8 simple steps to gaining a promotion Getting promoted means going beyond the job description. 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 assets that will enhance your professional value in the management marketplace. Here are 8 simple steps to gaining a promotion that you can start implementing today... 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 increase 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. [...]

11 Ways You Can Tackle Priorities

By |July 24th, 2020|Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, School of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander Leadership, 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|

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 – [...]

11 ways to Communicate Effectively at work

By |July 11th, 2020|Leadership, Online Short Courses, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, Resources, School of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander Leadership, School of Business, School of Corporate Governance, School of Leadership, School of Local Goverment, School of Management, School of Online, Distance, School of Project Managment, Schools, Short Courses, Shortcourses, Soft Skills, Target Markets, Target Markets, Training, Workshops|

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 [...]

The Secret to Getting the Most Out of Networking

Networking is a process that exposes you to new people, new ideas, and new ways of looking at things. Importantly, it can increase your visibility and advance your career prospects. But the creation of this structure of valuable personal interrelationships won’t just happen. You have to develop this network of organisational contacts for yourself – and here’s how you can do so… 1. Be aware of the benefits of networking. Although networking can be a very time-consuming activity, its benefits can be very rewarding to you professionally. It can: help you learn from an increasing range of contacts with whom you can share ideas, advice, and strategies. provide you with referrals for a variety of needs. A good network will always know somebody who can help you. supply you with a sounding board to test your ideas, provide feedback, let off steam, or discuss problems. promote your career as you [...]

8 Steps to Get Rid of Your Bad Habits

By |November 11th, 2015|Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, School of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander Leadership, 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|

Habits get a ‘bad’ name when those dispositions to act in a certain way have negative effects on you and others. Consistently being late for meetings, for example, becomes a bad habit when your reputation is damaged and those with whom you are scheduled to meet are adversely affected. Getting rid of bad habits is rarely a straightforward process. If bad habits – smoking, procrastination, perfectionism, gambling, time-wasting, and the like – are getting in the way of the achievement of your life and career goals, here are some key considerations… 1. Decide which habits you seriously want to change. Acknowledging that you have bad habits because others say so won’t change you for the better in the long term. Through embarrassment, you may clean up your messy desk because your colleague comments on it, but it will soon get messy again unless you change your behaviour. Ultimately, you will [...]

How Self-Discipline Reaps Success

What comes to mind when you hear the word self-discipline? It can often sound like a negative term where we visualise ourselves chained to a desk for days on end, or forcing ourselves to do 100 push-ups a day (Ouch!). Perhaps we need to change our view about self-discipline? Self-discipline stretches our will power, work ethic and persistence muscles. Sounds like the muscles we need for success…Interesting. Self-discipline gives you more control over your day, projects, work situation and family life so that instead of scrabbling to meet ends with all areas of your life, you are able to regulate yourself and achieve excellence. It promotes time management and effective planning so that the goals you need to meet are achieved. At Global Training Institute we ensure that when you are completing a qualification with us, you are able to plan it into your life in a constructive and effective [...]

Time-management invariably focuses on self – how you organise your day, your papers, your workload. But how well do your staff members use their time to benefit the organisation, you, and themselves? Do you really know whether they, and you, are getting full value? Your staff can save your time and theirs if you take the initiative and encourage them to be time-conscious… 1. Watch for the indicators of a disorganised staff. Watch for messages indicating that the time of the human component in your organisation is not being used to best advantage: You are frequently interrupted by staff seeking assistance, instruction, or direction. Your staff practises reverse delegation – referring tasks back to you. Deadlines are often missed or postponed. Staff assignments often need to be redone because of their poor quality. Your action tray is overflowing and you seem to be taking home more and more work. Staff morale [...]

The ability to express oneself clearly on paper and to write effective reports, memos, letters, and other business documents is one of a manager’s most important skills. But some managers find it difficult to write clearly, concisely, and convincingly. Others take far longer than necessary to complete a written assignment. No matter whether your task is a letter, memo, report or novel, you can become a better writer if you follow this advice… 1. Prepare yourself. Before you begin to write, consider these three key issues: Know precisely the purpose of your writing task. You must first be clear about the purpose of your task. Ask yourself: What do I want the reader to think, do, or know? The more specific you can be with your answers, the easier it will be for you to plan your writing. Know your reader. Reading is a solo activity, so you must imagine you are [...]

We all seem to have an innate desire to continue learning and growing so that we can become more knowledgeable, efficient human beings. As an employer, we should want this for our employees as well as ourselves. So how can we aid the growth process in employees? A report issued by the Centre for Creative Leadership in North Carolina identified five key experiences that help employees grow and develop. Provide jobs/assignments that are challenging.

How to Apply the Principles of Best Practice

In an age of increasing deregulation, technological change, and new competitive attitudes, organisations must become nationally - even internationally - competitive. To do so, it is essential to pursue ‘best practices’ - comprehensive, integrated, and cooperative approaches to the continuous improvement of all parts of an organisation’s operations. Leading-edge companies achieve world- class standards of performance in this way. Here are the general principles of best practice. Consider adopting them... 1. Develop a shared vision and strategic plan. Central to achieving best practice is a vision of world-class performance, shared by everyone in the organisation, translated into action through a strategic plan. 2. Ensure that your bosses are committed. Committed bosses are essential to drive and support change processes. And one of their key roles is not only to provide leadership but also to recognise and encourage leadership at all levels of the organisation. 3. Provide a flatter organisational structure. [...]

Cohesiveness holds a group together voluntarily. Staff will operate better as individuals if they consider themselves part of a well-functioning, supportive, and happy team. As committed participants in the group, they are more productive, communicative, trusting, motivated, and loyal. If you want to ensure your staff becomes a winning team, you should consider these suggestions to foster cohesiveness... 1. In Leadership Be aware of the features of a cohesive team. What are the characteristics of a team you are striving to establish? According to Douglas McGregor, the ideal team displays these features: The atmosphere is informal, comfortable, and relaxed. Everyone participates in discussions. Members listen to each other. Every idea is given an adequate airing. The goals of the group are understood and accepted by all. There is constructive disagreement. The group seeks resolution rather than domination of any dissenter. Decisions are reached by consensus. Criticism is frequent, frank, and [...]

Climbing the management ladder to success is not something to be left to chance. Unfortunately, there is no magic formula. In fact, no two management consultants would agree completely on any certain recipe for reaching the top job. They would agree, however, that, if you are ambitious to reach the top, then the best person to help you get there is yourself. So here are a few guidelines to help you on your way... 1. Be prepared. There are no better candidates for advancement than those who, while handling their own jobs in exemplary fashion, have also prepared themselves for the job above theirs. Keep close to the people whose job you want, for they often have much to say about their successors. 2. Attend seminars and training courses regularly. The sharpening of management skills through continuing education is essential for effective managers. Additionally, exposure to other managers at seminars [...]

Developing a Positive Mental Attitude

"After decades of quest, we now know that high achievers have a high degree of self-motivation. The enduring power that moves them to action comes from inside themselves. Success is not reserved for the talented. It is not in the high I.Q.. Not in the gifted birth. Not in the best equipment. Not even in ability. Success is almost totally dependent upon drive, focus, and persistence. The extra energy required to make an extra effort, to try another approach, to concentrate on the desired outcome, is the secret of winning. Out of desire come the energy and will to win. Get that urge to win! There's no time to lose."

Streamlining Objectives for Success

By |November 24th, 2014|Leadership, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, School of Business, School of Leadership, School of Management, School of Project Managment, Schools, Training|

To achieve a goal, there is a process that you should implement. This process is to streamline and analyze your objectives. Begin at the very beginning at the smallest, specific part. These are the most important steps to take to meet the guidelines. An objective is a way of knowing what action or plan is to be taken and identifying the expected results. This plan provides a set of directions so that making the decision will not be as complicated as when the goal is just being considered. Peter Ducker documented a book published in 1954 entitled Practiced Management wherein MBO which stands for Management by Objectives, was introduced. This is a program that consists of simple but very useful processes in order to meet commitments in an organization. Never worry, as this is also applicable to personal plans. MBO consists of 5 steps: 1. It should be SPECIFIC. It [...]

There are many reasons to pursue your education as an adult. You might feel motivated to do so for the simple desire to continue learning throughout your life.

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.
