Building Leadership Development From Scratch and Early Morning Sessions?

Last week I had the pleasure of presenting at the Ohio HR conference which had a record of over 700 attendees.

tumblr kyznp5UZJv1qajnw8o1 400 Building Leadership Development From Scratch and Early Morning Sessions?

I was also fortunate or less fortunate to perform the daunting task of delivering this presentation on Friday morning which began at 7:15am. Keep in mind that:

  1. it was a 7:15 am session
  2. the conference attendees had been there for 2 days
  3. they probably came to the session from two nights of good times!
  4. this was an early bird session on Friday
  5. this was the final day of presentations
  6. it competed against sessions on FMLA and I-9 (yeah me!)
  7. can I stress that it was at 7:15 am

Despite the early morning there were probably around 150 people in the session if I estimate correctly. I think it was because of the Anthony Hamilton music I played. *shoulder shrug.* The topic of this was Building a Leadership Development Program from Scratch. Without further adieu here are the slides from that session. If you would like to have a downloaded version please subscribe to the blog and then contact me and I would be happy to send you the notes!

 

Now how do you approach and build your own Leadership and Training efforts?

The description from the program pamphlet: “Leadership is a concept that has been discussed for years. It has moved from being a simple term and ideology to active growth and building operational capability in the practices of individuals becoming leaders. Pressure to build leadership from front-line employees to the executive suite is on. However, the question remains “We need leaders but what should you think about when creating a program to develop them?


ASTD International Conference: Must Attend Sessions!

So in less than 12 hours I will be heading out to Orlando, FL for the ASTD International Conference. I am looking forward to all the sessions as well as being a Press Blogger for the event. With my press pass I will actually have a lot of options as well as VIP access to speakers and behind the scenes conversations. I will actually be interviewing a few of the main headliners as well. So as long as I get a good connection and I feel like getting everything down, be looking out here for day by day opinions and information about and around the conference and its events.

Be sure to head on out to the ASTD Tweetup that will also be held on Monday, May 23 at Bahama Breeze and is a come as you are, BYOB (Buy your own beer) event icon wink ASTD International Conference: Must Attend Sessions! – This event is sponsored by Interactyx Limited and we will be raffling off an iPad2. So if you haven’t done so already RSVP here and follow the #ASTDtweetup and #ASTD2011

Healthy Travel: Fitness Program For The Corporate Road Warrior

Well everyone it is beginning to get warm out. The rain is bringing taller grass as a result of all of us travelling more and more for work and conference season. With that, I like to work out at least 3 to 4 days a week. Between swimming and weights, I don’t like to stay a way from the gym to long. But, like many, the travel makes it harder and harder for any of us to even get to a gym much less go mall walking around the hotel parking lot. So to help you all get fit even when you are travelling is my friend and work place fitness guru Danielle Korb.

 Healthy Travel: Fitness Program For The Corporate Road Warrior

Danielle Korb

 

Exercise while travelling

You want to stay healthy while you travel with an exercise routine that is fun, simple, challenging, & effective…… you are a Fit Traveler! Here are 3 exercise routines to help you stay in shape and burn calories while you are on the road.

Exercise while traveling presents it’s challenges with new gyms & equipment, no gym, and limited time. With fitness on the road I have designed 3 exercise plans that help you burn a lot of calories, work in the gym/outside/in a hotel room, & are full of effective exercises that optimize your time.

Monitor your heart rate

Monitoring your heart rate while you workout can help you keep the workout more of a fun challenge while burning more calories at the same time. When you do each exercise your target heart rate should be 85% of your maximum heart rate. Your Maximum heart rate is 220 minus your age. If you are 30 years old: 220 – 30 = 190 beats per minute. Your Target heart rate of 85% of your 190 Maximum Heart Rate is 161 beats per minute. You can measure your heart rate after an exercise by taking your pulse for 10 seconds and multiplying by 6.

If you travel a lot you may want to consider investing in a heart rate monitor or a wrist heart rate monitor. These are great because they act like a little personal trainer. They remind you to keep your workout intense and they keep you reaching to your 85% target heart rate goal for the entire workout.

Exercise Program
Preform each exercise for 30 seconds & rest for 15 seconds between each exercise. Do the routine 5 times through for a 20 minute workout. For these workouts I’m your online personal trainer with links to videos of me demonstrating how to do some of the exercises. Have Fun with your Fitness….Go Fit Traveler!

Corporate Travel and HR Conferences on @DriveThruHR

This week I begin some more travel for work which will take me to Atlanta. In the near future I will be in Dallas, Phoenix, Orlando, Philadelphia, etc. etc. While in Atlanta, after I am finished with work, I will take a break to join a number of others at HRevolution. You can follow the event via Twitter at #HRevolution.

On April 15 I was once again a guest on DriveThruHR, a show that takes place Monday through Friday from 1pm – 1:30 EST, discussing anything related to the Human Resources industry. Since I will be traveling so much in the next few months that is the subject we mainly discussed. Listen in and enjoy.
