Understanding Your Happiness in the Workplace

Understanding Your Happiness in the Workplace
When you think of your career prospects and your personal life, you might not be someone who tends to think of your happiness as being something that makes a success story. However, your working life might comprise a high percentage of what you do in any given week and putting your emotional state to one side for that long could have negative consequences on your mental health. There are many ways in which your happiness might be affected in the workplace, and that means that there are potentially many ways for you to go about improving how you feel, if you think that there is room to do so. Mistreatment and Resolution Not everyone is fortunate enough to work in an environment where they are valued as individuals by their employer. To those who do work within an unpleasant or negative space, it can feel as though you’re trapped, with little that you can do about it. There are always HR and similar routes if you feel as though something needs to be done about it, but it might also be that the problem that has arisen is to do with a particular issue or dispute, such as something to do with overtime pay, for example. In these cases, it helps to be sure. Therefore, taking the steps to calculate regular rate of pay can help you to understand your position and if you’re being taken advantage of, potentially leading to the next step of getting legal help involved. The Space Itself You might not even think about how much the physical space that you work in impacts your happiness, but if you’re finding yourself to be miserable most days at work, it could certainly be worth investigating. If you don’t find yourself in a position to do much, it can lead to some despair, but it also might be something that opens a conversation with your co-workers and employer. Therefore, the first step might be to simply recognize the kind of impact that workplace design can have on the mood and productivity of the employees working there. When tied to productivity like this, the move to have the environment changed for the better could appeal to the reasoning of the higher-ups. Your Personal Time If you’re someone who doesn’t particularly enjoy your time spent working, it might cause you some dissatisfaction that it takes up so much of your personal time. If this is the case, it might be time to consider some flexible working options that could potentially change that. If this is a conversation that your current employer is willing to have, it might help you to adjust more comfortably within your current job. However, there’s a chance that they might not be willing to do so, meaning that you would likely be encouraged to look for work elsewhere in order to find a situation that suits you better. This might not be such a bad thing, though, and understanding what makes you happy in a day-to-day way can help you to customize your career to your own...

How Women Entrepreneurs are Viewed by the Society

How Women Entrepreneurs are Viewed by the Society
How Women Entrepreneurs are Viewed by the Society An entrepreneur is one person who has the ability to think out of the box, to cash in on the opportunities, to think big and different, to go for innovative ideas, to take warranted risks and to make a difference amongst the ordinary lot. Modern business world and the society as a whole have understood the importance of women emerging as successful and powerful entrepreneurs which has proven good for the growth of a country’s economy. Challenges of being a woman: The challenges start at the grass root level: being a woman is sufficient enough to create a gender bias and to be looked down. Physically the differences are obvious and the strength that a man is empowered with cannot be overruled, but the inner strength and the power to conquer that a woman is empowered with can never be equaled. Running a household is even more difficult than running a corporate business. All your management principles come under the household umbrella. No tactics or strategy is left unturned for the smooth running of the household. A woman needs no training in areas of strategic planning decision making(comes naturally) developing interpersonal relationship delegating authority decentralization managing leadership motivating others and self motivation crisis management impression management quality of work Women CEO’s add Value to their Companies: Nature has blessed her with all these and many more managerial qualities that are needed to manage an organization effectively and efficiently. Gone are the days when they were treated a step down, now most of the corporates have very efficient women CEO’s and their ability is reflected in terms of productivity and profitability. Moreover a woman adds value to the company as responsibility is her second name and this works out in favor of the organization to gain the trust and confidence of its consumers, suppliers and stake holders. A woman can occupy any post of its highest kind including the presidential or prime ministerial positions. The enthusiasm that a woman entrepreneur exuberates is infectious and induces positive vibes in the organization. Be it negotiations, tackling the union leaders and workers, business travels or bargaining, nothing is a problem. She is more efficient in clinching deals and proves adventurous in concluding new business ventures. Work – Life Balance: A woman has to have a balance between her family, relationships, children and work. That is the biggest ever challenge which she handles with ease. The financial pinch that the recent economy has created has served as an eye opener for men in realizing the fact that a house needs two financial paymasters for running the show. Success Ratio of Women Entrepreneurs: Many few women entrepreneurs emerge out as victors as most of them lack support from their counterparts and lack of financial support from banks, financial institutions may also slacken the pace and hinder their progress. The success ratio has considerably increased when compared to olden days but still many of them lack the nerve to start their own business. Ignorance and lack of self reliance are the major factors hindering the development of female entrepreneurs. I have seen many women who are born in business families with natural business instinct and their added advantage would be the already available infrastructure, platform and guidance to grow and make it to the top. Even circumstances force certain women to go in for self owned business and once they taste the essence of success they never want to look back. The society has a bigger role to play in developing more women entrepreneurs by giving positive support. Women have a better judgement on role analysis and perception which turn them into better role models in any field or...
