IMG-20200806-WA0039

There are lots of things that may affect your work potential. One among these is your boss. knowing the kind of boss, you have is a very important step in cultivating knowledgeable relationships with them. In spite of everything, bosses can dictate whether your stay with the company is going to be pleasurable or not. Getting on the right foot with your boss is critical for your career as well as your well-being. Considering this, it is crucial that you get to know the different types of bosses to work well with them. Here are 10 differing kinds of bosses, and the how you’ll be able to relate with them.
First, the visionary bosses. Visionary bosses tend to think a lot about the company’s potential, and also the future. They can not only predict what’s going to be hot in future, but also make ambitious plans to get there. Visionary bosses are innovative and experimental. They need plenty of ideas about which direction the company can take. Such bosses typically look for employees who are quick to take initiative, are self-driven enough to create their own growth path. More often than not, they would want you to come up with plans to achieve your self-development goals, and based on that, give you the needed support.
In order for you to endear yourself to a visionary boss, always try and help them achieve their ambitions. Help them understand their goal by making contributions, and by following it on a daily basis. Be a decent listener, demonstrate enthusiasm, and don’t be afraid to take risks. You’ll make mistakes but learn from them. Visionary bosses will appreciate you more for your risk-taking approach – instead of fail-safe approach. It’s best to approach them with bigger business decisions than smaller day-to-day issues. The key to working with them is to know their vision and be resourceful in helping your team and also the organization work towards it. If everything works out well, they’ll have you ever to thank.

Second, the Workaholic: is a manager who, even after breaks, continues to work overtime. They are generally very keen to complete tasks on time, and to do this they will recommend additional working hours. Many of them are rarely going on sick days, or taking leave of the office. Working under a workaholic manager is often stressful, especially if you’re not one. There’s a high chance it’ll greatly impact on your work life balance. If you would like to flourish under this kind of management, confirm you complete your deliverable on time. They’re going to have no reason to carry you back for more work.
Third, Micro Managers: These are dreaded in any workplace. Most bosses tend to become micro managers whenever the company is making losses. They will start concentrating on every single action you make, be it work or non-work related. They might concentrate on things like how long you took during lunch, what amount of work you’ve been able to deliver in a day or how much time you’ve spent on the phone, there is a very close monitoring. In such a situation, don’t take their over-involvement personally. Just do your work normally. If this is your boss type, the best solution is to make them busy. The only way to do this is by making sure you complete your work in time. They will have so much work to review that they will forget about micro managing.
Fourth, the traditionalists: These bosses tend to adhere to old company traditions, and they may mostly bring this up during meetings. They have probably been in the company for a very long time and they don’t take kindly to change. You should be careful never to argue with a traditionalist boss, always be receptive to their ideas. You never know, some of their archaic methods might actually work and yield good results. If ever there’s an easier way of executing a task, you can bring it to their attention in a polite manner. They don’t like to feel challenged. They’ll get more receptive to your ideas and opinions once they feel you’re receptive to theirs.
Fifth, the intimidator: These bosses are often called dictators as well. They resort to intimidation tactics, such as yelling, when communicating with their employees. They will definitely scold you if you fail to perform in a satisfactory manner. A good way to deal with managers like this is to make sure you do your work. Never give them reasons for shouting at you. Communicate with them about the work that you do if necessary, but don’t yield to their methods of coercion. They are going to come and thank you for that. As in the case of the micro-managers, never take it personally, It’s always about the job.
Sixth, the Unpredictable Boss: If you have an unpredictable boss, then there’s not much that you can do. These bosses’ actions are hard to predict. Although they may be happy with something today, tomorrow may not necessarily be the same. That means you’ll just have to break into a sweat every time you report to them. The only way you can try to alleviate their “unpredictability” is by making sure you are doing your job as expected.

 

Seventh, the Under-Qualified boss: This boss is one who is less educated than you, or knows little about the company and its processes. These bosses tend to be the creation of their own employees, since they will rely on you to provide information they might not be aware of. Never underestimate or undermine their power. Keep them close, and explain things they might not be aware of. Once they get up to speed with everything, they will have you to thank. If top management feels that they are underperforming, chances are you might be promoted to their position. It will always be a win-win situation for you.
Eighth, the Pacesetter: They mostly set challenges for their team to meet and expects the best outcome. They are not afraid to work hard to rescue a situation themselves. To work with such a boss, you should work hard and aim to be the best you can be, ask for clarifications on what you need to do and always share clear and regular progress updates.

In conclusion, there isn’t anything that you can do to change your office boss. We do have to follow their own goals, and they must do their utmost to attain them. Be modest, and from these you will learn a lot. Whatever group they are in, there is one attribute that they have that you can come to appreciate.

Feeling Stuck? Checkout These Interview First Impression Tips (What You Should Know).

IMG-20200806-WA0038

An interview is often a structured conversation coupled with questions and answers about a particular phenomenon. Interviews are mostly carried out in the employment or hiring process. As the saying goes ‘first impression counts’, the first impression your interviewer gets about you most often than not becomes a long-lasting impression therefore it is very essential to leave good first impressions with people you come across with.

It is often said that an impression is gotten within the first few minutes of the interview but the bottom line is that you should leave a good impression before leaving the interview room. There are therefore some tips you should know in order to leave the best first impressions when you go for interviews.

First, your appearance to the interview matters a lot. Thus, your dressing, make up, neatness and all that is noticed at first sight. Your dress should not be too tight or too loose, it should just fit. It must be official, appropriate (for the particular role you are vying for) and professional. People normally say, ‘you are addressed the way you dress’ meaning your appearance can go a long way to tell much about you. This does not connote that you should wear sophisticated clothes but do well to give your best shot at it. Your perfume should be very light and okay, not one that takes over the whole room. Your shoes should be neatly polished and your attire neatly ironed. Your make up should also be light and okay. It should not be overly done as it may take up all the attention. In all, look professional.

Also, your timing should be checked. One important tip to making a very good first impression is making it a point to report to the venue of your interview on time. You should be there at least 10-15 minutes before the time scheduled. This gives the impression that you can be reliable and prompt at carrying out your duties. You arriving late for an interview is a very big red flag you are raising to your employers. It means you are unreliable and cannot demonstrate promptness in everything you do.
Moreover, act confidently. Demonstrating confidence makes you seem up and doing and knowing what you are about. Enter the interview room with your head up with a beautiful smile, greet and offer a firm handshake. As much as possible do not carry your phone to the interview room but if you do, remember to put it off or on dead silence in order to avoid any interruptions. More importantly, practice very well before attending the interview. Get someone or people who is/are highly intellectual, get some sample questions and try out some rehearsals a couple of times before attending the interview. This may help boost your confidence level and make you more relaxed. In answering the questions posed to you, do not fret.

Do not act confused and not knowing what to say. Confidently attempt the question if even you have no idea about it. You may not get that answer right but your confidence may impress.
To make a good impression at an interview, you should carry along with you, a portfolio. That is, hard copies of your resume, cover letters, certificates and others that are relevant for your application.

You must also have much insight in the position you are applying for and the company at large. Carry out much research and get your facts right. This will make you look ready for the job. You should also look out for the people who will sit on the panel to interview you before attending the interview. You may go through their LinkedIn accounts to get their names right and at least get an idea of who they are before attending the interview.

Lastly, know why you are there. Many people fail to precisely state why they are at the interview. You should be able to tell the interviewer how your expertise could contribute to the success of the company. In short, your answer should go beyond ‘I am here for an interview’
In conclusion, you should be kind and give pleasant remarks. Do not be rude even if a comment passed by the interviewer does not go down well with you. Leaving a very good impression at an interview is a step closer to your hiring therefore give your best shot it.

Exclusive: Konnekt World Gh Presents, 100 Mentors for Bridget Boakye’s Birthday.

For my 27 birthday,

I mobilized $2000 for a giving campaign that bought health insurance for 200 women, children, and the elders in Central Ghana. It was one of my most special birthdays – being able to celebrate my life through rallying my friends, family, and network to protect the lives of others.

For my birthday this year, I am launching another such campaign to help communities in Ghana. As I have shared consistently on my blog, I have benefited immensely from the generosity of others and I am insistent on passing this generosity on.

There Is No Better Cause Now Than That For Human Care & Compassion

My giving campaign this year centers on human to human connection. From a global pandemic to global movement for Black Lives, the world has changed dramatically in the last 6 months. All of us have experienced a reckoning in some form – whether spiritual, socio-cultural, physical, financial, emotional, or mental. For older adults who have more bearings about the ebbs and flows of life, this period might just be uncomfortable. But for younger adults, the feelings surrounding this time goes beyond discomfort as my podcast interview with James Erskine revealed. Many young Ghanaians in particular feel unsure, afraid, and concerned about their future and opportunities.

As such, I have partnered with Ghana-based non-profit, KonneKt, to rally 100 people in my network to mentor such young people in Ghana.

About KonneKt

KonneKt is a global professional mentoring and coaching platform with personalized programs that support young Africans with their emotional, academic, and professional wellbeing.

KonneKt connects young people with mentors to answer their questions, review their background and objectives, share practical strategies for success, and follow up to discuss milestones and results.

KonneKt’s platform and well-tailored mentoring program makes connections seamless for mentors and supports them with necessary resources and insights to allow them to deliver value to their mentees within the precious time they have available.

Celebrate With Me

I imagine that by you sharing your perspective, experiences, and fears at this time, a young person might find respite that they are not alone. That alone would be enough. If you can share opportunities, networks, information and insight, that might change his/her life. Imagine what that would mean for a generation down the line. I am excited to do my part in committing to this work.

If you would like to join me, kindly fill out the form below and the team at KonneKt will get back to you immediately.

3: So What do you think would be the essence of this message to the youth out there and to people in general?

The message to the youth and people out there is very simple; ‘Take up the responsibility to become who you have to be and don’t leave it to anyone or chance, start from where you are and never up’!

 

4: Awesome…Would you recommend this book? To whom? And why?

Yes! To everyone out there especially the youth because discovering your purpose and unearthing your potentials you need to have access to the right information and also taking action. And this book seeks to enlighten it’s reader.

 

5: Which chapter of the book got you glued to it?

Wow! Almost all the chapters, but 3rd chapter got me glued.

WhatsApp Image 2020-05-15 at 20.40.02

6: Great. Can You Share What Got You Glued to the 3rd Chapter?

The 3rd chapter enlightened me more about doing something about myself by keeping watch and taking responsibility over three important things in my life if I really want to unearth my potential:
i. My Thoughts.
ii. My Words.
iii. My Actions. 
He explained vividly that these three things are interconnected and can’t be separated.
And also I have to put in the work in order to get the results,i.e paying the price in order to get the prize and to project the myself rather than living in the shadows of others.

So there you have it. What are you waiting for? Don’t Hesitate; Go get Yours NOW!!

Entrepreneurship Is Freedom. You Need Discipline, Resilience And Patience – CEO, WESHEA, Ms. Akua Afriyie Shares With SammytheAuthor.


WhatsApp Image 2020-06-06 at 17.12.53
On our journey through life, we encounter lots of challenges but in the midst of it all, Hardwork pays with God at the Centre of it all; every step of the way. You will fail at a point but don’t let it discourage You. You will fall but get up and keep moving. Today on Exclusives with SammytheAuthor, an Inspiring Ghanaian – American Serial Entrepreneur, shares with us, her life story and career as an Entrepreneur and Founder and CEO of WESHEA. Checkout the Interview Below.
1: Tell us a bit about yourself. Who is Miss Akua Afriyie? (Background, Education and Career).
Born and raised in Ghana to an American mother and Ghanaian father. My family were missionaries in Ghana and I enjoyed my experience. Moved to US after high school for college where I held several leadership roles.
Founder and CEO of WESHEA, a global skincare company with its headquarters and production house in Ghana. WESHEA has won several business competitions including Total Ghana’s “Startupper of the Year 2019” and “Pontiac Big Idea Grant Program 2020”
I am also the Founder and CEO of NBY Foundation (formerly known as Afriyie Foundation) The nonprofit organization is in honor of my late father who passed in October 2019. Our mission it to provide educational materials and basic needs to disadvantaged children in Ghana.

2: Great.😊 What’s the story (inspiration) behind Your Personality?
My parents, especially my father. My parents were very passionate in everything they do. My father’s life was very inspirational to me. He raised me in Ghana, while my mom and other siblings were in the USA so we spent a lot of time together. He always planted in my head the believe that I can achieve anything I put my mind to. His life was certainly a testimony to that. My father who’s highest form of education was high school, one day became a lecturer at a university in the USA.
That story alone gave me wings to fly. Because of that, I am fearless, passionate and determined.

WhatsApp Image 2020-06-06 at 17.17.06

3: Woow..That’s Awesome. Tell us more about your Company/Initiative, WeShea?
WESHEA is a global skincare business. We manufacture Shea butter for corporations that use Shea butter for cosmetics, food processing and pharmaceuticals needs.
We also make beauty products such as creams, body butters, oils, scrubs, mask and more. All our products are 100% Natural, vegan, cruelty free, chemical free etc.

WhatsApp Image 2020-06-06 at 17.20.01

4: Beautiful. So what triggered the idea to commence WeShea? Anything Shareable?
I’ve always had a desire for business. WESHEA came about because I always get compliments on my skin and hair. People would ask me what I use and I would tell them it was simply Shea butter.

WhatsApp Image 2020-06-06 at 17.17.05(1)

6: Great. Being one of the 10 finalist in your Entrepreneurship Program, shaped me into what I am today, What inspired you to build such a great Initiative?
When I first came to the US, I knew I wanted to find a way to help people back home. I had access to resources and opportunities here in the US, so I wanted to make resources accessible to people back home as well.
While brainstorming, I realized that one of the biggest challenges in Ghana was unemployment. I knew that as young people of this generation, we could no longer wait on the government to make things happen.

WhatsApp Image 2020-06-06 at 17.20.00
I figured one of the best ways to provide job opportunities is to support entrepreneurs and small businesses so that in the next 5 years, they would have hopefully expanded and provide work.
So, whenever I got paid for work, I would put some money aside and by the time I came to Ghana for holidays, I had enough to do the entrepreneurship program.
We ended up giving 2 people a total of GHc 4,000. Back then it was $1,000. It may not be much, but I am grateful that I was able to help.

7: That’s Awesome. What are some of the challenges you faced or still facing in your quest to achieve your Dreams/Goals?
Well Covid-19 for sure has been a challenge for most businesses including mine. Other than that, I can’t complain.
My businesses do go through challenges. But I see them as lessons and necessary for my journey. Entrepreneurship is not all glamorous, although it may seem that way.

WhatsApp Image 2020-06-06 at 17.17.05

8: How was the feeling when WESHEA Growth Project won last year’s Startupper of the Year by total Challenge, organized by Total Petroleum Ghana Limited?
It was amazing. I will forever be grateful for that opportunity because it gave us the capital to invest in our production facility in Upper East, Ghana.
As an entrepreneur, getting recognized for my business idea gave me the confidence that I’m doing something right so I need to keep going. There’s no time to stop.

WhatsApp Image 2020-06-06 at 17.17.03

9: If you had the opportunity to turn back the hands of time, what would you have changed in your business life?
I wouldn’t change anything. I love the journey, the ups and downs, lows and highs. Every part of the journey has been necessary for my growth.

WhatsApp Image 2020-06-06 at 17.17.08

10: Any piece of advice for the young ones aspiring to be like you or pursue your kind of work?
Entrepreneurship is freedom. Freedom to be you, to be creative, to answer to yourself, to not take orders from anyone, to enjoy life etc.
However, in order to succeed on this path, you need discipline, resilience and patience.
If you are looking for quick money, this is not the field for you. It takes time to build a successful business. However, once your hard work pays off, you will enjoy the seeds that you sowed.

WhatsApp Image 2020-06-06 at 17.12.52
