by Alexandra Levit and Cady Chesney - May, 2014
Being successful in a corporate environment can be a difficult task for those fresh out of college or new to the environment. The business tactics, office politics, and expectations of peers and managers are typically things a new employee has to figure out on his or her own – until now. Alexandra Levit, a business consultant and author of "They Don’t Teach Corporate in College," joins the show to share insightful tips and tri...
 
  Are You Classifying Your Employees Correctly?
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2015
My organization, the Career Advisory Board, which was established in 2010 by DeVry University, recently completed a research study with MBO Partners on the future of independent work. We were interested in this topic because we had seen statistics that by 2020, nearly half the American workforce will consist of contract workers. Although organizations are employing increasing numbers of freelance workers, many are not prop...
 
  Have You Audited Your Culture Lately?
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2015
In a recent session at SilkRoad Connections, Ulthera’s Stacie Madden placed the onus for cultural assessment on HR representatives. Fortunately, auditing your culture does not have to be an overly complex or expensive proposition. The Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument is a valid method to examine organizational culture and the desire for change. University of Michigan business school professors Robert Quinn a...
 
  Why You Must Adapt or Watch Your Business Die
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2015
Just how important is adaptability to business or career success? According to a 2013 study by DeVry University’s Career Advisory Board, 93 percent of hiring managers say that senior-level job seekers need to demonstrate the ability to adapt in order to cope with the ever-changing workplace. This type of senior leader—one who has learned how to roll with the punches—is essential to guiding 21st century businesses. Gallup’s...
 
  What is Your Time Culture?
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2015
In her book The Culture Map, global workplace expert Erin Meyer talks about one particular keynote speech she had to give to an audience in Brazil. Her remarks were slated to last 60 minutes, but the client said she could take all the time she needed. Meyer didn’t quite believe him. After all, during just about any keynote address in America, you can expect a firm index card countdown: “10 minutes remaining” “5 min...
 
  Help! My Male Colleague Thinks I'm Too Emotional!
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2015
Here's my final DailyWorth.com question. Hope you all enjoyed this feature! "I called a senior-level manager to find out why one of my team members did not pass a board certification. When he provided the feedback, I pushed back with strong points. He immediately pulled the girl card. Instead of addressing my issues, he said: `Obviously you are too emotional to talk now. I said I was fine and asked another question, and th...
 
  How to Present Career Longevity on a Resume
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2015
Today's post is another question from a DailyWorth.com reader: “I am 57 years old, and I'm concerned that my resume goes back too far and may be too long. When the high-tech company I worked for went under, I returned to school, got a master's degree in education and began teaching. I worked in the inner city for 10 years and finally burned out and left two years ago. Since then I have been working part-time in grant-fund...

by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2015
Today's reader question from DailyWorth.com: “I have been in my field for over two decades and I’m ready to start my dream career, but I’m not sure what that looks like exactly. I’m obsessed with organization and budgeting, but without a hardcore financial background, I’m unsure what type of job this would be. I want to look forward to going to work every day. What do you suggest?” The first thing I’d like to do is he...
 
  Navigating a Personal Friendship at Work
by Alexandra Levit - Jan, 2015
Here's another reader question from DailyWorth.com: I work in a small credit union as a temp with a close friend who has been watching me closely at the office. How do I keep work separate from social? I know she is just trying to help me become permanent, but it can be stressful. — Marie, New York What came first: the close friendship or the job? If the friendship came first, then it’s probably worth protecting the re...
 
  Troubleshooting: Other Teams' Cooperation or Lack Thereof
by Alexandra Levit - Dec, 2014
If you’re working with other teams outside your own who are not involved in your daily meetings, they’re not always on the same page as you regarding priorities — and sometimes they can become a roadblock to your team’s progress. How can you address that without causing additional friction? Here's my advice: Getting through organizational roadblocks, or simply trying to persuade a colleague to come over to the side of yo...
 
  Interview with Scott Stratten on Customer Service
by Alexandra Levit - Dec, 2014
Good customer service is all about the happy medium, and the right interpersonal skills will help you determine where that is. Along with his partner Alison Kramer, president of UnMarketing Scott Stratten recently hosted a podcast on too-good customer service. Apparently, it is possible to go overboard, and this can leave an impression just as bad as poor service. The discussion got me thinking about the rarely discussed nu...
