10 ways to help manage Your Workplace Stress

10 ways to help manage Your Workplace Stress Work stress is not necessarily a negative force. In fact, without a certain level of stress to challenge us, our jobs would be boring and unrewarding. Stress becomes a problem, however, when it reaches such an extreme that we are unable to cope with it. The solution to stress, therefore, is not to eliminate it altogether but to maintain it at a level where it remains a positive motivating force. Here are ten of the best simple strategies for keeping stress in check. They’re easy to remember – and they work… Here are 10 ways to help manage your workplace stress. 1. Create a pleasant work environment for yourself. If you spend a great deal of time in your office, make it pleasant, without being self-indulgent. Convert your tired office into a place you can enjoy – with art pieces, rug, [...]

13 steps to setting Achievable Goals

13 steps to Setting Achievable Goals Goal-setting has been described as ‘the inner technology of success’. It is one of the most important activities you can do. Unless taken seriously, this vital planning task will be futile, producing only a few high-sounding intentions that, for various reasons, are soon forgotten. So, if you want challenging and achievable goals, follow these 13 steps to Setting Achievable Goals... 1. Make sure your goals are realistic. A goal that aims too high, or offers a great deal of risk, with little chance of achievement, leads to frustration and surrender. It’s easy, for example, to say that a goal for the year is: ‘To increase production by 150%’ - but quite unrealistic with inadequate resources and uncommitted staff. 2. Keep your goals simple. If goals are complex, it is unlikely they will be clear and specific enough to focus effort and marshal the [...]

11 Ways to Achieving Success

11 Ways to Achieving Success Achieving Success can be highly subjective. Seinfield’s Uncle Leo told everyone who’d listen just how successful he thought his son Jeffrey was. Uncle Leo’s assessment, however, did not meet with unanimous approval (Jeffrey was probably embarrassed, too). In Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman defined ‘success’ as ‘talent + luck’ and ‘increased success’ as ‘a little more talent + a lot of luck’. One of the main criteria for success seems to be to have made it to the top in a particular field such as world chess champion, one of the world’s top-ranked tennis players, or the world’s greatest golfer. There are, therefore, some things (behaviors more than traits) that are considered essential – even for those of us with less lofty ambitions. Consider these. 1. Work at it. It’s a cliché, but there is some truth in it: the only place ‘success’ [...]

9 effective ways to ask for a pay rise

9 effective ways to ask for a pay rise In some organisations, pay increases are tied automatically to levels and years of experience. In others, regular salary reviews are held with individual employees. Elsewhere, little will happen unless the employee takes the initiative. If you are in this position, and you want to remain with your existing employer, here are 9 effective ways to ask for a pay rise 1. Make sure you deserve it.

Laughter in the Workplace!

 As a manager, you can set the tone by implementing simple techniques to provide employees with a bit of fun and enjoyment. But why? Laughter is an important part of being human. Who doesn't love laughing!? We all need to laugh! Especially now in these hard times, where we can sometimes forget to laugh. Here is some information on the importance of laughter! Laughter heals William Fry Jr, the 'Doctor of Humour', has researched the power of humour for over thirty years. He is convinced that laughter is a total body experience, an 'internal massage' that embraces all the body's systems - muscles, brain, nerves, digestion. Following stimulation and exercise caused by laughter, the body relaxes. Indeed, claims Fry, like jogging, laughter is a good aerobic exercise. It aerates the lungs, relaxes the muscles, nerves and heart, expands breathing and circulation, and enhances oxygen intake and expenditure. He says that [...]

Finding a Positive Attitude in 2020

This week we have been focusing on positive attitudes. Having a positive attitude is key to success with what ever you do. | We have compiled some different tips, stories and quotes that can help you find a positive attitude for 2020. Flying with Superman Former heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali, so the story goes, was once in an aircraft preparng for take-off. A flight attendant noticed that his seatbelt was unfastened. 'Sir, would you please do up your seat belt?' Muhammad Ali looked up with his characteristic saucy grin and said in his slow, gravelly drawl: 'Superman don't need no seatbelt!' But the attendant was quick with a reply: 'Superman don't need no aeroplane. Do up your belt!' Muhammad Ali, as we know, was renowned for his positive mental attitude, a trait he displayed every day throughout his career, in the ring and [...]

11 Ways You Can Tackle Priorities

1. Address management problems first. Give top priority to any problem on your list that is making you ineffective as a manager. If, for example, you have a personal conflict with your superior or your personal assistant, your effectiveness in dealing with other priorities could be seriously hampered. Face such problems immediately; get them out in the open; and devise solutions quickly. 2. Group your priorities meaningfully. It is sometimes possible to prioritise your daily goals and save time and effort. For example, by postponing an inspection of new equipment in the factory block across the parking lot until after lunch, you might find that you can do so after a scheduled mid-afternoon meeting with the factory supervisor. You may even be able to accomplish a couple more of your goals for the day during that one trip. Sensible planning brings its time-saving rewards. 3. Do it – [...]

How to establish a Learning Culture in the Workplace

It’s one thing to say that you want to be a business or organisation with a learning culture, but to actually see it cultivated is another story. This requires the acceptance of particular attitudes, values and practices that support ongoing learning. Training is a key part of the process when it comes to establishing a learning culture. Learning serves to expand thinking, open minds and encourage individuals to reinterpret their world. Peter Senge identified five disciplines of a learning culture that contribute to building a vibrant and healthy learning culture. Personal Mastery: Cultivate an environment where individual goals are valued and achieved through partnership with the employee and the organisation. Mental Models: The idea that people’s perception of their environment shapes their decisions and behaviour. Shared Vision: Encourage teamwork and sharing by collaboratively setting goals and planning objectives. Team Learning: Valuing group conversation and thinking skills so [...]

11 ways to Communicate Effectively at work

The term ‘communication’ now includes many activities associated with everyday organisational life - oral, face-to-face, formal, informal, personal, interpersonal, nonverbal, and written - which is why so many organisational headaches are attributed to ‘communication problems’. Indeed, a common finding of organisational reviews is that ‘communication needs to be improved’. We spend so much time ‘communicating’, but so few of us give much thought to the essentials of this key management activity... 1. Always work to establish rapport. Without the trust and confidence of others with whom you are communicating, much of what you say will be lost. It is imperative, therefore, that you take time to establish and build rapport. Knowing your audience is a vital part of this process. 2. Attract the attention of your target audience. It’s not what you communicate but how you do it. People are being bombarded with information and have become very [...]

8 Steps to Implementing a Great Mission Statement

You’ve followed the suggestions provided on previous pages about developing a mission statement and are now ready to implement that mission. If you’ve used an inclusive process to develop the statement, your efforts will be rewarded in this implementation phase: you’ve demonstrated an understanding of the importance in the development of acceptance, commitment, and ownership. Now, in implementation, you can benefit from your efforts thus far… 1. Form an ad hoc committee. Select a working party representative of all groups in the organisation – management and staff. This team, established for the specific purpose of successfully implementing the new mission, will be disbanded after this intention has been realised. By being expansive about committee membership, you will give every group an opportunity to be involved in the implementation process. Make sure that each working party member wants to be involved and, therefore, is prepared to give the task the priority [...]

How to Avoid Causing Conflict

Conflict is inevitable in any organisation. When handled properly, it can contribute significantly to personal and organisational health. It can improve understanding and produce innovative solutions to problems. When handled poorly, however, it leads to hurt feelings, damaged relationships, and low morale. Managers must be able to minimise hostility between themselves and their staff members; and the best way to manage harmful conflict is to prevent it from ever arising. Here are some suggestions... 1. Learn to be an effective communicator. Communication is the lifeblood of an organisation. Conflict is often caused by people not listening to or understanding each other. Misunderstandings can result in accusations, blame, and personal attacks. At times, there is no real conflict, simply misinterpretation. Work at improving your communication skills for listening and speaking so that you minimise misunderstanding. Convey the need for clarity in all your discussions. 2. Keep your staff informed. By [...]

6 Steps to Developing Leadership Qualities in Others

Even those people who support the disputed theory that leaders are ‘born’ to excel, admit that environment and training are usually needed to develop successful leaders. Effective leaders are a vital ingredient to business, sports, medical, research, military, and all other team-oriented activities. The important questions, of course, are: Where do leaders come from? How do we find them? How can we identify them? How can we make them? The answers relate to recognizing talent and then encouraging, cultivating, and mentoring those potential leaders so that they can flourish in your organization. Explore the following strategies to help you and your organization succeed in this process… 1. Consider what strategies you currently have in place in your organization. To gauge what is required in terms of a leadership development program in your organization, you will need to answer the following questions: • Does our company have a comprehensive plan [...]
