Lead Differently to Stay Effective
With events of the past 18 months driving new areas of responsibility, new crises, and strategic and organizational priorities for many CHROs, we asked a handful of leaders who have navigated particularly effectively to reflect on what they’ve done differently to keep their own and their teams’ heads above water. When each day or week presents a different set of challenges, what did you have to do differently or stop doing in order to succeed as the Chief of Everything Else?
Modernize the CHRO Role
In the CHRO role, we can’t be all things to all people, but there are three areas where we can have the biggest impact:
Leading: serving as a change leader for the company’s talent strategy, culture and the growing portfolio of change projects.
Operating: running the HR operational machine.
Coaching: serving as an informal, in-house executive coach to senior leaders.
