Leaders are critical to the survival and strong performance of any business and if you do not have natural leaders that have already come to the fore then you should look for those within your organisation that are willing to take the plunge and become the motivational leaders that you require. At ESI International we are dedicated to providing the best commercial courses to help individuals become professional leaders and you can find more details about these courses on the pages of our website.

A manager is not necessarily a leader and rather than being a position within an organisation, the role of leader is a motivational role that one or more team members will hopefully adopt so that your business can really benefit. After all, a leader will inspire other members of a team to perform and they will assist those team members in coming to the fore and producing the results that a business demands to thrive.

A leader is dedicated to their own development and to that of the organisation and this can boost morale considerably so that members of the organisation become more motivated. Increased employee morale means reduced staff churn, reduced absenteeism, and morale that continues to spread through an organisation like a virus. Project management courses can be viral in their nature and by creating motivated leaders, you motivate the whole of the team to perform.

Productivity will naturally increase when good quality leaders are in place. Not only do leaders inspire and motivate but they also tend to bring positive working practices on board too. They encourage others to communicate more freely with them so that ideas are more readily available, problems are highlighted sooner, and solutions can be created where they may not have otherwise existed.

Leaders can identify with the members of their team more effectively than managers (the two can, of course, be the same person).They will be able to identify any problems, whether personal or professional and whether social or corporate, and act upon them to create solutions and ensure that these problems do not become a major issue. PMP training can be a highly effective addition to any business.

    I possess a company, ive hire people whose job would be to call someone and request them if there thinking about buying a paritcular produect. Issue is because the job is extremely easy, job is extremely boring, employees aren’t turning up promptly or dont even appear, some appear drunk, and when they are doing appear they simply wallow in it just like a lump looking to be taken care of doing less than possible. My motivation technique is to fireplace anybody who does not meet their quota, i monitor the phoen calls to determine how theire doing and also to have the ability to validate there repot sheets so that they cant fake anything and that i outlay cash cash in the finish each week. This works to some extent since it will get eliminate the slackers however it does hardly any to motivate my favorite employees. I’m able to esaily get two times as numerous brings as my favorite employees and that i know they are able to fare better… I cant appear to encourage them to do a lot more than the minim needed to have their job.

    I want some motivation methods…. It may connect with leadership, work design and motivation.. To date i emerged with creating purchase performance, creating incentives and reWARDS, maybe obtain a supervisor but what leadership style work design and motivation stratgeies can one use to create this easy job better so that they continue to work harder..

    to cast one vote in our elections?

    I can’t see an entire population casting votes, of course, but what if the nations we have relations with were permitted to cast one vote?

    http://news.yahoo.com/chavez-says-election-rival-romney-want-subjugate-venezuela-041108602.html?_esi=0

    When we elect our leaders for 4 year terms, usually we’re considering domestic policies that appeal to our preferences. When these new leaders take office, sometimes the big picture tends to elude us just a little bit, and the considerations of other country’s leaders are to the way side.

    The USA is not exactly completely socialist yet, but once we make that transition–the next step is expansive international policies. It is important that other country’s leaders are also heard, since our effectiveness in the global sphere is also dependent on the quality of the leadership we put into office. I certainly appreciate Mr Chavez’s, President of Venezula’s, comments.

    After losing hope of finding an aloe vera gel that has close to 100% pure aloe vera in it, i came across this. does it seem legit?? and can they lie about the active ingredients? (or could they get in trouble for that..). lol. i just really want a product that is completely natural (as extracting gel from the plant is an extreme hassle)

    What I mean is, we have a lot of people judging each other on their religion and on their beliefs. Or sometimes I feel people are judged on how they even think. Maybe I’m wrong I just wish that the fore fathers of the United States could get a look on how we are so unconnnected to each other.

    MYTH 1: The US was founded on Christian principles.

    TRUTH: This is incorrect.

    The Constitution never once mentions a deity, because the Founding Fathers wanted to keep their new country “religion-neutral.” Our Founding Fathers were an eclectic collection of Atheists, Deists, Christians, Freemasons and Agnostics.

    George Washington, the Father of our country, and John Adams (Second President of the USA) CLEARLY stated in the 1796 Treaty of Tripoli: “The Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian Religion.”

    G.W. rarely attended church and instead followed a popular 18th century philosophy called Deism—a Star Wars-esque philosophy that believed in a cosmic energy or big-ass universal “Force.” The dictionary says that Deism is “a system of thought advocating natural religion based on human reason rather than revelation,” that had nothing to do with Christian principles.

    James Madison, original mastermind of our Constitution, was an Atheist to the core who loved skewering Christianity. In 1785 he wrote, “What have been [Christianity’s] fruits? More or less in all places, pride and indolence in the Clergy, ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution.”

    Thomas Jefferson, who sat down and authored The Declaration of Independence, rarely missed an opportunity to laugh at Christianity. In a letter to John Adams in 1823, he wrote: “The day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus…will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter.”

    More ammo: In 1814, Tommy J. wrote about the Bible’s Old and New Testaments, “The whole history of these books is so defective and doubtful — evidence that parts have proceeded from an extraordinary man; and that other parts are of the fabric of very inferior minds.”

    In fact, it was President Jefferson himself who first wrote (to a Baptist church group in 1802), “The First Amendment has erected a wall of separation between Church and State.” Therefore, when Jefferson talked about “Nature’s God,” the “Creator” and “divine Providence ” in the Declaration that he wrote, he was being a hippie and referring to a general cosmic energy– not the Christian God.

    America is not a Christian nation. Period. Our Constitution derived from the post-Christian Enlightenment values of reason and truth…never from the paranoid yammerings of that otherwise compassionate cult leader who fucking died in the Middle Eastern desert 3000 years ago.

    MYTH 2. The US doesn’t need improvement compared to other countries; it is the greatest country in the world.
    TRUTH: Wrong again. I’ll only cite the statistics here.

    So much for those “socialist” Europeans and those “backward” Asians, hm? We can do better than this.

    MYTH 3: The US government loves to help other countries.
    TRUTH: This is a myth. The US government tends to be motivated by interests, not humanitarian principles.

    Denmark gives the most amount of its GDP (1.01%) to developing countries; Norway gives 0.91%; the Netherlands give 0.79% and so on until the end of list, where the USA sits. Yes, America ranks DEAD LAST in foreign aid at a pathetic 0.1% of its GDP, compared to the other 21 nations listed as developed nations. The idea that the US government is a heroic bunch that runs around the world helping the poor and the disempowered is not backed up by the evidence. We have one of the stingiest governments on earth.

    Most Americans believe the US spends 24% of its budget on aid to poor countries; the actual amount is well under a quarter of 1%. Our country also ranks #5 on asylum-seeker acceptance rates (#1 is Denmark and #2 is Canada).

    Another interesting fact: Conservative Red states have a divorce rate 27% higher than the liberal Blue states, the per capita rate of violent crime in Red states is 49 per 100,000 higher than in Blue states, the top 5 states with the highest rates of alcohol abuse are Red states, and the per capita rate of gonorrhea in Red states was 41 per 100,000 higher than in the Blue states. Time to unshelf the antibiotics for our “ethical,” “God-fearing” conservative friends with their “traditional family values.”
    yes g, they are not answering becuz they are unable to think critically about the world becuz unfortunately this government doesn’t do a good job at providing its citizens with quality education…in a few words…they keep ’em dumb on purpose..like a flock of sheep…the dumber they are, the easier to control.
    what do i think? I think the US government should get rid of privatized healthcare, and offer it for free, just like in many many other countries. Also, the government should offer free education, again, as in many other countries. This would help reduce the social segregation that exists, poverty, and create some sort of chance at income equality between the different “classes” . There are huge gaps of income between the classes, the middle class is shrinking and no party of the government cares.
    How could this country do this? well, instead of meddling in other countries when their is no proof of weapons of mass destruction or of grave terroristic activities and using BILLIONS AND BILLIONS of dollars on war, they could “fix” these problems. The problem is, THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT CITIZENS. they care about MONEY POWER.
    So, i think that the “rich” should be taxed even more.
    Also the president of the country shouldn’t own anything of great value, because this causes a conflict of interest
    and I am from the US too and grew up here, so no i am not an illegal citizen or a foreigner. I can be as negative as I want…..everyone says this country is the BEST IN THE WORLD becuz of FREEDOM OF SPEECH, religious freedom, AND THEN WHEN SOMEONE SAYS WHAT THE FEEL, POSTS SOME DISTURBING STATS, YOU FREAK OUT AND OSTRICIZE THEM….yes WOW, YOU REALLY DO BELIEVE IN FREEDOM, dont you????
    And these are not rambles….read the statistics..these are INTERNATIONAL ANNUAL RESEARCH STATS…to see where each country stands on important issues, the quality of life, quality of healthcare, and freedom of the press.
    yes answer man, everything that doesn’t conform to your ideas, which are probably shaped by propaganda (you eat it all up don’t you?) is some crazy liberal/socialist tactic. You sound like a paranoid conservative…..arrest all the commies!!! the world is coming to an end!! hahahaha….ridiculous.
    and I don’t hate this country, i am from here…as i have already written…you prolly don’t really read everything before you comment.
    I just like to try to think critically, instead of bashing everything that isn’t MAINSTREAM propaganda.
    also answer man, you are the one that doesn’t GET IT….I am not the one comparing the US to N. Korea….other people are, which is absurd….that is why i brought it up. Easy to compare two extremes so that the USA can come out of the comparison all glorious. BS! Compare it to more similar countries to see how the US is REALLY doing. Do you understand when you read? can you put 2 and 2 together…jeez.
    and slicktop80: i don’t see you offering any solutions even though you are disturbed yourself. Always waiting for others to make the move huh? whatever. At least i am bringing these “disturbing” stats up, since most people have no clue and never dare to dream about comparing the US to other countries in a research study.

    1) 90% if not more of all CEO’s are men.

    2) Most military leaders are men

    3) Most politicians and leaders are men

    4) More men go into high paid jobs like engineering and computer science.

    Doesn’t this show male privilege?

    Or is it that:

    1) Men start their own business’ much much more than women, you start your own business, you own that business, for example facebook and twitter were founded by men, yet feminist demand women have places at the boarding room? similarly feminist’s demand a place at comic-con, again founded by men. -.-

    2) Much, much more men CHOOSE to join the military, so more get to higher ranks.

    3) Much, much more men CHOOSE to go into politics than women

    4) Nearly all the people who choose to go into high paid jobs like engineering and computer science are men.

    Women NEED quotas to get into these roles, most people who apply to become doctors are men, and if it weren’t for quotas we wouldn’t have so many female doctors.

    Doctors are now considered ‘watered down’ and we have a shortage of them as women want flexible hours and quit early to have a child.

    http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/health-news/the-medical-timebomb-too-many-women-doctors-6260011.html

    Who said this? – A leading female doctor and one of the best medical practises – Professor Carol Black, the president of the Royal College of Physicians

    Then women complain about no high ranking women in the NHS.

    Also, more women going into teaching, and she comments, looking at how education has been watered down.

    Reminds me of when I was at school, too many push over teachers, not enough work related to the core topic, and my geography teacher was off twice in a row to have children, for pretty much all of year 11. -.-

    Well if you want it, work as hard as a man who got there did, instead of complaining about your own incompetence! -.-

    Any area, ANY where women are under-represented in western society is purely because she doesn’t choose that area, she doesn’t qualify for that area or she is simply outperformed by men in that area.

    All the sprinters and long distance runners in the Olympics (or nearly all) are black men, because they run the fastest.

    Do you hear white men saying this is discrimination and demanding quota’s?

    Do you hear black men complaining about being under-represented in swimming or cycling?

    DO men complain about being under-represented in primary schools and nursing?

    You can’t blame others for their choices and for their better performance, only look to improve your own.

    Women need to stop pointing the finger and take responsibility.

    Feminists, consider yourselves schooled.
    Mister Left, that is ridiculous, men and women are both born into a society where they are free to choose.

    Nothing is holding anyone back, unless you are trying to imply men and women having different opportunities has made men’s genetics different and superior at those roles?

    Because that’s sexist and you can’t be saying that 😉

    I’ve never heard anyone use that argument you know, it is illogical.
    A long list of things you have failed to specify or prove. I have proven my argument.

    Mister Left, your debate is baseless and weak.
    Again you make no point, you just insulted me claiming I was stubborn, which isn’t the case.

    You did try to debate with me that’s why you argued with me over my point over genetics.

    I don’t care how simplistic you think my view is, my argument is in reality 100% correct and I have backed it up with facts.

    Your argument is speculation and it’s illogical, and I’m not even sure what it is it’s so in-concise…
    I never said women were worse doctors, but due to their lack of commitment they leave too early or aren’t there often enough to give the same service committed men give, that’s all she was saying and that’s all I am saying.

    I never said men are better, I simply said men are more committed and more dependable.

    That woman’s word is not accurate then? and the first 4 numbers are all provable facts, my reasons can also be demonstrated by the fact that women don’t go for these jobs, simple as that.

    First off, I did say 1st world nations. Secondly, noone has given a real answer other than “we are free” “you’re not patriotic” and other such nonsense. Each of the “considering” statements are true. We rank last in each one of those categories among 1st world (Industrialized) nations. There are 26 industrialized nations in the world, and not only do we rank last among 1st world nations in each of those categories, we are pretty far down the list among 3rd world nations as well. We are 32nd in the world for education, 46th for personal freedoms, etc. I’m looking for thought out answers, not mindless, thoughtless, flag waving dribble. Can anyone tell me what makes this nation great besides these things?

I don’t want to leave, I want to see our country become great again instead of getting worse because everyone just wants to believe that we are the best.

    Im 16 and a junior in high school. Quite frankly I’ve noticed that I never get lucky with the ladies.

    The negatives: I don’t ever drink nor do drugs so I’m not invited to parties. Not extremely hot nor very muscular. I played world of warcraft until august. Being a social idiot I chose to bring up my opinions, which, as a republican in western washington, resulted in anger from other people. I tend to comically use self deprecating mock arrogance for humors sake. Don’t have a license cuz I don’t have money for insurance.

    The positives: I’ve been told I’m funny. I’m going snow boarding this season. Half of last school year and into this school year I’ve avoided bringing up my opinion most of the time which seems to help. I’m rather intelligent and have a 3.5 in IB classes (IB is an international advanced placement program) and would have a 4.0 if I was in normal classes. I’m building up muscle from swim team. I’m not amazing at swimming so I don’t see it taking me anywhere but it gets me in shape. Also, I’m currently saving money for car insurance so I should have my license soon.

    So my question is, even though I have things going for me and not to many things that are bad, why is it that every time I try to get a girl, I end up failing? What is it that I’m doing wrong?

    I live in Canada on the border. I have lots of American friends and I love the states, so don’t think I’m trying to knock the states. But I’ve noticed a lot of Americans don’t seem to realize that there is a whole world of great countries out there. But a lot of Americans seem to think that america is sooooo great and all other coutries suck. Anyone want to comment on this?

    Those of us who are not Americans but still have maintained some respect for this once great nation (and we are getting fewer and fewer daily) wonder how much damage the Republicans can do to America’s image, capabilities and society before it is irreperable.
