Strategic Planning For HR: How To Utilize SWOT And SOAR To Ensure Long-Term Business Success
|Date / Time:
Human resource development (HRD) professionals are increasingly being called upon to be intimately involved with their strategic planning process. Therefore, strategic HR leaders need better ways to manage uncertainty and precious resources, engage employees, and ensure the long-term viability of the business.
Taking an honest, insightful look at your Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) can provide a framework for integrating the goals and objectives of your organization with HR’s goals and objectives. The SWOT approach allows HR to work with internal partners and incorporate their human capital needs with the organization’s goals.
Equally important is SOAR, which stands for Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, and Results. SOAR creates a dialogue that includes the whole system, builds trust, engagement and environmental management systems that improve performance while allowing you to plan strategically for the future.
Join us when our presenter Deddee J. Meyers, PhD, MSC, PCC, founder and CEO of DDJ Myers, Ltd., will highlight the benefits and pitfalls of SWOT and SOAR and how to integrate both when addressing highly complex organizational strategic needs. You’ll discover how to conduct a SWOT analysis and how to use SOAR for identifying strategic business goals, engaging with internal business partners, and implementing the results.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
