James Sila is a very rare Human Capital professional/leader due to his clear command and expertise in the science of this discipline, combined with his artful care of the individuals he supports. He is able to see and attend to the needs of the business, while at the same time, not losing sight of talent as individual people with real dreams and aspirations. More than simply a "people broker", James is a leader who is truly invested in helping talented people to find the right opportunities to contribute optimal value and achieve their goals, in scenarios that create mutual benefit for the organization.
I have had the opportunity to work beside James in this space, observe his skill in this work, and have received personal and professional counsel from him as a practitioner and in my own professional journey. He is able to help cultivate clarity/understanding, challenge honestly, and identify opportunities through is skill in coaching and providing feedback. While being blessed to have been exposed to some great professionals in my career, I have not come across any Human Capital professionals more understanding, caring, and capable than James Sila.
