We HR people like to talk about THE LEARNING CURVE 🙂
What we mean is, how fast can you swim in cold water to make sure you keep warm ? Ok ok – that’s not all we mean, but also. We of course also want to see HOW you adapt to new challenges. How long does it take you to adapt to a new environment and “manage” the new situation? Do you have a “portfolio” of leadership capabilities to cope with the new situation?
What I wonder is, why do we often try to be strong and get it done on our own ? What do we try to prove and what do I try to evaluate as an HR expert? Looking into the future, collaboration and agility (sorry, not a fan of the word but it somehow nails it…) will be key I believe and will be much about WE instead of ME.
I don’t know, I am having a week full with ???? about concepts of people development.
Mentoring, Coaching and having people in my life I can fully trust has worked for me over the last 10 years and I truly believe, I would not be where and who I am without these people in my life. Knowing that they “can see me” and genuinely want the best for me has been extremely (extremst for my Swiss friends 😉 ) powerful for me.
HR quo vadis? I do not know yet, but I know I will explore new paths and curve my learning 😉
