As we know, a relationship is a mutual understanding bonding between two people, it also can be significant to a company and its customers where the situation is generally known as business relationship. Today all companies or businessmen are setting their minds at developing healthy business relationships in order for their business to prevail and be successful. They look very sharply at hiring top class business relation managers who have the potential to make sure that those business relationships are bonded and sealed in a professional manner, well-maintained and kept in place so that their company develops and grows.

Even though there are many avenues for marking and promoting the company, people still consider the best tool for obtaining business is a good relationship with clients that always come out a winner. Today business is built on trust, loyalty and genuine quality services or goods where good relations with customers are vitally essential. It is a normal trend for customers to be treated on basis of personal acquaintances rather than business contact for the purpose of gaining those bucks. Customers or business relations partners feel appreciated and grateful in receive personal attention from companies that respect them and are more than obliged to build fruitful relationships in return.

When beginning to create a business relationship it is essential that you produce a distinguished first impression indicating to your customers your values and what you have to offer. You should prove to them that you are trustworthy and capable of delivering whatever is going to be promised. Your communication skills should be load and clear where they should be able to understand whatever you’re trying to communicate to them. At the same time you should be a good listener and accept all that they have to say to you with solutions and reasons. Your aim in making a relationship stronger is to have them happy, satisfied and assuring. You need to go out of your way at times and provide them with complete knowledge.

Studies have shown that a good business manager never leaves his existing customers unsatisfied and runs along to find new ones. On the contrary he uses his old customers to attract new business relationships for him to build as he progresses forward. So the more you build your relationship with your business acquaintances the better the power in your hands of delivering the targets that are set for you in the business.…

Lack of Medical and Dental Care Can Hurt Your Business

Lack of Medical and Dental Care Can Hurt Your Business

I have heard people theorize that the reason men tend to die at a younger age than women is because they do not take care of their health. Many men have told me that they do not go to a doctor or dentist unless they are sick or have a horrible toothache.

Because of this, the physicians and dentists do not have an opportunity to do proper assessments or teach preventative measures that will lead to an ongoing healthy condition.

A lack of medical and dental care can hurt your business in a number of ways:

1. You feel poorly longer than necessary – Have you ever had a cold that goes on and on and on. Your head feels full and it is not only difficult to concentrate but also to keep going because you ache all over. Sometimes a problem tooth can leave you hurting or you have eye strain because you need a new prescription lens in your glasses.

It is not always wise to try to persevere. In fact, sometimes you leave an untreated condition so long that it worsens and actually takes longer to recover. When you are ill, you and your business suffer. You are not able to work with the same efficiency and stamina as when you were at full potential.

2. You might miss out on early detection – Often people wait until they are seriously ill before seeing a medical professional. They think that if they just wait long enough, they will get over the problem.

We live in a wonderful world where there are so many tests and procedures that can assess and identify illnesses that can be treated in the very early stages of their development. The longer you wait, however, the more chance you have of allowing the condition to worsen.

3. You might not know about good self-care practices – I remember what life was like before we had simple techniques such as flossing. I know that my mother would have preferred to practice this rather than be subjected to the painful dental surgery she experienced because of gum disease.

Research is constantly uncovering and developing new strategies for self-care. Your medical and dental team will help you to learn about them.

If a solo professional is ill, the business cannot operate. You, as a solo professional, are the business.

It is therefore extremely important that you take care of yourself so that you do not risk your own health or the health. Have regular checkups will assist you to protect your health and detect any problems so that they can be treated in the early stages. That way you will be well on your way to being a healthy person with a healthy business.…

Healthy Employees, Healthy Business – Easy, Affordable Ways to Promote Workplace Wellness

Healthy Employees, Healthy Business - Easy, Affordable Ways to Promote Workplace Wellness

image source

“Healthy Employees, Healthy Business: Easy, Affordable Ways to Promote Workplace Wellness” by Ilona Bray and a team of experts is a good book that may go unnoticed by many businesses. In these difficult economic times for many, starting a wellness program may not be on the forefront of many corporate and business leader’s thoughts. However, as pointed out in the first chapter, “Why You Need a Healthy Workplace,” the incorporation of wellness programs and the encouragement and assistance with keeping employees healthy can significantly increase the bottom line. The statistics in the book claim that most companies have a positive return on the investment of instituting wellness programs. The book claims that only a small minority of companies fail to break even and that’s often because their initial investment of time and money was too low.

The book then goes on with chapters on strategies for a successful wellness program; worksite evaluations and program launches; prevention and early detection to help employees stay well; very basics on healthy eating, nutrition, fitness and exercise; suggestions for lowering stress levels, working without tobacco, helping an addicted worker, reducing obesity, dealing with chronic illnesses, choosing health benefits, and finally drafting workplace policies that promote health.

The book also contains a CD-ROM that includes forms such as Wellness Plan Worksheet, Wellness Program Interest Survey, Treatment Center Evaluation Form, a Food and Exercise Diary among a few others. Additionally, there are the audio MP3 files on Why Create a Wellness Program, Wellness Program Incentives, and Wellness Program – Walking.

Much of the information on health in this book can be found in greater detail in books specifically on the subject, but the short chapters here do provide the basics in a context of creating a wellness program for a work environment. Each chapter was advised by an expert in the field so the advice is sound and accurate.

Like many Nolo books, there are many sidebars and boxes that provide additional resources on topics as well as success stories from business owners. The credentials of the advising experts are also listed at the beginning of each chapter.

Health and fitness are extremely important and I’m a firm believer that preventing disease and keeping oneself fit will not only help people enjoy their lives more, but be happier and more productive workers. Not to mention the lower cost of healthcare for medical problems that are preventable by living a healthier lifestyle. I applaud businesses that take an interest in helping their employees become healthier by implementing wellness programs. I think Bray’s book “Healthy Employees, Healthy Business” can assist many businesses with encouraging employees to be healthier and starting programs to educate and assist them with their efforts.…

Social and Emotional Intelligence the Key for a Healthy Business

Why is self-awareness important?

We need to be aware of what we are feeling in order to be aware of our behavioural responses to those feelings or emotions. Once that is in place we can then take responsibility for our responses and manage that behaviour in order to reduce the impact it has upon others and ultimately ourselves. (This is the essence of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) We need to understand about our own responses to pain, anger, even love and all our other emotions in order to act appropriately towards other people and ourselves.

Social and Emotional Intelligence the Key for a Healthy Business

The truth is that the most successful people in work and in life have the ability to manage themselves and manage their relationships with others.

Social and emotional intelligence encompasses many skill sets, including stress management, resilience, managing conflict productively, powerful influencing skills, catalysing change, teamwork and collaboration, building trust and much more.

Unfortunately, we see it most when it’s not evident – think of the boss who explodes when a deadline is missed, or the worker that isn’t trusted by their colleagues. Their behavioural response to what they are feeling impact on us in just the same way our responses impact on others. These people are limited by their lack of social and emotional skills.

Fortunately it’s never too late to add these essential skills to your personal wellbeing and transformation strategy, and research shows the fastest way to enhance your social and emotional intelligence skills is training and coaching.

There is always a reason for not changing, always something or someone else to blame for the situations we find ourselves in but when we look deeper we might find that it is our own issues that we are coming up against then the stress and frustration becomes immense!

I know from personal experience the benefits that good Coaching and Counselling can bring, having a structured practical action plan to move out of the stress related situation and into a much better place.

I also understand the immense help that being informed and having support has in making life changes, and coming to terms with difficult and painful situations. Learning how to cope with pain, stress and anxiety as well as learning the benefits of self-management, self-awareness and of learning better social skills was a revelation to me, and I thought I was fairly good at all these things from the start!

Getting a health check every now and again can seem like a good idea, identifying any problems before they become serious. Getting your eyes tested regularly can be a real help to keeping your sight healthy but how often do you take time to check out your personal emotional state and how that affects your work and home life relationships?

I would certainly recommend a social and emotional intelligence assessment and personal training or coaching. This could be the thing that transforms a surviving organisation into a thriving organisation!…
