Concept of Workplace Spirituality | MBA Knowledge Base | Translations corner | Scoop.it
Workplace spirituality has recently emerged as a significant aspect of organizations and hence, a significant topic of inquiry in the organizational science.

Abey Francis's curator insight, April 7, 2013 9:32 PM

Workplace spirituality is not about organized practices. It’s not about theology of about one’s spiritual leader. Rather, workplace spirituality is about recognizing that takes place in the context of an organizational community. Organizations that promote a spiritual culture recognize that employees have both a mind and a spirit, seek to find meaning and purpose in their work, and desire to connect with other employees and be part of a community.

 

The concept of spirituality draws on the ethics, values, motivation, wok/life balance, and leadership elements of an organization. Spiritual organizations are concerned with helping employees develop and reach their potentials. They are also concerned with addressing problems created by work life conflicts.

 

What differentiates spiritual organizations from their non spiritual counterparts? Although research is fairly new in this arena, several characteristics tend to be associated with the spiritual organization.

Abey Francis's curator insight, January 22, 2014 9:48 AM

All four elements of emotional intelligence (self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management) are important building blocks  for relating to people and achieving your goals. Whatever stage of your career you are at, working on these elements of emotional intelligence will increase your chances of successfully achieving positive outcomes.

 

The first two of these components are personal. Self awareness is characterised by a deep understanding of one's emotions, strengths and weaknesses, an ability to accurately and honestly self-assess. Self management is about the control and regulation of one's emotions, the ability to stay calm, clear and focused when things do not go as planned, the ability for self motivation and initiative. The second two domains are social, and concern a person's ability to manage relationships with others. Social awareness covers empathy for example, in the ability to consider employees' feelings in the process of making intelligent decisions either on a one-to-one basis or as a group. Relationship management covers the ability to communicate, influence, collaborate and work with colleagues.

Abey Francis's curator insight, February 11, 2013 1:45 AM

In the 1970s Kenneth Thomas and Ralph Kilmann identified five main styles of dealing with conflict that vary in their degrees of cooperativeness and assertiveness. They argued that people typically have a preferred conflict resolution style. However they also noted that different styles were most useful in different situations. They developed the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) which helps you to identify which style you tend towards when conflict arises.

 

This instrument can be used to help resolve issues in an existing conflict situation, where communication may have already broken down.  It enables an impartial party to intervene, offering a safe and productive pathway back to re-building relationships and improving recognition of an individual's personal impact for the future.  It can be used effectively in a one-to-one setting and with groups.

 

The Thomas Kilmann Instrument can also be used to help teams who are already effective to maintain their success.  It does this through building an awareness of the group dynamic and the differing styles of team members, equipping them with knowledge about the most appropriate conflict-handling styles for given situations.

We might not know what a shrift is anymore, but we know we don't want to get a short one. "Shrift" was a word for a confession, something it seems we might want to keep short, or a penance imposed by a priest, something we would definitely want to keep short. But the phrase "short shrift" came from the practice of allowing a little time for the condemned to make a confession before being executed. So in that context, shorter was not better.

Don’t you just hate it when you see a typo in work you’ve just published, posted on a website or sent to a client?

Every writer needs to learn how to proofread. As a professional editor for over 30 years, I have a few
favourite techniques for effective proofreading. Here are some, plus a few ideas I picked up from some other professionals.

1. Plan for proofreading. Set aside a number of hours in your schedule. Proofreading is a step as essential as researching, outlining or drafting. Never send your work to an audience without checking it over. Set aside enough time to allow you to proofread your work more than once.

2. Leave it alone. When you re-read your own work, you often don’t see what you actually wrote — you see what you intended to write. Put the document aside overnight, if you have the time. Leaving some time between writing and proofreading will help you spot the keystrokes you did not intend to make.

3. Post a list over your desk of words you often misspell, and the conventions for the document — whether you’re using Canadian, British or US spelling; acceptable short forms; units of measure; whether you use the Oxford comma or spaces around em dashes, and so on — that could change from one project to the next.

Emotional intelligence is a way of recognizing, understanding, and choosing how does one think, feel, and act. It shapes our interactions with others and our understanding of ourselves. It defines how and what to learn; it allows to set priorities; it determines the majority of daily actions. Because emotional intelligence is so closely tied to the ways people relate to themselves and others. Research suggests it is responsible for as much as 80% of the ―success‖ in peoples lives.

Daniel Goleman’s five domains of emotional intelligence are 1) self-awareness; 2) self-regulation; 3) motivation; 4) empathy; and 5) social skills.


Emotional intelligence plays an integral role in defining character and determining both our individual and group destinies. It involves the ability to monitor one's own and others' emotions, to discriminate among them, and to use the information to guide one's thinking and actions. In short, to embrace the power of emotions intelligently.

Conclusion 

Perhaps we need to stop worrying about asking too much when the market calls for it. There are agencies and subsequently clients out there who value a good translation. They’re willing to compensate you for giving it your all. Agencies and clients tend to get scared if you show up and offer your services at sub-par rates. You don’t really come off as a professional if you’re willing to work for less money than what any non-specialist makes in today’s society.
