This session will provide a background on how lean thinking and tools can help safety and any HR function. Following the teachings of W. Edwards Deming, Toyota created a production system, now commonly referred to as lean production. What is not well understood is that “lean” works in any office and business, regardless of size. Whether healthcare, small enterprise, food service, or non – profit, “lean” can help improve teamwork, culture and drive continuous improvement, but only if we go back to basics and strip away the mystery that this thinking is only for the manufacturing floor. Participants in the session will gain new insight into both “how” and “why” standards should be developed.

Leadership is the most overanalyzed, thoroughly dissected, and utterly confused topic in business. The expectations that leaders are held to have become so inflated that practically no one can categorically quality as a “leader” anymore. Leaders are expected to be bold and calculated, passionate and reasonable, rational
and emotional, confident and humble, driven and patient, strategic and tactical, competitive and cooperative, principled and flexible. Of course, it is possible to be all of those things…if you’re
The problem is that the ever-growing and ever-changing list of leadership criteria causes people to opt-out of the chance to lead. And those who do choose to lead doubt themselves.
Open-door Leadership involves aligning the needs of the organization with the career aspirations of the people you lead. People and organizations grow and develop when they intentionally pursue goals and challenges that stretch their skills and test their mettle.
“Awaken the Sleeping Giants” poignantly speaks to the pivotal role HR plays at this crucial time. Through a deeper understanding of the upcoming talent shortage and its future implications, HR will be compelled to claim their place at the boardroom table. It will mean partaking in company direction, strategy and equipping the corporate culture with the “Attraction Factor”. HR will have to “stand in the gap” to create a sea-change in thinking, new levels of conscious intention and developing company culture by design rather than by default.
This powerful talk is a must-attend for HR Professionals interested in their organization’s survival.

We often hear that developing one’s "personal brand" is imperative as part of professional/leadership development. If we use a lens where "personal brand" is analogous to our favourite consumer brands, we can mostly agree that we expect the packaging, attributes, features of these brands to remain consistent and reliable over time.
Conversely, we might all agree that Leadership is a lifelong journey of continuous learning, growth, and change. That being said, the taxonomy “personal brand” is seemingly out of sync with how many of us view Leadership Development.
However, “Cultivating your Leadership Voice” is about developing and sharing your personal knowledge, skills, abilities, experience and character- and ultimately the story of your journey (your “Song Sheet”), and how it evolves over time.
We will discover how we can do that in this session.
Fifty to 60% of companies fail to achieve their goals and objectives (Source: McKinsey & Co and IBM Global Business Services). What can be done about this and whose responsibility is it to see that the situation improves?
The first question is why does this happen with the answer being because employees don’t know what they need to do to help the company achieve its goals and objectives, and/or because they are too preoccupied with personal issues to do what is expected of them.
The responsibility for this rests with the CEO, however he or she can’t do what is needed alone. While Human Resources should be the obvious choice to address this problem it is not viewed as a “line” function as often as it is “staff”, and as a result, they are not called upon to help with goal achievement.
This presentation discusses both the problem (why companies fail to achieve their goals and objectives) as well as what HR can do to gain the trust of senior management regarding their contribution to the overall effort.

Workplace grief costs U.S. businesses billions of dollars a year in reduced productivity and increased errors and accidents, yet the word grief rarely shows up in reports. In The Hidden Annual Cost of Grief in America’s Workplace 2003 report, the keyword in the title of this report is the word "hidden." It is just that factor that has caused the problem to escalate to now unimaginable proportions and it is the essential reason that it is getting worse rather than better.
