Program Overview
In this comprehensive two-part program, an expert in strategic leadership concentrates on human resource management from both strategic and consultative perspectives. Your organizational experiences will be used as the foundation for identifying relevant issues and applying business lessons throughout the program.

Delivering the course content in shorter sessions spread over long periods rather than as multi-day intensive sessions will give you time to reflect on the concepts and materials, integrate them into your work responsibilities, and experiment with new work styles and approaches. Accordingly, you will return to Part II of this course with a higher level of engagement and greater insight into strategies for more strategic and systemic leadership of the people function in your organization.

Part 1, Strategic Leadership and Decision Making, emphasizes the formulation and implementation of human resource strategies that deliver value and contribute to organizational objectives.

• Recognize how value is created through HR.
• Draw on frameworks for driving growth and change via HR management.
• Leverage HR to execute business strategy.
• Understand and model approaches for making decisions under risk and uncertainty.
• Critically evaluate information to determine HR return on investment and organizational impact.
• Improve decision making through the use of business analytics and scenario planning.

Part 2, Collaborative Leadership, highlights the cultivation of engaging relationships with internal and external stakeholders as well as environments of trust and partnership within executive teams.

• Develop effective interpersonal relationships across boundaries.
• Coach fellow executives toward the achievement of collaborative results.
• Promote shared responsibility and accountability throughout the organization.
• Communicate leadership objectives persuasively and effectively.
• Utilize influence tactics and negotiation strategies for competitive advantage.
• Make use of adaptive leadership styles based on context.

Quinetta Roberson is a Professor of Management in the Villanova School of Business. She earned her PhD in organizational behavior from the University of Maryland, and holds an MBA in finance and strategy from the University of Pittsburgh and a BS in finance and accounting from the University of Delaware. Professor Roberson's research focuses on understanding how to enhance fairness in work teams and how the management of diversity can improve organizational effectiveness. Her research has appeared in several management and psychology journals and has been the basis for Professor Roberson's recent TEDXVillanovaU presentation. She is also the editor of a Handbook of Diversity in the Workplace published by Oxford University Press. When Professor Roberson is not working on her research, she teaches courses globally on human resource management at the undergraduate, graduate and executive levels.

Professor Roberson is a social scientist, and enjoys being social as much as she enjoys being a scientist. She is an avid traveler, having lived in Milan, given presentations in over 20 countries, hiked Machu Picchu, and gone on safari in South Africa. She considers herself an oenophile and earned a Baccalauréat Vigne et Vin in 2012. She has been snowboarding for 10+ years and raced in Aspen this year. In the true sense of social science, Professor Roberson believes that "all life is an experiment; the more experiments you make, the better" (Ralph Waldo Emerson). It is this belief that also motivated her to discover how she could combine her knowledge and experience with others in the Villanova community to create, innovate and inspire.
