Having a positive attitude is key to success with what ever you do. | We have compiled some different tips, stories and quotes that can help you find a positive attitude for 2020. Flying with Superman Former heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali, so the story goes, was once in an aircraft preparng for take-off. A flight attendant noticed that his seatbelt was unfastened. 'Sir, would you please do up your seat belt?' Muhammad Ali looked up with his characteristic saucy grin and said in his slow, gravelly drawl: 'Superman don't need no seatbelt!' But the attendant was quick with a reply: 'Superman don't need no aeroplane. Do up your belt!' Muhammad Ali, as we know, was renowned for his positive mental attitude, a trait he displayed every day throughout his career, in the ring and [...]

The Secret To Building Other’s Confidence in You

By |2019-09-27T13:03:06+10:00September 9th, 2015|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|

Confidence has long been recognised as a desirable – if not essential – life quality. A recent study in the United States, for example, identified ‘confidence’ as the one quality women found most attractive in men. A great deal of research and writing, therefore, has been devoted to identifying ways of building self-confidence. But attention also needs to be devoted to how to build others’ confidence in you – your effectiveness and success rely on it. Here’s how to help others to become confident in you… 1. Focus on building relationships. Tom Peters is attributed with saying ‘Business is a series of relationships between people’. In fact, relationship building has become a key value-adding activity – the better the relationships, the better the business. To build and maintain the desired relationships, four behaviours are essential: Arrive on time (or earlier). Do as you say you will. Finish what you start. [...]

The Key to Apologising in the Workplace

By |2019-09-27T13:03:19+10:00August 12th, 2015|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|

In his ‘Essay on Criticism’, Alexander Pope assured us ‘to err is human’. Mastering the art of apologising, therefore, became an essential life skill. Whatever your position on the social and corporate ladders, there will inevitably be times when you will have to say you’re sorry (but not necessarily admit you’re wrong). The ability to apologise is an admirable trait: it takes a ‘big’ person to say they’re sorry, which can be a powerful management technique. Here’s how you can master this art… 1. Recognise the two types of apology. The most common form of apology is an admission that you’re wrong – just as Pope’s famous line suggests. A second type, however, is an apology for your actions – such as when laying down the law to a staff member who submits a report several days late. In doing so you point out that any repetition will lead to [...]

Overcoming the Fear of Failure

By |2019-09-27T13:04:03+10:00December 19th, 2014|Leadership, Qualifications, Qualifications Advanced Diploma, Qualifications Certificate IV, Qualifications Diploma, 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|

How often have you avoided tackling a job because you were afraid of not doing it well, or backed off a new initiative because you feared it might not succeed, or not accepted a speaking engagement because you were afraid of embarrassing yourself? Fear of failure is surprisingly common. But it is a fear that can be conquered, especially when you realise that it isn't failure that counts in life: it's what you can learn from the experience that matters. Heed this advice to help overcome your fear of failure... 1. Try not to be hard on yourself. If your company's aim was to make an annual profit of $100,000 and you managed a profit of only $78,000 - is that really failure? Failure is a relative term, depending on who is doing the measuring. 2. Set your own standards of success or failure. Success, or failure, is in many [...]

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 [...]

Expect to Succeed Part 2

There’s an old saying, “What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?” While it sounds good on the surface (and it is, don’t get me wrong), it’s not perfect. Sure you could say what you would attempt if you knew you couldn’t fail, but that doesn’t help you when your brain is shouting, “Hey dummy, you’re probably going to fail, don’t you realize that?” The original question is a good start, but it needs to be taken a step further. Instead of wishful thinking about what “could” happen, I’ve found a better question is more along the lines of “What will you attempt knowing that you will ultimately succeed, despite all the ‘failures’ that are sure to come along the way?” Because, face it, life is going to throw some pretty rough stuff over to you. You’re going to have a lot more “go wrong” than you’d [...]

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 [...]

Failure…is it that bad?

By |2019-09-27T13:04:27+10:00August 29th, 2014|Leadership, Online Short Courses, 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|

In our Western society we have a never negative outlook to failure. The idea of failing is terrifying and we do all we can to keep ourselves on the track of success. However, perhaps we need to change our way of thinking about failure...   Getting at the source of failure If you treat an employee's failure the right way, you can turn it to your advantage. If a project flops, sit down with the staff member responsible and, rather than assign blame, explore the reasons for the failure. Search for the cause -were the resources insufficient? were they faulty? was the timing poor? was the planning inadequate? was the data erroneous? did failure reside in a personality trait - a tendency to jump to conclusions, or to rely on ambiguous data? Only then can you correct the problem at its root. It's what we learn from the experience of [...]

Saying No to the Fear of Failure!

"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 nickel iron alkaline battery, we are told he performed 50,000 experiments, and failed 50,000 times. Someone who knew about this asked if all these failures had disappointed him. ‘Not at all,’ replied Edison, ‘for I have learned 50,000 ways it cannot be done, and therefore I am 50,000 times nearer the final experiment!’ And, of course, he eventually did succeed. His failures were simply stepping stones to success.   "You measure the size of an accomplishment by [...]

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 [...]
