When You Don’t Know, Find Someone Who Does—Like Jack Nadel
by Dawn Lennon - Apr, 2011
Success is the prize. Seeking it gets us to make the effort. Sadly, our efforts don’t always deliver the success we’re after. We look around and wonder what we’re doing wrong. Now it’s time talk to someone who’s been through it all. Enter Jack Nadel. At this writing, Nadel is in his late 80s. He spent 65 years in business, primarily in product sales, as founder of Jack Nadel International. After serving as a decor...
10 Career Risks of the Sleep-Deprived. You?
by Dawn Lennon - Apr, 2011
Sleep is for wimps. Do some people make you feel that way? Time to refute! We’ve become a tired workforce, exhausted even. We work long hours, stay up late for household chores/family time and/or to socialize with friends. When we lay down to sleep, we often can’t or the quality is poor. Sleep matters. Sometimes we treat sleep like it’s an accessory, not a necessity, to our success. Be...
New Employees Can Mean Trouble | Managing Team Chemistry
by Dawn Lennon - Apr, 2011
A filled vacancy starts with optimism. The boss is high on what the new employee can add to the team. Existing employees are relieved they didn’t have to absorb more work. Bosses usually start with an announcement before the person shows up. Employees hear about the new hire’s capabilities and experiences. They often hear high praise for how s/he will strengthen the team. Enough already! New employees mean change....

Scanning USA Today the other day I spotted the article I was waiting for a savvy entertainment reporter to write. A lot of fans of American Idol have noted the chemistry between the three judges this year is jammin’. Most people wondered if the show would survive without Simon Cowell. Au contraire! Newcomers Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and veteran Randy Jackson have made it hipper, more interesting and fun. I thought I wo...
Finding Balance - Turn Off Your Smart Phone
by Hallie Crawford - Apr, 2011
I read a great article in Newsweek recently about how information overload is paralyzing our ability to make good decisions. It reminded me of a great piece of advice I am always telling my clients about defining their career path. I wanted to share it with you because it's a critical step in identifying your ideal career and finding life balance. Finding your career direction is a process that takes time and effort and a lot...
Celebrating Kindness Day – How to help a job seeker
by Miriam Salpeter - Apr, 2011
Today, my colleague Phyllis Mufson invited me to participate in “Kindness Day.” Via her blog, she suggests perpetrating kindness via Twitter by doing and tweeting acts of kindness, using the hashtag (search tag) #Kindness. Writing about job search and interacting regularly with job seekers, I thought it made sense to also contribute a brief blog with tips about how to be kind to job seekers. It’s very easy to make half-hear...
A Strategy for Work/Life Balance
by Thomas J. Denham - Apr, 2011
We have more to do now in our personal and professional lives than ever before. We are ruled by haste and urgency; we race from one thing to the next. The result: we feel fragmented and often depressed. There is so much mental clutter in our minds that it is sometimes hard to even start. Achieving balance comes from regularly answering a series of questions. Here is my ten step plan: 1. Become Aware - The very first s...
SETTING BOUNDARIES: THE PSYCHOLOGICAL CONTRACT
by Wendy Adams - Apr, 2011
How successful do you want to be? If you prescribe as many do, to the Psychological Contract, you expect to at the very least feel as if you are supported in your success on the job. Whenever an employee and employer enter into a relationship, there are assumptions that they share the same or similar beliefs around the arrangement. Basic needs for success on the job must be met through the provision of resources. These re...

It was a dimly lit restaurant. Still she was dressed in pink, and while I admit it's hard to tell the gender babies, clothing color is a reliable clue. So, it surprised me when the waitress began playing with my granddaughter, asking "How old is he?" Twenty minutes later, that same waitress served our dinners into my daughter-in-law's lap, spilling the contents of her tray as she approached the table. We made light of the o...
Universally Transferrable Skills For Career Changers
by Cathy Eng - Mar, 2011
I rarely go a week without hearing from a client who is changing industries, fields, or general direction. The biggest problem that they’re running into is what they perceive to be a lack of transferrable skills. They are under the impression that there is a huge barrier that keeps field experts in and everyone else out, but there are several universal skills that - in well written resumes - successfully portray the candidate...
