Wendy Sellers (She/Her) is known as “The HR Lady ®”. As an HR consultant and a business and management consultant, she is an involved business partner who understands your current culture and desired culture then helps you build HR policy, employee trainings, and management workshops around your unique environment and goals. Wendy is authentic and transparent - above all, she keeps it real - and there is never any sugar coating or a hidden agenda. The HR Lady ® is Realistic, Honest, and Reliable, and is your HR helpline.
The needs of business today have changed. Negative or simply careless HR/ management practices foster fear and encourage a reputation that the company doesn't care about people. Even if the main priority is the bottom line (and let's face it, it is), leadership needs to understand that environments and relationships where people feel respected, valued, and trusted is what actually drives the bottom line (into the red or green). Company culture refers to the attitudes and behaviors of a company and its employees. These attitudes and behaviors should be consistently full of "respect, value, and trust".

Wendy is an engaging and relatable speaker! She presented to an audience of over 100 attendees at our annual seminar this year. She knocked it out of the park! She conveyed her message in a clear, concise and, often humorous manner. We were lucky to have her and look forward to inviting her again in the future. It's obvious what her passion is...she's truly the "HR Lady."

It’s my absolute pleasure to recommend Wendy Sellers. Her knowledge of HR and expertise in team and Operational advisory development was a huge advantage to our entire office. Wendy always manages to foster positive discussions and bring the best out of others. I am looking forward to more projects with Wendy.
Wendy has been a great help to me and my management team. She is extremely professional and knows how to obtain results. She introduced several practices to establish optimal results in staffing, training and mentoring employees.
Wendy helped redefine our interview/hiring process, employee review & evaluation process, organized benefit committees, corporate HR events, and was open and honest in all our discussions and interactions. Through our time together, we only had one major employee issue that I can recall. She handled the situation with extreme professionalism and ensured the company followed the correct procedures to manage the company’s risk, while serving the employees’ rights.
Wendy brings a level of passion and professionalism that companies seek out and enjoy working with. She’s top notch with her work ethic and was a pleasure to work with for many years.
I have another colleague that may be in need of your services to help him hire employees for his practice; He's a physician not a dentist like me. He's looking to hire somebody soon and I told him how great you are. We both agree that hiring is an art and neither of us are good at it. That is why we need you.
Wendy is awesome and tailored training to our needs. We have a great deal of trust with her. - Human Resources, Rosen Hotels & Resorts
Amazon Review: A great book for anyone in the workforce who is looking to become a more effective leader. The author offers useful advice to become a better communicator, sharing her own personal experiences on how she became better at getting her message through to employees and motivating others to get the job done. This book provides practical information for leaders to get employees more engaged in the company's mission by properly communicating, and not just with words. The lessons here are critical for anyone in a leadership role, as mistakes can tarnish a company's entire reputation, making it more difficult to attract and retain the right employees. - Lisa B
If you haven’t seen Wendy Sellers speak yet you don’t know what you are missing! She is an excellent speaker. I always learn something valuable to my business or my personal self! Wendy is a true inspiration, I try to catch her events every chance I get. - Cheryl
I loved the book! On the topic of human behavior & communication, Suck it up Buttercup nails it! Wendy points out the most commonly overlooked flaws people make. She gives examples I know I was able to relate to (many were similar to experiences I’ve had) and points out where most mistakes were made. She also gives great examples of how interactions should have gone to get better results. -Chris W
The leadership concepts in the book “Suck It Up, Buttercup” really resonated with me as a fast -paced, direct leader myself. The manner which Wendy Sellers delivers these leadership concepts are so simple that I had to kick myself for not making these realizations before. I bought a copy for each of my managers to read and discuss. Our overall company-wide productivity has already increased. - Vincent E
Wendy is a true inspiration and leader. Her book has opened my eyes in more ways than one. After receiving her book only weeks ago, I have already implemented ways to become a better leader. I have learned to drop my guard aka "pride" allowing my employees to be more open and willing to share. I have also increased my clientele tremendously with some of the tools she has shared. Wendy, I, my team and clients truly thank you! Her book has opened my eyes in more ways than one. After receiving her book only weeks ago, I have already implemented ways to become a better leader.
