The ATD Joint Transition & Coaching SIG Meeting on August 18 was well attended - 32 people came to hear Steve Harrison, Chairman of Lee Hecht Harrison, present a session on "Winning the Tiebreaker Interview - Cracking the Code in a Tough Market."  

Mr. Harrison discussed innovation (and accidental innovations like Post-it notes, Velcro, Champagne, etc.), compliance, ethics, corporate social responsibility, leadership, employee engagement, globalism, and future trends.  He recommended a number of books, such as The Corner Office, Innovation to the Core, Nuts and suggested joining the SCCE (Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics). 

He emphasized the importance of "contemporizing yourself" and shared the two most important words in an interview:  "For example..."  The audience was very engaged in the entertaining presentation and to make the session even more fun, Mr. Harrison gave out prizes (accidental innovations, books, etc.) to anyone who answered a question correctly.  He also provided a bottle of Champagne for the door prize. 

Participants left energized and their feedback consisted of many positive comments about both the presenter and the topic.
