SHRM NorCal: Elevate HR for Today & Tomorrow

Speakers Robert Goldmann and Steve McElfresh to discuss new approaches for helping employees change disruptive behavior based on Neuroscience Research, at the Annual SHRM Northern California Symposium (Oct. 2-3), Elevate HR For Today & Tomorrow
By: Robert Goldmann
MILLBRAE, Calif. - Oct. 1, 2019 - PRLog -- At least 37% of employees experience or witness bullying (WBI US), and over 40% of women report being harassed at work (Quinnipiac). HRBPs are often tasked to deal with such behavior, as well as a wide array of other undesirable destructive behaviors like insensitivity, inhibition and self-censoring, and procrastination. Too often managers -- and sometimes HRBPs -- respond to counterproductive behavior with threats, moral judgments, or avoidance. Such responses are usually ineffectual and result in unnecessary tension, lost productivity, and avoidable exits.

In this presentation, attendees will:

• Discover the neurological foundation of inappropriate and unproductive workplace behavior
• Acquire tools to help troublesome employees evaluate and enhance their motivation to improve
• Learn new approaches to workplace behavioral interventions that are more effective (and less stressful!)
• Acquire resources to teach others to make use of these tools

"This is not about changing people. It's about teaching people to be more effective at changing disruptive and other regrettable behaviors."
