I just had lunch with one of the most impressive human resource professionals I have ever met. Why do I say this? Because he isn’t an HR person. Hang with me here…he has an HR title, and HR is his responsibility. But, here’s the magic – he is a business person functioning in an HR role. This is uncommon. He “gets it”. He has perspective. He sees the bigger picture. He is strategic. He is an executive. Ahh….how refreshing.
