The first in a series of three seminars on Leadership in HR, this participative course follows on from Twelve Winds Consulting’s latest report Leadership in HR: Developing the Leadership of HR Professionals.

Presented by Twelve Winds Consulting and Partners Employment Lawyers, the series will provide an organisational development approach combined with the employment law perspective.

Leadership in HR:

For HR professionals a deep understanding of leadership skills is vital. Attracting, developing, and retaining great leaders is critical to organisational success. By aligning the leadership capacity of the organisation to its values and strategy, the HR department plays a vital role in developing organisational cultures that are cohesive, competent and have competitive advantage. In a highly complex, challenging, and competitive workplace HR needs to understand, promote, and support the very best quality of leadership there can be. Furthermore, HR professionals are leaders themselves. Their actions, leadership, and development have huge impact. HR is not a function that sits outside the organisation. HR should lead at the executive level – strategically, mindfully, and skilfully – for the benefit of the whole organisation.

What’s in store?

This will be a participative seminar that will give you the tools to make your HR department a true strategic partner for your business.Topics will include:

  • Building the case for strategic HR
  • Taking up your strategic place in the organisation’s leadership
  • Influencing, engaging, and communicating with other leaders in your business
  • The Employment Law Perspective – Personality clashes in the workplace

Who’s it for?

The seminar is for anyone who wants to learn how HR can contribute strategically to the business.

  • HR Directors and Managers
  • Line Managers, and
  • Business leaders who work with the HR function

Why attend?
