The three day intensive at Samagra took on a different shape and some good things have come out of it: we had sent a formal invitation and schedule to a participant from Lucknow; He was a little late but he applied to his HR department and was granted permission, to take up this course whenever it is organised next at company cost..
It was very heartening- but, then, not so surprising. Communication is an important dimension of work place. Any HRD worth its salt, would do anything to promote better communication and self development of its human resource. So, what is our (PWS’s) role in all this:
1. We should accept that we are facing a communication problem-
2. That we can and want to do something about it..
3. We approach a senior colleague / HR unit with open-ness and request their help..
Finally, if there are more than one PWS, we should start a Self Help group on the premises- but of course not during the work hours.. I have discovered that working for other PWS selflessly is the best way of self therapy..
