Would you like to earn a “seat at the table?” According to a 2016 survey – only 20% of HR professionals are confident that the HR function is viewed as strategically important by their organization.

It can be difficult to become a major contributor to a company’s strategies and decisions. Most of us attack our daily tasks with an “employee” mindset – To prove the value of the HR function you must learn to think like a boss.

This case-study-based workshop will give you the tools you need to understand the boss mindset and increase your impact on your organization. You will work through scenarios to understand financial scorecards and the need for strategic plans, identify and interpret internal and external industry trends and develop a plan to address those trends and ultimately learn what it takes to earn a “seat at the table”.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyze and interpret income statements and balance sheets and diagnose trends
  • Conduct a competitive analysis and develop a strategic plan
  • Evaluate effective dashboards and develop forward-looking metrics
