5 Reasons Millennials Aren't Answering Your Phone Call

5 Reasons Millennials Aren't Answering Your Phone Call | Exceptional Transcription & Business Solutions, Inc. | Scoop.it

Texting has overtaken calling as the most popular mobile function across all generations, with Millennial women using SMS three times more often than calling, according to the mobile research agency RealityMine.


Phone calls have been second fiddle to texting since 2007, when Americans sent and received more text messages than phone calls, thanks largely to the launch of the iPhone and to Millennials. The iPhone was texting nirvana for Millennials, because of its virtual keyboard, multitouch interface, predictive text technology, and--the saving grace of the entire Millennial generation--automatic spell-check.

 

With texting being the universal go-to mobile function, why are so many managers still frustrated with Millennials not answering their phones? Let me help put one final nail in the Millennial phone call coffin.

 

The real reason Millennials won't answer your phone call is because it's unproductive. More specifically, a phone call is ...

Help Your Team Manage Stress, Anxiety, and Burnout

Help Your Team Manage Stress, Anxiety, and Burnout | Exceptional Transcription & Business Solutions, Inc. | Scoop.it

It can be tough enough to manage your own stress. But how can you, as a manager, help the members of your team handle their feelings of stress, burnout, or disengagement?

Because work is getting more demanding and complex, and because many of us now work in 24/7 environments, anxiety and burnout are not uncommon. In our high-pressure workplaces, staying productive and engaged can be challenging.

Although it’s unlikely that the pace or intensity of work will change much anytime soon, there’s a growing body of research that suggests certain types of development activities can effectively build the capacity for resilience.

Matthew Kyte's curator insight, March 14, 2016 11:10 AM

As a budding psychologist, and having been a manager myself, it is quite a challenge in helping manage team stress, anxiety and burnout if you are experiencing these yourself.  A psychologist can add value within an organisation by helping managers with tools to build residence within themselves and provide techniques to help staff handle stress.  Many large organisation have service like EAP (employee assist programs) which provide staff confidential sessions with psychologists, usually 4 per year, however I see potentially value in large companies having psychologists as staff to help before a situation becomes a crisis.

Want To Be Respected? Then Stop Using these 50 Phrases

Want To Be Respected? Then Stop Using these 50 Phrases | Exceptional Transcription & Business Solutions, Inc. | Scoop.it

When you're a boss, you sometimes talk a lot.

The problem might be, though, that you talk a lot of gibberish.

This can annoy your staff to the point at which they think you're not worth listening to. Which might just affect your ambitions.

Here, then, is a new survey in which  British employees declared their 50 most annoying phrases that come out of bosses' mouths.

It was commissioned by SPANA, an organization that offers free veterinary care for animals in developing countries.

As we first run down the list of the worst 10, please spend your day monitoring how many of these phrases you use. Then repent.

A New survey asks employees which pieces of business speak they hate most. There are a lot.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, January 15, 2016 8:14 AM

This is surprising, we all use the words, cliches in fact: thinking out of the box, touch base, going forward, heads up, its on my radar, and even game changer! And we think these words are cool! The truth is that these words cosntitute what is called 'gibberish'. It is surprising that using such high sounding terms might annoy staff into thinking that their boss is not worth listening to! Well if a large number of British employees wrote these words and expressions in their list of fifty most annoying phrases used by their bosses, then there must be some truth in this!

Why Attitude Is More Important Than IQ

Why Attitude Is More Important Than IQ | Exceptional Transcription & Business Solutions, Inc. | Scoop.it

When it comes to success, it’s easy to think that people blessed with brains are inevitably going to leave the rest of us in the dust. But new research from Stanford University will change your mind (and your attitude).

 

Psychologist Carol Dweck has spent her entire career studying attitude and performance, and her latest study shows that your attitude is a better predictor of your success than your IQ.

 

Dweck found that people’s core attitudes fall into one of two categories: a fixed mindset or a growth mindset.

Carol's  work on MINDSET is fascinating and offers lots of insights on who to consider for ventures, teams and projects.


"The deciding factor in life is how you handle setbacks and challenges. People with a growth mindset welcome setbacks with open arms."


So consider a mindset where every experience is an experiment you can learn from rather than a personal win or loss.

Bill Brown's curator insight, January 25, 2016 5:28 PM

or some time now it has been recognised that IQ alone is not going to make you successful, whatever your field. Today, even academics have to be more entrepreneurially oriented. And if you are in business - then it goes without saying that the it will not be the meek, but the entrepreneurs who will be the inheritors of the earth!

Keep in mind that "a little better is a little better," says Fay Wolf, author of New Order: A Decluttering Handbook for Creative Folks (And Everyone Else). "Small steps are more likely to stick than trying to do over everything," she says.
