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...
Work Life Balance ~ The Little Things That Help You Stay Up!
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. Matter of fact, if you stiffen up and don’t allow yourself the tiny motions it takes to constantly maintain balance, you’ll fall right over. Try it. I’ll wait. Balance in life is the same way. 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...
Establishing and Maintaining Leader Behavior
by Ford R. Myers - Feb, 2010
Are you a leader? A leader generates his or her own opportunities. Leaders don’t whine and complain about the lack of opportunities to develop their careers. They CREATE opportunities – regardless of their current situation, regardless of their current boss, regardless of obstacles that may seem to stand in the way of developing their full potential. The following information is adapted from The 7 Hidden Reasons Employee...
Seven Truths of Career Success
by Ford R. Myers - Feb, 2010
1. The most qualified candidate does not necessarily get the job offer. Many times, candidates with lesser qualifications get job offers simply because they’ve prepared and presented themselves in a more compelling way. They “package” themselves better, with an outstanding portfolio of career documents and oral presentation skills. The winning candidate is the one who knows how to tie his or her achievements, strengths and...

by Dawn Lennon - Feb, 2010
Success is out there—somewhere. We watch others achieve it, but not us. They don’t seem any smarter than we are. So what’s the trick? We assume the answer’s in all those how-to books, so we read them. We go to presentations by celebrated experts, follow bloggers, and invest in webinars. These are all good things to do, but... No one can tell you how to get the success you want. Why? They aren’t you! We’re all in the s...

In Challenging Times, No More “Inner Child”: Boldly Bring Your Inner Chutzpah
by Mark Gorkin - Feb, 2010
Over lunch, my agent posed a provocative challenge: “Write an article on chutzpah.” He believes the timing is right. In this difficult economy and uncertain times it’s certainly tempting to withdraw into a shell. But a better strategy might be a contrary one, throwing off the shell and putting yourself out there. One “chutzpah” source involves productively tapping into what I call the “RAGE” in “Out-RAGE-ous.” (And these...
Gifts vs. Favors: Why One is POWER & Other is POISON to Your Career
by J.T. O'Donnell - Feb, 2010
I read a post by Seth Godin recently that discussed the power of a gift. Something struck me immediately: People who struggle to find professional satisfaction (a.k.a. a job they are happy with) are often guilty of doing favors instead of giving gifts.
