To say that today’s pandemic crisis is markedly different than other crises is an understatement. As one CHRO recently said, in 2008 we faced a financial crisis with people implications; today, we face a people crisis with financial implications. The role of senior HR leadership has never been so important.

To say that today’s pandemic crisis is markedly different than other crises is an understatement. As one CHRO recently said, in 2008 we faced a financial crisis with people implications; today we face a people crisis with financial implications. The role of senior HR leadership has never been so important.

This means that HR leaders will need to become masters of the tightrope:  walking a fine line between responding to today’s problems while having their eyes firmly fixed on what the future may hold. They’ll need to identify and analyze scenarios, affecting their organization’s future growth. They’ll want to pinpoint where leadership gaps exist in executing on a strategy that seems to be evolving by the minute. And they’ll have to be on the lookout to nurture culture and communications that have now become vulnerable as employee fatigue sets in.

To support senior HR leaders to respond to these pressing issues, HRPA has collaborated with BirchGrove Inc.  to develop the Road to Recovery:  A Blueprint for Senior Human Resources Leaders. This 5-part series Executive Master Class has been designed to give you time to pause, plan and prepare for 2021 and beyond.

Each week we’ll be exploring a building block that will enable you to design your personalized blueprint.

Session 1: We take a pause to reflect on your most significant HR challenges

Session 2: We make the leap to explore key forces and trends shaping your portfolio, developing scenarios along the way

Session 3: We put your scenarios under the microscope analyzing them through the lenses of ten different kinds of change

Session 4: We plan out your strategy, developing collective and connective intelligence, to design your blueprint

Session 5: We prepare your strategy for resourcing and roll-out by communicating efficiently and with confidence to key stakeholders

By taking part in this series, you’ll be working with peers who are experiencing the same challenges that you are. Together, you’ll develop a strong community of support that will be facilitated by Dr. Jill Birch, an expert in relational leadership, strategy and communications.

We hope you’ll join us to pause, plan and prepare your Personalized Road to Recovery Blueprint to meet the challenges ahead.

Dr. Jill Birch

Dr. Jill Birch is a leadership advisor, author, researcher, keynote speaker and strategy consultant. As a CEO and C-Suite executive, she felt something was missing in leadership and became increasingly concerned about the current state of leadership around the world today.

Jill focused on relational leadership as both a philosophy and practice to create not only real and meaningful change but more importantly, foster happier, healthier workplaces.

Jill Birch has been a CEO and member of several C-Suites and has facilitated leadership breakthroughs for Fortune 500 organizations around the world.

She uses relational leadership techniques — a new way to spark real and meaningful change in workplaces — to help leaders become more self-aware and fuse teamwork with organizational goals. Birch developed the framework, “The Seven Stepping Stones in Relational Leadership” to provide organizations with a practical, grounded experience in leadership development. Leaping across the seven “steppingstones”, leaders put current behaviours under the microscope to identify what may be holding them back, and then develop practical strategies to navigate change, connect the dots, and grow competitive advantage.

Jill Birch holds a PhD from Griffith University in Australia, and an MA from the University of Toronto where she researched how CEOs learn to lead, and how they learn to learn. She is also a Certified Association Executive.
