A lot of employees are afraid to ask questions because they are worried that their skills are being judged by the quality of the questions they ask.
Some employees ask questions trying to impress somebody and it does not add value to their overall effort.
Some do it just right.
As long as you have the right intention that will be felt and noticed in the way you convey that message/question. Also, if the question is really you asking for help, then doing the right preparation for the question will save you and the other person a lot of time. Do your homework. Check the items A, B, and C that are typically checked for that type of question prior to approaching somebody for a favor.
At the end of the day, you and the person answering your question are most likely on the same team and you have the same end goals and those goals are to keep the end customers happy.
Keep in mind that it is always better to over-communicate than to under-communicate.
Some people get motivated by being criticized and some people by being praised. Being praised definitely does not demotivate you. Therefore, to motivate people in a group environment and make a change, one should not criticize! Right? Or not?
If cloud computing continues at this pace, I predict that in 5 years most of us will be walking around with laptops/devices that are dumb terminals and that all the major processing will be done in the cloud. Wouldn't corporations want this so that their employees don't anymore walk around with laptops and a lot of confidential data on them. If you keep it in the cloud then it can be governed better as long as your cloud is secure. All the corporations already require you to VPN into their network if you want to do your work; so taking it one step further and your laptops being dumb terminals is where this is heading. - almirsCorner.com - #cloud #cloudcomputing #dumbterminals #software #tech #almirsCorner
