You Are What You Accomplish
by Bob Roth - Mar, 2015
It is not how hard we work at something; rather, it's all about the results we achieve. Employers hire people who can get things done well. Because activity without results amounts to little, we know that results are more important than activity alone. Example: Let's say that you volunteer to lead a fundraising drive for your favorite charity. You and your team work sixteen hours a day for twenty-one straight days, in an...
Your best work adventures may begin when you stop worrying about status
by Beverly Jones - Mar, 2015
It's normal to want respect from our colleagues. In his classic theory of human motivation, psychologist Abraham Maslow identified the need for esteem as a basic driver of human behavior. And leaders understand how important it can be for team members to feel accepted and valued by the group. At work, the desire to look like a winner can keep us hustling when we secretly want to just throw in the towel. And praise and appr...
5 Quick Quips for an Impactful Professional Presence
by Valerie Sokolosky - Mar, 2015
Here are quick quips (try and say THAT five times in a row) that I share during each Professional Presence program.

At those times, just stop and consider – “if I’m doubting whether to say something or not…maybe it’s best not to!”...

There’s no doubt that job-hunting in this economy can be challenging and bills must be paid, however conducting a job search from a place of fear rather than strength doesn’t always add up to success or satisfaction in the workplace.

Why Quitting is So Hard – Especially If You’re a Winner
by Stacey Lane - Mar, 2015
It’s hard for me to quit something. I keep trying to make things work – jobs, relationships, a broken door handle, whatever. I stay focused on making things work way too long past the freshness expiration date. I guess this makes me a bad quitter. Despite me knowing this about myself, I find it hard to give up on something. “If I just try doing it this way, it might work…” Great if you’re doing a team building challenge wit...
Resume Dilemma: You Have Too Much to Offer
by Robin Schlinger - Mar, 2015
An IT professional responded to one of my blog posts by stating that he contributes so much to his company that his experience bursts the bounds of a resume. He was not overqualified so much as over-experienced. He offered too much value to an employer. Someone who brings too much value to a company usually falls into one or more of the following categories. First, while their job title has not changed, they have taken on m...

by Alexandra Levit - Feb, 2015

Which Direction will the OFCCP Steer its Theory of Steering?
by Soul Cherradi - Feb, 2015
Many things have been written and debated in 2014 about the OFCCP’s (Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs) renewed interest in the “theory of steering” that the agency re-introduced in Directive 307. While the OFCCP critics have accepted that the theory of steering is adequate for selection claims, they continue to consider its application to compensation claims as inappropriate at best.
