It's Okay to be Human!!- Proven Ways to Lead in Your HR Role

Working with people can be challenging. It’s easy to become overwhelmed, burned out and become a person who goes through the motions in HR. However, that’s not who we should be – ever !! This session will confront the reality of where HR is in today’s organizations and where it should go. It starts with us being genuine humans ourselves. All. The. Time. You’ll learn proven ways to be yourself and be the leader you were meant to be as a business professional who happens to practice HR.

Attendees of this event will hear about the following learning objectives:

  • How to work directly with the C-Level of the organization to make sure the culture is consistent and inclusive.
  • Develop staff in their work and through their role using measurements specific to their company. Will discuss how to take check-ins and develop relationships vs. traditional performance management systems. 
  • Redefine the workflow of HR to integrate into the general workflow of the entire business.
