Over the years, a number of my coaching clients have expressed a desire to improve their public speaking abilities – especially if they’re being called upon to make presentations at work. For many, speaking in front of a live audience is a daunting proposition. Some clients have admitted to feeling like “a deer in the headlights” when speaking to groups. As someone who gives presentations regularly, I can say, from exper...
In Praise of the Walking Meeting
by Caroline Dowd-Higgins - Dec, 2014
I always appreciate a well-run meeting, and, these days, many of the meetings I attend are not only well run, but well-walked too. I’ve recently become a devotee of walking meetings, and I join an ever-growing contingent dedicated to getting up and out of the office to meet on-the-move. Feet First, a website that promotes walkable communities, traces the walking meeting back to Ancient Greece and Aristotle’s peripatetic...
Career Advice I’d Give My Younger Self
by Bernie Frazier - Dec, 2014
I officially started my career on June 13, 1989 (wow, I can’t believe it’s been that long…and I remember the date!). I worked as a Sales Representative for an international Consumer Packaged Goods company. Shortly after I began, I was placed on a recruiting team. For the next almost 25 years, recruiting, training and speaking played major to exclusive roles in my work. During this same 25 years, my career weaved from co...
Career Change: Is Now the Time?
by Georgia Adamson - Dec, 2014
Recently I published a post about midlife (or other) career change. Related to that is the situation that too many people face–being in a lousy (read: toxic) work situation that clearly isn’t going to get substantially better soon, if ever. During this year-end holiday period, you might benefit from carving out at least some time to consider your current work environment and decide whether it’s great from start to finish, s...

As a result, I have developed a list of favorite career tools from which to draw ideas and better serve my clients.

5 Ways to Survive a Bad Day
by Melody Wilding - Dec, 2014
Lousy days happen to all of us. Even a seemingly harmless wake-up-on-the-wrong-side-of-the-bed morning can send you into a funk. No matter how many happiness hacks or positive mantras you try to make it better, it can be hard to shake your grouchiness and glass-half-empty attitude. And when a bad mood follows you to work, it can amplify all sorts of everyday annoyances and frustrations. Now, perhaps you’re not able to ho...
Are You Following Your Company’s Hidden Rules?
by Terri Tierney Clark - Dec, 2014
Every company has an unwritten set of rules. These are the rules that no one reveals; you just have to figure them out on your own. But it’s important that you do or you may be judged by your colleagues. At my company, I learned quickly that the junior employee picks up the tab for client dinners, taxis, and tips. I wasn’t unusually perceptive; my boss hoisted several restaurant bills on me so I clued-in. As I became more s...
