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 [...]

Ever wondered why it’s hard to remember the route to a particular place when you were the passenger in the car? Why is it that the driver will most likely remember exactly where to go? Having to actually do the driving and take part in the action of finding the destination causes the information to be embedded in our minds. This is an important thing to remember if you are an employer, a manager or a supervisor needing to train others. At Global Training Institute we value people’s learning and endeavour to give everyone an opportunity to learn in their chosen way. Learning is inhibited when you as the ‘trainer’: Tell them exactly how to do something Do it for them Provide every answer for them when they ask questions Allow them to remain in their comfort zones Refuse to accept mistakes and expect perfection Refuse to guide them through [...]

What Every Employee Should Know About Obligations When Training

In our last blog post, we talked about Employer obligations.  In this post, we turn to the employee.  When an employer provides an employee with the opportunity for training, there are specific obligations that both parties need to agree to. As an employer, here are some expectations that your employees might have: Employees must: Be aware of, and be willing to abide by, all aspects of the training agreements Inform the employer about any concerns that are experiencing with the training or RTO Respect training resources Handle proprietary company knowledge with confidentiality Respect colleagues when training Make significant effort to fulfil the training requirements and obtain the skills needed As an employer can you think of any other obligations an employee might have?

How to Prevent Things Going Wrong

Things go wrong in organisations for a number of reasons: people might do less than they are capable of, or misuse their resources, or choose an inappropriate time or place to act... We misread situations; we take the wrong actions; we're often out of tune and out of step. But things could be worse: what if our errors were tabulated and published every weekend like those of a football team? You can reduce the number of mistakes in your organisation by considering this advice... 1. Learn from your previous mistakes. Mistakes will happen. Murphy had it right when he said that if anything can go wrong, it will. The worst mistake is to make the same mistake more than once. Learn to analyse what goes wrong, make notes on what to do and what not to do next time - and make sure you get it right in future. 2. [...]

In our previous blog post we spoke about the benefits of having and maintaining a personal achievements list in order to make this year your year of success.

Don't let this year get away from you! Make the most of each day by knowing what it is you want to accomplish. We have compiled some information, stories and quotes to further your understanding on the topic.

As we begin a new year with new employees and new job descriptions, are there new training needs within your organisation? Are you a supervisor or manager than can see gaps in employee skill sets?

Overcoming the Fear of Failure

By |December 19th, 2014|Leadership, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, School of Business, School of Civil, Construction, Mining, School of Corporate Governance, School of Leadership, School of Local Goverment, School of Management, School of Online, Distance, School of Project Managment, Schools, Soft Skills, Training|

How often have you avoided tackling a job because you were afraid of not doing it well, or backed off a new initiative because you feared it might not succeed, or not accepted a speaking engagement because you were afraid of embarrassing yourself? Fear of failure is surprisingly common. But it is a fear that can be conquered, especially when you realise that it isn't failure that counts in life: it's what you can learn from the experience that matters. Heed this advice to help overcome your fear of failure... 1. Try not to be hard on yourself. If your company's aim was to make an annual profit of $100,000 and you managed a profit of only $78,000 - is that really failure? Failure is a relative term, depending on who is doing the measuring. 2. Set your own standards of success or failure. Success, or failure, is in many [...]

Whether you're just entering the workforce or have been entrenched for many years or are creating your own business, the world of work is an intrinsic part of all of our lives. And for a relative few, it's not all about the money. Our lives in the work world can take many transitions: As a teenager just entering the work world, it may be to earn enough money to buy a car, clothes, afford dates and for some, earn tuition into college. And along the way, discover if the type of work is one that appeals enough to continue, or indicates the need to try something else. For others, who have taken a chosen path through college and are preparing to enter the work world, their focus will be following their path into positions for which they've studied. Although it's just as possible that along the way, they may discover [...]

Do you ever feel like your career has stalled out? Do you see other people getting promoted while you're always passed by?  Maybe continuing education can help you jump-start your career. By taking additional courses and investing time and energy in your skills, you can show your employer how serious you are about your future. One of the wonderful things about continuing education is that everyone can profit from it. Learning additional skills and mastering new knowledge helps everyone. Employees who feel left behind in their careers can especially profit from learning skills that will make them infinitely more "promotable." Upper management often looks at continuing education classes as a sign that the employee is interested in his or her future. So if you want to get your career moving, consider your continuing education options. First, analyze the state of your career. What goals do you have for yourself? What [...]

These programs are just like any other type of educational program and many are even accredited by the same accreditation boards that accredit more traditional degree programs. There are two types of online training programs: continuing education [...]

How to put some FUN into your role as Manager!

Just because you're a manager, you don’t have to be all buttoned-down and grim. In fact, bringing a little levity to your role as a manager can make you and those around you more relaxed and effective. The best managers in any organisation aren't afraid to show the world that they have a sense of humour they enjoy using. Nor should you be. Humour is good for your career and for your health... 1. Know the value of humour to your own well-being. Many managers often underestimate the value of humour. Research has shown that it not only offers a most effective tool for engaging and relating to staff, but can also relieve stress, defuse a situation, promote trust and team bonding, restore our equilibrium, deflate our pomposity, reveal our essential humanity, offer us new perspectives, and help us to soar above the mundane in our job. It has been shown [...]

"Interviewers say it repeatedly: All other things being equal, they offer the job to the person who projects the greatest confidence during the interview. The total image you project, of course, will be dictated by your own personality and style - But it's critical to remember that being well prepared, being well-dressed, and following a carefully thought-out strategy will greatly enhance your confidence and give you a decided advantage in the interview." Beverly Davis & Genbevieve Brown, 'Your Interview Image', The Executive Educator. Viewpoint "The first five minutes of your interview are probably as important as all the rest of the time." Mitchell Posner in 'Executive Essentials'. Smile & ponder A candidate I once interviewed for a secretarial position could type 90 words per minute and take short-hand at 120 words per minute.

Effectively Dealing with Confrontation

"By bringing conflicts out into the open and overcoming them, we develop honest, forthright, and loving relationships with ourselves and others. We turn heat into light." Robert Bramson, 'Blaming isn't changing', in Jimmy Calano & Jeff Slazman, CareerTracking, Gower, Aldershot, 1988. Here's an idea During a confrontation, if you reach an impasse, consider calling in a third party, depending on the seriousness of the conflict: Experts are neutral third parties. Their responsibility is simple: to provide data, facts, and information that may help the involved parties improve their understanding of the objective issues in a dispute. Mediation is a process in which a third person helps the parties in conflict to collaborate. Mediators do this by listening, asking questions, and creating a supportive and constructive environment. Arbitration rulings may be binding or voluntary. You get an answer but since the involved parties don’t participate in the solution, they may be less [...]

How to Take the Heat out of Confrontation

Confrontations are unpleasant but inevitable. What is important is that they can provide valuable opportunities to identify and deal with problems that otherwise might have simmered undetected. But there is a technique to handle them constructively. When you find yourself in face-to-face confrontations, here is what you can do to defuse, resolve, and profit from that potentially explosive situation... 1. Make confrontation constructive. For a confrontation to become a beneficial episode, it should provide the following outcomes: The other person’s behaviour changes in the manner desired. The self-esteem of the other person is preserved. Your relationship with the other person remains intact. These outcomes can be realised if you remain objective about the other person’s undesirable behaviour, listen to the other person’s response, identify the effects, describe future expectations, and commit or agree to future behaviour. 2. Choose the time and place. Don’t fuel the fire by initiating any conflict in public. [...]

To get promoted, you must build what management consultant Daniel Johnson has called 'career equity', in that way establishing your 'professional net worth'. Career equity is achieved by developing, improving, and strengthening each of eight specific assets that will enhance your professional value in the management marketplace...1. Improve your knowledge and skills. To progress in your career, you need to assess your knowledge and skills to uncover any deficiencies. Work purposefully to remedy these weaknesses. Continue to learn. Participate in training and updating programs. Attend seminars and conferences to increas le your knowledge, to inform yourself of new trends, and to meet influential people in your field. Read regularly the books and journals of your profession. Creative ideas can be nurtured only by broad, up-to-date knowledge. 2. Strengthen your credentials. Most employers still value highly credentials earned through formal post-school education. This asset can also be strengthened through active [...]
