Achieving success as a business partner in your organization
requires strong consulting skills and relationship building.
Through ATD's practical 5-D Consulting model, learn
effective internal consulting skills that will enable you to
help your clients achieve their desired outcomes, establish
goals, and manage expectations. Guide clients through an
instructional design or organizational development project:
help them overcome obstacles and resistance, and build
your credibility to influence decision-making.
Learning professionals must demonstrate strong consulting
skills to successfully guide their organizations toward
optimal performance. Ensure your ability to practice the
most effective behaviors and processes for internal
consulting within your organization. Explore ATD's 5-D
model and practice 30 fundamental consulting
competencies with tools that can be put to use on the job
immediately. External consultants will find that they will
also benefit from the concepts covered in the course.
Collaborating in small groups, you'll follow a case study from
start to finish, apply skills to consulting scenarios, solve
problems, role-play meetings, try out checklists, and make
decisions just as consultants do every day. You'll leave the
program knowing your areas of strength and need, and will
have the opportunity to create a personal development plan
to become a better consultant. In a recent study, 100
percent of participants felt that the ATD Consulting Skills
Certificate was a worthwhile investment, because it
provided a practical model and structured approach to a
consulting engagement, and empowered them to ask the
right questions of their clients.
This program is for professionals who are new to an
internal consulting role or want to prepare to assume this
role in the future. Experienced learning and development
professionals and external consultants who want to
sharpen their consulting skills will also benefit.
ATD Education programs are designed primarily for
learning professionals – trainers, instructional designers,
and organizational development practitioners – but also
greatly benefit anyone within an organization who is
responsible for developing others, from managers to
human resources specialists.
