  Bored at work? Then do something!
by Beverly Jones - Mar, 2014
Boredom isn’t productive. So make some changes! As I waited in a Post Office line, I watched the clerk. She looked to be so deep into the doldrums that she could barely hear her customers. It seemed that, when she finally took in a request, she’d move in slow motion, lethargically searching through stacks of paper with her eyes half closed and her mouth half open. As the minutes ticked on, I became annoyed. T...
 
  Is it time to strengthen your professional brand?
by Beverly Jones - Feb, 2014
What’s your brand at work? And why does it matter? There’s you, the essential person you are. Obviously related, but not quite the same, is you — the professional who shows up on the job and makes a contribution. And then there’s your professional brand. Originally a “brand” referred to a word or symbol indicating the owner or producer of a product. Ranchers used hot irons to brand cattle. And bac...
 
  Have goals? Measuring progress gets you there faster!
by Beverly Jones - Jan, 2014
Step 1: Set clear goals. Step 2: Choose metrics. Do you have professional and other goals in mind for the year? For the future? So what’s your plan? It can be motivating to have a broad, enticing vision, but it can also be daunting. Sometimes people put off their biggest objectives and most exciting projects because they don’t even know where to begin. To get started and keep moving toward your goals,...
 
  Thriving when change is the new normal at work
by Beverly Jones - Jan, 2014
How to stay steady in a changing workplace A longtime client I’ll call “Betty” asked me to give a talk about how to survive in an organization that’s going through a multi-year transition. I was pleased to speak at the company where Betty is a manager. But when she told me the topic, I was surprised. That’s because I can’t think of anybody more adept than Betty at navigating a rewarding career through an industry...
 
  Interested In a New Career Path? Try These Steps to Get Started
by Beverly Jones - Jul, 2010
Chances are that you have a career switch in your future. Maybe changes in your professional field will force you to look for something new. Or maybe you will elect to step off the treadmill and find a career that is less stressful or more personally rewarding. Perhaps, like me, you’ll keep things interesting by reinventing your career several times. If you are beginning to think about a new career direction, but don’t know...
 
  Want to Sell Your Ideas? Go Back to the Basics Of Effective Communications

Whether you are speaking to a single colleague or planning a major campaign, your success may depend on your ability to communicate in a persuasive way. And even beyond your career, your ability to be convincing can impact your opportunities for leadership and success in many areas of your life. Whenever you are planning a com...
 
  Create Harmony & Fulfillment By Creating Practices That Work
by Beverly Jones - May, 2010
Our routine practices – our normal ways of doing things – shape much of our time, even though we may not be conscious of these habitual patterns. But we have the power to transform our lives by examining our own activities, and replacing some of our habits with a new set of practices that are both mindful and rewarding. This kind of mindful “practice” is close to the conscious, regular activity you might undertake if you pu...
 
  Is It Time to Start Planning Your Next Dream Career?
by Beverly Jones - May, 2010
In a regular U.S. News & World Report feature called “Second Acts,” Kerry Hannon writes about Americans between the ages of 44 and 70 who have launched “encore careers.” For more than three years, she has been interviewing some of the estimated 8.4 million Americans who have moved from a corporate or other traditional job track to an entirely new career that combines income with personal meaning and social impact. In “What...
 
  We Say More Than We Realize – Body Language Can Be Powerful
by Beverly Jones - Apr, 2010
In a dog training ring it can be easy to see that our success depends on how we move our bodies. With practice we discover that every movement, and even each shift in our attitude, may change the way our dogs respond to our commands. Although we are less conscious of it, the same thing can happen in a business meeting. When we are with other people we send a constant stream of nonverbal messages. Body language can signal fa...
 
  Learn From Ben Franklin - His Tips Are Timeless
by Beverly Jones - Mar, 2010
Benjamin Franklin had only two years of formal schooling, but he educated himself to become a leading American thinker, an extraordinary innovator and a major Enlightenment figure. As a teenager, Franklin methodically taught himself to write and speak well. He read essays in leading English journals, took brief notes, then later recreated the essays in his own words. Franklin found ways to develop his skill sets and later...
