TFM MagazineDoes South Africa still discriminate as a society?

The desired outcome of diversity is a path of engagement; shifting all preconceived notions, of our ‘learned behaviour’. This will nurture and promote equality, providing all with the potential to succeed.  Although companies are obligated to pull resources from a wide pool of potential employees, promoting diversity and integrating people with disabilities is more than legislative compliance, it is a moral issue with ethical significance.

Budgeting ArticleTwo of our trainers Mpho Mohatle and Fana Usiba represented Avo in Business Training at the Florida Regional Library, Mpho presented most of the programme and had his audience in stitches with his realistic, go-getter approach about money and the way South Africans interact with it.”Some South Africans earn R40 000 a month and are poor at the end of the month because they don’t take care of themselves and their hard-earned cash.  You are the person who works; you make the effort, you earn the money - so pay yourself first.”

Jules Newton‘It’s all terribly simple’, says Jules Newton.  We know not everything is in the hands of a manager so the team needs to understand this little nugget.  There are systems and processes that cannot be changed, but communication between manager and team is vital and should stay open without any agenda.

Jules points out 5 simple points which a manager should be doing to help improve the performance of a reluctant team:

  1. Listen more than you talk
  2. Ask questions and then listen
  3. Remove the obstacles to your team’s productivity and empower
  4. Delegate in order to empower
  5. Keep learning
