Breakthroughs can happen in an instant, or they can be the result of a long, difficult process. They show up in many different forms – a connection, an opportunity, a new idea – and then allow us to move forward with greater ease or clarity. Breakthroughs are those distinct moments when the answer becomes clear, the picture comes into sharper focus, and we get it.
I believe our profession, human resource management, is at one of these breakthrough moments when business leaders get it and truly understand that great HR makes great organizations.
We also need those moments throughout our careers. Read this issue of HR Magazine to learn how #SHRM16 keynoter Sal Khan went from giving free online math tutorials to reinventing education.
We cannot predict these opportunities that launch us forward. However, we can position ourselves to get to the next level in our careers, at our organizations and as a profession. This year, there is no better place to do this than at the Society for Human Resource Management 2016 Annual Conference & Exposition (#SHRM16), to be held June 19-22 in Washington, D.C.
There is simply no HR learning, sharing or developmental opportunity in the world bigger than #SHRM16. I hope to see you there.
