how to make your boss listen to your ideas

I walked to my desk and flung my diary. It thudded loudly and jolted my teammates out of their seats.

What happened?” Arun asked.

“He just doesn’t get it, does he?” I said.

“Did you speak about your idea with the boss?” he asked.

“Yes,” I said, working hard to stay calm. “And he said it’s not a priority right now. I mean, what part of ‘improved user experience’ doesn’t he understand!”

“That sucks. It was a good suggestion,” Arun chuckled. I would hate his chuckling as much as I hated my boss.

“I should change my job,” I mumbled. “The new boss will appreciate me.”

“He won’t,” Arun said.

That hurt. I didn’t speak to Arun for a couple of hours. But it was the truth. I needed to hear it, even if I didn’t want to.

Tips to improve productivity at work and in life

Don’t you wish there were more hours in a day? How do some people get more done in 24 hours than the rest of us can in a week!

Turns out that you don’t need more than 24 hours. True, sometimes despite managing time immaculately, you don’t. But that is rare.

How can you do more in a day? The answer lies in developing one ‘skill’ which is important in every phase of life, one which it takes practice to implement it with finesse. It’s especially important at work, because that is where we spend most of our time.

tips to build effective presentation skills

Picture this: You deliver a fabulous presentation on a topic. Your audience hangs on to every word you say. It ends in a long, genuine applause. Your audience is happy because they can take a lot away. Break the ice with important people in the audience is easy because they already have a positive impression of you.

Tough? Yes. Unless you possess a natural flair for speaking publicly.

Impossible? Certainly not! Many have mastered the art of presentations despite being afraid of them in the beginning.
