13 Tips and Tricks to Excelling in Your Career

By |2020-12-10T12:11:57+10:00July 24th, 2020|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|

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 [...]

Feeling Stuck? Here’s 10 Top Tips for Setting Achievable Goals

By |2020-02-27T08:30:12+10:00February 27th, 2020|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|

Goal-setting has been described as ‘the inner technology of success’. It is one of your organisation’s most important activities. Unless taken seriously, this vital planning task will be futile, producing only a few high-sounding intentions that, for various reasons, are soon forgotten. So, if you want challenging and achievable goals, you should consider these basic principles… 1. Make sure your goals are realistic. A goal that aims too high, or offers a great deal of risk, with little chance of achievement, leads to frustration and surrender. It’s easy, for example, to say that a goal for the year is: ‘To increase production by 150%’ – but quite unrealistic with inadequate resources and uncommitted staff. 2. Keep your goals simple. If goals are complex, it is unlikely they will be clear and specific enough to focus effort and marshal the necessary resources. Clear simple goals give staff an unmistakable vision of what needs [...]

Steps You Can Take to Beat Those Monday Blues

A productive, happy, and effective day is usually achieved by starting out fast and peppy in the morning. Unfortunately, the day is often lost to many of us even before we get out of bed: we self-destruct as soon as we wake up, dreading the thought of having to go to work. For most people, Monday mornings in particular can be the most difficult time of all. If you have trouble getting started each week, here is some timely advice on beating those Monday morning blues… 1. Finish as many jobs as possible on Friday. If you finish as many tasks as you can before the weekend, you will feel much better knowing that these matters are not hanging over for Monday morning. 2. Tidy up your office before leaving on Friday evening Never arrive on Monday morning to find the cluttered remnants of the previous week’s work. 3. Get [...]

How YOU Can Accomplish More Through a Personal Achievement List

By |2019-09-27T13:03:17+10:00August 17th, 2015|Leadership, Qualifications, 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, Soft Skills, Training|

Too often managers modestly, and often unjustly or even unwittingly, hide their successes from others – and indeed from themselves. They fail to understand that the simple strategy of recording personal successes can motivate, increase self-productivity, and support career advancement. The compilation of a personal achievement list can have a considerable effect on a manager’s professional life… 1. Acknowledge your achievements to date. Most managers see themselves as ‘modest achievers’. They’re so accustomed to doing what they do and what is expected of them that they rarely, if ever, class any of their accomplishments as ‘achievements’. Indeed, when people are impressed with something they’ve done – something that perhaps seems rather ordinary to them – they’re surprised. As a manager, you can use your past achievements more positively to motivate you to greater heights. To shrug off those achievements modestly, as most professionals are prone to do, or to forget [...]

8 Easy Tips to Help You Get Rid of Your Bad Habits

By |2019-09-27T13:03:41+10:00April 27th, 2015|Qualifications Diploma, Resources, 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, Short Courses, Soft Skills, Training, Uncategorized|

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 behavior. Ultimately, you will [...]

In our previous blog we looked at 6 tips to help you with your goal-setting. Here are 7 more to further help you develop more effective goals and achieve that career and training success! 7. Make your goals timely. There should be a time dimension that specifies when the goal is to be achieved. Tying a specific deadline to a goal along with individual accountability usually leads to a more proactive approach to its achievement. 8. Write them down. By committing your goals to paper, and making them public, you not only convert dreams into tangible targets, but also work harder for their achievement - or risk losing face. 9. Align goals with the corporate mission. Remember to link individual goals to group goals, which ultimately should be linked to organisational or corporate goals. 10. Publicize your goals. The best way to accomplish anything is to set your goals - then [...]

Streamlining Objectives for Success

By |2019-09-27T13:04:09+10:00November 24th, 2014|Leadership, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, School of Business, School of Leadership, School of Management, School of Project Managment, Schools, Training|

To achieve a goal, there is a process that you should implement. This process is to streamline and analyze your objectives. Begin at the very beginning at the smallest, specific part. These are the most important steps to take to meet the guidelines. An objective is a way of knowing what action or plan is to be taken and identifying the expected results. This plan provides a set of directions so that making the decision will not be as complicated as when the goal is just being considered. Peter Ducker documented a book published in 1954 entitled Practiced Management wherein MBO which stands for Management by Objectives, was introduced. This is a program that consists of simple but very useful processes in order to meet commitments in an organization. Never worry, as this is also applicable to personal plans. MBO consists of 5 steps: 1. It should be SPECIFIC. It [...]

You've heard it before...NEVER GIVE UP! But how does one practically keep going when the odds seem against them? Explore the facets of giving up and the potential rewards of sticking through the difficult times... What’s this to do with business anyway? Some will ask – “What’s a heading like this got to do with business? The answer is - everything. One of the largest network marketing organisations in the world has a tape, which they give to their employees and agents entitled “Never Quit”. The essence of the message on the tape is that if you don’t quit, you’ll make it. That should be the quote displayed on every businessperson’s desk. When you think about it, if you never quit you will make it. Many people in business have quit or have felt a failure simply because they did not believe they could succeed. They lacked faith in themselves [...]

2 Tips to Staying on Track with your Goals

By |2019-09-27T13:04:19+10:00October 13th, 2014|Leadership, Qualifications, Schools, Training|

Are your goals set? Are you all geared up to get started on them? Have you established some ways to support your goals? What will ensure that you actually stay on your desired path? It is easy to get off path. It is easy to get all wrapped in stuff in everyday life. You know what I mean? I know, I have been off track with my goals. When you do set goals and establish ways to get where you want to go, how do you stay on track? When you have clear goals that you want to achieve, it is easier to set the steps to achieve them. It sounds easy. The fact is you will only take control of your goal when you "stop doing things” that you are doing. Look at your life right now? What does it look like? Did you get the steps done today [...]

Pinpoint Your Dream Career

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 [...]

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 [...]

How to tackle your priorities

Setting priorities is a decision-making process by which you rank in order of importance the tasks you or your staff members must do. By completing the tasks on your list in order, you will achieve your goals. It sounds easy - but it's not. In fact, priority-setting and sticking to the agreement you make with yourself will be major challenges for you as a manager. Here are several important suggestions to help you draw up a priority list - and make it work... 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. [...]
