Management Lesson


 
One fine day, a bus driver went to the bus garage, started his bus, and drove off along the route. No problems for the first few stops-a few people got on, a few got off, and things went generally well. At the next stop, however, a big hulk of a guy got on. Six feet eight, built like a wrestler, arms hanging down to the ground. He glared at the driver and said, "Big John doesn't need to pay!" and sat down at the back.

Rules to Stay Young


1. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

2. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.'

3. Enjoy the simple things.

4. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

5. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

D.E.V.E.L.​O.P


 
Describe the performance problem in objective terms. As you begin a performance dialogue with an employee, it is important to focus on specific, observable behavior. People resent personal attacks and are more open to hearing about aspects of their behavior that need to change.

Express your opinion regarding the performance.
Value the employee. When giving performance feedback, it is critical that you clearly describe the behavior that is inappropriate, or needs to change.It is important to value the employee’s other contributions when providing feedback that addresses a particular concern.

Encourage input. With the right approach, employees should feel encouraged to talk about their view of the problem and more importantly, ideas they have to address the problem. In some cases, the manager will need to be direct about how the employee should change his or her behavior. In most cases we find that employees can generate their own solutions to behavior that has been identified as inappropriate or counter productive. Employees are always more motivated to try their own suggestions for improved performance.

Listen. Leadership is based on a relationship. You can’t build a solid relationship based on trust and respect if you don’t listen. Listening says, “I care.” Listening helps you identify, from the employee’s perspective, why there might be a problem. Listening gives you time to begin thinking about solutions that might work to fix the problem. A great coach asks questions, listens to the response, and acts accordingly. It’s no coincidence that the best coaches are also the best listeners.

Outline future behaviors. After you have clearly identified the problem and had a dialogue with the employee about what will change, it is important to clearly outline the behavior you expect to see in the future.

Project outcomes, both positive and negative, related to the performance you are discussing. Sometimes there are positive consequences for the poor performance.

Like every other skill you’ve acquired, coaching takes practice. Work hard to help your employees D.E.V.E.L.O. P. The payoff is improved performance, better morale, greater retention of team members and less stress

cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of
cancer is higher).

Increase Your IQ


1. Minimize Watching the Idiot Box, Start Reading

The TV, whether an LCD or plasma, was nicknamed ˜the Idiot Box" for a very valid reason”this gadget tends to numb our sensibilities. Some people might argue that TV viewing can be rather enriching if the right channels are chosen. However, when watching TV, the human mind is pushed into a state of vegetation. Largely, its effect is entertaining and there might be short instances when it can stimulate our mind but overall, watching TV isn't the recommended way of unwinding if you want to increase your IQ. A much better medium is books, whether read physically or on the Kindle. This is because reading a book makes our mind to create mental images, decipher the plot and tests our vocabulary. This is a far more wholesome exercise for the mind.
