THE GREATER METROPOLITAN CEMETERIES TRUST VIC SSTLS William Dalgleish
Before this course, I wasn’t even aware of how to set goals Now I know the impact Goals have on our ever day life.The most Enjoyable things about the coarse was learning how to use goals mainly the seven day ones and also delegating work So that I can give lesser work to team members so I can consentrate on higher duties. I accomplished all 3 goals public speaking which I achieved at my daughters wedding (2)computer coarse which I felt has helped me in my lma and other achievements at work and the third goal was riding bike to work each morning well most due to weatherrnVICtSSTLSt2015-04-21 12:00:00.000tThe Greater Melbourne Cemetary TrusttTHE GREATER METROPOLITAN CEMETERIES TRUSTtFuneral, Crematorium and Cemetery ServicestBrendantKochtI have found that i have been able to find out some of my personal negatives and shortcomings, which i have been able to make improvements on.|I now use the daily planner to great effect, which helps to prioritise my work.|I am now spending alot more time on my high pay off activitiesrnVICtSSTLSt2015-04-21 12:00:00.000tThe Greater Melbourne Cemetary TrusttTHE GREATER METROPOLITAN CEMETERIES TRUSTtFuneral, Crematorium and Cemetery ServicestMatthewtSimmonstthe goals i achieved were using priorty lists for greater efficiency,increasing my computer skills ,.the enjoyable parts of the course was when i was feeling confronted with what i had to do and completed activities that i thought i would not be able to do i enjoyed doing the focus goals as they taught me that by writing things down help me to complete them and that i can always find the time if i want to .i liked that success is measured by attaining those steps along the way to the goal this freed up my thinking on what success actually is so now i dont get overwhelmed as much .i enjoyed doing the environmental goal.other goals achieved where getting our garden maintenance plan at home completedrnVICtSSTLSt2015-04-21 12:00:00.000tThe Greater Melbourne Cemetary TrusttTHE GREATER METROPOLITAN CEMETERIES TRUSTtFuneral, Crematorium and Cemetery ServicestJasontKnighttI would like to thank Simon , and Alka, for thier time spent with me .|They both have empowered me mentally and physically i have taken control of my work , home life balance|never before have i felt this way and so good about myself.|My achievements are many, i thought i was a good manager , i now now how far from the truth this was !|I now have been given the tools to excel|Most enjoyable aspects of the course i loved the case study’s|Measurable results were Computer skills with out a doubtrnVICtSSTLSt2015-03-31 14:00:00.000tScoresbytNILSEN (VIC) PTY LTDtNon-Residential Building ConstructiontDeettBauertI have enjoyed the diversity of the group and listening to their input and experiences.|Injected with a bit of humour it makes the learning process more enjoyable.|I have gained a more systematic and clear headed approach to my work place activities which help achieve overall success.|Whilst a more long term assessment is required, my team is running more productively, they are taking on more responsibility, morale is good and we are all aimed at a common goal of success with our projects.rnVICtSSTLSt2015-03-31 14:00:00.000tScoresbytLANDPOWER AUSTRALIA PTY LTDtSpecialised Machinery and Equipment ManufacturingtChristGiblintThis cause was an eye opener to me as I am new manger and how much time that I do wash on low pay off actives when I should sent more time on the hpa’s. Just setting smart goals you get to see the outcome as before they would just loose there purpose. Now I do list every day so I can control what needs to be done when it has to be done. I have completed 3 of my win win goals and have set more in my work and personal life.rnVICtSSTLSt2015-03-31 14:00:00.000tScoresbytALLTEL PTY LTDtTelecommunications ServicestBrooketNankint(Pasting in a portion of my graduation presentation speech, since it pretty much answers this question)||I am particularly proud of one particular business Win-Win Agreement goal that I achieved during the course, and that is the introduction of an incentive program to help motivate my team in terms of attention to detail and overall productivity, and to also show them that they are valued not only by myself but the company overall.||I was finally able to close off this goal as of a few weeks ago, after a month and a half trial period which determined that the program wasn’t enough of a challenge for the team as they were ending each month well and truly exceeding the minimum measure required to achieve the incentive. We therefore reviewed and modified the system, and now the program is well and truly in place and underway, and I am looking forward to seeing the team go above and beyond in future tasks and projects.||Some other focus goals that I have implemented throughout the last few months that have also worked toward improving the teams productivity, efficiency and attention to detail have been an Expectations Checklist and QA system.||The Expectations Checklist is exactly that: a checklist that the team must work through before submitting a task, that establishes whether or not they have met all design and usability-related requirements expected of them.||The QA process is there to doubly ensure that the team members have done this successfully. The process is simple; one team member reviews the other’s work before submission.||Putting all of these procedures in place has done wonders for overall team communication, efficiency, attention to detail and quality work output. As a result of this, the amount of rework I used to have to request of the team has reduced significantly, thus leaving me approximately 3 hours per week free to focus more on my HPAs. It has also provided a great return on investment by approximately $200 per week.||My team and managerial responsibilities aside, this course has also helped me take stock of how I approach my own work in terms of communication and time management. One of the tasks that resonated with me and that actually influences my behaviour on an almost daily basis is the Click Colours, where personality types are assigned one of four “colour” categories: The Player, The Analyser, The Carer and The Safekeeper (that’s me). By recognising which personality “colour” your team members or peers most accurately represent, you can personalise the way in with you communicate with them that best resonates with their personality, thus achieving the most valuable results. It was also fun to try and guess which “colour” each of our colleagues were.||Another tool that has also proven beneficial was de Bono’s 6 Thinking Hats. Funnily enough, this is also a colour-based metaphor. It helps me think clearly and thoroughly by directing my thinking attention in one direction at a time–white hat is facts, green hat is creativity, yellow hat is benefits, black is cautions, red hat is feelings, and blue hat is process. This exercise has helped me recognise those times when I might be thinking too much with my red hat on, at which point I quickly change tact.rnVICtSSTLSt2015-03-31 14:00:00.000tScoresbytH B FULLER CO AUSTRALIA P/LtOther Basic Chemical Product ManufacturingtAndrewtDaletMy time management has improved 10 fold and I am more happier at work and at home now (the wheel of life)I am working better with my team and better understanding of my role, and with my goals I have learnt to delegate on task which was a cost saving and at the same time it empowers my team members and gave me a lot of more time to spend on my HPAs the savings on my win win goals was over $30k, over all I become a better team leaderrnVICtSSTLSt2015-03-31 14:00:00.000tScoresbytPLACARD PTY LTDtOther Non-Metallic Mineral Product ManufacturingtShauntClissoldtBoth myself and my manager have noticed that my work performance and communication with staff have improved during the course.As part of the win-win goals I have completed tasks that previous to the course had been put off continually.
