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.
We’re all stressed these days, trying to do everything perfectly, or reach too many goals in too few hours. In showing self-control, empathy, and courage, you show how truly powerful you really are.
