Please find my suggestions as noted below:
  • Plan for a series of sessions .
  • Decide a map including the ideas that you want to drive .
  • Initially plan for sessions with your content. Then leave a thought or a topic even a brainstorming case to be taken next week.
  • Find an evangelist in your team who would like to take that following session. Eventually involve everyone.
  • It entirely depends on the office environment , whether a class room based program would work more than a idea platform or open sessions.
  • If you have a strong leadership, a platform for knowledge exchange would create a much stronger impact than a class room session.

Here are few videos which you may consider showing your team.
  1. Tony Robins : What we do , why we do and how can we do it better
  2. Brian Tracy : Boost your productivity
  3. The unorganised manager - This is a must watch DVD series. Every professional should watch it to make the most of whatever they are delivering. This was referred to me by Samvedan . I completely vouch for it. Most of the time, nothing at work progress, just because we perceive it in that way. Developing a new paradigm can boost morale and productivity.

At the end of the day , the employees would be happy when you have removed the bone of contention for them. there are situations where we can solve all the work related problems. However few are beyond it . Concerns such as low pay or comparatively lower brand can create constant dissatisfaction. You might be able to re-design your salary structure, even so it would be within your budget. In such tight situation, its best to regroup and refocus towards the most positive aspect at work.

Wish you all the best !

Dear Ms. Kavita Garg,
After going through your thread, honestly speaking "i was laughing" because i found childish approach. Kindly don't mistake me but, it is the fact.

I should appreciate your maturity levels, enough to differentiate between SUCCESS and FAILURES(your company's) which you had narrated in your thread.

I suggest you sincerely, not to look deep into your organisation which will derail you. Kindly do concentrate on your responsibilities. Read books, gain your knowledge and look for better company else you can decide whatever the best you feel for your future..

To understand stress, try to understand yourself, your strength, your weakness or do SWOT ANALYSIS. Then you give a call to Mr. Dinesh, i am sure, he'll guide you to the best of his knowledge.

Do consider, whatever Ms. (Cite Contribution) wrote to you. This is how i am promoting myself "I do have practical solution for every problem, i only individuals to approach me with full of trust and faith in ALMIGHTY" because whatever i do, i do with the grace of ALMIGHTY.

kindly do improve your writing skills as there are grammatical mistakes including tenses.

Forgive me, if i had hurt your feelings........May ALMIGHTY bless you always...

With profound regards

Dear Friends
Here I would like to tell one thing.
There will surely be tension in the work, but it should not get transformed into our body.
To Reduce the stress one must plan properly. If the target set is for one month, one must analyse the same in every week what is the target and what is the percentage he has achieved, what is the action plan to achieve the left out target, how one can improve the productivity alongwith achieving the target.
If they plan properly any target can be achievable;
All the best

Dear Kavita,

Stress Management programs will be effective for those who really put their efforts and strive to do something better.

But in your case its different, employees been given that leisure & comfort to pin point the management. I some how feel your management wants to build open culture in your organisation. Before answering to your question I would like you to analyse few things from your end.

Does your organisation have set the Business Objectives for this financial year?
Does your second line are enough matured to understand the business and take the ownership? Are they aware of the milestones that organisation need to achieve?
Is you management or your second line communicating to their team about the projects that company is bagging or going to bag?
Does your organisation have career progression chart? If so how it is been induced into the system?

Secondly please identify those who are totally disengaged with the work. As it goes "ideals mind is devils workshop". Educate your management if they are not aware of the above mentioned questions. I see there is nothing to do with stress management.

This is a common problem with startup & growing companies.

Please do call me on +919849729133 for further assistance.

Hi Kavitha
If they are not meeting deadlines it could also be due to lack of motivation or other issues which are blocking them. It would be good to have a one on one chat with some employees and get thier feedback.
There are many technques for stress management and motivation which can boost productivity

Dear Shaik Abdul

Yes there are

1) In my workshops I teach employees the power of positive thinking. Also how thoughts create reality. Most people have more negative thoughts than positive ones Eg: I dont want to be poor. They focus on poverty rather than richness/abundance. What we focus on is what we receive .. this is called the Law of Attraction used by successful people like Jim Carrey etc . When employees realize the power of thier thoughts they change their attititude. They become more positive and this creates a more motivated environment to work.

2) Goal setting - I ask the management to share the orginizational vision with the employees. Most vision statements are only in the website and dont reach employees.

Companies whose employees understand the mission and goals enjoy a 29 percent greater return than other firms (Watson Wyatt Work Study)

Also employees should be encouraged to look at their short term and long term goals.

3) Also techniques can be taught which empower employees to handle negative emotions. Negative emotions could be due to inter personal issues in the team, problems with the manager or even personal issues. Most people stay stuck in the negative emotions and wait for it to go away. This causes de motivated employees.

This is not needed. There are effective techniques which can free you from negative emotions. Eg : Emotional Freedom Technqiues (EFT)

These are a few points and there are a few more. i can send you more details if you are interested.

Hope this clarifies
