Associa's Chelle O'Keefe Shares Lessons on Building Resilient Organizations

MIAMI, March 3, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chelle O'Keefe, Chief Human Resource Officer for Associa, tackled the challenge of building resilient teams at a summit of business professionals in Miami this week. HR Management Institute East, an invitation only event, was hosted by the International Performance Management Institute. The gathering provided an opportunity for business professionals from across the country to discuss current challenges facing employers.

Using the lessons learned at Associa and other companies, O'Keefe led a discussion with dozens of her peers about creating more resilient organizations. The discussion included several topics, ranging from whether to hire externally or build resilient leaders from within, an organization's responsibility in helping employees become more resilient, and the importance of leaders modeling resilient behaviors.

"Every business now operates in an environment of constant change. Therefore, change management is not enough- we must be focused on creating change leaders and more resilient employees." Noted O'Keefe. "It is no longer a box that leaders can check, but a critical part of fostering talent in today's workforce."
