Executive Wisdom - The 8 Traps of High Achievers
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Jul, 2011
I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients – the president of a professional services firm. We talked about how he was driven to achieve his goals and addicted to perfection. My executive coaching client and I discussed how it is more important to focus on success and fulfillment than perfection. I am coaching my client to overcome the eight traps of high achievers, and focus mor...
Top 10 Tweets... Untwisted
by Kimberly Schneiderman - Jul, 2011
Twitter is a great tool for coaches like me. I can give off the cuff bits of advice and insight in just a few seconds to all my followers on Twitter, fans on Facebook, and contacts on LinkedIn. As a general rule, I tweet about 3 times per day Monday through Thursday. Sometimes you’ll even see a tweet on a Friday or a Saturday if I come across something really good. The only problem is, well, I’m limited in space and someti...
How are you asking for help?
by Dawn Bugni - Jul, 2011
I received the following via email a few Fridays ago: “Good Afternoon, I am currently unemployed and for the past few months I have been trying to present better ways to get my resume points of view across to recruiters. I have been trying to co-mingle value based information and actual job duties that I have done. When I do that it seems to create sort of a “laundry list” of my duties and I am trying to stay away from t...

The #1 Way to Be a Great Employee
by Lindsey Pollak - Jul, 2011
In one of the first jobs of my career, I had a very hands-on, micromanaging boss. She frequently double- and triple-checked that I had completed even the smallest tasks. Not surprisingly, it kind of drove me crazy. Looking back, though, I consider that job to be one of my best learning experiences in professionalism, attention to detail and—most importantly—the art of “managing up.” When people talk about management, the...
If You’re Not Going to be Genuine, Don’t Bother
by Louise Fletcher - Jul, 2011
Not long ago, I was invited to join a brand new business social networking site. Because I like the person who sent the invite, I clicked ‘yes’ and signed up. But having looked around, I decided it was much too early stage to spend time on. For the last 3 days, I’ve received an email from the site founder. The first one thanked me for signing up and made reference to the fact I’m a resume writer. I thought that was a nice t...

It’s not a cure for anything, but a perpetuator. Who’s...

by Kesi Stribling - Jul, 2011
The movie Horrible Bosses pulled in $28.3 million during its premier weekend. That should come as no surprise as the summer heat beckons us to cooler environments. Movie theaters are the perfect place to enjoy a little humor while keeping cool. The draw, however, was not solely the promise of frigid air for a few hours. Folks flocked to the big screen comedy to gain a glimpse into the characters’ world of horrible bosses – and...
Hungry for Leadership Success? Whip Up a Batch of Principles
by Dawn Lennon - Jul, 2011
Serve them to your employees. They’re as hungry for success as you are. Employees know the drill: They’re expected to deliver specific results for which they’re compensated. The better they perform, the more likely their careers will advance. When they understand what matters to their bosses, they can perform with minimal uncertainty. Bosses who aren’t clear about what drives their leadership and who act inconsistently...
