  Forgotten Forms of First Impressions
by Valerie Sokolosky - Aug, 2011
A crucial component of your professional image is your first impression. Your word choice, your tone, your appearance and your body language communicate a particular message to the person that you are meeting. Your entire relationship is built on this first interaction. Even if we don’t do a good job of preparing for this first meeting, most of us know that first impressions matter. We remember the offhanded comment said by...
 
  One Simple Tip to Immediately Improve Your Professional Communication
by Lindsey Pollak - Jul, 2011
Be concise. Yep, that’s it. For many years I’ve taught professional writing seminars in addition to my career speeches and workshops. In these programs, “Be concise” is the advice I find myself dispensing more than any other. Even in our world of 140-charater tweets, 160-character texts and txt msg spk, most people make the mistake of talking and writing way more than is necessary. Here are some reasons why concise...
 
  Executive Wisdom - The 8 Traps of High Achievers
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Jul, 2011
I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients – the president of a professional services firm. We talked about how he was driven to achieve his goals and addicted to perfection. My executive coaching client and I discussed how it is more important to focus on success and fulfillment than perfection. I am coaching my client to overcome the eight traps of high achievers, and focus mor...
 
  Top 10 Tweets... Untwisted
by Kimberly Schneiderman - Jul, 2011
Twitter is a great tool for coaches like me. I can give off the cuff bits of advice and insight in just a few seconds to all my followers on Twitter, fans on Facebook, and contacts on LinkedIn. As a general rule, I tweet about 3 times per day Monday through Thursday. Sometimes you’ll even see a tweet on a Friday or a Saturday if I come across something really good. The only problem is, well, I’m limited in space and someti...
 
  How are you asking for help?
by Dawn Bugni - Jul, 2011
I received the following via email a few Fridays ago: “Good Afternoon, I am currently unemployed and for the past few months I have been trying to present better ways to get my resume points of view across to recruiters. I have been trying to co-mingle value based information and actual job duties that I have done. When I do that it seems to create sort of a “laundry list” of my duties and I am trying to stay away from t...

Yesterday, I shared an email from a job seeker and offered some suggestions how he (you) can improve on responses to requests for assistance.

  The #1 Way to Be a Great Employee
by Lindsey Pollak - Jul, 2011
In one of the first jobs of my career, I had a very hands-on, micromanaging boss. She frequently double- and triple-checked that I had completed even the smallest tasks. Not surprisingly, it kind of drove me crazy. Looking back, though, I consider that job to be one of my best learning experiences in professionalism, attention to detail and—most importantly—the art of “managing up.” When people talk about management, the...
 
  If You’re Not Going to be Genuine, Don’t Bother
by Louise Fletcher - Jul, 2011
Not long ago, I was invited to join a brand new business social networking site. Because I like the person who sent the invite, I clicked ‘yes’ and signed up. But having looked around, I decided it was much too early stage to spend time on. For the last 3 days, I’ve received an email from the site founder. The first one thanked me for signing up and made reference to the fact I’m a resume writer. I thought that was a nice t...
 
  Grumbling About Work? Get Over It!
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2011
It’s become a pastime, a bit of on-the-job sport. Grumbling starts out innocently but can become all-consuming, taking on many forms like: - Harping about the boss’s annoying habits - Whining about boring work - Complaining about your cubicle location - Obsessing over how long it might take to get promoted The more we grumble, the more we grumble. It’s not a cure for anything, but a perpetuator. Who’s...
