    TOPIC: Narcissism in the Workplace

    The workplace of today is full of interpersonal dynamics that can be highly rewarding and at times, very challenging or worse, damaging.

    One of the most difficult workplace behaviors to contend with is Narcissism.  At the very least it can be confusing.  At the very worse, it can feel threatening and can negatively impact your organization in obvious and less-than-obvious ways.  

    The term Narcissism is used very often however few people have been trained to fully understand what the behavior is, what the implications for it are and what are some techniques one can use in dealing with this challenging behavior.  

    This workshop will be co-taught by an author & clinical psychologist of two books on Narcissism and a Leadership expert. Together they will present a framework to help understanding and effectively react to this frequently occurring workplace behavior.

    Specific development goals will be encouraged for each attendee to include in his/her Individual Development Plan.

    TOPIC: Thriving in an HR Department of One.... or More

    In many small and midsize companies, the human resources department consists of one person, aka “The Department of One” (DOO).  As such, they handle every HR function for the entire organization including recruiting, onboarding, training, compensation, benefits, employee relations, compliance, technology, analytics and strategy—and are frequently responsible for other business processes at the same time.  

    Join us for an informative program about how to thrive in an HR Department of One where will discuss the following:

           Changing how companies view HR

           Understand what the “C” Suite/Management want

           Building credibility

           Solo HR challenges and suggestions

           Taking HR to the next level

           Action Plan for HR Department of One

    Tools, Tips, Techniques & Resources
