Your company”s visual image is often the first impression you give your customer or client; it should therefore be a good one. Your logo, product brochures, signs, letterheads, business cards, leaflets, newsletters, newspaper advertisements – all should have impact and increase sales. But, to be effective, such visual images must be eye-catching and professional; and the best way to achieve this result is to engage a graphic designer. The following suggestions will assist you to make the right decision… 1. Resist the temptation to do it yourself. Graphic design is a professional activity and it cannot be done on the cheap. Despite the inroads of desktop technology, while many people in your organisation may be able to work a computer, few have the necessary design skills. Nor do local printers; while they employ in-house designers, their work is often dull and unexceptional. Remember, your visual image is something you will [...]

Succession planning has come a long way from the days when it usually meant simply putting names in boxes on organisation charts. Effective succession planning has evolved to a process by which successors are identified for key positions, and career development and associated activities are planned accordingly. Here are the key steps in developing an effective succession plan... 1. Decide on the depth of your succession plan. Although the most common model for corporate succession planning focuses on the most senior jobs in the organisation (the top two or three tiers), a broader-based model where a similar philosophy and processes are applied to a much larger population (managerial, professional, and administration) is becoming popular. Sustaining the devolved model will require continued support of a committed management, so that identified successors will embrace the priority given to this process. 2. Identify the specific qualities you seek in suitable candidates. Whatever you [...]

The press and broadcasting media can offer great opportunities to publicise a positive aspect of your organisation. They can also cause problems and create embarrassment when they find that something has gone wrong. These are the two sides of the media coin - and you must be prepared for both. So you could find yourself talking to journalists when you send out a press release and the media respond to it, or when the media themselves have nosed out a story about your company. Are you prepared to cope with such interviews? The following suggestions will help... 1. Know the medium. When providing an interview for any medium, it's important to know its peculiarities. Newspapers cover stories in greater depth, need more backgound material, and seek human-interest items with local angles. Television newsrooms rarely send crews on good-news stories without first making an appointment; but they can disconcertingly arrive unannounced [...]

"Nothing can move your career further and faster than having a base of associates positioned to support you in your goals. Conversely, few things feel better than using your talents to help others achieve their goals. Once considered informal, unstructured and random, networking is now viewed as an essential way of developing professional relationships. It keeps you in touch by connecting you to new people and information. It is one of the highest forms of collaboration." Jimmy Calano & Jeff Salzman, CareerTracking, Gower, Aldershot, 1988, p. 244. Here's an idea One of the hardest things to do at a conference or workshop is to start talking to people you’ve never met before. Here’s a strategy for making this easier: The coffee or lunch queue is a good place to begin. Usually there are at least half a dozen people waiting in line. Strike up a conversation with someone in the line, [...]
