Show Notes

On this episode of Honest HR, Callie's guests are HR pros Jon Thurmond and Wendy Dailey, from The HR Social Hour Podcast to discuss networking and communication. People react differently to who you are as a person vs. who you are as a professional. They may be intertwined, but sometimes you resonate more as a person than a professional. Some people connect with puppies and others with comic books. How important—and what does it mean—to define your voice as a professional and as a whole person?

Your brand is your reputation, you can blend your personal and professional interests. You're a person and a person who does HR. 

Key episode takeaway: "You need to be OK with your voice evolving. Who you start out as sharing can be difficult, but when you know where you want to be, and you find what you're comfortable talking about that's when you start to become successful."
