I’m not sure how HR thinks. I know how I think, and from what people tell me, I don’t think like a ‘normal’ HR person. One thing I really like, though, is to see how other pros think. I learn a lot from how maybe an engineer addresses an issue versus say how a Designer would address the same issue. I like to take aspects
of how other professionals think and incorporate those thought processes into how I think about HR. I think this helps me solve HR issues in ways that the business can grasp onto better.
Read the whole post over at The Tim Sackett Project (an FOT contributor blog).
If you Google “Tim Sackett” you’ll find our Tim, and a truck driver chaplain. Our Tim is NOT the truck driver chaplain, although how awesome would that be if he was!? He is a prolific writer in the HR and TA space who just happens to also run an Engineering and IT contract staffing agency (HRU Technical Resources) out of Michigan. He also writes every day at his own blog, the Tim Sackett Project. Weirdly, he’s known as an expert in workplace hugging, which was kind of cool years ago, but now seems painfully creepy, but we still love him and he’s fairly harmless. Tim is also on the board of the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP), lifetime Michigan State Spartan fan, husband to a Hall of Fame wife, 3 sons, and his best friend Scout. He also wrote a book with SHRM called The Talent Fix, you can find it on Amazon.
