Guest Biography: 

No one wants to feel dispensable or replaceable at work. Sometimes it feels like you are treated as an interchangeable part versus a human being. What would it be like to work in an organization that remembers you are human and in fact supports it? A number of organizations have created cultures that serve both the needs of human beings who happen to be employees and serve the bottom line. And there is a correlation between the two. How do we make this happen? This is something Mary Schaefer has dreamed of and worked for her entire career, and we'll talk about it today. Mary has a Master's degree in Human Resources and is certified as a human resources professional. She lives and teaches empowerment and how to have productive manager/ employee interactions. As a speaker, coach and trainer, she focuses on making the most of what people at work can contribute to an organization through their energy and creativity, while at the same time meeting their own specific needs for meaningful work. Mary calls herself a "Chief Encouragement Officer." In our discussion today we’ll talk about what it takes to revolutionize your workplace to be “pro-human.”
