HR Consulting Skills
With businesses increasingly demanding more of HR, the traditional role of the HR professional has expanded and evolved. HR people are now expected to adopt the role of business partner and ‘internal consultant’ and to understand the commercial aspects of business.
Our program ‘Developing our HR Internal Consulting Skills’ focuses on helping HR professionals understand what consulting is and how this approach can assist them in delivering against the commercial aspects of their role. The program provides practical tools and techniques to enable HR professionals to improve their influencing and problem solving skills and work more effectively with client managers. It enables individuals to:
- leverage their expertise as internal consultants and demonstrate their ability to be value-adding business partners
- develop themselves as internal coaches and consultants
- use consulting frameworks, tools and techniques to diagnose issues and develop solutions
- apply consulting skills and a consulting approach to problem solve business issues
The Workshop is highly practical and interactive, combining short theory presentations, self- reflection activities, case studies and skill practices. It can be run for intact HR teams to help them develop their individual skills and increase their team effectiveness. As a team, they work together to analyse and solve a current (and real) business issue.
