Taping The Power Of Diversity in 21St Century Organisations

“I believe in the power of storytelling. Stories open our hearts to a new place, which opens our minds, which often leads to action.” Melinda Gates

The goal of this article is to bring attention to the need of 21st century leaders and managers adapted to the challenges of Globalization. This is not an academic argumentative with a lot of statistics and general conclusions. It is rather an attempt to demonstrate the relevance of cross-cultural challenges based on storytelling.

Most examples are driven from observations with almost 10 different organizations1 including Churches, NGO, Schools, Business Companies in 3 countries known for their cultural diversity: Cameroon, Uganda and America. Therefore the ideas developed in this content could be tested in any other organization in a multicultural milieu.

The 21st century leader/manager has to demonstrate new skills in other to successfully provide quality direction to a team that is more and more diverse and complex.

In several organizations (Schools, Hospitals, Churches, Warehouses, etc…) there is an increasing number of people from different cultural background who have in common the required skills to grow the business. The ultimate goal of every one is to make enough satisfactory earning to prosper while contributing to the company’s growth.

In this context, leadership could be very challenging mostly if the company is not prepared to solve the problems that rise in the cross-cultural milieu. The obvious results are a lot of wasted time and money in addition to negative discrimination that could be avoided if little knowledge about cross-culture was added to the leader’s curriculum.

I met a manager who said something quite interesting. I wish every leader does this simple activity. Every time this manager travels in a new country, she reads the book “When Cultures Collide-Leading Across Cultures” -by Richard D. Lewis- on the plane to learn a little bit about the culture. She always has the book with her, even in her office.

What if the 21st century leader takes some few minutes every day to read about the cultural diversity of his team members?

For example, learning how to say “good morning” in one of your staff languages could make him feel accepted and more efficient than your think. Duplicating this for each of your team members could seem meaningless but this is the perfect image of who the current leader is supposed to be.

On the other hand, working in a company for 2 years and being asked one day by your boss “where are you from again?” could be the most frustrating experience one goes through.

Could you share your experience of working across cultures and how it shaped your skills as a cross-cultural leader?

The Power of Small Achievements!

The Power of Small Achievements!

This week has been the publication of the 100 th article on seed4future.com in almost 2 years.

With the approach of thanksgiving , one of the first things I am gratefull to God is the ability to kept writing all this time despite the many challenges.

My goal is to keep writing for the next 8 years whatever happens.

This means I would have published 500 articles in 10 years. I will be 44 years old by that time.

Considering an average of 800 words for each article, I would produced 400000  words in 10 years. An equivalent of 10 books of 100 pages average.

As we are preparing to enter year 2018, I am writing to encourage you to start something how small you estimate it.

I started with no experience on blogging. I only had the passion for self-development contents and the desire to communicate my experience with the greatest number of people.

This is where it led me:

– 100 articles writen by me, co- writers and writers from Cameroon, Uganda, Burundi and India.

– Worlwide visibility in 123 countries in 5 continents.Countries.jpg

– More than 20 000 viewers and visitors on my blog.

– Free Self and Organizational Development Training in Netherland, Uganda, Kenya, USA, India and Cameroon.

– 4-Ebooks published on blookup.com

If the passion for something good and valuable burns in your heart , do it with the little resources you have and grow it with hard work and perseverance.

That’s what I did and I am determined to keep writing!

Start somewhere! Do it and keep doing it!!!

Nouvelles Approches pour Révolutionner le Système Financier International.

Nouvelles Approches pour Révolutionner le Système Financier International.

La mondialisation entraîne l’interconnexion économique des nations par un système financier international. Le système financier international décrit l’ensemble des opérations financières sur le plan international, tandis que le système monétaire international gère les relations de change et de crédit entre les pays.

Un système financier est constitué d’unités institutionnelles et de marchés qui entretiennent des relations complexes en vue de mobiliser des fonds à des fins de placement et de fournir des facilités pour le financement de l’économie mondiale.

Les institutions financières sont en majorité des entreprises ou des administrations publiques ayant le droit en leur nom propre de posséder des actifs, de souscrire des passifs, de s’engager dans des activités économiques et d’effectuer des transactions avec d’autres unités.

L’on y retrouve aussi les institutions collectrices de dépôts (ICD), où l’on peut investir ou emprunter des fonds, les Banques centrales émettant la monnaie fiduciaire, les banques commerciales, les sociétés holding, les autres sociétés d’intermédiation financière, les gestionnaires de fonds spéculatifs, etc…

Or, loin de sécuriser les échanges et de produire une prospérité partagée, cette coopération économique et monétaire génère de graves crises.

Par exemple, en 2007, les familles américaines dont les revenus stagnaient furent incapables de rembourser les prêts immobiliers non garantis. Il s’en suivit en 2008 la crise immobilière des subprimes. Elle devint financière et bancaire lorsque les banques insolvables ne purent plus accorder des crédits. D’où la faillite de Lehman Brothers, dont les répercussions plongèrent les Etats Unis dans une crise économique sévère.

 Quant à la Grèce, la  banque d’investissement Goldman Sachs lui proposa de mauvais instruments de mesure qui masquèrent l’ampleur réelle de sa dette. En fin 2009, cette banque commit un délit  en révélant à certains de ses clients les vrais chiffres de l’endettement grec, ce qui leur permit d’attaquer  ce pays au moyen de la spéculation.

Selon la journaliste économique Myret Zaki, les taux d’intérêts de la dette  grecque explosèrent de7% au taux exorbitant de 20%. Aussitôt, les marchés paniquèrent, et la crise contamina toute l’économie du pays.

Ainsi, les Etats s’endettèrent lourdement pour renflouer les banques, et devinrent incapables d’assurer leurs missions sociales envers les citoyens subissant chômage et appauvrissement. Pour s’en sortir, certaines banques ponctionnent leurs clients en prélevant leurs comptes.

En plus, les programmes d’ajustement structurels imposés par les institutions de Bretton Woods (FMI et Banque Mondiale) sont parfois inefficaces. Somme toute, le fait pour un pays d’avoir sa dette cotée en bourse le rend totalement vulnérable aux attaques des spéculateurs internationaux. Désormais, l’Etat semble l’otage du système bancaire globalisé.

Au regard de ce qui précède, le système financier international est-il le garant du bon fonctionnement de l’économie libérale globalisée ou un instrument de domination ? Comment trouver des solutions appropriées à ce problème ?

A ce titre, l’Islande et le Botswana sont des exemples de pays ayant réussi à sortir de la crise. En 4 ans d’austérité,  l’Islande a remboursé l’intégralité de sa dette au FMI, évitant ainsi la faillite.

Elle affiche un taux de croissance de 3.5 %, pour seulement  4% de chômage, un  PIB de 53 918 USD/habitant, 100%   d’alphabétisation, et une espérance de vie de 82.06 ans. La hausse des impôts a été compensée par une dévaluation de sa monnaie. Le système bancaire a été assaini et les exportations diversifiées par les nouvelles technologies.

Avec un taux moyen de croissance de 7,7 % sur plusieurs années le Botswana  représente le nouveau miracle africain, car ayant réussi à multiplier les revenus de ses citoyens par 11 entre 1960 et 2007. Ce taux de croissance est de loin supérieur à celui de Singapour (6,4 %) et de la Corée du Sud (6,6 %) sur la même période.

Les professeurs Daron Acemoglu et Simon Johnson (2001) attribuent cette réussite au bon usage des ressources naturelles, au caractère égalitaire de la société botswanaise, à la qualité de ses institutions dotées d’un taux de transparence de 6,1/10 ; ce qui en fait le pays le moins corrompu d’Afrique.

En résumé, relancer l’économie nécessite l’affranchissement du fardeau de la dette, l’assainissement du système bancaire, la réduction des procédures spéculatives, la séparation des banques de dépôt des banques d’affaires, l’amélioration de la protection sociale, et la gestion durable des ressources.

Boosting Your Business With Digital Marketing

Boosting Your Business With Digital Marketing

HELLO, MY NAME IS HERVÉ-BORIS NGATÉ.

I noticed I have been in the business writing for almost 2 years and I would like to introduce myself to my readers who don’t know me. I would also like to share with you some of my plans for 2018 that could help you become the successful person you want to be.

I have written, help write and published 94 articles on my blog http://www.seed4future.com in the last 21 months. I also published from those blog posts 4 E-books on various subjects like French and Cross-culture, Cross-Cultural Management, Organizational and personal development, writing management and Entrepreneurship.

What started as a simple passion for online marketing became an amazing self-development project viewed and read now in 121 countries in 5 continents through social media channels like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Google Adwords, Gmail, and Yahoo. I currently have almost 20000 viewers and visitors on my blog and more than 400000 on all the other networks.

After nine months of writing articles to help French learners in Alliance Française and several international organizations in Kampala, I was solicited by the Alliance Française to train teachers on how to build a blog to improve French learners’ skills.

Some of my contents were used for direct internet marketing towards organizational, personal development and writing management for entrepreneurs in Uganda, Kenya, Cameroon, and America. I  also used blog posts on language learning to empower young immigrants to easily integrate English.

I write in French or English depending on my audience. But 75% of my recent articles are in English due to my move to America.

Blogging is a volunteer activity I enjoy doing to help people grow their skills, knowledge, and attitudes. Actually, I made no money with my writing talent but I developed outstanding skills during 21 months of blogging that I share with you in my article entitled “The Power Of Transferable Skills“.

Next year, I would like to turn my skills into a rewarding business and I want you to be the first to benefit from it.

Coaching. Through a flexible and extensive diversity of programs, whether you are a new venture or an expert who want to reach people in other cultures, you can rely on my years of cross-cultural experiences in three countries to grow your business.

You Making More Money By Talking!?

You Making More Money By Talking!?

I am writing this article to help you make more money by doing nothing, but talking! Don’t you believe it?

Let me introduce myself before I make my offer to you.

My name is Hervé-Boris Ngaté.

I have written, help write and published 94 articles on my blog https://seed4future.com/ in the last 21 months. I also published from those blog posts 4 E-books on various subjects like French and Cross-culture, Cross-Cultural Management, Organizational and Personal Development, Writing Management and Entrepreneurship.

It first started as a simple passion for writing, and then later became an amazing self-development project viewed and read now in 121 countries on 5 continents through social media like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Google Ad words, Gmail, and Yahoo. I currently have almost 20,000 viewers and visitors on my blog and more than 400,000 on all the other networks.

After nine months of writing articles to help French learners in Alliance Française and several international organizations in Kampala, I was invited by the Alliance Française to train teachers on how to build a blog to improve French learners’ skills.

Some of my articles were used for direct organizational and personal development, and writing management for entrepreneurs in Uganda, Kenya, Cameroon, and USA. I also blogged on learning languages to facilitate new immigrant’s immersion in English speaking areas.

So that’s a little bit about me.

LET’S TALK BUSINESS

Imagine that you talk or tell your story for one hour every week. My job is to record you and publish you to millions of readers and viewers on social media.

Once you become famous, your expertise is proven, and then people will show interest on the pertinence of your experience.

The tip is that for an hour of expertise you’ll share, between $25 and $350 will get into your pocket per hour! You will make so much money by talking only 30 minutes or an hour a week at a convenient time scheduled for you.

The other tip is that the amount of knowledge you’ll generate will become a book you’ll sell to millions of people.

Thinking that you’ll pay me $25 an hour every week may scare you because you are not sure you are making the right investment.

THE POWER BEHIND YOUR INVESTMENT

According to researchers, you need a proven experience of at least 2 years to be considered as a master in your area. After 5 years of tracking results, you become all-stars professional with the distinctive outcome no one will ever doubt.

So allow time to speak for you. Settle a regular day during the week where you’ll talk for an hour to record your experience. We could schedule an appropriate time and place for the 30 minutes record of your story.

The rest of 30 minutes is left to me to edit your talk and publish it.

You don’t need to say everything on every of your patients. You can use a block note to write down key words or key ideas that will make you easily remember what to say during your record talk.

If you don’t know how to make quick and easy note, I could provide a free training on how to do it in an effective and efficient way.

I could also train you on how to use the experiential learning cycle to take down notes in a powerful way. This training is free of charge and it is part of the benefits you have by enrolling to this business.

I understand you are so busy with your job that investing an additional hour to record yourself, work on editing and publishing your content could be very exhausting. That’s why the only thing you have to do is sit down, and tell me your experience.

You can be doing it while relaxing or doing something fun since I will be there to record everything.

PEOPLE ARE CRAVING FOR KNOWLEDGE WORKERS

According to Peter Drucker, one of the prophets of American economy management, America has the best-trained Nurses and Assistant nurse in the world. But unfortunately, they are very few knowledge workers in their area.

It simply means that they don’t produce new knowledge to improve the quality care to the patient. The reason is that they are not focused on their unique jobs but do several things at the same time.

The first consequence is the loss of millions of dollars by families, hospitals, care centers, and the government.

The second consequence is the loss of qualified professionals trained in the US system but who leave and go to work elsewhere because they want to be focused on their jobs.

The last consequence is the increasing early death of many patients in care centers due to lack of new knowledge to help patients.

Listen to the story of Lora, a CNA trainee.

As we were working with elderly people, I was giving food to one of them. He was actually a famous preacher of the gospel. Near his bed was a radio tuned to a gospel station and no one was allowed to change the station.

As I was feeding him, I asked him if he was a child of God because I was one too. I told him I was praying for his recovery and wish that he goes back to his ministry. As I said it, he held me tight.

When he did it, I remained sited and kept singing. A GNA assigned to me became critical, telling me that the man is aggressive and could harm me. The patient sought and I understood that she was not telling the truth.

The other trainee was astonished because the patients never talk with anybody. I felt emotionally overwhelmed and at the same time happy, because I could positively impact the life of this old man.

As we were living the room, the lady told me that a GNA has 14 patients to take care of every day. There is not enough time to have deep conversations with each patient as I did. And when she goes back home, she is so tired that she needs special care and rest.

I understood that I could not reach my full potential as GNA or CNA in a nursing center but that I need a one on one care.” (Lora, CNA trainee)

I am sure the story is clear enough to help you understand how a care experience could influence one career decision. Since my goal is not to make an analysis of the story, I allow you to make your personal judgment and learn from Lora’s experience.

If every nurse or assistant nurse had the opportunity to generate new knowledge and skills on his/her daily tasks, imagine the amount of knowledge produce after one, two or 5 years!!!

You can be that person who will make the difference by sharing details of your practices to solve new challenges.

TIME FOR CASH FLOW!

By making within $25 to $350 an hour as an expert in your area, you’ll be making thousands of dollars a month. This is surely far much more than what you will make by working for someone else.

Then the reward of building a name, a brand and a story you can share with your relatives, your colleagues and people around the world. It’s easier to publish E-books or books once enough materials had been gathered through numerous recording of your experience.

You cannot miss such an opportunity to value your skills and to be part of those who make history by writing their story to help others.

Your responsibility is to speak for an hour every week!

Mine is to write or record you, and then edit your speech to publish it with you as the author and finally build a strong and powerful evidence of your expertise that prepares you to be the coach people will crave for in two years.

You can start right now!

LET’S START NOW!

Contact me right now through one of the following ways and request your personal time to be recorded.

Email: seed.42f@gmail.com

Phone: (240) 361-7919

I am right available with high-quality materials to record every detail of your amazing journey that prepares you the move to the next enjoyable level in your life.

Sincerely!

How Serving Others Makes You a Success!!!

“Oh! Uncle, I succeeded at the diplomatic school exam! God is wonderful” shouted Ababa, one of the numerous youths I counseled in Cameroon between 2000 and 2015.  For 15 years I invested time, the little money I had and all I knew as advices to empower   secondary’s and universities students. Looking back now, I realize that many of them became successful people each at his or her level.

In Uganda, I was helping a young entrepreneur to boost his business for free. These are his own words regard our collaboration: “When I came you asked me how many clients I plan to gain per week and day. It was challenging. I decided to add more clients a week. The business grew with more than 52 clients in less than 6 weeks because I said to myself: “I will add a client each day; I have to make things work!” Before we met, I had never thought of investing myself in having clients. I was not under the pressure though I knew I have to do marketing.”
These 2 examples opened my eyes to a new vision of being successful: SERVING OTHERS.

Imagine that you serve someone 10 hours every week. And from the 10 hours of service, the person can make an average of $ 200.00 This means that every month, you put $ 800.00 in the person’s pocket.

Imagine now that the service is provided to 10 people every day. It brings us to $ 8000.00 of productivity. After a year, the service provided creates a net value of $ 96000.00. If the 10 people are working on a product that brings $100.00 of benefice per unit and 500 units are produced from a couple of service hours, you make the company earn $ 18250 000. 00 a year.

What? With only 2 hours of free services a day? Maybe the money does not enter your pocket but my making others rich, you are the true source of their prosperity.

Do you participate in volunteer activities? Do you associate doing good deeds with, happiness, good health and wellbeing? Learn the benefits of serving others.Image credit: healthyplace.com

Another way of seeing this is voluntary services rendered to communities. Every single hour invested in a voluntary service can be estimated financially. But investing in others creates new values for your personal development.
You can start your first step as a United Nations Volunteer to offer your skills at https://www.onlinevolunteering.org/en.

According to motivational speakers like Brian Tracy, personal development is the first key for success in life. The tip for personal development is serving others. Every time you think about how to help someone, you exercise the skills and the abilities to do so.
It makes you learn new things, meet new people and become so forth more intelligent and creative. The process can take time, but one day, you’ll successfully blow amazingly.

Ford became rich because he was looking for a way to make a car available to every middle class american. Bill Gates dreamed of a society where every home will have a PC unit. Write down a personal dream to see other succeed and start working on it today.

Serving others or thinking of growing others could be very challenging. At times,you might seem stupid for helping oders for free or see yourself meaningless when you invest without appreciations. Depending on where one is serving, mockery and humiliation are part of the process. You see less money in your pocket too; actually, you are even spending your own money, time and energy to empower others.

Empowering others could be done through solutions writing. Starting a blog or get published are very easy now; WordPress.com or Blogger.com are free publishing tools to help develop your solutions providing skills through writing.

If solutions writing passionately motivate you and you don’t have time for publishing, send me your article and I will publish for free. This could be your first step towards your future success.

My Experience, Her Experience

Investing in Young Girls is investing in preparing a brighter future!More voices should rise to advocate for these vulnerable groups.

The Wallflower

I was only 12 when i joined secondary school; something of rare occurrence in my country, Uganda. I started nursery school pretty early and i was enrolled in one of the early learner’s classes for just one school term and then quickly initiated into Primary school after 3 months of being in nursery school. So i did not have the time most of my counterparts did to make friends and meaningfully engage with others in the school.

When it was time to sit for my Advanced level examinations in high school, the teacher in-charge of registration said i was not eligible for registration because i was not up to age to sit for those exams; this almost sparked a squabble between my parents and the school administration. Thank God, it was amicably resolved and i was allowed to sit for my exams.

Prior to that, being a girl and experiencing…

THE ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS  CAN SAVE YOUR BUSINESS

THE ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS CAN SAVE YOUR BUSINESS

One of the most controversial but fascinating election of the American history! Donald Trump is now the 45th US president after a campaign, qualified by some as the funniest and full of verbal injuries. Though I am not interested in politics, I decide to write about a few reactions gathered on Social Medias. I just want us to ask ourselves two questions: Why and How.
I woke up at 3am on November 9th, and went directly to Facebook to check the result and ….what? Donald Trump won the elections? I woke up my wife and told her and she was voiceless…Straight to CNN for update news and we could not sleep till the morning.
On the Internet, we could read different views on Trump’ election and I could summarize them the following (I added the “why” and “how” questions on red):

1. “When a businessman become a president! You don’t always need experience to be appointed”.

Why a business man does become a president and how did he do to convince people to vote him with no political background?

2. “I need a master degree and five years of professional experience to be considered for an entry level position and a man with no political experience can become the president of the US”.

Why do people have different professional experiences and how is that possible?

3. “Very soon it will be the end of the world”.

Why President Trump’s election is announcing the end of the world and how would that happen?

4. “Many prophecies announced Trump’s victories but there were also prophecies in favor of Hilary’s victory”.

Why did they prophesy on the next American president victory and not on the Syrian crises/ Boko haram / immigration confusion? How do we know what God says about the current world events?

5. “His first speech is very different from the campaign ones. Surely Trump will review some of his declarations concerning the wall, the illegal migrants, the Muslims and the US trade policies.”

Why has Trump’s speech changed and why are we sure he will change his position? How will he proceed to change people’s negative view of him?

6. “No matter who is the president of the US God is in Control”. Knowing that God had always appointed a leader for a reason,

why did God could have chosen Donald Trump as the US president and how is God going to use him to fulfill His glory?

7. “People are out in the streets to protest against Trump’s election. If so many people are angry of his election then who voted him?”

Why are they protesting the voice of democracy and how do the protesters expect their protest to influence the results of the election?

8. “We are waiting for Trump to fulfill his promise to remove the entire everlasting African presidents.”

Why would Trump want to remove those African leaders and how could he do it knowing that he removed his predecessor through the voice of the American voters?

I feel like stopping here! I would like us to reflect on what is happening in America with all our senses and not  just emotional excitement.

If you have answers or one answer to any of these questions ,please share with us so we can learn and move forward to prosper in our business during this season.

THE POWER OF FEEDBACK ON YOUR SUCCESS

THE POWER OF FEEDBACK ON YOUR SUCCESS

If you are working in any professional area, you will acknowledge that you would like to know how well you are performing. Feedbacks are one of the best tools to evaluate your professional outcomes, see your strengths and weaknesses, and look for ways to improve yourself.

Whether positive or negative, feedbacks are there to tell you: “Hey guy! Watch over the quality of your investment. Make sure you are not going away of your goals! Be encouraged for a good job done, but there is still work to do!”

I received eight feedbacks that were very encouraging and were like powerful fuel to push me to write more in areas I excel in.

1. “Your articles are very educative. Young bloggers of today complain a lot in their writings.”
2. “Such amounts of information in few words! It’s amazing. I see in your writings a desire to propose solutions not to complain.”
3. “What is good is that you propose solutions.”
4. “Thanks for writings that show you understand what we are going through.”
5. “You have made a lot of progress.”
6. “Leaners speaks in your article.”
7. “Your article is too academic.”
8. “You should turn your audience into customers.”

How will you feel if every week, you receive such feedbacks on your performances? For me, I was flying, and today I am flying higher.

For the last two feedbacks which were negative, I worked on writing more real life stories and adapt my post to the right audience; Academic articles should be read by scholars not lay people.

I took social marketing training and read a lot of articles on how to turn an audience into customers. I am working now on growing an audience that will become the future buyers of my books.

I encourage you to ask for feedbacks from your relatives, colleague, and neighbors and also, give feedbacks to help others improve their lives and careers.
