15 Trust Building Communication Practices
by Nan S. Russell - May, 2013
One thing is clear - communication has changed. Some leaders remain wishing and hoping for the way things were, with top down approaches and controlled messaging. But, it doesn't matter what you think of anonymous blog comments, social media avenues, texting, tweeting, or video posting; technology that provides instant access to alternative points of view and influence is here to stay. Unfortunately, more ways doesn't mean mor...
Job Success: Make Others Look Great
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2013
Regardless of what you do on the job and when you’re pursuing a new job or career role, quality obviously matters. You certainly wouldn’t knowingly give less than your best to the situation. In fact, if you’re seriously invested in your job success or career advancement, you’re probably making a strong effort to excel in terms of quality performance. Is there something else you should be doing? Quite possibly. Your Success...
How to Be More Optimistic at Work
by Alexandra Levit - May, 2013
I was born a pessimist. From a young age, my thoughts have gravitated to the glass half-empty mentality, negatively impacting my own life satisfaction and my relationships with others. Over the last several years, though, I’ve been working to change my outlook. Dr. Noelle Nelson, the author of Make More Money By Making Your Employees Happy, thinks this is definitely a good thing. Research from Yale University found...
The Recipe for Success in Any Job
by Ron Riggio - May, 2013
Just like successful cooking, the ingredients make all the difference. In any job, there is a recipe for success. The recipe for job success calls for having the right “ingredients” (your personal characteristics), and putting them together in the right way. The ingredients for job success are these: Competence, Conscientiousness, Commitment, and a dash of Positive Politics. Competence. Although this sounds obvious, bein...
Speaking It Into Existence Isn’t As Important As This
by Rich Jones - May, 2013
Positive affirmations ain’t never hurt nobody. But inaction has. I wish I could tell you how many times over the years I’ve tried “speaking it into existence.” I’ve made proclamations to the man in the mirror or to a close friend, which resulted in a “[Hell] yeah!” or “Go be great.” Then I’d swagger away — enthusiasm and endorphins flowing — intent on taking the world by storm before falling into old habits like tv and t...
Writing for Readability
by Jill Kurtz - May, 2013
Can your readers understand what you have written? This is a bigger challenge than you might think. The 2003 national Adult Literacy Survey found that 43 percent of Americans rank at a basic or below basic level for prose literacy and 34 percent were at those levels for document literacy. Of course, not all audiences will represent the national averages. When gauging the comprehension of your target readers, consider facto...
The 5 Biggest Myths About Networking
by Pete Leibman - May, 2013
If you’re getting ready for graduation, or if you’ve already graduated but you’re looking for a new job, you probably know you need to spend a lot of time networking. But, do you really know what networking is and what it’s not? During my teenage years, I was painfully shy, and I thought networking was a practice used only by the elite and powerful, a group I definitely did not feel part of. What I learned was the opp...
Make Different Choices In Your Career
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - May, 2013
Your career is filled with choices. Some of them will empower you, and others will hold you back. Wherever you are now in your career, you have arrived there by choice. Maybe your choice was something you chose outright. Or, you chose not to choose, which was also a choice. Either way, if you are unhappy in your career, you must realize that your choices have contributed to your unhappiness. Of course, no-one intentio...
Career Success: Sharpen Your Focus
by Georgia Adamson - May, 2013
Few people can do a zillion things at once, and even fewer can do them well. Career success and the actions that achieve it are just one example of that fact. You might consider yourself a super-multitasker, but I’m betting you don’t do it as well as you think. You only have a certain amount of energy (although some of you have more than others), not to mention a limited amount of time. Even the best of you can’t get more than...
Your Guide to Applying for a Job in 150 Characters or Less
by Jen Glantz - May, 2013
The days of lengthy cover letters and bulleted resumes are fading as employers ask job applicants to present their case in a modern and challenging way—by describing themselves and why they are a perfect fit for a job in 150 characters or less. Borrowing from the style of Twitter (which maxes out at 140 characters) and similar to a quick-and-to-the-point elevator pitch, this new request forces you to carefully select wor...
