#HRSocialHour Twitter Chat: Conference Preparation!

We've all been the new kid at the conference. Everyone remembers their first, right? And how many of us had a huge group of friends to help us through that first conference? Probably not many of us. I'd been going to state conferences for a couple of years before I got the opportunity to attend …

Zen Your Work: #bookreview

I've written about this before, but at SHRM18, I had the opportunity to listen to and meet Dr Karlyn Borysenko. I pre-ordered her book and really enjoyed reading it!  Here's what resonated with me most: I am in control of my experience. Starting in a new position with a new company, I am more surprised …

SHRM was a whirlwind of information and connections! My favorite part this year was definitely all the connections I made. I did learn a little bit as well, but I do love the networking and getting that IRL hug (or side hug based on preference) [which honestly is weird for me because I'm not a …

#ZenYourWork #SHRM18

I've spent quite a bit of time at the #SmartStage this morning, very intentionally. I'm enjoying the 20 minute bursts of information/learning/fun.
