In many organizations HR, as a function, is not invited to sit at the decision making table and participate in designing and implementing corporate strategies. The main reason behind this is top management’s perception of HR as a lower value function compared to other functions in the organization, and its belief that HR professionals are not adequately equipped with the necessary skills and competencies to play that all important strategic role. In this course, you will learn how to develop and apply six modern HR strategic competencies that will allow you to lead the HR function as a modern HR professional, earn that seat at the decision making table and contribute to your organization’s bottom line. In addition to the six modern competencies, the course will introduce the most modern tool in HR management, namely HR analytics and demonstrate how this tool can be applied to enhance your HR career.
The course is designed as a workshop where participants first elaborate a SWOT analysis for the HR function at their own organization and then identify the various skills and competencies necessary to build and develop both their individual and departmental HR leadership, hence transforming themselves into value adding managers. The course will also use a mix of interactive techniques such as lecturettes, case studies and group discussions to cement understanding and provide examples of international best practices.
This course targets those HR managers and professionals who want to upgrade their HR leadership competencies and earn a seat at the decision making table. Typically, the course is tailored to meet the needs of HR professionals in the various HR functions who have more than five years of experience in HR management.
In addition to the main six course competencies elaborated in the outline below, participants will be exposed to a variety of managerial competencies such as:
