Overview:

As a Human Resource department, how well do you influence your company's direction? Contribute to the corporate discussion about customers, products and strategy? Are you a participant in senior-level meetings? Do managers seek your opinion? Are you seen as an equal business partner and a full-fledged member of the top management team?
Some people still think of Human Resource as those guys that just do the “people stuff,” shuffling contracts and recruiting new hires. In fact, there’s a disconnect between how the HR function is perceived in many organizations and the often-untapped potential it offers in a business climate that is fuelled with change and transformation.
Simply put, most business leaders understand the basic function of HR, but they don't see the bigger opportunities to help them be more effective and to impact marketplace growth.
The challenge for HR leaders and professionals now is to claim their power in leadership and influencing skills and show their value added in a bottom-line way. The challenge for HR leaders is to get their voices heard and to gain more influence inside the organization so that business leaders will listen to their recommendations and take action.
If you’re going to be heard, listened to, and believed, you must excel at personal power and influence to become a trusted partner and advisor to senior leadership and play a greater role in how to influence others in the workplace to reach the company’s goals- not from a compliance standpoint – but from a growth standpoint.

Ken Blanchard, author of The One Minute Manager said, “The key to leadership is influence, not authority."That’s why it’s important to include power and influence in leadership as part of your professional portfolio.
Even with a solid foundation of credibility and competence, you as a Human Resource professionals and leaders, may fall short if you don’t understand the influence dynamics of power, politics and persuasion.
