Organisations are not petty, persons assigned the duties of running them mostly are. I cannot stress this enough.
“Collectors with deep pockets naturally will have an extensive network and it is just a matter of time before word and evidence of petty and disgruntled sentiments reach them.” – Trivialities Are A Waste of Time By The Keris Collector.
It is unfortunate and a great loss to any organisation who employs individuals who lacks tact and diplomacy in handling potentially sensitive issues arising from menial of matters. An even greater loss when communications are not reviewed before being communicated externally.
Assessing a communication objectively, a rational and mature mind will conclude that though concerns may appear valid but if it has been communicated with spite saturated gusto, envy and a clear vindictive tone, this regrettably will set any organisation back by a few steps.
Individuals representing any established organisation should always refer back to their established mission, vision and core values when contemplating to raise issues. Better still to consult with their organisations’ communications and public relations department before raising concerns on behalf of the organisation.
Ironically these days, individuals running such organisations, assume they own the organisation and thus assigned themselves the revered rights of speaking on behalf of everyone.
A professional organisation, run by professionals will always be reminded that whatever they communicate, on behalf of the organisation, reflects every aspect of the organisation.
Have a baboon sending out your communications and you will have a serious communications crisis on your hands. Even worse, your organisation loose support, faith and trust.
Support, Faith and Trust are basic constructs that ensures a continued partnership and support, Failing in these areas can be disastrous. Words rages like wild fire within niche communities.
No single organisation has the facilities to sustain their objectives without communal support. It is very arrogant on the part of any organisation to assume they have all the required resources and require no support at all.
Even worse to have the audacity to dictate what can be done and cannot be done by organisations who have the resources and capabilities to carry out where the latter fails.
The Keris Collector, takes a very serious stand on any displeasure communicated. We are fair and impartial in our judgement. We look at any issues holistically and we take serious stand against individuals representing organisations who are racists, provocative, envious, vindictive, malicious, religious zealots, and linguistically biased.
We partner with anyone who shares a common ground; regardless of race, language or religion; and we extend our programmes, support and partnership with anyone interested, all in the name of maintaining our treasured harmony among races here.
Any individuals, representing any organisations or institutions whom we deemed to have crossed the professional boundary, we will simply escalate with evidence to a higher governing authority. Communication is important but diplomacy is key. We do not wish to be associated by arrogant bigots who represents any legitimate organisations and presume to be a leading authority on any subject to dictate what and how things should be done. That is pure arrogance.
Arrogance has no place within the confines of The Keris Collector. A professional organisation, should enlist passionate and professional representatives who have the humble acumen to be instrumental, tactful and exercise diplomacy in any direct discourse or disagreement instead of reacting emotionally over self perceived wrongs.
Whereever The Keris Collector may be, we record history. Whatever transpired will be documented objectively, with credentials and attributions credited where it rightfully deserves from a recognition standpoint and also from a historical archive content. We will neither omit any details knowingly nor add in false attributes. Facts remains as facts and we stand by the facts. Facts speaks for themselves.
Leaders leading organisations should stand firm and not be easily swayed by immature correspondents. Identify issues objectively instead of reacting blindly to peer pressure. Identify correctly what the issue is instead of hanging the wrongfully accused. That is how a professional organisation should behave. No one has to be victim of a bully.
To end this note, you know who you truly are. Look deep into your souls and you will see your true nature reflect back at you. Find a common ground and negotiate for a win-win situation. It is never a win when the other parties appear to loose. In the confines of private talks, for all you know, you have already become the crowning joke of the moment. A shame is it not?
