To maximize productivity and profits and with the growing value of human capital in modern organizations, human resource professionals must become an integral part of organizational goal setting and goal attainment. In recent years, due in large part to the increasing numbers of knowledge workers and specialists in the work force, human resource managers must become an integral part of a company's executive management team. As such, human resource professionals must learn, understand and use leadership skills that in the past were more commonly used exclusively by top tier executives. This article lists key human resource leadership traits and responsibilities.
