talent development

    Guest Speaker-Ms. Marlo Thomas-Calloway, SHRM-CP/PHR

    Can you think of a time when someone shared important knowledge with you that allowed you to do your job better? Can you think of someone you shared knowledge with to help that person do what they do best? What did you get out of those experiences? How has those experiences allowed you to grow as a professional? 

    In this hands-on interactive workshop we will get in touch with our own experiences of knowledge sharing, so that we can begin to see the qualities that are needed to make KM happen. We will tap into various ways and best practices that will allow the use of KM in talent development. 

    What to bring? Your favorite book. 

    About the speaker: 

    Ms. Marlo Thomas-Calloway

    The HR Pro that guides you to career success. Marlo is a Talent Development Strategist, HR Consultant, Corporate Trainer, and Educator

    Develop, Direct and Connect 
    “I help guide individuals towards acquiring professional wealth in their careers."

    I proudly wear many hats in my career as a certified HR professional/trainer/educator/coach/advocate and mentor, but all these roads lead to one main passion in Human Resource Development (HRD). I'm known for getting things done, driving results, developing, directing and connecting individuals through training, coaching, collaboration, branding, social media, partnerships, and building meaningful relationships. 

    Developing in Human Resources 
    *As an experienced certified professional with over 18 years in management and human resources. I have had the opportunity to work in various industries such as city government, education, state and mental health. My goal is to develop a meaningful workplace by way of talent acquisition, talent development, and employee relations. 

    Directing Talent Development
    *Bringing out the best in people is one of my strongest compentencies. Without the ability to find the best hidden and obvious talents of the workforce then a company is not tapping into the potential worth of their greatest asset. Professionals are multi-talented today and often times enjoy using those talents at work. Directing individuals to the best places to use their talent is another one of my goals.

    Connecting via Career Coaching and Mentoring
    *Often times professionals need a little guidance and push to keep them motivated in their careers. Seeking out a career coach or mentor can be the answer to connecting the broken links for many people. I founded Ms.MentorMe-The Career Pro to "help individuals acquire professional wealth". Professional wealth is not always monetary first but, being ready, secure and confident in your career is always crucial to professional growth.

    Guest Speaker- Mark Bowers 

    Formative Assessment as a Tool for Doing Good

    It can be hard to understand how much of an impact a mission-centered organization actually makes.  Measuring countable things like donor dollars, volunteer hours and beds provided indicate activity…but not necessarily impact. Do these truly measure “better life”?

    To make it even more challenging, the “better life” for the population these organizations serve likely depends on external efforts as well as individual client behavior.  If you can’t make decisions based on meaningful measures of impact, then you should be measuring what matters!

    In this session, we’ll look at formative assessment as a set of motivators that could be used to systemically bring about and support your desired results.

    ATD Competency Model: CHANGE MANAGEMENT: Ability to apply a systematic process to shift individuals, teams, and organizations from current state to the desired state

    Learning Objectives: Describe the top three learning or service objectives of the program.

    1)  Recognize the difference between counting things and measuring things;

    2)  Learn the theory of rubrics as a tool for guiding and measuring internal performance and behaviors; and

    3)  Develop a technique for using rubric-based formative assessment at their home organization

    From Mark: 

    My goal is to help you replace self-doubt with self-confidence.

    My passion is to help social sector leaders make distinctive and sustainable impact for the community they serve.

    My objective is to help you be confident in making performance-based and data-driven decisions. You'll build the courage to act on those decisions; and you'll build the tools to actively manage the results of those decisions.

    About the speaker:

    My passion is to assist leaders make a distinctive, sustainable social impact—distinctive in that the leader’s organization is making a genuine difference, and sustainable in that the organization will still be around next year to do good.  I have 30-plus years in leadership and management of government, business and information technology efforts including a full career as a US Navy submarine officer, ten years in the corporate workforce, and now as an organizational excellence coach. 

    I also practice what I preach—I proudly serve as a volunteer leader for the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI), and also as a volunteer caseworker for a military/veteran financial aid organization. To serve you well, I maintain my coach credential (ACC), my Project Management Professional certification (PMP), and continue professional development in facilitation.
