I have a network of close friends who also happen to be in senior executive roles across the country. And they are dealing with a lot.
A lot of stress. A lot of big decisions. A lot of isolation.
Did you know executive life can be incredibly isolating? Think about it…if you are the CHRO you don’t have a peer colleague, really. Sure there are other executives, but they don’t see the world the way you do, nor do they have to manage the pressure the CHRO has to deal with.
Work can literally erode your soul if you’re not careful.
So, is our work life a foregone losing enterprise and we need to simply hang on long enough to quit, retire, or get so frustrated that we try something new?
Now is your time to shine. Now is your time to bring the energy and creativity you’ve been holding back for so long. The crisis of the modern workplace is your opportunity to lead your organization’s transformation into the future.
Don’t believe me? Take a moment and think about the most influential leader you’ve ever worked with. Did they need a committee of people to inspire change? Did they need a five step internal review process to lay out their ideas and energize the leadership team to move forward?
Of course they didn’t. You don’t either.
Today is your day. Get started.
Thanks for being here.
