There's Always A Reason Not To Do Something In Your Career
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Feb, 2010
As a career coach, people are always talking to me about their careers. We discuss their dreams, wishes, and future plans. But when I ask some of these people how they will implement their plan, their reasons for not moving forward begin to flow. Their reasons vary. Some people tell me they are too old. Some are too young. Some have the wrong education or not enough. Some have too much experience, while others don't have a...

Google the name of your favorite celebrity, visit their website and you’ll probably find a bio with his or her accomplishments, career beginnings, areas of expertise and much more. Well, you don’t have to be famous to sell yourself like a celebrity. The beauty of a bio is that it helps you tell your story in a way that sells you well. 1. It’s like dating – First I...
Three Ways to Tame Your Email (and get back in the zone)
by Rebecca Ryan - Feb, 2010
Since so much email is poorly contructed, it becomes our job as recipients to distill the meaning of the email. (Am I the only person who’s annoyed that anyone can send me an email, and then it’s my job to figure out what the hell they want?) Email’s not going away, so we may as well learn to domesticate it, so that it purrs like a kitten in our lap. Here are three ideas to help you tame your interoffice email. 1. Use...
Winning Support for Your Ideas
by Suzanne Bates - Feb, 2010
The other day I was working with a client who is about to roll out a two year strategy for her functional area in the business. She and her team have worked for six months to put together a beautiful plan. It’s incredible -on paper. The program design considers the most current thinking and research in the field. It will set a new course for the company and make them the envy of their competitors. And, if they roll it out...
Three Keys to Time Management: Prioritize, Decide, Set Boundaries
by Tai Goodwin - Feb, 2010
How often have you said, “If I only had more time, ” or, “I wish there were more hours in the day.” We say that often intending to imply that if we only had more time then we would get the rest we need or slow down to a more normal pace. But chances are that if we did have more hours in the day, we would immediately fill them up with more things to do instead of creating the space we need to take a much needed break. We don...
How About A Heads Up?
by Nan S. Russell - Feb, 2010
It didn't take long while on safari in Botswana, to begin to recognize the animal calls heralding a predator roaming in the area. What intrigued me was the pass-along path those calls took, from animal group to animal group. The shrieks of baboons, the trumpeting of elephants, the screams of francolins, the cries of impalas were picked up by adjacent animals and sent out for as long as the threat remained. In that predator-...
Don't Be Mr. or Ms. Negative
by Debra Wheatman - Feb, 2010
You have met them; you have been annoyed by them; you may have suffered because of them. They are the folks that always find problems; they tell you why it won't work; they always have an excuse for something that hasn't even happened yet and might never happen at all. These folks just bring down the energy of the room when they walk in the door. • They complain about the free food and drinks the company or coworkers pro...

by Keri Coffman-Thiede - Feb, 2010
Try this...stand on one foot. Go ahead – I’ll wait. Now notice what that’s like. Balance is not a stagnant action.

It’s about doing the little things that help you stay up that influence how “on or off” balance you feel. Balan...

Your 5-Step Method for Defining Job Satisfaction
by Rob Taub - Feb, 2010
The question was asked: How do I pick my major if I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up? Answer: Start with the end in mind. As with writing a speech, you determine what your objective is and what it is you hope to instill in your audience, and only THEN do you begin to write your speech. Make sense? Same with job searching and too, picking a major, internships, related clubs and activities, and more: You begin with...
