I once knew an HR professional who wrote a book titled “The Only Thing Wrong with Human Resources Is the Humans.” As leaders, we must constantly deal with the human nature of things around us. Colleagues and employees will fail. Humans do that.

But what can you, as a leader, do to better navigate the human frailties that impact the work process? In this show, we’ll talk about these things. My guest is a career-long HR professional who has left corporate to become and advisor and coach to business leaders, helping them do more to embrace what it means to be human-centric as a leader.

My guest is Jeannie Moravits-Smith. Her background is in human resources. She’s a 30-year veteran of that specialty. Listen as she shares her life lessons and explains what managers and leaders can do to become more aware of human nature.

Key points:

  • Lead yourself first
  • What are you doing as a perpetual learner to hone your skills
  • Managing your working relationship with employees
  • Don’t assume anything – start asking
  • Pause, pinpoint, and pivot
