Fierce Was Inspired at the 2012 ASTD Conference and Expo

Fierce Inc at 2012 ASTD Conference

Fierce, Inc. had the pleasure of both presenting and exhibiting at this year’s 2012 American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) International Conference and Expo.

Thank you to all those who attended the conference and stopped by our booth.

We had a great time meeting everyone and engaging in great conversations. We were revitalized by the ideas and learning taking place around us - particularly, the Jim Collins keynote that kicked off the conference.

His message was inspiring and thought-provoking, and provided a great insight about what it means to truly be “great”.

The Fierce Tip of the Week we set out to honor at the conference was to let silence do the heavy lifting. Our team really strove to listen and have some silence exist in our  conversations.

Rather than rushing to fill the void, when so many people were processing the information, we worked to give them space. This especially was true in our Fierce Coaching and Fierce Confrontation sessions, where we were grateful to have the rooms filled to capacity with people excited to learn.

Our reward, for letting silence do the heavy lifting, was some really amazing conversations that happened in a short amount of time!

Fierce was moved by how dedicated the attendees of the conference were to professional learning and training of their employees. We can’t thank you enough for allowing us to share in your passion.

If you attended the conference, what was a highlight for you?
