Control your Anger

Anger is a natural response that we all experience. Some of us feel this emotion more frequently than others. Similarly, some of us control our emotions better than others.
Anger leaves a bad taste in your mouth in the sense that it transmits a lingering feeling of negativity. The angrier you get the deeper the emotional reaction and the longer the bad taste lingers. 
Whilst it can be quite healthy to quickly vent one's angry feelings, this should be distinguished from a prolonged rant. The former gets the emotion out and leaves it there. You can then return to a comfortable state of equanimity and turn your focus to better things. The latter, however, has quite a different long-term effect. The ranting serves to anchor the negativity and embed it more deeply thereby ensuring that it is more difficult to shift and move away from.
When you are angry your emotional state is in turmoil. When you wish to control anger you have a choice as to how you go about achieving this aim.
You could approach the subject of overcoming anger from the perspective of changing your thoughts. Thoughts create emotions and these determine your actions. By choosing to change your thoughts to something that is more peaceful you will inevitably begin to feel calmer and more relaxed. The anger will shift along with the focus of your thoughts.
An alternative approach to overcoming anger is to focus upon your emotional state. Although I just said that thought creates emotions that in turn predict behavior, your mind and body interact in a two-way process. Just as mind works upon body the reverse is also the case.
When you are angry everything in your body feels tense. Everything is tight. Your breathing is shallower and more rapid and your heart beats at a swifter rate. Adrenalin flows and you are poised to fight. This is the state that anger creates.
You could beat a cushion and get the tension out that way. You could run it off. Or you could focus upon your state and intentionally shake your muscles loose, deepen your breathing and calm your heart rate.
Hypnosis provides a way in which you can control anger from both angles. Hypnosis is in itself a state of relaxation and so merely by using hypnosis you change both your focus and your state. With hypnosis you can create a state of relaxed awareness at a moments notice and step back from situations so as to see them from a different angle.
There is an added benefit to using hypnosis in that it provides access to your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind is the part where automatic patterns of thought and reaction are stored. If your anger thermostat has gotten used to being turned up higher than you wish you could make suggestions to lower this threshold and hence not rise to the bait so swiftly or frequently. This intervention can be achieved easily and quickly simply by listening to a hypnosis mp3 download.

Employees and Company: The Company Culture

What does ‘company culture’ mean?
Company culture relates to the behaviors of a set of individuals within the same work environment; how they act, the values they describe to these actions, their personal goals and how these fit in with the goals of the organization, where they work, and how individuals interact with others in this environment.
It relates to the understanding of a company’s mission, visions and goals by the whole of the workforce; ideally, every person in the organization will know what the company wants to achieve and work towards this in every instance. It is not enough for an individual to do their tasks because they know it is what is required of them; they should do it because they know it will benefit the company, which they feel a part of
What's the best way to keep your workers happy? This question arises everywhere but what is the answer? Competitive salaries and benefits can certainly contribute to employee satisfaction, but a strong, supportive company culture can be just as important to retaining your top employees.
"Culture unleashes the power and energy of every individual in the organization," said Manish Goel, CEO of business analytics solutions provider Guavus. "No matter how much work is put into developing strategies, all have to work in an environment where they feel they can succeed and are supported. A great culture isn't something that's stagnant and can always exist as-is. It is liquid and has to be fostered. I firmly believe that organizations get the best out of people by having a one-team mindset and an attitude of trust."
Why is a good company culture important?
A strong culture helps an organisation to work like a well-oiled machine, where every employee responds to events because of what they know about the company’s values. Little control needs to be exercised over employees in companies with a good work culture because they all know what needs to be done, why and how, and work automatically to achieve it.
Weak cultures, on the other hand, do not have the same kind of alignment to company values, so more effort needs to be placed in controlling employees to keep them on track.
Clearly there is an advantage to a good company culture: less monitoring is required by the higher-ups, and the work that is done is of a higher value to the company.
A company with a clear culture will be able to easily induct new employees into the company’s set of beliefs and encourage ways of working that cohere to the company’s goals and visions as a whole. Employees within a company with a good culture are also more engaged, motivated to succeed and display more organisational loyalty, which can take the form of being less likely to leave the company and being more likely to become an advocate of the organisation.
An increase in team cohesiveness is also a by-product of a good company culture. Individuals know where they stand within a team, trust everyone else to do a good job, feel valued and feel like their contribution is important. This all combines to create a good team working environment, where all members are able to contribute for the good of the whole, like – as mentioned earlier – a well-oiled machine.
So clearly a good company culture is something to aspire to. Not only does it breed a good working environment, but it is beneficial for individuals, teams, departments and organisations as a whole. What’s not to like?
5 quick tips to improve your company culture!
1.   First, identify where you’re going wrong. Think about how your organisation would work if your company culture was perfect (you can use the above section as a basis for comparison).
2.   Work on communication: create communication channels throughout your company so that key messages are heard by everyone and understood. Get everyone on the same page! 
3.   It is clear that being engaged at work and having a good company culture are linked. Increasing engagement can help to bring about a culture change.
4.   Encourage employees to take pride in their work by rewarding them for great effort. 
5.   Finally, invest in learning, training and increasing employee knowledge. If employees feel that they are valued enough to receive training, they’re more likely to be happy at work and be willing to work towards the values of the company. Hey presto, a good company culture!


What are the different types of degree-granting institutions (universities/colleges) in India?
What is the enrollment of Indian students by level of education?
What are the top fields of study for Indian Students?
These are some of the frequently asked questions about data and statistics related to the size and scale of Indian higher education system. Given below is the latest information available from University Grants Commission of India.

With 700 universities and more than 35,000 affiliated colleges enrolling more than 20 million students, Indian higher education is a large and complex system. The structure of degree-granting institutions is cumbersome primarily due to "affiliation" and funding sources. More than 85% of students are enrolled in bachelor's degree programs with majority enrolling in three-year B.A., B.Com. Or B.Sc. Degrees. One-sixth of all Indian students are enrolled in Engineering/Technology degrees.
