Was working on a webinar deck this morning related to this title. Here's what I came up with, take a look and let me know what you think. I'll share the webinar link when it goes live....
WHAT WORLD CLASS HR LOOKS LIKE
You know them – they’re the HR pros that make it look easy, flowing from meeting to meeting with style and grace – but not in an empty way. These HR pros look and sound great, but actually get things done as well. They’re loved by their peers on the leadership team, routinely talked about with equal parts fear and admiration, and seem to love what they do.
What makes these people a part of the ruling class in HR? I've got 15 attributes of the world class HR pro, broken down across the following DNA characteristics:
--The Ability to Be a Talent Agent – The best HR pros know that getting the best talent is key. We’ll show you how they do that as an individual recruiter, in how they build a recruiting function and build an employment brand.
--A Knack for Street-Smart People Development – Forgot the training department. The HR pros we look up to bootstrap their own training resources for both individuals and managers while serving up spend on development based on performance – always taking care of the top performers.
--Financial Chops that Rival PWC – The real players in HR budget with a purpose, are keenly aware of other department’s strengths and weaknesses from a P&L perspective and apply their FTE power in a direct relationship to financial strength and opportunity within the companies they serve.
--A Willingness to Jam All Transactions Down to Their Lowest Possible % - The greatest trick the devil ever played was making humans feel satisfied when they mow the grass. We’ll show you three ways the best HR pros counter this trait of humanity by ensuring the value of their team isn’t linked to transactions.
--The Ability to Say Yes AND the Skill to Negotiate Like a VP of Sales – We saved the best for last. Top HR pros know how to negotiate – we’ll show you two ways they excel at negotiation and cover how the ability to say yes inside your company is key to this strategy.
Does that sound like any HR pro you know? I hope so!
