       Politics of  Consulting




    Limited enrollment (20) for virtual sessions  

    Virtual  11:00 to 4:30 pm 

    Politics is the art of exchanging favors. It is all about who you know and what you owe. When done well is the oil that makes good things happen. When done badly it compromises personal and professional ethics, destroys trust, and demeans one’s profession. Judy will bring clarity to why politics is important and the value of doing it well. She will give you practical tips about how to increase your influence so your ideas get a fair hearing and your opinion if valued. (P.S. she hails from Chicago, the home of the best and the worst in politics.)
    Why should you attend? You will gain a deeper understanding of:
    • The attributes of politics done well and done poorly
    • The importance of building political support
    • The necessity to engage in politics

    Future of Work

    What it Means for YOUR Organization


    Presented by The Hale Center and

    Knapp & Associates International

    Who is this workshop for?

    Board and staff who are future oriented, seeking to understand how critical trends are changing the workplace, and who want to implement actions today to ensure their professional development and credentialing programs will be prepared for the future.

    How will you and your organization benefit from this experience?

    1. You’ll learn how automation, AI, and machine learning will change job roles and how to prepare your programs for the impact.
    2. You’ll gain insights into Gen Z: what motivates them, how they prefer to learn, what they think about professional credentials, and how to apply these insights to the design of your programs.
    3. You’ll discover how workforce changes, such as non-linear career journeys, side hustles & gigs, and re-skilling and up-skilling, will impact the design of your programs.
    4. You’ll explore how “new” credential types (e.g., micro-credentials) and credential frameworks (e.g., stackable credentials) can help you to better address the needs of today’s (and tomorrow’s) workforce. 

      What our participants say

      “Judy and Lenora presented a well-researched and well-organized workshop for us on the Future of Work. The trends they selected were directly impacting the future of work and the case studies and change management exercises were thoughtful and immediately applicable the next day back at the office.”  

      Rose Noxon, PHD, CPT

      President, International Society for Performance Improvement

      “Judith Hale and Lenora Knapp created a most interactive and engaging workshop! Learning about “The Future of Work” enabled participants from several industries, government, academic institutions and non-profits to work together on practical exercises and case studies.  Concepts and tools can be immediately applied in the workplace.”

      Dr. Nancy Crain Burns, CPT,

      International Society for Performance Improvement, Board of Directors

      “We don’t have the time or resources to pull together and synthesize all this information. You’ve made it doable for us to prepare for the future.”

      “The case studies were realistic and helped me to tie together and apply everything I learned in the workshop.”

      “The level of collaboration and learning which this workshop fostered was amazing!”
