Development of Personality for Professionals in Architecture

Personality Development is very important in the field of Architecture or for that matter in any field. Presenting yourself in a pleasant and winning hearts over is  a great skill to master. Students getting out of Universities are not always aware of the necessity of “Personality Development Programme”. Every student or a newbie professional must remember that they are now into the real world dealing with variety of people with different thoughts, attitudes and personalities. I reason I am writing these articles is for students who haven’t been able to develop confidence and need be aware of certain vitally important “Personality Development aspects”. So here we go…

We often say this word ‘personality’ and say, “I was impressed by her personality”. But what do we mean by the word ‘personality’? More often than not it is used only in reference with the outward appearance. Then it is a very shallow meaning. That is why often you develop disagreement with the personality, which has impressed you to begin with.

It is very difficult to define the word personality. Though it begins with appearance, it does not end up with it. It includes the dress, the language, behaviour, knowledge and everything of that person. A British author had said, “A man is a bundle of habits neatly done up in coat and trousers”.

I find this is a good definition. ‘A personality is the total reflection of your habits both good as well as bad’. To be successful professional you must cultivate a good personality. It means a conscious effort must be made in your young age to inculcate good habits in you. These days colleges do not pay any importance to this subject. That is an apathy.

How to converse on a telephone in Professional Practice?

Telephone has become a common instrument for us. Even then very few of us have a proper training to talk on the telephone. Here are few suggestions to improve your telephone talk.

A. Use of ‘Hello’ to be minimum on phone.

B. When you make a call, say who do you want to talk, rather than asking to the other end “Aap kaum?” ‘Who are you’? “Hello, Kaun Bolta hai”, this is a bad manner. Instead say, “Namaskar, Harish from Popatlal & Co.; May I talk to Chimanbhai?”

C. When you receive a call in an office, irrespective of the calling person being known or unknown to you, greet him and say where from you have received the call.

“Good morning, B. P.L.Ltd” OR “Associated Architects, Namaskar”.

If a person called is not in the office at that time, the person who receives the call shall show interest in attending the call, shall not sound indifferent to the calling person. If the calling party is unknown to you, you shall softly insist upon knowing the name of the person and where from was he calling and what was it about. The person receiving the call must show in his voice interest and concern in the business the calling party has with your office.

Address | Aspect of Personality Development

When you meet a person or when you come across a person known to you, you should greet him. That is considered as good manners. Most of you have complex in mind or are not trained at all in your young age. Depending upon your relation with the person such as senior or junior, older or younger, colleague or friend, you shall say Namaskar or good morning, Hi or Hello. Bu to ignore a person, particularly your senior, is ill manners.

When you come across a person older to you in an informal or formal get together you should approach to him and greet him. “How do you do” shall be replied by saying “How do you do” or “How are you sir?” shall be replied as “fine! Thank you”.
