How to Successfully – and Suddenly! – Transition to Your New Role as HR Manager

A lot of people who move up the career ladder in human resources come from individual contributor roles like payroll administrator, HR specialist or generalist, benefits administrators, FMLA coordinators, and administrative assistants. These are important roles; however, they are different in their scope of responsibilities, level of authority, and level of influence within the organization. When you make a career transition to a management position, the core competencies of your job change dramatically. And, without knowing how to shift behavior to perform well in a leadership role, the tendency is to continue working the same way – just with more tasks to do.

The reality is that many HR professionals are simply thrown into the role of management without much preparation. Here is how a typical promotion happens in HR: “Well, Sarah, we’re going to be losing Jackie in about two weeks, and since you know payroll and a little about benefits, I’m sure you can pick up the HR stuff and take over Jackie’s role as HR manager.”

Sound familiar?

If so, it may be quite difficult to perform at the level expected of you in your new position. HR managers who find themselves in this situation know that it can quickly lead to a lot of anxiety, frustration, challenges, conflicts and even job burnout. 

Moving into leadership can be uncomfortable, as it is a bit like entering a box in which pressure is exerted on all sides. When a leader goes to work every day, on top of the box is the boss or business owner and the higher-ups who create “top down” pressure to get things accomplished. From the sides are pressures from peers who also need things accomplished, but also may have other agendas that don’t align with HR’s. And, lastly “bottom up” pressure is exerted by direct reports who need clear direction, prioritization of their work, coaching, feedback, mentoring, help resolving conflicts and professional development – and the list goes on. Working effectively in the “box” requires different skills than working as an individual contributor, as your performance is measured on much more than just your own accomplishment of tasks.

In this informative session you will learn what it takes to work in management from experienced HR leader Natalie Ivey, who has more than 25 years of experience in successfully running departments and leading others. You’ll also learn how to identify the areas in which you need professional development, so that you can improve your skills right away and get on the road to being a top performer!
