Why Retreat?

It gives you the time to focus on you, your goals, desires and what brings you complete satisfacton. It illuminates self care, letting go, and open things up to new possibilities.

“Retreat is an act of moving back or withdrawing”.

Retreat is an act of moving back or withdrawing. Personally,  I consider it as an act of moving backwards to go forward. It is a purposeful act that brings meaning. It provides the opportunity to reflect on life, on our existence, identifying who we are, and where we want to be. In essence, taking stock.

Self-Retreat

A self-retreat is one where you go off by yourself. You take the time to re-discover yourself in light of what you do. It may involve shedding some things that you need to let go of in order to reconnect with yourself and build your self-awareness. You do this through reflection which can lead to self-discovery, self-development, as well as increased self-esteem, and self-love.  Renewal of the self is important.

Ways to Retreat

For years my company organized retreats. We would do it for all employees, departments, or at the managerial level in order to drive the year’s annual goals. It proved to be an exercise that I have valued throughout time.

That said, retreats can be elaborate or quite simple. It can be at a resort, at a conference or success symposium, in a cabin in the woods, or a simple retreat in your own home. At-home-retreats can be risky due to the distraction of everyday life. But if you are disciplined and create that ‘away’ space for the duration of your retreat, it can still be quite useful. Hey, better to do something than nothing.

Just as long as the purpose is being met a retreat can be a transformational experience. It gives you the time to focus on you, your goals, desires and what brings you complete satisfacton. It illuminates self care, letting go, and open things up to new possibilities.

Why not use today to plan your retreat? Once done return here and share your experience. Or if you have been doing retreats throughout time, what has been your most satisfying experience? Do share.

Cheers!

10 Things That Would Build an Effective Relationship

Written by Success Vista‘s Founder, Ibibo Ataisi Justin

 
Relationship is one of the most important factors that determine our success in every aspect of our lives. The quality of your relationship can build or destroy your life.

Having an effective relationship is not something that is done overnight, but through painstakingly applying some set of skills and techniques.

Effective relationship is something that cannot be overemphasized in today’s workplace. No business can thrive in the long term without building quality relationships with its employees, customers and suppliers. Also, it is quality relationship that oils the wheel of friendship, and even marriages.

Our society is totally sick because of strained relationships among people, countries, tribes, races, etc.  For us to improve the quality of our lives, we must also improve the quality of our relationships.

Interestingly, society is defined as a web of relationships, which requires all parties to work and contribute their share in order to achieve a common goal. Having a relationship that is good, where cooperation and respect are manifested, can make society work better. In this way each member works for the good of the whole and towards achieving a common goal. This can only be attained with effective and efficient relationships.

Here are 10 practical tips to improve the quality of our relationships.

  1. Understanding. 

Understanding the other person’s feelings and position creates an effective relationship. The easiest method to understand what is important to another person is to ask them what they want and listen to what they have to say. When the other person realizes this, they feel the importance given to them.

Effective relationships require individuals to openly express their feelings and positions on all matters pertinent on the relationship. Assuming that the other person understands our needs and will give us what we need when we need it, without asking for it, is not a good practice.

  1. Respect. 

Respect is the key to relationship. In order to create a more effective relationship, parties should treat each other with respect. We can show respect just by listening to the other party and by trying sincerely to understand how they function.

You can also show respect to other parties by confirming that they are doing everything they can. Respect is the very foundation for a great relationship. This also means respecting yourself and respecting others.

  1. Trust. 

This is very important for any sustainable relationship. You must earn the trust of others, because any act of suspicion can destroy any relationship overnight. The bottom line here is that your words should be your bond.

  1. Value creation

The quality of your relationship to a large extend would be determined by what you are able to offer. Your intention should be to add value into any relationship you create

  1. Gratitude. 

Always show appreciation to other individual for any little that is done. This makes them to feel important and willing to be committed to such relationship.

  1. Individual differences. 

We must also understand that we are all unique entities and as such, we have our different values and ideology. It is important that we identify these and treat them accordingly.

  1. Clearly define roles. 

Also, it is essential that each individual understand the role they are expected to play in order to sustain the relationship. This is important as it helps to reduce the possibility of conflicts in the future.

  1. Empathy. 

Seeing things from the perspectives of others also makes them feel that you are interested in their well-being and progress. The point here is that you put yourself in the position of others before you make any decision.

  1. Service. 

Relationship is like the game of table tennis. If you don’t serve, you won’t receive any service in return. You must be willing to give the highest quality of service you can render at all times.

  1. Golden rule

Always do unto others as you want them to do unto you. If you give your best to any relationship, you would also attract the best from such relationship.

I Shiver…

How easy it is to be totally wrong about people. But for me, I shiver just thinking how totally wrong I can be about reaching my goal.

I am tired. I am tired of trying very hard to reach my goals. I’m tired of wanting things that seem to move further away the closer I get. Now at times I am even afraid. I am afraid of doing the things that I need to do. I Shiver at the very thought of rolling up my sleeves to get ready to work, to get things done. It is then that I shiver! I shiver! I shiver!

But even as I shiver – I will not give up. Lauren Oliver said she shivers just thinking how easy it is to be totally wrong about people. But for me, I shiver just thinking how totally wrong I can be about reaching my goal.

But I will keep trying. In the midst of my fears, my doubts, my exhaustion; I will not give up. My goals, my dreams and my aspirations are right in front of me. And as I look at it closely… as I dream of it… I am assured that I will face the light at the end of the tunnel. I know one day it will be real. I shiver but I will not stop. I let will achieve.

These thoughts are common among entrepreneurs, career enthusiasts, and goal seekers. Today, find comfort in knowing that your labor will not be in vain. Keep striving even when you are afraid. Reach out for help if you need it but whatever you do, don’t give up.

 

Rain Drops Keep Falling on my Head

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn’t mean my eyes will soon be turnin’ red
Crying’s not for me
‘Cause I’m never gonna stop the rain by complainin’
Because I’m free
Nothing’s worrying me

The lyrics of this song reminds us to Drop worry and fear. Fear of failing. Fear of the past. Fear of the future. Some even fear success.

Today, let’s aim high. Let’s take control and Free Fall. Chances are we’ll remain in control, just like the Ant who never seem to fear things that appear bigger than it is.  Often the fear is just in our mind. Today, let go. Drop the worry. Drop the Fear. As Bob Marley said “every little thing is gonna be alright”.

How I Became a Human Resource Manager

iphone pics 005

I never dreamed of a career in Human Resources. From an early age, I would look to the stars and dream of being involved in healthcare, or the airline industry. Of course these are two very different industries but my passion for people was evident from then. After graduating high school, I got the dream call for an interview as a flight attendant. I am always punctual, but for some strange reason I ended up being 10 minutes late for the interview, and was ‘disqualified’ from that opportunity.

I took it as a sign when I was hired by one of the nation’s big commercial banks. That opened the doors to human resource management for me; or as it was called back then—personnel management. I was exposed to benefits administration, performance management, and more. Being the fast learner that I am—I learned, and learned, and learned.

This boosted me into the next position with a major international pharmaceutical company, that further exposed me to human resource management at the global level. I learnt not only the facets of HR at the local level, but had to interpret laws and practices for different countries that fell under my portfolio of responsibility. In my job I had to travel across countries throughout the Caribbean, and Latin America.

Education

What about education? As I journeyed, I felt led to receive formal training. Armed with a Bachelors in Business Management, I pursued a Masters in Human Resource Management. I also decided to minor in HR Development, while studying Doctorate in Education, Major Organizational Leadership. This then propelled my current role as Coach, and Human Resource Consultant.

As laws, technology and people change, there is no doubt that it is an advantage to become a member of organizations such as the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). This syncs with organizations such as local Human Resource Associations. Personally, I continue to participate in local, and national conferences. These days I conduct personal development Success workshops, backed by my research and subsequent publishing of book on Leaders and Success Strategies.

Success and Challenges Along the Way

Naturally, there have been challenges along the way. My most challenging feat arose during my first encounter with an international merger, between two giant pharmaceutical companies. Embracing two different cultures, employee relations issues, diversity, compensation, and benefits management in different countries was a challenge, to say the least. But as I look back and reflect on the Employer of Choice award, I am pleased. This experience molded me into my love for change management today. This passion has taken me across different industries including healthcare, hospitality, and others to name a few.

Even though there have been ups and downs since then, I have never regretted my decision to enter this profession. Every time I help a client improve their business, it makes me feel totally satisfied. Hearing the frustrations in their voices when they first contact me, and then seeing the satisfaction on their faces when things improve… is exhilarating!

In addition, The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) shared the result of the annual compilation of the most in-demand jobs done by CareerBuilder, and Economic Modeling Specialist International. Not surprising, Human Resource jobs were included among the top 20 positions-yea! The article stated that Human Resource Managers require a college degree and that this career position has grown by over 14,218 since 2010. This confirms that yes, it is a fine time to get into Human Resources.

So if you have the people skills, the spirit of resilience, and other facets mentioned, then go for it! Despite the stresses of the position, the job is totally satisfying….and oh by the way, it pays too. So what are you waiting for? Get started today, and if you’re like me, you’ll have no regrets!
