    On May 10th, 2019, the Fox Valley Society of Human Resource Management (FVSHRM) will again be bringing Leadercast Live to the leaders within Fox Cities.  We'll be hosting Leadercast at a new location this year - D.J. Bordini Center on the Fox Valley Technical College campus.

    What is Leadercast Live?

    Leadercast Live is the largest one-day leadership event in the world. Broadcast live each year from Atlanta to hundreds of Host Sites around the world, Leadercast Live assembles globally respected leadership experts on one stage to share knowledge and insights from their leadership journeys.  

    Leadercast Live dives into leadership issues relevant to today's leaders to provide solutions and inspiration to help attendees around the globe be better leaders.  By bringing together top leadership experts with worldly perspectives, Leadercast provides leaders everywhere with the knowledge and tools to be leaders worth following.

    The theme of Leadercast 2019 is: Leading Healthy Teams
      
    What defines a team's success? Is it based solely on achievement, or is there more to the story?  The best leaders know a successful team is made when focus, care, attention and development is directed to its members.  Healthy teams yield fulfilled employees, effective collaboration, high organizational engagement and greater long-term success.  In 2019, Leadercast Live will bring experts in organizational health to help attendees master the art and science of developing and leading healthy teams.
      
    Leadercast Live will allow attendees and viewers to improve their own personal leadership journey with tips for self-evaluation and self-growth. Among the leadership experts speaking this year are:

    • Gayle King - Co-Host, CBS This Morning & Editor-at-Large, O, the Oprah Magazine
    • Patrick Lencioni -Founder, The Table Group

    The unfortunate truth is the use of illicit drugs continues to be a persistent, growing problem in Wisconsin communities. What do I, as owner, CEO or HR leader, do to protect my company?This widespread epidemic is in your workplace – no business type or profession is immune. Many employers think their policy is enough to protect their business – think again. Employers need to address this problem head-on, especially given the new federal regulations and state actions legalizing marijuana which has complicated the issue and rendered some of the old accepted policies and procedures obsolete. This program will address:
    •the scope of the drug problem, the many ways it can impact your organization; and identifying some of the signs associated with drug use;
    •the impact of new laws and recommended policies and procedures in their wake; and
    •the strategies employers can legally implement to effectively manage the risks associated with drug abuse in today’s environment.

    SPEAKER INFORMATION

    Duh, It Doesn’t Have to Be Crazy at Work

    Matt Shefchik, Strategy & Engagement practice leader at the QTI Group, will share perspectives from the acclaimed book, It Doesn’t Have to be Crazy at Work, by Fried and Hansson. As an HR professional, we play a vital role in the culture and operations of our organization. We can either act as a bystander and let the chaos of work consume us and our organizations, or lead our teams down a more engaged and productive path. Matt will dissect the 5 major sections of the book, and lead a group discussion on insights for your workplace. Learning objectives include:

    • HR’s responsibility to mental and physical well-being in a chaotic environment
    • Creating a calm culture in your workplace
    • Curb your ambition
    • Defend your time
    • Feed your culture
    • Dissect your processes
    • Mind your business
    • Personal impacts to productivity

    “The authors’ message is a bold, iconoclastic strategy for creating the ideal company culture—what they call "the calm company." Their approach directly attack the chaos, anxiety, and stress that plagues millions of workplaces and hampers billions of workers every day….It isn’t a book telling you what to do. It’s a book showing you what they’ve done—and how any manager or executive no matter the industry or size of the company, can do it too.” – Harper Collins

    A complimentary copy of the book, It Doesn’t Have to be Crazy at Work, is available to attendees. “Their book is funny, well-written and iconoclastic and by far the best thing on management published this year.” - The Economist
