  Can Your Boss Count on You?
by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2012
You know what I've realized in my tenure as a manager? The number one quality I appreciate most in a direct report is reliability. By reliable, I mean a person who says she is going to do something, and then actually does it in the agreed-upon manner. You’d think this one would be kind of a no brainer for employees, especially when it comes to the boss who hands out the paychecks. But time and time again, in both my perso...
 
  If Bubba Were a CEO...
by Suzanne Bates - Apr, 2012
So I am watching TV, I think it was ESPN, and they have hauled out an old 2010 interview with Bubba Watson, the improbable and irrepressible winner of this year's utterly unpredictable Masters Tournament. Bubba is smiling, hitting shots off the staged practice area, and telling a story about how he once demo'd a new golf club by playing an entire round with only that club. He shot a 77. "I figured after that it was worth putti...
 
  Premature Escalation?
by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2012
A few years ago, I was finishing up a project at the agency where I worked part time. My colleague and I had been working closely with another internal team on this initiative for a while and fortunately, things were going relatively smoothly. As the vice president overseeing the project, I always tried to be responsive to the internal team’s needs, knowing that they represented the best interests of the client. My colleag...
 
  Sharing Your Wisdom
by Suzanne Bates - Apr, 2012
I was on a panel at the National Speakers Association where the moderator posed this question: "As a business owner, how do you allocate your time to be sure you are doing the right thing?" If you lead an organization of any size, that is THE question, isn't it? It was a lay-up for me. Not because I always get it right. But because I actually have a formula that works. Years ago, when I was starting my company, I didn...
 
  What is the Key to Finding Joy in a Job You Hate?
by Cathy Eng - Apr, 2012
I was listening to a popular morning talk show on the radio the other day and something someone said struck me (and is still staying with me a week later). When the host asked a caller what he had planned for the day, the caller answered begrudgingly, “Man, they’ve got me drivin’ these trucks.” His answer was dripping with self-pity and resentment of his plight. Immediately and without hesitation, the host chimed in, “Nobody h...
 
  What is Your Advantage Really?
by Alexandra Levit - Apr, 2012
You probably already know that I am a huge fan of Pat Lencioni. I first met Pat when I wrote about him in the WSJ in 2009 and have devoured his various fables about executives jockeying for key positions and striving for self-actualization in fictional American companies. This week, Pat has released his first nonfiction business book, The Advantage. In it, he argues that the difference between successful companies and me...
 
  Joe Quits His Job: A Cautionary Tale of Transition
by Emily King - Apr, 2012
This is a true story. A career military officer – let’s call him Joe for simplicity’s sake – retires after 20 years of service with a valuable and highly marketable skill set. Joe receives several offers early in his job search. He accepts one based on his interest in the work, the small size of the company (that would allow him to grow with it), and salary among other factors. Two months into his employment Joe is happy with...
 
  Leadership’s Link to Emotional Intelligence
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Apr, 2012
Ever wonder why some of the most brilliant, well-educated people aren’t promoted, while those with fewer obvious skills climb the professional ladder? Chalk it up to emotional intelligence (EI), a term first coined in 1995 by psychologist Daniel Goleman in his New York Times bestseller Emotional Intelligence. In the United States, experts had assumed that high IQ was key to high performance. Decades of research now point to...
 
  Online Missteps Can Hurt Your Career and Job Search Success
by Georgia Adamson - Apr, 2012
I’ve written before about the need to be careful about what you post online–in any forum, social media site, etc.–because of the potentially harmful effect it can have on your career and/or job search success. I’ve also noted that you need to be aware of what others might be saying about you online, because sometimes you aren’t the one posting the possibly damaging information. Now comes yet another beating of that drum, in th...
 
  Purpose-Driven Leadership – Focus on What Matters
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Apr, 2012
People strive to be engaged in meaningful work. Humans, by nature, are a passionate species, and most of us seek out stimulating experiences. Companies that recognize this and actively cultivate and communicate a worthwhile corporate purpose become employers of choice. A major Gallup Organization research study identified 12 critical elements for creating highly engaged employees. About half deal with employees’ sense of...
