I will tel u some behavioral skill for the effective HR professional..Strong time management skills and personal efficiency are key to the Human Resources professionals..HR professionals need to consider the needs of both employees as well as the management..The HR professionals need to be able to handle the employees issues..HR professionals need to help managers and develop their employees.. HR professionals must consequently understand team dynamics and find ways to bring the employees together and make the team work..All the best priyanka..
Hr person is competent when he knows his people and care for the people and make people to understand their purpose for other people and thus ensure integrety among them.The behaviour will keep on changing as per the situation and purpose.The Ideal thing is, one should be able to be so flexible and adaptable to various situations that calls for managing and balancing people's behaviour and bring them to align their focus towards common goal/achievement.
After all HR is all about human being.....
Everyone has given you great answers already. One of the meanings of the word 'behavior' itself shows a response to some form of stimuli. I'd like to reiterate that as an HR professional you need to...
a) Remain calm especially when dealing with pressure-filled situations or people
b) Maintain adequate emotional distance from the employees to be just and impartial
c) Be a people person (others should be able to approach you freely)
d) Be willing to trust people or give them the benefit of the doubt at least (I've noticed that many are first suspicious...)
e) Exhibit trustworthiness yourself; be cautious when dealing with employee information
f) Do NOT ever indulge in idle gossip; leave that for a private discussion outside preferably
g) Honor commitments
h) Be compassionate to people
I'm sure there are many more things which can be added. It is definitely not easy being in the HR department. One has to be mature to handle the unique challenges one encounters in this area. It doesn't matter how old you are, it matters how you handle the given situation. There's always a fine line between being approachable and becoming emotionally compromised. However, it can be achieved. All the best!
Being in HR, and if you have the opportunity to lead, supervise, mentor and motivate others - your ability to do so effectively makes a huge difference to your company's overall success. The knack of making best use every opportunity that comes your way lies entirely in your hands.
Be Yourself, be original
Don't take sides or badmouth one to become accepted by another
Be a Role Model
Rely on Your Ability to Support, Not on Your Ability to Do
Give Up the Illusion of Changing Anyone Except Yourself
Blow Your Team's Horn, Not Your Own
Focus on Your Team's Strengths
Take Charge of Your Own Growth
Work on Your Emotional Intelligence
Tell the Truth
Be an excellent communicator
Have an Internal Customer/Quality Focus
Practice inclusiveness always
Keep in touch with the latest in occupational knowledge, be technology oriented

Don't manage, lead, demonstrate and practice leadership
If you want to put a strong 'foothold' in HR function, please follow the 'Three-C' mantra i.e.
If you practice this meticulously, others follow automatically. You will become a 'role-model' for others.

Several views have been expressed and I am sure you have been benefitted.
I view HR as a department that serves all other departments.
So people in other departments are all internal customers.
All the care that you would need in dealing with customers have to be borne in mind.
Others can be listed as under.
