Three Ways to Spring Clean Your Career
by Lindsey Pollak - Mar, 2010
I’m having trouble writing this blog post, because all I want to do is go outside and enjoy the warm spring air. Alas, I am inside at my computer, occasionally staring out my window at the bright blue sky. And, after I finish writing, there is more inside work to be done today. I’ve just received a delivery of three brown boxes filled with file folders, storage bins, crates and plastic hangers. I have a stack of garbage ba...
The WAR For Talent Is...OVER?
by Todd Rhoad - Mar, 2010
Many high achievers still fail to recognize the need for skills beyond their own technical ability. A hard charging attitude coupled with a graduate degree isn’t sufficient. While they see themselves as real talent, they fail to see that the needs of industry are continually evolving. The battle for technical skill alone is over. We’ve stepped off that field and have engaged a foe of the social nature. You’ve just spent tha...
No One Told Me...
by Dawn Bugni - Mar, 2010
No one told me... That was the response I heard when I asked a client about the monetary impact of changes she’d suggested and implemented. I pressed further. “Can you remember anything about how things changed after you introduced your idea?” Her response...a nervous giggle, then **crickets**. I’m not picking on her. It’s not the first time I’ve gotten that response. Pragmatically, we know no job comes with guarantees....
Face To Face
by Suzanne Bates - Mar, 2010
The other night three of us from our firm were taking the high speed Acela train home from New York. We clambered aboard at Penn Station and grabbed one of those foursome setups where the seats face each other. I was okay with it as long as I didnft have to ride backward. With one empty seat left, we were relieved and delighted when our friend Marcia unexpectedly appeared, exclaiming well, my day just got a whole lot bette...

by Tai Goodwin - Mar, 2010

Are You Getting The REALLY Important Things Done?
by Andy Robinson - Mar, 2010
One of the very common themes I come across when coaching my clients is the challenge of staying focused on the IMPORTANT at work. With so many "balls in the air" these days, the "magnetism" of the constant email "bell," the drop-bys in your office, the ringing telephone and the many distractions common to all of us, most busy professionals have a very hard time focusing their efforts on the things that are truly most importa...
by Nan S. Russell - Mar, 2010
The cyclical and now ubiquitously appearing phrase, back to basics, ignites supporters. The reasonableness of returning to previously successful principles, ethics, systems, accountability, approaches, or you-name-it, appears a tantalizing remedy for our individual or collective woes. Who can argue with the refocusing trend of business to trim waste or reconnect with customers, or an expert's approach to help income-starve...
Learn From Ben Franklin - His Tips Are Timeless

Benjamin Franklin had only two years of formal schooling, but he educated himself to become a leading American thinker, an extraordinary innovator and a major Enlightenment figure.

Franklin found ways to develop his skill sets and later...
