    ATD  West Virginia is proud to participate in the ATD Regional Webinar Series.

    This collaboration of 8 ATD chapters (including West Virginia, Central PA, Greater Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Mid NJ, Northern NJ, Long Island, & New York City.) is bringing together the best of our networks to provide world class presenters and content. 

    We look forward to sharing these webinars with you throughout 2023!


    About This Event

    This session will help you develop clear communication strategies for asking for what you need. You will be given the vocabulary to better understand the various types of requests and how they are best relayed to colleagues. For example, upgrading “soft asks”, which can create confusion and end up with a missed deadline, to clear and actionable requests. Beyond language coaching, you will learn a practical framework for holding yourself and others accountable for improving performance at the individual and team level. In addition, you’ll receive a tool for handling breakdowns in accountability. Following the session, you will be equipped to transform your teams’ conversations – to help you do your job, and do it well.

    Together we will:

    • Unlock the tools to ask for what you need and deal with breakdowns in accountability
    • Learn to recognize the differences between a “soft ask” and a “clear request” and between a “hedge” and a “clear agreement.”
    • Engage in valuable conversations around communication, accountability, and productivity
