Today’s opening session at SHRM 2013 was energizing and inspiring. Hillary Clinton was eloquent – speaking about how the skills and techniques of diplomacy apply to the workplace. You can find highlights of her remarks on my twitter feed at @WF_Institute.
Both Hillary and fellow speaker Fareed Zakaria emphasized that despite our economic woes of the last few years, there is much to be optimistic about in the years ahead. Both talked about how mobile technology has connected millions of people around the world to information and to each other. Fareed called this “the rise of the rest of the world”.
