Maybe you are required to receive additional training for your current job, or you are looking for additional training and education in order to get a promotion or another job altogether. As an adult, there are many reasons to continue your education, and there are just as many issues and obstacles that might arise in striving to do so. In continuing your education as an adult, you might consider taking courses online in order to offset some of those issues. Going through the process of earning a college degree can be a long-term commitment of 4 or more years. If you are employed and/or have a family, [...]

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 [...]

One of the outcomes of the events of September 11, 2001, has been increased attention on video conferencing as a means of eliminating or reducing the need to travel. The issue of safety has been added to the previous cost-benefits of reduced travelling time and costs; time can be spent more productively. Increasingly, these benefits have made video conferencing more popular as a means of bringing people together - across the country and around the world. Here’s how to make sure you derive maximum value from your next video conference... 1. Arrange service provision. Video conferencing is a flexible medium facilitated by satellite, broadcast, or cable signals. In addition, web conferencing can be adapted to mini-conferencing by incorporating digital cameras.

An entrepreneur is someone who sees an opportunity and creates the organisational structures to pursue it. The entrepreneurial process involves all of the functions, activities, and actions associated with pursuing that opportunity. If you decide to establish your own business or remain where you are, entrepreneurial behaviour can be learnt and used to strengthen your existing management skills - even open new doors for you. Here’s how to sharpen your entrepreneurial skills... "Entrepreneurship is not a personality trait. Entrepreneurs see change as the norm and as healthy. Usually they do not bring about change themselves. The entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity." Peter Drucker, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Heinemann, 1985, p.23 1. Develop appropriate personal attributes. Though entrepreneurs come from a wide variety of backgrounds, the literature can provide an accurate picture of these innovative types. Wayne Bygraves in 'Portable MBA in Entrepreneurship' refers to [...]

How to Develop Emotional Intelligence

By |2019-09-27T13:04:54+10:00May 19th, 2014|Leadership, 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, Shortcourses, Soft Skills|

Our emotions provide us with valuable information about ourselves, others, and situations. From frustration to contentment, from anger to elation, we confront these varying emotions daily in the workplace. The key is to use our emotions intelligently - by being aware of their presence and intentionally using them to guide our behaviour to enhance our situation. This process comprises two elements, says Hendrie Weisinger in 'Emotional Intelligence at Work' - first (considered here), we need to understand our emotions and develop self-awareness and, second, we must know how to manage those emotions to best advantage in the workplace. 1. Understand the meaning of emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is ‘the ability to monitor one’s own and other people’s feelings and emotions, to discriminate among them, and to use this information to guide one’s thinking and action’. For example, if a client drives you crazy to the point of anger, do you shout [...]

In our last blog post we explored some simple steps that you can take to organise others and save yourself time. Here are a few more handy tips and tricks based around this very important topic. The more time we save the more successful we can be! Here's an idea How many times have you been on an important phone call when a colleague comes into your office (or lingers beside your desk), stands there, and waits for you to finish the call so s/he can tell you something? This, of course, is distracting - if not discourteous, to you and can destroy your focus during the call. And, of course, your colleague is wasting his/her time waiting for you to finish. The solution? Keep a pad of paper and a pen on the corner of your desk. Every time this situation occurs, push the pad over to the person [...]

How to Delegate Effectively

Managers get things done through other people. They delegate primarily because it makes their job easier. If they try to do everything themselves, they become unnecessarily burdened; their performance and health deteriorate; they fail to develop their staff adequately; and, in time, the organisation will suffer. Indeed, many writers believe that the ability to delegate is the main distinguishing feature between good and bad managers. Knowing how to delegate is a crucial management and leadership skill... 1. From your prioritised jobs, select one to delegate. List in priority order those tasks you might consider delegating. To qualify for this list, a task should be taking too much of your time, be not strictly related to your key role, be rather routine, be appropriate and challenging for another staff member, or be better undertaken by someone with more appropriate skills or know-how than yours. The purpose of delegating is not just [...]
