HR Isolation

HR people have to be chameleons. We have to be able to adapt to our surroundings. It’s a delicate balance — being approachable and removed. Being a culture representative and culturally adjacent. Being business-minded and empathetic. Being a mediator and a judge. Being a listener and a talker. It requires the ability to understand a certain point of view, then determine and understand the opposite point of view, and ultimately, make a conclusion and set the best path forward. It can be hard to “change your color” day after day, particularly in such an isolating role. How do you handle the chameleon aspect of your role? What do you find most challenging about having to adapt? What do you find the most rewarding?
