    Networking and Clinic - Accounting Comes Alive for Learning & Development Professionals
     

    A senior global executive answered our question the other day, "Are you in HR?"  She shot back the answer “Firstly I’m a business person, then yes… I’m in Talent Management.”    This acclaimed interactive session, using physical props, interactive exercises, and a focus on plain language, gives ‘non-finance’ people the foundational skills they need to build business acumen and be regarded as business equals by their financial colleagues.  By addressing key concepts that other finance-for-non-finance courses ‘step over’, and doing it with breathtaking simplicity, this enjoyable interactive session sets people free to overcome limiting beliefs and shine.

    Two learning objectives determine the outcomes of this session:

    •  Acquiring key accounting literacy concepts;
    • Converting financial information into a business story.

      About Our Presenter

      Mark Robilliard is Co-founder and a CEO of America’s branch of Color Accounting International, a publishing company and training provider, which developed and distribute the Color Accounting learning system. The system uses a graphical representation of the Balance Sheet and Income Statement - the BaSIS Framework™ - to present financial information. 

      Seeing how accounting works makes it much easier to understand. Color Accounting also emphasizes language: it defines important concepts with simple words that make sense. 

      Color Accounting is a social enterprise, with a dual social-impact and commercial motive. It advocates accounting as a fundamental form of literacy, like Reading, Writing and Arithmetic. Accounting literacy has the power to improve lives, corporations, not-for-profit organizations and governments.

      • The Color Accounting Network includes:
      • Solution Providers, who provide educational workshops for their clients
      • Color Accounting Leaders, who are accredited by us to facilitate the workshops
      • Color Accounting Educators, who tutor accounting students.

      Using Brain-Aware Approaches for Optimal Learning

      In this day-long interactive workshop, stories and analogies will illuminate how the adult brain learns without getting mired in unnecessary details of brain architecture. By understanding why and under what conditions the brain shies away from learning and resists new behaviors, you will discover new approaches for learning and growth. You will also explore ways to stimulate adults’ brains to be curious, to seek new learning and new ways of doing things. This workshop emphasizes brain-aware approaches that incorporate research on the embodied, analogical brain. Through a variety of activities, you will share and build on your current best practices, and you will explore new and expanded approaches to add to your repertoires for fostering optimal learning.

      The following learning objectives determine the outcomes of this workshop: 

      • Understand how the brain learns best
      • Discover why the brain (sometimes) resists new learning
      • Become familiar with new research on learning and the brain
      • Identify and expand effective brain-aware strategies to improve learning   

      Workshop leaders’ latest book Facilitating Learning with the Adult Brain in Mind: A Conceptual and Practical Guide (Jossey-Bass, 2016) will be distributed during the workshop at no additional cost.
