Are You Working in an Ecosystem or Battlefield? 8 Core Beliefs of Extraordinary Bosses

 What is the difference between an average boss and an extraordinary boss?

 An extraordinary boss builds an ecosystem.

 

I recently read an article that was one of the best I have read in a long time.

Clear and to the point on what makes a good work environment.

 

8 Core Beliefs of Extraordinary Bosses

By Geoffrey James

Writer for www.Inc.com

 

What are your thoughts on the following 8 points?

1. Extraordinary bosses naturally create teams that adapt easily.

2. Extraordinary bosses inspire employees to dedicate themselves to the success of their peers and therefore to the community–and company–at large.

3. Extraordinary bosses commit themselves to obtaining the resources that their employees need to get the job done. They push decision making downward, allowing teams form their own rules and intervening only in emergencies.

4. Extraordinary bosses treat every employee as if he or she were the most important person in the firm. As a result, employees at all levels take charge of their own destinies.

5. Extraordinary bosses inspire people to see a better future and how they’ll be a part of it.  As a result, employees work harder because they believe in the organization’s goals, truly enjoy what they’re doing and (of course) know they’ll share in the rewards.

6. Extraordinary bosses see change as an inevitable part of life. While they don’t value change for its own sake, they know that success is only possible if employees and organization embrace new ideas and new ways of doing business.

7. Extraordinary bosses see technology as a way to free human beings to be creative and to build better relationships.

8. Extraordinary bosses see work as something that should be inherently enjoyable–and believe therefore that the most important job of manager is, as far as possible, to put people in jobs that can and will make them truly happy.

SURVEY | ASL Interpreters for the Deaf – Do You Use Professional Liability Insurance?

Let me start by saying this blog post is not to promote any provider or to sell anything. It is an open forum to discuss the subject of Sign Language Interpreter Liability Insurance for interpreters everywhere.

The subject comes up in many workshops but is normally not discussed in much depth. What are your thoughts and experiences on this subject?

I know of two providers that offer liability insurance for sign language interpreters.

AND

Do you know of other providers you would recommend?

Share your thoughts and experiences on this subject pro and con to provide valuable information for interpreters everywhere who have questions and aren’t sure where to get honest feedback.

You Did Not Just Say That – How would you respond?

 Scenario:

  You are in a social setting with a fairly large group of people you don’t know. As conversations progress everyone decides to go around the room sharing what they do for a living. Your turn arrives and you proudly say you are an interpreter by trade. Silence fills the room and then someone in the back says; You can make a living doing that?

When worlds collide: the Deaf perspective | Communication Issue part 1

An informative discusion from blogger – “When worlds collide: the Deaf perspective”

 

To join the conversation go to this link:  >>  Communication Issue part 1

 

I had a conversation with a friend the other day.  She had mentioned that her partner was complaining about why some hearing people would say that Deaf people forget things all the time.    This is a perfect example.    When hearing people talk to us without sign language or making effort to make sure we’re “listening” as in lip-reading.    If there’s no clear communication such as in sign language, effort in lip-reading or writing notes ; there are going to be some confusion.  I’ve run into this a few times. It isn’t that we forget – it is because we didn’t understand what was being delivered.    For some of Deaf people who relies a lot on lip-reading as I do, sometime after so long of trying to focus on lip-reading, it drains us.  Hence, the confusion.
