Успехов, Вадим! У тебя не может не получиться! Уникальное дело, "примагничивающее" к себе уникальных людей в условиях сегодняшних трендов, это чистая река, река жизни!

Discontent makes you sad / bitter. Gratitude makes you joyful.

Dissatisfaction wakes your motivation up.
Open mind removes barriers to creativity.
Creative dissatisfaction turns you to an innovative entrepreneur.

This is the transcript of an actual radio conversation between a US naval ship and Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1995. The Radio conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations on Oct. 10, 1995.

US Ship: Please divert your course 0.5 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.
CND reply: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.
US Ship: This is the Captain of a US Navy Ship. I say again, divert your course.
CND reply: No. I say again, you divert YOUR course!
CND reply: This is a lighthouse. Your call.

An American battleship ship is traveling at night around Canada when the radio comes on. It says "Canadian Navy to American Battleship, we have detected that you are on a collision course with us. Please alter your course 5 degrees north by north-east to avoid collision, over."
The ship's captain looks at his crewmates, gives them a wink, and picks up the radio. He replies, "American Battleship to Canadian Navy, you are on a collision course with us. Please alter *your* course 5 degrees south by southwest to avoid collision. Over."
The radio comes back on. "Canadian Navy to American Battleship, we can't do that. Please alter your course 5 degrees north by north-east to avoid collision. Over."
The captain takes the radio and, in his best show of authority, says "American Battleship to Canadian Navy. We are the USS Lincoln, one of the largest naval vessels in the entire US navy, and escorted by multiple support ships. If you do not alter your course, we will be forced to defend ourselves to avoid collision. Over."
The radio goes silent for a moment.
Finally, it comes back on. "Canadian Navy to American Battleship. We are a lighthouse. Your call. Over."

How To Set Right Objectives
An objective is a specific step, a milestone, which enables you to accomplish a goal. Strategic planning takes place at the highest levels; other managers are involved with operational planning. The first step in operational planning is defining objectives – the result expected by the end of the budget (or other designated) cycle. The objectives must be: focused on a result, not an activity; consistent; specific; measurable; related to time; attainable.
Setting right objectives is critical for effective performance management. Corporate intents such as higher profits, shareholder value, and customer satisfaction are not objectives because they don't tell managers what to do. Objectives must specify priorities and focus. They must map the journey ahead towards better solutions for the customer and higher profits.
Setting objectives involves a continuous process of research and decision-making. Knowledge of yourself and your unit is a vital starting point in setting objectives.
Assess Yourself
Who am I? What are my strengths? How do I work? Where do I belong? What is my contribution?
Assess Your Unit
What is its role? What are its resources? How does it function? What is my function within it? What are the functions of others?

Respecting Cultural Differences and Working Together
Anthropologists discovered that, when faced by interaction that we do not understand, people tend to interpret the others involved as "abnormal", "weird" or "wrong". Awareness of cultural differences and recognizing where cultural differences are at work is the first step toward understanding each other, communicating more effectively, building trust across cultural boundaries, and establishing a positive working environment. Use these differences to challenge your own assumptions about the "right" way of doing things and as a chance to learn new ways to solve problems and synergize diversities.




However, there is always scope for innovation and as we walk down the high street we can see imaginative retail approaches to the business of attracting customers. Here a couple of striking recent examples.

IKEA in Australia has experimented with a section called Manland. It is basically a creche for husbands and boyfriends with low retail attention spans. It has table football, video games, sports channels etc. A woman can leave her man there and take a buzzer to collect him when she is at the check-out. It is corny and sexist but it is getting a lot of media coverage.

Create synergistic cross-functional combinations!
The wilder your idea, the lesser competition, the stronger buyers resistance, the greater your victory.

You have a message from Rashid Hashmat Ali.
Please reply as soon as possible.
The refund request is not fair becasuse the client justifies it by lack of an action by Google that is not is not a part of the contract.
The contact was implemented by us 100%. The sponsored article sent by the client
"Successful Real Estate Project Management"
was published at this URL
and prepared for indexing by Google by providing 11 incoming links, including one from the home page.

Indexing of new web pages by Google is managed by Google and CANNOT be demanded from anybody else but Google. Google is NOT a part of the contract and thus the demand for refund because Google has not indexed the new page yet is absolutely unfair.

This is unfair refund demand from a person who doeesn't want to understand that the schedule Google indexing of new webpages is managed by Google, not by us.
We did our job according to Sponsored Guest Post standards.

1. We published the client's sponsored article named "Successful Real Estate Project Management" at our website here =>

2. We provided incoming linkss to the artcile to enable indexing it by Gooogle.

Now the client asks for refund from us because Google has not indexed the article yet.
This refund demand is unfair because no one but Google can manage process of Google indexing.
Google indexing of new pages take from 3 to 40 days usually.

As soon as Google indexes the article, the basis for this unfair refund demand will be eliminated.
PS: We are on the market since 2001. It's for the first time that we meet with such and unfair refund demand. Otherwise we have millions of highly satified clients worldwide. Some of their 'Thank-You' notes are published at this page:

Your decision to refund the buyer created a very dangerous precendent.
The buyer complain lookes like:
"We demand refund because the Sun didn't rise at midnight".
The facts are:
Buyer didn't pay in advance, he paid after the job has been done, so he knew what he was paying for.
We completed the job - published the buyer's article according to the industry standards.
The buyer reviewed the job done and made the payment.

Few days later, the buyer demanded refund becasue Google had not indexed his article yet. This is similar to demanding the refund because the Sun didn't rise at midnight s the buyer expected for his own reason.
SEO marketing is a huge $ multi-billion market. Most transactions in market are done through PayPal.
My honoring this unfair refund demand PayPal will cause many publishers to switch to differenet payment system (we'll publish this amazing story at our popular websites and social media in case this refund takes palce).

Thank you for your additional consideration.


Cultural Intelligence A Guide To Working With People From Other Cultures

Manage Your Own Expectations
To achieve more, expect more. In many areas, optimists achieve greater success than pessimists. Optimists and positive thinkers achieve more because they expect more, and as a result work harder and more persistently toward their goals. Whatever you expect with confidence, positive or negative, becomes your reality.
Manage Expectations of Your Partners
Manage expectation of your partners, otherwise their expectations will manage you. Keep your partners informed on your strategies, progress made, obstacles to overcome, and other important things. If you don't manage expectations of your partners, they will create their expectations all by themselves and may impose them upon you.
Project Stakeholder Expectations Management
Project stakeholder expectations management, or a "controlled scope", is a key factor of a successful project. It helps ensure that everyone involved understands exactly what can be accomplished within a given time frame and budget.
Manage Customer Expectations
Customer is anyone who receives that which is offered by the value producer. Customer expectations are continuously increasing. Brand loyalty is a thing of the past. Customers seek out products and value producers that are best able to satisfy their requirements. A product does not need to be rated highest by customers on all dimensions, only on those they think are important.

Smart ones recognize change. Smarter ones anticipate change. Smartest ones create change.

Marketers arouse interest. Sellers facilitate decision and inspire action.
Marketing specialists create a Unique Selling Proposition (USP), but it's sellespersons who can communicate it to prospects in a customized way.
Marketing focuses on creating a powerful emotion-driven first impression. Salespersons strengthen the marketing message by adding listening, empathy, relationship, experience and advise to it.
“Today's selling is SYSTEM SELLING, solution selling, consultative selling; it entails analyzing customer needs, designing alternative solutions, scrutinizing costs, developing and implementing systems, and more. Modern selling is a team sport, and a complex one at that.” ~ Michael Hammer
Sales integration is a process that allows marketing and sales teams to work together to generate awareness for a brand or product to a target audience, to create a better prospect experience, and then to convert prospects into paying customers.
Getting your sales and marketing teams to communicate and share information with one another can help make this process run more smoothly. Additional benefits include alignment of goals, a more collaborative environment, a more logical and better lead generation process, higher clarity, and higher revenue.

How To Realize the Full Potential of Transformational Change

Any transformational change will realize its full potential only if people issues are dealt with from the start and not left until after the transition to the new state has been completed. The following measures will help you to get the people issues right.

Communicate frequently and honestly throughout the whole change project.

Involve people in change management teams or cross-functional groups.

Address personal anxieties by giving honest advice about what is likely to happen in future.

Assure people that their contributions are valued even if new structures or roles are not yet defined and that you will find the right fit for every employee in the new organizational structure.

Give people opportunities to talk about their achievements in the past and a dream job in the new organization.

Ensure that the process of internal selection of the right person for each job is impartial and transparent.

Create benefits packages, such as Quick-Adaptation bonuses, that would motivate employees to embrace change better and faster.

Invite employees to provide feedback on the change process and effectiveness of the new structure. Solicit suggestions for improvement.

In a Canadian first, the Magpie River in Quebec has now been legally declared a person.
Also known as Muteshekau-shipu in the Innu language, the river has been granted legal personhood through resolutions by the Innu Council of Ekuanitshit and the Minganie Regional County Municipality.
Since the river is legally a person, it now has rights and potential legal guardians who would be responsible for ensuring those rights are respected.
This is the first time this has happened in Canada.
It's part of a global movement active in New Zealand, the U.S. and Ecuador that aims to recognize the rights of nature.
According to Alliance Muteshekau-shipu, the protection of the river has been agreed on regionally but not by Hydro-Québec because of its hydroelectric potential.

I wish to share my great positive experience of dealing with Tenzin Rabgay from Bhutan. We have been collaborating since 2017. Tenzin led the international team of MBA students at the 1st World Innompic Games. He demonstrated outstanding altruistic leadership skills and won Mister Innovation World award.

We are in touch since then. Today, Tenzin teaches entrepreneurship and innovation at the Royal University of Bhutan. As a Goodwill Ambassador of Innompic Games (Innossador), Tenzin inspires his students to join the Innompic Planet of Loving Creators and participate in Innompic Games.

Here is another example of IRBAN in action. Kim Peng Foo from Singapore, a Jury member and Innossador of World Innompic Games, wishes to visit Bhutan as soon as the pandemics permits. I put Kim in touch with Tenzin to help him to get the most from his trip to Bhutan. Kim will give a master class on entrepreneurship to Tenzin's students who are looking forward to it.
Do something jointly with Tenzin, and you will be amazed by his altruism, professionalism and agility - the three words he lives by.
