Aligning Team Dynamics with Goals.

The manager must define the team goals. The same should be communicated in no uncertain terms to the members of the team. The allocation of various duties should be done keeping in view the strengths and weakness of the concerned members. This can happen only if the Manager is able to create a rapport with not only the main team members, but with each and everyone.

Communication Skills.

The communication skills of the Manager has to be nothing less than excellent. It is only when you are able to communicate your thoughts clearly and effectively that you are able to motivate your team members. The Manager must ensure clarity in speech. Besides the Manager must be an excellent listener. It is only with your ability to listen that you are able to create confidence and motivate the people to do what is required to be done to meet your targets.

Coaching Style.

The best strategy for a manager to generate action in the team is to adopt a coaching style of training the members of the team. It also ensures the close connect between the member on one side and the team on the other. The review of the performance of each of the members of the team on a continuous basis is indeed very helpful. Besides, this also helps the manager to render support wherever necessary to the team members.

Enthusiasm is contagious. The manager must understand this.He has to maintain his enthusiasm under all circumstances. There could be challenges which may at times unnerve the person, but the leader can not afford getting unnerved. In fact the manager must welcome the challenges. It is the manager’s job to resolve all problems willingly, enthusiastically and happily.

Self Esteem | Positive Attitude – 3 Ways Your Attitude Affects Your …

A positive attitude will not necessarily make you have increased self esteem but it will go a long way in helping it. If you begin to bring your positive attitude about other things and start applying it to the way you think about 

Loyalty

Mark Twain

Mark Twain

Mark Twain was a unique American writer. One cannot find another writer who could laugh at the stark realities of life and who could succinctly identify the irony so very dominant in our lives.

He once said, “If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man. ”

It is ironic that the man who has evolved so much, who is civilized and educated over the centuries when compared to a dog miserably falls short of the quality of loyalty, which is so clearly visible in the pet animal.

But, in the fast changing world concepts change. The big question is that for leading a happy, progressive life which are the principles that transcend the limits of time and space. What are the principles that we must stick to even today? What are the principles that need to be discarded or modified?

Thus, our story of the dog and the man brings us to the core question about ‘loyalty’ and its importance today. I seek your participation to review the virtue of ‘loyalty’ in the present environment.

Choose one of the four:

  1. Loyalty to country
  2. Loyalty to the organization you look for
  3. Loyalty to the spouse
  4. None at all

‘Voice Modulation’

We hear a lot about voice modulation in the age of public presentations.

What is modulation? And why is it so important?

Voice Modulation is your ability, rather, talent to bring in variance in pace, pause, pitch, emphasis on the key word and the tone. Unless you modulate your voice while speaking to a group or even a lone listener, the chances are that you speech will not be effective at all. We have often seen some members of the audience dozing away while the speaker continues his/her speech. Now, I will explain- pace, pause, pitch, emphasis on the key word and the tone.

Pace: if you speak very fast you will not be understood but, if you speak very slowly you tend to become dull and listeners will not like to listen to you. However, when you speak with a medium speech, though audience can understand you but the same pace of your words will render your speech monotonous.

Pause: Just as in written text you have coma, full stop, paragraph and other punctuation marks, your speech too must reflect the same by means of pauses of different durations. This will make the speech effective.

Pitch: It is the note on which you speak. While attending a solemn meeting you cannot speak on higher pitch. But at the same time if the commentator of a football match speaks at a low pitch, nobody will like to listen to him.

Emphasis on the key word: Just as you get unwanted results if you Google a wrong key word, different meaning will be conveyed by the same sentence when you emphasis a wrong word.

Tone: Tone is most dicey. It is easy to control the words and the sentences. But it is very difficult to control the tone. Tone represents the emotions with which you speak. Often times, due to inappropriate tone the speaker lands into trouble.

Are you listening?

While talking on the telephone often you ask the listener – “Are you Listening?” If there is no sound of response such as ‘hmm’, ‘yes’, ‘please go ahead’, ‘I understand’, etc. you tend to feel that your words are falling on deaf ears. More so when you are negotiating on the telephone.

But what happens when you talk face to face?

The significance of your words is reduced to just 10 to 15%. ‘How you say it?’ – becomes more important than what you say. Even when you are articulate the efficacy of your words will not go down unless you compliment your words with voice modulation. Modulation is your ability to bring variance in Pace, Pause, Pitch, Emphasis on the keywords and the Tone.

Further, you body language* too is extremely important for making the communication convincing and effective.

Attentive listening to others is the key to build good relations. Listen to others and they will listen to you!

*(facial expression, posture, gestures, eye contact)

Interpersonal Relations

Our interpersonal relations with others depend upon various factors. Two most important factors are one – our behavior towards the concerned persons, and two and how we speak to the concerned persons.The contents of what we convey to our peers and friends will primarily depend upon our behavior. If our conduct to certain persons has been consistently good. It shows our regard towards them. But how we speak to them, is equally important if not more. The efficacy of our speech can be improved by making our speech articulate. Besides, we also need to become good listeners. People want that when they speak, total attention of the listener/listeners should be focused on their speech. Their ego is hurt if they find listeners inattentive.
