    The future of Human Resources will be built on Leadership. Are you a builder?

    The HR leadership, more than any other function in your organization, is in a critical position to have and to maintain a lasting significant impact on your company. Raise your personal performance bar and become an exceptional business professional who works in HR!

    The road to becoming an exceptional leader in HR requires hard work, but it can be  traveled more easily by following a plan. One of the ongoing challenges all leaders face is how to elevate their level of performance. During this “hands on” practical presentation, attendees will first review the HR Business Expertise Categories and the desired behaviors that fall under each of these five categories.  We will discuss which habits need to be changed and which skills need to be sharpened and how, in order to elevate their performance as a leader, and learn to be the master of their professional circumstances.

    The goal is to help you start to build your own plan, and identify specific actions you as an HR professional can take to position yourself to take a broader role within your company, either in HR or in another operating area.

    Our speaker:

    Chris Ruisi is a no-nonsense, decisive, respected and effective business leader perfectly suited to challenge HR leaders to Step Up and Play Big! Chris began his business career as an HR recruiter and worked his way through HR into senior operational positions, eventually to become the President & COO/CEO of his company—an NYSE listed company with over $2 billion in annual revenue. Chris not only found his “seat at the table”, but re-built the “table” and earned the seat at the head of it! Who better than him to help today’s HR professionals become leaders within their companies?

    Drawing on his 35+ years as a senior-level executive on the corporate front lines, Chris knows how to help people to discover and their full capabilities. Chris combines his detailed insights and real life experiences to create informative, humorous, inspiring and entertaining programs designed to improve the performance and contributions of today’s HR professional. There’s no fluff in Chris’ presentations. He deals with practical, make-sense solutions that work. He has been acknowledged as the kind of leader who has the unique ability to drive individuals to top performance levels.
