Keep the child in you alive!

Today is a very special day to share some special thoughts on a topic which is closest to my heart. Have you ever tried to recall the memory which gave you most cheerfulness, pleasure and liveliness? If yes, then I am sure it was of your childhood. We were very happy at that time and that happiness comes from very minimum resources or if you remember sometimes there was no reason for our happiness. That was the real us.

Understand your Boss

Shared by Shri Adil Was addressing a Socialite Club gathering on ‘Life & Realities in the Corporate’. The ‘spirited’ group conspired & veered to argue that all problems were caused by ‘bad bosses’. In a way, I wanted to agree for that is life. But the topic covered ‘reality’ as well and thus I told them as I share … Like or Dislike …. you have to learn to manage upwards. Your boss is pivotal to your success generally and your failure, occasionally. Firstly to acknowledge … your boss has been successful in reaching the position which you have not as yet. Surely, he has something. Like it or disagree. More experience, generally more knowledge, bigger network, more power, more information and a lot more serendipity by h...

Root Cause at workplace- ANT

  Once long back there was a Lion who was an entrepreneur. He stated his business and to do the work kept few Ants. Ants either of fear or of engagement were working dedicatedly and giving result as expected. Ants used to come and go in time completing the task effectively and efficiently.

Ergonomic Essentials for Remote Working

Working from home is great. The reduced time in the office and cutting out arduous commutes are reason enough to make the switch. Your personal items and the comforts of home are easily accessible. Managing employees, contacting potential clients, grabbing a quick grilled cheese sandwich, and taking immediate control of projects are all possible in your own space. This ability to increase productivity still comes with hours of effort and physical strain, however. And sometimes a mind pressed by stress, too. Much of this can be heavily influenced by your workspace. But through being mindful ergonomics, you not only create a stronger rhythm for your workflow, you also reduce stress and strain on your body. Ergonomics is an often overlooked attribute of a personal workspace. But it has become...

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Flex Time

Offering more flexibile hours can boost employee satisfaction — but there are drawbacks. The 9-to-5 has been a staple for businesses for so long that you don’t even have to think about what those numbers mean; you already know. It’s a colloquialism, it’s a movie, it’s a Dolly Parton song. It’s so ubiquitous that many people don’t even question it. But what if working hours didn’t have to be set by a universal standard? What if they could be set-up to maximize the balance between life and work? This is the basic premise behind Flex Time, or the idea that workers can set their schedules around their lives. There are many different ways that a Flex Time system can work, though the most common is as follows: employees have a minimum number of hours they must work, but are allowed to start and ...

4 Problems with Employee Engagement Surveys

Employee engagement surveys are designed to provide employees with the opportunity to tell their management team how they’re feeling at work. That means all the positive AND negative thoughts and feelings are supposed covered in a survey lasting 100+ questions. Theoretically, this exercise leads to a perfect picture of what’s going on in the office. Are these surveys truly accurate? Unfortunately, the short answer is no. Employee engagement surveys tend not to give an accurate reflection of what’s going on in the workplace. In fact, because of the way they’re usually operated — with an air of finality and aloofness — they can actually be the chief motivation behind employee disengagement, creating the very problem these surveys mean to solve. By addressing problems inherent in engagement s...
