CAPHRA Spring Conference 2017

Thriving in Turbulent Times

 

 

 

CAPHRA’s spring conference will be held on Friday, May 19, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at PSECU Headquarters, in Harrisburg.   Photo ID required.  Free parking available.

 

Keynote Speaker:

 

Dr. Bing Ran, Professor of Public Administration, Penn State University

Keynote Address:  Thrive in Turbulent Times - Dynamic Interactions Between Self and Organizations

Dr. Bing Ran joins us as our keynote speaker to share his expertise on organizational change as it relates to Government employment. During this session we will discuss the nature and essence of the individual and the organization, how an individual navigates through the organizational maze, and how someone survives and thrives during this navigation.

  

We also have dynamic break-out sessions to grow and/or enhance your knowledge (Each participant selects two of the three):

 

  • “Coping with Stress in the Workplace,” led by Dr. Bing Ran

 Dr. Ran will lead a hands-on discussion on stressful work environments and how we can handle stress.  We will concentrate on Cognitive Dissonance and Psychological Capital as the key concepts and find out, collectively, how stressful work environments can be addressed by consonance, efficacy, resilience and optimism. You will leave the session with a deeper understanding and appreciation of your capacity development, positive leadership, and novel applications of psychological capital.


  • “Building Trust with Your Team,” led by Rick and Susan Stamm, Team Approach

Trust is the foundation of effective and enjoyable teamwork.  But trust is a complex process and needs constant attention.  In this session, the Stamms will explore vulnerability-based trust as proposed in Pat Lencioni’s blockbuster book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, and how a behavioral model such as DiSC can help you embrace that concept.  You will leave with a people-reading process to engage team members on the job as well as access to a personalized DiSC report to take the learning deeper.

  • “Partnering for LR Success,” led by Jay Gasdaska, Director of Labor Relations, PA Office of Administration, and Bill Corbett, Chief of Employee Relations, Dept. of Conservation and Natural Resources 


Mr. Gasdaska and Mr. Corbett join us to explore how you become a value-added partner to your Labor Relations Department.  The presenters will provide an overview of the COPA’s LR program, how LR intersects with the other functional areas of Human Resources (HR) and the synergies & challenges that exist in this relationship. Further, the presenters will discuss the LR challenges on the horizon and how such challenges could impact the workforce and Commonwealth HR in general.

Special guest, Mr. Kory Auch, Deputy Secretary, PA Office of Administration, will provide closing remarks
