Michiana SHRM Chapter is excited to announce its first annual Leadership Summit!  This half day summit is geared towards managers, supervisors, and leaders throughout the community who are interested in learning more about taking a different approach to becoming a more effective leader in today’s challenging market for talent. 

Introducing our Keynote Speakers

Alex Dorr - Reality Based Leadership

Reality-Based Leadership™: Ditch the Drama, Restore Sanity to the Workplace and Turn Excuses into Results These are challenging times in our businesses today. In leadership, we must become willing to admit that the ways in which we have taught leaders to lead over the years is simply not working. These times are calling for a new type of leader, one who can bring peace, sanity, and results back to the workplace with less drama! In this session, Alex rocks audiences as he teaches the key principles of her new wave of Reality-Based Leadership™.  If you love Cy Wakeman, you won't want to miss Alex's presentation as he applies the same key concepts with his own personal experiences.

Elizabeth Dillon - Millenial Misconceptions

"Millennial Misconceptions: Applying Change Management Theories to Create Employee Buy-In was created out of my passion for HR and people.  

I wanted to provide valuable insight and revolutionize the way that we see problems and provide solutions."


John Ferguson - Lippert Components Dream Manager

“Producing People”. Are you more focused on production than your people? The workplace is changing and there is a high demand for talent out there. However, people are leaving jobs due to disengagement and their direct leader. They aren’t quitting the company they are quitting the leader. Are you the type of leader who people follow or quit? The challenge for every leader is to develop an engaging leadership that effectively engages a disengaged world, workforce and person. Your mindset about your people matters. Developing a producing people mindset focuses on the personal, professional development of your people. In return, you enhance employee engagement, personal performance and make a profit through a producing people mindset.
