It’s no secret that a majority of HR leaders are feeling burnt out. Too often, their dreams of doing high-impact, culture-shifting work are quickly squashed with low-level administrative work, being disrespected and dismissed by executives, and bouncing from fire to thankless fire without being adequately appreciated. On top of that, many HR leaders find themselves with increased responsibilities, without the resources to go along with it.

In the midst of this overload, Adam Weber, Chief Evangelist of 15Five and host of the HR Superstars Podcast, has talked to a handful of HR leaders who have decidedly different experiences than the majority. They’ve gained executive respect, don’t get blocked very often, are more proactive than reactive, and are doing the work they dreamed of doing when they got into HR.
