    On the Job by Anita Bruzzese
    17 Jun 2015 | 8:22 am
    When you were a kid, your mom probably asked you to say the “magic word” when requesting something.  You quickly found out that saying “please” could get you what you wanted.But Tim Davis, a professional magician and communications expert, says there are actually seven magic words backed up by science that can help you persuade, influence and engage others. By knowing the right thing to say, you’ll be able to get your team to perform better and get others to make concessions when negotiating. He says it’s a technique he has taught to companies such as 3M and Burger King.Davis…

      It’s like Meryl Streep auditioning for the community theater production of “Our Town.” Or, Jim Harbaugh applying to coach the local Pop Warner team.  Perhaps you’ve had the feeling or you’ve been told that you are overqualified for a job that you want. It may not seem fair. But that’s life.  You have to accept it or do something about it. The key piece of advice is to focus on the benefits that you bring to the employer. When an employer perceives self-benefit you are moving in the right direction.   I have more specific guidance in another article…

    This is a guest post by Sarah Landrum. A strong commitment to lifelong learning has a large impact on the growth one experiences in his or her field. Growing in your career means you are seeking knowledge and experience that will push you forward and stretch you into new places. The key is to maximize “downtime” by seeing it as an opportunity to develop thought processes, implement change or bring about opportunities that excite and motivate. Yes, those who look for ways to push their work beyond what’s expected of them are the ones who create positions that are influential and…

    You ever see someone doing something that looks ridiculously easy?

  • What neurologists tell us about goal setting

    Penelope Trunk
    30 Jun 2015 | 9:10 am
    You should set goals because striving to meet a goal makes you happier. This is because a goal gives us structure and purpose, but also once you set a goal, your brain feels like you have already attained that goal. (This explains the euphoria we feel when we decide to “start a diet.”) 1. Our brain thinks we are finished before we start. We need to be very careful setting goals. Our brain is hard-wired to get very upset when we lose something we already have, so we get upset when we don’t actually reach the goal. And, the bigger the potential for positive growth a goal…

    This course includes four days of video sessions and email-based course materials.  The course is live July 26 – 29 8pm Eastern. The cost is $195. Sign up now. The person I spend more time with than anyone else right now is Carla. She is an INFJ. And, I confess, I said I’d never work with an INFJ, because they are too hard to manage. But I retract everything after working closely with one. I met Carla when I was interviewing for someone to help me in my garden and the biggest qualification was that they didn’t talk to me. Carla was fine with that. She wanted time to…

    The first thing I see when I look at this photo is my son’s mustache. It’s wispy but pronounced enough to show in a photo. I told him a few weeks ago that it’s time to shave. He said, “Mom. You’re embarrassing me. Don’t talk about my body hair.” So I didn’t bring it up again but about a week later, he said, “Mom, I think I need to start shaving.” I said, “Okay” and we bought a razor.

    When I ask my coaching clients what they’d do if they were millionaires, I ask with the understanding that really, anything they really want to be doing they could do right now. Here’s how the conversation goes. I’ll do it for me. Like, I’m the coach and I’m the client. What would you do if you didn’t need to work? I’d have a Pilates teacher and a yoga teacher live in houses on the farm and they’d give me a lesson each day. Otherwise I don’t think I’d change anything. Oh. Hire a gardener. And a cleaning person to come every day.

    The first year we lived on the farm, my son showed pigs. He did okay (and I got one of my favorite posts of all time). But he realized that the county fair is not about pigs, it’s about social skills. You have to be able to guess what traits of a pig the judges will like this year, which requires talking to neighbors and pig feed sales guys who come by the farm. It’s a networking thing: “How’s the weather? How are hogs this year?” Even crops can be subjective. Should beans be more green or more consistently shaped? Should the cauliflower be presented with or…

    Brittle. Slow. Bureaucratic.These are the terms that Jason Jennings uses to describe the companies that have fallen by the wayside since the Fortune 500 was first published in 1955. In the last 60 years, the majority of those original companies are gone.Jennings, author of “The High-Speed Company,” says that managers must create a sense of urgency and growth in this “nanosecond culture,” or find themselves in the same boat as Sears and Kmart. (He compares these companies to “witnessing a train wreck in slow motion.”)The key for managers, he says, is that they must create…

  • Networking for Introverts: How to Overcome Networking Dread

    George Mount

    As an introvert, you may have written off networking. Inserting yourself into a noisy room of strangers sounds horrible. The commotion of the event drains you. You hate small talk. And even when you’ve found agreeable people, you can’t think of anything to say. To their detriment, many introverts give up on networking and leave it to the extroverts. Time to turn the tables: introverts can become great networkers.

  • 3 Compelling Reasons Millennials Should Consider Nonprofit Jobs

    Alexandra Mitchell
    22 Jun 2015 | 10:00 am
    On any given day, you can check the news and hear that “things are getting better.” The economy is rebounding and job prospects are on the rise. Consumers are gaining confidence and so it finally looks like there’s a light at the end of the Great Recession tunnel. This optimism is true for most people, but if you’re a Millennial (born between the early 1980s and early 2000s), the future is still not looking so bright. The Millennial generation is the largest and most educated generation in history, and yet they’re far less likely to secure jobs than their Gen X counterparts. More…

It can be difficult, if not impossible, to disconnect for a second from this whirlwind of activity to find true inspiration in our work. But finding meaning in work is more important than we realize. Thirty percent of Millennials said finding “meaning” in their work matters more than salary, according to a recent study, and more than 70 percent of Millennials feel that meaningful work is one of the three most important factors…

    Uber, the car service that’s sweeping the globe, is facing one of the biggest challenges of its young life but workers everywhere should take notice, not just Wall Street. A California court recently deemed one of its drivers an employee and not an independent contractor, and that means the driver may now be eligible for everything from minimum wage to expenses reimbursement. This from a Bloomberg article on the ruling: The ruling by the agency headed by Commissioner Julie Su, an appointee of Governor Jerry Brown, was filed in San Francisco state court Tuesday. It stemmed from a wage…
  • On-Call Workforce Isn’t Always a Good Call

    The growing use of on-call staffing is being scrutinized for undermining employees’ economic security and work-life fit. The latest probe comes from New York’s Attorney General Eric Schneiderman whose office sent letters to 13 large retailers saying that the practice may not be complying with state laws. This from the letter, via a Wall Street Journal article published today: Unpredictable work schedules take a toll on all employees, especially those in low-wage sectors. Without the security of a definite work schedule, workers who must be “on call” have difficulty making…

    Does your survey shed new light on work and the organization? Employee engagement surveys are instruments to penetrate the blackness of our knowledge about our employees’ attitudes and perspectives about work. They should offer insight leading to action leading to increased employee engagement leading to real improvement in other key metrics we want for our organization and for our employees.  Yet often the results seem to get sucked into a black hole, employees are poorly informed about the survey results, and even employee comments made on the survey are kept secret.

    If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend six sharpening my axe.--Abraham Lincoln We never outgrow our need to be persuasive. Managers have to persuade employees to "get on board" with a new idea or change; salespeople get paid to persuade customers to buy; and potential customers persuade salespeople that a change in the "deal" just might make them a paying customer. We're all faced with the challenge of persuasion and influencing.

    22 Jun 2015 | 7:32 am
    The notion of Employee Engagement has been with us for a while now. I noticed in a meeting last week that everyone was passionate when we started discussing "engagement". But the longer we talked, the less I was convinced that we were talking about the same thing. In fact, we all had a personal, sensible, gut level idea of what it meant. But the "definition gap" emerged when we began talking about how to approach the issue. Predictable, actually. Whenever you find yourself in disagreement about "how" to do something, it's a signal to back up a step andagree on a common definition of "what"…

The original experiment and its impact on management and human behavior are timeless.  In the 1920s, physiologist Elton Mayo conducted experiments at the Hawthorne Electrical Works in Chicago. He was trying to confirm his theory that better lighting led to greater productivity. So, he had the lights on the factory floor turned up. Voila! As he expected, production levels increased, too.

    "Developing Others" ranks dead last on just about every organizational skill level survey with which I've been involved or have read.  It's not because people lack awareness of its importance; quite the contrary. It's because development takes time. It involves getting to know people and their capabilities at more than a surface level. To develop people, you have to follow a few fundamental steps. Here's How To Begin 1. Start with an accurate picture of the person's strengths and weaknesses. They can't grow if they don't have good information about themselves. And managers can't help them…

    Since people who couldn’t attend have been asking me about the recent Conscious Heart Workshop last month, I’ll share some details about how it turned out, both from my perspective and that of the attendees. As a refresher, what was unique about this workshop (our 11th since 2009) is that there was no pre-set theme and no pre-planned content or structure. The idea was to go with the flow of inspiration all the way through. It was also intended to be a co-creative event, meaning that attendees could influence how it turned out if they felt inspired to do so. Let’s start with…

We can let the forge do its job on its own. But we also have the option to consciously participate in the process if we feel ready for that. We can collaborate with the forge in order to have a say in what we’re becoming. Recently I attended a workshop by author/speaker Tim Freke. Tim shared an idea that resonated with me. First he noted the conception that when we die, some people imagine that…

    Call it what you will—persistence, determination, toughness, tenacity, mule-like stubbornness. By any name, it’s the single biggest determinant of job-search results. No job-search strategy trumps a person’s sheer ability to keep at it. Why is that? What makes it hard to persist? And what can you do about it? The single biggest problem you face as a job seeker is not finding the typos in your resume or selecting the right font. It’s not deciding if you should go with the red tie or the blue tie for an interview, or figuring out what type of handshake makes people trust you.

    "The Villain Is The Person Who Knows The Most, But Cares The Least." --From Chuck Klosterman In I Wear The Black Hat When it comes to Employee Relations, any investigation you do of general bad stuff is going to uncover a lot of ugly things.  Human nature takes over and people do things they shouldn't. However, at times you still need to look at all the bad in any situation and determine, who's really responsible?  Who is the bad guy/gal in this situation? I think this quote gives us the best guidance in those situations.  The true villain is the person who knew the…

With a little work, you can become a dat- driven HR pro.  You just need to think outside the box, do a little work and then be willing to use the data to force people into interesting conversations.

Until recently, if you were in the job market, a headhunter or colleague might refer you for a specific position, then it would be up to you to dazzle a prospect with your intelligence, charm, and suitability — in person. These days, headhunters, hiring managers and business prospects are likely to look you up online and believe what they find there.

  • A Recruiter’s Boxing Match When Sourcing for High Volume Talent by @RecruiterMG

    Matthew Goetz
    6 Jul 2015 | 9:43 am
    Recruiters: ever have a day that makes you feel like you were in the ring with Floyd Mayweather for 12 rounds? The high volume daily grind can feel a lot like a boxing match, leaving us against the ropes, exhausted, and unsure we can take any more hits from our opponent’s powerful blows. Yet our teams and clients need us to go another round with time in order to win the fight against high volume expectations. High-volume recruiting, like boxing, is a delicate art form. Both require technique, strategy, rigorous training and hours of dedication to exceed expectations. We need to be proactive…

    Approximately 10 million Americans work in the restaurant industry, and it is one of the few industries where wages can legally be below the federal minimum wage of $7.25/hr. Current U.S. Department of Labor figures shows 19 states still pay restaurant workers the bare “federal tipped minimum wage” of $2.13/hr, with only 7 states requiring a wage above the federal minimum. The remaining 24 states fall in the middle of that spectrum. For decades, it has been expected that servers, busers, managers, and the like earn the bulk of their wages through tips.

  • Appellate Court Throws Out Labor Department’s Internship Test

    By Eric B. Meyer If you thought you knew when to pay (or not pay) an intern, think again. A federal appellate court just blew up the U.S. Department of Labor’s spot. Allow me to explain. The Labor Department’s six-part internship test In 1947, the U.S. Supreme Court recognized that certain unpaid workers should not be treated as employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act. This matters because the FLSA generally requires that “employees” receive minimum wage and premium overtime pay. Some 20 years later, the Labor Department distilled the facts of the Supreme Court’s decision…

    “The only number that matters is ‘one.’ One cup. One customer. One partner. One experience at a time. We had to get back to what mattered most.” I am a big fan of Howard Schultz, the CEO of Starbucks. In reading this statement above, Schultz described how his company faltered and lost its way. It strayed from coffee into a host of activities which basically begin the slow drip of non-profitability.

    For hundreds of years, managers have owned the hiring process. However, as more firms learn the benefits of shifting away from top-down decision-making and toward a collaborative model, it’s time to rethink the manager’s sole ownership of this critical business process. In the Silicon Valley, we frequently operate under a different hiring model known as “collaborative hiring” or “team-based hiring,” which involves most members of the team in the hiring process.

  • Starbucks Is Raising Prices On Almost All Drinks

    James Kosur
    6 Jul 2015 | 12:52 pm
    Starbucks is raising prices on Tuesday with most drinks receiving a 1% increase. The company’s price hike will range from $0.05 and $0.20 per drink. According to the Associated Press, The cost of “venti” brewed coffee will increase by $0.10 to $2.45 in most US markets. Despite protests from customers, this marks the third year in a row that Starbucks has raised prices. Starbucks raised prices in June of 2014, when the cost of raw coffee was soaring. However, coffee prices have fallen since that time, while the company has continued to fight against rising labor and rent…

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the injuries are not career threatening, despite some confusion over the severity of the accident when it was first reported. However, Pierre-Paul has suffered some burns and possible nerve damage to one of his fingers. Following the fireworks accident the Giants rescinded a long-term, $60 million offer.

    Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has resigned. The move has surprised many analysts because Yanis had promised to step aside only if the people of Greece voted yes to Sunday’s referendum that would have delivered a bailout package from European creditors. Varoufakis stepped into the role of finance minister in January and for the last several weeks he has been rallying support around a “no” vote leading up to the referendum. Before Greece citizens voted Varoufakis promised to step down if the Greek people voted “yes” to further austerity. 61% of Greeks…

It’s unclear what will happen next but by understanding why Greece is so fed up with Europe, we might get a bit more insight into the future of the country as well as the continent. Why Greece voted No Greeks have been, to put it mildly, fed up with the austerity policies demanded of it by the so-called Troika (the European Central Bank, International Monetary Fund, and European Commission).

  • The fundamental unfairness of the vacation auto reply

    Alexander
    3 Jul 2015 | 3:37 am
    With the summer holidays rapidly approaching, I’ve been thinking a lot about vacation auto replies. Here’s the problem: Although anyone who sends you a mail is told not to expect a reply until you get back, they probably still expect an answer at that point. This is fundamentally unfair. You’re away from work. As part of your contract with the company, you have some time off and yet some of the work from your vacation time is thereby shifted into your post-vacation work days. And I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a company that plans for their employees…

    Alexander
    1 Jul 2015 | 3:24 am
    I once worked with a large insurance company, where the claims handling employees were measured on a number of factors, including average customer wait time on the phone. This is a very typical metric or KPI for call centers and customer service centers but it suffers from one fundamental flaw: That number is outside of the control of the employees. The math is simple: Wait time depends on how many calls come in minus the number of calls employees handle. The latter is something employees can control, the first one is completely outside of their control. Wait times = calls coming in…

    After years of horror stories—and lawsuits—about interns working grueling hours and long workweeks, it’s refreshing to hear about a company that has changed its policies to prevent its hand-picked college interns from burning out over the hot summer. There will be no more all-nighters or work-through weekends for interns at Goldman Sachs, according to Reuters, which broke the story. The company’s new policy has banned interns serving as analysts and associates from working earlier than 7 a.m. or later than midnight—and they cannot work on Saturdays.

Don’t get me wrong, we got along most of the time. But our work relationship suffered. No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t seem to psych myself up.

Perhaps it will be good luck for you, too. In this post, I’m giving away a round-trip ticket anywhere in the world. But back to that strange birthday gift… Much to the chagrin of my momma-san, I’ve become difficult to buy presents for. Some friends even think I’m impossible to find presents for. Not so. I love handwritten letters, homemade brownies, and–most of…

    The conventional job market is filled with conventional jobs, unless you’re a larger-than-life personality or in the top half-percent productivity-wise, the difficulty in getting from graduation to a career-track job is getting noticed.

    My family’s economic future has been entirely upended over the last couple of weeks. You wouldn’t think that would happen in an economy that’s producing jobs better than the year 2000.

    It’s clear that office design significantly impacts the performance of employees.

  • Untangling the Identity

    Eric
    20 Jun 2015 | 3:43 am
    Considering my post from yesterday, I thought it appropriate to put this one out again.   Identity is one of the best barometers of who a person really is. It defines us even if we deny or look the other way. When the world in which we live starts defining us, the tangles begin. Key in my story is the untangling of my identity. Much of the tangles in my identity came from performance and a craving for affirmation. I’ll spare you and this page of all of what and where it came from. I want to use this time to talk about untangling identity and its next door neighbor, the real you/me.

It is sobering and provoking. Here’s what I did with it: I looked back and reflected on my pursuits I made a list of my successes and lined them up in two different categories (what matters and what doesn’t).

    Most organizations, these days, are speaking the language of happiness. For some entities it’s just talk, for others a striving everyday. Employee happiness and engagement are connected. Maybe it’s obvious for you. I come from a view that says your company is not responsible for your happiness. Only you can own that. Whether it’s changing roles, transferring geographically or firing your boss with your feet, it still comes back to you. Why are so many employees unhappy? My answers: Employees make choices that lead to unhappiness. On the whole, we live unbalanced and…

The reality of loss is not an age-related thing, though our culture still sells the BS of loss is for the older crowd. I value what I’ve lost. I hear Joni Mitchell in my head singing “well somethings lost and somethings gained in living everyday.” Our best remedy is the art of reflection and being. The consequence of reflecting and being, is you can’t be so distracted and doing in…

    “It’s a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy.” – Lucille Ball There have been many things that I’ve chased in my life: certifications, promotions, friendships, health, security, clarity, confidence…the list goes on. It’s only recently, however, that I discovered that the only thing that I really needed to chase was joy. We live in a society that tends to value achievement over fulfillment and busyness over inner peace. We feel pressured to always be working towards a goal. Always creating, building, and striving. We really aren’t encouraged to take time…

    I have been focused on growth for as long as I can remember. I used to spend my time walking to and from work trying to think up an exit strategy for my life. Everyday, in the morning and in the afternoon, each walk consoled by a cup of coffee and a cigarette that burned way too fast for my taste. For breaks, I’d sneak down to take deeper breaths–hands shaking, and roaming the street corners for patience. Completely out of the present moment, I’d dread the week, aching through its entirety, only breathing as I’d walk out of work for the few hours I had free. But…

    Fear. Doubt. Insecurity. Sleepless nights. A neverending sea of “what ifs”… I’m not alone in saying that the amount of hours I’ve spent worrying about my personal finances is in the triple digits. Can I support a family? Will I always be in debt? Will I have enough to retire? Can I live the lifestyle I want to live without pinching every…single… penny…? These emotions, these questions, just a few short years ago, were all at the forefront of my mind almost every single day. But fast forward to now, and essentially all of that worry is gone.

    “Ring the bells that still can ring; forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” – Leonard Cohen People used to call me the Ice Queen years ago, and I took it as a compliment. They thought I had it all together. I drove myself to appear perfect at whatever I did. And not because I felt confident. But to cover up feeling like a complete failure. I was convinced no one would like the real me. The one who made mistakes. The one who wasn’t always smart. The one who even – gasp! –  goofed off, which was akin to a mortal…

    I’ve talked before about how responsiveness – or lack thereof – can make or break your reputation at work. Typically, I complain about people who never answer emails unless there’s something in it for them at that moment, or who take weeks to do so. However, it turns out that most people’s definition of responsiveness is even stricter than I would have thought. It turns out that your colleagues don’t want to wait for you at all.

    2 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    During the recession of the late aughts, organizations laid off a ton of employees. Many of them didn’t replace these people, but the amount of work remained. Nearly seven years since the recession began, individual American professionals are feeling the fatigue of doing the jobs of two or three former colleagues. In their State of Workplace Productivity Report, Cornerstone on Demand cites the results of a new study demonstrating that nearly 70 percent of American employees are suffering from an overabundance of work, and two-thirds feel that work overload is the…
  • New Study Shows What Successful Job Seekers Do Right

    Alexandra Levit
    29 Jun 2015 | 5:00 am
    In late 2014, the Career Advisory Board’s Job Preparedness Indicator study revealed a startling fact: only 7 percent of hiring managers feel that most job seekers have the right combination of skills and traits needed to fill open positions. This means that while the market is robust and candidates are flooding pipelines, a company might interview 25 people and hire no one. It’s very rare that a candidate applies for whom hiring managers can check all the boxes. In the interest of providing actionable advice to job seekers, we set out to discover what candidates who are perceived as the…

    A topic that is close to our collective heart is the self-managed team. A self-managed team is a group of employees that's responsible and accountable for all or most aspects of producing a product or delivering a service, and according to the Houston Chronicle, 80 percent of Fortune 1000 companies use them in some capacity. Self-managed teams are licensed by a senior leader to operate independently and are given the resources necessary to meet pre-determined business objectives. Some of the benefits we've observed are as follows:Streamlined Operations One of…

    John Sullivan is one of the most respected HR thought leaders in the world. I have been reading and citing his ideas forever, and love getting his articles through my ERE.net subscription.  John tends to put forth ideas slightly before they catch on in the mainstream, and that’s why my interest was piqued when he introduced the single-day hiring process. We all know that hiring takes too long. By the time your organization gets it together enough to make an offer, a top candidate has gone somewhere else.  Unemployment rates are dropping rapidly, and no one has the time to sit by…

But for the rest of the world… there’s no question. Thanks to Mark Mehler and team at CareerXroads, who put together a fake resume each year and send apply for jobs at companies listed on Fortune’s “best companies to work for” list, we can see how these best companies treat applicants.

    I started JibberJobber as a frustrated job seeker.  While other people use JibberJobber, including entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, people who don’t work (but want to manage their network), I regularly go back to my roots as a frustrated job seeker. I wanted to organize my job search with a spreadsheet, but that didn’t work out.  It was a mess.  A rat’s nest.  What if you just give up, and wing it?  Impossible. Once you get deep enough in your job search, you have to stay organized, or else too many opportunities get lost. I’m not talking about job offerings,…

    One of the biggest challenges I’ve seen in the last nine years since I’ve lost my job and communicated with thousands of job seekers is a misunderstanding of who they are.  Too often people think “I’m unemployed,” and that label needs to be their brand.  For example, when I had a job, my introduction was: “I’m Jason Alba, the General Manager of this company.” Then, when I lost my job, it changed to: “I’m Jason Alba, and I’m…. uh… uh… In transition?  Unemployed?” However you say that new thing, let me…

I choose to travel most of the time. I don’t have to do work that requires me to travel. I could choose to do work that I spend nearly 100 percent of my time at home. I don’t have to speak. I don’t have to go to conferences. Most of the time, I don’t have to go meet clients in person. So as I travel to Orlando this week to attend Globoforce’s WorkHuman, a neat conceptual HR conference…

There seems to be a growing group of people who look a lot like us: two people who want to not just continue working because they need to, but two people who would like to keep moving up in their careers. After baby arrives, some couples choose to have one spouse stay at home. We’ve had a few friends who have done that and it’s seemed to work out well for them. We know others who spent some time away from work but ultimately returned. For…

    When I started in corporate HR, I was pretty lost. I leaned heavily on my manager, a network of local practitioners I established quickly, a scattered, online group of talent professionals, and every resource I could find to read. It was haphazard and the phrase, “fake it till you make it,” rang through my ears loud and clear on my walk or ride home from work. It was a different time. One that we shouldn’t have to repeat again. Yet, time and time again, HR practitioners are starting the same things over again. They search forums and blog posts for things like: How can we…

And maybe you’re now waiting for the new iPhone 6s so you can upgrade to a better device—and a better life—and be happier and sexier and more fun. (Whatever. Good luck with that.) Some people think that our devices (including phones, cars, televisions and even microwaves) are planned to fall apart. That’s part of a theory called planned obsolescence.

And there’s another thing you need to know: I love Jim Rohn quotes, but I don’t always get them right. (Close enough, I say!) So I was in a car, a few weeks ago, with a human resources consultant who also happens to be a dear friend.

    I get calls on a regular basis to provide formal and informal references on people in my industry. First things first: reference checks are not background checks. Reference checks are subjective. Reference checks are unreliable and invalid ways of measuring someone’s knowledge, skills and abilities. Reference checks are what you do when you want to know if someone is a jerk. Background checks give you facts like name, rank and serial number. You’ll learn about prior convictions and educational achievements. The difference between a background check and a reference check is…

    29 Jun 2015 | 4:30 am
    When senior managers announce a significant change, their goal is to get employees on board in the hope that they will embrace and support the change. When employees react with confusion, fear, uncertainty, or question the change, managers mistakenly see this behavior as “resisting change”.  They forget that they went through the exact same process. They had more time to deal with it and are now ready to move on.This “lagging effect” of how people respond or organizational change is called “The Marathon Effect”. It’s an important change model for leaders to understand…

    Listening is one of those behaviors that most people take for granted. Until, that is, they miss something very important that impacts their job and career. So when interviewing for a developmental client, I inevitably ask about my client's listening skills. Nearly always the first response is that the client is a "good listener." Then I start chunking the listening competency, ultimately revealing the client's listening failures. The chunks start with a question about "parroting," then to paraphrase, summary, and on to implication questions including the…

And furthermore, even the best listeners have to bite their tongues to stop from reacting, interrupting or verbally identifying with the person talking. But there are a few simple ways to make certain your listening is truly effective. Effective listeners listen for different levels of meaning. The linguistic level is simply that to which the message refers. “Jim can’t come to the team meeting.” The individual words of…

  • A Message to Garcia and Your Career

    Harrison Barnes
    6 Jul 2015 | 12:00 am
    One of the most inspiring true stories I have ever read is A Message to Garcia, by Elbert Hubbard. It is a short essay that discusses the initiative of a soldier who is assigned a difficult mission of delivering a message and comes through, completing this very difficult task. In the essay, the soldier does not ask any questions, object to the assignment, nor request help; he simply gets the job done. The essay was first published in the March 1899 issue of Philistine magazine and soon thereafter was reprinted as a pamphlet and a book. In both World War I and World War II the article was…
  • Parking Benefits and Falling in Love with Your Job

    Harrison Barnes
    3 Jul 2015 | 12:00 am
    As unfortunate as it is, most working people seem to fall in love with themselves instead of falling in love with their job, clients, customers, and bosses. In this one fact these people have severely crippled themselves. Your entire career will change when you conceive of your career not as benefiting you alone, but as enhancing the lives of your clients, customers, and bosses. No one hires you because they want you to make a lot of money. No one hires you because they want you to feel important. No one hires you because they are concerned about your welfare more than their own. Instead, you…
  • You Need to Pay the Cost

    2 Jul 2015 | 12:00 am
    I have been working since the time I was around 9 years old. When I was 9 years old, I wrote my age down illegibly on an employment application so that I could get a job delivering newspapers for the Detroit News. At the time, you needed to be 11 in order to get a job delivering the afternoon newspaper.  Within a few years, I also got a job delivering the morning newspaper, The Detroit Free Press. I took on the largest paper routes my managers would allow me to have and, within a few years, was delivering hundreds of papers per day. The volume of papers on some days was so great that my…
  • Induction, Deduction, and Your Career

    Harrison Barnes
    1 Jul 2015 | 12:00 am
    When you look at the way something has been in the past to draw conclusions about the way something always will be, or always is, you are using inductive reasoning. A standard example of induction would be: All grass examined thus far is green. This leads us to conclude (using induction) that all future grass we see will be green and every piece of green grass we see in the future will strengthen this belief. For example, you likely believe that a flame will burn you if you touch it. Similarly, just about everyone believes that if they jump in the water they will get wet. The beliefs we have…

    30 Jun 2015 | 3:00 am
    I remember growing up around kids with books of puzzles and games in elementary school and junior high school; these were always the kinds of kids that did not fit in. They also got beat up after school, were awkward during gym class, got pushed around on the playground, and sat alone or in small groups looking like outcasts during lunch. They would sit there all through the lunch hour screwing around with these little puzzle books. The kids doing the puzzles would draw the grimaces of other so called “cool” kids. On the weekends these kids who liked their puzzle books would spend…

    We tend to feel uncomfortable or embarrassed in situations at work where we’re unsure of what to say – such as appropriate language when discussing disabilities. While there is no official consensus about disability language, it’s important to know how to respectfully address individuals with disabilities, and make an effort to ensure they’re included at all times. Everyone has their own views and opinions; some words might offend while others will be appreciated. In my experience, the language and phrases discussed below tend to be appropriate for the workplace. Use “People…

    17 Jun 2015 | 10:29 am
    As mentioned in previous articles, Millennials will make up an estimated 75% of the workforce by 2025. Countless studies, reports and articles have focused on the differences (and difficulties) surrounding hiring and retaining Gen Y employees in the workforce. Matthew Goldman of Entrepreneur.com makes the argument that maybe we shouldn’t be focusing on the fact that they are Millennials, but more on the fact that they are simply young. Goldman provides the typical descriptors for Gen Y, “entitled, narcissistic, idealistic, lazy, unfocused and spineless to name just a few.”…

    We have already visited a few different topics on Millennial hiring – job hopping, money  matters, what to keep in mind, and what to avoid. Focusing on a specific subset, we will examine the differences in hiring Millennial women and their impact on the workforce. According to Women Powering Business, the latest U.S. Census shows a total of 60 million Millennials in the United States alone, half of which are women. This accounts for those born between 1982 and 1994 specifically. By 2025, Millennials will make up 75% of the workforce and over half of them will be women. Also consider…

    In the last week’s article, we shared a few points to keep in mind when considering hiring Millennials, given by Inc.com’s Evan Burns. Looking at the flipside, Burns offers up what you should avoid where Gen Y is concerned. DON’T: Think millennials will join your company if time = seniority. Position your company by showing that the only limit to growth is based on results, and show examples of success stories in your organization, too. If those results are clear it puts the responsibility on the individual to perform. If employees are confident from day one, they will take…

  • How to Say 'No' at Work Without Sounding Like a Jerk

    U.S.News
    6 Jul 2015 | 4:48 am
    Getty By Robin Reshwan A client of mine recently told me about firing a seemingly skilled employee, because he answered an important business demand from their biggest customer with a simple "no." It rarely goes goes well when a customer or employer who pays you lots (or even an average amount) of money hears "no." And while I am a fan of the less-is-more strategy, using those two letters without any other words to cushion their impact can often be a career-limiting move. Here are a few ways to decline requests without jeopardizing your job:

By Gus Lubin and Rachel Sugar They say the early bird catches the worm, and research suggests there might be some truth to the old adage. Waking up with (or before) the sun allows executives like GM's Mary Barra and Pepsi's Indra Nooyi to get a head start on the day, knocking out tasks before the rest of the world has rolled out of bed. Those "extra" hours also give them a chance to do some creative thinking, fit in a workout, and spend time with family.

    Most companies ignore organizational culture. It’s not important to them.

This mindset it totally understandable… and completely wrong! Focusing exclusively on tactical nuts and bolts will keep the company from ever achieving cultural nirvana – and companies that succumb to this small-time thinking will continue to wallow around in a malaise, constantly pushing the program or strategy-of-the-day to…

It didn’t hurt to buy during the recession either. Fast forward several years later and real estate is starting to climb back to the values of the old days.

    In my backyard is an multinational company that needs to be recognized for being incredible, even under unfortunate circumstances. The SCHOTT glass plant in Duryea, PA, went up in flames and the roof caved in with damages estimated at around 50 million dollars. Displaced employees gathered at a local fire hall. A guy named Ed Slusser has been there 41 years (not kidding) – he cried, and he wasn’t the only one. How did SCHOTT respond? Operations Manager Michael Brown publicly thanked firefighters and the community and he talked about the “SCHOTT family” on TV news…

  • Decision vs. Action: A Key Distinction for Success

    I have a question for you: Three frogs are sitting on a log and one decides to jump off. How many frogs are left? If you answered two, you’re wrong, but don’t sweat it. Most people fall for it. Here’s the thing: One frog decided to jump off the log, but that doesn’t mean he necessarily did anything about it. Decision is not the same thing as action. We often confuse it as such, but deciding to become a millionaire is entirely different from actually doing what it takes to make it happen. I’ve been fascinated with the simple idea of “action” for a little while now. It’s funny…

It’s not just because I’ve been writing this blog for over 5 years (any Joe-schmoe off the street can do this, you know!). Rather, it’s because I’ve immersed myself in the field—soaked up knowledge and applied it at a rapid pace. And these days, I really feel it’s paying off with a level of expertise few others possess.

But today, I want to turn that around and talk about the other side of the coin: sharing credit with others. It’s an overlooked, but equally important part of your career success. A true professional knows that, whenever you experience a great achievement at work, you should be vocal about it! Tell your superiors exactly what you did and how you accomplished it.

If you asked him, he’d say he did the same. At some point, the question loomed: If all of this compromise is required, is this the right thing for either of us? It’s a hard, gut-wrenching lesson to learn in romance, but it also applies to your career. Compromise is indeed a requirement for successful relationships and successful careers. We can’t have everything our way 100% of the time. Holding out hope…

    For a while we’ve argued that “follow your passion” has limited value as career advice.  Of course, it’s lovely to feel passionate about what you do, but the outcome is lousy advice for the process. For example, in my own career change I was interested in psychology, but my first experience of learning it- a distance learning module out of Staffordshire University – was probably the most soul destroying thing I’ve ever done.  This is partly because it was part of my “Big Career Change”, so I was expecting instant passion; but my first actual…

What’s more; you have about 15 seconds to make an impression with your resume before the hiring manager dumps it to the bottom of the pile. While no good recruiter will make a decision on a resume alone, your resume is your first impression.

You did not get the job—what next? Almost everyone interviews for jobs they do not get. Finding and achieving the position you want is an often painful process. At the executive level, the air is rarified and the competition is stiff. No one is happy about…
  • Career Acceleration Formula Review

    18 Jun 2015 | 7:57 am
    When I was working as a search firm recruiter, I was always asking myself, “How do I get promoted more quickly?” And when I was working as a search firm recruiter, candidates were always asking me, “How can I land the next level position? How do I get promoted?” It always had me wondering and observing, why is it that some people get ahead fast while others fail to progress their careers for years? My simple motto always was, “Do the job you want, then you get it.” While this mantra worked well for me in my search firm industry, it did not work so easily when I was in…

  • Unemployed? 3 Suggestions for a Powerful Executive LinkedIn Profile

    Daniel Sullivan
    9 Jun 2015 | 7:03 am
    How to handle your employment status on your LinkedIn profile when you are unemployed is a question many executives ask when they are in between positions. One major issue you may run into is that your status may drop when you do not have a “to present” position listed on your profile. For example, if you have an end date for your last position on your LinkedIn profile and you do not have a current position, your status may drop from “All Star” status to “Expert” status. This can make it more challenging for your profile to be ranked higher in search results and for people to find…

I’ve always been able to get up, but the ability to get going and be productive was sometimes a different story. Even if I was wide awake at 5:30 a.m, I would sit there scrolling through Instagram or send a few text messages, and before I knew it, it was 10 a.m. and more sleep probably would’ve been a better option.

Actually, an ideal job has aspects from all three generations: career security, comfortable pay, and impactfulness. Purpose, sometimes defined in a mission statement, should be part of a company culture. Moreover, it should be used as an instrument to attract and retain talent.

    Jenni B. Baker

  • Job Search Success Starts With a Great Resume and Job Search Hope

    Job search success starts with a great resume (like the ones prepared by those on our list of Best Resume Writers 2015). Sure it does. But job search hope? Seriously? Am I really suggesting that hope is a critical element in your successful job search? You bet I am. Not the type of hope that you get by rubbing a magic lamp to get three wishes, but a positive attitude where you can truly see yourself with the new position to which you are applying. What I call Job Search Hope. This job search hope gives you motivation that will drive your job search success through your non-verbal…

    20 Apr 2015 | 8:13 pm
    If you have a job interview coming up, you need to think like a Boy Scout or a high-paid lawyer. Say what? I mean, what could a Boy Scout and high-paid lawyer possibly have in common, and furthermore, what that would relate to my job interview? Well, let’s start with the Boy Scout. How many of you were Boy Scouts or know Boy Scouts? Do you know the Boy Scout motto? It is simply two words. Two words that have stood the test of time and have become synonymous with Boy Scouts. The words are, “Be Prepared.” Every good scout knows this and strives to live this motto. As for the lawyer, well,…
  • Better Job Search Success by Matching Your Resume to the Job Description

    ddefazio
    25 Mar 2015 | 7:49 pm
    Finding job search success is not easy, especially in a down or recovering economy where there is increased competition for each position. In order to stand out, you’ve got to work harder to get an interview for each position for which you apply. This means that to improve success, the days of blindly sending out countless generic resumes are long gone. Generic resumes are, in fact, just that – generic. They may be interesting but certainly won’t make you stand out from a crowd of equally well qualified candidates in a crowded market. With such a competitive landscape of job seekers,…

  • Golden Nuggets From “You Dont Need A Title To Be A Leader”

    admin
    11 Jun 2015 | 4:16 am
    As lecturer, motivational speaker and business person Jim Kohn once said, “You shouldn’t only read good books but you should study them.” I spent several days reading and studying one of the most concise yet educational books about leadership I’ve ever read. This book provided great examples of how anyone, no matter what their position, title or non-title can be leaders. Everyone can be a leader because everyone can make a difference. This book explains how you can make a difference but you must first find your purpose. Written by Mark Sanborn, You Don’t Need A…
  • More To Fraternities Than Hazing, Racism and Partying

    11 May 2015 | 4:10 am
    Whenever you hear anything about fraternities, it usually isn’t positive. Case in point, fraternity members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon were seen on video last month (March 8, 2015) singing racist chants on a bus trip during the organization’s founders day. There was a huge fall out from the incident. Two of the fraternity members who were considered leaders of the racist rant on the video were expelled from the university. The fraternity house was closed and the parking lot gate was padlocked. The Greek letters were even taken down from the fraternity house. Black Greek letter…
  • 4 Small Pieces of Advice That Could Drastically Improve Your Life

    We often times look for some earth shattering, voice from God type advice to change our lives. When in reality, if we would just make a few minor tweaks in some of our daily habits, they could pay big dividends. Making minor changes alone won’t make the big changes we’re looking for. We must be consistent with our changes. We must commit to purposely creating the change we want to see. Change requires discipline and tenacity. Once we realize that, then and only then will we see your life change. What you will find when you decide to change your life, the changes many times require…

    As author, motivational speaker and business owner Jim Rohn once said, You’re not paid for the hour, you’re paid for value you bring to the hour. If you want to increase the money you earn, you have to increase the value that you bring to the market place. There are many ways to increase your pay. You can take on a part-time job, you can work more hours on your existing job or ask for a raise. However, if you want to increase your value in the market place, you have to change your mindset and philosophy about life and money. And that can be a challenge. But it can be done. If you…

    As much as politics, the world economy and cultures have changed, there are some aspects of life that will never change. That’s hard to wrap your mind around in today’s world when the only constant is change. The fact remains is that world still needs leaders. Despite the impact that technology has made in the world, the world needs creative, visionary people who have the ability to think beyond what is right now and see what’s coming down the road.

  • Interview Tips for the Introvert

    Melissa Martinez Frausto
    11 Jun 2015 | 2:07 pm
    It may seem that extroverts have a natural advantage over introverts in job interviews. Extroverts are generally outgoing, talkative, and persuasive – qualities that convey confidence and generate interest in themselves. Introverts tend to be more reserved and reluctant to share a great deal of information during an initial meeting. Unfortunately, the saying is true: you only get one chance at a first impression! If you are an introvert, don’t fret. Here are some tips for harnessing the strengths of your introverted personality to succeed in your next job interview. Gather Information…

    Please read this guest blog from a client of mine. It’s an uplifting story about the power of exploring who you are. I saw a great job description the other day – Director of Operations at a downtown start-up. It had all the things that I want to be doing! I felt confident about meeting many of the requirements listed, even though I had never been a Director in my career. However, the other 20% of the requirements really made me doubt myself. I was worried what would happen if the management team found out that I didn’t know exactly how to do something they wanted. So I put…
  • Do Not Fear the Shark if Your Feathers are Dry

    Amy Wolfgang
    22 May 2015 | 12:59 pm
    I recently bought some “Zenguin” coffee mugs. Each mug has one of four meditative penguins drawn on it. The penguins are trying to find their own sense of calm. Each mug has a Zen proverb written on the inside of the cup so you read it while taking a drink. The one that resonated the most with me said: Do Not Fear The Shark If Your Feathers Are Dry. Oftentimes we are drawn to worry about what might be. For example: What if they don’t call me back for the job? What if I take the new position and I don’t like it? What if I am passed over for that promotion? What if they don’t like my…
  • When to Hire a Professional Resume Writer

    Melissa Martinez Frausto
    7 May 2015 | 3:52 pm
    Your resume is an important marketing tool and often your first introduction to an employer. The employer’s evaluation of your skills as presented on your resume is the key to getting an interview. You may be the ideal candidate for a job, but if you can’t convey that via the words on your resume, then you are sunk. There are tons of resources available to help you create or update your own resume. Plus, developing your resume writing skills can help quite a bit if you change jobs regularly. However, there are situations when it may be better to hire a professional resume writer. Lack of…

  • 4 Reasons Why Women Should Consider The Skilled Trades

    Biron
    20 Jun 2015 | 7:54 am
    There is often a stereotypical image associated with trades’ workers that involves a male in a hardhat. This stereotype prevails in part because skilled female tradespeople make up only about 5% of employed tradespeople, according to Talent Egg. Despite this, there are many reasons why women with an interest in the skilled trades and hands-on work should still pursue a career in this industry. Here are the top 4 reasons why women should consider a career in the skilled trades: 1. Many traditionally male professions are increasing in popularity with female workers. Since the mid…

How soon should I start applying for jobs in Texas? My friend says I should start applying now in January but I’m afraid most employers won’t be able to predict their needs for June right now.

    Other than failure to complete basic interview preparation (which I consider to be common sense) such as checking out the company’s website before going in for an interview, there’s one major job interview mistake that I see most often as a Recruiter. Unlike most mistakes, this doesn’t become less and less common with the higher level job seekers that I work with. In fact, sometimes I see it occur more at the higher levels. If you have a few years of experience or more, it’s especially important to be careful of this job interview blunder. The common job interview…

    Very few people talk about corporate sales as a career option in highschool or college. Everyone learns about the various career paths in Finance, Accounting, Science, Engineering, etc because those topics can be studied specifically. Because schools cannot (or do not) teach sales techniques, you’re not usually introduced to this option. It’s a pretty well-kept secret but the reality is that sales people make a ton of money with just a Bachelor’s degree (or sometimes without one!).

  • What’s the Payoff for Your Social Media Investment?

    1 Jul 2015 | 4:07 pm
    Use social media skillfully and willfully! Social media is fun, but is it worth your time? All that sharing and liking and tweeting is a great way meet and keep in touch with friends. While doing that, you’ve seen the marketers there with you… suggesting products and inviting you to their online stores. They of course invest dollars to reach you this way. But as a job-seeker or for professional development, you can market a most important product… your career… without reaching for your wallet. The investment is time. Returns depend on how strategically you use that…
  • Make Opportunity Knock

    New jobs, high-profile projects, raises, and promotions happen every day. Social media networking can make those everyday opportunities knock first at your door. Sometimes opportunities happen in front of us.  More often, we hear of hires, promotions, awards, and bonuses when they are announced. They have gone to someone else. We don’t even know if we were “in the running”. To the employed, lack of influence can be frustrating. A coworker gets a promotion; we get a piece of cake at the celebration. A recent graduate wins our perfect opportunity; we enjoy a bagel on the new hire’s…

    Career Management is the new Job Security In the 20th century, job security looked like this… A corner office looked like job security, until your company merged with another with corner offices in taller buildings, and the game of musical chairs began. A great backlog of work looked like job security. Then management found a faster, cheaper way to meet the business requirement. A degree from a prestigious university looked like job security, as long as the skills behind that degree were needed. But then technologies changed, and the business shifted focus to different things, done…
  • Is a Flex Job in Your Future?

    31 Mar 2015 | 12:02 pm
    A little history… In the 1960’s, most desk jobs were in open offices. Desks were arranged in long rows, with just enough space for a swivel chair to slide back, and for a wastebasket. Management worked behind the closed doors at either side of the room. Ten years later, desks, workers and their telephones were cocooned into cubicles. After another 10 or 15 years, computer workstations were installed on those desks. Phone lines became network connections. 9-to-5’s became 8-to-5’s. Data replaced paper. As many gray walls came down and long tables replaced individual…

Working with a cute and stubborn child can be draining on the soul.  What should take you 2 minutes to film and go down the road, could take hours or even days to catch her in the right mood to say that line or do what you need her to.  I ran across this multiple times during the…

    As I mentioned in a previous post (video found here), my wife attended an awesome conference for five days leaving me alone with Emerson.  I guess that means she is confident with my #DadAwesome skills!  On day one, I filmed myself putting together a toy with,…… some difficulties!  HA! Things got much more competitive on day two! Don’t miss these funny parts! The Setup: 0:24 Laugh at Mark: 0:57 Baby Insults: 1:45 Crazy Ending: 2:06 I always try to have some fun with Emerson and the result is usually me looking silly and her laughing!  I’m ok with that!  This…

    My wife went to a conference a few month’s ago to help grow her creative business.  She started to hit her stride after having our daughter, and we both thought it was a great opportunity to travel to CA and meet other creatives and learn a few new skills.  (Website here: Ashlee Creates) While we both agreed this was a great idea, it meant one scary thing….. I was going to be left alone with Emerson for 5 straight days! I think of myself as #DadAwesome, but that didn’t mean I wasn’t nervous!  The longest I had spent with her alone was 6 hours on a Saturday.

Reviewing the average resume can get treated like checking out the latest tweet.

What I can say for myself is that I do know a significant amount of people who are known by millions and actually are 30 Under 30s.

    I love my husband. I really do. That doesn’t mean he can’t be a real jerk sometimes. He wasn’t trying to be a jerk. And in fact, if you ask him, he wasn’t being a jerk.

      When your work life balance has gotten a little out of whack, it’s because you’re working too much at the wrong kind of job. No one ever complains that they’ve had too much vacation, or that they’re having too much fun at work. Not that those things don’t ever happen – it’s just that no one complains. And you certainly don’t need work life balance tips to help you feel better if that’s the issue.

    If you’re thinking of making a midlife career change you already know that there are many variables to consider. The main reason you’re making the move is probably that your work doesn’t align with who you are. Your talents, skills, values – the essence of you goes untapped and leaves you feeling like a robot at work. Even if it’s work you used to enjoy, at this point you’ve outgrown it.
