Guidance on Servant Leadership and Executive Coaching in building business relatioships

importance of servant leadership corporations

Importance of relationship building and executive coaching:

The terms Relationship building and Servant Leadership go side-by-side for all types of businesses. It may be a corporate firm, a service sector, a tertiary industry or even a home-based industry. The development of a servant leader is very crucial for the success of a firm and this success is not dependent on the size of the firm. Creating your personal brand-servant leadership will progress your relationships with vendors, clients, suppliers and many other people linked to the supply chain. The importance of Business leadership programs and executive coaching in today's competitive world is extremely high and corporate firms are trying to excel in this department to create a competitive advantage for themselves. For that very reason, corporations are now introducing extensive executive coaching and management skills development programs.
Executive coaching and training
Executive coaching

The concept of a servant leader is an old one. If we talk on a religious level, Muhammad (P.B.U.H) and Jesus preached to his disciples about success. Jesus Christ advised the people that if they wished to become successful leaders, they must first learn to become servants. An executive at the telecom firm AT&T, Mr. Robert Greenleaf actually introduced the term while elaborating on the steps of heading and progressing businesses and corporations.
What is a servant leader?
A servant leader can be defined as a person who, present at any position or rank in an organization, progresses in his work by fulfilling the needs and requirements of the team. This article discusses the possibility and creation of such an environment in a home-based business where mostly teams are not present.
An author writes in his article that true leaders are born with special traits. However, according to many theories, leaders can be trained as well. When one commits himself to inspire others and act as role model for them, the basic servant leadership principles is established and followed. The author points out that this person develops personal ethics which identify true values, rather than slippery cover-ups. Today's corporate firms enhance and polish these skills through executive training programs.

Building Business Relationships

Relationship building in businessWhile building profitable business relationships, the best place to unveil these qualities is to question the client regarding what they want in a product or a service. If one is aiming to be a servant leader, providing value to the client is the best place to initiate the process. There are times, when the client is confused on what he wants, and looks on to the seller for advice. An SL must make his priority to fully aid him in this process. Like in executive coaching programs, this aid includes providing the customer all the knowledge that he should know be aware of, such as benefits and disadvantages of something or how could he improve his current position by not buying something new. 

Servant Leadership: Examples and Practices

Servant leader example


It can also be practiced with vendors. Neglecting the pursuit for the lowest price, you can get to know what the vendor actually desires or how he wants to increase his current business position, and then offer him assistance in what you can do. When a vendor requires some exposure, you can suggest showing them the company name as a project partner.

Volunteer Work

Home based businesses have trouble practicing servant leadership, so an alternative for them would be to volunteer to work in a situation that lies outside one's jurisdiction as a professional, but in a non-profit manner. An example could be of an accountant or a doctor volunteering to help organize a charity even for disabled children without receiving any compensation or stipend for it.

Marijuana - the inner peace for youth

                            Marijuana - the inner peace for youth
Nothing intrigued and fascinated me more than the music and drug culture of 1960’s. Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and The Beatles were nothing less than gods to masses. Spending my teenage listening to these musicians brought the urge to try the drugs as well. Was it LSD and the hallucinogens behind the genius of their music or were they really that gifted was the question that baffled me.

At last I succumbed to this desire of trying Marijuana. A night out with friends was chosen as the ideal time to do it. My friend who had a history of drug abuse boasted that he had scored Afghani marijuana for me and promised it will be an amazing experience. We smoked up and it actually was quite a potent drug, within minutes I felt light headed and really started enjoying myself. Well, I guess at that moment, the tingling voice in my head said " Marijuana is the inner peace for youth ".  Anyways, besides that I found out that getting weed smell out of room was another huge problem that I had to deal with!

But then it started growing on, I could feel that my reflexes were slowing down and my heart beating slower than ever. Things got worse when I got intothe “still phase”, I could hear my friends making jokes and picking on me but Icouldn’t answer them or even move a muscle. Thirst stabbed its pangs in my throat; it felt so parched that even breathing was made difficult. I wanted to scream out to my friends to give me water or jolt me out of this paralyses but thewords just won’t come out. This is when panic overtook me; my mind was numbed by a torrent of thoughts, guilt, fear and anxiety. This grew until I erupted into a fit of nausea and spewed out on the floor. The thing that shook me the most was the attitude of my friends, they hardly made a move to comfort me orhelp me up, and they kept on enjoying their buzz.

The experience left me pondering that is the “high” of drugs worth it when you eventually end up on the floor.

Political Situation of Pakistan

Current Political Situation of Pakistan: Overview

The article initially provides a brief overview about current political situation of Pakistan. Pakistan is a developing country and it is politically unstable but we live in the world where everything is possible. Democratic governments have always failed to complete their tenure which eventually results in a long lasting dictatorship reign. In Pakistani politics, there is a clear domination by few families only and these families have never produced long lasting fruitful results. The political system has been stagnant since 70′s and no drastic change has taken place. The chair of head of state has been a war between the head of the army staff and a few noticeable political leaders. Who has suffered? Well, you guessed it right, the nation!
Pakistani Politics Current Situation

If we observe the political situation of Pakistan, much of the politics is based on different ethnic groups. It’s fair to say that the current political situation of Pakistan is in dire need of substantial changes if we compare it to the political systems of leading nations in the world.

Role of Political Parties in Pakistan

Pakistani PoliticsAlmost every party represents a particular ethnic group, therefore no party has got the support in every region because the role of political parties in Pakistan is very much based upon different ethnic groups they represent. This is one of the major reasons of slow development in some specific areas as compared to others. There are a number key problems in political system of Pakistan, & the list grows on and on with every passing minute. 

Pakistani Politics

Pakistani politics has started to take an adverse route as the layman pursues to struggle in the rut. The current situation in Karachi and Baluchistan is worse than ever. The blame of these riots clearly is on politicians who are just manipulating different groups to get benefits for themselves. If the current political situation in Pakistan does not change, the country would keep on suffering at the hands of monarchs and waderas! The role of youth in politics seems to be missing in this scenario and needs to be looked upon if the country is to strive for betterment. One possible solution for the underlying problem is to improve the problems of education system that erodes as every day falls behind.
“Words, without power, is mere philosophy
Let’s join hands, let’s walk together, let’s make Pakistan a better nation!

Flaws of Education System in Pakistan

pakistani education system problems

Education System in Pakistan

In Human development Report Pakistan is placed at 136th position for having just 49.9% educated population. In addition to that, Pakistan is ranked at 113th out of 120 registered UN members according to the research conducted by UNESCO et. all. Some of the very basic flaws of the education system in Pakistan contribute to the economic, ethnic and sociopolitical crisis within the country.

Flaws of Education System in Pakistan

Firstly, the education system of Pakistan is based on unequal lines. Medium of education is different in both, public and private sector. This create a sort of disparity among people, dividing them into two segments. Such a distraught infrastructure is a basic cause of high illiteracy rate in Pakistan and high drop out rates in rural areas and public school.

pakistan education system problems
Secondly, regional disparity is also a major cause. The schools in Balochistan (the largest province of Pakistan by Area) are not that much groomed as that of Punjab (the largest province Of Pakistan by Population). In FATA, the literacy rate is deplorable constituting 29.5% in males and 3% in females.

The third major cause of flawed education system in Pakistan is gender discrimination. The current primary school ratio of boys and girls is 10:4, which is a cause of huge concern. For the last few years there has been an increase in the growth of private schools. It is believed that Pakistan is among the most prominent states affected by gender discrimination. That not only harms the quality of education in Pakistan but create a gap among haves and have nots. 

Fourthly, the lack of technical education is a biggest flaw in the education policy that has never been focused before. Therefore, less technical people means low standard of education. 

Fifthly, the allocation of funds for education are very low. It is only 1.5 to 2.0 percent of the total GDP. It should be around 7% of the total GDP. At that budget allocation, the illiteracy rate in Pakistan would not decrease but rather increase. The federal and provincial governments need to cut down their expenditures in other areas and spend a bigger proportion of income on education.

pakistani education budget cuts

Moreover, the quality of education in most of the public schools and colleges is well below par; the teachers in government schools are not well trained. People who do not get job in any other sector, they try their luck in educational system. They are not professionally trained teachers so they are unable to train a nation.Quality of teaching needs special attention in rural areas where the teachers lack in all departments. 

In America, Europe and most of the developed countries, the emphasis of the states is on developing virtual education systems i.e. provision of education through online networks. The idea of online education is gathering momentum and many online institutions have been set up which offer online courses and online degrees. The Higher Education Commission and Education ministry need to focus on developing a strong online education network so that students through out the country can benefit. Universities such as Harvard, Berkley and MIT are offering online courses and degrees. It reflects the importance of online education in today's modern high tech world.

Finally, Poverty is also another factor that restrict the parents to send their children to public or private schools. So, they prefer to send their children to Madrassas where education is totally free. The government has to make changes to financial infrastructure to improve the situation. Bank loans for education purposes should not be interest based as it discourages the people of Pakistan to acquire loans. Education loans are offered at low rates through out the world and it enable people to acquire quality education.

Social awareness regarding all these issues need to be spread and we, the people of Pakistan have to work hand in hand with the government authorities to improve the current system. Our children should not be deprived of their basic right to acquire knowledge.

All these issues contribute to high illiteracy rate, which in turn result in economic crisis in shape of high unemployment rate and below-par quality of labor. Moreover, the country suffers on social, political and technological front! There are hundred other problems which need attention but the core-issues need to be addressed as soon as possible. You can read my article Pakistan's Educational System which is an overview of the education infra-structure within the country.

In today's world, the benchmark for excellence is education. Moreover, if a country has a distraught academic infrastructure, the chances to survive in current competitive world are petite. The illiteracy rate in Pakistan is alarmingly high which calls for critical attention. The federal and provincial governments need to work  together towards elimination of flaws of education system in Pakistan.
