 Facebook is piloting new tools that give people in India more control over who can download and share
their profile pictures. In addition, they are exploring ways people can more easily add designs to profile
pictures, which researches have shown helpful in deterring misuse.

 Profile pictures are an important part of building community on Facebook because they help people find
friends and create meaningful connections.

 In a research with people and safety organizations in India, Facebook heard that some women choose not
to share profile pictures that include their faces anywhere on the internet because they’re concerned
about what may happen to their photos.

 These tools, developed in partnership with Indian safety organizations like Centre for Social Research,
Learning Links Foundation, Breakthrough and Youth Ki Awaaz, are designed to give people more control
over their experience and help keep them safe online.

25 we school -Welingkar Education

New Controls:

 People in India will start seeing a step-by-step guide to add an optional profile picture guard. When
you add this guard:

 Other people will no longer be able to download, share or send your profile picture in a message on

 People you’re not friends with on Facebook won’t be able to tag anyone, including themselves, in
your profile picture

 Where possible, we’ll prevent others from taking a screenshot of your profile picture on Facebook,
which is currently available only on Android devices

 We’ll display a blue border and shield around your profile picture as a visual cue of protection

The best leaders organize, plan, and execute with talent and skill, and they also embody these four secrets
of remarkably effective leaders.

 Empower

The act of voluntarily giving power away to your employees may seem counterintuitive, especially for more
traditional leaders accustomed to operating in rigid power structures. However, empowering your
employees to possess their own sway and say in the organization inspires them to do a better a job--as well
as a chance to grow and succeed in their jobs.

 Support

Giving constructive and productive support is actually not as easy as many of us think. In order to properly
offer support to your team, you need to be sure that you clearly communicate your goals and give feedback
along the way for improvement.

27 we school -Welingkar Education

If you're not accessible as a leader, often, the work comes out differently from what you expected--resulting
in disappointment and discouragement on both sides. Employees are most engaged and happy in supportive
environments where their boss considers their work to be valuable, appreciated, and necessary to the team.

 Energize

Very often, teams will fall into ruts where they no longer have the motivation or energy to work as efficiently
as they used to. Leaders communicate thoughtfully, with the knowledge that their words have the power to
inspire change from the heart of others on the team. If you present an authentic, compelling vision of the
future, people will be sure to want to help contribute to making it a reality.

 Communicate

One of the greatest downfalls of poor leadership is an inability to communicate effectively with others in the
organization. Contrary to popular belief, communicating is more than simply speaking--it's listening actively,
being able to clarify objectives, and considering the audience's intentions in your responses when you offer
them. Giving thoughtful, intentional messages aids in inspiring your team members to follow suit with their
own work.

What are the benefits of meditation for busy, career-driven people?

Answer by Yuhna Kim, Founder & CEO of Simple Habit, on Quora:

A common issue for busy, career-driven people (myself included) is stress, because we tend to put a lot of
pressure on ourselves. A moderate amount of stress is good, but too much can cloud our focus, judgment,
and interactions with others. Here are the key benefits I've noticed from meditation:

 Reducing stress: Meditation helps clears the mind and slow down the nervous system so that you can
think better on your feet, problem-solve more creatively, and focus better.

31 we school -Welingkar Education

 Improving relationships: Meditation teaches you to respond, not react. As a leader or team member,
emotional intelligence is key to approaching each situation with even-headedness and compassion,
rather than an emotional reaction that you might regret afterwards.

 Sleeping better: Sleep is crucial for career-driven people, but they often don't get enough of it.
Meditating even briefly before bed can help calm the mind so you can fall asleep quicker and feel more

Do you have a job interview coming up? The best way to get ready for an interview is to take the time to
review the most common traits you will most likely be evaluated.

Here are five tips for walking into the unknown and facing your interview:

1. Do your research
• Find out company information you are interviewing for and use information smartly and at right
• Do not walk for interview without enough knowledge about company and job. It helps you judge if
the company matches your expectations and values

2. Practice for the interview

• Make a list of the most common interview questions for fresh candidates and practice the
appropriate answers you will respond with. You do not have to memorize the responses
• Know your strengths and weaknesses
• Get your friends or a family member to ask you questions. A mock interview session helps you
assess your body language as well

• Put on best formal attire
• Be punctual and reach interview 15minutes before. Stay Calm and Composed
• Enter room with smile and confidence and ensure you greet people
• Be a good listener

4. Body language

• Below are few don’ts for interview
• Avoid playing with your hair
• Don’t bend and sit
• Do not fold hands
• Avoid being less attentive

5. Honesty is the best policy

• Be honest as you will be judged as Most of the times, your body language conveys it
• If you do not know something, accept it

Before you leave the room, thank the interviewer. Acknowledge them for giving you their time. Facing an interview is
about confidence and managing the situation. Be yourself and face it with a smile.

How you think about time and how you organize it in your mind is key.
Here are some ways to think about time and getting more done.

1) Take two minutes to imagine your productive day: Before you get out of bed, or while you are starting
your morning routine, make an appointment with your mind. Spend two minutes imagining your peaceful,
productive day. Imagine yourself responding to emergencies with ease and grace, working diligently and in a
focused way on your projects, handling all of your email and incoming messages.

2) Create a theme and a personal promise: Maybe you're working on a lot of projects and they all need your
attention. You can create a theme for your day that will remind you how will approach these tasks, not how
to do them. Take out a sticky note (I like the bright pink ones) and write this:
"Today my theme is __________", and fill in the blank with how you will approach today. Maybe your theme
is "positivity" or "peace" or "grace" or "fast" or "focused". Stick it somewhere where you can refer to it
throughout the day.

41 we school -Welingkar Education

3) Make appointments with yourself: To respect yourself and your time, make appointments with yourself
on your calendar. Sometimes your appointment with yourself will simply be one hour to tackle some tasks.
That's okay, as long as you respect yourself as much as you would respect anyone else with an
appointment. Don't be tempted to cancel on yourself because of someone else's emergency.

4) Schedule your week by types of tasks: First, determine the types of tasks you do regularly. Schedule
regular blocks of time to do these types of tasks. Put these time blocks on your calendar and stick to them
for maximum productivity.

5) Or schedule your week by types of time: There are four types of time: Focus, Flexible, Family and Free
Time. Family time is obvious. Make time for family to maintain balance and happiness in your life. Free time
means free from what you have to do and do what you want to do.

6) Train your brain to get to work during focus time: Develop a ritual that trains your brain to go into focus
time. Music works well. Use a headset and choose music that has no words, only calming tones. Start the
music right before you want to focus. Do it every time and pretty soon you will anchor yourself to focus
each time the music plays.

Getting everyone doing his or her personal best isn't always as easy as it seems.

Sometimes, problems like miscommunication and internal competition greatly affect the way people want
to or are able to work with each other.

1. Set the standard: Leading by example is the easiest way to show others on a team the kind of behavior
you expect from them. Be on time, be responsible, meet your deadlines, and work cooperatively. It'll show
everyone else they don't have room to slack off.

2. Emphasize that mistakes aren't the end of the world: Mistakes happen. In fact, they happen quite
often. As a leader, it's your duty to delineate the difference between a careless one-time goof, and a
recurring habit or error that hinders the team's ability to reach its true potential.

3. Reward where it's due: When people do make good decisions, however, it's important that they feel as
if they're doing the right thing as well. Openly praising others' efficient actions--without fostering feelings
of resentment, of course--is an easy way to promote good work.

43 we school -Welingkar Education

4. Give options: Micromanaging how your employees should do their job is an absolute path to failure.
Nobody likes constantly being told what to do, especially in roles where they feel like they deserve some
free will. Give your team free reign to complete their tasks how they best see fit; emphasize results, not

5. Offer feedback: There are few things more valuable than honest feedback. Usually, team members
know that, if a leader takes the time to give them feedback, it means he or she is interested in the work
they are doing--encouraging them to keep improving.
