Carol Anderson is a nationally recognized thought leader, author, speaker and consultant on aligning the workforce to business strategy.  It is the workforce that executes an organizations strategy.  Too often in today’s complex business world, people  are an afterthought, pushed to the side by marketing and financial strategies, even though those strategies can only be fulfilled by a workforce that gets it, knows how to do it and continuously improves performance.   Human Resources, the one function that should lead “all things people”, is often mired in a “process oriented” mentality that relegates them to a second team player rather than a leader in “all things people”.  CEO’s need to understand how to challenge HR to be “all things people”, HR needs to understand how to fulfill their role as “all things people”, and the people need to understand their role in executing the strategy.

Carol’s experience in over 35 years of executive leadership has provided her with a unique lens and proven methodologies to help CEOs demand performance from HR and to develop the capability of HR to deliver business results by aligning the workforce to the strategy.

Her experience includes internal executive HR roles in the military, financial services, retail and healthcare, and she has consulted extensively with essentially every industry. Carol founded Anderson Performance Partners, LLC, to bring together organizational leader to collectively unite all aspects of the business - CEO’s, CFO’s and HR executives – to build, implement and evaluate a workforce alignment strategy.  Carol has achieved remarkable success improving leadership collaboration, developing programs and processes that facilitate strategic alignment and building an engaged, committed, high-performing workforce.

She is the author of “Leading an HR Transformation: A Practical Roadmap for Aligning People Strategies to Business Results” published by the Society for Human Resource Management in March 2018 which provides a practical RoadMap for human resource professionals to lead the process of aligning the workforce to the business strategy, and deliver results.   Carol’s articles have appeared in Harvard Business Review,, Human Talent Network, BizCatalyst360  on her blog.
