SESHRM 2020 Fall Conference

(Onsite AND Online)

Courageous Leadership Through Chaos

Presented by Cindy Solomon

Every HR leader and practitioner knows 2020 has been unlike anything before it. We've been on the receiving end of massive professional and personal changes, chaos and uncertainty all the while trying to manage keeping our organizations safe, healthy and moving toward our goals. The good news is that there's never been a better time for HR to not only gain a better/stronger seat at the table but also to build your own professional skills to not just meet these current challenges, but to be stronger, more effective and more successful at the end of what's become a marathon. This session focuses on the specific skills everyone can utilize to build their impact regardless of industry, company or level.

  • This will be a session that YOU and your LEADERS will not want to miss if your organization wants to stay relevant in your industry.
  • Attendees will hear a 1 hour keynote AND a 1 hour hands-on workshop where you will get tools to take back to the office immediately!

With her Courageous Leadership keynotes and programs, Cindy has helped hundreds of companies around the world identify, nurture and leverage the leadership potential in both their front-line employees and their leadership teams. Cindy counts among her clients 26 J.D.Power Award winners, and industry leaders such as Google, Alaska Airlines, UPS, Oracle, Wells Fargo and The Ritz-Carlton, among others.

Afternoon Session: Balance Your Conflict
Step by Step Communication to Transform Difficult Interactions

Presented by Dr. Jody Janati

Got conflict? Find your Conversation Peace. Most people have come to accept that conflict is inevitable. Assertive communication promotes healthy boundaries and can transform conflict during difficult conversations. There are a number of conflict management workshops offered each year, yet rarely does the facilitator tell participants exactly what should be said or done. The purpose of this workshop is to specifically address, "What do I say and do" when dealing with people during difficult situations to avoid destructive patterns. Participants will learn how to control their anger and emotions, be assertive and effectively defuse conflict through a variety of applied approaches. Multiple techniques will be discussed to demonstrate that practical solutions are attainable through a variety of step by step methods.

Both speakers will give virtual presentations from their home so you may attend this conference from anywhere! We are offering the option to attend the virtual conference at the Hilton Garden Inn where we will watch both presentations together while enjoying lunch, networking, and time with our sponsors.
