Be Who You Want to Be
by Alexandra Levit - Oct, 2009
In high school, you probably had a friend whom all the parents loved. You remember the type: good student, athletic team star, community volunteer, kind to children and animals, etc, etc. This kid never got in trouble and always did everything that was expected of her. And every time your mom or dad praised her, you would feel a little twinge of envy. A part of you wished you were that kid. The part of us that wants to be l...
Which Generation is Losing the Career Fight? (It’s Not Who You Think)
by J.T. O'Donnell - Oct, 2009
I recently attended a dinner party where the attendees ranged in age from 23 to 68. Not surprisingly, the conversation turned to the recession and horrible job market. The more ’seasoned’ workers at the table started to rant about their circumstances. The dialog drifted from the lack of raises given out at their companies to the various friends whose spouses had lost their jobs and how it was making finances tight in their hou...
Are You Ready To Stop Wasting Time on Company Politics?
by Sharon Melnick, Ph.D. - Oct, 2009
Salary.com does a survey every year of time wasting in the workplace. The 2008 report revealed that 75% of employees engage in time wasting behaviors, and half of those surveyed stated that they waste time dealing with office politics. The faces of politics are many. It might take the form of someone holding onto turf by “throwing you under the boss”, a boss who doesn’t “get you” or promote you, or colleagues or bosses who ...
Are These Career Myths Holding you Back?
by Marcia Robinson - Oct, 2009
There is really no one right way or one path to achieve the career happiness or the "career nirvana" many of us seek. All of us know that multiple factors affect the career decisions or life choices we make at any given time. If we are exploring a career makeover during this recession or changing careers, we must explore and debunk any career myths or perceptions that might be holding us back. As Olivia Crosby says in her a...

by Bernadette Boas - Oct, 2009

When young children misbehave, many parents, teachers and caregivers insist on a time-out. Think how much better your workplace would be if you initiated the same approach. No, not for your boss or coworkers, but for yourself. It's hard to be amenable to reason or hear a contrary point of view when we're stubbornly clinging to our position. It's hard to hear a new idea when the change that's being suggested will negatively ...
Managing a Critical Aggressor: Case Example
by Mark Gorkin - Sep, 2009
Let’s try a mind exercise. You’ve just given a presentation at an important meeting. As the meeting concludes you turn to a colleague (a casual acquaintance) and ask, “How did the presentation go?” And in a decidedly judgmental and unfriendly tone this colleague declares, “Frankly, you fumbled the data. Obviously, you didn’t prepare very well!” Imagine being the presenter. How would you feel receiving such critical fee...
Bullied On-the-Job...How Do I Fight Back?
by Rob Taub - Sep, 2009
Dear Rob, I see workplace bullying as an increasing trend...especially, since it happened to me. It happened at my previous job with my supervisor. She would humiliate me and degrade me, while upper management did nothing. I ended up getting laid off when cuts were made. What can one do to protect themselves from this? Response by Rob Taub: You cannot easily protect yourself from being bullied. We have nothing to do w...
The Art of Change
by Nan S. Russell - Sep, 2009
From the iron age to nearly the industrial age, blacksmiths prospered. Villagers needed plows, shovels, iron tires for wagons, nails and tools to build their homes, all of which the blacksmiths forged. They needed their horses and oxen shod and their tools repaired. Being a blacksmith was a sound professional choice. Yet despite flourishing for centuries, this vital profession was all but eliminated in a few generations. W...
Build a Bridge and Get Over It!
by Rob Taub - Sep, 2009
An hourly employee of a company that employs a lot of people to do a lot of the same kind of work, complained that he felt as though his employer held his job hostage. “Why is it if I want to go to a ball game or concert, I can’t ask for the time off on short notice when there is obviously enough coverage to accommodate it?" One might respond "Hey, build a bridge and get over it!" I won't, because I understand the frustration ...
