  How To Keep A Job In Tough Times
by William Cottringer - Apr, 2012
“The quickest way to appreciate your job is to imagine yourself without one.” ~Oscar Wilde. In tough economic times, it is not a good thing to be unemployed. And if you are lucky enough to have a job, you don’t want to do anything to lose it by doing or not doing something under your control. In most states misconduct or quitting for no good cause will keep you from being eligible for unemployment benefits. And som...
 
  Inner or Outie? Know which one you are to define your ideal job
by Hallie Crawford - Apr, 2012
One thing that everyone must consider when defining their ideal career direction is whether they are more introverted or more extroverted. This can be a make it or break it for whether or not your job is a fit for you. It is also a critical piece to figuring out the best work environment for you. I had a job a long time ago that did not match with my more introverted nature. I was required to be extroverted for much of the...
 
  Can Your Boss Count on You?
by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2012
You know what I've realized in my tenure as a manager? The number one quality I appreciate most in a direct report is reliability. By reliable, I mean a person who says she is going to do something, and then actually does it in the agreed-upon manner. You’d think this one would be kind of a no brainer for employees, especially when it comes to the boss who hands out the paychecks. But time and time again, in both my perso...
 
  If Bubba Were a CEO...
by Suzanne Bates - Apr, 2012
So I am watching TV, I think it was ESPN, and they have hauled out an old 2010 interview with Bubba Watson, the improbable and irrepressible winner of this year's utterly unpredictable Masters Tournament. Bubba is smiling, hitting shots off the staged practice area, and telling a story about how he once demo'd a new golf club by playing an entire round with only that club. He shot a 77. "I figured after that it was worth putti...
 
  Premature Escalation?
by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2012
A few years ago, I was finishing up a project at the agency where I worked part time. My colleague and I had been working closely with another internal team on this initiative for a while and fortunately, things were going relatively smoothly. As the vice president overseeing the project, I always tried to be responsive to the internal team’s needs, knowing that they represented the best interests of the client. My colleag...
 
  Sharing Your Wisdom
by Suzanne Bates - Apr, 2012
I was on a panel at the National Speakers Association where the moderator posed this question: "As a business owner, how do you allocate your time to be sure you are doing the right thing?" If you lead an organization of any size, that is THE question, isn't it? It was a lay-up for me. Not because I always get it right. But because I actually have a formula that works. Years ago, when I was starting my company, I didn...
 
  What is Your Advantage Really?
by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2012
You probably already know that I am a huge fan of Pat Lencioni. I first met Pat when I wrote about him in the WSJ in 2009 and have devoured his various fables about executives jockeying for key positions and striving for self-actualization in fictional American companies. This week, Pat has released his first nonfiction business book, The Advantage. In it, he argues that the difference between successful companies and me...
 
  Resign Your Job without Ending Your Career
by Debra Wheatman - Apr, 2012
Most of us, at one point in our career, fantasize about quitting a job in a bombastic, dramatic, or humorous fashion. Remember the Jerry Maguire mission statement about the sports agencies? Or, how about the “I quit song" from the movie, “That Thing You Do?” How liberating to leave in a blaze of glory! Acting out this fantasy can be a career-ending move. Two words of advice for you: be diplomatic. It is cliché but tru...
 
  Career Obituary: Who are you at the end of your career journey
by Hallie Crawford - Apr, 2012
Sometimes it’s hard to see clearly who we want to be right now, how we define success, and how to find career fulfillment over time. If things are blurry for you, try writing your Career Obituary. Here’s how it works: Fast forward 20 (or however many) years to your ultimate retirement party. Significant colleagues, loyal networking connections, and supportive friends and family are all in attendance. Several of your co...
 
  Executive Coach's Tip: Avoid Working in Isolation
by Andy Robinson - Apr, 2012
Want to know a secret that GREAT relationship builders use constantly? They avoid working in isolation. They work WITH others. They work THROUGH others. They SEEK the ADVICE and counsel of others. They ask for the OPINION of others. They run things by their colleagues, their advisors, their peers.They COLLABORATE. Getting things done DOES require us to hunker down at times and "just do it" ourselves. MOST of the time...
