In order to influence at the top level, HR needs to be visible, credible and included.  It’s complex – HR leaders have to uphold the organisation’s values as well as embrace business realities and pressures.  For HR to be transformational, they must build productive partnerships at every level, while ensuring effective transactional services.

Our expert coaches and facilitators enable leaders and their teams to raise their game – with stronger alignment, competence and confidence they can tackle any challenge or stakeholder relationship.

Leading in HR requires a strong sense of self

Given that HR have special responsibility for upholding the organisation’s values, and building an effective culture, it’s even more important to feel comfortable with who you are as a leader.  In addition, HR often take on the role of coach and advisor, and building trust at every level is core to success.  We also help you to enlarge your circles of influence and control, so that you can extend your reach.  Our Executive Coaching recognises the complexity of these challenges, and helps leaders to find their own way.

HR Leadership matters at board level and at every level

In order to influence at the top level, HR need to be visible, credible and included.  ‘Winning a seat at the table’ is just one of the common themes that we help clients tackle, to ensure that HR leaders are valued and respected. HR can be a political minefield, and can get caught between the functional tensions that are essential to success today – for example, driving for profit and quality at the same time.  Yet, HR are expected to always protect the organisation’s values, and to stand up for what is right and fair.
