Shivmohan – Perspective on Mentoring


A Perspective on Mentoring

Hello Friends,

In my past organization it was very important to use high jargons even for small things or activities, even for giving help to juniors or bit of guidance used to consider as mentoring. Coaching was very common word. Recently i am reading one book on mentoring, now realizing that mentoring is not just a bigger coverage areas but it is important as well in order to build and keep a successful team/ group and to make them grow in order to achieve your own and their success. Once i get more thoughts i like to share it, here i just putting very high agenda on what mentoring is… i also more from your side as well as feedback.

as per some of thought i gather i can say do
  – Set high expectations of performance.
  – Offer challenging ideas.
  – Help to build self-confidence.
  – Encourage professional behaviour.
  – Offer friendship.
  – Confront negative behaviour & attitudes.
  – Listen to personal problems.
  – Teach by example.
  – Provide growth experiences.
  – Offer meaningful sayings or quotations.
  – Explain how the organization works.
  – Coach their mentorees.
  – Stand by their mentorees in critical situations.
  – Offer wise counsel.
  – Encourage winning behaviour.
  – Trigger self-awareness.
  – Inspire their mentorees.
  – Share critical knowledge.
  – Offer encouragement.
  – Assist with their mentoree’s career.

Shivmohan – Oracle 11i Multi Org – Definition


What is the MultiOrg and what is it used for?

MultiOrg or Multiple Organizations Architecture allows multiple operating units and their relationships to be defined within a single installation of Oracle Applications. This keeps each operating unit’s transaction data separate and secure. Further all organizations can share some master data like supplier, customer, bank, AFF, payment terms, price lists etc.

Use the following query to determine if MuliOrg is intalled:

select multi_org_flag from fnd_product_groups;

Shivmohan – A View on Soft Skills


success 

A View on Soft Skills – Its relevence on individual success 

Hello Friends, Few days before i conduct a session on how to give feedback and how to receive feedback, though it was part of regular awareness session happen to make teams aware on appraisal process, its objectives and how to follow appraisal system. During Question & Answers session there were very interesting thought raised about how an individual need to have to grow and be successful in organization. Almost everyone is having same skills and expertize but only few of them possibly will move and will move up more in coming time. what is that difference. somehow i felt i should write something on that and here it is , though it looks little theory but i 100% sure if follow it consciously and put some energy in genuiue approach, it works. We make progress by meeting the challenge and conquering our fears. In that way our emotions motivate greater effort, which invites growth and development. Behavioral training experts say there are several soft skills are required in these circumstances. Some of them include:

 

i. Interpersonal skills
ii. Team spirit
iii. Social grace
iv. Business etiquette
v. Negotiation skills
vi. Behavioral traits such as attitude, motivation and time management  

 

In the initial years of your career, your technical abilities are important to get good assignments. However, when it comes to growing in an organization, it is your personality that matters, more so in large organizations where several people with similar technical expertise will compete for a promotion.

 

While organizations are definitely investing in augmenting their staff’s people skills, here are some inputs for professionals and students who would like to initiate the process themselves:

 

i. Be a part of team activities : Observe your own behaviour in the group and how you relate to others.

ii. Ask family members or close friends to write down your best and worst traits. Ideally, have at least four to five people do this for you. Evaluate the common traits all of them have mentioned. Thus, you can be aware of your strengths and work improving your weaknesses.

iii. How well do you manage your time.  Think.  Can you do more in life  Or is your day too crammed with activities  Effective time management is very essential in the corporate world.

iv. Introspect on how you react to feedback.  In organisations, people skills mostly come into the picture when there is feedback given — be it for an idea, an executed project or a presentation. You are judged by the way you respond to feedback.  Do you get defensive?  Do you insist you were right?   Do you meekly accept criticism?   Remember, people tend to be judged and stereotyped according to their responses. You will, too.

v. How good are you at critiquing. While responding to feedback is one side of the coin, giving feedback is the other side. Are you aggressive?  Pessimistic?  Do you believe in constructive criticism?  Or prefer to be the yes-man

vi. Live consciously. Any organisation is manned by people, therefore soft skills are all about how you deal with people and present yourself.

 

plz share your feedback and comments, also plz contribute if you have anything in this topic or in general.

thanks
