As the HR function continues to evolve into a strategic partner to every part of the business, our roles as individual HR professionals are shifting. Increasingly, we are called upon to act as internal consultants. Though our clients may differ from those of traditional external consultants, the skill set and knowledge base required is the same. But what exactly does it mean to take a consultative approach to HR work? And how do we grow and develop the skills we need to be effective consultants to the rest of the organization? That’s what this Masterclass is all about.
This Masterclass provides an advanced deep dive into consulting—with an HR frame. It follows a five step approach to effective consulting that can be applied to both formal consulting projects and internal projects that require a consultative approach:
— Understand the Context
— Identify the Client(s)
— Clarify the Problem(s)
— Identify Solution(s)
— Manage Stakeholders
As we move through the Masterclass, you’ll reflect on how this approach can help you better solve the complex problems your organization faces. You’ll apply what you learn to a case study threaded throughout the Field Manuals in order to put your newly honed consulting skills to work immediately.
