What makes an effective HR professional...

June 20, 2017

ABILITY TO LISTEN – to your clients, to your colleagues, to your senior team, to the competition. This is the only way to ensure that the advice you give is accurate, relevant and targeted. If you don't understand the problem, you can't be part of the solution.

 

INTEGRITY – demonstrating that you can be trusted to listen without breaking a confidence. Building trust is one of the best ways to improve rapport with business leaders and, through that, helping to deliver what needs to be delivered. If they don't trust you, they won't tell you, and you won’t be able to help.

 

RESILIENCE – being strong enough to accept constructive criticism, to take advice, and to change things where they need to be changed. Learn from all your experiences! 

 

FORWARD THINKING – businesses cannot afford to stand still, this is why HR professionals need to be proactive, innovative and to have the ability to strategise. Having great technical expertise is good, but it's not enough. It is vital to get out there and network, be creative and keep it new, fresh and exciting.

 

NEGOTIATOR – not everyone in the organisation in which you work will have the same views. In fact, it is critical to business success that they don't. Great progress, new ideas, and exciting developments come from employees who challenge each other. But someone needs to navigate this often rocky road to encourage and support cohesion, partnerships and, ultimately, results. An HR professional who can mediate and build rapport but also challenge is not to be underestimated.

 

COMMUNICATOR – as people are the key element in most businesses, a talent for being able to communicate with them lucidly and positively (both individually and collectively) is absolutely crucial to success.
