Explain, understand and implement

How easy is it for you to train others? We have tips on how to explain and how to implement them.
Do you know everything? Each of us has strengths and weaknesses, knowledge and skills in certain areas. No one can know and be able to do everything. This is true in the private sphere as well as at work. But often there are difficulties when you want to communicate your own knowledge to others. What is the reason for this? Imagine you start as a trainee or career changer in the office and have just a basic knowledge of office software. The colleague responsible for your induction is supposed to assign you your first task. "So watch out" (he clicks through various    . . . > > >

Form of address in the letter of application

In some job advertisements you read "We are looking for you! Can one assume that one may then also address the boss as "Du"? In the language of many countries, no distinction is made between "Du" and "Sie" in the form of address. In Germany, we not only make this distinction orally and in writing, but we also distinguish between upper and lower case in salutations. If we write a personal message, we use the pronoun "Du". The pronoun and all variations (dich, dein, euer.....) are usually written in lower case, but can also be written in upper case.   . . . > > >

How important is feedback on the job?

Feedback is important for both sides. You can practise how to give feedback properly.
A feedback is a feedback or also a feedback information. In the course of the last few years, the perception and implementation of feedback is becoming more and more important. If you think of feedback exclusively as verbal expressions such as praise and reprimand, you are mistaken. You can also react to certain things with your body language and thus give (unconscious) feedback. We are always happy to receive feedback from our clients. [Read for yourself]( what feedback we receive from our clients. However, let's stay with the   . . . > > >

Rhetoric can be learned - your advantage in the job interview

Which language options can you use in a job interview and how should you argue? Convincing others can be learned!
The art of convincing or motivating other people with words is versatile, sometimes difficult, but definitely learnable. Rhetoric can be art, it lives from your creativity and it must have a system. Already in ancient Greece, a speech that was supposed to convince was structured according to a certain scheme.   . . . > > >

Possible interpretations of the cover letter

"The recipient determines the message!" - this also applies to a limited extent to your speculative application. Find out why in the IPSER blog.
The unsolicited application is on its way to the employer and as soon as you send it, you start thinking about what you might have done wrong. The personnel manager has the documents in his hands in black and white and we no longer have the opportunity to correct any misunderstandings. There are statements, phrases and sentences that offer a certain amount of room for interpretation, we will show you a few examples.   . . . > > >

Interpretation of job offers - which employees are wanted?

You should be attentive when reading job offers - there is room for interpretation here with some formulations. You should pay attention to this!
"The devil is in the detail" - this insight applies to many a job advertisement. Because some things that you only take note of superficially may have a different meaning than you first perceive. We have the know-how and know what employers want - [feel free to apply on your own initiative with our support.]( Qualifications in a job advertisement Let's start with the qualifications that are specified in the job offer.

The employer's reference: What does it really say?

Employees have the right to a qualified reference. What sounds good in the wording does not necessarily have to be really good. Get informed!
A distinction is made between a simple and a qualified reference. The simple reference only contains the key data of the employee, the qualified reference contains a verbal assessment. Every employee can insist on a qualified reference. Employers are required to formulate the references for their departing employees "favourably" so that a bad reference does not hinder the employee's career. The reference must   . . . > > >

Tips to convince others

It is possible to learn how to persuade others
When we talk about "convincing", we do not mean persuading someone to do something, even though many think that this is the same thing. If someone is persuaded, sooner or later they will (reluctantly) give up their opinion, but they will probably not be convinced of the matter. That is why we would like to convince you how much [success you will have with your unsolicited application](!

What do bosses expect from their employees?

Mutual expectations must be clearly formulated - this applies to the management level as well as to all other employees.

Conflict resolution in the workplace

Conflicts and discrepancies in the workplace can usually be solved through mutual understanding and proper communication
"There are no problems - there are only solutions" is a popular phrase when there are difficulties. Sure - that is one approach to sorting out problems. If you don't ask others, but look for a way out yourself, this is often even much more effective than a predetermined solution.

Motivation of employees

What are the possibilities for motivation?
When you hear "motivating employees", the first association is that this is a matter for the boss. That's only partly true, because most of the drive to do our work gladly and reliably comes from everyone themselves - but we'll get to that later.   . . . > > >

Employee wishes

No emotions at work?

Communication and emotions on the job
Anyone who shows emotions is vulnerable. That's what many people think and lock away emotions at work. Others would prefer to be friends with the whole company, tell the boss their private problems and are personally highly offended when their work is criticised. Which is the right way?
