- As HR continues to evolve its role from a compliance to service to creative focus, key skills that will arm HR well are coaching and consulting.
- Approach problem solving with a curious mindset, so we can expand thinking beyond the current way of working.
- Ask the right questions to help business leaders gain greater clarity and unlock their own answers within.
