Attract Girls in Three Simple Steps

The three important things which helps a guy attract a girl.

Communication Skill 

Communication is an important skill to be developed in order for a guy to attract girls. Often, guys are neglecting this influential basic skill. Communication skill is the foundation of anything, including how to attract any girls you want. To put it simple, there is no way for you to attract girls unless you are a good communicator.

The excellence of being a person is represented by the way they talk and converse with others. Girls make a judgment of you based on the initial 5 minutes they make conversation with you. That's why some people say that the first impression is the most vital thing. So, if you think that the communication skill is not going to make a vast difference in attracting girls, than you should re-think again.

You Should Have a Self Respect 

This is the most key secret of all. If you can't admire yourself, you are more likely can't respect others. Girls are very fascinated to guys who respect themselves and know their true self worth. Girls know that if a guy can value themselves than he will certainly respect her and take care of her like a true woman. Just keep in mind that the more value you add to yourself equals to the more attractive you would become to girls

Never Chase Girls 

I know it's tough not to chase girls, but the truth is, girls hate when a man is after them. However, they will love a man who has girls chasing him. If he is already being chased by other girls than he automatically become a rare commodity and girls are always in the lookout for men who are wanted by other girls. As you see, it's really is a simple perception.

Personal Factors Affecting Decision-Making of Managers

The decision made over the same issue by different managers may not be the same. This happens in view of personal differences. The following personal factors also influence Managerial Decisions:

    1.       Intellectual Ability:

                        The mental ability of two individuals will not be the same. People differ in their capacity to perceive, understand and analyze any given problem. Such a difference is reflected in their decisions.

    2.       Experience:

                        A manager with considerable experience may not encounter problems while evolving decisions even on crucial matters. This is obviously because he would have already come across such situations in his career. A manager who lacks experience, on the other hand, may fumble.

   3.       Sentiments and Values:

                       Every manager has his own values, beliefs and sentiments. Some managers may be pragmatic in their approach and may evolve a practical decision each time. On the other hand, there are still some others who may like to play safe and go by convention or custom.

   4.       Courage:

                    Undoubtedly, The manager needs courage to evolve and implement certain decisions on sensitive issues.

   5.       Level of Motivation, Self-Confidence, etc:

                      A manager with a high level of motivation and self-confidence may not be afraid of the reaction to his decisions. He will not bother even if his decision does not get the approval of everyone. He is sure of the success of his decision.

Skills Expected of a Manager

Management is the art of getting things done by others. The manager will be able to get things done by his subordinates only if he possesses the following skills:

Technical Knowledge and Skill: 

The manager must have technical skill for the efficient performance of his work. He must have complete knowledge of the technical aspects of work. A production manager, for example, must know the type of raw materials to be used, the proportion, the production process and the manner of handling various machines.  A finance manager must have thorough knowledge of working capital management, cost of capital, ratios, fund flow and cash flow analysis and so on.

The manager will be able to guide his subordinates well only if he is technically competent in his line of work.

Knowledge of Human Relations: 

The manager must be capable of understanding human relations. Only then he will be able to motivate his subordinates to work harder. Employees cannot be handled in the manner machines are handled. An employee is disturbed not only by the happenings in the work place but also by what happens in his personal life. The manager must, therefore, understand human psychology to be successful. He should not be harsh in his approach. If the work related problems of an employee are genuine, the manager must help him to find a remedy. Counseling is recommended to enable the employees to get rid of their personal problems.

In the work place, the employees work as a group or team. The behavior of an individual will be different when he is part of a group. For example, an individual worker may not strike work but if he is induced by trade union, he may participate in a strike program organized to safeguard the interests of the workers in general.

Workers need to be constantly motivated to perform better. Motivation need not be necessarily be in form of monetary rewards. Non-monetary methods like participation in decision- making, greater authority or even a word of appreciation will certainly motivate workers.

To be able to get things done by subordinates, the manager must be good in understanding the human behavior.

Imaginative Skill: 

Only a manager who is blessed with imaginative skill will be able to conceive creative ideas. Management is dynamic in nature. Age-old and conventional practices need to be replaced by modern ideas. In case of accounting, for example, most concerns these days use such software as the ‘Tally” in place of conventional accounting system. Letter correspondence is now considered outdated. Business clients are being advised through Internet and Cell phones.

The imaginative skill of the manager will enable him to come out with innovative ideas. Such innovative ideas will help to bring out new product, to explore a new market and so on.
