Learning to Take Care of Yourself So You Can Take Care of Others
Join us for the SESHRM Spring Conference on March 28!
Our keynote speaker is James Robilotta. James’ cornerstone concept is that we as humans can’t learn from people who are perfect, we can only learn from people who are imperfect.
Our afternoon presenter is Anna Woodford. Anna will discuss the reasons behind losing your why and refocusing and energizing our minds and spirit to work to take care of ourselves so that we can begin to live our why.

James Robilotta, CSP, is a leadership author, motivational speaker, emcee, and trained improv comedian. After years of building, training, and leading teams, James followed an entrepreneurial dream and built two successful businesses. The first is an organization that incorporates freestyle rap into improv comedy (a success story for another day). And the second is his speaking and coaching business (a success story for today). James has been speaking internationally to willing and unwilling audiences since 2009 and has found that quality humor is the secret to hosting powerful conversations that make a genuine impact. His attendees leave feeling recharged, introspective, and ready to get out of their own way.
With years of research (and a few too many real-life case studies within his work), James has learned everything he can about fighting apathy and building strong company cultures. He uses this insight to help leaders manage and retain talent and give feedback that sticks, and to help organizations create community buy-in using curiosity. James’ cornerstone concept is that we as humans can’t learn from people who are perfect, we can only learn from people who are imperfect. And companies like American Express, GE, Accenture, and Afterpay have gravitated toward this message and found the insights to be invaluable in shifting the way their people show up for each other. James is working to bring humanity and community back into the workplace. He is on a mission to ensure that people are seen, heard, respected... and giggling a little, too.

Getting Back to Our Why…
How has your work week left you feeling lately? Are you feeling exhausted, unappreciated, and burned out? Remember your excitement when you were able to see your purpose and your value at work. Then the years passed, stress built, and in the hustle and bustle of getting the job done you are left feeling empty, second guessing your calling, and burnt out!
In this presentation, Anna will discuss the reasons behind losing your why and refocusing and energizing our minds and spirit to work to take care of ourselves so that we can begin to live our why, our purpose, our values at work, at home and in our community.
