No One Is Indispensable
How does this relate to HR? The moral of the story here is that no one is indispensable. Everyone can be replaced, even a great leading actor. I continually hear leaders and employees say, “They can’t get rid of me. I know too much and have very unique skills that can’t be replaced.” Everyone likes to know they are needed and valued and you are, but the truth is – your skills may be unique, but you can be replaced.
I often talk about having a set of tools to do your job. As you progress in your career, you gain more tools and your tool bag gets larger and more complete. Having a larger tool bag allows you to do more complex jobs and move into different and often larger roles within an organization.
