There are many good HR professionals. And a few great ones. What sets the second group apart? They’re strategic HR leaders who can stride confidently into any CEO’s office or boardroom to talk ROI metrics and demonstrate how their programs drive growth for the enterprise as a whole. They’re comfortable speaking the language of front-line teams and finance chiefs alike. These HR leaders are much harder for organizations to find and highly valued when they do.

Teaching is not an isolated event during which one person speaks and the other listens. Teaching is most effective when both the teacher and the student are jointly involved in the discovering and learning processes.
