Speaker cancellation prompts Kansas chapter to deploy ‘Five Habits of Destructive HR Leaders’

Earlier this year, program organizers at the SHRM-affiliated Human Resource Management Network (HRMN) of Manhattan, Kan., experienced every program director's worst nightmare: a speaker cancellation just three days before the presentation was scheduled to take place. With more than 50 registrants expecting to attend a seminar on compensation strategy, chapter leaders were pressed to find an alternative program of equivalent value on short notice.
Providing powerful content and professional development credits (PDCs) to our chapter's approximately 100 members is of paramount importance. Fortunately, SHRM offers a series of all-in-one tools as part of its Competency-Based Education for Chapters. These "workshops-in-a-box" provide everything needed to present a valuable interactive program on the fly. Each kit includes a full-length video presentation (complete with instructions on when to pause for discussion!), PowerPoint slide deck, participant workbook and facilitator guide with helpful talking points.
As a substitute for our compensation seminar, the HRMN chapter programs team deployed the new SHRM workshop "Five Habits of Destructive HR Leaders" with great success.
"Five Habits" follows a new HR generalist as she attempts to collaborate with various leaders at her organization. Through those encounters, workshop participants observe the titular destructive habits. The program's Competency Spotlight focuses on Leadership & Navigation and HR Expertise. The full-length video is narrated by SHRM's senior vice president for Knowledge Development & Certification, Alex Alonso, Ph.D., SHRM-SCP.
This workshop is the first of many SHRM offerings designed to help local chapters cultivate and develop HR leaders in alignment with the SHRM Body of Competency and Knowledge and the SHRM certification programs.
Since our chapter programs are typically only an hour long, we provided a condensed version of the workshop, focusing on just three of the five habits, which allowed enough time after the presentation for participants to form groups and complete the exercises in the workbook. We kept the more than 50 attendees engaged throughout the program. There were great takeaways that participants could put into practice the same day as the workshop, as well as resources and recertification credits for SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP credential-holders. Several members even asked about using the workshop as training for the leaders in their organizations.
This workshop enabled our chapter to put on a successful program for our members at the last minute. Thanks, SHRM!
