Program Overview:

You are a powerful leader, and you know it. But top management continuously overlooks you. Strong leadership competencies are critical, but every determined professional must possess poise, executive presence and confidence. Leaders with a focus on the C-Suite or an executive role must also become the respected strategic resource. This requires a deliberately developed personal brand that has been carefully crafted to communicate who you are, what you have and the value you bring to the organization. How you package, position and promote yourself is critical to your success. This senior leadership program is built for the sole purpose of taking you step-by-step through a proven process to transform your brand and elevate your career!

This program is about YOUR development and growth - both personally and professionally. We will take you on a journey to help you decide what you want while designing and transforming how you think and present yourself to get it. This opportunity is designed to challenge, guide, prompt and inspire you and you'll be given practical tips, tools and techniques - the strategies required to intentionally create the results you're seeking.

Presented by Cornell University Faculty - BOLD HR: Leading Through Influence

In-Person Program:
Jun. 20 – 23, 2021 | Chicago, IL | Time Varies *

Program Overview:

Target Audience:  this program is intended to provide critical learning for HR Leaders who currently or aspire to support senior leaders and their leadership teams. Ideally, the participants are at a level where the leadership team has responsibilities for running an organization, business unit (e.g., division, product line, region), or larger business function (e.g., sales, supply chain, finance).  The key differentiator is that the participants sit on and support a leadership team.  HR specialists who frequently interact with and support line leaders may also be a fit for the program. 

Program Objectives:

The goal of the program is to help HR leaders develop knowledge and practice applying skills related to the emotional intelligence side of HR leadership.  In particular, we focus on helping leaders to develop acumen on the topics of courage, providing coaching to senior leaders on talent issues that impact senior leadership team capabilities, understanding senior leadership team dynamics and supporting high performance teams and managing and influencing organizational politics. Whereas other programs focus on enhancing HR functional knowledge or HR strategy, this program is intended to help HR leaders build out their capabilities tied to the coaching and advisory part of the role as HR leaders in a leadership team.
