Leading an HR team is a complex series of tasks. Not only are you driving value for the business and caring for the employees, but you’re also running a team of HR pros dedicated to improving the organization as well. Stepping into any new position can be a challenge, and taking on a role as an HR executive at a new firm is no picnic. However, having the right mindset can take you a long way.
In today’s interview, Ben speaks with Michael Stambaugh, Chief Human Resources Officer for HJF, about his priorities and challenges on the eve of his first year on the job. The conversation covers the critical tip for how to be a great HR leader (hint: you have to be willing to go to bat for the needs of both your team AND the organization), what it’s like selecting and implementing HR technology as a new leader, and how to earn the respect and credibility you need to get the job done.
