Since the advent of the digital age, our way of living has certainly changed to a more virtual, and some would contend, impersonal manner. Who’s to say if this “virtuality” has been creating a great divide among people when all that has been done by these new revolutionary, technological breakthroughs throughout the years is to make everything faster and more convenient in almost all the aspects of people’s lives?
Social anthropologies Maya Tribianni-Nadal has explained the impact of virtual reality to people in the last 2 decades, “Decades and decades back, when we want to send a message to someone, we use snail mail and it takes days, weeks, or even months for the person to receive the letter. Imagine how far we have come along today. We just e-mail people now wherever they are and with just one click, the person can read the letter in just a matter of seconds. No more buying of stamps, or heading to the postal office, all you need is a laptop, an internet connection, and Bam! Not only that, people date online to meet their mates. They can have a relationship despite the long distance and even get married afterwards just by constant skyping to get to know the person. No wonder, cross-cultural marriages are now very popular and common. Even the corporate world now rely of video chats when businesses conduct meetings and presentations. So, on a scale of 1 to 10, I say we live in a highly virtual world undeniably, 9 over 10. I say give it some more years and even students won’t need to go to schools for their classes. I think some open universities are doing that now. People even work from home now. Did I leave out anything else? Oh, you can even shop online now. To answer the question if this is good or bad, well, I say, it depends on how you accept the changes of the virtual world. Personally, I think, if you know the limits, the virtual change can be pretty advantageous. You just have to go with the flow and try not to miss out to enjoy all the luxuries that come with it.” Continue reading “Understanding the benefits of Virtual Reality”

They think that they have nothing to worry about besides choosing what expensive designer clothes or monkey suit to wear, what sports car to drive to work and what colour they should use to repaint their palatial mansion sitting on top of Beverly Hills. Little do they know that great leaders and CEOs who are worth their weight in gold have so much more on their plate because they oversee a lot of things from big decisions like laying off hundreds of workers and merging with other companies to minute details like adjusting payrolls and buying promotional corporate gifts to boost the morale of entire teams.
As the old saying goes, heavy is the head that wears the crown because those who are on top of the food chain so to speak are responsible and accountable for the livelihood and welfare of their constituents and underlings. While it is relatively easy to reach the top if you have the right connections and close friends in high places, it is hard to become a well-respected and beloved leader who inspires loyalty and makes everyone around them better in more ways than one. With that said, here are some tried and tested ways on how to become a great and successful leader in the corporate world. With hard work, a little bit of luck and the perseverance to pursue their goals no matter what, even ordinary folks and average people can certainly shoot for the stars and reach their wildest dreams in life.
Give Props Where it is Due
Aside from going to Singapore to buy the perfect corporate gift for the employee of the year, it is important for leaders to motivate their employees and underlings to give their best shot in every little thing that they do each and every day. And the best way to do that is to promote deserving employees to higher positions and give them a salary increase because this will inspire them to go over and beyond the call of duty so that they can slowly climb up the corporate totem pole.
Invest on Personnel Training and Improvement
Aside from hiring people who have years of experience in the respective positions that they fill, good leaders who are worth their salt will invest time, energy and money in training all of their employees to make them more competent, efficient and effective in the long run.
Promote Team Work and Camaraderie
Like gears, cogs, wheels and levers in a well-oiled machine, everyone should work together seamlessly for the greater good of the whole company. With that said, everybody should be on the same page as they work towards their common goals and the best way to do that is to foster close ties and strong relationships that bond people together.
