Photo Album Process: A Points of You™ Workshop

Date: August 21, 2018

Time: 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Location: Leadership Arts Associates

Photo Album Process: A Points of You™ Workshop

Each of us has a story. We wake up with it in the morning, and usually, without noticing, it walks with us throughout the day. Our story is present everywhere. In the variety of our relationships, in our ambitions, in our actions. It is what we tell about life and our reality. It is what we tell about ourselves to ourselves and to others.

This workshop gives us the opportunity to tell our story from different points of view. This is a fascinating process of searching, which travels through images, words, flips over, divides, connects and plays with the different parts of our story – it makes us look at it from a new place and discover surprising insights.

Preregistration is required.

Location: Bay City Restaurant, Hanover, PA

Hanover Area Human Resource Association Meeting

Session Topic: Artfully Moving Mountains

Did you know there are tiny things called micro-inequities that can create BIG issues within your organization? They are subtle, typically unconscious and unintentional but have become known as the quiet discrimination. What do they do? They send messages of judgment without you even knowing. They also have the ability to pass these judgments on. And that? Creates a mountain of ill will and miscommunication.

In this eye-opening presentation, Samm shares the science behind these non-verbal queues that keep people disconnected. Micro-inequities are non-verbal conversations we have every day. By recognizing how these micro-inequities can manifest and increasing our awareness of our own, we can choose to make shifts that can transform these actions from disconnection to connection. From exclusionary to inclusive. From discriminatory to empowering.

Breakout Session Topic: The HRart of Engagement: The 5P’s to Authenticity

A quick Google search on employee engagement generates an easy 3,010,000 results. That’s three million possible answers on how to or why to engage employees. What if I told you these three million resources mean nothing without genuine authenticity. This authenticity must be present in your organization and must be lived by your employees. Most importantly, it must be present within you.

As HR Professionals, we quickly get caught up in the messiness of office politics and workplace drama. We are tasked with initiatives typically daunting in nature and force ourselves to tackle obstacles head on to make them happen in an effort to prove our value and justify our desired seat at the table. What if this struggle could be lessened with a new perspective on purpose, passion, people, possibility, and power. These are the 5 P’s that makeup HRart and HRart is the root of organizational engagement. In this session, come discover what your HRart is saying. You will learn to:

  • Explore the significance of exposing your personal Purpose, Passion, People, Possibility, and Power.
  • Discuss the connection between the 5P’s and your ability to build the necessary relationships within an organization to manifest a cultural change.
  • Identify who you are authentically, as an HR Practitioner, by creating your HRart statement of integrity.
