Is Your Radar Turned On and Tuned In?
by Andy Robinson - Jul, 2011
Are your antennas up? Is your radar turned on and tuned in? Are opportunities "finding" you and appearing on your radar screen, or are you tuned into the channel of negativity and self-absorption .... missing those potentially life-changing personal and career-related opportunities? Being on the right channel and tuned into the right frequency is the ONLY way you can possibly pick up on the great ideas, suggestions, hints,...
Lying on a Nail
by Nan S. Russell - Jul, 2011
Once there was a young woman who didn't like her job. Everyday when she came home from work, she told her husband how terrible her day had been, how tiring the work and how unreasonable her boss. "Leave that job," her husband told her. "Oh I will" she said. "But not yet. I have too many friends there for me to leave just yet." And so she complained until the days became years and her family grew to five. "Leave that job," h...

by Valerie Sokolosky - Jul, 2011
So what's all the hubbub about this Personal Branding? It all started in 1997 when Tom Peters wrote an article for Fast Company called "The Brand Called You." Here's the main message: "Big companies understand the importance of brands. Today, in the 'Age of the Individual,' you have to be your own brand and stand out from the crowd.

Yet Another Reason to Clean Up Your Facebook Profile
by Lindsey Pollak - Jul, 2011
Over the years I’ve written multiple posts about the importance of cleaning up your online image and, specifically, your Facebook profile. When I first wrote about this topic in 2007, I found a study by the Ponemon Institute, a privacy think tank, reporting that 35 percent of hiring managers used Google to do online background checks on job candidates, and 23 percent admitted to looking people up on social networking sites....
Your Digital Dirt May Have Just Gotten Messier
by Barbara Safani - Jul, 2011
I’ve been writing about employers who Google candidates prior to interviewing them or hiring them for some time, but the stakes on using information found online to make a hiring decision just got higher. AOL recently reported that the Federal Trade Commission recently granted background check company Social Intelligence permission to search information from people’s social networking sites as part of routine background che...
Talk about commitment – career coaching in the janitor’s closet!
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2011
During one of my recent career coaching groups, client Brent admitted he had been attending our career coaching calls from some very interesting places at his company. Brent is one of the most committed clients I have ever worked with. I’m constantly impressed with his positive attitude, his willingness to take a look at the tough obstacles in his way, and he is the first one to take action on our homework every week. On t...
Are You a Reactor or a Responder?
by Andy Robinson - Jun, 2011
As a leader, as a human, it's natural and instinctive to REACT to a situation -- allowing our EMOTIONS to drive our immediate behavior. Many times, our initial/immediate reaction is something we regret later or is something we realize could have been handled much better. Great leaders are conscious of their reaction and response to situations. The best leaders substitute reaction with a conscious RESPONSE to a given situ...
Why "Grunt Work" Matters
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2011
I’ve become increasingly distressed over the years by the number of students and recent grads who complain to me that their jobs or internships contain too much “grunt work.” (Interestingly, these complaints have not slowed at all in the bad economy, when one might think any job, including one that requires some “gruntage,” is better than none.) First, let’s define this yucky phrase. According to a (possibly dubious?) entr...
Observe Those You Admire Most
by Andy Robinson - Jun, 2011
Make it a point to observe the people you respect -- those who really seem to "walk" the leadership talk and inspire others. • What EXACTLY do they do that draws their team members to them? • What actions do they take that really seem to uplift others? • What key behaviors stand out? • What is distinctly different or unique about the way they interact with others? Observing is a great way to learn. Look fo...
Positivity at Work
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Jun, 2011
I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients – the president of a mid-sized company. We discussed how to develop a positive mindset. My executive coaching client and I further discussed creating a culture of positivity can help the company’s sales force seal more deals. I am coaching my client on how company leaders can change the way people think and act to create a more positive...
