The Power of Showing Up - An Attachment-informed approach to creating a healthy and healing workplace culture
The Power of Showing Up – An Attachment-informed approach to creating a healthy and healing workplace culture
The importance of developing a healthy work culture is being stressed everywhere. At almost any business or HR conference, there is somebody, somewhere talking about building a good
‘culture’. However, oftentimes, these methods that are presented for developing this culture are vague, or the application can be unclear and abstract. We leave the presentation feeling the
awareness and urgency that we need to develop a better ‘culture’ but we don’t know how.
Aric Bostick, specialist in attachment theory in the workplace, will teach attendees a distinct approach to cultivating a thriving work environment, based on modern attachment theory and relational neuroscience. He will help them gain a deep understanding of attachment theory, how it manifests in the workplace, and how to use this awareness as an HR manager to be a key strategic partner in your organization’s success, by better understanding how to manage relationships, and help your managers and leaders become the secure attachment figure your employees need.
- Gain a comprehensive understanding of the science of relationships known as attachment theory, the four attachment styles, and how the relationship between managers and employees is crucial to organizational success and building a healthy and secure workplace culture.
- Understand the key components of a secure Attachment Figure and why they are critical to an organization’s success.
- Learn how to use this awareness to not only become a secure Attachment Figure themselves, but how as HR directors they can use this knowledge to influence and advise management on how to become the secure base their employees need in order to thrive and develop a deep and lasting connection to their work

Keynote Speaker Aric Bostick
Over the past 23 years, Aric Bostick has been an Employee Engagement and Leadership Speaker for educators, corporate employees, and Human Resource managers. He has spoken to over half a million people at conferences, events, and school districts throughout the United States and Canada.
In 2018, Aric decided to combine his teaching and speaking experience with his interest in the welfare of education and corporate senior leaders, to create and start delivering a new range of training, based on the latest attachment and brain science (Aric’s Attachment-informed Leadership program).
He did this by developing an understanding of modern attachment science (the quality and development of relationships over the life course), and interpersonal neurobiology (the neuroscience
of attachment). During this time, he also started working with an attachment-informed leadership specialist.
Aric has delivered his presentations for Alabama State Society of Human Resource Professionals Conference, Utah State SHRM Conference, Austin, Texas – Human Resource Management Association, Central Texas Human Resource Management Association, Corpus Christi Human Resource Management Association, North Texas SHRM, Permian Basin SHRM, Salt Lake City SHRM, Human Resource Southwest Conference, Federal Bank Reserve of Chicago, and the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission – Fair Employment Practice Agencies National Conference.

BREAKING CYCLES & CREATING CHANGE
As supervisors, educators, caretakers, leaders, and guides, we create change in our organizations and community. This work demands a lot from us, and the we show up every day is critical. As we provide support to others, we have so many things going on and being brought us to each day. Are we practicing the things we believe in for ourselves? This training is a highly interactive experience that supports our skill-building through engagement, practice, and reflection. Let’s take some time to create a space to learn, grow and reflect with each other.
In this workshop, key takeaways include:
- Understanding and reframing stress
- What’s the point of being trauma-informed?
- How do you get there? Pause, Notice & Choose
- Now seeing the change work
