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 [...]

Success… We all aspire to it, talk about it, envy those who achieve it, we think about it, fight for it. It is really worth it. Success comes with reaching our aims and it brings us incomparable satisfaction and happiness. That gives us a unique opportunity to be happy every day, if we achieve small goals every day and step by step we will be approaching our GREAT dream. Recollect your studies at college, when you had to combine work and study; when you had a very tense schedule, when your only solution was a custom term paper to get through the semester. But you stood it. By achieving mini goals every term, at last you reached the main aim – successful graduation. And that is why you are a successful person. But one of the qualities of a prosperous person is that he is always striving for perfection and [...]

What do employers look for in potential employees? That was the question that was posted recently on a career discussion forum online. Naturally, for each different position, the answers to that question would be different. However, there are some common skills that employers look for in all employees, whether the employee happens to be a network engineer or a fry cook. In-Demand Skills for Success 1. BASIC SKILLS Reading, writing and arithmetic!

How to Listen Actively

By |2019-09-27T13:05:14+10:00March 3rd, 2014|Leadership, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, Resources, School of Business, School of Leadership, School of Management, School of Project Managment, Shortcourses, Soft Skills, Training|

Listening accounts for well over half of a manager's communication time, and it is unquestionably the weakest link in the communication chain. We simply don't listen well enough. The failure is not in the hearing, but in our ability to attend to what we hear. Listening is hard work. It's so easy to 'switch off'. If only we listened attentively and with empathy, we would eliminate so many misunderstandings, arguments, delays, and mistakes. Become a better listener by adhering to the following advice... 1. Commit yourself to each individual act of listening. Whenever you need to hear everything someone is saying, commit yourself - really commit yourself - to do so. Say to yourself, 'The most important thing in my life at this moment is to understand this person's feelings and views.' Accordingly, focus all of your listening capacity on the speaker for the next five, fifteen, or fifty minutes. Actually [...]

In our last blog post we discussed some simple steps you can take to getting rid of the fear of failure in your life. For some people the fear is slight and only blocks their ability to take risks in a small way. For others, it can be crippling. It's important to know where you are on this scale so you can be aware of whether you are missing out on opportunities and development due to fear. "The worst possible outcome of trying a work task and then failing is probably transient embarrassment. You might be embarrassed for a while, but that will fade. The residue hopefully will be a valuable learning experience. Trial-and-error learning is a time-honoured process and one familiar to most successful people." Fred Orr, How to Succeed at Work, Unwin, Sydney, 1987, p.30. It's a fact When the famous inventor Thomas Alva Edison wanted to make a [...]

Are you a Risk Taker?

"To get ahead, you must put yourself on the line. That's how individuals succeed, and that's how companies succeed. With the increasing rate of change, 'the status quo' is almost nonexistent - you are constantly at risk." Mitchell Prosner, Executive Essentials , Avon Books,NY, 1987, p. 255. Smile & ponder Two seeds lay side by side in the fertile spring soil. The first seed said, ‘I want to grow! I want to send my roots deep into the soil beneath me, thrust my sprouts through the earth’s crust above me, unfurl my tender buds like banners to announce the arrival of spring… I want to feel the warmth of the sun on my face and the blessing of the morning dew on my petals!’ And so she grew. The second seed said, ‘I am afraid. If I send my roots into the ground below, I don’t know what I will encounter in [...]

"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 [...]
