One of the best conference speakers I have ever heard is Matthew Kelly, who was the kickoff key-noter at the 2010 Ohio SHRM conference. I have used one of the lines from that speech repeatedly since I heard it almost a year ago: Change is easy, transition is hard.
Everyone wants change. People want to lose weight, or make more money, or build a better mousetrap. What people don’t like, or at least struggle with, is the process involved in realizing the change. Want to be 25 pounds lighter than you are now? Bring it on. Diet and exercise forever to achieve the change and sustain it? Good luck with that.
With the establishment of this blog, HRAGD is telling our community that we want to change. We want to deliver more content rapidly, and we want our community to be enlightened and engaged. Let’s have a dialog, and use it to propel the human resources profession in the greater Detroit area forward.
Join us, help us, and bear with us while we make the transition. The end result will be worth it!
