TRAINING WITH TOOLS THAT PROMOTE TEAMWORK IN HUMAN RESOURSES

A modern working environment consists of interdependent groups who collaborate for the company’s common benefit. But a team is more than a sum of persons and naming a group of people “team” is not enough to ensure that it will work as one.

The working team’s ability to function as one is a skill that does not automatically appear but it is earned through gradually maturing.

As teamwork we define the ability of a person to cooperate and function in harmony with the whole of a team towards a common goal.

AWARENESS-CONFRONTATION ON MATTERS OF HEALTH-SAFETY AT WORK: SEXUAL HARASSMENT, ADDICTION, VIOLENCE, MENTAL ILLNESS

The human resources of a company or organization are statistically speaking a sample representative, more or less, of the generate population of its origin.

In this group, all aspects of the population are correspondingly expected to appear, despite the hopes of most directors of human resources, who try to avoid this evil through exhausting interviews or assiduous specialized questionnaires.

So, incidents of sexual harassment, violence, addiction or mental illness will appear inside the company’s cycle of life and the alertness towards their confrontation is crucial in order to maintain a healthy and living working environment.

Interventions of awareness-confrontation of issues of working health aim to:

  • Inform-educate on identifying acts of:
    • Sexual harassment
    • Violence
    • Mental illness
    • Addiction
  • Training on how to ideally manage these acts and the employees involved
  • Properly managing the rest of the employees who are not involved in it but experience it through their working environment
  • Growing a feeling of safety in the working environment

Properly managing the ones involved in the act according the corporation’s culture.

TRAINING ON TRANSACTIONAL ANALYSIS AND APPLYING IT ON MANAGEMENT

The Canadian psychologist Dr. Eric Burn designed a new system of understanding the people’s interaction, which he called Transactional Analysis.

This system is designed to guide people through a simple way in understanding principles that define their interactions and improving the efficiency of their participation in their social environment.

Because of its simplicity and efficiency, Dr. Eric Burn’s system, applied quickly in the working environment in the past 35 years, mostly in the area of customer’s service but even more in training of leadership.

His system is based on the perception that every person interacts through one of the following aspects of his own self:

  • The parenting role
  • The adult role
  • The child role

When training for leadership, the goal is for the leader to function through the adult role and avoid traps:

  • of parenting role, meaning the guidance and protection of employees, something that as time goes by can appear even to the most experienced leaders
  • of the child role, meaning an extreme touch and relating with the employees, something that appears more often to inexperienced leaders.

The successful training on leadership through the adult role gives the leader the ability to keep the appropriate distance from the group, in order to point clear directions in tough times enabling him at the same time to stand by to the team as close as needed in order to inspire them.
