Communication Styles!

The Thinking & Acting Styles create combinations that predict how people will apply their styles when communicating with others (including when they're in leadership roles!). The Four Primary Communication Styles are: CHANGERS, PERFORMERS, CONSERVATORS, & PERFECTORS.

The Changers Changers combine the creative thought power of Innovators with the bold action orientation of Stimulators. Changers take new ideas & work to make them happen by implementation. They create change through experimentation instead of analysis, preferring to implement first & fine tune later. Changers tend to be free-thinking "sparkplugs" driven to act on new ideas.
Their communication style is: "Great idea; let's try it!"

The Perfectors Perfectors combine the creative thought power of Innovators with the powerful analysis & investigation skills of Analyzers. Whereas Changers will implement first & fine tune later, Innovators take a new idea & "try it on for size" in their minds. They tend to appraise, refine, & perfect before implementation. They are free thinkers drawn to new ideas, but will be cautious to act before assessing probable outcomes & understanding the details.
Their communication style is: "Great idea; let's think about it."

The Performers Performers take the bold acting style of Stimulators & marry it with the structured acting style of Processors. The result is a person can take proposed systems & processes & implements them---now. They are the "doers" in organizations; the "go-to" people who can be counted on to act & lead according to management's game plan, especially in a crisis.
They are structured thinkers whose communication style is: "Here's the plan. Let's do it now!"

The Conservators Like their Performer colleagues, Conservators prefer the structured acting style of Processors combined with the analysis skills of Analyzers. The result is a person who can take existing systems & procedures & improve them through careful, incremental actions that have been thoroughly assessed for consequences. Their talent is an ability to analyze the familiar & apply structured thinking to improve it. These are the "rock solid" people in organizations who you can rely on to manage important processes that, for example, result in certification of professionals & drugs, & issuance of governmental permits.
Their communication style can be summarized in the statement, "Let's work to improve the current plan."

What's your style?

Bachpan se bada koi school nahi, curiosity se badi koi teacher nahi.
There is no greater school than childhood and no greater teacher than curiosity.

Parle G(the largest selling brand of biscuits in the world) asks parents to encourage their child's curiosity and creativity in its campaign called 'Kal ke genius'. While the song has an '80s feel, it is the soul of the film and is written, sung and composed very well. The song aptly encapsulates the philosophy of the campaign. It is urging people to let their kids be just kids and let them explore if they are curious.

Parle-G's Glucose biscuits always evoke a sense of nostalgia. The ad in a nice way talks about the increasing parental control and societal pressures that make kids these days spend more time in study classes than learning through exploring new things. Curiosity is actually the best teacher. Unfortunately, it is just the kind of a thing which parents often discourage. In fact, we keep stopping children fro…

I'm Deepak Ravlani, and This Is How I Work

Like so many heroes of the startup world, I started early after college. Now, with years of experience in Technology behind me, it has become a lot easier to polish my workflow and get lots of stuff done. Let's talk about my workspace setup, go-to apps, best life hacks, favorite gadgets and tunes. In my free time, I work on a few side projects, including Blogging and managing several communities over Google+. Since launching in Dec 2012, +Project Glass community has become one of the fastest growing community. With  more than 2500(and counting) users and a thriving community of Glass fans, needless to say, the past few months have been crazy for me. Last time I went through this, it was 2008. I was using different apps, but did have sort of productivity system that really helped me get things done. In last few years, I've picked up a few tips and tricks along the way and I've been making some small changes here and there as I get more comfortable with my flow, So this time…

Next big thing for Smartphone's: Seeing And Understanding

A Smartphone would be able to see and understand its environment with the help of Perceptual Computing And Vision Processing.

Project Tango, an attempt to give mobile devices human-like understanding of space and motion by +Google ATAP(Advanced Technology And Projects).

Computer vision is a rich field of academic, commercial and industrial research, the implications of which extend tendrils into virtually every aspect of our lives. Anticipating needs before they arise, and understanding needs that a person might not even be aware they have, make up the broader blue sky opportunities for a tech like this.

Perceptual computing encompasses the whole field of analyzing data captured with sensors and visualization systems like cameras and infrared light. Computer vision is one component of the field, which allows devices to ‘see’ the areas around it more like a human does — or better. Getting 3D sensing onto phones, and spatial and topographic contextual awareness is table stakes for the n…

Killer tips for your new resume

Resumes could have much nicer, cleaner, more readable resumes if they would have been tweaked a bit. And none of these tweaks are hard to accomplish. So, let's start.

1. DON'T use a general resume. You cannot successfully use the same resume to apply to several different jobs. Your resume should be custom written for each job you are targeting. When you send out something generic, it shows apathy and lack of motivation. This is NOT the impression you want to send to your potential employers.

2. Start with an attractive layout. Use bold and italics to highlight key points. Not recommended downloadable templates because they are very generic and dull. Get creative but not crazy. You can use a little touch of color if you are modest.

3. Use a bulleted style to make your resume more reader-friendly. Given that employers screen resumes for between 2.5 and 20 seconds, they will find your resume a lot more readable if you use bullet points instead of paragraph style. It's just easie…
