Internal HR consulting skills

Short Course

Course Overview

Organisations are experiencing unprecedented levels of change in an uncertain economic environment – with global competitors, rapidly changing markets, increasing customer demands, and more stringent regulation and compliance requirements. This has a significant impact on the way in which HR professionals consult with their business partners in their organisation to deliver people management solutions that drive business performance.

In practice, HR professionals are now expected to be ‘internal consultants’ to line managers and senior managers. This short course explores the skills, tools, and frameworks that HR professionals can use to effectively partner with internal stakeholders and embrace internal consulting practices.

This course addresses:

  • The evolving role of HR
  • What is internal consulting and how does it add value?
  • The value of a consulting approach and what internal consultants can offer the organisation
  • What makes a successful internal consultant or business partner?
  • Effective stakeholder management
  • The four stages of the internal consulting process and how to apply them

The course includes an in-depth case study and skills practice that focuses on the four stages of the internal consulting process.
