Connecting to Lead in an HR World
Wednesday, June 12, 2013 | 5:00pm - 7:30pm | Atlanta Marriott Century Center
In HR it’s all about our people, right? Then why is it that we often feel disconnected from some of the very people we lead? Our speaker Jackie Martin will reveal the importance of forging strong connections on our teams and explain why relationship building and connecting should be a priority. She’ll help us define what a strong connection looks/feels like and show us how to build rapport with those we feel disconnected from. As a John Maxwell leadership trainer, Jackie will share simple, practical steps that we can practice daily to turn rapport into trusting, caring bonds. Those connections and bonds build influence with those in our departments and anyone else in our lives. That ability to influence others thus measures our ability to lead. You see, it’s all connected!
