Setting up protocols is a tedious process
But once set, it makes things much easier.
When a team shares the same language they communicate effectively so protocols aid in communication.When rules procedures are set as the protocol to follow, workflow improves without hitches With protocols laid down like a step-by-step process every employee can have clarity on ways to address conflicts if any, and how to seek resolution.
Why is there a need and necessity of creating rules systems and follow protocols?
In the workplace, it can be a guideline for proper behavior at work and also can help prevent conflicts or protect from harassment.
With changing times and situations as they are, whether it’s a ‘Work from home or office’, netiquettes and manners can make a huge difference in the way businesses are run.
Every small exchange of interaction can make or mar the communication levels.
Setting up protocols and training modules can increase productivity and improve professionalism in conducting business.
Communication for Implementation
For protocols to be successfully implemented It has to be relevant and easy to understand. Often the rules can seem too confusing so communication is very crucial in getting protocols in place in any organization understood. And even more so in this changing world.
Standards and protocols when defined properly, can certainly help increase productivity at work. And as expectations are set and there is clarity for what methods are for the deliverables and the timeframes, there is greater ownership, attention and accountability in the organization to follow the procedures.
As a Consultant I have enabled teams across departments setup their systems in place as well as improvising on the set procedures , while making the required changes such that the process can work efficiently. Ensuring the protocols are followed is just as challenging as setting it up. However, it becomes easier when they are followed as a practice with checks and balances in all teams without too many exceptions to the rule, to support new employees to ease in to the system.
How important have Protocols been for your organization’s efficiency?
Have your teams been following through the set norms and have they been effective?
I would love to know. Do share.

Today I am happy to be sharing a motivational message in the words of my dear mother.
When we walk along the path of roses, thorns are unavoidable.
It doesn’t mean we stop walking. Remove the thorns from our way and proceed further
It may hurt. But It won’t last. Let’s keep going .
Life is like a seesaw
It keeps going up and down.
The fall and climb are parts of life.
Fret not if our efforts don’t yield results
The seed needs its own time
To grow into a tree
The buds to blossom as fragrant flowers,
The fruits and grains to ripen & nourish
Yet till then they need all the care and nurture.
So do our dreams, take its own time and
our continuous effort to become reality.
Waves fall to rise again
Leaves fall to bring
Day falls to bring a new dawn again.
Are we not a part of Nature?
Our dreams are the seed.
Our patience is the time
Our hard work is the nurture
Our Faith n Hope are the nourishment.
We may fall, be sure we will rise again
For success is awaiting to be reaped.🙏🏼
Sometimes art simply shapes up in the nuances of expression.
Every artistic expression
Speaks of a certain experience
Of a narrative from a perspective
That can both personal or impersonal.
Yet it deeply connects the art & artist.
In those unique circumstances
That may birth the flow & the shaping.
And when the art becomes a spectacle.
The spectator interpretations
Can be equally enigmatic
As much as deeply interconnected.
All in the nuances of the artistic expression.
Art feels complete for the artist
When there is a contentment
From within that this is enough!
And that the expression is fulfilled
While the artists feels contentment
For the viewer, it is a beginning
Of endless possibilities
For each thinking is unique
Juxtaposed between the artist and the admirer
Is the art which is created
Out of a thought and intention
In colours and hues
In texture and design
Unparalleled in its very uniqueness
Awaiting another interpretation
Sharing inspiration for more creativity
Sharing perspectives in the envisioning
Art knows better,
To simply be as it evokes emotions
In its journey to fulfill itself
And that is how it completes itself.
The Platform of Life.
Every life births its path
Life teaches to evolve itself
Life trains and tests us along the way
The path of life is our platform.
The power of choice
Rests with us
To practice, the lessons learned
In this platform of life.
Power of Practice
Our thoughts words deeds
Can become mindful in time
All it needs is practice.
And more practice.
If you wish to think good: Practice
If you wish to do good: Practice
If you wish to speak well: Practice
If you wish to cultivate good: Practice
Animal Rights Awareness Week -June 14-20, 2020
Yes adopt an underdog
But by no means think
That of some sad brown little creature
They come in all shapes and sizes.
Think no less of them
For they are so much more
For they have had it truly tough
Life has been challenging enough.
Resilience and tolerance
Is in their bones
But love is flowing all the same
Through their beautiful hearts.
Some are amazingly warm and loving
Some are fearful & some too friendly
And some a vision of cuteness but all just simply abandoned.
Some are street dogs, with the highest immunity.
Some are just born in a little special way
They are all just as beautiful and have a right to be
Like you or me.
Meet The Happy Faced ‘Buddy ‘of Wiggles.
There are many that are sadly discarded
By inhuman puppy mills.
Created in the most unethical ways
How can one life torture another so! The bane of humanity
That sees no hope for them.
For they are apparently imperfect
In some odd little way. They may not be the strongest
Or the most beautiful
But that’s what makes them special
Just the way they are!
Meet Tia Our Black&white Beauty
Make some space in your heart
Adopt a dog that needs a home
Every dog gives unconditional love
Reach out your hands for a paw.
Choose to adopt a dog with love.
Pleases don’t buy, you are simply encouraging
This heart-wrenching trade and trafficking
Of million innocent hapless little lives. So much cruelty by so-called human
Please think before you join in.
I implore you to not ask
For a pet of a particular shape color or size or breed. There are many puppies culled because of your unethical desires.
Respect creation and sustain this world
choose to love and adopt a pet.
Take a step to change one life today!
All these beautiful fur babes featured here are our adopted and rescued family and office pets.
My heartfelt plea to adopt an innocent life that needs a home.
Sharing this insightful post that came in as a forward.
IQ , EQ , SQ , AQ
…..According to psychologists, there are four types of intelligence:
1) Intelligence Quotient (IQ)
2) Emotional Quotient (EQ)
3) Social Quotient (SQ)
4) Adversity Quotient (AQ)
1. Intelligence Quotient (IQ): this is the measure of your comprehension ability”, solve maths; memorize things and recall subject matters.
2. Emotional Quotient (EQ): this is the measure of your ability to maintain peace with others; keep to time; be responsible; be honest; respect boundaries; be humble, genuine and considerate.
3. Social Quotient (SQ):
This is the measure of your ability to build a network of friends and maintain it over a long period of time.
People that have higher EQ and SQ tend to go farther in life than those with high IQ but low EQ and SQ. Most schools capitalize in improving IQ level while EQ and SQ are played down.
An individual with high IQ can end up being employed by a person with high EQ and SQ even though the person has an average IQ.
Your EQ represents your character; your SQ represents your charisma. Give in to habits that will improve these three Qs but more especially your EQ and SQ.
EQ and SQ make one manage better than the other.
Pls don’t teach children only to have higher IQ , but also to have higher EQ and SQ.
Now there is a 4th one :
A new paradigm
4. The Adversity Quotient (AQ):
The measure of your ability to go through a rough patch in life and come out without losing your mind.
AQ determines who will give up in face of troubles and may abandon their families.
Expose children to other areas of life than academic. They should adore manual work (never use work as a form of punishment), sport and art .
Develop their EQ, SQ and AQ. They should become multifaceted human beings able to do things independently of the parents.
*Finally*, do not prepare the road for the children. Prepare the children for the road.

Visions from the sky!
In these following verses, I recount the visions from the sky that I enjoyed a few months ago before all the chaos, in deep gratitude for the beauty of nature… Across lands divided by human maps, what emerged significantly was how the scenery in spite of its individual attributes, flowed merging seamlessly into one another in harmony… Amazing nature amazing grace… I couldn’t help but waltz along.🙂
I see her splendid beauty
Crystalize itself in front of my eyes.
Mountain tops bejeweled with ice
I watch her dancing
In the fluidity of the flow
Rivers shimmering in the rays of the sun
I waltzed along with her through the horizon
As the plane paddled alongside fluffs of white clouds.
Green pastures and plains
Gave way to rocky mountains
Folds over the hills stretching on
As long as the eye could fathom
A vision to behold
And time after time
The Sun would play hide and seek
Dancing cheek to cheek with the clouds
It was pure fascination
As I watched it all from up above
Magical majestic mystical mother
You are alluring and awe-inspiring in every way
Your beauty blows my mind
And captures my senses
Graceful God, I bow to thee!
