Running With the Big Dogs - Are you tired of working really hard and being seen as a "necessary evil" within your organization?  Margaret Morford identifies six crucial areas which HR professionals need to impact to be seen as contributors (and not just as administrators), and offers numerous suggestions for how to transform HR's role within your organization.  Identify the top mistakes that chip away at HR professionals’ credibility and understand how your current behavior might be eroding your effectiveness.  Margaret will share numerous unsettling questions all HR professionals must ask themselves in order to gain respect from the senior level executives.   All of this is interspersed with funny - and not so funny - real life stories and examples from Margaret's career and the careers of other HR "Big Dogs."
