    Volunteer Opportunity - Crisis Assistance

    ATD Charlotte loves the community and is excited to give back once again. Please register to join us as we give our time to a worthy cause and partner with Crisis Assistance in Charlotte, NC on December 9th! Details are below!

    Crisis Assistance offers many services. ATD will be assisting in the Free Store. The Free Store provides donated clothing and household items all at no charge to families in need, so that people can use their limited resources on other necessities. 

    What will we be doing? Sorting and inspecting donations, hanging clothing, and stocking the Free Store as needed.

    When is the event? Saturday December 9th from 9am - 12pm 

    Where is the event? 500-A Spratt Street, Charlotte, NC, 28206 at the intersection of Graham and Statesville Avenue

    Special Instructions: 

    When volunteers arrive, feel free to park anywhere in our parking lot (we encourage carpooling). Your group will want to show up 10 minutes early to find parking and for signing in. You will want to enter through the “Welcome Volunteers” entrance which is the small door to the left of the Donation Drive Thru. A member of our Free Store Production team will help the group sign in, give a brief orientation and overview of our agency, and from there the group will work on the production side of the Free Store. Volunteers are encouraged to wear close-toed shoes and bring their own water bottle.

    Connie Chesner and Travis Cook

    Fear, nervousness, anxiety and stress... we all experience them and they drag our work and productivity, teams and focus away from tasks that are vital for success.  These primal reactions can only be battled at their level to achieve lasting results.  Enter a fully experiential program that taps into the primal needs for connection and community while bridging to soft skills vital to every day achievement and work such as trust, communication, leadership, achievement and goals, all enhanced by safety and security tools.  Join us for an experience like no other, where we guide you through psychological connections and exercises designed to increase individual and group cohesion, all while experientially learning a series of physical self defense skills.  You’ll leave more confident, connected, and clear on defenses that allow you to focus and forge forward with confidence through whatever challenges you face.  Don’t get left out of an experience people will be talking about and applying in dynamic ways across their roles and organizations for years to come.

    About Connie Chesner and Travis Cook:

    Connie Chesner has become a master at resiliency and human motivations through over 20 years in psychology, qualitative market research, and hard earned personal experience. From the depths of despair to the heights of industry success, she overcame a five-year abusive relationship and found the power of overcoming fear and embracing empowerment and now guides others through their challenges to show them the strength and resiliency contained in each of us. She’s been an international media expert, has run projects to launch and reform multi-national brands, and she weaves that deep understanding into guiding teams through their own challenges and fears. Today, she dives deep into her wisdom to guide others on their own journeys as individuals and as a part of teams.

    Travis Cook is a dynamic instructor with multiple world titles in Tae Kwon Do and nearly 20 years of instruction experience in Krav Maga. He’s worked with thousands of individuals at various stages of their journey’s to strength, skills, and empowerment by teaching them how to walk through fear and into control. Now, he guides individuals and teams to higher levels of consciousness, empowerment, and self-awareness, taking them to higher levels of knowledge and awareness which they will carry with them for a lifetime.

    Dr. Holly Baxter

    Expert knowledge is difficult to capture and transfer effectively, because it involves deeply-embedded skills that an expert may not be consciously aware of using and may not understand how to share. The challenge this poses is how to capture and transfer that knowledge among co-workers and external partners who need to work together on critical, high-stakes projects. Without effective knowledge transfer strategies, these valuable lessons learned and best practices are often lost. This is especially difficult with experts in niche specialties, when parties are geographically dispersed, and when the people who need the knowledge work in different organizations. The knowledge in each of these situations can be easily lost, yet it is knowledge essential to the success of the mission, especially in emergency situations such as responses to natural disaster events that are time-critical.

    This workshop is based on case studies of more than 200 top-level executives, engineers, and scientists at Fortune 500 companies, the military, and multiple government agencies. It begins by offering a background of knowledge transfer and flow strategies, and then offers effective processes for enhancing knowledge flow at all levels of organizations—both internally and externally. This workshop also covers the impact of internal vs. external parties on knowledge transfer, as well as maintaining knowledge flow when organizations are geographically dispersed. Best practices and tools are shared for capturing key knowledge, analyzing and documenting that knowledge, and multiple methods to transfer that key knowledge. The workshop also provides an open forum for addressing individual challenges that participants are facing.

    Rebecca Bales

    Employee engagement is stagnant across the US since 2011 per the recent Gallup studies, with the percentage of engaged employees hovering between 29 to 32% across the years.  Yet the solution we often use in the world of Talent Development, to help individuals raise their own self-awareness as well as understand the value and talents of those we work with, are the same employee assessment tools that were created back in 1943.

    So how is that working for you?  Why do we continue to gravitate back to these assessment tools designed to categorize others?  Join us for an interactive presentation that explorers a revolutionary approach to the world of behavioral tools designed to disrupt this pattern of categorization and transform the way organizations view the diversity of their people, including thought, communication and work style.  Experience the power of using assessment tools which pave the way to a more inclusive culture that recognizes and embraces the unique talents of its people and empowers you to provide disruptively innovative learning solutions, tools and resources.

    About Rebecca Bales:
