BECOME THE INFLUENTIAL HR LEADER YOU ARE MEANT TO BE
The past 18 months have tremendously accelerated the evolution of HR and transformed many aspects of its role. By being involved early in strategic discussions and decisions, HR leaders are the best placed to empower employees, maximise productivity and create value for their organisation.
Whether you're a new or aspiring HR leader or want to expand your skillset, our program is specifically designed for you to unlock your potential. Here is what makes the difference:
1. Small cohort program: you will get to collaborate with other like-minded and motivated professionals and learn together via case studies and assessment of challenges you are currently facing
2. Focus on 3 pillars that will help you make an impact: strategy development and implementation frameworks, influence decisions at an organisation level and drive better results through effective culture programs, added value creation and increased employee's performance
3. Weekly momentum sessions: not only our expert facilitators will guide you through the program but also coach the group weekly to move the dial forward on what you are working on
4. Real-time results: we don't get stuck in the concept, you will learn through and finish the program with your Strategic HR Leadership Roadmap for you to apply
At The Outperformer, we have always led our programs online and developed effective methodology and support systems so you get the most out of your learning experience and time investment.
In a high-performance setting with peers from organisations across Australia, New Zealand and Asia, you will work through a series of workshops and exercises that are brought back into your day-to-day work environment, ensuring you are practising and transferring the learning into results.
The program culminates with the development and presentation of your personal ‘strategic leadership roadmap’ which links together the pillars of the program and the enablement of your HR leadership.
If you come on this learning journey to stretch to lift your performance, you will go through the following phases:
Onboarding and Standards of Participation Session
We will give you the keys to get the most out of the Program and you will get the opportunity to meet the other participants. It’s a great time to put yourself in the best mindset to start the program on a high. As part of your program enrolment, you will start working with a Sponsor within your organisation to gain support for your roadmap and increase your impact. If in-between roles we will help you focus on hitting the ground running for your next opportunity.

The Outperformer helped me adopt a proactive approach on strategy execution and leadership
"Since undertaking this course, my profile in the business has raised immensely with the CEO and other leaders. I now feel confident in my ability to identify gaps in strategy and to create alignment in our daily tasks to help achieve business goals. I’m proud to have been praised for my ability to manage others to deliver genuine strategic outcomes and recognised for thinking strategically."
Kate Urlich - Carman's
I was swimming in the detail and lacked the confidence and language to bring my ideas to the table.
"Since the program, I feel better equipped to be a co-pilot, partnering with the business rather than doing things without understanding the true value/connection to the strategic objective. I strive to bring the team I lead in alignment with the overall objectives of the business and have the tools and frameworks to do just that."
Teresa Paredes - Pharmaxis
It’s great to see my assessments being sought after, and my recommendations being put into practice
"Rather than taking a narrow view and getting lost in the details, my mindset has now shifted to take into account the “WHY” of every decision and its impact on long-term growth of the company, therefore creating strategic value. The Senior Leadership Team has shown confidence and trust in my abilities, which I am sure will enable me to continue to lead strategic projects in the future."
