Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn about HR leaders need to step up and take control to impact their organizations and we'll look at how! 

HR Leadership professionals are constantly pulled in many directions. This is especially true of HR Departments of One.  While Employee Management is the focus, you want to be involved in strategy and have the authority to make critical decisions for the business.  Your day is filled with moments of employee conversations, problem solving administration, planning the next open enrollment and more! How do you get noticed in a way you can have the impact you want outside of recruiting, payroll and benefits?  You want to be in leadership meetings - but what does that really mean.  If you're invited - are you contributing?  If you're not invited - how do you show up?  Engaging at that level isn't always about your job title. Our role in leadership is often an informal place in the business where others know to come to you and things will get done - and you have the ability to do it!  They can count on you for guidance and coaching.  Most importantly, if you commit to a task or project, it will be completed on time and accurately!

In this program, we will look at how influence, credibility and reach will drive your visibility and authority in the organization.  Making key connections and learning from each other will be key to walking away with action items that make a difference.   You'll be the leader you want to know before anyone even realized you took the reins!

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify skills that your leadership team is looking for in their HR professional
  • Create connections throughout your organization far beyond HR
  • Determine the qualifications to be seen as an expert in the field of HR
  • Consider various communication styles that will work with multiple audiences

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
