10 Steps Towards Becoming a Leader

Leadership is not an exclusive club for those who are ‘born with it’. Although leadership relies on some inherited characteristics, it also depends on training and experience. Indeed, many of the traits and abilities that are the raw materials of leadership can be acquired. If you link those traits with an essential desire to achieve, nothing can keep you from becoming a leader. You may even become a great leader. This ten-point program will get you started… 1. Believe that you can become a leader. Leadership is a function; it is something that a person does, a set of skills – and any skill can be learned, strengthened, and enhanced. Not all leaders are ‘born leaders’; and leadership is certainly not just a group of personality traits. The leader lives within each of us. So acknowledge that leadership begins with your own belief in yourself. 2. Be sure you have [...]

11 Ways 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. [...]

The Secret to Gaining Power and Influence

By |2019-09-27T13:03:27+10:00July 1st, 2015|Leadership, 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|

Enthusiastic and committed managers strive to get things done by exerting influence, a process that involves the use of power. If you have power, you can influence the behaviour of others and get people to do what you want them to do. Normally power should come with the job; but you can gain it by other means. Here are some of the ways in which you can accumulate power in your organisation... 1. Gain control by moving into a position of power. Seek promotion. Power and influence are normally part and parcel of the formal authority vested in a senior managerial position. But remember that, as well as using your recognised title and role in the organisation, you may need to bolster this legitimate coercive power with other forces to increase your influence over others… 2. Gain control over resources. You will gain additional power over others if you are [...]

11 Ways to Listen Actively

By |2019-09-27T13:03:35+10:00May 25th, 2015|Leadership, Online Short Courses, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, Resources, 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, Short Courses, Soft Skills, Target Markets, 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. [...]

How to Set Achievable Goals

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 them 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 [...]

Arthur Pell, Managing People, Alpha Books, New York, 1999, p. 120. Do you feel as though further study would help you become more indispensable within your current position or organisation?
