Is Your Website Mobile Friendly?

Google has always considered it vital that their users receive the most accurate, relevant results in a timely manner.  In order to achieve this Google constantly changes its algorithms to display the most relevant results.  Users are now using mobile devices more than ever before, therefore it makes perfect sense that Google uses mobile-friendlyness as a ranking signal.  Google has announced that as of April 21, 2015 mobile-friendlyness will be a new part of their algorithm.

4 Gestures That Turn People Off

4 Gestures That Turn People Off | Admirals Watch™ - Insightful and Engaging News | Scoop.it
When you deliver a presentation, your body language is important for one over-riding reason: it creates an instant visual first impression that answers a big question for your audience: "Can I trust this person?"Until now, science has not been able to isolate the specific physical cues that could cause us to not be trusted. But thanks to Dr. David DeSteno, a professor of psychology at Northeastern University, we now know what gestures can undermine the perception of our trustworthiness.Dr. DeSteno devised a study in which participants played a cooperative economic game. Half played face-to-face, and half played over the internet. And those who played face-to-face were videotaped from three camera angles.

How To Master The Art Of Giving Negative Feedback

How To Master The Art Of Giving Negative Feedback | Admirals Watch™ - Insightful and Engaging News | Scoop.it
When you’re a leader, giving feedback, both positive and negative, comes with the territory. But not everyone is comfortable giving it. Sarah Green, a senior associate editor with the Harvard Business Review, recently scoured HBR’s blog for the site’s best advice for how to give negative feedback. Here are her five tips:1. Be direct by avoiding the feedback “sandwich.”Instead of couching criticism with positive feedback (which can dilute the message and sounds insincere), approaching the issue directly and with transparency allows everyone to understand the purpose of the discussion and keep the conversation on track. For example, if a colleague’s presentation style needs improvement, you can approach the conversation by asking if you can provide some feedback. They’ll (most likely) say yes, and will be more open to accepting it.

Focus on providing "constructive" rather than destructive feedback to achieve the best outcome.

5 Signs Your Employees Dislike You

5 Signs Your Employees Dislike You | Admirals Watch™ - Insightful and Engaging News | Scoop.it
In addition to all of your achievements, you're sure that you're a great boss. After all, your leadership skills have helped you climb the ladder of success. But some of the world's top companies succeed in spite of poor leadership, a result of great products or concepts rather than motivated team members.According to entrepreneurial counselor Michelle McQuaid, bad bosses cost businesses $360 billion in lost productivity every year. The stress caused by difficult supervisors can negatively affect an employee's overall health and workplace morale, eventually driving him or her out the door. Since losing one employee costs a business tens of thousands of dollars or more, your business will eventually suffer financially if you can't keep employee loss at a minimum.

Consulting firm PwC recently published its outlook for work in 2022, based on interviews with 500 human resources experts and 10,000 others in the United States and several other countries. You probably won’t be surprised to hear that big companies could end up so powerful and influential they morph into “ministates” that fill the void when government is unable to provide essential services. Companies will also use sensors and other gizmos to monitor employees around the clock. And workers will mostly acquiesce to this digital leash, in exchange for job security, decent pay and important benefits.

Gagan Preet Singh's curator insight, August 28, 2014 2:49 AM

Strong employee are the back bone of the organisations. How your company perform in the market it is totally depend on the team that how much they have experience, how they adopt the new techniques and how long they deal with the same organisation. If company ignore the senior and experienced employee's need then it effects on the work. And you can see market value of that particular company how it perform in the industry. So it is more important that companies should have senior and experienced person for their work.

Uncomfortable Being the Boss? 5 Tips That Will Help

Uncomfortable Being the Boss? 5 Tips That Will Help | Admirals Watch™ - Insightful and Engaging News | Scoop.it
1. Don't pretend you're not really in charge. If the buck stops at your desk, acting like you're the same as everyone else won't work. It's a bit like parents who try to function as their children's friends, rather than as authority figures. It may be more fun in the short run, but will likely lead to bad results in the long run.There are a very few exceptions--one is Morning Star, the tomato processor that has rigorously maintained a non-hierarchical structure since the 1970s. But that takes a lot of forethought, planning, and careful hiring of like-minded individuals. And even so, the company's non-CEO founder must occasionally serve as decider of last resort when employees are unable to resolve their conflicts.

Fixing a Work Relationship Gone Sour

Fixing a Work Relationship Gone Sour | Admirals Watch™ - Insightful and Engaging News | Scoop.it
The good news is that even some of the most strained relationships can be repaired. In fact, a negative relationship turned positive can be a very strong one. “Going through difficult experiences can be the makings of the strongest, most resilient relationships,” says Susan David, a founder of the Harvard/McLean Institute of Coaching and author of the HBR article, “Emotional Agility.” The bad news is that fixing a relationship takes serious effort.“Most people just lower their expectations because it’s easier than dealing with the real issues at hand,” says Brian Uzzi, professor of leadership and organizational change at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management and author of the HBR article, “Make Your Enemies Your Allies.” But, he says, the hard work is often worth it, especially in a work environment where productivity and performance are at stake. Here’s how to transform a work relationship that’s turned sour.
