HELLO 2018

Welcome back to a brand new year!

We hope everyone enjoyed the break (if you had one), and we also hope you are as excited as we are to be back at work (yes, really)!

Over the Christmas shutdown, CTS staff enjoyed time with friends, family, summer sports and travelling, so w e are all refreshed and ready to continue another great year of professional services and training with our valued clients.

If you have training, professional development or qualification goals for 2018, we would love to hear from you! Give CTS a call on 9791 6611 to discuss. 

NEW WEBSITE!

Karen has been busy! This year we have already launched our new CTS website. 

The site has lots of great features and is super easy to navigate. 

One of our favourite features is the new online booking system which allows visitors to register individuals or groups to our courses, share the event and save the booking to your calendars. 


NEED MORE CAPABLE SUPERVISORS?

FB followers may have caught John's latest post about coaching and organisational development projects. 
 
Essentially, he has time to add one more such project to his schedule. 
 
If your business needs to build better supervisors, implement new ways of doing business or lowering your workers compensation premiums, please call John on 0427 986 954 or  you can email for an obligation free discussion. 

E-LEARNING GOALS FOR 2018

This year, CTS are ramping up efforts to provide new online learning services to our clients. 

Students will soon be able to do away with third party learning resources and have access to a complete e-learning experience, with the same support and trainer collaboration you have come to expect from CTS. Visits will still occur in the workplace (where relevant), and skill observations will still be performed. 

We are currently working on moving our Certificate III in Business program online, and will start on other Business and Leadership qualifications in the coming months. 

If you are an existing Business student and would like to know which units are currently available, please get in touch!

PRODUCTIVITY APPS
While there are hundreds of apps claiming to help us become more productive, efficient and organised, the reality is it can be hard to find the right app to suit your particular needs, and get excited enough to use on a regular, continued basis. 

Did you know, some apps have allowed businesses to scrap their internal email use altogether?Modern businesses have found that the use of cloud-based applications has given them a new ability to channel work discussions and boost transparency as work teams collaborate more effectively and openly than ever before. 

Admin CTS have been using ASANA since 2016 to organise team projects and daily, weekly and monthly tasks. It is an excellent hub for collating documents, task details and communications relating to specific jobs or broader strategies. 

Through this easy to use app, we can assign people to projects, issue due dates or self-manage our own workload. We are also able to access our tasks and communications through our desktops and mobile devices too! Although we haven't used many of the available integrations, it is still a powerful tool for business or personal use even in it's more basic form.
