What words of advice and encouragement would you give to someone just starting out in HR?

Slow down and take the time to understand how your business works, the day-to-day work that the managers, employees, and leaders perform every day. This will greatly educate you, and make you relevant when you offer them support; you'll also have earned their trust by spending time on their side.
