  Your HS Student May Not Be Ready for College
by Bob Roth - May, 2016
Before parents decide to send their High School graduates off to college, they should carefully consider their student’s chances for college success. As they told me during my own freshman orientation, “Look to the right! Look to the left! One of those two students won’t be here for graduation.” Those odds are even worse at some colleges today. That’s why it doesn’t make sense for parents to send a child off to college when he...
 
  The Not-So-Secret Skills Every Young Professional Needs
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2016
Lately, I’ve been hearing a common theme from managers of millennials. They’re hiring you for your record of strong performance, and you deliver. But two little words are holding you back: soft skills. Most professional newbies are unaware of a paradigm shift that happens when you segue from school to the workplace. Your whole life you’ve been striving to deliver the goods to earn the grade, but in a professional setting, p...

Giving notice is topic which figures into many of these conversations. The...

by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2016

At speaking engagements, I’m frequently asked about Gen Z: How are they different than Gen Y? What do managers and business leaders need to know about this new generation? Here is my take: BACK UP. WHAT IS GENERATION Z? Given that there is no exact science to how we define gene...
 
  Why Being Too Responsive Is Bad
by Marshall Goldsmith - Feb, 2016
Are you a highly responsive person? Are you so easily triggered that you respond in an uninterrupted A to B sequence that leaves no breathing room for hesitation, reflection and choice? How does a trigger actually work within us? Why do we respond seemingly without even thinking? Are there moving parts between the trigger and the behavior? If so, what are they? And how can we gain access them? I would suggest that the mo...
 
  Students Can't Ignore Important Activities And Still Expect To Land A Good Job
by Bob Roth - Feb, 2016
When students go through college without doing any of the things that lead to the best jobs, they should expect to be disappointed. The competition for good jobs is stiff, even in an excellent job market. Employers do not relax their requirements just because they have more open jobs. And yet, each year, many students graduate from college unprepared to compete for those jobs. Students who have already graduated or are i...
