MegaSession A: The Three Imperatives for HR Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness

Tuesday, May 12th, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

What’s it all about? New demands on the HR profession – business partnerships, strategy and analytics, and values-based thinking – suggest the need for an evolving leadership model. Tricia Naddaff, President of MRG in Portland, Maine, offers a fresh way to view this leadership conundrum by breaking down the challenge into three imperatives. The imperatives for shared leadership, organizational effectiveness, and HR impact. Tricia begins by describing how leadership has evolved over the past 6 decades to the point where it is unrealistic to expect individual leaders to be effective on their own at the full range of expectations. Part two looks at modern organizational conditions that challenge leaders to be impactful and identifies how organizations can support the success of leaders and non-leader employees. The denouement (and where we will spend most of our time) looks at the HR role in creating and supporting leaders who can drive more effective organizational practices and cultures. Witness new research on the Best Leadership Practices of highly effective HR leaders – helping HR leaders to think about their leadership growth goals.
