LA Annual Dinner 2018

Language Academy Annual Dinner – 27 December 2018 with Multiethnic Theme.  Alhamdulillah, everyone looked great and had a good time. The objectives are not only to gather and have fun, but more to appreciate LA staff for their hard work, to celebrate staff who are retired, and the most important is to bridge the gap between senior and junior academic staff, last but not least to strengthen the cooperation between academic and support staff. In other words, to rapatkan saf. We did it, yeay and I would like to express my deepest appreciation to the Task Force team and all involved for the briliiant job.

TALKING STRAIGHT

How to be direct and handle people who are not?  Hmmmm… a question to ponder.

7 prevention tactics to save you from unnecessary heat up arguments

  1. listen with positive expectations, not judgment
  2. ask for information in a nonthreatening manner
  3. when in doubt, leave it out
  4. cool off before you open your mouth
  5. talk ‘now’ not ‘always’
  6. treat the undesired behaviour as an exception, not the rule
  7. take emotions out of technology

Before you react, stop and think:

Underneath poor behaviour is a frustrated commitment trying to get out
