Former Spain manager Fernando Hierro, revealed that he was offered a contract extension until Qatar 2022 but he ended up rejecting it.The whole deal with Spain and Fernando Hierro during the 2018 World Cup in Russia was nothing short of surreal, he took the hot seat right after Julen Lopetegui got sacked and attempted to right the ship during the competition with little luck.Despite the evident poor performance by the Spanish national team during the competition after getting eliminated by the tournament hosts, Fernando Hierro revealed that he even got offered a contract extension to continue managing the squad until the next World Cup.The former manager recently offered an interview to ‘O11CE Metros’ magazine, where he revealed several details of his whole experience and also how the whole new contract offer took place.“I just turned 50 years old and I have never seen anything like it in my life, to live a situation of such magnitude just three days before the start of a World Cup,” said Hierro in a fragment of the interview picked up by Mundo Derpotivo.“My commitment and honesty took me to take the job as the manager. I understood that I had to do it then, my conscience is clear.”“I actually had a contract until the Qatar World Cup and I still think that the best solution was to step aside, for me and everyone else.”“I decided that I needed to give a chance to the younger generation. We have amazing players and manager, which is the case of Luis Enrique, who is a wonderful national team manager.”Quiz: How much do you know about David Villa?

Kolkata: Police arrested a real estate developer following an interrogation at Bidhannagar North police station in connection with a case where an allegation of cheating an elderly person has cropped up.Police said one Suchitra Bakshi had lodged a complaint against real estate developer Biswadeep Chakraborty. She lodged the complaint alleging that she was cheated by Chakraborty, who had engaged into an agreement with her to develop a multi-storeyed residential building on her plot in Salt Lake. She claimed that she was supposed to get Rs 70 lakh from the developer and also a floor of the building along with a parking space as per the agreement.

Rent of three months were also given by the developer in advance. But the situation turned worse when the rent was no more paid and the landlord didn’t allow the complainant to stay anymore at the rented house. The complainant had repeatedly attempted to seek attention of the real estate developer. But it was of no help, she alleged. Finally, she shifted to another rented house at Lake Town and lodged a complaint with the police. Police initiated a probe in this connection and initially detained him for interrogation. He failed to give any clarification to many questions of the investigating officers for which he was arrested.

Only 25 percent of “computing” professionals are women, according to the National Center for Women and Information Technology, and the percentage shrinks moving up the corporate ladder. In fact, only 11 percent of executives at Silicon Valley tech companies are women. And the numbers for women of color are even worse.Related: 3 Ways Women Can Turn Fear of Failure Into Fearless ActionThe causes of this imbalance are many and still debated. They include bias (both conscious and unconscious), structural barriers and organizational culture. In addition, research has found that women working in traditionally male-dominated industries and functions (like technology) have access to fewer leadership development opportunities than men in those fields.As a result, while 80 percent of women in science, engineering and technology report “loving their work,” the female attrition rate in such fields is higher than it is for men. In “high-tech” industries, they leave at more than twice the rate as men (41 percent compared to 17 percent).What’s a talented woman to do when she feels torn between staying and leaving? What’s her organization to do to make sure she stays?What is coaching?Coaching is an increasingly popular strategy used to help talented women build their skills and advance in their careers. Many organizations make the investment themselves in coaching for their “high-potential” employees, and research has shown that coaching can be particularly effective in helping to narrow the gender gap in leadership development.Coaching is a one-on-one relationship in which a professional coach works with an employee or client to achieve personal professional goals, providing feedback and direction that facilitates improvement. Sometimes, organizations or individuals hire coaches from outside the organization. Increasingly, though, they’re training managers or other employees to serve as coaches inside the organization, especially as a way to support performance or supplement more formal learning and development programs.Related: 11 Strategies to Lead and Succeed as a Minority WomanBenefits for the organizationIn addition to the obvious benefits of demonstrating support and encouragement for female employees, an organization profits (literally) in other ways from providing or supporting coaching for its high-potential women. Coaching improves employee engagement, productivity and retention, as well as business management and team effectiveness.As individuals learn to manage relationships better, the entire organization benefits from those improved relationships. Now that organizations are starting to use coaching across levels rather than just for executives, they are building resilience across teams. Coaching also supports recruitment, especially of the ever-in-demand millennial generation.Benefits for the womanSo, what specifically happens in those coaching conversations, and how can they help women in tech?While coaching is not a replacement for therapy, mentoring, or training, it can provide related outcomes and be an important part of a more comprehensive personal and professional development plan. Coaching can support improved leadership, communication, and time management skills and improve self-confidence, relationships, and work-life balance.Popular goals include:Working toward a leadership role.Improving professional performance.Improving relationships.Increasing self-confidence.Managing work-life balance.Sound familiar? Many of these challenges — especially advancing into leadership and managing work-life balance — are common among women in technology.Recent research revealed promising data about coaching, especially regarding its potential to equalize leadership development access between men and women. In a 2017 survey, men were 50 percent more likely than women to say their leadership training was “very effective.” However, when respondents reported having received coaching as part of their leadership development, that difference almost disappeared.If you’re a woman in technology wanting to move into a leadership position, it may be worth finding a coach outside the organization to help you build your skills. However, you may also ask a senior member of your team — one whom you respect and believe has the time and people skills to do the job — to be an informal, on-the-job coach. Make sure this person is willing to coach you and also understands what the role of a coach is (for instance, it’s not the same as a mentor). You might even find that there are people in your organization who have been trained in coaching skills.Related: How to Listen to Your Intuition and Create Your Dream LifeIf you’re a business leader, especially in tech, who wants to improve gender diversity across your organization, consider bringing in an outside coach, or offering training to managers to help them learn to coach high-potential women. You might find that the costs of losing your female employees far outweigh the costs of coaching them.(By Taryn Oesch, CPTM.
