    We all recognize that communicating well is a key skill to being a successful leader – especially in HR. In this session, get the real scoop on how likeability and authenticity have helped two local media icons truly be seen and heard, and how those aspects of communicating apply to you as a leader.  Imagine this: if what you wrote at work and say in meetings were televised each weekday for all to see, would you be perceived as an effective communicator? 


    This program will feature KARE 11's:     

    Rena Sarigianopoulos is a reporter and anchor at KARE 11. She has won regional Emmys as well as a National Edward R. Murrow Award for hard news reporting in 2012.

    Rena came to KARE in 2005 after spending several years anchoring and reporting at WITI in Milwaukee. She has also worked at WKOW in Madison, Wisconsin and Fox40 Dubuque, Iowa.


    Jana Shortal is a reporter and co-anchor of Breaking the News on KARE 11.

    Jana began reporting for KARE in December of 2003, just in time for the temperatures to fall below her idea of freezing. Before coming to KARE she worked at Fox4 in Kansas City and KRCG in Jefferson City.

    Human Centered Design  (HCD) is a problem solving  that starts with understanding the needs of the people you are designing for. HCD focuses both on empathy and creativity and  uses a set of tools to guide you through inspiration, ideation, and implementation.  As HR leaders  we design and deploy the organization’s people strategies, but our approach doesn’t always meet the needs of our end users. Join us to learn how HCD can help you design proceses and products from a new perspective.

    A Design Sprint is a time-constrained, human-centered, collaborative design effort. Through her own version of a Design Sprint, Jackie helps teams create the conditions to co-create future solutions and has worked with teams to solve a wide range of problems.

    She’s led workshops with:

    Empirical research has shown that unconscious bias can have enormous impact in the workplace and can cause people to unintentionally favor some groups−often ones that are like them−over others. This can lead to differences in who gets recruited and hired, who get considered and offered advancement opportunities, and whose voice is listened to.

    Join us  to learn how to mitigate the impact of unconscious bias on the workplace and how doing so helps unleash the potential of all employees.
