Qualities As A Female Leader

Being a successful women in this era is a very difficult but hardworking and luck will make it easy to chase it faster. Luck is less about good things randomly happening to people who happened to be in the right place at the right time than it is about perseverance, dedication and the ability to show up at 100 wrong places before you get that “lucky” break.
So what are the essential characteristics of women leaders? I had google enough to came up with below skills:

1. Perseverance

As a leader, you are going to come across challenges, and sometimes things won’t go according to plan. Sabina Gault, founder of Konnect PR, understands that it’s how you push through those challenges that make you a leader. “Women leaders need persistence, perseverance and the ability to not take “no” for an answer,” says Gault.
This attitude, in turn, can inspire others in your organization to step up. “If you leave the office at 4 p.m. and expect your team to stay there till 9 p.m. — you’re kidding yourself,” says Gault. “However if you are first in, last out, always hard-working and always pushing for more, your team will do the same and you will earn their respect as a leader.”

2. A Nurturing Spirit

“In the past women have been condemned for being ‘soft’ or being ‘nurturers'”, saysDawniel Winningham, a performance coach, motivational speaker and best-selling author who works with emerging women leaders across the country. “I think our nurturing spirit is often confused with being lackadaisical or an inability to hold people accountable which is not the case. I think being a nurturer, having a sense of being fair and just, and use of our women’s intuition are some of our strongest traits.”

3. Confidence

For Mallary Tytel, President of Healthy Workplaces, one of the defining characteristics of leadership is confidence — having an “unconditional belief in your own abilities.” Having confidence isn’t about bragging or being a show-off, but about not undermining your abilities and creating a culture that values your input.

Mallary believes women can learn to cultivate confidence in their own abilities by actively seeking out and responding to feedback, “tooting your own horn,” taking on tough assignments and excelling at them, maintaining successful relationships and developing expertise that sets you apart.

4. Giving Back

Lori Freemire is a marketing entrepreneur who actively supports several charities, including the Leukemia Lymphoma Society, SME, Hispanic foundations, library and college foundations. She believes it’s important for female leaders to look for ways to give back to their community.

“Be generous and help others without looking to be reciprocated,” says Freemire. “Be trustworthy and trusting; always be willing to learn about yourself and others; look for ways to work with people, not against them. And above all, listen and over-communicate.”

5. Education

Throughout human history, it’s never been easier for women in Western society to obtain education. Colleges offer undergraduate and postgraduate programs in a variety of subjects, and basic skills such as public speaking, networking, computer literacy and business writing can be learned through professional development courses and community programs. Scholarships and career advancement programs aimed at women help to ensure future women leaders have the opportunity to obtain an education.

But education encompasses more than just a college degree. Female leaders should seek out those more experienced in their field, and learn from them. Mentors and coaches can help a future leader push ahead, learn what works, and avoid potential pitfalls. As Winningham points out, having a coach or mentor also helps women to make connections they would not normally be able to make.

Winningham says that having a mentor or coach is vital to her success, and wishes she’d embraced the use of a coach much sooner. “Had I had the benefit of a private coach much sooner, I would have reached the finish line even faster. A coach has a vested interest in getting you to the finish line sooner rather than later, with a structured approach to not only helping you learn, but holding you accountable for the application of those lessons.”

6. Balance and Understanding Your Own Needs

When asked what she would tell her younger-self if she could go back in time, Shannon Sennefelder — owner of the Foundational Leadership Institute — said she would tell herself to take better care of her health. “That’s a huge one. Had I really understood the value of self care earlier, I would have done things a lot differently.”

One of the things many don’t, but good leaders understand is how important it is to achieve balance in their lives and take care of themselves. Sennefelder says, “Women in general have a belief that self care is selfish! Nope! It is like breathing — vital to our survival.”

7. Vision

A good leader needs to not only be an expert in their industry, but to see the bigger picture, and understand their role in the wider world. They need to believe that change is possible and worthwhile, and be able to convey that message to others in a way that has meaning. This quality is best summed up by one word — vision. A leader with vision is a leader who can see the path ahead and inspires others to help them turn a dream into a reality.

Patti Johnson is the founder and CEO of PeopleResults, a human resource consulting firm. She agrees that the most important element of a leader is having a vision of the future. “I think the best qualities in (women) leaders are that they inspire trust, they can paint a picture of the future and they can lead others through change,” says Johnson.

“We can create these qualities in women by getting them into the right jobs, giving them access to mentors and coaches who can accelerate their progress and encourage them to take ownership for their own career. No one can do it for you.”
The qualities that make a good leader don’t vary between men and women. After all, it’s the person, not the gender that determines a leader. And although women are only just catching up to men in terms of leadership roles, their unique experiences and supportive natures make them more than capable of leading the future.

Why TB patient has life ban in Dubai

What is tuberculosis?

Tuberculosis is a bacterial disease usually affecting the lungs (pulmonary TB). Other parts of the body can also be affected, for example lymph nodes, kidneys, bones, joints, etc. (extrapulmonary TB).

tb category

Who gets tuberculosis?

Tuberculosis can affect anyone of any age. People with weakened immune systems are at increased risk.

How is tuberculosis spread?

Tuberculosis is spread through the air when a person with untreated pulmonary TB coughs or sneezes. Prolonged exposure to a person with untreated TB usually is necessary for infection to occur.

What is the difference between latent tuberculosis infection and tuberculosis disease?

Latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) means the person has the TB germ in their body (usually lungs), but has yet to develop obvious symptoms. In latent TB, the person has a significant reaction to the Mantoux skin test with no symptoms of tuberculosis, and no TB organisms found in the sputum. Tuberculosis disease indicates the person has symptoms, a significant reaction to a Mantoux skin test and organisms found in the sputum. In order to spread the TB germs, a person must have TB disease. Having latent TB infection is not enough to spread the germ. Tuberculosis may last for a lifetime as an infection, never developing into disease.

What are the symptoms of tuberculosis?

The symptoms of TB include a low-grade fever, night sweats, fatigue, weight loss and a persistent cough. Some people may not have obvious symptoms.
How soon do symptoms appear?

Most people infected with the germ that causes TB never develop active TB. If active TB does develop, it can occur two to three months after infection or years later. The risk of active disease lessens as time passes.

When and for how long is a person able to spread tuberculosis?
A person with TB disease may remain contagious until he/she has been on appropriate treatment for several weeks. However, a person with latent TB infection, but not disease, cannot spread the infection to others, since there are no TB germs in the sputum.

What is the treatment for tuberculosis?

People with latent TB infection should be evaluated for a course of preventive therapy, which usually includes taking anti-tuberculosis medication for several months. People with active TB disease must complete a course of treatment for six months or more. Initial treatment includes at least four anti-TB drugs, and medications may be altered based on laboratory test results. The exact medication plan must be determined by a physician. Directly observed therapy (DOT) programs are recommended for all TB patients to help them complete their therapy.

What can be the effect of not being treated for tuberculosis?

In addition to spreading the disease to others, an untreated person may become severely ill or die.

What can be done to prevent the spread of tuberculosis?

The most important way to stop the spread of tuberculosis is for TB patients to cover the mouth and nose when coughing, and to take all the TB medicine exactly as prescribed by the physician.

What is multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB)?

This refers to the ability of some strains of TB to grow and multiply even in the presence of certain drugs which would normally kill them.
What is extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB)?

Extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB) is a subset of MDR-TB in which the strains of TB bacteria are resistant to several of the best second-line drugs for TB. These strains are very difficult to treat. XDR-TB cases make up approximately 10 percent of MDR-TB cases.

Who gets MDR-TB?

TB patients with drug sensitive disease may develop drug resistant tuberculosis if they fail to take anti-tuberculosis medications as prescribed, as well as TB patients who have been prescribed an ineffective treatment plan. TB cases diseased with MDR-TB can transmit the drug resistant infection to other individuals.

What is the treatment for multidrug-resistant tuberculosis?

For patients with disease due to drug resistant organisms, expert consultation from a specialist in treating drug resistant TB should be obtained. Patienhts with drug resistant disease should be treated with drugs to which their organisms are susceptible. The effectiveness of treatment for latent infection with MDR-TB is uncertain.

What can be done to prevent the spread of MDR-TB?

Ensuring people with MDR-TB take all their medication and teaching patients to cover their mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing can reduce the risk of spread of MDR-TB. In addition, directly observed therapy should be used to ensure patients complete the recommended course of therapy.

10 Workplace Rights Every Dubai Employee Should Know

Do you know what all rights you have at work? You might accept that you can rely on your employer to monitor the law in every condition, but in fact, many employers violate labor laws, often simply through unawareness. It pays to know what your rights are.
Here are Ten of the most important workplace rights you might not appreciate you have.

employment

1. Salary deduction: Employer cannot subtract a single penny from your salary in the name of offset an inadvertent error, cash shortage, or breakage (in other words, a loss caused by a simple mistake or accident). Your employer can’t deny your paycheck for deprived performance. No matter how poorly you perform, your employer can’t manipulate your salary. Make a mistake that prices the business thousands of dollars? Breakdown an important piece of equipment? These are the expenses of doing business for your employer, and it can’t come out of an employee’s paycheck. Of course, you might lose your job, but you still must be salaried for all the hours you worked.

2. Receiving Paycheck Promptly: You must receive your paycheck prompt after a pay period ends. The employer may even be required to pay you additional money on top of your wages as a penalty if your paycheck is late.If you are fired, your employer must pay all wages due to you immediately upon termination. If you quit, and gave your employer 72 hours of notice, you are entitled on your last day to all wages due. If you quit with less than 72 hours of notice, your wages are due within 72 hours after you notified your employer that you will be quitting. If your employer willfully refuses to pay you within these time limits, it may have to pay you a penalty for each day that your wages are late, for up to 30 days.

3. Overtime Pay: Whether you’re eligible for overtime pay isn’t up to your employer; the government decides. As per the UAE Labor Law, where the work circumstances require a worker to work more than the normal number of hours, any period worked in excess shall be treated as overtime, for which the worker shall receive the wage stipulated for his normal working hours, plus a supplement of at least 25 percent of that wage. Where the work circumstances require a worker to work overtime between 9 pm and 4am, he shall be entitled in respect of such overtime to the wage stipulated for his normal working hours, plus a supplement of at least 50 percent of that wage.
The number of hours of actual overtime shall not exceed two a day, unless such work is essential for preventing a substantial loss or a serious accident, or eliminating or alleviating the impact of the latter. Overtime may be calculated on the basis of the total wage and not the basic wage. In the labor law ‘Wage’ and ‘Basic wage’ have different definitions. ‘Wage’ includes basic pay plus all the allowances and ‘Basic wage’ excludes any allowances.

4. Working Off the Clock: Your employer cannot ask, require, or even allow you to work off the clock. If you’re a non-exempt employee, you must be paid for all time worked. You can’t waive this right. Moreover, your employer cannot give you comp time in lieu of overtime pay.

5. Unsafe work.
The Labor Law allows you to refuse to perform unsafe work as long as it is hazardous enough that any reasonable person would think his/her health or safety would be in danger by doing the work. Before you refuse to perform unsafe work, however, make sure you inform your supervisor about the unsafe condition, and give the company a chance to correct it. If the company does not correct the unsafe condition, and you decide to refuse the work, make sure that you inform your supervisor, preferably in writing or in front of others, exactly why you are refusing to do the work, and that you will return to work as soon as the condition is fixed.

6. Discussing Your Salary: Your employer can’t stop you from discussing your salary with your co-workers. The employers can’t prevent employees from discussing wages among themselves. Many employers have policies against this anyway, but these policies violate the law.

7. Working Condition: Similarly, your employer can’t stop you from discussing your working conditions with your co-workers. The reason for the law is that employees wouldn’t be able to organize if they were forbidden from talking with each other about such important issues.

8. Promises: Promises made in your employee handbook are often binding. Circumstances vary, but in many cases, courts have ruled that promises made in employee handbooks are legally binding. In particular, pay attention to whether your company writes that it “will” or “shall” take particular actions; those statements are more likely to be more binding than statements that your employer “may” or “can” do something.

9. Identify between contractor and employee: Your employer can’t pay you as a contractor while treating you like an employee. If your employer controls when, where, and how you work, the government says you’re an employee—and your company needs to pay your payroll taxes and offer you the same benefits it offers to regular employees. Your designation as an “employee” or as an “independent. Contractor” is determined by how you do your work, not by your job title. If you are an employee, you are eligible for unemployment insurance, workers’ compensation,

10. Unemployment Insurance: You may be eligible for unemployment insurance if you are fired or quit your job for “good cause.” The following circumstances are considered to be “good cause” to quit a job:
 Domestic reasons (leaving your job in order to maintain a marriage or family situation);
 You are offered a better job (if you are offered another job with better wages, benefits and potential, and then the job falls through);
 Health reasons (before quitting, you must inform your employer of the health problem and ask for a leave of absence or a less demanding job);
 Intolerable working conditions (such as safety, harassment, significant demotions or pay cuts).

–Being fired from a job does not disqualify you from receiving unemployment insurance unless you are terminated for “misconduct;” showing serious or intentional disregard for your employer’s interests. Repeated tardiness or unexcused absences from work may qualify as misconduct; “poor performance” is not misconduct and should not disqualify you from unemployment benefits.

To avoid being disqualified for unemployment insurance if you quit the job, you must also make all reasonable attempts to notify your employer and attempt to solve the problem before you quit.
