Change! – Training Report on Successful Working Attitude

Change! – Training on Successful Working Attitude
Indadi Utama Sdn. Bhd. | 18th August, 2007 | 8am – 4pm | 50 pax

Objectives:
1. To encourage positive working attitude between staffs and sales team.
2. Lead and inspire the organisation people through change management.

indadi3b.jpgIt’s a great honour for me to get invited to conduct an employee empowerment program on 18th Aug for Indadi Utama, a company based in Indonesia which is locally re-known for manufacturing and distributing sweets and beverage drinks.

I had a talk with the CEO, Mr. Frankie and gosh, that was the only time I knew they wanted to start the program after 2 days, which was also the only day their staffs gathered for a national quarterly meeting!

Yes, 2 days, I afraid this was not sufficient to workout a training syllabus especially in cater to one’s organisation need, moreover, I insisted that a training diagnosis must be done beforehand. I must say this was indeed a very rush project which I am sure, any trainers will unlikely to take up the challenge. However, without any hesitation, I took the challenge.

indadi7.jpgForgive me, I am not the trainer who is keen to apply the same syllabus to any company. I believe every challenge lies an opportunity, this is also the main reason why I engaged this training despite time constraint.

The program started with an ice breaking session for the fellow participants who came from other indadi utama branches in the country. The ice-breaking session actually come with a moral value behind, in which the participants were to be identified what types of people they belong to in an organisation. The morning session were talking about Mark Twain’s 3 categories people in organisation: people who make things happened, people who watch things happened and those who are left to ask what did happen. It was fun with interactive dialogue and games in which they also learnt and realise the ability to foreseen oppurtunities against problems, as well as the power of change by taking action NOW!

indadi8.jpgThe afternoon session, which I catered to be more active and energetic, were also fun-filled with non-stop team performing games. Knowing that the afternoon learning environment will tend to normally make participants more tire and sleepy, especially after lunch, the program was therefore being designed to be more ‘mobile’ in which the participants were not only sit and listen. Some activtity projects even require them to ‘move around’ with their seating chair, switched partners for different role-playing games, team-up for group discussion etc.

indadi2a.jpgFirst, they were required to workout a advertising and promotion campaign for their company’s newly-launched products. With application to the reality TV show concept, every group will have to present their ideas to the panel judge who consisted of CEO and departmental managers. Every group will be questioned by the judges based on strategy creativity, promotional efforts and budget wise. Those came unprepared and appear ‘non-strategic’ will get eliminated.

Second, the groups again competed with each other in a sales persuasion games, whereby each groups were assigned to sell a product which was defeated, and even tear and worn. They must stand out from the problems, enforcing positive creativity and hard-selling their products out of impossibilities.

indadi1a.jpgOverall, I am impressed with the multi-racial participants which were able to work in team well out of my expectation. Indadi Utama has demonstrated a good example in which, a high-standard of tolerance and acceptance among teams were managed to be created, despite different ethnic group, race, religion and education background of the fellow participants.

Thank you Indadi Utama for giving me another good testimonial of an effective training!

决心这个鬼东西~2007大马猛男选前奏随笔

hh3a.jpg大马猛男选又来了。像往年一样,今年又赴好朋友《时尚男人》与《新潮》杂志的应邀到猛男们的宣传摄影棚进行特辑制作与采访,本来应该很兴奋的,但自卑的心情又不禁轮了兴奋的班。已经第三年了,听那些可恶的猛男说他们只用三个月就可以健出一副好身材,
我三年了反而越来越”丰满”,有时候真的想把自己拉去打靶!Bang! Bang! Bang!

今年的猛男们还是得经过重重的考验。首先是帅选。然后进入摄影棚拍宣传照。化妆、访问、接受录影等。30个猛男的宣传特辑分别用两天筹备完成。由于不便透露太多消息,就此让大家目睹一点背后花絮吧!详情请留意10月份的《时尚男人》杂志内容。

hh2a.jpg每年看到一群的猛男总是说要下定决心健身减肥,又不是没有瘦过,但是不知道为什么决心迷路到哪里去了。来自杂志编辑的好朋友~美女Jasmine和市场部的Victor总是没有灰心的叫我要健身减肥。说到这两个瓜也真让我讨厌极了。一个将近四十的美女,尽然带着二三十岁脸孔与身材到处跑,
还有了一个英俊潇洒的模特儿男友John。这个John也很是过份,自己拥有模特儿般的身材面貌,还整天叫我出去品尝美食,真的真的好过份!还有这个Victor也不差,还说要找我出来吃咖喱鱼头,身材也是越来越好。你们全部可是人啊?!怎么他妈的那么爱吃,外在条件还是那么棒?真是有种

决心这个鬼东西真的很残酷。有人找到了捉着不放,有人不知道哪里去找,有人找到了又好像我那样把它放生。这些人到底是从什么鬼地方找到的?为什么我找到了又不见了。到底现在死去哪里啊?

hh1a.jpg最讨厌的就是,这些猛男的入选者有些还是我的旧朋友。天啊!你们怎么你变成这样?你们怎么认出了我?你们为什么说我胖了?你们也不是胖了吗?一块一块的肌肉,不觉得难看吗?你们全部统统应该瘦的像我一样!

记得我以前学院的学生出了一个鬼点子要我这个老师减肥。他们问我要不要把我现在的照片放到布告栏上,然后把我的减肥计划公布天下。每当来到学校就激励我,帮我喊口号。注意:是每个学生见到我都要那么做!其实我知道这个计划根本难不倒他们。我在学院拿了最受欢迎老师奖,我知道所有的学生都认识我,要是这个计划落实了,他们一定不放过我向我轰炸!但是为了尊重我的同意,他们还是让我决定了再这么做。

我最后说:老师已经进健身房了,不必操心。他们不信,还说放学后陪我健身去!唉,老师骗了你们,老师对不起你们了。

决心哪里去了?我发现其实一直都在。上天已经派了很多决心使者帮我,就我自己不争气。我发誓,我决定:吃了今天最后一餐再减肥!

我好像无药可救了。妈的。

自奖自爽~2007大马中文部落格祭观后感

很多第一次搞颁奖礼搞垮了,一定以没有经验为由。我看到的2007大马中文部落格祭的呈现,反而是缺乏策划与彩排之作,精彩不精彩暂时不谈。说的透彻一些,兴起要搞颁奖礼的头脑,脑海该有一些概念才是。只能说:这是一场有概念没意念的搞作。

念头出来的,就一定有搞作成功的意念。先不谈什么颁奖的透明度,因为在一个还没有获得大众认同的初生之犊颁奖礼,获奖的标准应该不会有人质疑;况且大家只是抱着自己为博客的身份参与颁奖礼聚会,开心自爽就好。但是high到连颁奖礼的mood都feel不到,肯定不是开心自爽所要付出的代价。

我还带了一个一星期前的才成为博客的朋友,也带着平常心去赴一场颁奖礼。到了颁奖礼的一半,我的朋友不经意用广东话面向我说:“依个么嘢颁奖来噶?有无求其D啊?好似细蚊仔玩泥沙咁!” 我想他的平常心不见了。

bloggercon01.jpg其实也难怪的,没有期待可能本就是大家的心情,可是把连最基本的平常心都可以让我们陷入谷底,我看的确应该检讨:

1. 颁奖礼的荧幕上应该附上提名部落的url与屏幕展示获奖部落的网页,我想大家都想看看这些提名与获奖的部落格。

2. 主席与筹委可以穿的盛装一点吗?还有,八卦标志的衣服没想象中好玩。获奖者的服装比筹委更尊重场面。

3. 为什么主席等筹委都整晚在舞台走来走去?颁奖礼的走位不应该任意的上下台。给来宾们、赞助商们一些出场与离场的规律感好吗?

4. 筹委会不要表演娱兴节目好吗?如果颁奖礼有士气的话,我想找嘉宾艺人友谊演出应该不是问题。

5. 可以安排工作人员协调一下吗?你们的场地安排连观众中途早退都要穿过舞台前面离场,整个场面好像的pasar malam这样!

6. 筹委会成员,不要老是叫那两个人代表领奖好吗?连司仪都说这些代表领奖的面目很熟悉,这种感觉好像举办当局自奖自爽似的。头痛!

7. 给入围者一些荣誉感好吗?VIP、观众席与入围者席到底是分开还是没有?

8. 可以准备一个讲台让获奖者致词吗?

bloggercon02.jpg当然,一些地方还是可取的,就例如主席的序幕带场,叫大家公开部落的相互交流不错,但是掀开序幕后就不要那么频频出场了。肚皮舞不错,但是好像与颁奖礼没有关系。两位主持人的幽默从容不错,不温不火,我想他们也应当这样了。灯光不错,那里是剧场,所以灯光音响不成问题。

最后要给予高度评价的,是海报;海报设计把赛会的富丽堂皇成功掀起,但是实际上要叫海报沉重了!有种

一场用心的草创,但是不操心的策划。嗯。。。我想应该“又是第一次没有经验”吧?!博客聚与颁奖礼的分别,到底我们捉到了吗?


你的国家快乐吗?

英国智囊机构”新经济学基金会”公布了一项调查结果,他们根据”快乐星球指数“在世界178个国家和地区作了调查,发现南太平洋岛国瓦努阿图是地球上最快乐的国家。真是令人大跌眼镜。瓦努阿图是一个南太平洋岛国,以旅游业为主,人口不到21万,人均GDP不超过三千美元,远远低于工业发达国家。

据介绍,”快乐星球指数”是根据消费水平、国民平均寿命以及快乐满足的程度来评比的,而不是用一般的国民收入或国民生产总值等国家财富指数来评比。评比这项指数的目的是想显示生活好坏与否,不见得与高消费水平有关。换句话说,快乐与否跟有没有钱没有直接关系。

happyglobe_new.jpg先来看一下全球最快乐的10个国家:1.瓦努阿图,2.哥伦比亚,3.哥斯达黎加,4.多米尼加,5.巴拿马,6.古巴,7.洪都拉斯,8.危地马拉,9.萨尔瓦多,10.圣文森特和格林纳丁斯。

调查结果显示,生活在富裕国家的人并不见得很快乐,请看一下八国集团成员的排名:66.意大利,81.德国,95.日本,108.英国,111.加拿大,129.法国,150.美国,172.俄罗斯。
 

亚洲方面,排名最前的是越南,排在第12位,其它国家和地区分别为:17.菲律宾,23.印度尼西亚,31.中国,32.泰国,44.马来西亚,62.印 度,84.台湾,88.香港,95.日本,102.韩国,112.巴基斯坦,131.新加坡。大马排名比较前,而新加坡则成为了亚洲最不快乐的国家。

再看一下全球最不快乐的10国家:169.土库曼斯坦,170.赤道几内亚,171 .莱索托,172.俄罗斯,173.爱沙尼亚,174.乌克兰,175.刚果,176.布隆迪,177.斯威士兰,178.津巴布韦。

从上面的排名看出,排在前10位的国家都是小国家,大部分在美洲,剩下的是岛国,他们不算贫穷,但也谈不上富裕,他们既没有中东国家丰富的石油资源,也没 有北欧国家良好的福利制度,更没有八国集团强大的生产力,但他们却是全球最快乐的国家。再看看排名最后的10个国家,其中6个是非洲贫困国家,4个是前苏 联加盟共和国。

这一切说明了什么?如果说富裕未必能使人快乐的话,那么贫困和剧变就更容易使人忧愁。最后想请教一下各位:人若想快乐,到底需要些什么?这个调查是不是很”有种“呢?

你在哪个国家?你觉得你的国家快乐吗?你呢?
