How People Experience Work Shapes Your Organization’s Culture
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - May, 2011
I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients - a senior vice president in a Silicon Valley high tech company. We discussed how people experienced work at his company. My client’s company is led by a leadership team where several members lack emotional intelligence and social intelligence. My executive client and I further discussed how the culture that got them to where they are wo...
Career Advice: Find The Action
by Hallie Crawford - May, 2011
I’ve been writing about this Wall Street Journal article, written by Dilbert, creator Scott Adams, How to Get a Real Education, for the past few weeks because it’s rich with good career advice. The last excerpt that I really liked is “Find the action.” In my senior year of college I asked my adviser how I should pursue my goal of being a banker. He told me to figure out where the most innovation in banking was happening and...
Consciously Choose Better Work-Life Balance
by Heather Mundell - May, 2011
What kind of balance do you want to strike between your professional and your personal life? Harvard business blogger Ron Ashkenas wrote an article in December in the Harvard Business Review that a key to minimizing regret regarding your work-life balance (or lack thereof) is to consciously choose the tradeoffs you're willing to make to achieve personal and professional success. Absent that, we're likely over the years t...
Invaluable Resources for Job Search Success
by Heather Mundell - May, 2011
Embarking on a job search is a lot like heading out on a backpacking trip. Sure, you could show up at the trailhead with only a liter of water, a granola bar and an indomitable spirit. But come the afternoon, after the biting flies have found you and your granola bar is a distant memory, your energy starts to flag. By nightfall, as the cold sets in and you realize you're lost, you know it's time to turn back. Just like a ba...
MAKE THAT NET-WORK
by Wendy Adams - May, 2011
The old adage of its not what you know, but who you know will never go out of style. We see it daily represented in almost anything publically displayed in the media. Now that media is currently most strongly held in the hands of the people, there is no shortage of proof that power is grown by the more people you know; the greater the access you have to these people and by the diversity of people you know. We are expanding...
by Suzanne Bates - May, 2011
Many years ago as a young, single professional, I got this idea that I should put down roots. Although I was a carpet bagging television reporter moving from city to city every two or three years, I found a condo in Tampa that I loved and couldn’t afford. Though I was likely to leave town before a year or two was out, I really wanted to buy it. My dad happened to be coming for a visit so I took him to see the place. As we st...
Getting Started on LinkedIn: Advice for Recent Grads
by Lindsey Pollak - May, 2011
In honor of LinkedIn’s IPO on the New York Stock Exchange yesterday, I thought it would be a good time to share some reminders about why the site is valuable to young professionals and how to use it effectively. As the largest and most vibrant professional social network in the world (100 million members in over 200 countries and counting), LinkedIn provides a wealth of opportunities for personal branding, networking and fi...
THE RISE OF CORPORATE GLOBAL AND DECLINE OF CORPORATE AMERICA
by Yvonne Brown - May, 2011
As a child in Jamaica I grew up in a time when coming to America was the ultimate dream. People from all over the world coveted the American lifestyle with its manicured lawns, beautiful homes, and happy healthy children playing in the yard or riding their bikes in the neighborhood. Now all of that has changed and many Americans are moving to foreign lands just to find work, some are struggling to make a living,and feed th...
How Is Your Customer Service?
by Christine Hassler - May, 2011
“Here is a simple but powerful rule – always give people more than what they expect to get.” – Nelson Boswell This week I designated a day to catch up on my errands and to-do list which involved interacting with various businesses. I was aware of how pleasurable my interaction with each business was based on the level of customer service I received. On several occasions I encountered unhelpful, unfriendly or apathetic ind...
Beware of the Overshare
by Alexandra Levit - May, 2011
I’ve noticed a workplace trend lately – the overshare. It seems that people work so much that they consider colleagues like close friends or family members. And when they’re diagnosed with a long-term condition with an acronym like PSTD or ADHD or become pregnant (for example) it’s the most natural thing in the world to tell officemates immediately. My advice is to think twice about this. Don’t get me wrong – I’m sure yo...
