How a colleague accidentally tripped me and revealed my mental issues?

The human physiology and biological functioning are no less than a wonder. Anger management comes in the domain of emotional intelligence. Although like all living organisms the major structure for the human body and biological functioning is the same, yet each is a unique combination of different characteristics. It is one of the superiority of humanity that each and every member of this regime is highly identical as well as utterly unique at the same time.

Many of you may be thinking that how being equal and unique is possible at the same time. If we look at the internal body function and biological facts the major outline or structure, upon which the average human body system is built, remains almost same for all people around the world. But when you start depicting the uniqueness, the list is endless. The genetic makeup and the pattern of characteristics for every individual is a unique set for millions of humans around the world.

This uniqueness is more like part of an individual’s personality. That is why human beings differ from one another; even the children of same parents vary with another. This is where character comes into play. Not all individuals have the same combination for every trait and with different levels of multiple features every person makes up a unique personality. There can be similarities between the two persons who rank the same on an individual level for a trait.

These facts become more important when the study subject become the humans. This is why sociologists and psychologists claim that experimenting in humans is the most difficult of all. It is because based on their intelligence, wisdom, experience and internal feedback systems humans have the capacity to alter and change their responses, for the same stimuli. The answers may vary depending upon the analysis of the surrounding. The phenomenon if personality is widely being considered in the area of human resource management. It is because every organisation is thriving to achieve the best possible talent for it. In this quest, they want to analyse each and every individual of their team to possess the best possible traits, which can not only affect the organisation’s growth but will also help the person to grow emotionally and mentally. It is because the well-being of employees is ultimately depicted in the balance sheet figures of a person. I came to know about all this while I was reading a human resource blog. But how my interest developed in reading this material. It is after a diagnostic incident which made me rise that I need a through working on my personality and behaviour. Its importance becomes twofold when you are working in a large company and especially on group projects.

A few months back our company audit was in progress. Everyone in the office was quite busy, or you can say fatigued. The review team was asking for records and files, and everybody was dead busy. I was working on my system when one of my colleagues in a rush to open the cupboard got tripped over me. I was having a coffee cup by my side, and it all spilt over my table.

Although he was not intentional in doing so yet, I became too furious. My voice crossed the limits and all of the colleagues gathered. My manager came, with whom there was a team member of the audit committee. They handled the situation and calmed me down. After few minutes of this incident when I sat again on my personal computer I felt embarrassed. I surely overreacted. Although it was not his fault yet he was apologising and should not have yelled at him. But then I realised that the stress of audit along with work pressure mixed up to make me behave in this way. My anger crossed the limit, and there came a stage where I let it spill out as it is. I was unable to “manage” myself.

The audit committee penned certain amendments as well improvements. The HR head suggested for an anger management at workplace caring for r all those who are believed to be angrier at work. For me and many other it seemed insulting in the start, but again we realised that we were unable to “manage” our anger. Anger is a temporary state of mind in which a person became furious. Their reaction to this mental state can be in the form of the scream, loud voice or even beating. All these are unacceptable behaviours at work. But these are the realities of human nature which the experts of human resource management have accepted. Now the modern notion of anger management state that anger is a temporary phase of mind and people can be made to deal with this state of mind through different drills and activities. Anger is not a trait; it is just the absence of control. But the human body is based on the excellent ability of flexibility so people can be easily made to manage this state if mind.

It is a trait of an individual who can understand and depict one’s emotions, moods, and feelings. Managing the emotions is an essential part needed at the workplace. It is because a single employee will be involved with so many other people around that his behaviours can affect others. I have also undergone through the whole practice of anger management, and now after just a few months I feel much improvement. Not only me, but my colleagues have also mentioned this visible change.

Anger management must be taken as an essential tool for humans because they are social creatures. None of us can live in isolation. We cannot leave those alone, who become angry too quick. All we can do is to manage this through effective anger management.

How To Make Your Warehouse Storage More Efficient?

Warehouse storage is more than just putting boxes on shelves. Efficient storage is a key element of successful business. Movement of product slows down when you consider all of the different factors involved. You have various employees, workloads, scheduling conflicts, customers as well as vendors, and they all need access to your stock. You should consider to equip some systems, such as cantilever racking systems, to improve the efficiency of your warehouse storage.

All of these factors can only be controlled to a point. And attempting to fix them all at the same time is not a feasible option. The most effective approach is to focus your attention on one of these factors. Which of these factors can you have the most control over; and which of these factors influences the others the most?

Storage

When you can quickly locate materials, the elements above are very likely to fit into one another better and make your total operation run more smoothly. So, if proper storage is the answer, how can you maximize your current warehouse situation?

Your storage needs are likely different from the needs of other companies. But that does not mean that you can’t benefit from making some changes to your warehouse layout. But where do you begin to make these changes?

 

How Much Space Do I Actually Have In My Warehouse?

When you know exactly the amount of space you have in your warehouse, you will be better able to gauge how much product you can store in there

  • Measure your space

  • Determine the warehouse elements that cannot be moved: columns, walls, doors, clearances

  • Which product is stored for longer and which product is handled more often

  • Where do you need clear pathways in your warehouse?

  • Consider where current or future offices, docks, staging, holding and inspection areas are located

If your product exceeds your space, don’t automatically expand to a separate building. Think outside your current shelves, but still inside your current warehouse space

  • Think about compressing and narrowing your current shelving

What Is Holding Back Your Efficiency?

The flow of your product: when it is coming in, while it is in inventory, and when it gets moved out, is the true test to whether you are using your warehouse storage to its fullest capabilities. This efficiency or lack thereof is measured through the following:

  • Having the right products

  • Having the right products when they are needed the most

  • Having the right products at any time that they are needed, and in whatever quantities are desired

  • Having too much space and filling that space with inventory might seem to be a positive, but it can slow down your efficiency

What Are My Options For Warehouse Storage?

When you know how much you need to store, and you know your current storage situation, the next step is to consider your options. The problem with simply stocking your warehouse is that any empty space is likely to fill up just because there is perceived room.

Once that space is gone, it might seem easier to expand out to another building rather than reorganize your current one. This is where mezzanine flooring is your solution.

Expansion

Expansion is expensive. This is a plain and simple fact. Expanding might only be a temporary fix too, because it does not solve the current warehouse situation, just creates a new one. Mezzanine flooring is more efficient and economical.

Mezzanine Flooring

Mezzanine flooring utilizes your current space and expands upon it. It uses all of the wasted space both above and/or below your shelves, aisles, and the other structures you currently have in your warehouse. Your storing possibilities greatly expand when you can install mezzanine flooring to create additional levels. Another benefit is that these levels are installed without all of the usual construction problems. Your building can continue operations while the structures are put into place.

Mezzanine Flooring Can Solve A Myriad Of Issues

  • I have too much product but I need all of it

You want to be able to have your product exactly when people need it, but it takes forever to fulfil orders from your warehouse. Your pallets are everywhere, your dock areas are cluttered and product is mixed in with the wrong product. You even have safety hazards with boxes and pallets placed wherever there is room.

Solution: a mezzanine flooring system would create another level above all of this mess and give you room to move this product, storage boxes and pallets to their rightful places.

  • Bad warehouse design

If you have differing ceiling levels in your warehouse, you ignore them because they don’t automatically fit your main product. Or, you could have aisles that are too wide.

Solution: get rid of your aisles and build up with mezzanine flooring.

What Mezzanine Flooring Can Achieve For Your Warehouse Storage

Installing mezzanine flooring allows you to use your current space more efficiently and move your product more efficiently. Your products are not the only costs you have in regards to storage. Your equipment, labor, operations and more must always be factored in. That is why when you are deciding on how to expand your storage, you can choose the economical way of mezzanine flooring. It reduces the need for expansion, which can cost a lot more.

Consider a mezzanine flooring system for your warehouse today. These free-standing structures can be moved to different locations in your warehouse. More permanent solutions for placement are also available. These materials include: concrete, steel and wood.

Get Access To Your Product Faster

Mezzanine flooring gives you access to all of your wasted warehouse space. Your product can be built faster and your overall logistics will be improved.

Your warehouse is more than just a space for material and product. Efficient storage of your product is critical to success. Product movement in and out of your warehouse is considerably slowed down when you have poor organization. All of the different factors that are dealt with on a daily basis contribute to this slow-down.

You can’t fix them all at once, so start with the most basic one and the most important: storage redesign. And storage redesign begins with a mezzanine flooring system.
