C-Suite Series

Through pointed discussion and guided self-analysis, explore the critical and complementary traits that are required for an HR executive to also be a business leader. Learn aspects of the leadership abilities needed today, and demanded tomorrow.

Join a discerning group of senior HR executives, who appreciate a critical reality: A CHRO’s success lies not just in being able to foresee and prepare for the future, but also the ability to lead their organizations there.

At the HR + Executive Leadership Program, discussion and senior-level networking will allow participants to not just rehash past learning, but to acquire new learnings, such as:

  •  The leadership philosophies and behaviors that have proved to be the most critical to reaching organizational and personal goals 
  •  What impact various factors of change will have on the futures of organizations, and how HR leaders must be prepared to guide that change 
  • How tomorrow promises to change the future of HR, and the ability of organizations to be effective and successful 

Those attending will leave having fine-tuned their personal leadership approach. They will have gained from peer coaching, lively and interactive sessions, examination of case studies, and working with teams on collaborate projects. Plus, a dynamic panel of CHROs will have shared their own perspectives on leadership. Register now and seize an unusual opportunity.
