A “We” Attitude
by Suzanne Bates - Dec, 2010
I once had an employee who took one of our new folks to a client meeting. When it was over, this veteran insisted they take the afternoon to go shopping and out to lunch. When the new employee raised an eyebrow and said perhaps they should get back to the office, the veteran cajoled her into compliance. ”Don’t worry,” this employee said, “It’s no big deal. You and I deserve this.” Please don’t get me wrong; we all goof...
3 Keys to Leadership Success
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Dec, 2010
I’ve learned over the years that my most effective executive coaching leadership clients know the “why” of what they are passionate in achieving.

by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Dec, 2010
“Find a niche! Get a niche. Work in a niche!” In his Nov. 22nd post called, “Over-Nicheing,“ Steve Spalding asserts, “We spend a lot of time extolling the unlimited virtues of nichedom, but we rarely think of its very real limitations.” Though he goes on to say you “should” have a niche in order to focus your attention, budget and creative resources at an audience who cares, he also warns that niches can be a trap if you ge...
Change Your Hiring POV to Eliminate 50 Percent of All Hiring Errors
by Lou Adler - Dec, 2010
I have a brilliant nephew — Harvard grad, etc., — who is, shall we say, a bit left of center. He has an executive position in the California state government, which is enough to further pinpoint his political persuasion. While I love him dearly, during the holiday season we have some rather contentious discussions regarding the politics of the moment, given I’m his somewhat right-of-center uncle. While civil, at least in most...

So, I was expecting, “I need a resume like yesterday.” Perhaps, “What is resume branding?” But, an outright “rebrand” —well! If I wasn’t already sitting… Why a Rebrand? You see, this careerist had developed a strong brand; earned a reputation as a ‘department savior.’ The problem? Most of the job offers were coming from companies in need of...

by Cathy Eng - Dec, 2010
Many of us have, even through no fault of our own, had a bumpy work history. This may be due to lay-offs, illnesses, temporary contractual work, staying home to raise children, career transitions, or a myriad of other situations.
