Top 5 mistakes managers make in handling workplace conflict

~ By Claudette Rowley and Sushilaa Pathalam
Under the best of circumstances, managing conflict in the workplace can be a tricky proposition. Managers and employees alike are often reluctant to address a conflict due to fear of making it worse, discovering it can’t be resolved, or not knowing the best way to approach the resolution process.
Unresolved conflict has a high cost. A 2008 study from CPP found that U.S. employees   spent approximately 2.8 hours per week dealing with conflict equaling $359 billion in paid hours.  
In addition to the financial toll, unresolved conflict has key effects on productivity, decision making and employee retention.  Managers are often called to resolve disputes between employees, on teams or between departments. In today’s stressed work environment, it’s easy for managers (and employees) to make the following five mistakes.


ISW Celebrates Annual Picnic - July 22, 2012

By Sushilaa Pathalam

Rain or Shine, can’t stop ISW members from having fun.  The 2012 ISW summer picnic party started with quiet a few new members norming and ofcourse the veterans performing their duties and getting to have things taken care of.  The President, Sushilaa Pathalam (Chairperson for the picnic organization commitee) and the senior members of the ISW community provided the comfort level and sense of belonging to the new members.   ISW community is what the new people who move in the area seek and look for.  This gave a perfect start for the Summer party at Northboro, Ellsworth McAfee park.  Ofcourse mother nature was totally supportive of that by it being a perfect 80 degree day.

The definition of financial security changes as we age: The needs and wants of a newly married 30-year old are, not surprisingly, very different from those of a 70-year-old retiree. There is one thing that stays the same, however: planning and achieving your retirement goals is a lifetime process — one that requires you to first build assets and manage retirement risks for the future, and then to turn those assets into a stream of income in retirement that will last as long as you need it to.
To understand how these steps work throughout your life, consider the following:

Hasya Kavi Sammelan 2012

Hasya Kavi Sammelan at ISW 2012 – A hit with members and others !

 For a 6th year in a row ISW hosted the Hasya Kavi Sammelan (an International Hindi Association production). It was a fun filled evening of humor and laughter.
