Global Talent Management: Strategy Lessons from Zappos

Global talent management uses best practices to identify talent and optimize performance in today’s workplace. Bottom line; it means people matter. This discussion presents the argument that traditional management practices are obsolete due to the speed of change and that the younger generation has truly different values. They are also generally better informed and respond differently to organizational cues. Examples from Tony Hisieh, CEO of Zappos, provide enlightening insights about addressing this, and his book, “Delivering Happiness”, clearly shows that a different value proposition is required for this generation.

Choosing Civility in the Workplace

Civility in the workplace is often not a priority in the high-speed, high-tech world we now live and work in. Choosing civility, however, is a skill of emotionally intelligent people that positively impacts both performance and productivity in the workplace. Not only is civility part of a social construct that fosters good relations among workers; it is absolutely necessary to the continued growth and prosperity of organizations.

Ethical Leadership in Human Resources

HR leaders must straddle the needs of both management and employee constituents, and in a tough economy a well-developed internal ethical compass is much needed. HR leaders who are well versed in law, strategy, and ethical leadership can provide a guide post and sound advice. But In order to maximize professional and personal effectiveness as an ethical leader, it is also necessary to dig deep within and find our own moral compass. This talk provides a working knowledge of ethical leadership and its possible influences in order to assess our moral compass and modify our direction when necessary.

Moving Towards Inclusion

Kelly’s body of work and extensive research have led to the conclusion that a strong relationship exists between competencies in the Emotional Intelligence spectrum, HR initiatives of Diversity & Inclusion, and culture in successful organizations. She examines why so many Diversity & Inclusion initiatives fail, and shows through the development of EI skills, how we can create an Inclusive environment; enabling every person to feel welcome, respected, supported and valued as a part of the organization. In order for a company to achieve its business goals, we must be able to recognize and leverage the talent within our organizations, then create an empowering culture that allows people to do their best work.
