Designed by PPMA and supported by experts in their fields, this modular, strategic programme is a combination of theory, leading practice and real-world practical inputs from senior leaders across private and public sector organisations.
This programme reflects PPMA’s passionate desire to stretch and develop HR & OD professionals. Our organisations need future oriented, forward thinking professionals – those who can both think outside the box, and especially don’t see a box at all. In this way we see HR & OD people as business leaders whose expertise happens to be in workforce related matters and enables business to innovate and transform.
Peer into the Future provides you with an opportunity to take time out from day to day business to reflect on the key business and workforce issues of the day; and share, learn and develop with colleagues.
Participating will enable you to enhance your personal leadership and professional skills as well as extending your professional network.
Who is the programme for?
If you are a current HR & OD professional operating strategically within your organisation and/or you are aspiring to operate at Director level, then this programme is for you.
Where is the programme held?
Peer into the Future modules will be delivered with a mixture of virtual and face to face sessions.
This programme will develop your understanding of how HR/OD needs to maximise its contribution to the overall success of your organisation and public service as a whole. Specifically it will enable you to:
• Gain a deep appreciation of holistic and compassionate leadership, and the significance and impact of self-care for leaders.
• Take a deep dive into your self-awareness and how this impacts on others perception of you, your own self-confidence, and your performance and impact.
• Build your own personal and professional brand, and understand how that will support your effectiveness in your organisations
• Confidently define and assess the impact of HR & OD on our organisations through lived experience as well as ‘numbers’.
• Develop your cohort networks and be part of a national Peer Alumni community.
Peer is a fully interactive programme focused on doing as well as theory. It’s an important combination – understanding how to apply learning in organisations that are often messy, changeable and ambiguous is a significant skill.
Delivered in 6 one-day modules, participants are encouraged and expected to take an active role in their learning and sharing experiences with cohort colleagues. There will be light preparation between modules.
The first module sets the direction of travel for personal and cohort development. This enables the cohort to accelerate their learning through the shared experience of each other’s work priorities and organisational challenges.
Speakers from previous modules include:
Alistair Williams, Creation Consultancy
Professor Beverly Alimo-Metcalfe, PhD, MBA, MSC, CPsychol, FBPS and Founding Director of Real World Group
Dr Kathryn Waddington, University of Westminster, London
