Topic covers not only HR related issues but focused more on self evaluation and rethinking which I think will be an additional tool no matter what items or coverage it may on actual dealings especially HR practitioner…. I humbly request therefore some of the materials used which would help us (specially on the topic you discussed) to recall salient points for planning and later evaluation of the actions we applied…. Pax 2 Thank you for yesterday. Going back to basic is why I’m taking advantage of the free EB Learnings….It’s my loss that I missed the other EB learning opportunities.

Looking forward to…Pax 8It was fun learning experience.. Yeah it’s free…and thank you for the free motivational ideas in thislearning session. This was one of the events worth attending in 2012. regards to the speakers! continueinspiring people…As the new year starts, the objective of the first EB for 2012 is to aid hr and non hr practitioners on their[strategic] plans in relation to the 2012 business outlook, branding, execution and motivation.Randell Tiongson started the session by sharing business outlook for 2012.With the info he provided, HR should be able to align it’s plan according to the financial prospects of theindustries they are connected with. For example, some companies may face higher turn over rate becausetheir employees are enticed to look for greener pasture elsewhere. They should be able to create an “allin” plan that will keep good employees on their fold thru economic and non economic engagements, and agood succession plan in case resignation is unavoidable.Pocholo Gonzales ran out of time on his topic on his specialization on branding. But his achievementsis the best illustration of what branding can do.At a glance, it seems “branding” has nothing to do with a strategic plan. But it is important, let me sharewith you why.WSPH framework about Branding is [1] Communicating to the intended market what you or yourgroup wants to be recognized and known for, and [2] Making your self and your group accessible tothe target market, and positioning yourself or your group on strategic channels.Illustration: I heard one person said I “I don’t believe on [personal] branding” But the funny thing is,that person set-up a blog to showcase what she does, what she claims to be her expertise, where she has
  4. 4. been and groups that she has worked with [this is the 1st dimension of branding]. Likewise, the personused different social media channels to make her presence felt [the 2nd dimension of branding].So how does branding works for HR? Perception matters. Accessibility matters. By default, HR is thefavorite whipping boy of other departments for their non performance. They blame HR for lack of people[but in some cases, the bosses are the reason for the resignation], they can make HR look bad in aspects ofemployee discipline, salary administration and compensation. HR stands to lose in the public perceptionbattle if 1] it fails to communicate what they are doing and the scope of their role [1st dimension ofbranding] 2] If they are not accessible [2nd dimension] Branding therefore, needs to be included, in anHR plan.Jef Menquin , shared, on the other hand, his personal experience on how he achieved his present stature.According to him, passion and action is key to achieving work related and personal goals.Finally, I closed the session with my talk on Purpose Driven Goals and Self Motivation .External motivators works ”if we are trying to achieve somebody else’s goal” . We can be motivated bythe incentives dangled to us or by the fact that our survival depends on it . Now the question is, what ifwe or the people working with or under us don’t care anymore?Every strategic plan SHOULD be based from V-M-V [Values-Mission-Vision]. This is the purposeof existence of an organization and a person. A person’s V-M-V should not be based on what otherpeople or your school or your family said you should have. It should be heaven inspired and not human.As it is written, “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harmyou, to give you hope and a future” [Jeremiah 29:11].If a person figures out his purpose, this will not only be a steady source of self motivation, but selfconfidence and secured self image too . Circumstances, challenges and people cannot suck the life out ofthe passion and energy from people who are living their purpose.Every organization, I believe, has a V-M-V. because every business is a passion of the owner. HR justneed to extract this from the owner to articulate and communicate company V-M-Vs. If the culture andthe practice is not consistent with what is written, there needs to have a values-mission-vision alignmentworkshop. Values is the foundation- this defines the rule, and makes the character of the person or theorganization. You do not change the rule just to achieve your goals, but you respond to challenges based
  5. 5. on your values. The mission is where a company get it’s CSR programs. And the Vision is the basis ofthe goals where a strategic plan is applied.Per your request to get a copy of the video I shared about “choosing the right lion”, you can watch itbelow, share or embed.Source:
