In the 21st Century, globally operating organizations require HR Professionals to possess and demonstrate strategic mindset and business acumen in order to support the demands of their organizations that are operating across cultures.
The Human Resources professionals in the Whatcom County, Mt. Baker SHRM Chapter will be learning from Dan Purdy’s session on May 14, 2014.
Juntee Terrenal, MA, GMS is a Member of the Advisory Board of International Business of Western Washington University will present to the HR Professionals of Whatcom County some insightful resources that will help them navigate their roles to become strategic and results oriented.
“Effective Leaders of organizations who are strategic need professionals that demonstrate strategic leaderships, effective communicator, adaptable to global workforce, develop great leaders who are cross culturally sensitive, manage highly skilled talents who are diverse in order to become the High Performance Organization;” said Terrenal.
Mr. Terrenal stressed, “that management of today’s global organization likes to see the R.O.I. of their investments in leadership development. Today, organizations operate differently including the composition of the people that combines Baby Boomer, Gen Y and the Millennials, immediate R.O.Is are earnestly on top of the discussions. They like their organization as one of the “high performing organization” in the market. In addition, they like to see capabilities of the whole Human Capital Organization to discuss competently about global business and R.O.I. results of their activities.”

We all agree that a continuing endeavor to coach individuals is necessary until such time that each demonstrates outstanding competencies. Integrative measurements and performance results must be the active basis of rewards not familiarity and tenure. Accountability is equally important to sustain quality of leadership.
