Constructive Conversation and Success in the Work Place

Success in the workplace is synonymous to being able to work harmoniously and productive with your employees and colleagues. Oftentimes, people who successfully climb the corporate ladder are those who are socially equipped–those who can interact better with other people, rather than those people who possess greater technical knowledge. Thing is, the higher positions in companies require more social skills than technical skills.

It is a critical skill that no one can teach you, not even the academe. A part of dealing with difficult people is handling conflicts. Conflicts are one of the most difficult situations and most of the time, conflicts can result to one of the two: a permanently damaged relationship or a bottled up conflict that is a ticking bomb.

It’s not good to set aside unresolved issues. It is best dealt with through a good conversation. The key to dealing with difficult people and situations through conversation is how the conversation was handled. Of course, you must employ both verbal and non-verbal techniques in order to have a constructive conversation. Good choice of words can also help win your cause.

The Difficult People in the Work Scene.

The office is as complicated as any unit of a community. There are patterns, norms, politics and behaviors that are constantly working against each other or together. The greatest challenge in the office scene is working with difficult people classic line 6 keyboard. Now, who are the “difficult” people?

According to some sources, there are 6 types of people in the workplace:

1. Hostile Individuals. These are people who are rude and appear angry all the time.
2. Chronic Complainer. These people tend to complain about anything under the sun–may it be important or not.
3. Super-Agreeable. These types of people always seek to please and will agree with you no matter what.
4. The Pessimist. These kinds of people always see the negative side of things.
5. Know-it-all Expert. These people either know too much for their own good or are just pretending to know and sometimes, their knowledge hinders them from empathizing with other people.
6. The Staller. These people tend to not voice out their opinions in fear of making others unhappy.

Because each type is a complex matter, a person must know how to deal with the different types as to not be affected and hindered in their growth and development in the corporation that they are working for.


Frozen: My own review.

There are only two genres in movies which I watch in the cinema: (1) horror and (2) cartoons.

Last week, I went to the cinema to watch Frozen with a friend. I was curious as to how good it was because I really read a lot of good reviews about it buy rane sixty-one mixer. Most of my friends had high praises for the movie and they told me that I’d love it because it is a musical (it is known to a lot of people that I really like singing along to songs). So yeah, I watched it finally.

The thing is, I think that it’s just OK– not bad and not also worthy of my high praises. Even the songs in the movie are not as good if you compare it to the OST of Brother Bear, Mulan and others. And there’s no really build up of characters and story. It was just not touching as it should have been. All I can say is that I’ve seen better.

The Grim Grip of Greed.

Greed is a principality or more like a negative life-force that a human may possess. It is such spirit that embraces other bad traits of a person like selfishness and covetousness. It may take its roots from envy and insecurity too, for not having Hard to find items and someone has it. It is such dictator that can kill when the things they desire ownership of are not vested to them. Such is a grim grip of greed.

A greedy person has such obsession to have everything. He wants all things to be his. He aches when he does not have much because he simply cannot have enough. He gratifies his very selfish motives and his means are all self-seeking. He disregards the good of others, stressing why would he care? Sadly, it’s as if he believes he is the single person on earth that deserves those things he hankers for.

And whether a person of greed deserves those possessions he has or not, still the general people will take it on an adverse outlook. Still it is better to gain something that one deserves on a just and meek way. Otherwise, the person should be held uneligile of merit.

For such grim grip of greed is not welcome in a world of harmony.

Why is FB Addictive?.

Why is Facebook addictive? I am counting the reasons.

Long before there was Friendster, I have already gauged that it a user won’t learn to control his urge to use Facebook – since registering means using it – then at least he must set a time limit on how long he would go online while logged to the said social netwroking sites from entirelypets

Because if there would be no discipline, then chances are you would reallt be an addict to it.

I wonder why, because on my point of view, I have not been so addicitive to Friendster before or Facbook now. Yes I use it, but I dont spent hours on it. For in so doing, I am killing my precious time and lingering on stuffs that would not really make me productive, only entertained. But would I find entertainment with it?

If you are one of them, ponder on it than wonder.
Are you a kind of person who visits almost all of your friend’s profiles to see what has been happening to them? Or are you the kind who loves to spend hours posting comments, tagging photos, etc.?

What makes you an addict to FB? If you can still help it, then be determined. It’s not always where your day should revolve around. There are much more ways to be entertained than through FB.

The Homeless’ Daily Survival.

How pathetic it is to see homeless people… even if they can afford an exceptional selmer shop mouthpiece for sale at wwbw

A lot of our folks from different remote provinces tried their luck in this bustling region and fell on the sleazy slums. The other aboriginal inhabitants did the same, only to disembark on the streets as their homes.
Pitiful indeed.

The homeless people survive each day but they don’t actually live. Their lives seem useless even when they own a name. Unfortunate as they are, they live only to survive each day. For food, they exhaust every appalling means to beg – inside the jeepneys with their envelopes, on the streets calling your attention with their palms ready, and even intruding private establishments.

For lodging, they move and move without permanency anywhere possible or if they have a temporary place, they claim it theirs and shamefully stay there even when prohibited.

I wonder how they even keep their personal hygiene. Sadly, this is a facet of the society that our country has neglected to take responsibility of.

Green and Blue Prestige-

There’s something about these two schools that have been rivals all throughout the years. Aside from the obvious fact that their colors are in contrast with one another, it is also very evident that they are big competitors as top universities in the country. La Salle and Ateneo, who do you bet for?

The green and blue rivalry is palpable. As to the quality of education it offers, potential enrollees would decide which between the two of them would they choose as their school. They are only able to do so after very thorough scrutiny, but there is perhaps only a fine line as to which between them is indeed better.

And of course vitamin b17, there goes their varsity teams that compete on the famous UAAP where they always showcase their basketball powers that are both incredible.

But as people who have already heard much about them, they know for sure that both are exceptional in quality education and great athletic spirit plus the prestige that goes with their names.

Fastfood Potato Madness.

Potato is oh-so-yummy when converted to simple yet highly-demanded dishes. We have the all-time famous potato fries, the favorite mashed potato, and the savory hash brown to name a few.

Like chicken claimed to be every Filipino’s favorite in terms of fastfood chain dining, potato menu can be par level with chicken demand. Imagine that crop that with only a few slicing or grinding or whatever, can be a very savory food that our tongue will love. Potatoes are vegetables that are not so pricey yet valuable, for without them, imagine aworld without French fries for one?

Hence growing potatoes is something we should be thankful of as it generates supplies for our favorite potato dishes to gratify our potato madness.

There’s really something that our tongue can find whenever eating potatoes when converted into awesome yet typical recipe. And fastfood chains, Kendra Scott jewelry here, will probably experiment for more potato menus for our taste madness like no other.

What If Your Wife Earns More?

It kills most guys’ ego that they are being dictated what to do – something that is not supposed be that way. But if we trace the reasons why some husbands are the ones submitting rather than their wives, one probable reason is money matter. Sometimes, women earn more than their men do, and this sort of makes some wives think they are authorized to rule over their husbands. This is totally wrong.

It is customary that the men are the main providers even when the women have their own jobs too. But not because they are the providers mean they are the authority. These are two responsibilities innate in their blood. Therefore, not because women earn ore will they dominate a man when it comes to decision-making etc.

Respect is best shown to a partner if you practice doing it the way you both agreed. Wives who earn more should not take advantage of such by being the boss. For always, it should be the men.

Wise Voters only vote Candidates of Virtues

Being wise means you’re foreseeing the future and acting today depending on what you want your future to result to.

Placing people on the position means entrusting the future or at least the next years or so of our country to that person you cast your vote for. If you are wise enough, you would filter only those who can prove their abilities and substantiate their virtues. This may be hard, especially if we are not well-versed yet with a candidate, as in the case of the fresh ones, and difficult too if we have not heard any accomplishment, as in the case of an old candidate who continues to pursue or retain a government post.

Wise voters only vote candidate of virtues and for sure, wise voters have their way of identifying who are these men and women of integrity who will not trade their virtues in exchange of the promise of wealth and position. Wise voters will not waste their single vote for an undeserved politician.

My Resentment to my Simple, Yet Unexecuted Plans

I only have simple dreams, and simple plans – goals which are normally very attainable yet four years after graduation, I am stuck here in a stagnant company with a dormant career – as if no breakthrough has ever happened.

My plans to reach the peak of my dreams are very simple. I aim to finish one at a time yet it seems difficult to start at once.

It’s not really hard enrolling for a masteral degree, is it? It’s not really expensive attending a foreign language class, is it? But well, I need extra money.

Is it also laborious to enter into a business while working? Well I can probably manage but I don’t have the capital.

Is it even impossible to purchase at least one appliance from my mothly salary so I can see some fruits of all these ploy all those years? Apparently, it is. I don’t have savings, you know.

You see, I don’t really dream buying my own car, building my own house, or travelling abroad time after another. My plans are very simple yet due to my family obligations, I cant even attain one. Sadly.

Praying for the Nation.

It is very pleasant to witness Christians in an assembly of prayer for the nation. It is good to learn that Christians unite for the purpose of kneeling down to God in a common prayer that is to bless the nation we all live in.

There are many organizations conducting massive prayer gatherings aimed at raising all our concerns to God in warfare that He will hear it from the sincerest core of our hearts,that are unified in the goal of lifting up similar issues that we know our nation is facing and may still encounter.

Praying for the nation is a very good activity – a crowd of people from all over the country gathered to contribute to the nation’s destiny which is said to be sometimes paralleled to our faith, or reciprocal to how extensive, true, and loud we prayed.

As Christians, it is a must that we have the same heart in prayer for our nation. click here self defense weapons

Thoughts on Love: Incompatibility

They say that in order for two people to have a lasting relationship with fewer arguments, they have to be compatible. They need to have the same interests, same preferences in chosing friends, same hobbies, etc. Or else, the relationship has more chances of ending up into break-ups.

What really happens when someone cannot bear his/her partner’s attitude or tolerate his/her behavior which is exactly contrary to how the other behaves? Will it be the start of deep disputes? IF a partner is not at any inch glad with the activities that his/her partner does, will they even have a common ground to profoundly discover each other and appreciate each other’s whole being?

Incompatibility is an issue that needs to be resolved by partners. Yes some actually has no conflict when dealing with the differences i heir character or hobbies, but maybe they have not realized yet that it is also difficult.

Hiding from your Ex

Have you ever experienced having to hide from your former boyfriend-girlfriend and not having the courage to face him/her?

Well, hiding is difficult especially if you have things in common, like you live in one place or go to the same school or company. It is hard to avoid him/her when you see them in your premises time after time and it is actually not healthy. In a real sense, it’s just like living with no peace.

But, why is it that some people claim that they have already moved on yet they cannot live along the shadows of their exes? Could it be that they feel guilty for what has happened that seeing them will only remind them of the remorse so they would rather not let this happen? Maybe.

Or perhaps the break-up simply hurts that the person more affected would rather not see him/her forever for it would only take his/her memories back to how they were before? Perhaps.

No matter what the reason is, hiding from your ex is not a solution to move on. You will only make it more complicated with yourself.
