Effective Leadership Communications for HR Professionals
As an HR Manager, you will be asked to present to a senior leadership team many times in your career if you haven’t already. Defining a problem and identifying the appropriate call to action is difficult. The overall objective of this course is to help you develop a clear, concise communication when handling three different HR related scenarios including:
During this course, I’ll demonstrate how to set up a professional presentation, review the best method for telling your story and ways to prepare for your meeting. We’ll develop a succinct, straightforward set of communications to address common HR scenarios. The lessons will prepare you for that moment in front of your senior leaders; a moment to build credibility, improve your brand and bring visibility to an important HR issue.

Title: Deadly Distractions
Module: Setting The Foundation
In the next sections, I’ll highlight how to use each of these questions to tell an HR related story. In the meantime, let’s summarize the deadly ds or distractions while I demonstrate building another slide. So let’s go up to the Home tab, click Insert and go to Title and Content. And I want to add a subtitle here so let’s go to Insert, Textbox and we’ll drop it right underneath our main heading just as we’ve done before. We want to update the font so it’s Arial and size 28. Hit Enter. We’re going to type in the Deadly Distractions.
I want to go down to our textbox and I’m thinking our Deadly Distractions are going to take up a little bit more room. So I’m going to make this a little bit bigger. Drag it down and click into it to add our content. Number 1, Design templates. I know a white background may seem boring but when you use a designer background it can be difficult to read your content and it can actually draw attention away from your message. Number 2, Animations. They can be very disruptive and along with this, Clipart. Your audience is going to be thinking more about the art work and where you found it instead of your talking points. Number 4, too many slides. And associated to this, too much information on a slide. You want your audience to be thinking about about you’re referring to, what you’re talking points are as opposed to reading the next great novel. Number 6, different font types and sizes. Again that can take away from the overall professionalism of your presentation. And number 7, capitalizing all the words in sentences or phrases. Be very cautious with capitalization. It can divert the eyes from you and the true meaning of your message. So if you avoid avoid these 7 Deadly Distractions, you’ll be well on your way to giving a great presentation!
