Want to Get Heard? Say Less.
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2011
Did this ever happen to you? You’re in a meeting about a complex problem facing your work group. Everyone’s got their own idea about the cause and what to do about it. The discussion consists of: - Blaming bad decision-making or poor management - One-sided perspectives on the “real” factors obstructing a fix - Accusations about how no one cared about the situation until now - Seat-of-the-pants solutions...
Involve Others In Your Decision-Making
by Andy Robinson - Jul, 2011
Enhance the effectiveness of your decision-making by tapping the knowledge, input and perspective of others. Ask others: • "What do you think?" • "Who else would you recommend that I ask?" • "What am I missing?" • "Who will this decision affect?" As a leader, seeking the opinion of others communicates that their role is important, it conveys respect and appreciation, and it strengthens their bond with you...
Be a Compliment Columbo!
by Christine Hassler - Jul, 2011
When you hunt for things to acknowledge and celebrate in others, you will soon detect a greater level of appreciation for everything. “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”- Leo F. Buscaglia One of my favorite things to do out in the world is be what I call a...
How the unemployment rate SHOULD affect you
by Hallie Crawford - Jul, 2011
The WSJ's reporting on the unemployment rate for June and lower amount of jobs added last month: "Bad news for the U.S. economic recovery. New private-sector jobs barely outweighed government job losses, causing the unemployment rate to climb to 9.2 percent from 9.1 percent. It's the third straight month the jobless rate has risen, and unemployment is now at its highest level since December 2010. In total, the economy ad...

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...
Getting More Face Time for Your Job Search on Facebook
by Barbara Safani - Jul, 2011
Getting face time with networking contacts and hiring authorities just got easier. Facebook recently announced the launch of Skype-powered video chat and I’m predicting that this will be a huge boon to job seekers and hiring managers alike. Facebook claims collective usage of over 700 billion minutes per month and more than 700 million users and this presents a goldmine of opportunity for job seekers. With the new video cha...
Nurture Your Network
by Sherri Edwards - Jul, 2011
Networking is an active process. It requires engagement, follow through and follow up. With all of the technology in the world, it still requires time for planning, thinking and responding. If I had the talent, I would draw a picture of this example, but since words are my medium, this analogy will have to be represented without visuals. Imagine researching the web or purchasing books about putting in a lawn. You can learn...
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...
