Blogging with TrainingZone


As Jon mentioned in the Editor's Blog, you may have noticed some changes following TrainingZone’s big upgrade. The most major of these changes is the removal of Discussion Groups. If you previously ran a group, we want to apologise for not making you aware of this sooner. Unfortunately, while we’ve been seeing more and more excellent content from members on the site, groups were very quiet when compared to other areas, especially Any Answers and Blogs.

Writing a resume with no experience? It’s not a problem!

  Sitting behind the white sheet of paper where your newly created resume should be written can make any person confused how to start and what to start with. It is even more complicated, if it is the first resume. Also may frighten the fact that employer needs approximately six seconds to make a conclusion whether he is interested in this employee’s resume or not. A lot of students don’t know what information the resume should consist of. But that’s very easy.

Blogging With Your Own Voice - 7 Tips

In my last blog I bemoaned the fact that a lot of communication is bland – opinions hidden under a cloak of meekness. In this blog, I want to look at the impact that has on, well, blogs.


Blogging gives us the opportunity to let our individual voices be heard. It enables us to let the world know who we are; what, if you like, our personal brand is all about.

What is conveyancing?

As a prospective property owner, searching for a dream house or property to build can be a stressful and exciting time. Knowing the legal process of the buying and selling part of the transaction is a must. After finding a dream home, the buyer does not want to lose out due to not knowing the legal process surrounding the purchase of property. The final process needs to be completed in a legal format which involves the use of conveyancing. Searching for a reliable company for conveyancing advice prior to looking for the right property is a step in the right direction.  

Future England cricket captain - work on your strengths

Focus on your strengths – they’re what got you where you are.  Easily said, harder to do.  When debriefing 360 feedback the majority of executives will “hunt the negative”.  Finding the criticism in the report and either moving defensively against it or wrestling with it to see how they can improve.  But you didn’t get to be the senior leader because of your weaknesses, you got there because of your strengths.  Building from your strengths rather than over-focusing on your weaknesses makes sense.

Managing Different People

If we were all the same it would be boring, wouldn’t it?!

It’s a nice idea in principle, but I’m sure some leaders would love the chance to be bored for a while by managing a low maintenance team.

Operating in a competitive climate of pressure, pace and expectation accentuates individual personalities and we have to find a way to manage them.

When it comes to our leadership style, we accept that one size can’t fit all but equally are we really expected to design every management intervention from scratch.
