The Horror of the End of Financial Year – Looking back

The financial year is over (at least in Australia), long live the new financial year.

Some of you may have noticed the lack of posting by me over the last few weeks, while I have been away on a number of courses, mostly around psychometric evaluation tools, it has been the end of the financial year and all of the joy *cough* that it brings that has really kept me occupied.  Interestingly now that it is over and we are moving forward for 2013-14 when I look back over the last 12 months it has been a very very busy time, and a lot has been achieved.

We delivered more then 250 programs to over 4000 participants, made the CLO learning Elite list, won a LearnX award and generally just tried to keep ourselves moving forward.

So what have I learnt over the last 12 months, keeping everyone happy is almost impossible, there is always going to need to be negotiations about what can be done and when and sometimes you just have to accept that some people are going to be upset, unhappy and even angry about decisions, change and the general state of play and there is not a lot that you can do about it.

So what are the plans going forward, consolidation mostly, really trying to solidify our position and our offerings and maintain our engagement with the organisation and our participants.

Looks like it is going to be another big year.
