Our legacy as a company is the mark we leave on every person who takes one of our courses, participates in an assessment, or is hired using our selection processes. - DDI President, Bob Rogers
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) April 26, 2011
For more than 40 years, Development Dimensions International (DDI) has been developing leaders and individual contributors’ skills to improve their interactions and relationships in the workplace—which has led not only to significant business results, but also to an enhanced work experience for millions of people around the world.
DDI plans to compile the stories from individuals about how they’ve changed as a manager, how assessment has given them a big ‘ah-ha’ about their performance, how an associate saw their leader become a better manager, or other stories about how DDI has sparked a change for the better in someone’s professional, or even personal, life.
“By the nature of the work we do with leaders and employees, DDI has a significant influence on individuals—in their work and even personal lives,” Bob Rogers, President of DDI, said. “Our legacy as a company is the mark we leave on every person who takes one of our courses, participates in an assessment, or is hired using our selection processes. Our goal is to make a difference in people’s lives around the world.”
The currently un-named book will be released in 2012, and will feature stories from individuals around the world.
In addition to having their story featured in the book, contributors will all be put into a drawing for a chance to win a full ASTD 2012 Conference pass, an iPad2 or a $500 contribution to the charity of the winner’s choice.
The deadline for submission is June 30, 2011 and submissions can be completed online or by emailing spark(at)ddiworld(dot)com.
