It’s human nature to resist change. With every day comes news of something ‘unprecedented,’ and often not in the ways we want to see change happening. As much as this impacts our personal lives, it also—of course—impacts the workplace.
What’s a CHRO to do as 2022 marches on?
Navigating ever-changing—and stagnant—COVID-19 mitigations
For offices that are choosing to go back to in-person facilities, return-to-work is in full swing. Making sure it’s a positive experience for everyone is a big task on CHROs’ shoulders; not to mention 74% of professionals think remote work will become standard, according to a study from Growmotely.
Whether your organizations’ workforce is in-person, remote, or hybrid, there’s an important step you may be missing.
Acknowledgement is the shift CHROs need
The second ‘A’ of the Four A’s of Conscious Leadership is Acknowledgement. Acknowledgement is all about getting comfortable with being uncomfortable—and what have the past few years been but uncomfortable?
Awareness is the shift from “I don’t know that I don’t know something” to “I know that I don’t know something,” thus creating an opportunity for choice to acknowledge.
By acknowledging changes and frustrations, you can empower your organizations’ leaders to:
- Shift from a fixed to growth mindset
- Embrace the challenge of learning and change
- Apply emotional intelligence in everyday situations
We all know it’s important for leaders to understand how their mindset may impact their perspective of how the team functions. So for CHROs, acknowledging change and navigating with flexibility can create a seismic shift in your organization.
The top CHROs across the nation are focusing on individual wellness
Considering all we’ve been through in the past two years, it makes sense that HRO World lists supporting individual wellness as a top concern for CHROs. The ongoing pandemic has elevated the role of the CHRO even further—often visibly helping CEOs manage and lead their organizations into the future.
This makes acknowledgement of present issues, day to day with an eye on the future, even more important.
