Two Fridays ago was the first HR Summit held by GHRA (the professional development committee) and I have to say, kudos to them. It was held in the Fawcett Center from noon to four and people from all of Fisher was invited (although it was mostly HR students) as well as HR professionals from around Columbus.
I know what you are thinking. And, believe me, I thought it too. For starters, my blog title is a bit cliche (and lame-o). But, if you can move past that, it's hard NOT to notice the signs of spring all around us: Birds chirping their brains out at 6am and prematurely waking me up; trees budding; tulips beginning to push up through the ground; grass turning green, consistent 50-60 degree weather and the lovely April rain showers that produce May flowers.
Last week, I was solely focused on anything that was mid-term exam & project-oriented. My tiny brain was inundated with meeting deadlines; reading...reading and...RE-reading Harvard Business Review case studies; agonizing over how to piece together several 2-15 page, 12-pt, Times New Roman, double-spaced, 1-inch margin explanation and recommendation papers; and, the COUP DE GRACE, cooking up ways to describe amazing broad topics such as competencies and balance scorecards.
