15 Web Alternatives to Popular Desktop Software

15 Web Alternatives to Popular Desktop Software | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Web applications have come a long way. They used to be amateur imitations of their desktop counterparts, with only one or two functions and not at all practical. But my, have these web apps grown. Web apps these days have become so powerful and useful that in some cases, they’ve begun to replace desktop software.


Desktop programs are great and all, but they don’t provide the same benefits as web apps that make use of cloud computing. With most web apps, you only need a browser and an internet connection to access all your data online. That beats having to install annoying programs any day. To give you a better sense of how useful web apps have become, I’ve compiled a list of web tools and apps that can very well replace some desktop programs. I hope you take the time to try them all out. You’ll be surprised how well they work.

 

Without further ado, here are some great web alternatives to the popular desktop programs we all love.

How To Rewire Your Brain For Greater Happiness

How To Rewire Your Brain For Greater Happiness | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Wouldn’t it be awesome if we could hack into our own brains and rewire them to be happier?


Science has shown we actually can thanks to a phenomenon called experience-dependent neuroplasticity. "It’s a fancy term to say the brain learns from our experiences," says Rick Hanson, neuropsychologist and author of the book Hardwiring Happiness. "As we understand better and better how this brain works, it gives us more power to change our mind for the better."


Hanson assures he isn't just talking new-age mumbo jumbo. "This is not just 'smell the roses,'" he says. "I am talking about positive neuroplasticity. I am talking about learning. … The brain is changing based on what flows through it."

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

The bad news: Our brains are wired to be negative. The good news: Happiness doesn't mean you have to be naive, just think realistically.

Performance Review Gender Bias: High-Achieving Women are 'Abrasive'

Performance Review Gender Bias: High-Achieving Women are 'Abrasive' | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Does gender play a role in the type of feedback an employee receives at review time? We had a linguist crunch the numbers.


Not long ago I was talking to an engineering manager who was preparing performance reviews for his team. He had two people he wanted to promote that year, but he was worried that his peers were only going to endorse one of them. “Jessica is really talented,” he said. “But I wish she’d be less abrasive. She comes on too strong.” Her male counterpart? “Steve is an easy case,” he went on. “Smart and great to work with. He needs to learn to be a little more patient, but who doesn’t?”


I don’t know whether Jessica got her promotion, but the exchange got me wondering how often this perception of female abrasiveness undermines women’s careers in technology.

Strong employee are the back bone of the organisations. How your company perform in the market it is totally depend on the team that how much they have experience, how they adopt the new techniques and how long they deal with the same organisation. If company ignore the senior and experienced employee's need then it effects on the work. And you can see market value of that particular company how it perform in the industry. So it is more important that companies should have senior and experienced person for their work.

How To Master The Art Of Giving Negative Feedback

How To Master The Art Of Giving Negative Feedback | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

When you’re a leader, giving feedback, both positive and negative, comes with the territory. But not everyone is comfortable giving it. Sarah Green, a senior associate editor with the Harvard Business Review, recently scoured HBR’s blog for the site’s best advice for how to give negative feedback. Here are her five tips:


1. Be direct by avoiding the feedback “sandwich.”


Instead of couching criticism with positive feedback (which can dilute the message and sounds insincere), approaching the issue directly and with transparency allows everyone to understand the purpose of the discussion and keep the conversation on track. For example, if a colleague’s presentation style needs improvement, you can approach the conversation by asking if you can provide some feedback. They’ll (most likely) say yes, and will be more open to accepting it.

Step away from the feedback "sandwich," stick to the facts, and three other tips to giving good feedback.

Why Women Don’t Apply for Jobs Unless They're 100% Qualified

Why Women Don’t Apply for Jobs Unless They're 100% Qualified | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

You’ve probably heard the following statistic: Men apply for a job when they meet only 60% of the qualifications, but women apply only if they meet 100% of them.


The finding comes from a Hewlett Packard internal report, and has been quoted in Lean In, The Confidence Code and dozens of articles. It’s usually invoked as evidence that women need more confidence. As one Forbes article put it, “Men are confident about their ability at 60%, but women don’t feel confident until they’ve checked off each item on the list.” The advice: women need to have more faith in themselves.

Yes, Flexible Hours Ease Stress. But Is Everyone on Board?

Yes, Flexible Hours Ease Stress. But Is Everyone on Board? | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Everyone with a job knows how stressful it can be when personal priorities clash with work schedules. The conflict could involve a continuing medical concern, taking care of children or aging parents, or getting enough exercise or running errands. A too-strict schedule combined with too many demands can cause workers to feel that they have let down their companies, their families and themselves.

A recent study, published in The American Sociological Review, aimed to see whether the stress of work-life conflicts could be eased if employees had more control over their schedules, including being able to work from home. As might be expected, the answer was yes — but before everyone deserts their desks, some important caveats bear consideration.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

A study shows that working from home can make you happier. Face time at the office, however, has value, too.

Debunking The Myth That All Millennials Are The Same

Debunking The Myth That All Millennials Are The Same | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

The Myth


The gross generalizations should raise eyebrows because millennials currently represent 60% of our workforce.


On a positive note, the segment seems to care about the environment. Also, they’re said to be real wizards when it comes to technology including social media.


Ironically though, the tech-savvy millennial set may be inadvertently exacerbating the negative stereotypes via what many construe as a propensity for digital oversharing. It’s as if they want the entire world to know what they’re thinking, eating, drinking, liking, and not liking. And for better or worse opinions about our companies and beloved brands aren’t off limits.


Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Millennials, in general, have been negatively stereotyped as an entitled, self-centered, apathetic bunch with short attention spans and a questionable work ethic.

Age and Gender Matter in Viral Marketing

Age and Gender Matter in Viral Marketing | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

To gain better insight into what makes people share content online, Fractl studied the emotions associated with viral marketing campaigns, plotting the ones that are most commonly associated with viral content on Robert Plutchik’s comprehensive Wheel of Emotions:


  1. Curiosity
  2. Amazement
  3. Interest
  4. Astonishment
  5. Uncertainty


Then, we looked more closely to see how certain demographics respond to different types of content.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Nearly every digital marketer has a goal of creating a viral campaign. Getting mass exposure for high-quality content provides huge value to clients, but it’s not always easy to pull off; it takes an understanding of the complexity of human emotion and how it plays into consuming and sharing content online.

Fixing a Work Relationship Gone Sour

Fixing a Work Relationship Gone Sour | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

The good news is that even some of the most strained relationships can be repaired. In fact, a negative relationship turned positive can be a very strong one. “Going through difficult experiences can be the makings of the strongest, most resilient relationships,” says Susan David, a founder of the Harvard/McLean Institute of Coaching and author of the HBR article, “Emotional Agility.” The bad news is that fixing a relationship takes serious effort.


“Most people just lower their expectations because it’s easier than dealing with the real issues at hand,” says Brian Uzzi, professor of leadership and organizational change at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management and author of the HBR article, “Make Your Enemies Your Allies.” But, he says, the hard work is often worth it, especially in a work environment where productivity and performance are at stake. Here’s how to transform a work relationship that’s turned sour.

Uncomfortable Being the Boss? 5 Tips That Will Help

Uncomfortable Being the Boss? 5 Tips That Will Help | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

1. Don't pretend you're not really in charge.


If the buck stops at your desk, acting like you're the same as everyone else won't work. It's a bit like parents who try to function as their children's friends, rather than as authority figures. It may be more fun in the short run, but will likely lead to bad results in the long run.


There are a very few exceptions--one is Morning Star, the tomato processor that has rigorously maintained a non-hierarchical structure since the 1970s. But that takes a lot of forethought, planning, and careful hiring of like-minded individuals. And even so, the company's non-CEO founder must occasionally serve as decider of last resort when employees are unable to resolve their conflicts.

Why Your Age Matters More Than You Think At Work

Why Your Age Matters More Than You Think At Work | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

For years, offices have been filled with the fresh-faced younger generation who fill the entry-level desks, the established middle who fill the management roles and the older senior executives who are near retirement. But as tech-savvy millennials enter the workforce causing Gen-X-ers and baby boomers to step out of their comfort zones, talk of the generational divide is everywhere.


Recently, national staffing company Spherion released their 2014 Emerging Workforce Study. The study of over 2,000 employees revealed that beyond different communication styles, one’s age also impacts how employees feel about their own career potential and can influence their perception of their coworkers’ and supervisors’ abilities. They found that millennials are more judgemental of the capabilities of their coworkers and more opinionated about their own career opportunities than their older workplace peers.

The 10 Biggest Mistakes People Make When Requesting A Raise

The 10 Biggest Mistakes People Make When Requesting A Raise | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

The problem with asking for a raise is that there are only a few ways it could go right, and so many ways it could go wrong.


The best outcome would be getting more money than you imagined, but you’d also be happy with getting exactly what you wanted, and if not that, to at least see a bump, even if it’s smaller than what you hoped for.


But in the pick-a-path book of life, it seems many more paths lead to being denied, with the worst paths leading to alienating your superiors, later being passed over for a promotion, and worst of all, having to take a counteroffer from a firm for which you don’t really want to work and burning a bridge in the process.

The Enormous Cost of Unhappy Employees

The Enormous Cost of Unhappy Employees | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

A few weeks ago, we talked about why happiness at work matters; this week I'd like to share the flip side of that: the gigantic cost of unhappy employees.


Employee engagement has been a hot topic for several years now, but what does it really mean and how do you know if your employees are engaged at work? And why does it matter?


Gallup's State of the Global Workplace reported on employee engagement in more than 140 countries and divided employees into 3 categories:


  • "Engaged employees work with passion and feel a profound connection to their company. They drive innovation and move the organization forward.
  • Not Engaged employees are essentially "checked out." They're sleepwalking through their workday, putting time--but not energy or passion--into their work.
  • Actively Disengaged employees aren't just unhappy at work; they're busy acting out their unhappiness. Every day, these workers undermine what their engaged coworkers accomplish.


Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Most business owners know that unhappy employees cost you money, but you'll be shocked at how high that cost actually is.

Sleep Deprived? 3 Tricks to Get Through the Day | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Maybe you have a newborn at home or maybe it's that insane week before an impossible deadline. Whatever the ultimate cause of your sleep deprivation, occasionally we all have times in our lives when we can't heed the sensible advice of experts to get enough sleep.


When these crunch times hit, you might feel like curling up into a little ball under your desk and sleeping away the day, but unfortunately you need to find a way to soldier on. Science can help. New York Magazine's consistently fascinating Science of Us column recently reached out to sleep researchers to round up advice on what to do when you've had a really, really lousy night's sleep.


All of these scientists stressed that consistently sleeping less than seven or eight hours a night is a truly terrible idea, but they did have tips to offer for these emergency situations, which writer Melissa Dahl organized into a helpful timeline for the sleep deprived.

Of course and it' an interesting aspect that the  staff is how influenced by how the decision is made... decisions might be powerful  and  with full of confidence made by either by more thinking by more by intuition, the essence is the  congruity, the authenticity of those making it and the transparence of the process...

The workplace today is much different from the workplace of 30, 20, and even 10 years ago. Open office designs, in-house baristas, and for many organizations bosses managing from across the country are now the norm. Between video conferencing, email, and instant messaging, physical proximity to the office is no longer a requirement. Companies are hiring based on talent and fit, not if someone can be in their chair 24/7. This change has led to entire teams being spread across time zones, states, and even countries. While it can be tricky to report to a remote manager, I’m here to tell you it’s possible.
