Be seen as a full-fledged member of the top management team

Being in the Human Resource department, you can influence your company's direction and contribute to the corporate discussion about customers, products and strategy. But do you? Are you a participant in senior-level meetings? Do managers seek your opinion? Are you seen as an equal business partner and a full-fledged member of the top management team? Some people still think of Human Resource as those guys that just do the “people stuff,” shuffling contracts and recruiting new hires. In fact, there’s disconnect between how the HR function is perceived in many organizations and the often-untapped potential it offers in a business climate that is fuelled with change and transformation. Simply put, most business leaders understand the basic function of HR, but they don't see the bigger opportunities to help them be more effective and to impact marketplace growth.

The challenge for HR leaders and professionals now is to claim their power and show their value added in a bottom-line way. The challenge for them is to get their voices heard and to gain more influence inside the organization so that business leaders will listen to their recommendations and take action. If you’re going to be heard, listened to, and believed, you must excel at personal power and influence to become a trusted partner and advisor to senior leadership and play a greater role in the company’s goals—not from a compliance standpoint—but from a growth standpoint.

Marcia Zidle shows you how and when to use the range of influence techniques, build your power bases, and sharpen your persuasion skills so that they can be viewed as a strategic partner working to support the business strategy. After attending this webinar, you will walk away with an understanding of how to build your personal or informal power and political savvy, build credibility by getting out of your HR silo and into the operations mainstream and build partnerships working to support the business strategy and increase the effectiveness of the organization.
