#SHRM18, In Gratitude

 

 

My heart and mind are full of appreciation for what transpired over the last few days at the 2018 SHRM Annual Conference (#SHRM18). I have notes upon notes, tweets upon tweets, follow-ups upon follow-ups, and ideas upon ideas to work through. But I can’t get past one thing.

I’m incredibly grateful for my #SHRM18 experience.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to travel to Chicago. I’m grateful for being able to peel away from work long enough to take in every aspect of the conference. I’m grateful to new and...

I was tweeting fast & furious, but I still know I missed a few parts....

Wrap Up of #SHRM18

 


 

As SHRM18 wrapped up, I thought about the event by listening to music on my drive home. I heard an old song called “It’s Over” by Boz Scaggs, I thought that’s it, it’s my metaphor for an event wrap up. However, the song is really about a failed relationship so that didn’t really capture the moment. 

Then it came to me at two in the morning the night after I got home. It is an old Steely Dan song that really captured the feel of...

Overwhelmed. Overloaded. Overjoyed. A #SHRM18 Recap

 

 

 

Whew! The 2018 Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) annual conference is over. 24 hours later and I’m still letting the whole experience sink in. I’m usually not at a loss for words, but this conference has me searching for the right things to say. After reflecting a bit, I realize I cannot put into words how I really feel, but I can say that I am overwhelmed. I’m overloaded. But,...

Women at Work: How to Command a Room #SHRM18

 

 

Earlier this year, I launched a series here on Workology focused on women in the workplace. The feedback from my first blog post was clear. I received many emails, DMs and phone calls sharing their stories and wanting more. Since I’ve written about women supporting women in the workplace, and because it’s a topic that is near and dear to my heart (and my job), I was excited to attend Monday’s SHRM18 session, “The...
