My experience in Human relations management

I have enjoyed the Human Resources profession. My experience has not been Human Resource Management but Human relations management, and I have lived every moment truly, to the brim. Every individual that comes across you through out your career is special. Every moment of your career is memorable. When you roll back in time, standing at the peak of your career,you savor the past..!Unless you share a personal rapport with each individual, you do not understand the human dynamics. I have been very fortunate to have worked with a varied sector of businesses and people from different nationalities and cultures. It is not easy for teams to work in new and multi-cultural environment, where opinion clashes are common. It helps when all managers are good people managers, besides being domain specialists. The first important trait of an HR manager, that experience taught me, is to develop people skills amongst leaders. By doing that, you are developing multiple human resource specialists in the organization, each one managing his/her teams efficiently on hard and soft skills.
I observed that, what most people appreciate, is - Clarity in business/individual objectives, fairly decent work environment and an understanding superior. Of course, it is a feel good factor, if there is a clear career path, fairly decent compensation and opportunity to voice opinions.
An interesting observation is that if you wish to implement change, there is resistance only when things are not fairly transparent. Most stake holders appreciate a direct dialogue, free from sugar coated and misleading words. Most change catalysts are people who anticipate benefits, post change. I will write on Change Management and my experience with various business models, in my forthcoming blogs.
