HR Forum I – Thursday, February 8, 2018
Become More Personally Effective and Successful
Wouldn’t we all like to be more personally effective and highly successful?  Many people think if they try harder or change their attitude either one of those two strategies will work, yet neither one of those strategies tend to be effective for very long.  Years ago success was based upon character ethic like courage, justice, truth, patience, simplicity, integrity, and other similar virtues.  The way people view success more recently is now a function of attitudes, behaviors, personality, and public image.  When people see others being successful they often ask for tips or tricks of how to reach that same type of success.  But those quick fixes are often just short term solutions.  What is really needed to change in a given situation is to change ourselves and in order to change ourselves, we need to identify and change our perceptions. Find how you can be more personally effective and successful.
HR Forum II - Tuesday,  May 15 , 2018
Career Development   
Employees change and grow and the types of work they want to do often changes as well and so do the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to deal with those changes.  The old model of a career where an employee stayed with one organization and worked their way up the ladder has transformed to where employees are changing companies every year or two.   If organizations can assist and prepare employees for new responsibilities within the organization, the organization can be better prepared to meet their human resources needs and the career development tools and activities utilized can help employees achieve personal and profession growth while often increasing their desire to remain with their organization.  As employees progress through a series of stages in their careers, each of those stages has a unique set of issues, themes, and tasks and with a strong career management and development program, organizations can help increase employee retention and growth and foster innovation and adaptation to change in the workplace.  
HR Forum III - Thursday, August 9
Delegation and Empowerment
More and more organizations are empowering employees and asking them to make key decisions that directly affect their work.  This increased use of empowerment is driven by several forces such as helping employees feel valued and effective, helping the organization make quicker decisions to meet customer needs, freeing up managers for more strategic work, and keeping organizations competitive.  Instead of managers making all the decisions, managers can delegate responsibility and authority to their employees so that employees either provide input towards decision or they can make the decisions.  It is essential that both managers and employees are trained so that both feel confident that delegation will work and be successful.  Employees often find that they have increased motivation for accomplishing tasks, improved effectiveness and creativity, and increased satisfaction that they contribute to the organizations goals.  It’s a win-win for employees, managers, and the organization! 
HR Forum IV - Thursday, November 8, 2018 
Increase Your Critical Thinking and Learning Agility
Wouldn’t you like to know what to do when you don’t know what to do?  Critical thinking was ranked #1 on the “Most Important Skills for Next Gen Leaders” on the EDA/Pearson Trends in Executive Development Survey since 2012. In that same survey critical thinking was also identified as the skill most lacking in the next generation of leaders.  Indeed. Com reported that the number of job postings that mention critical thinking skills has doubled since 2009.  When the survey was repeated in 2016, employers still want employees with critical thinking skills, but they also want employees with learning agility.   Learning agility is a set of skills that allows individuals to learn something in one situation and apply it in a completely different situation. It is about gathering patterns from one context and then using those patterns in a completely new context. Come find out how you can increase your Critical Thinking and Learning Agility skills so you can “know what to do when you don’t know what to do.”
