When I try to resolve issues and conflicts, I see a clear gap between expectations of both parties. Most of the times, expectations are not made clear. In professional companies, you make the expectations clear in terms of KRAs & results. But when it comes to the appraisal, managers say, results are ok but still employee needs to improve. There are certain points discussed, which employees are not even heard in past.
Awareness of an employee plays important role in success. You are expected to be smart enough to understand dimensions of human behaviour and thereby perceived expectations also.

Ethics and values go hand in hand. Leaders are role model for the people. They watch their leaders, may the leader be political or entrepreneur. People always observe them and get influenced by their behaviour? That is the reason, why leader has more accountability to exhibit the right behaviour than followers.
A leader is a person capable of influencing the thoughts, feelings and behaviors of other people. In order for a leadership to be ethical, that influence must be based on principles and values.
The charisma of many leaders such as Hitler and Hussein have led thousands and millions of followers to carry out atrocities and injustices, to commit crimes against their fellow citizens and against humanity and, in their actions, to contradict what they preach in their public speeches with such energy and “magic.”
What are your values? Under which principles do you act in your life? The impact of ethics in leadership is very high. Living a life faithful to what we endorse, "Walking the Talk,” practicing what we preach, is the great challenge. It is my daily challenge and I know that it is also yours. Be great in the small things and you will be a great leader.

Due to this, negotiations took long time and both parties could not enter into the agreement. It was pending almost one year.
The company celebrates its founder day every year in October. Union decided to boycott the function. All blue collar workmen did not turn up for the function. But the function was great success with participation of staff and their family members.
Next day, union requested that they would like to pay the homage to the founder, in the premises of the company. All the functional head were in the opinion that they had nothing to do with the founder, if they had, they would have to be present on founder day. They should not be allowed.
There was lots of discussion. At the end of the day, General Manager was one side and all others were at another side including HR Head.
There was another Dy. Manager working in HR. General Manager called the guy in the meeting room.
“Union is asking the place in the premises of the company for their gathering?” what is your opinion?” he asked.
“No we should not permit their gathering inside the company premises.” He replied.
“Do you know for what this is?”
“They do not want for conducting any meeting. It is for paying the homage to the founder”
Guy looks to HR head, expecting some signal. He just smiles.
