professional growth you may avoid the following behaviours or use the
checklist for self-assessment of behaviours to modify.
Talk much without listening.
If you talk
without listening to others they will not desire to interact with you.
Whereas when you listen to others, you can understand their needs, which in
turn will motivate employees, knowing that you care.
as a micro-manager leaves no space for his employees, the ‘laissez-faire’
manager goes to the other extreme of hardly making connection with this
employees. This can cause an atmosphere of chaos and poor performance due to
lack of motivation or stimulation of challenge.
Lack of coherence.
coherent means doing all that you say and carrying out your obligations.
Having meetings with your staff to check their progress. If you do not
operate in this manner you will create a sense of frustration and damage
your professional trustworthiness as a manager.
Pay attention to methods rather than results.
When you focus only on the method of work you suffocate the creativity of
your employees because there are many different ways to execute a job. Pay
attention to the result and have them reach the goals. This way they also
get an opportunity test their own performance.
Manage all employees equally.
Right approach? Wrong. By treating all your staff similarly you fail to
understand employees’ individual needs. You will not be able to distinguish
the kind of support necessary for a talented employee vice an average one.
Are not able to be a friend to your employees.
If you are uneasy talking to your people beyond work activities, you will
create a distance and will not motivate your work group. If you know your
employees as individuals and share personal news and views with them, you
will create good work relationship with them.
Dealing in tasks rather than objectives.
concentrate only on daily jobs without considering future objectives, you
will not plan progress for yourself or your staff.
Do not succeed in achieving objectives.
Lot of us may
talk about objectives without undertaking action to reach them. Some of us
avoid decisions and only take them when in trouble. We may call staff to
help but fail to recognize their help. These behaviours diminish a manager’s
credibility. Demonstrate a positive and direct behaviour without hesitating
to take necessary action, and giving recognition when due.
Managers that want to do all things.
Some managers want to take part in every project and staff activity, with
the result staff will be unable to undertake new activities or start a
project. This dependence will discourage ambition in them and leave them
unable to take important responsibilities to increase your company’s
A good manager is oriented
towards his and individuals’ professional and personal growth.
A good perfume
lasts all day and anyone who comes close to you will smell the scent of your
choice. Here is a little more you may like to know on the subject.
Perfume can damage jewellery. The synthetic ingredients and chemicals it
contains can damage pearls, gems and silver. Avoid the damage by waiting ten
minutes to let your perfume dry before you put on jewellery.
If you find your fragrance fades quite fast, but you don't want to apply more
for risk of an overload, try using body oil. This will make the fragrance last
much longer. You can get body oils which spray on in a light mist, and then
spray on the perfume.
Some rose scents remind you of old people, while some smell fresh and gorgeous.
Perfumes with a mix of iris or amber base tend to smell quite old, but rose
scents with a rose base or a woody base keep freshness, so look for them.
Mix and match.
Can perfumes be mixed? Fruity smells seem to combine quite well but both scents
need to be quite light, as overpowered scents will clash.
Once you have used a perfume for a while, your nose becomes desensitised to it :
you will not smell so well, but everyone else can. Try new scents every once in
a while, and enjoy a refreshing change of smell.
Does deodorant become less effective?
In the summer there are days when you sweat, and you wonder if your deodorant
will fail. It will not. It will always be effective, so find the deo that works
for you and stick to it.
A woman was
sitting at a bar enjoying an after work cocktail with her girlfriends
when Steven, a tall, exceptionally handsome, extremely sexy, middle-aged man
entered. He was so striking that the woman could not take her eyes off him.
This seasoned yet playful heartthrob noticed her overly attentive stare and
walked directly toward her. Before she could offer her apologies for staring
so rudely, he leaned over and whispered to her, "I'll do anything,
absolutely anything, that you want me to do, no matter how kinky, for
$20.00... on one condition..."
Flabbergasted but intrigued, the woman asked what the condition was. The man
replied, "You have to tell me what you want me to do in just three words."
The woman considered his proposition for a moment, and then slowly took out
$20 bill from her purse, which she pressed into the man's hand along with
her address. She looked deeply and passionately into his eyes, barely
concealing her anticipation and excitement, and slowly and meaningfully
