Thanks for checking out the first post on NoExcusesHR. 

We see it in our professional lives all the time.  Excuses for why things can not get accomplished:

“We’ve always done it that way.” 
“That will never work.”
“Our previous leader did not make us change.”

As I get deeper into my second decade of Human Resources work, I realize more and more how tired I am of hearing excuses for why things cannot be done. 

I also appreciate more than ever when a team comes together. 

How has it been for you?  How have you overcome the challenges of leaders that have long ago lost the passion for their work?  How have you created the energy in your teams to push and push until you get the results you need?

I’d love to hear from you.

No Excuses.

    Welcome to the strange world of HR blogging - perhaps we can help each other along, as I am very new to it too. I think you are right - as a profession, it is time to stop making stupid HR excuses, and to start getting people- and business-oriented results.

  3. Thank you Tracy and William for the encouragement. It is a strange new journey, but one I'm looking forward to!
