Ora Group Shares 3 Ways to Build Team Spirit

At Ora Group, teamwork is just as important as independent goals. By caring about the overall glory of everyone in your office makes things run smoothly and shows that you are in their success. Nowadays, people assume they want personal glory and no one else should get it besides them. “If you’re doing the work and getting far, there’s no way you can’t have best of both. Being part of a team spirit brings a solid foundation to a company. It makes it healthy and viable,” says Obiora Shorinwa managing director of Ora Group. Leaders are a great starting point to help implement teamwork and team spirit, for example. There are other ways to have the collaboration criteria be a factor and Ora Group has come up with a few ideas we’d like to share and help.

 

Genuine Leadership

 

A company leader must know that representatives work with you and not for you. This eliminates the factor of independency a bit. “When something good happens the results will show and everyone that helped can get a reward. The primary outcome of good teamwork, comes from collaboration itself,” says Obiora Shorinwa of Ora Group.

 

Praise Often

 

Whenever a leader or business owner is proud of someone, they should praise them for their efforts on real work. If there is a critical point, then that must be done privately. Good leaders know the difference between causing embarrassment to their representatives, and that is done when you point out flaws in public. Personally offering them advice or suggestions to help next time helps them respect your character. This produces team work also.

 

Unselfish

 

For everyone to do well, there needs to be fair play and chance. Teaching representatives to look out before they leap helps build the connection with other teammates. You can’t assume everything will happen independently. However, when focus in, you’ll understand the effects of having a good team.

Ora Group Shares 3 Ways to Develop Daily Discipline

It’s always interesting to see how people manage to stay disciplined with a busy schedule. “Once you follow a plan and stay consistent, being disciplined is not as hard,” says Obiora Shorinwa, managing director of Ora Group. Whether you’re trying to accomplish a goal or finish some tasks, it’s important to stay on task and be consistent in your efforts. “Discipline to us at Ora Group means freedom, the ability to do how you want to do something in the process of achieving your goals. Discipline means to control your thoughts and help yourself achieve what you deem impossible,” says Obiora Shorinwa of Ora Group. Our representatives at Ora Group know the value of discipline, and we find these three ways very helpful to achieve it.

 

Make Clear Goals

 

What do you want from your goal? Why are you going through it? This is something not a lot of people can answer. But it’s important because once you figure it out, you can set a clear path to a goal and achieve it accurately. For example, if you want to eat healthily — implement strategies to help you achieve that.

 

No Matter What Mentality

 

Once you build a routine towards your goals, make sure that you are following it through. Many times people have a hard time sticking to a schedule. But just staying on it and following it through will prove to be worthy.

 

Commitment

 

Promising yourself to accomplish comes with a lot of dedication. “Achieving this happens with commitment. Stay true to your routine and your actions, make sure everything is following through like you want it to, and you’ll reach discipline in no time,” mentions Obiora Shorinwa of Ora Group

Ora Group Discusses 2 Strategies To Make Sure You Reach Your Potential

“Am I being too lazy at work?” “Have I progressed any further?” If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then you need to make sure you’re changing some things to actually get progress. “The important thing is that you need to understand how you can aim towards your goals more accurately. By not changing anything and being the same place as you were last year, you haven’t pushed hard enough,” says Obi Shorinwa, Managing Director of Ora Group. People tend to let various factors stop them from being productive and reaching their true potential and future. “Potential is defined as, ‘latent qualities or abilities that may be developed and lead to future success’ these qualities together will assist you to be the person who reaches their ultimate potential,” says Obi Shorinwa of Ora Group.

This is important because we believe in the success of others. In doing so we can help those out that are having a hard time figuring out what to do next. At Ora Group, we’ve come with two strategies to make sure you reach your goals and see yourself being the person that reaches their potential.

Practice Being Grateful

“When individuals don’t physically see any progress, they tend to be hard on themselves and give up,” mentions Obi Shorinwa of Ora Group. The most effective way to make sure you see your results and what you have it by jotting it down in a book or journal and remember what things you have to be grateful for. We’re very hard on ourselves, so when we do see progress, we don’t think it’s a big deal. But when we see defeat, we’re more hard on ourselves. Focusing on what you’ve done and can prove to be more major factor.

Mediate 10 Mins Everyday

Research indicates that when people discover meditation, it will change their mind about relaxation entirely. Take about 2-5 mins to sit down in a quiet place and inhale-exhale. Focus on something peaceful such as the ocean view. “Studies show that people that meditate, they have more stability with controlling their mind compared to those that do not,” says Obi Shorinwa of Ora Group.

Ora Group Attended an Admin Meeting in Chicago

Successful companies and businesses rely heavily on exceptional administrative professionals. “An admin of a company is the person that makes sure everything is running efficiently. They are skilled and are always looking for new strategies to make tasks more efficient and get responses,” says Obiora Shorinwa, Managing Director of Ora Group. Recently, Ora Group attending an exclusive administrative meeting in Chicago. We got a chance to participate in this conference and learn about how important an admin is for business. “The best admin professionals aren’t side-line supportive players, instead they add value to the team in a very significant manner. They are vital to our company’s success,” notes Obiora Shorinwa of Ora Group.

 

During this meeting, one quality struck out the most that make sense in various aspects. It’s important to have a good CEO-Admin relationship because together you can bring more to the table. Letting one do everything themselves isn’t how teamwork and a company runs. Every position has a major role to play. In the case of an admin, communication and thinking outside the box is essential. Managing directors and leaders appreciate an administrative professional’s mind for critical thinking and thinking on their feet. Every day in the business world is different. “We regularly work with various people, meet new clients and customers that want to do business with us. It’s important that our admin knows how to be that person that makes decisions with everyone on the team,” says Obiora Shorinwa of Ora Group.

 

Every day new situations arise and in the company making fast actions become necessary. In addition to being an admin that brings the company in the best light, you can also pitch in with advice and strategies to make something flow better. This will only happen once you communicate and develop a strong professional bond with your CEO. Stretching your ability as an admin and developing critical capabilities puts you in a position where you become a valuable asset. In addition to being that go-to person, you are an integral part of a business and matter as much as a CEO does.

Ora Group Shares Business/Life Lessons from The Fast and Furious Franchise

Ora Group Shares Business/Life Lessons from The Fast and Furious Franchise

 

Recently the newest movie from the Fast and Furious franchise came out. No spoilers of course, but it’s great. It’s packed with action and a great storyline as always. These movies never fail to deliver and always come through for their audience. “Who doesn’t enjoy Fast and Furious movies? I think it’s every person’s favorite whether they love cars or not. The story and characters are what keep us all interested as well,” mentions Obiora Shorinwa, Managing Director of Ora Group. We’ve also noticed that the Fast and Furious movies always aim to make sure goals are being achieved. The hustle and motivation the characters have, and their passion is what gets them to accomplish what they need to.

 

This type of mentality and hustle is what we aim for at Ora Group. There are various relationships and lessons to be obtained by individuals that are go-getters and want to achieve their dreams in life. “The Fast and Furious movies is a great example to show the type of mindset these individuals need and how we can relate them to the business world or with entrepreneurs to make sure valuable career lessons are understood,” says Obiora Shorinwa of Ora Group.

 

  1. Group Work/Teamwork. In the first Fast and Furious, we see a glimpse of Dominic and his sister, Mia. An unbreakable bond of teamwork and family. This only gets better as Brian joins in and sees how much they appreciate each other and work together. In doing so this lesson portrays that no matter what, as a company, the goal is the same: to do great things. Individuals may have their own pursuits in mind, however as a whole, we want everyone to work together and reach a common goal.
  2. Passion. Passion is a huge part in these movies. The reason why these characters do what they do is because of their passion for racing and family. They ultimately love the common goal and how much a unit they have because they achieve everything together. “No one gets left behind and this type of lesson is very valuable for those who need to understand what is takes to get what you want but not drag anyone you care about down along the way,” mentions Obiora Shorinwa of Ora Group.
  3. Leadership. Individuals in business should automatically have a leadership quality. When it comes to making decisions or when it comes to taking risks, leadership is essential to move forward. In the Fast and Furious, Dominic the essential leader and his well thought out plans are what get them going to reach the end. “His character is mixed with faith, trust and ability make him the leader type. Similarly,  business leaders should also try to incorporate these qualities in their offices and towards their workers. Dominic also knows what an individual can do and what they can’t, based off this all his plans run efficiently,” says Obiora Shorinwa of Ora Group.
  4. Win. Lastly, winning the biggest part of any goal or route you take. But it’s well thought out. Yes, complications will arise and probably compromise your plans but don’t ever stop looking at the bigger picture and overall dream. This is probably the biggest lesson entrepreneurs and business individuals can learn from these movies. Brian and Dominic, characters in the movies, never stop winning. That’s the type of attitude we need in the business world as well.

Ora Group Discusses The Importance of a Sports-Minded Mentality for Graduates

Ora Group Discusses The Importance of a Sports-Minded Mentality for Graduates

For athletes, being able to maximize their abilities and skill takes an immense amount of motivation and resilience in order to reach their goals and break their personal bests. Many times regular folks who have a hard time gaining motivation, stop trying to accomplish things because they find it hard to overcome obstacles. For example, when a basketball athlete tries to improve his/her 3-point shots, they work extremely hard to make sure those shots are as good as perfect. So when they’re in an actual game and their team needs extra points, they can come in clutch. Steph Curry wouldn’t be Steph Curry if he wasn’t behind closed doors practicing all the time! This is why athletes such as him are very successful. However, if athletes give up because they can’t seem to make their 3-points during practice, they won’t go further. That mindset or fear will stop them. That’s when you need confidence the most. Ora Group believes that the key to success for graduates is confidence and knowing that hard work sets them up for any goal.

 

Similarly, just like an athlete’s mentality to overcome any challenge and gain results, that’s the mindset graduates need to be able to overcome their fears and reach their goals. “Everyone has passion and purpose in life. As a fresh graduate, you may have an idea of where you want to go and don’t know how to implement your skills. But the important mindset to have is confidence. With confidence, drive and resilience anything is possible and it’ll set a great impression for any interview or company superior you meet. Any goal can be accomplished,” mentions Obi Shorinwa, Managing Director of Ora Group. It’s a given that if an individual/recent graduate has the drive to be successful they already triggered their athlete’s mentality.

 

Ora Group strongly encourages new graduates to maintain a strong sense of motivation and purpose. “The ability to establish this foundation in one’s mind is what makes desires and determination stronger,” mentions Obi Shorinwa of Ora Group. To be the best competitor out there in the job world, confidence combined with drive is everything. It ensures that you maximize your ability towards any goal. This type of mindset will impact anything you do and influence everything around you. It’s great to be aware of because not many people are aware that they are capable of great things. Being able to work hard, practice, improve your skills, have confidence establishes a purpose and that’s what sets apart competitive minded individuals apart.

Ora Group Reviews 3 Things Great Leaders Do Everyday

Ora Group Reviews 3 Things Great Leaders Do Everyday

Ora Group prides itself on going the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction. We have a high success rate and our personal touch sets us apart from the competition. We make sure that we are leaders in our business. “Our ability to listen, identify and execute exactly what the customer wants is an additional trait that puts us at the top of our industry,” says Obi Shorinwa, Director of Ora Group. We also make sure we are implementing leadership qualities through the workplace environment. So what exactly do great leaders do everyday and how do they make the workplace better or more productive? To shape a successful workplace environment, Ora Group believes that a company leader should utilize positive tools to help their representatives each and everyday. As a result, the workers become engaged, productive, and more than able to do daily tasks very efficiently.

Here are 3 ways to improve or become the leader your business partners will look up to:

  1. Praise your workers often. The best leaders make an effort you openly praise a worker for their job well done. For example, The Gallup Organization surveyed more than 4 million workers and they concluded that individuals who receive regular recognition from company leaders showed an increase in individual productivity. As well as, received higher loyalty and satisfaction scores from customers.
  2. Communicate with your workers by laying out tasks. Most times an individual at work might not know what the specific daily tasks are, they end up falling behind in the crowd. But a great leader notices this, and guides them, explains their task, or lays it out for them to follow along. This makes sure everyone on the team is doing their part and are on the same page.
  3. Develop a positive workplace environment. Frequent motivation and positivity in the workplace are known to boost performance. “Great company leaders ensure that talent is growing and the right motivation is being portrayed for representatives to reach their highest potential,” says Obi Shorinwa, Director of Ora Group.

These key component that great leaders practice everyday helps them understand what the team and workers needs. Being aware of everyone’s strengths and talents make the workplace productive, creative, motivated, and influential. After all, Ronald Reagan said, “The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.”

Ora Group Explain the Habits that Every Entrepreneur should Embrace.

Ora Group Explain the Habits that Every Entrepreneur should Embrace.

There are undoubtedly many different pathways to success for today’s new entrepreneurs, but some similarities exist along all routes. In order to be successful, productivity is key. In addition to this, a long-term vision, hard work and focus are key concepts that any wealthy individual, CEO or leading industry leader will describe as being mandatory. As a variety of new competitors emerge in the economy of the 21st century, it is important to learn from those who have been successful. Here, Ora Group look at the key habits of successful and wealthy entrepreneurs, many of which overlap with strategies the company has already employed.

Perhaps the most common self-reported attribute among the truly successful relates to the amount of information and news absorbed each day. Obiora Shorinwa, Director of Ora Group, explained why he makes sure to spend at least 30 minutes each day reading. “There is an entire industry out there that is constantly in flux, adopting new ideas and finding out about strategies that do not work. I want to be aware of this so that I can save my firm time and investment from making bad decisions”, he reported. Whether it is industry analysis or a broader absorption of information, the common denominator among successful individuals is a desire to learn more.

Networking is another valuable component that many successful entrepreneurs admit to doing. Even well-established marketing brands like Ora Group understand that there is a need to maintain relationships while building new ones constantly. Obiora Shorinwa and others spend at least five hours each month networking with new and old connections alike, helping to keep people aware of the brand and ensuring that new pathways to prosperity are kept open.

Another commonly-reported habit of successful people revolves around when the day begins. Most workaholics sleep less than the average person – this is almost required when starting a brand from scratch – but it is the productivity before work that makes or breaks the likelihood of success. By getting up three hours before work – whether that be to read, exercise or handle personal matters – the mind and body both will be ready to get into full-swing once the work day begins. Nearly half of all wealthy individuals report doing this, as opposed to only three percent of the working poor.

Ora Group and many other marketing firms are following the habits and tendencies of the world’s most successful people, in order to provide more prosperity for their brands and themselves. As more marketing firms realize these habits help individuals to be more productive, more are destined to embrace these strategies in order to be equally successful.
