Employees are an investment. You’ve probably spent a lot of time training and shaping your employees, so treat them like the amazing resource they are. If you give respect, you’ll get respect, and that makes both parties feel valued.Be quick to show praiseManagers are generally pretty quick to point out when work is less than stellar. Make sure your appreciation is free-flowing when there’s a job well done. Praise can go a long way to encourage an employee and turn them into the all-star you know they can be.Give freedomWhen a task is given, allow the team to figure out the best way to accomplish it. Be available to advise, but if you want innovation and creative thinking to occur, stay out of the way. Allowing your employees to make their own decisions will help them develop as professionals.Encourage cooperationIf you want your team to come together as one, you have to encourage collaboration. Lead by example and show your team what it looks like to have each other’s backs. Always stress the importance of helping each other out, and you’ll have a team that loves their workplace and the people in it.last_img read more

Daily coronavirus cases in India near 20,000 as Mumbai extends lockdown

first_imgBut experts fear its hospitals will be unable to cope with a steep rise in cases.The western state of Maharashtra, which has reported the highest number of coronavirus cases in the country, extended its lockdown by another month until end of July, as new cases rose in key cities such as Mumbai, Pune and Aurangabad.Mumbai witnessed massive traffic jams on key roads connecting suburbs to the southern business district on Monday as authorities erected roadblocks to police new travel restrictions.Under the new rule, residents can visit markets, salons, and parks within a 2 km radius of their homes, but asked not step out of the house unnecessarily. Office-goers are exempt from the rule. India reported close to 20,000 fresh novel coronavirus cases for the second day running on Monday, as the financial hub of Mumbai extended its lockdown by a month.There were 19,459 new cases reported in the previous 24 hours, according to data from India’s federal Health Ministry released on Monday. That is down slightly from Sunday’s record of 19,906, but still sign cases in the country are yet to subside.India lags only the United States, Brazil and Russia in total cases. More than 16,000 have now died from the disease caused by the virus since the first case in India in January — low when compared to countries with similar numbers of cases.

Rodgers bench warning for Balotelli

first_img The Italy international has scored just twice in 15 appearances since his £16million summer move from AC Milan but has yet to find the net in the Premier League. With the injured Daniel Sturridge not set to return from a thigh injury for a few weeks, Raheem Sterling has been pressed into action as a central forward and although Balotelli is available again after a ban for posting a racist and anti-semitic image on social media, the best he can hope for is a place on the bench at Burnley on Boxing Day. Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli returns from suspension with a warning he may have to get used to life on the bench at Anfield. “It is something he will have to (get used to),” said Rodgers “If the team needs him from the bench then it is something he will need to become adjusted to – that is the same for every single player, not just him. “When called upon, whether starting or off the bench, you ask your players to be ready.” Performances this season have shown Balotelli is not comfortable in the lone striker role, and he does not possess the pace and intensity which Sterling and Sturridge both have when it comes to pressurising opponents on the ball. That is something which has been one of the positives in their last three performances and was evident throughout their run to second place in the league last season. “We’ve seen it isn’t really his game,” added Rodgers. “Working with Mario, we see he is someone who is better in and around the box so that level of intensity and pressing isn’t part of his game. “But you try to get the best out of the players you have and the qualities you have. That is something we will focus on. “The most important thing is Mario is available after his ban. It adds another player to our squad and another player who is available, especially with (the suspended) Fabio Borini unavailable.” A forward line of Sterling, Adam Lallana and Philippe Coutinho harried the life out of Arsenal in Sunday’s 2-2 draw at Anfield, and Rodgers believes his recent switch to 3-4-3 has helped restore something which has been lacking all season. “We are at our best when our game is aggressive,” he said. “We have had to adapt in terms of how we have played because of the personnel and it has taken the period after the Crystal Palace game (when they lost four in a row in November) when we needed to steady the ship with some solid performances. “I have always known longer-term it wouldn’t take us where we wanted to go and certainly it wouldn’t have taken us to nearly winning the league, so it was trying to find a solution in terms of regaining that intensity and tempo. “That real aggressive pressure at the top end of the field is key for us, it gives us the platform to dominate the ball. “We haven’t stumbled across a system, a lot of hours have gone into looking how we maximise the players we have and in the last three games in terms of performances we have been much closer and hopefully it will continue in that vein.” Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgIT WAS A disappointing result for the Donegal Ladies senior team in Bundoran on Sunday.In what were tough playing conditions plenty of optimism should remain for the players as some terrific periods of play showed great dominance in the game.Laois however collected maximum points from their trip to Donegal as the Leinster outfit claimed a 1-16 to 1-9 victory. Karen Guthrie scored 1-1 for Donegal early in the second half but Ciara Burke responded with a goal for Laois and that proved to be the pivotal score.The Donegal girls can take great heart from the match ahead of next weekend’s clash with Dublin.Meanwhile ‘Maith Sibh’ to Loreto Milford on their Ulster quarter final win over Castleblayney on a score line of 2.07 to 1.08.In a very tense game the girls put in a great performance. The girls will face Carrickmacross in the Semi Final.  LADIES GAA: DONEGAL LADIES PIPPED BY LAOIS was last modified: February 4th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:LADIES GAA: DONEGAL LADIES PIPPED BY LAOISlast_img read more
