Are bad employees ruining your business?

By Stephanie Frank

It’s a brand new day. You wake up after a great night’s sleep and get ready for work. You have objectives to meet, deadlines approaching and meetings scheduled which will make for a very full day. After a quick breakfast and a cup of your favorite morning beverage, you head to work.

Then your day goes haywire.

Traffic jams make you cranky. Nothing on the news you wish to hear. The parking lot is full and it is hot outside. You finally make it to the office, already tired and sweaty from the commute. You walk in to find your employees, the same ones who are supposed to be helping you move forward, stuck in permanent water-cooler chatter. They scurry back to work just as you arrive.

Mistakes, apologies, Internet surfing and just plain goofing off are ruining your productivity and the productivity and profitability of your company. In short, you have C.R.A.P. - Confusion, Resistance, Apathy and Procrastination in the driver’s seat. It’s time for a new approach to getting things done!

Before we go any further, let’s get real here for a minute. Do you really believe that people come to work saying to themselves “I wonder how I can mess up this company and get paid for it?” Probably not. Down deep, every human being wants to be a part of something they can be proud of. The rampant “what’s in it for me” apathetic approach to work cannot be tolerated. At the same time, it’s an almost insurmountable job for an organization or individual to be responsible for changing the attitude of every employee individually. While simple steps can be taken to reprimand bad employees, the root of the problem must be addressed as an organization before real change is to take place.

The root of the solution to the problem is a simple formula called F.A.S.T. In short, your employees need to have the right Focus, take the right Action, have the right Systems, and be on the right Team in order to provide your company with the most profitable return on investment.

So how does this formula work? Let’s take a look:

1. The Right Focus - Bad employee behavior is rampant when employees or managers are isolated and do not know the “bigger picture.” People need to know what is expected of them and why. With downsizing happening, many employees have taken on the job of others and have lost sight of this original focus. They are unsure how their job fits in with the company objectives, which can lead to resistance and procrastination.

Additionally, employees need to know the actual requirements of their job and what is considered success. For example, a bank teller may be required to process a particular type of transaction in a specified amount of time, or may be required to process x number of customers in an hour. This sets a guideline for both employees and management/leadership of the organization by which success or failure can be measured.

2. The Right Action - Time productivity is a primary component of success, yet we are all bombarded with daily distractions, interruptions and “can you just fit this in now?” requests. Ill-equipped to handle the ever-increasing amount of information, email and phone messages, many employees are simply overwhelmed by the amount of work required and goof off because they can’t handle it all.

In order to set people up for success, allow them to have an hour a day of “focus time” where they are not allowed to be interrupted. They will use this time to tackle those high priority items on their list of tasks to complete. This promotes a feeling of accomplishment and success and demotes the frustration of having too much to do.

3. The Right Systems - Take a look at how things are being done - do employees take the simplest and cleanest route to accomplishment or are they stuck in the process maze? The harder it is to get things done, the more your employees are apt to be confused, nervous or just plain resistant to going through the pre-established systems.

It may be time to do an internal systems check. Ask your employees which systems make it difficult to do their job in an efficient and timely manner. Prioritize those which are most often reported, and fix it. Create new and more streamlined systems that do the work with less effort, and employees will step up to be more productive.

4. The Right Team - We all know how important it is to have the right person for the job, and the right team to make it happen. Yet all too often, people are asked to step into doing jobs that have been vacated with disastrous results. Simple tasks to some people may be daunting to others, which leads to decline of the organization.

It may be time for an internal individual audit of each of your team members. Schedule a private interview with each one and ask them what they believe they contribute to the team, what is working for them and what is not working for them. Then ask them what they need to be completely successful in their position. The results may shock you, and when you take corrective action, they will also take corrective action, and profitability (not to mention productivity) will grow to new heights.

People have always been, and probably will always be the single most important asset to any organization. At the same time, those same people can be the biggest problem in any organization. By putting this formula into place, you will immediately see where you or your organization can create a structure that enhances both employee happiness and productivity which eliminates confusion, resistance, apathy and procrastination - and all those wasted trips to the water cooler.

Here WithOut You - {:--((((|

A hundred days had made me older 
since the last time that I've saw your pretty face 

A thousand lights had made me colder and I don't think I can look at this the same 

But all the miles had separate 
They disappear now when I'm dreaming of your face 

I'm here without you baby 
but your still on my lonely mind 
I think about you baby 
and I dream about you all the time 
I'm here without you baby 
but your still with me in my dreams 
And tonight it's only you and me 

The miles just keep rollin 
as the people either way to say hello 
I've heard this life is overrated 
but I hope that it gets better as we go 

I'm here without you baby 
but your still on my lonely mind 
I think about you baby 
and I dream about you all the time 
I'm here without you baby 
but your still with me in my dreams 
And tonight girl it's only you and me 

Everything I know, 
and anywhere I go 
it gets hard but it won't take away my love 
And when the last one falls, 
when it's all said and done 
it get hard but it won't take away my love 

I'm here without you baby 
but your still on my lonely mind 
I think about you baby 
and I dream about you all the time 
I'm here without you baby 
but your still with me in my dreams 
And tonight girl it's only you and me

A Potatoes Story.......!

A kindergarten teacher has decided to let her class play a game. 

The teacher told each child in the class to bring along a plastic bag containing a few potatoes. Each potato will be given a name of a person that the child hates, so the number of potatoes that a child will put in his/her plastic bag will depend on the number of people he/she hates. 

So when the day came, every child brought some potatoes with the name of the people he/she hated. Some had 2 potatoes; some 3 while some up to 5 potatoes. 

The teacher then told the children to carry with them the potatoes in the plastic bag wherever they go (even to the toilet) for 1 week. 

Days after days passed by, and the children started to complain due to the unpleasant smell let out by the rotten potatoes. 

Besides, those having 5 potatoes also had to carry heavier bags. After 1 week, the children were relieved because the game had finally ended. 

The teacher asked: "How did you feel while carrying the potatoes with you for 1 week?" 

The children let out their frustrations and started complaining of the trouble that they had to go through having to carry the heavy and smelly potatoes wherever they go. 

Then the teacher told them the hidden meaning behind the game. The teacher said: "This is exactly the situation when you carry your hatred for somebody inside your heart. 

The stench of hatred will contaminate your heart and you will carry it with you wherever you go. If you cannot tolerate the smell of rotten potatoes for just 1 week, can you imagine what is it like to have the stench of hatred in your heart for your lifetime?" 


Moral of the Hatred (Human Vices) story:

Throw away any hatred for anyone from your heart so that you will not carry sins for a lifetime. Forgiving others is the best attitude to take. "Learn to Forgive and Forget."

Need of Contemporary Era......

In the current era Muslims are in problems all over the world. Why is this so? At one time the Muslims were the most powerful nations of the world, they conquered the world, and Muslims scholars were followed by other religions. At one time Iraq is the place of knowledge, where one of the legend scholar’s were born e.g. Al Beroni, Al Kahwarzmi, there were lot of libraries.
I would like to some quotations which says that “the Modernization in Islam can play very important role in rehabilitation in the Islamic countries”

“In Pakistan the Muslims are always follow the Mullaaism, people never try to understand the message given in the Qur’an. In our life Islam is only related to Marriage, Death and the Birth of someone. There is need of dialogue with western world and this is only possible when we are good in Researches and when we can understand the Qur’an”
By Dr. Javed Iqbal Famous Scholar

“Today, the only thing by which Muslims can survive in this world is the Modernization in Islam in the light of Qur’an, because the Qur’an is the guidance to recover our self from all disasters.”
By Dr.Zakir Naik Islamic Scholar

“The difference between the education of our universities and western universities are Research & Development, we have same education system which were given by East India Company. There is not a single university in Pakistan where any kind of research related to Islam you can found, that whys westerns are dominate in the current world “
By Professor Ahsan Iqbal MAJU

Today, Muslims are terribly in the war. Why we are not modernizing the Islam? Why we are not follow the Qur’an and find out the solution by which Muslims can improve there society. Is there any university in the Muslims countries where the research is based upon modernization in Islam? I guess no. The need of current era is only and only

You talk of 9/11… but 9/11 happens everyday in my lands…

You talk of how 9/11 was a day you suffered,
And how it was a day where it killed 3,000,
And a sad day that must be remembered for eternity…
And it is a day you keep reminding us about,And you cry over it repeatedly…

When does the second face of the hypocrite expose itself?
In Palestine, my people are bombed constantly,
Homes bulldozed like grass being cut with a lawnmower.
In Afghanistan and 'Iraaq, my people are cowardly bombed from the sky,
Most of the time, killing women and children,
And destroying homes and families.

In Somalia, my people are raped and their neighborhoods bombed,
Until my people wake up every morning, expecting the worst.
But of course, none of this matters to you.
Because the blood of an American is worth more than a Muslim…
So glad tidings of hypocrisy to the two faced people,
Who cry of innocent deaths on 9/11,
But turn their faces away towards the innocent deaths of daily life,
Committed by its own people and her allies.

And glad tidings to these two faced hypocrites,
Who attack the Muslim lands after 9/11 based on retaliation,
Yet, for some reason, the Muslims don't have this same right,
When they retaliated for the crimes of AmericaOn September the 11th.
You talk of 9/11,But 9/11 happens everyday in my lands.

Obligations Muslim Owe to Quran

The pathetic and disastrous condition of the Muslim Ummah throughout the world is due to the abandoning of the Holy Qur´an by the Muslims. The attitude of indifference that we constantly show towards the last of the Allah´s Revelations, along with our hypocritical lip-service, is tantamount to ridiculing it. Instead, we must clearly understand our responsibilities towards the Holy Qur´an and try our very best in fulfilling them. We can neither expect any improvement in our worldly state of affairs nor hope for salvation in the Hereafter, unless we carry out all the obligations that we owe to the Qur´an.

The Qur´an makes five demands from every Muslim, which are as follows:

1- A Muslim is required to believe in the Qur´an;
2- He is required to read it;
3- He is required to understand it;
4- He is required to act upon its teachings;
5- He is required to convey its teachings to others.

The central axis and pivot of the Muslim Ummah is the Holy Qur´an. It is the Divine Revelation that provides the Muslims with a unifying source of guidance, consolidating them in the form of a singular force despite all their secondary differences and minor disagreements. The evil of sectarianism, therefore, can only be done away with the sword of the Qur´an. This is because human beings who have a common goal tend to unite and associate with each other. People with similar interests, ambitions, and priorities are automatically attracted towards each other. No artificial effort or external coercion is needed to unite them. Since the Holy Qur´an is common to all of the various sects, it has a tremendous potential for uniting them together. If we succeed in making the Holy Qur´an the center and nucleus of our lives, then all strife, disharmony, and sectarianism will disappear from the ranks of the Ummah. Insha Allah.
