    Sixty percent of CEOs are rethinking the HR function, expecting HR leaders to be "broad-gauge business executives." This expectation varies widely across organizations and business leaders, making it a challenge for aspiring and current CHROs to understand their key competencies, duties and priorities. 

    The Model of a World-Class CHRO: 

    • Creates visibility into all of the components that comprise the CHRO role
    • Establishes a standard baseline for excellence
    • Enables you to take stock of key priorities so you can develop a plan that will guide you to success

    Achieve a level of personal and functional excellence with action-oriented guidance to: 

    • Run a credible, capable and fiscally responsible HR function
    • Integrate HR strategy and business strategy
    • Act as the board's leader in human capital management
    • Drive culture and purpose for the organization
    • Become a trusted advisory to the CEO
