Big egos are big shields for lots of empty space



Consider Humans as Humans and solve problems professionally at work so that you enjoy work, stay happy and let others be happy



The ego is the person's self-esteem or self-importance.  Your ego is your conscious mind, the part of your identity that you consider your "self." If you say someone has "a big ego," then you are saying he is too full of herself/himself. The ego consists of every belief we believe about who we are and what we are it locks our mind and doesn't allow the free flow of ideas, it forces an individual to be inhuman and doesn't permit the person to respect others, their ideas, their temperament. Ego comes once the person creates his own identity in his mind but that's simply a story created, written and executed by the person in their minds.

Even superman will self-introspection to just accept and convert weakness into strengths although this is often utopian example however in the professional career, we have a tendency to do face scenario wherever the ego becomes an obstacle within the professional life and thwarts personal growth.

There is a very thin line between ego and self-respect, which many times people fail to understand the difference between the two. Ego’s at the workplace are nocuous to the organization, it affects teamwork, superior find it difficult in getting the work done.

Most of the time in an organization ego becomes the cause of low productivity, politics, lack of teamwork and communication gap. Organization structure is meant for proper reporting structure and teamwork, few people believe that they are master of all they think everything can be managed by themselves and hence everything should go through them in this process they spoil the organization structure by allowing the people to bypass their superiors which many times leads to an unpleasant environment in the organization.

When we are not in the position to accept our weaknesses, we try to cover up in our ego we must understand Nobody is ideal; all human beings are a blend of strength & weakness, in their personal and professional career. Whenever you come across your weaknesses first accept it and try to conquer it. This ever-gaining knowledge of mindset will not only handiest beautify your abilities but can even broaden your character. Train yourself in such a way that your mind does not control you and your body, it is you who should control your mind and body. Train yourself to be ready for any challenge by keeping yourself upgraded.

Yes please. A balanced approach is a must at the higher levels of profession. It's not easy to change ones own attitude of expecting the perfection from everyone. But the same attitude can be misconstrued as ego by others.

I, Me and Myself

Recent development in our professional society (Industries), I  met a person while I was talking to him informally I came to know that he is working for Industries, so I asked him in which department he is working. I was stunned after I heard this beautiful answer:  I am a production guy, but I have to look for Quality, Marketing oh I said how?  Again a very confident throw by him, since my Quality and Marketing team are not working properly I take care of both the departments of my plants; as per my knowledge the company is more than 150 crs. Turnover with the good team of Marketing and Quality. Now, this was really an alarm for me; he kept me wondering that how can a person work in quality and marketing with the core specialization and experience in production. What would be his output? How is he managing the time? Who is taking care of production when he is out for marketing? How would he be dealing with marketing terms and techniques with no experience in marketing? What sort of rep…

Importance of professional ethics in the productivity of the organization

The economy is in deceleration and jobs are scarce. People try hard and use all the personal influences to get a job. There is a survival trait among all of us, however, this survival trait if acquired by an incompetent person is likely to lead to the toxicity in an organization. The survival trait perse is not negative if the person uses it to upgrade and meet the expectations of the organization will not only add in the productivity of the organization but will also help in individual development. If the survival trait is combined with insecurity perception creates a lot of conflicts and unethical behaviour among the employees. Hence to sustain themselves these employees use a battery of techniques.   One such technique is writing letters against peers, superiors, and organizations irrespective of departments and duties. This kind of behaviour is destruction in the working environment and loss of productivity. One question is why it is so pronounced in India? It is one of the traits …

Communicating Lay-off’s

An employee’s professional day begins with dressing up for the office. The usual routine works in the office get a little uneasy when you get a call from the HR for a meeting.Surely, that would clog up your mind with millions of questions. Also with the news that one of the employees getting fired is in the air, one will definitely experience chills down the spine. We all only tend to see the pressure of employee experience, no one thinks from the HR’s point of view. We also don’t realize that they too experience the similar pressure. The pressure of informing someone that he or she can no longer be a part of the organization is a tough and challenging part of the job. Human Resource is the first person to whom the employee interacts on getting hired into an organization. This creates a type of bonding between them and their hired employees. In this extremely competitive world, determination and dedication are the backbones for a successful career. If an employee’s performance is belo…
