Ben Powers and Paul Toth to Facilitate ATD SIG on The Change Cycle

VLC's Ben Powers and Paul Toth will be facilitating an ATD SIG on May 31st, 2017 at Lane Press:


Discussion Topic: The Change Cycle

Facilitators: Paul Toth and Ben Powers

Come join us for a morning of networking, knowledge sharing, and stimulating conversation about this new leadership development topic. Free for members, $10 for non-members.  This is your opportunity to meet with other professionals working in a similar industry or with similar interests. 

Discussion Summary: 

This workshop is designed to develop a level of comfort and proficiency with managing the never-ending changes organizations and individuals are facing at work. During facilitated full-group discussion and small group breakouts we will:

     1) Get grounded in how humans naturally react to the changes that affect us.

     2) Explore the 6 stages of the Change Cycle model as a foundation. 

     3) Discover how to integrate other models of change. 

Participants will leave with a more comprehensive understanding that will allow each of us to better thrive in the unknown space of change. 

Tentative Agenda:

9:00-10:30     Coffee, Program & Discussion

10:30-11:00   Open Networking

What is a SIG? A Special Interest Group (SIG) a lightly facilitated conversation focused around a specific topic where participants come to reflect,  learn and share with one another – very much like give & take.  The intention is to engage our collective talent and intellect by capitalizing on the diversity of experience, perspectives and knowledge in the room. 

SIGs represent one of the many ways to grow professionally and personally, to network, learn new trends and industry directions, and to take useful information back to your organization.

SIGs also provide a wonderful opportunity to become personally involved in your Vermont Chapter.  If you would like to co-facilitate an upcoming SIG, please contact our Program Director, Melinda Friedlander at
