    Dear SHRM Members and Guests:

    Please join us for an interactive Leadership and Strategic presentation with guest presenter
    Mike Cook 

    AMJ Group, Management Development

    Program Overview:  This program offering is titled--

    "Who Do You Want to Be Now as an HR Professional: Answering the Strategic Value Question"


    Achieving the technical/professional competence to function successfully as an HR professional in the world of today is an absolute must. Spending too much time and energy on those very same competencies can undervalue the contribution HR needs to be making. Distinguishing what an organization truly needs to bring to the executive table beyond basic HR competence is the key to being asked to sit at the executive table. This session will outline the necessary focus of activities, based on recent research, and identify the steps to making the changes required.
