  • Asking for a Raise
    by Mary Jeanne Vincent - April 25, 2017
    Timing can be a key factor when asking for a raise. Here are five excellent opportunities to ask for a raise. The first obvious opportunity is during your annual performance review, provided you have met or exceeded expectations. You should approach your yearly evaluation with the same preparation you would make when interviewing for a new job. In a sense, you are re-interviewing for your current position. Complete the p...
  • I'll Tell You, But Only Off The Record
    by Debra Wheatman - April 25, 2017
    If you have ever been through media training, one thing you come away with is the indisputable fact that nothing is ever “off the record.” You might request that it be, but that doesn’t mean that your audience, or your eavesdroppers, are compelled to comply with your wishes. “Off the record” has gone the way of the 3-martini lunch. We may not like it, but we have no choice but to deal with it....
  • Professional Resume Writing: Your Future Depends on It
    by Michelle Dumas - April 25, 2017
    You Consult a Professional for Everything Else in Your Life When you are sick, you go to the doctor. When it’s time to pay your taxes, you go to an accountant or tax service. When you need legal advice, you go to a lawyer. When your car breaks down, you bring it to an automotive technician. Professional resume writing? You may never have even thought of it. The biggest decision in your life is waiting,...
  • 7 Traits Of Inspiring Leadership That Uplifts Rather Than Destroys
    by Kathy Caprino - April 24, 2017
    In the leadership development work I do with mid- to high-level professionals, we begin by focusing on how to help each individual lead his or her own personal life in more positive and enlivening ways. You can’t lead anything well (including others, projects, growth, or organizational behavior) if you’re not honest, brave, emotionally self-aware and mentally healthy. After all, you’re a person when you show...
  • Do You Love What You Do?
    by Steve Farber - April 24, 2017
    How do you know if you love what you do for a living? It’s a simple question that seems straight-forward enough, but it’s not always easy to answer. Many people would instinctively say something like, “I just know” or “I can just feel that it’s right” or “I definitely know the opposite – when I don’t love what I do.” Those aren’t wrong answers, they&...
  • Everything Old Is New Again
    by Stacey Lane - April 24, 2017
    I’ve been walking several times a week with a friend. We hike through the hills in our neighborhood and at the end of the hour, I’ve easily gotten 90+ flights of stairs and 10,000 steps logged on my Fitbit. We chat the entire hour. We discuss politics, the economy, technology, work, family, new recipes we’ve tried and our weekend plans. We’re both self-employed so we often talk business strategy and wha...

  • The Art Of Giving And Receiving Feedback At Work
    by Lindsey Pollak - April 21, 2017
    Do you wonder if you’re giving your employees feedback that can help them excel at their jobs — and feel more included? Chances are, we could all improve at giving feedback at work. In fact, one survey found that 64 percent of employees wanted their supervisor to check in with them at least every two weeks. This desire for frequent, steady feedback has even been tied to the demise of the annual review. Who wants...
  • Video + Working From Home Sounds Great - Until Your Spouse Crawls Through The Background
    by Kris Dunn - April 21, 2017
    Working from home. It used to be great and still is for many of us, but there's a canary in the coal mine that's emerging that could take the joy out of your sweats/PJs/hat game. That thing? It's called video meetings. And it's increasingly required for the simplest of calls you need to take. The trend is positive. When you're working remote, you can take phone calls and be pretty absent, especially o...
  • 6 Triggers that Can Make or Break Your Success
    by Marshall Goldsmith - April 20, 2017
    What if you could control your environment so it triggered your most desired behavior and steered you toward success? This would mean that instead of blocking us from our goals, the environment would propel us toward them. Sounds ideal, doesn’t it? It also sounds far-fetched. It’s not. To achieve “control” of the environment so it triggers our most desired behavior, we must first clarify the term tri...
