    Guest Speaker: Dr. Sherene McHenry

        Relational Leadership and Success Expert, Dr. Sherene McHenry works with organizations who want to decrease burnout and turnover, while enhancing effectiveness, increasing engagement and raising productivity.

    A keen observer of people and interactions, Sherene began offering relationship advice before she learned to drive. It’s little wonder she was motivated to earn a PhD in Counselor Education. She became a graduate professor and invested almost two decades empowering others to understand people and develop healthier relationships and happier lives.

    Throughout her career several things became crystal clear: 1.Turnover and disengagement can be greatly decreased. 2. When leadership is lacking, organizations and individuals suffer the consequences. As an international speaker who keynotes for academic, business and professional organizations, Sherene empowers, equips and inspires individuals and organizations to immediately begin to act and think differently.    

    Past president of the Michigan National Speakers Association and the author of Pick: Choose to Create a Life You Love, a monthly magazine column, and her Boost Your Leadership IQ blog, Sherene has been cited in numerous publications including Speaker Magazine and the Wall Street Journal.

    Authentic, quick-witted and highly engaging, Sherene provides clients with fresh perspectives and doable tactics to minimize miscommunications, decrease frustrations, and reduce burnout and turnovers. Consistently garnering rave reviews, Sherene creates customized programs that are fast paced, fun and packed with immediately usable information.

       Program Details:

     Would you like to develop greater influence within your organization? Few things will expedite that more than playing a significant role in strategic planning. While long-range strategic planning has often been limited to the C-Suite, HR Professionals should be included in the process, since PEOPLE are the key factor in whether or not the strategy becomes culture and leads to long-term success. This presentation will show you how you can effectively lead your team through the process, and contribute greatly to the outcome it produces. You’ll leave with a structure to help you guide the conversation and direct strategic efforts toward making vision and goals a part of your culture, ensuring that the final product isn’t just a binder on the shelf, but rather the WHY behind all that you do.

    Develop your ability to affect organizational change by participating in and leading the strategic planning process to focus organizational objectives on how to best utilize key talent and human capital to achieve long-term growth and profitability.

    Understand how to develop greater influence by cultivating relationships with managers/supervisors and even opinion leaders in lower level positions and all departments in order to establish a values-based culture that ensures team members buy into and are fully engaged in the achievement of the organization’s mission and vision.

    Learn how to instill a deep commitment to core values throughout your organization by maintaining a constant stream of communication that reinforces their importance, coaching and correcting to ensure they are adhered to, and making certain everyone in leadership consistently models that.

    Learn how to create defined, organization-wide expectations, and equip managers and supervisors to work together within a system of metrics to achieve strategic goals and produce measurable top line improvement.  

    Discover how redirecting your evaluation/appraisal process will develop key talent by focusing on how each individual’s performance directly contributes to organizational key objectives and will ultimately affect bottom line profitability.
