Have you ever been sitting there in a meeting with a senior executive and they say something that makes your jaw almost drop open? And you think to yourself, “this is a coaching opportunity 😉”.
We have all been there and know that our ability to coach and influence sr. executives is a critical skill for all HR leaders even if you aren’t in the CHRO role yet. In fact, in our CHRO skill survey this year, “Coaching Skills” (the ability to influence the “C” suite) was ranked in the top 5 skills for future CHROs.
So, we decided to interview the fabulous Debbie Dennis, Chief Customer Officer and CHRO at Oncor on the crucial skill of being able to influence the “C” suite. Watch this video to learn…

Because you are on “the list”, you and your team will have a chance to participate in the founders launch before we tell the world! Look out for my email later this week. Here is the link to register:
