As strategic leaders within a company, HR professionals need to be adept at developing leadership talent. The skills and talents of entry-level employees are drastically different than mid- and senior-level employees, particularly with respect to leadership abilities. HR professionals need to ensure that as employees move up in their organization, they develop the skills needed to be effective leaders. This is especially the case in today’s labor market which is undergoing a generational shift. As senior managers retire, it’s essential to develop a generation of new leaders who can continue to guide and support organizations. It’s not enough for HR leaders to simply hire the best employees; they must provide ongoing coaching and support to help them become talented and empowered leaders. Coaching and empowering leaders to do their best work can give organizations a strategic advantage.
