The Role of Performance Coach in Professional Development 

Performance coaching in professional development is the process of developing, maintaining, and improving an employee’s performance in every business. Managers can use performance coaching to provide constructive feedback that helps managers work with employees to design professional development strategies.

Professional development coaching may vary depending on the employee’s experience. There are five different levels of experience a coach can work on.

Inexperienced Employees

Employees new to the position often require a large amount of instruction and information to understand the role they are playing. Performance coaches can continually assess employees’ progress with this experience level and provide constructive feedback.

Trained Employees

Employees who have been trained in a position may need less instruction as they learn how to perform the job correctly. Performance coaches can use positive reinforcement to motivate employees to keep learning and to become more productive in their position.

Employees with Entry-Level Experience

Entry-level employees may have experience performing their duties according to business standards. Performance coaches can work with these employees by monitoring work results, providing regular feedback, and developing ways to improve outcomes.

Employees with Mid-Level Experience

Mid-level employees typically have extensive knowledge and experience to perform their duties effectively. Performance coaches can assist mid-level employees by assessing areas that need improvement and offering advice where appropriate.

The Executives

Executive-level employees have specialized knowledge in their respective positions, and performance coaches can guide them as employees develop management strategies. Performance coaches can also be a supportive resource for senior executives as they face new challenges with greater responsibilities.

Performance coaches seem to significantly impact an individual’s self-awareness, self-confidence, and growth. They are the mentor of individuals who have an innate desire to do better in life.

A performance coach in India provides a constructive critique of their clients’ weaknesses and help them figure out new ways to improve their weaknesses. Performance coaching is not much different from traditional therapy, but instead of getting insights from one person, it gets insights from multiple people.

Performance coaching is also an emerging industry, with many performance coaches having yet to be certified and licensed. Hence, many misconceptions about them lead to these misconceptions being perpetuated among a large group of people across various industries.

The Power of Social Media Over Elections

Social media dramatically impacts our voting decisions and how we perceive the contest. It is an inexhaustible resource for politicians – they don’t have to look far for messages that will resonate with voters. Candidates can use social platforms as megaphones, not just as a way of connecting with voters but also as a tool for information gathering.

Social Media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook have become prominent tools for influencing public opinion. One study proposed that social media platforms can influence up to 800,000 people to vote in an election. Social media platforms can promote positive engagement or incite harmful online behavior.

Americans are more likely to find and share information on the election on social media than on any other source. With the help of Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media platform, candidates can create their digital footprint and issue statements no matter how outrageous they are. They can attract more audience and followers with realsite.shop.

93% of people use social media to get their news, 69% say they have changed their mind about an issue because of what they saw on social media, and 70% say they have been motivated to take action as a result of something they’ve seen on social media. The question remains: How much power does social media have over elections?

The rise of the internet, social media, and increasing interest in politics have changed how we view elections. Social media is an essential tool for politicians. Social Media does have some advantages over traditional media. 

  • Social media has been used for political activism worldwide, and it’s hard to ignore that it has influenced political conversations throughout election cycles.
  • Social media allows people to share their thoughts and opinions about the candidates in an election. 
  • Social media is not just a form of entertainment but also a powerful tool that can shape public opinion and even alter election outcomes.

Social media has transformed the way elections are conducted.

Social media is a powerful tool in elections and will continue to be. The 2017 US elections saw how social media was used extensively by President-elect Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. There is an apparent power of social media, and if you are running for office, you can’t ignore it; it is crucial for any campaign.

How Politics and Football Are Intertwining

Soccer coach talking to his team

 

We see quite a few football promoters active in politics. In a small series about people who are ‘in politics’ in addition to football, we start with Cock Jol.

Cock, you’ve been away from football for a while, do you still follow it?

Of course, I still follow football, both amateur football and professional football.

You are a teacher, do you see changes in your classes that are reflected in society and therefore also in football?

What I have seen in this time is that many youth players have started to fill in their weekends differently. In recent years, no irregular league matches were played, and there was not even training. But of course, that also applied to other sports. I am concerned about this development. I think the unions and the clubs will certainly notice that.

Incidentally, I must say that I have had a lot of appreciation for our youth. Appreciation for the way in which they have dealt with the situation that has arisen in recent years. I’ve seen that at my school. They adhered very well to the rules assigned to them and also the lessons, which were often provided through Teams, were generally faithfully attended. Of course, my respect also goes out to my colleagues, who had to master various digital matters. Of course, I was one of them. Nevertheless, it is very important that the students can go back to school. They need social contact with their fellow pupils and with their teachers.

Do you still come to clubs? And then when you go to watch a game, where do you go?

Lately, I haven’t been looking physically anymore. Of course, the weather did not invite you to stand along the line. Today the weather is beautiful and probably I will ride my scooter to Quick, because in the last 2 games Quick has won and can come out of the relegation zone if I win.

You show political ambitions for the second time, this time for the VVD. How did your return come about?

I have always been very interested in national and municipal politics. In 2002, as a member of the Political Party Scheveningen, I was already elected on preferential votes and thus came to the City Council of The Hague.

After this instructive period, I entered professional football. In 2014 I came back from London and I started working as a teacher again at my old school the Christian College De Populier. In October 2021, I had a conversation with alderman Anne Mulder at city hall. He asked me if I wanted to be on the VVD’s electoral list for the municipal elections of 2022. I didn’t really have to think about it and I promised.

I thought and think it is a great honor to be a council member in my own city. You can denounce issues and influence issues that are close to the hearts of the citizens. The government must realize that it is there for the citizen and not the other way around. That is very often forgotten. We live in a democracy and as such are elected by the people (demos = people). I believe that too little attention is being paid to the citizens. You see and notice a lot of dissatisfaction among people at the moment. They feel misunderstood.

What kind of politician are you?

I am a liberal-conservative with a social-Christian slant. Nationally, I have always chosen liberal-Christian and I, therefore, think that the VVD suits me best. I am neither extreme right nor extreme left. I love the harmony model. For The Hague, it would be good if there were a coalition with at most 3 parties. That would be good for decision-making. Fragmentation always causes a lot of unrest. I think most people think that way.

How important is a sport in general for a city like The Hague? What role do you think politics should play when it comes to sports in the Haaglanden region?

I think that the responsible aldermen for Sport in recent decades have invested too little in grassroots sport or top sport. There is a lack of a real sports culture in our city, let alone top sports culture. Our heroes from The Hague, who have delivered top performances, are not pampered and honored for their achievements. Ask our average citizen in The Hague if they can name some current top athletes, then they do not know. In England and Germany, for example, the champions are heroes for life.

In the 80s/90s we had top athletes or top teams in every branch of sport. A.o. Hellas (handball), Ons Eibernest (korfball), KZ or HGC (hockey), Hijs (ice hockey), and so on. The same thing happens with our music heroes. It is a shame that the Museum RockArt is located in Hoek van Holland. We have always been pop city number 1 in the Netherlands. There was no suitable location available!! The then alderman of Culture Van Asten should have done everything in his power in 2019 to find a good, spacious location.

How do you think the municipality acted in the takeover of ADO Den Haag?

I do not want to say anything about the course of events regarding the takeover of ADO. Maybe one thing. A few years ago, an alderman for Sport said that ADO should never again be in the hands of a foreign investor. That only creates problems, he said. Anyway, let’s be happy that ADO has been saved and hopefully will be a good eredivisionist again. That would be great!

Count that you are elected with preferential votes, what would you like to tackle in and for The Hague?

I have several things that I am worried about, but I am not alone in this. In many programs of the various parties, there are practically the same themes. What I have noticed in my many conversations with residents in every neighborhood, is that they are worried about what is happening especially in their own neighborhood or street. The aldermen and councilors need to be more involved with the residents and listen to their stories. Listening to what keeps them busy.

Of course, we cannot solve everything, but I have noticed that a listening ear already removes a lot of resentment. My appeal to those in charge of our city will be to Come out of that “Ice Palace” and go among the people and stop those long meetings. Use the council meetings only to reach a final decision. Use the committee meetings for debate. Be transparent and show that you are there for the citizen. Politics must regain the trust of the people.

Will we ever see you back in football?

No, I will not come back to football, but I will always be interested in this beautiful sport.

Do you want to say something else?

I do hope that the Hague voter will give me his or her vote on 15/16 March, so that I can come to the council on preferential votes. I think I can do something for the inhabitant of The Hague to make our beautiful city even more beautiful.

Politicians Should Be On TikTok More

TikTok

 

The turnout of young people in the last parliamentary elections was low. These voting campaigns are aimed at young people who want to do something about that. “Life experience does not depend on age.”

Although the age of Dutch politicians is not as high as in the United States, with an average age of 48 years in the House of Representatives, there is also a lack of youth representation here. As the turnout of young people has declined since the last elections, the gap between youth and politics only seems to be widening. Digital youth campaigns are trying to close this gap and are committed to getting the youth to the polls.

Voting by mail

Where the turnout for the 2017 parliamentary elections was more than 80 percent, one in three young people between the ages of 18 and 24 stayed at home. But the turnout is not only low, young people are also the smallest group of voters. Due to the aging of the population, the number of older people compared to young people is increasing. For example, nearly a quarter of eligible voters are over the age of 65. In the upcoming parliamentary elections, an even larger turnout is expected among the over-70s, because they are allowed to vote by mail due to the coronavirus.

Young people quickly vote for the party for which their parents vote, without them looking critically’, says Iris Zoet, who started the podcast KiesAdvies with her friend Isa de Beer in September last year. ‘All political podcasts are about current events, which you don’t understand if you don’t have background information’, says Zoet. ‘Isa came up with the idea of listing what all parties stand for and explaining that in a podcast.’ According to Zoet, young people do not see themselves and the subjects they deal with in the House of Representatives. “And when those topics are covered, it’s in a dusty way,” she says. “That’s why we don’t want people on our podcast that you already see everywhere.”

Tiktok

In addition to a podcast, Zoet and De Beer on Instagram have started the campaign #stemopeentwintiger. In it, they call for the youngest candidate of a party to be voted for, so that he or she gets preferential votes in the House of Representatives. One of those young candidates is Carline van Breugel for D66. She also tries to encourage young people to vote for a young candidate, by offering an overview of which young people are on the candidate lists. In addition, she is active on TikTok. “A lot of politicians aren’t there,” she says, “because a lot of young people who are on TikTok aren’t allowed to vote yet. But also for people who are not yet allowed to vote, it is important to know what is going on.’ Politicians who want to be more active on TikTok may click here to leverage the platform.

Safe space

Van Breugel wants to emphasize that, although her campaign revolves around young people, she also lacks representation in other areas. As portfolio holder diversity of the Young Democrats, the youth branch of D66, she often notices that people avoid the subject of diversity for fear of using the wrong words. ‘I want to create a safe space for white people. In addition, I am bisexual and I want to go to a country where you no longer have to come out of the closet in four years.’

#zetjestemnietopmute

The public broadcaster has also set up a voting campaign for young people. With #zetjestemnietopmute, NPO 3 Funx and 3FM have joined forces to bring young people and politics closer together with ‘accessible, funny and at the same time informative content.’ Another initiative is that of the Electors. These young men organize large interactive shows and create podcasts to educate a young audience about social issues and elections.

With the criticism that young people do not have enough life experience for politics, candidate MP Carline van Breugel does not agree. “Life experience is not related to age,” she says. ‘Understanding the starting point of the group is important to make policy that is in line with young people. It’s a stereotypical argument.’

Before the action of 1938 that introduced regulations on the makeup sector, tracked and maintained by the FDA, the makeup industry was infamous for using poisonous ingredients like ginseng, lead, and radium.

Upgraded regulations have been broadly welcomed, using a greater customer concentrate on the security of the merchandise they use in addition to the integrity that underpins them take the rising belief that creature testing ought to be prohibited for instance.

The beauty business has changed a whole great deal because regulations were brought into force in 1938, together with companies like Verso Skincare increasing in popularity and supplying more innovative products, such as Facial Cleansing Brushes, than in the past. New ingredients have been found all of the time, together with lots of trials and studies have been conducted into the efficacy of unique ingredients in skincare products along with the cosmetics that a number of us place on our own bodies.

Further Political Things in the Business

It had been said at the onset of the article the beauty market is worth billions of dollars into the US market. Obviously, this contributes to considerable political interest concerning economics. Different political allegiances will require differing perspectives on the economics supporting big businesses, together with the conventional left perspective being that of presenting taxation on the earnings and profits from big businesses and regulating their merchandise. On the flip side, what could stereotypically be regarded as a right-wing and conservative perspective are the decrease in taxes for companies and making it easy for organizations to produce trade and products as potential; via tax breaks and advantages as well as a limit of regulations. The social justice and moral campaigns frequently pushed forwards by modern-day manufacturers appeal to younger, more and generally more liberal, viewers — however, the business-minded political perspectives of people who have these businesses may differ in the customers who buy in their brands.

What’s going to occur with regulations encompassing makeup remains to be seen, however, something that is guaranteed is that politicians will always are interested in this sector that is wealthy.

Damaging Link Building Ideas to Steer Clear of

Before we get into how you are able to gain backlinks to your website, it is important to understand what sort of traffic you should avoid at any cost. There’s nobody stopping you from acquiring a backlink from everywhere, and that is where in lies the danger.

In case you choose to go for the incorrect kind of backlinks, you will get a greater probability of being penalized by Google. Based on how poor these backlinks are, you might wind up obtaining an algorithmic or even a manual punishment.

Say No to Many Irrelevant Link Building

As soon as it’s not possible to be 100% secure from insignificant links, you ought to at least attempt to steer clear of the majority. Concentrate on being relevant together with your link building as far as you can. You need to get a reputable link building services agency.

Say No Public Networks

Purchasing backlinks is simple on the net, particularly from a public community. And that is what makes them poor. You won’t find those networks calling themselves, but that is exactly what they are. No “private blog network” promotes in the start.

The thing to know here is, public networks really are poor for link building. Not simply because they seem unethical, but also because Google hasn’t preferred them. In reality, any site that’s leveraging this type of community receives in the bad books of Google. Which means their standing can go for a throw. Google understands precisely how to recognize those public networks, because of those red flags.

  • Red flag #1: You locate a massive number of outgoing connections on the site of those networks, and Google understands a normal homepage won’t connect to 50-60 sites.
  • Red flag #2: These incoming links aren’t in any way relevant to the community, nor to every other. You might discover a link to your gaming site right aside from a backlink to a fitness site.
  • Red flag #3: The majority of the content published on these networks resides from the pre-Google-Panda era. To put it differently, it is super-thin.

Say No to Do-Follow Blog Comments

As we will look farther in this blog post, blog commenting for link building isn’t bad. It is only bad once you do it wrong.

A site that accepts do-follow backlinks in the remark usually sees spammers thronging it. A massive number of inbound links which aren’t applicable is a large red flag.

Strictly speaking, you do not need your connection in exactly the exact same area of those backlinks. Because being at the “bad neighborhood” will send the incorrect signal to Google. The further you avoid this kind of environment, the greater it is to enhance SEO for your website.

Say No to Sidebar/Footer Links

People may assert that there isn’t anything wrong to receive your backlink put from the sidebar or footer. But, there’s still risk with this kind of positioning of backlinks due to the fact that they seem just like sponsored/paid links. Even if your goal is real, Google would not have any idea.

Additionally, it’s contrary to the principles of Google to market any kind of traffic, but that is precisely what sellers do. You’ll end up in a terrible neighborhood again. Odds are that the majority of these websites aren’t pertinent to your link. However, that does not prevent a seller from saying yes to any deal that comes their way to your money’s sake.

Quality connection building does not need to be complex. Actually, at times it is as straightforward as requesting bloggers or other pertinent sites to link to you. It isn’t important if your website is new or when you know a few people in your specialty. You could always approach little and medium-sized websites which have already connected to websites like yours.

The Reasons People Need Access to Government Websites

Browsing a website

 

Here is the next in a series of articles about how I’m taking forward aim two of this only domain: namely the “private beta test using a shared ‘corporate’ publishing platform targeted at replacing the majority of the activity now hosted on several departmental publishing surroundings”. By business, we suggest that the areas of the government net estate – now accessed through different domains like bis.gov.uk, dh.gov.uk along with number10.gov.uk – that explain the objectives and intent of government’s many businesses, describe in detail the job they perform, and supply advice about how they’re doing it to get transparency and responsibility.

This post is all about the demands that the beta version of the corporate publishing stage will be made to fulfill, and how I’ve gone about replying to two simple questions:

  1. Why can authorities organizations have corporate sites? And,
  2. What exactly do people need when they see them?

However, before we dive into what and why I need to give you awareness of just how many people that.

Just how many men and women are using these websites?

Lots. The typical monthly unique visitors to the central government’s present company websites vary from 3,000 (cheapest ) to 4.3 million (maximum ). Crudely, this places the entire audience at roughly 12 million individuals – not counting on the sites of agencies as well as other arms-length bodies, so a lot of who stunt their parent’s sections (belief, by way of instance, of their Met Office). A high percentage of visits range from users – roughly 40 percent. Users are highly engaged, signaling an average of 4 times a trip. (Hat tip to Adam Bailin for those amounts).

Who are those individuals?

Everyone. Visitors into government’s corporate websites have been best described as “individuals that are professionally or personally considering the job or workings of government” – much more of a manner compared to a demographic. There is unsurprisingly a prejudice towards the professionally curious: visitors drop away from the weekends and evenings.

While the wide category is potential, visitors resist neat categorization. Surveys of consumers of those sites have a tendency to throw up a good deal of “other people”. To give you a flavor, here is how 10 consumers (chosen entirely at random) explained themselves in recent polls from the Ministry of Justice along with Department for Business, Innovation, and Skills.

Ministry of Justice

  • Neighbourhood see growth officer
  • Enforcement scientist
  • Partner of captive
  • Claimant in bankruptcy case
  • Interpreter

Department for Business, Innovation, and Skills

  • HR adviser from the NHS
  • Further schooling compliance officer
  • Board member of a third company firm
  • Dietician
  • Local authorities officer

Making sense of this tail of demands

With such a selection of individuals interested in such many different topics, it was apparent early on I would need to take a longer coarse-grained way of identifying consumer needs than was completed to your citizen-facing region of the domain. A fine-grain research à la (brilliant) Needotron 5000 could have bogged me down into analysis paralysis and forced shipping by early 2012 hopeless.

Whatever the scenario, rough granularity makes great sense. My aim in this practice was to set the demands that could be fulfilled by tags for articles instead of the material itself. My immediate task is to produce the proper shelves; after I will use Departments to inventory them and throughout this time we’ll have to believe carefully about the why and who for each and every single thing we insert (and then update or eliminate).

Additionally, I picked – unsurprisingly given my desktop to examine the government’s motives to their corporate sites, like an eye on how compatible they are with what consumers expect, and since pragmatically I want to fulfill both sets of demands should this item will be quite a hit.

I set about collecting just enough information to fulfill those goals and no longer, inquiring Whitehall’s webbies to send their:

  • Search meta information, site analytics, consumer surveys, and study insights (everything they have on who comes for their own websites along with what they are Searching to get).
  • Site plan records, propositions, and KPIs (any recorded believing from the sections about the aims, viewers, and achievement measures for their websites)

I have 70 files straight right back, speed-read the great deal, and dried them to different lists of consumer wants and government objectives. I ran the outcomes beyond electronic leaders in sections to get a feeling check and organized to get another set of eyes (the fantastic Mo Brooks at COI) to tidy up the copies and set them into topics.

Below are the raw effects of that function: download the Excel document or even see it on Scribd.

I wait to put any spin on the outcome but would love to share only 3 observations that jumped out at me throughout the procedure. Your mileage might vary.

  1. Users need the most recent stuff. Since I flicked through search keywords (like using Helium10 with my Helium10 coupon code for Amazon sellers), many viewed pages, and said reasons for seeing, it felt overwhelmingly true that consumers of corporate websites want to find information about current statements.
  2. In addition, they need very specific stuff that is present (as different from current ), and are on the lookout for this by generic search phrases (e.g. by DECC: “energy efficiency”), by record names (“climate shift behave 2008”) or termed competitions (“renewable heating incentive”).
  3. There is a two-way dating involving clients and government officials that corporate websites could do a lot more to encourage. Where government and user want to react suitably (e.g. understand/explain, influence/consult( remain informed/announce) and in which they do not (have to account/get favorable PR, lobby/campaign), there’s a tacit discussion along with a desire to affect behavior in either direction. In case the only domain should happen to encourage this greater, it would have to be of a conduit for both policymakers and their viewers to take part in dialog and open exchange of data, to cultivate a better comprehension of each individual’s wants and requirements.

The next step for this work will be to map wants to formats – that we have begun on today – and also to keep iterating those lists because we grow and analyze the beta merchandise with consumers.
