Technology for the HR Department of One
Technology -- we absolutely rely on it but sometimes we can feel overwhelmed by it. In this podcast episode, Samm chats with Phil Strazzulla, an HR technology expert, all about how to approach integrating technology into our organizations and lives while actually enhancing the humanity in our processes. HR Technology has become the go-to solution for many HR Departments of One. It makes sense to look to software to serve as a form of delegation to improve overall efficiency. However, it is important to keep in mind that when we invite new technology into our organizations, it will impact the balance of energy. Our hope is that it preserves it, but we also have discovered that some of the side effects of increased use of technology actually rapidly deplete our energy and negatively impact overall wellness. So what is that balance? Phil helps us to get strategic about the process of integrating new systems and inspires us to use HR technology to enhance the experience our employees, customers and job candidates have with our organizations.

Intuition is a game-changing leadership skillset, but what is intuition exactly and how does it manifest in the workplace? We kick off Season 3 of the HRart of It podcast with this conversation all about intuitive leadership. Samm is joined by the literal voice of The HR Intuitive, Dave Chiaverini, to discuss the intuitive leaders they've encountered as well as the newest workforce generation and how they tap into their intuition. Could it be that the workforce to come is perhaps more attuned intuitively than generations before? And, when it comes to recruiting and hiring for culture fit, isn’t it intuition driving those decisions? Join us for this episode of the HRart of It podcast!

This episode of the HRart of It podcast is all about a classic Qigong regulatory practice called the Microcosmic Orbit. Regulation allows us to balance our energy internally, ensuring that it is distributed in the most effective way for our healing.

It's also a beautiful way that she concludes all of the healing qigong treatments with clients at the HRart Center. For the month of November, Samm has shared the five most recommended Qigong exercises she has given to clients in 2021. Each week she covered the intention and power of the exercise, and then we practiced together. Find the other episodes and the show notes at www.hrartcenter.com.

Join us in this podcast episode as we continue our work on releasing excess emotion through Qigong. This time we are targeting the heart and its' commonly stored emotion of deep anxiety. Our current global climate has given birth to new levels of anxiety in several different arenas of life. Without a way to move this energy out of the heart, we have the potential to create dense stagnations that can trigger anxiety attacks and panic attacks. For the month of November, Samm is sharing the five most recommended Qigong exercises she has given to clients in 2021. Each week she’ll cover the intention and power of the exercise, and then we will practice together. Find the show notes at www.hrartcenter.com.

Let’s discuss the art of releasing excess emotion through Qigong healing sounds. Anger, which resides in the Liver, will tax the organ further without a healthy release. Even if you don’t consider yourself to be an angry person, you could find yourself attracting anger, in which case, you could be storing the anger of others. Regardless, at the end of the day, our Liver always needs a little more love and care. For the month of November, Samm is sharing the five most recommended Qigong exercises she has given to clients in 2021. Each week she’ll cover the intention and power of the exercise, and then we will practice together. Find the show notes at www.hrartcenter.com.

Energizing the Kidneys
In Chinese Medicine, the kidneys are known as the energy storage tanks, which our very yang-filled lives drain quickly. In this episode of the HRart of It podcast, we focus on caring for our kidneys. The exercise Samm shares with us is a quick way to refill these tanks. It will come in handy when you need that little pick-me-up. For the month of November, Samm is sharing the five most recommended Qigong exercises she has given to clients in 2021. Each week she'll cover the intention and power of the exercise, and then we will practice together. Find the show notes at www.hrartcenter.com.

In this episode, we begin with the simplest form of Qigong: the breath. Abdominal breathing is referred to as natural breathing in Qigong and allows us to harness the power of the breath. As we breathe, we are naturally taking in new nourishing energy with our inhale and releasing energy that does not serve us with our exhale. When we add intention to something so natural, we magnify its healing capabilities. For the month of November, Samm is sharing the five most recommended Qigong exercises she has given to clients in 2021. Each week she'll cover the intention and power of the exercise, and then we will practice together. Find the show notes at www.hrartcenter.com.

Gallup's Clifton Strengths Assessment with Micah Lorenc
On this episode of the HRart of It podcast, our guest Micah Lorenc walks us through Gallup’s Clifton Strengths Assessment, a strengths-based development tool that breaks down an individual's greatest and lowest strengths. This is no ordinary, forgettable personality test. The magic of this tool and Micah’s deep understanding of it is it allows us to see what an employee, a team, and a marriage could look like if we deeply understood our own strengths as well as each other’s strengths, and then we celebrated them.

The Next Workforce with Generation HR
Generation Z is quickly going to make up about 30% of the global workforce. This episode of the HRart of It Podcast is all about highlighting this next generation of HR practitioners and the power and passion they have to change the workplace for the better. This is an interview with Aleah Vaske and Kaylee Wurth, two of the four change makers behind the podcast Generation HR. They originally created Generation HR after the University of Northern Iowa’s Society for Human Resource Management (UNI-SHRM) student organization decided to research the new U.S. Supreme Court ruling stating that federal civil rights law prohibits employers from discriminating against workers on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Once they realized that this groundbreaking ruling was neither known about nor understood on campus and in workplaces throughout their community, these driven college students created the Generation HR podcast to educate their community. You won’t want to miss this conversation about Gen Z’s perspective, priorities and the power they have to make real positive change in the world. Find the show notes at www.hrartcenter.com.
