AMA Executive Conference Center - Atlanta, GA
November 5 - 6, 2019


About the Event

This year's HR Business Partner University is based on the best-selling book, Fearless HR, by David C. Forman. Fearless HR is about HR’s purpose of driving business results and improving the competitive position of the company. It is about being a business leader, not a department head or a passive participant at a table full of unequals. It is about creating an environment in which talent and innovation can flourish. And it is about being fearless, bold and willing to take risks for the business to be successful.

Over the years, people have developed other perceptions of HR. We all know these perceptions exist, but have failed to address them because it might be disruptive or uncomfortable. The problem is that these beliefs become even more engrained in corporate memory when they are allowed to persist. HR, as a profession, must address its past before it can move forward to make greater contributions in the future.


HR’s purpose is to drive business results. It is that simple, and yet that difficult. Part of HR’s struggles for years has been the ambiguity over its roles and responsibilities that has then led to different perceptions of its effectiveness. A clear articulated purpose, however, contributes to sharper focus, better alignment, stronger prioritization, improved professional confidence, and less distraction. The Fearless HR story—confronting past perceptions, seizing opportunities and driving business results-- is actually quite liberating.


This two-day course will focus on:

  • Becoming a Fearless HR Business Partner
  • Business Fluency
  • Harnessing and Executing Change Initiatives
  • Strengthening the Organization through anticipating change
  • The Impact of High-Performance Workplaces
  • Agile Business and HR Analytics
  • Influencing Leaders and Establishing Executive Presence
