Mondays are no more Mundane
This month has been an eye opener to the Fachchas on campus. Nature’s balance been restored! Who would have imagined, the mighty Tuchchas, who, like Double-Oh-Seven's martinis dare not be stirred (until lunchtime, that is) would wake up soon after sunrise, on weekends and head out towards IMDC in their best suit. Placements! ah, that great equalizer, you alone make Term 3 bearable for the fachchas.
As the lucky ones lean back against the comfortable cushions job offers basking in the glory of being ‘The Chosen Ones’ and others break their backs and a sweat over their next interview, Eloquence welcomes everyone to 'Corporate Life 101' of Monday Masti. Now that you’ve got there, let’s make sure you stay there!
Socrates himself said that. One wishes he’d practiced what he preached... He might have realized he was not a hemlock immune, super human, dashing young lad! Well don’t you make that mistake. Know who you are for what you are. Especially if you belong to that elite breed of the blue blooded royals of B-School- The Consultants. Know Thyself-
Mind Your Language
There comes a time in every corporate minion’s life when the English language ceases to make any sense. All bondservants of the business world are expected to attain complete fluency in Biz-Speak in order to succeed. Otherwise one might as well be scrubbing floor in the dungeons of King Jasdariccus’ castle on the most frigid part of the impoverished planet of Galordia. There is some semblance between Biz-Speak and the Queen’s English. But don’t let that fool you. Does the following video make any sense to you? If your answer is Yes, you are made for life... Congratulations!
If it doesn’t, don’t despair... Eloquence has taken the trouble of preparing a list of what NOT to say when ambushed by a jargon spouting boss’ choicest verbal weaponry-
Don’t Manage Stress…Prevent it! Whilst some would argue stress is needed for motivation or to meet deadlines. The reality is, the higher the degree of stress we feel, the less productive and resourceful people are. Stress shuts down creativity, it stops people producing their greatest work and limits the success and potential of the business.
The truth is people perform at their best, have their biggest ideas, and produce their greatest work when feeling calm and in control.
Cool ways to chill the stress out of work...

Until next week, then. The Eloquencians wish you a lovely week ahead and all the best.
