When Dave Ulrich Speaks About HR, Everybody Listens

HR author and expert Dave Ulrich

Back in the summer of 2010, shortly after launching TLNT, I referred to Dave Ulrich as “an all-around HR Guru” and said he was “one of the greatest HR thinkers of our generation.”

If anything, I was probably too modest in my description of him.

The Harvard Business Review describes Dave as “one of the world’s leading human capital/HR experts,” and he certainly is, but he is also a Professor of Business Administration at the University of Michigan and best-selling author of books such as The Why of Work: How Great Leaders Build Abundant Organizations; and, HR from the Outside In: Six Competencies for the Future of Human Resources.

Yes, Dave Ulrich is as close as you get to an HR legend — and that’s why he’ll be speaking at TLNT’s High Performance Workforce Summit May 6-7 in Atlanta.

The most recognized name in HR

His session on Day 1 of the conference is on “Competence + Commitment + Contribution = High Performance Workforce.”

Dave’s presentation will focus on how “Competence means that employees have the skills for today and tomorrow; commitment means they are engaged for work; and, contribution means that they find meaning from the work that they do.” He will “identify emerging trends for each of these dimensions of a high performance workforce, and will focus on concrete ideas for how talent managers and HR executives can use them to build and grow the talent in their own organizations.”HPW2015

I’ve heard Dave speak a number of times, and there is a reason he’s the most recognized name in human resources. It’s because, as in most everything having to do with HR, Dave Ulrich has a lot of smart and insightful things to say.

Of course, Dave Ulrich is not the only great speaker you’ll hear at the High Performance Workforce Summit. Our conference agenda is chock full of  smart, engaging talent management practitioners, from Jeri Buchholz, NASA’s Chief Human Capital Officer and Assistant Administrator for Human Capital Management, to  Kevin Wilde, Vice President of Organizational Effectiveness and Chief Learning Officer at General Mills, to Emily Johns, Director, Talent and Performance Management, at Nestle USA.
