8 simple steps to gaining a promotion Getting promoted means going beyond the job description. 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 assets that will enhance your professional value in the management marketplace. Here are 8 simple steps to gaining a promotion that you can start implementing today... 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 increase 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. [...]

11 Ways You Can Tackle Priorities

By |2020-07-24T10:59:53+10:00July 24th, 2020|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|

1. Address management problems first. Give top priority to any problem on your list that is making you ineffective as a manager. If, for example, you have a personal conflict with your superior or your personal assistant, your effectiveness in dealing with other priorities could be seriously hampered. Face such problems immediately; get them out in the open; and devise solutions quickly. 2. Group your priorities meaningfully. It is sometimes possible to prioritise your daily goals and save time and effort. For example, by postponing an inspection of new equipment in the factory block across the parking lot until after lunch, you might find that you can do so after a scheduled mid-afternoon meeting with the factory supervisor. You may even be able to accomplish a couple more of your goals for the day during that one trip. Sensible planning brings its time-saving rewards. 3. Do it – [...]

11 ways to Communicate Effectively at work

The term ‘communication’ now includes many activities associated with everyday organisational life - oral, face-to-face, formal, informal, personal, interpersonal, nonverbal, and written - which is why so many organisational headaches are attributed to ‘communication problems’. Indeed, a common finding of organisational reviews is that ‘communication needs to be improved’. We spend so much time ‘communicating’, but so few of us give much thought to the essentials of this key management activity... 1. Always work to establish rapport. Without the trust and confidence of others with whom you are communicating, much of what you say will be lost. It is imperative, therefore, that you take time to establish and build rapport. Knowing your audience is a vital part of this process. 2. Attract the attention of your target audience. It’s not what you communicate but how you do it. People are being bombarded with information and have become very [...]

The Secret to Getting the Most Out of Networking

Networking is a process that exposes you to new people, new ideas, and new ways of looking at things. Importantly, it can increase your visibility and advance your career prospects. But the creation of this structure of valuable personal interrelationships won’t just happen. You have to develop this network of organisational contacts for yourself – and here’s how you can do so… 1. Be aware of the benefits of networking. Although networking can be a very time-consuming activity, its benefits can be very rewarding to you professionally. It can: help you learn from an increasing range of contacts with whom you can share ideas, advice, and strategies. provide you with referrals for a variety of needs. A good network will always know somebody who can help you. supply you with a sounding board to test your ideas, provide feedback, let off steam, or discuss problems. promote your career as you [...]

8 Steps to Get Rid of Your Bad Habits

By |2019-09-27T13:02:50+10:00November 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 [...]

What comes to mind when you hear the word self-discipline? It can often sound like a negative term where we visualise ourselves chained to a desk for days on end, or forcing ourselves to do 100 push-ups a day (Ouch!). Perhaps we need to change our view about self-discipline? Self-discipline stretches our will power, work ethic and persistence muscles. Sounds like the muscles we need for success…Interesting. Self-discipline gives you more control over your day, projects, work situation and family life so that instead of scrabbling to meet ends with all areas of your life, you are able to regulate yourself and achieve excellence. It promotes time management and effective planning so that the goals you need to meet are achieved. At Global Training Institute we ensure that when you are completing a qualification with us, you are able to plan it into your life in a constructive and effective [...]

Time-management invariably focuses on self – how you organise your day, your papers, your workload. But how well do your staff members use their time to benefit the organisation, you, and themselves? Do you really know whether they, and you, are getting full value? Your staff can save your time and theirs if you take the initiative and encourage them to be time-conscious… 1. Watch for the indicators of a disorganised staff. Watch for messages indicating that the time of the human component in your organisation is not being used to best advantage: You are frequently interrupted by staff seeking assistance, instruction, or direction. Your staff practises reverse delegation – referring tasks back to you. Deadlines are often missed or postponed. Staff assignments often need to be redone because of their poor quality. Your action tray is overflowing and you seem to be taking home more and more work. Staff morale [...]

The ability to express oneself clearly on paper and to write effective reports, memos, letters, and other business documents is one of a manager’s most important skills. But some managers find it difficult to write clearly, concisely, and convincingly. Others take far longer than necessary to complete a written assignment. No matter whether your task is a letter, memo, report or novel, you can become a better writer if you follow this advice… 1. Prepare yourself. Before you begin to write, consider these three key issues: Know precisely the purpose of your writing task. You must first be clear about the purpose of your task. Ask yourself: What do I want the reader to think, do, or know? The more specific you can be with your answers, the easier it will be for you to plan your writing. Know your reader. Reading is a solo activity, so you must imagine you are [...]

We all seem to have an innate desire to continue learning and growing so that we can become more knowledgeable, efficient human beings. As an employer, we should want this for our employees as well as ourselves. So how can we aid the growth process in employees? A report issued by the Centre for Creative Leadership in North Carolina identified five key experiences that help employees grow and develop. Provide jobs/assignments that are challenging. Provide employees with the opportunity to interact with other people, especially managers and bosses. Hardships/difficulties. Coursework/training. Off-the-Job experience. At Global Training, we love to help employers develop their employees so that they can become more efficient at their current job.

If there are specific skills or training needs that you are looking for, RTOs can customise a course that targets those needs. Rather than complete a course that has a lot of irrelevant information, be specific when you talk to the RTO about what you need to learn and make sure that you obtain a course that is relevant and targeted to you. Accredited courses are flexible, meaning that it is possible for RTOs to delete units, add units and mix it around. There are some course rules however, that you need to be aware of. This ensures that the course does add up to be a recognised qualification of some kind. These are just some rules that RTOs must abide by when customising a course which include identifying: All units which are absolutely essential to the qualification. Other units of competency which can be added or removed without endorsement. [...]

8 Secrets to Reducing the Number of Time Consuming Meetings

Meetings, whether they are one-on-one discussions or gatherings of five, ten, or twenty people, are an important part of working life - but they are time-consuming. And often they are criticised for being unproductive, costly, boring, and sometimes unnecessary. Are they always needed? And all of them? Check out these points, and you may find you'll be holding fewer meetings in future... 1. Be fully aware of the cost of your meetings. Meetings consume valuable time. Often, time is wasted on rambling discussions, excessive socialising, political manoeuvring, special-interest conflicts, and travelling. Nor is time the only casualty. When did you last find out what your organisation's meetings were costing in salaries alone? 2. Consider why you hold so many meetings. Meetings can be very useful tools for communicating ideas, clarifying information, solving problems, making decisions, and building teams. But they can also be held for the wrong reasons: Do you [...]

Ever been in a position where you have been asked to present something and you know you’re not prepared? Ever been involved in a discussion where you don’t feel you can contribute constructively? What do you do when you are put in a position to speak or contribute to a discussion and you have no idea what to say? Ask a question. Mark Twain said, “It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.” So how does question asking stop you from looking dumbfounded and unprepared? The focus is immediately taken off you and placed onto the participants, listeners or conversationalists. Others feel valued by allowing them to input their ideas and opinions. By listening to the answers, you can launch yourself into a conversation, speech or more questions, using their answers as stimulus! Excited to ask some questions yet? [...]

How to put some FUN into your role as Manager!

Just because you're a manager, you don’t have to be all buttoned-down and grim. In fact, bringing a little levity to your role as a manager can make you and those around you more relaxed and effective. The best managers in any organisation aren't afraid to show the world that they have a sense of humour they enjoy using. Nor should you be. Humour is good for your career and for your health... 1. Know the value of humour to your own well-being. Many managers often underestimate the value of humour. Research has shown that it not only offers a most effective tool for engaging and relating to staff, but can also relieve stress, defuse a situation, promote trust and team bonding, restore our equilibrium, deflate our pomposity, reveal our essential humanity, offer us new perspectives, and help us to soar above the mundane in our job. It has been shown [...]

John Mitchell, Australian Videoconferencing Summit, 1997. It's a fact Video conferencing has become an increasingly attractive alternative to time-consuming and expensive travel. The technology has become cheaper, more robust, easier to use. Broadband is becoming more widely available. More people are teleworking.

"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."

"Good managers don't motivate others. Motivation comes from within the individual. It is not something that one person does to another. What a manager must do is to find ways to enhance and reinforce the motivating forces within their employees. Employees who hear their bosses talking about motivating them may worry about being manipulated rather than motivated." Thomas Quick, The Managers Motivation Desk Book, John Wiley, NJ, 1985. Don't forget The Five-Is of motivation Interesting work. Not every aspect of a job can be interesting, but smart managers make sure that every job has interesting components. Information. Tell staff how the company makes money, how they’re doing at their jobs, and other information you can offer. Involvement. Let employees help make decisions. Independence.
