November Event Highlights

Engaging Our Workforce with the Power of Purpose

Mini Conference at Wilderness Ridge

with Special Key Note John Chapo



As 2017 makes its final run toward closure and 2018 prepares to launch anew, your Lincoln ATD Chapter delivered the conference “Engaging our Workforce with the Power of Purpose, Thursday, November 2, 2017.  

With many of our ATD members in the business of Talent Development, one may at times feel compelled to chase the latest and greatest, when often times the very best is right in our own backyard.  In this case, some of the best are right here in Lincoln, Nebraska. 

Talent Development comes in many forms. Engaging our Workforce with the Power of Purpose highlighted a number of non-profits, successes in their own right. Our Keynote shared a rich history of community, and three for-profit businesses provided a contrast, which at times paralleled one another.   Intrinsic motivation is key to ones happiness at work and home, while extrinsic motivators may help to fuel this inner drive into positive behavior. 

This conference provided a look at programs, opportunities and the way and means to engage successfully one’s most valuable resource, their employees.


A Special THANK YOU to our non-profit and industry presenters!
