Restoring Your Joy in Job Search
by Jacqui Barrett-Poindexter - Feb, 2010
Joy was palpable as the oversized airplane plane descended onto the tiny tropical landing strip. The pilot forcefully applied brake pressure, wings wobbled and dear, flying-averse hubby squeezed his fingers tightly into my arm as the plane safely landed. Applause erupted and a plane-FULL of passengers, many of whose travel had been delayed several days due to winter storms, were elated to finally embark on their Key West adve...
What To Do When You Are Discouraged About Your Job Search
by Miriam Salpeter - Feb, 2010
• What do you do when you’re really, really, really discouraged about your unsuccessful job search? • How do you overcome the negative aspects of job search? It breaks my heart when I hear from a job seeker who reaches out to me after hunting unsuccessfully for a job for months – even a year or more. More often than not, it is clear to me why the person’s job hunt has gone on for so long. Either the resume and job search m...

by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Feb, 2010

But when I ask some of these people how they will implement their plan, their reasons for not moving forward begin to flow. Their reasons vary. Some people tell me they are too old. Some are too young. Some have the wrong education or not enough. Some have too much experience, while others don't have a...
Customer Service as Horror Story - Give It The Boot
by Dawn Lennon - Feb, 2010
Ever wonder if really bad customer service is a conspiracy? Or is bad service just about poor leadership? I had to break my foot to find out. On a very hot summer morning, I was trying to teach a strong-willed colt of mine to walk nicely when being led. Instead he’d take two steps and rear. I would dodge his feet and try again. Well, my luck ran out. Up he went and down he came, digging his hoof into the outside of my le...
One Big Lesson From The Olympics For Your Job Search
by Harry Urschel - Feb, 2010
There have been a few articles I’ve seen using the Olympics to make a point related to a job search. However, I believe there’s one point that’s been fascinating to me but lost in many of the other discussions.

Three Ways to Tame Your Email (and get back in the zone)
by Rebecca Ryan - Feb, 2010
Since so much email is poorly contructed, it becomes our job as recipients to distill the meaning of the email. (Am I the only person who’s annoyed that anyone can send me an email, and then it’s my job to figure out what the hell they want?) Email’s not going away, so we may as well learn to domesticate it, so that it purrs like a kitten in our lap. Here are three ideas to help you tame your interoffice email. 1. Use ...
When is the Right Time to Tell a Secret? (Shhhh don't tell anyone)
by Gary Cohen - Feb, 2010
How can you be telling me this now? I was counting on you! If you had only told me this when you first knew! I can't believe you waited this long! It's never fun learning a secret that's been kept from you. It's not fun holding onto a secret either that will leave others (coworkers, friends, loved ones) disappointed and, in all likelihood, angry. When, if ever, is it a good idea to keep secrets? And when is the best ...

by Suzanne Bates - Feb, 2010
The other day I was working with a client who is about to roll out a two year strategy for her functional area in the business.
