by Laura Smith-Proulx - Jun, 2010
If you've added achievements to your resume, but still feel it doesn’t represent you, it might be time to ratchet things up a notch to get results. A concept called the S-T-A-R (Situation/Task-Action-Result) strategy is a popular and effective method of eliciting and sharpening the information for a resume. It’s aptly named for a reason – your resume must include a description of the situation or task itself! Note: there...
Why People Want Independent Financial Advisors
by Douglas Bolter - Jun, 2010
Times have changed – and so have financial advisors. Today, people don’t want financial advice from a salesman.

Clueless Leadership! Can You Bear It? The Perils of Non-Communication
by Dawn Lennon - Jun, 2010
Do I have to say it too? “Communication is the backbone of good leadership.” Hasn’t it been said enough already? Aren’t there enough books, training programs, and speeches out there to drive home the point? Then why are so many people in leadership positions clueless? Why don’t they communicate well, at the right time, and with the right message? It must be faulty wiring. There seem to be four extremes. Leaders who:...

by Barbara Giamanco - Jun, 2010
There is fair amount of buzz about a concept called “social selling” (often used synonymously with Sales 2.0, a term coined and trademarked by Nigel Edelshain).
