Transitioning from an HR Operational mindset into a value-added HR Management Style.

  • First, you have to understand how your team dynamics have changed and evolved as you have developed into your leadership role. Awareness of changing team dynamics is the first step in preserving the correct level of job roles in your team.
  • Next, you have to embrace career clarity which involves understanding the congruency between your job duties and those of your team. If you are doing work that needs to be delegated to your team, then take the time to mentor the junior HR person on how to do the task. It may be a short time pain for a long time goal. With the added bonus of mentoring and guiding your junior team members.
  • The final step is growing into your leadership role by understanding the true depth of your impact and contributions. This can include HR professionals on the team who may need more input or support than what you can provide and you need to look at other development avenues. It also includes recognising that you might not be as involved in certain aspects of the HR deliverables as you would like. You only have an infinite amount of time!
