Training to become a doctor is a decision that is usually taken at a young age. This is partly due to the amount of training required and also to do with the background of sciences which is necessary to qualify for the training. Of course, it is possible to train as a doctor later in life, but the time period can complicate this further as you are more likely to have a lifestyle which needs supporting.

One World – One Humanity!
One Human Race.
As a 12 year old white boy, I stood on the side of a Bancroft road in Zambia, and waved my Zambian flag at the first President of our newly independent Zambia. He smilingly waved his white handkerchief at the crowds as he sailed past. As kids we were not perturbed with the change from colonial rule to African rule. It was just another day off school.
As the leader of a country with incredible…Continue
I run the risk of having asked this before, or this having being posted before, but I need help.
I need copies of certificates for someone:
I will try contact UJ to see if they could help me with the Advanced Diploma, but any other suggestions for me would really be appreciated.
Thanks, and enjoy your weekends!
As a business owner or the person responsible for running a business, one of the worst things you can do is make your employees unhappy. A major part of your focus should be keeping the people who work for you happy.
A happy employee will do their best work for you and will always be willing to go the extra mile. Those are the people you want to be working for you. And the good news is that it doesn’t take much…Continue

South Africa has come a long way since 1994. We are known across the globe as “The Rainbow Nation”, a name we wear with pride. Because of our cultural diversity regarding race, ethnicity, colour, sexual orientation, religion, background, and somewhat tragic past, we still have a long way to go as a Country, to accept one and other. Understanding your fellow man and colleague can go a long way to manage conflict in organisations and managing diversity within the work environment. To achieve…Continue

Are you caught in a busy trap, are suffering from info besity? I am a public speaker and one of the topics that I like to speak on is the Busy Trap.
I have been a practitioner of meditation and self awareness methods for the fabled 10000 hours and still am realising that I do not know much! But all the same feel that I can speak on this. I attended a meeting a while ago where there appeared to be a frenzy, this made me deeply uncomfortable. Tweeting while speaking, two screens up...…Continue

No one wants to find themselves at the receiving end of a lawsuit, but we also should be concerned about whether we want to begin them in the first place. While we all want justice, regardless of the extent of any damage done, we also should be prepared in the best possible ways in seeking it. In the end, obtaining proper legal advice from a professional will always be the best way to go forward.
Frivolous lawsuits are very famous news stories from all over the world. Most of us know…Continue

The last few years have seen the rise of many social networking sites; there are now hundreds of them ranging from the most popular, general sites like Facebook, to the less known or well used sites, such as 43things. This site is dedicated to listing your goal or goals and connecting with others who have the same goal; the purpose is to aid each other to achieve your goals.
It is fair to say there is now a social media site for everyone. This means that your customers and potential…Continue

Coaching and mentoring a young mind can be an easy job if you have the patience and skill. Many employers hire interns, and then leave them with the appropriate department for their chosen field, never to spend time with them for the entire duration of their internship. That is how it works, but if you want to take an apprentice under your wing to teach them the tips and tricks of the trade, they will be forever thankful for you taking the time out your day to help them. Make them feel at…Continue
"if you keep my commandments and love the Lord your God, and serve Him with all your heart and soul, then I will give you the rain for your land in it's season, the early rain and the latter rain, and you may gather in your grain, your new wine and your oil". (Deuteronomy 11; 13-14).
Perhaps this is why we have a drought in South Africa at present - just a thought???

Big promotions will probably only come by a few times in your life, but when they do, it’s a different kind of accomplishment to finishing college or landing your first job. A promotion is the affirmation that you have been noticed and that someone up there thinks you’re going places.
But what if you wait for a promotion that doesn’t come?
If time is moving on and you aren’t rising up the ranks, you might think it’s time to seek out a new employer where you will be better…Continue

There are many strategies to get a business to work well as there are businesses. Yet, key to all business, is being able to succeed and grow - which only happens when the people who make the business do so. A key way to aid this is to focus on making those who already are part of the business into more competitive and skilled than they are right now.
Ideally, we’d want employees to be the best anyway - but considering there are always areas to grow, this means we should rather have…Continue
There are always few rotten apples among the bunch, but getting rid of them before they spoil the rest is the difference between company success and company failure. Many may think, what harm can come from keeping them on? The harm comes when they are opposing the system and creating unnecessary hassle for everyone else - ultimately creating an unsavoury atmosphere in the office.
When they are always giving ultimatums
There is a right way and a wrong way to ask for a…Continue

I receive so many queries from "QUALIFIED ASSESSORS" asking how do they become constituent assessors. This makes me wonder what our providers are teaching when they train assessors?
I am posting a previously published article for the benefit of all.
The need for assessors and moderators…Continue
Company culture is very important. Want to know what’s bad for company culture? Annoying your employees. Follow these simple rules (and others like them) so you don’t run the risk of alienating your most important resource.
Don’t have favourites
It is human nature to like some people more than others, but don’t show favouritism between your employees. Even if you do like some more than others, try not to let it show. That is a short road to resentment and…Continue
