Leadership is about influence! During this engaging presentation we will explore ways to be influencers in our organizations regardless of our position. For years, HR professionals have strived for a “seat at the table.” However, if we want to shape our world, we need to do more than have a “seat at the table,” we need to be influencers and take initiatives to lead our organizations boldly into the future. Let’s step out of our comfort zone and take risks! Focusing on the SHRM competencies of Leadership & Navigation, Communication, and Consultation we will identify practical ways to be influencers and shape our organizations.
1. Demonstrate leadership by seeking opportunities to align HR strategy with organizational strategy to advance the organization mission.
2. Identify practical ways to build credibility and partner with internal and external stakeholders.
3. Build confidence, be bold, and step out of our comfort zones to bring value to all stakeholders.
4. Through effective communication, inspire stakeholders at all levels about HR strategies and initiatives.
Shaping our world means we need to be an active participant not a spectator! As a spectator, we sit in our comfort zone and watch others lead and inspire. Let’s be bold, have courage and step up to the challenge and make a difference in our organizations and world by being an influencer.
