Dianne Michels is a purpose-driven Human Resources Futurist who is committed to unlocking the power of Human Resources to unleash the potential of Human Beings. In this possibility, Dianne is committed to shifting the workplace paradigm from a focus on performance management to a focus on unleashing people’s potential. The importance of business results does not change, but HOW they are achieved is dramatically altered!
Her 30+ years of experience, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to major Chicago not-for-profits, along with international public relations firms, entrepreneurial startups, and family-owned businesses, has enabled her to observe firsthand how human beings in an organization impact the organizational dynamics and infrastructures... and vice versa.
Dianne’s 3 ½ years as the Chief Possibility Officer with YWCA Metropolitan Chicago enabled her to experience the impact this paradigm shift had on people’s ability to co-create and participate in ways that ignited conversation, collaboration, and community. She imagines workplaces in the future where everyone’s relationship to work is experienced as an opportunity to thrive vs. a duty to survive as the norm vs. the exception.
