Dear all,
Need your advice for my situation,
I am working in company as an HR Manager for last five months, by Nature I am not a very strict man and I can not be serious all the time. I always maintain jolly mood, joking with employees and take situation lightly.
Slowly I started realizing that people may not take me serous if I continue to be like how I am.
Please advice me should I change my attitude towards them or shall I continue the way I am.
How an Ideal HR Manager should behave?
Cool, Calm or agressive and serious

A very good question by you MDASLAM49 and I would like to offer my thanks to you for raising this question which an important question for all of us here too

Well, what I understand is that an HR Manager needs to be STRATEGIC.

We daily speaks about Skills need to be required/ developed to be a good HR Manager and lot more but hardly people speak over Attitude, Behaviour/ interpersonal skills of an HR Manager which are really important thing and matters a lot. What I believe is to be a good or idealistic HR Manager one must have Magnetic Confidence, Good Interpersonal Communication Skills, Leadership and Presentation skills, Motivator/Philosopher and a good Learner along with a relevant experience. HR department/personnel are only who communicates with every department/employee working under premises of an organization and therefore it is really important for one to know when, how, to whom and what to speak and react on which and why.

HRD creates good resources to work with and maintain it by many ways to attained Organization objectives that we all know and these situation demands one to act/play an important role for Organization/Department accordingly, therefore, I believe to be a good and idealistic HR Manager one needs to be STRATEGIC.

Being jolly is a wonderful thing. At the same time, you need to be firm in given situations. The firmness is conveyed by your Body Language like eye contact, facial expressions and the tone of your voice.
Are you worried that people will not take me serious or the process has already started. If it is just fear, gives yourself more time before reacting.
If already people started taking you light and it is affecting your workmanship, then develop this dual expressions fast. As long as performance is not hampered, you need not worry.

It is not always possible to be in a serious mood,But I feel HR people need to draw a certain line between employees and themselves.Since They are the persons who deal with people in diffrent situations,Many a times HR become scapae goat between management and employees.So we have to behave in such a way that employees should trust us as well as they should not take us for granted.An ideal HR should know where to get serious ,where to be calm and quite and where to be aggresive.
(This is my personal opinion)

Dear Aslam,
No need to change your nature for anyone :)
Coz you are having a gud nature of making others happy. But for a HR, they need to be little bit :) firm... If its not possible for you, dont worry. Keep quiet in those situations. Being non reactive in situations make people realize that we are expecting them to do work. I tried it and got succeeded. please try this Strategy

Dear friend

I hope the suggestions given by the seniors is quite holds good. It is nothing wrong for HR Managers to be mingled with staff members and colleagues freely, but at the same time, the HR Managers should maintain official decency and decorum to maintain strict discipline of the staff members. In regard to the official business and transactions, the HR Managers should maintain strict observation, watch the work of the subordinates to complete the targeted work. Able supervision and firm decision making is necessary for smooth functioning of the HR Department. As a Manager of the Department, you have your own goals and objectives, and you have to fulfill certain norms to avoid dislocation of work.

If people are not recognizing you as serious, it is your loop-hole given to your staff members. You, being HR Manager, must maintain some standards and systematic discipline to show the dignity of the position and as well as you can extract work from others by means of your joyful interaction and involvement.
