THE NIGERIAN RECESSION AS A CATALYST FOR GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT. The Ebonyi Rice story:

It’s no news that 2016 was one of the worst years for the Nigerian economy, the country reaped its reward for ignoring previous lucrative sectors and concentrating primarily on revenue from the Oil Sector, consequently when Oil prices plummeted the Nigerian economy followed suit.

The Government scrambled around playing the blame game and rolling out unsuccessful policies that further worsened the situation, at the peak of the crisis prices of commodities shot up to the point that it became unbearable to even prepare a pot of stew for a low income family.

How to tactfully and constructively disagree with your boss.

The best teams thrive on productive disagreement. Here’s how to plead your case respectfully.

Whatever your feelings toward your boss, the fact is that he or she got to that position because of some combination of experience, expertise, and training. In other words, they earned it. That doesn’t mean you’ll always agree with the decisions your boss makes. Sometimes you’ll even be certain your boss is wrong–either on something small and harmless or much more consequential.

The 3 Leader Profiles You MUST Avoid

 

Written by John Eades

The feeling in my stomach was sickening. At first, I sat there in slight disbelief with the simple thought running through my head over and over, “How in the world could my team possibly rate me like this?” As I continued through my leader report, the feeling didn’t get better as I read, “He micromanages a lot” and “He treats people differently based on who you are.” Candidly, it was hard to read. As I sat back in my chair fighting off feelings of anger and disappointment, I saw the words a mentor had spoken to me that I had written on a notecard:

I recently overheard someone reply, when asked about her holiday weekend, “It was successful. My New Year’s resolution is to overeat on every major holiday. I figure I’m going to do it anyway; why not make it a goal I can actually keep?” I had to laugh. It made me think about the goals we create in our lives and in our businesses.

Many fall into one of two major categories. The first category is goals we set that we have a 95 percent chance of accomplishing–mostly because we have done it before, so the likelihood is high that we’ll succeed. (Our overeater above almost didn’t pig out because she was feeling poorly. But she pulled herself together and gorged.) The other category is goals where there is a 95 percent degree of uncertainty that we’ll accomplish them, and we have never done it before, but we would like to.

Article by

Kim Perell CEO of Amobee

I’m the CEO of a leading digital marketing company with 800 employees in 21 offices worldwide, but that’s not my most important role. My most important role is something more personal: being the CEO of my own life.

You have as much control over your own life and success as a CEO has over the success of his or her company — often even more. You have the ability and power to make decisions in every area of your life. You are responsible for your happiness, your friendships, and your job. If you don’t like them and want to change them — you can.

Often, people do not take as much of a conscious, organized approach when it comes to managing their personal lives as they do their professional lives. They let others control their life, success, and happiness. This is a missed opportunity.
