"The efficiency of every organization is dependent on the effectiveness of her workplace relationships."
IRMP is a cocktail of Relationship Management Skills for Executive trainees, Managers and Senior Management.
As the world becomes more complex, so have the people who live and work in it. IRMP is a strategic model that espouses the art and science of workplace relationships with the ultimate aim of transforming organisations.
The most common workplace challenges include, burn-out, lack of job satisfaction, non-cooperation, internal wrangling, loss of customer loyalty, reduced productivity and lowered profitability. This is a narrative IRMP is designed to change.
More than professional skills therefore, the IRMP program embodies the relational skills every staff and manager needs to succeed.
This root, stem and branch solution critical to the attainment of managerial goals and actualization of corporate visions is deployed in three key ways RELATE, RESOLVE, EVOLVE.
Anatomy of the IRMP Model
The ability to identify the core concerns, needs and potential issues bordering on personal effectiveness in a workplace, is critical to every organisation. An unidentified issue in the root, manifests at the fruit, where the propensity to dent the image of the organisation is higher. IRMP starts by identifying the unique sources and causes of the most common workplace relational problems.
The volume of human and financial capital lost to unresolved or poorly resolved workplace disputes cannot be quantified. For resolution to be cost saving, it must not only be adequate, but timeous. Many costly conflicts begin as mismanaged complaints or ignored issues. IRMP uses the resolution angle to address these issues, neatly nipping them in the bud.
The dynamic nature of the workplace makes it imperative to admit that not all differences can be resolved. Managing differences to achieve organisational goals serve the same purpose when they cannot be resolved. IRMP, provides tools that creates the atmosphere for an organisation to oscillate between resolution and management without losing face, people, time and money.
The core essence of Identification is Prevention. By anchoring on effective Identification of issues, IRMP further provides a step by step approach that if adopted will enable an organisation skip resolution and management phase into applying preventive solutions to intractable disputes that could prove ruinous in the long term. Organisations can learn to prevent avoidable mistakes that mar workplace culture or delay their successful evolution.
