Program Description

Every business or organization begins and ends with people - and that's where you come in.

Today's competitive marketplace requires human resource professionals to have an expanded role in the organization due to increasing importance of social and relationship capital. Your challenge today is to gain and use influence to become a better strategic partner, to determine where the organization is headed, and to get out in front and use the human resources function to help lead the way.

The Leadership Development for Human Resource Professionals program can help you get there.

Developed through a collaboration between CCL and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), this program prepares you to become a more effective leader of people and processes. It focuses on self-awareness, proven methods of building leadership skills, and ways you can positively impact the organization's business strategy.


Gain the self-awareness and confidence needed to take on new leadership responsibilities. A session on the art of leadership will challenge you to develop your emotional intelligence by drawing a connection between the performing arts and the science of leadership. Improve skills by identifying and managing strengths and development needs through constructive feedback from peers and a confidential, one-to-one session with a certified CCL executive coach. Learn more about leadership behaviors and the impact they have on others. Sharpen your leader selection and influencing skills by taking part in an interactive executive selection simulation. Learn about strategic partnering, teamwork and coping with workplace challenges by revitalizing creativity. You will take part in an outdoor exercise to develop your problem-solving and strategic partnering skills. Stimulate personal and career growth through self-directed development. Develop a plan of action, including a set of achievable goals through individual guidance in planning and goal setting. Network with other human resource professionals.
