Maine HR Convention 2013 Reflections


The theme for the 18th annual was Making a Difference. Each attendee should find her or his own subtext, a subtitle for their unique convention experience.

After a few false starts, my subtitle is Safety. More specifically emotional & physical safety. There are paths & themes that support this direction.

Cy Wakeman’s Reality based rules apply. Safety has to be real & drama free.

Senator George Mitchell worked five years in Ireland to bring about safety through the Good Friday Peace Accords.

Teen Truth’s message started me down this path to safety. A common thread through America’s mass murder school students has been disconnected students. Disconnected humans are lonely, alone and at risk first to themselves then others. A disconnected worker is an unsafe worker.

Safety requires emotional awareness, literacy & intelligence. The word that comes to mind is empathy.

Once again, it is time to walk further down this path.

What is your MEHRC2013 take away?
