You get along with people, right? That's why you're an HR director, putting the "human" back into "resources." And you bask in the glory of fixing things in the chaos that is the workplace. Employees thank you for settling disputes without (too much) bloodshed. They praise you for coming up with the plan to reorganize departments so each one is functioning beautifully. They worship you for easing out that lunatic boss who didn't understand the meaning of sexual harassment until you gave him the pink slip. You are here to serve, and that's a glorious thing.
