    I have been working at Bank of Baroda part-time

    Pros

    Humans can usually only write by hand comfortably 50–60 WPM; Typing with some training can be easily accomplished at 80–120 WPM

    Cons

    On that same note, typing has become second nature for many of us and we find ourselves mindlessly typing as we listen in class, without actually engaging. When we find ourselves guilty of this, we walk out of class having next to no idea of the lesson at hand.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to understand the business in which you are operating.

    Develop time-management skills.

    Practice active listening skills.

    Know how to motivate and lead employees.

    Continue your own training and development.

    Don't stay isolated in the office.

    Don't pretend you know all the answers.

    Don't take all the credit.

    Don't expect employees to be perfect.

    Learn to delegate effectively
