Burlington, MA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 03, 2011
Linkage, a global organizational development firm specializing in leadership, announced its new HR Generalist School embedded in the Organizational Development Summit, taking place May 2-5, 2011 in Chicago. This year-long learning opportunity will feature faculty, learning team leaders, coaches, and thought leaders including David Ulrich, Phil Harkins, and Lifetime Achievement Award winners Chris Argyris, Warren Bennis, and Edgar Schein.
The HR Generalist School is designed to equip Human Resource Generalists tasked with additional responsibilities—including strategic organizational development initiatives—for success. It starts with a one-day immersion program on May 2nd and is threaded throughout the remaining three days of the OD Summit. Areas of focus include Performance Management, Talent Management, Driving Change, Leadership Development, and Employee Engagement. The foundation of the HR Generalist School is the learning team—led by experienced HR professionals. The learning teams are daily focus groups where critical introspection takes place. Each participant will be asked to apply what he/she has learned from practical experience, organizational challenges and issues, and will have the opportunity to network and learn from fellow peers. Following the Summit, participants will take part in a year of learning including online discussions on OD topics, one-on-one coaching, and development webinars.
This year’s Summit will also feature Sheppard Moscow LLP as a Platinum Sponsor.
