Native Nation Events and Paradigm Shift present: Human Resources Leadership in the 21st Century

We need leaders. We need HR.

Human Resources (HR) is one of the most essential areas of responsibility within any organization. Yet, this department is often underrated and unrecognized as a major contributing voice within a team. This illustrates the need for focused leadership development among HR professionals. In the 21st Century, HR professionals must take a more proactive role to increase their influence among team members and key decision-makers. This is the essence of leadership and the emphasis of this conference. The industry has slowly understood the true significance of HR professionals. This event will equip HR professionals with the skills needed to take a larger “seat at the table” and lead us through the 21st century.

Targeted Outcomes:

  • Increase ability to direct and contribute to initiatives and processes within the organization.
  • Voice potential solutions to obstacles for the successful implementation of team agenda.
  • Demonstrate agility and understanding when leading organizational initiatives or when supporting initiatives.
  • Build greater support from internal and external stakeholders
  • Lead the organization through change with resilience and connectedness.
  • Promote collaboration among departments.
  • Develop skills in conflict resolution and internal negotiations.
