You will be a HR or training professional working at a strategic level within your organisation. You will get most benefit from the programme if you’re involved in developing the HR/training strategy for the business and have to work with a wide range of line managers across your organisation.
We’re looking for a mix of participants in similar roles to enable people to share their ideas and experiences and learn from each other.
There will be no more than 12 participants on each programme.
How it works
The programme will be intensive and focus on your individual issues. You will work closely with the facilitators and other participants. A two day group workshop will be blended with 1:1 discussions and coaching to enable you to get the most out of your time. There are three clear stages:
Before the workshop, we’ll contact you to discuss exactly what you need from the programme. There will also be some pre-work to help you develop your strategy during the workshop.
Day one will focus on developing a HR/training strategy in depth and will explore how this links with business goals. Day two will provide you with practical techniques and approaches to develop your ability to work with the people you need to influence and to build credibility across the business.
To help you put the ideas and approaches into practice back at work, one of the facilitators will visit you after the workshop for a coaching session.
