Now more than ever, HR leaders find themselves navigating situations where there is no clear playbook and no clear “right answer.” HR professionals are constantly evaluating options, interpreting law and weighing risk.

Sounds an awful lot like an attorney.

In this session, Michelle Bomberger, CEO and Managing Attorney at Equinox Business Law Group, will teach you to think like a lawyer and will provide you with a proven method and mindset for weighing alternatives, evaluating risk and moving forward more confidently in a complex environment.

You’ll learn:

  • A framework to assess ambiguous situations
  • Tools that provide legal infrastructure across the business
  • How to apply these tools to improve decision making and reduce risk in human resources

Critical thinking, sound judgement and weighing risk and consequence are essential skill sets for any leader. Invite other key decision-makers in your organization to attend.
