Workplace Application:
During this highly engaging session, we'll get you out of the weeds and into the C-suite in no time! Time to unleash the leader within! 

If you've ever heard 'you're just not quite ready' but never given steps to up your leadership game, this session is for you.   Many senior level HR professionals make the critical mistake of keeping their head down and assuming that their great work will get them elevated to the C-Suite. Unfortunately for many, that day never comes.   This session will take the mystery out of what it takes to lead at the highest levels within an organization and give you a step-by-step formula for elevating your skills from the tactical day-to-day to long-term strategic thinking that resonates with the existing CEO, CFO and other C-suiters.  You'll be out of the weeds and focused on the Big Picture the moment you leave the room!

Learning Objectives:

  • The difference between tactical and strategic thinking and how to incorporate the latter thinking into your day-to-day.
  • Highlighting the strategic value you bring to the organization without alienating your co-workers.
  • How to identify the future strategic needs of the organization (even when your CEO doesn't see them).
  • Getting your staff ready for more so you can focus on 'bigger picture' thinking.

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