by Dawn Bugni - Jul, 2011
Yesterday, I shared an email from a job seeker and offered some suggestions how he (you) can improve on responses to requests for assistance. The job seeker’s questions and concerns are common, so I’m sharing what I told him with you. Here’s his original email: “I am currently unemployed and for the past few months I have been trying to present better ways to get my resume points of view across to recruiters. I have been...

The #1 Way to Be a Great Employee
by Lindsey Pollak - Jul, 2011
In one of the first jobs of my career, I had a very hands-on, micromanaging boss. She frequently double- and triple-checked that I had completed even the smallest tasks. Not surprisingly, it kind of drove me crazy. Looking back, though, I consider that job to be one of my best learning experiences in professionalism, attention to detail and—most importantly—the art of “managing up.” When people talk about management, the...
If You’re Not Going to be Genuine, Don’t Bother
by Louise Fletcher - Jul, 2011
Not long ago, I was invited to join a brand new business social networking site. Because I like the person who sent the invite, I clicked ‘yes’ and signed up. But having looked around, I decided it was much too early stage to spend time on. For the last 3 days, I’ve received an email from the site founder. The first one thanked me for signing up and made reference to the fact I’m a resume writer. I thought that was a nice t...
Grumbling About Work? Get Over It!
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2011
It’s become a pastime, a bit of on-the-job sport. Grumbling starts out innocently but can become all-consuming, taking on many forms like: - Harping about the boss’s annoying habits - Whining about boring work - Complaining about your cubicle location - Obsessing over how long it might take to get promoted The more we grumble, the more we grumble. It’s not a cure for anything, but a perpetuator. Who’s...

by Kesi Stribling - Jul, 2011
The movie Horrible Bosses pulled in $28.3 million during its premier weekend. That should come as no surprise as the summer heat beckons us to cooler environments. Movie theaters are the perfect place to enjoy a little humor while keeping cool. The draw, however, was not solely the promise of frigid air for a few hours. Folks flocked to the big screen comedy to gain a glimpse into the characters’ world of horrible bosses – and...
Hungry for Leadership Success? Whip Up a Batch of Principles
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2011
Serve them to your employees. They’re as hungry for success as you are. Employees know the drill: They’re expected to deliver specific results for which they’re compensated. The better they perform, the more likely their careers will advance. When they understand what matters to their bosses, they can perform with minimal uncertainty. Bosses who aren’t clear about what drives their leadership and who act inconsistently...
Want to Get Heard? Say Less.
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2011
Did this ever happen to you? You’re in a meeting about a complex problem facing your work group. Everyone’s got their own idea about the cause and what to do about it. The discussion consists of: - Blaming bad decision-making or poor management - One-sided perspectives on the “real” factors obstructing a fix - Accusations about how no one cared about the situation until now - Seat-of-the-pants solutions...
Be a Compliment Columbo!
by Christine Hassler - Jul, 2011
When you hunt for things to acknowledge and celebrate in others, you will soon detect a greater level of appreciation for everything. “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”- Leo F. Buscaglia One of my favorite things to do out in the world is be what I call a...
