Session #709: How to Be a Better Business Partner

2014 Annual Conference
Workplace Application: This workshop will show you how you can become a better business partner in your organization so that you can help drive HR’s agenda forward while creating alignment with the organization’s strategic plan.

Many HR professionals were attracted to the career because they felt they were “a people person.” That’s great – those skills have value and make a difference. But if you want people to really value your ideas and insights, trust your judgment and leadership and leverage your talents, you need to show you can think like a business professional. One who happens to have expertise in HR. After participating in this workshop, you will know how to seize opportunities, evaluate costs against a value proposition, prevent problems early on (and quickly solve ones that do arise) and present the business case for changes you want to make in your organization. Transform your thinking and the business around you by learning this decision-making process and how it relates to successfully presenting your ideas.

Date(s) & Time(s): 
Saturday, June 21, 2014 - 1:00pm to 5:00pm
