  • Balancing Professionalism and Kindness

    Posted by Raghav Mehra on May 24, 2023 at 11:15 am

    As an HR professional, it is crucial for me to exhibit politeness and gentleness when interacting with individuals in my workplace. However, I have found that the professional realm often demands a certain level of diplomacy, regardless of personal preferences or feelings towards others. This has led to some stress and confusion for me. I am uncertain about the specific skills and behaviours I should develop to excel as an HR professional while maintaining kindness and politeness. I would greatly appreciate guidance on the essential skills and behaviours I should cultivate to become a better HR practitioner in terms of fostering a positive and considerate work environment.

    As an HR professional, it’s admirable that you value kindness and politeness in your interactions. Balancing diplomacy and fostering a positive work environment can be challenging, but there’s a crucial skill and behavior to focus on effective communication. You can express yourself clearly, actively listen, and show empathy by honing your communication skills. Remember to use a respectful tone, choose your words carefully, and pay attention to non-verbal cues like body language and facial expressions. These practices will help you create a respectful and considerate atmosphere in the workplace.

      I agree with you. Developing emotional intelligence will greatly benefit you in navigating sensitive situations with tact and empathy. By recognizing and managing your own emotions and understanding the emotions of others, you can respond effectively. Additionally, demonstrating trustworthiness is crucial. Respect confidentiality when individuals confide in you, safeguarding sensitive information, and only disclosing it on a need-to-know basis, following legal and ethical guidelines.

Consistently practicing some skills and behaviors will help you excel as an HR professional while maintaining kindness and politeness in your interactions.
