        Join us for a Learning & Development CoP Social Learning Event that is all about forging new connections based on opportunities to help one another.

        Asking for help can be daunting. We worry that we’re being a bother or asking for too much, but did you know that helping others is scientifically proven to make people happier?

        At our social learning events, we will challenge you to provide others with the opportunity to be a little bit happier by asking for help and offering it in return.

        Come prepared with a simple request that you can make and an open mind about the skills you have to offer. You will use these conversations to build new relationships – you never know who can help!

        How to prepare:

        • Reflect on what you'd like to know, and what has worked for you?
        • Think about concrete topics to discuss such as, "What goes into a portfolio?" 
        • Make sure you have your LinkedIn url/websites handy! Learn how to customize yours here: https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/topics/6042/6054/87
        • Most importantly, come prepared to have fun and get to know others
        Note: Web recordings of ATD Greater Atlanta events are a members-only benefit.
