The BIG Virtual Business Quiz!

Everyone loves a quiz don’t they? What if there was a live online quiz, with a prize for the winning team with all the proceeds going to charity?
Wouldn’t you like the kudos of being the first and best virtual business quiz team in the county of Norfolk?
In collaboration with Zaks Restaurants and charity, Nelsons Journey. TIPS for Good Management, is about to launch just such an initiative in January next year.

Julian Hammond Director of TIPS for Good Management explains:
“We have been looking for a way to engage more with businesses on our online training platform which we run live from our office in Dereham. So we thought of using it to host a quiz and people would experience this fantastic method of learning whilst having fun! Since this is an exercise in awareness of what we can do we didn’t want to make money from it, and have taken the opportunity to help out a worthwhile charity.”

Zaks have kindly offered to sponsor the prize of a meal for each of the winning team and a partner. Additionally the entry fee of £50 per team will go straight to the children’s charity Nelsons Journey. They are a charity dedicated to supporting bereaved children and young people throughout Norfolk.

Right First Time - Avoiding Costly Mistakes

When things go wrong in a business, everyone loses out. Employees are frustrated at having to continually fix problems and correct mistakes, the business loses money and often the customer is affected by a reduction in quality or a late delivery. Some major business issues can start from a small error being made early on in the process, going undetected and not being corrected until it is too late. This is where Right First Time is vital if you want to avoid costly mistakes.

Dynamic Prioritisation - Urgency Vs Importance

Learning to prioritise your work is a fundamental skill of successful time management.In a busy workplace there will be many competing priorities, and occasionally some difficult decisions will need to be made about what to work on next. Additionally, there may be a number of interruptions which you need to manage in terms of how they affect your priorities.

Delegation Skills

Delegation is one of the most misunderstood management techniques. Here we will learn what it means and why it is an important management skill. We will begin by defining what we mean by delegation and some of the issues that prevent us from doing it effectively.

The Principles of Time Management

In this class, we will look at common misconceptions about time and the reality of how we choose to use our time. We will also look at some principles of time management, the benefits, and the reasons why people don’t always use time management techniques. Finally, we’ll look at how goal setting helps us to be focused with our use of time.

Dealing with Time Bandits

In this class we will look at the things that ambush our time management and consider some of the common causes of our poor use of time. We will also look at paperwork and e-mails, and consider some tips and techniques to deal with these time bandits.

Managing Meetings

In this class, we will be taking a look at one of the biggest ‘time bandits’ when it comes to ineffective use of our time – meetings. We will consider the cost of meetings, and ways to make them a more effective use of time.

Leadership Skills - Taking the Business Forward

We can all name a number of notable leaders, but what makes them leaders. By studying some real leadership examples, we can learn about the attributes that constitute effective and successful leadership. Once we define leadership attributes, it becomes possible to compare how we measure up and address any disparities we may have.

Avoiding Conflict

Our starting point is to understand what conflict means. Conflict occurs when there is a perceived difference of ideas or interests or belief that the party’s current goals cannot be achieved at the same time.

Change Management

A bend in the road, is not the end of the road, unless you fail to make the turn…… This quotation neatly summarises the nature of change. As we will see in this module, change is inevitable. What really matters is our ability to adapt to change, and where we are responsible for others, how we help them through it. Or as Charles Darwin once said: It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent; it is the one that is most adaptable to change.
