by Bob Roth - Jun, 2015
College students and their parents know the difference between landing a job and landing a good job. College leaders know too, but some help more than others. When college seniors and recent grads obtain a “good” job, it means that the job: - Holds great interest for the student - Has opportunities to learn and grow - Has opportunities for advancement - Has career potential - Pays a salary that enables...
Health Alert: Should You Ban Handshakes in Your Office?
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2015
With Ebola and myriad other diseases in the news and flu season just about to kick off, some people are calling for a ban on the handshake. Is that the right move for your business? 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 g...
How I went from Cookies to Corporate
by Connie Pheiff - Jun, 2015
On June 30, 2006 at 4:02 pm I was told I would no longer be the CEO of Girl Scouts. I expected to be the leader of the number one leadership program for women well into my retirement years. Unfortunately that did not happen. I had no idea losing a position I was most passionate about would change my life forever. The following three months brought plenty of margaritas and depression. Although I was CEO of a national organi...
How to Choose the Right Path to Success
by Michelle Kerrigan - Jun, 2015
How to Choose the Right Path to Success Life is filled with change. It is also filled with choice. Success is largely based on the choices we make when facing change. Many of the changes we face are not welcome and quite challenging, such as getting laid off; going through a restructuring; and doing more with less at work. And, many of us believe that if we worry enough, we can control the outcome. Well, we can’t. No o...
Tactics for Reinvigorating a Stale Culture
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2015
Even the best company cultures can get old and stale. Keep your culture fresh, and your employees engaged, with these strategies. In an earlier article, I discussed how to build a culture of innovation. Some of the tips included avoiding micromanagement, keeping stress level to a minimum, and encouraging your people to take risks. These methods can definitely re-energize a stale culture, but there are other avenues you mi...
5 No-fail Ways to Finally Start Your Next Big Project
by Melody Wilding - Jun, 2015
If you’re like me, you have a growing to-do list filled with big ideas to accomplish. Yet day after day, life gets in the way and our passion project falls by the wayside. We make excuses like “I’ll do it tomorrow” or “I’m not in the mindset right now”, waiting for the perfect moment of inspiration to suddenly strike. The funny thing is that “perfect moment” doesn’t actually exist. Maybe you don’t know how to start....
3 Ways to Shake Up Your Mentoring Program for Better Results
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2015
Remember that old song we learned as kids, "Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other's gold?" It's a good reminder for the workplace. As individuals, we benefit from having a professional network comprised of both longtime connections and new workplace relationships. If you primarily hang out with the "old guard" in your organization or industry, you risk missing out on fresh perspectives. If you...
Build a Strong Reputation – Communicate Minor Achievements
by Alexandra Levit - May, 2015
Build a strong reputation by making the most of minor achievements. In my seminars, I am fond of discussing the importance of perception. You could be the smartest, most talented individual your organization has ever hired, but if people don’t like you or value what you have to offer, you’re dead in the water. Fortunately, it is relatively easy to project a positive image. When you meet people in person, make sure you...
Don’t Be a Job Search “Idiot”!
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2015
If you’ve never made any dumb or slightly silly mistakes in a job search, congratulations! On the other hand, an occasional misstep is probably not the kiss of death unless it’s seriously stupid. Look at it this way, though: If you don’t put your best foot forward when you’re planning and conducting a job search, why should a potential employer assume that you won’t do something equally bad as an employee? To those employe...
The Non-Techno-Geek’s Ultimate Guide to Using #HashTags In Your Job Search
by Michelle Dumas - May, 2015
#HashTags? Seriously? Why should I care? I hear the objections starting to run through your head already. They ran through mine too. In fact, the truth is that despite the fact that I run an online business, until recently I had only the most rudimentary knowledge of what a hashtag was. In the expectation that I am not the most naive non-techno-geek out there, and many of my readers may feel the same way, here is how...
