Question for Discussion – How do you as a leader create the future? I loved reading Steve Job’s biography and have recommended it to many of my clients and friends. I was so inspired by his focus and passion. Mr. Job’s driven and perfectionistic personality motivated him to achieve greatness. Steve Job’s creativity and genius for creating products that invent the future is so inspiring. Oh Wow! My executive coaching cli...
Job Interview Tips–Do’s and Don’ts
by Georgia Adamson - Feb, 2012
Job seekers who are scheduled for interviews often assume they’ll be dealing with interviewers who know what they’re doing. Not necessarily. What’s more, those interviewers might have hidden agendas that you as a job seeker have no clue about. That being said, you increase your chances of making it through the first interview and into the second round if you keep some interview preparation do’s and don’ts in mind. (Note: Any d...

Personal Brand – YOU
by Louise Garver - Feb, 2012
Executives, yes this means you, too. Understanding and communicating your brand will help you in all stages of your job search, as well as in managing your career going forward. Do you have a rock solid brand message that clearly and concisely is achieving the results you desire? If not, it’s no longer a “nice to have, but a must have.” Don’t waste valuable time during the first quarter of the year when some of the best opport...
The Problem with Being “Open”
by Norine Dagliano - Feb, 2012
Recently I began providing job search coaching for clients who are receiving services through their university. Each coaching session is done over the phone and limited to one hour, so it is imperative that I cover as much as I can to help each job candidate jumpstart or enhance their job search efforts. All of my calls cover a variety of topics; however, if I were only able to provide just one nugget of advice that would dram...
Visualizing a “New You” is Essential to Changing Careers
by Norine Dagliano - Feb, 2012
One of the more difficult hurdles to surmount when making a career change is to begin thinking and talking about you in a new way. When we have been in a role for a very long time, we have an ingrained way of thinking, communicating and acting that reflects this. If you want your prospective employer to see you play the part for which you are “auditioning,” it is essential that you take on the persona of that “character”....
WISHING AND HOPING
by Nan S. Russell - Feb, 2012
Years after Disneyland was built, after the completion of Walt Disney World, the story goes that someone went up to Mike Vance, Creative Director for Walt Disney Studios and said, "Isn't it too bad Walt Disney didn't live to see this?" Without pausing, he replied, "But he did see it, that's why it's here." If any outside figure influenced my life early on, it was Walt Disney. Maybe because when I was five, my favorite uncle...
How To Make Yourself Three Times More Likely to Get Hired
by Arthur Frank - Jan, 2012
Research done by the executive search industry has shown that the first person interviewed gets the job only 17.6 percent of the time. But the last person interviewed is hired almost 56 percent of the time, or more than three times more frequently. The reason: As in most human endeavors, people are wary of accepting the first choice offered. Therefore, do what you can to position yourself among the last candidates intervie...
How to Stand out from the Crowd in a Competitive Market
by Frank Traditi - Jan, 2012
To stand out from the crowd, conduct your job search like a marketing campaign. The traditional picture of job-seeking is that you look for open positions posted somewhere and follow a formal application procedure to be considered for them. But with thousands of job-seekers applying for only those positions that are advertised, the competition can be overwhelming. The only way to beat the odds and the competition is to a...
How to steer your own career and find a job in the new economy
by Miriam Salpeter - Jan, 2012
Steering your own career, getting a new job — or what I like to call “driving your own career bus” is more important today than ever. Everyone needs to maintain responsibility for his or her own success, and that includes keeping an eye out for larger trends and signs and signals of change at a current employer. Burying your head in the sand and ignoring the writing on the wall when your company falls out of favor in the marke...
