Ask an Expert: Nikki Hill Coaching & Consulting LTD on how new HR leaders can make an instant impact in a remote environment

By | Human Resources, Leadership, Mental Health

In the process of transitioning into a new role, almost half (46% to be exact) of executives across all functions struggle under the pressure of making a lasting impression. However, this only results in underperformance. While we focus on HR leaders, their downfall will not stem from their lack of skills or experience, but because they haven’t got the opportunity to build the right support network and prepare for the changeover due to the pandemic. As we all know, remote working has caused all leaders to rethink – to tweak, test and improve existing formulas for a more favourable outcome….
