    by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - April 26, 2017
    Consider What To Keep, Stop, and Start to Reinvigorate Life and Career A friend shared recently that every seven years she goes through a change that impacts her life and career in new ways. She looks forward to the new lens through which she sees life and embraces the process of transition. The human body is constantly changing at a cellular level so the process of transformation runs deep within our very being. As a ca...
  • Everything Old Is New Again: The Ancient Business Strategy Every Modern Manager Needs
    by Lindsey Pollak - April 26, 2017
    Have you ever thought about how you learned to do your job? While there are new challenges every day, of course, there is also so much that you seem to just “know.” That proficiency not only inspires your clients and team to trust you, but it creates a self-confidence that boosts you to perform even better, day after day. But when you think back, it’s hard to remember how you figured out the ins and outs o...
  • Is Your Boss a Chief Critic Officer?
    by Marshall Goldsmith - April 26, 2017
    One of the bad habits that I talk about in my best-selling book What Got You Here Won’t Get You There is “Passing judgment: the need to rate others and impose our standards on them.” Some of you may have a boss who does this, some of you may do this yourselves. Let’s analyze this bad habit. While, there’s nothing wrong with offering an opinion in the normal give and take of business discussions...
  • Asking for a Raise
    by Mary Jeanne Vincent - April 25, 2017
    Timing can be a key factor when asking for a raise. Here are five excellent opportunities to ask for a raise. The first obvious opportunity is during your annual performance review, provided you have met or exceeded expectations. You should approach your yearly evaluation with the same preparation you would make when interviewing for a new job. In a sense, you are re-interviewing for your current position. Complete the p...
  • I'll Tell You, But Only Off The Record
    by Debra Wheatman - April 25, 2017
    If you have ever been through media training, one thing you come away with is the indisputable fact that nothing is ever “off the record.” You might request that it be, but that doesn’t mean that your audience, or your eavesdroppers, are compelled to comply with your wishes. “Off the record” has gone the way of the 3-martini lunch. We may not like it, but we have no choice but to deal with it....
  • Professional Resume Writing: Your Future Depends on It
    by Michelle Dumas - April 25, 2017
    You Consult a Professional for Everything Else in Your Life When you are sick, you go to the doctor. When it’s time to pay your taxes, you go to an accountant or tax service. When you need legal advice, you go to a lawyer. When your car breaks down, you bring it to an automotive technician. Professional resume writing? You may never have even thought of it. The biggest decision in your life is waiting,...
  • 7 Traits Of Inspiring Leadership That Uplifts Rather Than Destroys
    by Kathy Caprino - April 24, 2017
    In the leadership development work I do with mid- to high-level professionals, we begin by focusing on how to help each individual lead his or her own personal life in more positive and enlivening ways. You can’t lead anything well (including others, projects, growth, or organizational behavior) if you’re not honest, brave, emotionally self-aware and mentally healthy. After all, you’re a person when you show...
  • Do You Love What You Do?
    by Steve Farber - April 24, 2017
    How do you know if you love what you do for a living? It’s a simple question that seems straight-forward enough, but it’s not always easy to answer. Many people would instinctively say something like, “I just know” or “I can just feel that it’s right” or “I definitely know the opposite – when I don’t love what I do.” Those aren’t wrong answers, they&...
  • Everything Old Is New Again
    by Stacey Lane - April 24, 2017
    I’ve been walking several times a week with a friend. We hike through the hills in our neighborhood and at the end of the hour, I’ve easily gotten 90+ flights of stairs and 10,000 steps logged on my Fitbit. We chat the entire hour. We discuss politics, the economy, technology, work, family, new recipes we’ve tried and our weekend plans. We’re both self-employed so we often talk business strategy and wha...
  • Recruiters And Your Job Search
    by Georgia Adamson - April 21, 2017
    Clients often ask me about using executive recruiters in their job search. My first response frequently addresses a key misconception about what recruiters do and don’t do, followed by a few cautionary pieces of advice. If you’re considering recruiters as part of your job search strategy, you might want to take note of this. MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT RECRUITERS The most common mistaken idea is that recruiters will...
