Never Give Up: Part 1

By |October 22nd, 2014|Leadership, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, School of Business, Schools, Soft Skills, Training|

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 [...]

How to get more out of your Business

By |September 1st, 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, Soft Skills, Training|

Whether a business is big or small, you own it, manage it, or are the owner-manager, you’re always on the lookout for ways to increase its profitability. The consensus among respected writers in the field of business growth and profitability is that there are ways to get more out of a business—to make it grow and prosper. Here are some of those strategies... 1. Know what business you’re in. Even though the importance of knowing the nature of your business sounds straightforward, a significantly large proportion of businesses have never addressed this important issue. Even seemingly similar businesses may vary when it comes to defining their nature. Boeing makes planes, Qantas is in the transport and travel businesses, and Virgin Blue is in the hospitality business transporting people to their tourist and business destinations. The Ford family of the Ford Motor Company and its then CEO Jacques Nasser disagreed on the [...]

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 [...]

Vision Equals Success

By |April 2nd, 2014|Leadership, Online Short Courses, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Diploma, School of Business, School of Corporate Governance, School of Leadership, School of Management, Schools, Shortcourses, Soft Skills, Training|

"We shall not cease from exploration, And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time." T.S.Eliot, Four Quarters. In our last blog post we discussed the value of vision and how powerful it is for an organisation to have a strong vision. In this blog post we have compiled some facts, tips and anecdotes for you to enjoy that will continue to give us an understanding about building a vision for our organisations. Smile & ponder Someone once said that doers get to the top of the oak tree by climbing it. Dreamers sit on an acorn. While arriving at and articulating your vision requires more than simply dreaming, in the long run the vision will only become a reality through action - and that will require climbing, not sitting! It's a fact On 6 June 1844, George [...]

Developing Staff through Delegation

By |February 7th, 2014|Leadership, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, School of Business, School of Leadership, School of Management, Soft Skills, Training, Uncategorized|

In our last blog post we discussed some simple steps towards effective delegation. We've compiled a few extra tips, stories and suggestions to equip you even more in this area of management.  "Delegation is difficult. It is perhaps the hardest thing that managers have to do. The problem is getting the balance right between delegating too much or too little and between over- or under-supervision. When you give someone something to do you have to make sure that it gets done. And you have to do that without breathing down his (or her) neck, wasting your time and his, and getting in the way. There has to be trust as well as guidance and supervision." Michael Armstrong, How to be an Even Better Manager, Kogan Page, London, 1988, p. 118. Here's an idea Leadership skills are becoming more important in the workplace - and not just for managers. As organisational structures [...]

How to use Delegation to Develop Your Staff

By |February 5th, 2014|Leadership, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, School of Business, School of Leadership, School of Management, Soft Skills, Training, Uncategorized|

In a nutshell, managers need to delegate to get things done. But, if used wisely, delegation has additional advantages. It can enrich the work of your staff, develop their management skills, instil in them a sense of commitment to the organisation’s goals, reveal to you their previously undisclosed talents, and prepare them for advancement. Delegation can indeed be a rewarding tool for staff development - provided you adhere to a number of important principles... Do you sometimes feel like this? 1. Try not to delegate only to the most capable people. Resist the temptation to delegate only to the most capable staff members. Certainly the strong will get stronger - but the weak will only get weaker. By distributing assignments widely, you will be building a team of versatile performers and a handy group to have when emergencies arise. When delegating to someone who has less than ideal experience, [...]

Building Other People’s Confidence in You

Understanding the meaning of trust allows you to work toward being a trusted and trusting person… But trust can’t be won overnight. Trust must be carefully constructed, vigor-ously nurtured, and constantly reinforced. Trust is established over time, gradually, through a long chain of successful experiences. In the early stages of relationships, whether personal or business, we extend ourselves in small ways and observe the responses to our actions. Then we take appropriate action, withdrawing, maintaining our behaviour, or extending ourselves a bit further each time until trust is established. And remember that, although trust takes a long time to develop, it can be destroyed by a single action. Moreover, once lost it is very difficult to re-establish. Frank Sonnenberg in Managing with a Conscience. It's great to have people put their confidence in you! In our last blog post we discussed some ideas of how to build other people's [...]

Confidence has long been recognised as a desirable - if not essential - life quality. A recent study in the United States, for example, identified ‘confidence’ as the one quality women found most attractive in men. A great deal of research and writing, therefore, has been devoted to identifying ways of building self-confidence. But attention also needs to be devoted to how to build others’ confidence in you - your effectiveness and success rely on it. Here’s how to help others to become confident in you... We need to have confidence in ourselves to begin the process of gaining other people's confidence! 1. Focus on building relationships. Tom Peters is attributed with saying ‘Business is a series of relationships between people’. In fact, relationship building has become a key value-adding activity - the better the relationships, the better the business. To build and maintain the desired relationships, four behaviours [...]

Are you a management, supervisor or employer? Are you looking to push new boundaries within your organisation this year? Are you wanting to take your business to the next level? We may have just the right advice for you as you plan the year ahead! Organisations that place a high value on training their employees are often the most successful and thriving companies.

Employees appreciate the opportunity to do something out of their normal routine that stimulates their thinking in a new way and formalises the skills they are developing in their everyday jobs. Training only increases employee motivation and inspires them to take on more responsibility and challenges. Here are some tips for employees wanting to support [...]
