My family gave me a good value system to live up to and my parents gave me the gift of love. It may sound corny but they shown me that never giving up on those you love and care for mean a great deal. That family comes first above all other things and your true friends you can count on one hand. My brother has shown me to be a proud individual and has shown me what to live up to. My children have taught me that great things come in small packages and that I would do anything for them, the power of a mothers love. My best friend shows me strength, and solves a problem with a level head, and no bullshit when he really wants to. My other associates have given me the gift of friendship but some have taught me many lessons on how not to be to willing to trust, and where to let go. Each person who has been or is in my life has given me something, if not their love, friendship or a lesson to live by, I take their knowledge with me on my journey through the path I walk and I keep learning each
Tech Management matters more on
"Management is the organizational process that includes strategic planning, setting objectives, managing resources, deploying the human and financial assets needed to achieve objectives, and measuring results. Management also includes recording and storing facts and information for later use or for others within the organization. Management functions are not limited to managers and supervisors. Every member of the organization has some management and reporting functions as part of their job."A manager's job uniquely describes the functions of management, which are most commonly cited as planning, organizing, leading, and controlling, although some managers' jobs identify additional functions. The process of management is defined by the functions of management, which are distinct from accounting, finance, marketing, and other business functions. " These functions provide a useful way of classifying information about management, and most basic management texts the 1950s

Excellence in Management
A defined contribution plan, on the other hand, does not promise you a specific benefit amount at retirement. Instead, you and/or your employer contribute money to your individual account in the plan. In many cases, you are responsible for choosing how these contributions are invested, and deciding how much to contribute from your paycheck through pretax deductions. Your employer may add to your account, in some cases by matching a certain percentage of your contributions. The value of your account depends on how much is contributed and how well the investments perform. At retirement, you receive the balance in your account, reflecting the contributions, investment gains or losses, and any fees charged against your account. The 401(k) plan is a popular type of defined contribution plan. There are four types of 401(k) plans: traditional 401(k), safe harbor 401(k), SIMPLE 401(k), and automatic enrollment 401(k) plans. The SIMPLE IRA plan, SEP, employee stock ownership plan (ESOP), and .

Team Management
Productive Work Teams Think about all the people that you come into contact with in your work life: colleagues, board members and other volunteers, donors, clients, the general public and so on. With this large network of people connected to your organization, learning how to work well together is vital. In this Section: Developing work teams Building successful work teams and groups Understanding group dynamics Is your team healthy? Developing work teams Teamwork originates with, and builds relationships among, a group of people who share a common interest or purpose. Working in teams allows individuals from different areas (e.g. programs, fund raising, marketing) with different roles (staff, volunteer, client/consumer/customer) and perhaps from different organizations to work together on issues of interest to team members. A team focuses its work on common objectives and finding solutions to shared problems. It uses formal processes such as record keeping, facilitation and schedul
Important career decisions
I remember how much shocked my parents were and how much scared I was when I decided to leave home to attend my college in a different city. But, that was the most important decision I had ever made. Once I left home. I learnt the meaning of Independance and Freedom.At first I had felt somewhat uncomfortable of being away from home and away from the parental guidance. Because for the first time I was all by myself. Then I realised I was Independant. There I learnt to take life's important decisions, alone. My parents were not there to guide me through the right track. Whether it was about taking some course or was about making new friends, I had to make the all the decisions wisely all by myself. Freedom or Independance always comes packaged with Discipline. If you miss Discipline, you miss the whole essence of Freedom. At my college, I was free to do whatever I wanted. There was no one to scold me for not doing my studies or for spending a lot of time with my friends. So I had to dec
My views on India Technical development
On the one hand, the flow of information nowadays is incredibly huge: you can choke on the TV programs, websites, newspapers and books. However, the most of these information flows are "yellow", useless and even worse - destructive. Tajikistan is a small country in Central Asia with a population of 7,000,000 people (2011). Youth in Tajikistan in the 21st century has not enough useful and necessary information for the successful start in the life. After finishing a high school, most young people do not know what they can do. They have no idea what their lives devote to. At the same time the top for the most of the teenagers is to find a job in Russia. Making money in Russia became the main goal in youth’s and adults’ life. Children have no longer an enthusiasm to study at school and students remain at the Universities only "for parents". - How do you think we can motivate young people to perceived and purposeful studying? - How to start their internal "engine" for the acceleration to
Leadership qualities
In one leadership study, qualities such as assertiveness, adaptability, intelligence and conscientiousness were cited as the most important. "Research clearly shows that transformational leaders - leaders who are positive, inspiring, and who empower and develop followers - are better leaders," explains psychologist and leadership expert Ronald E. Riggio. "They are more valued by followers and have higher performing teams." So what can you do embrace these characteristics and become a better leader? Transformational leaders are usually described as enthusiastic, passionate, genuine and energetic. These leaders are not just concerned about helping the group achieve its goals; they also care about helping each member of the group reach his or her full potential. Consider some of the following tips for how to become a better leader and think about ways that you can implement these strategies in your daily life.
Awards and Recognitions
Workforce today is more articulate about their needs. Employees desire the best of everything – competitive salaries, comfortable & aspirational lifestyles, job security, career enhancement options, work-life balance, and so on. Competition for talent is ever increasing and organisations need to have well-defined philosophies and strategies to help them develop innovative ways of tapping intrinsic motivation of employees by engaging their hearts and minds. While many organisations are struggling to make sufficient progress in this direction, there are organisations that have institutionalized robust practices and effective processes in different people practice areas that go a long way in positively impacting employee perception. India’s Best Companies for Rewards and Recognition was conceptualised to recognize companies who are leading the way in the area of Rewards and Recognition for us learn from.

Ensuring Growth
This leadership tips webpage is a general guide to modern ethical progressive leadership. See also the leadership theories article for explanations and summaries of the main leadership theories. Explaining and understanding the nature of good leadership is probably easier than practising it. Good leadership requires deep human qualities, beyond conventional notions of authority. In the modern age good leaders are an enabling force, helping people and organizations to perform and develop, which implies that a sophisticated alignment be achieved - of people's needs, and the aims of the organization. The traditional concept of a leader being the directing chief at the top of a hierachy is nowadays a very incomplete appreciation of what true leadership must be. Effective leadership does not necessarily require great technical or intellectual capacity. These attributes might help, but they are not pivotal. Good leadership in the modern age more importantly requires attitudes and behavi
Current Job description
After completing a thorough job analysis, you should have a list of responsibilities and goals for your position. Here is how to organize this list and write a formal job description: A job description should be a high-level synopsis of the expectations of your role. It need not be all-encompassing or list specific tasks you required of you (that is the function of a ‘work-plan,’ where you translate your job description into a more-detailed list of tasks, projects and measures.) Prioritize your ideas and responsibilities. Group ideas by functional theme if possible. Each theme can then be written as a paragraph (or bullet point) in your job description. List no more than four or five paragraphs of responsibilities. Depending on your position, you may not need a very detailed list of responsibilities. For example, a worker on an assembly line may have just a single paragraph in his job description while an administrative assistant may have a more complex description of duties organized
My advice
Almost immediately after this announcement, several of my readers asked, “Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give to a new leade?” This is a great question, and I would offer seven truths: Your position is a role not your identity. I know a CEO who retired several years ago. On the day after he stepped down, he innocently asked a friend, “If I am not the CEO, then who am I?” Let me tell you, you better have this figured out long before your exit. Your title represents one aspect of your life, not the whole of it. Your position is temporary not permanent. According to numerous studies, the average tenure of a CEO is 5–6 years. Anything beyond that is a bonus. You may think you will last forever. You won’t. There will come a time when you step away or step down. Embrace that fact and plan for it. It will create the sense of urgency and focus you need to succeed. Your position is a privilege not a right. You have likely arrived at this spot through a combination of talent,
