Writing Great Career Stories and Accomplishments on Your Resume
by Jessica Holbrook Hernandez - Jul, 2016
If you want a chance at a good job, tell a story. No, I’m not talking about “Once upon a time,” or “In a land far away.” What I mean is a story that tells about who you are, what you have done with your career so far, and what you can bring to a new position. C.A.R. Stories What I am asking you to do is create a CAR story. It stands for Challenges, Actions, and Results. In short, what you do is look back over your car...
 
  The 4 Kinds of Workers
by Andy Rasico - Jul, 2016
I once heard a speaker talk about the differing work ethics people have and it has stuck with me to this day. Through experience, I subtly developed my own classifications of workers in an effort to grow professionally. Think of it as self-improvement – we should always be trying to better ourselves at home, work, and anywhere else. Something I’ll never forget from that speaker was the moment I learned I wasn’t a #1 ty...

  Why Not Mess Up A Good Thing?
by Marshall Goldsmith - Jul, 2016
We rarely get credit for not messing up a good thing. A number of years ago, a politician put it this way, “The most thankless decision I make is the one that prevents something bad from happening, because I can never prove that I prevented something even worse!” Because there’s no big show of change, there’s no shiny, new object when you make the decision to preserve something, most people rarely ask themselves “What in my...
 
  A Rewarding Career - Can It Be Yours?
by Georgia Adamson - Jul, 2016
Rewards are what make you feel that a major effort was worthwhile.

The question is, Can you have what you would consider a rewarding career and, if so, what would you need to do to achieve it? No Rewards Without Risk The odds are...
 
  Desperate For a Different Career? Change It, But Avoid These Top 5 Blunders
by Kathy Caprino - Jul, 2016
Before 9/11, I felt trapped in a 18-year corporate career that didn’t align with my values, preferences, talents and desires. But I had worked so hard to create success and recognition in it that I was, simply speaking, scared to death to let it go. After a long while, serious crises began to hit, one after the other, and I finally got the message that I needed to make a change, and fast. So I sought outside help – a therap...
 
  Image Impacts Your Brand
by Debra Wheatman - Jul, 2016
Many people conflate “image” with “personal brand,” when, in reality, they are two separate things. Your personal brand is the experience that people have with you, and the story you tell about who you are and what you do. Your image is your visual representation, and it is a crucial component of your brand. Before social media, you wouldn’t know what your client, doctor, or prospect looked like until you arrived at your firs...
 
  Do You Have One of Those Time-Waster Personalities?
by Alexandra Levit - Jul, 2016
When I met Dana Brownlee, the founder of corporate training company Professionalism Matters, we got to talking about time wasting habits. It turns out that certain types of people are actually prone to ineffective time management. Being the productivity nut that I am, I naturally probed a bit deeper on this one and asked Brownlee to describe her four personality types, and how to stop struggling if you have one of them....
 
  5 Great Leadership Risks
by Steve Farber - Jul, 2016
I wish I could tell you that there’s a clear-cut, linear path to becoming a leader, but there isn’t; instead, you’ll need to get comfortable with the uncomfortable-ness of learning from your personal successes and failures as you go. And by definition, your successes and failures are predicated on the risks you take. (A practice I like to call “Pursuing the OS!M.”) But this isn’t about taking irresponsible or arbitrary risks...
 
  A Coaching Conversation Checklist For Smart Managers
by Dr. Maynard Brusman - Jul, 2016
In spite of wide-spread coach training, most of the time managers aren't using coaching skills to grow and develop their people. Instead, many managers still believe in their role as a problem solver, cutting short conversations with employees by providing solutions, advice, and answers. Yet managers with a coaching style usually find that their employees are more committed, willing to put in greater effort, and are less l...
