CHROME™ – The Chief HR Officer Multiplier Effect

Co-Led by Business inSITE Group (BiG) Co-Founders and Partners, Lacey Leone McLaughlin and Ian Ziskin

CHROME™ (The Chief Human Resources Officer Multiplier Effect) is a unique development experience focused on HR leadership capabilities, coaching, colleagues, and content – it is designed specifically for a select group of participants:

  • “New CHROs” with small, medium, and large cap companies who have approximately three or fewer years in their roles
  • “Next CHROs” with large cap companies who are potential successors to the CHRO role and are three or fewer years away from moving into the job

Why CHROME™ is Unique

CHROME™ provides new CHROs and next CHROs with the confidence required to ensure business impact and personal success in the increasingly challenging and complex CHRO role. It is intentionally structured to promote collaboration and shared learning among HR leaders who have diverse perspectives and bases of experience, and who represent a wide spectrum of companies across a broad range of industries, geographies, and sizes.

Disruptive development through an integrated set of diverse experiences and perspectives is the elixir that makes CHROME™ unique. CHROME™ is the multiplier effect that enables already-successful HR leaders to achieve and sustain CHRO readiness and ongoing relevance.

Solving the CHRO Development Challenge

Have you been a past participant in one or more CHRO development programs designed for newly appointed or soon to be promoted CHROs such as the National Academy of Human Resources CHRO Academy, Professor Pat Wright’s Modern CHRO Program, HR50’s Next HR50 Program, the Executive Networks NextgEN HR Program, or other similar experiences? Ian Ziskin has taught in each of these programs and they are all terrific and extremely beneficial!

However, they are also, by definition and necessity, limited in their reach because they are designed with a very specific purpose in mind – to provide aspiring or new CHROs with a several day “bootcamp” on what the CHRO job is all about. These programs are often content and storytelling driven and are relevant to the specific moment in time that participants attend. But, they do not provide ongoing advice, development, and other resources to support HR leaders as they go through the preparation, onboarding, and ramp-up phases of growth into the CHRO role.

CHROME™ picks up where these other outstanding CHRO development programs leave off and builds on the longer-term interests and needs of highly successful and aspiring CHROs. It is a supplement to, not a substitute for, other senior HR development programs – and it is a highly cohesive way to ensure readiness as a new or soon-to-be CHRO.

By the way, if you have not been a past participant in any CHRO development programs, no worries. CHROME™ will help you quickly get up to speed!
