When will your Ah-Ha! moment be?
by Hallie Crawford - Sep, 2011
I was had a career coaching call with my client Margaret a few weeks ago. When she got on the call she was on top of the moon! She had just conducted an informational interview with someone who owned his own law firm, which was one of the career paths she had been considering. The information she got from him, and what she learned validated her decision to move forward. He also gave her a lot of good things to consider in orde...
HOW DOES THAT WORK?
by Nan S. Russell - Sep, 2011
How would you respond to this question: "Are you one of the top 10% of performers in your company?" This question posed in a Business Week survey found that overall 90% of surveyed executives, middle managers, and employees from both large and small companies thought they were, indeed, in the top 10% of performers. I'm not a math major, but how does that work exactly? In my twenty years in management that wasn't my experien...
Managing Your Internal PR
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Sep, 2011
It’s important to manage your own PR within your organization. Consider conducting a quarterly review of the real players that influence your career. If you don’t have a list of those players, take a few minutes to generate one. Then every three months review this list which will most likely include your bosses, peers, subordinates and clients. “Bosses” are those people at a higher level who can influence your career, i.e., yo...

3 Simple Ways to Get More Feedback
by Lindsey Pollak - Aug, 2011
When I run training programs for companies on how to better manage their Generation Y talent, there is a certain complaint I hear over and over again: This generation wants too much feedback! According to many managers, Gen Y employees want feedback “on-demand”—they want to know how they’re doing after virtually every meeting, presentation, report, project or any other demonstration of their skills. Most Gen Ys don’t...
It takes more than a well branded resume to land a great position
by Anne-Marie Ditta - Aug, 2011
You have a great resume, know and can speak about your professional brand, network regularly…but nothing’s happening. Could your smile – or lack of – be getting in the way? During my former career as an account executive I realized people needed to like me before they could sign an agreement with me. So I made a conscious decision to let them know me. I took the time to ask about their business, what was happening with thei...

My executive coaching client and I discussed how both knowledge and experience have influenced his ability to make wise decisions. I am coaching my client to reach deep within and tap into his wisdom and creativity. "A leader takes...
Do I Ever Think About You if We Aren’t Connected Online?
by Barbara Safani - Aug, 2011
My three closest friends don’t participate in any form of social or business networking. You’ll never find a business profile, status update, family photo, or even a poke from any of them on any online networking platform. While I ponder a “social media intervention” I continue to reach out to my friends on their terms which includes email and phone contact and an annual snail mail holiday card. I have to admit, it’s a lot mor...
