Transforming How the World  Views HR

Shouldn't Be Done Alone

HR Leaders are at the intersection of the pandemic, political and social unrest, talent and demographic shifts, digitization, racial and gender inequities and talent shortage!  HR leaders are in the center of every strategic discussion and smart CEOs and Boards are understanding the value of the CHRO's office so we have to be able to respond quickly with well informed decision (don't let a good crisis go to waste!).

It's an opportunity but at the same time it's overwhelming on top of that because of the talent shortage, margins are getting squeezed and HR leaders need to drive value.

But, don't try and do this alone because without peers who you trust and who know you well, takes longer to solve sticky problems
...getting access to market data to influence senior execs can be challenging
...the consequences of isolation and burnout are real

Having facilitated hundreds of HR masterminds meetings, we know how many hats CHROs and senior HR function leaders have to wear. We see how HR budgets don’t always allow for deep centers of excellence yet HR leaders are expected to transform their organization while juggling the day-to-day.  

This is why we’ve spent the last 6 years connecting hundreds of HR Leaders so they can help each other solve major challenges and celebrate wins. The trust network is priceless!

What Makes HR Masterminds So Special?

At CHRO Partners we know that CHROs & senior HR function leaders want to feel confident in the strategies they bring to their organizations. In order to become that consultative advisor, you need trusted sources along with timely & tailored advice.

The Problem is, there is no shortage of white papers, webinars & seminars which makes you feel overwhelmed and not sure where to start.

We believe there is nothing more important to helping you feel confident in your strategies than having a TRUST NETWORK of peers who understand your challenges and will give you unbiased feedback specific to your situation .

We understand HR leaders today are doing at least three jobs: 1. Business strategist; 2. Crisis of the moment counselor and 3. Employees' well-being doctor.

The ironic part is HR leaders aren’t focused on SELF-CARE which is why we created HR only peer groups to be a sounding board and to have a true SAFE-SPACE to share challenges, get advice and sometimes just vent to people who get your life.

CHRO Partners’ HR Masterminds have quickly become the one personal development activity senior HR leaders prioritize. Cindy Lu, CHRO Partners’ founder has put hundreds of HR leaders together in SAFE settings to help them solve problems unique to HR leaders. And as a result, they’re making faster, more confident decisions, saving time and avoiding career altering mistakes.

To become a HR Mastermind member: 1. Have a Zoom Clarity call with our Founder 2. Determine best Group for you & 3. Join a Mastermind Group and start solving challenges

Apply today to become a member so you can stop trying to solve challenging problems in isolation and start building relationships with a trusted peer group.
