How to achieve big results with small budgets

We don’t all have the luxury of big budgets. If you’ve worked in a small business before, you know this. But there’s good news. Marketing isn’t as black and white as it used to be. 

Go back to the mid 90’s. Print was in. Companies promoted themselves via newspapers, magazines, TV, and radio. Today, you can reach new audiences thorough as little as a $5 advertising spend. Thanks, Facebook. And if you don’t have any budget, all you need is time.&...

Using mobile phones. How to manage it from a leader's point of view.

You’ll be hard pressed to find someone without a mobile phone. In the past, they were looked at as a distraction at work, but things have changed. 

We’re all ‘on’, 24/7. Yet, companies aren’t using it to their advantage. Largely in part because technology moves so quickly that it’s hard to keep up.

We’re naturally control freaks and love to do it all. It’s most likely how we got to where we are now – showing that we can manage a lot.

Manage your contractors & freelancers… with these 5 tips

There’s this common misconception. If we hire freelancers, they’ll manage themselves. That’s what self-employed people do, right? Wrong… 

Your freelancers and contractors need to be nurtured, too, possibly more than your employees. Sure, the relationship between managers and freelancers is less hierarchical. It doesn’t come with the same expectations. But, you can’t be completely hands off. 

Freelancers don’t work f...

Why leaders should celebrate wins

I used to work for this company. Every Friday, they’d offer beers to employees after 3.00pm. We did it so often that it became engrained in the company’s culture. 

We’d yell at our colleagues from our desks to ask what drink they were having this week. There was no real reason why we started desk drinks, but it was something we all looked forward to. I think one of us joked about needing a beer, and it became the norm – a way to say goodbye to the work wee...

How to keep up with technology changes

Have you ever had that feeling, where you can’t keep up? It’s like that kid that always wins the 100m. He’s always just that one step ahead. 

Technology can feel like that kid. It’s evolving at such a rapid rate that it’s hard to keep up. We get it. And you’re not alone.

How can universities prepare students for work?

Getting students ready for the world of work is critical for educators. Most high school students go on to attend university or tafe. While these years of study help to prepare students socially, there’s more that can be done to guide students into chosen careers.

This goes beyond just a few weeks of work experience or placement. In fact, many university students still don’t know what they want to do, which oft...
