    Pat Poyfair: A creative, not-so-traditional take on a resume Pat Poyfair: A creative, not-so-traditional take on a resume Presentation Transcript

    • Hi! My name is Pat Poyfair. Welcome to my non-traditional resume.   1  
    • I’m a Human Resources & Organizational Development Professional I  started  my  career  as  a  journalist  and  never  lost  my  love  for  carefully   chosen  and  placed  words  when  I  received  my  Master’s  of  Human  Resource   Management  degree  and  made  the  jump  to  building  organizational  and   leadership  systems  at  OC  Tanner  and  CHG  Healthcare  Services.       2  
    • I believe great leadership begins with a desire to serve others Dr.  Martin  Luther  King.     Nelson  Mandela.  Gandhi.     Mother  Theresa.     The  Dalai  Llama.     Winston  Churchill.     Each  approached  leadership   from  the  same  vantage  point  –   they  chose  to  serve  their   followers  before  becoming  their   leader.  Their  overwhelming   success  as  leaders  stemmed   from  their  practice  of  standing   shoulder  to  shoulder  with  those   they  led  to  achieve  impossible   results.         3  
    • I develop leaders others choose to follow The  corporate  world  has  seen   significant  changes  in  the  role   leadership  plays  in  relation  to   company  culture  and  employee   engagement.  Today’s  leaders   must  learn  to  emotionally   connect  with  those  they  lead   before  they  truly  engage  in  the   work  they  are  hired  to  do.         4  
    • I build values-driven systems of organizational development Core  values  represent  firmly  held   beliefs  an  organization  embraces  as   necessary  to  grow  their  company  in  the   way  they  see  fit.     I  believe  individuals  are  effectively   developed  when  core  values  are   translated  into  behaviors  that  illustrate   what  each  value  looks  like  in  action.   Organizational  development  programs   are  then  created  to  drive  adoption  of   long-­‐term  characteristics  aligned  with   these  behaviors.     Armed  with  these  foundational   leadership  insights,  an  organization  is   free  to  align  performance   management,  talent  acquisition  and   other  HR  functions  to  their  unique  set   of  values,  behaviors  and   characteristics.     5  
    • I build development programs that focus on experiential learning Whether  it’s  surfing,  hula  hooping  or   playing  soccer,  we  learn  best  as  we   directly  engage  in  the  thing  we  set  out   to  learn.     Likewise,  effective  organizational   development  occurs  when  participants   get  out  of  the  classroom  and  perform   the  behaviors  to  be  learned.       Coursework  begins  the  learning   process.  Coaching  and  mentoring   sessions  bring  examples  and  ideas  to   implement  the  concepts     Experiential  learning  assignments  and   opportunities  drive  comprehension  and   integration  of  an  organizations  core   values,  behaviors  and  characteristics.       6  
    • I consult For  eight  years,  I’ve  collaborated  with  key  HR  executives  and  stakeholders  in  these,  and  many  other  organizations  to  strategize   and  develop  world-­‐class  organizational  development,  leadership  effectiveness  and  employee  recognition  strategies.     7  
    • I present Journalist:     I  spent  the  first  decade  of  my  career  in  telling  stories  via   newspapers  for  audiences  in  Idaho  and  Utah  at  The  Idaho   Statesman  and  The  Deseret  News.  Towards  the  end  of  my   journalism  career,  my  role  shifted  to  include  more  editing,   and  creative  focused  projects.   Blogger   2012  BYU-­‐Idaho  Communications  Day  Presentation   Even  though  I  formally  left  the  journalism  world  in  2005  –  my   love  for  writing  was  able  to  continue  with  the  advent  of   blogging.  I  was  called  upon  to  write  blog  posts  that  dealt  with   Employee  Engagement  and  Recognition  best  practice  for  O.C.   Tanner’s  corporate  blog  (Appreciating  Great  Work)  as  well  as   my  personal  business  blog.     Speaker   In  addition  to  presenting  training  and  coursework  to  the   companies  I’ve  worked  at,  I  also  take  time  to  speak  to  groups   about  recognition,  learning,  training  and  development  best   practices  I’ve  discovered  during  my  career.       8  
    • I innovate I  look  beyond  the  typical  answers  and  methods  when  I  lead   the  projects  I’m  tasked  with.  This  approach  fosters  creativity   and  innovation  in  the  deliverables  my  teams  produce.       I  am  passionate  about  the  projects  and  causes  I  lead    –   whether  it’s  designing  leadership  coaching  systems,  coaching   girl’s  competition  soccer  teams  or  training  corporate   executives  to  become  world-­‐class  leaders  through  values-­‐ driven  leadership  behaviors.           9  
    • I manage projects I  lead  project  management  efforts  that   create  and  implement  recognition  and   leadership  training  programs  efficiently   and  on  deadline.     10  
    • I market thought leadership In  2007  I  was  hired  by  New  York  Times  Bestselling  authors  Adrian   Gostick  and  Chester  Elton  to  help  build  ‘Carrot  Cultures’  –  or   corporate  environments  where  people  are  appreciated  for  the  great   work  they  do  –  in  the  clients  OC  Tanner  did  business  with.       While  they  wrote  the  Carrot  books,  I  created  a  marketing  strategy   that  brought  the  philosophy  and  award-­‐winning  leadership  training   to  Fortune  500  clients,  training  and  development  trade  shows  as   well  as  various  professional  and  federal  government  training   associations.       I  also  created  a  series  of  public  seminars  held  in  cities  throughout   North  America  and  Europe.  We  were  able  to  turn  modest  profits  in   the  first  year  of  execution  and  have  grown  the  scope  and  scale  in   subsequent  years.     “ Pat Poyfair gave his heart and soul to our brand and our company, created important relationships with our network of sales associates, and worked tirelessly with clients to introduce our products and services. He is constantly innovating—he took an idea of public seminars from concept to reality, gaining significant revenue and leads for our sales force. Pat Poyfair epitomizes dedication. - Adrian Gostick   11
