Influential HR: Driving necessary change

Sometimes it's difficult to get leaders on board with necessary change.  Their priorities seem to clash with the initiatives that HR has identified as vital to the success of the organization.  How can HR bridge that gap?

Dr. Di Ann Sanchez, SPHR, SHRM-SCP will present a program that offers insights into ways that HR can gain influence and create change.  Attendees will gain an understanding of what CEOs want from HR, the steps involved in motivating key stakeholders, and some negotiation basics to help seal the deal.
