Are you walking the talk?
by Hallie Crawford - Aug, 2011
On a recent career group coaching call my client, Tracey, said something brilliant. In the previous week she had been working on becoming more aware of her behavior by observing herself more to understand if she was walking her talk. She has been talking about staying committed to her job search and remaining open to new ideas. Well she realized that some of this was just lip service and she wasn’t actually walking her talk!...

by Andy Robinson - Aug, 2011
I have a couple of executive coaching clients who share a great Monday morning habit -- one that really sets the tone for a positive week. It's a great way to kickstart the week and inspire your team members. It involves four simple steps: 1.Write down the names of all of your direct reports on a blank piece of paper -- no particular order, just a simple list with a few blank lines between each name. 2.For each person o...

When you think about personal branding, most of the time, you consider things like, what does my personal appearance say about my professionalism? Or what does my web site say about my innovation? Or what does my speech say about my work ethic? What gets forgotten, or really not even consider, is what does my office say about my company? And I mean physical office. Not your wonderful co-workers and superiors, but rather the...

Forgotten Forms of First Impressions
by Valerie Sokolosky - Aug, 2011
A crucial component of your professional image is your first impression. Your word choice, your tone, your appearance and your body language communicate a particular message to the person that you are meeting. Your entire relationship is built on this first interaction. Even if we don’t do a good job of preparing for this first meeting, most of us know that first impressions matter. We remember the offhanded comment said by...

by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2011

This happened to me again this week. This particular career coaching client said they figured they should try the opposite of what they were already doing.
