  Working for a Tough Boss
by Suzanne Bates - Jun, 2011
Shakespeare once said, “Heavy is the head that wears the crown.” If you are a boss you may feel frustrated when you get feedback that people perceive you as tough. Is tough a good thing, or not? In my book, being tough-minded is essential. That’s not the same as being a jerk. But if you aren’t focused and results oriented, you don’t belong in the job. Recently I came across an article on Boston.com with tips on dealing...
 
  Enough Already: Why Now is the Perfect Time to Pursue Your Career Dream
by Elizabeth Freedman - Jun, 2011
At some point you just have to make the call, stop hemming and hawing and decide that it’s time. At some point you have to stop getting ready to get ready to make the career change that you fully intend to do once you’re ready. You have to stop telling yourself that you will do it…once you’re not so busy/once you graduate/once the kids graduate/ once your closet is finally organized and life is perfect. Consider one study...
 
  Uncomplicated Leadership: Make it Easier to Get the Job Done
by Elizabeth Freedman - Jun, 2011
Unfortunately, making things complicated is easy to do. Take something pretty straightforward, like weight loss. I don’t know about you, but if you gave me a donut for every time someone said, “All you have to do to lose weight is eat less and exercise more,” I’d be up to my eyeballs in powdered sugar. I’d also hate to admit that something so challenging has a pretty simple solution, particularly after spending time and money...
 
  Want Better Results? Have Better Conversations
by Elizabeth Freedman - Jun, 2011
What would it mean to your business if¡­. Sales professionals had better conversations with prospects? Leaders had better conversations with clients? Managers had better conversations with their teams? Employees had better conversations with each other? It isn¡¯t any secret that it makes bottom-line sense to have great conversationalists within your organization. Did you know: ¡Ì Organizations who rate high on...
 
  Career Transition: Go Ahead and have a pity party
by Hallie Crawford - Jun, 2011
In one of my recent career coaching groups one of my clients, Anna, got on the call saying she’d had a tough week and was overwhelmed with her career research. She also had some personal issues she was dealing with. It all snowballed and ruined most of her week. She was asking us if that was normal, and when it would end. After we talked about how to better organize her career research, I gave her permission to have a pity par...
 
  College Graduates Need A Budget
by Bob Roth - Jun, 2011
When students graduate from college and begin to work and earn a salary, it makes sense for them to establish a budget. Unfortunately, that process can be both eye opening and frustrating. That is because most young adults will not earn enough money to pay for everything they think they need. “Budget: A mathematical confirmation of your suspicions.” -- A. A. Latimer The first realization will be that employees do not...
 
  Career Advice: Should you lie to your boss?
by Hallie Crawford - May, 2011
One of my career coaching clients, Robert, recently was wondering if he should tell his boss how unhappy he was at work. Robert had not been there very long but he was miserable, and pretty much ready to quit. Should you lie to your boss about whether you're happy at work? Almost all of my clients deal with this question. I will give you the same advice that I gave James. Being up front about your discontent at your job rea...
 
  How to be “Great on the Job,” a review
by Miriam Salpeter - May, 2011
Communication — and communicating well, in business and in all circumstances — is key for career success. It’s not always easy to know what to say, and it certainly isn’t always obvious how to say it. Jodi Glickman’s new book, Great On the Job, comes to the rescue. Known as a strong, strategic communicator with many successful examples to back up her words, Jodi, who’s landed jobs due to her interviewing skills, even though sh...
 
  Career Advice: Find The Action
by Hallie Crawford - May, 2011
I’ve been writing about this Wall Street Journal article, written by Dilbert, creator Scott Adams, How to Get a Real Education, for the past few weeks because it’s rich with good career advice. The last excerpt that I really liked is “Find the action.” In my senior year of college I asked my adviser how I should pursue my goal of being a banker. He told me to figure out where the most innovation in banking was happening and...
 
  Consciously Choose Better Work-Life Balance
by Heather Mundell - May, 2011
What kind of balance do you want to strike between your professional and your personal life? Harvard business blogger Ron Ashkenas wrote an article in December in the Harvard Business Review that a key to minimizing regret regarding your work-life balance (or lack thereof) is to consciously choose the tradeoffs you're willing to make to achieve personal and professional success. Absent that, we're likely over the years t...
