Hey Arsha - great to see this topic posted!!

Here is a quick note to get started...

Let's not discuss the GENERIC skills that are critical for any career. For example, attitude, self discipline, values, honesty, etc.

Let's focus on the SPECIFIC skills needed for success in HR career.

Looking forward to a rocking discussion!!

Let's wish all the best!!

Hi Ekta,

Totally agree to the points you have mentioned just to add on few skills to your points, a successful HR person needs to possess:-

1.) People Handling skills.

2.) He/She must be a Good Listener.

3.) Has to be a innovative thinker, should try to think out of the box.

4.) Has to be open to new ideas.

5.) Has to be a quick learner.

Hope these gives some clarity on the discussion.

Thanks and Regards

Hi,

According to me 5 key skills for any HR Professional are:

1. Be professional (in all sense :) ) and not to let emotional/friendship influence you/ your work
2. Passion and commitment towards your work
3. Assess and Analyse and then conclude
4. Right Attitude - without this skills, knowledge, experience etc doesn't work.
5. Be Self Critical

Hi All,

Agreed with all points add one more

Think Strategically

You need to tap the full range of your intelligence-and the brain power of your
staff-to maximize your contribution. Get in the habit of asking penetrating questions of your staff and giving them the time to research the answers. The more you ask, the more you-and they-will learn.
