Your ONE True Passion in HR — How Do You Find It? Do You Even Need One?

QUESTION: 

I’ve read many of your articles and books and I largely agree with most of them.

However, there’s one thing I’m struggling with. You talk a lot about finding your ONE true passion in HR.

Well, I haven’t found mine!

I’ve been a HR senior director for over ten years and a generalist so I’m a jack of all trades — and love it.

I also love my team and my organization.

But I haven’t yet found my ONE light switch yet — my ULTIMATE CALLING in HR – that ONE BIG THING I’d like to specialize in or become an expert at.  

Do I need one?

If so, I’d like to find it.

Any advice on this?

Thanks,
Carole
