Executive Courses

Our HR development courses are focused on building the strategic competency and business leadership of HR professionals. To that end, we offer several in-depth programs, each geared to a specific audience.

Open Enrollment Courses

Data Driven Decision Making in HR - Analytics, Metrics & Scorecards: Our newest offering for individuals or teams—an intensive two-day program focusing on the critical tools and skills needed to make data-driven linkages between HR and organizational/business unit performance. Participants will learn how to collect and use data to evaluate the primary HR-related drivers of costs and productivity. Examples, exercises, and cases provide opportunities for discussion and hands-on learning. This course also includes a "statistics refresher," emphasizing interpretation and practical application.

Creating and Sustaining High Performing Teams: Successful organizations create better teams, manage team life cycles more effectively, continuously evaluate team performance and understand the importance of team process in driving outcomes. In today’s knowledge driven, boundary-less, real-time work environment, being better at creating and sustaining high performance teams translates to competitive advantage.
