Being an HR Leader is about more than attracting talent and retaining it. It’s about empowering teams and developing people into leaders of their own –– and it begins with HR training and development. From onboarding (and re-onboarding) to the implementation of individual development plans, HR Leaders are constantly looking for ways to elevate their people to their greatest potential and build a stronger, more skilled organization.
But HR leadership development is also about growing as a leader yourself, and remaining a perpetual learner as you undergo your own HR career development. While you advance through your career and climb the metaphorical rungs, remain cognizant of your ever-evolving goals and be sure to take advantage of the same professional development tools you use to empower your teams.
While those attempting to achieve their ideal work-life balance may keep work and life entirely separate, the truth is –– for many –– finding balance is about seeing the value in each, and the relation between the two. Talent and skill is like vapor: It will fill the volume of any container it occupies. By tending to your personal development, the volume of that container expands. And when you’re as attuned to your personal development as you are your professional development, you’ll find that your career growth as an HR Leader is virtually infinite.
