Employers look for specific skills when offering promotions. What do you need to do to attain the higher position you desire? (Part 1)

You already have a job, but you’d like to be offered a better role, or have what it takes to move to a different company. So, how do you beat the competition? The answer lies in executive development. At New Careers Australia, we know the importance of continually up-skilling, and that the way in which you are coached determines how much of what you learn will be successfully adapted into your everyday working processes. The result of a great executive development program is the formation of a lasting change in how you behave, operate, and perform, which is achieved through the development of new habits designed to improve your performance, productivity, and personal leadership – the main skills employers look for when choosing whom to promote.


Most probably you’ve already attended a number of one or two-day intensive time management, leadership, or sales training courses. Undoubtedly you returned to work excited about the potential for improved outcomes, only to find that two weeks later little had changed. Even though these traditional training sessions may have contained excellent information, one’s initial enthusiasm and excitement often quickly dissipates when back in the workplace due to a limited or complete lack of opportunities for application. You then fall back into previous habits and work patterns.

Kar Yin from Leadership Management Australia – Chan (an associate of New Careers Australia) and his executive development program will create the foundation of a lasting change in how you behave, operate, and perform in your professional career.


Our programs are designed to enable a lasting, long-term effect. We work with you one step at a time, so you can take the new information you learn and apply it at your workplace. This develops new habits of higher performance and productivity, achieving greater success in your results.


We’ve all made promises and New Year’s resolutions to achieve better results or change the way we do things at work. Although these promises are made with the best of intentions, and with genuine commitment, seldom is just, ‘making the decision’ sufficient enough to enable real change. If we wish to change the results we are currently attaining, we must first understand these results are occurring because of our behaviour, and that the way we act is controlled by our attitudes and habitual thought patterns. In turn, our attitudes and habitual thought patterns have developed over time through the conditioning processes of dominant ideas and input we’ve been exposed to and affected by the most in our lives.


So, simply making the decision to improve our results or the ways in which we behave by using the information from those short, intensive courses often puts us in direct conflict with our current well-established attitudes, habitual thoughts, and self-image. We’re controlled by our habits and influenced by our self-image, so this internal conflict dramatically reduces the likelihood of successfully making the changes we desire.


To truly transform your results, one must first change his or her habits. Our development process exposes you to a practical application of ideas and information conducive to the development of new habits, so you can realise greater success.
