Even those people who support the disputed theory that leaders are ‘born’ to excel, admit that environment and training are usually needed to develop successful leaders. Effective leaders are a vital ingredient to business, sports, medical, research, military, and all other team-oriented activities. The important questions, of course, are: Where do leaders come from? How do we find them? How can we identify them? How can we make them? The answers relate to recognizing talent and then encouraging, cultivating, and mentoring those potential leaders so that they can flourish in your organization. Explore the following strategies to help you and your organization succeed in this process… 1. Consider what strategies you currently have in place in your organization. To gauge what is required in terms of a leadership development program in your organization, you will need to answer the following questions: • Does our company have a comprehensive plan [...]

How to Bounce Back from a Personal Setback Stronger Than Ever

1. Know that we all react differently to setbacks. A setback is an incident that checks our progress and brings our momentum to a grinding and usually disappointing halt. Our self-esteem can deflate; our confidence and motivation hit rock bottom. People respond differently. Some fall apart; others get back to work immediately; some turn to drink, become depressive, withdrawn, angry, and non-productive, the setback affecting all areas of their lives for some time. One’s degree of maturity, particularly in terms of emotional intelligence, becomes a vital factor in successfully overcoming the personal impact of a major disappointment. 2. Work through the stages of emotional turmoil after a setback. In ‘Emotional Intelligence at Work’, US psychologist Hendrie Weisinger identifies seven sequential post-setback stages common to most people. He says that, following a setback, ‘you need to experience and manage each stage, successfully moving through each one. Failure to do so [...]

Climbing the management ladder to success is not something to be left to chance. Unfortunately, there is no magic formula. In fact, no two management consultants would agree completely on any certain recipe for reaching the top job. They would agree, however, that, if you are ambitious to reach the top, then the best person to help you get there is yourself. So here are a few guidelines to help you on your way… 1. Be prepared. There are no better candidates for advancement than those who, while handling their own jobs in exemplary fashion, have also prepared themselves for the job above theirs. Keep close to the people whose job you want, for they often have much to say about their successors. 2. Attend seminars and courses regularly. The sharpening of management skills through continuing education is essential for effective managers. Additionally, exposure to other managers at seminars and [...]

Top Delegating Tips Managers Need to Know!

By |2019-09-27T13:02:38+10:00January 11th, 2016|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, Soft Skills, Training|

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 to [...]

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!).

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?

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. [...]

In today’s competitive environment, you need to develop a range of effective and eye-catching strategies that can give you the edge over your colleagues when promotional opportunities arise. A well-presented résumé and letter of application, and a successful interview, are of course very important; but a carefully prepared professional portfolio can also help you showcase your skills, experience, and accomplishments. Gain that extra advantage by considering these helpful ideas… 1. Understand the purpose of a portfolio. A portfolio is a tool that allows you to ‘prove’ your experience, skills, and achievement in the tough competition for management positions – as architects, designers, and similar professionals have found over the years. But, as well, the very act of compiling your professional portfolio: allows you to evaluate your work and reflect on what you have accomplished, how others have responded, what you have learned, and what gaps there are in your professional [...]
