So the shuttle failed me today. I was on my way to a session from my buckhead and my shuttle took an hour to get there and to the conference.
Never fear. In the spirit of my last post I loved the one I was with. I met a lady at the “bus stop” named Colleen Wright, Director of HR for Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. She is a trench HR pro who I struck up a conversation with: about the heat, about the size of the conference, and naturally about HR.
Here is what was great about the conversation. She was a trench HR pro, out of the blogger circles, out of the fringe HR spin. And she got it. A trench HR pro, educating ME on the virtues of authentic, engaging HR. It’s importance, its relevance, etc.
Why is this newsworthy. Because maybe… just maybe the word is getting out. I loved it.
I know this is a small post. But mighty.
