Having a human resources person, consultant or department for your company is definitely a bonus! Imagine being able to pass along the task of dealing with difficult situations between staff, questions about their career paths, and anything you’re not equipped to resolve in this area. You’re busy enough and HR is really not in your wheelhouse.
If having such a key person on your payroll isn’t in the cards right now, then you’ll need some skills to help you with what may arise. So, what do you need to do to be able to rise to the occasion? You need to learn how to become a leader so you can lead others.
