"Be careful when you follow the masses. Sometimes the 'm' is silent."

Summer is finally here, and that means summer vacations for many of us. It also means we'll all be taking our turns providing vacation coverage for those in our offices who are away. So while it seems like things should slow down in the summer, that's not always the case.

This month, we're asking our Client Practitioners for some feedback through a short survey, and we've got a number of learning opportunities set for over the summer.  We're taking registrations for our upcoming Insights Accreditation sessions, and there are Renewals happening as well - check out the dates in our Upcoming Events section.  As well, we've got the usual interesting articles at the end of this email.

For now, we invite you to top up that mug, take five, and catch up on the latest news and information from Insights Learning and Development.
null CP Survey and Resources    
We'd like your input.  If you're a Client Practitioner, we invite you to   take a short 2-minute survey and let us know how we can better support you in your work with Insights Discovery.   
Please take a moment to tell what type of support would help you be even more successful as an Insights Discovery Client Practitioner in your organization?

Virtual Renewals
This two-hour Insights Discovery Virtual Renewal is an option for practitioners who feel the need to get thoroughly refreshed on all the core theory and application of Insights Discovery but can't commit to a full day event. If you're Insights-savvy and experienced, or if you've been out of the game a while and want to review the 'basics', these virtual renewals might be just right for you.

In addition to re-acquainting you with all the fundamentals, this webinar will give you an opportunity to assess your coaching and facilitation practice, and to get hints and tips from Insights experts and fellow practitioners.

Become an Insights Practitioner
Nobody knows the challenges your organization is facing better than those on the inside.
That's why we've accredited thousands of people around the world, putting the power of Insights Discovery where it belongs - in the hands of your learning and development professionals.

If you're a learning and development consultant looking to use Insights Discovery with your own customers, get in touch for more information.   
There are now over 30 public and internal Accreditations every year across North America, which demonstrates how many organizations are choosing to bring Insights Discovery 'in house'.  In Western Canada, we always end up with a waiting list for IDA sessions, so if you're considering attending an IDA in a city near you, don't hesitate.
You can find more details about IDA sessions and download an IDA Fact sheet   here.

 One-Day Practitioner Renewals
Renewal is required for all Insights Discovery Practitioners two years from your date of Accreditation to ensure you have the most current information available to you to continue using the Insights Discovery suite as effectively as possible.   
These full day sessions are perfect for those who want to review the basics and want time to ask broader questions, and connect with other Insights practitioners to see what others are doing.
It is a great opportunity for you to refresh your knowledge, share best practices with other Practitioners, and get exposure to new materials and ideas for enhancing programs inside your organization.

Upcoming Renewal dates  
Halifax - Tuesday, July 24  
Calgary - Wednesday, October 17
