“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.

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.
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. In this presentation we will address the definition of grief, the grief/workplace connection, the cost of "presenteeism" to corporations and we will discover how managers and other employees can support coworkers who have experienced personal loss.
