Learn the art of dynamic leadership

Leadership is art of leading a group of people to attain a certain goal. Without leadership qualities it is very difficult to write a big success story either in business or in politics. Progress of a country or success of a business depends on its leadership. This world is full of talented and hard-working humans. There are brave persons in every street or block of every colony. But if they don’t get a good leader they won’t be able to combine themselves into a dynamic force. Without a good leader the best of the businesses or the mightiest of the forces start crumbling. The history is replete with examples how the personality of a leader plays an important role in making or breaking an empire.

Good leaders are needed and respected in every field – politics, business, army, social reform movements etc. Great leaders are not born, they acquire greatness with total commitment to their purpose and by getting the support of others. Any sensible person can become a dynamic leader by cultivating a few qualities with diligence and persistence. Unless you develop these qualities you will find it very difficult to manage people and get ahead in any field.

DYNAMIC LEADERSHIP MEANS TO BE ENTHUSIASTIC

‘Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.’ These words of great American philosopher Emerson carry weight. Unlimited enthusiasm can give you unlimited success when it is focused and directed towards the aim of your life. People rarely want to follow a dull or unenthusiastic leader who is unable to arouse their feelings. An unenthusiastic leader is like a dark night that makes you take rest and sleep. How can such a person lead a group of people?

In fact enthusiasm is the biggest trait of a leader. See the speeches of the great leaders or very successful business executives they all are very enthusiastic person. Enthusiasm is actually a combination of several things: interest in the subject and the people, determination to achieve certain goals, self-confidence.

DYNAMIC LEADERSHIP MEANS TO MAINTAIN STRICT DISCIPLINE

What will happen if nature starts breaking the barriers of discipline. The planets will collide with one another. The whole universe will be totally disorganised and there won’t be any human civilisation on any planet. Strict discipline keeps the universe throbbing with life. Actually without swallowing the bitter pill of strict discipline it is hard to gain the respect of people. If you are really a big leader people may tolerate your habit of reaching late. They may wait for you for hours to have a glimpse of your great personality and ready to clap even for your late arrival. But late arrival of great leaders is also resented if it happens again and again.

DYNAMIC LEADERSHIP MEANS TO GET ADEQUATE STORE OF INFORMATION

Napoleon, one of the greatest warriors and conquerors in the history, was almost crazy for books. He ordered latest editions even in the battlefield. Amazing! His hunger for information became legendary. It is wisely said that knowledge is power. All successful managers, military generals and political leader always keep themselves informed. Without adequate information you can neither analyse the facts properly nor launch any rational operation.

Do your best to get as many facts from as many sources as possible. If your have information power on your side you can easily defeat a more powerful enemy or competitor. The richest person of the world till date John D. Rockefeller gave great priority to details. Alexander the Great spent a lot of time in getting right information and only then he launched his attacks. Akbar the great of India and Catherine the great of Russia always surrounded themselves with wise men – the men of knowledge. Meet any successful person today you will be surprised to know how well-informed that person is. Right information has always proved the biggest power and success tool of most of the great men and women.

DYNAMIC LEADERSHIP MEANS TO MANAGING YOUR ANGER

Anger not only makes enemies but also loses followers. You may be a very wise and pure-hearted person but if you have a habit of losing patience over trifles you will antagonise people. They will always pull your legs and run you down. You can imagine how difficult it will become for you to lead people to achieve your goals. And anger is not that bad in case it is under control and channelled towards the evils of the society. It is senseless and uncontrolled anger that is always immensely harmful. By willingness and constant practice you can learn the art of managing your anger. Repeat ‘OM’ ten times before allowing your anger to burst. Also visualise your anger to be melting down. This simple formula will help you to manage your anger.

DYNAMIC LEADERSHIP MEANS THAT CHARISMATIC PERSONALITY COUNTS

Charismatic leaders are more popular. Charisma mesmerises everybody as it generates hope in the power of a leader to do something for the public. Charisma is in fact an attractive personality and it can be developed. Many leaders get such a nice

upbringing and atmosphere from their parents that they get a good personality without making much efforts to develop it themselves. But there are others who work very hard to develop it. Prophet Mohammed, Guru Nanak, Napoleon, Mao, Mahatma Gandhi, Lenin, Bill Gates, Dhirubhai Ambani, all of them had to work very hard to inject the light of charisma in their personality.
To make your personality charismatic you need to take the following steps: 1.Have immovable self-confidence in you, 2.Keep all the facts to give you an air that you know all, 3.Surround yourself with capable persons, 4.Maintain an air of power with the help of money and material, 5.Give extra care to dress sense, 6.Be near the people and help them to solve problems.

DYNAMIC LEADERSHIP MEANS NOT TO BE TOO FRIENDLY

If you want to become a good leader you need to maintain a healthy distance from the people. Don’t be too friendly with anybody otherwise it may dampen your charisma. People have faith in their leader as they think their leader can do or achieve anything. Keep your problems to yourself. Never show the scars or injuries of your heart to your followers. They are not there to solve your personal problems but to take your help in solving their problems. If personal meeting is arranged advise the person to say everything in brief. Talk less and listen more.

DYNAMIC LEADERSHIP MEANS TO SHOW FOLLOWERS WHAT THEY WILL GAIN

Who wants to follow a person when there is no gain. A leader is a person who is capable enough to lead others to achieve a certain objective. A leader successfully convinces the people that he is the only one who can help them to solve their problems and lead them to success.

A leader understands people, knows their needs, arouses their hopes and shows them the right path, and above all he is willing to sacrifice his life for his followers. It is, therefore, necessary to tell the people what they will get if they keep faith in you. And you have to create confidence in them regarding your abilities. It sometimes takes years of efforts. You must be sincere and honest to them otherwise nobody is going to believe you. Prophet Mohammed and Mahatma Gandhi were recognised real leaders when they were past fifty. It took them decades of hard work and convincing before they were able to attract large number of followers.

DYNAMIC LEADERSHIP MEANS TO ADMIRE FOLLOWERS

Admire your followers often and they would love to follow you. Every person thinks that he is wise and does certain things in life which must be admired. Criticism dissuades and repels the people. Hard criticism may make them afraid for some time but secretly they start plotting against you and damage your winning potential. So give admiration whenever needed. But beware of flattery as it will lower your image and make the people suspect your objectives. A subtle dose of praising words, for a person or team who did a good job, is enough.

DYNAMIC LEADERSHIP MEANS TO BE ADEPT IN THE ART OF SPEAKING

The biggest and most effective tool of a leader is art of speaking. Good public speakers are equally praised by the people and the media. They make the people spellbound with their words. But the million-rupee question is how one can acquire the art. Some leaders become well-versed in this art by helpful and positive surroundings in a natural way. Others have to work very hard to master it. Everyone knows that the greatest leader of our country Mahatma Gandhi shivered to his bones whenever he got up to speak a few lines even before a small group of known persons. But with determination and constant practice he became one of the best speakers of the world. Follow these points diligently to become efficient in the art of speaking.

1. Get knowledge of the subject on which you want to speak. What will you say to your audience till you know what to say? Try to add some interesting information.

2. Practise your speech alone at your home before a mirror, before a small gathering of your family members and friends. (The great American leader Abraham Lincoln practised it by speaking loudly before the trees in the peaceful atmosphere of the jungle where he lived with his poor family.)

3. Your pronunciation should be good. You can acquire it by reading a newspaper loudly everyday. Take the help of a learned person if needed.

Why South Africa is on a path of economic renewal

South Africa is on a path of economic renewal

Written by Cyril Ramaphosa, President, South Africa – 24 Jan 2019

This article is part of the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting

This year, South Africa will celebrate 25 years of democracy, hold its sixth democratic national election and accelerate the process of economic revival and growth.

Over the last quarter century, the country has made remarkable progress in expanding opportunities for its people, most of whom still live with the effects of the apartheid system. Millions of poor South Africans have been provided with houses, social support, electricity and water. The black middle-class has grown significantly and access to healthcare and education have been expanded.

However, over the last decade, growth has been slow, progress in several areas has stalled and corruption has undermined key public institutions and state-owned enterprises. More South Africans are employed than ever before, yet our levels of inequality remain amongst the highest in the world.

In the last year, we have taken firm measures to correct this. As a result, the country is now emerging from a period of economic stagnation and political uncertainty and has entered a new era of renewal in support of our growth ambitions.

We have a firm foundation on which to build. South Africa’s high level of industrialisation, our position as a key manufacturing hub and services destination on the African continent, our strong financial sector are key drawcards for investors.

Furthermore, we are one of the most technologically resourced countries in Africa. We consistently rank highly in terms of internet bandwidth capacity and broadband penetration and have some of the highest mobile phone subscription rates on the continent.

Whether it is in mining, manufacturing, agriculture, clothing and textiles, services, tourism or the ocean economy, South Africa’s economy is as diverse as it is sophisticated. It is our ambition to diversify our export basket further and move towards higher productivity and enhanced global competitiveness.

We are aware of the critical policy missteps that led our economy to flounder and the effect that corruption and political patronage has had on public confidence.

But the political and economic landscape of South Africa has vastly improved. A year ago I laid out ambitious plans to turn our economy around, restore business confidence, deal decisively with corruption, and get our people working again.

We have registered significant gains. As part of an ambitious drive to raise $100 billion in new investment in five years, I appointed four investment envoys and assembled a specialised team to mobilise and facilitate investment. Just a few months into this journey, commitments of more than $6 billion show investors have confidence in the range of reform measures we have put in place.

Government is working with the local and international business community, labour, civil society and other stakeholders to drive our economic recovery. These social partners have also agreed on a range of actions to create new jobs and protect existing ones.

We promised to restore good governance, deal with corruption and restore faith in our public institutions. Commissions of inquiry have been established to investigate the capture of government institutions and key state-owned entities by private interests. We have appointed new boards and executives to these entities and begun steering their recovery in earnest.

Efforts to introduce a new era of accountability are taking hold. The state revenue service, a vital cog in the economy, is being stabilised. Confidence in the criminal justice system is also being restored through the appointment of new leadership teams.

We have made important headway in addressing policy uncertainty and inconsistency. Through consultation with all stakeholders, we have revised the country’s mining policy, balancing the need for growth with the need for transformation of the industry. After years of delay, a plan outlining our country’s energy mix until 2050 is finally on the table.

We have begun a process to pave the way for faster and more sustainable land reform – vital to provide policy certainty and predictability and to support the stable growth of our economy. This ongoing dialogue between different sectors of our society has the potential to forge a comprehensive, sustainable solution to an issue that has divided our nation for centuries.

We are committed to pursuing these economic and political reforms necessary to restore the confidence of our citizens as well as domestic and international investors.

As political turmoil plagues the globe, South Africa once again stands out as a beacon of hope and co-operation in a new world order. All nations’ economic destinies remain intertwined and as a bridge between the developing and developed world, South Africa offers a rejuvenated vision for a future of shared prosperity.

This seemingly good message of hope displayed above, must be re-evaluated by comparing it to the reality in 2020/21. It will be almost impossible to rectify the huge scale of incompetency build-up throughout all Government entities and levels. It will need a “Superman” or a few of them, not even to speak of the huge build-up to a culture of corruption!

So far, no senior head has yet rolled and that has nothing to do with the previous dispensation before 1994.

Change the way you think and put big change in your pocket

Change is a very powerful word in this 21st century society, but many people are afraid to change. The word change in the dictionary simply means ‘to become different, or to make something or somebody different’.
My intention with this article is to present to the reader that change is good and positive and something not to be afraid of, especially when it comes to increasing your wealth. Many of us desire and dream that we could one day be wealthy and financially free.

Change is a very powerful word in this 21st century society, but many people are afraid to change. The word change in the dictionary simply means ‘to become different, or to make something or somebody different’.
My intention with this article is to present to the reader that change is good and positive and something not to be afraid of, especially when it comes to increasing your wealth. Many of us desire and dream that we could one day be wealthy and financially free, never having to worry about finance again, so that things would be different, and ultimately, that things would change.

Change confronts us all with a choice – the choice to make a change or remain the same. Now I know that none of us really want our finances to remain the same, otherwise things like Lotto would go broke, so what type of change am I thinking?

Have you heard of Online Businesses, or Internet Marketing? There are many people around the world developing new and exciting businesses online, and are changing their lives from relying on their weekly pay cheque, to having cheques consistently week after week after week, all year round and year after year, being delivered to their mailbox, simply because they started and developed an online business.

Like any business it takes blood, sweat and tears before you can sit back and reap the rewards, but being determined to change your finances forever is the first goal you must keep in the forefront of your thoughts and your actions. Just as every person is different, so is every Internet business opportunity, but the opportunity is there none the less, and the opportunity is there to bring change.

Online businesses are not acceptable and designed for everyone, just as not everyone is suited to working from home with an online business. But if you’re a little bit fed up with working for the man, and earning money for Uncle Sam, and finding that week after week your money is going out more than it is coming in, then maybe it is time for a change – a Big Change.

I sincerely recommend investigating and researching the opportunities that are available in the Online Business world, for as sure as the sun is ready to set tomorrow, tomorrow will come with or without change, so why don’t we take the plunge and prepare for change today, and make a definite and determined change to your pocket tomorrow.

Understand that it is acceptable to examine the opportunities that are available, and there are many of them, but at some point you are going to have to take the plunge and jump in and get started, or walk away from the pool of online potential and resources, and remain a slave to your daytime job forever.

Once you have decided on a suitable Internet business, give it every opportunity to grow. Look at your new business like a young plant needing to grow roots, and by giving it time to establish its potential of providing much fruit, you will eventually benefit enormously year after year, in season and out of season.

The finance that comes in from successful online businesses is called residual income, which just keeps on coming year in and year out, just like the fruit of a tree, except your business will bear fruit all year round.
Remember, it is OK to dip your toe in the water and check the temperature, but at some time you will have to develop the confidence to go for it and get wet.

A decision to change today will bring positive change tomorrow, and change tomorrow will significantly bring an abundance of Change to your pocket in the not too distant future.

If you can dream it you can achieve it

Impossible is just a word.

Make dreams come true image

Everyone, at some point of his or her life, has dreamed of being somebody special, somebody big. Who hasn’t fantasized about being the one who hits the game-winning homer? Who hasn’t dreamed of being the homecoming queen? And how many times have we dreamed of being rich, or successful, or happy with our relationships?

Often, we dream big dreams and have great aspirations. Unfortunately, our dreams remain just that – dreams. And our aspirations easily collect dust in our attic.

This is a sad turn of events in our life. Instead of experiencing exciting adventures in self-actualization, we get caught up in the humdrum of living from day-to-day just barely existing.

But you know what? Life could be so much better, if only we learned to aim higher.

The most common problem to setting goals is the word impossible. Most people get hung up thinking I can’t do this. It’s too hard. It’s too impossible. No one can do this.

However, if everyone thought that, there would be no inventions, no innovations, and no breakthroughs in human accomplishment.
Remember that scientists were baffled when they took a look at the humble bumblebee. Theoretically, they said, it was impossible for the bumblebee to fly. Unfortunately for the bumble, bee no one has told it so. So fly it does.

On the other hand, some people suffer from dreaming totally outrageous dreams and not acting on them. The result? Broken dreams, and tattered aspirations.

If you limit yourself with self-doubt, and self-limiting assumptions, you will never be able to break past what you deem impossible. If you reach too far out into the sky without working towards your goal, you will find yourself clinging on to the impossible dream.

Try this exercise. Take a piece of paper and write down some goals in your life. Under one header, list down things ‘you know you can do’. Under another header, write the things ‘you might be able to do.’ And under one more, list the things that that are ‘impossible for you to do.’

Now look at all the headers strive every day to accomplish the goals that are under things ‘you know you can do’. Check them when you are able to accomplish them. As you slowly are able to check all of your goals under that heading, try accomplishing the goals under the other header-the one that reads ‘you might be able to do.’

As of the items you wrote under things I could do are accomplished, you can move the goals that are under things that are ‘impossible for you to do’ to the list of things ‘you might be able to do.’

As you iterate through this process, you will find out that the goals you thought were impossible become easier to accomplish. And the impossible begin to seem possible after all.

You see, the technique here is not to limit your imagination. It is to aim high, and start working towards that goal little by little. However, it also is unwise to set a goal that is truly unrealistic.

Those who just dream towards a goal without working hard end up disappointed and disillusioned. On the other hand, if you told someone a hundred years ago that it was possible for man to be on the moon, they would laugh at you. If you had told them that you could send mail from here to the other side of the world in a few seconds, they would say you were out of your mind. But, through sheer desire and perseverance, these impossible dreams are now realities.

Thomas Edison once said that genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Nothing could be truer. For one to accomplish his or her dreams, there has to be had work and discipline. But take note that that 1% has to be a think-big dream, and not some easily accomplished one. Ask any gym rat and he or she will tell you that there can be no gains unless you are put out of your comfort zone. Remember the saying, “No pain, and no gain”? That is as true as it can be.

So dream on, friend! Don’t get caught up with your perceived limitations. Think big and work hard to attain those dreams. As you step up the ladder of progress, you will just about find out that the impossible has just become a little bit more possible.

“Who else wants to have the ability to create, build and obtain anything you want in life by using the ability to think really, really big!” Learn how to utilize the unlimited powers of your powerful mind by learning about the magic of thinking really, really big in the 21st century’s Internet age!

Aren’t you sick of mediocrity?

I mean, come on! Living a sub-par life… being content with low pay, poor motivation and a lack of dreams – it’s a recipe for creating a human zombie if you ask me. Believe me, if you think what I’m talking here is ‘alien talk’, then you are missing the point.

Humans are never created to be content mediocrity in mind – because we are all destined for greatness. We are all designed to do big things!

But this is not the case with people.

We all are living testaments of self-fulfilling prophecies and that is why our lives often do not reflect the glory that we are meant to have! “People fail on many levels because they have a poisonous mind set!”

Let’s be truly honest with ourselves, here…

If you are not rich, energetic and enjoying the life that you’re supposed to enjoy, then you are selling yourself short! But that is because of the way you are thinking.

A good tree will bear forth good fruit. Likewise, the result in our lives is the result of our thinking. Our minds are like the roots and when you have a good ‘root’ you will have a good fruit in life.

The rottenness in people’s thinking leaves festering problems throughout their lives and it affects their income, their relationships, their careers, their spiritual state… nothing works when the mind is thinking small!

Do you face the following problems in your own life?
– Why is it that no matter how hard you work, you only accomplish ‘this’ much?
– Why are you having constant arguments with other people?
– No matter how much you save, it is only a pittance?
– Business ventures seem to fail as soon as they start?
– Lack of goals, not knowing how to build a good life in the next 5 years?

No wonder people do not succeed in life! They are thinking like a loser! Their goals are really small compared to what they are capable of.
Make no mistake about it. “The fact that their mind set is undeniably wired for failure, it is a sure sign that they will have a hard time succeeding in anything because their minds will always work against them!”

It is time to get straight down to the source. There is this saying that goes – “As a man thinketh – so is he…”

Think small and you will get small results.

However, there is another problem when it comes to thinking big… it is the problem of our subconscious mind!

Our minds are so wired for failure that for every ‘Yes’ we hear from others, we hear another 17 ‘No’s’. It is a really sad fact for life that even when we want to excel, people will hold us back and we’ll often go back to square one.

The thinking of mediocrity is often reinforced by dead beat friends, old parents (who are set in their ways of thinking), negative media and all kinds of things that lowers the consciousness of others. Now that you are aware of these negative forces, we must make a change in our lives. That is why this will be really valuable to you.

Behold…

“What if you had the exact tools you’ll ever need to rewire your brain and get any result you want in life? Will this change your future?” Imagine… if you have everything you’ll ever need to jump-start your understanding on this important subject.

These books will give you the Immunity of the ‘small’ thinking of others.
These books will arm you to the teeth and help you to build strength.
These “life guides” will help you to dream big and unlock all your potential once you are done with it. I know it will work for you.

I know it will work for you because I’ve walked down this road with a failure mind set before. My small thinking got me nowhere and I do not desire anyone to go down this lonely path that I had walked.

Time is running short. You have only about 80 years to live on this earth (God willing…) Are you going to squander it by living small? Living a mediocre life?

Or are you ready to take life by the hand and become the star you were meant to be? This may be your last chance! Behold…

“Introducing… The magic of thinking really, really big in the Internet era!”

Planning a new business start-up

Business plan header image

Required planning for a new business start-up

The importance of planning ahead for a new business start-up.

Although owning your own business may be the best thing you ever did, it can have serious drawbacks, when you first start out. People often have unrealistic ideas and expectations about running their own business, thinking that it’s going to provide them a six figure income right from start, especially those who buy into a franchise or established retail business or those who join online affiliate programs.

When they see that they aren’t earning as much as they thought they would, they begin to worry that they have made a mistake or that they have been scammed and start worrying about their income and how they are going to pay the bills. Making a business plan in advance solves a great deal of the stresses that are involved when you start building your business.

The reason many new business owners have trouble making money is because they fail to plan for the days that are going to yield less income. It can take a new business on average anywhere from 3-5 years to start turning a decent profit. This is true even of franchises since the early days will involve more income going to the corporation than the owner. You have to make sure that you have a proper business plan for that.

How can you plan for the early days of low income? For one thing you can make sure that you save more money before you invest in a business so that you have enough cash for your living expenses until you start earning a profit from your business. If you are leaving a position with another company to start your own business and are entitled to any kind of severance package put those aside in a special account in case you need them to assist with personal expenses until your business is profitable enough to operate on its own.

One option that many people do not even know exists is that of a loan for operating capital. The business owner can borrow money to see him through until the business becomes self-supporting. Often those who know of this option fail to utilize it properly by setting their goals too high or being over-confident about the time frame for their success, and end up having to return to the bank for more operating capital. This should be a part of your business plan, and in order to make sure that you have set realistic goals for yourself you should sit down with a financial adviser or accountant to ensure that your business plans includes realistic goals for income generation.

Making sure you have all of the working capital you need before you open your business can save you hours of worry and also save you from having to prepare another business plan when you require additional funds.
Starting a new business requires more than just a good idea!

Once you’ve done this, you will realize the significance of unsecured start-up funding. Rarely does an individual have the savings or personal resources to put a business plan into action completely on their own. Often, even when one thinks this is the case, deeper development and planning dissuades this initial thought.

Small business funding can be a rather involved subject, filling shelves upon shelves of books at libraries and bookstores. The truth is though, you don’t need a how-to book to get good funding. You simply need a good lender. Being able to determine once is what really counts.

An unsecured small business start-up loan gives you the start-up funding you need, but getting a start-up business loan can sometimes be more difficult than it seems. Most lenders today require collateral for small or large start up business loans, but collateral may be something you have never thought of before. When you obtained a mortgage, your home served as the collateral. When you got a car, the vehicle was the collateral. But when you’re seeking a new business loan, you probably don’t have the commercial collateral you need yet. Your only option then is to offer your personal assets as security for the loan – which is a risk you understandably may be hesitant about.

Collateral is often the biggest obstacle to the prospective business owner. Not only does a new business not yet have any commercial collateral to provide; but it is asking a lot for an entrepreneur to put his hard earned personal assets at risk in order to start a new business venture. Yet, without collateral, getting an unsecured business loan can sometimes seem impossible.

The good news is, though rare, some companies have specialized programs for exactly this scenario. An unsecured business start-up loan can get a new business owner the funding he needs to cover initial business costs, without having to provide collateral and place his or her assets risk. With this type of financing plan, the lender utilizes something the borrower has worked hard for and should be able to take advantage of – his good credit. With this approach, the lender can still an unsecured business start-up loan at great rates and with a variety of programs.

The small business loan application process can also be made difficult by the imposition of restrictions on how the loan proceeds can be used. This takes away the borrower’s freedom to use the funds as he or she may have seen fit. You can escape these hassles by using an online application for an unsecured small business loan.

Today, web lenders offer a new window of opportunity for small businesses and individuals that need a fast start up loan approval process. Time is money! Lenders now offer cash in as little as 72 hours, with no tax forms, no business plans, and no collateral! Such lenders offer the straightest line to unsecured business loan funding, at great rates. In the modern world, financial products as efficient and dynamic as the business world must be available.

Applying for an unsecured small business loan is easy, all the business owner need to do is just go on line and submit their loan details. Then the lenders will refer back to you with the loan decision in a few days.

GETTING GUIDANCE FOR YOUR NEW BUSINESS IDEA:

Many people dream of leaving their nine-to-five jobs and going into business for themselves, but very few actually understand how to start or sustain a profitable E-Biz. In a traditional job, you can always approach a supervisor or co-worker with questions about how to execute a project better, perform a task more efficiently, or handle a particular situation. However, once you venture into business on your own, you’re literally on your own – and that’s a very frightening place for most people. That’s why, when starting your own business, it’s imperative that you get guidance from the get-go.

One does not have to go it alone. If you don’t have a support system in place, or any clear sense of direction, it’s easy to grow frustrated or scared, and retreat to your comfort zone without achieving the independence you dream of. A reputable business coach can teach you the best start-up practices and help you implement winning business strategies. Another option is to join an online forum, where you can present your questions to other E-Biz owners who bring to the table the seasoned advice of those who’ve already achieved e-commerce success.

Most new E-Biz owners face exactly the same issues and challenges – and they’re a whole lot easier to handle when you have someone helping you, who’s already faced them successfully.

UNDERSTAND THE PITFALLS OF A NEW BUSINESS START-UP:

Having mentored thousands of new entrepreneurs, Jenkins sees the two most common problems they confront on a regular basis as determining correct priorities and overcoming what he calls “paralysis by analysis.”

1. To run your business effectively, you have to organize your priorities. The difference between a successful E-Biz and a failed E-Biz is often determined by where you spend the bulk of your efforts and energy. As a new entrepreneur, you have limited time and funds. Spending too much of either on peripheral matters means you’re neglecting your core concerns. 
It’s easy to waste tremendous amounts of time trying to learn the ins and outs that are necessary to manage your business, but that don’t really generate a profit in the long run. In an online business you should have a three-fold focus:

• finding the right products
• driving targeted traffic
• converting that traffic into sales

That’s it. All other issues are secondary – you have to deal with them in your day-to-day operations, but don’t lose sight of the big picture.

2. Another common problem with e-commerce newcomers is that they tend to over-analyse every scenario and develop “paralysis by analysis.” When you don’t have all the answers, or aren’t certain of your next move, it’s easy to just sit back and procrastinate. But making excuses or putting things off will cripple your ability to do even the most fundamental things to grow your business. It’s important to deal with the business aspect of things in a timely manner. You need to treat your Internet business like a real business – time is money, and you can’t waste it being indecisive.

Launching your own E-Biz may seem like an intimidating prospect; but you largely improve your chances of a positive outcome when you find experienced, knowledgeable mentors to help you get started right. States Jenkins, “Starting a venture is always a risk. But you can greatly facilitate your own success by seeking out qualified support to help you find your focus and keep your business moving forward in the right direction.”

TOP TIPS FOR STARTING YOUR NEW BUSINESS:

Prices are going up, up, up and just about everybody is needing a little extra cash these days. This is probably the best time ever for you to own your own small business.

Now before you start thinking you’ll have to get a bank loan, remember that you can own a small home-based business for just a few dollars–or even FREE.

You can easily run your home business from your kitchen table and, frankly, you can finance your business from a few bucks you save out of the grocery money.

How much time will it take to run your home business? That depends on several things, but mostly it depends on how hard you want to work your business. If you’ve got lots of time through the day you can work your business, then you can go after it full force. If you’ve already got a job or two, you can work your business in the evening, in the morning before work, or on the weekends.

The amount of money you earn will largely depend on how hard you work your business. If you’re full-time, your business can start out earning hundreds each month and move up to several thousand dollars a month in earnings.

Work your business part-time and you can earn anywhere from an extra $100 to $1,000 per month. And that might be just what you need to supplement your income from your regular job.

What kind of business should you own? Try to find one that matches your talents and needs. If you like to talk to people and sell them on your ideas, you would do very well in a business that requires a little selling. You’ll enjoy it and make a lot of money at it.

If the idea of having to sell something makes you want to run the other way, don’t worry. There are businesses that require almost no selling. About all you have to do is use the products you sell and talk to people about the products when they ask.

Of course, new customers rarely fall into your lap. You have to make an effort to find new prospects. Here are several simple and cheap ways to get new customers.

1. Talk to everyone you know about your business. More than a few will take an interest and want to buy from you.
2. Send out letters or postcards. Send 10 per week. You can get names and addresses from clubs, associations, the chamber of commerce, and “list brokers” who are in the business of selling addresses. Check your Yellow Pages under “Direct Mail.”
3. Put up a web site. Include all your experiences, products, and ideas on it, then register the site with Google. It’s free to do and pretty soon all the search engines will include your site’s listing.
4. Put ads in email newsletters. It’s a very cheap way to reach thousands of people who are probably very interested in a home business. Search Google for “e-zine directory” to find sites that list thousands of email newsletters.
5. Sell your products or service as a fundraiser for a local non-profit. They can sell the product you supply. It’s a win for them and a BIG win for you, as you’ll make money from those sales and often grab new customers in the process.
6. Sell at flea markets in your area. Get a low-cost booth and tell your story to anyone who will listen. That’s what flea markets are for, and you won’t feel one bit out of place.
7. If you already have a web site, promote your business on your site and convert your audience into customers.

These are a few time-tested ideas to help you get started. If you’re getting the itch to start your own business, go for it. It’ll be the smartest thing you’ll ever do.

Top 11 proven classified ad selling tips to guarantee a successful sale

It’s Spring Cleaning Time!  The weather is getting warmer and it is time to dig through those closets, garages and storage areas and turn your unused items into cash!  Traditionally, this is the busiest time of the year for classified advertising.  Motor vehicles and recreational vehicles are especially big sellers during the warm weather.  If you are considering selling, now is the time.  Hundreds of potential buyers are out there reading the Sunday morning newspaper every week, so take advantage of the opportunity to sell your items.  Below you will find some great tips to help you get the ball rolling.

PREPARE: Determine the items around your home that you no longer need. Once you have collected these items, confirm that they are in working order and in good selling condition.  If items have been in storage for a long period of time, you may need to clean them up to make them more attractive to potential buyers. 

RESEARCH: After all items are collected, do your research. Determine the value of your items and decide whether it would be worth your time and effort to place a classified ad.  Some things will do well on their own while others may do better in a garage sale setting.  If certain items do not have enough value to justify placing an advertisement and you are not interested in hosting a garage sale, donate these items to a local charity for a nice tax deduction. 

WHERE TO ADVERTISE: Once you have the items sorted out, you need to decide the best method of advertising. Most items will do best advertised in your daily newspaper since you will be able to reach a local audience.  Online classifieds generally do not receive as many local buyers, but most are free so you may want to place an ad there as well just to cover all the bases.  If you are selling a larger item such as a car, motorcycle, motor home, etc., you will also want to place prominent for sale signs on the items themselves.  You can also utilize bulletin boards in your local community to post a free advertisement. 

DRAFTING YOUR AD: What are the most attractive selling features of your items for sale? Decide which of these features you want to highlight in your advertisement.  Look for classified ads for similar items to get an idea of how they are written.   Check out the competition to see how your item is better or different than the items that will be running alongside your ad.

WRITING YOUR AD: Create a catchy title to get your reader’s attention. This will spark an interest in your classified ad.  Always include the brand name when applicable.  Price should only be included in the title if it is an obvious selling point.  Next, you need to write the body text of your ad and entice buyers even further with the details.  Make your description clear and factual.  Provide specific details in what it is that makes your item stand out from the others.  Be honest in your representation and do not make your item appear better than it actually is.  Always include the price in your ad.  Take some time to view other classified ads for similar items in your newspaper.  This will help you determine a fair asking price for your item.   Keep in mind, just because you paid $1,500 for your dining room set, does not mean you will receive that much for it on resale.  Be realistic in your expectations.  Furthermore, if you will only be available during certain times of the day to discuss your item, make a note of this in your advertisement so buyers know the best time to reach you.  If possible, include your email address.

INCLUDING PHOTOS: A picture is worth a thousand words. Some local newspapers provide you with the option to include photos with your classified ad. Be sure to include the photos!  When buyers have the opportunity to see an article for sale they have a higher degree of interest and are more likely to buy when they follow up by telephone or email to ask questions or to get more information.  If your newspaper does not offer photos or the photo option is too expensive, you can use an online classified photo hosting service. 

COMMUNICATING WITH BUYERS: Do your best to be available when customers call for information regarding your item. Be polite and helpful and answer all questions to the best of your knowledge. 

SCHEDULING APPOINTMENTS: If you receive numerous calls for your item, be sure to space out the appointments so that you will have enough time to spend with each buyer and your appointments will not overlap. Safety tip:  Whenever possible, have someone home with you when a buyer is coming over to look at your item.  You really can never be too careful when dealing with people you have never met before.

NEGOTIATION: Decide before you negotiate, the lowest amount you will be willing to accept for your item. This will assure a smoother negotiation process.

PAYMENT: Never accept a check for your item. You should only accept cash or money orders.  If a buyer decides they want the item, but they do not have cash on them, always take a deposit to hold the item until they are able to come back.  Be sure to set a deadline for them to return with the balance due.  Even though you have a deposit, do not stop showing your item since the deal is not final until you have the cash in your hand.   If someone else is also interested, tell them you just received an offer, but you will be happy to take down their name and number in case the deal falls through.  This will give you more options should the original buyer back out of the sale.

FOURSQUARE: Use the foursquare code for your web page on your images to overcome the limitation where web URL references are not allowed by some classified sites.

That’s it!  Keep these selling tips in mind and you will be on the road to a successful sale.   Take your time, be thorough and most of all have fun!  If you follow the steps outlined above, you will be turning your unused items into cash in no time.

How to write a great press release and increase press release distribution

Every online business should have a marketing and advertising plan. While paid advertising – especially Internet advertising – can drive highly targeted traffic to your site, many online businesses overlook a key component of any marketing and advertising plan: press releases and press release distribution. A great press release can garner the kind of exposure that money can’t buy; in essence, it’s free advertising. Press release distribution is an extremely cost-effective way to get the word out to thousands, hundreds of thousands, and perhaps millions of potential customers.

Many business owners might respond, “But I’ve written press releases and haven’t received a single response.” If that’s the case, the lack of response is most likely either due to either a poorly written press release or poor press release distribution.

Although virtually anyone can string words together, writing a press release that will grab and hold the attention of the media is an art. Many press release services also offer press release writing services; in most cases, it’s worth the money to leave it to the professionals. If you do want to write your own press release, though, here are some tips:

1. At the top of the release, include a contact person’s name, phone number, and email address, as well as the URL of your website. It’s imperative that whomever is listed will be available to speak to the media. In other words, don’t decide to distribute your press release and then head off on vacation.

2. Make the topic timely. Unless yours is a Fortune 1000 company, simply announcing that your product exists will draw only a yawn from the media. Find a hook. Your hook could be an upcoming holiday, for example. Better yet, find a way to piggyback your product or service onto something that’s currently making news. Reporters are always looking for new angles for their follow-up stories.

3. Don’t forget the Five W’s. A reporter should be able to read the first paragraph of your release and know who, what, where, when, and why. If they don’t find the information there, they won’t read any further.

4. Incorporate quotes from an “expert.” The expert could be you, the CEO of your company, or someone with whom you collaborate. The bottom line is that he or she should be able to authoritatively speak about the topic of the release, and should be available to the media for interviews.

5. Keep it short. A press release is a teaser to get the media interested in your company. Say what you need to say in 400-500 words. If reporters want more information, they’ll contact you.

6. A picture is worth 1,000 words. If you’re promoting a product, have high-resolution (300 dpi) images available, and state their availability at the end of your press release. Editors will choose to cover a product with a photo over a product without every single time.

When it comes to press release distribution, use press release services. Ideally, you should use a press release distribution service that can target your release to members of the media that specifically cover your market or industry. Consider a press release distribution service that offers online print distribution, fax distribution, and audio distribution.

Keep in mind that press release distribution can take awhile to bear fruit. In contrast to websites, which continually publish new content, magazines often have months of lead time. Your press release may get some immediate responses, and continue to receive a trickle of responses for months to come.

Press release writing and press release distribution should be a cornerstone of your marketing and advertising efforts. Issuing a new press release every three to four weeks keeps your company in front of the media, and has a cumulative effect of increasing the effectiveness of your press releases.

Top 10 tips for writing a good press release

Writing a press release doesn’t need to be difficult. Here are 10 tips for writing a successful press release.

1. You are writing for journalists. Press releases aren’t for customers or consumers they are for reporters, journalists who will use them as a starting point for a larger story or feature. Write your story as you would like to have it told. Press releases written as sales pieces will be completely ignored. The points you make in your press release and the order in which you make them may direct the journalist in how to develop the story.

2. Start with a strong “lead”. The first paragraph of the press release is known as the “lead”. The lead needs to be strong, communicating your message quickly and concisely. You need to use your headline and first paragraph effectively so that they standalone and that if only those portions were to be read, there would be enough information to understand what the release is about. The rest of your press release should provide the detail. Journalists see maybe thousands of press releases a day, you have a few seconds to grab your their attention.

3. What is your angle? The media are always on the look out for a good story. Your press release needs to be more than just. fact, it needs to be newsworthy. Understanding why journalists would find your story interesting is the key to success. Think about the release from the journalist’s point of view, put yourself in their shoes. It is best to make your press release timely and to tie it to current events or social issues if possible. Find a good angle, a good news hook and you have the start of a good press release.

4. Who, what, where, when and why. A good press release needs to answer all of the “W” questions (who, what, where, when and why), providing the journalist with useful information about your organization, product, service or event. If your press release reads like an advertisement or sales pitch, dump it.

5. Why should anyone care? Company launches, new websites and changes of management happen all the time and so aren’t interesting. You need to concentrate on what makes your new company, web site, CEO or product unique. Ask yourself the question, “Why should anyone care?” Concentrate on the aspects of your press release that makes it different.

6. Add the human touch. Always use real life stories about how your organization identified a problem and solved it. How did your service or product fulfill a need or help the community. Real life examples communicate the benefits of using your product or service in a powerful way.

7. Keep to the point. Use enough words to tell your story, no more and no less. Don’t pad your release with unnecessary adjectives or flowery language. But at the same time make each word count.

8. Limit the jargon. The best way to communicate your news is to speak plainly. You may need to use some jargon or industry specific lingo, but limit it to the minimum. Industry specific terms are only understood by people in the same industry where as your press release is aimed at a general readership.

9. Add an “About” section. Make sure you add an “About” section where you describe your company and services. This will be useful for setting the press release in a context. Don’t forget to add the URL of your website.

10. Add good contact information. If a journalist picks up on your press release they will want to talk with you. Just adding your website URL isn’t enough. As a minimum you need to add a contact name and an email address. Even better add a phone number where you can be contacted.

Service delivery by Governments

Job enrichment header image

Better service delivery by Governments

The level of service delivery by Governments to their citizens are generally not up to scratch, simply because they are not as accustomed to it as private businesses.

Service delivery levels must be measured on a regular basis as is done in the private sector. Governments tend to measure only financial budgets and financial results by the end of a certain period.

Improved performance by all organisations

Poor service delivery seems to be a common problem for Governments worldwide. In particular it seems to have been a huge problem for the Government of South African over the past couple of years since 1994.

NOT ONLY BUDGETS AND FINANCIAL ACTUAL:

It is actually very easy to rectify. There is a misconception that if one controls budgets and financial statements, everything is honky dory. It is, however, far from the truth. This is usually where Governments make the big mistake. It is not only about financial budgets and financial results per period. Far from it!

It will in most cases be too late for any significant interventions!

ALSO GOALS, OBJECTIVES AND JOB TASKS:

The degree of achievement of goals, objectives and job tasks, on all levels throughout a whole organisation, must also be measured and monitored on a regular basis.

WHAT ABOUT RISK AND CORRUPTION?

Furthermore, one must also be able to detect the aspect of financial risk and financial corruption, before it becomes too late.

The whole point is that parliamentary oversight committees or bodies are not able to detect deviations and problems much earlier, before it grows out of proportion into unmanageable problems. Time wise, they are too far away in the hierarchy of command. It can only be achieved if oversight begins at lower levels of supervision, within departments.

As long as oversight committees just focus on budgets and financial results and ignore achievements of strategic objectives, nothing of old will change and there will still be no inspiration for departmental improvements.

All Governments are in need of a proper performance management system.

Job enrichment

Job enrichment header image

What Is the Meaning of Job Enrichment?, by Neil Kokemuller


Job enrichment is a common motivational technique used by organizations to give an employee greater satisfaction in his work. It means giving an employee additional responsibilities previously reserved for his manager or other higher-ranking positions. In essence, an enriched job gives the employee more self-management in his duties.

Purpose

Job enrichment, job rotation and job enlargement are three examples of ways employers try to make jobs more satisfying. Whereas job enlargement adds broader responsibilities to a position, job enrichment gives the employee more vertical authority. The objective is to give an employee more personal accountability for the work that he does. By doing so, the employer hopes that he feels more of a sense of self-worth from his role in the business.

Autonomy

A primary trait of job enrichment is autonomy, meaning that the employee has less responsibility to report on his work tasks to a supervisor. This frees him to focus more on his work, making decisions and working to accomplish company and career goals. Enrichment reduces that potential of micromanagement from a supervisor, which can oppress and demoralize an otherwise competent and capable employee.

Benefits to the Company

Companies turn to job enrichment as a way of boosting the organizational morale. The more valuable each employee feels, the more motivated they are to produce top results. Also, companies can operate more efficiently when employees bear significant responsibility for their work and results. In some cases, using enrichment can minimize layers of management. Plus, with job enrichment, employees learn more vertical skills that equip them for a higher level position.

Benefits to the Employee

Employees are more mentally stimulated when they take on authoritative, decision-making roles. This keeps them mentally focused on their tasks and the objectives of the company. Also, ambitious employees are more likely to stick with an employer if they are trusted to perform higher level duties. Better career opportunities may also come as you train for new skills and learn how to work through important workplace problems and solutions.

Source: https://work.chron.com/meaning-job-enrichment-5481.html


Job enrichment can be described as a medium through which management can motivate self-driven employees by assigning them additional responsibility, normally reserved for higher level employees. By doing this, employees feel like their work has meaning and is important to the company. This theory is based on the premise that employees have a natural tendency to want to succeed and are eager to be trusted with a bigger role in the company. When these type of workers aren’t being challenged, they tend to slack off and not give their best effort because they view their task to be below their skill set. Conversely when an employee is given autonomy over his/her work, they tend to feel responsible for the outcome of the project and will try to put forward the best end result possible. Overall Job Enrichment is essential to the workplace because it helps prevent feelings of repetitiveness in the day-to-day operations from hindering productivity.


Origin

Frederick Herzberg, an American psychologist, originally developed the concept of ‘job enrichment’ in 1968, in an article that he published on pioneering studies. The concept stemmed from Herzberg’s motivator-hygiene theory, which is based on the premise that job attitude is a construct of two independent factors, namely job satisfaction and job dissatisfaction. Job satisfaction encompasses intrinsic factors that arise from the work itself, including achievement and advancement; whilst job dissatisfaction stems from factors external to the actual work, including company policy and the quality of supervision.

He came up with this term while he was working on his “two factor theory” which states that both satisfaction (e.g. job satisfaction) and dissatisfaction are driven by separate factors that are completely independent of each other. To this effect he implies that just because an individual experiences a decrease in dissatisfaction, does not mean that the result is also an increase in satisfaction.

Advantages and disadvantages

Advantages

Learn new skills: By having more responsibilities, the employee will have the chance to work on new tasks and therefore learn new skills. Decision making can lead to the employee to think, decide, and try new things. By having to learn new skills, the employee has the opportunity to become proficient at certain tasks and even become experts.

Reduce boredom : Job enrichment focuses on giving employees more variety and responsibilities. The target of job enrichment is to reduce the chance of boredom from the repetitive, tedious activities.
Creates a better work environment: The net result of job enrichment is an overall more positive environment that promotes maximum productivity. This is simply because employees who are treated better tend to have better attitudes around the workplace and tend to spread that positivism around the office.

Disadvantages

Lack of preparation: Because employees are given more activities and responsibilities in job enrichment, they do not necessarily have the right skills or experience for the job. Because the employee is not prepared or trained enough to do the activity, then they may not be as efficient as someone who is already trained or skilled in that particular activity. A s a result, they may have a lower productivity rate.

Heavier Workload: Job enrichment increases the employee’s overall workload. This requires skill in re-prioritization for the employee. Some employees may not be able to quickly adjust to their new responsibilities. Employees may feel overloaded and tired, so they may have a lower productivity rate.

Clash with Non-participants: Understandably, not every employee at a company can participate in job enrichment. Those who cannot join may feel disconnected from the company and not part of the team . The employees who cannot join may even feel jealous towards participants.

Poor Performance: As a result of lack of preparation and heavier workload, some employees may not perform as efficient as prior to job enrichment. These employees may actually work better in a non job-enriching environment. By not doing as well as desired, they may feel inept. Their poor performance may lead to demotions, which tends to have a negative impact on the employee’s self–confidence and motivation.

Techniques

Job enrichment, as a managerial activity includes a three steps technique:

1. Turn employees’ effort into performance:

Ensuring that objectives are well-defined and understood by everyone. The overall corporate mission statement should be communicated to all. Individual’s goals should also be clear. Each employee should know exactly how he/she fits into the overall process and be aware of how important their contributions are to the organization and its customers.
Providing adequate resources for each employee to perform well. This includes support functions like information technology, communication technology, and personnel training and development.

Creating a supportive corporate culture. This includes peer support networks, supportive management, and removing elements that foster mistrust and politicking.

Free flow of information. Eliminate secrecy.

Provide enough freedom to facilitate job excellence. Encourage and reward employee initiative. Flextime or compressed hours could be offered.
Provide adequate recognition, appreciation, and other motivators.
Provide skill improvement opportunities. This could include paid education at universities or on the job training.

Provide job variety. This can be done by job sharing or job rotation programs.

It may be necessary to re-engineer the job process. This could involve redesigning the physical facility, redesign processes, change technologies, simplification of procedures, elimination of repetitiveness, redesigning authority structures.

2. Link employees performance directly to reward:

Clear definition of the reward is a must.

Explanation of the link between performance and reward is important.
Make sure the employee gets the right reward if performs well.

If reward is not given, explanation is needed.

3. Make sure the employee wants the reward. How to find out?

Ask them

Use surveys (checklist, listing, questions). Once you know what the employees want, give them the tools they need to earn it and follow through on your word.

Versus job enlargement

Job enrichment can be contrasted to job enlargement which simply increases the number of tasks without changing the challenge. Job enrichment is seen as a vertical job restructuring technique where the focus is on giving the employee more authority, independence, and control over the manner the activity is completed.

On the other hand, job enlargement is seen as a horizontal restructuring technique where the focus is merely increasing the number of assignments but does not change the overall authority, autonomy, and control of the projects.

Job enlargement’s impact on the work environment is not always the most positive due to the fact that it is largely just an increase in work for the employee and not really a step up in responsibility.

Job enrichment on the other hand is a very motivational technique in the management world. The act of enriching an employee’s job not only is a sign of respect but it also shows that the employer actually cares about the employee as a person. This creates a desire for the employee to want to pay the employer back in the form of hard work, loyalty, and dedication to the company.

Different thinking methods to generate newness

Thinking methods header image

The different thinking methods to generate uniqueness

Some of the different thinking methods to generate uniqueness are as follows:

The logical thinking method

The vertical thinking method

The lateral thinking method

The critical thinking method

Critical thinking Socrates image

The creative thinking method

Creative thinking girl image

The radical thinking method

The radical thinking method is here meant in a good way of turning an idea on its head to come up with useful other ideas, which can lead to newness.

Each of the thinking methods comes with its own definition, rules and principles.

For creative thinking the following can be regarded as some of the rules and principles:

Generating of alternatives:

A particular method or way is only one from among many others. The natural tendency is to look for the best possible approach, but in lateral thinking one must look for as many different approaches as possible and not come to a stop at the most promising approach.

The purpose of the search is to loosen up rigid patterns and to provoke new patterns to arrive at something better than the obvious alternative.

Challenging assumptions:

Assumptions are also patterns based on certain boundaries or limits. We must challenge the validity of concepts and the necessity of boundaries in trying to restructure patterns. An example is the nine dots where one has to break through the self-imposed boundary.

The “why” technique can also be helpful here to challenge assumptions by repeatedly questioning an answer with “why.” The intention is to create discomfort and increase the possibility of restructuring the pattern.

Deferring Judgement:

In vertical thinking we exercise judgement at every stage to make certain that the information is right. With lateral thinking one allows invalid information to cause restructuring that is valid. In other words the concern is more with to where an arrangement of information can lead us.

Instead of judging each arrangement and allowing only those that are valid, one defers judgement until later.

The emphasis shifts from the validity of a particular pattern, to the usefulness of that pattern in generating new patterns.

In his book Lateral Thinking, De Bono states as follows:

“The need to be right all the time is the biggest bar there is to new ideas

“The major dangers of the need to be right all the time are as follows:

– Arrogant certainty attends a line of thought, which though correct, may have started from wrong premises.

– An incorrect idea which would have lead on to a correct idea (or useful experiment) is choked off at too early a stage if it cannot itself be justified.

– It is assumed that being right is enough – an adequate arrangement blocks the possibility of a better arrangement.

– The importance attached to being right all the time breeds the inhibiting fear of making mistakes.”

Escaping From Dominant Ideas:

One must try to get into the habit of trying to pick out the idea, which seems to one self to dominate the issue. The purpose is to see the situation clearly enough to be able to generate different points of view. It is a matter of identifying the dominant idea to avoid it or escape from it.

One must try to convert a vague awareness to a definite pattern. Otherwise it will be extremely difficult to generate alternative ways of looking at the situation. The dominant idea will keep on dominating the issue.

Isolating Crucial Factors:

A crucial factor can immobilize a situation and make it impossible to change a point of view. It is extremely difficult to loosen up a pattern unless one can identify the rigid points.

The purpose of isolating a crucial factor is to be able to challenge the validity of it. Once it is found not to be crucial, more freedom for different viewpoints will emerge.


Then one also gets different techniques to stimulate or enhance a specific thinking method, like the following examples.

Proof of our own research studies

Ultimate self-improvement header-image

Future needed competencies for the 4th industrial revolution research outcomes.

We have studied several scientific research studies undertaken and published by numerous authoritative institutions worldwide, on needed skills and competencies for the fourth industrial revolution.

Here in the image below is just a small sample of six of the many research publications we have studied:

Sample of six research publications image

In summary it comes down to the following broad competencies, as agreed upon by member countries of the World Economic Forum:

Think systems, not technologies
Empowering, not determining
By design, not by default
Values as feature, not a bug
Transformation leadership dexterity

In more detail it comes down to the following competencies, by Dr JH Oosthuizen:

This position paper further expands on the intelligence types of Schwab (2016), and Oosthuizen (2016), to create a ten-factor intelligence type framework, namely:

1. Contextual (the mind) – how we understand and apply our knowledge (Schwab, 2016).
2. Emotional (the heart) – how we process and integrate our thoughts and feelings and relate to ourselves and to one another (Schwab, 2016).
3. Inspired (the soul) – how we use a sense of individual and shared purpose, trust, and other virtues to effect change and act towards the common good (Schwab, 2016).
4. Physical (the body) – how we cultivate and maintain our personal health and well-being and that of those around us to be in a position to apply the energy required for both individual and systems transformation (Schwab, 2016).
5. Entrepreneurial (the disposition) – how we recognise opportunity through synthesis of the whole and creative combination of resources (Oosthuizen, 2016).
6. Strategic (the orientation) – how we adapt to changing environments (Wells, 2012); gather, examine and disseminate intelligence of strategic value (Djekic, 2014).
7. Transdisciplinary (the perspective) – how we understand a system in relation to its larger environment, relationships and connections, bringing the information from separate disciplines together to create useful knowledge (Montuori, 2013:47).
8. Ecosystem (the coalescence) – how we grow and develop within the setting of the system of relationships that form our environment, the impact the environmental factors have on us, and how we impact one another and our environment (Bloom & Dees, 2008:47).
9. Socratic (the philosophy) – how we analyse ideas in terms of their opposites with the objective of creating a more enlightened synthesis (Chaffee, 2013:62).
10. Ethical (the morals) – how we differentiate between what is right and what is wrong, reach decisions and make choices based on this differentiation (Rich, 2013:4).

A conceptual 4th Industrial Revolution Intelligence (4IRI) framework is subsequently proposed, namely:

1. Contextual Intelligence (CI); plus
2. Emotional Intelligence (EI); plus
3. Inspired Intelligence (II); plus
4. Physical Intelligence (PI); plus
5. Entrepreneurial Intelligence (EntI); plus
6. Strategic Intelligence (SI); plus
7. Transdisciplinary Intelligence (TI); plus
8. Ecosystem Intelligence (EcoI); plus
9. Socratic Intelligence (SocI); plus
10. Ethical Intelligence (EthI).

The image displayed below provides a schematic representation of the framework.

Ten competencies image

To stay relevant, companies are reconsidering how their talent requirements need to evolve, to meet the skills and workforce challenges created by rapid digitalization.

Attract, retain and develop talent: Be a great place to work for millennials and diverse employees. Empower and incentivize the workforce through development opportunities. Create a workforce with great digital skills AND great interpersonal skills.

Bring leadership beyond digital: Hire people with open mindsets and a willingness to change the status quo. Foster a culture from the top that is comfortable with digital technologies. Train senior leaders to “zoom in and zoom out”.

Adapt to different ways of working: Create environments where automation and artificial intelligence enhances humans. Prepare for the rise of the on-demand workforce.

The 7 technologies changing our world:

1. Computing capabilities, storage and access: Between 1985 and 1989, the Cray-2 was the world’s fastest computer. It was roughly the size of a washing machine. Today, a smart watch has twice its capabilities.

2. Big data: Each time you run a Google search, scan your passport, make an online purchase or tweet, you are leaving a data trail behind that can be analysed and monetized. Thanks to supercomputers and algorithms, we can make sense of massive amounts of data in real time. Computers are already making decisions based on this information, and in less than 10 years computer processors are expected to reach the processing power of the human brain. This means there’s a good chance your job could be done by computers in the coming decades. Two Oxford researchers, Carl Bendikt Frey and Michael A Osborne, estimated that 47% of American jobs are at high risk of automation.

3. Digital health: Analysing medical data collated from different populations and demographics enables researchers to understand patterns and connections in diseases and identify which conditions improve the effectiveness of certain treatments and which don’t. Big data will help to reduce costs and inefficiencies in healthcare systems, improve access and quality of care, and make medicine more personalized and precise. In the future, we will all have very detailed digital medical profiles … including information that we’d rather keep private.

4. The digitization of matter: 3D printers will create not only cars, houses and other objects, but also human tissue, bones and custom prosthetics. Patients would not have to die waiting for organ donations if hospitals could bioprint them. In fact, we may have already reached this stage: in 2014, doctors in China gave a boy a 3D-printed spine implant, according to the journal Popular Science.

5. The internet of things: Within the next decade, it is expected that more than a trillion sensors will be connected to the internet. If almost everything is connected, it will transform how we do business and help us manage resources more efficiently and sustainably. Connected sensors will be able to share information from their environment and organize themselves to make our lives easier and safer. For example, self-driving vehicles could “communicate” with one another, preventing accidents. By 2020 around 22% of the world’s cars will be connected to the internet (290 million vehicles), and by 2024, more than half of home internet traffic will be used by appliances and devices. Home automation is also happening fast. We can control our lights, heating, air conditioning and security systems remotely, but how much longer will it be before sensors are able to detect crumbs under the table and tell our automated vacuum cleaners to tidy up?

6. Blockchain: Only a tiny fraction of the world’s GDP (around 0.025%) is currently held on blockchain, the shared database technology where transactions in digital currencies such as the Bitcoin are made. But this could be about to change, as banks, insurers and companies race to work out how they can use the technology to cut costs. A blockchain is essentially a network of computers that must all approve a transaction before it can be verified and recorded. Using cryptography to keep transactions secure, the technology provides a decentralized digital ledger that anyone on the network can see.

7. Wearable internet: Technology is getting increasingly personal. Computers are moving from our desks, to our laps, to our pockets and soon they will be integrated into our clothing. By 2025, 10% of people are expected to be wearing clothes connected to the internet and the first implantable mobile phone is expected to be sold.

Top 10 skills demands for 2022, by World Economic Forum, published 2018:

1. Complex Problem Solving Skills (including creative problem solving and learning from critical disagreements)
2. Critical Thinking and Self-Awareness (including ability to understand and control/correct emotional reflexes and instinctive biases)
3. Creativity (including the confidence and courage skills necessary to challenge the status quo and to tolerate the ambiguities/uncertainties of the creation process)
4. People Skills (including fact-based and consequence-focused feedback exchange, driving engagement, awareness and respect of diversities, cultivating high ethical standards and coherence)
5. Coordinating with Others (including personal influence skills, purpose-based intentional and rotational leadership, ability to hold clear mutual accountability in a collaborative, often virtual, context)
6. Emotional Intelligence (including self-awareness, active listening, effective two-way open communication, empathy, authenticity and courage of transparency)
7. Judgment and Decision Making (including proactive initiative, system analysis and learning on the fly)
8. Service orientation (including humble self confidence and open dialogue)
9. Negotiation (including positive orientation, mastering of both push and pull communication skills and multicultural/multi-functional fluency)
10. Cognitive Flexibility during Critical Situations (keep in calm, open to learn and generally resilient in front of uncertainties, ambiguities, disagreements and major change)

According to the World Economic Forum, the above skills translates to the following skills descriptions, which will grow in importance for 2022 (precisely what we are trying to dish out on a platter!):

  1. Analytical thinking and innovation
  2. Active learning and learning strategies
  3. Creativity, originality and initiative
  4. Technology design and programming
  5. Critical thinking and analysis
  6. Complex problem-solving
  7. Leadership and social influence
  8. Emotional intelligence
  9. Reasoning, problem-solving and idea creation
  10. Systems analysis and evaluation

It looks like the above two top ten skills can still be reconciled and combined, maybe into a top 12 skills.

Change your life into success by changing your mind

Yes, you can unleash the “Success Mindset” and create the life you have always dreamed of having, no matter what it is, right now!

Change a fixed mindset to a growth mindset for success.

When did you begin to choose the life you are leading now? When did you decide on the job you have, and against the job you want? When did you decide that the money you make now is all you can make? Did you decide?

1. Change your life into success by changing your mind

This book is about your future and the decisions you are making today, which will create that future.

Change your life to success by changing your mind ebook ecover

Determination and belief are the starting points for success. They open you to new opportunities to do and be anything you desire, and you only need a subconscious thought to plant the seed. How do we do this?

This book is based on real answers to that question.

Change your life into success by changing your mind, will walk you through the steps to real answers and teach you to start asking the right questions. By learning how the mind works, we understand how to break the cycles that keep us on the outside looking in, instead of where we truly wish to be.

The understanding found in this book will open your mind and your eyes to a world which has always been there; you just didn’t know the questions to expose it to you.

How often have we found ourselves looking across the road to discover something lacking in our own lives? By changing our minds we remove the lack in our own lives. We remove the unnamed need that eats away at our day to day lives. By changing our minds we walk away from a life that is constantly needing repairs and begin a life that rewrites our reality.

Whether we know it or not, our energies are focused and those energies are working in our lives, for better or worse. Like electricity, our own energies do not decide they will work in one area, and not another. Electricity doesn’t stop working because the toaster is bad or the stereo is on a negative channel. Electricity flows through the circuit until it is complete. Our energies act in exactly the same way. Change your life into success by changing your mind expands this simple life truth, and shows you how to change your circuit path so the things you want in your life receive the energy, rather than sending it to the things that are strapping you down.

Read Change your life into success by changing your mind today, and start putting focus and energy into your own success.

Distance education by online home learning

Education for the future header

Distance education by online home learning

1. Distance education programs:

Distance education can be defined as an education program imparted by an educational institution, beyond the barriers of its campus and taken by a student outside the walls of an educational institution. Distance education is a medium that connects students to the educational institutions of the world.

Distance education programs are becoming the most popular and viable way of teaching and education. More and more people are registering for distance education programs of different educational institutions. Distance education programs give freedom to a student to learn at his own pace, his own schedule and at his own convenience.

Distance education is imparted through the electronic media and study materials supplied by the educational institution for a particular course. It helps people to upgrade their educational qualification, even when they are tied up in their working schedule. Some businesses also use distance education to train their employees, as it is less time consuming, less expensive and adds to the human resources enrichment of the business.

To enrol for a distance education course, one must be sure as to what kind of specialization one is looking for. An extensive study must then be done to find out in details about the educational institutions that offer the course wanted. The time duration of the course, the fees, software needed and the time of exam must also be checked. The most important factor that should be checked is whether the school or educational institution is accredited or not. One should not register at an educational institution, which is not accredited.

Every coin has two sides and distance education programs are no exception to the rule. While a distance education program is advantageous, as it helps people to continue with their education. Despite of the demanding schedule it also has some disadvantages. It may fail to motivate a student to study, resulting in no good for the candidate. This shows registering yourself is not sufficient, you must also have the drive in yourself to continue with the study. The success of distance education also depends on the success of the technology. Without a good support system and infrastructure the distance education may be a failure.

Thus we can say that distance education is a boon for today’s busy and demanding world, but it also demands a significant level of maturity from its students.

2. The benefits of online home learning:

While there are all kinds of benefits that are associated with learning and furthering your educational goals there are even more benefits to those who wish to pursue online home learning in order to achieve those goals. I hope you will find that many of these benefits are quite enlightening and carefully consider whether or not online home learning for your secondary education needs will be in your best interests.

2.1 Convenience.

This is a word we are quite familiar with. Right along with instant gratification. We are a society of people who have lived with drive-thru banking and fast food and are rapidly moving in the direction of drive-thru pharmacies and dry cleaning. We live in a fast paced world and when we can work education into our busy schedules and on our own terms, we find that this is something we tend to like a lot. There is a growing number of online classes and students, as more and more professionals decide to further their degrees and their careers with this method of education, which is more convenient for many.

2.2 Flexibility.

You can take these classes or do the work during your lunch break, while the kids are practicing soccer, or while cooking dinner (depending of course on how well you multi-task). You do not need to be in the classroom every night at 6:00 pm for the next five years in order to get the same degree of education. This by no means indicates that you will not have to do the work. The work will not change nor will the fact that you have a limited time in which to complete the work. What will change is that you will have the option of doing the work in the morning, afternoon, or after those 2 a.m. feedings when you can’t seem to get back to sleep.

2.3 Location.

There isn’t enough that can really be said about this. Online education comes to you wherever you happen to be able to connect to the Internet. Whether you are at home, at work, or your favourite Internet café you can have the convenience of taking your work with you and enjoying the environment in which you are completing your work.

2.4 Less Expensive.

No more convenience meals, childcare expenses, or gas guzzling trips to a college campus that thirty minutes away. You can now enjoy in your own home the benefits of an education without many of the financial hardships that are often associated with attending college. Internet access seems like such a small price to pay when compared with all the reasons mentioned above.

2.5 Improve online abilities.

Believe it or not, online courses help you brush up your online abilities. Seriously. You will be better at dealing with email, bulletin boards, online research, and you will learn countless other skills along the way that you probably never realized had anything to do with the courses you are actually taking-because they don’t. In other words, you are getting more of an education than you bargained for when it comes to online home learning.

2.6 Individual attention.

Online students often have more one-on-one interaction with their professors than students in a classroom. The online classroom is virtual and correspondence through email is essential in this particular learning environment. For this reason it is quite possible that your professors will know more about you and your learning patterns and needs than they will know about most of the students they see two or three times a week in their classrooms.

2.7 Self-improvement and self-development.

Any type of online home learning or home learning by any other means, is equivalent to self-improvement and self-development. Quote: “Formal education will make one a living. Self-education will make one a fortune.” – Jim Rohn

2.8 Self-improvement in team leadership skills. 

Development of team leadership skills is one of the the most neglected development areas in most organisations worldwide.

When there is an economic growth period or an organisation expansion period, it becomes easier to fulfil the needs of the new generation (referred to as millennials) for development and promotion.

However, it is not so easy for organisations or employers to fulfil the needs of the new generation, especially if economic conditions or organisation financial conditions are in a state of stagnation, slow growth or a downward spiral.

If a person of the new generation has ambitions to be vertically promoted inside an existing organisation, the only way to achieve those ambitions is through improvement of qualifications.

If a person is already highly qualified in a vocational technical direction, the only other options may be self-improvement in management principles or team leadership principles and skills, either through internal training opportunities or external training courses.

For development and promotion to happen for a person, there are the extra conditions of available opportunities (job openings) and recognition (proven competencies to the employer), which must also be present.

If the opportunity, together with the necessary recognition from an existing employer, takes too long, the only remaining alternatives are to fulfil those ambitions through one of the following:

2.8.1 horizontal promotion into other external organisations;

2.8.2 a change in career paths; or

2.8.3 starting a business as owner or shareholder.

However, self-improvement in team leadership skills will dramatically increase the chances of vertical (existing employer) and horizontal (external employers) job promotion, as well as business owner success, in any economic cycle, as competitors with these skills are relatively few.

Summary:

While these are just a few of the benefits of online home learning, you should carefully weigh up the benefits against the things that may be problematic about this particular type of learning situation, before you take the plunge.

Learning is a lifelong process but if you are seeking a degree you do not want to jeopardize that by taking a course that will not address your specific learning needs. If you feel confident that you can be successful in this particular type of learning environment, then I feel you will truly enjoy the experience and the flexibility it brings to the educational process.

We can show you the water, but only you can drink it, if you have enough guts. Everyone must steer his/her own boat to selected destinies of own choice. Some start too late, some never even start.
