  • If you are new to project management, this program provides an introduction to the discipline and what is required to manage projects from a project team member’s perspective. The program will introduce the ten project management knowledge areas and the project lifecycle.

    Using a supporting case study you will work through the basic project management processes and discuss how these processes relate back to your own workplace experiences.
  • Every business needs to ‘sell’ in order to succeed, and not everyone understands how selling is a way of enabling the customer to achieve what they want. This program will introduce participants to the principles of selling in a way that removes the fears that new or non-salespeople have about being seen as high pressure or manipulative. Participants learn how selling is a customer focused, ‘solutions driven’ process as they increase their skill and comfort at selling their organisation’s products and services.

  • Supervisors who attend this popular and fundamental training program become much more effective and productive in their role. They also have fewer problems within their workplace because they are sensitive to what motivates their staff, are better at solving problems and have improved leadership skills.

    Effective introductory training enables supervisors to reach their optimum level of effectiveness faster than those who simply learn on-the-job or are ‘thrown in at the deep end’. This program explores the relationships between supervisor and worker. It shows group or team leaders the functions of effective groups or teams and how to weld together concerns of task, team and individual to achieve identified objectives.

  • Promoting a safer working environment is not just a consideration – it is a major reality in today’s workplace. In this program, participants will gain an understanding of the principles and practices that support an effective OHS system and identify safety issues that need to be addressed in their workplace.
  • The ability to write clearly and effectively is a critical professional skill. This program will assist participants to plan, organise and structure their writing to achieve better results with written business communications. Through the practical application of writing and editing skills, participants will learn to write documents that are reader oriented and communicate clearly and effectively.

  • This program provides the knowledge and competencies for internal and external auditors from “what is an audit?” through to practical operational improvements as a direct consequence of the audit.

    This is not solely for auditors as it provides the skills for anyone to assess the way they do business, evaluate whether it is working for them, and determine better ways of doing it.

  • Your ability to develop and maintain relationships with colleagues and friends depends on your ability to communicate effectively. Good communication skills can be learned. The focus is on you and what you will do to keep in touch with those important people around you. This program provides you with a range of communication techniques and strategies to become a more effective and confident communicator. With this understanding, you will be able to enhance working relationships and deal with difficult situations in a positive manner. The program will also give you the opportunity to develop your own personal communication style and better understand the styles of others.

  • Meetings are an established part of organisational life, but that doesn’t mean they are done well. This program explores the essential aspects of preparing for and recording the outcomes of efficient and effective meetings.
  • This program provides specific auditing skills enabling participants to operate as a lead auditor for audits of management systems at all levels throughout an organisation.

  • This program outlines and reinforces the need for taking personal control over time and being responsible for the outcomes. You will develop the skills to recognise and balance your own and your teams time management to enhance performance and efficiency.

Micro- management doesn't have to be dirty word Mar 18 2018
Gather a group of employees and ask them what they they think about micro-managers and the negative comments pour forth. But could this reputation be unfair, exaggerated, or even unfounded?
