Leadership Styles

Leadership style is the manner and approach of providing direction, implementing plans, and motivating people. There are many different leadership styles. Different styles work in different situations. A team will be a stronger with a variety of different leadership styles. Some basic leadership styles are:-

  • Authoritative: This type of (autocratic) leaders provide clear expectations of what needs to be done, when it should be done and how? Decision-making is less creative under this style. Autocrative leaders make decisions independently with little or no input from the rest of the group. However, this style is ideal when there is little time for group decision- making.

  • Participative / Democratic: This style is based on 'Let us work together' philosophy. This is considered as most effective way of leadership style as the democratic leaders welcome the ideas / suggestions of their subordinates / group members. Here group members are motivated to participate and be creative.

  • Delegative / Free-rein: Here the leader allows the employees to make the decisions. However, the leader is still responsible for the decisions that are made. This is used when employees are able to analyze the situation and determine what needs to be done and how to do it. Free-rein (also called as 'Laissez Faire') is non-interference in the affairs of others. This style can be effective in situations where group members are highly qualified in an area of expertise.

Proceeding cautiously for Real-estate Investment

An investment in real estate should not be a causal decision as it is a long-term investment and requires a lot of careful planning. Some important factors to be considered if you invest in real-estate for good returns in future:-

  • Having Adequate Funds: Most buyers do not follow this. Buyers before buying any property should definitely have a back-up of 40-45% of the total property value to not only to meet the initial payments but also for sudden medical crisis. Apart from this, buyers should preferably go for bank loan as the Financial Institutions will check the legal issues if any involved in the property like NOC, ownership, EC, patta etc.

  • Identifying the right place: This is a very difficult task for the buyers as Realtors', Flat / Villa Promoters' / Agents' verbal assurances / assumptions cannot always be relied. Buyers should thoroughly research whether the location has / will have all residential enclaves nearby, commercial spaces like offices, malls, schools, hospitals, hotels & transport facilities.

  • Antecedent Verification About Realtors: Buyers should thoroughly check the track records of the developers like searching reviews in Google, past performance, plan approvals from the concerned govt. departments, quality of construction, amenities offered etc. Buyers should especially be cautious in case of properties where construction work has not yet been started.

  • As far as selling the real estate property is concerned, investors should prefer long-term returns, means they should sell after 7-10 years to get more returns as expected. This is necessary also to save on tax from capital gains.

    Buyers or Sellers of real-estate properties, they should have patience to get steady returns and verification about developers will keep the investment secure. To search properties or to sell your properties or to rent / lease them out, please visit here.

Types of Mutual Fund Advisors

Registered Mutual Fund Distributors who are qualified to sell MFs, are called by following 4 different names:-

  • Banks: Banks offer advisory and products services to the investors. Most banks do not charge fees.

  • Plain MF Agent: These agents help in just investing in MFs and most do not advise. Though they do not charge advisory fees, they charge a nominal transaction fee to cover their minimum costs. Their main source of revenue is from MF directly.

    When investors invest, the fund house deducts a nominal fee already fixed from the investors investment amount out of the amount invested.

  • SEBI-Registered Advisers: These advisers have to function as per strict SEBI guidelines, complying with the mandatory requirements. The most important requirement is that they should segregate her advisory business from their distribution business.

  • Financial Planners: These financial planners are qualified & certified financial planners. There are around 50000 registered distributors and independent financial planners in India (in 2013).

    Financial planners who make a holistic financial plan, charge an advisory fee. Besides, they also guide through the process of adhering to the plan and evaluate once a year or two. These financial planners understand the financial goals, gets details of income and expenditure, medical needs of the prospective investors and then devise the financial plan.

  • Travellers should familiarise themselves with with the local customs. Travellers should take photographs only after getting permission of the locals and should not hurt people's sensibilities.

  • Will you be able to control your emotions or anger by not negatively projecting about your former to your children. Do you, then your children not only will not respect you but also your second spouse.

  • Travellers should not treat the parks and mountains as their private picnic spots. In forest areas, they should avoid making noise, listening to loud music or throwing litter around as garbage is a major problem in India.

  • In stead of going with a fixed list of things to visit, travellers should be very flexible to let the destination surprise them.

  • During peak, summer holidays & festive seasons, it will be very difficult for foreign tourists to book tickets for flights, trains & buses. They should book much in advance. For multiple travel portals, please visit here to book your travel needs in India.

Planning Second Marriage? Ask Yourself.

Before entering in to second marriage (if you have decided for), you should set priorities to not land in to same mistakes again. Ask yourself some important questions and find answers before entering in to second marriage:-

  • You should first get convinced that first marriage has to be finished legally and also in mind and heart. If the intention is to get back with former spouse, then should not go for second marriage.

  • Being very patient and taking a lot of time are the most important factors for second marriage. Emotional & psychological feelings should not push you to move fast towards second marriage. Examining own life, attitudes and anlysing the reasons for failures in first marriage will help in deciding for successful second marriage.

  • Carrying forward anger over former spouse will lead to terrible frustration even after second marriage which you should not.

  • Will you be able to control your emotions or anger by not negatively projecting about your former to your children? Do you, then your children not only will not respect you but also your second spouse.

  • Are you mentally prepared to set boundaries to your children just to respect your new mate? Not necessarily, your children should love your new mate.

  • Will you (your new mate) be ready to welcome step-children. This needs time and patience to decide by both of you.

  • Will you love your new mate's children? It will be very difficult for children (as they are) to adjust to new family environment. But as an adult, you should understand and be kind to them to make them feel at home with you.

  • Most Important:- Do not expect perfection from your new mate or do not expect that new mate will fill the shortcomings of your former.
