Ode to the Skeptical HR Leader

I am doing my job quite well; thank you.
I work from dawn to dusk.
And if I feel I can’t get ahead
I am good enough, I trust.
I am an HR leader.
And I do my job quite well.
I hear of new technology.
But I’ve been burned before.
I still feel the pain
Of the last big project we bore.
So what’s all this I hear:
Big data, artificial intelligence and social HR?
I’ve heard it all before.
Risk will tarnish my star.
Too much magic sauce
Promised for HR gain.
So what if I don’t have time
Change isn’t worth the pain.
I’m, an HR leader, I’ve heard it all before.
I was born to question,
I’m skeptical of the sell.
I’ll sit back and see what happens,
More time will surely tell.
I’m an HR leader
And I do my job quite well.
HR revolutions can wait

………until I have more time.
