Professional development can be challenging. And in this environment in which so much is changing constantly, providing meaningful professional development is more important than ever to retain your staff and to ensure that they have the skills and knowledge needed to help your organization survive and thrive through this turbulent time.

In this presentation, ATD Maine Board Members Sheila Adkins and Richard Parent will guide you through the ATD Capability Model and show you how to use the model to design professional development goals that will give your staff and your organization the insight and abilities they need be able to successfully adapt to future needs.
