In late 2018, John began working on a presentation centered around the key concept that the best human resources professionals he knows have a unique understanding of the financial and business side of their organizations. In fact, some of the best are business people first and human resources professionals second. After delivering the fourth presentation to a local SHRM chapter the idea for writing a book was born. And everyone knows the best way to write a book about gaining expertise is to talk to the experts. These chats build the foundation for “HR Like a Boss” the book while providing game-changing advice from those conducting human resources “like a boss.” Watch the “HR Like a Boss” presentation at PHRA in 2019.
About John Gallagher
John Gallagher did not stumble on Human Resources by accident, he’s here because this is exactly where he wants to be. People drive businesses. Successful people strategies are often times what separates the best businesses from everyone else . John strives to know and understand the business daily and uses that business knowledge to focus the Human Resources, Talent Acquisition, and Training teams on solving problems and supporting the business in the best way possible. Whether it be in his departments or across the organization, he focuses intently on leading, developing, coaching and advising both individuals and teams. He believes in businesses succeeding not in spite of people but through them. When he’s not working you can find him tooling around Cleveland, Ohio with his wife and kids or off in the woods involved in one of many outdoor activities that keeps my blood pumping.
