It’s not just what we learn in books or on-the-job that makes us good solid human resources professionals; it’s also what we are made of. Our early beginnings, where we came from and how we grew up has a lot to do with how we work with and influence others on a day-to-day basis. It can have a significant influence on our performance and ability to connect with employees, managers, owners and other relationships related to our work.
The Free to Be movement has had a profound impact on the workforce. Free to Be kids have broken stereotypes, pursued new career paths, and have raised our children in an environment that is far more diverse and tolerant than in the past.
