Who We Are

HR Know-How LLC

For many of us leadership skills, often referred to as people skills, come more naturally. Whereas for many others of us, they do not. Fortunately, these skills can be developed with learning and practice. This is important because, while solid technical skills are key to attracting clients and satisfying employer objectives, strong leadership skills are significant for career advancement and employee relations. HR related compliance issues can be addressed and mitigated earlier when managers have awareness and confidence in their use of leadership skills. This reduces organization legal exposure. As it becomes more challenging for organizations to free up internal resources to assist with closing gaps related to leadership skills, HR Know-How LLC is a wellspring for providing cost effective, appropriately custom training and coaching solutions to meet this need. It starts with a free consultation, so contact me to discuss how we can achieve your goals!
