Unleashing Capacity - The Hidden Human Resources
CEOs have been waiting for HR to become a stronger and more capable partner. According to Deloitte 2015 Global HR Trends, 40% of CHRO hires now come from outside of HR and Business leaders rate HR 20% lower than HR rates itself, when it comes to how effective HR is. HR needs to focus on managing the capacity - the lifeblood - of a growing organisation. Rita will share a framework to think differently about not just the HR function, but also about what it will take to lead HR activities in the future. You will learn that by becoming more business centric, the function focuses on the business opportunity first and then seeks to apply functional expertise to the problem at large.

Self-Awareness: The Quality All Successful Leaders Need

Self-awareness may not be one of those critical qualities you look to develop in yourself or in your organisation. Honesty, ability to delegate, communication and vision are likely to be higher up the list, but the quieter mastery of self-awareness enables those supercharged skills to work. We will share with you a powerful tool based on sound psychology, which can help you achieve the optimal mind-set for more of the time and inspire it in those around you.
