Outgrown Your Britches? Check With Your Tailor. Advancing Your Career in Good Style
by Dawn Lennon - Jun, 2010
Remember “The Emperor’s New Clothes” story by Hans Christian Andersen? Two weavers promise to make the Emperor a suit of clothes invisible to people unfit or incompetent for their positions. The Emperor slips into his new outfit and while parading before his subjects, a child yells out, “He isn’t wearing anything at all!” It’s a classic story of being afraid to confront the truth, even when it makes us look stupid or compro...

by Andy Robinson - Jun, 2010
Business As Usual so far in 2010? In the day-to-day, week-to-week conduct of our work, business life and personal life, we do the things we need to do to accomplish our job and get things done. We exercise our talents to get these things done; we utilize our key skills to do those things as well as we can. Six months go by, a year goes by, lots of work is done, lots of things get done. but...have WE gotten better?... or a...
Are You a Resistor?
by Harry Urschel - Jun, 2010
Over the past 5 years, having taught over 20 – 8 week classes on job transition skills, I’ve consistently seen many people resist applying the ideas and techniques I talk about. Although they nod in agreement in class, they rarely, if ever, change any of their activities throughout the week. They continue doing the same things they’ve always done and expect different results (isn’t that a definition of insanity?). Why do...
Don’t Go it Alone, Prosper with Partners - Five Tips
by Bernadette Boas - Jun, 2010
I just returned from an early morning partner referral meeting; and when I got back to my desk (currently a library table/chair) I looked over the notes I took, the thank you’s and leads that I was given or provided and I was so appreciative of having that group of people around me - supporting, motivating, counseling, and challenging me. Though I am a solopreneur myself with a part time contract assistant, my own business...

Beware of “Bring Me Another Rock” Managers! Clarify Direction. Provoke Decisions.
by Dawn Lennon - Jun, 2010
They make us think we’re the problem. We produce work our managers assign and they throw it back. “Revise this,” they say. “What am I missing?” we ask. “It doesn’t quite address the issues,” they answer. “When it’s right, I’ll know it.” We go back to our desks deflated, believing that somehow we’re just not grasping things. We still don’t have a clear idea of how to “fix” anything. We start to worry that our caree...

The Beauty With The Briefcase
by Amanda Guralski - Jun, 2010
Back when I was in college, I fully subscribed to the philosophy of one Ani DiFranco, patron saint of angst-filled young women. One of her songs, “32 Flavors”, rang profoundly true for me, especially this verse: God help you if you are an ugly girl/’Course too pretty is also your doom/’Cause everyone harbors a secret resentment/for the prettiest girl in the room... Isn’t that the truth? As women, we just can’t win. If we...

Career Stock Raising
by Nan S. Russell - Jun, 2010
All requests are not equal; all customers or clients are not equal; all to-do-list tasks are not equal; all work responsibilities are not equal. You can do fifty things today and get little, if any, return on your personal investment for having done them. Or you can do one or two things which have a large return. You possess personal capital. It's comprised of your time, effort, knowledge and skills. Investing that capital...
