Are Your Sundays Spent Dreading Mondays?
by Joan Runnheim Olson - Sep, 2014
Do you enjoy your work? Are your Sundays spent dreading Mondays OR do you look forward to getting up each week day? Since yesterday was Labor Day, I thought this topic would be fitting. On average we spend 40 to 46 years of our life working. With work consuming a large chunk of our day and our life, why not be doing something we enjoy? For many people, little thought was put into their career choice. Some may think that wor...

Communicate with Power: Master the Unconscious
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Sep, 2014
Most communication is unconscious. You may think you’re delivering clear and consistent messages based on your words, but unconscious nonverbal behaviors are key to communicating with power. Startling advances in brain science have made it possible for us to gather and test evidence as we uncover the unconscious mind’s amazing strengths. While our conscious brains can handle some 40 bits of information per second, the unc...
Confidence Part II – Change Your Body, Change Your Mind
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Aug, 2014
You may recall the scenes in The Sound of Music where Julie Andrews, as Maria, is trying to summon her confidence as she prepares to interview for the governess post with the Von Trapp Family. I love Maria’s feisty, go-get-em attitude. She’s terrified, but she holds her fear at bay by dancing down the road taking big steps and making big, bold gestures – waving her guitar and satchel in the air as she sings “I have confiden...
The 411 on Informational Interviews
by Kristen Carter - Aug, 2014
One of the new networking strategies that you may have heard buzz about is informational interviews. This term was developed by Richard Nelson Bolles, author of What Color Is Your Parachute?, and its purpose is to gather information on a particular industry and/or specific company you may wish to work at one day. Think of it as an information gathering session, not an opportunity to ask for a job. This is an excellent strategy...
What Does Labor Day Mean to You?
by Carole Kanchier - Aug, 2014
What do enjoy doing on Labor Day? What does Labor Day mean to you? Labor Day is so much a part of our culture that we rarely pause to consider its purpose and meaning. Labor Day is often more associated with fairs and a long weekend, than its original meaning – affirmation of the dignity and worth of workers. Labor Day began in Canada in 1872, when the Toronto Trades Assembly organised the first significant workers' dem...
When It Comes to Time, Great Business Minds Don't Have to Think Alike
by Alexandra Levit - Aug, 2014
Do you think of time as flexible or a resource that can be wasted? Determine your business's time culture, and get your employees in line with your clock. 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 quit...
How My “Potential” Landed Me a Job
by Corinna Klawon - Aug, 2014
A few years ago I found myself bidding on a job that I thought was quite far out of reach. I was going for a Marketing Communications job that required strong verbal and written communication skills as well as the ability to be detail-oriented, read proofs and overall have a good sense of English grammar. On the other side, there was me…just finishing up my BS in Marketing and Management: young, inexperienced, and above all a...
Your Career and the Search for Talent
by Georgia Adamson - Aug, 2014
You might have heard the term “talent wars” or something similar, which generally refers to companies competing for top talent even when a lot of job seekers are unemployed (and some have been for an extended period). If you’ve been looking for a new job or trying to move out/up from your current job for a while, this whole concept of a talent shortage might seem almost laughable–except that no job seeker I know is laughing...
Update Your Resume Month
by Cheryl Lynch Simpson - Aug, 2014
Is your resume ready for that next great opportunity? If a recruiter or prospective employer called with an interesting opening, would you be poised to seize the moment?
