Are You a Creative Employee?
by Georgia Adamson - Aug, 2014
If you think you aren’t a creative employee, you might want to think again. And if you aren’t being creative in some way, can you change that? The tendency is to think of creative employees in terms of fields such as graphic arts, marketing communications, and such–in other words, either visual or written creativity that’s an essential aspect of the individual’s job. Those of you who don’t work in such fields might be convi...
Why Not to Force Yourself to Become a Morning Person
by Adrienne Erin - Aug, 2014
Some find happiness in the early morning hours when all is quiet and still; and then, of course, there’s you. Whether you cringe at the sound of your alarm clock or block out the sun’s first rays by placing a pillow directly over your head, one thing’s for certain: you are not a morning person. In the past, you might have wanted to — or had to — change your ways in order to be successful. Not anymore. In fact, many e...
The Ugly Truth about Following Up after an Interview
by Stacey Lane - Aug, 2014
Following up after an interview is tough. How much follow up is too much? Does the prospective employer even care if you send a thank you note? Is there even a point to following up? Time for a candid reality check… No one has ever received a job because he or she followed up. No one. Think about it — no hiring manager has ever said “John, I’m so glad you followed up with me. I was going to offer the job to another...
Can I Give You Some Feedback? YES PLEASE!!
by Corinna Klawon - Aug, 2014
It’s that time of the year again, where midyear conversations are being held and feedback forms are being gathered. If you are anything like me, then you also have those initial jitters of “oh dear...what will he/she say?” and, “How can I not make this mistake again?” For me, receiving personal feedback or criticism was something I had to learn how to process. We can tell ourselves that receiving feedback is just another perso...
How others can learn from Gen Y’s work/life balancing act
by Corinna Klawon - Aug, 2014
I stumbled upon an article that described what Millennials value the most when looking for a job, and an overwhelming majority prefers a job that allows them to have flexible hours and remote work locations for a healthier life/work balance. You ask why do we pursue that? – simply because we strive for self-contentment. For a long time, established magazines referred to us as the “Me, me, me” generation, which created this...
Stop the Busy-ness! Redefine Success on Your Terms
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Aug, 2014
We all love to talk about how busy we are. It means we’re needed. It means we have places to go and people to see, and it also means we may well be running ourselves into the ground. Blogger Guy Kawasaki went so far as to implore readers to ‘stop the glorification of busy’, and he’s so right. We wear our busy-ness like a badge of honor, and yet where does busy get us? Overscheduled, anxiety-ridden, tired and even sick. H...
Dressing Well for Work on a Budget
by Shun McGhee - Aug, 2014
I am the youngest of five children and grew up in what would be considered a lower-middle class family. While performing research for this blog, I found there is a large gap between lower middle class and upper middle class families. Rather than demonstrating the disparity with numbers, I thought it would be beneficial to describe using popular television shows. “The Cosby Show,” a house headed by a medical doctor and the othe...
Changing a Negative Mindset and Culture
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Jul, 2014
I’ve learned over the past thirty years that my most effective executive coaching leadership clients know the “why” of what they are passionate in achieving. They get excited in my office telling me inspiring stories of their hopes and struggles. They have a growth versus fixed mindset, and are optimistic and forward thinking. One of my executive coaching clients shared a personal story with me that he was struggling to...
Stressed at Work? Read Your Desk Calendar
by Jessica Stasiw - Jul, 2014
I fully embrace technology, really I do! There are times though that just holding a tangible item, like a book or a piece of paper, helps me feel at ease. To keep your sanity you need to have something that will put things into perspective when the room won’t stop spinning. For me, it’s a simple desk calendar that I bought at the local Barnes & Noble. Every year I go after Christmas and I sift through the clearance cale...
What to Do When You Run Out of Work to Do
by Adrienne Erin - Jul, 2014
Most of us work like machines throughout the day, charging forward without stopping for a breath. You keep pushing to meet deadlines and not fall behind, and now all of that hard work has paid off. Why you ask? Well, because you have been so diligent that you’ve run out of work to do. Now you can relax, right? Sure, take a moment to breathe and bask in your accomplishment, but now is not the time to twiddle your thumbs....
