BE THE BEST

Motivation Session with Multinational Service Sector

Anubha’s Motivation Session with Multinational Service Sector

Achieving personal goals comes from fully applying oneself in every situation. This is what earns the trust and respect of others that will catapult an individual to a position of greater responsibility. A positive work ethic gets results and is contagious. If expectations are not being met, an individual should ask the right questions, find the answers, and make the necessary changes. If expectations are being met, an individual should push to exceed them. Individuals should never become complacent.

Getting Organized and Getting Things Done

As an individual’s success at achieving goals grows, so do his or her responsibilities. Good organization and time-management skills become increasingly important. While each person might have a different process for staying on track, every individual must develop one. Planning ahead, setting priorities, and communicating well should be part of this process.

Being organized includes:

*Creating a regular, daily routine.
*Establishing a reminder system (for meetings, deadlines, etc.).
*Making allowances for the unexpected (flexibility is key).
*Breaking projects into manageable “chunks.”
*Eliminating distractions.

COMMUNICATION : TONE OF VOICE

Standard

Let me start with example and practise. What does each word emphasis communicate. Read and repeat the same sentence a few times by empathising on word marked in BOLD

I don’t think you should go.”-  I’m communicating what I think, it’s my opinion.

“I don’t think you should go.” That means I disagree.

“I don’t think you should go.” Well, I’m not sure but that’s what I think / uncertain

“I don’t think you should go.” Well clearly here I’m saying, you shouldn’t be the one to go let somebody else go.- Instruction

“I don’t think you should go.” You shouldn’t be obligated to go that’s what I’m communicating there-Persuasion

 “I don’t think you should go.” You shouldn’t go but maybe you can be involved in another way –assessment

Remember you have to articulate for success. When the internet first emerged into the workplace and was called the world wide web. What a tongue twister. But a good reminder that you have to practice clear articulation if you want to find your best voice.

Before you start with some of these articulation practice lines, stretch and relax your facial muscles.

Big mouth. Warm up your jaw by saying, “Round and round.” And work your articulation much more than you would in daily conversation. Over articulating is something you should definitely do if you’re speaking in public. Practice by saying, “Up and down”, and warm up your vocal cords like a singer sing along, la la la.

Now the muscles and cords are warmed up, it’s time for some tongue twisters. Record yourself saying these.

  • Roberta ran rings around the Roman ruins.
  • How many cookies could a good cook cook, if a good cook could cook cookies?
  • Where she sits she shines, and where she shines she sits.

Finding your best voice will not happen overnight. Some things you can continue to do after reading my article, is record yourself so that you can go back and listen to and get feedback from trusted others. Practice standing and seated. Smile if you tend to sound too serious. Read children stories to your kids, if you are told that you are too monotonous. Keep working on sounding natural. With the right pitch, volume, inflection, and articulation, to cultivate your best speaking voice.

On regular basis Keep Practising by Taking a deep breath, in filing your diaphragm and as you exhale, place your hand on your stomach to feel that breath coming out. Let the air come out as the sound streams from your mouth. Repeat as you stand and you feel air following your sounds all the way from diaphragmto your throat and your mouth. Now, say something. For example, sing a happy birthday songas you breathe in and out.

Small but excellent TIPS….. Guys I have done it and sure you can do it.

Change Intelligence- Key Concepts and Insights

Standard

Leadership balances the emotional, cognitive, and behavioral dimensions of a personality. In some leaders one dimension predominates, while others exhibit a balance of two or three dimensions. The CQ of a team or an entire organization is a compilation of the individual CQs of its members. Groups function better if they understand their CQs both quantitatively and qualitatively. INTRODUCTION:WHAT IS CHANGE INTELLIGENCE?Thousands of hours of research and hundreds of books published on the subject of organizational change have failed to improve the success rate for major change programs. Whether a corporate restructure, a merger, a new product launch, or other program that demands rethinking and reworking, the success rate still falls below 30 percent. To improve this woeful statistic, leaders need to better understand how they approach change themselves. The Change Intelligence (CQ) system provides a tool for self-assessment. Using it, a leader can find out how they balance the “Heart, Head, and Hands” components: * Leaders who lead from the Heart connect with people emotionally * Leaders who lead from the Head connect with people cognitively. * Leaders who lead from the Hands connect with people behaviorally. No one type is ideal, but all leaders can succeed once they understand themselves clearly. People perceive change as a threat, something to be feared, not unlike death. The phases of human reaction to change are:

THE KING’s SPEECH by Anubha Walia

Standard

Seniors / leaders are scrutinised when they are speaking in public or giving a speech. This is an opportunity to set the tone for the organization, show a leader’s strength, and have a far reaching positive impact on any followers. Delivering a good speech requires effort and preparation. The authors offer some key steps leaders can follow to overcome their fear and anxiety about public speaking:KINGS SPPECH

* Write out the presentation in full. Sentences should be short and to the point.
* Learn the speech. Record it and listen to it over and over again until it sinks in.
* Do not be concerned about learning the speech word-for-word. However, learn the first two minutes by heart. This will alleviate initial nervousness.
* Write out notes onto small cards in case a prompt is necessary midway.
* When a speech is being given in unfamiliar territory then visit the site beforehand. Check audio and visual systems and become familiar with the environment.
* Make alternate plans in case any audio or visual system fails. Always have a back-up plan in case something goes wrong. This will give a greater sense of confidence prior to speaking a word.
