The Problem with Groupthink and Teams
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - May, 2012
Teamwork demands shared responsibility, but it also demands individual contributions. It fails if team members shelter behind the consensus. ~ Robert Heller, Founding Editor, Management Today I recently spoke with a director of human resources who was searching for a San Francisco Bay Area executive coach for the executive team at her company.

What do you really know about a prospective employer?
by Louise Garver - May, 2012
The internet has made easy work of finding potential candidates through social networking sites like LinkedIn and Facebook. Executive membership sites have thrived in the last ten years providing executives with job search information and recruiters with a database of well-defined and targeted candidates. And you are aware that most job seekers today are Googled before being contacted for a pre-screen or interview. However, w...
What is the cutoff for old information on resumes?
by Julie Walraven - May, 2012
One of the AmeriCorps members asked a common question: What’s the cut off (time of years passed) when a job is no longer applicable on a resume? And what about training classes or memberships? This is a common question because my clients ask it all the time. Here are some of the points to remember when putting things on your resume or taking them off and some ways to use old information. One rule of thumb for prof...
How to Have a Healthy Job Search Network
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2012
A successful job search can depend heavily on having a healthy network. However, you won’t have one until you build it, and you won’t have it for long unless you nourish or sustain it! Note: Sustain means to “strengthen or support physically or mentally,” and that’s as critical for a healthy job search network as it is for anything else you expect to be–and remain–productive for you. When I started thinking about this topic,...
Your LinkedIn Profile Picture May Be Killing Your Job Prospects
by Joshua Waldman - May, 2012
I don’t really consider myself an HR person. I like to think I’m a practical technologist. However, I do occasionally attend HR-related training. Yesterday was one such occasion and inevitably, I had a shock. The discussion moved from hiring techniques to LinkedIn photos. Many of the folks in the room agreed that LinkedIn photos should be professional. No argument there. But someone told us a story that made us all cringe....
How To Plot A Course To Your Career Destiny
by Robin Fisher Roffer - May, 2012
Aim higher with a vision statement that takes you to the nexus of purpose and potential. “So tell me, where do you see yourself in five years?” I’ve always had disdain for that frequently asked and totally uninspired interview question. After all, it’s not about the next five years — it’s about your whole life! The question should be, “What kind of impact do you want to make in the world and how do you want to be recognize...
Are you telling your own online story?
by Miriam Salpeter - May, 2012
I was watching one of the Sunday morning political shows this week, and I couldn’t help but be inspired to write about some of the topics they discussed that mirror personal and professional issues we all face. Maybe you’ve heard the news that, as a teenager, Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, was involved in some activities we would identify as bullying. Whether or not you believe how someone be...

Cover Letters versus E-Notes
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2012
Some things get super-sized, like fast-food portions. Others get minimized…like cover letters? Just when I thought I knew everything there was to know about writing cover letters (not really), I started seeing references to e-notes. Apparently, we now have to start thinking in terms of the old quote about “less is more” with regard to cover letters. So, hello, e-notes! Difference between a Cover Letter and an E-Note As...
