Meaning of Counselling:
It is the people in the organisation who are the most important and valuable asset. They have emotions, feeling and a tender heart. Sometimes emotions and feelings create
problems and men and women could not overcome and lose their confidence and fail to put their mind in the work. These problems do not necessarily relate to the work. They may be family problems, financial problems, marital problems etc. All have a negative impact on their jobs. They can’t work properly and can’t put hundred percent.
The need of the hour is to remove the problem and help the individual to regain his or her self confidence and esteem and put his strength in work. Counselling can do the magic and help an individual to overcome his lost confidence and self respect because of the problem. So counselling is the process of helping an individual facing a problem and to regain his lost confidence and self esteem and put his mind in his job.
ADVERTISEMENTS:
The process of counselling begins with establishing relationship between counsellor and counsellee and taking into confidence the counsellee by the counsellor and allowing him to open his or her heart and after understanding the situation advising him to face the harsh realities of life and society boldly and building his confidence and paving way to make the best use of his strength by overcoming his weaknesses. B.J. Prasantham has rightly pointed out that, “Counselling is a relationship between the counsellor and counsellee characterized by trust and openness, in a one to one, or a small group relationship, whereby the counsellee is helped to work through his interpersonal and or intrapersonal problems and crisis.
He is also helped to mobilize his inner and outer resources and to find new options in facing life. Along with this, counselling also helps the client to discover and develop his God given potentialities and lead an integrated life and make his contribution for the welfare of his fellow men.” Counselling does not necessarily relate to the jobs. It is not advising alone. Under counselling, counsellor’s job is the most important. He has to make wholehearted efforts to understand problem and situation facing the individual and should study the strength, weaknesses of the problem individual and the environment at workplace and at his home.
The counsellor has to take him into confidence and be friendly with him. He has to console and put him at comfort. The counsellor has to take care that the individual feels at ease and open up his mind to him so that he knows the real problem faced by the individual. The counsellor must exercise lot of patience and try to restore confidence in counsellee.
Counsellor:
Any person can act as counsellor. He must be a person with charming personality, caring, should attract other persons toward himself and should be affectionate towards one and all and should understand and interpret the behaviour of others. Counsellor commands respect from the people and enjoys status in the entire organisation as his services help in achieving good human relations. Manager has to act as counsellor many a times. If this is so then manager has to be very careful.
ADVERTISEMENTS:
It is an additional responsibility he has to shoulder. It is an added advantage for the manager as counsellor that he knows his employees and subordinates well and could find no difficulty in understanding the problems faced by them. Manager must know that the problem ridden employees cannot work better but commit mistakes and sometimes come across accident causing immense loss to the organisation. Problems may be work related or personal, both affect job performance and losses have to be borne by the organisation increasing botheration of the manager.
It is, therefore, to be taken seriously. If proper counselling services are rendered to the problem employee by the manager and his self confidence is restored, he can be a potential contributor towards the achievement of organisational objectives. Any employee can face
