Here are three tips for turning today’s zeros into tomorrow’s heroes…Make sure they know you want them to succeed: Ever heard of the “looking-glass self”? Some people see themselves as the version of themselves that they think others see. So if they think you think they’re less than great, they’ll see themselves in that way. If you want an employee to improve, make sure you’re encouraging and motivating anytime you’re talking to any of your employees.Stay aware: Keep a pulse on things. Don’t lose touch of what’s going on. Be ready to help when you feel it’s needed. Remember, you can keep an eye on things without being a micromanager or smothering your team’s creativity.Know the limit: You never want to fire anyone (especially if they’re really trying…) but you have to know when enough is enough. It’s never fun to let someone go, but it may be necessary. Sometimes the only way to improve your team is to trim the fat.
Yasmin Catley, Member for Swansea, said in her latest announcement that the Australian Labor Party (NSW Labor) will provide funding for a permanent dredging solution for the Swansea Channel.“This has been a long time coming and I was pleased to have my colleague, friend and Shadow Treasurer Ryan Park for Keira to announce the dredging solution,” said Catley. “This is vital for locals and tourists alike. We live on the largest salt water lake in the Southern Hemisphere and boats are getting stuck in the channel with inconsistent and insufficient dredging campaigns.“The community has raised this issue with me time and time again, and I’m pleased that a NSW Labor Government will fix the problem.”Catley added that Labor plans to invest in a “state-of-the-art dredge to ensure the safe navigability” of the channel, and would go to tender to procure a dredge that will be based at Swansea.“A dredge based at Swansea will ensure the channel is safe and navigable – not just sometimes, all the time,” concluded Catley.
