How to become Facilitative HR in an organisation...

Friends,

Facilitation skills are critical for successfully solving the people as well as business issues. The impact of effective facilitation on resolution of complex people & Business related issues is immense. 
Hence, as a part of preparing for future, HR has to develop these skills for effective implementation of people processes across the company. The importance of professional facilitation is felt in multiple applications like Strategy sessions, Employee Engagement Action Planning Sessions, Performance Management Workshops, Small Group departmental Meetings, Creative Problem Solving meetings, Inductions, Open house, Brainstorming, Review meetings, Conflict resolutions between teams, Ideation / Innovation, Managing Union Negotiations, Trainings, Discussions etc. 

If you want to learn and make your sessions impactful by conceptualizing and executing well designed facilitation processes you should be registering for the below two days workshop.

How to Facilitate with ease...

Friends,

The role of the HR Leader has undergone a tremendous change in the last few years. On one hand is the growing importance of understanding business and being aligned with it. On the other is the increasing importance of being the driver of culture and a person who enables common thinking and commitment / ownership across the organization especially when changes happen.

To do this, the HR person needs to be able to influence managers across levels in the organization and be able to intervene appropriately in various situations to enable shared commitment and alignment to a common goal / purpose. The outcome of doing this is high performance of the organization and enhanced engagement of people.


The skill to be able to get collective engagement and alignment is what Facilitation is all about. Being facilitative is a different way of interacting with co-workers and viewing a task. According to Webster’s dictionary, “Facilitate”, from the root word “facile”, is to “make easy or easier”. It means functioning with a mindset of serving others, allowing the group and the situation to “be in control”. 

As an HR leader, this emphasis on people skills is powerful. Instead of having to “know”, you need to build the capacity for more people to “be in the know”

If you are interested to learn more about the "how" part and get ease with Facilitating then you should be attending the upcoming event on 25th & 26th Nov 2017 at Courtyard Mariott, Mumbai.

The program facilitates learning experientially – creating understanding of each tool and technique by experiencing it in a demonstration; practicing it within the group on relevant topics to build the confidence to deploy the tool / technique; action planning to deploy the learning.

How to tap your most valuable resource - your people?

Facilitation is the art and science of helping teams to be more effective in their work. The tools and processes applied in facilitation encourage teams to use their diverse backgrounds, values, interests and capabilities to make higher quality decisions, increase their productivity and improve their team dynamics.

In short, facilitation enhances the interactions between individuals and teams in order to focus on results.

Think about how much time, money and energy is wasted in conceiving and ineptly conducting various events / interventions / processes at your workplace? Whether it is a planning meeting, a problem solving or process improvement session or a team development workshop. A certified and skilled facilitator can help you achieve much better outcomes.

You can start incorporating facilitation into your business culture. Tap into your greatest resource – your people. You can achieve much better business and people results and develop leadership capacities.


Come and join the two days workshop “LEAF – Learning & Engaging Actively Through Facilitation” on 25th & 26th November 2017 at Courtyard Mariott, Mumbai, wherein you will learn how to incorporate facilitation skills into your organisation’s daily operations.

Bringing out the best in people!

Friends,

Let me share with you a real-life example when we were working with a Manager whose engagement scores had dipped to a great extent and during the discussion with him and meeting his team members we figured out that the manager’s leadership style was predominantly of telling. He made all the decisions then informed his team to carry them out. The team who were knowledge workers preferred to be consulted and involved in decision making process.

This is where the facilitative approach helps as no single person has all the answers and facilitative approaches can engage everyone.

In the engagement workshop with the manager and his team we discovered that the team were doing their bare minimum to get by as they were simply operating in compliant mode. The whole employee engagement workshop was designed after discussing with the manager that we will be leveraging on the collective wisdom and experience of the team to increase opportunity for contribution. The manager agreed to our suggestion.

We used certain divergence and convergence facilitative processes. Initially, this new approach was met with reservation from the team. But when they realised the true intentions, the team became more participative and forthcoming and even performed beyond the expectations of the manager.

Simply by being engaged, the team mover to operating in commitment mode. And later on by being engaged and acting on the action plans co created jointly the team became supportive of their manager’s plans because they felt consulted and valued.
  •        When was the last time you felt as a team member valued and consulted?
  •    As a Manager do you experience the need to get your team members to participate? How to get the individuals in your team to act like a team towards their common organisational goals?
  •       When was the last time as a leader you saw in action you can save time and money when a diverse group of individuals is engaged and have a common goal?

If you are facing challenges at Engaging People, Empowering Teams and exceeding targets watch out and register for our upcoming two days Experiential and Process driven LEAF [Learning & Engaging Actively Through Facilitation] workshop on 25th & 26th November at Courtyard Marriot, Mumbai.

This is the first Facilitation based workshop of its kind wherein the entire two days will be:
·      Without a power point presentation
·      Participants would be learning by doing
·      Mock facilitation session for practice
· Demonstration of various tools and processes [ convergence and divergence]
·     Free facilitator kit worth INR 5000
·     Participants would be getting for the first time ever a certificate from NSIM [National Skill India Mission] promoted by Govt of India as we are the first company in India to get Facilitation skills certified as the skill required for the 21st Century under the Skill Development Certification.

Watch out for more details coming soon…

For your success,
Shyam

Law of Attraction true stories...

Friends,

As you may already know, I strongly believe in the Law of Attraction, and trust me, it works. I've seen its impact in my life over and over again.

But even still, many people have asked me if The Secret and Law of Attraction, really work.

In other words, they're asking...

Can it work for me?

Well, here are some Law of Attraction Success Stories so you can see for yourself:

Pravin Pinto
One of my goals was having my own house. After my encounter with mind power in the year 2009 I started visualizing about this house which I always dreamt of and parallelly started searching for properties. I did all of it while have only a few thousand Rupees in my bank account. I finalized a house in the year 2014 and made a down payment. I was really amazed by the help I received from unexpected quarters when I was short of money towards payment of installments. Well to cut a long story short, what you desire will always come true, mine came true too. On 29th of September I received the procession of my house.

Ranjeet Bayas
I had attended Shyam’s workshop with my entire team at Lonavala and we all had manifested the growth for our business. In less than 6 months time we could see our business flourishing and our dreams are coming into reality. Our current office is at Dombivli and now we have opened up new bigger office at prominent location at Mulund and Dubai.

Pradip Pardeshi
I was going thru multiple personal and emotional problems leading to lack of interest and focus on my career. After the coaching session from Mr. Shyam Iyer, I was able to come out of all my problems, past negative emotions and business is multiplied and now I am living my dreams fully.

Darshana Sawant
I overcame my childhood fears and got rid of my negative emotions and thoughts. After attending the workshop, I feel very lighter within and in a happy state, very confident and my productivity at work has increased. Gratitude Shyam sir.

Megha Gandhi
By practicing daily rituals, I am able to control my anger and improve my relationship with my close and loved ones. I am at peace, feel more beautiful and confident at work. Thanks so much Shyam sir.

Chitra Karade
After this workshop by Shyam sir I am able to overcome my biggest childhood fears which was disturbing me personally and professionally. Now I have removed my disempowering beliefs and live a happy balanced life. My performance at work has increased and recognised.

Shobana Pillai
I was undergoing lot of depression post my husband’s demise which led to health issues including unable to sleep at night. After attending Shyam sir’s workshop and following the daily rituals I could overcome my sleep issues immediately, came out of depression and stopped taking all the medicines I used to earlier. I also had public fear of speaking which I could overcome after this workshop.

Manpreet Singh
After taking the coaching session from Shyam, I was able to get rid of my acute back pain which was not curing despite physiotherapy and medicines. Now I am healthy and manifesting bigger goals.

Do you feel empowered by these stories? The Law of Attraction is one of the most powerful forces in the universe. In fact, it's working in your life at this very moment.

In order for you to unleash the full power of the Law, you need get into the state of "flow" that happens when you activate it.

That's why I put together a program that uncovers the exact subconscious motivations and automatic strategies that I, myself, and countless others use — without even realizing it — that enables us to manifest our dreams.

It's called, “Awaken the Genie Within”. The second batch is coming up in December. Stay tuned for the dates and venue which will be announced soon.

It’s time to unleash the power of your mind and don’t put your dreams on hold any longer.

To your success,


Shyam

Mind is your gadget...the greatest app






















                    Join our upcoming workshop and be a Victor and live life of your dreams!



Start living the Law of Attraction the right way...

Quick question: How much do you know about the Law of Attraction?

A lot of people are consciously aware of this powerful law, which states that our thoughts create EVERYTHING that happens to us...

And many even know this "formula" which was laid out in The Secret:
1.   Ask
2.   Believe
3.   Receive
But, very few people are actually living the Law of Attraction. Trust me, when I tell you there's a massive difference between knowing this law and actively living it.

Once I began living this universal law, my life changed forever.

It's responsible for producing profound results in my life, and in the lives of countless others that I've met, spoken to, heard about, trained, and worked with.

This amazing law also states that you can change your thoughts, you can change your results, and you can create the life you've always imagined for yourself.

The sad fact though, is that many people try to put the Law of Attraction to work in their lives, but are never able to activate its full power...

They feel like, no matter how much they ask and believe, they never seem to receive what they truly desire.

That's why I'm having this workshop to share this with you today

This Diwali - gift yourself by investing your time and attend this two days’ workshop which will open up your heart and mind, and give you greater insight into how the Law of Attraction really works, and how you can apply it in your life for maximum results.


To your success,
Shyam

Wondering how to stay focused and achieve your goals...



You are Unique - and So is Everyone Else!

Imagine if in a jigsaw puzzle all the pieces would be same. Would it be interesting? Got you imagining and thinking about it?

Every piece of the jigsaw puzzle is important as it makes it whole. All the piece looks similar yet they are so different. This uniqueness in these pieces makes the whole jigsaw puzzle interesting.

This metaphor holds true for an organisation too.

Career growth and work-life balance are the two most important factors for the under-30s who constitute one third of the Indian workforce.

Would you be interested to create awareness, benefits and sensitize your team towards the Diversity and Inclusive management through an experiential leadership prog on D&I using Creative Arts exclusively developed inhouse by our 60 Bits team? Yes, you read it correct using a very powerful facilitative approach and not thru the PPT training methodology…

Creating your own Rainbow...

“You have to dream before your dreams can become true”
-          Abdul Kalam

As a famous Indian poet remarked, dreams are the foundations for achieving the impossible.

The Wright brothers dreamed of flying when they saw birds soaring in the sky; scientists dreamed of the radio when they realised the power of echo.

Steve Jobs dreamed of putting an Apple computer in every home. He created the huge success of iPod by dreaming of music downloads that are legal.

Without dreams, there is no progress. Dream about what you want to do.

Did you know “Fears kills more dreams than Failures

If want to achieve success over your fear and live a life of your dreams do attend the 14th and 15th Oct workshop wherein you would be learning mind tools and techniques to break away your disempowering beliefs and fears. You would be receiving a 30 day success conditioning program and many more tools to keep you unstoppable!

We are going to teach you to remove all the mental or emotional obstacles that are standing in the way of your success... so that you can reprogram your subconscious and see your life, career, wealth, and goals in a new light.

These techniques and strategies supplement what I teach and actually go even deeper into your brain's "wiring."

How I Tap My Stress and Anxiety Away...

Friends,
We all experience stress in our lives. Whether you're running late in the morning due to unexpected traffic, or overwhelmed by a bursting schedule and to-do list, it's not uncommon to feel anxiety and stress on a daily basis.
What's important is how we're able to cope with these feelings. If you're unsure of how to overcome these negative and taxing emotions, I have a technique that could help you...
Have you ever heard of Tapping? If you haven't heard of it, this is going to change your life.
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) or "Tapping" is a powerful tool that helps you balance your body's energy, releasing stress, anxiety, fears, etc., by physically tapping on 9 acupressure points throughout your body.
Along with the power of visualization, EFT is a way to reprogram your subconscious mind to overcome past hurts, limiting beliefs, and serious phobias.
And I use it on a regular basis!
If you really want to use this technique to your advantage and learn how to create the traits, belief systems, and energy required for success, then I strongly suggest attending the below workshop to discover the extraordinary benefits of the Tapping Technique.
Cheers,
Shyam

How your childhood affects your success...

Friends,

There is a very powerful connection between your mind and your success.

For instance, increasing your income is largely determined by the limiting beliefs and negative habits that were programmed into your brain at a young age.

It's true.

Did you grow up hearing things like:

"Money doesn't grow on trees."
"We can't afford it."
"All rich people are evil."
"We'll never be wealthy."
"Money is the root of all evil."

These phrases seem harmless, but they act as instructions to your subconscious mind. They are the seeds that grow into the limiting beliefs and thought patterns that determine how you think or feel about money today, as an adult.

And most of these beliefs have been programmed into your mind for years, so much so that they're practically part of your wiring.

It's no wonder why so many of us struggle to earn more money, follow our dreams, or have the relationships we want. Sometimes it's to the point where we don't even feel comfortable asking for or receiving those things when it does come into our lives.

But there's good news...

If you've ever felt like there was something holding you back from success that is out of your control, I invite you to check this out incredible live event “Awaken the Genie Within” on 14th and 15th Oct 17 that can help you remove all of the mental or emotional roadblocks that are preventing you from achieving your goals.

I've seen it for myself, and it's truly incredible.


You're invited to attend...



Do you want to be in control of what is happening within you?






















Friends,

You are pretty aware about what is happening around you?

Have you ever thought what is happening within you? Do you want to be in control of what is happening within you?


If yes, see you all at the workshop…


Isn’t it all about #Goal Setting...

Friends,

Have you ever wondered why only 5% of Leadership drives 95% of Organizational Assets to enable Business Performance? 

Which process in HR is the most critical input to majority of People Processes? Yes...you got it correct. It’s the PMS [Performance Management System] process which has inputs to Learning & Development, Promotion, Talent Management, Competency Management and Succession Planning.

How robust is your PMS process? How are the organisational, department and individual goals set? What can we do to improve your goal setting process, appraisals and feedback process?

We recently had a great opportunity to cascade the organisational goals of the CEO with his direct reportees at CXO levels.

We at 60 Bits Consulting used facilitative processes and got the alignment of goals for their top team. What we saw post the session was greater transparency and fairness with reference to setting up of goals, collaboration and ownership amongst the top team. The team was set up for high performance and the same would now get further cascaded to their respective depts. and team members.

We are now in mid-year and yet most of the companies we have seen are either not fixed their goals or in the process of doing so. Many HR heads are in the process of strengthening their Performance Management System as part of their top agenda, which is the right thing to do so. Everything starts with the Goal setting process and then it has its cascading effect across.

Would you want to co-create shared goals and objectively measurable goals linked to the Organisational goals? Connect with us at shyam.iyer@60bitsconsulting.com and we will be happy to support you.

Cheers,

Shyam

How to Build Wealth and Increase Happiness...

There's a possibility that everything in your life is perfect right now.

Maybe you have achieved your biggest goals.

Maybe you're pursuing your passions.

Maybe you have more than enough money to take care of your family for the rest of your life.

If so, that's great.

But if that's not the case... did you ever wonder why some people are able to achieve this kind of extraordinary success in life, while others struggle and never even get close?

Do you know that scientists have actually discovered a way to “wire your brain” for wealth and success. According to neuroscientists, financial success is actually wired into your brain, and it's what most likely keeps you stuck...as you may already figured out, it has nothing to do with intelligence... or natural talent... or luck. I know it may sound unbelievable!

The fact is it has everything to do with the habits, thought patterns and deeply ingrained limiting beliefs you have.

You see, accomplishing your goals, living a life full of passion, and becoming wealthy is simply a result of upgrading your brain's "programming."

Much like activating your creative subconscious, when you upgrade your brain...it becomes much easier to live the life you've always dreamed of.

Do you want to learn how to upgrade and establish new empowering beliefs and reprogram your brain to help you achieve all of your goals!

Spend your weekend 14th and 15th October 2017 and you can end up living the life of your dreams.

I’ll see you there!

To your success,
Shyam
