Tn THE FIELD of human relations, as in religion, conversions are too often followed by backsliding.
As a group, training directors are well aware that verbal commitment to an idea or philosophy does not always as-sure that action will 'logically" follow.
EvERY DAY has its fair share of misunderstandings for most of us. Some of these misunderstandings are simple, easily adjusted matters.
One ol these days you'll receive word that dues for 1953 will be gladly accepted by your chapter secretary-treasurer or by Russ Moberly. As you know, ASTD dues will be eleven dollars starting with our 9th year. I he increased dues were established as a result of a mail ballot vote just bclore mid-year.
Cloyd S. Steinmetz, President of the Kentucky Society of 1 raining Directors, was elected Vice President of Region III at the ASTD annual business meeting held in March at French Lick. 1 his is the second time he has been elected to serve on the ASTD governing board.
HE PUBLIC SERVICE Company of Colorado recently broadened the scope and ilex of its on-the-job training program by developing a classroom that goes to the students.
The Kansas City Society of Training Directors was officially started in 1948. A group of half a dozen training people met and discussed the possibility of forming a training association in Kansas Citv. As a result of this meeting Mr. Cloyd Steinmetz, Chairman of the Pro-motion Committee of the American So-ciety of Training Directors at that time, was invited to meet with us for advice and counsel.
A YEAR ago the training department at the head office of Unilever Limited considerably widened and developed its functions. In addition to specialized short courses, advanced trainee courses and part-time commercial training, ex-tensive part-time courses for boys and girls of school leaving age were introduced together with—at the other end of the scale—experimental courses for senior clerical staff.
There can be no real industrial rela-tions peace until there is full honor and respect of one individual for another in our industrial life. Most of our indus-trial relations problems grow out of a lack of appreciation of that principle, by both management and labor.
Secrecy in the modem business world is a thing of the past today and exchange visits by executives from different com-panies are valuable parts ol their ex-perience, Clifford Corneli, Corneli Seed Co., St. Louis, Missouri, said in a speech lecently.
Speaking at the opening session of a series of seminars for top executives sponsored by the University of Wiscon-sin Industrial Management Institute, Corneli outlined some of the functions and responsibilities of modern manage-ment and asked his audience, which included top leaders from Wisconsin firms, to help name some of the "head-aches."
THE PROFESSION of management
is gaining more and more recognition each dav the world over. It is most ap-propriate that management as a profes-sion be recognized in Tulsa where American Airlines has its largest con-centration of people and I congratulate you on the inauguration of vour man-agement group.
At the start of such an organization, it seems appropriate to me to discuss a management philosophy or goals or ideals.
