Leadership Series

It's here! HR Alliance is proud to announce the launch of our Leadership Series. These programs are solely focused on YOU, the HR practitioner, and are specifically intended to develop and hone your leadership skills.  Each 90 minute presentation will leave you energized and equipped with tools that enhance your ability to inspire, influence, and motivate business leaders and employees in your organization.

The Leadership Series reflects HR Alliance's commitment to developing the dedicated individuals in our profession. We are thrilled for its launch and encourage all of you to register for these unique and wonderful programs. 

Join us for our first Leadership Series Program
"The Presence to Lead: Build Influence and Inspire Action"

How can HR leaders most effectively engage and inspire others? What really creates influence? What’s the best way to gain true buy-in and investment? This session, led by communication expert and author of The Inspiration Code and The Power of Presence, Kristi Hedges, will push participants to think about their own ability to influence in new and surprising ways.

Perhaps more than any other function, HR must communicate precisely and persuasively from the front lines to the board room. With an engaging, interactive format and rich content underscored with social science research, this session offers participants practical tools for authentically enhancing their influencing skills and overall communications effectiveness. Participants learn how to cultivate a persuasive presence, build trust, gain buy-in for ideas, and deliver inspiring communications.

What you will learn:
  • How to shape your presence to reflect your core values and build credibility, even under stress
  • Communication strategies to ensure, and expand, HR’s seat at the table
  • Ways to drive buy-in and adoption of ideas
  • How to discern and use both influence and inspiration to achieve goals
  • Surprising persuasion tactics that move others to action
