Time: 8am – 10am PT

During this interactive and humorous session, Keri and Kelly will outline CHARGE (Courage, Humility, Accuracy, Resiliency, Goal-oriented, and Exemplary), which reviews the qualities needed to become an HR Warrior. Most importantly, and what is near to Keri’s heart, is discussing actions that the participants can take to become an HR Warrior team. As without action nothing is accomplished. Each participant should leave feeling inspired to be an HR Warrior and have concrete steps on how to accomplish it!

Learning objectives include:
