Predictions about the Future of Gen Y at Work
by Lindsey Pollak - Jun, 2011
As another cohort of young professionals enters the workforce this graduation season, I’ve been pleased to see some more positive articles about Generation Y appearing in the media. Sure, the members of this generation are still young and have a lot to learn, but, these articles assert, maybe they’re not as “entitled” and “coddled” as older generations feared. Finally some good press for today’s twentysomethings! I’ve be...
Want to Serve on a Non-Profit Board? Put Your Business Hat On.
by Dawn Lennon - Jun, 2011
It lifts us up when we do "good" for others: Help our neighbor, donate money to charity, volunteer at an event, or serve on a non-profit board. Non-profit board positions are platforms from which we can lead, engage support, and help more people. Some people "collect" board appointments to look important and influential. Others can't get beyond operational details to focus on the long-term. Many are so uncomfortable wi...
Rattle The Cage in Your Career Transition
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2011
In my career coaching I use the concept of Gremlins with my coaching clients to help them define and begin to overcome their fears, negative thoughts or obstacles about making a career change. The concept comes from a book I highly recommend called Taming Your Gremlin by Rick Carson. I’ve found over the years is that when your fears intensify, it can be a good thing because it means you are making change. You are doing some...
3 Tips for Writing Your First Resume after Being Fired
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jun, 2011
There’s often nothing more shocking than being fired from a job. Not only is it difficult to lose an income, but the stigma attached to it can be difficult to overcome. For some, the idea of applying for a new job after being fired can be overwhelming. How do you tell a prospective employer that your old employer decided to let you go? There are ways to create a resume that doesn’t rain on an already-muddy situation. Let’s...
Career Advice: Should you lie to your boss?
by Hallie Crawford - May, 2011
One of my career coaching clients, Robert, recently was wondering if he should tell his boss how unhappy he was at work. Robert had not been there very long but he was miserable, and pretty much ready to quit. Should you lie to your boss about whether you're happy at work? Almost all of my clients deal with this question. I will give you the same advice that I gave James. Being up front about your discontent at your job rea...
How to be “Great on the Job,” a review
by Miriam Salpeter - May, 2011
Communication — and communicating well, in business and in all circumstances — is key for career success. It’s not always easy to know what to say, and it certainly isn’t always obvious how to say it. Jodi Glickman’s new book, Great On the Job, comes to the rescue. Known as a strong, strategic communicator with many successful examples to back up her words, Jodi, who’s landed jobs due to her interviewing skills, even though sh...
Corporate Culture and Accountability – Achieving True Accountability
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - May, 2011
I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients - a managing partner in a growing company. We discussed how the managing partners are held accountable for achieving goals and delivering results. My client’s company is led by a leadership team where several members lack emotional intelligence. My executive coaching client and I further discussed how the culture that got them to where...
MAKE THAT NET-WORK
by Wendy Adams - May, 2011
The old adage of its not what you know, but who you know will never go out of style. We see it daily represented in almost anything publically displayed in the media. Now that media is currently most strongly held in the hands of the people, there is no shortage of proof that power is grown by the more people you know; the greater the access you have to these people and by the diversity of people you know. We are expanding...
by Suzanne Bates - May, 2011
Many years ago as a young, single professional, I got this idea that I should put down roots. Although I was a carpet bagging television reporter moving from city to city every two or three years, I found a condo in Tampa that I loved and couldn’t afford. Though I was likely to leave town before a year or two was out, I really wanted to buy it. My dad happened to be coming for a visit so I took him to see the place. As we st...
