  Perception, Relationships and a Productive Career
by Debra Wheatman - Nov, 2009
Is it any wonder that the better you feel about yourself the more fulfilling your relationships are and the more empowered you feel in your work? It shouldn’t be! If you think about it, your own self-perception is the biggest driver of how others perceive you. It makes perfect sense that if you feel good, you project a positive and upbeat manner – other people area drawn to that. Human nature indicates that people like to be a...
  Plan B From Outer Space; Or What Do You Have In Case Your First Plan Doesn't Work?
by Debra Wheatman - Nov, 2009
What is your personal and professional Plan B? Do you have one? If something were to happen today leaving you unemployed, would you have a Plan B? Would you be able to quickly evaluate the situation and know what your next steps are to focus and solidify a new position? Have you been keeping notes regarding your accomplishments, understand your strengths and areas for improvement to keep upward momentum going? With the chan...
  Six Leadership Traits YOU (the Employee) Need to Develop On-the-Job
by Debra Wheatman - Nov, 2009
What makes for a great leader? Are leaders born, or can they be molded? Whether or not someone has the capacity to be a great leader, they still need to be molded and nurtured. Which means, EVERYONE, even if their job doesn’t have a leadership component right now, should consider developing their leadership skills. What are the traits that define leadership anyway? You asked. So, in a nutshell here they are: Vision: L...
  To Temp Or Not To Temp - That Is The Question
by Debra Wheatman - Nov, 2009
Working in a temporary position or on a contract assignment can be a great way to dip your big toe in the pool to see if you actually want to go for a swim. Frankly, I like the idea of temping – it’s try before you (potentially) buy. You can really get the ‘lay of the land’ and avoid buyer’s remorse that sometimes happens when you accept a position and then shortly thereafter decide that you hate it and made a mistake. You sho...
  You WILL Get Googled...Are You Afraid?
by Joshua Waldman - Nov, 2009
I like to tell my clients that they will be Googled just as surely as it will rain in Portland tonight. The latest survey revealed that 81% of employers WILL Google candidates. Do you know what they will see when they find you? Online reputation management is a critical piece of your job search. There is just no getting around it, no matter what field you are in. Quick story: When I Googled my name a year ago, I was a co...
  Seven Steps To An Open Door
by Rob Taub - Nov, 2009
The best way to introduce yourself to a company that doesn’t appear to be actively looking is to know the “What, where and how you can help the company”. I can give you a better-than-even chance to get the door to open to be able to introduce yourself, perhaps even create a job that is just right for you. It will take time and careful preparation but it will pay a dividend. Step 1 – Functional strengths: Begin by listing al...
  Start with Your Own Leadership Vision
by Beverly Jones - Oct, 2009
Lately I’ve been teaching quite a few seminars on leadership. Each time I start to put together a program for a new group, I rethink the best way to introduce the topic. There are so many great books out there (many of the 50 or so favorites reviewed on my website touch upon the topic). But leadership is like love – sometimes we know it when we see it, but it’s complex, slippery to define and challenging to study or teach....
  Continuous Learning, The Only Way To Avoid Becoming Dead Wood
by Bob Roth - Oct, 2009
It doesn’t matter very much what kind of job you have. The people, equipment, procedures and technology associated with your job are all changing. Importantly, all employees must understand that these four things will continue to change. That’s why employees must also continue to learn, grow and change. Today, there is a great need for accuracy, cost reduction, speed, quality and service. This is how companies compe...
  Stuck In A Career Rut?
by Deborah Brown-Volkman - Oct, 2009
Are you in a career that you dislike but you feel there is nothing you can do about it? Many of us stay in our careers (and jobs) longer than we want because we are unsure what we would do next. We tell ourselves that the answer will come to us someday. Then, we will make our move. Or, when the economy improves, we'll go. But in the meantime, we stay where we are, stuck and unhappy. Your career does not get better unt...
  First, You Gotta Eat the Frog!
by Valerie Sokolosky - Oct, 2009
Want to become more productive? Want to be more productive not just today but every day? Then first, you gotta eat the frog. Mark Twain said it – if you eat a frog first thing in the morning that will probably be the worst thing you’ll do all day. Okay – we don’t mean literally eating one of those little green toads from the garden. Actually they’re too valuable to eat. But what we do mean is starting your day by tacking...
