Join us for our virtual May 2021 Sioux Empire SHRM chapter meeting and HR educational opportunity!   


Presented by Elisa Garn

The value of HR is at an all-time high. The Chief People Officer title is one of the highest in demand and hardest to fill. How are you preparing to evolve into an adaptive, progressive strategist to meet the current and future needs of the employee experience?

It starts with your mindset. This session discusses how to prepare mentally for change and how to become an in-demand leader through creating confidence, telling stories and building tribes.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Promotes a growth mindset
  2. Clarifies roles and responsibilities of various HR professionals and skill sets
  3. Informs HR on what CEO’s expect based on current survey data (2018/2019)
  4. Provides action plan on how to get buy in, increase credibility and elevate the role HR plays in the C-suite/executive team
