Choosing less to be more in a busy world

What we covered

Paul Dickinson from the Lattitude Consultancy explored how we can examine our own approach to HR and ways in which we can re-focus and heighten our impact; how we can ‘choose less to be more’.

  • The identity crisis taking place in many HR teams and how our desire to ‘prove our worth’ is sabotaging our credibility and ambitions.
  • Why adopting a mindset of ‘bravery’ and ‘courage’ blocks our ability to have great conversations with key decision-makers.
  • How your HR expertise can actually block your ability to solve problems and why it’s helpful to know when this is happening.

What is Career Cushioning?

| Natural HR | No Comments
In a bleak economic outlook plagued by inflation, rising interest rates and uncertain hiring practices, the concept of ‘career cushioning’ has entered more into HR’s consciousness.
