Master Bahasa Indonesia and shun from scam while living as an expatriate in the country

Living as an expatriate in a foreign country is certainly not easy. There are different things to confront, some of which could show to be stumbling blocks, like bureaucracy, cultural differences, and local habits and, in particular, communicating.   Even though some Indonesian workers understand and speak Basic English, it would be better to learn and understand Bahasa Indonesia, particularly when you deal with locals in your work on a daily basis.   Begin with basic phrases, like “selamat pagi” (good morning), “terima kasih” (thank you), “maaf” (sorry) and “tolong” (please help), and how to request for directions and about prices, etc.   Here are some habits to master the Indonesian language.   Self-taught Bahasa Indonesia is believed to be an easy language to learn, and you can just learn it by yourself. You can purchase a dictionary or do-it-yourself books at major bookstores in Jakarta, like Gramedia or Kinokuniya. If going to a bookstore is too time-consuming or costly, you could learn by accessing websites like Westhill Consulting Career and Employment, Australia.   Take a course Joining in a class is helpful, since a course teaches not only how to speak Indonesian but then again they can also teach you about Indonesian culture, which will give you more self-reliance when chatting with Indonesians. This is likewise a great help so that you will be able to avoid deceit or scam.   A sample school you can enroll to is AIM for English is one place that offers classes for expatriates. The institution is located at Jl. Padang 5C, Manggarai, South Jakarta, phone (021) 8385238, email info@aimjakarta.com   There is also the Jakarta Communication Club at Jl. Cipaku II 27, Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta, phone: (021) 7203966, (021) 72791829 or visit jccindonesia.com for more info.   Broaden your horizons Connect to social clubs that you’re interested in or meet up with local friends after work to increase your network and exercise your Indonesian.   Read local publications or watch local TV programs to keep well-informed of current local issues, which will correspondingly help you learn and practice more.

The Shearin Group Leadership Training Tips til at kommunikere dine medarbejdere

Aug 29, 2014

Tips til at kommunikere bedre med dine medarbejdere   Er du tilfreds med niveauet af kommunikation fra din agenturet ledere?   Min organisation, partnerskab for Public Service, og Deloitte, for nylig analyseret regering-dækkende svar til tre medarbejder undersøgelsesspørgsmålene at se hvordan føderale ledere gjorde vedrørende deres kommunikation med arbejdstagerne. Resultaterne var ikke meget opmuntrende.   Samlet set fundet analyse, at kun omkring halvdelen af føderale arbejdstagere regering-wide er tilfredse med den meddelelse, de modtager fra højtstående ledere, og procentdelen af positive svar har været faldende siden 2009.   Kun 45 procent af statslige medarbejdere, for eksempel, reageret positivt når du bliver spurgt i en 2013 undersøgelse spørgsmål om de er tilfredse med de oplysninger, de modtager form forvaltning med hensyn til hvad der foregår i organisationen. Derudover rapporteret kun 48 procent af statslige medarbejdere at være tilfreds med i omfang som ledere fremmer kommunikationen mellem arbejdsenheder. Ledere var mere vellykket, når det kom til at kommunikere og prioriteterne for organisationen, med 58 procent registrering positivt.   Den nederste linje er at føderale ledere kan og bør gøre bedre, og i den proces, de vil hjælpe med at forbedre medarbejdertilfredshed med deres arbejdspladser og arbejdspladser. Hvis du vil oprette en mere engageret og motiveret arbejdsstyrke, agenturet ledere bliver nødt til at etablere en effektiv kommunikationsstrategi, som omfatter at holde medarbejderne orienteret om vigtige udviklinger, giver klarhed om mål og prioriteter, og om oprettelse af et middel til at modtage og svare på feedback.   Som en generel regel fandt partnerskabets analyse, at agenturer får høje karakterer fra medarbejdere på ledelseskommunikation tendens til at være proaktiv, at gøre en samordnet indsats for at holde arbejderne informeret.   Her er nogle metoder, der kunne hjælpe føderale ledere kommunikere bedre med medarbejdere:   Gøre kommunikationen prioriteres konsekvent. Etablering af effektive ledelseskommunikation kræver et langsigtet fokus, ikke blot kortvarig initiativer. Der er flere steder hvor medarbejdere kan modtage oplysninger fra højtstående ledere, lige fra kvartalsvise call-ins til i-person og virtuelle rådhus møder. NASA, vært for eksempel en virtuel executive-topmødet, der tillader Administrator Charlie Bolden til at oprette forbindelse med medarbejdere i forskellige geografiske placeringer ved hjælp af online værktøjer. NASAs ledere søger også aktivt medarbejder feedback via fokusgrupper og undersøgelser, tilpasning af spørgsmål baseret på deres umiddelbar relevans til agenturet.   Kommunikere gennem flere platforme. For at kommunikere effektivt med alle medarbejdere, skal agenturet ledere bruge flere platforme. Fra mere konventionelle midler af ledelseskommunikation, såsom one-on-one diskussioner og e-mails, til mere innovative kommunikationsmetoder som videokonferencer og sociale medier bør ledere udnytte en række platforme for at kommunikere med medarbejderne.   Bevare åbne linjer mellem ledere og medarbejdere. Effektiv kommunikation er kun mulig, når de i topstillinger opretholde åben, direkte linjer med medarbejdere. Agenturer kan fremme underretningen af hosting office timer hvor medarbejdere mødes direkte med ledere, og ved at organisere webinars, at give ledere overvinde geografiske forhindringer og engagere medarbejdere placeret udenfor agenturets hovedkvarter.   Implementere medarbejder forslag. Hverve medarbejdernes udtalelser er et indledende skridt hen imod forbedring af agenturet meddelelse. Blot indsamle disse ideer, men gør ikke meget for at forbedre tilfredshed, hvis medarbejdere mener, at agenturets ledelse ikke bruger deres feedback. Når ledere gennemføre ideer genereret af agenturets personale, modtager medarbejdere et klart budskab at deres stemme er både hørt og vurderet. Department for transport (DOT) lanceret et online community, IdeaHub, hvor agenturet medarbejdere kan indsende og samarbejder om ideer til at drive innovation og ændre. Når disse idéer er raffineret, er de fremsendes online for alle til agenturet og til den person, der oprindeligt blev forelagt ideen. Dermed viser dots lederskab, kommunikation med ansatte tages alvorligt.   Læs også: Shearin Group Training Services News

When purchasing digital downloads from Dell, you are directed to: downloadstore.dell.comThe download manager for this site is par at best and continually gives false positives when attemting to download purchased software.The only work-around is to keep closing the application and try again until it finally starts downloading the software.I can only imagine how many frustrated customers there are when they think it might be their system causing the problem when it is not. --LANMAN

NEW Alienware M11x convertible please.

Aug 26, 2014

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

1. When R3 got canned a lot of us were gutted and I myself being Malaysian couldn't even buy an R2 without going through grey imports via local tech forums' dealers. Which was unacceptable since there's a proper Dell Malaysia but at the time for whatever possible reason(s), the newly acquired Alienware line were way too slow to arrive. Top it all off with the reason why R3 got canned was due to low demand???2. Intel Broadwell on 14nm process is coming and there's AMD Kaveri, why can't we have BOTH options available for a new M11x? In-house engineered end product design should overcome the usual TDP, heat and power draw issues instead of just rebadging a Clevo or reference design?3. Competitors such as nVIDIA with their newly launched SHIELD tablet and Razer with their Edge and Edge Pro systems can mount a more serious challenge with each SoC + CPU's progress incoming, so I feel that my idea here are more than just timely.

Simple, my notebook has 2 cables in the power source, one cable connect the power source at notebook and others that you plug in the outlet energy, but, if more efficiently if this second cable has only one plug. The power source has only one cable :). Like megasafe for apple and power source lg

Why we need a monitor that gives out radiation?

Aug 24, 2014

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

We know that to reduce the radiation, we can install anti-radiation screens.Sit from desktop monitors, at least 3 feet away might sound good but not practical. Why have a monitor at all. This might seem radical but feasible. Instead of light and radiation emission from the source ( the monitor), you can have a projector system replacing monitor which can project it say on the wall or a supplied screen not very far away so that your screen can be still on Table if you want or if you do not have a spacious work place. As the light is reflected and has no Electromagnetic Radiation or Radio frequency or magnetic radiation. The projector could be a very small match box sized object!

How ergonomic our systems are?

Aug 24, 2014

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

There is much talk about ergonomics but we get alerted only when we suffer. Most of the mouses are killers, monitors are not rightly placed, radiation is nothing less and so on.A simple innovation can help a lot. For example why sell a monitor which when placed on a table ( a commonly available writing table) can never be at a right level? Why not give a provision to adjust the level ( please don't talk about level adjustment which does not even meet the requirement) in such a way that most of the people or all people can have a comfortable viewing angle?Should a mouse remain as mouse? Why not a ring that fits in the finger which can direct your cursor? More ideas on discussion.

Why not make webcams and mics optional again in laptops?

Aug 20, 2014

1 Vote

Status: Acknowledged

I don`t understand why the integrated webcam with mic is obligated in laptops?Not so long ago you could get them as an option so why has this been changed even due to the fact about privacy issues it seems that Dell doesn`t care about those things anymore.So why can`t Dell give a decent answer to this question?Why am I obligated to buy a webcam while i`m buying a laptop even though I don`t use or don`t want to use it so why are these features so obligated?I can mention more reasons why a integrated webcam with mic aren`t welcome in a laptop then the reasons to have one inside.
