‘Women to outshine men at workplace’

The time for women to shine at the workplace is not too far! By 2020, one in every three workers will be a woman and they will increasingly be in control of the workplace, a study has revealed. “This will change company culture in an in-depth manner due to the difference in female management styles,” says the study on “Working in a globalised space” conducted by Ericsson Malaysia. “Women will move rapidly up the chain of command and their emotional-intelligence skills may become ever more essential,” states the study.
As women manage their jobs more cautiously than men and focus on long term effects, they are consensus builders, conciliators and collaborators, it says.
“Women will employ a different leadership style. It will be heavily engaged and motivational,” said Sebastian Barros, head of multimedia and consulting system integration, Ericsson Malaysia. “The workplace-research group Catalyst studied 353 Fortune 500 companies and found that those with the maximum number of women in senior management had a higher return on equities — by more than a third,” he said.
The report also says that flexible career paths and nomadic working environments will be the primary elements of the future workplace. It states that future workers will be able to work from anywhere spending less time in a physical location and more time being on the move.

Elton mom to auction his records
London: Pop icon Elton John’s mother is to sell off 40 platinum and gold discs from the star’s chart-topping career.
Sheila Farebrother, 85, is also putting up for auction personal items like copies of recordings John has given her over the years, as well as the VIP passes she used for backstage access to her son when he was on tour.
The treasure trove for pop fans also includes the disc for John’s first major hit single, Your Song, a platinum award for the first million sales of his 1973 album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, and another for the phenomenal success of Candle In The Wind, reported Daily Mail online.
Sir Elton, 63, who was born Reginald Dwight, has sold more than 250 million records and is the most successful solo British artist of all time.
The Oscar and multiple-Grammy-winner is the third-most successful act in US chart history and has amassed an estimated $500 million fortune. Farebrother used to store all the memorabilia in a room at her former home in Bray in Berkshire. —PTI

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
