What is Leadership

When the world has moved from "Survival of Fittest" to the " Survival of Fastest" ,I would rather say " Excellence of the Competent " to the " Excellence of the Noisy" it becomes a clear internal war for many who believes in few ideologies like values,ethics,letting go of Individual credits for the team,Inclusive Growth etc.Time and again both in professional life and personal life every individual faces lots of challenges  when someone wants to live by these in practical life.Time and again many asked me what is leadership according to me and I always say " Its being a Role Model" .I thought I should dive deep more and highlight few points here for the benefit of the people who asked me this question time and again as I left the question unanswered.
Firstly one of the most important leadership quality is " Ethics". If one individual alters everything to come to the limelight , in spite of strict standards and governing laws…

"Taruna"m- One Day of our member

Its interesting that when I started this Chennai HR forum with social intent I was unaware that there are so many like minded good hearts doing lots of activities which is not brought to light.On a casual chat with Ms Taruna one of the active participant of our group she was sharing that she is a frequent visitor to orphanages and on that particular day she spent whole day in "Nalmanam" an NGO in Villivakkam. Immediately I was shocked and it put me to shame though I have been involving myself in such activities I missed to write a few words about Ms Taruna on her visit.She has spent whole day with the kids there ,enabled them to learn and helped them in a lots of fun and learning activities.Ms Taruna Hinduja is the Head-HR / Training of SPI Cinemas and a good friend of mine who reciprocates lots of similarities in thought process when it comes to hard work,social intent,corporate loyalty etc.

On behalf of chennai HR forum and all the active good hearts I would like to congr…

INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS

INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS
Traditionally, IR is  a pluralistic in outlook and covers not only the relations between employer and employee but also the relations between employer and unions and between them and the state. However, in the last two decades IR as become more specific to the study and practice of Trade unionism, Collective bargaining, Labour Management relations. Human Resource Development is seen as a separate, largely distinct field that deals with non-union employment relationships and the personal practices and policies of employers.   Organizations especially those who are in manufacturing have to ensure that both IR and HR are treated as critical and over lapping component of their Human Resource Strategy
Has IR was merely seen as adherence to labour laws and helping organisations stay compliant?   The  evolution of large and medium industries,  employing thousands of employees in multi-product, multi-plant, multinational settings, unions continue to play vital role in matt…

What makes Great Work Places?

It is natural for all of us to dream to get job in great  workplaces, as we spend majority of conscious hours at work.  Great workplaces,  empowers its people. Demonstrates an affection towards organisation and develop a desire to stay with the organisation.
What makes great workplaces ? Research  proves, “more money doesn’t make employee happier, nor cosy office premises”.   It is the “Leaders”, who  play a crucial role in bringing up  great workplaces to work, with the trust and  commitment he demonstrate  among the employees of all ranks. This facilitates employees to develop a trust towards their Leaders and develop a desire to stay with the organisation despite opportunities to work elsewhere. Take an extra effort and engage in behaviours that contribute to business success.
This attitude will tend to lead maximum job satisfaction i.e I like my work and I do it well with maximum job contribution ; I help my organisation to achieve the goals. They are enthused to use their talents a…
