  The Next One
by Nan S. Russell - Dec, 2009
As a frequent conference speaker, I take advantage of other presentations when my schedule allows. So I was delighted, with three hours to spare before heading to the airport, to hear best selling author of "Built to Last," Jim Collins, address a group. It was the story he told about interviewing management guru, Peter Drucker, that I've thought of several times since. It stayed with me partially because I'm a Drucker fan,...

  Staying Mentally Focused
by Randy Wooden - Dec, 2009
The Triad’s first quarter, 2010, hiring outlook is not encouraging. Similar forecasts abound throughout the nation. What’s a job hunter to do? First, maintain a positive attitude, particularly when in an interview. Allowing frustration and desperation to seep through doesn’t help your cause. And while the media preaches gloom and doom, remember it only takes one qualified yes to end your journey. Just as salesmen can...

Job changes occur more and more frequently and career changes are more common than ever before. We are no longer "Who we wor...
  Eight Tips for Maximizing Your Value as a Business Professional
by Andy Robinson - Dec, 2009
Zig Ziglar, one of my all time favorite motivational speakers and a great source of inspiration, was one of the first people I remember who used the term "Sharpening the Saw" to refer to keeping your COMPETITIVE EDGE sharp and mastering the process of LIFELONG LEARNING and professional development. Today, more than ever, it is critical that we continue to "Sharpen the Saw" -- to improve upon our strengths, shore up our weak...
  Five Tips for Evaluating a Role as a Board Member - Choose Wisely

Being asked to join the board of a community, professional or business organization certainly can be a boost to the ego. But, to make sure you say "Yes" for the right reasons, ask yourself these five questions, recommended by some seasoned board members: 1. "What do I bring to the table? How will I add value as a board member?" Is it knowledge of your field, financial savvy, existing business relationships, or somethin...
  Heads Up! You Already ARE In Business For Yourself
by Andy Robinson - Dec, 2009
A Preamble to Today's Article In the earlier part of my career, I was a CPA with the firm now known as PricewaterhouseCoopers ("PwC"). I quickly gravitated into PwC's highly profitable corporate finance consulting practice as a Director in the firm's Atlanta office, where I spent 10 years specializing in Financial Advisory Services to Fortune 500 companies. The last 15 years of my work life have been oriented around my new...
  Nine Ways to Think Like An Owner (a.k.a. How to Advance Your Career)
by Andy Robinson - Dec, 2009
Whether you work for a global corporation, a small business, or for yourself, it is absolutely essential that you THINK and ACT like an “owner” – “own” your job, own your role as a leader or manager, own your roles and responsibilities — put yourself in the shoes of a business owner, and think and behave as any owner would do. This is not new advice; many of us have heard this before, and many of us have probably given this a...

  Ten Ideas for Keeping Your Skills Transferable and Broadening Your Career Options
by Andy Robinson - Dec, 2009
I read an interesting article in the New York Times discussing a situation faced by all too many laid-off employees -- having been in an specific job area or industry area for a number of years developing a set of skills that end up being limited in terms of transferability or "usability" in a new job or new career. Many of these individuals find themselves unable to land a new job, sometimes being unemployed for extended per...
