    "Leadership Competencies Critical to Succeed in HR"

    What does it take to make it big in HR? What skills and expertise do you need?

    Since 1988, Dave Ulrich, professor of business administration at the University of Michigan, and his associates have been on a quest to provide the answers.  Last year, they released the all-new 2012 Human Resource Competency Study (HRCS). Their findings and interpretations lay out professional guidance for HR for at least the next few years.  Ulrich has noted that HR Professionals, who would have succeeded 30, 20 even 10 years ago, are not as likely to succeed today.  They are expected to play new roles. To do so, they will need to develop new leadership competencies.  In this program, we will learn what the identified competences are and explore in-depth two of these competencies.  The program objectives include:

    ¨ Recognize six important competencies to succeed as an HR Professional

    ¨ Understand how strongly the HR function is linked to the business

    ¨ Learn tips to improve in competency areas critical to succeed in HR

    • Credible Activist
    • Strategic Positioner

    ¨ Learning the Business

    ¨ Strategic Thinker

    ¨ Seat at the Senior Table

    • Capability Builder
