  • HR meeting: Mindfulness and Balance for HR and Leadership - September 12, 2018

    Date: September 12, 2018

    Cost: $50.50

    Location: Four Seasons Hotel

    Overview:

    Working in human resources or any leadership capacity, we are oftentimes responsible for leading and supporting people through challenging circumstances and transitions whether that is in their personal or work life.  In order to be able to hold space in this way, those of us in leadership positions need to embody resilience and have good self-care practices so we can be grounded and present when supporting others.  Further, as leaders, people look to us as an example of demonstrating good work / life balance practices and maintaining optimism and groundedness in an increasingly hectic world of work.  Self-care and mindfulness is an important topic for everyone these days, but particularly for human resources and other leaders!

    Speaker

    Location: Four Seasons Hotel

    Overview:

    As the year draws to a close, we are reaching out to our colleagues to see if anyone is interested in chairing and/or co-chairing the Facilities group starting in 2019. While we have really enjoyed our time in these roles, we both agree that some new fresh ideas to vitalize the group could be a great thing for the members. Please email me if you would like to nominate someone or if you would like to be added to the ballot. Of course you may contact us at any time if you have questions about what being a chair is all about – we would be happy to speak with any of you about the responsibilities.

    Starting in 2019, we will also be putting forward a vote to moving to only 4 meetings a year. With all the subsections opening up their topics to others, there is a great variety of learning opportunities for everyone to attend.

    Our September meeting will be to round table ideas for the next year, and to put out the ballots for the two above items. Please ensure you send me any chair nominations as soon as possible. We will run the vote using survey monkey, so that even those who aren’t able to attend September’s meeting will have a chance to vote. The results will be revealed in early October.
