Maestru este numai acela care este dăruit cu harul de a învăţa pe alţii. Cu adevărat maestru este numai cel care, având el însuşi multă bogăţie sufletească, ştie să dea tot, ştiinţă, pricepere şi suflet, fără intenţii preconcepute şi fără să aştepte nimic în schimb. (Octavian Fodor)

Talent hits a target no one else can hit, genius hits a target no one else can see. (Schopenhauer)
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. (Aristotle)

Despre teamă şi tensiune

Atunci când suntem stresaţi sau tensionaţi sau pur şi simplu, ne aflăm într-o situaţie dificilă, nu funcţionăm la întregul potenţial. Teama îşi pune amprenta mai puternic asupra noastră decât toate resursele de care dispunem şi pe care le-am putea scoate la iveală pentru a le valorifica. Problema care se pune este cum să trezeşti stimulii pozitivi. (Sid Jacobson)

Angajatul la iesirea din recesiune

Pentru cel care îşi planifică propria carieră, mesajul este: înainte de a-ţi forma sau consolida abilităţi pentru un anumit job, asigură-te că el continuă să fie important în contextul economic actual şi că se bazează pe abilităţile pe care le ai în vedere. Iar pentru orice om angrenat în această economie aflată în plină schimbare, mesajul este acesta: diversificarea abilităţilor personale, cu deosebire a celor care pot fi transferate de la o ocupaţie la alta, poate reprezenta un avantaj decisiv. (George Vredeveld este profesor de economie şi directorul Centrului de Educaţie şi Cercetare Economică de la Universitatea din Cincinnati.)

HR Planning - Markov Analysis



Describes the use of Markov Analysis in the Human Resource Planning Process.

For all Human Resource Specialists

Humor and Humanity in the HR Department - Alain de Botton



Alain de Botton, author of The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work, gives a hilarious account of his experience with the HR department at an accounting firm. Although initially skeptical, de Button found sincerity and kindness in company songs and the "24-hour anti-bullying hotline."

-----

Alain de Botton is a British writer and television producer who employs a philosophical and accessible approach to examining a variety of subjects from the abstract--love and happiness--to the material--architecture.

In August 2008, he founded an unconventional new educational establishment in central London called The School of Life, which offers intelligent instruction on how to lead a fulfilled life. De Botton is a frequent contributor to numerous newspapers, journals and magazines and is a member of the Arts Council of England's literature panel. De Botton owns and helps run his own production company, Seneca Productions, which regularly broadcasts television documentaries based on his work.

Though he has published several novels including Essays in Love and Kiss and Tell, he is better known for his non-fiction work such as the best-selling How Proust Can Change Your Life and The Architecture of Happiness. His most recent book, The Pleasures and Sorrows of Work, is an examination of the modern workplace and the role work has played in our lives throughout history. - City Arts and Lectures

Investors in People

Launched in 1991 Investors in People is a business improvement tool administered by Investors in People UK and supported by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).

Investors in People offers a business improvement tool designed to help all kinds of organisations develop performance through their people. It is a tailored assessment process designed to support organisations in planning, implementing and evaluating effective strategies. It is relevant for organisations of all sizes and sectors.

According to Cranfield School of Management, in 2008 there were almost 40,000 organisations currently working with Investors in People. These organisations employ approximately 7.5 million of the UK workforce.

Though UK-based, the Standard has been licensed to a number of other countries.

The Investors in People Standard is part of the fuller Investors in People framework. Investors in People assists organisations to improve business performance and competitiveness through a planned approach to setting and communicating business objectives and developing people to deliver them.

Investors in People has three fundamental principles:

• Plan – developing strategies to improve the performance of the organisation

• Do – implementing these strategies

• Review – evaluating and adjusting these strategies

These three principles breakdown into 10 indicators; each indicator is subdivided into a number of evidence requirements. These detail the criteria organisations are required to meet in order to achieve the Standard. There are 39 evidence requirements in total.

The Investors in People standard covers a variety of business areas including:

• Indicator 1 – Business Strategy

• Indicator 2 – Learning and Development Strategy

• Indicator 3 – People Management Strategy

• Indicator 4 – Leadership and Management Strategy

• Indicator 5 – Management Effectiveness

• Indicator 6 – Recognition and Reward

• Indicator 7 – Involvement and Empowerment

• Indicator 8 – Learning and Development

• Indicator 9 – Performance Measurement

• Indicator 10 – Continuous Improvement

Organisations need to achieve all 39 evidence requirements in order to become recognised.

In 2009, Investors in People launched with a new approach for customers which provides more opportunities for organisations to go beyond The Standard. Organisations can now achieve Bronze, Silver or Gold status by meeting additional evidence requirements from across the broader Investors in People framework.

Including points at The Standard level, organisations that achieve:

• 65 evidence requirements or more will be recognised as Investors in People Bronze,

• 115 evidence requirements or more will be recognised as Investors in People Silver, and

• 165 evidence requirements or more will be recognised as Investors in People Gold

Can Classical Music Make You Smarter? - Glenn Wilson



Dr. Glenn Wilson, visiting professor of psychology at Gresham College, explains the effect of classical music - specifically Mozart - on the brain. Studies from the 1990s claimed Mozart improved test scores, but replicated studies since then have failed.

-----

How does music exert such extraordinary effects on our emotions? To what extent does it depend upon our nature (biological rhythms, instinctive reactions to certain sound patterns) and to what extent experience (e.g. conditioned associations, nostalgia)?

Particular attention is given to the tension-reduction and optimal uncertainty theories of musical enjoyment. Professor Glenn Wilson considers whether there is any truth in the claim that listening to music can increase intelligence in the listener (the so-called 'Mozart Effect'). - Gresham College

Dr. Glenn Daniel Wilson is a psychologist best known for his work on attitude and personality measurement, sexual attraction, deviation and dysfunction, partner compatibility, and psychology applied to performing arts. Dr. Wilson is currently Visiting Professor of Psychology at Gresham College, London. Previously he was Reader in Personality at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College, London, and Adjunct Professor with the University of Nevada, Reno.
