5 Midyear Reviews Everyone Should Conduct to Succeed

5 Midyear Reviews Everyone Should Conduct to Succeed

June can be a tough month for most professionals. Your children are either done with school or nearing an end. Summer vacation planning can be quite distracting (though fun as well). All the while you’re amazed at how fast half the year has gone by! But more than all that, June provides a great opportunity to reflect on your goals and targets. You’ve most likely set annual goals and targets for yourself at the start of the year. As you’re approaching the end of this month, take some time to review your midyear accomplishments, whether or not you’re on track and evaluate how successful you’ve been so far. Here’s a quick checklist you can use as a midyear review guide: 1. How Accomplished Are You In Terms Of Your Goals? Probably the first and fundamental aspect of your job to check upon should be your annual goals.

5 Vital Things To Reflect On During the Holidays

5 Vital Things To Reflect On During the Holidays

Every now and then we’re fortunate to have a holiday season that provides us an opportunity to wind down from our daily routine. Most of our time is obviously spent with our families and loved ones or we use this occasion to go on vacation. That’s great, but what’s equally important is to find some time for yourself. A time when you can reflect on your life and your career. A great way to spend your time off is to reflect on what you’ve accomplished so far, where your journey is taking you and get your head back in the game. It’s important to do this so you’re getting perspective on your career and personal life. Also it helps to reflect upon the lighter side of life just so you’re able to extract the most from your time and efforts. During this holiday season – which luckily is coming midyear – here are a few things you should reflect on: 1. What have you spent most of your time...

How to Benefit From Healthy Conflicts

How to Benefit From Healthy Conflicts

Conflicts are an interesting phenomenon at the workplace – you either have too many of them or you have none at all. Neither of them is healthy for an organization as they act as roadblocks to innovation. Yet, every organization has its fair share of conflicts (or lack of it). For a leader, it’s quite challenging and puzzling when you’re caught in the midst of such situations. Either you have a room full of people who agree with everything you say, or they’re hell-bent on disagreeing with you just to prove you wrong. And again, in either case there’s truly no winning situation nor is it productive for your organization. There are a few workable solutions to make the most out of conflicts. A balance of healthy conflict and a certain level of agreement is what you need to strike to ensure things move along smoothly. Here’s how you can facilitate the process and ensure you’re able to extract the most from your team. 1. Respect Differences There’s much...

Lessons Learned by the Mistakes of Travis Kalanick

Lessons Learned by the Mistakes of Travis Kalanick

Two weeks ago I talked about the ethical challenges leaders and organizations face in this age of acceleration. Well it couldn’t have timed better. Last week Travis Kalanick stepped away from the organization he built and led, Uber, for an indefinite leave of absence. In his message to employees he stated “If we are going to work on Uber 2.0, I also need to work on Travis 2.0 to become the leader that this company needs and that you deserve.” It’s a bold move for a leader, particularly when he has to admit he’s made mistakes and then to walk away from the company he created with so much passion. Such decisions are never easy, but they are sometimes necessary for an organization to sustain its growth, rebuild its tarnished reputation and facilitate a bounce back. Over the years Uber has had its fair share of controversies and scandals. But all that hasn’t stopped it from growing exponentially – yet. The board, however, finally decided that it’s had enough....

7 Effective Ways How Your Office Should Be Organized

7 Effective Ways How Your Office Should Be Organized

There’s a good chance that part of the stresses you deal with on a daily basis is linked to how organized (or disorganized) your office space is. According to New York City based professional organizer, Lisa Zaslow, “surveys show the average person loses an hour a day to disorganization.” That’s an hour you could have used much more productively. And let’s not forget the stress you experience when you’re frantically trying to find something you need urgently. While the digital age has enabled us to be reduce much paperwork and remain on our computers for most of the day, we still can’t avoid “all” paperwork. We’ll still work with physical documents that are requirements of our job. And that’s alright as long as you’re able to sensibly stay organized. Working in a well-organized office environment can massively benefit your productivity. It allows you to remain in control of your environment, feel competent, remain focused as you’re less distracted and gives you an opportunity to be much more welcoming to...
