This nomination-only program enables participants to meet practicing top CHROs who will share their personal insight on:
- The unique dynamics and real-world demands of being a CHRO
- The specific talents and skills needed to shape innovative strategies and flawlessly execute programs
In addition, you'll take part in discussions led by senior Cornell ILR faculty who will share insights on the key issues faced by CHROs today and examine solutions for meeting these challenges.
In this 4.5-day intensive program, participants will leave with not only a firsthand look at what it takes to be a successful CHRO but also a personal development plan to help identify and address the skill gaps and critical business challenges facing their own organizations.
