Tips To Becoming A Leader At Work

Recently i read an article from Yun Siang Long At Careerealism

So Thought To Share With My Readers With Some Modification.

1. Take Accountability

Take the accountability for anything that has your iconic belief in it. That means, as long as you participate in the project, you have a hand in the failure of the project.

Learning accountability means not just the good/successful things, but even the bad/failed ones. Always find the best way to admit mistakes - it’s all right to be wrong, but need to identify and sort out. You cannot become a master, if you have not made any mistakes. One of the examples coming to my mind is Dr APJ Abdul Kalams Press Conference after a failed PSLV launch. He took the whole events in his shoulder and briefed the media with out exposing his colleagues.

2. Always trust In Win-Win

Each time a wave falls down they rise again – always think win-win. If we met failure also believe win is around the corner or down the road. If you want to be a leader at work, always believe in your hands as leader to change the world, even though others think you are crazy. Never look around the world. Try to inspire the colleagues or people around with innovation, aspiration and new thoughts and show them how to dream greater heights.

3. Push The Envelope

Try new things. Take some risk. Make yourself uncomfortable.  Leaders loves to take risks. They are not afraid of doing what they believe can do. To be a leader at work, you need to take even simple risks like taking on the project no one wants.

4. Do It, Show It

This world is full of people who talk too much and don’t do enough to full full those talkings. If you want to be a leader at work, act upon Something. If you have any ideas that are simmering in your mind, write it down, try to implement.

5. See Opportunities Everywhere

There is no need to create opportunities for yourself to lead. The opportunities to lead are everywhere. You need to be mindful of these opportunities. I have just mentioned one earlier. Are there any opportunities to take on the project no one wants? If you don’t see opportunities everywhere, you are missing the point. 

6. Be Open 

Be open to criticism, otherwise you are just living off yourself. What does it mean? When you are open to feedback, you are being fed ideas from others that are free. Often times, these ideas come from people smarter than you. They will give you tips on how to improve and how to be better. That’s what a leader needs - constant feedback. You need feedback to be a leader at work, otherwise you are “feed-own”  and you will go hungry soon. With no new ideas, a leader dries up.

7. Give, Give, Give

That’s how you open up. Pour out all you got from inside you. Give all you have ideas, thoughts, plans. Feel the vulnerability and learn to like it. When you pour all your ideas out you will need new ones. Where do new ideas come from? From critics who want to tear you down, from well-meaning supporters and from people you least expect. More comes back to you. You have more to input. It enriches you. That’s how you become a leader at work. These are the seven actions to position yourself as a leader at work. You want to be a leader at work? Do not be afraid of taking risks. You have more to gain than lose when you open up.

How to write secure mvc application using encrypting URL

There are lots ways available to write the secure Mvc application. In my experience I came across lots of secure application in public facing. I want to tell about some of the mechanism I followed.
1- encrypting the URL Parameters and preserving id's encrypted on the client side
1- I always make sure if I pass Id or any sensitive data into the view always make sure it's encrypted. By doing so make sure if we forced to use HTML.hidden or HTML.hidden for have the encrypted values, in action link if I pass any parameters from the client side (eg:- edit or create or navigating between different actions we can make sure that all the values are encrypted)
During the design of the actions results if it's http get I usually encrypt the sensitive data
Public actionresult display()
TestModel testModel=new TestModel(); encrypt(id);
Return View(testModel);
Public ActionResult Display(string id)
Guid d_id= new Guid(decrypt(id));

Compiled Query- Improve the performance of Linq to Entity Query

Most of the small or medium IT firms are using the Entity framework for the Data Access layer (DAL). If we write a complex linq to Entity queries performance will always be an issue. But with the Compiled Query Performance can be improved. This below definitions are from MSDN and more details can be found on the MSDN Link that is at the end of this post 

         When you have an application that executes structurally similar queries many times in the Entity Framework, you can frequently increase performance by compiling the query one time and executing it several times with different parameters. For example, an application might have to retrieve all the QuoteRevision for a particular quotelineStatus, the quotelinestatus is specified at runtime. LINQ to Entities supports using compiled queries for this purpose.

              The compiled query class provides compilation and caching of queries for reuse. Conceptually, this class contains aCompiledQuery'sCompilemethod with several ove…
