Adapted from: Ulrich, David et al. HR Competencies: Mastery at the Intersection of People and Business
Before the program, you will be given a template and learning objectives that will guide your pre-session and post-session conversation with your sponsor/supervisor.
You may take an optional exam at the end of the session to receive Queen’s IRC certification.
