Strategic influencing for HR leaders modular program

Getting your HR priorities on the business table

This tailored blended learning program will address a critical challenge for HR: How to ensure that the HR function is seen to add real business value.

We tackle two core issues that were illuminated by our Next Level HR Report:

1. That HR must be seen to address the root causes of business problems; and
2. That HR leaders build stature and influence so that they influence successfully at the strategic level.

HR leaders who are committed to raising the level at which they operate and want to:

  • Learn new approaches, tools and techniques for stakeholder engagement
  • Better understand business challenges and how to get HR priorities on the business table
  • Build more trusting partnerships with key stakeholders
  • Learn and collaborate with peers from different organisations, sectors and countries.

During this program we will look at:

  • Stakeholder mapping and developing a smart engagement strategy
  • Identifying the top business challenges in your organisation
  • Positioning the people challenges within that agenda
  • Analysis of root causes
  • Building alignment despite conflicting stakeholder needs
  • Political intelligence
  • Building trusting relationships
  • Building your reputation as a valuebuilder in business
  • Identifying clear, aligned outcomes for the business and HR agendas

This program is facilitated by Deborah Wilkes, CEO of Enable-HR International Limited, supported by one of our team.
