Influence Programme for HR Professionals
Increasingly, executives are looking to HR to become a part of their top team. They want to find
an independent voice that can contribute to strategy formulation and execution. You may well have
been told to make a stronger impact at the top level, to become a "strategic partner" or, if you
are lucky, a "critical friend".
However, while those words come easy, doing it is often a challenge. As the deep cuts are getting deeper,
engagement and trust within the organisation are dipping. This unrest needs your urgent attention, so how
can you possibly find time to become a strategist, let alone forge a close bond with the CEO?
And when you do the talent review, you sometimes find that the executives seem to have it covered and
you are there just to tidy up their process. So much admin, so little strategy! And all this within
the context of a global matrixed organisational structure.
Little wonder then, that so many HR professionals are unclear about what exactly is expected of them.
Well, if this is resonating with you, we think you've come to the right place. We believe
that the best way to manage all of these competing demands is to become more influential. We believe
that, as an HR professional, being able to influence more effectively will help you to...
- Make a credible contribution at the top table.
- Elevate yourself out of administration and into strategy.
- Become part of the strategic decision-making process.
- Adapt to become an invaluable contributor to the business.
- Align your team behind your vision and build the credibility of HR across the business.
