The other day I was having a discussion with someone who is more than 20 years my senior. He remarked how complex and difficult business and life has become. Things are being done so differently and technology dominates the marketplace. He admitted to being a technophobe and for the most part either unwilling or unable to make use of the various technologies that so many of us take for granted. It is challenging enough to get him to use his cellphone for much more than taking and…Continue

Values can be different for different people. These differences can also lead to inconsistences between employees' personal values and the values of the organisation. Acting against this may appear to be curtailed by the fact that everyone enjoys the right to their personal values, a right supported by the bill of rights in the constitution. This personal right doesn't, however,…Continue

What is Return on Investment (ROI)? Does one size fit all businesses? How does one assess ROI when it comes to communication, and particularly the training and coaching of communication skills? If your business is not grappling with these questions then it is likely missing out on a critical component of improving sales, customer experience, staff satisfaction, improvements in productivity and increases in revenue.…Continue
For a business to flourish, it is important to stay abreast of new technology, methods and developments in industry. It is therefore vital for business owners and personnel managers to keep updating the skillset provided by their company.
Training staff to implement new processes, or fill gaps in the business structure can be expensive. Besides course fees, employees undergoing training are not meeting their usual quota of production. So how can we ensure funds spent on…Continue

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,…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue
