Whether you are in a large company or a small one, you can actually observe the fall in morale amongst workers who continue to grind on their unfulfilling jobs. Technology is somewhere at the heart of this problem and instead of making things easier and better, it is creating a sense of isolation. People can now work from their homes, and even when they are working together in the office, face to face interactions have been cut down to the barest minimum. There is rarely a tight connection to be seen anymore.
This can also be observed with social media. Communication is now instant and more accessible than ever, but they lack all of the body language and emotions that give the discussion of any substance. This lack accounts for about 50% of human interactions and communication.
The outcome of this sort of environment is that workers can now deliver on all of their functions, roles, and responsibilities but they don’t get to experience that sense of community, and this can have a negative effect on their overall productivity over a long period.
As an entrepreneur and business thinker, you have a responsibility to find new ways of improving the morale of your team and still make the best use of what technology has to offer. Some key actions must be taken to achieve this goal, and some of them are discussed here.
When there is a dearth of connection, work immediately begins to feel like a huge chore and this impedes creativity and innovation. The first step towards a fulfilling job is that you have a sense of belonging and this is fostered via face to face interactions and social activities that help everybody get a better sense of the people they are working with.
When your team members find this connection, they understand themselves better, and they can relate to deeper levels based on their goals, aspirations, fears, and challenges.
You and your team must ensure you find the best ways to tap into all of the satisfaction and fulfillment that your goals can bring. This infuses a sense of purpose in everybody. There needs to be a higher purpose, and one of them is catering to the needs of your customers. Without your customers, there is no business. Plain and simple. Beyond this also, find ways to get team participation in external efforts and activities that foster the growth and development of your organization.
There also needs to be a shift in the attention we give to productivity. A lot more focus should be placed on accomplishments and achievements and not just the hours that are put in. set attainable goals and find ways to eliminate as many obstacles as you can so your employees can get to fulfillment a lot faster. When you identify a team member who is damaging morale or not performing up to standard, find a way to remove him from that team so he doesn’t stand in the way of the larger body.
You will begin to see an instant uptick in the overall achievements of your team, and you have a happier workforce at the end of everything.
President Trump, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau have officially signed the reexamined North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
The new deal, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), was signed between the nations on the sidelines of the G-20 meeting in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
“It’s been long and hard. We’ve taken a lot of barbs and a little abuse, but we got there,” Trump said of the agreement.
Now that Democrats – rather than Trump’s Republicans – will seize control of the House of Representatives come January, official endorsement for this new pact could turn out to be an uphill task in the United States. Currently, the Democrats and their cohorts in the work development are requesting changes to the understanding.
Trump hailed the amended trade treaty, but Trudeau was more estimated, saying there was still work to be done and called on Trump to expel steel and aluminum levies on the U.S. forces on Canada and Mexico. Trudeau additionally referenced the ongoing scaling down by General Motors in North America as an overwhelming blow. Trump said nothing as regards the activity misfortunes.
Later in the G-20 meetings, Trump will turn to another high-profile trade crisis, when he has dinner on Saturday with Chinese President Xi Jinping. Trump had ditched another top meeting, with Russian President Vladimir Putin, over Russia’s seizure of Ukrainian vessels, before touching base in Argentina – infusing the show into the ongoing dealings.
Trump started off the Friday with a friendly meeting at the Casa Rosada with Argentine President Mauricio Macri, a long-term business associate. They postured for photographs and discussed personal issues and national concerns.

U.S. intelligence authorities have inferred that the Saudi crown prince must have at any rate known about the plot to execute Khashoggi, who was incredulous of the Saudi royal family. Legislators in both ends have approached Trump to stay away from the heir apparent as chastisement.
Be that as it may, Trump publicized his choice to successfully give the prince ago for the sake of “America First,” making tremendously misrepresented cases of Saudi military conventions and interests in the United States. The president likewise sees Saudi Arabia as a balance to Iranian impact in the Middle East.
Trump invariably gets a blended response at social affairs because of his immense dislike for worldwide arrangements, propensity for offending partners and his “America First” approach.
After pulling the United States out of the milestone Paris Climate Accord and the Iran nuclear pact, President Trump has cuffed levies on the European Union, proposing that he might be disposed to pull the U.S. out of NATO if member countries don’t fundamentally support their defense expenses.
