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...

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...

“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.

How to Harness the Power of Culture
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - May, 2011
I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients - a senior executive in a professional services firm. We discussed how the right culture needed to be designed to create a desired future state. My client’s firm is led by a leadership team that doesn’t like marketing and even more so sales, and is resistant to change. My client and I further discussed how the culture that got them t...

The trick is to get paid while you’re doing the failing and to use the experience to gain skills that will be useful later. I failed at my first career in banking. I failed...

Job interviews are the beginning. It’s the moment when we begin our relationship with a future boss. We tend to look at the hiring process like a game show. We’re picked as contestants, and if we answer the questions correctly, we win the prize. The game show winner takes his/her winnings and goes home.
