1.25 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: Relationship Management, Communication, Business Acumen | Intended Audience: Senior-Level
Workplace Application:
You will learn how to speak to the C-suite in business terms and effectively communicate your objectives to key business decision makers. 

Employees are a business's biggest asset but all too often businesses lose valuable strategic insight by not properly having HR represented at the boardroom table. Enter the CHRO. To become a part of strategic decision-making, you must effectively communicate across the C-suite. This session will teach the C-suite language – a critical first step in initiating a meaningful conversation about HR strategically interacting with them to achieve the business's overall vision and objectives. This session will cover:

  • Why it's your responsibility to learn how to effectively communicate at a C-suite level if you want to be a part of the C-suite. 
  • How to build relationships with key C-suite decisions makers. 
  • Key topics and messages that resonate most with each C-suite executive (CEO, CFO, COO).
  • How to hone your communications skills and talking points that align with those C-level executives.
