When it comes to building or diminishing trust at work one thing is clear, there is no little stuff. Everything matters. That includes routine actions, casual habits, and how, what and to whom you communicate. Too often, the speed of work causes us to quickly craft a message or reply without awareness of its trust-diminishing or enhancing dynamics.

by Louise Fletcher - Apr, 2014
So you’ve read lots of resume advice, and you know that your resume needs strong, results-focused bullet points. But try as you might, you don’t really know how to write those bullet points. I sympathize – it’s very hard to write about yourself in this way. Most of us have been taught to be humble and modest about our accomplishments, and now suddenly we’re required to brag about them.

Nepo’s premise can serve as a powerful lesson about this frenzied world we live in today. If you were to reflect on your past career changes, you might find t...

by Valerie Sokolosky - Apr, 2014
It’s hard to believe, but May is almost here…and summer isn’t too far behind. I remember the rhyme from my school days: “April showers bring May flowers.” While my part of the world wasn’t too rainy this past month, we’re beginning to see Mother Nature’s colorful spring bouquet everywhere we look. It’s also exciting to see the pace of business picking up in many areas that have been in hibernation through the winter. So now...

Negotiating an Executive Level Salary
by Lisa Rangel - Apr, 2014
You got your foot in the door of that executive level position you were eyeing, you nailed the interview, and you’ve been told that you’re at the top of the list of qualifying candidates. Congrats!

Big positions tend to equal big mo...

As a career coach, I get a ringside seat to great brands and so-so brands. But so do you - take your experience as a consumer and think about your favorite brands. What's their emotional appeal?

by Georgia Adamson - Apr, 2014
