Untapping Talent in Community and Workplace Focus of Chamber's May Breakfast

April 18, 2018

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., April 18, 2018 -  Dr. Timothy Ewing, chief learning and inclusion officer at Baystate Health, and an organizational development leader in workplace effectiveness, will focus on tapping into the richness that people bring to the workplace at the Springfield Regional Chamber’s May 2 Business@Breakfast. The breakfast will be held at the MassMutual Center, 1277 Main Street, Springfield from 7:15-9 a.m.

The Business@Breakfast series sponsor is United Personnel. Underwriting support for the May breakfast is provided by the Regional Employment Board of Hampden County Inc. Other sponsors are Wolf & Company, P.C. and The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts.

According to Ewing, organizations and cities today are facing complex circumstances: fulfilling their mission, remaining relevant in the marketplace, and galvanizing employees and community members to action.

“Our collective challenge is to discover the untapped talents and wisdom of those around us who can provide solutions to our problems,” said Dr. Ewing.

Ewing’s presentation will define what is meant by untapped talent, how and why the valuable talents of others are often overlooked, and how we can identify steps that can unleash the untapped potential in others.

In his role as an organizational development leader, Ewing consults to global and domestic organizations to facilitate strength-based organizational change. His work demonstrates that heightened awareness, skill development, and the creation of concrete strategies positively impact an organization in reaching its goals.  He balances the latest research with proven best practices to assist clients in creating inclusive, high performing work environments.

His current and past clients include Novartis Institutes, TJX Companies, Boeing Corp., PNC Bank, Pfizer, Inc., and The Avon Corporation.

Ewing earned his doctorate in Organizational Behavior from the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western University.  He also holds a master’s degree in International and Cultural Management from the School for International Training.

Reservations are $25 in advance for Springfield Regional Chamber members ($30 at the door); $35 for general admission ($40 at the door). Reservations are suggested and can be made online at www.springfieldregionalchamber.com.
