Shelby Turcotte

Show Topic:

This week on HR Power Hour, we have a replay of the new year, new you. Despite the pandemic, as in past years, many employees are likely at the beginning journeys of new year’s resolutions. When those resolutions involve health and wellbeing, often bringing a professional in helps employees stay on track and accountable, helping them to achieve their goals.
 
 
And what do healthy employees make? Usually happier and more engaged employees and what does that mean for your organization—well I don’t think any of us have argued that engagement is negative.
 
 
Join Verrill co-host Tawny Alvarez as she speaks with Shelby Turcotte, founder, owner, and trainer at Shelby Trained for a discussion on helping employees meet their health and well-ness related goals and his “Simplementation System” for success.

About The Guest:

Shelby is an author, performance consultant, and owner of Shelby Trained – a personal training business located in Yarmouth, Maine.
 
He is also the creator of the Simplementation System™, a health & wellness-based system that is built upon successfully implementing evidence-based actions into people’s busy lives. When he’s not training, running a business, or reading self-help books, you can find him drinking coffee or enjoying time with his wife and 2 daughters – often at the same time.

Peak Consulting Group

Show Topic:

This week on the HR Power Hour, the question of if Work-Life Balance being attainable is asked and according to the author of the new book The Work-Life Balance Myth: Rethinking Your Optimal Balance for Success, there is no such thing. There are two important facts: 1) stress happens―you can’t avoid it, and 2) your existence is composed of far more than “work” and “life.” The critical concept of seven slices in your life and how to have harmony with them is exactly what CMA’s host David Ciullo discusses with author Dave McNeff.

Active Shooters and the Aftermath

Shawn O’Leary

Show Topic:

On this episode of HR Power Hour, join Tawny as she talks to Shawn O’Leary, Executive Vice President of Dirigo Safety, LLC, about active shooter training and the importance of having a plan in place to respond to the aftermath of an attack. 
 
Most employers think that it could never happen to them. Their organization is staffed with great people, and none of them would ever wish harm on their co-workers. In many situations, however, the threat is not from one of your employees but from a third party. 
 
Have you recently performed a security assessment of your physical location, are your employees trained on how to respond to an active shooter incident, do you have a plan in place as to how to respond in the aftermath of such an event? Tawny and Shawn will discuss best practices in responding to all these concerns and how to keep employees as safe as possible should an active shooter event occur at your workplace. 

About The Guest:

Also, he oversees our Policy Development Services, Online Training Programs for Maine Law Enforcement agencies, Executive Selection, and Recruitment Services, Supervisory Promotional Examinations & Assessment Center Services.
