HR Like A Boss
Date: Mar 22, 2019 Beginning at 3:15 PM
Session Duration
1 Hour

Learning Objective
1. Share the key priorities and decision-making criteria of CEOs and leaders.
2. Develop strategies for HR to implement effective change that positively impacts your organization.
3. Learn specific take-aways to implement in your organization that will improve effectiveness and organizational productivity.

Session Description
During this interactive presentation, the audience will be challenged to look at their HR department from the view of a CEO (aka boss). Learn about what leaders really care about and what means nothing to them. Bosses want effectiveness, results, productivity, and adding value. Participants will collaborate about how to effectively influence change that positively impacts the entire organization. Tactics will be reviewed that will ensure HR is in the front seat of key decisions by being brutally honest, obsessing (in a good way) about your organization, truly serving the needs of your company, and adding value with key HR initiatives that will yield results for your organization.
