    A year and a half ago, a massive Gallup poll revealed what many probably already knew: most people don’t enjoy their jobs. Why, though? What is it about our jobs that we don’t like? And what can we do about it? James Altucher, a writer, investor and entrepreneur, has explored this question on his blog. Being dissatisfied with your career is a feeling he knows well: years ago, he literally walked out of a job he hated and never looked back. Why do we hate our jobs? Altucher lists 15 reasons we hate our jobs. Here are three that are particularly bold, as well as our suggestions for…

    When you walk into what you think is a normal meeting with your boss and are surprised with a pink slip, it’s devastating. Even if you absolutely, positively hated your job, when your boss yanks it out from under your feet, it hurts and you can’t think straight. You should, however, ask a series of questions even if your brain can’t handle that task right now. But, you can always call or arrange a meeting later to ask questions. Your employer will generally provide a stack of paperwork that you can go through on your own, so you may not need to ask some of these questions.

    Job interviews have undergone a major transformation since the days of inherited careers and apprenticeships turned full-time jobs. As the work world continues to grow and change with the latest technologies and innovations, so must the job interview. Long gone are the days of relying on references and questions to evaluate job candidates. Today’s interview process has evolved to include various technologies and methods for testing candidates’ knowledge and skills. To help us embrace the future, we must first look to the past.

  • How to recover from a bad decision

    Penelope Trunk
    26 May 2015 | 5:55 am
    Many of you have asked what happened with Kate. In case you don’t remember, Kate was a homeless teen I found myself coaching in Florida. When I realized she was homeless I bought her a plane ticket to come to my house. We made our guest room into her room. I bought her all new clothes, and I told my sons to stop asking how long Kate is staying for. I told them, “This is her home. It’s the only home she has. She leaves when she wants and comes home when she needs to. Just like you guys will do when you’re older.” I remember when she arrived, I felt I was doing…
  • Shortcuts to reinventing yourself

    Penelope Trunk
    7 May 2015 | 12:43 pm
    Reinvention is part of being human. The nature of our lives is that we learn more and collect new ideas and that makes us want to do new and different things with our lives. But we often never actually make that transition. The problem is that we are hard-wired to think about the present. Even people who are great at planning get tangled up in daily details because, after all, this is how humans stayed alive as they evolved: never taking their eye completely away from their immediate needs. So what’s really useful is a list of small cheats to get around your proclivity to obsess about…
  • Do we still have to lean in if Dave Goldberg is dead?

    Penelope Trunk
    4 May 2015 | 2:44 pm
    After three days of silence on the cause of death for Dave Goldberg, the New York Times has changed their story in the span of seven hours, some mysterious source said collapsed while exercising. Then a leak to the Associated Press said head trauma. If we were in an Agatha Christie mystery, I’d say heart attack. But we are in the real world, and I don’t believe any of it. My uncle committed suicide. His son hid in the closet while my uncle shot himself in the head. His son saw everything. I didn’t know this until 20 years later. Everyone in my family thought the uncle had…
  • Dave Goldberg cause of death? I think it’s suicide

    Penelope Trunk
    3 May 2015 | 9:29 pm
    First of all, let me say that I feel really bad for everyone who is losing Dave Goldberg in their life. I feel bad that he will not get to see his two kids grow up. His death is very sad. I have not had a spouse die or a parent die and I’m sure the experience is more awful than I could even imagine. Still. I can’t help but wonder how he died. It is completely standard in journalism to report the cause of death when the announcement is made. After the initial, cursory announcement of death, major publications frequently run an obituary when a famous person dies, yet the Wall…

    When Erin Meyer visited Tokyo with a Japanese colleague shortly after her book, “The Culture Map” was published, she agreed to speak to about 20 Japanese managers. After her presentation, she asked if there were any questions or comments. “No hands went up, so I went to sit down,” she recalls. But then her Japanese colleague whispered to her that he believed there were some comments. Would it be OK if he tried to solicit some feedback?Meyer agreed. The colleague made the attempt, but the group remained silent. Then, he made eye contact with someone and asked, “Do you have…

    21 May 2015 | 7:03 am
    Collaboration is an important buzzword around the workplace today, but David Strom’s observation several years ago that there is a belief that “sharing is still for sissies” can still ring true today. Strom noted that until that attitude changes, “the headphones will stay firmly stuck in our ears, blocking out the rest of the world around us,” he wrote.While companies often tout their collaborative culture and employees cite their “collaborative” style during annual performance reviews, the difficult truth is that not only has collaboration failed to thrive…

  • Why Some Leaders are Terrible Communicators

    15 May 2015 | 7:35 am
    If you’re a leader and your team complains about being overwhelmed,  you’re not alone. We often blame technology – whether it’s the telephone 50 years ago or social media today – for much of our ills at work.  But the real problem may not be your team tweeting too much but rather your poor communication skills as a leader.Think about it: How many times have you sent an email to a team member who is sitting in the same room? How many times have you avoided picking up the phone in favor of sending a text or an email? How many times have you sent emails that require more than…

  • The 3 Essential Networking Questions You’re Forgetting to Ask

    Jason Treu
    28 May 2015 | 3:00 am
    Here’s what typically happens when you meet someone new at a networking event: You start with small talk and then you ask the person what they do. Then, if you want to interact with them more, you exchange business cards. End scene. If you follow this script, you’ve just missed out out on a great opportunity to stand out, build greater rapport and a deeper connection, and to mutually benefit each other in a potentially significant way. Why aren’t we asking the right networking questions? We often forget good questions when we’re networking. Here’s why: (Click here to tweet this…

The truth is that there are no easy answers. Whether you’re attracted to a big, established company or a scrappy startup, there are positives and negatives linked to both options.

    Can you say “good morning” and really mean it? A few years ago, the morning I spent at the Taj Mahal, with my wife, was completely engaging. The picture I took above was just one of many that reflected my wakeful and blissful awe inspiring morning. It was an incredible way to start the day and the beauty was even better than described or anticipated. Unfortunately, this was just one of 365 mornings that year – I can’t start each day with a trip to the Taj Mahal (although I wouldn’t mind).

    Beginnings make a huge difference  Meetings offer a perfect example. I was working with a VP who started off her 3-day, first quarter meeting with a 20 minute introduction. In that 20 minutes she crisply and energetically laid out: The purpose and expected outcome of the three days Three highlights and three lowlights from the previous year Why people were seated, by name card, at their six-person tables.

    "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…

It's usually to start making statements in defense of our position, which then leads to "I'm going to win!" Not a good posture.     Ask Questions When you keep announcing the righteousness of your position, the problem defines you. When you respond with a question, both of you begin defining the problem and looking for solutions. Which do you want? Here are four model questions that will help you stay above the fray: "If this…

Leading starts with clarity. The time that a leader spends getting clear about what needs to be done will pay off in quickly-focused effort as a result of increased understanding.  When things aren't clear, the day doesn't  go well.

While those of us who work globally may have experienced--and thought about-- the inherent reality of these perceptive differences, Canadian and Japanese researchers  have confirmed some very specific distinctions.

The taller of the two men was Danny Shader, a serial entrepreneur who had spent time at Netscape, Motorola, and Amazon. Intense, dark-haired, and capable of talking about business forever, Shader was in his late thirties by the time he launched his first company, and he liked to call himself the "old man of the Internet."

    Had the pleasure of doing a webinar over at Fistful of Talent this week with my friend, Tim Sackett.  The topic was "The New HR Math", which was a conversation about how the expectations of HR metrics are changing these days. My theory is that if you've got the same old metrics - time to fill, turnover, cost per hire and engagement scores to name a few - eventually someone's going to be hired in above you at the CEO or CHRO level and have a bigger expectation of what should be measured. Your goal is to think differently about the metrics you use before that person gets…

    Leaders usually arrive in the seat because they're good at something.  More often than not, the promotional path to any leadership position - whether managing a team or more later in your career - is rooted in subject matter expertise. You were the best at what you do, so you got promoted.  But how good of a manager or leader of people you are usually depends on whether those you lead perceive you as confident or cocky. Since you were the best and you're now leading people, it's easy to be cocky. Tell them what to do because you know better than them. The moment of truth for…

    When two kindergarten kids get into a spat, teachers temporarily separate the children and know that if you give them a few minutes they’ll probably get over it. When two junior high school girls get into a spat, the whole world can come to an end and they will still hate each other and set out to destroy each other. When two adults don’t get along in the same office, we hope that they are more like kindergarten children than 7th graders, but unfortunately, sometimes development was stuck at 13 and you’re in for a bumpy ride.

  • Leadership “Moment of Truth” for FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi

    Katie Russell
    19 May 2015 | 7:04 pm
    A few moments of truth often capture the essence of a leader’s character and define his legacy. One such moment for Carles Puyol, former center back and club captain of FC Barcelona, occurred in 2011 when he led the team to the Champions League title. As club captain, Puyol was expected to celebrate by raising the cup on behalf of the team. Instead, he passed both his captain armband and the trophy to defender Éric Abidal, who, just weeks earlier, had undergone a liver transplant as part of treatment for liver cancer. It was a moment Barça fans will forever treasure. Another moment of…

    What sports fan in the 1980s and 1990s wasn’t inspired by Michael Jordan, arguably the greatest basketball player ever? His last-second jump shots, airborne dunks, and tenacious defensive coverage made him a crowd-pleasing favorite. Now Jordan has been recognized as the first professional athlete to become a billionaire. What can we learn from his success? When Michael Jordan began playing in the NBA, he epitomized excellence as an individual contributor. His superhuman feats during his first five seasons with the Chicago Bulls, however, were not enough to make them champions. Not until…

    #84 Be on the Lookout for the Three Social Cultures Intentional connectors understand that there are three types of social cultures: cultures of control, cultures of indifference and connection cultures.  In cultures of control, people with power, control, influence and status rule over others and as a result the others feel left out. In cultures of indifference, people are so busy chasing money, power and status that they fail to invest the time necessary to develop healthy, supportive relationships. In these cultures many people struggle with loneliness. Unlike cultures of control and…

    There are a lot of ways that you can build your brand online and it certainly starts with your own website, blog and social media profiles.

  • Moving from no communication to harmonious relationship

    You might have just landed a new and exciting client. Putting your best foot forward is essential for building a long lasting relationship. But sometimes, although your best was delivered, the communication seems to die. It completely ruins your day and sometimes even an entire week. It’s not worthwhile to allow this to happen because it poorly affects all else you do in that time period. An improved approach is to review everything that took transpired prior to the silence in place. As long as you are certain you are performing at your best levels, you have nothing to regret.

    David Christiansen
    14 May 2015 | 7:50 pm
    Testing software saved my (professional) life. A long time ago I was totally stuck professionally. I was a project manager in the IT department of a giant insurance company that had absolutely no clue about freaking anything. I was miserable beyond belief. I wanted out. Out of project management, but most of all, out of corporate IT. So I started testing software on the side for a friend’s company. I tested in the morning. I tested in the evening. I even tested on my lunch hour. Developer’s would deliver a story, I’d pull the code down locally, break it, and reject their…
  • Tips for making your integrated system a beautiful, majestic monolith

    David Christiansen
    26 Apr 2015 | 7:22 am
    The longer I do this, the more I agree with @dhh If you haven’t seen it yet, you should watch @dhh’s talk from RailsConf2015. In it, @dhh introduces the notion that “monolithic” applications aren’t really bad in and of themselves and rebrands them as integrated systems. As I listened to @dhh talk I realized that I have grown to feel much the same way. I’m proud of my monolith I started building TroopTrack in 2008. I think it began life as a Rails 1.8 application, but I’m not entirely sure. We were not using git back then and the sad truth is I no…

    Sorry, I couldn’t help it. This style of headline is all over the place. It’s tacky, so this is me mocking it a little bit. Yesterday I blogged about a distinction regarding DRY and posited an example of view code that is better with repetitive code than DRY code. I won’t rehash that, so here’s a link. In the end of the post I mention that I want to be able to create views that are named like this: - menu.html.haml (default) - menu.bsa_troop.html.haml (alternate view for Boy Scout of America Troops) - menu.sa_group.html.haml (alternate view for Scouts Australia Groups)…

    I’m starting to realize there is a difference between code that is functionally repetitive and code that is coincidentally repetitive. Here’s an example of some functionally repetitive code: class Admin::CoursesController < Admin::AdminController def index @courses = Course.all end def show @course = Course.find(params[:id]) end def engagement @course = Course.find(params[:id]) end def new @course = Course.new end ... end Functionally repetitive code is repetitive because of the functional nature of the activity being coded – for instance, finding a resource on a controller…

    ATLANTA, GA - As most of my readers know, I look at 50 to 60 ecommerce resumes every day. It's incredible. Many of the best candidates have the worst resumes, and many of the worst candidates have the best resumes. Perhaps that's because the best candidates are hard at work creating value for their companies, while the lesser candidates are busy worrying about their next gig. I'm not picking on the lesser candidates when I say this, but it does stand to reason that a lesser candidate will be less focused on creating value in their current situation. Don't you agree?

    The United States has an enormous GDP. Sometimes it is easy to forget just how big spending in the USA has become. To highlight the wealth found in the United States, American Enterprise Institute’s Mark Perry created a map that shows which states have the same GDP as entire countries. America’s $16.7 trillion economy is huge and while it may no longer be the largest in the world, the breakdown by state is pretty staggering. The largest economy in the United States is Californnia, which brings in $2.05 trillion. In comparison, all of Brazil features a GDP of just $2.25 trillion.

The new building is being constructed in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood near the upcoming arena for the Golden State Warriors basketball team.

    McDonald’s is attempting to overhaul its business and the big plan is juicier burgers with crispy, hotter buns. The company revealed on Wednesday that it is changing how it cooks beef patties. The company hopes to create a juicer product while toasting buns for an extra five seconds to create a product that is crispier and features temperatures that are 15 degrees warmer.   McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook announced the changes at a conference in New York on Wednesday. “These little things add up to big differences for our customers,” Easterbrook said, according…

    You know about employment policies: You can have them in place, but that doesn’t mean all your employees will follow them—even employees in the human resources department! So, you have a policy that your company will give out only limited information on former employees, such as their title and dates of service.  However, this policy is difficult, at best, to monitor, so some negative commentary may leak out—a violation of your policy and maybe the law as well. Michigan-based Allison & Taylor Reference Checking has recently documented these actual examples of reference responses…

If your managers are not already fielding requests from employees for raises and promotions, they soon may be, according to a recent Accountemps survey. An improving economy and higher demand for skilled workers mean professionals are more confident in their job prospects—and they’re on the hunt for bigger paychecks and loftier titles.

    We all want to feel fulfilled in our work. A lucky few find fulfillment naturally and easily in their careers. For the rest of us, we have to get creative to find that elusive sense of fulfillment. Maybe the reason we haven’t found it yet is that we’ve been looking in the wrong place. Once upon a time, a rabbi came across a drunkard who was down on his hands and knees by the base of a lamppost. He was scrabbling around on the sidewalk as if looking for something. The rabbi said, “My son, are you looking for something? Can I help you?” “I’m looking for my…

    Try this morning tea cocktail instead of coffee. It’s rocket fuel for the brain. I started experimenting with fat-plus-stimulant beverages in 1998 and 1999 while on the Cyclical Ketogenic Diet (CKD). For the above tea blend, I now add turmeric and ginger to the aged pu-erh, usually Rishi brand. The above video was shot while filming the parkour episode of The Tim Ferriss Experiment TV show. We filmed 13 episodes back-to-back and I needed a morning pick-me-up that could be prepared quickly but sustain me for hours. The tea prep might seem reminiscent of Bulletproof Coffee, and it is.

    8 May 2015 | 4:32 am
    “Love is stronger than death.” Solomon I’ve lived long enough to have lost some things. The list includes people, careers, health, and more. Probably true for you as well. 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…
  • I Don’t Know

    Eric
    21 Apr 2015 | 3:59 am
    It’s clear we like to know where we’re going. The idea of mystery, question marks and pure unknowns disturbs us. The statement of “I don’t know” can be liberating. Many won’t go there. We’ve been duped into believing that we have control, can master anything we set our minds to, or there is a solution for every problem. Terry Walling once wrote that the best leaders know how to live with the questions. As tough as that is to swallow and live, I agree, from my own experience. There’s something about moving forward without an answer. There’s…

    “The hardest thing about really seeing and really hearing is when you have to do something about what you have seen and heard.” – Frederick Buechner   There are times, crucial times, in our lives when we have to stand strong in acceptance and allow our will to take over. The trick is found in how prepared we are. As you know, preparation is found in the sun and in the rain. Do you know anyone who lives their life not to see the rain? Their endless pursuit is to avoid difficulties. I, like you, wouldn’t sign up for rain. However, it is inevitable to experience what…

    Tom Ventura
    29 May 2015 | 6:05 am
    I was in a meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous tonight; a woman spoke up. Her name will remain anonymous, but she shared something very deep. Sometimes at meetings related to recovery you hear someone really going through the thick of their addiction – someone trying their best to quit. This woman shared about how she wanted to kill herself, how her life was over, how she is not meant for this life. She shared that someone was online bullying her via Facebook. The room became silent as the mood generally shifts when someone shares something as heart wrenching as that. You could hear the…
  • Five Ways to Find Perfection in Your Imperfections

    Cylon George
    28 May 2015 | 6:38 am
    “This is our perfection: to find out our imperfections” – St. Augustine (as paraphrased by Sr. Joan Chittister) I was born a perfectionist. One of my earliest memories of my perfectionism was the habit of making my bed every morning as a kid. To be a kid who makes his bed is extraordinary in itself. But I took things to the next level. I would spend an inordinate amount of time fussing over every wrinkle and crease. It had to be perfect. Ensuring my bed was perfectly made was a sign of something deeper. I started my day with perfection because I wanted my whole day, and life, to…

    “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” – Gandhi I was about to board a plane, and I was terrified. Not because I was afraid of flying — because I was afraid of what awaited me at my destination. “I could turn around now,” I said to myself. “Nobody would blame me. I could just go back to my job at the ice cream shop and have a nice quiet summer.” The year was 2005. The plane’s destination? Tanzania. I’d never traveled somewhere so different before, and I had no idea what to expect when I arrived. But I’ve never been one to…

    “To find real peace you have to let the armour fall.” – Jim Carrey This is a different kind of story; it’s about my decision to workout less. Before I get to why, I’ll go back to how I started in the first place. I had a 3kg dumbbell hidden under my bed, and I had a dream that I’d dare not share with a soul. I was going to completely transform myself into someone, and something, that was a cross between Arnold Schwarzenegger and a Dragon Ball Z character. I was 16 at the time, and the designated ‘baby-faced, skinny little kid.’ No one gave me…

    “You’re always with yourself, so you might as well enjoy the company.” – Diane Von Furstenberg You’d think life would be easy at age 22, but things couldn’t be more confusing. A lot happened in one year. I graduated from college, got engaged, and got a job in the field I wanted. I even moved to a new and beautiful city but my excitement only lasted a few months. You see, an uncomfortable feeling settled in and I started feeling stuck and unhappy.  But it just didn’t make sense because I had everything I could ever want. I sat with this feeling for a few more weeks and then I…

  • Should We Ban Handshakes?

    Alexandra Levit
    28 May 2015 | 5:00 am
    The first piece of business advice I was given that stuck was to greet a new person with a firm, enthusiastic handshake. Since that day 16 years ago when my boss said my shake had to be “more confident,” I've been telling countless college graduates to think about their handshaking approach as a critical part of making a solid first impression. After all, you don’t want to be a dead fish (too limp) or a bulldozer (too aggressive). And it takes practice to get it right. Now, though, there’s a worldwide movement to banish the handshake from our business culture. Citing concerns…
  • "Project Manager" Means Different Things to Different People

    Alexandra Levit
    25 May 2015 | 5:00 am
    I came across a post in my LinkedIn feed from a PM from Bahrain, Eman Deabil, who sparked a healthy debate about whether “Project Manager” is a real title and “Project Management” is a real profession. The crux of Eman’s argument is that project management is actually a set of interrelated skills that need to be developed by the person who is in charge of managing a project. These skills differ depending on the project, and especially depending on the industry in which the project will take place. For example, managing a project in IT requires a separate set…

    Those who have reading my posts for a while know that I have a special interest in the intersection of economics and business, as well as the intersection of neuroscience and business. Recently, I corresponded with Eyal Winter, a professor of economics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalam. In his excellent book, Feeling Smart: Why Emotions Are More Rational than We Think, Eyal asks this question: “If our emotions are so destructive and unreliable, why has evolution left us with them? The answer is that, even though they may not behave in a purely logical manner, our emotions…

    I’ll admit it. I’m not exactly an early adopter of new technology. I may like thinking about future devices, but when it comes to learning how to use them and incorporating them into my daily routine, I’m a technical slacker. And yes, I’m a person who has resisted moving on from Microsoft Excel. I’ve used spreadsheets for the last 20 years and for the most part, they’ve met my needs. However, as I work more and more in the cloud, I realize that spreadsheets are so 2005 – and they are costing us in terms of productivity and accuracy. Here are some of the problems.

I always look forward to speaking to the group and once again did not let Mykl Roventine finish asking the question if I would be interested before I said yes. These are my people. And this is the group that took me in many years ago when the Recruiter and HR community was still anti Social Media. I knew it was going to matter and the SMB folks were speaking my language. So rather than be “recruiter guy” I was a “student” and sat in the back and took notes.

    It’s difficult to find a job if you don’t know what you want to do. Sounds obvious? Have you really focused on your skills and accomplishments and whether they help qualify you for the jobs you seek? One pet peeve of recruiters and hiring managers is that job seekers often apply for positions ill-suited to their requirements. Don’t be one of those job seekers. Before applying, take some time to figure out what you want to do – and what you’re good at – and it will be easier to get hiring managers to notice you.

What if the same thing happens at work and you get seated in the equivalent of “kids’ table.” In that case, you wind up with a lot worse than cold soup and an empty drinking glass: you could be passed over for opportunities that could improve your career. There are a lot of reasons why people seem to be “out of sight, out of mind” at work. While a poor cubicle or…

    Are you afraid of nightmare interviews? These come in all shapes and sizes. Maybe your interviewer grills you for hours and hours or expects you to sit through five or six rounds of interviews with team after team. Or maybe your interviewer doesn’t crack a smile or provide any nonverbal feedback the entire time. Some job seekers have gone to interviews only to be kept waiting for hours to meet the potential employer. A common (and perhaps not unfounded) fear among job seekers is the seemingly bizarre interview question that comes out of nowhere like an apparition. For example, what if…

    In the world of business there are many components that make up a successful venture.  All must work as a team with the one vision in mind, which is the health and prosperity of the company.  But business is also a daily battle. The procurement/purchasing department is obliviously involved in getting the necessary goods in house that are needed to manufacture a product.  But they are bound with the task of not getting more than is needed or have available capital tied up in inventory.  That makes sense.  But what if they are tightening their belt a little too much and…

    Last week I stopped into the local IHOP Restaurant with my wife to get a quick lunch.  Nothing fancy just a burger or two.  The food was fine, service quick and waiter mostly attentive.  But then a funny thing happened…We were seated towards the rear of the restaurant and off to the side nearest the kitchen.  Not necessary an optimum seat for a window view but adequate enough to see my server standing behind the etched glass partition that separated two sections of the restaurant.I wondered why she was just standing there when she obviously has a full section of tables…

One of the things I remember learning from Sterling was what a “step job” is.  Many people who met Sterling were looking for their dream job.  The stat at the time was that for every $10,000 you needed to make, you should plan on one month of looking.  So, if you wanted to make $60,000 a year, your job…

She would micro-manage the way people bagged her groceries. Then we trekked back home down Belmont Avenue, and I carried what didn’t fit in the cart.

Because it influences how colleagues relate, or fail to relate, to each other, culture affects the effectiveness of teams and business units, ultimately influencing the bottom line.

    21 May 2015 | 4:00 am
    Guest post by Rosalinda Randall:“You can’t lead anyone else any further than you have gone yourself.” –UnknownCan’t get your staff to do what you tell them to do? Do you live by the old adage, “Do as I say, not as I do?”  Leading a team or staff of one is not an easy task. Providing guidelines, policies, and sometimes frequent reminders is helpful. But the most powerful tool of all is setting an example.  Sure, commands, instilling fear of being fired, and “because I said so” might get the job done for a while or in the immediate—but, in the long-term, you’ll…

    Many people writing a resume for their first job make these mistakes: They try too hard to be clever and stand out by using fancy fonts, colors, clip art or even video resumes.

  • 11 Books Every Leader--and Wannabe--Should Read

    Dan Erwin
    27 May 2015 | 8:36 am
    Inevitably, when conversing with a friend or former client whom I haven’t seen for some time, I get asked what I’m reading. So this is a second list of books that have taught me much about people, careers and organizations. Three don’t fit those categories, but they are exceptional: one on America’s role in the world, one on valuing popular music and an absolutely delightful and hilarious book on mathematics. Even with this list I’ve left out some of my favorites—and probably some of yours too. After all, more than a million books are published every year and... about 11,000…
  • "What Am I Missing?"

    Dan Erwin
    20 May 2015 | 8:22 am
    The key question about big data, economists reveal, is not “What did I measure?” but “What did I miss?”  However, the question has a lot more value than merely its role in big data. Indeed, when well-placed in a problem-solving conversation, there are few questions more important. Why is “what am I missing?” so rarely used? It’s not because people are ignorant of its words and syntax, because it’s off the radar screen, or even because some of its values are misunderstood and out-of-awareness. It’s about the question’s underlying psychology... of personal…

    Collective intelligence has been around for a long time--and in many different forms. For example, people from all over the world collectively created Wikipedia and Linux, high quality intellectual products. Now the knowledge from studies in collective intelligence are being applied to business teams. So what makes for the best, the most trusted team intelligence? Is it a lot of smart people, or perhaps more creative folk? It’s a highly significant question, because it speaks to gaining the most business impact from the formation of teams.

  • How to Take Advantage of Personal Vulnerability

    Dan Erwin
    4 May 2015 | 5:28 am
    You blush. Confused and discombobulated. Embarrassed. You’re found out. You know the rule in business: don’t let anyone know what you don’t know. Keep up a good front. Don’t trap yourself and have to admit ignorance. Never, never open up and admit to personal vulnerability on any business subject.  For nearly all of us, vulnerability is a very helpless feeling. Our guard is down and we believe we’re open to emotional attack and censure. Why is that? Surprisingly, the answer is... that we’ve learned that’s the way we should respond when our ignorance and missteps are found…
  • Do Employees Want their Employer to Tell Them How to Vote?

    Dan Erwin
    27 Apr 2015 | 2:45 am
    With all that's going on about the 2016 presidential candidates, I thought it was time to visit an important issue about company support of candidates. Back in 2012, the HBR (Harvard Business Review) blog had a lead posting by Gregory Casey, arguing that employees want their bosses to talk politics—ostensibly so they can make “better decisions.” So what do you think about that? My first response was total skepticism, leading to questions about the writer’s person and actual agenda. This is how he was identified on HBR: President & CEO of the Business Industry…

    Job seekers are so curious. They love to complain about recruiters, but they never return our calls. In the war for talent, talent advisors are relentlessly pursuing candidates. When does it makes sense to chase someone? When do you let it go? Here are some thoughts from our resident talent advisors. TIM SACKETT SAYS STALKING IS OKAY — UNTIL IT ISN’T Most recruiters fail by believing that two to three messages without a reply — email, text and phone calls –means no.

    The improving economy and continued spotlight on minimum wage have caused many employers to increase the pay of their seasonal positions this summer, with some well beyond the federal minimum wage of $7.25. According to CareerBuilder’s annual summer forecast, 53 percent of employers offering summer jobs have roles that pay $15 or more per hour on average.

    Several years ago, I was sitting at my desk when my secretary ran into my office. She told me the career services dean of a major American law school was on the telephone, demanding to speak with me, and that she was extremely angry. I took the call and the dean yelled at me for several minutes. She was angry about a letter I’d sent telling her I wanted to help her students with a service called Legal Authority, which assists law students and attorneys in getting jobs by doing mass mailings of their résumés to employers in given cities matching their interests.

  • Never Measure Yourself against Perfection

    Harrison Barnes
    28 May 2015 | 12:00 am
    When I was in high school, one of the happiest kids I knew was an excellent athlete whom I’ll call Bill. He was very intelligent and always had the best looking girlfriends. He eventually ended up marrying his high school sweetheart. Bill was from a relatively small town in Michigan, and he ended up going to our private boarding school, where he was surrounded by a lot of very high achievers. I think the type of people he met there really must have changed his perspective. Some of the kids he played baseball with in high school went on to play baseball in college. Some of these kids went on…
  • The Importance of Giving Access to Information–and Doing Good

    Harrison Barnes
    27 May 2015 | 12:00 am
    I am frequently reminded we are on this earth for a relatively short time.  While we are here, it is in our best interest to create an abundance of outgoing goodness and love, and to simultaneously limit the amount of hate, anger, and sorrow that comes into our lives.  Indeed this can be much of the struggle of human existence. At times it seems the more good we attempt to put out into the world, and the more people we try to reach, the more the world challenges us by creating new obstacles.  These obstacles actually serve to make us stronger and ultimately assist us in reaching our goals.

    Lately I have been hearing more and more people say that there are no jobs. I hear this so much it is beginning to make me a bit angry. There may not be the same number of jobs that there were two years ago; however, there are still jobs. There are actually tons of jobs, all over the place. But here is a little reality check: If you want to make $70,000 a year assembling steering assemblies in an auto plant, there are not as many of these jobs anymore. If you want to work for a newspaper that is losing money, there are not as many of these jobs anymore either. If you want to get overtime…

    When I was younger, I was reasonably good at tennis and would have been capable of being an exceptional player if I had developed the correct habits. By the age of 15 I had developed a serve so strong that even professional tennis players had difficulty returning it with any consistency. The problem with this serve was that I only got it in around 30% of the time (and I had a horrible second serve).  I also had an extremely good forehand that was devastating to my opponents.  In a similar manner, the forehand–when I hit it my hardest–did not go in nearly as much as it should…

    When it comes to the workforce, there are a number of different job types available, including full-time, part-time, temporary, and independent contractor work.

    Could you be making the wrong assumptions? These five posts support the idea that everything we believe may not be correct. Please, allow me to challenge your assumptions about job search, careers, social networking and new graduate job search! Not only did these posts catch my attention, they were popular with my network this week as well! Career Wisdom We’ve got it all wrong! You won’t “be” just one thing. You should be multiple things at the same time. It is the smart way to run your career. The odds of finding just one thing that will make you happy and fill your…

  • Don’t let your resume be all about process

    michaelpollock
    17 May 2015 | 8:01 am
    I see a lot of resumes. They are fascinating in their sameness. There is a quite reasonable love for active verbs. I like active verbs. But if you don’t pay close attention you may find that your resume becomes all about process. Bullets indicate that the writer leads, reports, plans, prepares, delivers, identifies, facilitates, provides direction, collaborates, works with, creates, reviews, handles, and so on. These accounts of active processes have often come to eclipse the achievements that make the applicant unique and exciting. Most people who are being considered for a position are…
  • Moving up? Overwhelmed by email?

    15 May 2015 | 1:57 pm
    Email inundation is a particular issue for people who have made a leap forward in their careers and whose new roles expose them to vast new volumes of communications. The wonderful new “flat” org structures lead to everyone wanting to know everything that is going on. This does have some merit, as every little piece of design, strategy, tactics, execution is so interwoven with so many other pieces and there is no time for reflection or regrouping. Much is happening on the fly in this automated, need-it-now world we have foisted on ourselves. So as you rise up the food chain, you are…
  • Take a zero day – and tomorrow you will surge ahead

    michaelpollock
    13 May 2015 | 11:49 pm
    The expression “zero day” I learned from my son when he walked the Appalachian Trail from end to end one summer. Some days he made 20+ miles, some better, some not so much. Through snow and heat and rain. But every now and again he rested for a day in his hammock-tent or in some bunkhouse in an obscure corner of rural America, These days on which he advanced no miles were his zero days. They served for re-energizing, regrouping, rest and reflection. They were invaluable. We need zero days in our creative work. 24/7-always-on is not ultimately efficient if we don’t take breaks…

      I scored some bonus material. At the show of Paul Rand’s design work at the Museum of the City of New York I stumbled into the end of Eli Kince’s FIT class visit. Prof Kince is clearly an inspirational teacher. I spoke to some of the students after he’d headed for the cafeteria and they were rapturous, “You just had him for 5 minutes and you got something – we get him for three hours a week!” But none of them followed him to the coffee bar, at least for another 20 minutes or so. He’d suggested that they stay behind and look at each piece of Rand’s…
  • It’s the experience, stupid!

    michaelpollock
    17 Apr 2015 | 7:30 am
    (with apologies to James Carville) Not for nothing is the world filling up with experience designers. Are you considering the experience you offer when you show your work to a client or employer? Like it or not, your success could depend as much on the experience of the process as the actual product. The customer experience with a brand from beginning to end is much studied and finessed – just like the user experience online. And your client or employer is your customer – working with you may not just be about the result – it may be about them liking the experience you offer…

    Interviewing is fundamentally an exercise in risk management. As a job seeker, your goal is to reduce any appearance of risk in hiring you. If you are looking for a job just like the one you have now, no problem — you already appear safe. But the minute you try to climb one rung up the career ladder or change careers, industry or functional area, you become more risky in the eyes of a potential hiring manager. Let’s say your industry is in decline and you just saw an ad for a growing industry that you’d love to jump into. You think, “I could easily transfer my skills…
  • How useful is pre-employment personality testing?

    Bob Corlett
    5 Mar 2015 | 11:45 am
    There’s something alluring about personality tests. We hope to learn something from the fun quizzes in Cosmo or BuzzFeed. Against all logic, we want these tests to work, even though we know deep down that multiple choice questions can’t really get at all the complexities of our personalities. At work, it’s hard to avoid the Myers-Briggs (MBTI) test. The MBTI is so common that Wharton professor Adam Grant calls it “the fad that won’t die.” At some point, almost every small employer considers using a pre-employment test to help gain insight into potential…
  • How to inspire your employees and increase their engagement

    Bob Corlett
    25 Feb 2015 | 5:10 am
    Gallup’s State of the American Workplace survey reports that 70 percent of U.S. workers are not engaged at work. If that’s a startling statistic for you, and you want more engaged employees, don’t hire a consultant to design new engagement initiatives. Instead, demonstrate your own engagement. I recommend you ditch your engagement projects. Far too many executives mistakenly chase engagement numbers to drive business performance, when they should instead be rolling up their own sleeves and jumping into the task. Why engagement matters Engagement is a side benefit of success,…
  • Your Recruiting Process Assumes Harvard Grads Cause Shark Attacks

    Bob Corlett
    19 Feb 2015 | 11:51 am
    Each year in May, about 1500 students graduate from Harvard. And within months of their graduation, there is a big, observable jump in both ice cream sales and the number of shark attacks. The data is predictable and tightly correlated, so obviously graduating from Harvard leads to shark attacks. Okay, perhaps Harvard graduates are not the cause of increased shark attacks (maybe ice cream is the real culprit). Or maybe there is something else going on here. When you confuse correlation with causation, you're going to be misled. Sadly, we humans are suckers for the shell game called…

    In previous articles, we discussed that Gen Y workers need to feel a sense of purpose when it comes to work, and while job satisfaction is important to them, money is as well. This week, let’s discuss a few other noteworthy Millennial characteristics companies should keep in mind when it comes to hiring Gen Y workers.

    What makes Millennials tick? In last week’s article, we discussed the fact that Millennials do more job hopping than previous generations, but it’s not because they are non-committal, it’s because they refuse to forgo happiness in order to stay in a position. They will leave once their needs are no longer being met. With Millennials quickly becoming the majority in the world of the working, it’s not an issue of whether or not to hire those from Gen Y, it’s how to attract and keep them.

  • Money Matters: Saving

    Krantcents
    27 May 2015 | 12:05 am
    Saving is income not spent or deferred consumption. Saving involves reducing expenditures such as recurring costs in terms of personal finance. It is the first step to achieve your financial goal. It may be to purchase a car, a down payment for your first home, vacation, or retirement. If you are like most people, life gets in the way of saving for retirement. Make saving a priority and find money to save! No excuses! Before you give me an excuse why you cannot save, make it automatic! If you set up a payroll deduction, the money will automatically go to your savings or money market account.

    Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States to remember the people who died while serving in the armed forces. It is observed every year on the last Monday in May. It was formerly known as Decoration Day and originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the soldiers who died during the war. It was a time to place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries. Memorial Day is still a time to honor those people who died in war, but it is much more.

Her book, advice and this conversation will get down to it with you finding the job you were called to do, and not what you “should” do. Do you look for jobs that you “should” take or are you looking for the job you are called to do?
  • Choose a Career Path Not a Job with Ryan Porter

    I found a site in the last year that exclusively promotes career paths for those who decide not to pursue post-secondary education. The site was eye-catching, attractive, and hyper-functional for the users as an energetic experience. The founder, Ryan Porter, epitomizes energy and synergy when I talked to him. Any time that a site, an idea, technology or person can positively engage a job seeker to clarity and simplicity, I’m interested in featuring it on the podcast. Has a lack of a college degree hindered you from career choices? Would a site that had more compatible choices for you…

  • How to Become an Expert in Your Chosen Field

    Chrissy Scivicque
    4 May 2015 | 4:39 am
    I’m going to make a bold statement here: In the field of professional development, I consider myself an expert. 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. You might be wondering what that actually means, so let me tell you: It means I feel an elevated level of respect. When I speak, my ideas are listened…

    I talk a lot about how to advocate for yourself, be loud and proud of all you do, and take credit for your work even when others are trying to steal the spotlight. 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. But, when others are involved, be sure to share credit where it’s…

I can hardly believe it. And yet, I can believe it because so much has happened. Here’s a quick overview of what’s been going on (and then I promise I’ll get into the details): I endured a painful (though ultimately incredibly necessary) break up I sank into the darkest depression of my life—so deep, I was terrified I might not recover I recovered I released a handful of people and habits that no longer…

    I’ve been thinking a lot about compromise lately. Some people do it too much in life, others not enough. Over the past year, I compromised a lot to be with someone I thought I loved. 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…

When your professional-self is a hazy memory, it’s hard to feel capable of picking up your career where you left off – whatever your reason for taking a break and whether it’s been 12 months, or more than a decade. You start off by thinking, “I don’t mind what I do”. Next, you trawl online sites for any job you could do that is flexible/local/pays enough. You fire off job applications and wait.

In articles and her book,Get to Work, she told women that they should avoid ever taking on more than half of the housework or child care. How to do it?

    Work/life balance is at best an elusive ideal and at worst a complete myth, today’s senior executives will tell you. But by making deliberate choices about which opportunities they’ll pursue and which they’ll decline, rather than simply reacting to emergencies, leaders can and do engage meaningfully with work, family, and community. They’ve discovered through hard experience that prospering in the senior ranks is a matter of carefully combining work and home so as not to lose themselves, their loved ones, or their foothold on success. Those who do this most effectively involve their…

Unless potential employers are considering internal candidates, their first impressions of job candidates come from resumes and cover letters. Make a good first impression and improve your odds of moving to the next level in the hiring process. Fail to impress (or worse, succeed in making a bad impression) and you can say goodbye to a lucrative job opportunity that really would have been perfect for you.

    Ever been told that writing is a waste of time? I mean it’s fine to do it on the side, so long as you focus on more serious pursuits. Right? That’s what I was told too and for years I believed it. As it turns out, that advice was a load of BS. Now I know that creative writing is the single most useful skill I could have learnt.   Let me tell you the story of how I ended up writing for a living.   At the age of 18, I graduated from high school, with top grades which, according to the ranking-obsessed Australian university entrance system, would have let me into just about…

I don’t think that every person in the world ‘should’ be self employed, I don’t think a travel-around-the-world lifestyle is intrinsically superior to all other options, and I don’t think that traipsing around the world with your business in a backpack is something ‘everyone’ will want to do.

The reality is there are plenty of companies who will hire you for your expertise regardless of your age if you can properly convey your value. Yet many executives looking for work still cite ageism as their main challenge in landing the job. Pardon the bluntness, but perhaps “ageism” isn’t the real problem here.

    27 Jan 2015 | 11:14 am
    Millions of U.S. small businesses are sweating it out right now trying to find inexpensive 1099 services. Unbeknownst to many who are accustomed to buying a box of forms, the most cost effective solution requires no travel or paper. WageFiling.com, an online service that I found while snowbound during the NYC blizzard that went bust was the silver lining to my problem. This very small, family-run business in Michigan does something very simple in a field that one might argue is mundane—taxes—but is particularly relevant right now for the millions of U.S. small businesses that need to get…
  • Shark Tank Lessons For Job Seekers

    20 Jan 2015 | 8:39 am
    OK, I admit it, “Shark Tank” is my latest guilty pleasure. I have been known to binge watch this reality show for hours on a weekend or holiday afternoon. For those of you not familiar with this phenomenon, “The Tank” allows inventors and entrepreneurs to appear before a group of millionaire investors in an attempt to secure financial and intellectual backing for their endeavors. The so-called sharks – who risk their own money to support the people who make their pitches — are folks like Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Kevin O’Leary, founder of O’Leary Financial…

    G Peters
    13 Nov 2014 | 8:43 am
    Maybe it’s because I’m old, or prideful, or envious, but if I see one more article with a headline that reads something like “The 40 Under 40 to Watch,” or “30 Difference Makers Under 30,” I might just light my hair on fire. Perhaps it’s the company I keep on the Internet or the magazines I read, but there isn’t a week that goes by that I don’t see at least one of these stories chronicling the exploits of the 30- and 40-somethings. To me, not only is it ageist, it also smacks of lazy journalism. Should we be shocked that someone is able to process higher thought just because…

     The challenges of introverts in the work force have been well documented in research studies, articles and surveys. After all, it would seem that in order to succeed in your career you would need to be an extravert. One such challenge many introverts face is that of showing passion during a job interview. In particular, it can be difficult for an introvert to talk about themselves or think on their feet because by nature they take their time to really listen and are more deliberate about responses. So how can an introvert overcome this challenge to show passion and enthusiasm?  …

    Daniel Sullivan
    14 May 2015 | 11:30 am
    Ageism as a challenge gets thrown around a lot in the executive recruiting world. There is this false assumption that because you’re a certain age that you won’t get the job. The reality is there are plenty of companies who will hire you for your expertise regardless of your age if you can properly convey your value. Yet many executives looking for work still cite ageism as their main challenge in landing the job. Pardon the bluntness, but perhaps “ageism” isn’t the real problem here. In fact, it’s very likely that perhaps you’re making some mistakes that portray you as dated,…

    Have you ever wanted to know the exact details of a job before you apply? If so, you may want to have a chat with Jon Chow, CEO of SecureTheJob.“A lot of people rely on job postings to learn about a job, but it takes much more than that”, said Chow. In a recent interview, Chow explained how he came to realize the disconnect between a job posting and the actual job. “There is a big flaw in job descriptions as most are only available when companies are actively recruiting. Between recruiting cycles, those same job descriptions remain stagnant. They hardly, if ever, take into…

    Every so often we hear or read about the death of the resume, but somehow it continues to hang on for dear life. Nowadays, though, it seems that this prediction has reached the cover letter. In two recent articles – one from Elevate Talent Network, and the other from The Huffington Post – it is being inferred that the cover letter is dying, or has died. This post is not to persuade the converts. It is purely to stand up for the cover letter even if we are witnessing its demise. Are Cover Letters a Waste of Time?

  • Tips for Getting the Best Job References

    7 May 2015 | 7:29 am
    It can be hard to figure out who to use as a reference whether you are just starting to work, returning to work after some time off or just in need of someone new and reliable.

Family is not an option due to the thought that they would say good things about you no matter what.

    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…
  • 5 Ideas To Help Increase Your Value In The Market Place

    admin
    7 Apr 2015 | 4:52 am
    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.

    Career trends change all the time and if you want to succeed in your job search process it is better to learn them. You probably know that career leaders and head hunters have their own demands and even if you are an experienced professional you may be unaware of certain new or even outdated requirements.

  • 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…

    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…

  • Internet at Work: How Much is Too Much?

    Juli Richardson
    18 May 2015 | 7:17 am
    Most of us have spent time surfing the web when we’re supposed to be working. Sure, some of us more than others— but when it comes to Internet at work, how much is too much? One survey, published by Vault.com, showed that 25% of employees openly admit to spending at least 10 non-work related minutes online while on the clock. That same survey showed 13% spend at least two hours online every day. If that weren’t enough Forbes reports that as much as 75% of workers age 18-35 confess to spending work-time online. If time is money, we definitely have a problem. Take that information and…

And your profile is more than just a profile—it’s a virtual resume, where you can list your achievements and highlight your history.

  • When a Recruiter Calls at a Bad Time

    When you’re looking for a new job, anytime is a good time for a recruiter to call. At least, that’s what you think. And, in theory, it’s accurate. After all, you want a job. You want that call. You want to get that call about the job. But timing really is everything. At the very least, it matters. If a recruiter calls you at a bad time, it may be obvious—whether you want it to be or not. Your concentration and reaction speed will be subpar. Your lack of enthusiasm and stress level may translate into disinterest. So what’s a girl or boy to do? Don’t panic. Here are a few…

It’s not often considered a “real addiction” and for the most part, we willfully admit to it, are proud of it, and even laugh it off. After all, if you’re a workaholic, you’re a hard worker. You’re dedicated. You take your work seriously.   But what if it really means you work too hard, too much, and take work too seriously? And what if those things translate to reduced happiness and increased stress. What if you really are addicted to work, forgoing your own personal health in favor of pushing yourself harder…

    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 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…

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.

Soon after reporting to that first job, the search becomes a quest for better conditions or a promotion. For the employed, job-seeking becomes career development. The internet and social media are essential to that. They reach wherever rewards are found…. within a company or in the uncertain outside.

  • What Types of Risks Does Every Entrepreneur Have to Take?

    Author
    25 May 2015 | 1:16 am
    Taking risks can be synonymous to running a business. However, a savvy businessman knows that not all risks need to be taken. This is because a good entrepreneur will only take action once he knows what he is getting himself into. So, what are the types of risks that business people will most likely encounter? Abandoning a steady-paying job. Saying goodbye to your career is never easy. It’s like going out of your comfort zone. But if you don’t do it now, then when? This is why you should have a backup plan in case your ventures don’t go well. Tapping into your own savings for capital.

    18 May 2015 | 8:22 am
    Every third week of April is the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, and this gives parents a chance to open their professional world for their kids to see and experience. It is normal for adults to educate their children regarding work, but what happens if the roles are reversed? What happens when the kids are the ones educating or training their parents about work? More and more Americans are still working well over 70, and this means older employees having bosses who are much younger than they are. For some, the bosses are their kids who have successfully set up businesses while young…

  • Truths, Dos and Don’ts about Office Romance

    Author
    3 May 2015 | 8:57 pm
    The long hours spent at work and with coworkers are reasons enough for two colleagues to get close and intimate with each other. Office romance, though prevalent and common, remains a taboo for many mainly because of the effects it has in the workplace. According to CareerBuilder survey, 40% of respondents have dated someone at work, and 17% have done it more than once. The survey also found that 72% of workers who had office romance are open about their relationships, twice as many as a few years back. People seem to be less discreet about their relationships with colleagues. Consequently,…

    So, you think you know everything about resumes, huh? Well, that’s good, but a lot of people really don’t. Let’s clear up a few things. Here are three things EVERYONE needs to know about resumes: 1. Your resume should be strictly fact-based. If your resume has any adjectives or any other subjective terms, you need to hit the Delete button ASAP. Employers and recruiters are looking for hard facts and skills. They are NOT looking for subjective statements like “hardworking team player” or “results-driven.”   Ew. Get. Away. Let’s stick to the facts, shall we? Only list hard…

    Has your relationship with your boss suddenly changed (and you’re not sure why)? It’s smart of you to notice, and even smarter of you to do something about it. So many of us settle for an unhealthy relationship with our manager, hoping that it will eventually blow over. The truth is, relationships are a lot like icebergs – what you see above the water is usually rooted in something much bigger happening beneath the surface. What you may experience as a pattern of sharp feedback or increased micromanaging might be rooted in something bigger. Even if it’s not, sweeping these concerns…

    A few months ago, my 10-year-old son announced that he wanted a new brand of body wash. He had been using Spiderman Berry Bubble for quite a while, so when he requested Axe Body Wash instead, I was a bit surprised. Nonetheless, I agreed, and we came home from the store with a large bottle of Axe Apollo shower gel. A few days later, we added the body spray to his collection. When I asked him why he chose this new brand, his response was “Spiderman is for little kids and, well Mom, it was time.” Since that day, he has not looked back. He showers daily, smells fabulous, and I’m starting to…

    Susanne Schlossbauer
    29 May 2015 | 3:00 am
    Leadership is the most important discipline for senior managers, perhaps because there are so many mistakes one can make. Whether it’s a project gone awry or an issue with computations, studies show that it’s often the fault of management, rather than the employees, when things go wrong in a company. That’s reason enough to review the importance of leadership within a company. How do you work most effectively with your team – and how does your team work best with you? Observing, cooperating, or simply letting them take charge? Find out what kind of leader you are!

In today’s job market, flexibility is a key quality for senior management, and top executives are expected to have a wide variety of skills and strengths. So rather than writing off the CMO position as a thing of the past, consider that perhaps it’s simply the title that’s changed, not the position.

What direction should we go in? How should we do it? Why has it been done this way? This doesn’t make sense, am I an idiot? For many people, this can be highly overwhelming and not at all enjoyable.

    My fundamental philosophy is that if we are not willing to open our minds, listen with our hearts and seek understanding of some of the most crucial problems of our time, then we have failed as leaders. Over the last few years, I have thought a lot about how leaders in government have been operating and ... Read More » The post Leadership in Government appeared first on Careers in Government.

    I receive a decent amount of emails each week from people seeking advice on marketing and career-related topics. In order to offer longer, more in-depth responses, I’m going to turn the best questions into actionable blog posts so others can benefit as well. Last week, I received an email from a friend, who recently launched a new marketing consulting startup, and his question is: How I can go about finding new clients and marketing suppliers? Here’s what I’ve got for him. Seven Ways I Find New Clients 1. WeWork Commons Membership – $45/mo It kills me to write about my secret…
  • Eight Ways I Meet Too Cool For School People Daily

    Lauren Holliday
    7 May 2015 | 6:52 pm
    I’m not very cool. Millions of people don’t know my name, and I’ve yet to do anything worthy of being a 30 Under 30. 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. Which leads me to the million-dollar question from the people, who do know my name. How the hell do I meet these people – these celebrities? (Important note: This post won’t teach you how to meet celebs, like, say, Ryan Gosling. Please holler at me if you know how to hack that one.) Here’s six ways I meet really too-cool-for-school…

  • Catch 22: How To Get A Job Without Experience

    Lauren Holliday
    21 Apr 2015 | 5:30 am
    It’s a catch-22: you need experience to gain experience. One obvious way to gain experience is to undertake a paid or unpaid internship, which may lead to one of the following problems: You cannot afford to work as an unpaid intern You do not have the extra time in your schedule You have no prior experience Or you have two months left until graduation Now, what do you do? You get creative, and think outside the box. When you have a thick portfolio of proven, real-world experience, it makes no difference if it was from a three-month internship or if it was from volunteering or successfully…
  • Three Content Projects You Should Insource Immediately

    Lauren Holliday
    20 Apr 2015 | 12:33 pm
    One of the biggest misconceptions of working with interns is that one intern can act like Super(Wo)man for you. While it may be possible to find a full-stack freelern, the search will be difficult. So in order to economically and efficiently grow your business, you need to develop working relationships with multiple people. I like to call this “pair interning” or “paired freelerning.” Outsourcing different projects to different freelerns is the way to go for a few reasons. Projects get done quicker because people are focused. Contractors work together, answering questions one another…

  • 25 Ways For Creative People To Flourish

    Jessica Sweet
    17 May 2015 | 12:10 pm
      Creative people don’t always define themselves as creative. You don’t have to paint like Picasso to be creative. Creative people are simply those who come up with new ideas, use old ideas in a new way, and put ideas together or make associations between things that don’t seem related at first glance. My guess is that you’re creative, even if you feel like your work is smothering your creativity. The truth is, you’re not alone. In a study done in 2012, 80% of people felt that tapping into creativity was the key to economic growth, but only 25% felt they…
