My name is Scott. I’m an HR Professional from Salt Lake City, UT. I’m just a guy living a wonderful life with an awesome wife and 4 great kids.
In the course of my 10+ years in HR here in Salt Lake, I have worked in various industries – SAAS & technology, online retail, manufacturing and consumer goods. Along the way I have been fortunate enough to associate with many different leaders, at all levels in the organization; I have learned a great deal about leadership.
I am passionate about leadership. Not only the theory of leadership, but also the simple, practical application to the workplace in a way that provides meaningful growth and development for a leader I work with.
Leadership is about people – successfully working with people, associating with people, collaborating with people, and understanding those people in a meaningful, individual way. This is the heart of leadership – and can provide the greatest opportunity for a new or ’emerging’ leader to enhance his/her capabilities. This is my purpose for the content on this blog.
So whether you want to demonstrate more leadership at work (and perhaps be promoted into a formal ‘people management’ role), or have recently been given some leadership responsibility, or even if you’re been doing it a while but you would like to refine your own leadership and perhaps train others in the process, I welcome you!
I invite you to read and share the content here, and let me know if there is a particular leadership topic you would like to know more about! I promise to share information and tools that will breakdown leadership into simple pieces that apply to real life in the workplace. (But remember, simple is not the same as easy…!)
