Strategic HR Leadership (SHRL)
Create and Grow High-Performing HR Teams Through Intention, Interaction, and Influence
In HR, we are often responsible for engaging and developing our employees. In many cases, we lead initiatives that provide real value to our organizations. Yet, there is a lack of dedicated development for HR leaders, despite our responsibilities or the partnerships we have with other leaders. We think you deserve more than that, and our research backs us up.
As someone who formally or informally manages a team, or who helps clients manage their team performance, you recognize that leadership is about more than submitting performance reviews and tracking team metrics. It’s about enabling team members to work effectively together and achieve results. It’s also about displaying the right leadership behaviors that increase your credibility, influence, and impact.
In this course, you’ll discover what makes teams effective and how to apply these practices to the vital HR leadership role you currently play or want to play in the future. You’ll receive practical tools that you can use right away to bring your team’s or your own performance to a new level.
