The bulk of an attendee’s time spent at the CLO Symposium consists of going to workshops and networking with peers. Both activities help learning leaders grow their industry knowledge. But there’s no better way to get inspired to keep the learning industry moving forward than by attending the Symposium keynote presentations.
One of this year’s keynote speakers is Dr. Heidi Reeder, an award-winning associate professor of communication at Boise State University.
Reeder’s presentation on what best gets people to achieve their goals, as outlined in her 2014 book titled “Commit to Win,” is scheduled for April 14th at 8:15 a.m.
According to her book, the key to reaching any goal, whether it’s to hit the gym more often or to finally quit that dead-end job, is commitment.
As in “Commit to Win,” Reeder’s presentation will show that commitment is made up of four variables:
- Treasures: the benefits we get from working toward a goal
- Troubles: the difficulties we have to deal with
- Contributions: the time, money, and effort we invest
- Choices: the number of good alternatives we have
According to Reeder’s website, “these variables make up a formula that not only measures how committed we are, but also shows which factors we can change to get our commitment level in synch with what we want to do. Packed with practical examples and action plans for a variety of situations, Commit to Win will allow readers to stop wishing for things to be different and instead make practical changes that will naturally empower them to reach their goals.”
As a Carnegie Foundation award-winning professor of communication and leadership, Reeder’s mission is to help teams and individuals communicate with confidence and authenticity, and maximize their personal and professional success.
Until next time!
