We recently spotted a great article on rediscovering your career passion which we thought we'd share! Passion is a vital piece of a satisfying career. Ask yourself the following questions and see whether you are where you need to be! Do you ever feel like you’ve lost touch with the enthusiasm and passion you once felt about your career? Remember when you were just starting-out at your first job, or you were a recent graduate? You probably thought that any job would be available to you; that every employer would want to hire you. You were excited about your prospects and believed that you had something wonderful to share. But now that you’ve been in the work-world for quite a while, and have had a series of jobs with several different companies, have you become cynical or resigned in your work-attitude? Are you unsure as to which direction to turn [...]

In this blog, we are continuing along the theme of success by 'Never Giving Up'. This concept is often easier said than done, however, it is vital for your success. If it doesn’t work These are basic principles that you can apply in business any time you feel it’s not worth going on. Remember - Never giving up doesn’t mean keeping on doing the same thing when it doesn’t work. It means keeping on working towards your goal no matter what and learning from your failures and getting smarter and better each time. So, if you are in business remember to shake it off and step up out of the “well” that we find ourselves in sometimes, whether business or financial. Don’t repeat mistakes We need to stop beating up on ourselves. Everyone has a past that they would like to change but that can’t be done so it should [...]

Have you ever felt stuck in your career?  Employee stress and burn out can account for a lot of dissatisfaction in your life.  After all, you are at work some 8 hours a day or more.  That’s 1/3 of your day if you don’t count sleep.  That’s a long time to be dissatisfied. If you feel stuck, here are 6 great ways to find your ideal career:    1.   Brainstorm on a sheet of paper - I’ve talked about this before and it’s a strategy I use all the time.  Take a pad of paper and write down at the top your objective in question form.  Then, simply list out 20 answers to your question.  For example, you could write “What should I be doing with my time and life?”  Then stay seated for a half hour to an hour coming up with answers to that question.  The key to [...]

What do employers look for in potential employees? That was the question that was posted recently on a career discussion forum online. Naturally, for each different position, the answers to that question would be different. However, there are some common skills that employers look for in all employees, whether the employee happens to be a network engineer or a fry cook. In-Demand Skills for Success 1. BASIC SKILLS Reading, writing and arithmetic! Believe it or not, a good portion of high school graduates (and some college grads) do not read at an 8th grade level and cannot do multiplication in their head. Employers are seeking employees who can read well, can write coherently, and who can calculate mathematics in a business environment (fractions, percentages, etc.) Add to that the modern basic skills of keyboarding skills, basic computer knowledge, and the ability to use most computerized tools (e.g. fax machine, basic [...]

Saying No to the Fear of Failure!

"The worst possible outcome of trying a work task and then failing is probably transient embarrassment. You might be embarrassed for a while, but that will fade. The residue hopefully will be a valuable learning experience. Trial-and-error learning is a time-honoured process and one familiar to most successful people." Fred Orr, How to Succeed at Work, Unwin, Sydney, 1987, p.30. It's a fact When the famous inventor Thomas Alva Edison wanted to make a nickel iron alkaline battery, we are told he performed 50,000 experiments, and failed 50,000 times. Someone who knew about this asked if all these failures had disappointed him. ‘Not at all,’ replied Edison, ‘for I have learned 50,000 ways it cannot be done, and therefore I am 50,000 times nearer the final experiment!’ And, of course, he eventually did succeed. His failures were simply stepping stones to success.   "You measure the size of an accomplishment by [...]

Job interviews are a critical step in the achievement of a job offer. Your resume might be outstanding and your experience second to none...but if there isn't chemistry in the job interview, you may miss out on the job. Here are a few more tips and hints on what you should expect when arriving at a job interview and how to make sure that you give it everything you've got! Be prepared for these questions 'Never go into a job interview,' says Mitchell Posner in 'Executive Essentials', 'without knowing clearly your answers to these questions'… An icebreaker question: e.g. So, what do you think of this weather we're having? What was your last job? Why did you leave? What did you like about your past jobs? What did you hate? Those were your duties. What were your achievements? Tell me about yourself (Watch for raised eyebrows.) Now I know your [...]

How to Model Yourself on Successful People

By |2019-09-27T13:04:46+10:00June 2nd, 2014|Leadership, 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, Shortcourses, Soft Skills, Training|

Successful people have three things in common: they know where they are now; they know where they want to be; and they move further along the connecting path each day. Their actions become the key determinants of their success. The accumulated messages of their biographies and autobiographies provide added insights into their personal qualities, offering models for you to emulate as you set and chart your own path. Here are those qualities and the actions required... 1. Know where you’re going. Knowing where you’re going is part of the success story. Although your vision will encounter setbacks (we’re told envisaged futures usually have less than a 70 per cent chance of being achieved), visions help to transform possibilities into realities. As the saying goes, ‘If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll finish up somewhere else.’ 2. Believe in yourself. Successful people believe in themselves, confident in the knowledge that they can [...]

"It's essential for job survival that you keep up with the latest developments in your field. You must not only be on the cutting edge of technology and other developments but also ensure, as team leader, that your team members are trained in those areas… When continued learning is an integral part of a company's culture, employees seek out opportunities to hone their skills - not just to do today's job but also to meet tomorrow's challenges." Arthur Pell, Managing People, Alpha Books, New York, 1999, p. 120. Do you feel as though further study would help you become more indispensable within your current position or organisation? In our last blog post we discussed how to go about choosing the right study option for you.

"Achievers have one crucial characteristic in common: they are constantly looking for new ways to impact their environment. The initiator knows that there are dozens of opportunities to initiate in every organisation. It's a way of looking at the world that spawns not only major breakthroughs, but a steady stream of small gains (which in retrospect often look like breakthroughs). When you decide to initiate, you become a player instead of a spectator. And though taking initiative certainly has its material rewards, the good feelings of accomplishment and control over your life are even better." Jimmy Calano & Jeff Salzman, CareerTracking, Gower, Aldershot, 1988, p.21. As we took a look at our goals from the start of the year in our last blog post, we wanted to share some inspiring stories with you about people who really did take initiative and didn't let anything hold them back.

In our last few blog posts we've been looking at body language and how it is a vital part of communication with others. Here are some more tips and hints.   Status in the office Consider the use of certain objects strategically placed around your office. They can be subtly used non-verbally to increase your status and power. Body language guru Allan Pease says we should give a little thought to the nonverbal gymnastics of our offices by, for example: Installing low sofas for visitors to sit on Locating a pen container from overseas on your desk Leave some red folders on the desk marked 'Strictly Confidential' Cover a wall with photos, awards or qualifications that you have received Have a slim briefcase (Large, bulky brief cases, he says, are carried by those who do all the work.) Make sure the height of the back of your chair is higher [...]

Abraham Lincoln on Motivating Others

In our last two blog posts we have discussed motivating employees. We found a few more excerpts that we found interesting and thought we'd share with you...you never know who will find the gold in these little nuggets! It's a fact President Lincoln, when told that General Ulysses S. Grant had a drinking problem, and well aware that Grant was his only winning general, replied: ‘If I knew his brand, I’d send a barrel to the other generals.’ According to Peter Drucker, each of us is abundantly endowed with failings and weaknesses. ‘The effective executive is as hidebound as everyone else,’ says Drucker. ‘He differs, though, in that he is willing to ignore individual weaknesses, including his own, and focus instead on bringing out people’s strengths. He concentrates on what they can do, not what they can’t, as his criterion.’ Which is why, if you want to get the most [...]
