Owning Your Own Development – Weekly Update

Owning Your Own Development – Weekly Update

Ken Meyer, SHRM-SCP, SPHR | Principal, KWM HR Consulting LLC

In the dynamic landscape of today’s professional world, taking control of your own professional development is not just a choice; it’s a strategic imperative. As President of the New York City SHRM, I’ve witnessed the transformative power of individuals who actively own their growth journey.


Owning your professional development is akin to steering a ship through uncharted waters; it requires foresight, resilience and an unwavering commitment to continuous improvement. Much like the iconic skyline of New York City, your career should be a testament to your dedication to excellence. In the spirit of The City That Never Sleeps, professionals must remain vigilant, always seeking opportunities to learn, connect and grow.

Strategic Human Resource Management (SHRM) principles come to life when individuals take the reins of their own development. Embrace networking, seek out mentors and be fearless in pursuing challenges that stretch your capabilities. It’s not merely about climbing the corporate ladder; it’s about constructing your skyscraper of success with a foundation built on self-driven growth.

At NYC SHRM we are here to help you in your development journey by providing learning and networking opportunities through our programming, webinars and events. In this second half of our Programming Year, please take advantage of these opportunities by attending such events as our Holiday Party in January, our Spring Summit conference in April, and our other webinars and programs. We will also be hosting an HR Executive-level workshop in February.

Be well.
