Let's discover our full potential

Ambitious professionals often spend a substantial amount of time thinking about strategies that will help them achieve greater levels of success. They strive for a more impressive job title, higher compensation, and responsibility for more sizable revenues, profits, and numbers of employees. Their definitions of success are often heavily influenced by family, friends, and colleagues. Maslow's hierary of needs stated that people are motivated to achieve certain needs and that some needs take precedence over others.Our most basic need is for physical survival, and this will be the first thing that motivates our behavior. Once that level is fulfilled the next level up is what motivates us, and so on.1. Physiological needs - these are biological requirements for human survival, e.g. air, food, drink, shelter, clothing, warmth, sex, sleep.If these needs are not satisfied the human body cannot function optimally. Maslow considered physiological needs the most important as all the other needs become secondary until these needs are met.2. Safety needs - Once an individual’s physiological needs are satisfied, the needs for security and safety become salient. People want to experience order, predictability and control in their lives. These needs can be fulfilled by the family and society (e.g. police, schools, business and medical care).For example, emotional security, financial security (e.g. employment, social welfare), law and order, freedom from fear, social stability, property, health and wellbeing (e.g. safety against accidents and injury).3. Love and belongingness needs - after physiological and safety needs have been fulfilled, the third level of human needs is social and involves feelings of belongingness. The need for interpersonal relationships motivates behaviorExamples include friendship, intimacy, trust, and acceptance, receiving and giving affection and love. Affiliating, being part of a group (family, friends, work).4. Esteem needs are the fourth level in Maslow’s hierarchy - which Maslow classified into two categories: (i) esteem for oneself (dignity, achievement, mastery, independence) and (ii) the desire for reputation or respect from others (e.g., status, prestige).Maslow indicated that the need for respect or reputation is most important for children and adolescents and precedes real self-esteem or dignity.5. Self-actualization needs refer to the realization of a person's potential, self-fulfillment, seeking personal growth and peak experiences. Maslow describes this level as the desire to accomplish everything that one can, to become the most that one can be. Characteristics of self-actualizers:1. They perceive reality efficiently and can tolerate uncertainty;2. Accept themselves and others for what they are;3. Spontaneous in thought and action;4. Problem-centered (not self-centered);5. Unusual sense of humor;6. Able to look at life objectively;7. Highly creative;8. Resistant to enculturation, but not purposely unconventional;9. Concerned for the welfare of humanity;10. Capable of deep appreciation of basic life-experience;11. Establish deep satisfying interpersonal relationships with a few people;12. Peak experiences;13. Need for privacy;14. Democratic attitudes;15. Strong moral/ethical standards..

Last 10 years of amazing experience while working for those poor tribal people in India

The common objective of all social entrepreneurship initiatives involves the welfare of the community only difference being the legal structure as registered during initial set-up.Various forms of social entrepreneurship are listed below :Non-profit organizationCo-operative societiesSocial enterpriseCommunity projectSpecial purpose businessToday's generation is more or less concerned in bringing positive change in society. We have been taught that finding a career which benefit society is more important than merely hankering after money. That's how professionals join in social Enterprises to be the catalyst in bringing change.Muhammad yunus ; the social entrepreneur, banker, economist who was awarded the Nobel Peace prize for founding the gramin Bank and pioneering the concepts of microcredit and microfinance. He said that poverty is an artificial creation. It doesn't belong to human civilization and we can change that. We can make people come out of poverty. The only thing we have to do is to redesign our institutions and policies.A social enterprise is an organisation that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in financial, social and environmental well being ; this may include maximizing social impact alongside profits for shareholders.Social enterprises have both business goals and social goals. As those social goals are embedded in their objectives, which differentiates them from other organisations and companies.The main purpose of a social Enterprise is to promote, encourage and make social change. Social enterprises are businesses created to give a social purpose in financially sustainable way. N.B. A pic from the website of United NationsSocial enterprises can provide income generation opportunities that meet up the basic needs of people who live in poverty. They are sustainable in the long run & income from sales is reinvested in their mission. They do not depend on philanthropy except in the beginning to set-up and can sustain themselves for long time unless some untoward incidents occur like this Covid-19 pandemic. These models can be expanded or replicated to those impoverished communities as per the feasibility to generate more impact.Social Enterprises are working from many years but due to globalization and intense competition ; need to be managed very efficiently.The essential difference between social Enterprises and traditional business is that social Enterprises work on meeting up both the financial & social objectives.Therefore social Enterprises seek to implement innovative and creative ideas to solve large scale social problems in a sustainable way.Social Enterprise faces same issues that any traditional business faces in its growth and operations. Social Enterprises also face unique challenges in delivering the social value, social returns or social impact of the Enterprise in addition to commercial value.There are plethora of challenges that social Enterprises are facing---1.Social enterprises often face identity crisis in classifying either as non profit or for-profit entity.Many social Enterprises encounter difficulties in striking the right balance between diversifying into income generating activities and maintaining the core social ethos.It comes as no surprise, according to a study by Intellicap, 80% Indian social enterprises structure themselves as for-profit private limited companies (PLC). Social enterprise is also about finding both social process & social purpose (Holy Grail)2. Governance challenges : The governing board in a social Enterprise comprises of elected/selected shareholders primarily who are basically the primary business owners. In many instances they neither educate nor update themselves regarding the ongoing business challenges. Therefore they solely depend on the operation system of that enterprise. They hardly recognise themselves as the head/custodian of an Enterprise.
