Relationships matter; 4 attributes of great leaders

first_imgA great manager doesn’t automatically make someone a great leader. A leader must go one big step above managing to understanding and leveraging the power of relationships.“The best leaders take their expert management skills and combine them with people skills to become well rounded and highly successful,” writes Forbes’ Ashira Prossack. “The difference between being a good leader and a great one is in the relationships you build with your team.”She goes on to list four key components of a great leader, including:Coaching, not directing. A good leader helps their teammates grow and develop. “They understand when they need to nurture their teams, and when they need to push them,” Prossack writes.Being adept. Great leaders understand that change is inevitable and can come at any time. They have the ability to rally their teams to make things happen – regardless of any changes that may come. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

As methods to determine body fat directly are difficult, the diagnosis of obesity is often based on Basic metabolic rate (BMI). “Due to the rising prevalence of obesity in children and its many adverse health effects it is being recognized as a serious public health concern,” a statement from the ministry said.One of the ministry’s objectives in the 2011-2012 Operational Plan is to strengthen the Maternal and Child Health Programme through enhanced strategies to address childhood obesity by March 2012. This will enable the staff to collect data on the BMI for the seven to nine year olds and also increase the opportunity for interventions such as counselling and or exercise programs and referrals.The programme commenced on 23 January.A statement from the ministry said, “The first problems to occur in obese children are usually emotional or psychological. Childhood obesity however can also lead to life-threatening conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease, sleeping problems, cancer and other disorders. It is the Ministry’s goal to address obesity and detect as early as possible and correct any correctable defects that are present at this stage of your child’s life.”by Nerissa Goldenlast_img read more

Croatia 2-0 Nigeria: Five things we learned

first_imgIt was a comfortable win at the end of a cagey match for Croatia. An own goal by Etebo in the first half and a Luka Modric penalty in the second helped them secure the 2-0 win and they now go top of the Group D being the only team to have managed to secure a win.Here are five things we learned. NIGERIA’S INEXPERIENCE IN DEFENSE EXPLOITEDPoor marking from the Nigerian defence as they failed to pick out Rebic who flicked on Modric’s corner kick led to the first goal and a moment of naivety from William Ekong led to his manhandling of Mario Mandzukic in the box, leading to the penalty kick which was coolly slotted home by Modric. Nigeria’s vulnerability at set pieces resurfaced as seen in the friendly game against the Czech Republic.NIGERIA SHORT OF ATTACKING IDEASNigeria didn’t know how to break down a very resolute and strong Croatian defence. So many times, they tried to loft the ball to Ighalo but it was ineffective as Dejan Lovren and Vida were first to most of the aerial balls. Considering the height of the Croatian defence, it was very surprising to see Nigeria rely on crosses and long balls. There was also a disconnect between Mikel Obi and the lone striker [Ighalo who was later substituted for Iheanacho] as Mikel often dropped deep. This made the lone striker very isolated up front. Nigeria’s build-up play was also very slow as they often passed the ball backwards and sideways with no intent of creating some attacks of their own. They need to work on their movement up front as they were very disorganized going forward and couldn’t muster any clear-cut opportunity throughout the game. IS MIKEL OBI AN IDEAL NO. 10?Rohr has stuck to Mikel Obi in the no. 10 position but with this display, it is very difficult to see how Nigeria is going to create goal scoring opportunities. Mikel’s tendency to drop deep really hurt the side as there was no creative outlet. For one who spent most of his career playing as a defensive midfielder, Rohr should perhaps consider restoring him to his normal holding midfield role as they will need a lot of creativity against Iceland and Argentina. Mikel offers control and calmness on the ball but his creative ability is really questionable.CROATIA DARING AND WILL SHOOT AT THE SIGHT OF GOALIn the first half, Croatia relied on Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic to control the game from deep. Modric and Rakitic did spray some wonderful passes to wingers Ivan Perisic and Ante Rebic who swapped positions several times and were very threatening. However, aside from the threats from the flanks, Croatia did not fear to take shots as Perisic, Andrej Kramaric and Rakitic didn’t fear to let out shots from distance.IWOBI DIDN’T COME TO THE PARTY It was a frustrating performance for Alex Iwobi who was anonymous for most periods of the game until his substitution in the 62nd minute. He was expected to light up the left flank with some dazzling runs but he was not up to the task. —-Follow the World Cup with the Multimedia Group!
