Designing an internal communication strategy

The Botswana Confederation of Commerce Industry and Manpower (BOCCIM) last week held a two-day workshop for small, medium and large business supervisors, to enhance supervision effectiveness. The 5th Supervisors Forum was held at the Gaborone Sun to help supervisors develop techniques for continuous quality improvement in service delivery and team building. One of the presenters, managing partner of Forest for Trees Holdings and Director of Savoir Innovation, Cormack Antzon, said assertive communication is one of the steps to develop interpersonal communication. “The satisfying way to settle a dispute is to have the ability to express positive and negative ideas and feelings in an open, honest and direct way,” she said.

Successful emotional intelligence for international Students

Antzon said successful emotional intelligence requires effective awareness, control and management of one’s own emotions, and those of other people.

Interpersonal communication strategy supervisors in UK

She advised that when developing interpersonal communication strategy supervisors should be aware that actions speak louder than words; when communicating, verbal impact only constitutes seven percent of what is heard and vocal expression or voice tone constitutes 38 percent, while facial expression constitutes 55 percent of what is heard. The presenter line-up included G4 Security Services Managing Director Audrey Kgosidintsi, HROD Africa Principal Consultant Moses Ngorima, Director of Policy and Planning at Tertiary Education, Margaret Baiketsi, Moses Ngorima and Eddie Bannerman, who all presented different topics in areas of their specialisation.

The other aspect is being able to understand others and their feelings.”

Special International Scholarships for Developing Countries 2011

The UC Davis campus understands the important role that family members play in their students' lives and educational success. The Transfer Family Orientation program runs parallel to the Transfer Student Orientation. Sessions are held separately, with family members coming together at lunch to share information and experiences. This is the first step for students to learn autonomy and develop the skills they'll need to be successful at UC Davis. It is our hope that by sharing these days at Orientation, families will build a partnership with the Davis campus and the ways in which they can support their students in reaching their educational and career objectives.

    In the funeral oration of Pericles, still required reading in the renowned Core Curriculum of Columbia College, the Athenian leader reminds his embattled people that "when a citizen is in any way distinguished, he is preferred to the public service, not as a matter of privilege, but as the reward of merit." Do Columbia's administrators and trustees believe that the students in the college should live by the values they are required to learn?

Authorities say a letter addressed to a faculty member was delivered to the fifth floor of Stevens Hall, which houses the administrative offices of the college of education.

    Interviewing CEO candidates in Uk for Highest Paying jobs

    Reif says that while the other teams were good, the judges said that his realistic business projections and working prototype provided the boost to win. The other members of the winning team, David Spenciner (GSM’09), Jonathan Scherer (GSM’08), and Adam Winston (GSM’08), are MBA students. I think this concept is going to revolutionize the way we deal with the health-care system we have right now,” says Reif, who wants to get the company off the ground soon and is interviewing CEO candidates. “We want to have early cancer diagnosis and treatment.” Reif says that once he has the $32 million in funding needed to launch Essense Medical, he can make his cancer-screening device functional in the health-care industry.

    University’s executive director of residence life

    The halls will include gender-neutral bathrooms, where men and women share bathing facilities. Individual shower stalls will have doors instead of curtains to allow for more privacy, residence life officials said. Access to the locked bathrooms will be limited to residents with key cards.  The mixed-sex rooms will not be available to freshmen, Rutgers officials said. But first-year gay and lesbian students will be given the option on their housing form of requesting a roommate who is supportive of their sexual preference.

    Male and female students in Rutgers University

    More than 100 undergraduates in Demarest Hall, New Gibbons and Rockoff Hall will have the option of selecting a roommate of the opposite sex, campus officials said. The pilot program will allow gay, lesbian and transgender students to choose either male or female roommates. Heterosexual students will also be permitted to live in co-ed rooms with their boyfriends, girlfriends or platonic friends of the opposite sex. The new option — called gender-neutral housing — was created at the request of gay, lesbian and transgender students who objected to Rutgers rules that require undergraduates to choose roommates of the same sex. I’m really glad they did it, although I wish it wouldn’t have taken as long," said Aaron Lee, a Rutgers senior who is a self-described transgender student. "We live in a world where in order to be considered a human being you have to be male or female, and not everyone fits into that kind of binary. It’s important to have spaces where people don’t necessarily have to worry.

    Dynamics of love from University researcher's

    Garcia and other researchers gathered detailed history of the sexual behavior and intimate relationships of 181 young adults along with samples of their DNA. He discovered individuals with certain types of the DRD4 gene were more likely to engage in uncommitted sex and one-night stands. The gene has already been linked to other sensation-seeking behaviors, including gambling and alcohol. The singles study was also headed by Garcia's mentor, Helen Fisher, a biological anthropologist and research professor at Rutgers University. Fisher has written five books and does research on evolution and the future of sex, love, marriage, gender differences in the brain and how personality shapes who you are and who you love. Fisher said Garcia's "cheater's gene" study adds to the body of knowledge about fidelity and infidelity. She also dispels the fear that linking science to love somehow detracts from its magic and intrigue.

    Binghamton University researcher's studies

    Justin Garcia is as intrigued as anyone by the dynamics of what attracts people to each other, both romantically and sexually — and what doesn't. The difference is Garcia is a biologist who studies human attraction and intimacy. He, too, feels love's pull. Whether you are single or in a relationship, all human experience, in every corner of the world and across time, the most consistent drive in human life is the drive for love," Garcia said. That fascination has taken Binghamton University's own "Dr. Love" to conduct research at local strip clubs, a swinger's club in Las Vegas, and the discovery through DNA samples of what's become known as a "cheater's gene." The "cheater's gene" study, released late last year catapulted Garcia into the national spotlight with a round of appearances on CNN, MSNBC and other television shows.

    Bruininks was quick to point out that the study is “incomplete” because it doesn’t factor in the University’s educational operations and the benefit of an educated workforce. More than 10,000 Minnesota companies have been started by University alumni, according to the report, generating an additional $100 billion in revenues that aren’t factored into the University’s total value. Umbach praised the University’s infrastructure and balanced research portfolio, saying that the school is well-positioned for future growth. But he warned that further investments are needed to continue attracting top faculty and students, and declines in state funding could hurt the University’s return on that investment. If the University continued to have major decreases of funding … at some point things would tip over, and the University would lose a lot of its impact,” he said. “By the time that happens, it’s too late.

    University adds $8.6 billion to Uk economy

    The University of Minnesota generates $13.20 for every dollar of state funding it receives, according to a study released Monday that will be another tool for school officials in their continuing battle with the Legislature for increased support. The University’s economic impact on the state totals $8.6 billion annually, according to a study by consulting firm Tripp Umbach, which the University contracted for the research. The money comes from a variety of sources, including the school’s research, inventions, hospitals, taxes and other day-to-day operational spending. Thousands of visitors to the campus generate about $2 billion by spending money at local businesses, staying at hotels and renting cars, said Paul Umbach, whose consulting firm conducted the study. The report will help the University better communicate to the Legislature and the state the value and return on investment the school provides, said University President Bob Bruininks.
