HR Professional
Moving from a tactical
to a strategic mindset


Making a strategic contribution as an HR professional is still a challenge for many individuals. Moving from being a great tactical HR partner who can solve today’s problems, to becoming a strategic partner who can solve the problems of the future is one of the most difficult transitions to make. This is because over the years we have trained our brains into tactical habits of thinking. This serves us well in the early parts of our career but those tactical habits become embedded, making them hard to shift.

Many courses that promise to help make this shift look at case studies and role models for strategic thinking, but they don’t focus on how you need to change your mindset and understand the brain to make this crucial transition.

The programme

Our programme uses an understanding of neuroscience to show you how to make the mental and behavioural shifts to move from tactical to strategic in your HR role.

We do this through a combination of:

  • Understanding the difference between activating the tactical and the strategic thinking areas of the brain.
  • Building skills in the key elements of strategic thinking. Including improving your business acumen.
  • Cultivating an understanding of mindset and how to change it
  • Building your confidence to act from strategic insight.


We have many years experience of working with HR professional on brain-based learning and accelerating personal change.

In this programme we have taken that knowledge and applied it to designing an accessible programme which accelerates personal development through, interactive webinars(so anyone can take part from around the world) one to one coaching, action learningin your own organization, a designed for HR business acumen programme and additional on-line materialsfor those who want to delve deeper. The programme takes place over 6 months to give time for embedding new ways of thinking and working.

Who is this for?

The programme is open to any HR professional who wants to adopt a more strategic approach to their role. The programme is particularly  useful for HR business partners and L&D professionnals as well as consultants and coaches.
