There is great opportunity in Great HR! – Don Phin (that’s me)
This website is about doing Great HR. That’s our work to be done. Where we put a dent in the universe. And the best thing about HR and what keeps me most motivated: it’s all about the people.
That’s right, HR is about serving people. Your goal is to be highly effective at serving people…in a way that utilizes your unique abilities and desires. It has to be your story of service.
But there are challenges- HR remains an under-valued opportunity at most companies. HR executives often feel overwhelmed, stressed and under-appreciated. And…they are usually poorly managed and underpaid on top of it all. As I ask workshop participants: “Have you asked or a raise in the last 12 months?”. One out of ten raise their hand at most. Not good.
I aim to change that.
It does not have to be this way. There is an amazing opportunity in Great HR for career, personal and financial growth! There are thousands of HR executives who get this. They are that rare top 10% that have autonomy, authority and responsibility. They are on the leadership team and get paid well for it too.
The top 15 HR executives all made more than $3,000,000 in 2018! 3 million in HR!
Let that rattle around in your brain for a minute.
But it must be you that seizes this opportunity. That’s because nobody is coming to save you, or recognize how amazing you are. This is a story of your own making.
And I can show you exactly how to reframe your HR story. How to move past your own fragility and self-imposed limitations to an anti-fragile, well-paid and kick ass HR career!
Doing this will allow us really take care of people…including ourselves.
I invite you to check out the Great HR Program online and if by chance I’m presenting in your city I’d love to see you there.
Here’s to doing Great HR!
