LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Jones has worked hard on his fitness and is now the modern version of the old-school prop he used to beCountry WalesAge 30 (8 March 1981)Position Tighthead propBorn Abercrave, PowysAdam Jones made his Wales debut in 2003 and has gone on to play in three World Cups and win 75 caps for his country. He also impressed when playing in two Tests for the 2009 Lions. Here he talks us through his rugby journey…I loved rugby from the start. When I was seven, a new headteacher at my primary school introduced a number of sports into our school and I took to rugby straightaway.From the start we played with mixed ages because I went to a small school with only about 30 kids. I was playing with boys older than me and it was full tackling; there was no tag or touch rugby in those days.My parents were heavily involved in rugby at the local club, Abercrave, so I think they were delighted when I started playing. I remember getting up with them in the middle of the night to watch the 1987 World Cup.Jones back in 2003 – AustraliaMy life in rugby started at flanker, but when I started senior school I was moved into the front row and I was on the tighthead right from the start.Church on Sunday with my mother meant I couldn’t play club rugby in my early days, but I carried on with my school team and with the Swansea Valley. My teacher, Darren Jones, was a prop so that certainly helped.To avoid getting a job when I left school, I agreed with my parents that I’d go on a Rugby Studies course at college in Llanelli. At the front of the class was Sean Holley, who was my lecturer and who is now Ospreys head coach. I didn’t know then that our paths would cross again.I’m grateful for the support my parents gave me after school. They had sent my older brother to university and supported me. That allowed me to achieve what I have.I’ll admit I was a few pounds overweight after college, but the Neath coaches, including Lyn Jones, saw enough in me to give me a chance with their U21s.Tough is how I’d describe my introduction to senior rugby with Neath. It was a case of sink or swim right from the start.My first scrum in senior rugby, against this older guy, seemed to go well. But he dropped the second one and punched me full in the face. To be honest I didn’t know what to do, so I just carried on. After the match he came into our dressing room with two cans of Heineken and we enjoyed a beer.I’d recommend to anyone to play a season or two in the lower leagues as the standard is still very good. I’ve said before at the Ospreys that our props should do a spell there. Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK. Or you may prefer the digital edition on your MAC, PC, or iPad.

CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA – OCTOBER 14: Adam Jones and Duncan Jones (R) of Wales during a Welsh training session at the Canberra Raiders training facility on October 14, 2003 in Canberra, Australia. (Photo by Mark Nolan/Getty Images) Mad is what I would have called anyone who’d said in my Neath days that I would even play for Wales, let alone more than 70 times, and that I would become a British & Irish Lion.I was shocked to be called up to the Wales squad in my final year at Neath and then to get an Ospreys contract. It was only then that I started to believe I could have a career as a rugby player. A few months later, in the summer of 2003, I won my first cap for Wales – it all seemed to happen so quickly.Incredible is how I’d describe the experience of the Lions tour to South Africa in 2009. It’s one I’ll never forget, although I’ve found playing for Wales amazing as well.My target now is definitely 100 caps and I would love to go on another Lions tour in 2013, although I know there are a load of new, younger props coming through at the moment.I’m looking forward to the RBS 6 Nations, and another great campaign. This is always a special time and, taking nothing away from how well Huw (Bennett) did at the World Cup, it will be great to have Matthew Rees back with us. 2012 is also my testimonial year and there’s going to be lots of events going on, so there are exciting times ahead.DID YOU KNOW?Jones became the sixth person to play 150 games for the Ospreys when facing the Scarlets on Boxing Day 2011This article appeared in the March 2012 issue of Rugby World Magazine.

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter A Generous Conversationalist No Matter Your Personality TypeA good conversationalist is a generous conversationalist. Few of us are narcissistic enough to expect to do a one-sided stand-up routine when we talk with others. We want good back-and-forth, and listening is essential to that. However, to be a good listener, we need something to listen to. We need to learn to engage people in conversations that bring them out and allow them to talk about themselves and their worlds. Sometimes people are reluctant to speak, but they still may want to connect – even the quietest Introverts. Mostly, people want to feel heard.Conversing across personality types can be a little like speaking a foreign language. Assuming you’re not French, you might get a cup of coffee in a Paris shop using another international language, but you might win a Parisian’s heart if you try their language instead. Allez-y, soyez courageux!Same with how we approach people. Sometimes we need to learn how to speak other people’s “language.” That doesn’t mean you have to stop speaking your own personality’s tongue. You don’t become less “you” when you try to connect with someone else on their terms. You can stay true to yourself while committing an act of generosity and respect.Good chatters usually keep a couple of handy tools in their toolboxes, such as an assortment of reliable methods and a measure of common sense. The art of conversation is mostly developed through practice, and there is no adequate guide besides experience. As with many things, it takes practice, practice, practice.What we offer in this article is mostly general. We provide broad guidelines (including Roles instead of specific types or traits) for reaching out to other personality types at your job or in your social circle. Where the expert conversationalist might use a scalpel, this article is offering a mallet. You’ll probably have to fine-tune what we provide here for the unique individuals you meet. But this may point you in the right direction and get you started.The general guidelines offered here come from our theory, experience, and some data from our polls. The viewpoint is one of you trying to engage another person with specific personality traits. By now, it’s assumed, you already know your own strengths and weaknesses. (If not, much is available throughout our site, and this might be an excellent time to take our free personality test if you haven’t already.) You already know your own interests. Now, let’s work on focusing your conversations when talking to different personality types.Chatting with Analyst Personality Types“The most fruitful and natural exercise for our minds is, in my opinion, conversation.”MICHEL DE MONTAIGNEBreaking the IceTo get an Analyst’s attention, you probably won’t get far with the usual small talk. They’re probably too busy in the far reaches of their imagination to worry about anything trivial. (“Nice venue, huh?” may not impress them. “Yes, it is.” Putt… putt… the conversation stalls and begins to spin toward the ground.)You might have more success if you offer something that takes a bit of dissecting. Maybe an opener that starts with, “I wonder why…?” such as, “I wonder why they chose St. Louis as the city to hold the conference…” “I wonder why they picked this year’s theme…” “I wonder why they don’t offer a salad with their tacos…” (Repeating “I wonder why…” may get a little annoying, so mix it up.)Analysts often think in terms of “why,” “how,” and “what if.” While there are no guaranteed topics, the likelihood of engaging an Analyst personality type will increase with an open-ended question that requires a little examining of the facts.Going DeeperGet them to talk about practical issues from the viewpoint of how they might be improved. “I’ve often wondered how we can spend less money and still train all of our employees…” “I never know how to fit everything I need to do into my schedule. How do you handle your calendar?” Give them a little puzzle to work on.Then, gently and politely, challenge them. While Analyst personality types are not any more likely to enjoy their ideas being challenged than anybody else, they often take pride in defending a position. Announcing that you’re playing devil’s advocate not only takes away the feeling that it’s a personal affront, but also suggests that you are looking for more information. Any time you look for clarification, it might appeal to Analysts, who will likely enjoy explaining things to you.Typically, individuals with the Intuitive and Thinking personality traits are too busy constructing ideas in their heads to be paying complete attention to you anyway. Unless they see you as an expert – or, at least, on their level – they may not always be listening. You’re probably not going to change that. But your silence can be a very potent conversational skill when meted out at the right time and in the right measure. So, patience.Getting the facts out or a problem solved will be more important to Analysts than making sure everybody has a turn at speaking. Your best chance for gaining the stage, if you must have it, is to offer some interesting new information to Analysts, especially if it’s a challenging idea.Things to AvoidAvoid making claims you can’t back up. Offering theories to an Analyst personality puts you where you want to be – in their ballpark. Just make sure your theories have credible foundations, or you’ll lose respect and probably any measure of engagement you’ve earned.Avoid the warm and fuzzy as a rationale. While Analysts are capable of empathy and caring for people when called upon to do so, they rarely look at the world through that filter. “If we did that, the human resources people would be miffed,” might produce a shrug from them. Too much “touchy-feely” soft discussion and they might wonder how serious you are about the issues you raise.Chatting with Diplomat Personality Types“Manners are the ability to put someone else at their ease…by turning any answer into another question.”TINA BROWNBreaking the IceFocusing on the human condition is exactly the thing that grabs Diplomats’ attention. Talk about the humanity of a situation, and you’ll watch their metaphorical ears perk up. “My goodness. I can’t believe the restaurant is making those people stay outside in the freezing rain while waiting for a table.” “Did you read the news about the refugees? Isn’t that terrible?” “Isn’t Betty hilarious? She’s become much friendlier lately.”Going DeeperMany Diplomat personalities love a cause, whether it is on a local level or something more global. Discovering what their causes are, and their beliefs or behaviors around those causes, will encourage them to share. Big ideas about social matters resonate with many Diplomats. Sharing your own causes, if you have any, may reveal a kindred spirit and lubricate the conversation.Highlighting a problem and brainstorming a solution may also work. “I felt they humiliated Janet at the meeting today. I wonder what we can do to help her out?” “I heard one in five people go to bed hungry. But what can the average person do?”Diplomat personalities not only advocate for improvement in societies and communities, but on a more micro level, they are often fans of personal development. Some may be interested in spiritual evolution. Topics around human growth often intrigue Diplomats and may pull them deeper into a conversation. “I took up yoga a few months ago. It’s made a world of difference. Have you ever tried it?” “I’m trying to read at least an hour a day again. I became so busy… I really missed it. Do you find time to read much?” “I’m trying this new technique for curbing bad habits…”Things to AvoidUnless you’re up for a heated response, avoid saying anything that makes people sound like an inanimate cog in the machine or just a number. An Analyst personality might shrug when someone says, “If we did that, the human resources people would be miffed,” but that same statement is likely to worry the Diplomat. They may shut down. Statistics about human suffering are often met with disdain. “So what if unemployment is down to five percent? Sure, that’s better. But try being one of the five percent.”When speaking with a Diplomat, learn to go with the flow and avoid being offended or defensive when they don’t seem to connect the way you expect. Intuitive personality types tell us they spend more time than their Observant counterparts anticipating what they will say next instead of listening.However, the sense that they aren’t relating may be somewhat lessened by Diplomats’ Feeling personality trait. For them, it’s all about harmony and understanding. Diplomats will try to give equal time (or more) in the conversation out of a sense of fairness. They try to genuinely hear what others have to say. Even so, this may always compete, at least a little, with their busy imaginations. They may not always sound like they are on the same track as you, but it doesn’t mean they aren’t processing your information. They may be doing so, but in their unique way. So, don’t give up.Chatting with Sentinel Personality Types“As far as I am concerned, philosophic questioning is just as likely to make you confused and depressed as it is to improve your condition.”CHRISTOPHER PAOLINIBreaking the IceSmall talk is about noticing and commenting on the everyday things around you. Sentinels, with their Observant personality trait, are all about the present and concrete world. Small talk is generally just fine with them. Ask about their job, their hobbies, or their family and friends and let the conversation roll. Even Introverted Sentinels highly value connection and the idea of community – whether they are active in it or not. Their work, families, and communities are likely hot topics.Going DeeperSentinels love to talk about how life is going or how it should be going. They enjoy practical issues and current matters. They are loyal to the people and things they value in their lives. They can also be status-oriented, so talking about homes, cars, vacations, and children might help spark conversations, depending on the Sentinel type.Those Sentinels who prefer the Thinking personality trait might be interested in things that involve procedures and making a system run well. A horror story about some logistical nightmare is good fodder for talk at work. Those who rely more on the Feeling trait may highlight the people in their lives. They are warm and empathic listeners and like to share stories about more personal matters.Sentinels rarely seek praise but are thrilled when others recognize their efforts. Bringing some honest and well-placed compliments into a conversation pleases most people. These hard-working personality types appreciate it (and maybe even deserve it) more than most.Things to AvoidObservant types are not so interested in theories unless they have a very direct connection to some practical outcome, so “keep it real.” Fantasy also has its limits in conversations with them. They may enjoy a movie about superheroes and their missions to save mankind. The sense of duty may appeal to them. But don’t get them into an argument about whether Iron Man can take down Captain America. That can seem way too silly to Sentinel personalities.Avant-garde ideas and trendy things also have a short shelf life. Something along those lines may strike them as interesting…but only for a minute. There are too many real-life matters to talk about. Sports, politics, fashion, or anything actual and conventionally real in their lives might be a good substitute when the conversation gets too “out there.”Sentinels’ loyalties run deep, so be careful if you are critical of someone or something they feel strongly about. Some people don’t mind going negative on families or jobs during a chat. Sentinels may take offense when they do. They often identify too closely with these parts of their lives and are put off by displays of such opinions.Chatting with Explorer Personality Types“Sometimes the greatest adventure is simply a conversation.”AMADEUS WOLFEBreaking the IceTypically, when other people are talking, Explorers are doing something, thinking about doing something, or on their way to do something. That doesn’t mean they can’t stop long enough to be great conversationalists. Many of them love talking about what they are doing.One way to get an Explorer talking is to ask about their latest project or mission. It isn’t so much the conceptual stuff that interests them, and they’d rather focus on the activities involved. “How exactly would you do that?”No matter what they do for a living, Explorer personality types are the skilled, hands-on performers and artisans among us. Usually, there is a lot to spark a conversation there. “When you sing like that, how in the world do you hit that high note?” “Have you been rebuilding engines long? When was the first time you rebuilt one?” “They change the steps for CPR so often. Right now, it just confuses me. As a first responder, you must know the best way to resuscitate a person.”Going DeeperExplorer personalities often like to be the heroes of their own stories, but this isn’t necessarily about egotism or narcissism (although that might sometimes be there). They get much of their self-esteem from being useful. And, consequently, they like having their skills recognized. “Skilled” is more or less their brand.So, they like when their expert handling of something is played up either by themselves or someone else. It validates who they are. Getting them to tell a story about how they agilely saved the day or used their talents to make a difference will usually engage them. Imagine your Explorer wearing a button that says, “I’m good in crises. Ask me how.”Explorers often like things that are trendy and cutting edge, and talking to them about the latest in anything that interests them will keep them in the conversation. Conversations about a superior new technique for doing anything is perfect.Some Explorers with the Feeling personality trait see themselves as counselors or sometimes mentors. Asking the advice of individuals in this subgroup may also stoke the conversational fires.Things to AvoidAs with their Observant cousins, the Sentinels, Explorer personalities stay away from theory and are more interested in concrete matters that can be physically manipulated. If the conversation turns too much to what exists solely in someone’s mind, you might lose them. However, translate that theory into real action, and you’ll get them back.Be careful not to judge them for taking risks or departing from conventional methods. These personality types are so utilitarian that they sometimes feel fine with rules being broken, and sometimes they find it necessary to take risks to do things. They will simply think you don’t get it if you criticize. While you don’t have to approve of their unorthodox methods, when talking with them, withhold judgment. (Unless it’s your job to keep them in line.) You might even draw them in by praising their ingenuity and boldness without condoning their methods.ConclusionsPeople are not usually compliant enough to be so cookie-cutter simple. People are too complex to make communicating so one-dimensional and easy. You won’t find the absolute Analyst, Diplomat, Sentinel, or Explorer out there. These are only guidelines that may help if you feel like a conversation is hard to start, or your conversations have hit the doldrums.No matter what technique you use, the final goal is to exchange thoughts, emotions, facts, or ideas in a genuine and spontaneous manner. It’s about connecting with another person. If you lose that, it’s just so much talk.How are your conversational skills, and how do you think your personality type affects them? What are some tips you can share about talking with people who have traits different from yours? Tell us about it in the comments below. This article is part of a series aimed at helping our readers cope with the COVID-19 crises and grow stronger by taking time to learn about ourselves and others, particularly as it relates to understanding personality type and response preferences. It’s not about stereotyping or labeling, but exploring strengths and opportunities. Great for couples, friend groups, families, and business teams. This article is on the art of conversation, and while we may not be able to converse face-to-face, the benefits are still there, however we get to talk these days.Don’t yet know your personality type? Take the free personality test. Many share how “freakishly accurate” it is and how incredible to finally feel understood. It’s similar to Myers-Briggs (for personality-type aficionados), but with a researched twist.

Advertisement Smartchange online system can save companies ’44 staff days a year’ Launched two years ago, the smartchange Giving System provides any UK charity a free and simple method of getting their details onto the desktop of blue-chip corporate employees via their company Intranet and a call centre. These employees can then set-up regular payroll donations or volunteer their time to a charity within 3 clicks. Nasim Rashid, the smartchange Giving System Community Affairs Director says: “The smartchange Giving System was built to “take the pain away” of setting up a volunteering and payroll donation scheme. It is no surprise that it has provided our clients with a saving of 44 man-days per year compared to their previous paper-based schemes. “One of our objectives for this year is to further update the software to give our corporate customers even more savings and get closer to our goal of having a “zero-touch” volunteering and payroll donation system. This will greatly relieve the burden on overstretched HR and Payroll staff.” Tagged with: Digital Volunteering About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Melanie May | 24 November 2017 | News Demand for fundraisers exceeds supply, so new and better recruitment processes and induction plans must be developed, with candidate packs that give greater insight into advertised roles.Charities should nominate an individual or a committee to take responsibility for ensuring data protection compliance. One of their first jobs should be to identify the lawful basis for processing activity in the GDPR, and to document this.Collaborations must be supported by improvements in training provision across the sector and recognition that achieving long-term financial sustainability through self-generated income requires investment. This can be nurtured by both national and local government through provision of training. Funders can also play a part, by permitting funds for capacity building in their grants, thereby recognising their role in helping charities’ long-term financial resilience.Because there is a lack of affordable professional development in Scotland, fundraisers in Scotland, at least in the medium term, will need to accept that the learning and development support for their charity will be limited. As a consequence, they will need to be proactive, to seek out opportunities and build their own personal brand.Mafe Marwick said:“The aim of this report is to identify and explore the main issues that affect fundraising practice in Scotland, and to offer recommendations to tackle these issues. We hope that the issues and topics developed in the report will resonate with readers, and will be a stepping stone for debate and discussion, and for fundraisers to work together in order to find solutions to the challenges identified.”The Critical Fundraising (Scotland) Report is the second in the series following the publication of Critical Fundraising (Ireland) Report at the Ask Direct Summer School in Dublin in August. Reports for the USA and Italy will be published in the spring of 2018 with work on a Canadian report about to begin.

It found a need for more investment both by umbrella bodies and charities into research and analysis. It also highlights a lack of affordable professional development opportunities, which it states is leading to a lack of skilled senior fundraisers across the Scottish profession and difficulty in recruiting and maintaining high standards.The report says:“Umbrella bodies and charities themselves must invest in accessing and producing Scotland-specific research and analysis that enable learning and evidence-based decision making. Additionally, they must strive to provide a comprehensive programme of training and professional development tailored to the Scottish market and accessible to fundraisers of all sizes, stages and locations.”A number of other issues are also identified and developed in the report, including Scottish fundraising regulations, cuts in public funding, and the implications of the GDPR and other data protection legislation.The report makes 23 recommendations for tackling the issues including: Advertisement Rogare report reveals fundraising issues for Scotland 303 total views, 1 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Additionally, public and private insurers paid out nearly $300 million according to the Aon Global Catastrophe Recap report.In a report earlier this year, CoreLogic reported that insured residential and commercial flood loss covered by the NFIP is estimated to be between $100 million and $200 million after Hurricane Barry, but 20% of residential flood loss is uninsured. CoreLogic states that uninsured flood loss is estimated to be approximately $100 million, while approximately 500,000 total residential and commercial property policies are in force through the NFIP.Wind losses, not covered by the NFIP, are expected to total between $300 million and $500 million. Insured flood and wind losses, excluding National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) losses, are between $300 million and $600 million.Craig Poulton, CEO of private flood insurer Poulton Associates, told Insurance Business that continuing to build in flood risk zones is “insane.”“As all of these named storms have proven in one way or another, we simply on a local level and a national level are not responding to the new reality,” said Poulton on Insurance Business. “We need to recognize that we have to stop putting lives and values in the way of storms, and in the way of flooding in particular.”Lawmakers are taking some steps to update the NFIP. For example, Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith is proposing an update to the Program which aims to address the multiple extensions the NFIP has undergone with a long-term extension plan.In her letter to Senate Banking Committee Chairman Michael Crapo and Ranking Member Sherrod Brown, Hyde-Smith puts forth several options to address affordability issues among low and middle-income policy holders and debt issues within the NFIP. Recently, the House Financial Services Committee unanimously approved two bills to reform and reauthorize the NFIP. H.R. 3111 would bring improvements to the NFIP appeals process, accountability, and transparency of claims process in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, and H.R. 3167 would reauthorize the NFIP for five years and includes numerous reforms to increase affordability, mapping and modernization.

Fast-track manager scheme fills staff shortages at TescoOn 20 May 2003 in Personnel Today Supermarket giant Tesco has undertaken an accelerated leadership trainingscheme in a bid to plug skills gaps. Judith Nelson, Tesco’s UK stores HR director, told delegates that in theearly part of 2002 10 per cent of the chain’s shops were without a storemanager. In response, Tesco decided to put 50 people through leadership training –which normally takes a year – in just 12 weeks. “We needed a radical approach because of our vacancies,” she said.”We had to find 50 people to start the course in six weeks, and needed arobust assessment process to get the right people. “We wanted people who would make great store managers and potentiallymove up to become directors.” Tesco, supported by DDI, assessed 200 candidates at a half-day assessmentcentre, and then put 47 successful applicants through a 12-week residentialprogramme at a cost of £1.5m. The company is tracking the progress of the fast-tracked managers to seewhether the investment was worth it. From an idea first presented at Easter 2002, Tesco managed to have themanagers in place by September, and reduced store-manager vacancies to singlefigures. However, Nelson said, they did made one mistake – not asking them to bemobile. Some locations now have more trained managers than stores. The danger of this, she said, is that those without stores may become boredand move to the competition. Related posts:No related photos.
