4 QUALITIES HIRING MANAGERS MUST LOOK FOR IN CANDIDATES

Human Resource 101

Human Resource 101 Consulting Limited

  1. The Make it Happen attitude/Positive attitude/Grit

Having a positive attitude is very important and hiring managers must look out for attitude during the screening process. It is better to have an employee with the right attitude but without adequate skills than have an employee who is overly qualified but has a very poor attitude. When the going gets tough, when the obstacles mount, and when the resources are scarce, people with a positive attitude always find a way to make it happen. Rather than focusing on the possibility of failure—which is always a possibility—they hit the ground running. And they do it with so much creativity and motivation that they leave the mere idea of failure in the dust.

To assess the trait of grit in a candidate, I often ask, “Tell me about a time you were facing great challenge in your role or schooling.” Here’s the secret: I’m…

The Year of the Dog

The Year of the Dog
People born in 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, and 2018 are known as Dogs. They are known to be loyal and honest, amiable and kind, cautious and prudent. They do tend to come over as stubborn as they are not good at communication but they are born with a good nature and are always ready to help others.

TNR Trust

On Friday, 16 February 2018, we welcomed:

The Year of the Dog

Chinese know how to party. Chinese New Year was globally celebrated on this Friday by an explosion of sound and light, including bell ringing, lighting firecrackers and watching traditional lion dances (mind you, these are all not very dog-friendly!). 

People born in 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, and 2018 are known as Dogs. They are known to be loyal and honest, amiable and kind, cautious and prudent. They do tend to come over as stubborn as they are not good at communication but they are born with a good nature and are always ready to help others.

Pooches all over the world were being extra pampered. A nice grooming, a haircut, a little treat, … For many of us, our dog is part of our family. We include them in walks, we give them cuddles, we take them…

Can you help us reach the finish line?

The arrival of the long-awaited TNR Trust Mobile Clinic is imminent! We will be ready to tow out before the ed of the month.

In order to keep the Mobile Clinic in a good condition, we need to build a carport for it while it is parked in Nairobi between trips. To that end, we are in need of the following materials:
4 metal poles, about 3 meters high
A horizontal roof frame
Mabati sheets (= iron roof sheets) (can be second-hand)
Shade netting for the side
If you have any of the above to donate, you can send us a message or call/message Carla at 0733 739 708. Or if you want to donate money instead of building materials, the Mchanga link works brilliantly for Mpesa, Pay Pal, Stripe and credit cards:

Emotional Infidelity-Is It Wrong?

There are so many seemingly harmless ways for good people to commit emotional infidelity. It often happens through everyday activities and the ideas that we allow to influence our minds. #EmotionalInfidelity

Youths 4 Life

aid684929-v4-728px-End-an-Emotional-Affair-Step-1-Version-3Emotional Infidelity- What does it mean?
Emotional infidelity occurs when we think intimately about and crave emotional intimacy from someone other than our spouse. Imagine an actor preparing to perform in a play. She memorizes her lines, gets inside the characters head, and tries to imagine how this person would feel and act. She rehearses being that person. . .The more she’s rehearsed being that character, the sharper and more automatic her performance.

Something similar happens when we fantasize sexually or emotionally about inappropriate or sinful behavior. We are rehearsing what we think about the conversations we would have with a particular [person] if we were ever alone with him/her, when we entertain thoughts of an intimate rendezvous, or wish that a certain [person] would take special notice of us. . . When we don’t guard our minds in our relationships, we weaken our resistance before any encounter takes place.

Is Oral Sex A Sin – What Does the Bible Say?

A few days ago on twitter, there was a serious discussion about the above matter. Where in conclusion, it left a lot of confusion. This made me to ask myself, “Is Oral Sex Sin? And what does the bible says about this matter.

Couples often ask, “Is oral sex a sin?” The best place to look for answers is in the Bible. Hebrews 13:4 says, “Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.” The first point the Bible makes very clear is that sex – all types – is designed specifically for married couples. Non-married couples are not to practice premarital sex.

The Bible never indicates exactly what a husband and wife are allowed to do in their sexual relationship. However, there are some sexual principles that we can consider.

  • Mutual Consent – 1 Corinthians 7:5 says, “Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.” This verse indicates that each sexual activity should be mutually agreed upon.
  • Adultery is Sin – The Bible is very clear that any form of adultery is sin, even if both people in a marriage relationship agree to it. 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 says, “It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know God.” Adultery also includes “swapping” or adding sexual partners.
  • Viewing Pornography is a Sin – Matthew 5:28 is very clear. “But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.” Pornography viewed alone or together as a couple is sin. 1 John 2:16 says, “For everything in the world – the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does – comes not from the Father but from the world.”

Is Oral Sex A Sin – Practical Application
When answering the question “Is oral sex a sin,” it is important to remember that God created sex to be a beautiful expression of love for married couples. When the husband or the wife does not feel that sex is a “beautiful expression of love,” then changes need to be made in that couple’s sex life. Evidentially, the actions are not mutually beneficial to each person. Nothing in the Bible says that oral sex is a sin, however it may not be appropriate for every couple.

Is Oral Sex A Sin – Questions to Consider
Consider these questions when answering the question “Is oral sex a sin?”

  • Is oral sex voluntary and have both the husband and wife agreed to it?
  • Why do you want oral sex? Is it for pure sexual pleasure or is it to fulfill a sexual fantasy derived from porn?
  • Have you or your spouse been convicted by the Holy Spirit that oral sex is wrong?
  • Does oral sex edify and fulfill both you and your spouse?

While answering these questions, pray for guidance from God. He will reveal the answer to you – for your relationship.

Trust!

screenshot_2016-05-04-07-17-39-1Pilots flying through thick clouds, sometimes experience something called “Vertigo.” This means they lose their sense of whether they’re flying upwards or downwards. Some, following their untrustworthy senses, have crashed into the ground. But good pilots rely on the equipment that tells them exactly what angle they’re flying in.

In the same way, many Christians give up on faith because feelings like doubt, guilt, fear and worry overwhelm them. In those times they should trust in God’s unchanging promises and faithfulness and learn to fly…

Jesus sets us off in a direction, then as we obey him, a storm often comes and things go wrong. We feel like Jesus is doing nothing to help us ad doesn’t seem to care, but he does! Since he’s in control, he doesn’t panic. That’s why he could sleep. Our lack of trust in him makes us fearful and doubt that he really cares for us.

Why does he allows storms to come our way? He does this to develop our faith in him. Faith that is untested is not real faith! How do we grow in trust? Remind ourselves of some things:

  1. Jesus is with us.
  2. He does care
  3. And he’s made promises he’ll keep.

He has the power to change any situation, but until he does, we must trust him. If we don’t, our emotions may overwhelm us. That’s why it’s so important to hold onto promises God makes to us in his word. Promises like, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5

Emotional Infidelity-Is It Wrong?

Emotional Infidelity- What does it mean?
Emotional infidelity occurs when we think intimately about and crave emotional intimacy from someone other than our spouse. Imagine an actor preparing to perform in a play. She memorizes her lines, gets inside the characters head, and tries to imagine how this person would feel and act. She rehearses being that person. . .The more she’s rehearsed being that character, the sharper and more automatic her performance.

Something similar happens when we fantasize sexually or emotionally about inappropriate or sinful behavior. We are rehearsing what we think about the conversations we would have with a particular [person] if we were ever alone with him/her, when we entertain thoughts of an intimate rendezvous, or wish that a certain [person] would take special notice of us. . . When we don’t guard our minds in our relationships, we weaken our resistance before any encounter takes place.

Emotional infidelity often starts when you share intimate details of your life with a person other than your spouse. You may be going through a rough part of your marriage and feel like you can’t talk to your spouse, so you choose to receive intimacy from another. That person makes you feel special and that makes you feel good. You begin to open up more and more and you like the feeling you have when you are with them. You crave the emotional intimacy you receive from that person.

Before you know it, you are sharing the deepest intimate details of your marriage. What’s the harm in this? The harm comes in the separation that has now occurred between you and your spouse. You have crossed a marital boundary. God has commanded us to be faithful to our spouses. Emotional infidelity is adultery (Matthew 5:28).

Emotional Infidelity- How does it happen?
There are so many seemingly harmless ways for good people to commit emotional infidelity. It often happens through everyday activities and the ideas that we allow to influence our minds.

Consider establishing healthy boundaries in these areas:

  • Limit television viewing and avoid watching soap operas and movies that contain sexual content and extra-marital affairs.
  • Be careful where you go on the Internet. Avoid all forms of pornography. When active in chat rooms, be sure your spouse is around and keeps you accountable for your activities online.
  • Avoid pornographic billboards. Take a different route, if needed.
  • Be careful what novels you read. Many women choose not to read romance novels because they tend to compare their husband with the hero in the story and then they see that their husband doesn’t measure up.
  • Limit your intake of magazines.
  • Be on guard so you don’t develop an inappropriate relationship with someone besides your spouse, no matter how innocent you believe it to be.
  • If you need to have a business meeting with someone of the opposite sex, consider bringing along your spouse or another coworker. Avoid being alone together.
  • Accountability partners are another way of having a check and balance system. If you find you are prone to slip, ask a good friend to hold you accountable. When you feel like you are headed for trouble — call them to talk and pray together.

Emotional Infidelity- How can I keep my mind pure?
How can we keep my mind pure and avoid emotional infidelity? It’s not always the easiest thing to do since we live in a world where sex sells.

Inappropriate thoughts are bound to come creeping into our brains occasionally, but we can choose not to entertain them. We don’t have to rehearse them like the actor mentioned above. We can immediately dismiss impure thoughts and we can refuse to commit emotional infidelity.

We need to make a commitment to keep our mind drenched with pure thoughts. When we have thoughts that are inappropriate, we need to take them captive (2 Corinthians 10:5). God tells us: Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things.

We will not be tempted beyond what we can bear (1 Corinthians 10:13). God will always provide a way out.

Sexuality~Is Homosexuality Sin!

God’s timeless Word reveals His plan for humanity and His intentions for marriage and sexuality. While Scripture teaches that homosexual acts are sinful, these Bible verses aren’t about condemning homosexuals, gays, lesbians, or transgender people. Rather, read God’s loving warning and offer of grace for those who have strayed from His will for sex. We live in a fallen world with a fallen nature, but in Christ, we can be new creations.

Is homosexuality a sin? And who do we believe?
God is the ultimate and sovereign judge for sin. Homosexuality is sin by His order; it is not decided by public opinion or deceived/false clergy. Changing societies do not dictate God’s standards. Sin is defined by God for us in the Bible. It is the source for what God says is holy and righteous or sin and abomination. Hebrews 13:8 states that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever; he does not “go with the flow.”

God’s Word says that homosexuality is unnatural, a perversion, an abomination, fornication, vile affections, and a great sin against Him. He states any sexual act outside of marriage is adultery (hetro or homo sexual). Sex is to be between man and woman within marriage.

Is homosexuality a sin? What does this mean?
God’s design for natural sexual relationships is part of His plan. Homosexuality…
