The four points Bronstein wanted to discuss included:
1. Sheri wants employers to know that life is complicated. Therefore, being open to speaking with a teammate can provide helpful resources. She says removing the stigma associated with mental health is imperative.
2. The workplace is changing, so it is time to begin solving the new normal in training, education, technology, and adaptation. All companies face this pivot and need to understand the importance of global diversity, inclusion, growth of the world's workforce, and increasing diversity in STEM programs.
3. HR is an extension of the business, not something separate. Therefore, HR professionals must have strong business acumen and outstanding judgement.
4. People must learn to make informed decisions based on both correct data and trusting their guts. HR officers must rely on their judgment and the counsel of their colleagues.

● What do I like doing?
● What part of a job am I good at, and is it satisfying and motivating?
● Am I leveraging my strengths?
