Show Executive Presence in How You Deal with Critics
by Valerie Sokolosky - Aug, 2015
We all have them—critics I mean. They can be as close as the person across the breakfast table or as distant as an unknown source of a nasty “Tweet” on your Twitter account. You can’t control what critics say, but you can control your reactions! Maintain composure by considering how the criticism may just be an opportunity for your growth. Dwelling on the negative will only cause stress and doubt. Who needs that?! Leaders a...
This Four Letter Word Will Boost Your Productivity
by Alexandra Levit - Aug, 2015
Perfectionists are often reminded that “done is better than perfect.” But it turns out that there’s another reason we should all try to create more “done” moments in our workdays. Fellow Fast Track writer Alison Green tipped me off to a great new study on productivity, and it reminded me of a British sci-fi movie I just watched called Frequencies. In it, human beings interact with the world and with each other based on thei...
3 Ways to Get to Happiness in Your Career and Health
by Tiffany Young - Aug, 2015
Just a few days ago, I had a friend propose that we start working out together. I thought that was the best idea I heard all summer. Sweet! Any excuse to get in shape and do healthy activities sounded great. Before we ended the conversation, she also enlisted my help in finding her a new job. Hold up! It’s one thing to work out, but now she wanted to look for a new job? I thought to myself, I have no time for this and that....

If You Want to Get Ahead, Stop Talking!
by Bernie Frazier - Aug, 2015
Like all of you, I have interacted with thousands of people over the years. Having spent 25 years in recruiting and most of that time in Human Resources, my numbers are probably higher than most. I can’t tell you how many of them were bored, burned out, frustrated and wanted more from their career. They talked about it all the time. There was just one problem – all they did was talk about it. There was very little (or ver...
Market Your Skills for a Second Income
by Rowe Leathers - Aug, 2015
I am an enthusiastic believer in volunteering as the best way to gain experience in a new field. However, as some have pointed out, those with busy schedules and tight budgets rarely have free time to give away. For many, the little time that can be carved out needs to be utilized to earn additional income. If you are one of the many who would welcome a second income, it may be a good time to assess your knowledge and talen...
When to NOT Answer a Call from Recruiter
by Jean Cummings - Aug, 2015
The other day I was in the zone! I was laser focused on writing a high-impact, succinct, and ATS-friendly resume for a client with a very high-powered career in a fast-changing, highly complex industry. My mind was bearing down to understand deeply and then put into a very few words the value and power of what he brings to the table. Then, cut to next scene! My iPhone rings. Usually I have the sense to not answer my work p...

In this high-pressured, rapidly changing world, many people think multitasking is the answer to increased productivity. However, what you may not know is that it can take up to 15 minutes to reorient yourself each time you switch gears and move from task to task. Add this time...

Boost Your Brand, Lose The Ego
by Abby Locke - Aug, 2015
We have all experienced this...you are at a networking event or social gathering and there is that one person who is doing everything to get attention. Now, when it happens to me, I naturally get curious. I want to know the person’s story, check out his/her career background, review the professional resume and learn the real deal.
