This unique, fast-paced program is about re-igniting your HR career! It’s about you becoming more effective and producing better results for your organization!

Lesson #1: Discovering WHY You Want to be GREAT at HR
How clear are you about your desire to become a strategic HR partner? Are you on the right path? How motivated are you? Do you know how others view you? It’s time to get clear about your future opportunities.

Lesson #2: Diagnosing Your HR Needs and Defining the Bottom-Line Opportunity
How well do you know your HR numbers? How well can you define the bottom-line impacts of your HR efforts? Do know what management needs from you?

Lesson #3: Upgrade Your Hiring Practices
Hiring is the “tipping point” of the HR function. Most performance, retention, and legal problems are solved in the hiring process.

Lesson #4: Performance Management … that Works
If we can help our employees become just 5%-10% more productive we can generate a significant bottom line impact.

Lesson #5: Upgrade Your Retention Practices
The cost of turnover is enormous and one of the main concerns of CEOs nationwide.

Lesson # 6: Innovation and Best Practices
So, just how out of the box are you? Are you reacting to the competition or creating the standard to follow?

Lesson #7: Emotions Intelligence at Work- the 40/40 Solution
Have you ever fantasized about going to work where there were no people to deal with that day? HR is stuck in a never-ending drama between management and the rank and file. Helping navigate the inevitable emotional challenges goes a long way to improving your culture…and bottom line.

Lesson #8: Wrapping it Up: Create a Plan for Growing the Bottom Line!
There is no substitute for having a plan! In this final lesson you will learn how to create a strategic plan that will get the attention of your CEO and executive team.
