Will You Settle For What You Think You Deserve?
by Bob Roth - Sep, 2014
Many college students can recite a litany of reasons for why their performance is relatively average when it comes to college and career endeavors. They talk about their lack of resources, their family history and the disadvantages they have faced. Because these students focus on personal problems, shortcomings and failures, they are trapped in the mind set of someone who is likely to underperform. For most students,...
Entry, Mastery, and Disengagement: Where Are You in the Career Cycle
by Carole Kanchier - Sep, 2014
Do you feel moody, apprehensive, unhappy? Are you wondering what to do with your life? You know that something’s missing, but you can’t put your finger on it. My research on occupational change, described in "Questers Dare to Change Your Job and Life," suggest that growing adults experience cycles of discontent every five to ten years with the average cycle occurring every 7.5 years. These periods of dissatisfaction may...
Communicate with Power: Master the Unconscious
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Sep, 2014
Most communication is unconscious. You may think you’re delivering clear and consistent messages based on your words, but unconscious nonverbal behaviors are key to communicating with power. Startling advances in brain science have made it possible for us to gather and test evidence as we uncover the unconscious mind’s amazing strengths. While our conscious brains can handle some 40 bits of information per second, the unc...
Confidence Part II – Change Your Body, Change Your Mind
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Aug, 2014
You may recall the scenes in The Sound of Music where Julie Andrews, as Maria, is trying to summon her confidence as she prepares to interview for the governess post with the Von Trapp Family. I love Maria’s feisty, go-get-em attitude. She’s terrified, but she holds her fear at bay by dancing down the road taking big steps and making big, bold gestures – waving her guitar and satchel in the air as she sings “I have confiden...
What Does Labor Day Mean to You?
by Carole Kanchier - Aug, 2014
What do enjoy doing on Labor Day? What does Labor Day mean to you? Labor Day is so much a part of our culture that we rarely pause to consider its purpose and meaning. Labor Day is often more associated with fairs and a long weekend, than its original meaning – affirmation of the dignity and worth of workers. Labor Day began in Canada in 1872, when the Toronto Trades Assembly organised the first significant workers' dem...
How My “Potential” Landed Me a Job
by Corinna Klawon - Aug, 2014
A few years ago I found myself bidding on a job that I thought was quite far out of reach. I was going for a Marketing Communications job that required strong verbal and written communication skills as well as the ability to be detail-oriented, read proofs and overall have a good sense of English grammar. On the other side, there was me…just finishing up my BS in Marketing and Management: young, inexperienced, and above all a...
Are You a Time Micromanager or a Time Strategist?
by Jessica Stasiw - Aug, 2014
The day starts when you step foot into your office building, and it ends when you put your computer to sleep around the 5 o’clock hour. For some, the eight hour work day isn’t enough, and for others it’s way too much. So, here’s the question you need to ask yourself…do you micromanage your time to stay busy, or do strategically play out your tasks and projects to be more productive? There’s a subtle difference here. Being a...
Why I Quit My Toxic Law Job to Teach Yoga
by Katie Chamberlain Kritikos - Aug, 2014
Young and Idealistic: All I Really Want to Do Is Drink Beer At my first yoga class in my high school library in 2002, I discovered yoga as a way to both exercise and relax. Yoga then accompanied me through college in South Carolina and Alabama, graduate school in Illinois and New York City, and law practice in rural Illinois and Chicago. Through the challenges (divorce, autoimmune disease) and triumphs (launching a law...
Confidence on Tap – Part I
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Aug, 2014
As a career consultant, I’ve coached many clients who’ve suffered from a debilitating lack of confidence, and my best advice – born from experience – is to take action. Moving through my own career transition from opera singer to university director, and, additionally, to author, speaker and coach, has tested my confidence mettle, to say the least, over the years. I went from high confidence – singing on stages all over...
Act Like A Business Owner To Advance Your Career
by Andy Robinson - Aug, 2014
Whether you work for a global corporation, a small business, or for yourself, it is absolutely essential you THINK and ACT like an “owner” if you want to advance your career. You need to “own” your job, own your role as a leader or manager, own your roles and responsibilities – put yourself in the shoes of a business owner, and think and behave as any owner would do. This is not new career advice; many of us have heard this...
