Importance of making Mistakes. . . .


mistakes

Mistakes are the most important thing that happens in any classroom, because they tell you where to focus that deliberate practice.

So why don’t students view their mistakes as a valuable asset? Well, students don’t think about their mistakes rationally — they think about them emotionally. Mistakes make students feel stupid. “Stupid” is just that: a feeling. Specifically, it’s the feeling of shame, and our natural response is to avoid its source. If we say something embarrassing, we hide our face. If we get a bad grade, we hide the test away. Unsurprisingly, that’s the worst move to make if you ever want to get better.

Academic success does not come from how smart or motivated students are. It comes from how they feel about their mistakes.

It’s Okay to be the Boss, Be a Great One !!


bossYou are the boss. You are the most important person in that workplace. What kind of boss are you going to be?

 

Fight the under management epidemic! Create real accountability. Be the boss who says, ” Great news, I am the Boss! I consider that a sacred responsibility. I am going to make sure that everything goes well here. I am going to set you up for success every step of the way. When you need something, I am going to help you find it. When you want something, I am going to help you earn it”.

 

Accept your authority, take charge, and become a strong manager. You owe it to your employer. You owe it to your employees. You owe it to yourself.

It’s Okay to be the Boss. Be a great one !

 

Cheers,

Not important to win all battles at workplace or otherwise.. Try loosing some !


Usually when we correct others, it is not for the purpose of settling any real problems. It is usually to increase our feeling of importance at the expense of others.

Ask yourself,  ”Does it make real difference whether they are right or wrong?” Dont try to win all the battles. If nothing is involved except the other person’s ego, why bother? The negative impact you create far outweighs the small victory of your own ego.”

So, know when to correct others..

What else on this earth is as important or interesting as People?


Remember- Its great people and not great strategies that make it all happen !

 

 

 

1.Think other people are important – You cannot make others feel important in your presence if you secretly feel they are nobodies.

2.Notice People- Have you ever thought about the fact that we notice those things that are important to us? Thus, when someone notices us, they pay us a big complement. They are saying that they recognize our importance, and give a big boost to our morale.

3. Don’t Compete with people- If you want to make a good impression on others, the most effective way is to let them know that you are impressed by them. Let them know that they impress you, and they will judge you one of the smartest, most personable individuals they have met. Compete with them, and they will be firmly convinced that you are a fool who doesn’t know his way around.

4.Know when to correct others- Ask yourself “Does it makes any real difference whether they are right or wrong? ” Don’t try to win all the little battles. The negative impact you create far outweighs the small victory for your own ego.

Happy Noticing 🙂

An Idea for Apparel Industry’s online business model [Innovation]


Idea- > To install an application on online apparel portal where a customer can see his or her image with the clothes without actually trying them on..

I have an idea for the apparel industry. An application that will take the customer interaction to the next level.

 

EK IDEA JOH BADAL DE SHOPPING KI DUNIA ? To install an application on online apparel portal where a customer can see his or her image with the clothes without actually trying them on. The customer can change the colors and designs as well. This will be very useful for online stores as they  otherwise, lack direct customer interaction.

 

Happy Shopping 🙂

Employee push-backs and strong Manager Responses [Case 1]


We all are looking to you our Manager. If there is a problem, you are the only solution, plz help !

Employee Push- Back: “You favor Maya”.

What is a Manager to say on this? Let’s look at a way to respond to the classic employee push-back written above.

Manager’s response: ”Let me tell  you why I go out of my way to reward Maya. Because she does more work than other people. When I ask her to do something, she does it. When I don’t ask her to do something, she figures out what to do and she does it. Do you want me to go out of my way for you? Let me tell you exactly what I need you to do. Let’s set clear goals with clear guidelines and concrete deadlines. Meet those goals within those guidelines by those deadlines, and I will start going out of my way for you “.

Bossing is a very important role. So, accept your authority, take charge, and become a strong manager. You  owe it to your employers. You owe it to your employees. You owe it to yourself.

It’s okay to be the boss. Be a great one !

Happy Managing 🙂
