Do you desire cooperation and harmony in your organization? Of course every leader wants to have harmony and cooperation in their respective organization otherwise there would be dysfunction and chaos.
How does an orchestra conductor harmonize his orchestra? He studies the music that he will orchestrate. After studying he communicates to each member of the orchestra what he wants to achieve. The conductor does this by consciously practicing the music that they are going to play or present to their audience.
To many of us cooperation and harmony in organization is hard to achieve but a good leader must find ways on how to build harmony in his organization. The first thing that he should do is to study his organization and he should also know the kind of people working for the organization. By doing so he will now have an idea about his organization and what he needs to do to achieve harmony and cooperation.
Having done this, the leader now should properly communicate his ideas to his organization. This he can do best by calling for a general meeting and an open forum for all the members of the organization.
After which he will now present his plans for his organization and this does not end here. He should make himself available for his subordinates; he must have a listening ear. He should continue to build bridges and destroy any form of barrier that could impede the flow of cooperation and harmony in the organization. - Marino J. Dasmarinas
