Integrity. Ethics. The last two items on the list of Senior HR Competencies were so closely linked that I did them together. If you are good at one of them, chances are you’re going to be good at the other as well. The same goes the other way. If you’re terrible at one of them, you’ll most likely be terrible at the other, too. Hope you enjoyed the series!

Strategic thinking… For a human resources professional? Yep. It’s the second most important competency for senior HR leaders.
Today we’ll look at effective communication, the number one competency for senior HR leaders.
Today I’m kicking off a video series on the Top Five Senior HR Competencies.

Below you’ll find the intro video and links to the other 4 videos. Hope it’s beneficial to you!
