Effective Relationships with Lorie Hulsey
Show Notes

“I don’t always tell them what they want to hear…I have to have that trust and relationship to get people to be honest with me so I can be honest with them and how do we move forward with that.”

-Lorie Hulsey

How do you like being the person who sometimes has to say no to people?  Do you dread it?  Accept it?  Enjoy it? :) Today’s guest makes the case that being able to say no as well as yes is key to effective relationships with your employees and stakeholders.

My guest is Lorie Hulsey. Lorie currently serves as the Senior Vice President & Manager of Human Resources at First Oklahoma  Bank. She received a bachelor’s in business administration, majoring in Human Resource Management,  from Northeastern State University. With more than 20 years of HR experience in a variety of industries,  Lorie enjoys finding success in a challenging work environment, focusing on building effective  relationships with individuals in her organizations, and helping employees become the best version of  themselves, while finding success within their careers. 

As a native of Oklahoma, Lorie enjoys living on a small farm with her husband and eleven-year-old son in a suburb of Tulsa, OK. She enjoys spending time helping assist coaching her son’s intermediate basketball  team, sewing and drag racing!
