HR IN THE DIGITAL AGE : TRANSFORMATION AND REINVENTION
The digital transformation of companies continues to present its share of challenges and opportunities for human resources—to which must be added the many consequences of the international pandemic. To reap the dividends, the digitalization of organizations requires more than the contribution of new technologies: it first and foremost requires new ways of working and collaborating, centered on experience, analytics and agility. For the HR function, this involves examining the expectations and contributions of the various stakeholders – candidate, employee, manager and the various HR professionals – and exploring new possibilities offered by cloud computing technologies, artificial intelligence and automation.
FROM A (CADEMY) TO B (USINESS) - WITHOUT SELLING YOUR SOUL
I always thought that I would teach philosophy at university after my doctorate. More naive and younger, I thought that if you study, work hard, and apply for a few college jobs, you'll eventually get one. As it turned out, the reality was a little more complex, and I ended up moving from academia to business. Reflecting on my lessons learned over the years, I would like to share with you some tips on how to make this transition successful.
LEAD WITHOUT THE TITLE
How do you navigate that uncomfortable zone between individual contributor and leader (and/or manager)? How to prepare without formal responsibilities and title? Drawing on personal experience and research on engagement and collaboration I share my advice on how to think and act like a leader and how to channel 3 leadership archetypes - the doctor, the priest and the general. Leadership only exists if other people follow us - in thought, in emotion and in action.
