If only we lived in a world where we never made mistakes! We don’t, of course, and managers are no different. As we do err, success will come to those who learn to turn their goofs into gold. The golden rule is never ignore your mistakes – if you do, you will probably repeat them. In short, it is no crime to err; the crime is not to learn from the mistake and not to improve as a result. Turn your goofs into gold by considering the following advice… 1. Admit your mistake. Never ignore a mistake or try to cover it up. Confession can be good for the soul.In management, it can sometimes be a very effective strategy. Unless the mistake is catastrophic, a manager has little to lose by admitting an error. In fact, you will gain the respect of staff. By admitting your error, you lend credibility [...]

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 [...]

It was the Roman philosopher Epictetus (50-130) who said. ‘Your will is always within your power. Nothing really stops you. Nothing holds you back, for your own will is always within your control’. Epictetus’s message is particularly relevant today when addressing the issue is ‘change’. You can change if you want to change! Old ways of doing things don’t always work. Be prepared to try new approaches and find new ways to work and to live your life. Here are some approaches to consider. 1. Change the way you think. Constant adaptation to an ever-changing environment is critical for successful people. The invention of the micro-chip (c. 1965) has changed forever the potential for change and the speed at which it occurs. According to Downes and Mui (Unleashing the Killer App, Harvard Business School Press, 1998), the micro-chip has contributed significantly to unleashing what they call ‘the killer app’. We [...]

In our last blog post we discussed how to bring about change in your workplace. We've compiled a few extra quotes with suggestions to inspire and prepare you even more in this area of management. What do you think? "People don’t like change, we’re told - but don’t believe it. People neither like nor dislike change. They are concerned, however, about the possible results of that change. They will like the change if you create basic, concrete, gut-level benefits for them in it. That means doing such things as getting out accurate information about the changes, and when they begin, making a ceremony out of each milestone, all the time making certain your staff will benefit, and understand the benefits." ~ US management consultant, Karl Albrecht Something to Muse Over: Machiavelli who warned us about trying to change things: "There is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful [...]

Planning for change can occupy a great deal of a manager's time and energy, but it is not a process that can be left to chance: it can be tricky and disruptive if handled badly. Whether implementing a new job-rotation scheme, rearranging the office layout, introducing new technology, relocating your manufacturing operations, or anything else, a manager must use a preliminary, systematic planning approach to bring about successful change later... It's easy to feel like this when trying to implement change in your workplace... 1. Be convinced that change is necessary. Are you sure that the intended change is sound and that there is every likelihood it will succeed? Is it practical, ethical, cost-effective? Will it solve more problems than it will create? Is it based on untested theory or speculation, on fashion, or a whim? Are the risks acceptable? Has it proven successful elsewhere? Can you specifically identify [...]
