Becoming a High-Impact HR Business Partner
This presentation, which is appropriate for both emerging and established HR professionals, is designed to be highly pragmatic and to involve participants in the topic in a hands-on way. The program will begin by briefly orienting the audience of HR professionals to where the HR profession is heading, and why. We will then go more deeply into the implications this evolution has for HR professionals. In this section we will discuss in some depth the shift in what is expected of HR professionals (most particularly HR Business Partners), down to the competency level, and the resulting priorities for their continuing professional development. At this point in the program I will have participants spend a few minutes completing a brief (paper format) self-assessment, which will enable them to measure their current knowledge and experience against the emerging expectations of HR. We will then spend the remainder of the program time in a thought provoking discussion of two key HR competencies, those being (1) knowledge of the business, and (2) challenging, influencing and persuading.
