Want to succeed in business and leave your competitors in the dust? You'll need to learn how to hire the best people, develop them into leaders, and keep them excited to work for your organization.
Human Resources isn't just a department in your business -- it is the heart and soul of your business! You can't succeed if you don't understand exactly how to pick the best team. Here's what we'll go over:
If you are happy with old-school theories of people management, then this course is not for you. If you are content with an average workforce, then this course is not for you.
But if you're trying to make your employees the best they can be possibly be, your team the best it can possibly be, and your company the best in the game, then this course is for you.
What's included in the course?
In addition to the videos going over the 6 main topics above, you'll see Powerpoint Slides in a split-screen Mashup to follow along with all of my points. I highly recommend watching the course in the "full screen" view -- you'll be able to see the slides in much more detail. I've also included the full Powerpoint Slide Deck in the form of a PDF you can download and look at for more information (some of the slides are quite dense!).
As a bonus, I've also included links to my favorite resources for each section -- find these in the supplemental materials section of the lectures.
Now....Let's get started!
In this lecture you'll meet your instructor for this course, Josh Bersin! Josh founded Bersin by Deloitte in 2001 -- and the company has since become a global leader in the field of strategic HR, talent management, and corporate learning.

Additionally, you can find in the supplemental materials section of the lecture the course's companion eBook.

Do you feel that HR isn't getting enough respect in your company? If so -- that's a problem. Human Resources is a CEO level issue, as we go over in this lecture. We'll also cover strategies for expanding globally (or how your HR department should look if you already are an international company), as well as some of the top talent priorities, right now.
There's a new way to talk about HR and talent management -- one that spans the traditionally siloed organizations of the past. We'll go over what Integrated Talent Management can look like for your company.
We'll chart the evolution of HR -- from the traditional lower-floor human resources department to the new model of Business-Integrated HR.
No company can make it -- much less thrive -- without top-notch employees. We'll go over how to find these high performing individuals, how to recruit them, and how to hire them. Get ready to make your team the best in its field!
Because building out your team is so important, we've included another lecture on finding and hiring the best people. Find out in this lecture how to present your corporate brand to attract the right people, and some more tools on how to identify who those "right people" are
We'll go over moving from the competitive assessment model to the coaching and development model, and how that's important for your own organization.
Read this case study and think about your own process. Are you able to see areas you can implement Adobe's "check in" process to streamline, save time, and improve management coaching?
Millenials are the future of your company. We'll go over ways in which they are both similar and different to older members of the workforce. We'll also talk specific strategies for engaging young workers and coaching them to be the future leaders of the workforce. This lecture is not to be missed if you currently have a very young team, or are looking to transition to one.
When hiring is over, what then? Here's how to keep your team motivated, engaged, happy, and performing for your organization. We'll cover:
How do you get your organization to out perform its peers in every category? By instituting a culture of continuous learning. This is one of my all-time favorite topics.
Want to learn how to out-profit your competitors by 17%? Watch this lecture and become convinced about the importance of continuous learning and development.
What makes a great leader? How do you structure your organization to foster great leadership potential? We'll go over tips and tricks for making sure you're nurturing your top talent effectively.
Learn how to bring science to your HR department! Big Data and Analytics are a hot topic in almost every field, and HR is no exception. Learn how to use analytics to test your organizational assumptions and increase your profit.
Thanks for taking the course! I hope you've learned a lot, and that you'll take these actionable strategies and start implementing them in your own work.
If you don't have the capabilities or the resources to right now totally restructure the entire company, that's ok. But take at least one suggestion and test it out -- whether it's taking a look at some newer tools for hiring candidates, or scheduling weekly 1:1 performance check-ins, or planning monthly "transparency talks" for your younger employees.
If you have any questions, post them in the course discussion area. It's been a pleasure teaching you!
