It can be a challenge to make a potential partner agree to collaborate with us. If it is a known acquaintance or someone who owes us a favour, the task becomes a bit easier. If there isn’t any strong, pre-existing relationship, we have to demonstrate logic, rationality and mutual benefits, highlighting what is in it for them.

Example: If we have to convince a celebrity to speak at a college, and don’t have the funds, we can present the engagement to them as a chance to reach a wider audience and showcase their serious side.

Career

EQ is the ability to be able to recognize and regulate your own emotions, while also empathizing with others and maintaining an awareness of their reactions.

EQ can be developed with practice. 

A Sense Of Belonging
  • Belongingness is an emotional need of human beings, a desire to be accepted by a group of people, be it at the school or office.
  • Being part of a group includes acceptance, attention and support.
  • As people strive for belongingness, they also change their behaviour, beliefs and attitudes to conform to the standards and norms of that group.
  • To affiliate with others and be socially accepted is due to a basic intrinsic motivation: The need to belong.
  • It affects our self-presentation, self-assessment and also leads to social comparison.
The consequence of unrealistic goals

Some people love to set super-ambitious goals, thinking that even if they don't make those goals, they'll still achieve more than if they set lower goals. Other people get a buzz with stretch goals. Give them more incentives, and they'll achieve more.

But over-stretched goals can be counterproductive.

  1. Failure becomes excusable. Instead of challenging but achievable goals, piling unrealistic expectations on top of limited resources can lead to a culture of excuses and failure.
  2. If we frequently accept excuses, failure becomes acceptable.
  3. Once we've given people excuses and accepted defeat, we're too close to slipping into a culture where failure is expected.

To better build rapport and counter isolation do the following:

  • smile, tilt your chin lower so you're not looking down on them, and slow down your speech during your video calls, so you come across as being more credible.
  • set a finish time before starting a conversation with someone new to reduce the initial wariness.
  • Be more likable and validate others by listening to them and suspending your ego. Put aside your wish to contribute to the conversation and ask short, open questions like how, when, and why.
An Overwhelmed Team

While a manager expects and assumes the team to be top-notch in their work, completing projects like there is no tomorrow, the reality of workers is quite different. More than half of the workforce is overwhelmed and maxed-out, according to a survey.

A manager cannot pretend everything is hunky-dory and has to recognize the problem and provide solutions.

The Heart/Will/Head model

The Heart/Will/Head model defines three types of people and how they view the world around them.

Using this model is valuable for managers to build stronger teams en get the best work out of each member.

Extroverts Working Remotely

Extroverts thrive in an energetic and frenetic work environment filled with people. Peace, quietness and solitude, while being an introvert’s dream, can drive an extrovert into distraction.

There are many ways for extroverts to enjoy and thrive on the new reality of remote working.

“Be A Strong Writer”

This is one of the first pieces of advice people give to those seeking remote work.

When you work remotely, a few misplaced words can become an occupational hazard. Every word you type (or don’t) is important in conveying your ideas and communicating effectively with your colleagues.

If you decide on becoming a mentor, you might want to consider choosing a mentee who shares your interests. It will make everyone's life easier. Moreover, you will also be able to provide more useful pieces of information, that is to say, to fulfill your duty as mentor.
