    Speaker Lineup:

    The Dynamics of Change:  The Difference Between Success and Failure

    Jared Detter, Founder, Profectus Performance Consulting

    Change is everywhere in organizations and is necessary for companies to adapt and succeed.  However, change introduces inefficiencies into organizations.  These inefficiencies can take the form of down time, retraining, confusion, more bureaucracy, loss of institutional knowledge, employee resistance, and even sometimes sabotage.  Change can be very expensive, especially when a change initiative fails, due to things like resistance and sabotage.  It is essential that leaders understand what happens in organizations and with employees when faced with the stress of change

    1) How an organization is impacted by change

    2) How to manage yourself through change

    3) How to lead your team through change

    Applying Your Strategic Human Resources Business Partner (SHRBP) “Know-How” with HR-As-Coach Communications Skills to Create Maximized Client Service Partnerships and Organizational Outcomes

    Kristin Mann, Principal, Executive Leadership Coach, Senior HR Consultant, Lee Thomas Consulting Associates

    In this compelling presentation, Kristin Mann, Executive Leadership Coach and Senior Human Resources Consultant, will review a method for Strategic HR Business Partners (SHRBP) to apply their strategic “know-how” to maximize client service partnerships and business and organizational performance outcomes incorporating valuable HR program and talent contributions to the people, teams and organizations they lead, manage and serve.

    Cultural Considerations:  They’re not just International

    Lynn M. Lorenz, MBA, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, President, HR Goddess, Inc.

    Can’t we all just get along?  Unfortunately, cultural differences can create misunderstandings in the global workplace.  Language, gestures, orientation to time – people understand the world differently based on their cultural heritage.  And while understanding these differences can have an impact on the success of your global operations, they can impact your domestic workforce as well.  This presentation will help you understand those differences and how to leverage them into a strategic advantage for your company.
