Perspective – 1 of 7 Enablers in our HR Development Framework


Perspective – what it isicon-perspective

Taking a step back.  Systematically gathering and updating the information that enables you to make robust decisions and engage others’ support.  Developing insight, and acting accordingly.

The successful outcomes of Perspective

  • People listen to you.  You present credible information and compelling arguments
  • The organisation benefits from your insight into the people aspects of what drives success in your business
  • You bring your knowledge to the table. Your specialist expertise, and contextual savvy, are of strategic as well as operational importance, eg. demographics and factors affecting engagement in your particular sector and economy
  • You are fully engaged in effective business decisions
  • You promote your HR agenda successfully
  • You are seen as an effective influencer, partner and leader in the business

Winning a fair hearing is about engaging our stakeholders in gathering and using high quality information.  Today we can equip ourselves much better to present our arguments clearly using hard data.  Being persuasive, however, is also behavioural, and built upon having effective relationships in place.  Making sound decisions in partnership with the business only comes from robust discussion.
