Company leaders must carefully guide this new generation of workers as they grow within their positions through formal and informal advice. However, as researchers at Harvard Business School have pointed out, giving advice is more complicated than it appears. Advice—whether it be good or bad—guides the actions of those who receive it, and can therefore have major influence over your organization. And even for the most experienced leader, giving advice can also be a challenge. After all, how can you trust that what you have to say is relevant or meaningful?
Jan Ritter, VP of Workforce Systems for the Good Samaritan Society, is familiar with such challenges—people come to her for guidance all the time. In this video, she explains how receiving advice from her husband helped her be confident in her experience, which includes nearly 30 years working in HR. Based on that experience, Ritter says, she can now guide others.
