¡Ellos Piensan Que siempre tienen la razón!

Entonces, ¿cómo debemos tratar con ellos?
En todas las organizaciones, es normal encontrarse con conflictos, especialmente cuando se trata de tomar decisiones. Los conflictos son BENEFICIOSOS cuando son conflictos saludables.

Los conflictos dejan de ser saludables cuando un colega comienza a jugar la carta “Siempre tengo la razón”.

Entonces, ¿qué debe hacer cuando tiene un colega, jefe o empleado que actúa como si siempre tuviera la razón y, por lo tanto, no está dispuesto a escuchar a los demás?

Este artículo de Harvard Business Review lo resume muy bien.

¡No luches fuego con fuego!

Si bien es importante hablar de esto, ¡no lo hagas mientras estás en una reunión con un objetivo diferente! En cambio, programe una sesión para discutir su preocupación.

Evalúa tu organización.

Su cultura podría contribuir a fomentar este comportamiento. Haga que sea obligatorio que los colegas asistan a reuniones preparados con pros y contras. Pedirles a todos que contribuyan disminuirá la actitud defensiva y la necesidad de imponer opiniones.

Reduzca la velocidad y escuche.

Algunos piensan que escuchar solo alentará a esa persona a pensar que él o ella está en lo correcto aún más. ¡No es verdad! Cuando demuestras que eres un buen oyente, estableces confianza. Al hacerlo, el mismo colega puede sentirse cómodo a tu alrededor y derribar sus escudos defensivos.

Realmente no hay una forma de eliminar este comportamiento, pero estos son tres pasos sólidos que puede tomar para disminuir sus efectos negativos.

Remote SCVMM console stop working

Our UCP 4000 environment was working as expected and all the sudden I lost access from my remote terminal to the SCVMM server. I login to the server and everything was working without a problem. So I decided to do a little troubleshooting.

 

1. Check the workstation VM. – Everything was working as expected.

2. Check firewall – Everything was working as expected no changes.

 

So what could be the problem…..

 

Well, as you may know Microsoft releases updates to their products every month. This past month there was an update to the Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager console. And this stop all communication to between the client and the server that is managing our UCP 4000.

 

How did I found out this.

 

1. Check the version of the SCVMM console on the SCVMM server. Right click C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012 R2\Virtual Machine Manager\Bin\VmmAdminUI.exe

SCVMMConError1

2. Compare the version of the SCVMM console in the remote PC. They are different.

SCVMMConError2

SCVMM will not allow connection when the console and the server are in different versions.

 

How do you fix it?

1. Go to Control Panel –>Programs –> Programs and Features –> Installed updates.

2. Look for an update that include System Center or Virtual Machine Manger in the name. All updates must be applied to the server first then the client.

SCVMMConError3

After you remove the update you can connect back to your SCVMM console and manage your UCP environment.

Embedding YouTube Videos With Captions

YouTube is one of the largest video sharing sites in the world. One of their great features is that a video can have captions or subtitles added to it. If you want to embed a video with subtitles here is the code that you will need.

1. You need the YouTube Link Address to embed. Example: “https://www.youtube.com/embed/i5Q02YX2VTw”

2. Then you need to add the following line to the URL to make your video play the subtitles automatically. “?version=3&amp;hl=pt&amp;&cc_load_policy=1”

3. After you have your complete URL it will look something like this one. Then embed it to your website as usual. “https://www.youtube.com/embed/i5Q02YX2VTw?version=3&hl=pt&&cc_load_policy=1”

Note: Facebook will not play the captions.
