I must admit coming into a national conference for the first time was somewhat daunting for me. There was not a feeling of nervousness, but more of a fear of being overwhelmed. Knowing that there’s going to be tons of information given in just a few days, I wanted to come in with a clear objective. What area can I focus on that I can bring back home and start a conversation about implementing some of the things I learned.
The world is changing at a pace we have never seen before. A quick look at your Twitter feed or news scroll will show you just how volatile and uncertain the world has become. I believe our greatest challenge in navigating an unpredictable world is remembering to stick to the basics: Get your leaders right and connect with your people!
Get Your Leaders Right
In all my years of going to local, state and SHRM Annual Conferences, I’ve never been to a SHRM conference that focuses solely on a specific topic or area of expertise.
Dr. Woody sits down with famed HR analyst Josh Bersin to talk HR trends, humanizing the work experience, and how to be a better coach for your people.
You’ve heard it said again and again, and perhaps you’ve experienced it yourself: People don’t leave organizations—they leave bosses.
Bad bosses come in many varieties: abusive and toxic, lazy and incompetent. There are few things more miserable in the workplace, and an organization full of bad bosses will kill the culture.
