I know few top ranking senior executives in corporate life got stuck at some position and could not become a CEO in spite of their technical competence. The main reason was purely due to their inability to get along with people. At some point in time in our life no one can give feedback to us about our nasty behavior. They always justified that they are right and all other needs to change themselves to get along with them.When some one is in this state they become incorrigible and reach a dead end in their life.
There is a famous quote from Lauren Vander Post which reads as:
“ Human beings are perhaps never more frightening than when they are convinced beyond doubt that they are right.”
The only redemption in life for those who have poor IPR is to take the FIRO-B very seriously and implement in a war footing. FIRO-B model advocates 3 aspects to improve our IPR. The first one is "INCLUSION" which means we accept the person whole heartedly if we are keen to improve our relationship. The main reason for "Mother-in-law, Daughter-in-law problem is stemming form the basic reason both have not accepted the other human being part of their life. This is the meaning of the word "Inclusion". In the Western World the whites have not INCLUDED those who are with brown or black skin. NO INCLUSION, NO RELATION.
With whole of my heartNC
