"If you want something you've never had, you must be willing to do something you've never done"
Connect your company's vision, values, and people in a cohesive and logical path forward. Be chrystal clear. Clear is kind; unclear is unkind (Brene' Brown). Identify those who want to do more and help them get there. Retain the best, but don't be afraid to develop the rest.
Knowing who can lead next
Looking through a big picture lens, who "gets" the culture? Who connects with others? Who has followers? Who understands one size does not fit all across all company businesses? Who understands why you do what you do, not just what you do? That talent sect is your target audience.
General HR Staples
HR's technical role
HR must ensure the company is compliant, ethical, and above reproach. It must be a business partner, aligned with the goals and the culture of the company. HR can no longer afford to be the clipboard-carrying police waiting for someone to make a mistake. If you are not adding to the solution, you are causing a problem.
Creating a Great Workplace
No dread on Sunday Night
Creating a great workspace is about caring, respect, and trust. It is about realtionship building. Leaning in and listening is core. Without relationships, there can be no effective empathetic leadership.

Live Your Best Work Life Manifesto
1. We believe in the kind of courage where we are afraid to ask an unintelligent question, but we do it anyway.
2. We believe that genuine caring, respect and trust are the foundation of all great relationships and connections, which are the essential elements of leadership.
3. We believe the best learning is discovered in failure.
4. We believe that passionate, thirsty workers are the best kind and who can learn anything.
5. We believe in understanding the cosmic “why” of what we do every day.
6. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to do the work they are best at and they love.

9. We believe in listening generously until the other person feels heard.
10. We believe in getting at facts even if the “story” is interesting.

13. We believe everyone is worthy of, and valued for, stating their well-founded opinion.
14. We believe that no one can ever say, “That’s not my job.” We are one heartbeat – no team member left behind.
