HR Hacks for Leaders
This course is an elective learning requirement for completing the Values Based Leadership series.
“Life Hacks” are simple-to-implement solutions to common, everyday problems. Adopting this time-saving approach for HR can help leaders manage ever-changing working environments and shifting priorities. In this course, students will expand their professional toolkits with a variety of strategies for addressing common leadership problems.
Within this course, students will:
- Learn how to implement a “life hack” approach to HR/leadership issues
- Explore a variety of strategies for common challenges
Students will be required to complete the following learning activities:
1. Prepare (Monday to Wednesday)
Topical resources (e.g., readings, videos) and notes will introduce relevant foundational concepts and helpful tips/strategies for your work.
2. Join (Wednesday, 12:00 – 12:30pm)
Live 30-minute webinars will provide the opportunity for students to hear directly from the instructor further exploring the topic.
