How to Download and Use Telegram with WhatsApp on a Smartphone with Limited Space

Telegram chat settings
Source: Telegram

Instant messaging is critical to us in the information age and whether it is to promote our business, efficiency or establish and maintain personal relationships, platforms that allow us communicate are vitally important to us.

WhatsApp is the undisputed champion in this area with over 1.5 billion active users in 180 countries according to Statista. One could be easily forgiven for not wanting to bother about another messaging app as many of us also have Messenger from Facebook which you can also access albeit in a limited version on the Facebook website.

Telegram is a messaging app that is similar to WhatsApp but at the same time quite different in ways that make it very attractive to have on your phone as a second or third messaging app. Currently estimated to have over 350 million users globally (Statista), some of its more interesting features you might be interested in are:

1. Bots

These are programs that used to automate certain repetitive tasks that people might find tiring like welcoming every new member to your group with a customized message, setting reminders that help you make regularly updates to schedule, answering faqs and other activities too numerous to mention. Based on machine learning and artificial intelligence, the presence of bots is a really nice feature of Telegram.

2. Secrecy and Privacy

One of the early selling points of Telegram its end-to-end encryption and the ability to have secret chats and even schedule messages to get auto-deleted after a while. This is a nice feature that allows you avoid certain complications that can arise from security and privacy issues.

3. Ability to Edit Sent Messages

You can edit the messages you have already sent on Telegram. If you feel frustrated that you have error-filled messages that you do not want to delete on WhatsApp, you might value this Telegram feature.

4. Groups and Super Groups on Telegram

You can create groups or super groups reaching up to 200,000 members, appoint Admins, have binned messages, use bots in the groups and so on. It is a really attractive feature of the app.

5. @Username Multiple and Profile Pictures 

There is the opportunity to select a @username just like Twitter, which is handy for branding and there is also the option to select multiple profile pictures which might be great for creating memorable first impressions with other people online.

6. Channels

Similar to the same concept on BBM, Channels allows people to connect with a brand, cause, organization or celebrity without having to be added to the group or chat with multiple people you are not interested in relating with. Stay updated without having to engage with other parties.

7. Live Location Sharing

If you do not mind being easily tracked, you can share your location on Telegram, this can also be useful if you are going to a place that you are not too sure of. A trusted person can check to see that you are not removed from that location without your will.

8. Share Files up to 1.5gb in Size

This is like super cool, right? Chat and share those large files with ease. Definitely something to get excited about.

9. Works on Computers and Phones Seamlessly

Telegram is not just a phone app, it works on other devices like desktops, laptops, tablets and so on and your chat is easily accessed on any platform you choose.

10. Easily Switch Accounts

You can easily switch user accounts on Telegram on your Android phone. For now, you can switch in-between 3 user accounts all linked to different phone numbers. A nice feature to meet work and professional needs for example.

There are so many wonderful feature of Telegram that I might not be able to totally cover here but you can learn more here.

Now, many people already know about Telegram but have phones that struggle to maintain WhatsApp, not to mention another major chat app like Telegram.

No problems, I have a few tips that should help you achieve this objective in a short while.

Are You Chasing Away Your Customers?

Most businesses are opened with the objective of meeting customers' needs profitably. Every time a business fails to address a customer's need, it is not fulfilling the purpose for which it was created.
I have in the past written about poor customer service experiences and I am going to share one I had this morning. Sometimes, I get breakfast on the way to work and this morning was no different. I had gotten my food at Sabo, Yaba and wanted the new Lipton drink to accompany it. I have a serious issue with getting sleepy at work and it helps me remain alert.
So, there's this lady probably in her 60s selling cold drinks at the junction. I go there meet a few people waiting as the seller wasn't there, after about 30 seconds she showed up and I asked for Lipton Peach. Her response was in Yoruba: "ko si Lipton Peach, nibo leti ri?" (there is no Lipton Peach, where have you seen it sold?) Essentially, she was telling me I was stupid for asking for something that wasn't in the market in her opinion. I touched the lemon variant of Lipton she had, it felt dusty, wasn't cold.
I simply moved on to the Total Petrol station at Alagomeji close to my office. Got there and found the Lipton Peach that the roadside seller insisted wasn't in the market and insulted me for. I bought my drink and left.
Now, for me as an entrepreneur, business consultant and coach. There are several issues here.
The first is that the roadside seller exclusively with her attitude and words, chased away a possible repeat customer. Now, unless you really don't understand what business is, this is a fundamental flaw that might inhibit the growth and progress of her business. Is she making money? Yes. Is she running the business properly? No. I am sure I won't be the last customer she maltreats today. It adds up in the end.
Secondly, it is true that the peach variant of the new Lipton drink is harder to find than the lemon variant. Nonetheless, she shouldn't have made the comments she made. A simple, "I don't have Peach, please buy Lemon, it is also good" would have won me over despite it not being cold and being dusty, it is harmattan, I would have probably accepted it and rinsed the bottle before drinking it. After all, I no be ajebo (I think?).
Sometimes, people complain about their business failing but they don't know that they are the architects of their own failure. You might say that you have good customer service as a business owner, but, have you checked how your staff treat customers? Is it at par with or better than yours? Or, is it worse? Often, customers might not have contact with the polite and courteous business owner, they relate with the rude and impatient staff. Where the business owner is the rude one, we can begin to write the obituary of the business, no need for postmortem as well. Just accept that poor attitude and customer service killed the business in all likelihood.
You cannot afford to be arrogant with customers as an entrepreneur -- without them you don't have a business. I hope you find my story not too boring and will take time to review your customer service culture in your organisation. I am doing the same for our business.
Meanwhile, does this post resonate with you as an entrepreneur? My name is Abdulkabir Olatunji and I would like to invite you to our Telegram group for current and aspiring entrepreneurs. It is growing every day and we share tips, information and support each other. Please join us by clicking the link I look forward to meeting and interacting with you more.
Thank you.

Tips to Optimize Human Relations at Work

Today, there is no doubt that the success of any business comes through its employees and teamwork. The literature on the mobilization and development of human capital is exhaustive.

The nodal point behind all this is that any individual in a company, regardless of position, function or level of management, must maintain human relationships at work and that these relationships define his experience as well as his performance. professional. The success of any business depends on success in a team, and a team is a group of individuals in relation to each other.

So, how do we get the most out of our relationships at work? Here are some tips to follow! Zoetalentsolutions.

Role of managers in human relations at work?

Understand oneself, to better understand one's dynamics with the other

Every human being looks and analyzes the world and others with his own glasses, according to his perception of the world. The reality perceived by every individual is his own and there will always be a difference between his own, that of another, and reality. There are as many perceptions of the same reality as there are individuals!

In order to better understand one's relationships with others, it is essential to start with self-awareness, to understand how we influence our human relationships with others, our respective responsibilities in the dynamics of our human relationships.

The avenues are vast to get to know each other better, and it is sometimes the work of a lifetime. A good start would be to better understand one's own personality using a psychometric test to detect our natural behaviors, which will come to the surface in everyday situations at work.

Understand the other through active listening

In every human dynamic, there is the "self", but there is also the other and his perception of reality. Active listening is a good tool for understanding the other person as well as their perception of reality. Forget emails and spend quality time with your employees!\

Here are some tips for developing active listening:

1. Exclude one's own preconceptions and any attempt at personal interpretation.
2. To be available and let others express themselves without interrupting.
3. Ask open questions and encourage the other to clarify his thoughts.
4. Taming silences (we can never say enough!).
5. Be attentive to your own non-verbal language and that of the other.
6. Rephrase the words of the other with his own words.
7. Show empathy and kindness.

Manage conflicts optimally

Any manager wishing to improve human relations at work must be concerned about managing conflicts optimally. The literature on the subject is exhaustive!

That being said, at the root of all conflict is a relationship between two people, two perceptions of the same reality, and in order to understand the dynamics, it is important to understand the vision of each of the parties.

Active listening to both parties is an excellent starting point and there are also several ways to better understand the dynamics between two people. Assessing the level of professional complementarity is an excellent way to better understand the dynamics between two people.

Accept, respect and promote diversity

Understanding the other is essential, but then comes acceptance of the other in its diversity. The manager who is able to embrace, respect, and promote diversity will gain greater productivity and competitive advantage for their business.

Wanting to surround ourselves with people who are like us is a natural protective reflex, but opening up to the difference is a wonderful opportunity to learn, to grow and for the benefit of all.

Develop vulnerability and managerial courage

"Vulnerability has a taste for truth and the smell of courage."

Having the courage to be vulnerable as a manager, the courage to be yourself is the cornerstone of inspiring leadership . The time of the manager who knows everything, who has the answer to everything and nothing can shake and a thing of the past.

We are all inspired by genuine people, having the courage to admit their vulnerability, to ask for help, to tell the real things, to tackle problems head on, to build on the strengths of each and everyone, to mobilize others to get involved without fear of being wrong or making mistakes.

To have managerial courage is to say the real things, at the right time and to the right person and to get there, it is more often than not necessary to accept one's own vulnerability.

The following video from Brené Brown on the vulnerability should please you!
Instilling pleasure in human relations at work

Success comes from teamwork and there are few great successes without pleasure and enthusiasm. With that, make room for pleasure, cultivate it in your teams and you will reap the benefits exponentially.

Nobody wants to go beyond without being pleasant! Do you know people who excel at something that does not please them?

Role of the organization in human relations at work

Have a clear vision and share it
For individuals to work together to achieve common goals in business, they need to know where they are going. If vision is blurred, so will the effort.

Share your vision, but also make your employees an integral part of this vision, its development and its application.

If your employees are important, then listen to them!

Have values ​​that reflect the importance of human relationships at work
If you as an employer value teamwork, then make sure that is what is valued in performance evaluation . How many companies evaluate individual performance while forgetting team performance?

The pleasure is important? So, value it! Human relations at work and teamwork are important? So, promote team mobilization activities.  Are your employees important? Find ways to tell them that they are important and invest in their development!
Promoting human relations at work is important, but we must not forget that employees also have out-of-work relationships that are just as important to them.
The majority of your employees need to balance their professional and personal lives to balance work and family. Do not forget, cultivate flexibility and consider your actions.

3. Allow managers the flexibility to manage the needs of employees
If human relations are valued in the company, then it is essential to give managers the flexibility to manage the different needs of their employees.
Some companies have created procedures for all possible eventualities in the management of human relations at work. Nevertheless, we are all unique and our relationships with others are also unique. Your organization must therefore provide the necessary tools and training for managers while allowing them the freedom to manage this diversity and to exercise judgment ... a rule and a way of doing things can not apply to everyone.

In the end, there is a variety of tools and ways to make the most of human relationships at work! It is important to remember that every human relationship is imbued with our subjective perception of reality, but also with the subjective perception of the other. Basically, we are essentially people in relation to other people: it is therefore essential to know ourselves better to better understand how we influence our human relationships at work with others, to understand each other and to understand the dynamics that unite us to improve collaboration in a constructive way.
