You may be a lead or a manager running around between too many things. You have limited time but lots to do. You are confused , which one to prioritise? which one to say 'No'? Sometimes, you end up doing route tasks and unable to complete the tasks which require your special attention.

Do you want to know the secret mantra to balance your workload?

Here it is!!!

DELEGATION.

You can delegate your task to your subordinate whenever and wherever possible. This, enables you to focus better on important tasks which requires your special attention.

Example you have an excel report to be completed. You can delegate to your subordinate who is good at MS-excel and you can focus on the strategies required to enhance or improve your process or project.  

The next question is whom to delegate?  Will the subordinate be open or reluctant towards the task delegated to him/her?

Have you heard of Maslow Theory? 

Abraham Maslow stated that there is a hierarchy of five needs within each individual.  

Your subordinate who falls in the bracket of 'Esteem need' is driven by his need for the feeling of achievement, wants to gain recognition, become competent. He would be the right person to delegate your task, who is ready to take up challenges and additional responsibilities.

Every now and then the same question crops up, “What is this soft skills? And why has it become so important that every course now has soft skills as a subject?” Well, I answered this question almost a year ago. Here it goes, once again:

‘What the heck is ‘Soft Skill?’ (Kids, if you are reading this article, ‘heck’ is a swear word [a bad word], so don’t pick it up and keep it out of conversation.

People are classified into five categories according to the way they work. Here are their Sanskrit names:

Vyastah: ‘Busy People’, nearly perpetually! You’ll see them running around (mostly hyper) trying (mark the ‘trying’) to get things done and yet never getting anything done. There is always an excuse. They terrorise their juniors and drive their seniors crazy.

Sustah: They can sleep on parapet, on the chair. Sleeping while standing is not a problem too (and this is not in the Mumbai local train, but in their work place). The pace of their work would put giant sloth to shame. And there’s always an excuse for not doing a work or not completing the work.

Trastah: Oh God! They are always sad. They thrive (prosper) on depression, anything and everything can depress them. Smiling for them is like paying tax. You’ll mostly see them with a grumpy look, wallowing in self - pity, somewhere in a corner.

Vastah: Ah! The perennial (permanent) complainers, they love to connive (scheme), malign and complain. There is always a ‘but’ in every good thing. The food is good, but the ambience is bad. The girl/ boy is pretty but short.  The weather is pleasant, but there’s so much dust.

Mastah: Everything is joy for them, give them work, they are happy; give them more work, they are still happy. Thorough professionals, they are always full of beans (happy and energetic). Dignity, control on their emotions, perfectionism, quickness to accept mistakes, readiness to change and willingness to learn are all a part of their personality. They’ll always find a solution to every problem and without making too much about it.

You’ll find each type among yourselves. Soft Skills is a discipline that believes that behind every Vyastah, Sustah, Trastah and Vastah is hidden a Mastah, who can be brought out by patience and proper coaching. ‘Soft Skills’ is a discipline that helps a person to achieve this ‘Mastah’ state. Of course, some people are born ‘Mastahs’, while some others have to learn to become one, and Soft Skills which include communication and behavioural skills give a learner that required guidance.

That explains it all.

Dr Steven Covey, who popularised the term, believes that it means “increasing your personal production capacity by daily self-care and self-maintenance”.

Most people fail to understand what it means and mistake it for taking a break or vacation. If you’re overworking yourself and your productivity drops, take a break. However, that isn’t sharpening the axe – that’s putting the axe down.

Sharpening the axe is an activity. You too can sharpen the axe of your life. Here are examples of axe-sharpening activities:

1. Read a book every day.

2. Get out of your comfort zone by changing jobs. A new job forces you to learn.

3. Have a deep conversation with someone you find interesting. Sharpen your axe through that interaction.

4. Pick up a new hobby. Stretch yourself physically, mentally or emotionally.

5. Study something new.

6. Overcome a specific fear you have or quit a bad habit.

7. Have a daily exercise routine or take part in some competition.

8. Identify your blind spots. Understand, acknowledge, and address them.

9. Ask for feedback and get a mentor.

10. Learn from people who inspire you.

How are your various blades doing? Your skills, knowledge, mind, physical body, relationships, motivation, commitment to succeed, capacity for growth, emotions – are all of them still sharp? If not, which ones are dull, and what can you do to sharpen them?

Lincoln once said “give me six hours to chop down a tree and I’ll spend the first four sharpening my axe”. What are you doing to sharpen your axe? Take a step back this weekend and start sharpening your axe.

Perception is a process by which individuals organise and interpret their sensory impressions in order to give meaning to their environments. Perception is a complicated interaction of selection, organisation and interpretation.

Perception of an individual is influenced by a number of factors – internal and external. Among the internal factors, the important are the needs and desires of individuals, attitudes, past experience and expectations. Among the external factors, the most important are size, intensity, frequency, status etc.

Few of the barriers to perceptual accuracy are:

1. Stereotyping

2. Halo Effect

3. Selective Perception

4. Attribution

5. Distortion

6. Projection

Below measures can be adopted to enhance perceptual accuracy:

1. Knowing one-self more accurately.

2. Assessing and knowing others more exactly.

3. Being empathetic.

4. Having positive attitudes

5. Enhancing one’s self concept.

6. Taking a conscious effort to reduce perceptual barriers.

7. Frank, open and 2 way communication with employees.

8. Avoid attributions and distortions.

9. Get complete information from different sources regarding an object/person/event and organise, interpret and perceive from the data. 

More on this can be learnt by attending workshops or courses on Perception and its effect on Personal Efectiveness.

First Impression, Lasting Impression.

Manjiri J.

I am the founder and proprietor of my coaching firm in Bangalore, known Reivent Coaching and Consulting....

This is the story of a ten-year girl on a lazy summer afternoon.

This is the story of a ten-year girl on a lazy summer afternoon. Since her mother had refused to give in to her demand she was sulking, looking out of the window, hoping someone came along and cajoled her.  The doorbell rang and she heard voices in the drawing room. “Hmm, guests”, she thought.

Very soon the mother called out and asked her to join them. She plopped on the sofa opposite to where the guests sat, with her head down, answering them in monosyllables and occasionally glaring at her mother. After they left, the mum asked the reason for her behaviour, and the girl said: “What did I do?” Her mother replied, “People come to meet and spend some time with us, do you think your behaviour was right?” The girl whined,   ” I did not say anything, and replied to their questions also, I am upset and I don’t care “. Her mother said, “No one has the time to think as to why you are upset or understand that maybe you are not having a good day. What they take back with them is what they see. Can you imagine what they must be thinking about you? And our family?”

The young girl was me, and this was my primary understanding of the first impression as far as I remember.  I am sure each one of you has heard this in some context or the other while growing up – Create a good impression! No one explained the real why to me, and it was always taught as a part of being a good girl and I am grateful for that.

When I got into consulting and training, as a feature of my study, I read about the research done on the occurrence of the first impression. At that point, I understood that people do make snap judgments based on the first look within 3-5 seconds and a few minutes of interaction.  Now based on that perception, we either get liked or a distant treatment. In fact, our first email or a telephone conversation too works in a similar way. I believe it’s a survival instinct in us and we do it unconsciously.

So being mindful of it and being considerate, and mannerly, seems to make a lot of sense. Also being kind and considerate from a human point of view equally makes good sense to me.In fact, rather than speaking generally, let me narrow it down to work.

 Managing Impression at Work:

We all know in business making the right impression has its advantages, and a good first impression helps us create opportunities to take the relationship further as we have stepped into the “yes room” of the other persons’ mind. Great! Now, what happens after the first impressionable interaction is over?  Most times it will lead to a series of engagements.

How do we manage our demeanour then? How do we live up to those expectations? Because now there are discussions, requests, negotiations, maybe a difference of opinion or distinctive outcomes that two people want from that interaction and operating from a principle of making a good impression may become a quest!

Also, is first impression only an external doing? I don’t think so. We may disguise our real emotions with perfect clothes and the best greetings, but what about the silent language of the physiology? I have had introductions to people where their impeccable dressing and the right choice of words have not matched the quiver in the voice, distant look in their eyes or the aloof smile. And I must acknowledge, I have been there quite a few times myself.

It is only human to want to be liked by people, but it is hardly in our control.

So instead of looking at first impressions as a curtain raiser, how about creating instants that last even after you have left the room? What if we can shift our focus to a place which is more inspiring rather than attempting to be liked?  Just like a sea anchor helps the ship from drifting away, what if you allowed your true self to guide you and choose the behaviour that seems to fit you? Because, when the internal blends with the external, is when you create a memorable impact.

And how do we do that? We do that each day! building and strengthening the power within us that keeps us grounded while we show up in different situations.

The best way to make a good first impression last is to be the person you wish to be.

Why are we so bad at confronting people?

This could be because

  • You do not wish to hurt others feelings. - One fact that you must remind yourself is that other people’s feelings are not in your control and never will be.
  • You worry too much about consequences - As long as you’ve got your facts right and look for a win-win situation , keeping the long term relationship in mind, there’s no need to worry too much.
  • You do not know when to start - “If you wait until you’re ready, you’ll be waiting for the rest of your lives”. So it is best to address the issue at the earliest instead of allowing your feelings to boil and blow up one day.
  • You do not know how to start - Start by getting a clarity about three questions. What happened ?, What did you feel ?, What do you wish to change? For example: When you keep cutting me off in front of other people during meetings, I feel bad. I’d feel more respected if you allowed me to complete what I had to say. This example covers all the three questions mentioned above.

Your self consciousness could be the result of your thoughts.

Thinking →Feeling→Action(Behavior)

One quick and easy way to change this would be focus your efforts on changing the action(Body language for instance) instead of attempting to work on your thoughts.

Your thoughts with respect to self consciousness ( what others may think of me etc) are the results of previous experiences and beliefs that you have accumulated over a long period of time.

Rather than trying to change all of that, which can be a long drawn out process, work on your posture,gestures,eye contact and tone of voice. Try power posing to enhance your confidence levels and bring down your stress/anxiety levels.

This is called the As-if principle. According to the As-if principle,behavior causes emotion. Your body has the power to change your brain. Use it !
