Your building and the way in which it is managed is able to address a number of factors associated with staff contentment and wellbeing. In the highly competitive environment where a variety of owners of companies have problems when it comes to retaining the workers that are the best-skilled, we have identified 7 parts of a working life that should be considered. In addition, we will give you information of how your company building is able to support you when it comes to the achievement of workplace satisfaction.

1. Appreciating Your Staff

“To achieve full appreciation, business owners need to go beyond the lavish Christmas parties and bonus packages,” explain training experts at GBS Corporate Training. You may have heard about the “sick building” syndrome, as well as how air quality in buildings impacts on the inhabitant’s wellbeing.

The Easiest Way To Get Insured

These three methods are used by millions of people to find their insurance, and everyone uses them in different ways. So, which is the best way? And how can you get insured as quickly as possible on a great policy?

The fastest way for sure is to use the internet. Instead of spending hours on the phone and walking along the high-street, you are just a few clicks away from pretty much any major insurance company in the world. You can search for them based on their reputation, or their prices, or any other criteria that you are looking for, and there are no shortage of websites to help you choose a particular insurance company. All this can be done with minimal stress, minimal hassle, and can easily be logged so you know which insurance companies you have considered, which you have chosen to avoid, and which you are interested in.

Another great advantage of using the internet is that you can get a quote in a matter of minutes. Instead of lengthy phone calls and long interviews, you can simply input your data into a short form and you’ll get an accurate quote back immediately. Most decent insurance companies offer this capability these days, and you’d be surprised how accurate the quotes can be. Of course, if you have some exceptional circumstances or there is important information that the form doesn’t cover, the quote won’t be as accurate as possible, but it will certainly give you a fairly good indication of what you could end up paying. With such a quick way of getting a quote, you can easily rule out any insurance companies which you can see are instantly far too expensive (or even far too cheap). You can do this easily, and without the insurance company hassling you like they might do if you were talking to them on the phone or in person. You can then simply move on to the next insurance company if you weren’t happy with the quote, or start the process if you were.

Once you’ve found and chosen the insurance company you want to work with, the internet once again comes to your rescue. Instead of filling out lengthy forms, and having to keep calling the insurance company, everything can be handled online. This has numerous advantages; every communication you have with the insurance company is tracked, so you know that if there are problems in the future, you have everything on record. Another advantage is the fact that everything will be kept organized, and you’ll be able to quickly email the person in charge of your case. Everything about your policy will be clearly presented to you on the page, and you won’t need to worry about any nasty surprises in the future.

Once your policy has started, you’ll have all the necessary contact details you might need, you’ll be able to print the terms of your policy, pay your bill, and inform the insurance company of any potential changes …

Compute your auto insurance needs by meeting with an experienced auto insurance broker or by using the online worksheets and tools.

Personal Injury Settlement Advice

Personal injury advice is often sent after getting injured from an accident. However, there is no exact and specific advice that covers all personal injury cases because every case is unique. To get specific advice, discuss a personal injury and how to get settlement for it with a reliable lawyer, health professional, and a therapist who can guide you to the actions you have to take.

Below are some general and easy-to-follow advice that you should take when making a personal injury settlement.

– First and foremost, if you are injured, you have to get immediate medical care. You have to tell your doctor what exactly happened so he can treat you accordingly. This can also help establish a detailed medical record that will be useful later.

– The next course of action you should take is to document the injury. Write down an account of the accident as soon as possible so that the details are still clear in your mind. Taking pictures of the scene of the accident is a good idea because the photos can also be used as evidence.

– If the personal injury is from an automobile accident, you will want to inform the police and your insurance company right away so appropriate actions will be taken.

– If your injury happens in the workplace, report what happened to your employer, boss or manager right away.

– Listen to all advice you receive from other people along the way, as some of them may be useful for you. However, do not make decisions impulsively. Think of the pros and cons of whatever action you wish to take.

The key to successful personal injury settlement, although it may seem counterintuitive at the time, is to record and document everything that has happened. Having detailed and tangible evidence is your best defense if your case goes to trial. And even if it does not, having a comprehensive and detailed paper trail at hand will enable better negotiating for you, and you will end up, hopefully, with a higher payout as well. …

Anatomy For Fitness Professionals

How to Master Muscular Anatomy Fast & Avoid the 5 Most Common Anatomy Mistakes
Anatomy = Foundation of Exercise Science

Learning anatomy as a fitness professional is like learning to build a foundation as an architect; it supports everything else!

Everything else is built on top of it!

Personal training is super dynamic and intimate, so I suppose you could make the same claim about personality being fundamentalist; if the client does not want to spend time with you because of your bad attitude or bad communication skills, it really doesnt matter how much you know!

But that is why we break up personal training sills into categories. Because training is so dynamic, it is helpful to break up the various skill sets into 3 key mega-competencies: interpersonal skills, exercise science, and business acumen.

Anatomy and biomechanics are the very foundation of exercise science, with physiology secondary. (What is physiology anyway, except your anatomies response to forces / mechanics?

It really does not matter how much you know about other areas of exercise science, if you do not have a strong foundation in biomechanics and anatomy, you will not be able to accurately and safely apply your knowledge.
Types of Anatomy

Within anatomy, there are multiple focuses; neural anatomy, bony anatomy, muscular anatomy. As a trainer, it is VERY important to keep in mind how many other structures there are in the body that affects its performance and health.

Yes, initially we should be focused on muscular anatomy, but as fitness professionals, we have to keep in mind that we tend to be too focused on muscles sometimes. Often, a tight muscle will tighten because of a fascial restriction! Everything is connected to everything through the fascial network. Just keep this in mind when you are problem solving and studying.

As you advance, more time should be sent on learning more advanced anatomy like fascial anatomy, and the anatomy of the tendons, ligaments, and how they attach to bony surfaces.
Practice Makes Perfect

There are a lot of great tools out there to learn anatomy. Use these tools, the first one is free, and practice with other trainers. Make cards, quiz each other, and try to link the specific names to your own exercise routine when you workout.

[Anatomy for fitness] getbodysmart.com – This website is AWESOME! It is a digital animation of the muscular system. Click and drag a little slider under each joint, and it will build the muscular support system around it from the most deep to the most wonderful. Very cool and definitely worth checking out, you can also click to see each muscles action, which is good but very simplified. (Be sure to read "Most Common Anatomy Mistakes" below). And it's free! Also, you can take a quiz on the site. Every new fitness professional should know about this site and spend time on it, it is great.

Communication Skills – Powerful Tools for Personal and Professional Success

In a well-known study, 3,000 people were asked what scared them most. The number one answer was "public speaking".

Poor communication skills can create chaos in the workplace. The very reason for communication is to be understood. To get positive results, speakers need to understand the effect of their words on others. Listeners need to understand what they hear by avoiding quick judgment and misinterpretation. Strategies for making sure communication is clear and direct so that listeners receive information accurately.

Have you ever expressed an opinion that led others to become defensive or hostile – even if you did not mean it personally? Many people have reasons for believing they're being attacked. Defensive behavior can lead to hurt feelings, arguments and hostilities, often affecting a variety of relationships. The Defensiveness chain that is created impairs communication and reduces productivity. Communicating Non-Defensively shows five essential skills that promote a productive work environment.

1. How to disengage from a defensive position

2. How to empathize and disarm a defensive person

3. How to inquire and focus on the issues

4. How to distribute ones own needs and goals non-defensively

5. How to depersonalize the issues

Good verbal communication is not automatic: we must work hard at it. The ability to speak effectively is one of the most powerful tools for personal and professional success. And because people who speak effectively are perceived as leaders. The four main components of effective speaking for an audience of any size are as follows:

Mental Effectiveness

Visual Effectiveness

Vocal Effectiveness

Verbal Effectiveness

Together, these components make sure communication is clear and direct so that listeners receive information accurately. …
