| Competencies: HR Expertise, Leadership & Navigation | Intended Audience: Mid-Level

The only constant across industries, workplaces and geographies and generations is change. All too often we succumb to a false sense of security through promises of best practices and one-size-fits-all solutions. But bringing about impactful changes means that what worked in one place at one time, may not work here and now. If you don’t understand your current context, it’s hard to be successful in evolving your company and in positioning HR for influence.  In a wide-ranging discussion, Gautam Srivastava recounts the lessons of a career spanning decades, roles, and industries, his views on the ultimate purposes of HR, and how mastering context has enabled him to thrive across uncertainty and ambiguity.
Learning objectives: 

  • Explore and understand the relationships and interaction of internal, external and social contexts
  • Know how HR professionals can leverage their understanding of context to inform a positive agenda for HR
  • Learn how critical focus and process are to HR success
