The California Department of Human Resources is launching a new web-based training series on Monday that aims to develop leaders and spark cultural change in the state workplace.
The first webinar in the series, "Avoiding Groundhog Day the Movie: Learning from Experience," is set for Monday from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Richard Callahan, an associate professor at the University of San Francisco's School of Management, is the featured presenter.
When CalHR replaced the Department of Personnel Administration and took over some of the State Personnel Board's duties, the idea was to create a department that could shake up the state's workplace culture, including its tendency, like most large bureaucracies, to resist change.
The first webinar session's title references to the 1993 Bill Murray movie about a TV weatherman man doomed to repeat the same Feb. 2 over and over. (We've embedded a clip from the film below.)
