PMI Nashville May 2019 Luncheon – Personal Accountability

May 14, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

About Event:

Creating higher levels of accountability in the workplace seems to be a topic on every organization’s agenda. Companies draw a direct link between the results they are achieving and the level of accountability they see manifested throughout their organization. Yet knowing how to create and sustain a culture of accountability for most organizations is the greatest challenge that must begin and end with self.

Rachel Von Hendrix will start us here by drawing from the scientific method to understand both the etymology and philosophy of personal accountability with her “Accountability: it’s Not Your Fault!” presentation, then walk through real-life stories of personal accountability that will inspire you to develop the willingness to claim 100% ownership for the results of your involvement.

About Presenter:

Rachel VonHendrix, Project Manager Business and Community Development Domain

Rachel Von Hendrix is a self-described “dot connector” and an IT Project Manager with the State since September 2018. In between Charters and Risks, she is a writer, educational advocate and creative; whose passion for helping people reach their full potential can be traced back to her pre-professional days. Whether as a dancer who would help her competition learn the choreography or as part of her peer design portfolio review days in art school, Rachel has been on the path of advocacy from the start. The reason? Advocacy is, at its core, an exercise in empathy and empathy is where any real change begins.

Outside of the office, Rachel is committed to adult education and learning; speaking on topics from individual accountability to empowerment and continued learning but also takes time to hold her own children accountable by fending off multiple cash requests from 3 of her 4 children in college.

Rachel’s own educational background includes a Masters of Science in User Experience and a Masters of Library & Information Science from Kent State University along with her undergraduate degree in graphic design and art from the Myers School of Art at the University of Akron in Ohio. But her proudest degree comes from Cuyahoga Community College, 18 years after dropping out of high school. And with a fondness for the collegiate environment, she returned to Kent State to teach graduate classes in User Research and Content Strategy.

Then in 2014, Rachel returned to Cuyahoga Community College as a Trustee following her appointment to the Board of Trustees by former Ohio Governor John Kasich to serve a four-year term.

Lastly, if you see Rachel, do not hesitate to ask her about the transition from used car saleswoman to art to Librarian to IT; it’s a unique path. But no matter what hat she’s wearing or environment she’s in, her goal is simple — to empower individuals to differentiate themselves through self-discovery and individual accountability.
