The winning proposal, deemed “the most compelling” by jury for its rotating stacks of sculptural, stone-clad cubes that rise up to 150 meters, is expected to be Berlin’s tallest skyscraper and Germany’s tallest residential tower. “Gehry’s design is strong in visual expression and introduces an unusually eccentric, new pattern for this location. Nevertheless, the façade radiates agreeable tranquility. In addition, the design blends well with the neighborhood and conveys all aspects of metropolitan living,” commented Regula Lüscher, Senate Building Director.The majority of the Hines-developed, 500,000 square foot structure will be dedicated to a mixture of apartments and penthouses, however a portion of the tower will be used as a hotel. This will be Gehry’s third project with the real estate giant, as the pair also collaborated on the Hines’ DZ Bank in Berlin and the New World Center in Miami Beach, Florida.Save this picture!© Gehry Partners, Courtesy of HinesGehry’s design is currently on view alongside the competition’s second and third place proposal, by Kleihues + Kleihues Gesellschaft von Architekten mbH and Barkow Leibinger Gesellschaft von Architekten mbH, in a public exhibit at the annex to the Lichthof at Köllnischer Park 3, 10179 Berlin, through February 12, 2014.

Communication through body language has been going on for over a million years but has only been studied in the past 20 years. It is predicted, however, that its impact on communication will make it part of formal education. Here we interpret a few of the common signals and give practical advice on dealing with difficult situations• A person who rubs the back of their neck when lying usually avoids your gaze and looks down. This gesture is also used as a signal of frustration or anger and when this is the case the hand slaps the back of the neck first and then begins to rub the neck. If, for instance, you asked an employee to do a task and they had forgotten, when mentioned, they signal their forgetfulness by slapping their forehead or the back of the neck. If they slap their forehead they signal that they are not intimidated by you having mentioned their forgetfulness, but when they slap the back of their neck they non-verbally tell you that you are literally a pain in the neck for pointing out their error.• One of the most valuable gestures a negotiator can learn to recognise is seated readiness. Gestures that signal a desire to end a conversation or encounter are leaning forward with both hands on both knees or leaning forward with both hands gripping the chair. Should either of these occur during a conversation it could be wise to take the lead and terminate it. This allows you to maintain the psychological advantage and to keep the control.• This is a classic deceit cluster. As he rubs his eye he looks away towards the floor and both eyebrows are raised to the disbelief position. His head is turned away and down, showing a negative attitude. He also has an insincere, tight-lipped smile.• Inconsistency of gestures is plain here. The man is smiling confidently as he crosses the room, but one hand has crossed his body to play with his watch and form a partial arm barrier. This shows he is unsure of himself and/or his circumstances.• As an HR manager you are about to counsel an employee whose work performance has been unsatisfactory and erratic. To achieve this objective you will need to use direct questions that require direct answers and may put the employee under pressure. At times you will also need to show the employee you understand their feelings and even occasionally agree with their thoughts and actions. How can you convey these attitudes using body formations?Leaving aside interview and questioning techniques, consider the following scene. The counselling session is in your office and, as a manager, you can move from behind the desk to your employee’s side of the desk while maintaining unspoken control.There are three main angle formations that can be used:• The open triangle formation lends an informal relaxed attitude to the meeting and is a good position in which to open a counselling session. You can show non-verbal agreement with the employee from this position by copying his movements and gestures. Both torsos point to a third mutual point to form a triangle – this can show mutual agreement.• By turning your chair to point your body directly at the employee you are non verbally telling him that you want direct answers to your questions. Combine this position with the business gaze and reduced body and facial gestures and your subject will feel tremendous non-verbal pressure. If, for example, after you have asked them a question, they rub their eye and mouth and look away when they answer, swing your chair to point directly at them and say, “Are you sure about that?” This simple movement exerts non-verbal pressure on them and can force them to tell the truth.• When you position your body at a right angle away from your subject, you take the pressure off the interview. This is an excellent position from which to ask delicate or embarrassing questions, encouraging more open answers without applying pressure.ContactsPoses and annotations taken from Body Language: How to Read Other’s Thoughts by their Gestures, by Allan Pease.

Measurement of stress levels may be flawedOn 1 Feb 2002 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article How organisations measure stress levels and their impact on the health ofworkers may be flawed, a study commissioned by the HSE has found. The review, the first ever carried out by the HSE on measures of workplacestressors, found the amount and quality of evidence on different measures waslimited. There was only sufficient evidence available to provide a detailedanalysis of five of the 25 common stress measures used in UK organisations. Even where good evidence was available, it tended to be inconsistent andunreliable and there was an almost complete lack of evidence on theirpredictive power. This, said the team from the Institute for Employment Studies and BirkbeckCollege, London, was particularly worrying because this was the main purpose ofsuch measures. It warned that stress measures therefore may not be accurately measuring theaspects of the work environment that lead to ill-health. This meant that organisations could be focusing on changing aspects of theworkplace that were not necessarily harmful and failing accurately to diagnosereal stresses. More information was needed on the reliability and validity of existingstress measures, the study, A critical review of psychological hazard measures,concluded. www.hse.gov.uk Related posts:No related photos.
Previous Article Next Article LettersOn 6 Aug 2002 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. This week’s LettersE-mails should be monitored An organisation should have the right to protect its reputation and itselffrom litigation through staff monitoring (News, 16 July). In the future, will the courts accept that libellous remarks, or othere-abuse, cannot be attributed to the company the mail has been sent from, asthe monitoring code has removed their right to avoid this happening? And there are other issues that are not being discussed, such as resourcesand security threats. Must organisations not monitor for executable files (often virus carriers),software (could be unlicensed), MP3 files (often infringing copyright), andlarge picture files? All of these could present threats to a network, causeextreme congestion and use vital bandwidth affecting the normal running of abusiness network. Anyone who deals with e-mail systems will be aware of the growth of largefile transfers via e-mail and that these are all too often either virusinfected, music files or audible/video ‘jokes’. Companies must be allowed to protect their networks and computer resources.I work in the front line of the e-mail world and I’ve had all these issues todeal with – if the guidelines remain as they are, companies will pay dearly asmany people cannot be trusted to adhere to the rules. Rob Jinman IT manager, Via e-mail Board must be actively involved I was interested in your articles on boardroom HR (News, 23 July),especially in the light of my recent appointment to the board of 24sevenVending. In my experience, the key to boardroom status lies in being activelyinvolved in every part of the business, from the factory floor to theboardroom. This includes taking on other areas of responsibility not strictlywithin the traditional realm of HR. I think a recent comment by our chairman on the monthly HR board paper showshow HR can gain influence. “I always look forward to reading your report –it tells me what’s actually going on in the business and links what we know weare trying to achieve to meet customer needs to what people are thinking anddoing in the business to help us achieve our goals,” he said. Over the past two or three years, my company has gone through periods ofrapid growth, followed by consolidation. We could not have done this withoutthe board being aware of how these changes affect the people in our business,especially in such a labour intensive market. Ann Burton HR director, 24seven Vending Defending the HR professionIt is not often that an article disturbs my breakfast; however,‘Would the real HR staff please stand up’ (Comment, 23 July) had me on my feet,toast flying.There has been a trail of writers ready to have a condemnatorystab at a function that has battled to change its image and role withinbusiness. Are we making an impact? Should we be called HR or personnel?Are we sufficiently qualified to breathe the same air as those elevated to theboard? The debate goes on, while HR and personnel managers alike do their bestto deliver a service that supports the business needs of their organisation. This is often not fully supported by either senior or linemanagement, and now seemingly not by their colleagues in the profession either.Paul Kearns’ experience of HR and personnel people clearlydiffers from mine. I believe the majority of those practising share a desire todo the best for their organisation, and will rise to the challenge, withsupport. Real HR people seek to develop, stretch and motivate those aroundthem, not damn them for their current status. So, if his views are symptomatic of the ‘real’ HR populace,count me out. In fact, count me outanyway, because I just left my group HR manager position of seven years feelingpretty confident, strategically involved and making no excuses for choosing tomove into coaching. Dorothy Smith, MA, MCIPD, BeaconsfieldHow do you measure up?With reference to Paul Kearns’ comment pieces for PersonnelToday. I would be interested to know how he measures the impact of what hedoes, and how is he performing against these measures?Joanne MilesSouthampton Related posts:No related photos.

It should be kept unless and until a new system is in place that provides landlords with the same level of certainty. The other routes currently available for repossessing properties do not meet this test.”Shamplina is urging all letting agents to complete the government’s consultation survey and have their say about ‘one of the biggest reforms of the private rental market’ for generations.paul shampllina Landlord Action August 2, 2019Nigel LewisOne commentJulian Blackmore, BNE BNE 2nd August 2019 at 9:36 amSince when has the government ever taken any notice of consultees? They just go through the process, ignore the result and continue with their one size fits all approach to people pleasing potential voters.
