How To Know If Difficult Times Are Affecting Your Team Productivity Negatively

How To Know If Difficult Times Are Affecting Your Team Productivity Negatively

Right now, times are tough for everyone but not all of them will come out to admit they they are struggling. It may happen to your team as well. Surely this difficult period has affected every individual differently. However, some of them are not willing to just come out and tell they have difficult times adjusting to the situation or dealing with their problems. The cause can be pride, or anything on personal level. 

Signs to spot in your team productivity

When your team are affected by difficult times, there are signs you can spots. It is better to notice the signs so you can provide solutions to help your team’s well being and productivity. Here are some of the most common signs to spot:

Unable to concentrate on their work

When your team are affected greatly by something, more problems come and it will be harder for them to stay focused on their tasks. The sign can be in more frequent breaks or dip in output. Also, different department may show different signs. For example, production teams keep lagging on meeting deadlines. Or customer service department has their declining calls increased. 

Tardiness

Tardiness

When your team members are experiencing problems outside of work their tardiness tend to show even more. They are late coming at work, or trying to get home as early as possible. Even the small mishaps at work can make them feel disengaged more, making them unable to be on time in many things related to their responsibilities. 

When team members are affected

Quality of work decreasing is also a sign of when your team members are affected greatly by difficult times. It can be some missing details that keep increasing, or submitting works that are not what have been required during the previous meetings. This sign is usually more visible in content creation team because you can see any differences and changes of their quality work. 

Withdrawing from any social engagement

Regardless of how stiff or tight a workplace is, social element will always be there. Many social activities can bring your team closer even simply from sharing talk during lunch or in the pantry. Team members who are having difficult times tend to avoid any social events both at work or outside. 

Consistent needs for approval

Keep asking for approval could be a sign that your team members’ confidence have been affected by difficult times they are experiencing. The need of constant reassurance is being asked to make them through the day. They tend to have more uncertainties in making decisions as well. 

Do not judge too quickly

The best thing you can do as team leader when spotting these signs is to not judge too quickly. Avoid second-guessing yourself or assuming things. Try to be as supportive as you can and provide help they may need from you. If they truly need extra hours, give them. Then, try to motivate your team in a positive and encouraging manner so they can get back on track. 

Before You Go Diving in Manta Point Bali- the Guide

Before You Go Diving in Manta Point Bali: the Guide

Descending to the Manta Point

Manta Ray, one of the gentle giants in the ocean has long been a favourite among divers. It’s always a pleasant experience diving with them. Despite of their enormous body, Manta Rays are known to be very friendly and welcoming to human! Moreover, having the biggest brain among the fishes makes them very intelligent—in par with the dolphins. And that means Manta Ray could develop playful interaction with humans that make the diving experience very rewarding. Diving in Manta Point Bali, Nusa Penida Island naturally become highly popular among divers—both locals and international divers.

Numero Uno Rule for Diving in Manta Point Bali: A Sustainable Tourism

Whenever Manta is available for tourism, you know it should be a sustainable one. In many countries including Indonesia, Manta tourism is one way to combat the issues of illegal Manta fisheries. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) believes that the gills of Manta Rays are effective remedies for many illness; from clearing a smoker’s lungs to increasing the amount of breastmilk of a mom. None of these are medically and scientifically unproven, of course, but the demand of Manta’s gills is still high as ever. Since 2014, the Indonesian government has stepped down to ban Manta trades and promote Manta tourism, estimating that one Manta Rays could make up to 12 billion rupiahs over its lifetime, far greater than what it makes when killed and sold on the TCM market. 

You can support the sustainable Manta tourism while diving in Manta Point Bali, too. You can start to bring reusable water bottles instead of buying plastic bottled waters, reducing your waste, use reef-friendly sunscreen, and not touching the manta rays when you see it. Choose to dive with local dive centre that doesn’t promote interactive Manta experiences, have certification and environmental code of conducts, and supporting eco-tourism. 

Descending to the Manta Point

Before You Go Diving in Manta Point Bali- the Guide

It’s the time you have waited for so long. You have been watching them from one of the cliff of Nusa Penida; black triangles creatures swimming around in crystal clear water all morning. Now that your boat has reached the site, it’s time to see what’s diving in Manta Point Bali would brings. Slowly, enter the water quietly and calmly. No jumping from the boat.

Don’t Disturb the Mantas

It always feel amazing when a Manta Ray passes before you, gliding graciously with their colossal fins—almost like flying in the world of blue. However, no matter how inspired you feel, never attempt to chase the Manta Ray. Again, this might stressed these poor creatures and cause a disruptive behaviour among the Mantas. You will never catch up to Manta Rays anyway, so don’t try. 

Diving with the Giants in Manta Point Bali

When you spot a Manta Ray and want to swim with them, be mindful with your movement. Keep the movement of your fins so it won’t cause splashing noise. It can scare the Manta away. Approach the Manta from their side so they’ll have a clear path ahead. Keep your distance. Do not get closer than 3 meters (10 feet)—unless the Manta approached you first! If this happens, consider yourself very, very lucky!

No Stress Komodo Dive Trip with Liveaboard Labuan Bajo

No Stress Komodo Dive Trip with Liveaboard Labuan Bajo

If you have ever heard of Flores, you would have totally heard of Liveaboard Labuan Bajo. How wouldn’t you? Liveaboard is the only vessel in Komodo that allows you to explore numerous destinations in the far-flung frontier for multiple days of trip. Labuan Bajo itself is the name of the port town as well as the launching point to Komodo National Park, your dreamed paradise. A wild one, to be exact. 

Given its raw and isolated state, navigating through Komodo National Park would be quite challenging—especially if you just rely on your previous “modern and independent” travel sorta way. What I meant here is that you cannot just Air BnB-ed your room, pack your back, and flew directly to Labuan Bajo. You need to reserve a boat. With the boat, come the tour agent, and everything would be organised by the tour agency. That means you have to temporarily lose your freedom and have your tour schedule arranged, your trip duration chosen, and just follow the guide. For travelers who are used to tailor their own trip, travelling to Komodo would feel like a little restriction. Despite the lack of freedom, however, organised liveaboard trip is actually one of the easiest, hassle free trip to do in Komodo. This is why. 

Travelling Komodo the Hard Way

Travelling Komodo the Hard Way

Of course, Liveaboard Labuan Bajo is not your only option to sail around the national park. You can always find alternatives—both on cheaper or pricier sides—which offers more independence and privacy. The obvious one would be private cruises; you rent a whole phinisi cruise and arrange your own itineraries, determine your own length of trip, and basically run your own expedition with the helps of ship’s crews. On the (very tight) budget side, you have fisherman boats. You would have all the independence privilege of a private cruise albeit having to give up facilities—even the most basic one. It would be just a boat. No cabins, no kitchen to cook your meals, no electricity, and you would sleep on thin mattress spread on the tiny boat’s floor at night. Not to mention that Komodo’s water and weather are kinda tricky to navigate without sailing experience. 

On the middle one, you have liveaboard tour. Its organised and require your submittance, but it’s actually efficient. Also, these liveaboard usually falls on medium-range budget, which are still largely affordable even for backpackers.
