I’m back in NY. There is still snow on the ground and it is cold, but I’m not too worried about it. My focus is on what is next. My book proposal is now in play, with publishers checking the journey out.
What is in the here and now are two talks, one tomorrow and one next Thursday. Tomorrow I’ll be speaking to members of the Rochester Business Alliance (the city’s version of the Chamber). From what I’m told the group will be predominantly HR professionals. I love passing on the stories of the individual motivation I have experienced, but in this case, the focus is on sharing how companies have harnessed the power of their people. Because workers are not robots, it takes certain ideas and environments to motivate. When a company can do that, their results will flourish.
While I was in Phoenix I received an email with a request to be the keynote at the Rochester, NY based Society for Human Resource Management 2007 Executive of the Year Luncheon. I of course said yes. This is a great opportunity to share why I think the HR community is vital in the growth and success of business.
The weather today is sunny but cold, but I am not seeing much of it. I’m inside thinking, creating power points, and rehearsing. More to come…
