    Our August 7th Discussion:

    Everyday Leading: Building Strategic Leadership Skills Using Effective Communication Tools

    HR professionals are often viewed as the organization’s go-to problem solvers.  As HR roles are changing, so must the ways in which we approach our job responsibilities, internal clients and overall contributions to the organization. Implementing effective communication tools in our daily actions allows us to empower employees to take ownership of their matters and build organizational accountability. The result? HR professionals gain back time and energy to prepare the organization’s leaders and execute its strategy.

    Come prepared to discuss the following:

    • - The effective communication tools of active listening, powerful questions & direct communication
    • - How these tools impact your role in HR
    • - Coaching and accountability in employee relations
    • - Changing practice of HR and the role of coaching
    • - Coaching and leadership skills
