Topic:  Energize Passion and Performance

Approved for 1.25 SHRM PDC's, & HRCI credits

Energize yourself. As an HR professional, you need to be the best of who you are. You’ll learn to “prime” your brain to get your brain chemistry on your side. Use Energize to be the best role model you can for others. Change the old limiting stories playing in your head, to “inner movies” that help you bring your best to your situations, whether it be confidence to manage up, building rapport to guide others in other departments, or managing employees.  Rewrite your “inner autobiography” to broaden your horizons and be a true business partner to your organization.  Learn to tap into your inner “Artist” to bring your passion to work, creativity to challenges, and energize the people you support.

LegalShield Business Solutions offers timely and affordable legal and consumer identity theft plans nationwide to employee groups in the United States and Canada as a voluntary benefit.   

LegalShield provides access to attorneys who are experienced in the areas of law that most impact them without having to worry about high hourly rates. Unlike other legal plans or do-it-yourself websites, LegalShield has dedicated law firms in 49 states and four provinces in Canada that members can call for help, with their attorneys having, on average, 15+ years of experience.

IDShield provides comprehensive monitoring and restoration for the entire family for the cost most competitors charge to cover one individual with an incomplete service, with single pricing also available. In addition, value added vendor discounts included with membership can potentially save employees more than the cost of their benefits and are also quite popular.

Julie Gershon is President of Unique Benefits Group, Inc. and an Employee Benefits Specialist with LegalShield and IDShield (independent associate).  Along with these benefits, she also provides educational Identity Theft Awareness Seminars and Will Workshops for employees.

Ms. Gershon is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate with a B.A. in Legal Studies and a Minor in Criminal Justice Studies from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. She has worked in the legal industry for over 20 years. She can be reached at 978-658-4235 (direct) or 800-320-3220. E-mail: Websites: and
