ASD Sunrise Session on Wellness
Participants at this year’s ASD were able to start their day early, joining Patrick Riley, one of the top speakers on natural foods and healthy lifestyles in the country, as he talked about how to consider our health as a main priority. This year’s special Sunrise Session was designed for early risers and those who want to avoid later traffic build-up: a light breakfast was provided free for all attendees.
Everyone wants to be healthy. Sometimes the pressure of work life, responsibilities of family life, and making time to actually enjoy life can challenge our healthy decision making. Health is our most valuable personal resource influencing virtually every aspect of our lives. Through quality health we can enjoy a natural balance between work and play, activity and rest, current demands and future goals, and individual desires and relationship needs.Read more
ASD 2014 Presenters
NJOD ASD 2014 – Titles and Topics
ASD 2014 featured 18 Presentations, a nationally recognized Keynote Speaker, and an Executive Panel of four distinguished corporate executives discussed this year’s theme: ACCEPTING THE CHALLENGE — INSPIRING RESULTS.
Following the Sunrise Session on Wellness, at 9 a.m. our Keynote speaker addressed all attendees with an inspiring and informative message on leadership. Participants then selected the topics of choice from a full morning of presentations. At mid-day participants relaxed to enjoy a hot lunch while networking with colleagues. ASD Networking Lunch is a popular opportunity to speak informally with the presenter of your choice: presenters sat at tables numbered according to the Presenter’s number in the Program Book. Following lunch the Executive Panel took stage offering unique experiences in the field of OD. The remainder of the afternoon will filled with a choice of presentations, often making the selection of interesting options difficult.
Annual Sharing Day
Save the date of May 7, 2015 for the NJOD’s 17th Annual Sharing Day– you won’t want to miss this one!
Our 16th Annual Sharing Day was an amazing day. Reviews from participants who attended the May 1 event included:
“Best ASD yet” – “So many great presenters, it was hard to choose” — “The Executive Panel was inspiring” — “Sally Helgesen was engaging and informative”
The theme for ASD 2014 set the stage for the day, based on the inspirational quote of Anne Frank:
ACCEPTING THE CHALLENGE.
“Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!”
