[MYTH OR SCIENCE?]
We should motivate employees to display organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) because it would benefit their careers but we probably believe that our own OCB will yield career benefits too. Surprisingly, these assumptions are false at least in certain organizations. Why?
In some organizations, employees are evaluated more on how they get their works done rather than on how much they do. In these situations, OCBs are considered as the next higher level of good employee behavior. Employees' careers thus benefit because of their helpfulness towards coworkers.
In other organizations, employees are evaluated more on what gets done. They are determined to be good performers if they achieve the objective goals. Those who are engaged in OCB find their career progress is slowed when they take time away frim core tasks to be helpful.
There may be a trade off between being a good performer and being a good citizen. In organizations that focus more on behaviors, following your motivation to be a good citizen can help to accomplish your career goals. However, in organizations that focus more on objective outcomes, you may need to consider the cost of your good deeds.
Always a pleasure to meet for an intensive exchange with our friends from the Jerusalem Institute for Policy Research (JIPR). Today we #recapped and #evaluated our joint #activities in 2019 and discussed our working #plan for 2020 activities. The focus of our joint #cooperation 2020 will remain the #improvement of services in East Jerusalem via research works, expert roundtables, conferences, study tours and training courses with the goal of #affecting policy and providing #solutions to the many challenges East Jerusalem residents are facing. We are looking foward to another year of fruitful cooperation with our partner JIPR.
... I have come to dislike #debate and #arguments as they almost always devolve down to both sides believing there is one winner and one loser in their efforts ... rather than a #discussion where #PointsOfView#Beliefs and #Evidence can be presented AND truly listened to with the added bonus of actually being #evaluated ... not just someone waiting for their opening to speak
#realtalktuesday , over the past 4-5 years I have #planned , #evaluated , and #planned some more on ideas and goals I wanted to accomplish. The problem about everything is I had these goal but ended up focusing on other things.
This year I made a goal to impact lives, therefore instead of waiting in going to run and make it happen.
Photoshoots require a ton of prep work, hard-working models and knowledgable experts in the field. Our photographer Chris Sztybel also makes them a ton of fun! In the end, the collection of images we take are carefully evaluated and curated into a collection that will end up representing the brand across all media. That brings us joy.
What donyou think Folks? Found this online and think it is sth Ro debate on.
Whether you like it or not, you are constantly being #evaluated and re-evaluated by everyone around you. How you #dress at work sends a number of signals about how you view the environment, how much #respect you have for your #work and yourself, what #groups you identify with, and where you think you belong. So if you dress more like the peer group you aspire to, and less like the one you are in, you are sending a powerful signal that you belong in that group.
In addition, there is a common #perception among #management that if you can’t handle the small things, you probably aren’t well suited to handle larger responsibility. Put simply: If you can’t even dress yourself properly, you can’t handle much else.
a simple change to nicer slacks, more formal shoes, and wearing button down long sleeve dress shirts made a huge difference in how people viewed and treated me ~~~~~~~ My own #experience shows: you can be high paid and still dress-up as you want, depending on your role & #Business#industry . .. #thoughts

Fathers play a role in every child’s life that cannot be filled by others. This role can have a large impact on a child and help shape him or her into the person they become.
Fathers, like mothers, are pillars in the development of a child’s emotional well-being. Children look to their fathers to lay down the rules and enforce them. They also look to their fathers to provide a feeling of security, both physical and emotional. Children want to make their fathers proud, and an involved father promotes inner growth and strength. Studies have shown that when fathers are affectionate and supportive, it greatly affects a child’s cognitive and social development. It also instills an overall sense of well-being and self confidence.
How much control do we have over our children's happiness?
What can you do to create a home where your child's happiness will flourish?
The surest way to promote your child's lifelong emotional well-being is to help him feel connected—to you, other family members, friends, neighbors, daycare providers, even to pets. A feeling of being loved, understood, wanted, acknowledged—emerged as by far the biggest protector against emotional distress, suicidal thoughts, and risky behaviors including smoking, drinking, and using drugs.
While we can't control our children's happiness, we are responsible for our own. And because children absorb everything from us, our moods matter. Consequently, one of the best things you can do for your child's emotional well-being is to attend to yours.
There are many things that are out of our control, medically etc. But if you are healthy and broke you earned that! If you dont agree or this makes you mad... #evaluate

At Childtime, your child will develop their best mind, their love of learning, their personality, and their bright future.. Teach your kid the importance of a healthy lifestyle
It is crucial to teach your child the importance of maintaining his body through exercise and proper eating habits. Try to instill in them early preference for the healthy. Encourage them to eat leafy vegetables and decent food at every meal. Junk food and sweets are still important and should be used as positive reinforcement, but do not let them rely on it. Make sure it doesn’t become a regular habit.
Another perhaps largely overlooked focus is your child’s mental health. Make sure your child can always come and speak to you about any problem they have. Talk through their emotions with them when they become stressed. Always make sure to teach them techniques to remain calm, and you yourself purvey a healthy mindset.
In 1925, the World Conference for the Well-being of Children declared June 1 as the day to draw the world’s attention to issues affecting children. The represented countries recognized that "mankind owes to the Child the best that it has to give." As a result the Conference adopted the Geneva Declaration of the Rights of the Child.
The child must be given the means requisite for its normal development, both materially and spiritually;
The child that is hungry must be fed; the child that is sick must be nursed; the child that is backward must be helped; the delinquent child must be reclaimed; and the orphan and the waif must be sheltered and succored;
The child must be the first to receive relief in times of distress;
The child must be put in a position to earn a livelihood, and must be protected against every form of exploitation;
The child must be brought up in the consciousness that its talents must be devoted to the service of fellow men.
WAYS TO TRAVEL THE WORLD WITH YOUR CHILD
ART & CRAFTS
It’s really easy to learn about other places through art! You can learn about famous artists from an area and study their pieces. You can recreate your own. One of the key things about using art is that it introduces the new vocabulary words to your child in a sensory integrated way.
TOYS AND GAMES
Here’s another hands on way to learn about other cultures. You can recreate a place with place and print out the landmarks. Discover different modes of transportation or simply play with dolls from that region. Using play to learn is best!
Any time you want to learn about a new place it’s a great way to connect your child’s senses with cooking.
CLOTHING AND OBJECTS
A great way to experience another culture is to find out the clothing and items that come from that region. Sometimes friends travel and it’s an easy thing to bring back or you can stumble upon them at garage sales. Playing dressup can take you to any place on earth!
The first thing you should get out to travel the world is a Globe and a Children’s Atlas! Libraries are full of books about every place around the world. Just pick a destination and a book will take you there. You can learn about the land, monuments, culture, foods, art and even famous people from your destination. Folktales are a fun way to learn about another place! Encourage your children to act out stories from other regions during playtime.
Teaching your kids about world cultures helps them appreciate the differences in people and their traditions. Put down the textbook and travel around the globe without ever needing a suitcase. Use your imagination and these activities that teach your children about world cultures.
Bonding is essential for a baby.
Most infants are ready to bond immediately. Parents, on the other hand, may have a mixture of feelings about it. Some parents feel an intense attachment within the first minutes or days after their baby's birth. For others, it may take a bit longer.
But bonding is a process, not something that takes place within minutes and not something that has to be limited to happening within a certain time period after birth. For many parents, bonding is a byproduct of everyday caregiving. You may not even know it's happening until you observe your baby's first smile and suddenly realize that you're filled with love and joy.
Bonding is the intense attachment that develops between parents and their baby. It makes parents want to shower their baby with love and affection and to protect and care for their little one. Bonding gets parents up in the middle of the night to feed their hungry baby and makes them attentive to the baby's wide range of cries.
Scientists are still learning a lot about bonding. They know that the strong ties between parents and their child provide the baby's first model for intimate relationships and foster a sense of security and positive self-esteem. And parents' responsiveness to an infant's signals can affect the child's social and cognitive development.
Many children grow up in homes which put an active damper on the qualities of genius. Factors in the home like poverty, depression and anxiety, pressure on kids to grow up too soon, and rigid ideologies based on hate and fear, actively subdue the qualities of genius in childhood such as playfulness, creativity, and wonder. Schools also put a damper on childhood genius through testing (creativity can’t thrive in an atmosphere of judgment), labeling of kids as learning disabled or ADD, boring teachers, and regimented curriculum. Finally, the broader culture, especially mass media, represses the genius in our children through its constant onslaught of violence, mediocrity, and repugnant role models.
The good news is that there is much that a teacher or parent can do to help children reawaken their natural genius. First, and most importantly, adults need to reawaken their own natural genius—find within themselves the sourcewaters of their own creativity, vitality, playfulness, and wonder. For when children are surrounded by curious and creative adults, they have their own inner genius sparked into action. Second, adults need to provide simple activities to activate the genius of children. Something as simple as a story, a toy (Einstein said that a simple magnetic compass awakened his love of learning at the age of four), a visit to a special place, or a question, can unlock the gates to a child’s love of learning. Third, create a “genial” atmosphere at home or school, where kids can learn in a climate free from criticism, comparison, and pressure to succeed. Treat each child as a unique gift from God capable of doing wonderful things in the world . Finally, understand that each child will be a genius in a totally different way from another child. Forget the standard I.Q. meaning of genius, and use models like the theory of multiple intelligences to help kids succeed on their own terms. By following these simple guidelines for awakening each child’s natural genius, you will be contributing immeasurably to the welfare of your children and to the world they will inherit someday.
Every child is a genius according to the original meanings of the word “genius,” which are: “to give birth” (related to the word genesis) and “to be zestful or joyous,” (related to the word genial). Essentially, the real meaning of genius is to “give birth to the joy” that is within each child. Every child is born with that capacity. Each child comes into life with wonder, curiosity, awe, spontaneity, vitality, flexibility, and many other characteristics of a joyous being. An infant has twice as many brain connections as an adult. The young child masters a complex symbol system (their own native language) without any formal instructions. Young children have vivid imaginations, creative minds, and sensitive personalities. These youthful traits are highly valued from an evolutionary perspective: the more species evolve, the more they carry youthful traits into adulthood (a process called “neotony” or “holding youth”). It is imperative that we, as educators and parents, help preserve these genius characteristics of children as they mature into adulthood, so those capacities can be made available to the broader culture at a time of incredible change.

In terms of human development, the importance of early childhood education can’t be overstated.
A child’s early years are the foundation for his or her future development, providing a strong base for lifelong learning and learning abilities, including cognitive and social development. Well-established research continues to emphasize the importance of early childhood education as an essential building block of a child’s future success.
What can you give to one small girl?
A diamond ring, a baton to twirl?
A pretty pink dress with lots of bows,
or dainty sandals that show her toes.
A walk in the woods, a romp in the park,
a shopping trip from dusk till dark?
A shine new bike, a kitten for a pet?
No, there's still time for such things,
Give her a day of her very own.
Just one small girl and her Dad alone.
Give her the gift that only you can,
the companionship of her old man.
Games are outgrown and toys decay,
but she'll never forget
if you give her a day.
Trust and respect are essential to a positive parent-child relationship.
Even in the early years with your baby, developing trust and respect is important. Your baby will feel secure when he learns he can trust his primary carers to meet his needs. Trust and respect become more of a two-way street as your child gets older.
You can nurture trust and respect in your relationship. ☀️Be available when your child needs support, care or help.This helps him learn to trust that you’ll be there when he needs you. ☀️Get to know your child and value him for who he is. This shows respect for his feelings and opinions, and also lets him know he can trust you with them. ☀️Allow the relationship to evolve as your child develops, and his needs and interests change. ☀️Set up some firm but fair family rules. Rules are clear statements about how your family wants to look after and treat its members. They can help your child trust that you’ll be consistent in the way you treat her.
How being in the moment helps parent-child relationships?
Being in the moment is about tuning in and thinking about what’s going on with your child. It shows your child that you care about the things that matter to him, which is the basis for a strong relationship.
Good parent - child relationship: Why they’re important?
Children’s most important early relationships are with parents.
Positive parent-child relationships help children learn about the world – whether the world is safe and secure, whether they’re loved, who loves them, what happens when they cry, laugh or make a face, and much more.
These relationships affect all areas of children's development.
You can build a positive parent-child relationship by: ☀️being in the moment with your child ☀️spending quality time with your child ☀️creating a caring environment of trust and respect.
There’s no formula for getting your parent-child relationship right, and there’ll be times when it’s hard to relate to your child the way you want to. But if you keep working on improving your relationship over time, your child will feel loved and secure.
Being kind can strengthen your relationships and sense of satisfaction in life.
Kindness is defined as the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.
Being kind often requires courage and strength.
Kindness is an interpersonal skill.
Science has now shown that devoting resources to others, rather than having more and more for yourself, brings about lasting well-being.
There are different ways to practice kindness. One way to be kind is to open your eyes and be active when you see people in need.
Do you notice when people could use a helping hand? A sense of community is created when people are kind to those who need help.
Kindness is to be openly happy for the other person.
Kindness is also about telling the truth in a gentle way when doing so is helpful to the other person. Receiving accurate feedback in a loving and caring way is an important part of a trusted relationship. The courage to give and receive truthful feedback is a key component of growth and flexible thinking.
Kindness includes being kind to yourself. Do you treat yourself kindly? Do you speak gently and kindly to yourself and take good care of yourself?
What would you love to have someone do for or to YOU today?
Then GO and DO IT for SOMEONE ELSE and see what it does for YOU.
