Abstract

Their behaviour and performance are influenced by several factors inside and outside the organization. In order to manage people effectively, managers need knowledge and skills in human relations. Healthy human relations can be built by integrative or problem solving approach in which both the parties  gain satisfaction of their respective  needs in a cooperative manner, and  not at the expense of one another. The paper tries firstly to cover problems in human relations. Further, strategies for establishing healthy human relations have been suggested.
