Dealing with difficult issues in the workplace can take its toll. Not in the way you might think though. Sometimes juggling sensitive issue after sensitive issue can give the HR pro (read here => me) a bit too much self-confidence. That's not a bad thing, but here's where the "takes its toll' part comes in to play. If we get so immersed in issues where we, by the mere fact that its our job are making extremely important decisions, its critical that we take a step back and do a reality check.

I'd love to hear from you.
