Grand Valley: 05.27.2020 - Daring Leadership

Human Resources Leadership - Dare to Lead!

In her upcoming talk with HRPA Natalie will share how courageous leadership is not only high in demand but can be taught, measured and observed.  This presentation will touch on progressive research from Dr. Bréné Brown and how to incorporate the new insights, tools, and confidence in participants' experiences in all aspects of their lives.

To lead is daring.  To inspire others is to be grounded in confidence not only in yourself but in your vision and decisions.

The role of a human resources leader is not an easy one, however, it can be an extremely rewarding, meaningful and impactful experience.

Learning objectives:

  1. What is daring leadership and why it is so needed now, more than ever.
  2. The power of vulnerability – how we as human resources leaders can start to use it.
  3. Comparative suffering – what is it and how to avoid it. What types of conversations support better leadership, challenge norms, advance and support people and culture in the workplace?

This Daring Leadership session will develop and enhance HR leaders' competencies in the following core HR Competency areas:

  • Team
    • Enhance emotional intelligence of HR leaders (and their ability to impact EI in other organizational leaders) by encouraging vulnerable, courageous leadership 
    • Augment professional HR practice by building self-awareness of leadership qualities and enabling HR to identify and promote those leadership qualities in others
    • Improve organizational effectiveness by giving HR practitioners tools to build team communication and relationships
    • Encourage learning and development of self, others and leaders in the area of courageous leadership, decision-making and culture
  • Individual
    • Enhance HR's ability to lead the organization with authenticity and build a culture of trust
    • Improve their own ability to show up authentically in service of people by improving awareness of others and self, as well as communicate more effectively with shared clarity of purpose
    • Augment critical thinking and decision making by increasing awareness of own and others' motivations and needs
    • Create a more psychologically safe workplace
  • Organization
    • Enhance trust, courageous leadership (communication, decision-making, culture-building)
