What was your first reaction when you read the title to this post?
"Thank you, may I have another?"
Did you "go negative" right away? Did you think I would be discussing HR leaders getting dumped on by their colleagues, the employees, and a long list of other ungrateful souls?
Wait Just A Second
How about we try this approach instead...
"Thank you, but I would prefer the high risk project"
"Thank you, however, I would like to take the lead on that new initiative"
"Thank you, but I would really like to be a part of that expansion project"
There is is huge difference between the "regular" HR folks who default to a "whoa-is-me" professional existence...and then there are those that...
...well, they go for it!
They don't fall into the trap of hubris, excuses and arrogance.
They don't chase glory and extra squares on their org chart.
They don't wait until every plan is so perfect, that it is actually too late to execute (if they know how to execute at all.)
Old HR is Dead...Welcome to the New World
I don't always get it right in my work. I also make mistakes...regularly. But I can honestly tell you this my friends...
I am not afraid to do what's right.
I am not afraid to stand up to the bullies.
I am not afraid of the nay-sayers who are living in their self-indulgent arrogant past.
It is 2018. It's time to be more than you ever thought possible!
It's time to go for it!
How About You
Who are the weak links in your world that are living in the past? Perhaps it's time to stop giving them any airtime, and simply push your organization to the next level? They wouldn't understand how to lead the way, so why waste precious company resources on old school slow-movers?
Go for it friends. Today!
I'd love to hear from you.
