IR: Bell the cat inside the bag!

Due to our own specific physical constructions, developed through the combinations of about 69 natural elements in varied proportions, the genesis of five broader approaches reconcile with the five natural orientations we are living with.

IR: Fundamentals and aberrations

Honest communication touches the heart directly.

IR: ‘Dil Se Re’!

I have seen many organisations bleeding profusely, due to mistrust, non-cooperation and lack of mutual understanding and strengthening. This is basically because of egocentrism and immaturity.

IR: Why do trade unions fail?

In industrial relations, the management must own the responsibility first, followed by the union leader then the worker, and the government at last.

IR: How ego states impact industrial relations

The personal ego state of the stakeholder individuals can make or mar the desired industrial relations.

IR: Leaders and managers by chance?

A majority of the IR managers and trade union leaders are not aware of the legal, behavioural, business and conceptual aspects of unionisation—labour, productivity, benefits, IR, leadership, role modelling, discipline and business management which is why they have a short time perspective to resolve an issue.

Why wholehearted appreciation is key to efficient IR

Most of the employers and executives have habitually developed apathy towards unions, trade union leaders and unionisation.

IR: In between politics and ego

Politics coupled with inflated ego is a deadly combination in any situation and it's rampant in industrial relations. 

Perceptual Error: Missing link of Union-Management relationship

Any right can only be demanded in return for duty, and that has to be understood by the employees as well as the management.

IR: Why trade union leaders need a knowledge upgradation

Due to this lack of awareness and thoughtfulness, trade unions waste their energy in fighting a wrong battle against the well aware battery of staff, consultants and lawyers of employers.

The ‘cause and effect’ of IR

Just play along with cause & effect, gravity, flow thermodynamics, electromagnetism and time. You will not only feel motivated, but appear motivated. 

How to groom workers at the shop floor?

Erikson’s theory of child development can be applied to Industrial Relations.

Four dimensions of industrial relations

IR is simply the science and art of togetherness. Learn about the appropriate length, width, depth and time for industrial relations.

IR management needs to be professionalised

It is important to build a charming professional culture in an organisation. Professionalism is nothing but swimming in tandem with the natural rhythm of ‘cause and effect’.

Why self-discipline is a must in IR

Many IR managers feel that these manipulations are necessary to manage people in varied situations, with varying needs, egos and greed. But it is absurd to believe that such manipulations and negativity can yield positive results.

How vested interests mar industrial relations

The prime vested interest of company executives is to rule at will – egocentrism. However, the vested interest of the union leaders is to satisfy their social and self-esteem needs. These are the raw motives, to overcome which and to develop behavioural compatibility between both the agencies, two measures need to be established—a defined transactional system, and constant interpersonal communication. 

Can we build-up a productive and sustained industrial relations?

Hypocrisy is what is observed these days, in the name of decency and tolerance, and the key source of most IR trouble.

Intolerance for Industrial Relations

Intolerance grows to the level of incapacity in dealing with the four dimensions of universal phenomenon—need, greed, support and ignorance.

IR Mindset: Why should we work for the company?

Each individual works to satisfy his own need, greed and ego. Each person plays a role in the company’s fitness and has to be paid for his contribution to the same, proportionately. 

Why does Darwin’s theory fail in ‘Industrial Relations’?

When Darwin explored ‘survival of fittest’, the ‘emotional intelligence’ was not a developed subject in the new-world. Now, we are very successfully dodging the growth fitness with our hypocrisy.

How Maslow’s theory works in Industrial Relations?

IR managers need to align workers and their leaders to productive co-existence at all the levels of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.

Can law ensure a happy & prosperous industrial relations?

Industry laws are meant to make us behave right in a social and natural context, but the trouble begins when someone starts behaving in an unsynchronised way.

Are we not fed up of preaching?

No sermon tells us to define a list of values for others. We should practice what we preach and leave it to those interested to follow.
