Dear Friends, According to you, what are the three skills that are required in a HR professional to be successful in his or her role? What makes a great HR? Share your thoughts and ideas. Sanjeev
Hi Sanjeev
Greetings for the Day...
I personally feel the most important skill for any HR professional is
*"People handling"*.
Along with that he or she should be a *good team leader and must be an *effective communicator.

According to me 1.good listener and speaker 2.Strong Analysis skills 3.Tolerance shah khan
Vrushali, I believe 'people handling' is very vague and broad term. Can you please explain this part?
Also, I also believe that being a “team-leader” is not a primary skill. There are limited numbers of HR people in leadership roles of any company. It is not very often that we hear about HR professionals as CEO of companies or HR professionals in the board-room.
Please explain this as well.

Sanjeev, Team leader it doesnt mean you should be a CEO or be a part of board room.
To lead your team, to tel your staff that you are with them, motivate them at work level, understand their problems,resolve it all these things comes under a team leader.
Gandhiji, Tilak never studied HR or not being a part of any board room or not a CEO. But they were great team leaded.A great potential to influence on people.Similarly now a days every dept staff having some dissatisfaction about their senior or reporting head such as production,marketing. In such a situation only HR who could understand them and act as a leader...I hope now its clear to you.
In case of people handling its a skill which differ from HR to HR . In my organization it is a very important skill for me. Might be not necessary for your org.

Vrushali, I only asked for elaborating on "people handling". What do you handle in people? :) :) :)
Also Vrushali, I think the core problem is not in leadership skills or the ability to lead the team....the problem is in seeking the role of team-lead without understanding the basics. Seeking leadership position within 0.5 to 1 years of experience. Therefore, leadership skill is required...only after certain level of experience and not at the beginning of career.
Dear Sanjeev,
These are the 3 main skills which i feel a good HR should need in todays scenario.
1. Recruiting & Interviewing Skills. - Right person for right job(Which is a challenge in todays scenario) - He should be Operations/Business HR.
2. Employee grievances Handling - HR should be proactive and should know how to solve the issues or upcoming issues. He should be easily reachable by the employee.
3. Employee Engagement - It is not only Fun & Games. How you correlate it with his career progression, his personality development, Work life balance, Integrity etc.

Dear All,
I am facing some problem regarding people handling in organisation.
My seniors says an HR must not be friendly with employees,an Hr should
not sit and lunch with them,they believe that doing so an Hr loose its Values.
but i believe that HR must be good at employee relation, HR must be a link (coordinator)
between employees and employer.
Kindly let me know what behavior,attitude must an HR carry?
I am working as HR Executive for 10 month experience.

hi Sanjiv
I dont think that to be a good leader u need to gain some experience first. Leadership comes from within due to situations, no concern you have started your job 1 day back or 10 years back.
And a good HR should consist a quality of being in system & bring others in system for smooth working of whole organisation so that 1 could say ya working of this or that company is best & that is the real appreciation & success of an good & successful HR.
