To Find Happiness, Forget About Passion | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

Cartus Presents Its 2012 Trends in Global Relocation Survey

 

Despite a challenging global economy, 57 percent of multinational companies expect to increase the number of employees they transfer this year and next, according to the 2012 Trends in Global Relocation Survey released today by Cartus Corporation.

 

"Our global trends survey uncovered two key issues behind the anticipated increase in corporate relocation activity: a need for companies to support their planned expansion into emerging markets, and a need to fill the void in available local talent in those markets," said Matt Spinolo, executive vice president of Cartus.

 

Companies are changing the way they deploy employees. Not only are firms moving away from traditional, long-term assignments into more alternative, temporary forms, but they are also trimming benefits and somewhat reducing assignment durations.

 

Employees More Likely to Accept a Relocation Assignment for Career Advancement Rather Than Compensation

Four Reasons You Should Care About Emotional Intelligence

Four Reasons You Should Care About Emotional Intelligence | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
In order to run a business in the service industry, you’ll need a wide skill set to attract and satisfy customers.

 

Emotional intellignece (EQ) is a key success factor not only for small businesses but large organizations too.

 

Although I don't think emotional intelligence is a new field in organizational behavior it might be new for small business owners

 

The following are important reasons why your service business should keep emotional intelligence in mind:

 

1. Self Awareness
Emotional intelligence is divided up into four major domains, with self awareness as the first and foremost trait. Self awareness determines an your ability to perceive your emotions and understand how they affect the situation. This is a vital skill for not just service professionals, but for any individual in a business. Self awareness allows you to better address problems and handle complications as they arise, transferring these benefits to your business as well.

 

2. Self Management
Without the ability to control your own emotions, self awareness isn’t very valuable. Therefore, self management is another vital skill of emotional intelligence, which allows you to keep your impulses and emotions under control. This is especially important for service professionals – if you let your emotions get the best of you, you may risk your connection with customers. With the ability to adapt to changing situations and keep your emotions in check, your can maintain their trusted position with current and potential clients or customers.

 

3. Social Awareness
Social awareness allows the individual to perceive the emotions of others, giving them the ability to better empathize and connect with others. This skill is critical in the service industry, where the satisfaction of the customer is everything. Professionals with high emotional intelligence are able to navigate social networks and understand other people’s moods and behaviors. Whether through reading the currents of a conversation or sympathizing with a customer’s needs, professionals are able to use this awareness to suit their business accordingly.

 

4. Relationship Management
This quality is one of the most important factors for any business that relies heavily on customer satisfaction. A service business is different from one selling a product – it often relies on months or years of nurturing a relationship with the customer. In addition, a service business may rely heavily on referrals and recommendations, which depends on the strength of the bond between the client and provider. Relationship management is a key component of emotional intelligence, aiding the individual in their interactions with others. Whether through improved conflict management or the ability to build bonds, relationship management can help service professionals maintain connections with clients.

 

If you feel as though you or your team lacks in emotional intelligence, there is no need to worry – unlike IQ or personality, emotional intelligence is a quality that can be trained and developed. With enough practice, your service-based business can quickly take advantage of the various benefits offered by enhancing your emotional intelligence.

 

Need an assessment of your emotional intelligenc? Take a DISK test.

Facebook changes everyone's listed emails to '@facebook.com'

Facebook changes everyone's listed emails to '@facebook.com' | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Without asking for permission, Facebook has changed users' listed email address to one ending in "@facebook.com."...

 

The changed was discovered Saturday, and has resulted in either users having their @facebook.com address being listed or simply having all of their other addresses be hidden, as happened in my case.

 

The @facebook.com email service was announced in 2010, but it hasn't really gained traction as a replacement to other email service. It makes sense for the social network to want to promote its own service, but the way it's gone about it is sure to upset some people.

 

To change back your email address, go to your profile, click "Update info," scroll down to "Contact Info" and click "Edit." Select with whom you want to share each individual email address and to the right of that choose whether you want your email displayed on your timeline or not.

 

While users can opt out of having their @facebook.com address listed, the troubling part of the change is how Facebook went about implementing it. The social network didn't as much as announce the change was coming or alert users once it happened.

 

Instead, a blogger came across the change over the weekend while checking his profile's contact information.

 

"Facebook silently inserted themselves into the path of formerly-direct unencrypted communications from people who want to email me," said Gervase Markham, the blogger. "In other contexts, this is known as a Man In The Middle (MITM) attack. What on earth do they think they are playing at?"

 

The company contends it announced the change back in April in a note mentioning all users would be getting updated URL and email addresses. However, it makes no mention of the fact that users' listed emails would be changed.

 

"In addition to everyone receiving an address, we’re also rolling out a new setting that gives people the choice to decide which addresses they want to show on their timelines," a spokesman for the company said. "Ever since the launch of timeline, people have had the ability to control what posts they want to show or hide on their own timelines, and today we’re extending that to other information they post, starting with the Facebook address."

Do you think that the number of hours you spend at work is related to well-being , happiness and better health ?

 

I came across an article from us.cnn.com comparing the number of hours spent on working and well-being, putting in parallel the American and European working habits as well as regulations.

 

The conclusion of the article is that Americans are intrinsically workaholics and have much more problems to get a healthy work-life balance than Europeans
