End Your Day With These Questions
by Andy Robinson - Jul, 2011
Finding a few minutes at the end of the day to reflect back ON your day is an excellent habit. Many times I'll journal those reflections, particularly if something substantive surfaces as a result of the reflection process. During my reflection time, I ask the following questions and answer them to myself: •What NEW THING did I learn today? What action can I take on that learning point? •Did I do a good job today of LIS...
Business Behavior 101
by Bob Roth - Jul, 2011
When recent college graduates and other applicants start a new job, they can feel like a fish out of water. That?s because they are unfamiliar with the people in the company, the company culture, company values, expectations, rituals and the acceptable behavior. However, new employees are almost always better off when they can quickly fit into the new work environment. With that in mind, there are seven areas that new emplo...
How can your past inform your career future?
by Miriam Salpeter - Jul, 2011
I attended the National Career Development Association (NCDA) conference last week, and I wanted to share some information from one of the keynote speakers, Mark Guterman. He spoke about the importance of memory when focusing on future career decisions in his discussion, “In Remembrance Lies the Secret . . . .” He shared some great quotes: “Memory is the soul’s witness to the capricious mind.” – Heschel “If you’re luc...
How to Make a Career Change
by Thomas J. Denham - Jul, 2011
My clients struggle with making a career change because they think it’s done in one big leap. The fact is it does not happen overnight, so don’t do it cold turkey. Reinventing yourself will likely take a year or more. Take these incremental steps to make the transition. 1. Evaluate the Situation – Where am I now? STOP and write down the key sources of your dissatisfaction (i.e., job duties, your boss, salary/benefits, c...
Michelle Obama’s take on finding your dream job
by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2011
I really liked this quote from Michelle Obama’s commencement speech at Northern Iowa University. It reminds me of something I often tell my clients. The path won’t always be laid out neatly for you. Sometimes you won’t be able to find that perfect job. Sometimes you might momentarily take a job just to stay afloat. – Michelle Obama This could not be any truer. Just like life, your career path isn’t going to always be su...
How to Create Collaborative Business Teams - The 3:1 Positivity Ratio

I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients – the president of a professional services firm. My executive coaching client and I discussed how firm leaders could create a more positive work culture.

Lying on a Nail
by Nan S. Russell - Jul, 2011
Once there was a young woman who didn't like her job. Everyday when she came home from work, she told her husband how terrible her day had been, how tiring the work and how unreasonable her boss. "Leave that job," her husband told her. "Oh I will" she said. "But not yet. I have too many friends there for me to leave just yet." And so she complained until the days became years and her family grew to five. "Leave that job," h...
Yet Another Reason to Clean Up Your Facebook Profile
by Lindsey Pollak - Jul, 2011
Over the years I’ve written multiple posts about the importance of cleaning up your online image and, specifically, your Facebook profile. When I first wrote about this topic in 2007, I found a study by the Ponemon Institute, a privacy think tank, reporting that 35 percent of hiring managers used Google to do online background checks on job candidates, and 23 percent admitted to looking people up on social networking sites....
Your Digital Dirt May Have Just Gotten Messier
by Barbara Safani - Jul, 2011
I’ve been writing about employers who Google candidates prior to interviewing them or hiring them for some time, but the stakes on using information found online to make a hiring decision just got higher. AOL recently reported that the Federal Trade Commission recently granted background check company Social Intelligence permission to search information from people’s social networking sites as part of routine background che...
