Bridging the Gap – How to Think Like a CEO

HRCI Continuing Education Credit

Credit Type: 1-Hour of Strategic Credit
It’s no secret that there’s usually a disconnect in terms of communication between HR and a CEO or executive team. In a 2012 survey published by IBM, 37% of CEOs indicated that HR is “too focused on processes and rules” and that they “don’t understand the business well enough” to participate in the company’s strategic development. As a CEO who works closely with thousands of HR representatives, Ryan has a unique perspective into both worlds and knows what it takes to make HR’s voice align with the vision of the company. Secure your position as both an advocate for rules/processes whilst being an invaluable asset when it comes to the CEO’s bottom line.


  1. Learn how to focus on and address the right topics for discussion with the CEO, CFO, and company executives.
  2. How to empower HR by providing valuable and strategic insight that helps shape the company’s vision.
  3. Gain the respect you deserve by understanding how to effectively communicate with the CEO to ensure your voice is heard.
  4. Most importantly, you’ll discover what the CEO’s bottom line involves and how to approach issues from the perspective of business development.
