Garrett Sheridan, Managing Partner of Axiom Consulting Partners and co-author of Shockproof: How to Hardwire Your Business for Lasting Success, will share stories and practical advice from the front lines about how talent leaders can help their companies thrive in an era of uncertainty.
The Chicagoland New Talent Management Network is hosting the free event, “Shockproof: Aligning Talent, Organization and Strategy to Thrive in an Era of Uncertainty,” Nov. 16, 8:00 a.m., at the offices of Cardinal Health in Waukegan, IL.

The Chicagoland New Talent Management Network is hosting the event because the Shockproof approach that Sheridan will discuss is particularly relevant for executives responsible for the talent strategy. In sharing the stories of leaders who adopted Shockproof principles Sheridan will provide practical ideas that HR professionals and other talent executives can take back to their own organizations.
For example, Sheridan will examine:
•Corning Inc. success in innovation --developing Gorilla glass, the scratch resistant and highly durable glass adopted by a large portion on Smartphone and PDA device manufacturers.
•The Martin Agency’s contrarian approach to deploying talent, which has resulted in memorable ads such as the GEICO Gecko campaign.
•How Juicy Couture’s new President re-aligned leaders throughout the company to improve financial performance.
