Raving’s Tribal Leadership and HR team spoke last week at the annual NNAHRA Conference, September 24 – 26, 2018 held at the Arizona Grand Resort and Spa, Phoenix, AZ.
Rachele Lyon, MBA, THRP, Raving Partner and HR Director, Coquille Indian Tribe; Deana Scott, Raving CEO; Stephanie Somanchi, MBA, Ph.D., Raving Partner; and Paula Allen, Raving Partner and Director of Leadership and Guest Services, 7 Cedars Casino (in order above) discussed, "The importance of developing managers as coaches in Native organizations: Tools that can improve performance at your organization in today’s ultra-competitive environment.” Paula Allen also spoke on “Leader’s approach to handling conflict in the workplace and developing front line leaders to lead teams successfully.” Much thanks to the leadership and organizers of NNAHRA for selecting Raving to present on these critical topics.
This topic reflects Raving’s expanded HR and Leadership services. According to Deana Scott, "This discussion is even more relevant today as tribes are trying to manage low employment rates and the difficulties of attracting people to rural markets. For the long-term success of the organization and to fulfill the Tribes interest in the realization of sovereignty, it is critical that resources and programs are instituted to create a leadership culture throughout the organization. Raving helps Tribal clients with a roadmap of how to develop professional internal performance programs that focus on growing the team from the bottom up. This is just one aspect of our full offering of leadership, guest service and HR programs we offer."
