Leaders must be ever mindful of the environment they are creating, not just for themselves and their teams, but for their peers as well. In “Creating an Environment Where People Thrive,” we will discuss specific strategies that team members and leaders can adopt to achieve a greater level of influence as an employee, connect with external groups to a higher degree, and ultimately shape the environment within their organization.

After participating in this workshop, participants will be able to understand what it means to create a “thriving environment, the benefits of creating a thriving environment, and how to use this a key element in further developing their talents. Participants will have a good knowledge base on the five happy chemicals, what triggers these chemicals, and how to be intentional about releasing triggers. Also, participants will have the resources they need to develop an action plan, which can be immediately implemented.

The Elections Committee has reviewed each nomination packet and certified each nominee as eligible to run for office. Based on the information provided in the nomination packets, following are the candidate profiles.

There are two candidates for 2019 President-Elect: Lewana Harris and Jeremy Smith.

In 500 words or less, how will you contribute to ATD Tulsa chapter leadership? 

"As  President-Elect, in addition to supporting the President, I would be dedicated to creating a strategic goal that fosters board development and succession planning for the chapter.  Having an effective succession plan increases chapter membership by creating a pipeline for leadership experience and can transition prepared members into leaders. This would include leadership development via webinars and possibly in-person training." 

 

Jeremy Smith is the Manager of Talent Management at NORDAM and has 5 years experience in the Talent Development field.

Jeremy has been a member of ATD Tulsa since June 2016; and a Power Member since 2017.

In 500 words or less, how will you contribute to ATD Tulsa chapter leadership? 

"I have spent the last two years on the Board of Directors. In that time, I have gained much knowledge about the chapter and how to effectively run it. This year as VP of Administration, I have spent a lot of time with the President and President-Elect learning their roles while serving on the Policies and Procedures Committee, as well as at board meetings and chapter meetings. The chapter is headed in the right direction, and I am committed to furthering the work that these two board members are doing. I have a passion for people and helping them to succeed in both their professional careers as well as in their personal lives.

I understand that if I were to become President-Elect it would be a 3 year commitment (President-Elect, President, Past President) and I would spend those three years working with the board and the chapter members to increase membership, bringing in exceptional training to the chapter meetings, and doing whatever it takes to make the Tulsa Chapter of the ATD one of the best chapters in ATD.

I also would have the responsibility, as President-Elect, to head-up the committee for the 2019 Oklahoma State Conference. I would put my time and energy into making that conference a success, giving the attendees an unbelievable experience—making them better in their careers and giving them opportunities to develop personally.

I am committed to the success of this Chapter and to its members, and that is why I am nominating myself to be President-Elect in 2019."

In my 10+ years of human resource development and management, I have overseen the administration of an organization from 2 to 1700 employees and I feel this will be beneficial in helping ATD Tulsa maintain accurate and current information to best serve the members and business community. My responsibilities to my organizations has been to maintain complete and accurate records and my previous background in accounting and finance has contributed to my sense of accuracy. For any strong organization to run well, the administration of the “back office” must run smoothly so the organization can focus on its mission.

"Since becoming a member of ATD and later a Power Member, I understand the value that the organization and membership has to offer, which is why I would like to continue as VP of Membership. In my short time in serving in this role, I have already learned so much about ATD, the position of VP of Membership, and my fellow ATD Board Members. While attending ICE 2018, I sought out opportunities to gain knowledge from other successful chapters and bring some of those ideas back to Tulsa. My goal for VP of Membership in 2018 is really learn the role and find opportunities for improvement and growth, but if awarded this opportunity in 2019 I want to focus on innovation, growth, engagement, and really make it ATD Tulsa’s best year yet!"
