The demand for people with Six Sigma expertise is constantly increasing. More and more organizations are discovering the many ways that the Six Sigma methodology can help them grow and improve. As Six Sigma spreads to many different industries beyond its genesis in manufacturing, you can now find many service and government organizations advertising for Six Sigma help. Plus, it is no longer the largest corporations looking for Six Sigma help. Smaller companies also are taking on Six Sigma projects and hiring people as consultants or permanent staff. The need for full-time Six Sigma professionals will only increase. Types of Six Sigma Jobs There are many Six Sigma jobs in many industries at junior and senior levels. The positions have descriptions and requirements unique to that organization and its requirements. It is true that many Six Sigma positions are filled internally as organizations train their own people already familiar with [...]

In this blog, we are continuing along the theme of success by 'Never Giving Up'. This concept is often easier said than done, however, it is vital for your success. If it doesn’t work These are basic principles that you can apply in business any time you feel it’s not worth going on. Remember - Never giving up doesn’t mean keeping on doing the same thing when it doesn’t work.

Job interviews are a critical step in the achievement of a job offer. Your resume might be outstanding and your experience second to none...but if there isn't chemistry in the job interview, you may miss out on the job. Here are a few more tips and hints on what you should expect when arriving at a job interview and how to make sure that you give it everything you've got! Be prepared for these questions 'Never go into a job interview,' says Mitchell Posner in 'Executive Essentials', 'without knowing clearly your answers to these questions'… An icebreaker question: e.g. So, what do you think of this weather we're having? What was your last job? Why did you leave? What did you like about your past jobs? What did you hate? Those were your duties. What were your achievements? Tell me about yourself (Watch for raised eyebrows.) Now I know your [...]

Saying No

By |July 23rd, 2014|Leadership, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, School of Business, School of Corporate Governance, School of Leadership, School of Management, School of Online, Distance, School of Project Managment, Schools, Soft Skills, Training|

In our last blog post we discussed the importance and value of learning to say no! As managers, employees and humans functioning in our every day lives, saying no can be difficult. If you need further inspiration and excitement about the possibility of saying no...here are a few more anecdotes and facts. Liberate yourself! Here's an idea Actor Paul Newman was once having a late lunch in a nearly empty restaurant with his actress wife, Joanne Woodward. They dined uninterrupted but, finishing their meal, they were approached by a man who asked Newman for an autograph. ‘Sorry, but that’s not something I do,’ was the actor’s polite but firm reply. Some people find it difficult to say ‘no’. But it’s something you have the right to do. With all the demands placed on a leader’s time and energy, it’s important to be able to say ‘no’ in a pleasant but [...]

How to Model Yourself on Successful People

By |June 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 Ensure Employability in the Coming Decades

By |May 30th, 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, Training|

As managers continue to speculate about the challenges, opportunities, and uncertainties associated with the new millennium, thriving and surviving - even remaining relevant - will become a major concern for many. Maintaining your employability will continue to be an ongoing challenge - and it will be your responsibility. To prepare yourself for the uncertain times ahead, consider the following advice... 1. Try to understand what's coming. You'll have more control over your future if you stay at the cutting edge. Read all you can. Speak with others. Reflect. But be aware of emerging trends - such as these: Managers are likely to change their jobs several times during their careers. Technology will eliminate old jobs and create new ones. Computers and machines will become smarter - and people will need to do the same. Staff will have more flexible working arrangements. Companies will become 'virtual' through outsourcing, telecommuting, and staff working [...]

Do you employees arrive late to meetings? Do you spend too much time planning a meeting that seems to be wasted? Do you struggle to engage everyone in the meeting? Meetings can be difficult to manage, especially when we are becoming more and more time poor with people's job descriptions growing and expanding. However, meetings can be great tools within the workplace to ensure everyone is on the same page, set a company culture, keep people accountable and delegate roles. Here are a few more tips on meetings for you to consider... What's wrong with meetings? According to Roger Mosvick and Robert Nelson in 'We've Got to Start Meeting Like This', managers and professionals polled on the specific problems of meetings listed 1305 problems. Sixteen of these accounted for 90 per cent of the problems. Here they are: Getting off the subject No goals or agenda Too lengthy Poor or [...]

Articulating a Vision for your Organisation

By |March 31st, 2014|Leadership, Online Short Courses, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Diploma, School of Business, School of Corporate Governance, School of Management, Schools, Shortcourses, Soft Skills, Training|

It is so easy for an organisation to busy itself with daily activities that it can become oblivious to its future, without reflecting or envisaging what can happen, without a vision or a sense of direction. Your organisation may be active in the short term; but, without a vision of the future, it will lose direction, purpose, and control - those essential ingredients for success in the long term. Here is one way of articulating for your organisation a vision linking values, purpose, and mission... 1. Get ‘vision’ in context. Visionary organisations have two distinct, stand-out features - an enduring character that transcends all other things like products, bosses, management fads, and technological breakthroughs; and visible, vivid, real futures as yet unrealised. Vision helps to bring those two features to life. In 'Leaders', Warren Bennis and Bert Nanus defined an organisational vision as: 'A mental image of a possible and desirable [...]

Taking Initiative as April rolls in!

By |March 28th, 2014|Leadership, Online Short Courses, School of Business, School of Management, School of Project Managment, Schools, Shortcourses, Soft Skills, Training|

"Achievers have one crucial characteristic in common: they are constantly looking for new ways to impact their environment. The initiator knows that there are dozens of opportunities to initiate in every organisation. It's a way of looking at the world that spawns not only major breakthroughs, but a steady stream of small gains (which in retrospect often look like breakthroughs). When you decide to initiate, you become a player instead of a spectator. And though taking initiative certainly has its material rewards, the good feelings of accomplishment and control over your life are even better." Jimmy Calano & Jeff Salzman, CareerTracking, Gower, Aldershot, 1988, p.21. As we took a look at our goals from the start of the year in our last blog post, we wanted to share some inspiring stories with you about people who really did take initiative and didn't let anything hold them back. You too can do [...]

More on Problem Solving

By |September 30th, 2013|Leadership, Online Short Courses, Qualifications, School of Business, School of Leadership, School of Management, Schools, Shortcourses, Soft Skills|

In our last blog post we discussed a step by step plan to solve major problems. Here are some extra tips and hints we found amusing and helpful! Smile & ponder A young boy had a pair of squeaky black shoes. The noise drove him crazy. His father told him to soak the shoes all night long in a bucket of water. In the morning, the water was black and the shoes no longer squeaked. The young boy concluded that, by getting rid of the black, he got rid of the squeak. The moral of the story is that, when trying to solve a problem, make sure you don’t reach the wrong conclusion. […]
