10.ACHIEVING A WORK-LIFE BALANCE

Work Life Balance consists of the implementation of working arrangements and policies which assist workers in combining employment with other aspects of their lives. The right balance for you today will probably be different for you tomorrow. The right balance for you when you are single will be different when you marry, or if you have children; when you start a new career versus when you are nearing retirement.
However, at the core of an effective work-life balance definition are two key everyday concepts that are relevant to each of us. They are daily Achievement and Enjoyment, ideas almost deceptive in their simplicity.

You cannot get the full value from life without BOTH Achievement and Enjoyment.
At a time when we are working harder than ever before and when we are spending more time actually getting to our job before we even start working at it, the idea of achieving balance between our work life and our personal life is looking more and more like an elusive dream.
Work-life balance is more about what you achieve and enjoy during your working time and what you achieve and enjoy during your personal time. You absolutely need to have both of these things in your life on a daily basis.

In your daily activities it is important to aim to achieve something and aim to enjoy something. You don’t need to change the world to achieve something. Achievements are personal, they can be as big or as small as you like. Nor do you need to feel ecstatic to enjoy something. Enjoyment is more than just laughing; enjoyment can be the personal pride or satisfaction you take in something.

8.TEAM BUILDING

“A team is a small number of people with complementary skills who are committed to a common purpose, performance goals, and approach for which they are mutually accountable”

Team Building refers to a wide range of activities, presented to businesses, schools, sports teams, religious or nonprofit organizations designed for improving team performance. Team building is pursued via a variety of practices, and can range from simple bonding exercises to complex simulations and multi-day team building retreats designed to develop a team (including group assessment and group-dynamic games), usually falling somewhere in between. It generally sits within the theory and practice of organizational development, but can also be applied to sports teams, school groups, and other contexts.

Reasons for Team Building include:

-Improving communication                                                                                  
-Making the workplace more enjoyable
-Motivating a team
-Getting to know each other
-Getting everyone “onto the same page”, including goal setting
-Teaching the team self-regulation strategies
-Helping participants to learn more about themselves (strengths and weaknesses)
-Identifying and utilizing the strengths of team members
-Improving team productivity
-Practicing effective collaboration with team members

7.REPORT WRITING

Some examples of reports:
Informative Reports inform and explain.
Investigative Reports Investigate and present findings.
Evaluation Reports and feasibility studies evaluate information.
Persuasive Reports aim to persuade.
Accident/disciplinary reports provide a record.

…and the examples are more…                                        

It seems, sometimes, that mobilizers and facilitators just do not occupy the same universe as report writers. Perhaps it is because mobilizing and facilitating is a very verbal occupation, and one where the action and the results are the main focus. Reflecting, remembering and recording seem to be put at a lower priority than the current action.

WHY WRITE REPORTS?
These are some of the answers:
because we have to;
-to enable us to keep records;
-to tell about failures and successes;
-for ourselves, to keep on knowing what we are doing;
-to determine further actions;
-to use for evaluation        ……………..

Conclusion:
We should write reports;
Reports should be read; and
Action should result from each report.

6.THE WRITING PROCESS

Writing is a fluid process created by writers as they work. Accomplished writers move back and forth between the stages of the process, both consciously and unconsciously. Young writers, however, benefit from the structure and security of following the writing process in their writing.Students generate ideas for writing: brainstorming; reading literature; creating life maps, webs, and story charts; developing word banks; deciding on form, audience, voice, and purpose as well as through teacher motivation.

Students :  -get their ideas on paper. 
                    -proof their own work by reading aloud and reading for sensibility. 
                    -share and make suggestions for improvement: asking who,what,when,where,why, and how questions about parts of the   story the peer does not understand; looking for better words; and talking about how to make the work better.
                  -Work together on editing for mechanics and spelling.
                  -produce their final copy to discuss with the teacher and write a final draft.
                  -publish their written pieces: sending their work to publishers; reading their    finished story aloud, making books.
