Three Envelopes!

Tej Kohli blog shares a funny story about a CEO of a large organization. 

Morris was recently appointed as the new CEO of a big company. The former CEO who he was replacing met him privately and handed him over three envelopes numbered 1, 2, and 3.


"Open these if you run up against a problem you don't think you can solve," the leaving CEO said.


After his joining, things went along pretty smoothly, but six months later, sales took a dip and Morris was really facing a lot of heat. On reaching his wit's end, he remembered the envelopes. He rushed to his cabin, opened the drawer and took out the envelope # 1. The message read, "Blame your predecessor."


He then called a press conference and skilfully laid the blame on the former CEO. Satisfied with his comments, the press – and Wall Street – took a positive turn, sales began to boost once again and the problem was soon behind him.


About a year later, the company was again going through a slowdown in sales, besides some serious product problems. Having learned from his previous experience, the CEO quickly opened the envelope #2. It read, "Reorganize." He did exactly that and the company rebounded again.


After many consecutive profitable quarters, the company once again entered the rough patch. Morris went to his office, closed the door and opened the third envelope.


The message said, "Prepare three envelopes..."

Six Ways to Avoid Interview Jitters

Interviews can scare even the most seasoned job seekers. If you don't have a lot of experience in job seeking, it's natural to feel mild jitters or even strong fright at the thought of facing a potential employer. Tej Kohli advices that you don't have to let emotions turn that important career break into a horror show. In this article, Tej Kohli offers several tips so as to keep anxiety from ruining your chances of getting the job.


1. Imagine yourself at the interviewer's place


Interviewers are not here to make your life miserable. And that's true! In fact, they look at you as if you are "the one." They need to fill the job with the best person, and if they don't succeed their jobs could be on the line. Just keeping that in perspective can help calm your jitters.


2. Prepare well : How well you prepare determines the 90 percent of success in job interviews. It's always better to do some role-playing with a friend before the interview and anticipating the questions you'll likely face. Tej Kohli enlists some of the most frequently asked interview questions:


* Why are you the best person for the job?

* Tell me about yourself.

* What are your best/worst traits?

* Why do you want to work here?

* What did you learn in school (or at an internship) that prepares you for this job?


Always know in advance what the company does.


3. Plan your day around the interview


Be on time, and keep yourself stress free. Avoid haste by mapping out the directions to the interview location and giving yourself more time than you think you'll need. Keep buffer time for traffic jams, parking snafus, bad weather, road closures or perhaps losing your way. Be sure you budget enough time off from your current job, so you don't feel like you have to run out of the interview if it runs longer than you anticipated. Hiring managers can sometimes keep you waiting for long hours.


4. Avoid stress before the interview


Tej Kohli suggests that after you check in with the receptionist try some relaxation exercises. This could be as simple as closing your eyes, meditating or doing a few deep breathing exercises. However, if your idea of relaxation is kick-boxing or a yoga routine, do those at home. And don't even dare taking a drink or using substances to calm down.


5. Listen, think, and speak


Whether your interview is in person or over the phone, it is important to listen to what the interviewer has to say, and then take some time to think before responding. Always take a few seconds to understand the question, and then think up a quality answer before simply blurting out something less intelligent.


6. Prepare your own questions


So, the interview is almost over and the interviewer asks whether you have any questions about the job or the company. Never reply in "no," tho this. Rather, use this opportunity to solidify the good impression you've made, suggests Tej Kohli. By asking well-thought-out questions, you leave an impression that you are genuinely interested in the company and the job. Wait until the interviewer has finished asking about you and your background before launching into your own questions.


The day after the interview, send a thank you note to the interviewer.

Tej Kohli Explains Six Silly Speech Habits!

 Tej Kohli tripod blog is a place to get tips on job interviews and personality developmen. Read an interesting article about how sloppy speech habits can ruin your chances of getting a job. 

 

Maybe you've a spotless resume and impeccable looks, but if you really want to crack that big interview, dare to think beyond the looks. How good you sound is at times, all that matters. But unfortunately, many people ruin their chances of getting that handsomely paying job due to their careless speech habits.

 

Tej Kohli has discussed six common language mistakes and how to keep them from sabotaging your interview:

  1. Nonwords: Avoid using filler words such as 'um', 'ah', 'you know', 'okay' or like. These words leaves a impression that you are not prepared for the interview and make you sound like a Valley Girl or Boy. If we feel at loss of words, think and then speak taking appropriate pauses and breaths. An occasional 'um' is fine, but don't let it become a prefix of every sentence.


  1. Up-Talk: A rising infection or sing song at the end of every sentence inflicts a tentative impression and leaves the interviewer confused whether your are asking a question or making a definite statement. Always speak with conviction as if you are selling yourself in the interview. Try to bring your intonation down when concluding a statement.


  1. Grammatical Errors : Using incorrect grammar or slangs may raise a question on your education. Don't use expressions like 'ain't', 'she don't', 'me and my friend', and 'so I goes to him'. Always speak in complete sentences and make sure the tenses are correct. The interview should be professional and is the not the place for vernacular expressions and casual language.


  1. Sloppy Speech: Slurring words together or dropping their endings diminishes the clarity of what you want to convey. The best strategy to avoid this is to speak slowly during an interview. List down the commonly mispronounced words, and record them on a tape recorder. Some common mispronunciation include aks for ask, ath-a-lete for athlete, wif for with and dree for three.


  1. Speed Talking: Although a little nervousness during the interview is fine, you don't want your message to fly by like a speeding bird. Its difficult to follow the fast speaking rate, and speed talkers often leave a negative impression. To help this, do some breathing exercises before the interview. Don't rush, listen to the question carefully, and then count to two in your mind before answering. A bout of silence never hurts, infact pausing is an effective communication technique.


  1. Weak Speak: Using wimpy words may modify or dilute your conviction and hence your chances of bagging the job. When you use words like hopefully, perhaps, kind of, I feel and sort of in your conversation, you show lack of confidence. Instead use powerful words like, 'I am confident that ', 'my track record shows', 'I take the position that', 'I recommend, or, 'my goal is'. Use positive words always.

Common Interview Mistake is Also is Easiest To Avoid
Tej Kohli Tripod blog shares another informative article with its readers to help them fair well at the interviews. Read on to know that some of the most common mistakes during interview are also the easiest to avoid. Read the article by Tej Kohli.

How difficult is it to search something on Google? Not at all! According to a survey a little bit of research about your potential employer can go a long way in helping you get the job. The survey revealed that failing to grasp some information about the company you are applying to the most common mistake most job seekers do.

Around 4 in 10 managers participating in the poll said that inadequate knowledge or no knowledge about the company is one of the most prevalent mistakes made by job seekers. The second most common faux pass was not being able to discuss experience and skills and the third one one not prepared to discuss career plans and objectives.

Wrapping up the list of top five mistakes were the lack of eye contact and coming late for interview. But what's more surprising is the fact that these mistakes can be avoided with a little extra preparation and planning,says Tej Kohli. These are not the problems which are related to the applicants' qualification or skills, but are related to the circumstances.

Its always better to know about an organization's history, services, goals and business challenges when going for an interview. When equipped with this information you are likely to leave a better impression on the interviewer. The least you can do is visit the company's website and do other relevant research before meeting the interviewer. Additionally, you may contact people in his or her social network or simply check online social medias for additional insights about the company.

Remember, this research will not only help you impress the interviewer, it will also help you decode whether or not you liked the job?

How we Spend a day at Office?

 

Tej Kohli recently met a friend who told him an interesting story about a Colleaguewho did nothing at the office. Same is the case with our Bosses, Tej Kohli helps you unravel the mystery of what do bosses do in office?

 

Read on to find out...

One of my friends was once in a job, who after spending five months in the office, couldn't exactly find out what a man in his office did. They would attend the meetings together, but he never say or do anything that indicated his professional role.

Never did they worked together on a project, though they exchanged polite greeting in corridors. When he asked his boss about the man's role, he got a confused look and a shrug. He asked many other people, but no one knew what that man with a vague job title spent his time doing.

Frankly, most of us are probably not aware of what other people are doing everyday. We might know what their responsibilities are, but how they spend their office hours is a mystery beyond comprehension. Tej Kohli says perhaps no one is on the receiving end of this suspicion more than our head honchos. Somewhere in the back of our mind we've all thought, “It's me who is doing all the work, but the CEO's bonus is bigger than my entire paycheck.”

Recently, Tej Kohli came across a paper by Harvard Business School related to 'What do CEOs Do??'

the carried out a research on 94 CEOs in Italian companies. They looked over their day to day responsibilities and here's what they found out:

  • CEOs spend 85 percent of their time with other people.

  • CEOs spend 60 percent of their workday in meetings.

  • Phone calls, conference calls and public events combined only comprise 25 percent of a CEO's day.

It implies that CEOs are rarely alone. Perhaps you will understand this if you think about how much strategizing and negotiating goes on among business leaders. This, of course, means the rest of us are doing the work that runs the business that our CEOs are always meeting about.

So, coming back to the question of, "What are you doing with your workday?" Apparently, we are wasting a lot of it, and not necessarily because we're lazy. In fact, we're trying to get things done and getting sidetracked by the small stuff that needs to be crossed off our to-do list.

Recently, a company specializing in business communications needs, looked at how the average worker spends his or her day in a small or midsize business. According to the survey workers spend 50 percent of their office hours on necessary, yet unproductive tasks, including routine communications and filtering incoming information and correspondence.

According to survey, a worker spends:

  • 39 minutes each day duplicating communications via multiple channels (such as email and phone)
  • 33 minutes attempting to schedule meetings
  • 29 minutes dealing with unwanted communications, such as SPAM and unsolicited calls
  • 67 minutes trying to find important information relevant to work
  • 74 minutes trying to contact customers, partners or colleagues

Basing this on an eight-hour shift, you spend 50 percent of your day on the above tasks. Basically, trying to do something but not doing the actual task.

However, here I am not saying this is how an employee spends his typical day, because this this vary from one type of profession to another. But it surely seems to be a common trend for employees, asserts Tej Kohli
