Networking: Anywhere, Anytime
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Jun, 2011
I'm always touting the importance of networking and try to practice what I preach. I've been flying across the country presenting worshops and try to strike up a conversation with whomever is sitting next to me on the airplane. Of course, I try to gauge whether or not they're open to talking. If they whip out their book and don't exchange pleasantries, I leave them alone. On a recent trip to Lansing, Michigan, I sat next to a...
Are you strategic or authentic?
by Christine Hassler - Jun, 2011
“Good communication does not mean that you have to speak in perfectly formed sentences and paragraphs. It isn’t about slickness. Simple and clear go a long way.” -John Kotter Is your communication clear or calculated? A theme in many of my sessions this week with clients was a desire to talk about a conversation they were anticipating having and get advice on what to say. After they told me the story behind the a...

Invaluable Resources for Job Search Success
by Heather Mundell - May, 2011
Embarking on a job search is a lot like heading out on a backpacking trip. Sure, you could show up at the trailhead with only a liter of water, a granola bar and an indomitable spirit. But come the afternoon, after the biting flies have found you and your granola bar is a distant memory, your energy starts to flag. By nightfall, as the cold sets in and you realize you're lost, you know it's time to turn back. Just like a ba...
MAKE THAT NET-WORK
by Wendy Adams - May, 2011
The old adage of its not what you know, but who you know will never go out of style. We see it daily represented in almost anything publically displayed in the media. Now that media is currently most strongly held in the hands of the people, there is no shortage of proof that power is grown by the more people you know; the greater the access you have to these people and by the diversity of people you know. We are expanding...

by Nan S. Russell - May, 2011
Since she'd been referred by a good client, I rearranged my schedule to accommodate a phone meeting for what she described as a "pressing decision" about a potential business endeavor I had experience with. The day before our appointment, the call was confirmed and it was verified that she would call my office at the arranged time. When the time arrived and no call came, I was surprised. Fifteen minutes later, still no call...
The garden and the network
by Dawn Bugni - May, 2011
I worked in the yard this past weekend. Truth be told, a well-manicured lawn and perfect landscaping hasn’t been a priority for many years. Combine five dogs and two growing businesses (up until 2009) with country living and no homeowners association to tell me weed whack and it got a little shaggy around the edges. I’ve learned; if you don’t’ get in control early in spring; forget it. The weeds win. This year, I found a ne...
