What is Your Time Culture?
by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2015
In her book The Culture Map, global workplace expert Erin Meyer talks about one particular keynote speech she had to give to an audience in Brazil. Her remarks were slated to last 60 minutes, but the client said she could take all the time she needed. Meyer didn’t quite believe him. After all, during just about any keynote address in America, you can expect a firm index card countdown: “10 minutes remaining” “5 min...

by Louise Garver - Feb, 2015
There are plenty of smart, successful executives who struggle with finding a new position and/or a satisfying career. If your job search isn’t working, it’s time to do something different. First don’t think of it as setting out to “find” a job which assumes fitting into an existing job that may or may not be a good match. Treat this as a career discovery project, with defined objectives, an action plan, and a timeline. Ask som...

by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Feb, 2015
Are you part of the under management epidemic, or are you a truly engaged manager? You may think you’re a good boss, but a recent survey reports 9 out of 10 managers are providing insufficient oversight—a problem that consultant Bruce Tulgan calls the “under-management epidemic.” Ten years ago, research from Rainmaker Thinking, Inc., confirmed an epidemic of workplace under-management.

Is Your Fear Of Changing Jobs On This List?
by Stacey Lane - Feb, 2015
Let’s talk about the other F word. Fear. As you can probably imagine, there are days when I need a Teflon suit to deflect my clients’ fears. Even the most self-aware clients have moments of sheer panic. Fear shows up. It’s just part of careers. It’s that simple. On good days, I’m a curious and non-attached observer of fear. On bad days, I get sucked into the fear vortex and find myself obsessing about my own career success...
Use This Simple Brain Technique to Get Your Next Job
by Jean Cummings - Feb, 2015

It's not enough just to have a goal, although that appears to be critical for success in job search as in just about everything else. It's also important to paint a picture in your mind of what your goal would look like, feel like...
Are You Setting New Managers Up for Success?
by Lindsey Pollak - Feb, 2015
Last winter I started doing yoga. As someone who is not naturally coordinated, calm or interested in chanting, I had no idea what I was doing at the beginning. So I took some lessons. Then I worked my way up to classes. And now, a year later, I can occasionally hold a crow pose for three or four seconds and, according to my favorite teacher, my chaturangas are starting to “open up.” I’m getting better and I love it. Here’s...

by Louise Garver - Feb, 2015
If you are an executive searching for a new position, you may have heard that searching for a job is a sales process. Let’s examine this for a moment.

You Are the CMO of Your Job Search
by Lisa Rangel - Feb, 2015
How people market themselves directly impacts their job search because it’s no longer just about being qualified. The fact that you are qualified is a given at the executive stage, otherwise you wouldn’t have even made it so far. That’s why executives are now required to go above and beyond their qualifications and begin marketing themselves as viable candidates for the job. Unfortunately, even after being told about rec...
Being Busy Is Making You Sick: How to Recover as an Office Martyr
by Melody Wilding - Feb, 2015
Last week, I shared the concept of “office martyrdom” and explained why it’s an easy trap to fall into yet potentially very destructive. The office martyr considers themselves a victim, taking on extra work, staying late at the office, and giving nearly everything for their career, all the while complaining about the extra burden they supposedly have to bear. This can quickly turn into a vicious cycle of victimhood and alie...
