Smile: Real or fake, broad or spontaneous. It says a lot. A smile is a gesture of body language.

Smile is a subcategory of facial expressions in non-verbal communication. A warm, authentic and radiant smile is always welcoming for a likeability and presentable personality.

Smiling while greeting people makes a positive impact. Not only did a warm smile can be seen and felt but also can be heard when anyone is smiling over the phone.

Smile is an intentional Effort - Sometimes it is really difficult to smile depending on situations. We have to make it habit and train ourself to smile very often to make it a part of positive attitude and good communication skills and make our first impression powerful.

Smile is one of the simplest means of connecting with others. An individual who smiles while communicating with others be perceived as confident, honest, and trustful.

As it is truly said " Smile Is Contagious And It Doesn't Cost Anything" a genuine smile is one of the most influential, powerful, and persuasive parts of all body language.

Smiles passes a positive and happy energy.

But, on another hand, there can be a masking smile to hide negative emotions or micro expressions.

What is Soft Skills?

Simply we would like to draw kind attention of almost 90% people in this country who have misunderstood this word “Soft Skills” and they think that this is completely a “Strange” word for them and some of them think that it has been imported from “Abroad”.

This is for your kind information that it is simply “Modification of Behavior” or in simple word “Behavior KO Sudharo” (i.e. Correct your behavior). Long ago, in the epic, MAHABHARTA, the Guru Dronacharya used to tell his disciple always “If you are strong by your behavior and character” only then you are a perfect “MAN” or Gentleman.

To add, as HRM, HRD, ADMINISTRATION and IR come under “PERSONNEL DEPARTMENT” likewise Soft Skills, People Skills, Social Skills, Family Skills, and Life Skills etc. Comes under “PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT” i.e. complete GROWTH and IMPROVEMENT in our DYNAMIC LIVING (Home Life, Business Life, Social Life, Physical Life, Mental Life, Spiritual Life).

Simply to say Soft Skills or any skills is a PART of your Personality Development. And now days this is considered as Sociological, Psychological and Anthropological process in totality.

We need to inculcate 60 Soft Skills in us but we strongly recommend even if you have the mastery in “5” Soft Skills which is just like “FIVE ELEMENTS OF A BODY

(For example: Air, Water, Fire, Sky, and Earth etc.).

These five Soft Skills are:

  1. Organizational Skills (Decision Making, Problem Solving and Managerial Skills)
  1. Presentation Skills
  1. Interpersonal Skills
  1. Communication Skills
  1. Leadership Skills

Simply to say ALL other skills available or written anywhere comes under only these five. In other words, other skills are PART of these five skills in totality.

In fine, We would like to extend our message to everyone WHOMSOEVER would like to go for “SOFT SKILLS” is that “SKILLS” are not a GOD gift, this can be ACQUIRED any point of time in your life.

Who are Real Winners?

What I mean to say simply is that ‘Winners’ are common people like us but the thing which makes them different are –‘They Do Things Differently’. I would like to quote one very fantastic wording for ‘Winners’ like: “To be born gentleman, is an accident, but to die gentleman, is an achievement.” The concept of the people all over the world is totally unique about winners. They assume winners are those who are having amassed wealth, high status & position, dashing life style etc. What I personally believe that ‘Real’ winners are those who work for ‘Others’ even though you may not be having those amenities with you. What is the basic behind is that if you are living only for you then there is no difference between an animal and you because an animal is looking for its only livelihood.

The few common examples of winners are:

  1. If you are getting late for your office and desperately waiting for bus which is already late and in the mean time you saw an accident took place and that particular fellow is screaming for help; what you will do now. If you take him to the hospital without caring your office, you are Real winner.
  2. If you are a soldier and presently you are in your village to look after your wife who is suffering from ‘cancer’ and in the mean time you got the call from your office; what you will do now? If you back to the front, you are real winner.
  3. If you know very well that the exact fare from your home to the city bus stand are Rs.50 but taxi driver is asking you only Rs.30; what you will do now. If you pay him the exact fare of Rs.50, you are real winner.

In fine, Winners are those who feel complete satisfaction after doing certain work whether it is awarded or rewarded, simply they do not bother. The work which gives you Happiness, Smile, Pleasure, Satisfaction, energy etc., it means you are on the right track. The message is – be honest; follow ethics and value for others.

Dear Candidates,

Proper grooming and professional appearance are important to gain not just positive impression but also respect in the workplace. Here I address some of the most common grooming challenges faced in today’s workplace.

·      Be cautious with bright colors. Clothes that are too flashy can be distracting. Darker colors usually convey a stronger impression than lighter ones. If you're giving a presentation, make sure the color you're wearing doesn't blend in with the background behind you. Whether you’re wearing traditional business dress or business casual, wrinkled, dirty, or smelly clothing is a sure image-killer.

·      Facial hair needs to be kept trim and tidy to maintain a professional look. Any hair that's under your lower lip that isn't a beard is not a good idea, No matter how much you want to grow a full beard, it just might not look right on you, just like a haircut - not every cut is going to look good on every person,

·      Three accessories that get noticed most on both men and women, are the Shoes, watch and the pen. Make sure your shoes are polished and in good condition. Carry a decent looking pen. Preferably a fountain pen with non smudge ink. Avoid pens with transparent and cheap plastic bodies. Watches for both men and women should be the highest quality one can afford. Thin styles are preferred over heavier styles, sport watches, or novelty watches. No matter what watch you wear, you’re making a statement about who you are and what’s important to you.

·      Accessories are meant to complement your outfit, not overpower it. Keep it to the minimal and avoid very large pieces. Ladies must make sure that their jewelry shouldn't make noise. Multiple rings, bracelets, and necklaces can get in the way of your work and project an image of being extreme. Tie pins with shining rhine stones are not for work.  keep neckties secure by tucking the narrow end through the label on the underside of the wide end.  Plain metallic Cuff links are always in style. women with multiple ear piercings should limit earrings to one per ear and men should remove all earrings. If one has tattoos or non-ear piercings, keep them out of sight while at work.

·      Avoid Fingernails that are too long or are unkempt. Never be seen with chipped nail polish . If you're going to show your toes, make sure your hands and  toes are well-groomed

·      Avoid bathing yourself in strong perfumes. A perfume that one may find delightful can be downright offensive to someone else. And for those who like to remove his or her shoes during the workday, foot odor can be quite offensive to fellow workers. Be conscious. If you must wear fragrance, do so lightly. Consider a scented skin lotion instead of perfume or cologne.

·      Overdone makeup is unattractive at any age. Makeup application is an art and, unfortunately, most women fall victim to products and styles not suitable for their coloring, age. Choose your makeup carefully and keep it light.

·      There’s little worse than having a conversation with someone who has foul-smelling breath. Keep a toothbrush and toothpaste in your desk in order to brush after eating. Use mouth fresheners if you smoke.

From bad breath to plunging necklines, slurping soup to presentation paralysis, a lot can go wrong at work. I will handle these issues in the coming articles.

Have a great day ahead!!

Importance of Personality Development for professionals of all walks of life ! 

Investments Opportunities are many, it could be real estate, paper assets, precious stones, metals. However, the first investment to be considered in today's competitive world, where in the opportunities are in abundance is investing on self, yes, I mean investing on Self Development.

Results depend on the behavior, the behaviors depend on the mindset and the mindset depends on the up brining, most of the times.The Behaviors, Thoughts and Feelings (BTFs) what we have as human beings, could be copied from parents or parent like figures in our lives, BTFs could be even replayed from our childhood or for that matter they could be direct responses to here and now, present circumstances.
Successful people are the ones, who ponder on their BTFs and work on them to get better in life. Thus, reinforcing the importance of Personality Development. Personality Development is relatively enduring pattern of ones Behaviors, Thoughts & Feelings, and that distinguish people from one another. The dominant view in the field of personality psychology today holds that personality emerges early and continues to change in meaningful ways throughout the lifespan, naturally. However, one can accelerate by intentionally working on Developing the Personality.
As a Performance Coach and a trainer, I had been working with 1000s of clients and students and can say with conviction that, Personal Development Is Critical to Success for every single ambitious human being.
Change is inevitable, then why not change for good, as very well said, by my guru, Jim Rohn, "Unless you change how you are, you'll always have what you've got". It's observed that people change for one of two reasons: Inspiration or Desperation. Successful People, take Action proactively and change for inspiration, take responsibility for self-improvement and thrive for bigger, better lives.

Earl Shroff, said 'If you want to be wealthy and happy, learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job'. 

For past decade, I had been working hard on my own personal growth, and I want to say with pride that this was the best decision I had ever taken in my life and from then on there is no looking back. it is not only helping me get better, however is also helping me provide world-class service to my clients, students and participants of my trainings.
To conclude let me say this, "What you become is far more important than what you get". Most of what you have today you have attracted by becoming the person you are right now and unless you change how you are, you'll always have what you've got. Now, I love what I do and I do what I love.

9 Ways To Make Great Decisions

9 Ways To Make Great Decisions:

Those of you working in HR play a pivotal role in the company. You are decision makers; you are the ones who implement the decisions of the organization. The first thing that you should remember is that you are not just working in HR, but that you are part of the cornerstone upon which your company lies.



Because you play such an important, decision-making role, I researched an article just for you on how to make Great Decisions. Here it is:



Perfect decisions are few and far between because life is messy. A great decision is always possible, however. Great decisions don't all have fairytale endings, but they do achieve the best possible outcome under the circumstances.



The most successful decision-makers don't act on impulse, intuition, or even experience alone; they have a system that they work through step by step. Here is one such system:



1. Define the issue. A problem well stated is a problem half solved. Employ the "who, what, when, why, and how" regimen of the journalist, although not necessarily in that order. Why is the decision necessary? What is the objective? How can a great decision change things for the better? Whom will it affect? When does it need to be made?


2. Take a positive approach. Make a conscious effort to see the situation as an opportunity rather than a problem.


3. List your options. The more alternatives you consider, the more likely you will be to not overlook the best solution.


4. Gather information about your options. You will not only make better decisions if you have investigated thoroughly, but you will also have more peace of mind as you carry out your decision.


5. Be objective. If you already have an opinion on the matter, the natural tendency will be to look primarily for evidence to confirm that opinion. That works if you happen to be right, but if you're not. Welcome alternatives and opposing views. Remind yourself that the goal is not to prove yourself right, but to make the right decision.


6. Consider your options. Write down the pros and cons for each option and see how they stack up against each other. Try to determine both best-case and worst-case scenarios for each option. See if there is some way to combine several promising solutions into one potent solution.


7. Be true to yourself. Do any of the alternatives compromise your values? If so, scratch them from the list.


8. Make a decision. When you're convinced that you've found the best alternative, commit to it.


9. Be open to change if circumstances change. Once you make a decision and begin to act on it, a better option may open up. This is sometimes referred to as the "boat-and-rudder effect." It's not until a boat is in motion that the rudder can come into play, but when it does, it makes greater maneuverability possible.

Dear Trainee,

 

Here is a few tip for you, to remember and practice while attending a business meeting with your higher ups or with a client. 

1. watch for your body odor , use a mild body spray if you have the tendency to sweat before attending the meeting. This will keep you fresh and improves your confidence level too.

2. Never shake hands if your palm is wet or partially wet, ensure to use a tissue paper or hand drier (if available ) to keep your hands dry. 

3. Your handshake reveals your self-confidence, so  be watchful of it and let your shake be firm but very firm (do not squeeze the person's hand). If it is an opposite gender, let your handshake be gentle.

Manners Matters ! :)

Wait for more tips...

Best Regards

Sukanya
