Developing Leaders in Human Resource Management Workshop

Whitehorse, Yukon | October 23-25, 2019


The nature of work is changing: with increasing globalization of the workforce changes to demographics and generations, advances in technology and the increasing pace of change, HR professionals at every level need to be strategic and influential like never before. To respond to this clear need, IPMA-Canada has developed a 3 day interactive program focusing in the three core roles that HR professionals must display in today’s dynamic workplace.

Through simulations and participative exercises, this course challenges participants to stretch their thinking and develop new skills and competencies to help them be successful. Participants will leave the training with a post-program action plan to continue their success in human resource leadership.


No matter what your role in HR, from HR advisor to VP, HR professionals need to operate as true thought leaders in a number of areas from diversity and ethics , to employee engagement and workforce management to name but a few. They are expected to take on a leadership role in their area of expertise as well as guiding the organization in people strategy and initiatives. In this module, we focus on the changing nature of work and the role of HR as a leader within the organization, looking at how HR can guide business strategy, interpret business financials and key metrics, and challenge on decision making and ethics.


Historically HR has been seen as a transactional support function, driving administrative actions such as recruitment and payroll. Today, the expectations and needs are changing and HR must be integrated into the business, guiding and advising at every level, managing relationships, balancing agendas and communicating effectively with a range of stakeholders. Using current research, expert facilitator experiences and interactive exercises, in this module we equip participants to build effective partnership relationships including understanding the steps in effective consulting, how to influence others and build high performance teams.


The pace of change is increasing and more than ever before HR is expected to support organisation change and manage the impact on people. In the third and final module, we look at both change and transition, applying change management theory in practice, sharing key frameworks for leading change effectively, and tools and techniques for managing reactions to change and minimizing resistance.
