….In my previous article we had a brief look into employee relation

It is important that employee should share a healthy relation with each other at the work place, let us find out why employee relation is important in an organization:

  • There are several issues on which an individual cannot take decision alone. He may need the guidance and advice of other as well, sometimes we might miss out on important points, but our fellow workers may come out with brilliant ideas which would help us to achieve our target at a much faster way.
  • Work becomes easy if we share among all equally. A healthy relation with a fellow worker would ease the workload on you and in turn increase your productivity. One cannot do everything on his own, responsibilities must be divided among team members to accomplish the assigned tasks within the stipulated timeframe. If you have a good rapport with you collogues, he will always be eager to assist you in your assignments, making your work easier.
  • The organization becomes a happy place to work if the employees work together as a family. An individual tends to lose focus and concentration if his mind is always clouded with unnecessary tension and stress. It has been observed that if people talk and discuss things with each other, tension automatically evaporates and one feels better.
  • An individual feels motivated in the company of others, who he can trust and fall back on whenever needed.
  • Healthy employee relation also discourages conflicts and fights among individuals, people tend to adjust more and stop finding faults in each other. They start treating each other as friends and trust their level best to compromise and in turn make everyone happy.
  • A healthy employee relation reduces the problem of absenteeism at the work place. Individuals become more serious towards their work and feel loyal towards the organization.
  • It is wise to share a work relation with your fellow worker because you never know when you need them.

It is essential that employees are comfortable with each other for better focus and concentration and increased production.

Further to the article titled “EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE”, let us continue where we left off. In this article let’s look into few tips to enhance EQ.

SELF AWARENESS:

It is all about recognising and understanding how your own emotions affect your interactions with others and impact on others emotional state.

EMPATHY:

Start observing others emotions, respond to others in a way that you would want someone to respond to you. Try to put yourself in others shoes and understand their perspective. Being empathetic will help you handle the situations well.

COMMUNICATION:

It plays an important role in developing and maintaining good relationships. Developing quality relationships has a very positive effect on all. The ability to express personal concerns without anger or passivity is a key asset.

DEALING WITH EXAM STRESS:

Stress is not always bad. It is just emotional strain and body’s response to demanding circumstances.

The stress felt during exams is a natural reaction for your mind to get in the “ preparation and performance mode”. It turns into anxiety when you add the pressure of expectations to it, leading to fear of failure.

Students should believe in themselves and focus on preparing for the exams not bothering about the performance and results.

Psychologists advice students to just calm down, relax, get enough sleep, eat healthy, drink enough water and take a break.

Let’s check out different models of EI in the blog coming up.

To deliver the best shipping experience, retailers increasingly need to anticipate their customers’ need for real-time information

Study concentric/mainly focused upon DEPOSCO – cloud-based, e-commerce order management and fulfillment software company

Online shoppers not only expect free shipping, they also expect to receive products the day after they order them, or even within a few hours. That’s putting pressure on retailers to deliver orders cheaper and faster than ever before.

To deliver the best shipping experience, retailers increasingly need to anticipate their customers’ need for real-time information, says Bill Gibson, CEO of Deposco, a supply chain software company.

            Bill Gibson, CEO, Deposco

Customers expect rich data when making product selections—including accurate pricing, shipping fees, time in transit, availability and post-shopping service,” he says. “To offer that, retailers must provide a seamless shopping experience across all channels—but that is often hindered by disparate systems.”

The only way to provide real-time inventory information to customers and ultimately improve fulfillment and delivery is to take a unified commerce approach, and to integrate store, web and marketplace inventory into one system, Gibson says. “There’s certainly an investment in IT and supply chain software required to attack these fulfillment challenges, but significant profit retention can be achieved by implementing more automation between warehouse, shipping carriers and suppliers,” he says.

According to me by using advanced warehousing technology and analytics, retailers may be able to increase sales and reduce shipping times across all channels. With Deposco’s distributed order management (DOM) applications, for example, companies can route orders for last-mile fulfillment based on cost, location, time and available inventory—significantly reducing shipping times and order fulfillment costs.

Illustration exhibiting the efficiency & optimization of supply chain management in the current competitive scenario with the usage of  modern technology with reference to DEPOSCO:

Educational Development Corp. (EDC) was challenged to fulfill a growing number of online orders on time, causing a significant backlog in shipments to be processed. Using Deposco’s supply chain solutions, EDC eliminated paper processes and manual entry, and added scanning technology while also optimizing their inventory replenishment processes. The new supply chain solution improved warehouse efficiency without increasing headcount or adding more labor hours—helping EDC to reduce its cost to fulfill an order by more than 75%. The customized Deposco solution also allowed EDC to boost its warehouse output 150% to 15,000 orders per day from 6,000, which meant the company was able to lower costs while drastically increasing profits.

Fulfillment is extremely challenging, but it’s not impossible. “It takes the right combination of expertise and technology to make significant operational improvements, but fulfillment optimization can result in a big ROI in comparison with other investments companies can make,” Gibson says. “The ability to grow is limited only by the ability to sell and ship orders to customers.”

STRESS

STRESS

Stress  is a most common word heard from people belonging to 16 to 60 years of age.It is always considered as an abnormal state of mind by common people and they are unaware of the exact meaning  ofstress.

According to psychology, stress is a feeling of strain and pressure. It is a type of psychological pain. Small amount of stress may be desirable and even healthy. Stress is considered as positive as it helps in improving performance of an individual by motivation.For example: athletic performances.

REASONS FOR STRESS:

When our mental state does not copeup with the situational demands emotionally, we get strained and stress hormones are released in the body.We can consider stress as a fight against unfavorable or pressurized situations by our body.People usually think stress is a new invention of recent years wherein it is in existence from early human ages.

The stress of early age and modern age is completely different.They had stress of securing their lives from predators, man eating animals, venom of snakes etc., because their lives wereinsecure and they had to lead their life in the forests with the animals as their fellow beings.

The stress may be caused through internal or external factors. Causes of stress will be different from person to person. The author  has tried to list out a few common reasons :

Being unhappy in job,Chronicillness, Expectations,Attachments, Anxiety, Competition, Social obligations.

How to overcome the stress, its impacts, and preventive measures will be discussed in the upcoming editions of the blog.

“Globalization” is a social process, and is readily increasing in today’s world, concentrating more in the social and economic worlds. This increase in globalization has many effects on language, both positive and negative. Although linguistic aspects of globalisation have not received many aspects as other fields, the global face of language is slowly changing, in turn effecting the growth of languages. These effects on language in turn affect the culture of the language in many ways. The impact can either allow languages to speed and dominate or cease to exist.

Language and culture are like contemporaries. Language is in a sense the substance of culture. They serve as an important symbol of social structures, enabling different groups of people to know what ethnic groups they belong to, and what common heritage they share. Without a language, people would lose their cultural as well as geographical identity. In turn language is the bonding force amongst the social structures.

Even today, linguists are not able to give an acute report on the total count of World languages. For them there are around 6,500 different natural languages. The count would exceed 10,000 if considered slangs and dialects of the native languages. Out of these around 6% of  them account for the speech of more than half the world’s population, like Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, Hindi, French, Bengali, Portuguese, Russian, German, Japanese, Arabic, and English. And for about 2000 languages there are around a very limited speakers, fewer than 5000. And around 85% of the world population are well versed in two or more languages.

English is distinguished from other languages by having very significant numbers of non-native speakers, thus making it language most affected by globalization. It’s clear that globalization is making English especially important not just in universities, but in areas such as computing, diplomacy, medicine, shipping, and entertainment.

When we think of global forms of entertainment, we immediately think of the Internet, social media, movies, or television shows.  But, contrary to popular belief, literature also holds an important place in the flow of entertainment. Books today have crossed socio cultural boundaries and borders creating awareness and connecting people worldwide through shared information. Global literature is not a new concept. As new ways emerge of delivering literature to readers worldwide, many scholars are examining the importance of translations on literature, the impact that literature has on culture, and the ways that cultures can transform books.  World literature can be an amazing tool for analyzing globalization because it provides a wonderful example of the ways that information is shared across languages and cultures.

The study of world literature is a powerful tool for global studies because it encompasses so many themes that are important to understanding globalization.  World literature can show us how information is shared between cultures and nations. It provides insight into how cultural artefacts are transformed as they traverse languages and boundaries. It also can help us to understand the ways that new media technologies could be facilitating globalization by creating a public space for the transmission of literature and other information across the globe.

Globalisation definitely affects culture and literature… A person in India can read Dostoyevski or Chekhov in his own language and vice-versa – a Russian student can look up Indian authors on the internet. Another huge progression is online studying. This is opening new doors and opportunities for students globally.

In Asiatic and African countries, globalisation is always associated with, Westernisation and Modernisation. Following this idea globalization is changing the social approach towards the existent cultures and local languages. Adapting western ideologies in contradiction to local cultures or introducing the local cultural flavours globally in English have become the trend.

Aravinda Adiga’s The White Tiger was published in 2008, and before, at the end of that year, it had made its author famous throughout world. This 2008 Booker Prize winner novel studies the contrast between India’s rise as a modern global economic giant and the protagonist, Balram, who comes from rural poverty background. Past six decades have witnessed changes in Indian society, and these changes, many of which are for the better, have overturned the traditional and cultural hierarchies, showcasing the other world that India is more than the land of snake charmers and elephants.

 

The impact of globalization on language and literature is quite significant.  As ideas and beliefs are spread to more parts of the world through information technology and wider access, what has been traditionally defined as “culture” begins to undergo change as newer understandings are integrated into traditional conceptions.  This creates a new vision of what culture envelops and how literature is reflected.  With globalization, it is nearly impossible to stop the spread of ideas, for its very nature brings to light the inter-connectivity of all individuals.  Due to this, the changing conception of literature and culture is almost inevitable in my mind.

 

Languages are the essential medium in which the ability to communicate across culture develops. Knowledge of one or several languages enables us to perceive new horizons, to think globally, and to increase our understanding of ourselves and of our neighbours. Languages are, then, the very lifeline of globalization; without language, there would be no globalization; and vice versa, without globalization, there would be no growth of world languages.

” Men are not prisoners of fate,but only prisoners of their own minds.They have within themselves the  power to become free at any movement.”

-US PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT

We all have different personalities,different wants and needs and different ways of showing our emotions.navigating through this all takes tact and cleverness-especially if we hope to succeed in life.This is where emotional intelligence becomes important.

WHAT IS EMOTIONAL INTELIGANCE(E.I)?

E.I is the ability to recognize your emotions, understand what they are telling you and realize how your emotions effect people around you. It also involves your perception of others, when you understand how u feel, this allows you to manage relationships more effectively.

WHY E I IS IMPORTANT TO STUDENTS

In the busy shedule of attending classes, tutorials,coaching classes,assingmentsand exams,most of the studentsnot only fail to understand others emotions but forget to take care of their own mental health and emotins!!

Our education has always emphasised on academic results,but is that all we need to  get success in our life?why are students performing very well in schools and called as best students not able to handle the college/peer pressure, is this something which cannot be handle or these students have never been taught about this.

In my coming up article i will be sharing with you few tips to enhance EI.

Communication Opportunities Created by the Internet

Abdul

Communication Opportunities Created by the Internet

The Internet has become embedded in every aspect of our day-to-day lives, changing the way we interact with others. This insight struck me when I started out in the world of social media. I created my first social network in 2005, when I was finishing college in the United States—it had a political theme. I could already see that social media were on the verge of changing our way of communicating, helping us to share information by opening up a new channel that cuts across conventional ones.

That first attempt did not work out, but I learned from the experience.I get the feeling that in many countries failure is punished too harshly—but the fact is, the only surefire way of avoiding failure is to do nothing at all. I firmly believe that mistakes help you improve; getting it wrong teaches you how to get it right. Creativity, hard work, and a positive attitude will let you achieve any goal.

In 2006, after I moved to Spain, I created Tuenti. Tuenti (which, contrary to widespread belief, has nothing to do with the number 20; it is short for “tu entidad,” the Spanish for “your entity”) is a social communication platform for genuine friends. From the outset, the idea was to keep it simple, relevant, and private. That’s the key to its success.

I think the real value of social media is that you can stay in touch from moment to moment with the people who really matter to you. Social media let you share experiences and information; they get people and ideas in touch instantly, without frontiers. Camaraderie, friendship, and solidarity—social phenomena that have been around for as long as humanity itself—have been freed from the conventional restrictions of space and time and can now thrive in a rich variety of ways.

Out of all the plethora of communication opportunities that the Internet has opened up, I would highlight the emergence of social media and the way they have intricately melded into our daily lives. Social media have changed our personal space, altering the way we interact with our loved ones, our friends, and our sexual partners; they have forced us to rethink even basic daily processes like studying and shopping; they have affected the economy by nurturing the business startup culture and electronic commerce; they have even given us new ways to form broad-based political movements.

The Internet and Education

The Internet and Education

The Internet has clearly impacted all levels of education by providing unbounded possibilities for learning. I believe the future of education is a networked future. People can use the Internet to create and share knowledge and develop new ways of teaching and learning that captivate and stimulate students’ imagination at any time, anywhere, using any device. By connecting and empowering students and educators, we can speed up economic growth and enhance the well-being of society throughout the world. We should work together, over a network, to build the global learning society.

The network of networks is an inexhaustible source of information. What’s more, the Internet has enabled users to move away from their former passive role as mere recipients of messages conveyed by conventional media to an active role, choosing what information to receive, how, and when. The information recipient even decides whether or not they want to stay informed.

We have moved on from scattergun mass communication to a pattern where the user proactively selects the information they need.

Students can work interactively with one another, unrestricted by physical or time constraints. Today, you can use the Internet to access libraries, encyclopedias, art galleries, news archives, and other information sources from anywhere in the world: I believe this is a key advantage in the education field. The web is a formidable resource for enhancing the process of building knowledge.

I also believe the Internet is a wonderful tool for learning and practicing other languages—this continues to be a critical issue in many countries, including Spain, and, in a globalized world, calls for special efforts to improve.

The Internet, in addition to its communicative purposes, has become a vital tool for exchanging knowledge and education; it is not just an information source, or a locus where results can be published, it is also a channel for cooperating with other people and groups who are working on related research topics.

CREATIVITY

CREATIVITY

Written by MALINI N

Most of us have heard the story of an intelligent crow that put pebbles into a jar of water, till it could reach water to quench its thirst. The normal thing the crow could have done was to fly all over, till it got water. Instead when its beak could not reach water, it found a way for the water to reach its beak. This is a beautiful example of creativity.

Creativity is all about finding unconventional solutions. Such solutions require imagination and out of box thinking. It involves seeing connections between apparently unconnected things, seeing hidden patterns and evolving solutions. Creativity doesn’t end with imagination. It involves actions. Therefore it is creative people who can think differently and produce new ideas or products.

The best examples for the most creative designs in nature range from a human body to a bird’s nest to a crawling worm. Also nature’s designs are the most efficient designs. Thus, instead of simply looking at some solution for the things around us, it is good to think of creative solutions. Every child is born creative. It is only because of environmental factors that few children evolve more creative than others.
As students, you are in the intense learning phase of your life. It is for this reason that you should acquire a high degree of
creativity. Few steps to nurture your creativity are as follows.

Break away from routine – Think and act differently, question the rules with “why this way and why not the other way”. This leads to inventions.
Add value to existing things – Candles were used as light sources. Thomas Alva Edison discovered light bulb which was far
superior to candles in many ways. He failed 1000 times, but did not give up. Creative people should accept failures as a part of learning.

Chase your curiosity – If you have found something interesting, that excites you but not pursued, start working on it immediately.
Set small creative tasks each day and complete it. This will energise you to take up bigger creative tasks.
Spend time with nature – Get away from the monotony and get into a state of peace. Your imagination works better as nature brings calmness in you.
Acquire good reading habit – This gives you new ideas along with your own. It helps in creating new solutions.
If we do not function creatively, we may loose a lot of opportunities in life.
One of the take-aways is to start asking questions like “Why this way and why not the other way?”. List few more take aways for yourself.
