The below is a guest blog by J. Israel Greene, Certified Speaker, Leadership Teacher & Coach
What are the essential drivers of success? Countless books have been written about this very question: Stephen R. Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, Tony Robbins’ Awaken the Giant Within. The list goes on and on.
Make no mistake, these are all great resources – especially if you are a growth junky like myself. But what if you could narrow the success equation down to four key areas that allowed you to ask the right questions at the right time to produce explosive results? Imagine if it were all that simple?
Well, I’m here to tell you that it is.
As I mentioned, there are four key areas essential to success. For this post, the component I want to drill down on is equipping: to prepare someone mentally for a particular situation or task. This is a term you may have heard tossed around, but very few actually execute on. Many will think why do I need to equip others? I can just get it done on my own and make sure it’s done right the first time.
Here’s the problem with such thinking: trying to do everything on your own will inevitably lead to frustration and, worse, limitation. If you want to reach your potential and build something of lasting value, then you need to become a team player. In the long run, the ability to delegate responsibility and lend authority to potential leaders will result in stronger, more confident teams and sustained growth.
But giving up control can be uncomfortable. Here are a few quick tips to help you become fluent in equipping.
Adopt a team mindset. You must decide that it is worth the effort to invest in people. Once you have made this commitment, then gather the best talent possible and sacrifice. Yes, sacrifice. Sacrifice your personal productivity to add value to each team member. As your employees grow stronger, you will find that the value is going to multiply by having an entire team being able to go where you were unable to go solo.
Remember the Law of Proximity. Those closest to the leader will determine their level of effectiveness. As a leader, your goal isn’t to attract a crowd, but to develop future leaders who are able to advance the vision. Those worth equipping are the ones willing to carry the load with you and demonstrate their willingness by sharing ideas, providing feedback, and acting as the voice of reason during turbulent times. Understand who you need to invest more in.
Help others fulfill their potential. Creating a growth environment and positioning people in the right place is essential to individual and team success. Greatness happens only when all of the players on the team are in roles, which maximize their respective talents, skills, and experiences. This requires that you know the members on your team, and give them tools and resources to help reach their potential. An inspiring leader pays attention to the unique dreams of their team members – and then helps nurture and refine their strengths to get them closer to reaching those dreams.
While equipping is one of the fastest ways to fuel growth, make your mark as a leader, and inspire your team, it’s just one part of the formula.
I would love for you to join me as I partner with Zoho CRM to present How to be a REAL Success, a John Maxwell program, where I will share the other three key- components of being a success.

Managing your work without setting priorities is like shooting randomly and calling whatever you hit ‘The Target’. – Peter Turla, president of the National Management Institute.
In our last blog post, we saw how Mark, a 22-year-old fashion revolutionary, gained a 360° perspective on his project data using Zoho Projects Advanced Analytics. Now let’s look at how Mark set up a powerful Task Analytics dashboard that helps him manage and execute his tasks more effectively.
Mark customized the Task Analytics dashboard from what was offered by Zoho Reports to suit his specific needs. A single glance at this now gives him a complete overview of the tasks taken up this month, target versus completed, those on high priority, top/bottom 5 owners and much more.
*Scroll down or click to view the full dashboard.
These insights help Mark keep track of the progress, focus on high priority tasks, and identify areas that need attention. Now let’s look at a few reports that Mark used to figure this out.
1. Tasks Completed vs Target of the Month
This chart displays the total number of tasks completed versus the target to be achieved. The red line denotes the target and the green line denotes the tasks that are actually completed. If the green line falls below the red line then it means that the team is behind the target, if it falls above the red line then the team is ahead of the schedule.
Mark uses this report to quickly check up on the progress and better plan for the upcoming month.
2. Task Overdue Analytics
Overdue by Owners
This report displays the name of the owner, the total number of tasks assigned to him, those that are closed, overdue, delayed, the average delay in days, and the overdue percentage.
This helps him and his other managers monitor the overdue tasks and push employees towards completing them.
Top 10 Delayed Tasks
This pivot displays the top 10 delayed tasks. It shows the task name, owner, project name and the delay in days.
This not only enables Mark to view the tasks that most needs his attention but also shows the total number of days it is behind. In a fashion industry, where the trends change so quickly every delay is a loss, either in terms of money or time. Thanks to this pivot, Mark is now able to keep a tab on it.
3. Team Performance
Task Progress by Owners
This ‘Task Progress by Owners’ pivot displays the name of the owner and the total number of tasks, as well as the count of those closed, open and upcoming. Mark and his project managers can easily view what each member is assigned or working on by clicking the numbers adjacent to the owner’s name.
This report helps Mark and his team better manage resources and prioritize the tasks people are working on.
Top and Bottom 5 Owners
This bar chart displays the owners with the most tasks closed in the last three months. Mark uses this report to identify his strongest employees and encourage them further with suitable rewards and recognition.
The owners with the least number of tasks closed report helps Mark understand where his attention is most needed. This data also allows him to identify the capability limitations of the owners, as well as the complexity of the tasks handled by them. Using this, Mark devised various training programs that has helped his employees produce better results.
Apart from those mentioned above, Mark also uses reports such as project velocity, tasks based on priority, tasks completed so far by each owner etc to manage his task execution effectively.
Mark got a great deal out of Task Analytics. You can too.

As HR staff, you spend so much time performing tasks across the array of apps your organization uses. Wouldn’t it be great if you could perform all these app-based tasks right from your HRMS?
We thought so too.
Zapier is a web-based, integrated platform with over 1000 applications that facilitates the smooth flow of data between systems. We’re excited to announce that Zoho People has been added to this platform, so you can retrieve data from any app of Zapier’s network that you use on a daily basis and connect it with Zoho People.
How does the integration work?
Zapier functions on a trigger-action structure. In other words, say you add a new department in Zoho People and you want to create a new communication channel in Slack for that department. All you have to do is Make a Zap. The new department added in Zoho People would be the trigger, and the new channel created in Slack would be the action. From now on, every time you add a new department, a Slack channel is automatically created. You can build any number of Zaps for your workflows to flow faster, better, and smarter.
There are already a few Zaps flying around. Let’s take a look at them.
A trigger can be used to record the addition of a new project or task in your HRMS. Create a Zap using Asana and Zoho People, and every new project or event created in Asana will be automatically recorded in Zoho People.
Send direct event reminders or birthday wishes to employees by connecting Twilio and Zoho People. By always remembering important dates, you’ll build great rapport with your employees.
Any new file added to your Google Drive will be simultaneously added as an HR file in Zoho People, automatically.
Here are some other Zaps that can help you get started.
Plug in with a plethora of apps seamlessly and run HR processes faster with the Zoho People-Zapier integration. Get started now with a little guidance from our help documentation or write to us at email@example.com.

The Zoho Marketplace has gained traction with new integrations, extensions, and technology partners. Our overhaul of the website has increased our online visibility, as well as made the partner enrolment and app submission processes streamlined. At the end of last year, we started Zackathon, a new series of developer-centric events, and hosted them in India and the U.S. with great success.
Let’s take you through a brief tour of how Marketplace has evolved till now.
If you are a developer or system integrator looking to build applications on the Zoho platform, or integrations for any Zoho product, now is the best time to map out a partnership with us.
We would love to team up with more technology partners for Zoho Marketplace to develop our ecosystem. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for development opportunities and more information.

Accounting has come a long way. What we used to do using pen and paper we can now manage on our mobile devices from anywhere. Banking has come a long way too, from cash transactions to e-payments. Despite all this progress, we’re still innovating here at Zoho and we’ve just reached a major milestone. We’re changing the way businesses function by merging the online worlds of banking and accounting. Welcome to contextual banking.
We’ve partnered with ICICI Bank to bring accounting and banking together on one platform. The integration offers business-friendly features like direct payments from within your accounting system, automatic transaction reconciliation, super-fast reimbursements, and much more. Let’s take a look at how these features are going to ease your life.
Get paid faster
In a recent survey*, 96.7% of respondents in India reported that they were paid late by B2B customers over the past year. Cash flow is the lifeline of a business, so delayed payments affect your business significantly. But what can you do to get paid on time? You can empower your customers to pay you online by integrating your ICICI Bank current account with Zoho Books. With this integration, you can collect payments through multiple modes such as credit cards, debit cards, net banking, NEFT, RTGS, and the latest UPI. Online payments are always quicker and easier for vendors than other modes of payment. This integration gets you paid faster by making it easy for your customers too.
Pay your vendors directly
When you want to pay a bill, you might have a workflow like this: simultaneously open the invoice and your banking app, memorize the amount due, carefully enter it in your banking app, and cross-verify that you’ve chosen the correct vendor. After some toggling between your banking and accounting software, you can finally make the payment. Did you wonder if this process could get easier? It just did. With this integration, you can simply choose a bill, click Pay Now in Zoho Books, choose the payment type, and pay the vendor directly. Paying your vendors is now error-free, easy, and quick as Zoho Books and ICICI Bank are seamlessly integrated. If you have set up a payment approval process, you still get to approve the payment in the ICICI Bank’s Corporate Internet Banking (CIB) portal.
Under the old system, as soon as you paid a vendor, you would have to log in and record the payment in Zoho Books manually. Now, we can do that for you. With this integration, as soon as you make a payment, the corresponding bill will be automatically updated to paid status. Keep your records in sync without lifting a finger.
Previously, when you paid a vendor or received a payment from a customer, you would have to manually reconcile your bank feeds with your transactions in Zoho Books. Although this process helps you keep your books accurate, it is time-consuming and tedious if you have a lot of transactions. With the ICICI Bank-Zoho Books integration, all the reconciliation is automated. Your bank feeds are fetched directly from ICICI Bank and reconciled with their respective transactions in Zoho Books automatically. Set up the integration and put your reconciliation woes to rest.
When your employees incur expenses on behalf of your organization and submit expense reports for reimbursement, you used to have to validate them and manually reimburse each amount separately. Now, you can use Zoho Expense to manage your employees’ expenses quicker than ever before. Set up the integration and reimburse directly from within Zoho Expense. Depending on the type of transaction, reimbursements happen either instantly or in just a few days. As each reimbursement is processed, both the reimburser and the employee can track its status until it is settled. This makes expense management quick and uncomplicated for everyone involved.
Bring your financial worlds together
The ICICI Bank-Zoho Books integration is packed with features to benefit you and your business. And, as unbelievable as it may seem, we are bringing them all to you for free. Try this industry-first, revolutionary integration and transform your business finance and accounting. We’re making everything easy for you, one integration at a time.
We would love to hear what you think about this integration and how it helps your business. Do let us know in the comments below.

It’s high time we bid adieu to struggling with large attachments, losing our work amid a vast array of duplicates, and transferring files every time we want to switch devices. Zoho Sheet, the cloud-based spreadsheet application, can help. Draft a sales plan, collect huge data sets, break down and analyze the numbers, and create striking reports—and do it as a team, in real time, no matter where you are.
1. Work together
Let’s say you‘re out of town and need to prepare a report with your team immediately. Sending files to and fro just fritters away your time. This is where Zoho Sheet can come to the rescue. It helps you work with your team virtually, in real time.
What good is a team that doesn’t talk things over? Ask your questions, hear out suggestions, get data from your co-workers, perform group discussions, or even have a friendly debate, all inside your spreadsheet. An @mention of your colleagues lets them know exactly what parts of your file to pay attention to.
Impressed with a teammate’s suggestion? Hit “like” to let them know. Don’t forget to resolve closed discussions to unclutter the comments panel for conversations that are still pending.
3. Keep in check
It can be hard to keep track of changes, especially when there are a lot of people working on your data. Audit Trail in Zoho Sheet contains a record of every change made to your file so you can look them up to discover who made those edits and when. If necessary, you can even revert back to the old version.
You get to decide who can make changes to your file. Assign permissions for each collaborator and lock down the data you want to keep untouched to avoid accidental edits. You can lock and unlock the ranges/sheets for each individual user by switching between the toggles.
Does your team like to work from different places? We won’t tether them to their laptops. Access spreadsheets on your mobile phone with the Zoho Sheet app for iOS and Android.
You’ve been staring at your screen for what seems like hours now. Instead of sticking to one task, you’ve been shifting from one to another, then another, all the while checking social media. By the end of your day, your to-do list is longer than it was at the beginning.
You aren’t the only one having issues with mental clutter caused by a distracted mind; almost everyone at work has experienced these things at one time or another. Here are a few ways to counter distractions and stay focused.
1. Take things down on paper.
Paper as a medium shows your entire thought process. Whether you’re a developer, designer, or a writer, it can help to put down your ideas first on paper. With most of the world’s work being completed on devices, it actually may not seem to be the best bet to go back to basics, but in truth, it does.
Why? The delete key and the undo button on your word processor undermine productivity. These keys remove your mistakes, but oftentimes, they also delete rough ideas that will turn into gems. Paper shows all your work. Having a pile of notes pays off in the long run. And what’s better than having them scribbled down in a notebook?
2. Use technology wisely.
If noting things on paper isn’t in your comfort zone, then try jotting your to-do lists and notes using a note-taking app or a bot, an online tool that tracks your daily goals and can help with certain tasks. Most of the applications you use nowadays have several such bots built into their systems.
Having reminders on your phone can be helpful. You can also have bots automate specific tedious procedures such as updating your manager via chat after an individual email has been sent to a client or, maybe have it send you a message at a particular time to get you off your chair and have a cup of coffee!
3. Find support.
Whether you work in a team or as a freelancer, you are never alone. There’s always your team or the vast online community you are following behind you.
Whether communicating with a team or with a large group, never shy away from asking a question. It’ll free your mind of excessive stress and help you progress in your work. Overall, turning to a group will further your work in a multitude of ways.
In-between breaks, you’re free to check your group chats. Connect with peers and share your experiences with them. Such groups are places with diverse creative outlets, learn, and in turn, teach others. Add your coworkers into the mix. You’d be surprised to find how similar or varied they might be regarding hobbies compared to you. Such socializing strengthens bonds; it only helps in the long-run further easing your day-to-day work.
Learning to ask questions and taking criticism with positivity is hard. But once you open up, it becomes a rewarding experience that frees your mind.
4. Close unused tabs.
Take a hard look at the number of tabs you have open in your browser. If you don’t need to have them around, close them. The more tabs you have open, the more you’re tempted to flip through them. As a result, work gets lost in the mix.
5. Work in short sprints.
Try this, count how long you can work at a stretch. For most people, it’ll be around 30-40 minutes, set a timer and only work for that amount of time before taking a break. You can keep it away once you get used to it!
6. Take a break.
Put your laptop to sleep and take a walk. Spending too much time on a project in a bid to finish it faster will only lengthen it further. It’s best to take a break and let your mind refresh. Scribble, read something, listen to music, or have a snack, but try to stay away from your laptop’s screen until your break ends.
Pick what suits you the most. It’s quite easy to pick a good habit, just try to stick to it and eventually, you’ll see the change in your workflow.
Job seekers and passive candidates are instead actively being sought after by recruiters. So now it’s all about talent hunting.
Competition for talent is fiercer than ever, and it’s never been more difficult for recruiters to match the right candidate to the right job. Effective sourcing is no longer enough. These days, it’s common for candidates to get multiple offers at once. If you want them to stick with your company, you need to go the extra mile and treat the interviewing process seriously…serious enough that it requires its own on boarding process?. Well, yes. When you value their time, they’ll value yours.
1. Communication is paramount.
Proper communication channels are paramount to candidate and client engagement. An effective Blueprint will clear up space in your schedule for developing new strategies. Create a process that, in one guided cycle, automates call reminders, creates and schedules custom texts and emails, and updates candidates and clients, also set a task to update all the details of an interview in your in-built team channel.
2. Keep tabs on the social tab.
Having a quick dashboard view of your social profiles affords you an overview of your social activity and brand visibility. To ensure that top talent follows you, post regular updates about your company’s hiring, with a quick CTA for applicants to make the process of job application easy.
3. A candidate-friendly Careers page.
A vibrant and millenial-friendly Careers page , enhanced with a candidate portal that lists the jobs they have applied for, with the status of each next to the job requisition, will give candidates a 360-degree view so they can plan their next career move. Create an engaging interview experience for the candidate, so that they stick by you throughout the interview process, and no red flags at the end of it.
4. Keep data at your fingertips.
Recruiters today are also sales executives. Networking is a predominant part of their daily routine, and sometimes meetings happen on the go. Sync your database with a reporting tool to generate module-based reports daily, that can be presented anytime, anywhere.
When you can elevate your recruitment process, why not?
Sign in to your Zoho Recruit account today, to start exploring new ways to engage candidates better. Because, you are who you hire.
