"Become a Trouble Maker: Choose, Challenge & Change"




Learning Objectives:

    1. Redefine strategic by tearing down the stagnate corporate walls
    2. Infuse innovation by destroying the ‘kindergarten-learned mentality’ of thinking inside the lines
    3. Rebuild a vision whereby HR leaders will challenge the corporate system to make it better.


Session Description:


Still doing the same thing and expecting different results? It is time to Disrupt Human Resources. It is time to become a Trouble Maker!! It’s time to refuse status quo and challenge the system to make it better. We are going to trash the buzzwords – strategic, engagement, innovation - and challenge you to tear down the walls of a static corporate culture. Learn to rebuild a vision whereby Talent Management will challenge the corporate system to make it better.

• Still using that boring ‘prison rulebook’ you call the Handbook?
• Still facilitating training in that same old boring conference room or training room?
• Still thinking that another employee engagement survey will be the solution?
• Still think a seat at the table will make you strategic?

If you answered yes to even one of those – you are old school!!! Time to challenge yourself and change. Human Resources should be the true leader of change in your organization. If you have the vision to drive success in your company through visionary leadership, this is the session for you. Become a TROUBLE MAKER – choose to challenge the system and change it . . . for the better!!!
