Course Introduction

In HR, we are often responsible for engaging and developing our employees. In many cases, we lead initiatives that provide real value to our organizations. Yet, there is a lack of dedicated development for HR leaders, despite the responsibilities we typically have or the partnerships we have with other leaders. We think you deserve more than that, and our research backs us up.

As you know, leadership is about enabling team members to work effectively together and achieve results. It’s also about you displaying the right leadership behaviors that increase your credibility, influence, impact, and executive presence.

In this Strategic HR Leadership (SHRL) Certification course, you’ll discover what makes teams effective and how to apply these practices to the vital HR leadership role you currently play or want to play in the future. You’ll receive practical tools that you can use right away to bring your team’s or your performance to a new level.

What You’ll Learn

The highest performing teams and workgroups, according to HCI research, demonstrate three key elements: Intention, Interaction, and Influence. You’ll learn how to develop your skills in these areas.
