Finding Yourself in Your Work or Losing Yourself in It? | Pursuing Growth
by Dawn Lennon - Nov, 2013
Work has a habit of revealing a lot about you. Coworkers watch what you do and then draw conclusions like you: Really know how to get stuff done the right way (or not) Are someone who should be promoted (or never allowed to supervise) Want to keep getting better (or only do enough to get by) You assess yourself too each time you cross a work hurdle, discovering that you: Take to new assignments with relative ease (or...
Relationships Matter–For Your Career and Your Life
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2013
Relationships don’t just happen–at least, the ones that matter don’t. And in my book, those are the only ones worth spending much time and energy on. Whether it’s in relation to your ongoing career success or to your non-work-related life, you can’t afford to ignore the value and importance of building and nurturing strong relationships. That’s true whether or not they produce any short-term benefits for you personally. R...
Not Everyone Needs to be an Executive
by Georgia Adamson - Nov, 2013
The employment trend for years has been to encourage (urge?) everyone to go for a college degree focused on a non-trades career. In fact, skilled trades stopped being even considered as a career path by many people, and those individuals who did choose such a goal have often been looked-down-on.

by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Oct, 2013
Is Socializing at Work Good for Your Career? One of my executive coaching clients was having some difficulty at her company determining whether employee socializing at work was a good or bad thing.

4 Signs That Your Job Could Be Stolen By A Robot
by Erika Andersen - Oct, 2013
This is not a joke, even though it sounds like a bad sci-fi movie or the title of a smudgy xeroxed screed being circulated amongst conspiracy theorists. I just read an article in Fast Company citing a recent Oxford University study that shows how almost half (47% ) of current jobs could be done by machines in the fairly near future. Reading this article sent me on an internet search for “jobs in danger of being automated”...
