First Advantage CHRO Brings Leadership Insights to SHRM Talent Conference & Expo 2024

When it comes to identifying and developing leaders, there is a big difference between chronic malcontents – those who complain, blame and slack off – and headstrong troublemakers – those who get the job done by rocking the boat and breaking the rules. During the SHRM Talent Conference, Michael Pilnick, CHRO of First Advantage, will explain how to make this crucial distinction and determine who has leadership potential.

In his session, “Troublemakers Can Be a Source of Hidden Leaders,” Pilnick will show how smart organizations have adopted a new concept of leadership that unites naturally oriented informal leaders with their counterparts, appointed or formal leaders. Attendees will learn how the resulting partnership of informal and formal leaders works to link an organization’s two major power bases to improve performance and achieve business goals.

The conference will be held at the Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel & Casino and will take place April 14 – 17, 2024. Pilnick is scheduled to speak on Tuesday, April 16, at 1:30 p.m. PT.
