The HR Lady Vision: To help leaders create successful companies which employees do not want to desperately want a vacation from.
Wendy Sellers is an HR expert, consultant and speaker who focuses on being relatable without overcomplicating things. She has many topics for interactive, facilitated workshops focused on management training, leadership development and corporate culture - and will work with you to customize your meeting.
As a realistic, witty and energetic consultant, trainer or event speaker, Wendy is authentic and transparent - above all, she keeps it real. She is honest, loyal and direct - there is never any sugar coating! Two of the most popular for conferences are 3 Things Leaders Should Know AND 5 Ways Our Employees Drive Us Crazy.
Three Things Leaders Should Know
(1) Your personality annoys us
(2) Common sense isn't common and
(3) You suck at communicating
This humorous session is about reflecting as a professional and asking the question: "Am I part of the problem?" Employees, managers, and leaders will come out of these events with a new perspective to change their workplace behaviors and actions immediately.
Participants will learn about the 4 personality styles using the DiSC model and how the differences can cause (and resolve) interpersonal conflict. We will dive into the fact that common sense is actually a set of skills learned by a common group of people and why it is imperative to take away judgment and offer to teach the skills that are lacking. And finally, the concept of active listening through distractions will be spotlighted through a short group activity. (Her leadership book, "Suck It Up, Buttercup" goes a few steps further on this topic.)
Five Ways Our Employees Drive Us Crazy and What To Do About It!
(1) They don't listen
(2) They make so many mistakes
(3) They have no common sense
(4) They have an entitlement mentality
(5) They just don't care
This is also a humorous session about reflecting as a manager or leader. We will review each point and analyze WHY employees do things to drive us crazy. Hint: It is most likely their manager using ineffective strategies of (1) clear two way communication, (2) training and development methods, (3) making assumptions about their skills, (4) forgetting that it is 2019 not 1990 and (5) not engaging employees effectively.
Relate. Advise. Lead.

"You might be part of the problem" - The HR Lady
According to a survey of 23,000 employees conducted by Harris Interactive, only 37% of employees actually understood what their employer was trying to achieve.
How can you fix this? Talk about the Vision often – have it on meeting agendas and email signatures. Talk about it in performance meetings. Discuss it interviews. Use it as reasons to tell employees yes or in some cases - no.
Can your organization describe your company vision in one sentence?
