June 16th, 2014 No comments

Hello friends,

Welcome back to a refreshing week with Monday munch. Avinashi welcomes our new teammates on board.

In the beginning of the session, all the new team members were explained about the whole concept of Monday munch.  After that we saw an article which pointed out the 11 things that we should never say at our workplace.  It suggests that saying those things will create a negative image in the mind of those people who are interacting with us.  You must have heard the saying “The written word can be erased – not so with the spoken word”, so it is considered better to use your words carefully whether you are in a meeting or at a coffee table with your colleagues.

Later part of the session all the new comers gave their introduction to the team. Each of them talked about their educational background and about their hobbies. It was really a fun.

That’s all for now…

See you all next week… till then enjoy the rains… Happy monsoon.

The seven hurdles of a successful life – 70th Monday Munch – 10th March, 2014.

March 11th, 2014 No comments

Hello friends,

Welcome back to Monday munch.

Today in the session we saw an article which explained the reasons why people fail in life. We saw that basic skills to live a life are necessary to sustain in this world. Merely having good education will not help to get things done. It says that many people get less than what they deserve because they are satisfied by what they get. They don’t make an attempt to try a little harder and achieve more. Many people are worried about what others would think and stop themselves from taking a different step. People must try to follow their heart than trying to get fit into the mainstream. It even says that people think they are smart by the knowledge they get from education system itself. But the true fact is that people become smart by living smartly from different lessons they get from life. The article says that lack of interest in reading books along with lack of curiosity to learn more things hinder the people from achieving new things in life.

That all for now… will be back soon.

He says that family, curiosity and hunger for knowledge defines him.

Here he has mentioned that Microsoft does not respect tradition- it only respects innovation. Moreover he says”I knew there was no better company to join if I wanted to make a difference”.  He finally said that he believes any company needs talent, resources and perseverance and he finds all the three things in the company. So he hopes to take the company to the next level making a remarkable progress.
