Advancement in most professions these days requires continuing self-development through formal coursework at recognised educational institutions. Such courses can be very expensive - sometimes running into tens of thousands of dollars. They are also very demanding in terms of your hopes, energy, and time. Drop-out rates can be as high as 30 percent. Many students persevere even though they admit they made the wrong choice. Further study is a major investment, so you would be wise to consider the following advice before choosing your program... 1. Focus on your own qualities. Consider first your personal motivations and hopes. Are you the type of individual who finds formal study hard work, or do you get enjoyment from such activity? Are you seeking specific understanding and skills to boost your future employment prospects, or will study be simply a way of keeping youself up to date, giving you a chance to [...]

Time is a constant. There are twenty-four hours in a day, no more, no less. The challenge is to maximise their use - and it’s possible, provided you approach the issue methodically. All accomplishment in life, other than that which results by accident, passes through three stages - the goal, the plan, and the action. By maintaining this sequence, you can better organise yourself to squeeze more out of those twenty-four hours... 1. Identify what is strategic - to you. Know exactly why you’re doing what you’re doing. Identify strategic issues - the essentials of your job or the main reasons why you are employed in your current position - and isolate them from those that are non-strategic. An excessive number, more than six, say, indicates that you need to clarify your role description. Free yourself of the non-strategic issues: eliminate or reduce them significantly - usually by delegating. 2. [...]

Career Planning...what is it? How do we do it? Whether you are about to graduate from college, or want to change jobs at a later point in life, career planning is a very important aspect of the process.  Before you actually start applying for positions, it is essential to be certain of the areas you would like to work in.  The worst thing that could happen is not to take any steps in the career planning process, and end up in a job that you are unhappy with, or do not have the proper skill set for.

You've heard it before...NEVER GIVE UP! But how does one practically keep going when the odds seem against them? Explore the facets of giving up and the potential rewards of sticking through the difficult times... What’s this to do with business anyway? Some will ask – “What’s a heading like this got to do with business? The answer is - everything. One of the largest network marketing organisations in the world has a tape, which they give to their employees and agents entitled “Never Quit”. The essence of the message on the tape is that if you don’t quit, you’ll make it. That should be the quote displayed on every businessperson’s desk. When you think about it, if you never quit you will make it. Many people in business have quit or have felt a failure simply because they did not believe they could succeed. They lacked faith in themselves [...]

Choosing a Career for Your Personality

By |2019-09-27T13:04:24+10:00September 22nd, 2014|Qualifications, Schools, Shortcourses, Soft Skills, Training|

Choosing a career path is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make—but how do you decide what is right for you? You may take a career path that uses the skills you have or the education you’ve gotten. You may even choose a career based on what you think you “should” do—because of what your parents or teachers have told you is right for you.  But you may not know that you are naturally more suited for some careers than for others. Why? Each of us has an individual personality type that affects how much we’ll like a job. Think, for instance, about a carpenter versus a counselor. A carpenter works with concrete objects, according to specified procedures, and has a tangible result. A counselor works with people and their feelings; she has to judge success and the results of her work based on abstract concepts. Which of [...]

Did you go to work today and wish that you were doing something different? Have you been looking at online courses and dreaming of a change? Maybe it's time you thought seriously about a career change! Did you know that the average person changes their career six times in their working life? There are many different reasons why a person would decide to switch careers- they may be laid off at their current job, a dream job may come along, people in a committed relationship may find themselves having to consider new prospects due to a change in location of the job of the other partner, or someone may just become plain bored in their current career, to the point where it feels like there is no point to the day. Career changes are not a bad thing, but they need to be planned according to the circumstances of your [...]

"You have value when you meet customers’ needs. You can count on those needs changing and, because they do, you have to change the way you do business—or your value will migrate to someone else!.” Adrian Slywotsky in Value Migration: How to Think Several Moves Ahead of the Competition What is your USP? Why should your customers do business with you? What makes you unique? What is your Unique Selling Point (USP) – that advantage you promote in all your marketing? These questions should identify a product or service that the customer can’t get anywhere else and should be the flag under which you advance your sales and marketing efforts. When the issue is USP, you could consider… • Your USP may be that you maintain service 24/7. • It may be that you provide more practical information and advice than anyone else. • It may be that you have everything in stock [...]

In our last blog post we discussed the importance and value of learning to say no! As managers, employees and humans functioning in our every day lives, saying no can be difficult. If you need further inspiration and excitement about the possibility of saying no...here are a few more anecdotes and facts. Liberate yourself! Here's an idea Actor Paul Newman was once having a late lunch in a nearly empty restaurant with his actress wife, Joanne Woodward. They dined uninterrupted but, finishing their meal, they were approached by a man who asked Newman for an autograph. ‘Sorry, but that’s not something I do,’ was the actor’s polite but firm reply. Some people find it difficult to say ‘no’. But it’s something you have the right to do.

How to Show Entrepreneurial Flair!

An entrepreneur is someone who sees an opportunity and creates the organisational structures to pursue it. The entrepreneurial process involves all of the functions, activities, and actions associated with pursuing that opportunity. If you decide to establish your own business or remain where you are, entrepreneurial behaviour can be learnt and used to strengthen your existing management skills - even open new doors for you. Here’s how to sharpen your entrepreneurial skills... "Entrepreneurship is not a personality trait. Entrepreneurs see change as the norm and as healthy. Usually they do not bring about change themselves. The entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity." Peter Drucker, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Heinemann, 1985, p.23 1. Develop appropriate personal attributes. Though entrepreneurs come from a wide variety of backgrounds, the literature can provide an accurate picture of these innovative types. Wayne Bygraves in 'Portable MBA in Entrepreneurship' refers to [...]
