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.

Is it Business as Usual for Facebook?

As social media sites go, Facebook is no spring chicken. Founded way back in 2004, the site is now entering its teens. It’s still the most popular social media site with  2.38 billion monthlyactive users.

Facebook Has Had Growing Pains

It hasn’t all been plain sailing. Several scandals have rocked the site over the last few years. That there are serious privacy concerns is clear. Mark Zuckerberg, at the helm of the company, admits that.

In his defence, though, he also states that no one could have foreseen such complications when the site was first envisaged. That it has exceeded the founder’s wildest expectations is clear.

There’s also been infighting between the co-founders, Mark Zuckerberg and Chris Hughes. Hughes recently called for the company to be broken up. He feels that Zuckerberg currently exerts too much control.

He believes that the company has strayed far from the intent with which it was created and focuses too much on earnings. Other critics paint an even bleaker picture. Some believe that Facebook is stifling the industry, and that it buys its competitors out rather than innovating.

Overall, critics believe that Facebook is creating something of a monopoly in the social media sphere. It’s difficult for competitors to compete with them directly as a result.

Are Changes on the Horizon?

Change is inevitable. Whether it’s going to be possible to unbundle the company or not is something that is open to debate. Where would you even start?

The fact that the company is such a dominant field in the area could be a way for the federal government to intervene. It could arguably file a suit forcing the company to break off into smaller divisions. It’s not something that is done often, but it might become necessary.

Facebook, it seems, is not interested in splitting up. The company has argued that better internet regulation is a far better way forward.

What is clear, though, is that Facebook does have to take a firmer stance when it comes to privacy issues. The company has weathered the fallout from the privacy scandals over the last years, but the public is becoming a lot less forgiving of them.

Is the Site Still Relevant?

The site does have something of an image of being a golden oldie. The younger generations are moving to more visual sites like Instagram. They tend to see Facebook more as a site for their parents and grandparents.

So whether it’s any good for your business or not will depend on who your target market is. Instagram has become extremely popular with marketers, and is a site that has shown exceptional growth over the last few years.

Many businesses are opting to run pages on both platforms. And, perhaps that’s a good way to go here. After all, both sites are popular, and both are very different. Facebook might not be as hip and happening as Instagram, but it still has a lot of value to offer.

Final Notes

Will Facebook charge on into the future? If Zuckerberg and his team have anything to say about it, most definitely. Facebook is not likely to be its generation’s My Space.

What will be interesting to see, though, is what form it will evolve into. Privacy concerns mean that it can’t simply carry on as it has been. What effect the changes will take remains to be seen.

    Apres Announces the Launch of its Platform to Create AI Training Data Using AI

    Apres is a startup using AI to create training data for businesses

    Apres recently announced the launch of its new platform to train AI models using deep learning. Apres creates AI training tools that learn from labeled data to help companies radically reduce the cost of creating and maintaining AI applications. The Apres platform offers both self-serve and managed labeling solutions -- giving companies a convenient way to scale labeling on their terms.

    Apres Dashboard

    With Apres, companies can leverage the labeled data they already have -- created on or off the platform -- into high performance AI training automations. These automations can be integrated into a model to enrich low confidence results, through custom API endpoints, or used to create labeled data on-demand. Users can improve their automations with pretrained datasets on common machine learning themes in technology, business, finance, marketing, and health, all within Apres’ own solutions library. The library is accessible within the platform and custom API endpoints.

    By adding active learning to the labeling process, Apres helps companies more intelligently create training data and collect insights. Apres then produces training reports with each batch to help companies optimize their training process, giving them deeper control of model quality.

    Apres Co-founder/CEO Matt Waite

    “We want to make it easier for developers and companies to build and maintain artificial intelligence applications. With both deep learning technology and infrastructure becoming more accessible, training and support become the core bottlenecks. By shifting from human to mechanical support we hope to make developing intelligence more accessible and economical for everyone,” said Matt Waite, Co-founder and CEO.

    In recent years AI has skyrocketed in popularity. There was over $2 billion invested by companies in 2018 alone, and that number is expected to reach $32 billion by 2025. For most companies, AI has become an important competitive advantage and considered the “next big technology shift”.  With around 80% of a company's time developing machine learning models related to data management, Apres is in the perfect position to facilitate the rise of AI, and help companies scale their applications.

    “We want to provide tools that help companies stay ahead in their industry. Thanks to our unique approach, we hope that Apres will become a market leader in a world where data intelligence is more popular and in demand than ever before. Our ultimate goal is to help companies incorporate more people in the training process to help the company scale it’s workforce’s intelligence,” said Waite.

    Apres is an AI training platform, on a mission to automate AI training by using a combination of human and machine labeling. The platform learns from your data to seamlessly scale the training process, delivering high-quality results more efficiently than ever before. This includes tools for both textual and object detection use cases, with a library of pretrained models to kick off learning and detailed reports to improve training outcomes.

    How to Book Your Place as a Driver on InDriver in Nigeria and Get Approved in 3 Hours

    There is a new e-hailing/mobile taxi app taking the world and Africa by storm, it is called InDriver. I am going to teach you how to book your place quickly as a driver in Nigeria before the process becomes cumbersome.

    You need to pay attention properly please.

    STEP 1: Download the InDriver app from Playstore or Appstore for Apple

    Passengers and drivers will be using the same app. No need to be asking for driver's app. Nothing like that. Just one app.

    STEP 2: Register as a passenger

    This step is required of everybody including drivers. You will need to submit your active phone number. You will get a confirmation code. Enter it in the app and get confirmed.

    At this stage, you should send a text with your name and phone number to 08085404500 saying you have been confirmed on the app.

    This step is very important. This will allow me log you into the database manually for drivers. Don't proceed to driver registration on the app without it.

    I will confirm that I have manually logged you in the database ASAP.

    STEP THREE: Click on driver's online registration
    Here you would be asked for all the relevant documents from InDriver.

    For Nigeria (Lagos For Now)

    You Should Have all of These
    ✓Car model must be 2000 or newer
    ✓Car must have Lagos vehicle license
    ✓Driving with Uber or Bolt(Taxify) with an active profile OR Has a PCC specimen documents ( Police Character certificate).

    Photo information required

    1. Photo of the vehicle from the front
    2. Photo of Lagos vehicle license
    3. Photo of driver's licence (front side)
    4. Photo of you holding your driver's licence.
    5. Screenshot of Uber or taxify profile OR Photo of police character certificate.

    STEP 4: Upload your documents

    Some of the documents require taking a picture, some require uploading from your phone's memory card or internal memory. Upload them all, if you don't your application will not be approved.

    STEP 5: Input Referral Code for Quick Approval

    This code will help you get approved quickly because it links you to a person not just a computer program. Input this code: 10351

    Click on submit.

    Wait for about an hour before trying to go online. Once you are able to go online, you have been approved. If not, just be patient.


    The price you see from the passenger is what you will get paid regardless of traffic or distance. Therefore, only accept trips whose price you like.

    Alternatively, you can respond to the passenger by bidding higher, this means you want a higher price to take the trip. But mind you, if another driver accepts the passengers fare, the system will automatically select that driver. Drivers close to the passenger's location would have the same information as you.

    I am an official recruiter for InDriver and I work across borders but I have a special interest for my fellow Nigerians.

    Let's do this guys.

    For other Africans in these countries, South Africa, Kenya, Ghana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Uganda, you can contact me as well.

    Any questions, contact me on 08085404500 especially via WhatsApp.
