We hear a lot of HR professionals talking about wanting a seat at the table. Less often discussed is why we are sometimes excluded. It is painful to hear the criticisms. It is more painful to be unaware of, and therefore, unable to counteract them. Among the issues discussed in this session will be: avoiding overuse of HR lingo, overemphasizing consistency as opposed to thinking, failing to understand the business of your business, avoiding risk rather than managing it, and forgetting that human resources requires a delicate balance of law, business and humanity so we must learn to live comfortably in the gray. And, by the way, don’t ask for a seat at the table. Take it!
