How to Handle the Disgruntled Employee Out to Sabotage Your Business


How to Handle the Disgruntled Employee Out to Sabotage Your Business
Anca Bradley

Employees are the beating heart of a company. Business owners who employ a dedicated
staff know that they couldn’t operate without them -- even if computers are quickly replacing
much of the workforce. And these days, it’s even harder to hold onto quality employees.

Job hopping is the new norm among many millennial workers.
The median number of years a person stays with his or her current employer is 4.6 years –
- a far cry from the era of decades-long loyalty to a single company. 
To combat this practice, it has become more popular for companies to offer huge perks, 
and there is even backlash if a company is reported to be too hard on its employees.
Case in point: the New York Times article exposing the purported treatment
of Amazon employees.

Types of sabotage -- and how to combat it
Over half of all Americans are not satisfied with their job. Some employees are so unsatisfied
with their jobs that they become disgruntled, and that can lead to a certain type of
employee sabotage. Employees that are angry with management
or procedures can begin to slack in their efforts, resulting in sub-par service to customers.
They can also intentionally disrupt the technology the company uses. 
Other employees become saboteurs as spies for other companies;
they have been head hunted by a competitor and are gathering information
for that company’s benefit. This can be in violation of an employee’s contract, 
of course, but weeding out who has leaked what can be difficult.
Regardless of the type of employee saboteur,
some of the most damaging sabotage comes from employees.

1. Badmouthing the company online: 
According to a study from Weber Shandwick, about a third of executives know
or admit to knowing of a fellow employee who badmouthed his or her company online. 
This type of sabotage is sometimes unintentional, as social media has made it all too easy
for company employees to broadcast their opinions. However, some of it is intentional:
Employees sometimes film themselves behaving badly at work, much of which takes place
at fast food restaurants where the average employee age is low. These videos often feature employees tampering with food, which severely hurts a brand’s image.
With social media playing so big a part in our everyday lives, many companies use tools
to monitor their reputation and examine search results, such as Google Alerts
or the Fruition Online Reputation Manager.
In addition, many have instituted social media policies to prevent their employees
from tarnishing the brand’s reputation. Social media policies must not violate
the National Labor Relations Act but can include guidelines for appropriate online behavior
as a representative of the company. An employee that has violated the social media policy 
may be reprimanded, and a meeting should be scheduled to talk in person.
The employee may need to attend a workshop on the social media policy
to ensure he or she understands what is appropriate and what is not.
For video footage, however, employees must often be terminated.

2. Tampering with the system: 
In 1996, newly-fired Omega Engineering Corp. employee Timothy Lloyd set up a digital bomb 
that deleted all of the company’s programs and cost the company $10 million in sales
and contracts. It is one of many horror stories about resentful IT employees
that wreak havoc on computer systems as punishment.
According to Insider Threat: Protecting the Enterprise from Sabotage, Spying and Theft,
three problems existed in the case of Lloyd:
1) He was the only person in charge of maintaining backup information for the programs;
2) Lloyd refused to train new employees;
and 3) The out-processing of Lloyd was improperly handled.
Prevent this from occurring by implementing the two-person rule,
in which no one person is responsible for crucial software, hardware or other systems.
Also, deal with angry employees immediately and provide a thorough out-processing
in which all access to systems is revoked.

3. Theft of intellectual property: 
A Symantec study in 2013 showed that half of employees who left or lost their jobs that year
kept confidential corporate data. Furthermore, 40 percent planned to use it in their new job. 
It’s a disturbing figure, and one that is perhaps not entirely unavoidable,
as employees learn their company’s procedures and carry it over to their next position.
Enforce non-disclosure agreements and / or non-compete clauses in employee contracts,
and restrict access to sensitive data to only those employees who need it.
If a new hire offers information about another company, resist the temptation.
It sets a bad example and sets forth a corporate culture of hypocrisy.

The best prevention
It’s important to first hire the right people.
This can involve a lengthier hiring process, but a company with employees that are happy
and dedicated to their jobs is less likely to become a breeding ground for saboteurs.
Disgruntled employees should be dealt with immediately.
If they must be let go, proper exit interviews are a must.
However, the best defence against sabotage is to first prevent it.
Treat your employees well, and create a corporate culture in which every voice counts.

5 Ways to Strengthen Your Inner Drive

Marigold.

5 Ways to Strengthen Your Inner Drive
Need a boost to finish a project or push yourself forward? Try some of these tips.
Adam Toren

It’s normal to need a bit of a boost after you’ve been working on something for a while.
External motivators like money and praise can only go so far -- they’ll kick start you
at the beginning of your journey, but they won’t carry you to the finish line.
You’ll need a strong inner drive when the world throws obstacles your way.
These are my five favorite ways to strengthen my inner drive when I need some self-motivation.

Journal regularly.
You’ll have to work to create a habit of this one, but it’s worth it.
Journaling isn’t just a good way to document your journey; it’s also a way for you to mind dump 
all of your crazy thoughts and feelings on paper so you can focus on the stuff that really matters. You can write down your goals in your journal, list things you’re grateful for 
or record what you’ve done throughout the week. Had a bad work day? Vent about it –
- your journal won’t judge. Did something inspire you? Write it down to save for later!
Once you’ve journaled for a while, you’ll find you have a clearer head,
and you can flip back through the pages (or Word documents) to reminisce later on.

Be involved in your community.
Whether it’s personal or professional, being a part of a community is a great way to strengthen your inner drive. A group of like-minded people will have your back when your motivation
begins to slip. A supportive community will also pump you up and get you excited to work,
not just help you grudgingly push through your to-do lists. Networking events within your industry, co-working spaces and groups or even an online business forum can be a fantastic help
if you need some work-related motivation. When you want to work on the personal end
of your inner drive, local meetups, mentors and community centers are a great place to start. 

Educate others.
Taking the time to educate people has a handful of personal benefits.
Sometimes you don’t realize exactly how much you know until you have to teach it
to someone else, which is a huge confidence boost. When you educate others,
whether it’s a single person or a packed workshop, you’re acknowledging that
you’re successful enough to be considered a reliable source of wisdom in that area.
People will come to you when they have a question on your favorite subject,
and that’s motivation enough to brush up on your skills and keep working toward your goals.
It’s reassuring to know that you’ve gotten far enough to teach others to succeed as you have,
but it’s also a reminder to push yourself a little harder to maintain that pseudo-expert status.

Visualize success.
What will it look like to reach your goals? Will you be able to afford a membership
at a cool co-working space? Will you finally be able to take a vacation?
Look past the material rewards and focus on the personal and social. Will you have more family time each week? Will you be able to speak at next year’s biggest industry conference?
For some people, envisioning success is enough to motivate them to push toward their goals.
For others, it helps to make those conceptions concrete by creating a vision board.
You can do this using a corkboard, a few pages in your notebook, or a Pinterest board.
Just find pictures that capture your idea of success -- whether they’re Google images
of a beach, photos of your family, or a clip-art podium -- and pin them to your board.
If you keep your vision board in a place you’ll always see it, you’ll have a constant reminder of why you should keep pushing toward success, even when things get rocky.

Practice optimism.
“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.”
You’ve probably seen this quote by Henry Ford over a hundred times, but it holds true:
Your attitude makes up most of your ability to reach a goal. I like to maintain a positive attitude
by practicing optimism throughout the day. Instead of thinking I’m bad at something,
I say it’s something I’m working on; rather than focusing on how much I dislike a particular task,
I look forward to something else that excites me.
Of course, optimism alone won’t lead to success -- you still have to gather resources
and put in the effort -- but it’ll help you immensely in getting there.
A strong inner drive will keep you moving when you feel yourself starting to lose steam.
How do you motivate yourself from within?

11 Practical Ways To Stop Procrastination


11 Practical Ways To Stop Procrastination
Celestine Chua

You have a deadline looming.
However, instead of doing your work, you are fiddling with miscellaneous things
like checking email, social media, watching videos, surfing blogs and forums.
You know you should be working, but you just don’t feel like doing anything.
We are all familiar with the procrastination phenomenon. When we procrastinate, 
we squander away our free time and put off important tasks we should be doing until till it’s too late. And when it is indeed too late, we panic and wish we got started earlier.
The chronic procrastinators I know have spent years of their life looped in this cycle.
Delaying, putting off things, slacking, hiding from work, facing work only when it’s unavoidable, then repeating this loop all over again.
It’s a bad habit that eats us away and prevents us from achieving greater results in life.

Don’t let procrastination take over your life.
Here, I will share my personal steps which I use to overcome procrastination with great success.

These 11 steps will definitely apply to you too:
1 Break your work into little steps.
Part of the reason why we procrastinate is because subconsciously, we find the work
too overwhelming for us. Break it down into little parts, then focus on one part at the time.
If you still procrastinate on the task after breaking it down, then break it down even further.
Soon, your task will be so simple that you will be thinking “gee, this is so simple
that I might as well just do it now!”
For example, I’m currently writing a new book (on How to achieve anything in life).
Book writing at its full scale is an enormous project and can be overwhelming.
However, when I break it down into phases such as – (1) Research (2) Deciding the topic
(3) Creating the outline (4) Drafting the content (5) Writing Chapters #1 to #10, (6) Revision 
(7) etc, suddenly it seems very manageable. What I do then is to focus on the immediate phase
and get it done to my best ability, without thinking about the other phases.
When it’s done, I move on to the next.

2 Change your environment.
Different environments have different impact on our productivity. 
Look at your work desk and your room. 
Do they make you want to work or do they make you want to snuggle and sleep?
If it’s the latter, you should look into changing your workspace. One thing to note is that
an environment that makes us feel inspired before may lose its effect after a period of time. 
If that’s the case, then it’s time to change things around. Refer to Steps #2 and #3 of 13 Strategies To Jumpstart Your Productivity, 
which talks about revamping your environment and workspace.

3 Create a detailed timeline with specific deadlines.
Having just 1 deadline for your work is like an invitation to procrastinate.
That’s because we get the impression that we have time and keep pushing everything back,
until it’s too late. Break down your project (see tip #1), then create an overall timeline with specific deadlines for each small task. This way, you know you have to finish each task by a certain date. Your timelines must be robust, too – i.e. if you don’t finish this by today, it’s going to jeopardize everything else you have planned after that. This way it creates the urgency to act.
My goals are broken down into monthly, weekly, right down to the daily task lists, and the list
is a call to action that I must accomplish this by the specified date, else my goals will be put off.

3 Eliminate your procrastination pit-stops.
If you are procrastinating a little too much, maybe that’s because you make it easy
to procrastinate. Identify your browser bookmarks that take up a lot of your time
and shift them into a separate folder that is less accessible.
Disable the automatic notification option in your email client.
Get rid of the distractions around you. I know some people will go out of the way
and delete/deactivate their facebook accounts.
I think it’s a little drastic/extreme as addressing procrastination is more about being conscious
of our actions than counteracting via self-binding methods,
but if you feel that’s what’s needed, go for it.

4 Hang out with people who inspire you to take action. 
I’m pretty sure if you spend just 10 minutes talking to Steve Jobs or Bill Gates,
you’ll be more inspired to act than if you spent the 10 minutes doing nothing.
The people we are with influence our behaviors. Of course spending time with Steve Jobs/
Bill Gates every day is probably not a feasible method, but the principle applies.
Identify the people/friends/colleagues who trigger you – most likely the go-getters a
nd hard workers – and hang out with them more often. Soon you will inculcate their drive and spirit too. As a personal development blogger, I “hang out” with inspiring personal development experts by reading their blogs and corresponding with them regularly via email/social media.
It’s communication via new media and it works all the same.

5 Get a buddy. 
Having a companion makes the whole process much more fun. Ideally, your buddy should be someone who has his/her own set of goals. Both of you will hold each other accountable
to your goals and plans. While it’s not necessary for both of you to have the same goals,
it’ll be even better if that’s the case, so you can learn from each other. I have a good friend
whom I talk to regularly, and we always ask each other about our goals and progress
in achieving those goals. Needless to say, it spurs us to keep taking action.

6 Tell others about your goals. 
This serves the same function as #6, on a larger scale. Tell all your friends, colleagues, acquaintances and family about your projects. Now whenever you see them, they are bound to ask you about your status on those projects. For example, sometimes I announce my projects
on The Personal Excellence Blog, Twitter and Facebook, and my readers will ask me about them
on an ongoing basis. It’s a great way to keep myself accountable to my plans.

7 Seek out someone who has already achieved the outcome.
What is it you want to accomplish here, and who are the people who have accomplished
this already? Go seek them out and connect with them. Seeing living proof
that your goals are very well achievable if you take action is one of the best triggers for action.

8 Re-clarify your goals.
If you have been procrastinating for an extended period of time, it might reflect a misalignment between what you want and what you are currently doing. Often times, we outgrow our goals
as we discover more about ourselves, but we don’t change our goals to reflect that.
Get away from your work (a short vacation will be good, else just a weekend break will do too)
and take some time to regroup yourself. What exactly do you want to achieve?
What should you do to get there? What are the steps to take?
Does your current work align with that? If not, what can you do about it?

9 Stop over-complicating things.
Are you waiting for a perfect time to do this? That maybe now is not the best time
because of X, Y, Z reasons? Ditch that thought because there’s never a perfect time.
If you keep waiting for one, you are never going to accomplish anything. 
Perfectionism is one of the biggest reasons for procrastination. 
Read more about why perfectionist tendencies can be a bane than a boon: 
Why Being A Perfectionist May Not Be So Perfect.

10 Get a grip and just do it.
At the end, it boils down to taking action. You can do all the strategizing,
planning and hypothesizing, but if you don’t take action, nothing’s going to happen.
Occasionally, I get readers and clients who keep complaining about their situations
but they still refuse to take action at the end of the day.

11 Reality check:
I have never heard anyone procrastinate their way to success before
and I doubt it’s going to change in the near future.  Whatever it is you are procrastinating on,
if you want to get it done, you need to get a grip on yourself and do it.

Which tips work best for you? Do you have your own personal tip to overcome procrastination? Please share with everyone in the comments section :)

A Structured Day Can Keep Wasted Time at Bay

Poppy.

A Structured Day Can Keep Wasted Time at Bay
Adam Toren

Americans may as well start giving flowers to their computers,
buying their business phones diamond encrusted cases a
nd taking their briefcases on expensive vacations -- our nation is having a love affair with work.
For most entrepreneurs, this is not news. In fact, ABC News reports that Americans
work more than anyone in the industrialized world.
We work longer days, take less time off and retire later in life.
But, is love really the basis of this affair? The answer is usually no.
It's not love, but a drive for success that leaves us frequenting the office like drunk college kids frequent a Taco Bell. However, beyond the insatiable desire to win,
it's also structure -- or more accurately, lack of structure –
- that causes many to spend 20 hours on things they could actually get done in five.
Misuse of time is prolific and can envelope both personal and work-related activities.
Too frequent checking of email, an inability to delegate tasks, excessive meetings
and the failure to make a plan all add up to "work" being more aptly titled "waste."
It doesn't have to be this way.
Most of you are probably familiar with Tim Ferriss (of Four Hour Work Week fame)
and his approach to success.
Tired of working 14-hour days, Ferriss came up with a system to work less and live more.
The goal of Ferriss' book may be to communicate how people can work less,
but let's face it -- many people don't want to work less. I don't want to work less.
I like my work. However, I do want to be as effective as possible with my time.
Doing so will help me capitalize on opportunities and find greater fulfillment in those opportunities.
Scott Dinsmore, founder of Live Your Legend, follows a similar train of thought.
 His core message isn't about working less; it's about doing what you love. Sounds great, right?
And it is, but as Dinsmore clearly points out, it isn't easy.
In order to do what you love, you have to use your time to maximum effect,
and that starts with a process. It starts with structure and planning.
Dinsmore's approach involves eight steps (normally concentrated to five) that are executed weekly:

*Carve out some time to plan your week before it begins
*Mentally focus on your long-term goals
*Celebrate your successes from the week before
*Identify lessons learned in the previous week
*Take note of things that were planned that didn't occur and determine why
*Call out the most important goals for the current week
*Schedule everything -- yes, everything -- formally on a calendar
*Schedule everything else, including the planning itself
While Ferriss may reject the use of some technological tools,
and Dinsmore may evangelize the use of similar tools, the common denominator is
that they both promote a structured methodology to achieving goals.
No single approach is going to work for everyone, but the correlation between the adoption
of a structured approach to your workday and success can't be ignored. The key is to take the ideas that resonate best with you and adopt them. If you can't swallow an entire method immediately, then begin one step at a time. Start with a weekly planning session, then layer in maximizing
the use of virtual assistants. In a month's time, commit to spending 10 minutes a week
reflecting on the successes (and missed opportunities) of the past week.
Before you know it, you'll have an approach to addressing the work week.
Underpinning any methodology for addressing the opportunities in front of you are consistency and flexibility. Helmuth von Moltke, the chief of staff for the Prussian army in the latter half
of the 19th century, noted that "no battle plan survives contact with the enemy."
Events will inevitably conspire to foil the best of plans.
This doesn't obviate the need for structure, rather, it reinforces it.
As Dwight D. Eisenhower sagely noted, "Plans are useless, but planning is indispensable."

Website Design Elements to Enhance Brand Credibility

Vetch.

Website Design Elements to Enhance Brand Credibility
jaz 

t is a fact that users, while they are surfing a website for the very first time, like their online experience. If this does not happen, they are not likely to come back to the site to pick up items or for further research. Thus, it is imperative that the website design of a company is very appealing and engaging and makes the surfers remember their time on the site with positivity. For ensuring a good connect with users, try to keep the following tips in mind:
1). The visual element, of how all the website data is presented to the surfer, is very important. Hence, take care that the font size is not too small while you present your points to the users. This parameter becomes all the more important when you are doing your search on small devices such as the iPhone where you need bigger sized characters to be able to read properly. Also, ensure that there are about 13 words per line, no more or less.
2). Avoid having too much reading material which runs into several pages in your descriptions. Intersperse it with interesting visuals to give a break to the written word. Also, the words you use should be crisp, to-the-point and clearly defining what it is that you wish to say. Do not use jumbled jargon which will confuse the surfer. In addition, sentences should not be long winded or very lengthy or the reader will find it difficult to understand it.
3). Try to incorporate a call-to-action which takes the reader onto another section of the page. This will give a momentary break to the surfer and will also keep their interest alive. Give the user an option to get more details by having a ‘read more’ type of message. Then the choice is left to the surfer if he or she would like more material on the subject or not.
4). With social media playing such a major role in all advertising, it is very essential to place your social media signals properly and align them in the correct place. This should ideally be at the beginning of your description, or at its fag end. It should be highlighted properly so that one is sure that the customers can have a good look at it and can share the material with their online friends and acquaintances. Also, make an effort to get a larger number of potential customers leave their e-mail addresses for your contact with them later on.
5). Try to have some interesting diversions in your website. Make it more user-friendly by having some pop-ups with newsworthy tidbits about the products or services which you are giving out information on. The user should be given an option about whether he or she would like to explore the extra information or not. It should not be thrust on them as material which they perforce have to go through or else they may just log out of the website and not come back to it even later.

How To Train Your Mind To Be Positive (using the 4 P's)

Tufted vetch.



In today's training video I'm going to show you how to train your mind to be positive!
The quality of your personal or professional life is largely determined by the quality
of the emotional states you live in day to day -- states like love, anger, happiness,
hopeless, fear and confidence.
There are a few things that affect the quality of your life quicker than developing a positive attitude and training your mind to be positive. 
The challenge is "positive attitude" seems a bit soft, wooly, fluffy and easy to dismiss. 
In the real world (especially the corporate world) "attitude" rarely carries the same weight as words like "skill" and "knowledge" and "work ethic."
Researchers (people much cleverer than me!) are proving otherwise. Learning how your mind works and how to incorporate positive thoughts and emotions can help improve many areas, including health, work, family and social relationships.
If emotions you are experiencing in any area of your life are make you miserable,
you can get in control of them. Your thinking causes you to feel certain emotions,
and your thinking is something you can control.
What you can't control are the setbacks and knock-backs life brings.
Controlling your emotions simply means that you will be able to deal with them better
because your emotions will not make the matters worse.
Being able to train your mind to be positive means that you are in control.
You are in control of how effectively you function and more importantly,
how you feel, regardless of the events around you.
Operating at your ultimate mindset will having you taking your life to the next level.
Your creative ideas will multiply.
Your abilities to achieve will multiply. Your communication with the world will multiply.
Your relationships will multiply. Everything you do, you will do that much better.
Dedicate training your mind to be positive by the day using the 4 P's (explained in the video).
It will drive you like nothing else can. Knowing that you can elevate your emotional state
at anytime is a powerful feeling. It will empower you like nothing else can.
Plus (and it's a big plus) focused positive thinking, over time, will influence your subconscious
so accessing a positive state becomes automatic.

What could be better than that!!!
Enjoy today's training.

The 7 Key Mindset Changes for Shifting from Passive Idleness to Active Readiness

Stopping power.

The 7 Key Mindset Changes for Shifting from Passive Idleness to Active Readiness 
Eric Ravenscraft

Everyone’s heard the old adage, practice makes perfect. Practice isn’t just for building skills, though. It’s also for maintaining the ones you’ve already built.
As advice site The Art of Manliness explains, the skills you have already built can fade over time. Through disuse and neglect, your brain can start to forget even the most well-practiced skills
if you go a long period of time without using them. It doesn’t happen overnight,
but practicing a little bit every once in a while can stave off the erosion of useful skills:
We often feel like we can leave parts of ourselves dormant, and they’ll just stay as they are — waiting for us to start developing them again. But the truth is that all the components
of our physical and mental make-up operate by the “use it or lose it” principle.
All of life involves swimming against the current of deterioration —
if you’re not constantly putting in the effort to advance, you’re getting swept back.
Of course, we can only choose so many skills to practice, so it may be a valid choice
to let a particular skill die off. As much as I enjoyed the game as a kid, my skills playing
Jet Force Gemini are not very practical to my adult life.
However, if you want to keep your ability to play that instrument, do that workout,
or speak that language, you should probably keep practicing even when you don’t need to.

To Get Inspired, Sometimes You Need to Give Up

Worn wood.

To Get Inspired, Sometimes You Need to Give Up
Eric Ravenscraft

You’ve been staring at a blank page for hours. No matter how hard you think,
you just can’t make the brilliant ideas appear. It’s time to give up, and that’s okay.
As business site Entrepreneur explains, inspiration doesn’t work on a schedule
(and there’s plenty of science to back that idea up). Your brain can’t be forced to come up
with a stellar idea. Trying to coerce your mind into trying, however, can hold you back.
If you want to encourage the good ideas, get comfortable with giving up:
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stared at a blank screen, a white sheet of paper
or a media board and racked my brain for a big idea that just wouldn’t come.
Finally, I give up, plop down in a chair and say, “Screw it, I’m done.’’ It takes a while for my mind
to shut off, but when it does, that’s inevitably when the answer comes.
Any good creative knows that ideas can come at the least opportune times.
The trick is getting into the habit of allowing them to happen naturally.
Sometimes that means you just stop working for the day, give up on being “productive”
and let your mind wander. Adhering to a rigid set of rules doesn’t always guarantee brilliance.
Let yourself have space to give up for a while and you may find your ideas come more naturally
in a relaxed state. Don’t forget to have a way to write them down when they happen, too.
