Who is it for?
HR professionals wanting to build influential partnerships with their business stakeholders and develop their strategic impact.

Forming and sustaining high-quality relationships is pivotal to success and influence in organisations – not least for HR professionals committed to providing effective and practical advice, and delivering operational excellence. Developed through the last two decades, the concepts and practices of Trusted Advisor offer a powerful lens for reflecting on the quality of our stakeholder relationships.

Interactive and highly engaging, this practical workshop will enable participants to:
• put a spotlight on the quality and depth of their personal relationships with colleagues across the organisation, highlighting their strengths and identifying practical steps to deepen trust levels still further. This will include a self-assessment
• reflect on the current level of trust in their own HR function and consider the factors which both hinder and enhance those trust levels, forming an appropriate action plan
• expand their awareness of the concepts and practices of outstanding trust-based relationships in the context of their organisation’s requirement for enhanced collaboration, agility and creativity from their leaders
• take away the Trusted Advisor skillset to support their plans to strengthen trust and effectiveness at the personal, functional and organisational levels.

This two-day workshop provides an opportunity for prolonged and self-critical assessment of key relationships and suggests ways of changing behaviour to improve effectiveness – all in a collective and sharing environment of fellow HR professionals.
