Upcoming Events

November Seminar

Join HREA & speaker, Christelle LaPolice, Ph.D. - Industrial & Organizational Psychologist, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

This session is titled, The Goldilocks Zone of Leadership Development. Event will take place at the Union League of Philadelphia from 7:30am-10:00am.

With so many options available for leadership coaching and development out there, it is only natural for any HR management team to find themselves with a confusing amount of choices. Dr. Christelle LaPolice has been working as a consultant, a director of leadership development, and a chief learning officer for more than 23 years and she has helped many organizations choose the approach that is “just right” for them.

During this session, Dr. LaPolice will discuss the leadership development options selected by three different large federal organizations (two in the Intelligence Community and one Financial Regulator) representing three different points on the development “continuum.” A review of these three development choices and their subsequent impact will help you make smarter choices for your organization. Please join us for what we hope will be an honest and dynamic discussion of real-world examples.

From Our Members

“As a Human Resource professional, you are invited to a number of seminars and networking events. The challenge is finding those that provide the best opportunity for professional development, exchanging best practices and engaging in high quality networking with peers. After attending the Human Resources Executive Alliance event, I can tell you that they have it mastered. Having the opportunity to hear first hand perspectives from the CEO of one the largest healthcare systems in the region was priceless. The HREA is the premiere networking alliance for Human Resources."
