Today's most successful business leaders understand that they must manage their human capital as strategically as their financial capital. To that end, executives focused on an organization's people and talent have an important role to play in designing business strategy and aligning the organization to execute. In HBS Executive Education's HR leadership program, designed exclusively for chief human resources officers and other senior human resources executives, you will explore the questions that keep CEOs up at night and improve your ability to contribute insights to address core business opportunities and challenges. You will expand your ability to predict outcomes, diagnose problems, recommend bold moves, and be the creative, strategic leader your organization needs.

Program Benefits

By attending this HR leadership program, you will expand your ability to analyze strategic and operational business challenges and collaborate with your organization's senior leadership team to develop solutions. Through an intensive learning experience led by senior HBS faculty and incorporating unique insights from a select group of current and former CEOs, you will deepen your knowledge of topics that typically arise in executive committee meetings. You'll practice analyzing problems, collaborating with peers and CEOs, and recommending actions that create business value. Specifically, you'll become a more effective leader who is better able to: 
  • Anticipate, diagnose, and mitigate problems that arise in a growing organization
  • Find new ways to compete for and leverage the best talent 
  • Build systems that enable successful execution of your organization's strategy
  • Diagnose problems in service or business performance and recommend specific changes to address them 
  • Create a more nimble, innovative organization
  • Communicate effectively with your CEO, COO, CFO, board of directors, and others on your leadership team

Who Should Attend

The HR-Executive Suite Connection is designed for senior executives who are or are on the path to becoming heads of human resources for their company. Participants may represent mid-size to large companies from any industry or country. Because the program offers practical strategies for working effectively with the organization's top leadership team, it is most beneficial for HR leaders who report to their organization's top executive. However, it is also valuable for HR leaders in any reporting structure who are members of the top leadership team. Typical titles include (but are not limited to): 

  • Chief Human Resources Officer 
  • Chief Talent Officer 
  • Chief People Officer 
  • Executive Vice President, Human Resources
  • Vice President, Human Resources
