A Brand with Values.


Finding shared values means you have to have some values, they can’t just be milquetoast, namby-pamby middle-of-the-road crap.

If you’re in the business of making landmines, you’ve got a big problem. But if you’re making dessert, you’ve got a lot of choices of values that reflect your values.

Himpunan penyegar minda!


Jangan disiksa anakmu, jangan dirotan dan ditampar sehingga merah, jangan dicucuk sehingga berdarah! Biarpun kamu memakaikan baju koyak rabak, badannya terkena nasjis dia tetap mencarimu dan memanggilmu… bukannya reban ayam, kandang kuda mahupun longkang tempatnya tetapi ‘pelukan kasih sayang’ menjadikan anak itu menjadi manusia.

Jika kamu telah mengira berapa banyak DOA yang telah kamu lontarkan sejak dulu lagi, andalah GURUKU.. Aku sedang mencarimu…

Menghargai setiap kali bangun tidur, ambil masa anda sedikit untuk menjenguk di luar jendela, rumah dan berfikir sejenak anda masih boleh melihat kelas tempat kita menumpang untuk menuntut ilmu. Selamat pagi jumaat, nampaknya KL mendung, negeri lain tak tahu… walau siapa pun anda, hormatilah mereka, tidak semestinya HIGH CLASS maka senyuman itu hilang kerana ia cukup mujarab untuk mereka yang lalu disisi anda…

Bersembang dengan orang miskin yang meminta sedekah di jalanan lebih baik dari bersembang dengan manusia kaya yang berhati busuk…

Perlihatkan betapa anda mengambil berat terhadapnya, bukan betapa anda ingin mengetahui beratnya ataupun sebaliknya..Walaupun banyak yang anda tahu, mereka akan berkata.. ADA KU KISAH!!! So, apa yang perlu anda lakukan untuk menawan hatinya? Show them how much you care! how much you give…gunalah ia walau apapun bidang anda, NOT ONLY CINTA…

Hidup yang tidak teratur amat mudah dijangkiti penyakit, tugas anda mengubatinya, mencari penawarnya dan membersihkannya..

I wanna thank you for all the things that you’ve done You’ve done for me through all my years I’ve been lost You guided me from all the ways that were wrong And did you give me hope~ MAHER ZAIN – Thank You Allah

Ah saya tahu berapa GAJI si polan tu, saya tahu apa kerja dia tu… suddenly you ask me, ko buat apa ya? hehehe, berapa masyuk tiap bulan ah? so WHY SHOULD I TELL U IF YOU KNOW ABOUT IT?

Pernah melihat lumba kuda? bukan main kuda ya.. bagaimana ia berlumba untuk memenangi perlumbaan hingga kegarisan penamat, walaupun kaki yang berusaha untuk ke garisan itu tetapi kepala yang sampai dahulu akan dikira sebagai pemenang…begitu juga manusia yang berusaha sebaik mungkin untuk menundukan kepala untuk memenanginya, body is your ENGINE! mind is your KEY! touch is your WIN!, you know what I mean?

Egokah kamu jika sanggup melakukan perkara BAHAYA dihadapan anak buah? TIDAK! TIDAK! TIDAK! Anda lakukan kerana ingin memimpin, menjadi pemimpin, membimbing dan layak mengepalai selagi diperlukan..

Imbas balik apa yg anda lakukan dari pagi tadi, jika terlalu fokus.. masa itu terlalu cepat berlalu… tidak sedar sekarang sudah petang, kalau banyak buang masa pun petang pun tidak sedar juga..

Manusia bukan sahaja memiliki kuasa sebagai pembeli tetapi memiliki kuasa untuk menolak jika lelaki atau wanita itu ingin menawarkan dirinya sebagai pasangan seumur hidup. Tidak salah menolak dan tidak salah mengundurkan diri, apa yang penting caranya betul dan tidak menyakitkan orang samada yang nampak, tidak nampak dan yang jelas kelihatan oleh orang sekeliling..

Why Coaching is the Way to Go in Team Management


This article ‘Private Label Rights’ No Restrictions
When you hear the word “coach”, what comes first into your mind? Do you picture a basketball team with a man/woman shouting out directions? Or perhaps a football team with a man/woman pacing to and fro and calling out the names of the players?

Coaching is no longer reserved to sports teams; it is now one of the key concepts in leadership and management. Why is coaching popular?

1. Coaching levels the playing field.

Coaching is one of the six emotional leadership styles proposed by Daniel Goleman. Moreover, it is a behavior or role that leaders enforce in the context of situational leadership. As a leadership style, coaching is used when the members of a group or team are competent and motivated, but do not have an idea of the long-term goals of an organization. This involves two levels of coaching: team and individual. Team coaching makes members work together. In a group of individuals, not everyone may have nor share the same level of competence and commitment to a goal. A group may be a mix of highly competent and moderately competent members with varying levels of commitment. These differences can cause friction among the members. The coaching leader helps the members level their expectations. Also, the coaching leader manages differing perspectives so that the common goal succeeds over personal goals and interests. In a big organization, leaders need to align the staffs’ personal values and goals with that of the organization so that long-term directions can be pursued.

2. Coaching builds up confidence and competence.

Individual coaching is an example of situational leadership at work. It aims to mentor one-on-one building up the confidence of members by affirming good performance during regular feedbacks; and increase competence by helping the member assess his/her strengths and weaknesses towards career planning and professional development. Depending on the individual’s level of competence and commitment, a leader may exercise more coaching behavior for the less-experienced members. Usually, this happens in the case of new staffs. The direct supervisor gives more defined tasks and holds regular feedbacks for the new staff, and gradually lessens the amount of coaching, directing, and supporting roles to favor delegating as competence and confidence increase.

3. Coaching promotes individual and team excellence.

Excellence is a product of habitual good practice. The regularity of meetings and constructive feedback is important in establishing habits. Members catch the habit of constantly assessing themselves for their strengths and areas for improvement that they themselves perceive what knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to acquire to attain team goals. In the process, they attain individually excellence as well. An example is in the case of a musical orchestra: each member plays a different instrument. In order to achieve harmony of music from the different instrument, members will polish their part in the piece, aside from practicing as an ensemble. Consequently, they improve individually as an instrument player.

4. Coaching develops high commitment to common goals.

A coaching leader balances the attainment of immediate targets with long-term goals towards the vision of an organization. As mentioned earlier, with the alignment of personal goals with organizational or team goals, personal interests are kept in check. By constantly communicating the vision through formal and informal conversations, the members are inspired and motivated. Setting short-term team goals aligned with organizational goals; and making an action plan to attain these goals can help sustain the increased motivation and commitment to common goals of the members.

5. Coaching produces valuable leaders.

Leadership by example is important in coaching. A coaching leader loses credibility when he/she cannot practice what he/she preaches. This means that a coaching leader should be well organized, highly competent is his/her field, communicates openly and encourages feedback, and has a clear idea of the organization’s vision-mission-goals. By vicarious and purposive learning, members catch the same good practices and attitudes from the coaching leader, turning them into coaching leaders themselves. If a member experiences good coaching, he/she is most likely to do the same things when entrusted with formal leadership roles.

Some words of caution though: coaching is just one of the styles of leadership. It can be done in combination with the other five emotional leadership styles depending on the profile of the emerging team. Moreover, coaching as a leadership style requires that you are physically, emotionally, and mentally fit most of the time since it involves two levels of coaching: individual and team. Your members expect you to be the last one to give up or bail out in any situation especially during times of crises. A coaching leader must be conscious that coaching entails investing time on each individual, and on the whole team. Moreover, that the responsibilities are greater since while you are coaching members, you are also developing future coaches as well.

Manage your stress


Sentiasa cekal dibulan ramadan, duit raya dilupa jangan..http://yep.it/hariraya
1. Acknowledge stress is good

Make stress your friend! Based on the body’s natural “fight or flight” response, that burst of energy will enhance your performance at the right moment. I’ve yet to see a top sportsman totally relaxed before a big competition. Use stress wisely to push yourself that little bit harder when it counts most.

2. Avoid stress sneezers

Stressed people sneeze stress germs indiscriminately and before you know it, you are infected too!
Protect yourself by recognizing stress in others and limiting your contact with them. Or if you’ve got the inclination, play stress doctor and teach them how to better manage themselves.

3. Learn from the best

When people around are losing their head, who keeps calm? What are they doing differently? What is their attitude? What language do they use? Are they trained and experienced?
Figure it out from afar or sit them down for a chat. Learn from the best stress managers and copy what they do.

4. Practice socially acceptable heavy breathing

This is something I’ve learned from a gym instructor: You can trick your body into relaxing by using heavy breathing. Breathe in slowly for a count of 7 then breathe out for a count of 11. Repeat the 7-11 breathing until your heart rate slows down, your sweaty palms dry off and things start to feel more normal.

5. Give stressy thoughts the red light

It is possible to tangle yourself up in a stress knot all by yourself. “If this happens, then that might happen and then we’re all up the creek!” Most of these things never happen, so why waste all that energy worrying needlessly? Give stress thought-trains the red light and stop them in their tracks. Okay so it might go wrong – how likely is that, and what can you do to prevent it?

6. Know your trigger points and hot spots

Presentations, interviews, meetings, giving difficult feedback, tight deadlines…. My heart rate is cranking up just writing these down! Make your own list of stress trigger points or hot spots. Be specific. Is it only presentations to a certain audience that get you worked up? Does one project cause more stress than another? Did you drink too much coffee?
Knowing what causes you stress is powerful information, as you can take action to make it less stressful. Do you need to learn some new skills? Do you need extra resources? Do you need to switch to decaf?

7. Burn the candle at one end

Lack of sleep, poor diet and no exercise wreaks havoc on our body and mind. Kind of obvious, but worth mentioning as it’s often ignored as a stress management technique. Listen to your mother and don’t burn the candle at both ends!
So having stress can be a total drag, but that should not hinder us to find the inner peace of mind that we have wanted for a long time. In any case, one could always go to the Bahamas and bask under the summer sun.

Why is it important to improve yourself?


*** This is PLR article, No Restrictions *** Sometimes, when all our doubts, fears and insecurities wrap ourselves up, we always come up with the idea of “I wish I was somebody else.” More often than not, we think and believe that someone or rather, most people are better than us.- when in reality, the fact is, most people are more scared than us. You spot a totally eye-catching girl sitting by herself at a party, casually sipping on a glass of Asti Spumanti. You think to yourself, “she looks so perfectly calm and confident.” But if you could read thru her transparent mind, you would see a bunch of clouds of thoughts and you might just be amazed that she’s thinking “are people talking about why I am seated here alone?… Why don’t guys find me attractive? …I don’t like my ankles, they look too skinny… I wish I was as intelligent as my best friend.”

We look at a young business entrepreneur and say “Wooh… what else could he ask for?” He stares at himself at the mirror and murmur to himself, “I hate my big eyes… I wonder why my friends won’t talk to me… I hope mom and dad would still work things out.” Isn’t it funny? We look at other people, envy them for looking so outrageously perfect and wish we could trade places with them, while they look at us and thinks of the same thing. We are insecure of other people who themselves are insecure of us. We suffer from low self-esteem, lack of self-confidence and lose hope in self improvement because we are enveloped in quiet desperation.

Sometimes, you notice that you have an irritating habit like biting off your finger nails, having a foul mouth, and you – of all people, is the last to know.I have a friend who never gets tired of talking. And in most conversations, she is the only one who seems to be interested in the things she has to say. So all of our other friends tend to avoid the circles whenever she’s around, and she doesn’t notices how badly she became socially handicapped – gradually affecting the people in her environment.

One key to self improvement is to LISTEN and TALK to a trusted friend. Find someone who you find comfort in opening up with even the most gentle topics you want to discuss. Ask questions like “do you think I am ill-mannered?”, “Do I always sound so argumentative?”, “Do I talk too loud?”, “Does my breath smell?”, “Do I ever bore you when were together?”. In this way, the other person will obviously know that you are interested in the process of self improvement. Lend her your ears for comments and criticisms and don’t give her answers like “Don’t exaggerate! That’s just the way I am!” Open up your mind and heart as well. And in return, you may want to help your friend with constructive criticism that will also help her improve her self.

One of Whitney Houston’s songs says “Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all.” True enough. In order to love others, you must love yourself too. Remember, you cannot give what you do not have. Before telling other people some ways on how to improve themselves, let them see that you yourself is a representation and a product of self improvement. Self improvement makes us better people, we then inspire other people, and then the rest of the world will follow.

Stop thinking of yourselves as second-rate beings. Forget the repetitive thought of “If only I was richer… if only I was thinner” and so on. Accepting your true self is the first step to self improvement. We need to stop comparing ourselves to others only to find out at the end that we’ve got 10 more reasons to envy them. We all have our insecurities. Nobody is perfect. We always wish we had better things, better features, better body parts, etc. But life need not to be perfect for people to be happy about themselves.Self improvement and loving yourself is not a matter of shouting to the whole world that you are perfect and you are the best. It’s the virtue of acceptance and contentment. When we begin to improve ourselves, we then begin to feel contented and happy. *** This is PLR article, No Restrictions ***
