Winning at Working: Blurred Lines Require New Skills
by Nan S. Russell - Feb, 2015
Instead of an early start, with time to read the news, check key messages, and write uninterruptedly for a pending project, I spent it down a rabbit hole. What I expected was a five or ten minute interruption to answer a client’s email, marked with one of those urgent exclamation points, but it took me over an hour. Before I could even send the requested information, I got an email telling me, in essence, “never mind,” the dir...

by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Feb, 2015
It’s the time of year for cards with red hearts, chocolates, and flowers as Valentine’s Day approaches. It causes anxiety for some who are seeking affection and bliss for others who are celebrating their love with someone special. This Valentine’s Day I encourage you to see it through a different lens. By all means celebrate your beloved but designate time to honor yourself as well on the holiday when we focus on love. When...

You may think you’re a good boss, but a recent survey reports 9 out of 10 managers are providing insufficient oversight—a problem that consultant Bruce Tulgan calls the “under-management epidemic.” Ten years ago, research from Rainmaker Thinking, Inc., confirmed an epidemic of workplace under-management.

Is Your Fear Of Changing Jobs On This List?
by Stacey Lane - Feb, 2015
Let’s talk about the other F word. Fear. As you can probably imagine, there are days when I need a Teflon suit to deflect my clients’ fears. Even the most self-aware clients have moments of sheer panic. Fear shows up. It’s just part of careers. It’s that simple. On good days, I’m a curious and non-attached observer of fear. On bad days, I get sucked into the fear vortex and find myself obsessing about my own career success...
Being Busy Is Making You Sick: How to Recover as an Office Martyr
by Melody Wilding - Feb, 2015
Last week, I shared the concept of “office martyrdom” and explained why it’s an easy trap to fall into yet potentially very destructive. The office martyr considers themselves a victim, taking on extra work, staying late at the office, and giving nearly everything for their career, all the while complaining about the extra burden they supposedly have to bear. This can quickly turn into a vicious cycle of victimhood and alie...

by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Feb, 2015

Mix your emotions together and you come up with a lethal cocktail. “There are four emotions sure to undermine our goals: fear, uncertainty, doubt, and shame.” ~Michael Hyatt Seasons of life change often. Each season of life brings new events. Such as job change, divorce, sickness, or something else. Our emotions a...
Are You a Career Perfectionist? Part I
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Jan, 2015
In my coaching practice as well as in my travels for speaking engagements, I regularly meet women who are terrified of change. They’re afraid to change careers, jobs, or even pursue a promotion for fear of making the wrong move or not measuring up. Many women are standing in the way of their own success, and the roots of these self-inflicted roadblocks can often be traced to perfectionism. In their book, The Confidence Code...
6 Must Read Books to Survive Your Quarter-Life Crisis
by Melody Wilding - Jan, 2015
In between 10-hour workdays at a low-paying, soul-sucking job, have you ever come up for air and bemoaned, “This is not what my 20’s we’re supposed to be like.” Being a twenty-something woman today can feel like a roller coaster at times: an up and down, overwhelming adventure in finding your dream job, navigating the dating scene, and attempting to maintain friendships in the face of cross-country moves, marriages, an...
