TQ: The Future of Work

with Mike Song

Wednesday, September 16th, 2020

Virtual event - link in registration email


6:30pm – 8:30pm

What’s your technology profile?  Most professionals have no idea! In this groundbreaking seminar, Mike Song shows how all professionals fit into four distinct technology types. Better yet, Mike will help you understand your technology profile while delivering an action plan and amazing tech tips that will help you get more done.  

Mike will explain how to assess tech proficiency via The TQAT (Tech Quotient Assessment Tool).  The TQAT includes a sixty-question survey and algorithm that determines your technology type in the same way that the Myers-Briggs test defines personality types. 

The development of the TQAT has far-reaching implications for HR, OD, IT, and anyone interested in the Future of Work.   It provides a much-needed way to classify every employee’s tech aptitude so that they can receive targeted encouragement, mentorship, and training.  When TQ rises, it helps leaders lead, salespeople sell, and everyone gets more done. 

Bonus: Mike will share exciting TQ case studies from Capital One and Novartis.

Mike has presented this topic at the ATD International Conference and Expo as well as the ATD New England Chapter, to rave reviews.  

Background:

Training professionals know about IQ and EQ (Emotional Intelligence). Now it's time to focus on boosting TQ or Technical Intelligence across the enterprise. 

What is the Digital Skills Gap? A growing digital skills gap is impacting worker performance and ultimately businesses success. This gap is growing due to challenges faced by the advanced use of technology and how people adjust to automation issues. 

Only 1-in-10 workers feel proficient with their everyday digital tools 

Poor digital skills lower productivity by 21% costing $1.3 trillion a year 

Join best-selling author, researcher, and TQ pioneer Mike Song as he explains the coming Tech Quotient (TQ) megatrend. Mike defines TQ as the ability to strategically learn, leverage, and share technology. It is a proven, efficient, and systematic way to boost performance. Colleagues with a high TQ accomplish more while coaching their team to succeed. 

He will provide: 

  • Research from over 80,000 knowledge worker surveys at over 1000 organizations around the world. 
  • A comprehensive, new definition of TQ 
  • New ways to inspire widespread adoption of TQ insight
  • A TQ Assessment Tool (TQAT™) that measures tech expertise in a new way
  • Innovative strategies for implementing a successful TQ Initiative (TQI™)

Application on the Job:

  • Discover amazing, quick-to-learn, easy-to-use tech tips and share them with your team
  • Boost engagement and build team unity via improved e-communications
  • Learn new ways to transform an ordinary team into a tech-savvy productivity powerhouse
