Providing up-and-coming leaders in the people profession with a structured opportunity to learn from senior leaders
We will only be able to change work for the better if we support our future leaders and continue to develop the profession. Whether you are looking to make a leap into a more senior level role or simply develop your career in the right way, we can help.
Our members told us that one way we could support their careers would be to match potential leaders with those already in senior level roles. We've helped many of our members focus on what they need to do to move into that next role or project.
I feel 100% better than I did – and I’m on the right page and know where I want to get to. You couldn’t have paired me with a better mentor……a balanced individual and the epitome of what I got into HR for.
Aspiring HRD mentee
You always have takeaway learnings from each interaction…..to think about leadership demands; the future of work; organisational trends; as well as unforeseen events like coronavirus – these are the challenges that every HR leader is facing….When you follow the process of talking through these issues, it helps you structure your own thoughts.
