Why Can't The Man On The Street Learn To Speak ?

Picture
 One of my favourite musicals "My Fair Lady" has always had, and always will have, a great and very positive impact on both my life and my work. Funnily enough, I was even referred to by one of my many clients as "the Fair Lady." The ability to communicate and express oneself genuinely, whether through a musical instrument, vocally, artistically or through dance has becoming…

"A la Carte" Restaurant Communication

I recently attended a business lunch at a restaurant that I had not visited in several months. On arrival, I was greeted by the waiters and manager at the door and was then shown to my table. Once I was seated, the waiter handed me a menu and immediately asked me what I would like to drink. Seeing that I had just sat down, I decided to take a few minutes to make the decision. General greetings and exchanging of handshakes took place and within two minutes of having been seated,…

Crushing That Job Interview!

Attending a job interview can be quite nerve wracking. This process can either make or break the person involved. The process can sometimes be long and frustrating and you really have to have a very thick skin in order to withstand all the personal and uncomfortable questions that you will be asked. Self preparation is very important and often many people who find themselves working through this process find it tough to prepare themselves correctly and as much as possible. Many times…

Skills degradation and obsolescence caused by long periods of unemployment need to be addressed

 

It can take up to 6 months or more to find a job during a period of unemployment. Globally, on average, the unemployed are experiencing longer periods of joblessness than before the financial crisis. Employers are favouring the newly unemployed when jobs do become available. This increases the risk of skills degradation and obsolescence. The resultant skills mismatch…

Dealing with Unwanted Calls and Callers

I am certain that at some stage you have received one of "those" calls. The question is, in what manner are we dealing with them?

When training and exercising one's voice, I always encourage my clients to not scream, shout or strain their vocal chords in any way. Obviously, it is easier to remember this aspect during the voice training session. However, to remember this aspect and many others at all times, becomes tough especially when you are new at voice…

Eduloan simply delivers employee training

Sourcing the right training programme for your employees from a trustworthy training provider is not an easy task. The additional burden of finding cost effective courses that will give a return on investment can leave HR practitioners at a loss.

Companies who don’t have the necessary human resources experience are in danger of engaging with bogus training providers or participating in subpar training programmes.

However, Eduloans new Training Fund Management service is there…

Opportunities for senior citizens not a priority

I recently wrote an article on whether government’s plan to produce 30 000 artisans by 2030 is a plausible one.

According to the Ekurhuleni Skills and Training Center SA can reach this target if government provides development opportunities for older semi-skilled workers as well as young people.

This comment got me thinking about the current focus on youth development, youth employment, youth subsidies.

No-one doubts that investing in our young…

How can training assist in developing employee engagement?

The last two to three decades have seen tectonic shifts in the world of work. Utterly dead is the concept of a faceless and mechanised workforce who follows processes blindly. It has been replaced by the idea of motivated individuals whose capacity for creative problem-solving and meaningful contribution positions them as potential partners for future growth. The question is how to empower existing employees to greater and greater contributions, efficiencies and innovations? The Human…

Remember the Future?

We train, to no avail because we don’t address thinking preferences…

  • Thinking skills determines performance, not technical skills!
  • Steve Biko said psychological change before anything else…
  • We need to raise managerial awareness levels in the workplace in order to create an inspired workforce
  • The way we think determines our future, so why don’t we develop our thinking ability?

It was suggested that 2012 is the end of the world.…

HR: Process implementers or strategic contributors?

by Nadira Mahomed

The role of HR has grown and changed to add more value to the organisation, particularly organisational strategy. But does your HR promote your strategy and contribute to the bottom line or does your HR department simply implement processes?



As we all know, the HR generalist deals directly with employees and this individual will be the employees’ first point of contact for personnel matters. However, HR generalists are…

Benefits & Rewards of the RPL Learnership for Administrative Personnel

Recognition of Prior Learning was formed to offer previously disadvantaged individuals a chance to be assessed in order to qualify for a national certificate that is recognised by governing boards. This verifies that staff have acquired or possess the knowledge, experience, skills and are competent in their position and therefore should be allowed to receive a qualification without having to do further formal studying or training.



Despite the obvious benefits of RPL Learnerships,… Continue
