I’m just finished listening to a Connectle Con on Transforming HR with Perry Timms, Richard Westney, Gaylin Jee, Nathan Donaldson. What struck me was Perry Timm’s summarizing the conversation with what he called the beginning of a “manifisto” for transforming how HR professionals (or anyone) can help transform HR (or any function) to support the world of work:
- Curious experimenters
- Connecting storytellers
- Enablers of the new
- Self aware, small gain creators
- Share generously
- Scaffolding creators
- Purpose maximizers
- Values aligners
In reality these ideas are not new for me. I hope that doesn’t sound snotty but I have been playing in this space for a bit and feel like a lot of these things I have been working on by practicing social leadership and personal knowledge mastery. What is new for me is the realization that somewhere along the line I just stopped. I got busy with work and I let go. I got stuck. I stopped transforming.

There are many wonderful things I heard in listening to this conversation, but the one that screamed the loudest from deep inside was that I need to find a way to get unstuck, to dive back in and continue my practice as this is the main way I feel I will be able to transform (and disrupt) anything – including myself.
I would love any advice on ways to help me reengage. In return, you will have my gratitude and offer to support you next time you get “stuck.” Leave a comment below or reach out on twitter.
