Developing Homegrown Leaders

Craig Chong and Alan Oshima

We all recognize there is a shortage of effective leaders in Hawaii and companies have basically two options: import talent or develop homegrown leaders. Craig Chong, president, Fresh Leadership along with Alan Oshima, president and chief executive officer, Hawaiian Electric Company, Inc. will share powerful principles, methodologies, and stories that were used in the transformation of Hawaiian Electric’s tri-companies. Attendees will walk away with proven strategies that can be used to strengthen their leadership pipeline.

This program has been pre-approved for 1.5 General Credits for HRCI and 1.5 PDCs for SHRM

Annual Meeting Luncheon

“Leadership in Times of Constant Change and Challenge”


Dr. Richard Pimentel

These are exciting and challenging times in the field of employment. With one of the most diverse labor pools in history, you are being asked to take on a significant role in the success of leadership talent in your organization.

Dr. Richard Pimentel is a decorated Vietnam veteran who after being disabled in combat, returned home to become one of the most respected national and international figures in the civil rights and employment movement for persons with disabilities.

Using a series of dramatic and entertaining personal stories of “lessons I have learned from great leaders I have followed,” Dr. Pimentel will explore the real meaning of:

  • Responsibility
  • Doing the right thing
  • Motivation versus inspiration
  • Character versus charisma
  • Making your organization not just a place to be, but THE place to be
  • Optimism and resolve in the face of adversity

“Real leaders do not look for ways to motivate people to believe in them. Real leaders find ways to inspire people to believe in themselves.”
