Top ten tips

We have written some articles over the years that you might find useful to support your learning. These articles are all written in the form of Top 10 Tips. I hope you find them useful.

  • Writing Goals

    The first step to goal setting is to be really clear on what you want to acheive and why, and the best way to do this is to write your goal down. Write your goal in the positive e.g. ‘I want to make time for reflection so I am more considered in my actions and therefore more impactful’.

  • Being Resilient

    Resilience is the ability to stay balanced and to bounce back quickly from setbacks and adversity.  Resilient people stay committed and increase their efforts when the going gets tough. Some people are born naturally more resilient than others.

  • Personal Effectiveness

    Effectiveness is the ability to get the right things done with the minimum effort and maximum fun! When we are performing at our peak and being our most effective we often use words like ‘in the zone’ or ‘in flow’, as things seem effortless and we magically achieve things that we never thought possible.

  • Dealing with change

    Change is part of life, but sudden imposed changes can leave us feeling lost and uncertain. To deal effectively with the change that is happening we must acknowledge and accept what we are experiencing. This will help us to cope, learn and grow.

  • Being Assertive

    Assertiveness comes from believing that you are equal to others (not better or worse, just equal) and you can communicate assertively from this position of equality. Clear communication and body language can help but it is difficult to change the message you give out without first changing how you feel about yourself.
