Situational Judgment

The ability to derive practical insight applicable to specific circumstances.

  • I agree with situational judgement being part of the 'professional' skill set. I do think it could be worded in a more accessible way in terms of how it is described.

  • what would your suggestion be?

  • I agree with situational judgement it will help more skill.

  • Providing 'practical insight' is not necessarily 'professional': Perhaps something like: in order to provide a resolution of the issue' or: 'derived from knowledge and expertise'. something more is needed. Ideas?

  • To provide value-add practical insights that are relative to roles, I would suggest most HR Professionals need to have a rounded business knowledge, a keen sense of data analytics and huge amount of relationship / stakeholder skills.

  • We know that HRM is both a science and an art and as such; HR professionals must be able to solve problems using evidence- based approaches or tecniques but also, they constantly model their practice to specific situations or circumstances. This, I think requires that one is able to generate insights from other experiences, skills or sources.

  • It is not necessary that we should have a practical insight of the situation. sometime without the practical insight too due to our potential of thinking ability we have to take situational judgements

    We face many wide and varied situations in the people business, therefore our judgement in each goes to the heart of our professional and personal credibility.

  • To penetrate intuitively into a situation is a must have skill, to be naturally intuitive helps.

  • Absolutely agree with situational judgement.  It is so relevant in today's profession. The ability to be flexible to your audience needs, achieving 'buy-in' and the ability to think on your feet is developed over time as one acquires more experience of dealing with both good and more challenging situations of working with different people and organisations....and I guess it is not a skill that is easily acquired.

  • I very much believe that situation judgement is a key contributing factor as it allows us to be proactive and mindfully present in a situation
