Cleveland State Community College partnered with the Association for Talent Development (ATD) to hold the Cleveland GIG Event: “Build and Maintain Trust.” The event, held on the Cleveland State campus, featured  speakers Andre Nelson and Dirk Bayless, both certified mentors and coaches, speaking on the topic of “Building Trust.” Trust is the heart of the relationship, and it’s especially critical in the workplace. The primary factor affecting employee turnover is whether or not a trusting relationship was developed between the manager and the employee.

The Association for Talent Development (ATD), formerly ASTD, is the world's largest association dedicated to those professionals who develop talent in organizations. These professionals help others achieve their full potential by improving their knowledge, skills, and abilities.

The Chattanooga Area Chapter was established in 1969. Members work in healthcare, manufacturing, consulting management, and many other fields - all with talent development priorities.

The local Chattanooga Area Chapter provides its members with professional development and networking opportunities: with monthly meetings designed for learning, sharing, and networking. ATD also hosts workshops and educational programs a few times each year, enabling its members and the community at large to become certified in various talent development skills and techniques.
