    Compelling plans, magnetic ethics, and team thinking.

    Good leadership is not soft. In the words of successful CEO and investor, Joseph Otting: “The best way to protect and grow a business investment is a good leadership team.” What role can HR play in improving leadership teams?

    Together on November 30th, with a room full of talent and career driven professionals we embraced the idea that goodness pays and that leadership within HR is a combination of; compelling plans, magnetic ethics, and team thinking.

    Paul Batz, CEO and Founder of Good Leadership Enterprises, presented a data-driven approach to how HR Leaders can become an internal leadership team coach and consultant to increase the economic value of leadership. It starts with the basic idea that “goodness pays.” We had an opportunity to go through a self-assessment, an ROI calculation and a case study with real data.

    The energy was amazing, the conversation compelling, and we left feeling even better about leading with goodness.

    Thank you to all of our members and guests for supporting HR Executive Forum.

    Pam Borton, President & CEO of Borton Partners Presents to Record Attendance

    Author: Lisa Tollakson, SPHR, SHRM-SCP

    The October program at HR Executive Forum brought record attendance to a room full HR leaders on Wednesday, October 25th.

    "ON POINT" feedback has been key to Pam's success and the success of her teams over the years. She shared how her feedback has been real-time as the play is happening, not structured like the review process we are accustomed to.

    There was great table conversation, interaction, and even a exercise of high five's, fist bumps, and elbows to share how immediate and positive interaction can change the dynamics and energy. Give it a try the next time you walk by your team members.

    Members and guests were sure to walk away with new and renewed messaging on being great leaders. Some of the key topics and takeaways:

    • Real time feedback is the hottest, and most relevant, topic today

    • As a leader it's your responsibility to consistently boost confidence and productivity

    • How to build a culture of transparency and trust with your team

    • Getting the results you want with five generations in the workplace
