Executive Program: HR Learning Partnership

An intensive two-week learning consortium for teams from forward-thinking companies from around the world.
Who Should Attend:
A group of five senior-level and high-potential HR professionals. Groups may be composed of intact teams or selected individuals from across the organization and may include some line leaders.
Approach:
Through pre-work, session attendance, and follow-up, HRLP weaves together three types of activities:

Playbook: Participants at HRLP spend time in classes and are exposed to and apply ideas that they can use to be more effective HR professionals throughout their careers.
Project: Prior to attending, each company team works with their top HR executives and RBL faculty to identify a project that will significantly impact HR within their business.
Personal: Each participant is given opportunities for personal reflection, peer coaching, and a one-on-one coaching session with Dave Ulrich.
Impact:
Organizations that send a team to HRLP can expect to get a plan to solve a real business challenge. Past projects have included creating a strategy for managing knowledge transfer in the context of a business acquisition and identifying HR metrics that link to business objectives. Whatever the project, RBL coaches work aggressively to make sure that the teams deliver real value to the participating companies.

Individual participants also leave with new ideas and frameworks on how to use HR to contribute value, very specific project plans that will quickly be implemented, and renewed personal energy for their HR profession.

“HRLP was, without exception, the best professional development experience of my career. The program provided me theoretical grounding, immediately applicable skills, and an amazing network of friends and colleagues with whom to learn, practice, and grow.”
