4 Reasons Quality Beats Quantity

by Todd Brisson Source: Medium Daily Digest

Convincing you a wild idea — that writing well about what matters is more important and meaningful than writing lots about what is popular.  It’s a hard job.

Current common sense says the person who does the most wins.

First, online content is no longer novel.
The first video was uploaded to Instagram only less than a decade ago. We were all so thrilled that Greg from Iowa could upload directly from his iPhone that we didn’t care the feed was fuzzy, the camera was shaky, or that Greg’s toilet was visible behind him. Now, we consistently see videos of a much higher quality. The novelty is gone. Naturally, we raised our standards as a result.
Although the history of blog posts is longer than Instagram’s, written word has gone through a similar cycle. It’s not that your idea isn’t good. It’s that… well… we’ve probably seen it before at this point.

Second, the sheer volume of noise (caused by everyone following the quantity rule) has our decision-making faculties fatigued.
If you open any social platform and spend 24 straight hours swiping your finger from bottom to top, you would never run out of content. We produce quintillions of bytes of data per day.

What makes you stop and actually consume a piece of work? Is it when you see the same person’s face 33 times in a day?
Probably not.

More likely, it’s remarkable work. A video with a good opening sequence. An photo with a stunning subject. A first line you can’t look away from. In a deluge of items that look identical, you pick the one that stands out.

Third, the platforms themselves are evolving.
It’s hard to overstate the power Big Tech has on the world. They are smarter and bolder now than ever and, frankly, they know much more about our likes and dislikes than it’s comfortable to admit. The goal for most of Silicon Valley now is NOT to feed us general, popular information, but the most quality work in topics we care most about.

A recent post by Coach Tonyhints at the changes happening behind the scenes at (an open blogging platform).
Medium’s incentives are changing… they need to give [paying] subscribers a reason to come here rather than scouring the free content everywhere else. That answer is quality. Popular is not the same as quality. Viral is not the same as quality.

Fourth — and possibly most importantly — quantity has never been the only option, even in the internet age.
Dan Moore spends weeks or months writing unforgettable essays.

Shannon Ashley has received massive recognition for thoughtful, long blog posts every few days on important topics. Tim Urban releases enormous posts “whenever he can,” but everyone reads them immediately.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s possible to do a lot, well. But if you only have the time to choose between “the most you can do” and “the best you can do…”

A Lot of Workers Are Unhappy — But Their Bosses Are Thriving
A global study conducted by Microsoft’s Work Trend Index found that 41% of respondents were considering leaving their jobs

by Mark Editor and Source: Mind Daily Digest

41%: That’s the share of respondents in a 30,000-person global survey of workers conducted by Microsoft’s Work Trend Index who say they are considering leaving their jobs, as reported by Bloomberg.

The survey found that 54% of workers say they are overworked, and 39% say they are exhausted. Their bosses, meanwhile, seem not to be sharing in their struggles, as a majority of managers and company leaders surveyed reported that they were thriving at work.

Working remotely during the pandemic appears to be a mixed bag for workers — while some employees value the flexibility it provides, others suffer from increased isolation and blurred boundaries between work and home. Microsoft also found that the share of messages sent on its Teams messaging app sent after typical work hours had gone up by 42%. In Index, veteran remote worker
Will Leitch listed the common mistakes people tend to make when they work from home, such as neglecting to go outside during the day.

We think it wouldn’t hurt the bosses to get some outdoors time, too — and resist sending employees messages while they’re enjoying some sun.

FAQs of Job Interview!

Souce: Blog Post

Welcome to Career Article Zone ( and the ‘navigator’ of Career Development Center (CDC), Daffodil International University, your handy resource in starting your career.

You are on the spot but do not be caught with your guard down. Here are 10 of the most frequently asked questions (FAQs) during the interview.
Caution: This is merely a guide and not to be treated as textbook answers because there is none.

Question # I    : Tell me about yourself.

Tips:     Prepare a two-to-three minute presentation that briefly introduces yourself (where you are from), your personal interests (hobbies, community involvement, etc.), your work history and recent career experience, with the most time spent on detailing accomplishments in the last two areas.

Question # II    : Why do you want to join this company/organization?

Tips:     This question is intended to clue them in on your motive for wanting to join. So dig up the facts about the company, its culture and market. Don’t offer “give-me”-oriented answers such as “Oh, because it’s such a cool place to work”, “I like your salary and benefits package” or “My friends are already here and it makes it easier for us to hang out together”. Instead, demonstrate what you can chip in to help achieve the company’s goals and how your skills and experience match their requirements.

Question # III    : Why are you looking for a new job?

Tips:     This may seem like a straightforward question, but it is very easy to slip up if you are unprepared. Keep in mind that relating anything in a negative light is in bad form. Even if you got fired from your last job, try to keep your explanation honest, brief and positive. And since most terminations happen because of an ill fit between the company and employee, not so much because of performance, you could also try taking this angle.

If you left voluntarily, do not dwell on the negative reasons for leaving; instead demonstrate how you can make a significant contribution to the company’s objectives.

Some sample answers that may work:

 => I want to move my career in a new direction (Make sure you say something about this new direction).
 => My company was restructuring and I chose to search for better opportunities elsewhere.
 => I decided to make a change because I wanted to keep developing new skills but was unable to do this in my previous company.

Question # IV    : What kind of position are you looking for?

Tips:     Vague answers such as “I want an exciting job” or “I want to grow my skills in this area” show lack of career focus and motivation.  For read more ... click the following link:

Develop a Strong Impression Through Résumé

Source: Skill Jobs Blog Post

Welcome to Career Article Zone ( and the ‘navigator’ of Career Development Center (CDC), Daffodil International University, your handy resource in starting your career.

Where do I start? How do I write a good résumé ? How do I excel in interviews? How does the web approach work? These are some of the many questions you probably would ask yourself when looking for a job. As you go through the INTERVIEW GUIDE, you will find comfort in knowing exactly what to do with yourself.

‘Act as a Salesperson and the product that you are bringing to market is yourself’

Developing a strong impression on your résumé  and during an interview involves knowing your product – which is yourself. Remember that you are now acting as a salesperson and the product that you are bringing to market is yourself.

You can start by creating a strong “profile” about yourself. A profile can be used as the opening statement on your résumé , replacing the typical “objective” statement and it can also be tailored to create an introduction about yourself when networking. A profile provides a summary of your skills and identifies your unique qualities and strengths, which help to market you to the employer.

When writing a profile, consider the following questions:

Who am I? i.e. Oracle Developer, Business Analyst or Project Manager
What do I like to do? i.e. having day to day contact with people, work independently, work in a team environment
What are my skills and abilities? i.e. troubleshooting, organizing, promoting, record keeping
What type of work have I done in the past?
What type of work would I like to do in the future?

An example of a profile statement would be: An innovative software developer with 15 years experience with one of Canada’s leading software firms. Extensive experience in total life cycle management with software development projects. A self starter with a unique flair to plan and organize assignments and manage people.

Also consider your personal characteristics. For example, are you adaptable, friendly, have good judgment, a hard worker, likable, tolerant, flexible? Are you competitive, punctual, reliable, and thorough, with high energy and decisive?

Consider your skills. A skill or aptitude, is something you use to perform a task, or in playing a role. There are three types of skills, namely functional or transferable skills, specific work content skills, and self-management skills.

Functional skill: usually obtained as either an innate talent that comes naturally to you that has been honed by education, experience, or specific training. These skills are also transferable; you can easily take these skills from one job or task to another and apply them to the project you set out to do. Examples would be coaching, editing, analyzing, or delegating.

Work content skill: usually obtained through training, apprenticeship, or on-the-job. Examples would be accounting, driving, hairdressing, or engineering.

Justify your Employability Skills through

Self-Management skills: usually developed in early years at school, through peers, among family. Also referred to as adaptive skills. Examples would be dependability, punctuality, flexibility, and sense of humour.

How To Handle Interviews – Impress The Interviewer!

Source: Skill Jobs Blog Post

Welcome to Career Article Zone ( and the ‘navigator’ of Career Development Center (CDC), Daffodil International University, your handy resource in starting your career.

Where do I start? How do I write a good resume? How do I excel in interviews? How does the web approach work? These are some of the many questions you probably would ask yourself when looking for a job. As you go through the INTERVIEW GUIDE, you will find comfort in knowing exactly what to do with yourself.


The interview is a crucial area. It is not enough to show up for the meeting and hope that inspiration will hit you. While a well-crafted resume will definitely help carry you to first base, it is the interview that will ultimately bring you to home base – or lead you to a strikeout. Therefore, knowing how to play the interview cat-and-mouse game cannot be overemphasized. There are different forms of the interview but the basic principles of good interviewing remain the same.

Dig up all you can about the hiring company and prepare ahead of time by anticipating questions and having ready answers in your head. During the interview, extend a warm handshake, show confidence and enthusiasm and flash your pearly whites. After the interview, do not forget to thank the interviewer and to inquire about what will happen next. Back home, draft and send a Thank You letter to the interviewer immediately.

A serious job seeker should not leave this crucial stage of the search process to chance or luck. Here are 10 rules of thumb for a winning interview performance:

Research beforehand on the company’s services, products and operations. Get details from their annual reports or websites. This way, you will be able to intelligently discuss how your talents, skills and experience can help reach their organizational goals. Bring along additional materials for a successful presentation, such as an extra resume and work samples.

The horrendous traffic is no excuse to be late to your appointment and thus earn debit points from the start. Leave for the interview at least one hour earlier than necessary to cope with any contingencies such as motor breakdown, traffic jams and poor weather.


Remember what they say about first impressions? You may be tempted in this casual-dress age to dress down, but be warned that conservative dress codes still rule the hiring day. Formal clothes show you consider the interview important enough to have taken pains to dress up.

Due to over eagerness or nervousness, some candidates blurt out their response even before the question sinks in, thus giving half-baked answers. Listen carefully and organize your thoughts before answering. If you have done your homework, you will have ready answers for some of the standard questions thrown your way.

It is amazing how some candidates think they can win sympathy points from the interviewer by ranting against a previous employer. On the contrary, this will mark you as a potential troublemaker and raise serious doubts about the real reason you left your job. Concentrate on elaborating your own accomplishments – and squash any impulse to gripe.

স্বপ্নের চাকরী না পাওয়ার ৫টি কারন

প্রাতিষ্ঠানিক শিক্ষা এবং চলমান কর্মদক্ষতা। এর মাঝে রয়েছে সাগর সমান শুন্যস্থান। যেখানে হাবুডুবু খেতে হয় অধিকাংশ উদীয়মান এবং মধ্যম স্তরের job seekers Group। Job Market  এর  সাম্প্রতিক প্রয়োজনীয় দক্ষতা সম্পর্কে সচেতনতার অভাবে job seeker  এর মনে করছেন শুধু শিক্ষাগত যোগ্যতা তার স্বপ্নের চাকরী পাওয়ার জন্য যথেষ্ঠ। অন্যদিকে চাকরীদাতারা বলছেন তাদের প্রাথমিক স্তরের চাকরিতেই আবেদনকারীদের জ্ঞানের গভীরতা পর্যাপ্ত নয়। এতে করে বেড়ে চলেছে বেকারত্বের হার আর কোম্পানিগুলোর মানবসম্পদ ব্যয়।

আমাদের দেশের অধিকাংশ অর্থনৈতিক চালিকাশক্তি নিয়ন্ত্রকারী সেক্টরগুলোর উচ্চপদ সমূহে কর্মরত আছেন বিদেশীরা। কেননা আমরা এখনও দক্ষ জনবল এর সংকট কাটিয়ে উঠতে পারিনি। ফলে প্রাতিষ্ঠানিক শিক্ষা শেষে কাঙ্খিত কোম্পানিতে স্বপ্নের চাকরি প্রাপ্তির অভিযানে চলমান কর্মদক্ষতা/ employment-skills নামক এই মহাসমুদ্র পাড়ি দেওয়াটা এখন job seekers Group এর জন্য একটি বড় চ্যালেঞ্জ। তবে এই চ্যালেঞ্জ যত বড়ই হোক সেটি মোকাবেলা করে কিছু স্বপ্নবাজ তরুন পেয়ে যাচ্ছে তাদের স্বপ্নের চাকরী, কিন্তু কিভাবে?

সেটা বুঝতে হলে প্রথমে আমাদের জানতে হবে সেই সাগর সমান শূন্য স্থানের পেছনে আসল রহস্য কি। সাম্প্রতিক Skill Jobs এর অব্জারভেশনে উঠে এসেছে ৫টি গুরুত্বপুর্ণ কারণ, এগুলো আলোচনা কর হলঃ

১। জীবনের লক্ষ্য নির্ধারণে ভুল সিদ্ধান্ত

খুব কম সংখ্যক স্টুডেন্ট এরই একটি নিজস্ব স্বচ্ছ ভিশন থাকে তারা জীবনে কি চাই এবং সে অনুযায়ী তারা পড়াশোনার ক্ষেত্র পছন্দ করে নেয়। এটা ছাড়া অধিকাংশরাই তাদের পরিবার এবং পারিপার্শিক পরিবেশ দ্বারা প্রভাবিত হয়ে পড়াশোনা বা ক্যারিয়ার নিয়ে দ্বিধায় থাকে এবং ভূল সীদ্ধান্ত নেয়। অনেক কষ্টে হয়তো কেউ চাকরি পেয়ে যায় কিন্তু কর্মজীবনে বেশি উন্নতি করতে পারে না।

২। দূরদর্শিতার অভাব

বেশিরভাগ job seekers Group এর লক্ষ্যই থাকে যে কোন একটা চাকরী পেলেই হয়। তাই   job search  করার ক্ষেত্রে নিজের দক্ষতা যাচাই না করে, কোম্পানী সম্পর্কে না জেনে, চাকরিদাতা কি চাচ্ছেন সেটা না বুঝে, চাকরীর দায়ীত্ব কর্তব্য গুলো ভালোভাবে না পড়ে, একটার পর একটা আবেদন করেই চলেছে । এতে করে শুধু সময়ই নষ্ট হয়। স্বপ্নের চাকরী রয়ে যায় নাগালের বাইরে। সুদূর-প্রসারী লক্ষ স্থির না করে এভাবে এলোমেলো পরিকল্পনাহীন আবেদন করতে থাকলে অনেক সময় কিছু কোম্পানির ব্লক লিস্টে নাম চলে আসতে পারে।

৩। সঠিক গাইডলাইন

স্বপ্নের চাকরী না পাওয়ার অন্যতম একটি কারণ হল সঠিক গাইডলাইন। বর্তমান প্রতিযোগিতামূলক চাকরীর বাজারে নিজেকে যোগ্য প্রার্থী হিসেবে তৈরি করতে হলে একটা সঠিক গাইডলাইনের ভীষন দরকার। মাঝিবিহীন নৌকা যেমন কূল খুজে পাই না তেমনি সঠিক দিকনির্দেশনা ছাড়া প্রতিযোগিতায় নিজের অবস্থান টিকিয়ে রাখাটা খুবই কঠিন। একজন ভাল খেলোয়ারের নেপথ্যে থাকে একজন কোচ এর অবদান, একটা ব্লকব্লাস্টার সিনেমার পেছনে থাকে কোন এক বিশেষজ্ঞ বা দক্ষ টিম এর দিকনির্দেশনা।

৪। বিনিয়োগের ভয়

আমরা অনেকেই পার্থক্য করতে পারি না কোন টা খরচ আর কোনটা বিনিয়োগ। কম সংখ্যাক চাকরী প্রত্যাশিই আছেন যারা চাকরীর জন্য নিজেকে প্রস্তুত করতে বিনিয়োগ করেন। কভার লেটার ডিজাইন থেকে শুরু করে চাকরীর ইন্টারভিউ পর্যন্ত প্রতিটা বিষয়ে সচেতন হওয়া জরুরী। একটা চাকরীর জন্য সঠিক ড্রেস-আপ, গ্রূমিং এবং প্রয়োজনীয় ট্রেইনিং এ অনেকে বিনিয়োগ করতে চায় না, ভয় হয় যদি চাকরীটা না হয়। এ ধরনের মানসিকতা নিজের মধ্যে হীনমন্যতাকে প্রশ্রয় দেয়, আত্নবিশ্বাস হারিয়ে যায়, ফলে ইন্টারভিউ ভালো হয় না।

৫। প্রযুক্তি-জ্ঞানে অনীহা

কোভিড-১৯ এর পর সারা বিশ্ব এখন প্রযুক্তি নির্ভর হয়ে পড়েছে। শিক্ষা-প্রতিষ্ঠান, অফিস-আদালত সবই এখন ডিজিটাল প্রযুক্তিতে রুপান্তরিত হয়েছে। চিঠি আদান-প্রদান থেকে শুরু করে মিটিং, ট্রেইনিং, বিক্রয় এমনকি চাকরীর আবেদন, পরীক্ষা, সাক্ষাতকার অধিকাংশ এখন অনলাইনেই হয়। আর এই প্রক্রিয়ার মধ্যে নিজেদেরকে সম্পৃক্ত করার জন্য আমদের ডিজিটাল টুলস সম্পর্কে জ্ঞান থাকা আবশ্যক। অনেক কোম্পানি গুগল মিট কিংবা জুম এর সাহায্যে ইন্টারভিউ নিয়ে থাকে, অনেকে এটাকে ঝামেলা মনে করে ইন্টারভিউ ফেইস করে না। কিংবা জয়েন করলেও সঠিক ব্যাবহার না জানার কারনে ইন্টারভিউ থেকে বাদ পড়ছেন।

চ্যালেঞ্জ যত বড়, তা মোকাবেলা করার হাতিয়ার তত ছোট আর এটা নির্ভর করে আমরা সেটা কোন দৃষ্টিকোন থেকে দেখছি তার উপর। যাদের আছে অদম্য স্পৃহা, লেগে থাকার প্রবণতা আর আকাশ ছোয়া স্বপ্ন তাদের জন্য Skill Jobs নিয়ে এসেছে Premium Jobseekers নামে নতুন এক প্রোগ্রাম। এই প্রোগ্রাম এর সফলতা  এবং Skill Jobs টিমের জন্য শুভ কামনা রইলো।

৫টি শক্তিশালী শব্দের ব্যবহারে সমৃদ্ধ করুন আপনার কমিউনিকেশন স্কিল!

প্রতিদিন সারাক্ষন, করণ অথবা অকারণ, আমরা চালিয়ে যায় আমাদের কথোপকথন। একে অন্যের সাথে মনের ভাব আদান প্রদান এর জন্য আমরা কত কথাই না বলি। আমাদের কথার মধ্যে কিছু বিশেষ শব্দ অত্যন্ত সচেতন ভাবে উপস্থাপন করতে পারলে সেটা মানুষের হৃদয়ে অনুভূতির সৃষ্টি করে। আর এখানেই যোগাযোগের সার্থকতা, তাই Communication Skill টাকে আরও সমৃদ্ধ করতে হলে আমাদের ভাষায় ব্যাবহত শব্দের উপর গুরুত্ব দিতে হবে। নিল স্ট্রাস নামে একজন লেখক তার বিখ্যাত ‘দ্য গেম’ বইতে দেখিয়েছেন যদি সঠিকভাবে কথা বলা যায় তাহলে তা অন্য লোকদের উপর অসাধারণ প্রভাব ফেলে। কিছু শব্দ এতটায় শক্তিশালী যে তা সঠিকভাবে প্রয়োগ করতে পারলে মানুষের হৃদয় ছুয়ে যায়। আজ তেমনি ৫টি শব্দ আপনাদেরকে নতুন করে পরিচয় করিয়ে দেব।

প্রথম শব্দটি হলো ‘এখন’ ।

এই শব্দটির মধ্যে লুকিয়ে আছে একটি ব্যপক তাড়না। এটা যখন আপনি শুনবেন তখন এর মানে হলো এ অনুরোধটি বা কাজটি আপনাকে এক্ষুনি করতে হবে। আমরা প্রতিনিয়ত বিভিন্ন বিজ্ঞাপণ চিত্রে এ ধরনের শব্দের ব্যবহার দেখতে পায়। যেমন, Call Now, Register Now, Shop Now, Book Now ইত্যাদি। অধিকাংশ টেলিভিশন বিজ্ঞাপন গুলোতে এই ‘এখন’ শব্দটি অত্যন্ত সুনিপুণ ভাবে উপস্থাপন করা হয়। এতে কাস্টমার রা ঐ পণ্যটি কেনার ব্যাপারে এক ধরনের তাগিদ অনুভব করেন।

দ্বিতীয় শব্দটি হলো ‘কারণ’।

ছোটবেলায় আব্বু বলতেন দুপুরের রোদে বাইরে খেলতে যেওনা । আমি বলতাম, আমি তো শুধু – – -। জীবন, আমি বলেছি না বাইরে যাওয়া যাবে না। কিন্তু কেন আব্বু? এরপর আব্বু বলতেন ‘ কারণ আমি বলেছি।’ তখন থেকেই বুঝতাম কারণ শব্দটির মানে হল এটাই চুড়ান্ত রায়। এর পরে আর কোনো প্রশ্ন করা যাবে না।

আপনি যদি কাউকে কোন অনুরোধ করে তার পেছনে একটি কারণ যোগ করে দিতে পারেন তাতে আপনার অনুরোধ রক্ষা হওয়ার সম্ভাবনা দারুনভাবে বেড়ে যায়। রবার্ট সিয়ালডিনি তার বই, ‘Influence: The Psychology Persuasion’ বইতে বলেছেন, ‘ মানুষের আচারনের একটি বহু প্রচলিত নীতি হলো যদি আমরা কাউকে আমাদের একটি উপকার করতে বলি তাহলে সেটি সফল হবে যদি এর পেছনে একটি কারণ খাড়া করতে পারি। মানুষ যা করে তার পেছনে কারণ দেখতে চায়।’

তৃতীয় শব্দটি হলো ‘প্লিজ’।

মনোগত ভাবে এই শব্দটি দিয়ে  যেকোন আদেশ বা নির্দেশকে কোমল করে দেওয়া যায়। আমরা বন্ধু-আত্নীয় মহলে কিংবা অফিসিয়াল কাজে এই শব্দটা প্রায় ব্যাবহার করে থাকি। প্লিজ শব্দটার মাঝে এক ধরনের ম্যাজিক লুকিয়ে আছে। যখন আমরা এটা কাউকে বলি তখন ঐ মানুষটি ভালো বোধ করেন এবং বিনিময়ে তারা আমাদেরকে পছন্দ করেন। জীবন চলার পথে অনেক জটিল সমস্যা এই শব্দটি ব্যাবহারের মাধ্যমে সমাধান করা যায়।

চতুর্থ শব্দটি হলো ‘সরি’।

দুটি অক্ষরের এই ছোট শব্দটির মধ্যে লুকিয়ে রয়েছে বৃহৎ এবং জটিল সমস্যা সমাধানের এক বিস্ময়কর জাদু। বন্ধু-বান্ধব, আত্মীয়-স্বজন, অথবা পরিবারের মধ্যে ঝগড়া-বিবাদ কিংবা মান অভিমান এর মত অস্বস্তিকর পরিস্থিতি নিমিষেই সৌহার্দপূর্ণ পরিবেশে বদলে ফেলা যায়। শুধু সঠিক সময়ে সঠিক জায়গায় এই মিরাকেল শব্দটি ব্যাবহারের মাধ্যমে।

পঞ্চম শব্দটি হলো ‘থ্যাংক ইউ’।

অত্যন্ত শক্তিশালী এবং ইতিবাচক একটি শব্দ ‘থ্যাংক ইউ’। সাইকোলজিতে ‘থ্যাংক ইউ’ কথাটিকে ব্যাখা করা হয়েছে পারস্পরিক বিনিময় বা প্রতিদান হিসেবে। এটি ব্যবহারের মাধ্যমে আমাদের প্রতি অন্যদের মনে একটি ইতিবাচক মনোভাব তৈরি হয়। ছোট ছোট কাজের প্রশংসা স্বরূপ থ্যাংক ইউ বলাটা খুবই জরুরী। কাজের প্রতিদান হিসেবে কাউকে থ্যাংক ইউ বললে সে পরবর্তীতে আমাদেরকে আরও সাহায্য করতে আগ্রহ বোধ করে। কেউ যদি আপনাকে কোন উপহার দেয়, নিশ্চয় আপনি তখন তাকেও কোন উপহার দেওয়ার একটা তাগিদ অনুভব করেন।

আমাদের দৈনন্দিন কার্যক্রমে মানুষের সাথে যোগাযোগের ক্ষেত্রে এই ৫টি শব্দ সঠিকভাবে উপস্থাপন করতে পারলে সহজেই অন্যের মনে স্থান করে নেওয়া যাবে। এতে মানুষের সাথে হৃদ্যতার সম্পর্ক তৈরি হবে। আমাদের Communication Skill হবে আরো সমৃদ্ধশালী ।

If you’ve been at your job for a while, you might be getting comfortable around your co-workers, which could lead to unprofessional habits. Unprofessional behavior in the workplace can vary from getting too drunk at a party to going on social media all day – instead of working. If you’re an ambitious girl boss who wants to make sure you are excelling, regardless of the amount of time you’ve been at your job, make sure you aren’t doing these 10 unprofessional habits at your job right now.

I mean…we’ve all been there. A co-worker pings you after an uncomfortable meeting starting the ever-so-comfortable gossip conversation that makes you feel included and happy all at the same time. All of a sudden, you are initiating the negative-speak in a not-so-private way.

Or maybe it’s the holiday Christmas party you’ve been to 5 times by now. And by your fifth drink your feeling toasted (because you can’t handle your alcohol like you could when you were 23).

Whatever it is, make sure you are not accidentally acting unprofessional at work. Stop doing these 10 unprofessional habits to stop doing at your job right now:

Complaining is one of the most unprofessional habits to do around the workplace. Complaining is unprofessional for a multitude of reasons. If you are complaining about your personal life, it could come off like you don’t have your life together, and cause your coworkers to see you differently.

If you are complaining about something at work, you could easily ruffle feathers. What if you are complaining about someone’s project that they worked on? Complaints in the workplace are so easy to avoid, keep your voice positive and you will be viewed in a more professional light.

Going on Social Media
Going on social media is an easy way to look unprofessional at your job. Especially if your co-workers can see your computer screen, it can make you come off lazy – or like you aren’t working hard.

Going on social media during work can also make you seem unfocused! It’s so important to keep your perception positive at work, and spending your day on Facebook, Instagram or TikTok is not going to help your case.

Being late to meetings
Being late to meetings comes off so unprofessional! It makes you look like you might be behind, or not have your work together. Try this instead: make your meetings on your calendar 25 minutes, instead of 30 – so you have 5 minutes of transition time in between meetings.

At work, perception is so important! If you can keep the view on yourself that you have your life together, you’ll be in good shape. Don’t be late to meetings at work!

Interrupting your coworkers
If you frequently interrupt your co-workers, you might be coming off unprofessional at your job. It also comes off like you aren’t a team player – so absolutely something you want to avoid. Try things, after your co-worker finishes talking, give it a beat to make sure they are done, THEN start talking.

If you are gossiping with your co-workers about work, you might end up not looking professional at your job. In general, gossiping is not a good move – who likes a gossip? But at work, you could be spreading false information. And people catch on – if you are likely to gossip to them, what makes you less likely to gossip around them?

Me? I stay away from people who gossip at work. It’s never a good look and always makes me feel like they don’t have their stuff together.

Eating smelly food
Bringing broccoli or Brussel sprouts your desk? Clogging up the office microwave? Be careful of eating smelly food at your desk at work, it could draw unnecessary attention and make you look unprofessional.

The smelly food aspect of work is more about drawing unnecessary attention to yourself at the workplace, and having others associate you in a potentially negative light. That is something you want to avoid!

Being late

Being late to work could make you come off unprofessional. Anything that could have others perceive you as lazy and not on top of your work is something you absolutely want to avoid.

It’s so easy to be on time for work. If you are unsure of the time you need to be at work, look at when most of your other co-workers come in. You don’t want to be the last one. When everyone is hard at work and you stroll in late, that comes off unprofessional. Being late is never a good look!

Oversharing about your personal life at work? This could come off unprofessional. I get that sometimes we become friends with people at work. If that’s the case, that’s fine. But, if you are droning on in a meeting about something personal (and NSFW), it could come off unprofessional.

Especially as women, we have to work harder for others to see us in the same professional light. That’s why following these rules are so important.

Drinking too much at office events
Office events are supposed to be fun, but getting out of control and drinking too much could damage your reputation. Drinking too much at office events could make you come off unprofessional, or worse, lose you your job.

If your anything like me you like to have a little fun when you drink. That means drinking too much at an event could ruin your reputation. Don’t drink too much at work – you risk coming off unprofessional (and probably will). Know your limits and you should be good to go.

Wearing casual clothes
Sporting leggings and sweatshirts to your 9-5 job? Coming to work like you are going to a work out class could come off more unprofessional than you think. I know so many office cultures allow casual work-wear, but there’s a way to do it that still looks professional. There’s something about being in a meeting with someone who actively looks like a boss, and someone who looks like they just rolled out of bed. Wearing casual clothes at work (especially work out clothes) can come off unprofessional.

You could always follow this business capsule wardrobe ideas for easy professional looks around the office.

What habits are you going to change about your work life? Comment below.

The Four Stages of Coping With Change

Change can be difficult to deal with, even when it's for the better.

Chances are that, at some stage, you've experienced a big change in your life.

Maybe it was a positive one. Starting a new job , or moving house, for instance. Or, perhaps it was painful. Losing your job or taking a pay cut, for example.

Depending on your specific situation, your reaction will have varied from excitement to fear. But, in all cases, your attitude toward the change likely affected your experience of it.

The good news is that we can improve how we cope with change by recognizing our reactions to it.

Most people react to change in four main stages.

During stage one, you'll likely experience shock and disorientation. You'll feel confused and uncertain.

Overcome this by seeking out reliable information to guide you. Ask your manager and HR team for help, and talk through your concerns with them. But, avoid listening to gossip and rumors . They'll only cause you more pain, not less!

You might not reach a firm conclusion at this stage about what the change means for you, but remaining as positive as you can will help.

In the second stage, disorientation usually gives way to strong emotions.

By now, you might feel angry or fearful about the impact of the change. And you might start to find yourself becoming more pessimistic. This is natural.

But, however hard it is, try to keep your emotions under control. Acknowledge how you feel, but be careful about what you express openly.

Wait until you can think more clearly before you decide how you want to proceed.

During stage three, you start to come to terms with your new situation and can begin to explore what it means for you.

Resist any lingering feelings of resentment. Instead, focus on the positive aspects of the change. And be patient. Coming to terms with change is a gradual process, and one that can't be rushed.

In the fourth and final stage, you accept the change and move forward.

This doesn't mean giving up entirely on your former situation. You'll still have valuable memories, skills and relationships that you can keep and carry forward with you.

But, you're ready to move on. So, start setting yourself some new goals, or, better yet, develop an Action Plan  that'll help you make the most of your new situation.

Top Six Tips for Changing
Unhelpful Behaviors for Good

Reference: P-Interest

New Year, Old Habits!
Every season of good cheer, good will and merriment, the last thing we want to think about is changing. Yet every New Year is just around the corner, ready to receive our plans, intentions and ideas for change. There is always this sinking feeling when we talk about change. We don’t like change; we like things to remain as they are. Not many of us like to be told to change. This can be intimidating, upsetting and downright patronizing. We have the right intentions. We should really be making plans but there is always tomorrow, next week, next month, or even next year—same as there was last year!

Messages Telling Us to Change Are Everywhere
We are constantly bombarded by messages that are telling us to change. These come from our loving family, our well-meaning friends, health professionals, media and from the government itself. Everywhere we look, there are messages telling us not to drink too much, not to eat too much and not to smoke. We know these mean well, but why is it so hard to follow them? What are the barriers and hurdles that we come against in accepting the validity of such messages?
Firstly, these are external. We have no control or ownership of them. We feel we are being nagged incessantly. It becomes white noise, lost in reception. We may get angry and annoyed. We feel like a little child who wants to be naughty just to be spiteful. We don't want to be told what to do. We are our own masters, thank you very much.

Why Do We Resist Change?
Yet, it is hard. There is that part of the brain that makes it all look so hard. It’s the same part of the brain that has all the excuses written and ready. "I am too busy. I‘ve got too much on. I have a lot of people to look after. My work is too hard. I’m always tired. I enjoy this too much. I am too stressed. I don’t believe in the things they say."

Strategies for Implementing Change

1. Positive Visioning
We do know we have to change because our bodies are constantly changing and being affected by the things we do. We want to be healthy, and to be there to enjoy the fruits of our working life. We want to do the things we’ve always planned to do, such as spending time with children, travelling, indulging in that hobby we’ve secretly nurtured and visiting family and friends in faraway places. We need the strength and energy to do all this. We want not to be ill.

One strategy that helps is positive visioning. We need to visualise what it would be like to be fitter and healthier. We need to avoid thinking in double-negatives—"I don't want to be ill" has not got the same impact as "I want to be healthy".

We need to visualise strongly the benefits of healthy living in specific, measurable terms—money saved, time saved, looks maintained, energy generated, benefits socially and at work, etc.

2. Develop Broad Aims and Specific Goals
To start with, we need to agree on our aims. We need to sign a contract with ourselves that we have collectively agreed with our addictive part of the brain that we own our aims. These aims can be simple yet clear. There should be no confusion or subversion.

Never mind the external messages, we need internal messages that inform our vision. We need our own personal commandments.

I am going to eat sensibly so that I can maintain/lose weight (or gain, if you are underweight).
I am going to drink in measured fashion so I can enjoy my drink socially and healthily.
I am going to ensure my physical fitness is in peak condition.
I am going to spend more time with my family.
I am going to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
Where are you in the stages of behavior change?

3. Identify Problems and Accept Change
So, how do we change?

First, we need to be aware there is a problem. If we live in denial, we cannot change. Then, we need to look at the scale of the problem. Is it early or is it approaching a crisis? Is it a preventive strategy or do we need to act quicker? For example, someone diagnosed with a heart problem, diabetes or arthritis needs a much more immediate plan than someone not yet diagnosed.

Accept the change

We need to accept that change is needed. It should come from within. We should do it for ourselves. This is called ownership—we need to own the problem and the solutions. If we do it for others, no matter how strong-willed we are, our resolve will weaken at moments of despair.

However, there are always other factors. We need to look at what stage of change we are at (or the persons we are trying to help change are at). There are different stages of change readiness.

5. Develop SMART Objectives
SMART objectives are more helpful than vague ones. SMART is an acronym that means:

SPECIFIC: We need to make specific, measurable plans. Not vague ones. "I will eat sensibly. I’ll drink less." These are vague, unclear targets that have no specificity. We need to say "I will cut down portion sizes by this much. I will stop snacking in between meals. I will stop drinking alcohol weekdays and alternate weekends."
MEASURABLE: We need to measure progress and keep reminding ourselves of how far we've come. We need to find alternate rewards. See, we do the things we do because it gives us pleasure. We need to find new ways of rewarding our brain so it doesn’t lose the will. A measure of progress, weight lost, number of cigarettes we have reduced by, money saved, calories burnt—they can all be kept in a diary and measured to give us a sense of achievement.
ACHIEVABLE: Often, we fail because we aim too high (although this is not always a problem). We need to look first at what is achievable and make this our primary target. Going for higher targets is great but if we have failed in our past attempts at changing perhaps its because we didn't address this.
REALISTIC: Objectives may need to be grounded in reality, at least for managing personal change. We can dream high and have high ambitions. But when it comes to shedding an old habit and developing new habits, it may be better to have some realistic objectives. While a 40-a-day smoker can dream of stopping cold turkey, it may be more realistic to cut down in incremental steps.
TIME-BOUND: We need to set clear dates to achieve things by. This gives us a schedule and a sense of urgency. If we time our objectives, they can forever get dragged and postponed.

6. Seek Support
Most of all, we need support—family, friends and health professionals—there are armies of support out there and they can help. They can pat us on the back, give positive feedback and makes us feel good. We can seek support via people who know and have helped manage change. We need to seek support and solace, but we need to be honest with those who are trying to help us.

More importantly, we need to be honest with ourselves!

As a wise man once said, "The only thing constant is change."

It is not easy. But it can be done. When truly want to, we can move mountains. We can harness lightning. We can travel to the stars.

Appreciation, Patience, Tolerance & Ethics / Managing Your Boundaries

Managing Your Boundaries
Ensuring That Others Respect Your Needs

Establish and control your personal and professional boundaries.

Good fences make good neighbors– Old proverb

Fences allow you to protect what's valuable to you. They also allow you to control who and what enters your space.

Our personal boundaries do a similar job. They set the limits that separate us from other people – not necessarily to exclude interaction, but to protect what matters to us, and to control who enters our psychological space, as well as our physical space.

Boundaries also foster more productive work environments. Co-workers' differing values, needs and beliefs sometimes lead to conflict, resentment and stress, so clearly defined boundaries can help to prevent these negative reactions.

Important movements such as #MeToo and #BLM have also highlighted how important these boundaries are to all of us, as human beings.

But, if personal boundaries are such a vital part of our interpersonal interactions, why do so many of us struggle to build them?

This article will help you to assess, strengthen and maintain your own personal boundaries, in order to make life easier and more rewarding for you and those around you.

Why Are Boundaries Important?
Boundaries are a crucial part of keeping relationships mutually respectful . They help you to look after yourself and those around you.

People who set strong personal boundaries empower  themselves to exercise greater choice. They have a more robust sense of psychological safety, find it easier to relax, and are generally happier and healthier.

However, many people struggle to establish boundaries. They are held back by low self-esteem , a dread of upsetting people, or a fear of conflict. They may simply accept intrusions and interruptions , or subsume their personal feelings "for the good of the team."

It's natural to want to be seen as a capable, reliable "extra miler ," but people who fail to set boundaries risk "generosity burnout,"  as others take unfair advantage of them. This can leave people feeling exhausted, humiliated and hurt.

For these reasons, establishing robust personal boundaries isn't selfish or arrogant. It's simply an essential part of treating yourself – and those around you – with compassion and consideration.

Even people with strong personal boundaries can experience bad behavior from others.

If harassment or other inappropriate behavior becomes an issue for you, talk to your manager, or to your HR department if your manager is part of the problem.

How to Manage Your Boundaries
There are four main stages to managing your boundaries.

Stage 1: Analyzing Your Boundaries
Ask yourself these questions:

Do you sometimes doubt that you have a right to have your needs met, or make little effort to have them met?
Do you avoid speaking up for yourself, and do you "let things go" without reacting to bad situations?
Do you tend to avoid conflict? Do you let others have their way or allow them to make decisions for you?
Do you sometimes agree to do things that you really don't want to do – and later regret it?
If you answered mostly "yes," then chances are that people see you as a "soft touch" who they can manipulate into doing what they want, without negotiation. It's time, then, to start strengthening your boundaries!

Stage 2: Understanding Your Needs
You may believe that to get along with others, or to do the job that you're paid to do, you need to give much more than you take. Perhaps you say things like, "Whatever you choose will be great!" and agree to do things that you don't want to do, and shouldn't have to do.

This may avoid conflict with others, but it can create conflict inside you. Anger and tension can build because you're not getting what you need, and this can lead to bad behavior or burnout. It's far better to identify what you need and develop strategies to ensure that your needs are met.

So, think of times when you felt angry, tense or resentful, or times when your reaction to something embarrassed you. These were likely occasions when your needs were not met.

Ask yourself these questions:

What need were you denied?
What did you really want?
Then, use positive affirmations  like the following to articulate your specific needs:

I have a right to ask for ________, because I need ________.
It's OK to protect my time by________, because I need ________.
I will not allow others to________, because I need _______.
This process of self-reflection and positive reinforcement will help you to develop the emotional intelligence  to understand and manage your needs. Don't minimize your own self-worth – you deserve the treatment and respect that you give to others!

Stage 3: Setting Healthy Boundaries
Now that you understand the needs and boundaries that must be in place for you to be happy, you must change your behavior –  and let others know. They won't figure it out on their own!

The key is to be assertive . This means being firm – but not aggressive – about your own rights, needs and boundaries, while considering those of others. When you're assertive, you get your point across firmly and fairly, but with empathy.

An essential part of this is to practice saying "no," politely but firmly. Many people find this hard. After all, we are social animals, and we like to be liked, and useful to others.

But if you say "yes" to everything, you risk not having enough time to do anything properly. You also risk not working on the things that are truly important, and you'll end up feeling used or frustrated. Far better to say "no"  more often, and to concentrate on meeting your needs.

Mind Tools Club members can learn some practical strategies for saying "no" from our Coaching Clinic, Why Can I Never Say NO?

Effective time management is another crucial element of boundary-setting. When you put all your energy into one thing, without taking time for both your work and personal responsibilities, you risk overloading yourself. With good time management, you can get things done more efficiently and effectively.

Skills such as prioritization , delegation  and scheduling  can help you to allocate your time and energy more wisely.

Workplace Behavior / HR Best Practices in Bangladesh

HR Best Practices in Bangladesh

Mr. Md. Musharrof Hossain, President, Bangladesh Society for Human Resources Management (BSHRM), ( & Head, Human Resources Management, icddr,b

Source: Blog Post

HR practice in Bangladesh is better than the past. In the past, HR role was concentrated to hiring firing and letter issuance-dispatching-filing stage. Now it has started to perform more than that. Such as ….Employee motivation, Employee development, employee retention, facilitating organizational development initiatives etc. and thus contributes to the achievement of organizational goals. These value added job has just begun in Bangladesh. For a good tomorrow, this is a starting point.

Bersin and Associates Research Report says, in the years since, HR leaders have fought an enormous battle to change the profession. The challenge for HR now is in living up to the high expectations that come with the seat – expectations of high impact. It is not easy. As HR leaders seek to identify and advocate for the best possible people-related business decisions, they often lack the kind of data, process support and industry-level standards that leaders of other functions rely on for guidance. In crafting the internal transformation that new expectations require (reevaluating the HR function’s purpose, structure, services and delivery models, as well as capabilities of the staff), too many HR leaders essentially must cobble together a new vision for their HR functions with few examples of excellence for guidance.

Despite all the challenges, following are the best practices observed through interaction and sharing by HR professionals in various HR forums.

HR Best Practices in Bangladesh

HR Education: Human Resources education has been started in almost all universities in Bangladesh. Universities are now offering BBA/MBA majoring in Human Resources. This is creating more opportunities for job seekers and the employers as a whole. As an example, government has decided to establish an HR ministry under which the HR professional education will be reinforced; BSHRM introduced two new diploma courses for facilitating the learning of applied HR issues for non-HR and HR people.

Western countries, including UK, USA and Canada, have already focused research efforts on studying multi-generational diversity in organisations. They have categorised generations using a widely accepted practitioner classification based on birth years related to significant events in history in the western context. The categories so defined are: Veterans, born between 1925 and 1945; Baby Boomers, born between 1946 and 1964; Gen X, born between 1965 and 1977; Gen Y born between 1978 and 1999; and Gen Z, born 2000 and after.

The Generational Gap

The entrance of generation Y and Z into the labour market has and will create a change not only in the age of the labour force, but also in values and preferences when it comes to career and working life. The millennial generations, Generation Y and Z, are able to integrate technology into every aspect of their work whereas older generations in general are not as familiar with technology which could lead to a generation gap. The lack of emerging technologies in the workplace and varying perspectives of different generations have led to a rift between employers and employees and managers are finding it hard to engage millennial generations who are mostly entry level employees leading to a high employee turnover in many organisations. Organisations need to learn how to actively engage the millennials while ensuring that the needs of the older generations are not neglected in the process.

Attracting and Retaining Generation Y and Z

According to the recent study conducted by PWC (2011) millennial generations want more work life balance options such as flexi-time. There is a strong emphasis on balanced work ethics; millennials have good educations thus they are demanding for more flexible work patterns. This leads to recruitment challenges of matching more home-oriented candidates with more firm-oriented work roles. Companies that consider the needs of this generation will be able to attract competent management and good employees and be able to retain them.

Millennial generations also want to work with companies that are well positioned globally, thus companies that concentrate on branding and corporate recognition through peer networks instead of traditional advertising, will be attractive to this age group.

To millennial generations, e-mail is a slow and inefficient tool that is used for communication at work. To attract generation Y and Z, organisations must learn how to adapt new ways to communicate and attract candidates. If organisations are not going social, they will not get the best talents. Building a community around your brand and its values will help to engage these new talents. Organisations should use YouTube, use humour, and go viral with their recruitment efforts.

To attract and retain Gen Y and Z management is ‌expected to communicate with employees in a more relaxed environment through social media. ‌Communication must be interactive and two-way. Companies that hope to be attractive employers may need to change their management and communication structures. Other management ‌structures, such as the virtual office may flow more easily with new organisations rather than those already established. Social media is becoming a major part of the way candidates receive information, thus organisations need to take this seriously to be noticed by the new generations.

Corporate Social Responsibility will continue to be a major issue, with a lot more emphasis on CSR, and the eco-awareness that began in the late 1990’s. These generations are looking for a micro-level approach to a green workplace where they can actively contribute within the company. They desire an organised sense of belonging and inclusion – reflected in areas such as personalised workstations. One of the keys to being attractive to the millennial generations is to be a lifelong learner. The days of thinking “school is for learning and work is for working” are gone. Organisations can set their company apart from the competition by being at the top of hiring young talent before everyone else figures it out.
