Team building has been around as a corporate training technique for decades, but recently it’s fallen into disuse. Why? Because many of the techniques of team building seem more like play than work, perhaps.

Or because managers decided that the team building they’d already done was enough to make the group cohesive and maximize their productivity.

However, team building is a continuing process. As the military has found in decades of trial and error, when you have units of people playing and competing together, they grow closer, start thinking as a group instead of as individuals, and find it easier to work as complementary parts rather than as units.

Communication improves. And almost like magic, a bunch of people are transformed into a functioning team.

How Team Building Works

Great team building exercises use a variety of techniques to build group cohesion. Communication is an essential part of team building, as are group focus on a single goal that requires strategy to accomplish.

Often, but not always, it helps to have separate teams competing against one another.

One especially effective method is the scavenger hunt. The manager conducting the team building exercise takes into account the individual strengths and weaknesses of each team member and includes challenges that will exploit both of these for each member.

Team members have to work together at times to accomplish certain goals, like using landmarks that different members are familiar with as markers for the hunt. And the reward at the end must be applied equally to all.

Paintball is used by the military to bring units together. This exercise requires not just physical fitness and good aim, but the more important and hard to train skills of strategic thinking, communication, and learning to bond.

While the sport is a little rough and tumble for many offices, it can be a great teambuilder for the right group.

Other great team building exercises can include things like round-robin quiz games, word puzzles, and ordinary sports. That office softball team? It can be fun and also a great team builder.

Including Team Building Into A Meeting

Team building exercises are generally fairly involved and take a considerable amount of time. For this reason, they are inappropriate for most meetings outside of office half-day or full-day retreats.

For these longer meetings, get away from the office so creativity can flow and natural barriers are broken down. Start the meeting with something relaxing and positive, then move into the team building games.

Only after the team builders should you get into serious work. Why? Because fresh from the team builder, your people will work better together and find fresh creative ideas. You’ll notice an immediate result, and you’ll begin cementing those new bonds right away.

When To Use Team Building

Every office with numerous workers who frequently do not interact directly should look into using team builder exercises. However, there are a number of situations that almost require the use of team building.

For instance, in an office where there has been considerable friction or small groups competing in negative rather than positive ways, team building can break down barriers and create rapport where only strife existed before.

This is really excellent if you can do a contest pitting upper management with the people in cubicles, between whom a natural and healthy rivalry already exists in most cases.

Also, in offices with high turnover a regular team building exercise can build bonds that will help slow that turnover rate as well as improve interworking relationships for new and established employees.

In this case, team building exercises when your turnover hits a critical mass of 10-15% new employees can help bring the new people into your current corporate climate.

Corruption-related charges have been brought against Jacob Zuma, the newly-elected leader of the African National Congress (ANC), according to his lawyer. A trial is scheduled to begin on August 14, 2008.

The charges stem from an arms deal with a French company, which is alleged to have involved bribes and fraud. Zuma’s financial adviser at the time, Schabir Shaik, was convicted in 2005 of attempting to solicit a bribe of US$72,500 per year from the arms company on Zuma’s behalf and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Zuma was fired as deputy president in 2005 by South African President Thabo Mbeki due to the scandal.

Two-term ANC leader Mbeki recently lost an ANC leadership contest to Jacob Zuma, who garnered about 60 percent of delegate votes in his win.

Zuma had been charged with corruption in 2005, but the case was dismissed on procedural grounds. Michael Hulley, Zuma’s defence lawyer, indicated that they will strongly contest the new charges in court. Hulley also suggested that the South African government’s National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) and its anti-organised crime division known as The Scorpions, have carried out a smear campaign against Zuma.

“These charges will be vigorously defended, in the context of the belief that the Scorpions (NPA) have acted wrongly and with improper motive calculated to discredit Mr. Zuma and ensure that he play no leadership role in the political future of our country,” said Michael Hulley in a statement.

Given that the ANC has been the governing party in South Africa since the end of apartheid in 1994, it is likely that Jacob Zuma could become the next president after general elections in 2009. Zuma has said, however, that he would resign if he was found guilty by the courts.

Ian Narev, the CEO of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, this morning “unreservedly” apologised to clients who lost money in a scandal involving the bank’s financial planning services arm.

Last week, a Senate enquiry found financial advisers from the Commonwealth Bank had made high-risk investments of clients’ money without the clients’ permission, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars lost. The Senate enquiry called for a Royal Commission into the bank, and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

Mr Narev stated the bank’s performance in providing financial advice was “unacceptable”, and the bank was launching a scheme to compensate clients who lost money due to the planners’ actions.

In a statement Mr Narev said, “Poor advice provided by some of our advisers between 2003 and 2012 caused financial loss and distress and I am truly sorry for that. […] There have been changes in management, structure and culture. We have also invested in new systems, implemented new processes, enhanced adviser supervision and improved training.”

An investigation by Fairfax Media instigated the Senate inquiry into the Commonwealth Bank’s financial planning division and ASIC.

Whistleblower Jeff Morris, who reported the misconduct of the bank to ASIC six years ago, said in an article for The Sydney Morning Herald that neither the bank nor ASIC should be in control of the compensation program.

Choosing Which MLM Opportunity to Join is Simple

Whether you’re a network marketer thinking about a change, or a soon-to-be network marketing specialist, you need to choose between the hundreds of network marketing companies out there.

Most folks select their MLM company for the wrong reasons. Generally because their buddy or family member introduced them to it, and NOT because they did their homework. But does that make it a good choice? Likely not.

By joining a network marketing company, you’re beginning your own business. Yet it’s amazing how few actually stop to work out exactly what it will take to be successful in their new venture.

The Giant Network Marketing Gotcha

Every network marketing company will tell you that theirs is the best. And they are good at making you believe it! Best comp plan, best products, ground floor opportunity, whatever their angle is.

Therefore how does one decide which company when they all sound so amazing?

YouTube Preview Image

You Want To Make Money, Right?

If you’re in network marketing as a spare time interest or merely to humor your pal who got you involved, then it doesn’t matter which company you pick.

But ,But if you want a business that makes cash you need to get a network marketing company where you’ll achieve that goal . This is important. There is not one single best network marketing company for everyone.

Let’s Disqualify The “No’s” First

I am not letting you know not to join any particular company. But I will give you some cautions to consider.

Startups: Often called pre-launch , they sell you on the idea that you ll be in at the top if you act now. It is tempting. But hundreds of new companies pop up every year and the majority fail. So, how special is that pre-launch company? Really, they are unproven, untested and therefore risky. You simply have an enormous chance that all your hard work will go straight down the drain.

Hype Products: Some products just are not credible. Others will be short lived just due to their nature (many technology products fall into this class). What happens to a company when their product is no longer relevant? It probably won t stay in business, and again, your paychecks cease.

Limited Market Products: While not absolutely a no criteria, you might want to study whether a product with a limited market is prudent. For example, a product line solely for females will eliminate half of your potential customers. It’s definitely something to contemplate.

The Key Factor For Selecting Your MLM Company

Ready? The right sponsor. Period.

Nothing else will matter more, or perhaps close.

The right sponsor is not necessarily any person who’s made money. Just because they made money does not mean you will. And, sadly , it’s rarely your cousin, brother or mate who just joined last week and was excited to signup you.

You want someone who knows the best way to teach you to make money. You want a coach and a coach. Few people in network marketing do this! Most sponsors, even people who are earning profits, just parrot the usual talk to their downlines, which is why most network marketers fail.

This can be your most critical choice in starting your business. So do your studies. Find a sponsor who can, and will, coach you in online network marketing techniques and systems, if you want to cultivate a successful downline.

In the end, find a professional mentor and follow their advice!

Don’t Start an Outdoor Kitchen Project Without Reading These Important Tips


Matt Boettger

Tip 1: Do not go cheap on your built-in grill

If you are planning a built-in grill into your outdoor kitchen, make sure you are getting a grill that will last. Since a quality grill is a high ticket item, it is very tempting to conserve your budget by selecting a bargain grill. Getting a less expensive grill is not a bad idea, but opt for a cart model if you are planning to trim your grill budget. If your cart model grill fails, it is easy to find a replacement. With a built-in grill, you might not be able to get replacement parts if the company changes models, discontinues your grill, alters the chassis, or maybe even goes out of business! If you have built the grill into a custom outdoor kitchen flanked with granite or stone, it will be very expensive to modify your cabinet and countertop if your grill needs replacement. Beware, many of the pretty grills you see in big box retailers simply will not last more than a few years. These grills are usually priced accordingly, so there is nothing wrong with buying one, just do not build it into a structure. Researching a good grill is not difficult. Look for reviews on the internet, ask several different outdoor kitchen companies for recommendations, or better yet ask family and friends for their experience with different brands of grills. You will soon discover that some brands you have never heard of often make the best built in grills, while some very poor quality grills carry familiar name brands.

Tip 2: Separate your seating from your grill area

Here is an insider tip. Most outdoor kitchen companies make a majority of their money on grills and other appliances. While there is nothing wrong with a company earning a profit for their product, the natural byproduct of this fact is that outdoor living areas often feature outdoor kitchens that wind up looking like a shrine to a grill. It is true that food is often the center of a backyard party, the actual cooking appliance should not be the center of attention. It is hard to resist the urge to showcase your expensive grill, but ask yourself how many times guests form a semi circle around your oven or stove inside your house. Friends congregate around comfortable seating, around the television, or around where the food and drink are served, not usually where the food is being cooked. If you look at pictures of many barbecue grill islands, you will often see bar seating directly behind the grill. That is the worst seat in the house. Most grills are designed to vent heat and smoke out the back of the grill, exactly where some designers like to build a bar! Consider building your grilling area away from the main “hang out” area. Also, you may not even like grilling. There is no rule that your outdoor living space even has to include a grill!

Tip 3: Shade, shade, and more shade

If it is hot, your guests simply will not want to stay where there is no shade. This does not mean you have to kill your budget with an expensive gazebo. You can get a lot of shade from inexpensive patio umbrellas available at home improvement centers. Plus, umbrellas can usually be repositioned if the sun moves. Plan your seating around existing trees, or plant new trees to cover seating areas that get afternoon sun.

Tip 4: Create sound, movement, and visual interest

Incorporating lighting, water features, fire pits, and music will make your outdoor living area more inviting, particularly for evening events. If you host a party at night, nobody will want to sit around in the quiet dark of night. Guests will feel more comfortable enjoying the sight of lights, the sound of water moving with great music playing in the background. Some creativity in your planning will go a long way without costing you much money. Tiki torches are available for less than $15. Inexpensive portable speakers plugged into your mp3 player can bring the music outdoors. Do it yourself landscape lighting packages easily accent your landscaping and create pleasant ambient light. Even the dancing flames of strategically placed candles can help create the perfect atmosphere without breaking the bank. Whatever you select, do not expect your guests to enjoy a featureless area listening to the crickets chirping.

Tip 5: Consider maintenance

If you watch many of the popular home makeover shows, you have probably seen the team of designers swoop in and transform an ordinary backyard into something suited for the cover of a magazine. Do not get fooled by the wow factor alone. A brand new outdoor living area that looks great for the photo shoot may not hold up to the outdoor elements. On these makeover shows, you will often see an array of draperies, throw-pillows, rugs, furniture, and other decorations that simply are not built for outdoor use. No matter where you live, anything you put outdoors will get dirty and wet. Ask yourself how easily it will be to clean everything you put outside. Or how easy will it be to lug everything in and out of your house every time you want to enjoy your backyard. An easy solution to keeping your outdoor area looking pristine is to plan appropriate storage for your seat cushions and decorations. It will only take you a few minutes to place cushions and other decorations in time for your guests if they are stored nearby. Anything you introduce into your outdoor area that is fabric or has been painted or stained will require regular maintenance. Teak, cypress, and redwood look beautiful, but will require regular maintenance. Do not underestimate the amount of work it takes to clean, sand, and re-stain or paint wood. This can be a big project. Stainless steel is not invincible. It stains LESS than ordinary steel, but can still show its age. A variety of stainless steel cleaners are available, but do not skip the maintenance just because it is ‘stainless’. After all, why do you think retailers have an entire aisle devoted to stainless steel cleaners? Consult a landscape professional with knowledge of your local climate to select low maintenance plants. You want to spend your time enjoying your backyard, not working in it!

Tip 6: Save a ton of money by being your own project manager

Most companies that advertise themselves as turnkey outdoor living experts do not actually do all the work themselves. It is common for one company to subcontract work to an entirely different company. For instance, if you are hiring a landscape company that also builds outdoor kitchens, you can bet that they do not have granite countertop cutting equipment or staff in house. That portion of the project would surely be subcontracted to a third party provider. You can certainly get quality work this way, but it is typical for companies to mark subcontracted portions of the project up between 10 and 30 percent.

There is no “right way” to do an outdoor kitchen. Your living space should reflect your tastes and lifestyle. Be a savvy shopper and spend time researching products on the internet. Your careful planning will not only save you money, but more importantly help you create the outdoor living space of your dreams.

Diabetes is a condition that results from the body s failure to produce adequate amount of insulin which in turn results in increased blood sugar levels. Self monitoring is extremely important if one has to control the disease.

India leads the race when it comes to the most number of people suffering from diabetes with an estimated figure of 51 million suffering from its symptoms. Close on the heels is China where the people affected by increased blood sugar levels hovers around 44 million. The figures are staggering and numbers have been steadily rising over the last 2 decades.

Lifestyle changes and transformations in eating and drinking habits are thought to be the main reasons behind the exponential burst of diabetes. In diabetes, the body fails to produce the desired amount of insulin, a substance through which the muscles and tissues of the body absorb glucose. Due to this, the blood sugar levels in the body rise in turn causing damage to different body parts. In case of severe diabetes, the person often develops gangrene with amputation being the last resort.

Medications can help to reduce the blood sugar levels in the body but this also has an impending danger if the blood sugar levels in the body plummet below the desired levels, the person may faint or suffer from a stroke. Thus it is extremely important that the blood sugar levels always be maintained and so as to achieve this, more than others the person himself should take up the responsibility of self monitoring. Self monitoring can help the person to understand how the body is handling different types of food, exercises, medication, stress and illnesses and take action accordingly. A comprehensive analysis of this data will also help doctor to determine the type of medications suited to your needs.

Testing one s blood glucose levels isn t difficult and can be done at home itself. However you need to buy certain medical equipments These include a blood glucose meter, test strips and a lancing device. In order to start testing, firstly wash your hands with warm water. This will increase the blood flow towards your fingertips. Follow the instructions as given on the lancing device to get the drop of blood and then apply the blood to the test strip as directed. Wait for a few second to view the results (the strip gives the average blood glucose sugar level in the body). Dispose of the strip and lancet thereafter. It is recommended that you take the test once on an empty stomach and 12 hours thereafter to view the results before and after consuming food.

Undertaking this procedure every 4-5 days will help you to understand whether your blood sugar levels are under control. It will also save you much time and effort paying the doctor a visit to check your blood sugar levels.

Girls are commonly more meticulous about the stuff found in their bedroom. Preferred texture is stereotypically soft, and favored color is pink, mint green, light velvet, rose or fuchsia. In terms of space, a girls cabinet needs to be two times larger than the one in the boys room. These are the main deviations found in a girls bedroom furniture.

Cabinets for girls use need to be designed for hanging a wide array of wardrobe such as gowns, Sunday dresses and all other sorts of long party and cultural dresses. Ideally, built-in hangers inside the armoires designed for female members of the human species should be provided.

Floral designs, whether painted or engraved to add to the girl identity of the furniture pieces found in her room. A huge glass mirror integrated in a cabinets door does not mean redundant to the existing mirror in a dresser. Why? It is because the two reflection media have two separate uses. The whole body mirror in the cabinets flap door is typically used in fitting gowns, while the vanity mirror in the dresser is mainly used when applying make-up, dressing up her hair, and mostly, testing between a cute and a lovely smile. Consequently, furniture manufacturers should be made aware that the more mirrors found in a room, the higher probability that a girl lives there.

The girlie wall dcor and curtains need to blend with the dressers paint, the cabinets finishing, the headboards shade, and the design and color of the bed sheet, comforter and pillows. A floral lampshade sitting atop a low table with a creatively curved mermaid foot stand is well placed on the right side of the headboard.

A long hanging cabinet made of all-glass pop-up cover is necessary to keep those expensive Barbie dolls remain in top shape, their gowns and hair dressed in perpetual party-ready get up.

Girls would need low tables to lean their pretty feet while fixing their toenails. This girlie ritual could not be done in front of a dresser of course. A low table with a drawer for a nail cutting and polishing kit is what a girl would love to have. The table must provide for a space beneath to fit a foot spa kit.

A hanging cabinet inside the bathroom should be included in your little girls wish list. She would need to store other girlie stuff than shampoo, hair conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrush and soap. A feminine wash, extra packs of feminine pads, and accessories of hers would not fit in a usual bathroom tray. Of course, designing that hanging closet to have doors made up of mirror-glass is a plus.

Girls bedroom furniture with four poster beds to hold adornments made of silk and fine net cloth usually drawn by illustrators of fairy tale books remains attractive even during these modern times. Victorian art is a normal preference of the female gender. Every little girl would love to sleep in the magic royal couch sent by fairy godmother, and why not.
