For Higher Morale, Think Maslow
by David Lee - Feb, 2010
More specifically, if you want higher employee morale and greater employee engagement, think of Maslow's "other hierarchy." Awhile back, I heard Gary Hirschberg, CEO of Stonyfield Farm, refer to Maslow’s Hierarchy of…Grumbles. I laughed, thinking he had put an amusing spin on Dr. Maslow’s famous hierarchy. To my surprise, when I returned home and scanned The Farther Reaches of Human Nature, I discovered he actually wrote ab...
Work Life Balance ~ The Little Things That Help You Stay Up!
by Keri Coffman-Thiede - Feb, 2010
Try this...stand on one foot. Go ahead – I’ll wait. Now notice what that’s like. Balance is not a stagnant action. Matter of fact, if you stiffen up and don’t allow yourself the tiny motions it takes to constantly maintain balance, you’ll fall right over. Try it. I’ll wait. Balance in life is the same way. It’s about doing the little things that help you stay up that influence how “on or off” balance you feel. Balan...

According to the report: “Those who reported they had been very bored were two and a half times more likely to die of a heart problem than those who hadn’t reported being bored,” AP reports and cites comments from cardiologist Chri...
Your 5-Step Method for Defining Job Satisfaction
by Rob Taub - Feb, 2010
The question was asked: How do I pick my major if I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up? Answer: Start with the end in mind. As with writing a speech, you determine what your objective is and what it is you hope to instill in your audience, and only THEN do you begin to write your speech. Make sense? Same with job searching and too, picking a major, internships, related clubs and activities, and more: You begin with...
Help Them Help You!
by Harry Urschel - Feb, 2010
Most people understand the importance of networking when looking for a job, however, few do it effectively. People tell me their networking conversations or meetings are awkward and rarely produce anything meaningful. When I dig a little deeper, I often find that they expect their networking contacts to somehow just know what to do. Most people would love to help you, but have no idea how they can. It’s up to you to help th...
How to Keep Your Thank-You Note Out of the Trash
by Karen Burns - Feb, 2010
You’ve heard it a million times: Always send a thank-you letter after a job interview. So it may surprise you to learn that some hiring managers don’t like receiving these letters. It’s a waste of their time, they say. Sounds a little curmudgeonly, doesn’t it? But maybe it’s because so many thank-you letters are a waste of time--theirs, and ultimately, yours, too. Are you using your letters just to say “thanks for the inter...
Is Your Resume a Used Car Salesman?
by Louise Fletcher - Feb, 2010
Don’t we all dread buying a car? The hype, the evasions, the glib sales pitch...it all just reeks of desperation. Hiring a new employee can often feel the same way. One resume after another, all filled with hype and smooth sales talk, all with the faint whiff of desperation. By glib sales talk, I mean cliched ‘resume speak.’ The stuff you see on everybody else’s resume. Like this... Accomplished 10-year veteran with e...
Establishing and Maintaining Leader Behavior
by Ford R. Myers - Feb, 2010
Are you a leader? A leader generates his or her own opportunities. Leaders don’t whine and complain about the lack of opportunities to develop their careers. They CREATE opportunities – regardless of their current situation, regardless of their current boss, regardless of obstacles that may seem to stand in the way of developing their full potential. The following information is adapted from The 7 Hidden Reasons Employee...
Lonely at the Top: What Are You Going to Do About It?
by Suzanne Bates - Feb, 2010
I’m not one to preach when it comes to finding people to help me. Prior to launching my business ten years ago I was a television reporter so I didn’t make decisions that had an impact on other people. I was surrounded by people all day long, in the newsroom and on my assignments, so I certainly didn’t feel lonely. Once you start a business or get promoted to run something, everything changes. I would guess most leaders...
How Employers Behave When There Are More Workers Than Jobs
by Ford R. Myers - Feb, 2010
When there are many more workers than job openings, employers behave differently than they do in a healthy employment market. This is largely because the locus of control shifts from candidates to employers, and employers will have the sense that they can “call the shots.” These dynamics can pose serious challenges for job seekers.
