By |September 24th, 2014|Leadership, Qualifications, Schools, Shortcourses, Soft Skills|

Need to Gain More Skills? Online training could be just what you need! Earning one of the many available accredited online qualifications enables you to graduate from some of the nation's highest ranked training colleges without ever leaving your home state. Graduating with a bachelor's degree or certificate from a Registered Training Organisation by going through any of their online courses is equal to attending class on their physical campus, except you can live at home, and keep your full time job. Many adults are working professionals who struggle balancing family, work and other obligations or commitments. However, with technological advancements in the last decade in education online, many are choosing to earn their accredited online qualifications simply because they can do so without being constrained to the restrictions associated with a classroom based program. You can now obtain a high-quality and prestigious accredited degree online. With so many accredited [...]

"As a manager you will play a crucial role in building the team, and then in maintaining its effectiveness. Some of this team-building work will be high-profile and visible, but much of it will be behind the scenes, self-effacing work that receives no recognition and often little credit - your reward will be the private knowledge that without such work the team would not be so effective." R.Kemp & M. Nathan, Middle Management in Schools, Blackwell Education, Oxford, 1989, p.138. Don't forget To build team unity, ‘America’s Life Coach’ Ron Jenson says you must: Uplift one another. Need one another. Openly relate to one another. Trust one another. Yield to one another. Team unity is all about: Giving up my own agenda to develop a better one. Combining my uniqueness with another person or a group of people, to create something new. Choosing to be more excited about the success [...]

More Tips on Speech Preparation!

In our last blog post we went through a step-by-step process of preparing to make a speech. Here are a few more ideas that may help you next time! Don't forget Less is best - the more you say, the less your audience will remember… Be appropriately brief. Research shows that today’s audiences have an attention span of just on 18 minutes - the period between commercials on prime -time television! Push a single concept. The podium is no place for multiple messages and muddled meanderings.   Smile & ponder Max Walker, former Australian test cricketer turned author and public speaker, says one of his worst experiences with public speaking was when he expected to be addressing a hundred blind people - and arrived to find a hall full of deaf people instead! ‘Imagine. I’m trying to be funny on some bloke’s fingers and all the laughs are coming back [...]

In our last blog post we discussed some step by steps to delivering a memorable speech. Here are some more tips to take with you next time you have to make an important speech! "Become interested enough in your audience that your prime concern is how to get your message from you to them. When you think more about how you are going to put your message across and less about what people will think of you, you will end up a better communicator. So allow yourself to release your energy in a positive way." Lou Hampton, quoted in Jeffrey Davidson, Blow your Own Horn, AMACOM, NY, 1987, p. 156. Here's an idea Many amateur speakers make two mistakes: They skip their vision around the room, trying to make eye contact with everyone; and When coming to a break in thought, they fill in the gaps with ‘um’ or ‘ah’.

How to Deliver a Memorable Speech

By |October 16th, 2013|Leadership, Qualifications, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, School of Business, School of Civil, Construction, Mining, School of Leadership, School of Management, School of Online, Distance, School of Project Managment, Schools, Shortcourses, Soft Skills|

From time to time, you may be required to speak to audiences of various sizes to inform, inspire, persuade, affect decisions, or stimulate action. Internally, you may find yourself speaking to a group of employees or colleagues; externally, you may address a community group, the press, or a service organisation. Of course, preparation is vital; but a poorly delivered speech can ruin weeks of careful groundwork. If you want to deliver an effective speech, then consider these key elements... 1. Try to control nervousness. Top speakers are never free of nervous tension before their presentations - studies have shown that even pros like Bob Hope and Johnny Carson had increased heart rates just before they started their monologues; but those rates quickly returned to normal once the speakers were into their deliveries. Nerves are part of a good performance. Accept them. As well, learn to ease the tension through the process [...]

Helpful Tips on Decision Making

By |October 9th, 2013|Leadership, Qualifications, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, School of Business, School of Leadership, School of Management, School of Project Managment, Schools, Shortcourses, Soft Skills|

"In general, we make decisions more intelligently by examining as many alternatives as is reasonable and then deciding on the best of them… But making a decision rationally does not guarantee that it will be a good one or that it is better than some other decision. It does, however, increase the probability that it will be a good one." Robert Fitzgibbons in Making Educational Decisions. Research says According to a study by the University of Southern California, decision making is easier and about 20% faster when standing rather than sitting. A general observation was that respondents were prone to action when they stood. The research found that the heart rate increases by 10 beats per minute when standing and this may stimulate the brain to work faster. So, when faced with a difficult issue at work, stand and walk around periodically, taking deep breaths to increase the oxygen intake, to [...]

Decisions Decisions…

"The best way to make a decision is to do your worrying before you place your bet. In other words, do everything you can to first make sure the right decision is made. But once you've made that decision and execution is the order of the day, then stop worrying and fretting about the outcome." (James Van Fleet in 'The 22 Biggest Mistakes Managers Make'.) Make it easier to decide Most of us are faced with hundreds of decisions a day and the choices we make can affect our lives and others' lives, too. Consider these steps to make the decision-making process less traumatic: Frame the 'question' requiring a decision positively. In their book, 'Decision Traps', Russo and Shoemaker noted that, when managers were told that a certain corporate strategy had a 70 per cent chance of success, most favoured it. But when the strategy was described as carrying a 30 [...]

More on Problem Solving

In our last blog post we discussed a step by step plan to solve major problems. Here are some extra tips and hints we found amusing and helpful! Smile & ponder A young boy had a pair of squeaky black shoes. The noise drove him crazy. His father told him to soak the shoes all night long in a bucket of water. In the morning, the water was black and the shoes no longer squeaked. The young boy concluded that, by getting rid of the black, he got rid of the squeak. The moral of the story is that, when trying to solve a problem, make sure you don’t reach the wrong conclusion. […]

How to Solve a Major Problem

By |September 27th, 2013|Leadership, School of Business, School of Corporate Governance, School of Leadership, Schools, Soft Skills|

Managers are faced with a never-ending flow of problems - deviations from the norm. During the course of a week, hundreds of spontaneous, minor problems are usually tackled with the minimum of fuss, using years of accumulated knowledge and experience. At times, however, a major problem will arise. On such occasions, the wise manager uses a classic problem-solving strategy, one of which is outlined here. When you have a serious problem to grapple with, try following these nine steps... 1. Identify the symptoms. When you sense that trouble is brewing in your organisation, it's usually the symptoms of a problem that surface first - bickering among employees, equipment breakdowns, changes in behaviour patterns, uneven performance, poor attendance at staff meetings, missing petty cash, litter… These symptoms can indicate a major problem lurking below the surface. 2. Define the problem. You're aware of the symptoms - now try to define the problem. Be [...]
