What do you want to do?
by Miriam Salpeter - Jan, 2012
What do you want to do when __________? Fill in the blank. The question is typical for many life stages. We remember being asked, “What do you want to do when you grow up?” when we were younger – too young to really know what to say. Admit it — was “superhero” on your list? Certainly, it’s a valuable question to consider after high school and upon graduating from college. It makes sense for anyone laid off of a job to re-visit...
Inside the Mind at Work – What Really Motivates Us?
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Dec, 2011
Question for Discussion – How important is managing for progress? The topics of performance evaluations and feedback come up quite often in my executive coaching sessions. It’s human nature that people want to know where they stand. I often suggest to my coaching clients that in-the-moment feedback based on progress helps motivate people. It can also help avoid those tense performance evaluation meetings where people ca...

by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2011
Struggling to find a job in your industry? Don’t discount the benefit of volunteering.

This really helps fill gaps in your resume and allows you to network. Two key benefits of volunteering: Networking – While you are volunteering you are able t...
Create an Executive Brand by Telling Your Story
by Louise Garver - Dec, 2011
Think of Coca Cola. Do you have a picture of a can of Coca Cola clearly in your mind? What do you see? Red and white/silver aluminum can with distinctive lettering. Now picture a glass of coke, just an ordinary glass with a dark colored beverage inside. It could be Coke, but it could also be Pepsi; it could even be root beer. If the ‘resume’ of Coca Cola just talked about a carbonated soft drink in general terms, and didn’t re...
7 Techniques for Work/Life Balance
by Thomas J. Denham - Dec, 2011
Maintaining work/life balance is the hardest thing to accomplish in adulthood. Many people today are too busy making a living that they don’t have time to make a life. Don’t expect to continue down the same path and get any significant changes in your life. Where you go with your work/life balance should be by choice not chance.

Desperate for your dream job? – Know when to stop drilling
by Hallie Crawford - Dec, 2011
My career coaching clients tell me all the time, they want to define their passion and define it as specifically as possible so they can then go out there and find the right job. This idea makes sense right? We all want to know what our dream job is. I help them drill down as far as possible in order to figure this out, but what I’ve found over the years of doing this as a career coach is that you also need to know when to sto...

Speaking to the graduating class last year at Princeton University, Amazon.com Founder Jeff Bezos shared a story about a long drive in Texas with his grandparents. He was ten years old at the time.
