5 Signs You're Too Emotionally Invested in Your Job
by Melody Wilding - Jun, 2015
For many of us, career ranks as a top priority in our lives. We care about our jobs deeply, pushing ourselves to continually work harder to ascend to higher levels of success. We care so much about our work that it becomes ingrained in our identity and self-image. However, this work-first mentality has its downsides. Those of us who pride ourselves on being career-oriented can get so wrapped up and emotionally invested in...
How to Gain a Workplace Sponsor
by Terri Tierney Clark - Jun, 2015
One of the greatest determinants of success for ambitious middle level managers is the existence of a sponsor. Sponsorship, unlike mentorship, is a two-way street in which protégés and sponsors depend on one other to help each of their careers. A protégé offers her sponsor exceptional work product, loyalty, and a unique view of team and company dynamics; she can help him fulfill his goals and build his legacy. A sponsor provid...
The Corporate Dating Rule
by Michelle Kerrigan - Jun, 2015
So, you thought this would be about love in the workplace? Not really, except that the happy-ever-after in your career depends only on one relationship: the one you have with yourself. You need to play the field in your career, and not tie yourself—or your confidence--to one title or company. Case in point: I recently spoke with a college graduate who is beginning her job search. She wants to get a job in a prime-tim...
Begin The Mentoring Process By Knowing Yourself
by Stacey Lane - Jun, 2015
We know from ecology that a tree planted in a clearing of an old forest will be stronger than one planted in an open field. This is because the roots of the new tree are able to follow the pathways created by former trees and embed themselves more deeply. Over time, the roots of trees graft themselves together forming a system underground. The older trees help the younger ones mature and become stronger. The same principle hol...
Is Your Brand the Ultimate Narcissism?
by Joshua Waldman - Jun, 2015
My grandmother, who is 86 this year, always told me, “humility was for people who could afford it” and when I was 10, I “couldn’t afford it.” She wanted me to be more confident, brag a little bit. I’m sure she was just a proud grandma, and I love her for it. Now, and only after years of corporate experience, do I finally understand what she meant. Of the many cold hard facts of the work-world, one of them is, “You have...
Driving Our Careers: Why we can’t wait for employers to take the wheel
by Sara Canaday - Jun, 2015
As I travel across the country speaking to management groups and meeting with operations leaders, I am consistently seeing a common problem. While companies fully recognize that reaching their goals and being successful is dependent on quality leadership, the vast majority of them struggle to make that a priority. They simply don’t have the time, energy and budget required to grow and develop their leaders in a meaningful way....
Three Steps to Overcoming the Impostor Syndrome
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2015
Nine times out of ten our clients tell us they are their own biggest obstacles when it comes to making a career change, and taking the necessary risks to seek out and secure the job of their dreams. One of the obstacles we find they often face, in believing they deserve or are qualified for their dream job, is a phenomenon known as the Impostor Syndrome. To understand how to overcome this syndrome, let’s take a closer look at...
What To Do When Your Mentor Leaves The Company
by Terri Tierney Clark - Jun, 2015
There’s nothing better than having a mentor at work—someone to offer you guidance in your career, give you advice on your day-to-day responsibilities, and help you succeed within the organization. So when that person leaves? Well, it can be tough. Not only did you likely just lose your biggest advocate, you may also have just lost your closest friend at the office. The good news is, if you approach the transition correctly...
Back to the ‘Kids’ Table’: Should Millennials Have Their Own Space?
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2015
Remember being stuck at the kids’ table at family gatherings? In some ways, it was fun to be able to kick back with the cousins and avoid probing questions from relatives you barely knew about whether you had a boyfriend or what “hooking up” meant. (Or maybe that was just my family…) But, in a way, you also felt as though you were being segregated just for being a kid. Like you didn’t have anything to add to the grownup co...
Health Alert: Should You Ban Handshakes in Your Office?
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2015
With Ebola and myriad other diseases in the news and flu season just about to kick off, some people are calling for a ban on the handshake. Is that the right move for your business? The first piece of business advice I was given that stuck was to greet a new person with a firm, enthusiastic handshake. Since that day 16 years ago when my boss said my shake had to be “more confident,” I've been telling countless college g...
