This program will be held June 18 -19, 2012


HRMAC has partnered with The University of Chicago Booth School of Business to create a dynamic program designed to give current and future leaders the skills needed to enhance their strategic contribution to their organization. Four programs taught by renowned Chicago Booth faculty feature lecture, case study and small group work.


This program is designed for senior-level business leaders (directors, vice presidents) who have or will have significant responsibility for developing and implementing strategic initiatives and influencing and leading others in their organizations.


This two-day program (June 18-19) will be held at the state of the art Gleacher Center, designed to enhance executive-level learning.  Registration includes course materials, continental breakfast, lunch and breaks both days.


Leadership Effectiveness: Interpersonal Dynamics

Success as a leader requires an understanding of the factors that shape individual and group behaviors.  Our program begins with a discussion on how to create a practical foundation for leadership effectiveness through self-knowledge, structured reflection, and learning the right lessons from experience. We will focus on interpersonal dynamics in one-on-one relationships, exploring the consequences of our beliefs about others, and providing a useful way of thinking about behavior as a function of personal characteristics and situational factors.  This session provides tools and concepts to understand why people do what they do and how to change behavior to improve relationships and increase productivity.

Power and Influence in Organizations

Power and influence are key processes in organizations.  Managers can enhance their power by realizing the value of existing and potential networks and discovering tools that will increase their influence over colleagues and other key contacts.  Effective managers achieve goals by winning the cooperation of others.  How do you get people motivated about the things you want to do?  We will discuss the psychological tools for influencing others.  Topics include techniques for motivating and influencing others, getting out of impasse situations, getting commitment from others, and building reciprocity.  This session will help you begin developing your own influence style and understand political dynamics around you.

Strategic Planning and Execution

The focus of this module is to help participants understand how to go from strategy to achieving the sought-after outcomes.  Given a properly formulated strategy, participants will learn how to translate the strategy into specific strategic objectives which, in turn, define critical performance requirements of the organization.  These performance requirements are attached to the critical activities (or processes) in the relevant organizational unit and are the underlying performance objectives of a strategy implementation plan.  The objective of this module is for the participants to learn how to translate strategy into specific strategic objectives that determine the critical activities and processes required for successful execution.

Fostering Innovative Thinking

Managing in times of change (and when isn't it a time of change?) requires creative problem solving and innovative thinking in everything from improving processes to developing strategies to resolving conflicts.  Being creative within an organization and being creative outside of one's usual domains present special challenges.  This session will use case studies and discussions to demonstrate effective ways of promoting creative problem solving and innovative thinking in individuals, teams, and organizations.   You will learn four critical processes for creative problem solving and methods for getting people unstuck from the usual lines of thinking to foster  the development of promising new ideas and turning them into plans of action.
