RELATIONAL COM­PE­TENCE, SUS­TAIN­ING THE LIFE OF THE OR­GA­NI­ZA­TION

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

NENITA G. SALAS Ed.D

The old and passé highly au­to­cratic man­age­ment of peo­ple is not any­more at­tuned to day. The in­te­gra­tion of Emo­tional Quo­tient (EQ) and the Mul­ti­ple In­tel­li­gences of Howard Gard­ner redi­rected the be­hav­iour of school highly strin­gent and purely task-ori­ented be­hav­iour to peo­ple –ori­ented be­hav­iour.

Relational com­pe­tence is the cor­rect la­belling. Great at­ten­tion needs to be ac­corded to peo­ple in the or­ga­ni­za­tion which will build the con­nec­tion be­tween and among the or­ganic mem­bers of the or­ga­ni­za­tion. The or­ga­ni­za­tion has to be kept liv­ing not by fear and in­tim­i­da­tion but by qual­ity of pro­fes­sional and even per­sonal re­la­tion­ship.

The school head is con­sis­tently chal­lenged to nur­ture the de­sired re­la­tion­ship within and out­side the school. No sin­gu­lar be­hav­iour which will dis­tort the or­ga­ni­za­tional re­la­tion­ship must be com­ing from the school head. The aim of the school head is to en­sure the sus­tainance of the mean­ing­ful, sat­is­fy­ing and happy en­gage­ment of peo­ple in the or­ga­ni­za­tion. This will not only lead to the greater per­for­mance of the school but even to the greater pro­duc­tiv­ity of peo­ple in the or­ga­ni­za­tion.
