Wees rustig en doe niets

Het hier en nu is de plaats waar je moet zijn. Mindfulness is een brede term om meerdere meditatie regimes te omvatten die gemaakt zijn om aanwezigheid in het hier en nu te vergroten, en is in trek bij de generatie die probeert om te gaan met alle technologie, zonder erdoor te worden afgeleid. De Amerikaanse marine experimenteert met Mind Fitness trainingen om soldaten te helpen ontspannen en hun ‘emotionele intelligentie’, het huidige buzzwoord, te boosten. Bedrijven zoals Nike moedigen medewerkers aan om te zitten en niets te doen, en bieden lessen aan waarin dit geleerd wordt. Arianna Huffington begon eerder dit jaar een mindfulness conferentie, weidde een pagina aan het fenomeen in de huffington post en ontwikkelde een applicatie met een ingebouwde hart sensor. Haar medewerkers zouden meer ontspannen zijn als zij ze daadwerkelijk betaalde. De honger voor bezinning is met name aanwezig diep in het hart van de digitale revolutie. Mede-oprichter van Facebook, Dustin Moskovitz, heeft gesproken over het aanpassen van zijn huidige…

How to fire someone

Laying someone off is probably the hardest thing for a manager – but it is much harder for the employee. For most people, losing the job has a serious impact on their life as it provides the base to pay rent, dinner etc. A lay-off is often a personal tragedy and should always be the last alternative. It is a very sensitive, emotional and touchy issue and a clear timing and agenda are important. Here are the 3 steps of doing it properly and respectfully: Before: Prepare: what are the possible reactions? Tears, anger or apathy? What do you know about the personal circumstances, is a family involved? Be prepared to hear terrible stories – but do not change your opinion. Some people will try to convince you to give them a second try. Make clear that your decision is non-negotiable, that it was hard to take and that you will not change it. Program the meeting very short-hand, never do something like inviting someone…

Keep calm and do nothing

The here and now is the place to be. Mindfulness is a loose term to cover a raft of meditation regimens designed to enhance attentiveness and it has become fashionable with a generation trying to cope with technology, without being consumed by its power to distract. The US Marine Corps is testing Mind Fitness Training to help soldiers relax and boost ‘emotional intelligence’’, the current buzzwords. Companies such as Nike encourage employees to sit and do nothing, and offer classes showing them how to do this. Arianna Huffington, earlier this year, started a mindfulness conference, a page dedicated to the subject on the Huffington Post website and a ‘GPS for the soul’ phone application with a built-in heart sensor. Her employees might be more relaxed if she actually paid them. The hunger for solace is particularly prevalent in the furnace of the digital revolution. Facebook co-founder, Dustin Moskovitz, has spoken  about modelling his current software start-up, Asna, after lessons learned from yoga classes. Padmasree Warrior…
