Importance of EQ (Emotional intelligence)

An emotional quotient (EQ) or emotional intelligence is the ability to identify, assess, and control the emotions of oneself, others, and groups. 

People with high EQ can :

  • Manage emotions;
  • Monitor emotions;
  • Label them appropriately;
  • Use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior;
  • Use them for positive thinking;
  • Identify, evaluate, control, and express their own emotions;
  • Understand emotional meanings. 

People with high EQ generally achieve more, excel at teamwork and service, and take more initiative. 

From an early age, encouraging qualities like sharing, thinking about others, putting oneself in another person’s shoes, giving space, and the general principles of cooperation can inculcate emotional awareness in children.

EQ is partially determined by how a person relates to others and maintains self-control. Through effective coaching, young adults can also enhance their EQ.

Some strategies for teaching emotional intelligence include offering character education, modeling positive behaviors, encouraging people to think about how others are feeling, and finding ways to be more empathetic toward others.

Many people think EQ is only about being good at interconnecting with other people, which can be, but it starts with your self-perception and levels of self-awareness. The change will only happen when you are aware of your emotions…✍️

A high EQ will get you through life.

Stress Management

Stress is a commonly used word nowadays, from working people to non-working, and from post-graduates to school-going kids.

Now, let us understand why anyone gets stressed. It is a natural reaction to pressure caused by several factors :

उन्हाळ्याची सुट्टी

ह्या उन्हाळ्याच्या सुट्टीत, पालकांनी मुलांच्या EQ (emotional quotient) म्हणजे भावनिक योग्यता वाढवण्यासाठी प्रयत्न केला तर ती त्यांच्या भावी जीवनासाठी योग्य गुंतवणूक होईल.

शाळेमध्ये मुलांच्या IQ (Intelligence Quotient) म्हणजे बौद्धिक योग्यता वाढवण्यासाठी भर दिला जातो , पालक पण आपल्या  मुलांचे मूल्यांकन Marks वरूनच करतात.

पण ही उन्हाळ्याची सुट्टी म्हणजे एक सुवर्ण संधी असते, मुलांचे स्वतःशी नाते घट्ट करण्याची, आपल्या आईवडील यांचयाशी नाते घट्ट करण्याची, आपली सामाजिक बांधिलकी समजून घेण्याची.

पालकांनी त्यांना योग्य रीतीने प्रोत्साहित केले तर मुलांच्या आंतरिक गुणांना चांगलाच वाव मिळतो, त्यामुळे मुलांचा आत्मविश्वास वाढतो, व त्यांचा जीवनाकडे बघायचा दृष्टिकोन सकारात्मक होतो.

हे सगळे साध्य करण्यासाठी पालकांनी आपल्या पाल्यांना होईल तेवढा वेळ देणे गरजेचे आहे . त्यांनी त्यांची आवड लक्षात घेऊन त्यांना योग्य शिबिरात enroll करून, त्यांच्या व्यक्तीमत्व विकासावर अधिक भर दिला पाहिजे.

जास्त TV आणि Mobile मूळे मुलांच्या मनावर, डोळ्यांवर आणि बुद्धी वर विपरीत परिणाम होतो, त्यामुळे शक्यतो पालकांनी स्वतः TV आणि Mobile चा वापर मुलांसमोर टाळावा व जेवढे जास्त शक्य होईल तेवढे मुलांशी गप्पा माराव्यात, त्यांना समजून घेण्याचा प्रयत्न करावा, म्हणजे आपली मुले आपल्या म्हातारपणी आपल्याला वेळ द्यायला शिकतील.

प्रत्येक पालकांची ही जवाबदारी असते की त्यांनी त्यांच्या मुलांना यशस्वी होण्याबरोबर , एक चांगला माणूस बनण्यासाठी प्रोत्साहन दिले पाहिजे आणि पालक हे उन्हाळ्याच्या सुट्टी योग्य प्रकारे साध्य करू शकतात.

सर्व विद्यार्थ्यांना आणि पालकांना ही उन्हाळ्याची सुट्टी आनंदाची जाओ हीच शुभेच्छा…

Staff Training and Development

Training is crucial for human development.

Technically, staff training is a systematic acquisition of attitudes, concepts, knowledge, roles, or skills resulting in improved performance at work.

The need for training for improved productivity has become universally accepted.

  • Training is a systematic development of knowledge, skills, and attitudes required by employees to perform adequately on a given task or job.
  • Training and development of staff enable them to work towards taking the organization to its expected destination.

The effectiveness and success of an organization depend on the people who form and work within the organization. The process of training and development is a continuous one. 

Training and development is a platform to acquire new knowledge and develop further the skills and techniques to function effectively. It is a process of creating organizational conditions that will cause personnel to strive for better performance.

The functions of training are as follows:

  • Increase productivity;
  • Improves the quality of work;
  • Improves skills, knowledge, understanding, and attitude;
  • Enhance the use of tools and machines;
  • Reduces waste, accidents, turnover, lateness, absenteeism, and other overhead costs;
  • Enhance the implementation of new policies ; 
  • Prepares people for achievement;
  • Improves and ensures the survival and growth of the enterprise.

Objectives of Training and Development are:

  • To improve the qualities of the trainee;
  • To increase personnel efficiency, professional growth, and smooth and more effective organization operations.

Organizations are, therefore, encouraged to train and develop their staff to enhance their effectiveness.

As training reduces the work of close supervision, it also improves the drive, initiative, and quality of work of the employees. It assists them in achieving the goals and objectives of the organization.

Thus, for any organization to succeed, training and re-training of all staff with workshops, conferences, and seminars should be vigorously pursued and made compulsory.

जिंदगी एक सफर

जिंदगी एक सफर हैं, जो कभी न कभी रुकेगा ही,
तो क्यों न इस सफर को सुहाना बनाया जाए।

अनेकों लहमे होंगे इस सफर में, कुछ खट्टे कुछ मिटे,
उन्हें अपनाकर क्यो न आगे बड़ा जाए।

सफर में, हर बात मन मुताबिक तो न होगी कभी,
जो हुआ है क्यो न उसे मन से अपनाया जाए।

सभी मुसाफिर है,
सभी को उतरना ही है,
तो क्यो न मुस्कुराते हुए अपनी मंजिल तय की जाए।

कल क्या हो किसने जाना, शायद कल हो ही ना,
तो क्यो न आज को ही यादगार बनाया जाए।

जिंदगी एक सफर हैं, जो कभी न कभी रुकेगा ही,
तो क्यों न इस सफर को सुहाना बनाया जाए।

Door to the Past

Everyone has a past.

There are all kinds of memories, some that we love to archive for a lifetime, while some we try very hard to delete from our life.

Still, human nature is to search and dig out those memories which caused emotional turbulence or disturbance in our life. We tend to recall them again, as we like to keep attached to those thoughts and events which motivate us to overthink.

Many doors lead us to the past. Hence it is advisable to keep doors to the past always locked.

If we keep it open, it leads to a thought rush leading to overthinking. It has an unwanted impact on our bodies and mind. Even if we want to unlock the door to the past, be careful to recall those experiences which can give us a learning experience and leads us to development. It is what we call mind control.

So we must command our minds to recall those memories which give us happiness, hope to live, motivation to succeed, and inspiration for living a happy and prosperous life.
