Rick Maher to Present at HPMA: Princeton SHRM affiliate to explore “Building Resilience”

Posted Dec 12, 2022 by Rick

Adaptive Human Capital’s President & CEO, Richard (“Rick”) Maher will be presenting tomorrow at the Princeton Human Resource Management Associate (HRMA), an affiliate of SHRM. This marks another in multiple SHRM chapters to have him as a guest.

“The Building Your Change Resilience” session explores the characteristics of resilient individuals and agile organizations and lays out a roadmap for leaders to begin to curate a culture of resilience in the workplace. This high-impact workshop is designed for employees at all levels and builds awareness of their individual change response. The session features proprietary research of the characteristics of both individual and organizational resilience and includes tools to help participants gain new insight on their tendencies in dealing with change and uncertainty. Finally, we’ll explore the Six Traits of Agile Organizations and the leader’s role in curating a culture that better supports employee resilience through change.

“Let’s face it,” says Maher, “we are living through a terribly disruptive time. I’ll call it an Age of Disruption. People are stressed, anxious and feeling “stuck” waiting for normal to return, but, of course, it won’t. We’re not going back to normal, so we better figure out how to manage change more effectively.”

Designed to help people understand the traits of resilience during times of stress and uncertainty, the session will also provide participants new insights into their own change tendencies – help them better understand how they tend to respond to disruption and change. Each participant will be offered a FREE COUPON to experience our Individual Resilience AssessmentÓ following the session.

“I want to give something back. While my remarks will be focused on leading organizational change – on creating more nimble cultures as a leader – leaders need to be able to lead themselves before they can lead others, so the offer of our resilience assessment will let folks better understand their areas of strength and areas for professional development,” continued Maher.
