8 Morning Habits of High Performers

  • September 29, 2020

“Some people dream of success, while other people get up every morning and make it happen.” — Wayne Huizenga

I really appreciate that quote. I truly believe your morning habits set the stage for the remainder of the day. For example, if you keep hitting snooze until you realize that you’re running late, how do you think the rest of your day will be? You all “get it.” You all “know.” But, do you DO the actions that support the habits you know to be correct?

TimeOP.comTimeOP stands as a business intelligence tool that will let any team leader or manager understand the actual degree of involvement of his subordinates in real time, and determine the right way to keep that up (if it is satisfactory) or begin making adjustments (if it is not).

TimeOP can serve all the performance indicators a manager would need to learn in which senses his team still has some way to go, and the whole process is made simpler by the creation (and delivery) of reports that measure real time activity. Plus, sentiment analysis can also be performed. All the variables that have a weight on the way someone works are given equal projection, then.

And the best thing about TimeOP might as well be that there is almost no data to be inputted.

  • March 22, 2010

eXaudios.comeXaudios is a company that hails from Israel, and whose new product has begun to attract the attention of many. Named MagInify, we can term it a software whereby the mood and disposition of any person who is making a call can be determined.

This technology can be used in two main areas: contact centers and job interviews. In the first case, the software makes for spending less time on non-interested customers and (consequently) focusing on these deals that can effectively be closed. In the second case, the degree of motivation and involvement of a candidate towards a specific job can be analyzed, and his/her suitability for the position in question can be more easily determined. That would reduce recruitment mistakes significantly, as any person’s loyalty and ability to work as part of a team could be figured out in advance.

In actuality, there are as many more uses for a technology like this one as you could imagine. For example, law enforcement agencies could use it as part of investigations as a lie detectors substitute. And the fact that the system is effective from the first interaction (EG, no historic voice data is required to get going) certainly tip the scales in its favor.
