What do you see? This is the Mumbai Terminal 1 counter of Indigo where more than 1000+ passengers have been waiting to board their flights and because of the Mumbai Monsoon the flights all have got either delayed or cancelled. What I see is passengers jumping on the individual Indigo person holding on the fort behind the counter with zero clue on the questions asked by the passengers. Somehow patiently listening to all the choice of words thrown around. In between silent spectators adding fuel by demanding unreasonably and enjoying the scene. I also see adults behaving like kids and kids enjoying and playing. Not bothered of what's around. Mind you it's 1 in the morning and they are least bothered of the chaos and fight going around. I also see poor planning and managing the disaster on behalf of the flight authorities. Indicator showing on time whereas the flight has been delayed for more than few hours and the story continues.. Some are busy taking videos, some are sleeping on the floor, some are building bridges and asking the fate of other passengers and I chose to blog on what I saw while waiting for my flight to KL. It's actually a entertainment I must say...

Another feather to our cap!!!































Friends,

" A goal is a dream with a deadline" - Napoleon Hill

60 Bits Consulting is proud to add another feather to our cap!

Kala Diwanji, Co Founder,  60 Bits Consulting is now a proud recipient from International Association of Facilitators (IAF) as a  Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF).

The goal was set 2 years ago and since then it has been an amazing and beautiful learning journey for Kala in particular and for 60 Bits Consulting in general while we are committed to partner with our clients to facilitate delivery of business outcomes through people.

A Small Change of being a facilitator makes a Big Difference to us and our Clients in what we do.

Three Cheers!

Shyam

What habits are you ready to let go of? This week I encourage you to create a list of bad habits that are preventing you from getting more of the results you want in life. Here are some prompts to get you going: Staying up too late Spending too much time on your phone Drinking alcohol Spending too much money Telling yourself you’re not good enough Giving up before you even get started Smoking Gossiping about others Always assuming the worst (Do any of those sound familiar to you?) Once you have finished your list, choose ONE of your bad habits and commit to replacing it with a more positive habit. For example, if your bad habit is staying up late, commit to going to bed by 10pm from now on. Or if you spend too much time on your phone surfing the web or on social media, commit to going for a 30-minute walk every day or reading a good book instead. Once you have made your commitment to a new habit, stick to it! Don’t give up until your old habit is gone for good and your new habit has become second nature to you. Because every time you replace a bad habit with a new behavior that gets better results, you move closer to becoming the person you need to be. To your evolving greatness! #60bits #60bitsconsulting #goals #mindpower #subconsciouspprogramming #subconscious #awakenthegenie #success #prosperity #happiness #love #abundance #belief

What's your employee experience in Induction training?



 ‘Inducting’ new hires into an organization can be challenging, especially when the intake is regular. HR and L&D teams  struggle with sharing the same content over and over again, and the routine becomes a repetitive activity that no one enjoys. Neither the new hires nor the speakers. If you resonate with this with your organisation induction process and then continue reading forward.
Here, is how to change the induction sessions into something interactive and fun-filled, yet helping participants to learn and retain the contents!
For eg: Sharing company policies with new recruits – leave, attendance, performance review, dress code, email etiquette, IT security, physical security, compensation and benefits, medical benefits………..and so on, is mandatory, but can be daunting and extremely boring.
Want to change this to something fun, yet have a lasting learning experience?
Use the ‘Textra’ Magic Wand! Here is how:
Break the participants into small groups. Groups of five or six are ideal. Have printouts of each policy document (leave, medical and so on) printed out and ready. Give each team one policy document (one copy for each member of the team) to read and discuss. Allow 10 minutes for this activity (longer or shorter based on the number of pages).
Ask each team to prepare a flip chart with highlights of the policy – let them get as creative as they like! They should also prepare a set of questions that they would expect others to ask, and be ready with the answers.
Each team should now make a presentation to the rest about their understanding of the policy. After that, all other participants can ask questions. If now questions are forthcoming, the team presenting the policy can use their prepared set of questions to ask the others – this way they test the understanding of the group. If you have time and want to go further deeper you can have the respective process owners attend the session and ask questions to the teams.
And that’s it! No more Power Point presentations! Not only will you be able to keep the group engaged, but you will find that they learn and retain more of the contents! This will give your new hires an amazing life time employee experience.
There are dozens of variations you can bring into Textra – it is only limited by your creativity!! With creativity and imagination, there is no limit to what you can accomplish with even ‘routine’ training, without sacrificing efficiency but enhancing participants’ learning exponentially!
What do you think you can do with Textra? Share and let me know!
Happy Learning!
Shyam

Winning in turbulent times...


For the past couple of months we have been working on the journey of Operational Excellence projects for our client and after having done 8 batches the learning and experience has been phenomenal.
Operational Excellence is far cheaper, faster, no risks and simpler to do. It involves the entire organisation and hence its a powerful differentiator as it renews the organisational energy, aligns mindset, objectives and goals in a very major way. Three fundamentals aspects of Operational Performance to keep in mind is Standardization, Improvement and Innovation. Improving Process is far more complicated process and hence driving Operational Excellence is a Managerial and Leadership process as it depends on peoples mindset, creates aspirations and passion for improved performance. It has an outstanding ability of cohesive of people due to involvement of CFT, Employee Engagement and motivation levels. When you are embarking on the journey of Operational Excellence asks yourself how are things happening here? Have you done the right process and got the right results? Done something and you have got the results somehow? Its a very powerful tool a company can apply to improve its performance.

Reinventing HR...

Dear Learners,

In 2015, Google published their results from a two year study into what makes a great team. The interesting thing is that it wasn’t necessarily the teams that contained the most senior people, those with the highest IQs or even teams that made the least number of mistakes who ranked the highest.

Based on their findings, the Google team came up with a list of the 5 key dynamics that make great teams successful: Psychological Safety, dependability, structure & clarity, meaning and impact. While all five were needed to create a successful team, psychological safety stood out as the most important factor. The study found that the teams which made more mistakes were actually more successful. Creating an environment in which people feel comfortable to take risks is the key to creating innovative workplaces. A great, diverse team is one that is able to bounce ideas off each other, strengthen goals, help resolve issues and provide support to its members.

By 2020, there will be five generations working side by side in the workplace. We are all different and unique, but with this comes different ways of working, approaches, mindsets, feelings, behaviours, motivations and needs. This can lead to assumptions, misunderstandings, miscommunication, conflict and under performance. Building a culture of psychological safety, where everyone feels accepted and respected, allows everyone to work in harmony, makes the most of their differences and drives a sense of empowerment to achieve anything.

Learn how to influence and make a difference as an HR business partner by becoming a process consultant and learn the art and science of facilitation skills in our upcoming LEAF workshop.
