Some leading edge human resource professionals are true business partners to their CEOs and to their Board of Directors. However, in many cases, the HR department is not looked upon to initiate strategy and serve as true business partners. During this continual time of change, HR professionals have a great opportunity to change this perception by aligning their responsibilities with the overall mission of the organization, demonstrating their strategic value and becoming leaders of change and employee engagement. During this session we will discuss:


  • The perception vs. the reality of the HR role today
  • Dealing with “deadwood” in the workplace
  • Changing the mind set in your C-suite to drive positive results
  • Proven success tips that can be used right away


Our speaker, Marsha Haygood is an Empowerment coach, Leadership Strategist and Motivational Speaker who founded her consulting company, StepWise Associates 10 years ago after leaving her corporate position as Executive Vice President of Human Resources and Administration for New Line Cinema, a division of Times Warner.
