In last month’s blog I wrote about how helping people strive is the sweet spot for HRPA Professional Development and about my appreciation for the Olympics (and now the Paralympics). This month’s word is focus—to narrow down/pinpoint, to get clarity. Although many of us have a big picture idea of where we want to go vis-à-vis our professional development, the many demands on our time make it difficult to pinpoint what we need to do and how we’re going to do it.
Getting focus was the starting point for HRPA’s Career GPS™ for HR Professionals. It’s a great tool for anyone wanting to benchmark and compare their HR experience against what is needed for their current job as well as any dream jobs they want. It’ll help you focus on relevant and realistic development goals. Check it out.
