    We're excited to welcome guest speaker Susan Ways, the President and founder of Inspired Success Coaching is an author, transformational change coach, leadership development expert and inspirational speaker focused on teaching people to embrace their authentic self and understanding how to weave that into their style to help achieve their maximum potential.  She will talk to us about - Pow-HR-Ful (powerful): Empowering Human Resource professionals to be seen as a valuable business partner who deserves a seat at the Executive table.

    About the Program:

    Pow-HR-Ful (powerful) will focus on what frustrates CEO's about HR and how HR professionals can overcome these to build a strong relationship with the Executive team, gain credibility in their role and transform the HR function within their organization. Participants will walk away with:

    - 7 key areas that frustrate the CEO
    - Practical tips to overcome those points of frustration
    - Understanding of key players in an organization and how to build relationships with them
    - The real role of HR as a strategic business player and how to align yourself with that role

    The program will provide insight to the dynamics of the C Suite and allow participants to use those insights to build relationships. This will assist them in transcending the barrier of being a transactional HR tactician to presenting themselves as a Strategic Business Partner. This will increase their span of control and introduce them to the inner workings of the Executive world.
