    With millennials making millions in the tech industry or inventing world-changing devices every Monday morning, failure can be a particularly bitter pill to swallow for young entrepreneurs. But between the challenge of finding a job in today’s economy and the entrepreneurial startup battle cry of our generation, it’s a risk many young people are taking. When you start a business the odds are against you from the get-go — and statistically, most businesses fail. If your venture fails, the hardest part may be explaining to all of your corporate friends why you’re not rubbing…

    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…

    A few months in at my last job the greatness started to wear off. I wish it could have been different. The main issue was my relationship with my boss. He never complimented me or thanked me for my hard work. Every idea that I presented was ignored. My boss, while a good manager on his good days, was a bit of a grump on bad days. 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. It didn’t take long for me to realize that I wanted out. Here’s the thing: everyone wants a team of…

  • Beliefs follow action; lessons from a pig farm bar mitzvah

    Penelope Trunk
    29 Jul 2015 | 8:46 am
    I studied rustic weddings for a year and realized that all the rustic wedding stuff feels like a parody on a working farm. So we had a very simple bar mitzvah lunch: harvest tables and flowers from the garden. I made all the food myself, from our farm and the farms of our Amish neighbors. I told everyone to wear the nicest clothes they could imagine wearing with boots made for walking through pig pens. This is what it looked like when people were arriving. I loved watching people traipse through the farm. And watching my son in action was just breathtaking. I felt, for a moment, that I…

    I am writing this post at the hairdresser. It’s my son’s second haircut this month. He loves the process of reinvention. While the haircuts feel extravagant, I like that he knows what he wants. Maybe I overvalue this trait in a person because the most frequent issue I deal with on coaching calls is helping people figure out what they want. It’s a very difficult thing to do, at any stage of life. But then, when they’ve figured out what they want, they almost never have a resume that is ready to get them what they want. Rewriting your resume is what you do at the very…

    As someone who compulsively throws stuff out, I was thrilled to hear that the bestselling book worldwide right now is about throwing stuff out: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, by Marie Kondo. You should buy that book right now because my husband and I both loved it. I knew I’d love it because I am compulsive about throwing things out. She gives me deep spiritual justification for throwing out stuff my kids look for three weeks later. My husband loves the book because it feels entirely illogical to him that we keep things we don’t use, and it’s a relief to have the…

  • 5 Signs Employees are Thinking About Leaving -- and What to Do About It

    28 Jul 2015 | 7:14 am
    Managers know that disengaged workers are a problem, but they may not realize the truly big impact such workers have on the bottom line — and how much better engaged workers perform.For example, disengaged workers cost their organizations an average of $3,400 every year for every $10,000 in annual salary, according to statisticsfrom McLean & Co. On the other hand, companies with highly engaged employees had an average three-year revenue growth of more than 20% compared to the average 9% revenue growth rate.Further, an AON Hewitt study finds that organizations that…

    When can telling the truth be counter-productive?During a performance evaluation.In a recent analysis by Ivan Marinovic of the Stanford Graduate School of Business, it was found that honest appraisals actually boost costs and cut profits because they increase the chances of erratic efforts that people put into their jobs.Marinovic came to this conclusion after building a model that treats a job as a sort of game tournament, using employee competitiveness to drive results. For example, if a manager was less than honest about how well an employee performs, then he can put the pressure on…
  • SEAL Team Six Member Shares Leadership Lessons

    22 Jul 2015 | 1:22 pm
    When a Navy SEAL comes up against an obstacle at work, he doesn’t head for the nearest pub where he complains about his problems or blames his inaction on a lack of resources. You won’t find him dragging his feet when times get difficult, and you won’t find him abandoning teammates because he thinks they have lousy ideas.Well, sure, you might think — that’s because he’s a SEAL. These elite fighters are trained to never give up, and it’s unlikely that they’d sit around flummoxed by a shipping error in Toledo or a software glitch in Anaheim.But what if you could train…
  • 4 Ways to Ensure You're Not Overlooked at Work

    20 Jul 2015 | 8:03 am
    No one likes to be passed over for a promotion or big project, but if you ask even the most successful people if it's happened to them -- they will probably respond "Yes."But if you're continually passed over for a promotion or denied access to important projects (or people), you may need to look deeper at the root cause.One thing to consider is that the boss or other senior leaders just don't believe you "get it." To be more specific, they don't believe you truly grasp the company's goals and how to help achieve them on a consistent basis.What are your organization's three top priorities?

    When a program, strategy or project fails to achieve its goals, the reason can often be traced back to the very beginning when no one seemed to clearly define or agree on the problem.That may sound a bit strange – how can any organization move forward with a solution unless they clearly understand the problem?Yet, it happens more often than anyone would probably like to admit, which is why Satish P.

  • How to Apologize by Email: 5 Steps to Help Fix Your Big Mistake

    Wendy Johnson
    29 Jul 2015 | 10:00 am
    Let’s face it — we are all human and we’re all going to make mistakes at work. The best way to apologize is in person. But we can’t always do that. Email is tricky: the reader can’t see your face and know that you are sincere. So when you are forced to apologize via email, how can you show you are sincere and not look like a crybaby or, even worse, an arrogant jerk who won’t admit their error? Never underestimate the power of a simple apology. Apologizing can immediately diffuse tension and disarm hostile situations. An apology can also be a great opportunity…

We know it’s an important part of growing our careers, but it makes many of us feel like used car salesmen — fake, forced, pushy, and only interested in the sale (in this case, advancing our own careers).

    David Zinger
    28 Jul 2015 | 1:44 am
    Here are 10 “bricks” I use for employee engagement. The bricks from top to bottom and left to right are: results, performance, progress, relationships, recognition, moments, strengths, meaning, wellbeing, and energy. They were unstructured bricks until one day I played with them and they rearranged themselves into a pyramid. I like the 10 bricks and the pyramid but you can use your own bricks or another structure for employee engagement. Perhaps you can use my bricks or structure as a foundation or a launching pad. Or maybe in rejecting my bricks and structure you make a…

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.

  • Build Competence Through Questions

    Steve Roesler
    20 Jul 2015 | 5:17 am
    Leaders do have to tell people exactly what to do when a person isn't yet competent--and confident--about the task or assignment. (The whole "leader" thing isn't just about high-concept and vision). But how do you develop managers who are knowledgeable and committed? You can build increased confidence and deeper understanding by asking questions designed to help them make their own discoveries and decisions. Here are seven questions to get you started as  a "coaching" leader: As you become more comfortable with probing questions, you'll develop your own. Do you have any favorites now?

So, everything of consequence leads to confronting and resolving some kind of issue that leads to a choice about personal change. All of the choices aren't always huge, but they are necessary in order to develop more healthy and effective patterns of work and leadership.

  • Employee Engagement: Pay Attention to These

    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.

    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.

    By now, you've heard that the suspension handed down to Tom Brady by the NFL for improper "deflating" footballs (4 games this season) has been upheld. Tom, Tom, Tom.  You could have dealt with this 6 months ago. For the uninitiated, Brady's a quarterback in professional football. The rules state that footballs must be inflated to a certain range of pressure, and each team gets to submit footballs they want to use in a game.  The balls are checked by the officials, who generally - and I'm not making this up - squeeze them to make sure they feel "right".

    Evil HR Lady
    14 Jul 2015 | 5:37 am
    James was fired from his jobfor missing 3 days of work during the first 90 days on the job. Pretty straight forward, right? The company had a clear policy – 3 days gone and you’re out – and the HR department applies it fairly and across the board. No exceptions. Sounds like a great sick leave policy with no room for bias or discrimination to play a role. Except consider the following additional facts. James came in every day and his supervisor sent him home because he appeared ill. James wasn’t actually contagious – he was just suffering side effects from an…

  • Tips for Interviewing While Pregnant

    Shweta Khare
    10 Jul 2015 | 11:13 am
    Interviewing during pregnancy – should I tell or not? The company that you are interviewing with has no right to ask about your pregnancy status and you are in no obligation to tell them about it. As someone rightly mentioned in one of the forums, “Although pregnancy shouldn’t legally impact employment decisions, it makes the interviewing process a bit more awkward than it would otherwise be.” Usually the first trimester is the one where you should not be telling about your pregnancy because you still have 6 months ahead of you where you can work to the best of your ability.

  • Job Interviews – Ace the Most Common Questions

    Shweta Khare
    8 Jul 2015 | 4:05 pm
    Advice for job interviews is everywhere, and a lot of it tends to cover the same basic range of information: look polished, be confident but humble, be on time, have questions to ask about the company or position, and so forth. But the truth is, most of these little tips are things that a well-prepared, strong candidate is likely to do anyway. More in-depth advice, such as our previous post about body language during an interview, can still be helpful, even to the most prepared and polished candidates. So in this article, I’m going to address not just how to prepare for interview…

    “A company is stronger if bound by love than by fear.”Herb Kelleher, cofounder of Southwest Airlines When Kip Tindell, CEO of The Container Store, first heard Herb Kelleher’s words more than 40 years ago he was, in his own words, “completely taken by it.” In Tindell’s excellent book, Uncontainable, he describes how he and his leadership team went on to shape The Container Store’s outstanding “employee first” culture in ways that reflect love. He credits the company’s culture for its success. The first time I heard the word “love” uttered in a corporate context…

  • 3 Insights About Stress Every Leader Should Know

    Katie Russell
    19 Jul 2015 | 3:01 pm
    Who experiences greater levels of stress: non-leaders or the boss? When I ask this question while teaching workshops on leadership, nearly all the bosses in the room respond that they are the ones under greater stress. They’re wrong. Hard data makes it clear that non-leaders experience greater stress and in many instances it has a negative effect on their performance.   Consider two studies published in 2014 by Gary D. Sherman, et al. In the first, a sample of non-leaders in the Boston metropolitan area were compared to middle- to high-level government and military leaders…

    Texans know every herd follows a lead steer. On several days throughout the year, you can see a herd in the old cow town of Fort Worth, Texas, a city of approximately 800,000 people, following its lead steer. The surprise, however, is that this herd is on bicycles and its lead steer is their mayor, Betsy Price. Mayor Betsy Price mounts her bike each summer to lead “rolling town hall meetings.” Over the course of the summer, these rides take place in different parts of town, encouraging city residents to participate in their local government while getting active. At the end of the ride,…

    Life happens. While we try to control even the tiniest aspects of it, there are always events that can simply never be predicted. Needing to care for an elderly loved one or even realizing you want to be a full-time mom or dad results in wonderful family time but can leave you stranded once you’re finally ready to get back to a full-time job. Even gaps as small as one year can make your resume seem unappealing to potential employers that could very well read into the gap as a bad omen. Take a deep breath, and calm yourself down. Gaps where you spent your time working more than 40 hours a…

    Employee engagement plays an integral role in any company’s growth. When employees are motivated to excel and contribute to an organization’s success, it results in improved performance and productivity. However, engagement isn’t a one-way street. Employers must take action to engage employees, rather than expect them to be engaged with a mere list of tasks. Employee engagement results in a sense of fulfillment and success for employees, while furthering the company’s success, especially in a work landscape where 70% of U.S. employees feel miserable at work.

Death of a loved one, divorce, losing a friend, major illness, moving, caregiving … the usual suspects. Then, thanks to grazing on brainpickings.org, I discovered the link between unrelenting stress and the deleterious effect on your memory, physical well-being and emotional stability. What a bummer. All bad news. Well, there was a bit of good news. In the moment, a sudden stressor shuts down any unnecessary bodily function so the organs, systems and limbs you need get fully…

    I’m an impatient person. On a scale of 1 to 10, I’m a “why the bloody hell hasn’t it happened, yet?” That’s the problem when I start to see five steps ahead. I want to skip the first four steps and get right to the end point. And yet, I know that totally ignores opportunities for personal growth and the learning that comes with the sometimes long and tedious journey. Now, let’s add that I am a recovering perfectionist, which means that I want to make the colossal jump to step five with brilliant strategy, ideal focus, and flawless execution. Kind of…

    Last year, when I was in the hellish gutter of one of the worst depression and anxiety episodes of my life, I kept seeing articles pop up in my Facebook feed talking about “mentally strong people” and the actions they take every day. At the time I felt anything but mentally strong. I was just trying to get through each day, moment by moment, without completely losing my shit. Some days I managed to hold it together; others, I was in one of the office bathroom stalls quietly praying to just not exist. It’s not that I wanted to die, I just didn’t want the continued…

    For those of you who follow sports and professional basketball, the most recent LeBron free-agency media hurricane could be seen as fascinating, inane, or some combination of both. Most of us remember the widely criticized facepalm moment which was The Decision four years ago when The King decided to leave his hometown of Cleveland to take his talents to South Beach. At the time, I was one of his detractors, not just for instigating the circus but running out of a town desperate for one of their own to deliver them from sports purgatory.

    As I speak with nonprofit leaders, one key question continues to emerge: Why do our donors give? On the surface, the answer may seem obvious, but the question persists because it’s truly difficult to answer. We all give for different reasons and with different motivations. Yet, the question of “Why?” follows the challenge of “How?”: How do we motivate giving of all types: money, time, talent, and energy? As The NonProfit Times wrote in a recent blogpost: “There is no denying that you can’t force someone to give if they don’t want to.” To…

    This is a short post, but one that I believe is important. I receive emails from other nonprofits – many of which I support and want to hear from. I also want to see if I can “borrow” good ideas for my own work. However, there is one thing that I’m seeing that simply is not a good idea…unless you really do want to drive away precious supporters, volunteers, and donors. Simply put: Yes, it is possible to send too many emails to your constituents. If you’re sending out more than 2-3 emails per week, ask whether your efforts are yielding the desired results.

This month, Gallup released findings that 85 percent of German employees are disengaged at work — and it’s costing the country €275 billion a year (about $304 billion U.S.) in lost productivity. That’s almost double the amount two years ago. Why is this happening? What…

  • The FBI Wants Twitter To Become A Better Terrorist Fighter

    James Kosur
    29 Jul 2015 | 12:39 pm
    If FBI officials in Washington, D.C. have their way the executives at Twitter will do a better job of fighting terrorism. In an exclusive interview with Fox Business, officials at the bureau say Twitter “needs to do more in setting up teams to troll, monitor and review all terrorist-related tweets and content. It needs to build up its budget for these teams and let these teams grow even bigger.” Twitter already notifies the FBI when a possible terroristic tweet is sent, however, the company has yet to turn a profit and adding new monitoring tools for billions of monthly tweets could…

US District Judge Dale Fischer in Los Angeles, dismissed a similar complaint in March and said on Tuesday the Oklahoma Firefighters Pension and Retirement System did not show the defendants defrauded shareholders by concealing the company’s inability to track retail sales. The judge also said that the move by CEO Michael Johnson’s to reduce his own Herbalife stake by a net 12% over roughly one year did not raise suspicions, nor did disclosures that top…

    Microsoft Windows 10 was released for free today and the very first reviews of the company’s new operating system are in. The new OS is not only a big upgrade from Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, it’s also free. David Pogue at Yahoo loves the upgrade, writing, “You really are going to love Windows 10. You’ll almost certainly want to upgrade your computers to it, especially since it’s free,” and that “if you’re a PC veteran, then you’ll recognize Windows 10: It’s pretty much Windows 7, with Cortana, nicer typography, and a few new features.” Tom…

    28 Jul 2015 | 9:15 am
    The number of Americans who own their homes is at the lowest rate since the 1960s. According to Bloomberg a multiyear decline has occurred because of families who are still struggling to climb out of the financial crisis while deciding to rent instead of own. The U.S. homeownership rate was 63.4 percent in the second quarter, down from 63.7 percent in the previous three months, the Census Bureau reported Tuesday. That’s the lowest rate since 1967. Rates have not been helped by more stringent mortgage standards which now avoid predatory lending and focus on a family’s actual…

Microsoft has not issued a major OS upgrade in 3 years, instead focusing on a quick fix from the critically hated Windows 8 to the slightly less annoying Windows 8.1. For the last 9 month’s Microsoft has been showing off Windows 10’s capabilities, offering short videos and quick screen captures for the highly sought after release. According to Business Fanatic, “The OS update won’t be sent out all at once.

    Bernie deKoven points to this fascinating article by Peter Gray that examines quitting. Here’s an excerpt: We like to think of human rights in affirmative terms, so we speak most often of our rights to move toward what we want:  our rights to vote, assemble freely, speak freely, and choose our own paths to happiness. My contention here, however, is that the most basic right—the right that makes all other rights possible—is the right to quit.

    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…

  • It May Sound Like Goldilocks, but Pregnancy Discrimination Is No Fairy Tale

    Elaine Quayle
    28 Jul 2015 | 6:00 am
    It sounds like a workplace version of Goldilocks, but to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), it was no fairy tale, and the employer may have played the big bad wolf. Once upon a time, two servers at a Tennessee restaurant told their managers they were pregnant.  As happens during a pregnancy, the women kept getting larger and larger.  The managers kept asking them when they were due to deliver their babies. According to WMCA ActionNews5 Memphis, one day, the owner walked through the restaurant and told one of the women that she was “too big” to do her waitressing job,…

I am ready now.” Wilson understood what so many don’t. To be exacting and concise with your words takes thought and preparation. And there’s a lot to be said for brevity!

  • EEOC Ruling on Sexual Orientation Discrimination

    Bridget Miller
    23 Jul 2015 | 10:04 am
    With the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision making same-sex marriage bans illegal across the country, many people have raised the question of discrimination. It may be legal for same-sex couples to marry, but it’s still also seemingly legal in many areas for businesses to discriminate based on sexual orientation. These two issues are fundamentally incompatible. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) must have taken note of this. As of July 16, 2015, they’ve issued a new case ruling declaring that discrimination based on sexual orientation is already illegal and is covered by…

When I was going through high school, trying to decide what I wanted to do in life, I got the impression that these specific benefits were very important.

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.

    “Our greatest fear should not be of failure, but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.” – Francis Chan The above quote came from a friend of mine. 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). I have changed a lot I was impacted by the second chances given When I considered the quote, I could make sense of my journey over a good ten years of living Life is a story, I’m…
  • Work and Employee Happiness

    Eric
    1 Jun 2015 | 4:32 am
    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…

    “It’s only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth – and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, we will then begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.” – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Have you ever experienced a simple, and perhaps random, moment in time that altered the course of your life? Life has a way of giving us the experiences we need at the perfect time.  Sometimes our whole lives can be redirected through the insight gained from that one defining moment.  A statement that my sister…

    “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”- Mary Oliver The body speaks to us; it will scream for our attention by breaking down in any of innumerable ways if we ignore the signs that our lives are making us sick.  I hated my job of 9 years so much that I could barely lift my arms and legs to get out of bed in the morning, but I ignored the obvious for as long as I could. I had chronic fatigue, insomnia, a heavy depression I carried like a weight. I knew I had to make a change, but my fear of the unknown had me trapped. The Prison of Fear For 25 years,…

    Have you heard of the seven-year itch?  The classic term describes how a marriage declines around the seventh year, largely because the two partners aren’t as satisfied with each other as they once were. My first serious relationship crashed and burned in a spectacular way around the seven year, so I’ve carried this idea around for quite some time.  Now my second marriage is closing in on the seven years, and for a while, I’ve waited for the other shoe to drop.  When will he become dissatisfied with me?  When will I start daydreaming about getting out of the relationship?  How…

    Travel has been known to change lives. In books like Eat, Pray, Love and Wild, a personal journey is possible only by physically getting away and discovering the world. Travel can be the catalyst that changes your life forever. There’s no guarantee travel will change your life. I love to travel, but I didn’t come back from Japan a Zen monk, I didn’t return from Cuba a salsa dancer, and I didn’t convert to Islam in Morocco. What travel did, is help me see myself differently.

    “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…

    When I entered the business world for the first time, I took my Type-A self with me. I was accustomed to executing, perfectly, everything I wanted to do. The thought of my company having a mind of its own terrified me, but I learned quickly that this was the reality. There was so much about Corporate America that I could not control, and I had a decision to make. Was I going down with a stress-induced stomach ulcer, or was I going to become more comfortable with nonsensical approaches and difficult situations? I took the latter path, but it was years before I could say I was okay when…

    Executive coaching is professional intervention with a focus on developing the skills needed to drive change, manage complexity, build top performing teams, and maintain a strong personal foundation to thrive under challenging conditions. It can be worthwhile, but also very expensive and time-consuming. The hard truth is, there are times when you should make the investment in an employee, and times when you should save your money. My friend Marshall Goldsmith wrote an article detailing some of these circumstances, and I’ve added a few of my own. She doesn’t…

    The New York Times recently reported on a 30-year-old man who shot his rich dad because the father had the nerve to decrease his allowance a few hundred dollars. The dad had been paying the son’s pricey Manhattan rent and was also giving him spending money. He cut the latter down a bit and paid for it with his life. This is obviously an extreme example of what happens with Baby Boomers overparent their Millennial children, hovering over them like helicopters and protecting them from any remote adversity or failure.

    I saw this article on Inc.com that grabbed my attention: CRM Enters the SMB Mainstream.  The subtitle says “even the smallest companies can afford today’s easy-to-use solution. In fact, they can’t afford not to.” Of course, my brain took the idea straight to the job search world, and my translation became: “Even the smallest job seeker (whatever that means) can afford today’s easy-touse solution (JibberJobber).

    Years ago, I dated a boy whose mom had a part-time job working for an artist. She didn’t earn money. She received art. When I challenged this boy on his family’s wealth, he tried to tell me that his family wasn’t affluent. I rolled my eyes. When you earn art for a paycheck, you don’t have problems in life. That’s when this kid yelled, “My mum has a job! People don’t just work for money, Laurie. Art is currency!” I was just a kid, but I wondered — in what world is artwork considered currency? OMG, I rolled. On my side. Off the couch. I…

    When someone shows you who they are, you should believe them. Maya Angelou said that, and I think was talking about Donald Trump. Donald Trump is very racist. There’s no bigger example of Trump’s racism the 2004 season finale of The Apprentice. (Yes, this is ancient history.) Trump cast Omarosa Manigault as a villain and then chose Bill Rancic over Kwame Jackson. Before the choice is made, Kwame Jackson is asked to work on a final project with a team of people. Omarosa is cast as a partner. She is rebellious, and in retrospect, it seems like she sabotaged Kwame’s project at…

There are excellent pieces on unlimited PTO, giving up technology for a weekend, and paternity leave. You should go check it out. But reading about work-life balance never saved anybody’s sanity.

LinkedIn is a fabulous resource, but Google+ can be used to supplement a job seeker’s strategy and open new doors that could be challenging to open when relying exclusively on the power of LinkedIn. Here are five reasons why job seekers shouldn’t ignore Google+ and why it’s a viable platform that can be integrated into a search campaign. Google+ is a social network built by the company that’s held the rank of the #1…

  • Stop Trying to Define a Salary Range for Moms

    Barbara Safani

    Over the years a few annual surveys have come out about working and stay-at-home mothers right around Mother’s Day. Salary.com has the How Much Are Mom’s Worth? salary wizard which calculates how much someone would be paid for all of the jobs moms do (teacher, cook, chauffeur, etc) and reminds moms that all the work they do is worth a six-figure salary even though they never actually see a dime. And the CareerBuilder’s Working Mothers Survey published a few years back reported that close to a quarter of working moms take work home and reminds moms that they are not alone in…
  • Stress and Sedentary Behavior Leads to Weight Gain at Work

    According to a recent CareerBuilder survey, the stresses associated with full-time employment may be a contributing factor to weight gain among US employees. Of the 3,000 people surveyed, 57 percent of workers feel they are overweight. The survey also revealed: – Extremely high-stressed workers were 49 percent more likely to be overweight than those under extremely low stress – 63 percent of workers with wellness benefits/gym access do not use them – Professional & business services/IT workers most likely to gain weight at present jobs – 42 percent of workers say…

    After having been at the Center for Deep Listening in Troy, NY, for about a month now, I can say that this summer has been such a great learning experience for me. My main internship project has been to archive the many boxes of artifacts and media that have been sent from the center’s old location in Kingston, NY, to the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I am just wrapping up the first step in the archival process, which is to record each box and the contents inside it, take a picture of the contents, label the box, and repeat.

The system is so big, complex and intricate that it gets a bit overwhelming. Furthermore, we are the first company to have such a system. No other company in the world has the kinds of storage needs that Facebook has; we are pioneering in the area. Therefore, we can’t search on the internet about how things work.

I’ve been doing all sorts of things here with my department, which has given me a better sense of exactly what they do on a day-to-day basis. I’ve been doing the stereotypical intern tasks like picking up dry cleaning and mailing packages, but they’ve also given me a lot of other responsibilities.

  • Thomas Jefferson Speaks to Anthony Scalia

    Dan Erwin
    13 Jul 2015 | 12:34 pm
    July 4th is a good time to look back at the founding fathers--and especially their attitude toward the Constitution. Many scholars and judges could learn something--especially those who, like Scalia, are fixated on "original intent." What the founders absolutely did not want was to be embalmed, or to have their prescriptions taken as sacred script. That fundamentalism is not only wrong-headed, it's as stupid and dangerous as the religious fundamentalism in Evangelicalism, Judaism and Islam. And, surprisingly for most, Anthony Scalia's "original…

    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…

    Listening is far more difficult, more fatiguing and often more frustrating than talking. But no, you can't become a better listener by listening harder. 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…

Another and more mature moral fervor would be structured by the classic ideal of the worldly philosopher, by the desire to confront not hide from what you fear, but to engage the complexity of the world, and to know that sometimes the way to wisdom involves hurt feelings, tolerating difference and facing hard truths.    --David Brooks, NYTimes, 6/1/2015 Clearly, Brooks has inherited the mantle of national thought…

    Everyone has a different work-life balance, but we give the impression that there is a formula that exists that we should apply to every single employee. The trick as a leader is to recognize this, and not to assume that because you like to work one way that other people do, too. Remember that you’re setting the organisational culture through your behavior. First, let’s talk about email. The mobile device is a cool thing if you love Tinder, but it’s also the biggest challenge to work-life balance that exists. We’ve all done the “I’ll just check and see whether…” routine. And,…

I realized quickly that the pundits were correct: Nothing prepares you for being a full-time parent. Fortunately, being in academia, I had significant discretion in planning my schedule. I could stay home three mornings a week while my wife worked. However, it often meant heading into the office at 5 a.m. on Saturdays to catch up on the work that I missed while I wasn’t in the office. The one option that was unavailable to me, however, was paid leave. At the time…

Let me emphasize one thing: This is one of the more important questions you will ever be asked in an interview. Regardless of your qualifications, how you respond to this question will have a direct bearing on whether or not you receive an offer from the employer. Be very careful how you answer it. At the outset, it’s important to point out you don’t have to answer this question. This question…

    When you’re on the job hunt, having a ton of interviews can get exhausting—especially if they don’t lead to an actual job. Roughly 60% of all job hunters undergo three or more interviews before receiving an offer. However, according to a recent survey by Right Management, only 3% have one interview before landing a job.  After all, most employers consider four to five candidates for a job opening. If you’re in that pool, you have a 75-80% chance of not getting the job. And if you don’t find yourself in any second round interviews, you might want to re-evaluate how you present…

    I still remember walking down the street each morning, eagerly anticipating what would happen when I arrived in the studio. It was 2008, and I was a few weeks into an internship at CTV News.

One day I’d be speaking to politicians, and on another I’d be joking with entertainers and athletes. My first ever internship showed me how things worked in a national newsroom, and provided me with…

At this point, employers aren’t just looking for bodies to fill a position and jobs are no longer part-time – this is the beginning of your career.

  • Overcoming The Fear Of Employee Engagement

    Alexander Maasik
    29 Jul 2015 | 8:00 am
    Engaging your workforce may be a scary thing. Especially if you haven’t done it much. As with any relationship, it’s scary to find out that your employees don’t think exactly like you, even if you know that all people have different ideas, plans and ambitions. But these different ideas and plans are what will give your company strength and make employee engagement such a powerful tool for every entrepreneur. The Benefits Of Engagement I probably don’t have to emphasize the positive sides of employee engagement. According to ACCOR, 90% of leaders know it’s impact.

    Last time, in Why We Don’t Need To Reinvent The ATS, I disscussed the common frustrations companies experience with Applicant Tracking Systems. In this installment, we’ll consider if we should now look to reinvent the ATS? Should We Reinvent the ATS? There have been a number of new ATS companies sprouting up over the past year or two, and many have received positive reviews from early adopters. But I’d suggest that much of the praise is from small- and medium-sized businesses that require less functionality and in many cases have different needs. The majority of the large…
  • Are You a One-Pitch Leader?

    TalentCulture Team + Guests
    28 Jul 2015 | 6:00 am
    In baseball, the term “one pitch pitcher” refers to a pitcher who is overly reliant on one type of pitch (fastball, curveball, etc.) to be effective. History tells us this approach has limitations and ultimately limited success. They lack the versatility in their repertoire of pitches to solve the many different kinds of situations they face in the course of a game. Experts will tell you that the best pitchers have 3-4 different pitches they can throw at any given time and at any velocity they choose to solve the predicament in front of them. Now, imagine that you are the leader of an…

    Diversity plays an important role in our society, especially in the U.S. workforce. According to a report by CareerBuilder, the number of female workers has increased to 4.9 million as compared to male workers of merely 2.2 million in the past 13 years. Furthermore, Hispanics are predicted to be the second largest group in 2025, accounting for 17 percent of the total labor force [1].

    The following post originally appeared on the Jobipedia blog and is being shared with permission from the HR Policy Foundation. “I hope this meeting goes well.

But what exactly is ESGR and why is it important for employers to support this initiative?

    Payday loans are the most expensive personal loans you can get, some companies charging as much as 400% APR (annual percentage rate) on their loans.

Even if it is possible to make the mortgage payments, the up-front expenses of your down payment and closing costs might just be enough to make you think that first home ownership is beyond your reach. Fortunately, that isn’t necessarily so as there is help available. Local Government Assistance Some communities offer assistance to low income…

His rationale may be predicated on the need to understand technology and the impact of it. Everything moves faster and you need to be fit enough physiologically to maintain that momentum. As the years roll on and you naturally slow down, leaders over 40 years will become less likely to hold their positions for long.

  • How to Forgive a Boss who’s Wronged You

    benfanning
    27 Jul 2015 | 12:25 pm
    I woke up one morning a few months ago and blurted out, “Jerk!” I’d been having a dream about my boss…from 9 years ago. As an executive coach and consultant, I enjoy helping others with challenging personal interactions, but I’ve held onto some serious resentment towards the worst boss I’ve ever had. You see I’ve had a lot of bosses in my career…some great…some not so great, but there was one that wounded me so deeply years ago that I’ve struggled to forgive him even after all this time. Sometimes I’d fantasize about what I would say to him if I ran into him at the…
  • One Simple Question to Instantly De-Stress

    14 Apr 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Ever wondered how to de-stress? Well, here’s something that can help. I woke up feeling stressed recently with an overload of projects as well as a glut of email that poured in overnight and just added to my day’s responsibilities. Over breakfast I began venting to my wife and she replied with a simple question that I’ve often used with my clients but I’d completely forgotten about… “What’s at stake?’ Once I was reminded, it put things in perspective.  The stakes were actually fairly small.  So something ran a little late or the project wasn’t perfect. …

    I was inspired recently when someone in Quit Alternative Training Academy sheepishly asked: “I know this isn’t very ‘Quit Alternative‘ of me…but my organization just offered a severance package for those who want to quit.  Should I stay or quit and take the severance? Great Question! First off, no matter where you go in your career the mission is always the same…create the job you love. (tweet this). Staying on this mission is so incredibly important because its empowering and keeps you in the driver’s seat of your career. Secondly, even with a severance…

    Take control of your own professional development. Leaving your professional development up to your boss or organization is risky because: They may never invest in it. They may guess wrong in terms of where you’d like to develop. They may only provide it in limited doses…when there’s a new organizational initiative or when a you get a bad annual review. It’s too important for you to leave in the hands of others, and the good news is that taking control is much easier than you think.

    So when’s the best time for your professional development? Most people I meet agree that professional development is important but often they can’t find a “good” time.  It’s easy to put it off because there are almost always more pressing needs of the company, boss, friends, and family. But there’s one specific time of year you can often bank on for your own professional development.

  • Acing the American Job Interview (for International, ESOL, and Multilingual Candidates)

    Pamela Skillings
    1 May 2015 | 8:54 pm
    Job interviews are challenging enough when everybody’s speaking his or her first language. They’re even trickier for international ESOL students and candidates — and anyone who was raised in a different culture and/or with a different primary language. The American job interview is different from an interview in China or Brazil or the UK. Some differences are minor and others are more daunting. I have worked with hundreds of international students and job candidates — and coached hundreds of them to land jobs and internships at prestigious U.S.-based firms. I have seen similar…

    Applying for a new job can be stressful. It’s filled with minor decisions that can change everything such as deciding what to wear to interviews, asking previous employers to be references, and determining the most important things to list on your resume. When contemplating the latter, often times people don’t ever think to list one important skill: the ability to use social media effectively. Although there are certainly a number of things to avoid putting on your resume, social media skills should not be considered among them. For one, social media use is growing at a rapid rate in most…

    When you’re sitting in a job interview, you’re going to be fielding a lot of questions from a hiring manager. However, many applicants forget that the interview is the ideal time for them to ask some questions of their own. While the hiring manager wants to ensure that you’re a good fit for their organization, you also want to get a sense of what this company is all about too. To do that, make sure to ask the following questions: What’s the biggest issue facing the company and how might I be able to help?

    Earlier this month I began hiring new staff to join my company, providing resume writing services to US and Canadian job seekers. My HR manager presented me with a ton of applicants and gave me the job of selecting anyone that interested me, so that she could conduct an initial screening. From the remaining candidates we would begin interviewing. I noticed a very clear divide between the candidates that interested me, and the ones that didn’t make the cut. You may be surprised to hear that the deciding factor wasn’t the level of experience they had, nor what qualifications they held. In…

    Searching for a job is not always easy and can take a lot of time and effort.  However, one really great way for you to get solid advice and guidance in the job search process is by working with a head hunter or recruiter. While, technically, a head hunter’s customer is the hiring manager, the job is a bust without the right candidates.  With this in mind, if you are a skilled worker and a fit for the job, your interests are also in the interest of the head hunter. When working with a head hunter, it’s important to remember certain things that you should be doing from your end in order…

Let’s decode why your interviewer is asking you this, why it may stress you out, and most importantly how to answer. Salary question #1: What are you earning in your current role?

    The most difficult part of the job search for many is the dreaded interview. Interviews are designed to test applicants to see if they will be a good fit for the company. After an interview, it is normal to spend time waiting for a phone call as you hope to land that next job. However, if you pay attention to a few details, you can probably already tell if you have shot at the job or not. Knowing when an interview didn’t go as planned is just as important as feeling good when you know it went great. This allows you to stop the waiting game and keep going with your search so you can land a…

    “Thank you for your interest, but…” Your third interview with the company included senior members of the executive team. You thought the position was yours. The polite telephone call you just received, that began in this manner, let you know otherwise. After you graciously respond and end the call, you are, frankly, stunned. 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…

  • 7 Reasons You Can’t Learn Leadership on Your Own

    Michael O'Keeffe
    26 Jul 2015 | 5:00 pm
    Does leadership become easier or harder the higher up the corporate hierarchy you get? Although you would anticipate it would become easier, with the ability to draw upon years of experience, in reality it becomes much, much more difficult. Why? Because the higher you get the more isolated you become, the greater the repercussions, honest feedback becomes more difficult to obtain and there becomes less emphasis on leadership development for you than previously. Leadership development is difficult to quantify and when you’re at the top of the hierarchy there is no one above you to offer…

Sending out about a dozen applications per month. But no luck. So you sit at the same job longing for something better to appear. Sound familiar?

    Leadership is undoubtedly the key factor that dictates when (and whether) you make that transition into the c-suite. But how do you acquire the necessary leadership skills to be noticed? More often than not, people will read about it, either through books or online content. Its a good way. But it’s not a great way.

    Every year there are millions of jobs posted online. But every year there are even more jobs that aren’t posted at all. What is the Hidden Job Market? The ‘hidden job market’ is a term that references all of those jobs that aren’t posted online. Whether posted internally or in the hands of recruitment or executive search firms, the hidden job market is one area that executives often lose out on when they decide to go at it by themselves. Companies often prefer to fill positions without advertising, simply due to the reduced cost and time spent on the entire process. As a job seeker,…

Digital portfolios allow you to collect the work and projects you’re most proud of, and showcase them in an easily accessible and visually compelling way that can make hiring managers take note. Additionally, considering that a prospective employer is likely to Google you before making a hiring decision, a digital portfolio can make sure that they see relevant, work-appropriate information early in their search.

    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…

Nowadays, when an employee has a lunch date with his company’s CEO, it isn’t about sitting nervously across from a grim old man in a pin-striped suit.

These recruiters want applicants who can bring new, fresh ideas to the table, not just another worker to do the job. That’s why it’s important to know how and when to use buzzwords, not mention which words to steer clear of on the CV and in the interview. “Motivated” This is a no-brainer.

    I was watching an episode of the Sopranos TV series recently, called ‘The fleshy part of the thigh’. In it, there was a scene where Paulie (one of Tony’s silver-haired goons) confronted someone about their inability to play by their rules. Over the top of the scene there was an old song playing called ‘The Three Bells’ from the 1950s, which by today’s standards is quite old-fashioned. When it was played alongside the confronting Mafia scene, the song took on a menacing quality which changed my entire perception of the song. It is now one of my favourites!

    Penny Atkinson loved the freedom of working and travelling. But the novelty of living out of her suitcase was wearing thin. Here's how she put down new career roots that gave her direction (and a wardrobe), without sacrificing her altruistic ideals. What work were you doing previously? I spent the years after university working as an English teacher on and off for six years in Asia. I taught, then travelled for a bit, then taught, then travelled, etc. What are you doing now? International Assistant Manager for a volunteer organisation called SLV. Why did you change? Because I wanted to find a…

    Daniel has a successful career that he's worked hard to build, and importantly, he's financially comfortable. He wants to do something he's passionate about, but he knows he won't be able to match what he's currently making for a long time, if at all. Is it really possible to do what you love and still maintain the lifestyle you want, or will 'reality' always hold you back? What's your career history and current job? I'm the Business Development Manager for a fast-growing drinks company in the UK. The company kicked off as a start-up six years ago and I joined after Year 1. Previously I was…

    29 Jul 2015 | 10:42 am
    How would you feel if you could binge watch Netflix, enjoy some takeout and catch up on current events—all while getting paid by the mile in your big rig? With self-driving trucks, this futuristic idea may not be so far off. But then again, how many of you have seen the movie I, Robot? Since early May, Daimler has been testing their self-driving trucks on public highways in Nevada. These trucks are controlled by a computer system using a combination of GPS, radar and video cameras to identify obstacles on the road. Although these autonomous carriers still require a present driver in case…

    Hit The Road Jack
    27 Jul 2015 | 1:15 pm
    We’ve all heard of those ladies (and gentleman) of the night that have been rumored to roam truck stops seeking out lonely drivers. In this business, they’re affectionately known as “Lot Lizards” due to their tendency to crawl from truck to truck soliciting drivers seeking money for sexual acts or drugs (sometimes both). They also can be referred to as a “Pavement Princess”, “Sleeper Leaper,” or whatever tickles your fancy.  But, all kidding aside, they’re still a major issue in the industry. It’s dangerous, illegal, and honestly a…

    Hit The Road Jack
    24 Jul 2015 | 9:24 am
    It is no secret that the trucking industry is facing a driver shortage. By 2017, there could be more than 250,000 unfilled trucker jobs. In response, Congress is proposing a bill that would allow drivers 18 years old to get behind the wheel of commercial trucks traveling across state lines. This could very well be another step in solving the driver shortage across the nation, but the public remains hesitant. Currently, federal regulations require drivers to be at least 21 before they can drive big rigs across state lines. This new bill proposed by Republican senators would lower that age by…

    A huge issue as a driver is the problem with finding a safe place to “set up camp” for the night. There’s too many trucks, too little parking. The challenge of finding a safe place to park leads to the misfortune of wasted hours that you could be using sleeping or worse—getting attacked in an unsafe location. Some drivers find themselves resorting to unsafe locations like industrial parking lots, behind grocery stores, abandoned gas stations or freeway ramps.

Every move changes the ending, every decision gives you new possibilities or alternatives.

    Adedokun Abdul-Baaki
    26 Jul 2015 | 5:58 am
    Life is a rush and we are living in a frantic tempo. Not because we want to, but because the majority works that way and we just go with the flow. However, we can divide and let go of things that prevent losing our minds. One person is composed of things he does and does not do. Those things define our actions and how we formulate our thoughts in actions. Sometimes we have bad habits and mindset that we are not aware of. We will focus on the things we can let go of to start with the relaxation and start walking the path of the Zen. 1. Let go of comparing Comparing is taking the uniqueness of…

    26 Jul 2015 | 5:42 am
    Let’s make one thing clear: failure is not good.People try to say, “all great successes start with failure”. This is not true. Nor is true that Thomas Edison failed 10,000 times before he invented a light bulb. Don’t let people indoctrinate you into the faddish cult of failure. It’s depressing and makes you feel like you can’t get out of bed and nothing is worth it and nothing will ever work again. Also, failure can kill you. When Phillipe Petit walked on a tight wire between the two buildings of the World Trade Center, he couldn’t afford to fail.You…

      Just graduated from university? Congratulations and welcome to the workforce!  Do these words excite you or scare you to death? Transitioning from college to work can be a huge change.  It’s okay to feel exhilarated and nervous. I still remember how much I looked forward to starting my first full time job.  I was excited to finally make money and be part of the “real world”, but I also clearly remember my anxieties. I was afraid that I really didn’t know anything. I knew how to study, work the curve, and get my A.   My short term memory was fantastic, but I would…

    Being mentally strong at work is critical to your success.  How you build that mental muscle though, is often something that people don’t think about a lot while at work.  So I thought a post might help. which I think are the core aspect of being mentally strong.

When asked why was he so successful in committing these crimes, he replied, ‘I always go where the money is.’ Mentally tough people stay focused on developing the essential skills. Never drifting…

    They lied to us. We were given the impression that once we become lawyers, life will be a roller coaster ride and as sweet as heaven. We endured university and were excited to go to the Law school with the dream of living the ‘Big’ life. We were called to the ‘bar’ and alas the scale fell off our eyes. In fact, new wigs as we fresh/young lawyers are called have little or no value in the profession. If you do not understand what I mean, picture that generic requirement employers include in vacancies. ‘Applicants must possess so, so and so number of years of experience’ We suffer…
