9 RECOMMENDATIONS TO BE A GREAT HOST

What does good education mean?

Making the person next to you feel comfortable is the best way to demonstrate your education, regardless of our customs or culture.

Always placing the needs of others above ours, would be a good premise.

But how do we have to act when having a guest at home? Here we leave you 9 useful recommendations that  will help you:

  1. Greet: the first thing to do as a househost is to welcome your guest. Invite him to come in. Fell totally relaxed and comfortable, this will emanate good energy and will create a nice environment.
  2. Offer a drink, food: your guest might come from a long journey hungry, thirsty or tired. Invite them to have a drink or to eat something. They might be tired, offer them to wash up and rest if they want to.
  3. Run of the house and boundaries of the stay: show your gest around, it is important that he gets familiar with the house. Show them their room and anything he needs to know for his stay. But don’t overwhelm him with too much information.
  4. Give a Schedule: Give your guest a brief explanation or what your plans are, your timetables, when will you be at home, when will the meals take place, cooking menus…
  5. Make them comfortable: make it clear “my house is your house”. Make everything that’s possible to make them feel like at home. For example, give them kitchen orientation, to help themselves whenever they want.
  6. Basic needs: provide them with anything they can possible need. For example, clean towels, clean sheets, hygiene bath items…
  7. Privacy: Give them space and privacy. If they want to be alone in their room, rest or take a nap, respect that. It is not necessary to keep them busy all the time.
  8. Neat and clean house: make sure everything is clean tidy and neat, specially his or her room. You can even leave fresh flowers in their room as a way of saying welcome.
  9. Ask for arrival information: and last but not least, coordinate with your guest so that you are ready for when he arrives and receive him at the right time with a great welcome.

Finally, any standard or custom of the house is much better and more comfortable for everyone to speak from the first day.

I hope you have served this post to prepare the arrival of your guests.

We found a video from the blogger Amy Aniobi about “How To Be a Good Host”  vía Youtube, that might be helpful to complement this information.

INDIVIDUAL PRODUCTIVITY: Pending issue of companies

A happy employee is more profitable, companies still lack methods to avoid the outflow of talent

INDIVIDUAL PRODUCTIVITY

– The keys to productivity are the effectiveness and efficiency of workers at the collective level but also at the individual level. For an employee to have a good working method he needs to have self-motivation. Both concepts are related and that is where a leader and a team manager should try to influence for a compromise between company and employee, in order to obtain that motivation that will, in the end, improve the profitability of the company. For it, there must be fulfilled a series of parameters:

1 – Work satisfaction: people’s satisfaction has a direct impact on the productivity of the company. The place of work is where you usually spend most of the day and by having a conformity, it increases your motivation and desire to work. A good leader must encourage this motivation, rewarding in some way the work and realizing techniques where the employees can have autonomy, ability to decide. That they find benefits form working for that company besides the salary.

2- Identification: Commitment to the company is an indispensable requirement in any workplace, and for this the worker must feel identified with the goal and the objective of any organization. Identification with the brand is more than a commitment, since it is not an obligation, but a feeling that the company must develop in the employee. This feeling also leads to increased productivity.

3- Competences: In order to reach high levels and expected results in a company, the conditions that an individual worker must have are to gather skills: adaptability, creativity, communication, tenacity, etc. These qualities are basic to perform the job. The contribution and personal capacity aside from your academic knowledge, will help to carry out the tasks and also improve the company.

VIA FAMILIES AS A NEW ELEMENT OF LABOR MOTIVATION

Raising the salary is not the only way to motivate and to get the worker happy and loyal to the company.

There are rewards to which more organizations join every day so that workers feel more committed and increase their job satisfaction. Gratuities such as transportation, restaurant tickets, health insurance or aid in the education of children can greatly save employees, so it has been proven that the company motivates it without having to resort to salary increases.

Via Families presents itself as a social platform that allows multinational companies to offer a service to their associates and workers to make exchanges with families and students who share common needs and interests with their children in different countries, allowing them to learn different languages, and cultures. But also with the convenience of sharing tastes and interests with the exchange family.

Thanks to this platform companies that decide to adapt it to their workers as a form of remuneration will have the advantage of improving their brand as an employer and stand out against their competition. It is a novel system that makes companies loyal and retan talent.

Travel and Discover: World becomes small!

Travel unleashes in us emotions that can help us in times of sadness. It awakens our endorphins the same as a good song, sports or when eating a chocolate.

Emotions begin with the preparations, so say 7 out of 10 people interviewed in a study of 17,000 people. (via La vanguardia)

Most of us like to take our bags and go on a trip, to escape monotony, work, the stress and routine. All in order to rest, have fun, to distract us …. Learning, knowing, changing, keeps us alive, aware of what we see and know. Travel is a gift that we make but much greater than we believe.

Our health also benefits: insomnia, sadness or depressions become lethargic, leaving behind all worries. Meeting people in other countries, learning from their customs or gastronomy opens our minds, broadens our borders and frees us from prejudices.

Traveling is a balm for our health, especially when traveling is related to vacations and pleasure!

But humanity has looked from its beginnings to explore the unknown, to venture and to find the new. To know and to explore. We humans are like that! Eager to discover, to go further … from the Romans through Cristobal Colón, Marco Polo …. the conquest of space is just around the corner, there is already talking of trips to Mars …

On April 12, 1961, the first space flight operated by a human being was made; it was a milestone in our history, the Russian Yuri Gagarin, manned a ship that sailed around the Earth’s orbit. 50 years later, in 2011, the UN General Assembly declares 12 April as International Day of Manned Space Flight and is celebrated in more than 34 countries “The Night of Yuri”.

Trips dislocate us, move our foundations to build new ones with more memories, new knowledge and experiences, take us out of our comfort zone and our routine, destroy myths and build truths.

Les voyages libèrent en nous des émotions qui peuvent nous aider dans des moments de tristesse. Ils réveillent nos endorphines comme une bonne chanson, un sport ou quand on mange du chocolat.
