Exciting news from the CIPD that conflict management is at the 'top of the agenda'
is disturbing stuff.
Apart from confirming Guru's view that most managers don't know their elbow from their armpits, the fact that they spend an average of 14 days trying to resolve problems by going down a 'formal route' suggests their HR departments are not doing their job properly.
Intriguingly, the CIPD suggests that avoiding the 'tuxedo trail' is the way forward and that a twin approach that includes mediation can speed up the process.
Yours Truly couldn't agree more and advocates the use of the Brsletsova twins from down town Bucharest in any workplace disputes. The former star employees of the Ceaucescu family may be getting on in years now, but, like the UK's cartoon gangsters the Kray Twins, their hands-on techniques in employee relations disputes take a lot of beating... or is that involve a lot of beating?
Should their time-honoured techniques not be to your liking, Guru recommends the small brown envelope scenario beloved of banking institutions around the globe, ie, simply pay them to go away - so much more time-efficient than actually dealing with a problem.
