Are you a good team  player?


Teamwork is “The process of working collaboratively with a group of people in order to achieve a goal. Teamwork is often a crucial part of a business, as it is often necessary for colleagues to work well together, trying their best in any circumstance. Teamwork means that people will try to cooperate, using their individual skills and providing constructive feedback, despite any personal conflict between individuals. (”)

Teamwork requires skill. Not everyone is a good team player. Some people are better leaders but not good followers. Some people can only work alone. While others do well in teams. What makes a person a good team player? The important thing is to have a sense of responsibility and cooperation. Keeping the common goal in mind and working toward achieving the team’s goals are necessary. In teams, cooperation works more than competition. Team members should never compete with each other. Instead, they should help each other and build on each other’s’ strengths while trying to negating each other’s weaknesses. In a successful team, the whole is more than the sum of the parts.

There are a few things to do to improve team function and achieve your goals efficiently. Each member should identify their strengths and weaknesses and take the role that is right for them. Roles should be delegated early, a leader chosen, and each person’s responsibilities clearly stated. The reason for the team, what the team is trying to achieve, should be clearly stated as well and it should be ensured that each member understands the goal of the team and their own responsibilities. A time frame should be set for the overall plan as well as for each major part.

It’s important for each team member to have a sense of obligation and accountability. If each member knows what their responsibilities are and strive to accomplish them, the team will be successful. Otherwise, they will be unable to achieve their goals.

Last but not least, a due date should be set for each major part of the project and on that date, it should be assessed whether team members have met their obligations, roles redistributed, and alteration should be made to the schedule based on the team’s progress.

Taking regular breaks from work is good for you.


Regular breaks from work improve productivity as well as well-being:
When you take a break, you not only boost your energy and are able to get more done in less time, but also improve the quality of your work, have better health, and can enjoy a stress-free and more joyous life! And those are just some of the benefits. Think of a break as an investment in your productivity and well-being.

The same goes for annual holiday breaks. So don’t neglect annual holidays either.

​Thus, when working:

  • Take regular breaks.
  • Don’t force yourself to work when you are tired.
  • Take short breaks often, every 40 minutes or so.
  • Even closing your eyes for a few minutes is enough to refresh you.
  • Remember that taking breaks and being stress-free is not only necessary for your work but also for your health and happiness and for the happiness of your loved ones as well.

​What are some ways you can spend your break time at work? Snacks? Taking a breath of fresh air? Chatting with a colleague? Engaging in sports? How do you spend your break time?

Managing time is important if you want to get work done and live stress free.

​Time management is simply about prioritizing work, deciding what work is important and definitely needs to get done. When you prioritize work, you can get your necessary work done, do more in less time, and feel fulfilled too.

Why you should identify your daily obligations:

​​A lot of time is spent on unnecessary things, especially in the information age where you have so many distractions. This can result in necessary tasks being left undone, which causes stress and the feeling of being overburdened ​with too much work, ​when the actual problem is poor time management.

If your day comes to an end and you feel unaccomplished, then you need to work on managing your time. Whether you’re an employed person or a job seeker, if you’re not getting important tasks done, then you need to stop and look over what’s taking your time and make necessary corrections to your schedule.

So how do you manage your time? What you need to do is to identify the few tasks that you must absolutely get done. These are “urgent and important tasks” that need to get done immediately. Other tasks may be important but not urgent – these can be done today or tomorrow or next week. While others are urgent but not important – commonly stated example is answering the telephone- and yet others are neither urgent nor important. Identifying and separating the tasks you need to get done from those that don’t need your immediate attention will help you manage your time more effectively and reduce your workload and stress levels. 

What are the two or three tasks you absolutely need to get done today? Make sure you do them. Writing those tasks in your planner will ensure you stay on target. However, limit writing down  just a few tasks. Too many will make the process useless. And remember to check your diary throughout the day and put aside everything else to get your important work done – If you can register in your mind the things you need to get done each day, it’s even better. Once you’re done with them, you can tend to other, less important tasks. In this way, you will be able to stay on target, get the necessary work done, and not overburden yourself.​​

Advancements in Technology Have Made Getting Work Done Far Easier Than Ever Before But It’s Just As Easy To Be Distracted

Technology has changed the way we work. Where we had large desktop computers taking over half the desk, we now have small gadgets like laptops and even smaller ones like tablets that have made working on the go easier. You can sit anywhere with your iPad and write an email, a note, or do a quick google search anywhere and anytime. Get an idea? Just take out your smartphone or tablet any place, and jot it down. Work couldn’t get easier. With cloud technology, you don’t even have to worry about transferring your documents and projects from one device to another. You can have them anywhere with you without needing flash disks or other gadgets. Just log into your cloud account and work on your document from any place you have access to the internet. On the other hand, it’s just as easy to be distracted by the many distractions mobile technology has brought us.

What is needed is self-motivation and resolution to getting your work done.

So what’s your excuse for not achieving your goals?

If your job doesn't give you fulfillment…

​Are you unhappy with your job?

The reason may be incorrect career planning. If your job is not in line with your long-term career plan (based on your interests), or if you don’t even have a long-term career plan, then you need to sit down and think over your career and make decisions on which way you want to go? Should you continue to take up one job after another in a hit and miss fashion, without any clear plan? Or should you carefully choose the jobs you take based on where you want to be in, say, 10 / 15 years – the jobs that will help you achieve your goals? The latter will ensure a  headache-free and more fulfilling career in the long-run as well as increase your earning potential, even if in the moment, it seems like a disadvantageous move.

Now you can plan your career path with our invaluable career guide – Mapping Your Career Path, available free simply by emailing

What are the qualities of an effective CV?


​Your CV needs to show that you’re the right person for the job you’re applying for, that you have the skills and qualifications needed to do the job well. And it needs to do this quickly and in a clear manner.

You may have years of experience that is very impressive, but having irrelevant experience on your CV – however impressive – will only clutter your CV and make it difficult for the hiring manager to know whether you’re the right job candidate. Therefore, a CV tailored to the job you are applying for, matching your qualifications with those required for the job, will make your job search more effective.

So, for your CV to be effective, it should be:
– Tailored to the job you’re applying for
– Match your qualifications with those required for the job
– Include relevant details about your career while excluding irrelevant ones
– Be presented in a clear manner.

Have your CV professionally made. See for details.
