Clear the path of employee performance

On January 11th, 2015, posted in: News management by

Dear friends & colleagues,

Clear the path of employee performance

If the team does fight the system or withdraws, frustration is in developing and something needs to be done.

You like to help, motivate them and would like to try to change the system.

1.      Invite your employees to meet with you to discuss the situation.

2.      Let them tell you their perceptions and feelings. What problem(s) have they perceived? Sure, you may know it already, but they need to be involved from the start. Besides, what if you have missed or misinterpreted something?

3.      Ask them to suggest ways to improve the situation. Welcome any and all suggestions, no matter how unrealistic they appear, for two reasons: A, you want to encourage open thinking, so you’re not just reaching to a problem, but thinking in terms of the big picture. B, if  the problem requires action, its probably already caused a lot of negative feelings – and a forum can help everybody express those feelings and vent.

4.      Decide together on the best solution. Seek consensus in doing this. “Best” here may mean easiest or most practical or ideal , depending on your situation. Or it may mean several solutions.

5.      Determine who will take charge of the solution. Don’t volunteer: let your employees decide. If they want to take charge, you should accept only if you don’t empower one or more of them to do so. But you should also involve a few of them: this is a shared action, a collaborative project.

6.      Set a schedule. Who will be doing what and by when?

7.      Schedule a meeting to evaluate the effects of the action. 

 

                        Checklist

Ø   Think in terms of the “whole system”. Every organization is complex

         Social and mechanical system, with dynamic connections among forces  

         and patterns. Factors above and beyond your immediate work area

         substantially influence the motivation of your employees.

 

Ø   Never underestimate the impact of social interaction on the business system.

 

Ø   Managers appreciate employees who can adapt to the system. But there is a

         Cost: employees who are continually adapting to systems will fight the

         Systems, accept the situation or withdraw. Adapting is stressful for most

Ø   If there are restraining forces undermining the motivation of your employees

         Consider working with your employees to change the system, to remove or 

         reduce these forces

Ø   Don’t sub-optimize the system. Provide whatever resources, responsibilities

         Rewards, and respect your employees need to do their jobs better, but from a 

         systems perspective. Territorial attitudes hurt the organization , as actions to 

         improve the situation in one area often make the situation  worse in other areas.

Ø   Think and act in terms of the greater good of the system .That way, you and

         your employees will help the entire organization achieve optimal results.

Ø   People – and you as a manager, may pay the price in terms of the effects on employees’ motivation and performance.

Aloe Vera

On January 11th, 2015, posted in: News chefs by

Dear friends & colleagues,

Please find below some info about Aloe Vera, which can be used in many different ways in today’s modern cooking, certainly for all various international cuisines.

Aloe Vera

Aloes  ( Aloe Socotrina ), ( Aloe Barbadensis ), ( Liliaceace )

Common Names:  Bombay Aloes, Turkey Aloes, Moka Aloes, Zanzibar Aloes, Barbados or Curacao Aloe

Parts used: Juice, condensed juice of the leaves, freeze dried,

Nature:    Bitter, cold

Affinity:  Liver, stomach, large intestines, skin

Effects:   Purgative (0.3-1g); laxative (0.06-0.2g)

Indications: Stomachic, refrigerant, antiseptic, emmenagogue, dizziness, headache and delirium due to liver inflammations, intestinal parasites

Feature: Aloe , a genus of nearly 200 species of mostly East and South African succulent plants.

The properties of this plant were known to the ancient Greeks and it has been gathered

On Socotra for over 2,000 years.

 

Aloe thrives in warm regions and grows wild in Florida,  South & North

America. But is as well cultivated in the West Indies, Russia, India and South East Asia especially in Thailand.

Description: It is much like succulent cactus in texture. The leaves are usually elongated, of a deep brown or olive color, frequently pointed, blunt or spiny-toothed, sometimes

Blotched or mottled. The stem is commonly short and the strong , fibrous root produces a base rosette of fleshly leaves.The tissue in the center of the leaf contains a mucilaginous

Gel that yields aloe gel or Aloe Vera Gel.

When Columbus set sail for America, he wrote in his diary: “All is well, aloe is on board”!

Aloe was the material used to embalm Pharaoh Ramses II and to preserve the body of Jesus Christ.

The taste is peculiar and bitter, powder is bright yellow. The red or yellow tubular flowers are found on a stalk in simple or branded clusters. These properties change somewhat in the different varieties, some species being tree-like with forked branches.

Aloe Bainesii grows to heights of 65 ft. and 15 ft. wide at the base. Other species of Aloe

Are often cultivated in gardens of succulents, including the miniature ones are grown in homes; they require strong light and careful watering.

The “American Aloe” is not an Aloe, but “ Agave Americana.

 

Medical part: The insipid juice of the leaves, which is a greenish translucent salve-like

Substance.

The medicine doctors rave about:

Probably no other single herb in modern times has been so well spoken of in regard to its many marvelous healing virtues by members of the medical and dental professions as has Aloe Vera.

Solvent is water.

Bodily influence: Tonic Purgative, Emmenagogue, Anthelmintic.

Uses: Aloes are one of the most sovereign agents we have among the herbal medicines, being cleansing to the morbid matter of the stomach, liver, spleen, kidney and bladder.

Does not gripe, is very healing and soothing to all the tissue, blood and lymph fluids it obliges.

Aloe Vera reduces internal heat, promotes bowel movements, destroys worms, good for constipation, suppression of menstruation, convulsions in children

It is highly alkaline and an excellent source of natural vitamin E.

It is slightly laxative and one can drink Aloe Vera gel in water and slimming teas or add it to fruit juices.

Drinking Aloe Vera juice reduces the stomach acid and hunger. Its slightly bitter taste

And the alkaline quality makes it cooling and refreshing.

Appetite is increased by hot foods and spices such as ginger, pepper, cardamom, anise,

Caraway and garlic, because they stimulate acids and enzymes (digestive  chi )

To reduce gnawing hunger, use cooling spices such as cumin, dill, mint and fennel in cooking or as tea.

Aloe should never be used in pregnancy, or by itself when persons are suffering from haemorrhoids.

Externally: Aloes show the same cleansing power for external application. A piece of white linen or cotton saturated in Aloe water and applied to fresh wounds, as well old ones, are quickly closed.

The fresh juice or solution made from dried leaves, is soothing to tender sunburns, insect bites, over-exposure to X-ray or other emollient uses.

In radio and X-ray treatment given on the skin, it is important to remember that Aloe leaves prepared with Castor oil or Eucalyptus oil are healing and a moisturizer in prevention against further complications.

Russian experience: Aloe Vera is cultivated in Russia in many houses as a decorative and medical plant. The Soviet Government cultivates Aloe Vera for commercial and industrial purposes in the Black Sea coastal area.

Uses: Medical science gives prominent place for this herb and others of the same family.

The famous academician, B.R. Fillatow, makes an extract of Aloe Vera for treatment of eye conditions and injections for run-down organisms.

Extract of the leaves , Sabur, is common in hospitals and in all dispensaries used as a

Laxative. The influence stimulates the gall-bladder by increasing its secretions. As a rule it is safe to use Aloe Vera, as it is established by Folk Medicine.

 

Nutritional Properties:

Aloe Vera consists contains 96% water, providing water to injured tissue without closing off the air necessary for tissue repair. “ The remaining 4% of the pulp”, states Runner’s World magazine for December 1981, “ contains complex carbohydrate molecules, believed essential to Aloe’s natural value as a moisturizer. Substances present include:

Enzymes, trace sugars, a protein containing 18 amino acids, vitamin F, minerals like sulphur, silicon, iron, calcium, copper, sodium, potassium, manganese and more.The mixture of active ingredients in Aloe is called Aloin and is obtained from the gel in the leaf. It is responsible for the plant’s detoxifying and cleansing properties.

In Chinese Medicine, called “lu hui “, this herb is used as a laxative and with all such medicinal, habitual use can lead to dependency.
