Executives face the challenge of providing support to a very diverse workforce and a significantly
challenged leadership during a time of unprecedented change and heightened global competition. To compound matters, we are often asked to do this with limited funding, not enough
qualified people, and what often amounts to tolerance rather than engagement by the individuals in our companies who are our clients.
In short, as HR and OD Professionals, we serve
not only as guidance counselors, policy police and personnel caretakers, we must monitor the heart, sound and sometimes, the conscience of our organizations. And we do this without the authority
to make line decisions. Instead, we do our jobs indirectly, offering support and encouragement, introducing new competencies and beliefs and exercising political influence.
Clearly this is not an easy task. Nor is it one that our academic and professional training prepares us for adequately. One does not find courses on 'Demanding What You Need' or 'Managing the Heart & Soul of Your Company'
on the curricula of most universities. Words like 'conscience', 'integrity' and 'love'
do not often show up in course materials. Nor do we hear much about the need for those of us who support others to renew, re-balance and support ourselves.
A Program That Addresses These Essential Competencies
While we recognize that doing this challenging job requires constant upgrading of current skills, exposure to new training modalities, and the ability
to manage change, we also recognize that serving needs of today's complex companies requires something more. We call this something
'Mastering the Inner Game'.
What is this 'Inner Game'? 20 years of experience with thousands of HR
and OD professionals from some of the world's leading organizations has shown us that success depends on soft skills as well as other
professional competencies, on our ability to keep our hearts engage, stay in balance, redefine personal visions and core values, and stay in
touch with the emotional pulse of our organizations. It is also essential for us to begin the process or re-educating our organizations and redefining our roles and responsibilities.
In short, to borrow a term from Stephen Covey, we must find a way to "sharpen the saw" while dealing with the enormous daily challenges of helping today's companies remain stable, profitable and humane.
