 Why don't Human Resources Leaders follow their own advice?

Seattle, Washington – July 29, 2013

"I am constantly amazed by how many internal Human Resources experts fail to invest in their own development despite dedicating their careers to developing others. It is time for HR to start taking their own advice to accelerate their personal growth," said Val Wright, President of Val Wright Consulting.

As people development experts, you would expect the Human Resources industry to be full of distinctive, motivated, inspired and self-aware leaders that invest in their own development. Unfortunately, that is often not the case.

In her keynote speech "What will be your legacy? How to be remembered long after you have left" at the Entertainment Software Human Resources Association conference last month, Val Wright shared what sets apart exceptional performers from their peers; they carve out time for development, create concrete actions and follow through.

Val Wright shared the top three reasons HR leaders do not practice what they preach:

• A desire to serve others at the expense of themselves

• Getting lost in tactical execution

• Failing to creating a concrete personal development plan

Val launched Val's Mentor Accelerator for those serious about their development. Participants will increase their reputation as a strategic HR partner, transform their current work to be more impactful and become the organization expert most only dream about. Val's Mentor Accelerator enables HR professionals to become the best HR Leader their company has ever known.

Val Wright is also available for interview on this topic.
