I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼

What got you fired or almost fired?
You’re constantly showing up for everyone else, but who’s showing up for you? I started an initiative to coach HR/people leaders because I know what it’s like to be doing all the things for everyone else with little support or focus on your own well-being, growth and development. It’s a lonely game! I’d be delighted to create the space to make you a priority. Would love to offer a free session, or simply connect: https://www.chrisrollins.me/peopleleaders.

Hey guys! Our teammate is going through a pretty tough time, I wasn’t sure if this would be appropriate to post, but seeing as though this is a sales group, and my man Braxton is a sales beast... I thought I could try posting and apologize later. If you can give please do, if you can share please, if you can pray please, please do. We’re so close to getting his expenses covered, and after all he’s done to show up to our team.. I’m trying to show up to him in my fullest capacity. Thank you!!
(1/2) Is it just me or are we doing a lot more latching onto culture vs. creating culture these days? Everything is a reboot (ET, Home Alone), a partnership (Fortnite, Netflix), or depends... (cont’d)

Is there a concensus on weather the 200k mba cost is a positive or negative ROI for those that are already in a post-mba role and will not get much of a pay bump from the mba? Assuming the post mba salary will be pretty much the same as if the person stayed for another 2yrs
After nearly 20 years in the military serving in T&E and HR roles, I’m considering moving on and have been conducting lots of research into consulting. BS, MA, and SPHR cert - no MBA. I’m looking for suggestions or advise about transitioning. DC Metro area is likely landing spot.
I often find my work cut down by partners. The part that gets cut down normally is what I consider to be the best part - the part that would change one's mind or one that would answer a question in client's mind. Does that mean I need to improve my writing? Or would I become a plain vanilla by "improving"? A quote comes to mind - all good writers write alike, but all great writers write differently. I don't claim to be a great writer, but wouldn't want to undermine the potential.

COVID has had a silver lining for me, reduced outside food and alcohol consumption. Was a heavy drinker with half a fifth on even weeknights, if not more. Now once in a fortnight or longer and just couple of drinks at most. Lost weight too! Used MJ as alternative. Any similar or opposite experiences?
Unemployed during COVID-19
I received an offer from consulting company for project model meaning to work for the same client due to a multi year engagement. Overall, I am getting around 50K jump from current salary which includes signing bonus as well base. My current employer calls themself management consulting but in reality its staff augmentation with bench time. This new opportunity does not have bench time but as I said pay is good with again staff augmentation. I am confuse if I should accept this offer or not?
