Strategic HR Competencies Workshop, July 24
In recent decades the HR profession has shifted tremendously, and the skills required to be successful in HR today are much different than a generation ago. For more than 25 years the Human Resource Competency Study (HRCS) has been researching the competencies that HR professionals need to master in order to be strategic contributors to their organizations, and in 2012 the HRCS released an updated list: strategic positioner, credible activist, capacity builder, change champion, HR innovator and integrator, and technology proponent. In this daylong workshop we’ll look at each of these six competencies, helping to define each of them, exploring how participants can develop them further, and considering opportunities to apply this knowledge on the job. The program includes a 360-degree assessment that will help participants measure how well they’ve mastered the competencies as well as the influence they have with key constituents across their organization.

Strength in Numbers: Why Group Coaching Works Webinar, August 11
More and more organizations are using group coaching as a tool to develop their employees. Group coaching can be used to support employees in a leadership development program, peers who are going through a shared experience (e.g., newly promoted managers), employees who need to build broader and more diverse internal networks, or individuals from the same work group or function who are trying to become a high-performing team. This approach provides an opportunity for a small group of individuals (typically around five to eight) to benefit from the guidance and support of a professional coach while also learning from one another.

In this webinar we’ll share when group coaching tends to work best, how group coaching should be structured, considerations for creating ownership, and tips to ensure group coaching has a lasting impact.

What’s All This Talk about Abolishing the Annual Review? Webinar, September 23
Have you or other leaders in your organization been questioning the annual performance review process? If so, you're not alone. Numerous books and articles on the topic have called into question the value of traditional performance review processes and approaches.

In this webinar we’ll look at the current thinking around the effectiveness of performance reviews and the arguments being made for abolishing them altogether. We'll discuss the pros and cons of making radical shifts and what to consider if you want to start down a "no-review" path. In the end, it’s about creating a performance-driven culture that ensures managers provide just-in-time and meaningful feedback that helps to drive organizational results.
