Developing the business skills necessary to challenge and influence organisational direction and drive culture
This exciting development programme for Strategic HR & OD professionals, combines individual development with securing practical and measurable improvements in organisational effectiveness and service delivery.
It will help delegates further develop organisational insight into what matters for the business; improve understanding of the types of behaviours and information that creates real impact; offer hints and tips on how to influence with confidence whilst raising the profile and visibility of the individual as a senior professional within the organisation.
Our aim is for HR & OD professionals to have a better understanding of the significant organisational pressures in terms of those initiatives that are ‘big tickets’ for Local Authorities; to know who their key stakeholders are; and what does their business need to achieve not only from a people perspective but more importantly in terms of grasping the business context with both hands.
Through the programme delegates will:
- Understand the difference between advocacy and inquiry and be able to capture learning from collaborative situations and organisational analysis.
- Develop a more detailed awareness and understanding of the business context in which they operate.
- Understand the personal characteristics, qualities and behaviours that will enhance their influence within the organisation and as a leader within their profession.
- Gain confidence in applying organisational insight by using models that strengthen understanding and enable joint analysis, diagnosis and problem solving with service leads to operate effectively as an internal collaborative consultant.
