Add the skills, foresight, and capability that can help make you an even more influential leader or contributor in your organization. Join CLA’s LEAD Roundtables. Members of LEAD (Learn, Engage, and Develop) benefit from one simple goal: Build more capable, influential leaders within organizations and become better people along the way.

There are two areas of focus for membership: Foundational (offering an overview of the core areas of HR compliance) and Experienced (focusing on cultural engagement, strategic leadership, and more confidently defining and addressing issues). Membership in either group includes:

  • Live sessions. Nine 3-hour sessions in groups of 15 or less, led by one of CLA’s HRCO Consultants.
  • Accreditation. Each session is valid for 2.5 PDCs toward SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification. These programs have been submitted to the HRCI for review.
  • Active engagement. Group facilitation follows a 70% “Doing,” 30% “Coaching,” and 10% “Teaching” approach.
  • Skill application. Monthly content is focused on helping members learn, discuss, practice, and apply critical skills and concepts.
  • All materials. Following each session, members receive an email(s) with all the research and materials used in the session to use as they wish in their organizations. We encourage members to add the research to their library of resources and consider using the materials inside their own businesses.
  • Foundations: Topics follow the employment lifecycle with education around recruiting, retention, total rewards, compliance, and documentation.
  • Experienced: Topics are established by vote of prior-year members.

Who should attend

Foundations LEAD is designed for business professionals of all types who are the caretakers of human resources yet lack the technical training in the profession.

Experienced LEAD is designed for business professionals seeking a peer group that problem-solves, thinks more strategically, and works as an influential LEADer within their organization.
