Behavioral & Professional Simplicity

  1. 1. Behavioral and Professional Simplicity Dhaval Dalal software-artisan.com
  2. 2. dhaval.dalal@software-artisan.com “YOU!” are at the core YOU are a living and growing entity. YOU are working for something greater than yourself. YOU grow by inspiring innovative ideas.

Everyone's growth depends on the conditions created by the Organization. 2
  3. 3. dhaval.dalal@software-artisan.com 3 Constant Innovation There is value in doing something without being an expert at it. Explore possibilities to discover hidden things. Go beneath the veil. Analyze the problem or information from different angles. These new ways lead to new ideas and distinct insights. Exploration Discovery Discovery Discovery Leads to

  15. 15. dhaval.dalal@software-artisan.com 8 Excellence in Action Work done in true spirit is meditation. The Mother Effort and Self-Reward Equation 25% Effort --> A sense of Satisfaction. 50% Effort --> A sense of Attainment. 100% Effort --> A sense of Fulfillment. The quality of the work and the quality of the worker are inseparable. Become what you are doing, rather than someone who just works.
  16. 16. dhaval.dalal@software-artisan.com 9 Respect Ideas An open mind is flexible; it evaluates, accepts or rejects ideas/ concepts based on truth and merit. Inclusiveness in work process. “I-know-it-all” attitude does NOT help!
  17. 17. dhaval.dalal@software-artisan.com 10 DON’T run down each other! Resolve conflicts professionally. Manage facts impartially. Value People
  18. 18. dhaval.dalal@software-artisan.com 11 Professionalism Professionals make things look easy as they have mastered the fundamentals of whatever they do. Instill trust by demonstrating skills creatively and effectively. Be sensitive to the situations and perspectives in your context. Share findings and knowledge, know and support Co-workers. Identify pitfalls and potential problems. Shiv Khera
  19. 19. dhaval.dalal@software-artisan.com 12 Courtesy Courtesy opens the door that would not open otherwise. “Please”, “Thank you”, “I’m sorry”, “May I?” seems trivial to use, but takes a person long way, when meant and said. Shiv Khera Rudeness is the weak man’s imitation of strength. Eric Hoffer Sometimes, we do not have business problems, we have people problems. When we solve our people problems, our business problems are substantially resolved.
  20. 20. dhaval.dalal@software-artisan.com 13 Tenacity Build a “Can Do” attitude. Develop a strong will to resist odds. Continue to exercise your will, the goal will be reached. Take up one thing. Follow it, see the end of it, and before you have seen the end do not give it up. Swami Vivekananda ! "
